My Grandmother was a Healer
As a child I wanted to help people, to heal people. Sadie, my grandmother, always discouraged my interest. Sadie had been a healer and facilitated many profound healings but became disillusioned and stopped altogether. “It is pointless to heal someone’s illness if you do not heal the cause of the illness, because it just comes back in some other form,” she said. Her statement always weighed heavy in my thoughts and greatly affected me and my calling as an energy, visioning practitioner and teacher.
The desire to help and the desire to be of service are not always one and the same. One can be ego based, masked by good intentions and the other is selfless. True compassion is allowing people to be right where they are. From that stance, lasting and true healing can occur. For most of us it is a process. The physical body is quite resilient in healing, when brought into a true and positive alignment with the Real Self.
I am often called by loved ones to intervene on someone’s behalf. Unless someone is open to healing on a soul level, intervention can be disruptive, with the clashing of egos and wills. True healing may seem incomprehensible, though our illnesses have the potential to take us to the heights of inner healing.
Early on in my energy practice, I would see people transformed in the presence of the Divine energies. Yet within moments of raising themselves off the healing table lifelong patterns often descended back upon them. Yes, they had a moment of respite. But the core issue was still waiting for them, and they immediately put the comfort of their wounded-self back on like a security blanket.
We live in a microwave/pill society. Fix me quick! Take a pill that will make it all go away. The bone may be set and heal, but the internal suffering goes on. Healing is undermined by our insecurities and fears, until that internal suffering is clearly and compassionately brought into the Son Light of Spirit.
So, what to do? I am clear that people participate in and awaken into their healing. For most of us, learning to love ourselves is the hardest lesson of all. People often confuse self-love with vanity and being self-centered. The love I am speaking of is indeed quite the opposite. Self-love lays the foundation for unconditional love, peace and acceptance for oneself, others and joy! Each healing session I participate in now is about healing at the core and experiencing one’s true Divine nature, which is love.
