As a holistic life coach who has promoted many other healers, I have met a lot of healers who truly have their hearts in the right place but may have fallen into a few 3d traps that limit their potential. Many times I will trade a healing session for a spot on a show or promotion through an article if I feel that their intentions are good and that they mean no harm. Sometimes I am surprised at what comes of our session and I can see the unintentional blocks that hold them back.
I am here to support anyone and everyone that I can with personal and planetary ascension. With that being said, I encourage all healers to take a good review of their methods, outcomes, and business to see if there is anything that can be improved that will expand the number of people that they can help exponentially.
One thing healers can do is to read these examples of traps I have noticed to see if you may have fallen into one of them:
1. Healing For Money
Money should be the Universe’s energetic response and should easily be flowing into your client to you and then from you to support others that magnetically attract it. Ask yourself some basic but important questions.
Why are you a healer? Is it to help humanity and the Earth ascend or is it more because you wanted to replace your 9-5 day job?
If there was no such thing as money, would you still work as a healer or would you do something else? If you find yourself saying that you would be doing something else, find that something else that you would be doing. That is what you will be successful in and you will receive an energetic exchange for that.
Why did you choose the method you are using? Was it the new craze at the time you learned it? Is it successful or has it stopped working for many? If it has stopped working for many, then originally being on the healing path was there for you to find your niche, but your ego may not want to let go of the money maker that was just a stepping stone and support for you to finally step into your true power. You may be being guided to a change the old method or to create a brand new healing method that you channel from your higher self. This new method will be in alignment with the new quantum energies on Earth. It will be one that is so unique and powerful that there is no doubt in your clients mind that they want to exchange energy to receive it. Remember, change is inevitable in order to move forward.
For example, I am a healer and I have healed many people in past lives. I am certified in QHHT, have been initiated in Reiki 1&2, and have taken level 1 and 2 pure bioenergy healing. At the time I took these classes, I had already seen evidence that I could lay my hands on someone and heal them. However, I followed my intuition on taking the classes and doing so was not so that I could become a healer in that method of healing. I met the people I was supposed to meet along my life path and learned a lot more about past lives, entity attachments, pure source energy, how thoughts affect energy, and much more. I have also helped many people in these fields of healing with promotion, which has helped many people down that pipeline receive the healing that they needed. So just because I knew that I needed to take the class didn’t mean that I needed to practice that method of healing. I was confused for a while as to why that method of healing was what I needed to do focus on after investing the energy in taking the classes, but as I look back I can clearly see how I followed my guidance in the correct way. In the end, it is through writing and speaking that I am a healer, along with my intentions for healing others through healing myself.
This does not mean that you should not charge money for your services. There has to be an energy exchange. It means that your heart should be in the right place in order to attract the highest exchange for your services.
2. Hard sell tactics
There is nothing that turns me off more than a hard sell. If I really liked something and was being pressured into buying it, I probably would not cave in to giving my money to it, and I would probably run the other way.
I have seen healers who over promote themselves with MANY of testimonials on their websites. As a client myself, if I see a couple of testimonials on someone’s website, that reassures my fears that they are not a faker but it is not all that I base my final decision on. Instead of overdoing it with testimonials, make sure you are putting it out the universe that you are here and ready to serve. You will magnetically attract to you the people who know that you are a match for them through Universal Law.
3. Thinking that your method is unique and yours alone
Some healers have a big patent or trademark on their method. Some even have themselves convinced that it is the best method out there because they have so much success with their clients. This is a big mistake that will eventually turn on you if you let it get too far out of control, and you may see your whole empire begin to crumble because of it.
In the money example, I mentioned that many healers will be channeling new methods that are unique to them. However, nothing is actually unique as every thought that we have is not really created here in this body. Our thoughts come from our consciousness inhabiting the body, which is connected to other parts of ourselves within what is called an oversoul or monad. That monad is connected to other monads at larger levels that are connected to Source and other Universes. With this being said, there never should be rights, fights over what is “mine”, or patents and trademarks in high consciousness societies.
We are all one on a higher level. Someone may very well be channeling something so very close to what you channeled with one little change that fits them better. Do not make the mistake of going after someone that is helping others through healing based on your ignorance of how the Universe works through us. If someone truly did steal your method and try to make it their own, trust that they will not be successful in the long term and that there has to be an energetic balance to what they are doing. If they profit at first, they will lose it all later on and the truth will be known.
4. Not being patient with your client’s healing response
Everyone is on their unique path at their own pace. Eventually we are all going to merge back with the Source from whence we came. Since there is no such thing as time, the freedom we have to return fast or slow is the free will we have to experience this game. Sometimes healers erroneously think that if their client doesn’t heal or feel better within “x’ number of days, that there is either something wrong with their client’s intentions to heal or even worse that they are losing their healing touch. This doubt all stems from fear and it takes practice to not let that fear creep in to deter you from being a successful healer.
I recently had a very powerful healer help me out with a curse that cause a torn lower back muscle simply from twisting to get out of the car. The very next day after our self empowering session I felt amazingly better. However, I think that the removal of one layer of negative energy held many trap doors that I then had to tackle on my own. These layers involved feeling an energetic attack through stabbing pains in my upper back, feeling the emotions of being lied to be a very close friend, and then going down on my back for a week with sciatica type issues- all within a month. All of the latter things that needed to be cleared were hiding behind the fist layer that was released. I think this is a good thing and many realizations and growth have come out of this, although it didn’t feel like it at the time.
This particular healer was becoming impatient with me. He was telling me that most of his clients leave a testimonial within a few days of the healing, and although he wasn’t forcing it I don’t really like being told what or when. I didn’t leave my testimonial because it didn’t feel right just yet. I think that waiting until I had peeled back all of my layers would have made the testimonial exponential. I was also going to have this healer on my radio show in exchange for the healing experience. Because of the length of my personal healing journey, I didn’t have any shows at all for months! Finally, this healer send me a message that he was “unfriending” me because I was “insincere” in my promises.
This experience is a part of what inspired me to write this article. Don’t make the mistake of impatience or judging another’s pace or interpretation of what is happening in their reality. Especially in these times when we all need to support each other, not cut each other off. I don’t hold any hard feelings for this wonderful healer, and I always try to keep my word. My reply was that I thought it would be better for me to have the show when I was finished with my transformation rather than from my bed while working through back pain. No one is right or wrong in this situation and it’s best to always take the high road in the healing business. It’s better to walk away rather than acting out your impatience or frustrations.
This doesn’t mean that you should not follow up if your client is not responding as others do. It simply means to look for other reasons why they do not respond like most, and if it feels like that you need to honor their own path then let it go.
5. Unnecessary repeated follow ups and overcharging
A really good healer will empower you to learn how to help yourself to a point that you either raise your vibrations above any negative energy or you learn how to change your vibration if you slip back into a lower vibration where dark energy can manifest into the physical. This should not cost an arm and a leg for the initial sessions and ultimately the goal should be to never need to perform a session again on your client. If you are teaching through a series of steps, of course there is a need for follow up sessions. If you are a life coach like I am, one or two follow up sessions are understandable as life changes occur. However, if you find yourself raking in the dough by seeing someone repeatedly over the same issues or they are paying you for something that they should be doing themselves, then it is time to cut the cords with that client.
Why would we do this to a fellow man in need? Because it is the only way that they will finally see what is missing. It will help stop the dependency to give their energy and power away to others. Sometimes a little tough love is what will change things for someone. The main thing is that while the money may be nice, it’s not about the money. It’s about the wake up call and movement with where we place our energy.
There are probably other traps that are out there, but I hope what I have shared helps you with your personal, spiritual, and business growth as a healer and transformational change agent on this planet. It has been difficult for many of us to transition from the old paradigm of jobs to what we are called to do and still make a living from it. We all have to make mistakes on order to see what doesn’t work, so give yourself a break and keep moving forward when this happens.
True healers empower others to heal themselves and do not allow their clients to rely on them constantly for help. True friends do not let other healers continue to take people’s money over and over because it is not healthy for either party. Money is currently the main form of energy exchange on this planet, and even though that will change in the future, we still need it to survive. Reducing your own fears of survival and whether you are a good enough healer will open doors to bring just the right clients to you for equal energetic exchange and healing for both of you. If you are stuck, then something needs to change in your practice.
Two of my friends and former In5d conference speakers, will be joining me in the next few months to bring some higher self experience and ideas to healers around the world through webinars. Author Darcy Hotchkiss and In5d Radio Show host Candace Craw-Goldman will join me in sharing our knowledge in an effort to help other move to their highest potential as healers and wayshowers. We all three know the satisfaction and joy that comes from doing what you came here to do, and we are in service to helping others find out what that is and be successful at it.
