There are many who have healing gifts and may not even be aware of it. They go through their neatly laid out routines day after day, going through the motions, from the crack of the morning's light until they all fall into a sunset of well deserved rest. It can be monotonous, maddening and merry making at the same time. On the surface, this routine of life may feel quite normal because it's what we as a society have been taught to do, however, something beneath the surface may be telling you there's something missing, and that something may be the forgotten you.
Life is like a conveyor belt of milestone after milestone, checking off the boxes from infancy to adolescence. After all the boxes have been checked, we find ourselves suddenly having to make some very big choices based on very little experience with life. We somehow have to figure out what we think we'd like to do as a profession, when we barely even know where we fit in, let alone who we are. The pressure to fit in and find our place in a hurry can be intimidating to say the least. If one doesn't know what they want to do by the time they are in their senior year of high school, clearly there must be something wrong. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with the young individual facing indecision. On the other hand, we may what to consider that something is quite backwards about our continually demanding society.
As a professional healer, I have encountered so many individuals who have come to me later on in life, feeling displaced in a river of tears. Let me be perfectly clear, these individuals are both men and women. They've been stuck in a job for 20 plus years and they have no idea who they are. They have accidently lost themselves in the demands of what they thought they were supposed to be doing in life, and I, as an intuitive spiritual counselor am there to support them through a period of personal disorientation. I support them in making sense of the internal nudges they are feeling to leave their jobs or leave other aspects of their lives completely behind. Surprisingly, many feel called to move into a profession that involves caring for others: nursing, counseling, teaching, healing, music therapy, art, and other areas that involve awakening the heart.
Perhaps you are struggling with the same questions. Perhaps you are feeling displaced within your own life. It is for this reason I felt impressed to offer a quiz that can point you in a direction that may resonate more deeply with your life. Are you a healer? Take this quiz. If you can answer yes to 18 or more of these, you may be a healer.
