“I never, in a million years, imagined I would have a TV show, let alone be on the cover of TV Weekly, so it’s interesting,” Charlie Goldsmith says from Melbourne, Australia. Charlie has a unique gift that truly defies belief — he has the ability to heal people of severe pain, chronic injuries, immune conditions and more in about a minute. He’s the subject of TLC’s profound new docuseries The Healer, premiering Monday.
Charlie first discovered his gift at age 18 while on a health retreat in Queensland. He was eating breakfast when he reached for a knife and fork.
“My hands literally pulled together like they were forced,” he shares. “I was like, ‘Oh, that was weird,’ and I pulled my hands apart. I could feel a very strong magnetism between both of my hands. … In my head, I’m like, ‘I’m sick. There’s something really wrong with me.’”
Another person on the retreat asked if he was OK. He told them he wasn’t and proceeded to explain and show what he was feeling.
“She put her hand up, and she was like, ‘Oh my God, what is that?’” A crowd eventually gathered, and one woman put her hand up, but she was different.
“I could feel a lump that was in the air that was, to me, very tangible. I don’t know why, but I just really wanted to smooth out the lump. I had no idea what I was doing, or why I was doing it. I guess I didn ’t even really question it. … I just focused on moving this lump,” Charlie explains.
He continued to focus his energy on the lump until it was gone. Emotionally moved, the woman explained how she hadn’t been able to bend her finger in years until he healed it.
“I didn’t know that people could heal people, or that anything like that existed. It kind of shocked me,” Charlie admitted. “I ran to the phone box and called my dad. That was the start.”
Since then Charlie has been sharing his gift whenever he can. He refuses to charge people and has purposely not made his gift an occupation (he owns and operates a marketing firm). In the premiere episode of The Healer, Charlie helps a woman suffering from complex regional pain syndrome to walk again, cures an 18-year-old boy from the effects of Lyme disease and helps a car accident victim.
Through medical studies he’s currently participating in, and working with the medical community, which you’ll see in the series, Charlie hopes to bring greater legitimacy to his gift.
“I wish I could help everyone,” he admits. “There are a lot of people that are going to want my help, and I can’t help everyone. But I hope, eventually that if someone wants someone like me, they’ll be able to find them.”
