May I address something? This “something” has been poking at me for a little while so I just need to get it out.
Something that I’ve been hearing come up more frequently with my students?
Its this whole thing about some people feeling like this:
“OK, I’ve taken a class, completed a certification, received a certificate…I may even have several different types of healing modality certifications under my sparkly belt…but I’m still not ready nor prepared to heal others. Who am I to heal others?“
and–by the way, I don’t feel certification is necessary at all, yeah even though I am the founder of an Academy that certifies peeps! I go over my views on that in this interview I gave a while back w/ a few other cool chicas.
Some people are born healers and may know it & they’ve got the confidence that goes along with it and…more power to you. I love that.
Some people feel like they can they can teach themselves & learn it all on their own & they become extraordinary healers!
What I’m saying is, I don’t feel certification is a necessity, nor that it’s for everyone-we’ve talked a little bit about that before.
So why bother with certifications & academies & the whole she-bang? That’s b/c a lot of us- and this is just human nature, Lima Bean- a lot of us like to have a foundation, a lot of us like to have steps to follow. We like some kind of–not that I deliver formulas at all, but some kind of a format.
And hey, I love it too! That’s why I love to teach & I love to build curricula & I just freakin’ love this sort of thing. I’ve been a teacher my whole life.
So this whole thing about:
‘Okay, I’ve got all these certifications, I still don’t feel like I’m ready to be a healer. I still don’t feel like I’ve mastered it. I still don’t feel like I’m ready. I still feel like there’s so much more to learn before I should be out there healing other people. I still feel like I have so much to heal within myself before I can go out there and heal others.’
That is just plain bullshiz! Yeah, I am calling bullshiz on that. Get over it. Get over it.
That’s what I say to that because, hey, guess what?
None of us are perfect.
Even the highest ascended masters & Source Energy itself have some imperfections, and if we’re going to wait around for all of us to become ascended masters, to get people out there healing & helping other people, then…Frick!…none of us are going to benefit from any of it.
And by the way, I don’t think being a healer-my students know this; they know this well– being a healer is not a one way street.
It’s most certainly a two way street.
So, when we call ourselves ‘healer’, it’s really a misnomer. We just use that to give a label because, as humans, we also like to have labels so we can compartmentalize things & know what everyone is talking about. So that’s a good idea. But you are a healer as well as the ‘healee’-yeah, that’s a weird word-but when we are healing others we are also receiving healing in return.
It’s a 2 way conduit to source energy. We’re giving & we are receiving; and sure as heck we need it. We need that healing just as much as everybody else does. I know I do!
So please, please get over this notion, Sweet Pea. Do not wait until you feel that you are perfectly ready–
- all your chakras are balanced
- you are perfectly healed
- you do everything wonderfully well
- you don’t do anything wrong
- you’re in heart center 100% of the time
- and– oh, forget it!!
So please, get out there, share your gifts, and heal other people…and be healed. 🙂
