I once thought my mom could heal me. I then thought a Doctor could heal me. Now, I think a therapist might be able to heal me. And while all these entities might have been able to “heal” me at different stages in my life, the truth of the matter is only one person can truly heal me.
I went to see a spiritual healer on Friday. I was just a bit reluctant because I had never met this person before. Could it be possible that they could heal me of all my pains and troubles? I thought long and hard before realizing that I haven’t felt pain in an extremely long time. So what would this healer even do for me? Were they going to just make me perfect once and for all?
I walked in the door and felt an extreme feeling of comfort. It was as though I had met this healer person before. They handed me a cup of tea and told me to stay for a while. I looked into their eyes and just knew I would learn a lot during this meeting.
I still wasn’t convinced of anything until this healer explained what they did. “I am only here to help you on this journey we call life. I do not provide miracles but I will tell you what I do provide. I provide insight into yourself in order for you to become the very best version of yourself. Everything we do here is 100% you not me,” they explained.
The healer opened me up like a book. Remember when I said I hadn’t felt any pain in a while? Well, I began feeling the pain from wounds revisited once I sat down with the healer. They dug deep down into my heart and found a pain and sadness I had even forgot existed.
Energies vibrated, words were spoken, and all of a sudden I saw myself clearer than I ever had before. I saw myself for the strong human being I had become over the years. The healer told me I was one of the few people who truly loved myself. They said I struggled to feel love and appreciation from others but that I didn’t struggle with finding all of that within myself. I smiled at her and realized the only person that could ever truly heal me was myself.
