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.

How to Stop Taking On the Pain of People I See as a Therapist?

This post answers questions for The Council from a reader named, Frankie, who says it seems she’s on a shaman’s path. She’s a full-time social worker and therapist who feels like she’s taking on the trauma and pain of the families she works with, and she’s spiritually working through trauma and painful emotions of her own. She feels connected to her spiritual path, but also feels overwhelmed by the pain and trauma of her clients and family.

The Council says it was Frankie’s desire in her current incarnation to deeply feel what her clients, friends, and family go through. When you truly understand, not just by listening but by feeling, you become a great healer that finds the right words because you understand the pain and what these people are going through. Now that you’ve felt what these people are going through it’s not necessary to keep absorbing these people’s pain while you work with them.

Review within yourself all the different feelings that come up and what they’re teaching you. Put out into the universe it’s not necessary to experience this physically any more. But when others come to you and speak of their problems you’ll fully understand because of what you’ve done so far by taking on the physical and emotional feelings of others.

The Council suggests Frankie learn some different physical healing modalities. There’s one called, Reconnection, that would be helpful. Reiki is another good modality to work with. Work with these energies. And when you’re speaking with people you can put this energy around you so you don’t absorb others feelings.

Frankie says she feels anxious and sad sometimes, but she doesn’t always know why. The Council says Frankie chose to experience these feelings to have a greater understanding of them rather than just reading about them in books. By processing her own pain from what she’s personally gone through she’d get a fuller understanding. And with a fuller understanding of herself about what these emotions are like, greater healing energy can come through to work with these other people.

The Council advises Frankie to meditate before you work with others. Ground and put yourself in white light. Ask for help from whatever you believe in, whether it’s angels or guides or God. By doing this you put yourself in a better mindset and then go into this work.

Frankie says she’s had intuitive dreams and insights that have come true. The Council says this will increase because it’s something you’ve done in other lives and bringing this gift into this lifetime will help you expand. Meditation will make you more open to these dreams and intuitions and help you with yourself and others.

Learn different ways to meditate and each one will take you a step further. A group isn’t necessary, but try to make it at the same time each day. Light a candle and make it a ritual so that your body and your spirit knows it’s time to meditate. As you do this every day it will become easier.

Practice Reconnection and Reiki often, even if it’s just on yourself, and you’ll get the feeling of this good energy around you. As you work with other people you won’t pick up so much of what you call “their stuff”. It’s really all of our stuff, but you’re tuning into it now to learn from it.

Frankie asks if she should do a vision quest of some kind. The Council says you can go out into nature and meditate or just look around and that would be the beginning of a vision quest. As you become more able to do this it’s a good idea to ask yourself certain questions and while you sit in nature you’ll begin to receive answers.

The Council says as Frankie becomes more familiar with bringing in good energy she’ll begin to have more clarity. Your Third Eye will open and you’ll see more of what stuff is yours and what isn’t.

How Can I Move Forward as a Healer?

This post answers a question from a reader named, Christine, who says I know I’m here on Earth to be a healer in some capacity, but I’m 52 years old and I’m still having difficulty getting started. I’m a qualified Flower Essence Practitioner, but I lack confidence in my abilities and don’t know how to get past why I’m holding back.

The Council tells Christine she’s been a healer in other lifetimes. They advise her to advance her healing skill by learning many other healing modalities. Sit and listen to what people have to say. Have some sort of counseling, which you don’t need a degree for. Just come from your heart.

Learn healing modalities with your hands using energy. You’ve done this before in other lifetimes. You were involved with natural medicine using plants around the 1400s. Learn about energy work. All of these modalities will come together and you’ll be able to move forward with your healing work. It’s good for you to learn about the chakras. Don’t just stay with the flower essences. Read books and open up to other healing modalities. There’s a book by the author, Barbara Brennan, called Hands of Light that we recommend you read.

Success in the Healing Arts

This post answers questions from a reader named Wendy, who says The Council answered questions for her before and brought her to the wonderful place she’s at today – 6 months pregnant with what she believes is the soul who tried to come through 2 years ago. The Council confirms it’s the same soul and Wendy can expect to have a lot more joy.

Wendy says she now wants to ask The Council about work. She’s worked with an Ayurvedic coach and loved everything she learned. Since then she’s enjoyed looking into many types of healing arts and has a feeling she’s meant to doing healing work, but isn’t sure how. The Council says Wendy has chosen to be a healer in different lifetimes and is experienced in many different ways of healing.

Wendy has recently enrolled in an Ayurvedic practitioner’s course. Part of her is very excited to see where this takes her, and another part tells her she’s insane. She’s afraid to take on something new because she hasn’t gone through with many commitments in the past.

The Council sees this pattern and asks Wendy if she’ll allow herself to fulfill this dream or will she sabotage herself? They say she’s able to successfully complete this course and help others if she’s able to stay focused on creating this. She should make the decision to take the course, and no matter what doubts come up, learn to focus on what’s positive.

Wendy asks The Council what she can do to break old patterns, have confidence, and complete this class, especially with a 7-year old and a new baby on the way?

The Council sees Wendy being successful, but they can’t create it for her. They advise seeing her success, going forward, and acknowledge when she has negative thoughts or feels unable to complete the course. Go slowly because she has her children to look after. Once she completes this course her perspective will change. She’ll be able to succeed and complete whatever plan she creates for herself, and her life will be more positive.

Listen to our entire 6-minute session with The Council (below) to hear all their guidance for Wendy and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.
