SIMON HINTON THE MODERN DAY WIZARD
SIMON HINTON - A MODERN DAY WIZARD WITH A MAGIC TOUCH
IN the 11th century, a religious group called
the Cathars appeared in Europe. Renowned for their healing powers, they were
fundamentally Christians who believed in good and evil. According to their
beliefs, the earth was created by the Devil and their souls had been tricked
out of Heaven. Many turned to them for help with health and other problems.
Cathars believed in reincarnation, but the Roman Catholic Church, having less
liberal views, did not approve and most of this loving community were murdered
or burnt at the stake in the Inquisition of the 13th century.
the years there have been reports of people believing they are reincarnated Cathars
and these have been growing in numbers recently. You can argue that it’s a
romantic idea that would appeal to those looking for a meaning to life or who
are searching for something to validate them. It’s certainly true that people
are turning away from traditional Christian religions in favour of other faiths
and spiritual paths.
with scientific medicine under the hammer, many are looking for natural ways to
mend, protect and strengthen their bodies. So, if you believe in reincarnation,
perhaps there’s no better time for the Cathars to return.
years ago I studied Reiki, which is a safe and gentle hands-on healing. I’ve
felt its benefits myself and friends have said my touch leaves them feeling
better. So I’ve been a believer in alterative therapy for a while and am always
open to new ideas on health and in spiritual enlightenment.
I was suffering lower back problems recently a friend suggested I see Simon
Hinton, who has a reputation as a powerful healer. Some even say he’s a modern
a former model, musician and entrepreneur, works out of the Charterhouse Clinic
near Baker Street, which is renowned for its alternative treatments. Among the
techniques he uses are light therapy and quantum healing - a mixture of Super
Reiki, Tachyon, Physic surgery and quantum power programming. The mix must be
working, as people flock to his practice, so it was with an open mind that I
took myself off to meet him last month.
first thing that hits you about Simon is that he looks nothing like a new age
guru; he’s more the sort of bloke you’d have a chat with about the match over a
pint in the pub rather than a deep discussion about the nature of the universe.
put me at my ease and I told Simon about my back and how I sometimes felt
stressed and anxious and that it was beginning to affect my everyday life. He
smiled as he told me that these problems were connected, as the lower back is
where all the stress is held and can be released if you become tired or
hyperactive. “Don’t worry,” he said, “we’ll soon get you cleaned up.”
asked me to lie down and placed laser lights on the chakra points of my body.
These are natural UV lights in red, violet and infrared and their energy
penetrates the body, interacting with various molecules. This sets in motion a
chemical reaction within each cell that restores normal function. Immediately I
he placed Tachyon boots on my feet. Tachyon is an energy that moves faster than
light and can help in the mental and emotional area as well as removing energy
blockages that lead to tiredness. I felt an immediate effect - some parts of my
feet felt a little painful, with a tingle running up them – but Simon said that
was quite normal. So I relaxed and the sensation subsided within a few minutes.
whole atmosphere was relaxing, from the new age music to the aromatherapy
burning. As I relaxed, I seemed to feel an energy running up and down my body
although at times there was a tingling pain that was a little uncomfortable in
some parts of my body. Simon assured me this was just my Chakra being cleaned
and explained that the points that are blocked can be stubborn, hence the
tingling. He placed a lavender pillow over my eyes and again bid me to relax.
studied Kabalah, an ancient mystical Jewish religion, back in the 1990s – long
before Madonna and her gang made it fashionable, he is swift to point out. He
found it an intriguing alternative to the traditional Christian religion he had
been brought up with and began to devour books on healing, the occult and other
religions. He became aware of his own powers after a visit to the Egyptian
pyramids, when he became overpowered by visions.
the advice of a girlfriend who was a massage therapist, Simon went on a Reiki course,
where he turned out to be a gifted student. “I’m not sure what had happened at
the course but that evening I was at friends place and their cat would just not
leave me alone. I started to stroke it and eventually it went into a
trance-like state – everyone in the room was shocked, including myself,” Simon
told me as he laid his hands on my lower legs. Taking a deep breath, he started
what he calls “Super Reiki.” Whatever it is, it feels amazing; it’s as though
my body is being lifted from the couch.
believes that more and more people from the Cathar movement of the 13th century are coming to see him.
They have been re born and because of their horrific deaths (they were burned
at the stake) their souls are damaged in this lifetime and they need healing.
The lady on the reception desk is Cathar, he says, in a matter-of-fact way.
that should have been my cue to remember I’d left the cooker on and make a
swift exit! But I was so relaxed and was experiencing such euphoria he could
have told me he was bringing back the Manson Family and I’d just have nodded
all, what harm could it do? So many wars have been fought and millions killed
over other religions and so-called gods and there’s about as much evidence for
them as for Santa or the tooth fairy. I’ve always had a dislike of hard core
Christians, or anything fanatical, and have been interested in the concept of
reincarnation since reading “Many lives, Many Masters” by Brian Weiss
back in the 1990s. It’s the story of a prominent psychiatrist and his patient
and her past lives.
a subsequent session Simon told me that I was a Cathar in a past life but had
escaped unharmed. For me, the jury is still out on this side of Simon’s therapy
but I have no doubts that everything else he did was making me feel better.
took off the Tachyon boots and began to hold my feet. I was looking forward to
this as I love reflexology and could have my feet massaged for hours. But to my
horror, a searing pain hit my foot as Simon pressed down. “Go with it, Steven,
it’s clearing it all up,” Simon urged, as he revealed he was using virtually no
surprised I did not kick Simon into next week, the pain was so intense but,
suddenly, it eased, and as he moved around my feet they react to the pressing
with different degrees of discomfort.
called Psychic surgery,” Simon told me, nothing to do with reflexology. He
returned to my feet and the pain subsided. Nobody seems to know how Psychic
surgery works; some believe it’s a gift. It’s also known as barehanded surgery
and is a very popular way of healing in the Philippines.
re-composed me and I became relaxed again as le laid his healing hands back on
me. This time he called for my spirit guide, angels and others to lead me to
the path of success and healing.
at this point, you might be saying “Give me a break!” but all I can tell you is
that it felt truly amazing. And is it that much different from asking God or
the baby Jesus to help you out? Prayers do seem to help millions of people and
this was certainly helping me.
the left side of my body went ice cold. The sceptic in me removed my lavender
eye mask and asked Simon if a fan was on. “It’s just a spirit,” he said, in the
same casual tone you’d use if Aunt Mavis popped in to borrow a cup of sugar.
and half hours later, I felt like I had taken some wonder drug, although I
could barely stand. Simon steadied me and gave me some water, then performed a
ritual to bring me back to down to earth.
hour later, I was in a meeting but my sight was not right and I felt quite odd,
almost drunk. Simon had warned me not to dash around and take at easy for a few
hours as this was my first treatment. By the evening, however, everything was
back to normal except for the wonderful feeling that I could take on the world.
The next day was even better - my back was fine and I had a great feeling of
happiness. One of my friends noticed I was different, wondering whether I’d had
botox or a facial.
may think this sounds like a load of self-indulgent nonsense, and with prices
up £200 a time, it’s certainly not cheap. But, from my experience, I can
certainly say that it worked. If you open yourself up to it, you can feel like
a new person. It’s not something most of us could afford on a weekly basis but,
like an MOT for the car, it’s a must for the soul and body, and I would
recommend saving for it.
