Abstract

Muhammad Arfaiz (MA) is a healer with a strong spiritual experience. This study aims to describe in depth the spiritual journey of MA. The research method used in this study uses a qualitative biographical method to understand the process and stages of the subject's spiritual awakening. Data collection uses direct and indirect in-depth interviews with MA. Biographical analysis techniques are used to identify a series of stories chronologically and comprehensively about his life experiences. The results of the study include: 1)Spiritual crisis, namely experiencing weird illnesses, seeking treatment, dialogue with demons, attempting suicide, and experiencing out-of-body experiences; 2)Spiritual emergence, namely the spiritual awakening of MA followed by clairvoyance and being able to access religious symbols as well as several characters, 3)Spiritual seeker: the search for a job that is appropriate to spirituality, which includes getting a life teacher (visible or invisible), and the second acceleration of puberty. 4)Become a healer, full-time, using several healing methods, including egg acupressure, long-distance bioenergetic and bioenergetic, chakra methods, opening auras, aura points, maximizing chakra points, palm reading, psychics, healing through nerve points, face acupressure, and tai chi. These results are expected for psychology to be able to clearly distinguish between pathology and spiritual awakening.
