The path of the Healer isn’t for the faint of heart, especially when you’re still learning to heal yourself. I find myself often wondering who heals the healer? Sure, faith makes a fine pillow, but there isn’t much rest here for a weary soul. I understand why many healers never embrace their calling; because they’re so bogged down by their own mental health.
I speak of my personal struggles openly because so many of us struggle in similar ways, but do so in silence with no one to turn to because we try so hard to blend in and appear “normal.” I want anyone walking this path who feels the way I do to know they are not alone. As a Wounded Healer, it is important to take time for your own mental health as well. You can give of yourself and share your heart but setting boundaries is vital to the sanctity of your gifts.
I’ve always been quiet about my gifts, and with good reason. Society is straight up savage! Come out talking about being a Healer and watch the adversity you’re faced with. You will be mocked, ridiculed, tested and even laughed at most of the time. Stand in your authenticity anyway!
Suppressing your gifts only creates more anxiety and additional stress. Healing gifts are a constant FLOW, and when not used properly, the energy of these gifts can backfire and create all kinds of trouble. And remember, the ones who need your guidance will gravitate toward you anyway while the others will simply fall back because they cannot tune in to your higher frequency.
Transmutation of suffering into healing is the Wounded Healer’s most precious gift of all and that healing helps the entire world evolve in consciousness. It starts with you!
