God Heals, Therapist Administers

called me to ask me if I would teach her Reiki.
I asked her to tell me more about herself. She
proceeded to tell me how she has these healing
abilities and she just guesses correctly for
people and how she "helps" and how she
wishes that people change and how people thank
her and how that makes her so happy and how she
suffers for people.
that I will teach her Reiki only from the point
of view that we never fix or suffer for anyone.
That God heals and therapist administers. That
our own little self has no role in the whole
deal except to somehow arrange the whole
situation and remind the client to hook up with
God again. And therefore the healer must be
healed first. How can we remind anyone of
anything unless we are an obvious example?
woman never called again. Most people are like
that, ready to fix the world. The hardest thing
is to fix oneself first and thus provide
meticulous service and thus provide a shining
example of what God life is like. A true healer
is dedicated to that.
time ago when I was young and foolish, I
believed that I was very spiritual and pure and
that I was going to save the world. Since then,
I lost too many illusions about my own purity
and am humbled about the amount of personal work
I need to do. Also, I realized how powerful and
tempting trap it is to believe we are ok and how
we will fix others. It disempowers the people
and makes them somehow broken, and makes us too
good. In other words, it is arrogance at play.
Also, laziness, to do any personal work but
rather dictate to others what to do. That is a
really big trap for healers.
huge trap is to be hooked on people thanking us,
and "getting healed." If we expect
people to get healed, then we get angry if they
don't get healed. Our image depends on something
external. Again, only God knows about that
person and their path. We can do only what we
feel is the best course, and provide the best
service we can.
those traps are about feeling special as a
healer. Sometimes we feel special because we
imagine we are sacrificing and suffering for
trap is to expect money for services. Money,
accolades, etc. Then we are forcing people into
kissing ass. That means we are forcing them to
be dishonest, and that is definitely not
other hand, being a healer requires disciplining
others. If they try to get service and not pay,
if they are not respectful, then they should not
have it. They don't value it.
it is a dance, where both client and healer have
to work together and call the God in and follow
knows it all. Nobody else does.
