11 Signs You Are A Healer…

Do your ever find yourself thinking, “I feel like I want to be a healer, but how can I tell if I have the gift of being a healer?” Then wondering, “Shouldn’t I pursue this more and if I am a healer? What am I supposed to do with this gift? How will I know?”

What is a healer exactly?
A healer is someone who has a natural ability to raise another person’s vibration.

Simple as that. A healer has an ability, or natural ability, to raise another person’s vibration when they come into contact with them. Whether knowingly or unknowingly, when a person leaves your presence and you feel better than before they arrived…that’s a healer.

Sign #1 – You are drawn to healing. 
You’re just simply drawn to it. You’re drawn to the entire aspect of it in general. You might be drawn towards energy work, Reiki, alternative medicine, or any of the “traditional” healing jobs I mentioned.
When people say, I feel like I meant to be a healer, but I don’t know if I have the ability or the skill, how do I know? Well, that’s your number one sign right there. You are drawn to it.

Sign #2 – You have an urge to develop your abilities and/or psychic senses.

You feel drawn into the metaphysical community, and you have the urge to develop your metaphysical or spiritual abilities. Such as psychic abilities or spirit communication abilities, energy work abilities, or empathic abilities. You’re feeling the urge to develop your spiritual body and the abilities that come with it.

Sign #3 – Your Empathic abilities tend to be on the higher side. 

Most healers are Empaths. Even if they are in traditional medicine, usually they have an empathic connection with their patients. Sometimes they don’t even know they’re an Empath. But if you know you are, there’s a high probability you’re a healer.

Sign #4 – You have an anxiety or panic disorder. 

You would not think that this would fall under the healing category but it does.
People who have anxiety and panic disorders tend to have a very high ability to read energy.

The ability to read energy many times turns into a disorder because people don’t have the proper knowledge to understand what’s actually happening…they are an Empath! And many Empaths are healers.

Sign #5 – You feel like you should be doing more for humanity.

Helping humanity and being more conscientious of the planet. Basically, when you become in tune with your spiritual body, your natural healing abilities begin to surface. And you look at the world a little bit differently. You feel it in your heart, something guiding you towards the urge to be a part of healing humanity.

Sign #6 – You lived a past life as a healer.

Or past lives. You may not even remember this, but you will “feel” it. It’s a part of who you are. Most healers have done some type of healing work in other lifetimes.

So when your vibration begins to raise, your “soul’s memory” of being a healer in other lifetimes, will naturally begin to surface. And it will be like, “Hey, remember we do this? Remember you have this skill? Hey, we should do this more…” It’s familiar, it’s a part of your past, it’s part of who you are…and it feels good.

Sign #7 – People tend to come to you with problems or problems or issues. 

If people tend to come to you with their problems, or open up to you about issues they are having, that’s another strong indicator. It might be strangers, friends, family, or coworkers. If you’re the one who people tend to go to for advice or problem solving, that’s a sign of a healer.

Sign #8 – You’re in the healing field already, or you have a history of healers in your family.
For instance. you might have a lot of traditional doctors in your family. Or maybe you’re in the field of alternative medicine. It doesn’t matter the type of healing, it’s all along the same lines. So if you’re already in the healing field, or you have a history of healers in your family, that’s a good indicator.

Sign #9 – You have physical signs.

Survival Guide for Empaths and Highly Sensitive People

Being an empath or a highly sensitive person (HSP) in the modern world ain’t easy. Everyone is stressed—and empaths and HSPs are the emotional sponges, soaking it all up.

WHAT IS AN EMPATH?

To clarify, being a empath doesn’t just mean you care and feel for other people. It means you actually feel their emotions in your body. It can be sometimes difficult for true empaths to discern whether an emotion they’re experiencing is their own or someone else’s—which can be incredibly overwhelming and depleting.

(Note: while I use the terms “empath’”and “HSP” interchangeably, they are subtly different, as explained here.)

While being highly sensitive to the needs of others can be a truly wonderful quality, it takes some dedicated effort to manage. It’s ironic that empaths are so good at being there for other people and making others feel better—but it’s often to their own emotional and energetic detriment.

Empaths can easily become oversaturated with emotions, leading them to believe they are depressed, ill or flawed in some way. But that’s not usually the case. A sensitive person just needs time to recenter.

SURVIVING AS A HIGHLY SENSITIVE PERSON OR EMPATH

If you’re an empath, you really need to prioritize your self care. Here are a few basics that every highly sensitive person should have in their toolkits.

Practice breathwork

You know that dramatic friend you have who is always in a crisis? As an empath, it’s important to realize that they can be an energy suck—no matter how much you love them. If, while spending time with them, you can feel your energy being drained, focus on your breathing.

Holding your breath only allows negativity to fester and grow, so breathe deeply to ground yourself. Maybe also treat yourself to a little time out. Take a stroll around the block, a reprieve in the quiet bathroom or a relaxing drive to get away from the contagious drama.

Create physical space between yourself and perceived negativity.

Social situations can be really challenging for HSPs and empaths. Highly empathetic people deeply experience others’ negative energies. In fact, they tend to absorb them.

If you find yourself at a party in a conversation with energy-sucker, make an excuse to take a walk outside to balance and reground yourself. Then, keep your distance as much as you can for the rest of the event.

Social situations are already challenging enough. Create a bubble of safe, positive space around yourself to hold onto your own energy.

 

Know your boundaries.

As an HSP or empathic person, you probably tend to try to help people in need, no matter what. But when it comes to being there for people and sharing your positive energy, don’t be an overgiver—it’ll only deplete you.

Be polite, but let people know when you’ve reached your limits. Yes, you want to be there for the other person, but you need to honor yourneeds.

Try to become aware of when your emotional energy is reaching critical levels, and prioritize yourself. Place your oxygen mask on before assisting the person next to you.

Don’t be afraid to say ‘no’.

You simply can’t always be there for everybody. You need to prioritize your own needs, too. So practice saying no.

For instance, one day you’re wiped, but a friend wants to grab a drink and talk about their absolutely horrible day at work. Be polite and honest. Say, “Sorry your day was so rough, but I can’t tonight. I can grab coffee tomorrow and talk all about it, though.” You could even suggest that maybe it’s best for your friend to stay in, take a hot bath, and treat themselves, too!

Saying no isn’t mean. It’s being open and honest. You need to make time for your own needs, too.

Being a highly sensitive person means you need to guard yourself a little more than others. Your powers of sensitivity are a wonderful gift that can really benefit those around you, but you want to make sure that you are not suffering as a result. It may be tough for you, but start putting yourself first.
