How to own yourself as a healer

I've been a healer for almost 14 years now. I started on this path in my late 20s, and when I think back to how I felt then, I can see how much has changed—and how much hasn't changed at all. One thing that really stands out is that my initial manifestation of being a healer was rooted in fear. In the beginning (and even now), there was so much fear around what being a healer meant: What would people think if they found out? Would it ruin our reputation? Was it safe? And of course, there were also lots of fears about myself—wouldn't others judge me harshly because of who they thought I should be rather than who they saw before them?

Sharing some details on what to recognize and what to disconnect with. Even if you are not a healer, you are an empath and a lightworker and these do relate to each one of us at some level.

Let go of the need to be perfect

  • Accept that you are human and therefore imperfect.

  • Accept that you will make mistakes, and learn from them as best you can.

  • Accept that sometimes, no matter how hard you try or how much effort goes into healing someone else's pain, it just won't work out for them at this time in their life--and that's okay! You did what was right for your client at the time; now let them move on without guilt or shame attached to their journey through life (and through healing).

  • Remember: there is no such thing as 'doing everything' or 'being able to help everyone.' That's just not possible because we all have our own limitations based on our personal experience with trauma and healing from trauma--and even within those limitations, there will still exist other factors outside of our control like geographical location (where we live), financial resources available (if any), etcetera.

Don't let other people's fears infect your own

It can be hard to hear when someone else is afraid of you, especially if they're close to you. This is especially true if that person has been conditioned to believe that healers are dangerous or evil. It's important not to take this personally--other people's fears are not your own. You cannot control other people's fears; you can only control your own fear and how it affects your life choices and actions.

Fear is a choice: whether we choose to let fear run our lives or not depends on our ability (or lack thereof) to handle it constructively when faced with challenging situations like these ones above where there may be no real danger present at all but only perceived threats based on past experiences or cultural beliefs about what should happen in certain situations such as those outlined above

Take care of yourself as well as others.

It's important to remember that you're not a machine, and you can't give all of your energy and attention to everyone else without taking care of yourself.

It's also okay if other people don't understand this! There will always be people who want us to do more than we can physically handle and who don't understand why we need downtime or are selfish for prioritizing it in our lives. They may even try to guilt trip us into believing that taking care of ourselves is an act against them (or, even worse, against others). But remember: the point isn't just about doing good work; it's also about maintaining your own mental health so that you can continue doing good work long term!

Do what you love, and see how it makes you feel.

You can do this by simply paying attention to how you feel after doing something. If what you're doing makes you feel good, it will probably help your healing journey. If it doesn't make you feel good, then maybe it isn't helping and should be avoided.

It's also important to recognize that sometimes things that make us happy aren't healthy (like eating too much chocolate). This is why knowing which activities boost our energy levels without draining them is so important in figuring out whether they benefit our health.

Honor your inner guidance system.

  • Connect with it by asking questions and listening to the answers.

  • Trust your intuition, even when it seems scary or out of place. This can be hard to do if you've been conditioned to think that trusting your gut is "impossible" or "dangerous." But if someone told you that they were going to cut off one of your limbs, would you trust them? Or would you run away as fast as possible? The same goes for trusting yourself when an inner voice tells you something isn't right--listen up! Not only does this keep us safe from harm (often physical), but it also helps us make better decisions about our lives overall because we're listening more closely and being honest about what's important in our lives at any given moment; this includes both external things like work/school/relationships but also internal feelings such as fear or anger which may not always be comfortable but still need attention nonetheless.

  • When faced with situations where there may be no clear answer right away (e., decisions), take some time before making up your mind so that way when making a decision based on intuition rather than logic already had some time passes, allowing ideas/thoughts to come, together more easily.

  • Trusting yourself means knowing when something doesn't feel right despite others telling you otherwise: sometimes, other people don't understand why certain things matter so much because they aren't experiencing them themselves.

You are always a healer.

We all have the ability to heal others, and we can use our gifts to help others by being present and listening. We can also help by giving them space and time, which is sometimes the best thing we can do for someone who needs healing.

We can also help by being a good example of someone who is healthy and well. It can be tempting to give advice or tell people what they should do, but sometimes it’s best to listen, offer support, and let them know you are there for them.

The more you own your healing gifts, the more empowered you feel. You also become more open and available to others because you no longer have to hide behind a mask of perfectionism or fear. Finally, knowing who you are as a healer makes it much easier for other people to trust in what they need from their own inner guidance system as well!

Reiki healing is a holistic healing technique that aims to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being by balancing and harmonizing the body's energy systems. Some people can feel a tingling sensation when in contact with others. This is known as empathy and is often associated with being able to sense someone else's emotions without saying anything verbally (in other words: mind reading). During a Reiki session, the practitioner uses their hands to channel and direct energy into the recipient's body, with the intention of helping to clear blockages and restore balance to the energy system. This energy is believed to flow through the practitioner's hands into the recipient's body, promoting relaxation, reducing stress, and enhancing the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Reiki healing can be beneficial for a wide range of physical and emotional conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue, and insomnia. It can also help to improve overall well-being, increase self-awareness and spiritual growth, and promote a sense of calm and inner peace.
