healing-is-a-journey

Healers, energy workers, and those that work with others to help them heal from physical, emotional or spiritual traumas, illness and pain, often are ones that deal with much pain or illness themselves. In spiritual and metaphysical circles, many believe when one is ill, there is a deeper meaning or reason for it. Others believe we bring illness on ourselves because we take on other people’s pain, suffering and are not shielding ourselves well from negative energy that, in time can cause illness. Illness could be something manifesting due to not letting go or not having enough support from family and friends, or even issues from past lives. I’ve noticed some people see being ill or dealing with daily pain as a weakness, but I believe the opposite; seeing pain as a powerful teacher and lessons; something the strongest are able to handle. Perhaps they became strong because of pain. Interesting how that works.

How can a healer help others if they do not understand or have not experienced similar pain themselves? I may be able to help someone by having empathy or sympathy, and of course we all have lived different lives, traveling different paths and it can take a long time to experience everything, but I often tell people, “I can help you, although I may not have experienced what you have, I can help you with my intuitive abilities and empathically tuning into what you are experiencing.”

I spend much of my time around Vietnam Veterans, because my husband is one, and I tell them, “I have not experienced War and the suffering you have experienced; even though, I can help you, but I cannot relate to what it is like to be in a War.” That does not mean I cannot listen and help them. I can help remove the pain of the memories with them and help lessen the pain, but only they can heal it completely, with SpiritGod’s help. I am a guide, a loving hand, heart, ears and soul, there to help them along the way.

I experience a lot of pain myself and have at times turned to doctors to help me. I try not to take medications, but sometimes I need to. I try to use natural remedies as much as possible because my body is sensitive to chemicals. I do know all medicine is derived from base plants; it’s what’s added later that causes medications to affect people in a negative way. I also practice Reiki on myself. I cleanse my chakras and my energy often, especially if I have been around negative people or places. I use crystals and stones to help heal and do energy work. I pray for healing and for the strength to do what I need to do, regardless of pain. I meditate, listening for guidance and pay attention to the energy around me.  I have the right to tell doctor’s no if I feel something is not right for me. I can be mindful of changes and shifts within me and around me. My intentions are always positive.

Most would choose not to have any pain, but how would we understand pain if we have not experienced it? I would choose not to have it all the time or as often, but again, I know what I am here to do and who I am and that helps me to understand my pain. That doesn’t mean I love pain or want it, but I do understand it more and it has taught me many lessons. Just like the pain women have to bring our children into the world, it is soon forgotten because of love.

I do not claim to heal pain, I help others heal their pain and with loving energy I can help pain. I believe in miracles and I do accept some things just are and I do my best and keep moving forward. That’s what I help others do too, heal, grow and never give up!
