I recently had someone reach out to me feeling overwhelmed about the world of healing. She said that she had purchased some crystals and books on chakras, but felt out of her league. I totally identified because I had definitely been there when I started healing. There are so many facets of spirituality and healing, so many schools of thought, and seemingly so much to learn, that it can feel daunting. What if I do it wrong? What if I’m not good at healing? Other people seemed to know so much more than I, and I often felt confused about what was up and what was down in the beginning.
It took me many turns, many hiccups and some confusion to return to the truth of my experience with God. When my experience first happened, I spent time with different healers trying different practices and trying to understand what the heck had happened to me. I still felt like I needed outside validation to understand it. All of these people taught me a lot, but it took a fair amount time to turn back towards myself and realize that I had everything I needed to learn on the inside.
Eventually I’ve learned that my heart is just as sacred as anyone else’s, and my inner light comes from God just like the rest of us. Love lies at the center of who we are. Uncovering that love and connecting to it as often as possible is truly the purpose of healing. Yes, tools can be useful, but they are only tools – they can never replace you or your heart, or your connection to God and God’s love. So go ahead and use the tools as a gateway to remembering the truth of who you are, but don’t be intimidated by them.
I wish you a beautiful day filled with love, and a Happy Halloween!
