Healers have existed since ancient times. Healing abilities were passed down from generation to generation and have come down to our times. However, some people do not even know that they have the gift of a healer. It is transmitted to them at the genetic or spiritual level, and often this gift is brought from past lives. Many of us live with this special gift without even knowing about our healing potential. If you’re wondering if you are a spiritual healer, this article is for you! In this article, we will share with you 7 signs you are a healer.
7 Signs You are a Healer
Here are 7 telltale signs you are a healer that you shouldn’t ignore!
#1: You are an empath
As an empath, you instinctively feel what others feel. You are very sensitive to the energies/vibrations that surround you, both thoughts and emotions, of other people, animals, plants, and even spirits.
Being an empath makes you capable of feeling if someone else is experiencing pain long before they even say so. However, you should be careful as you run the risk of picking up that pain and mistaking it for your own.
#2: You have a strong connection with nature
Nature is the source of vital energy. As a natural healer, you are, by definition, close to nature. Do you love to walk in the forest or by the ocean? Do you enjoy the sound of running water? Do you like to be around animals or surround yourself with plants and trees? Of course, you do, because this works great for natural healers like you as you feel that being in nature helps you to ground yourself and clear your aura from negativity or excessive energy. You may not even think about it but you just feel the need of being close to nature to “recharge” yourself.
#3: Strangers open up to you easily
Because of your empathic abilities, strangers feel comfortable and safe to open up to you and share their problems with you. Deep inside people intuitively feel that you can help them and therefore are attracted to you. The fact that someone decides to talk to you about a problem is an important step in the healing process. Your ability to listen, comfort, and support people is healing itself.
#4: You attract animals on your path
One of the signs you are a healer is your ability to attract animals on your path.
Do animals seem to follow you when you walk alone? Are cats, dogs, birds, or other animals attracted to you? Have you ever noticed that aggressive pets change their nervous behavior when meeting with you to friendly, or even affectionate? If this describes you then it could be a sign that you are a healer. Natural healers radiate the energy of a certain frequency that is visible to animals. When sensing the healing vibrations coming from you, animals want to be closer to you.
And this applies not only to pets. There are known cases when enraged wild animals unexpectedly not only calmed down when meeting with some people but also did not show aggressiveness. It is likely that this is how they indicated a meeting with healers.
#5: Your palms can radiate heat
People who are able to help others with the warmth of their hands, undoubtedly, have certain abilities. This kind of heat is not always felt only when you touch it. It is enough just to bring the palm closer to some part of the body, as this heat is felt by the patient.
This heat is a healing energy that is always active whenever someone in need for healing is around you.
#6: You tend to have vivid dreams
Do you tend to have vivid dreams? The unseen realm may be communicating with you through your dreams. You can receive information, advice, or instructions for solving problems and helping other people in your dreams. These dreams can even be prophetic.
Therefore, you should try analyzing your dreams carefully. If you don’t have a dream journal, it’s time to start one! Pay particular attention to any symbols, signs, or animal totems that may appear in your dreams, for these symbols, signs, and animals could be trying to send you an important message.
#7: You are very intuitive
Another sign you could be a healer is your good intuition. Do you have a very strong inner compass? Are your gut reactions usually spot on? Do you feel negative energy coming from some people even without looking or talking to them? Can you feel when particular places and buildings could be dangerous for spending time there even if they look safe and peaceful for others? Then you could be a natural healer.
You see, healers are naturally very intuitive and can sense and see what most people can’t. If this describes you, make sure you pay attention to your intuition, even if it contradicts what your rational mind is telling you.
Are You a Born Healer?
After reading the above 7 signs of being a healer, do you feel like this describes you? If this sounds like you, it’s time to embrace your healing potential and share your gifts with the world. Maybe you can even consider a healing job or at least doing your current job in some healing way.
If you are a born healer, you have that internal desire to help others. Think about different ways you can share your healing gifts. However, make sure you have healthy boundaries with your patients and don’t take their problems and pains as your own. Remember to always ground yourself, cleanse your aura, and practice energy hygiene.
