Be a healer of those in need.
Spirituality or physically.
Reserve time for self,
To heal one’s self.
To heal is to give
Fill moments of despair
With unconditional gift.
Fill the emptiness of grief
With acceptance and love.
Healing self and others.

Each of us have the ability to be a healer. Each of us must be a healer of self.
Our parents, spouse, children, neighbor and friends, even co-workers enter
our lives with pain and suffering. It is in our nature to offer assistance..
It is a very rewarding and addicting experience. Healing can be a very
consuming and draining . It can also be frustrating and even painful for the
This note was written as a reminder to myself that I need to reserve
personal time to restore or rebuild the energy. There needs to be a bit of
self-preservation and self-preparedness to protect oneself. I have witnessed
professional healers work to a point of exhaustion. Their self-protection
was turned off by their compassion and internal need to heal those that are
in need. To run to exhaustion will cause the healer to become the patient over
time. Yet, there are moments in each of our lives that financially we knowingly
run the risk in order to meet the needs of our families.
With this knowledge and recognition healers need to be sensitive to their own
body and mind when they are giving us warnings.
