“A true healer does not heal you; she simply reflects back to you your innate capacity to heal. She is a reflector, or a loving transparency. A true teacher does not teach you; she does not see you as inherently separate from her, or less than her. She simply reflects back your own inner knowing, and reminds you of the vastness of your being. She is a mirror, a signpost.And love is the space in which all of this is possible; love heals, and we learn best in a loving field, no threat of failure, no punishment.” — Jeff Foster from Awakening Together
In addition to this great quote from Jeff, my guidance to you, in choosing a “Healer,” whether it be me or an other is to trust your inner knowing and ask yourself a few questions:
Does this person resonate with me? In other words, do you like their voice and the way you feel in your exchange with them?
Does your heart open? Does your gut relax?
Do you feel safe with them and trust the space they are holding for you?
Are they truly a good listener or does it feel like they’re just in a rush to tell you something about them, when in fact this time is about you?
Do they feel like they have your highest well-being in their sites?
Do you like the questions they ask you?
These are simple but potent guidelines I use when I’m making a choice about whom to share my deep soul and heart with, and whose guidance I trust will actually help me to rise above my current conundrum; to see my life from a new perspective at the very least or monumentally to help shift my life’s trajectory in a positive direction.
In your heart and soul you will know. The mind alone is usually not a reliable barometer but can certainly help in terms of the practical things, like do their rates and payment offerings work well for me? What sort of credibility or background do they have?
I always tune into my Heart, my Mind, my Body and my Soul – when I make decision and consider “all of me” together, I get a clear answer.
Granted, we’re not meant to “work” with just anyone. I know this to be true for myself. I do know that I’m an extraordinary listener and I truly care. I also know that I have gifts in helping others and I like the feeling of supporting others to shine their light in the world!
