Becoming a Better Healer, Shine Bright!

I am honoured to have attuned 40 reiki channels over the last 3 years, many of whom are working professionally as practitioners, so I thought I’d do a blog today on becoming a better lightworker.  This is relevant to anyone, even if you are not a healer or reiki channel.  Here are 4 points to take into consideration:-

  1. Stay Open and Vulnerable

Being honest and open allows us to connect with people.  None of us are perfect!  Unfortunately being a healer hasn’t made me clear of all karma, and once one lesson is learnt, I brace myself for the up-coming next one! 

Rather than possessing our truth, we should let it possess us. When we are too closed-off and rigid, our truth is going to elude us forever. To discover our truth, we need to become more vulnerable. This takes courage, but it’s the courage that transforms us from a victim to a warrior.  Being humble doesn’t mean to think less of yourself, it actually means to think of yourself less.

  1. Stay Strange and Weird!

It’s OK to be odd. Here’s why.

The ego says that differences are flaws that should be hidden.  But what makes you weird is actually your super-power.  Be strange and uncanny. Use humour to laugh at your misfortunes and your quirks to make you unique. In a world where conformity is the easiest option, authenticity is in high demand!  Deep down everyone desires this, but they don’t like to be the first one.  Be weird and give everyone permission to do the same.    Rules can be broken to make way for better ones. The world needs more spiritual gangsters to shine their perfectly imperfect lights. And besides, it’s good for your health not to compare yourself to others.

  1. Get in Touch with Your Shadow

Everything that irritates us about others leads us to an understanding of ourselves.
The shadow is the “dark side” of our personality because it consists of primitive, negative human emotions and impulses like anger, jealousy, greed, selfishness, temptation and power.  It’s not a popular topic!  Who wants to think about their own nastiness, right?

All we deny in ourselves—whatever we think of as inferior, evil, or unacceptable—become part of the shadow and these parts of our personality are repressed.  When we deny these feelings, we see them in others.  Self awareness, meditation and being courageously honest are good ways of embracing our shadow and understanding how it keeps us whole. Don’t deny your shadow, reconcile with it. 

  1. Unleash Your Creativity 

Allow your imagination to flow. It is going to set us free. Creative pursuits are so liberating for our soul.  Every one of us is an ordinary human that has experienced the extraordinary.
Creative processes actualize that extraordinary.
