Farrelly, Frances - Remote diagnosis using blood
Type of Spiritual Experience
BackgroundFrom an interview in 1957
A description of the experience
Christopher Bird: How do you work with doctors?
FARRELLY: I am sent a sample of the patient's blood. I no longer sit with the patient; all of my work now is done in absentia.
I also have a form which they fill out about their patients, which contains standard statistical information requests, as well as any history that may be important to the current complaint. The reason I ask for a current history is because there might be something I need to check which would fall outside the routine diagnosis I ordinarily do. For example, ordinarily I don't check the eyes or ears or parts of the brain. But if the history warrants or a special request is made, I can go into the specific areas in detail.
CBird: What's your procedure in diagnosing, your methodology?
FARRELLY: I do a physical report on the various organs and glands of the body, as well as a vitamin assay. In addition, I check the remedies of Edward Bach, M.D., M.B., D.P.H., who was a homeopathic physician. These are homeopathic remedies made in England for treatment of what Dr. Bach calls "the problems of the spirit of man, such as anger, concern, conflict, jealousy, and so on."
Also, if the doctor asks for it, I run allergy tests on about 700 allergens and am further able to select and suggest suitable dietary supplements for the patient.
I work for about as many MDs and osteopaths, as I do chiropractors. Of course it depends on each doctor's professional limitations in what I would suggest for his patient. This also applies to the selection or suggestion of medications, or if I feel that surgery is indicated. I have to keep within the realms of what each person's license permits him to do.
CBird: Do you only diagnose for doctors?
FARRELLY: Yes. I don't do it for individuals because I would then be both diagnosing and prescribing, which would be outside the law.
CBird: Then the only way for someone personally to use your services is to find a doctor who is sympathetic and understanding to your methods of diagnosis.
FARRELLY: That's right. But there are more and more doctors willing to work with patients in this manner, although when I began doing this back in the 1940s, there were hardly any physicians willing to work with me or their patients on this basis. Yet most of the ones I work with still wish to remain anonymous. So I leave it up to each particular doctor if they wish to disclose our association…Currently I work with about 70 doctors across the country, many of whom have been using my services for over ten years now.
CBird: How do you get yourself in a state to do a diagnosis?
FARRELLY: I just focus my attention on the blood sample and data starts coming about the person. Also, it helps immensely to focus my attention when the diagnosis is a challenge to me. But if I received a report that indicated that someone was getting gas from eating onions, that's no challenge. I would just naturally, without psychically looking into it, think, "Well, why the devil are they eating onions!"
CBird: Are you able to turn on and off at will?
FARRELLY: Yes, over the years it's become an automatic thing. I just go into a state — probably an altered state of consciousness — by merely focusing my attention on the case at hand. And I know I'm not in a trance, because I am still aware of what's going on around me, yet I'm not disturbed by it. I was once tested on a bio-feedback machine which showed that I apparently slip very easily in and out of alpha (alpha brainwave state) which is necessary since I have to come back up again to write my report as I go along.
CBird: How do you distinguish between the patient's ailment and your own?
FARRELLY: Sometimes when I'm looking at the patient and I'm not sure whether it's his pain or mine, then I will ask myself, "What's the matter with me?" If the pain goes away, then I know it's the patient's and not mine.
CBird: Since you feel and sense things, do you ever see anything visually?
FARRELLY: I'm a very poor clairvoyant. I do see psychically, but it's not normal for me. And it has to be rather dark, not full light. During such times I have seen colors about the person — like the aura other people describe — and then I see a dark spot in the area of the person where there's a problem. But I don't have full control over this at all, because sometimes I see and sometimes I don't. The feeling part is the one I can rely on much more steadily. And when I'm testing from a blood sample, I do not feel the pain or the emotional factors of the person.
