The Energy Healing Site is a unique, free resource. It takes me (Nancy) many hours each week to sustain and expand it. If it is valuable to you, please consider supporting it with a donation.
People sometimes ask me, "Am I a healer? How do I know?"
But I think differently, so for me the answer to their question is simple:
"You don't have to wait for a special sign from above that you're a healer. You are a healer. Everyone is. Everyone has the ability to heal others (or more specifically, to support others in their own self-healing.)
To me, the ability to help others heal is just part of being human. To ask "Am I a healer" is like asking, "Am I human?"
But beyond that, there are two important points to consider.
First, there are many ways to be "a healer," and you can do "the work" from any place in life. You can be a healer (or not!) as a medical doctor, a nurse, or any of the other conventional healing roles. You can be a healer in a less traditional way, such as being an energy healer.
But teachers, politicians, photographers, counselors, store clerks, moms, dads, administrators, roofers, childcare workers, and anyone else in the whole wide world can be powerful healers as well. You don't have to go to school or hang out a shingle. You can do this work from where you already are.
The second point is that energy healing is more a path than a skill set or ability. Anyone can walk at least a little ways down that path, assuming their intentions are good. But to go very far on the path, you must be intentionally evolving, continually working to raise the calibration of your energy.
Because it's not HAVING the gift of healing that's special. It's DEVELOPING it that's special. That happens naturally if you truly want it to be your path—but it has to happen.
So in a way I suppose "being a healer" is mostly about hearing a "calling" and answering it. If you're wondering about whether you're a healer, you've already heard the call. What you do with it is up to you.
