Why Isn’t My Healing Practice Moving Forward?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Healer.

Healer: I know I’ve come into this lifetime as a healer, and I’ve been a healer many lifetimes before. I’ve felt this pull to do healing work for so many years. I’ve formally studied a few healing modalities, specifically Kinesiology, Flower Essences, Reiki, and Craniosacral Therapy. I’m now trying to get my healing business going, but I’m getting very few clients, less than one a month. The clients I’ve seen have seemed very happy with their session, yet they don’t return. Why is that?

Council: In this particular reality you wanted to learn about healing, but you wanted to teach healing, to come up with an idea of how to combine all of these practices and make one that works the best for you and then teach other people about it.

When these people come to see you, we would say the energy you put out there is important. And so it’s important for you to see your clients as being well, to tell them you see them well, and then to begin the healing work on them. Give them ideas on how to move forward and heal themselves. And that’s what you really wanted to do, to have them leave you with practices they can do and then come back and tell you about it.

It would be good for you to give some free sessions every now and then so people get to know you. But in those free sessions still be able to offer something that would help them, that they can do on their own. People more and more are learning now that they want to heal themselves. So that would be your successful part of it, to teach others how to help themselves, and they will return to you. But it was the teaching part that you were more interested in at this time.

And so eventually, if they have places you can go and give a class, make up your own way to heal, tell people what to look for and give them simple steps to do, people will begin to hear about you and then you’ll have more and more clients.

Healer: Can you please help me to understand why my healing practice isn’t moving forward?

Council: Because it’s not just the healing, it’s also the teaching. And when you concentrate with the intention of finding a way of putting everything you’ve learned together, mix it up and find simple little steps, even if it’s three or four steps you can tell each person something they can do to feel better, that would be the purpose you wanted this particular lifetime.

So you’ll have both. You’ll have clients that come for healings, and you’ll have people that come to learn what you have to offer.

Bob: Are you suggesting that the ones that are learning what you have to offer, be it in classes or one to one…

Council: Both.

Healer: Is this my true path?

Council: Yes it is.

Healer: Am I blocking it in some way, or perhaps I’m just not good at what I do?

Council: You are very good at what you do. But you want the confidence to come, the joy to come, when you put out with love how you feel about people, and the intention of not only wanting to help them heal, but the intention was to teach them how to heal themselves. That is your purpose.
