Healer, Heal Thyself. This is a phrase I’ve heard often. It’s also one of the first things my Reiki 1 teacher invited me to do when she gave me my attunement.
It wasn’t easy to embrace this path. I would have preferred to simply go about healing others without having to look at my own crap. But, as a Reiki Master and Intuitive Healer, I knew if I wanted to truly hone my craft, that’s exactly what I needed to do.
I took a long, hard look at my life and cut out anything and everything that wanted to keep me fat, tired, sick, or in pain.
Whatever I was ingesting – physically, mentally, emotionally, or Spiritually – was up for grabs.
This was hard because all the constructs holding my illness, and the life I built around it, in place, had to change… diet, career, friends, living conditions… all if it.
If I wanted to heal, I couldn’t live like a sick person anymore.
I poured every ounce of willpower I had into forming a new, healthier, happier, version of myself.
I took my time and allowed the changes to happen gradually, in the order that was easiest for me.
Eventually I reclaimed my health, completing the command I was given from the moment I received my Reiki 1 Certification.
This healer healed herself.
You can heal yourself, too. All it takes is the willpower and dedication to make one healthy decision at a time. I was worth the effort. So are you.
