What Does "Healer" and "Healing" Entail?

Firstly... what is a "healer"?

Definition :-

∞ a person who claims to be able to cure a disease or injury using special powers.

∞ a person or thing that mends or repairs something.

∞ something that alleviates a person's distress or anguish.

and what is considered to be "healing"?

Definition :-

∞ to make free from injury or disease : to make sound

∞ to make well again : to restore to health

∞ to cause (an undesirable condition) to be overcome : mend the troubles …

∞ : to patch up or correct

∞ : to restore to original purity or integrity

In essence, when an individual is out of balance - whether it is physical, mental, emotional or spiritual - they will generally go in search for something that it going to address or reverse the discomfort or pain of the particular issue and in truth there are countless methods when seeking wellness or relief.

These methods can encompass the skills of 'conventional' approaches or medicine as well as incorporating alternative/complementary medicine such as acupuncture, chiropractic, and naturopathy; or what I practice - "Bowen Therapy/Reiki/Australian Bush Essences as well as changing damaging and habitual belief systems.

"The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician.

Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind."~ Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus

What I have always focused upon is to actually address the cause of the discomfort or dis-ease naturally and whol-istically rather than just attending to the symptom that is being experienced, which can be the case of some techniques.

And when the body is displaying any particular distress, illness or injury, it is generally to get the individual's attention that there is something going on that is contrary to the overall well being of the being - a message so to speak!

When it comes to the description of healing or healer I must admit that it has been a struggle to actually give myself that title! In fact, for a long time I would never ever call myself a healer for the pure reason that it prompted an ego based category for me in particular. 🤔

I believed for a time that this heading was placing myself above others, which is NOT something that I am about.

I always work WITH and for others in providing services and skills that are focused upon living a much better and happier, healthier lifestyle.

And it is for this reason that our Maggies Farm Sanctuary was created - for the sanctity of the animals that come to us and for those individuals who are open to becoming much better beings!

HOWEVER, with the personal growth originated and generated through the current multitude of heightened energetic changes both within and without, I am much more expressive in stating that YES I am definitely a healer - of myself and the initiator of that catalyst within others.

I DO NOT heal you..... but I do absolutely initiate YOU HEALING YOU in whatever capacity that is required, and for that I am blessed to have the skills, the education, the proficiency as well as the dedication to do this.

There is no ego with this, just a wonderful desire to assist others whether it is human, fauna or flora, to travel that amazing journey that is called LIFE! 💖

When you are looking for whatever 'healing' or recovery from an experience that is contrary to a life that is full, enjoyable and gratifying, ensure that the encounter is one that is FOR YOU and that encourages you to become the very best that you can be at any given time!
