You Are A Healer… You Just Don’t Know It Yet

You Are A Healer! You might not know it yet, but it’s true. We all have an innate ability to heal. It is programmed into our DNA.   Every single one of us is born with the gift of healing. Think about it, what is the first thing you do when you bang your head or your knee? You rub it…this is instinct, your instinct as a healer. Why do pregnant mothers walk around rubbing their bellies all day? Again, healing instinct. They’re directing healing to their unborn child without even knowing it. The problem is that healing is not reinforced for the children in most homes, so we essentially ‘forget’ how to heal.

I was a regular guy, with a regular job, bookkeeping for a property management company.  Then one day everything changed.  I found out a family member had cancer.  I got really interested in health and started hearing about a healing method anyone could do…Reiki.  After reading a book and having a session, I booked myself into the next available class.

I went to class skeptical to say the least, yet hopeful that everything I had read and heard about Reiki was true. I did not have a spiritual background and certainly wasn’t ‘sensitive’ to energies.  I certainly didn’t believe I had any special gifts as a healer. How could I go to class for a single day and leave with healing abilities? The other students in class seemed to be having these amazing, mystical experiences, but I didn’t feel much of anything. 

At the end of class, when it was time to practice on each other, I still felt nothing, but the people I practiced on all raved about how hot my hands were. I still wasn’t convinced. I actually left class that day unsure if I was a healer, or if I had just been had! In the days and weeks that followed, I received feedback and confirmations that it was indeed working. I practiced on willing family members, friends and co-workers…all of whom would report back to me that my hands felt like they were on fire, that their headaches had disappeared and many even started requesting healings. One day I was thoroughly amazed when the energy turned on spontaneously when I touched somebody with a disfigured hand. I was a healer!  

Little did I know how taking this one-day workshop would change my life…I quickly moved on to level 2 and eventually became a Reiki Master so I could begin passing this incredible gift on to others.  I certainly am not special in my healing abilities.  While other healing methods sometimes take months or even years to learn, Reiki uses something called an attunement (a sacred ceremony), to instantly open your healing channels.  The attunement ensures that anyone who wants to re-discover their healing abilities can do so in short order.

Reiki certainly isn’t the only way to healing, but it is a very good way, and it will empower you to perform powerful healings on yourself and others. Reiki heals on a physical, emotional and spiritual level so true and lasting healing can occur. Whatever modality you choose, if you have the slightest interest in healing, I implore you to find a class and give it a try because you’re already a healer, you just don’t know it yet. You just need a little guidance.
