Q - My concern is I’m taking on others’ injuries. How can I protect myself ? Last October, a psychic said that I would become a healer. I didn’t take this seriously and have never thought of being one … Could this be part of the “training” or journey to being a healer. What if I don’t want to take this path, what can I do?
A - Protecting yourself is not a good idea. It leads down the path of no end. This is a danger for healers. This pattern of thinking is really the problem. It is Best is to focus on working on energy of person that is within themselves. Do not use the model that energy comes and goes from people. That will always deplete you. I believe I have addressed this on yogaforums.com site the Spirits path column. you can look up energy or energy bodywork or energy vampires for some comments to go further. A healer is first of all focused on their spiritual development foremost. If that is a path to help others it will naturally arise and methods are not really needed to train in. They provide a conceptual format but they are really irrelevant to one who is a true healer. Being a health or wellness counselor is fine too. True healers are given methods that others try to copy. Hence many names are there for these methods. If you don’t want to take this path all you have to do is to do more spiritual practice and learn to ground your energy work within your own energy pranic field.
