I believe we are all inherently healers whether we realize it or not. Ofcourse there are those of us who enter into this world with amazing natural healing abilities that are recognized right away. Oftentimes there are genetic factors involved. Perhaps one is born into a family with superior healing abilities, psychic abilities and so forth. The parents of these particular healers may even help their young ones hone their healing craft, allowing their children to understand the healing abilities they possess early in life. Others may not be aware of their natural healing abilities for many years until the right situation comes along that allows them to understand the talents they possess. Some may have an interest in healing or an inclination to be around healers, crystals and the spiritual element, but never actually do any healing, at least not any healing that they are consciously aware of.
Some believe that to be a spiritual healer one must take a class, or a series of classes, or pass a certain amount of strenuous tests, otherwise labeling oneself a spiritual healer would appear to be blasphemous. Others will never take one single class or test in their lifetime and achieve extraordinary healing results. Some spiritual healers will provide healing energy everywhere they go without ever knowing or understanding the amazing gift that they possess. Just their presence alone, perhaps the words they speak and the kindness and compassion they exude will make a significant positive difference in others' lives.
Some will discover that they are spiritual healers only after going through years of struggle and agony on this physical plane. Only after healing themselves will they realize the immense abilities they possess, at which point they will be driven to help others. Sometimes it takes great pain and sorrow for the healing abilities to even present themselves. Yet they were always there just waiting to be tapped into.
In my opinion, to be a great spiritual healer, one doesn't necessarily need to take a class, or pass some fantastical test, or fast for days, or meditate for a million hours.... or even be born into a family of healers. I think what it all boils down to is intention. If you intend to be a spiritual healer, to help people, animals, plants, the planet...then that healing energy will find it's way to you! Everything is thoughts and energy. Being a spiritual healer is not a difficult feat. If it is something that you want to be, something that resonates within you, then you already are a spiritual healer in the making! And as I've stated, many people are already practicing spiritual healing unknowingly.
Spiritual healing comes in so many forms... There is no one perfect way to perform a healing. Spiritual healing can be through the written word, spoken word, singing, music, paintings, sculpture, dance, energy healing, so on and so forth. Everyone has a talent. Everyone comes to this world with something to give. If you take your talent and gear it towards spiritual healing, with the intention to help people, animals, plants, the planet and so forth... well guess? Voila...you become a spiritual healer! Everything after that,... classes, tests, certifications, fasting, meditation, crystals, rituals, magic, tarot, yoga...it's all just extra credit! If you are meant to take a class, believe me, the class will present itself in due time. Follow your intuition. Follow the signs. There is no perfect way to be a spiritual healer. Just intend to be the best healer you can be...and you will be it! Peace and Blessings!
