Doing this kind of work that i talk about on this site…
some call us ‘healers’
Applying for this work at festival is often with a ‘healers application’
I still do that
I will go in the healers tickbox if needed as such.
I don’t really call myself a ‘healer’ as such
when working with others in their sessions/workshops/training
I’m not the one doing the healing…
the individual or group and the work that are doing that part of the work…
And that which I’ve seen occur when i work with others in their healing….
feels very much to me…
that’s them healing themselves…
So technically i’m not doing any healing
I’m just assisting
Assisting with authenticity, integrity, non-judgement and listening
I hold space, I work to assist with tools from the toolbox of techniques, processes, experiences…in my field I hold that awareness of potential of transformation evolution, conscious change…
Can this really be classed as healing?
Really, I’m just assisting…
Assisting this accessing connection to inner wisdom and abilities to self-heal,
and to find those healing pieces…to step into our empowerment with our gifts – our treasures
and at the level of the body…encourage homeostasis where it can more easily heal itself….
Even those that do that
laying on of hands
they’re just awakening and assisting
that self-healing ability
within that individual being worked with
and it’s that individual allowing that ‘healing’, flowing energy to come in….
what is it they say
‘you can lead a horse to water
but you can’t make it drink’?
With the work,
It’s the individual themselves has to choose to drink….to work with these techniques…if they choose….
no need of belief…
merely to allow it to happen….
with much appreciation to all those that have assisted this work develop…
how can those of us that work in this field be accurately called a ‘healer’
when it could be said that we are just part of a space
where the work….and the individual themselves…
are doing the healing where it occurs…
and me too,
I’ve been working hard on healing myself…
with a lot of assistance from others along the way…
but its up to me to do it…
Wait one moment?
Does that mean
I could be classed as a healer?
at so many times
like the complexity and beauty of
mending the skin from a cut,
recovering from a cold….
this is us healing ourselves then?
and the list goes on….
of the amount we heal ourselves from….
and the amount we can heal ourselves from….
does that mean
that all of us…
are healers too….
Not sure where that leaves the healers label…
a message to all you healers out there (which is all of us, which is you reading this)
With this self-healing…
there is extra assistance can be had on the way.
From those trained and experienced in this field….
who can potentially
‘put some lights to help find your way’ (as one lovely put it)
as you do it yourself.
you amazing bundle of wisdom, experience and self-healing capacity you.
