Healing in Relation to Stilling

Posted by Gaidan Roids on 22.01.01 00:00

My theory is one in reference to the Healing of stilling. When Nynaeve Healed Siuan and Leane their strengths were not even a quarter of what they once were, but when she Heals Logain his strength is just the same as it was, if not more so. I believe that if Siuan and Leane want to be truly Healed then they must be Healed by a man, because the opposite forces of saidin and saidar at work.

wotmania says: The reason Siuan and Leane were not Healed correctly is most likely either that they were Healed by a woman, or they were Healed with a weave primarily of Fire and Earth. Perhaps to Heal a woman more Water and Air must be used? Tough debate to settle.

In WH, Damar has Healed one of those Burned out Reds COMPLETLY.
As to wether it needs specific weaves: Nynaeve used all the weaves when she did. It is more likely that the Male way of healing is needed. The Male way probably needs Fire (when Flinn Healed Rand, I think Rand felt warmth) but it is also a philosophy. As females HAVE to use Water to stop a flame, men HAVE to use Fire to absorb it etc. There are other things like the way they Travel.
If women must use the Power in a different way, it is unlikely women can do what Flinn did.
BTW, I think the way the unStilling was mentioned was too low key. After all, we know Moiriane is going to need it.

I'm pretty sure everyone already figured that out long ago! I'm suprised anyone would even think to post it. On the other hand, I agree with you

Makes complete sense

This makes complete sense. Saidin and Saidar have always as been betrayed as opposites, this is just a continuation of that point.
