Zodianz and Kelly Lightworker Answers: August 2017
For this question, I'm having my soul sister and mentor Kelly Lightworker help me.
There was a time when my daughter and I was in a park feeding pigeons. A guys at his 40's I guess... approached us and we talked for a while. He told me that I am a healer because he saw this smoke (flame) from my hands though my hands felt normal that day... He said it's up to me to answer that calling. He said he could help me if I liked to. He also preached God's words to me that day. And I was prayed over by him. Honestly I wasn't so sure if I'll believe him because who am I to possess such gift? Zodians how would I and the other's like me know that they do possess a special gift and what kind of gift it might Be? I am hoping you could help me because if what that guy (I called him Kuya Ting) told me was real then I'll try to consider the things that I could do to help others with that gift. It will be an honor.
First, thank you for having such a big heart and for wanting to help other people. In the spiritual realm, intention is the first step to everything. Trust that your desire to be of service has not gone unnoticed, and that the Universe can and will open doors for you to help others if that is what you truly desire.
There’s a Spiritual Law that goes, “As within, so without.” When you have certain gifts or talents, there are bound to be signs.
Here are some of the most common and significant signs that indicate the presence of energy healing gifts. (Please note that some of these signs can overlap with the signs of other energetic and/or psychic gifts.)
- You have a strong sense of empathy. You feel so strongly that emotions (especially negative ones) can be experienced as physical pain – both your emotions and others’
- You have a strong desire to help others
- People are drawn to you when they need help, even if they don’t know you well
- Children and animals are drawn to you, even if they don’t know you
- When you enter a room, you can tell from the vibes if there has been an argument – even when there are no external signs
- You’re the go-to person in your circle when someone needs counsel, comfort, and/or a listening ear
- Interacting with a lot of people in a social environment (e.g. at a party or a networking event) drains you
- Your hands sometimes feel warm and tingly, and you have no medical issue that could explain this sensation (e.g. nerve damage)
- You’ve been told you have a calming touch: when you touch someone who’s been feeling stressed, they seem to relax and feel better
- You often experience physical aches: usually headaches, pain in the shoulders + back and/or in the digestive system, especially after you’ve helped someone
- You have a family history of healers: you have relatives who have either been professionals in a healing field, or who display(ed) the signs on this list
If you say “Yes” to about 5 or more of these signs, there’s a chance you have some degree of healing gifts, and that’s great! I just have one question for you though:
Must you have “gifts” in order to help other people?
You say that you’ll “try to consider the things that [you] could do to help others with that gift”. You call it “an honour”. I love how you have such a deep love for others and a deep respect for Spiritual abilities, but I think you’re missing the point here:
YOU ARE THE GIFT.
If you truly desire to help others, you don’t actually need “gifts”. You, in all your flawed beauty, your strengths and weaknesses, your achievements and struggles; you at your best and at your worst; you, in this lifetime, in past lifetimes and in lifetimes to come – you are precious beyond any gem, and what you have to offer the Universe is invaluable.
What the Universe needs right now, more than another energy healer or psychic, is pure and unconditional love. The love that is wise and strong and kickass enough to take action and make a difference. The love that fights injustice, that feeds the poor, that comforts the broken, that reaches out to the outcast.
So you want to be a healer? You have chosen something wonderful. Your first and only mission is to heal with love; your first and most important client, yourself.
Here are some steps you can take, moving forward:
Start with yourself.
Heard of the saying, “Physician, heal thyself”? It’s time to change your perspective, and address that part of yourself that seems to think you’re not good enough to help others if you don’t have “gifts”.
When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror and told yourself, “I love and accept myself; I deserve love and happiness”? First, heal your self-perspective; that puts you in a much better standing to help others.
Find a need and meet it.
Healing takes many forms. Sometimes the weakest and most wounded people are standing right before us. Maybe a family member or friend could do with a phone call or a visit. Elsewhere, you could offer your time and services at a local shelter or charity organisation.
Even if you feel that there’s nothing much you can do about a certain situation, you can pray. Prayer offered to the Divine for the greatest and highest good, when offered with a pure heart, is THE most powerful form of energy healing I know. More people need to do this! It’s so simple yet so effective – if you’re not sure whom to address your prayers to, just address them to God/Goddess, and all that is good, pure and holy. Trust that the Divine hears every prayer.
For your own journey, feel free to pray and ask the Divine (and your guardian angel) to send you the right people to help you as you learn and grow. This ties in with my next point:
Research + explore.
Google is your friend! The internet is a massive store of information and knowledge. The more you read and research, the more you’ll be exposed to a wide range of healing modalities, beliefs, and practices. You’ll find yourself clicking with some websites and writers more than others – that’s perfectly fine and natural.
Part of the journey may involve you reaching out to other people and communities to learn more about healing. Go ahead and sign up for Facebook group pages, workshops, wherever you feel you might learn something useful. While you’re exploring, stay safe – which brings me to my final point.
If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. If someone doesn’t feel like they can be trusted, don’t rush into anything. Keep your mind and heart open, but never switch off your common sense or your bullshit radar.
Remember – you have the right to welcome the right energies, teachings and people into your life. You also have the responsibility to keep out what doesn’t serve your best interests.
All best in your journey!
Love and light,
