"This.This is an important reminder to ALL of us, as all humans have the capacity to heal others. It's our purpose in this life. Some heal through their words, their art... some through their careers... others through their friendship, advice, and an ability to intuitively recognize the medicine that a fellow aching soul needs.
Now, I have a feeling that those of you who have stumbled upon my Instagram and decided to stay, (love you btw) may have recognized your own healing gifts early in life. Maybe you've been painfully sensitive to the suffering of others since before you can remember, and you don't feel like yourself when you're not easing that burden in some shape or form. Perhaps your passion stems from your pain, and it wasn't until you personally experienced a tragedy or illness that your heart perked up and said "THIS is what I came to do." Whatever it is, I know that we as a group feel things differently. We feel them hard, we search for answers, we do the work ourselves & we yearn to share.
The same way that no one was able to do that work FOR YOU... you must remember that you cannot do the work for others. I know that hurts. I know sometimes we have to watch the people we love suffer most - not because we CAN'T give them help, but because they don't want the help we have to give. It feels like the key is in our hands, but something is stopping us from reaching their grasp.
The phrase 'road less traveled' was coined for a reason... and as a healer, that's a tough pill to swallow. Someone can tell you with their lips that they're ready for the walk- but it means nothing without their will to put one foot in front of the other. This is not your fault. Sometimes an individual does not want or is not ready to heal, and that's okay. Sometimes the best you can do is make the most of yourself, so that you may lead by example. And sometimes you have to heal the part of yourself that yearns to 'fix them.' Their path is not your burden - it is their gift and only they alone must learn the lessons that come with it." #healer #cantforceanything #holistichealth #holistic #takecareofyourself #healing #healthylifestyle #stopbeingstupid
