Bruno Groening Healing: How to Experience the “Heilstrom” (Healing Flow)

Bruno Groening Healing: How to Experience the “Heilstrom” (Healing Flow)

And that’s when it started.

A very peculiar sensation entered my big toe.

And with a tickle, it made its way up through my whole body, and into my neck.

It reached my head. And that’s when I got a headache, as intense as during the worst times of my disease. But there was also a new pain in my head that I hadn’t experienced up until then.

Suddenly I noticed pulling and piercing sensations in my body’s midsection. At the right side, at the left, then it expanded into my lower body… And I felt the tingling and pulling in my arms, all the way into my fingertops.

This was the heilstrom.


At the end of the meeting, the pain left. Suddenly, I was free from pain and felt so light, as if a heavy burden was relieved from me.”

– Grete Häusler


There are many people like Grete Häusler. Thousands have experienced the “heilstrom” and received healing.

According to Bruno Groening, the heilstrom (“healing flow” or “healing stream”) is nothing less than the divine force.

And it is also accessible to you.

This article will tell you how to exactly tune in to this divine energy.



How do you “tune in” to the Heilstrom?

To receive the “heilstrom” (or healing flow), the only thing you must do, according to Bruno Groening, is to “tune in”. He called this (in German): “einstellen”.

Bruno Groening has suggested that, at least once or twice per day, you sit down for this.

But how do you actually “tune in”?

There are two parts to this einstellen. The postition of your body and your mindset.



A. Posture of the body

Bruno Groening Healing: tune in to the heilstrom - body posture
An open posture, with arms and legs uncrossed and palms of the hands upward

The idea is to be open and receiving to the divine flow, so this is reflected in the body position:

It is suggested that you:

  • sit on a chair
  • with arms and feet uncrossed
  • and with the palms of both hands turned upwards in an open and receiving gesture
  • the spine is unsupported and straight (if possible) and relaxed

This position will really help you to feel the flow. And the hands-up position encourages the feeling of a tingling or pulsating sensation in the palms of your hands.

So, sit in this position if you can.


If you can’t sit in this position

That said, if you can’t sit in this position (maybe because of illness or other reasons), don’t stress over it.

Healings have been reported from people with a handicap (and unable to uncross arms or legs), from people who have been held up by others, and from people who were lying down, even though their posture wasn’t fully as described above.

You could also stand. Many people practice it standing.

The most important seems to be your mindset anyway.


B. Mindset

There is a specific attitude you need to tune in to the Heilstrom or Healing Flow.


1. You must believe that healing is possible.

The nature of the illness is irrelevant – the decisive factor is the will to recover and to be open to the idea that God is the greatest physician. You don’t need to be 100% certain that it will happen, although a firm belief would help. But, at the least, you need to be open to the idea that it might happen.

(After all, that’s nothing less than a truth, nobody knows for sure what will happen in the next 20 minutes of his life.)

So anything might happen. Be open for possibilities.

“Trust and believe that Divine energy helps and heals.” (Bruno Groening)


2. Have an intention to heal.

You must want it. It might be a physical ailment or disease you want relief from, or your pain might be related to any other area of your life, but in any case you must want relief and healing, and your intention should be set on it. This means you have to actively ask for it. Ask God, ask the universe, ask Bruno Groening.

You could also visualize yourself being healthy. That will also set your intent.

And another approach that is used a lot, is to visualize giving your pains or illnesses to Bruno Groening (or to his image) in front of you.


3. Have an open and receiving mindset.

After having asked for healing and having set your intention… you let go.

Calm your thoughts, and let the healing process do its work. Be humble. Focus on the “feeling of receiving”.

“Ask”, don’t “demand”.

It’s a lot like fishing: once your line is cast (once your intention is sent out), you sit, observe and receive.


4. Observe

Allow the Heilstrom/Healing Flow to enter your body through your palms, feet and top of your head. Be open to the possibility that it is healing you. Even when you don’t feel anything. Trust the process. Be open for what happens.

Focus on healing, let it go & observe what your intention has created in your body.

Place your attention lightly on your body. Observe the sensations. Just feel what’s happening.

By having followed the steps above, you are now receiving healing. And there will be sensations because of this.


5. Ignore negativity

Another important aspect is that, during the process, you have to ‘disconnect’ yourself from the negativity and disease in your body. The idea is that you release and let go of it.

Do not focus on illnesses or worries or problems. Say to yourself: “I distance myself from this negativity and am not focusing on it anymore.”

On the contrary, you want to put your whole attention on getting healthy. Just focus on your connection to the divine and the heilstrom.

You could think about something beautiful or about something that makes you feel good. You could also play beautiful music to help you with this if you wanted to.

It’s also very important to realize that, from now off on, everything that you feel is not a part of being ill anymore. Rather it is a result of the process of healing.

So, ignore negative thoughts, just let them be and focus on the positive and on the heilstrom.



Using Bruno Groening’s image (or praying to him)

Another idea  that you can use while “einstellen” is this: you can “give” all of your pains and problems to Bruno Groening.  Just mentally send all of your troubles to him, to deal with and to transform.

Reading this testimonial where Grete Häusler describes her healing in 1950 will explain:

Later Bruno Groening stood before us

He was very serious and concentrated, and said:

“Give me all of your illnesses and your worries! You won’t be able to cope with them alone. I’ll carry them for you. But give them to me of your own free will – I won’t steal them!”

And again I had such a strange feeling. Who is he that he can say such a thing?

But I did know one thing:

In my whole life I had never before had such an offer, and I also knew that I would never again during the rest of my life meet a person that would make me such an offer.

Therefore at that moment I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

So I wanted to do it. But how?

I didn’t know how to give him my chronic sinusitis, or the damaged liver or the pancreas that produced too little sugar! I really didn’t know how to do that.

And since I had no other choice, I did it like a child

I thought to myself, “There, you have my three ailments. You have my incurable mother. You have all the misfortune and all the mad things going on in my life – I don’t want them any more!” And at that moment I was rid of it all . . .

When the people had left the room and my friend and I were still alone, I noticed that I no longer had a headache, that I had no pulling, no tingling, no pain near my waist – that I no longer had anything at all and only had a wonderful, light feeling, as light as if I had lost 100 pounds of heaviness and fatigue.

I was filled with a feeling of happiness such as I had never known before.

– source


To help with this visualization, some people use a physical box that they put in front of them. They then mentally put their illnesses and problems into the box for Bruno Groeinng to transform.



You don’t have to use his image

You don’t have to talk to Bruno Groening or use his image, but some people do prefer this because it helps them stay connected with “the divine healing power”.

It strengthens their belief that healing in this way is possible.

After all, Bruno Groening was a living example of the divine force and showed this profusely throughout his life. Thinking about him helps people remind themselves of what’s possible. It motivates.


This is not a cult for Bruno Groening

This is not about focusing on, and worshipping him.

No, as BG himself said over and over again:

“I don’t heal, It heals.” (BG)


In the continuation of the testimonial from the beginning of this article, Grete Häusler mentions after she has received the healing:

Then Bruno Groening stepped into the room.

I ran up to him and pressed his hand, saying:

“I thank you, Mr. Groening. I feel completely well now!”

He looked at me piercingly and replied:

“Yes, you not only feel well, you are well. But don’t thank me, thank God! I didn’t do it”.


You might want to experiment when “tuning in”

At some point during the einstellen, it can be good to let your intention just be as it is, and to not ‘”will it” any more. It’s a good idea to be able to relax in the process, and focus on the passive “feeling of receiving”.

But you might be interested to know that different people do it in different ways:

Some have a more active session, where they repeatedly state their intention (in their mind) over and over again. They might repeat the words in their head. Like a prayer. Or they continue the visualizations of them being healthy or of giving their pains to Bruno. These are active ways of “einstellen”.

Others take a more passive approach. After stating their intention, they let go of their mind, and take a receiving stance and focus on the sensations in their body. This is a more silent session, more like some meditation practices, where people observe their body.


There’s no one way to do it

There’s no rule. See what comes up for you. It might change as well from moment to moment. Some go back and forth between praying and observing.

The guideline is to “tune in” (“einstellen”). But how exactly this is done differs from person to person.

Ultimately there’s no one way of doing it that’s good for everyone.



If you notice you’re feeling too “heavy” while sitting and observing, it might be a good idea to reconnect to your intention and restate it innerly. In this way you might feel the inspiration again.

But again; that’s no rule. Sometimes it might feel good to just accept all there is at the moment. Even if you feel heavy.

You need to do it the way you feel inspired to do at any given moment.

And the way you do it, can change over time. It might change from morning to evening, or from one week to another.



When tuning in, it is possible that the symptoms or ailments appear to be getting worse. (Like what happened in the testimonial in the beginning of this article.) It doesn’t always happen, but it’s good to know that it can.

You might get discomforts like a headache. Reactions like tiredness, weakness, fever, even vomiting are possible as well.

It can happen while tuning in, or it may happen the day or days after tuning in. Bruno Groening called these “regelungen”, or in English “adjustments”.

It’s just something that can happen at times. Something that may be necessary to some people.

This is simply a process of cleansing. Not a relapse, but rather a continuation of the healing process.

„Whoever gets headaches, I say ‘excellent’, because there is the healing reaction; now this process must go on and work on the organ, (…).” – Bruno Groening

If you’d feel safer, it would be a good idea to remain under the supervision of your doctor. If you have trust in your doctor, by all means visit him, and take medications as directed.


What time do you choose to “tune in”?

Just like we need food to live, we also need to regularly tune in again to the Divine to be nurtured on another level.

All around the world, the “Friends of Bruno Groening” aim to do this at least twice daily: once at 9.00 am, and once at 9.00 in the evening.

There’s no obligation whatsoever. If you can’ tmake the morning session because of work, then only do the evening session.


The exact time doesn’t matter

You see, it doesn’t matter at all whether you do it at those exact times. Any time really is suitable to ‘tune in”. (This is not about “the same moment” anyway, because timezones vary, and while it’s 9 am where you are, it might be 4pm somewhere else on the planet.)

But the point is, this setup is there help you to persevere with the practice. By knowing that many others are doing it as well at the same moment of their day, you feel connected and supported.

But basically: you could do how it at any time you want, and as many times per day you want,


General “tuning-in date”

Aside from the daily times to tune in, there’s also a weekly moment that’s offered to everyone who is interested. This moment is every Monday at 9 pm (in summertime at 10 pm).

Circle of friends

Another big help to stay motivated are the monthly gatherings of the “Friends of Bruno Groening”.

There are groups all over the planet that come together (once a month usually). So you might want to check if there is a meeting close to where you live.

Summing up

The process of “einstellen” is very easy. Just sit in a position that encourages your mind to be open to receiving. Believe that healing is possible and ask for it. Then observe your body and receive.

Don’t worry, there’s no real ‘correct’ way of doing it. Go with your feeling.

You could also ask Bruno Groening for help and even send your problems and illnesses to him so he may transform them.

It is important however, to let go of the negativity and ‘set it aside’. Believe that you are healing at every moment, don’t see yourself as being ‘sick’ or ‘ill’.


We’ll end with the inspiring words of Grete Häusler again:

“At the end of the meeting, the pain left. Suddenly, I was free from pain and felt so light, as if a heavy burden was relieved from me.”

– Grete Häusler

  1. I am on prescribed medication for 2 and a half years for depression and anxiety. The side effects are terrible and I read of the danger these drugs will cause to other body organs later on.
    these drugs numb the emotions and have affected my talents in music and writing. So I am extremely very desperate and determined to give them up
    From all that I’ve learnt and read on Bruno’s healing I have begun doing Einstelling at 9 pm every night.
    If there’s a way to connect with groups online at specific times I would be truly grateful to join with them.
    God Bless to all.

Lots of conventional ways of helping this condition, i.e. cranio sacral therapy I am not so sure about and it costs a lot if money for lots if sessions. I want to believe that Bruno Groening will help my son. Thank you.

  6. Hi

    I am very pleased to see this excellent description of Bruno G’s healing method. It works, and everyone can do it. It is indeed the natural healing method available to all. It can be even more powerful in a group setting, and all over the world many independent groups are forming, unconnected to the Friends, but with similar goals. I hope that many people find and use the prayerful healing method, as I and my friends in UK have done, and have greatly benefitted from. No matter what the problem or burden, it can be helped and resolved. Your voice and your pleas will be heard! Trust and Have faith! – the divine energy helps and heals.

    • Watch for *my* part. If it’s yours NOone can take it away from you not even god. It’s that important!. Be strong believe always and fight for your complete healing. Then bruno is very much able to help. Find a nearby community cause healing stream is much much much more stronger there. Wish you all the best for you and all around you.
