One of the biggest lessons I've learned as a newly awakened Healer is that I don't actually HAVE to fix, save or heal anyone who crosses my path in life (nor do I technically have the ability to.)
Some people seem to believe a Healer HAS to help them whenever they need help because "it is a Healers life purpose to help others.”
And if a Healer chooses not to help for any reason, some people may project their anger onto them by calling them “selfish” or “arrogant.” Like they are “misrepresenting” themselves as a Healer.
Some people may also believe a Healer wants nothing more in life than to help others, like that's the only way they are going to feel truly happy and fulfilled. And in order to be a "True Healer" they "should" always put the needs of the wounded before their own.
Well I’m here to set the record straight.
These are limiting beliefs that are rooted in the lack matrix and are not the absolute truth.
Since we all have free will, no one HAS to do anything they don't want to do, don't have the time to do, or simply don't have the energy to do.
A Healer is also a human being with their own free will (and their own life challenges) which means they have EVERY RIGHT to set boundaries with others, especially the types who only come to them to complain, play victim and try to GET as much as they can from them and without exchanging something of equal value.
These are called "energy vampires" and they can bring a Healer down and suck the energy right out of them if a Healer DOESN'T protect themselves.
An empowered Healer will read the energy and know what kind of vibration to bring to someone to help them further evolve... and sometimes that vibration comes in the form of a boundary. The other person may not like this method but, guess what, it's still helping them evolve because it's giving them the perfect opportunity to turn inwards and check themselves.
A Healer's mission is to not only empower others to think for themselves and learn how to trust their intuition, but to also learn how to heal themselves. Inner work is what is needed to heal and a Healer can’t do 100% of this work for someone else. A person has to do most of it for themselves.
Let's all be the hero of our own lives and save ourselves.
If you want a Healer to help you heal faster, consider letting go of the entitlement aspect of this dynamic and give something of equal value back to help them out.
Your end goal is to learn how to source your own energy, not drain someone else's time and energy! Doing so is only going to bring you more karmic lessons, and karma can be a real f’ckin’ bitch.
