We each attract those we need to learn from.
After a recent healing, it became very obvious to me there is no difference between the teacher and the student. Or in this case, the healer and the client. During the healing, I listened carefully to the words that she spoke, and to what I said to her, because the Spirit will use these interactions to give messages we both need to hear. As I talked of the difficulties of following a spiritual path, her loving response gave me encouragement. But, as she offered me advice, her own dreams came to the surface. When she spoke of her concerns, I offered advice that I hoped would inspire her and found the words rang true for me as well.
Then a soul retrieval was performed to heal one of her painful childhood memories. With this trauma forgiven and released, and her soul part reunited, she was now open to receiving the energy from her true self and the Spirit more abundantly.
A power animal provided a message that she had been become chained by familial and societal expectations, and offered its archetype power to help her set on a course that was uniquely hers. Her healing provided a message for both of us… “follow your unique course in life… living up to others expectations isn’t working for you… have the courage to live it!” We offered each other a gift, and received more than we gave.
Every healing reminds me that my clients bring me as much healing as I offer them. We open a sacred space, where love and trust can flourish, if only for a little while, away from the harsh realities of the world.
