When I first started doing energetic healing work I was worried that if I was not in perfect emotional, physical and energetic balance then I would not be able to do healing work that would have a positive effect for my clients.
I also remember thinking that if I, as the healer, needed a healing then all the energy would go to me, not the client.
I have been doing energetic healing for over ten years, and it’s just impossible for me to wake up every morning in perfect balance. Even though I am very committed to being a healer and taking good care of myself, I have a life, relationship issues, sick pets, and cycles of intense personal growth like everyone else.
How do I know if I am grounded and balanced enough to do a healing?
This is how: I ask myself, “Am I open, or closed, to the energy?”
Bam. My body gives me instant feedback. Yes or no, open or closed, just like that.
The most important thing for me is to show up in my healing sessions for my clients with an open mind and heart. Even if I was up all night taking care of my sick cat, if my body says yes, then I am ready to do a healing. I gave some of the most amazing healings I can remember when my 17-year-old cat was in kitty hospice. Even though I was grieving her transition, I was open to the energy for my clients. Maybe even more so.
After every healing, I still always check in with myself to make sure I feel better after the healing than before the healing. And I also check in with the client to make sure they received what they came for.
The truth is, I get a healing from every session I give. I am in the energy and a part of it. I am so lucky to be doing this work. There is so much energy available every moment. I have found the universe is abundant and supportive beyond our wildest dreams. All we have to do is connect and be open to it.
