How do you properly direct love energy out to someone else and their significant other without spelling yourself into the spell? How can you heal others without taking the illness into you? Do you have to know a bit about what you are healing before you actually heal it?

Ok, I'm going to split these questions up into two sections.
"How do you properly direct love energy out to someone else and their significant other without spelling yourself into the spell? How can you heal others without taking the illness into you?"
By addressing your energy and spell work to that intent. You can cast a love spell (although I don't recommend it personally) on others that doesn't affect yourself by writing a spell to that effect. Although typically such spells are less successful because the castor is detached from the situation and the intent is simply not as strong. With a healing spell you would not normally take any negativity into yourself but rather banish any negative energies that are there by your preferred method.
"Do you have to know a bit about what you are healing before you actually heal it?"
That depends on how you are attempting to heal the individual. If you are granting your energy in the hopes to help their recovery then no not really as such a spell is typically meant to help the person feel better without physical recovery on your part, this in turn then helps them recover faster on their own part. If you are attempting a more physical intervention through the use of various herbs, poultices, etc then some background of how to help the individual and what the medicines (which is essentially what they are just unrefined) are actually doing.

you need to be specific. visualize the person or persons involved and the desired outcome, don't think about yourself at all. focus only on them. this being said, sometimes the caster can get tangled up in the spell. example, you heal someone of a sickness, but it was something they were suppose to suffer through as a lesson. you took this lesson away, so you will get sick because the universe/gods want to show you what you did wrong.
mind you, this doesn't happen that often, so long as you meditate before doing it so you're sure it's the right thing to do. as well, like i said, while casting, you are clear, precises, and focused on the person or persons. if you're casting a spell for someone else, you shouldn't have anything to do with the magic or energy apart from casting it in a direction.
