We often think of “healers” as being different from the rest of us. But we are all healers. We are learning that to heal means to Love and to be Loved. Please note that loving and being loved means accepting yourself and others exactly where they are.
Healing happens in the mind.
When someone suffers from physical ailments, we can help them find comfort through a connection with love. The healing takes place in the presence of love. Ailing bodies don’t keep us sick, our attitudes and understanding does. Each moment is our opportunity to heal, for ourselves and others.
I used to volunteer for hospice supporting people who were actively dying. I also supported my mom in the last week of her life. This may sound extreme, but again and again, I saw that death was not separate from healing. I remember one woman in hospice who refused to die. Month after month, the doctors could not understand how Evelyn could possibly still be alive, considering how little food, water (no IV’s), she took in. Finally, her estranged daughter from out of state showed up to make peace with her mom. Evelyn died 15 minutes after her daughter showed up to enveloped her mom in Love. It may sound odd, but that was the healing.
Physical healing can also take place when we Love what is, and surrender fear and the need to control what is happening to us. This can be really hard to do —until it is not. That is why we refer to life as a practice. Practicing living open heartedly, asking for the lesson in what is before us and accepting it all as perfection, even if we don’t understand it.
Here is a powerful quote someone shared with me:
You were born a healer.
You are here to love and to be loved.
We are here to remind each other along the way.
Thanks for your commitment to shift your consciousness. Doing this work means being a Lover of Truth. Again:
You are a healer.
You are here to Love and to be Loved.
