More spirit, smarter DPS, more CC. Get people to avoid damage and control mobs, and you'll be in a much better place as far as healing goes.

The easiest thing you could do is focus a mob that won't be cc'd (or the boss) and use.

#showtooltip
/cast [target=focus] Judgment

Also, your default self-cast key is alt. Maintaining a self-cast key (whatever you want it to be, alt works very well) is recommended. The options outside of that require quite a huge shuffle of keybinds.

As another poster said, /targetnearestenemy works.

A final thought is you could use

#showtooltip
/cast [target=targettarget] Judgment

This means you'll judge the target of your target; so if you're targeting the tank you'll jedge his target (the mob he's on) w/o changing targets yourself.

The showtooltip makes it so that if you have the macro icon set to the ?, it will show as the spell's normal icon. It also has the proper tooltip shown when you mouse over it.

Edit: Oh, and it will properly have the shadow "clock" cycling around the button to show the CD on the spell you want, if there are multiple spells in the macro.

This

It shows the tooltip as if it wasn't in a macro, i.e. accurate cd tracking and info display.

I love how self entitled you are in your original post.

Also healing is fine, welcome to post-Wotlk.

Why do you need to do /targetlasttarget as a healer? Are you keeping the tank targeted? If you want to keep an eye on the tank separately from the raid/party, you should either focus them, or get a raidframes mod that allows you to set up a separate/larger tank frame window. This frees you up to target the boss, which means you have access to critical healing-related information like buffs gained by the boss or how close he is to enrages/phase changes. And you just cast your judgment without a macro. An optional macro would be /cast [@target][@focustarget] Judgement (that'll default to your focus's target unless you have an enemy targeted).

Also, your hand of freedom macro should be a mouseover macro so you can cast it on others. /cast [@mouseover][@player] Hand of Freedom should do the trick - it'll default to you unless you're mousing over a friendly. And all your heals should be @mouseover macros unless you're using Clique/Healbot or similar.

/Targetnearestenemy
/cast Judgement
/Targetlasttarget.

Do not use this. Do not under any circumstances use this. It will break CC. It may also pull extra mobs, depending on where you like to stand.
