I was born a healer. As a child I knew that I had the duty to help and assist others even though I was born with a disability. I was born partially blind and I had to use my other senses to live well and access the world. From my childhood I knew was different from others. I had vivid dreams. I had healing hands. I also felt a strange pull from nature, animals, children and sick and disabled people.
But fully accepting and knowing that I was a healer was a different story. For many people who are born with healing gifts, they see signs of their call to heal. On the other hand, some of them may feel confused by life and signs that they do not act upon their gifts. Embracing that you are a healer will also help you heal your mind, body and soul.
Are You a Healer?
In the old times, healers are called shamans or witch doctors or reiki masters. These are people who are given special gifts to heal not just the body but also the mind and the spirit. They help those who have afflictions by using spiritual energies as well as gifts from Nature such as herbs, roots, insects and others. Shamans often project a different vibe than the other members of the tribe. They live in the outskirts of the village in houses protected by charms and talismans.
