What a healer means to me is someone that is committed to growth… a person I refer to as a growth seeking being. Someone that is interested in shining some light on the darker places in their lives. Turning their traumas, dramas, uncomfortable and challenging life experiences into rocket fuel.  They often self-reflect, immerse themselves in different healing containers, they are willing to do the hard work. In many instances, they just can’t help themselves.  It is a part of who they are.
I am one of those people. At times, when the going gets tough, I sigh and say “I just want to coast for a while.”  A therapist I worked with several decades ago said to me “Melanie, you need to take coasting out of your vocabulary.  It’s just who you are. There is no “off switch” to seeking”.
Leonard Cohen said it best, “There is a crack in everything, that is how the light gets in.”
I believe that “healers” are willing to let the light in.  They have courage to shine the light on their shadow, the so-called dark places, so that their path can be illuminated. We’ve heard this many times but it still holds true, “you have to feel it to heal it.”
Healers use this energy to propel them forward in life and to gain more compassion and understanding for other human beings.  In living from this place of tending to their inner world, their outer world and circumstances change.  Often you can change everything around you by doing the “inner work.”
In my Intuitive Energy Healing practice, I “see” the healer in people ALL the time.  I can also “feel” the healer in someone upon our first meeting.
They are teachers, massage therapists, coaches, psychotherapists, lawyers, waiters and waitresses, jewelry designers, nurses, doctors, car mechanics, corporate leaders, writers, painters, landscapers, bagel shop owners, estheticians, barista’s, financial planners, dog groomers, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, etc. 
They are YOU!
Just as I believe we all have the ability to tap into our intuition, the same goes with the healer within each of us. 
When I first ask people how they feel about being a healer, they often get quiet and feel a little shy.

I have mentored quite a few of my clients that have ventured out on their own and crossed the bridge from the corporate world to creating their own healing practice. They were able to uncover what had been standing in their way, they got curious and opened up to the idea that perhaps they had a bigger calling.
And others were elated with the feeling of openness in their bodies and minds and enjoyed “being a healer”  by modeling kindness and having compassion to others around them.
Now is the time to access the healer within. To shine some light into the cracks of our lives.
By doing so, we not only heal ourselves, but the collective as well.
What does it mean to you to be a healer?  I’d love to know!💓
Oceans of love,
Today is such an auspicious day!  2-22-22!  I didn’t think about the synchronicity of this day until I started writing my newsletter.  My parents eloped as teenagers with me in utero, 62 years ago today.  One of my most powerful healing journeys has been shining light on my fear of being seen.  I will tell this story another time.  Thank you Mom and Dad for following your hearts and giving birth to me!
