Prayers

Maybe this question it is strange but I would like to know something.

When we want to feel better, heal our sickness
we chant the mantra.

What do we do if we want using the same mantra
to heal someone else?

What happens in our heads?
We visualize this person?
Pronounce the name?

How to use the healing mantra for someone else's benefit?

I don't know, how it is done officially.
If i want to help a certain person I think of him/her while meditating - imagine the benefit as light and think how this light, coming from the Buddhas, helps the person. And i dedicate the merits afterwards "to this person and to all sentient beings, who are not this person." In this way the persons name is called out twice. ;)
When i'm able to conceive the person and the benefit he/she will receive with full heart, there is always some benefit.
But I learned: better not talk about it, because that weakens the process. :shrug:
Because, if our mothers, who have been kind to us
From beginningless time, are suffering,
What can we do with (just) our own happiness?

you should probably do Medicine Buddha sadhana. if you are interested i have a book where there is Medicine Buddha visualization and it works to heal completely the illness or sickness if its not karmic problem per se. if its just adventitious conditions as said in the book Medicine Buddha will work to heal it perfectly. also you can find the Medicine buddha sutra. and you should ask CNNR to give the medicine buddha mantra lung during his next retreat.

Yesterday and today I chant healing mantra for my girl
She write to me she feel bad,strenge ,and she dont know why.

Her problem is sugar in blood,sometimes is to low.

She write to me she feel strange and meaby her sugar is low again
but she dont know what is this strenge feeling and she is little upset /stres.

My question is:did I do something wrong and my chanting hurt her?
Or meaby my chanting is ok and this is the reason why she feel strenge?

Low blood sugar can make you feel strange. If it gets to low it can be very dangerous.

Your chanting didn't hurt her. She feels strange because of the physical issues you're describing it sounds like. I don't know what practice/mantra you are doing specifically, but you can first visualize the prayers and healing going towards yourself. Picture your afflictions are healed, then with a sense of pride and confidence picture the healing going towards her, and her afflictions being healed as well. At the end you can dedicate it to healing all other beings as well if you'd like.
