I have been talking about this for many years and it is reaching epidemic proportions at this point. Each and every week I hear from someone, somewhere how they have been to see a healer, energy worker, therapist, holistic practitioner of some kind and that now they are 'worse'. And not worse in the healing crisis sense of things- but worse for the work that has been done on them.
You cannot do a weekend course in 'energy' therapy of any kind and consider yourself competent. You cannot live your life as a 'healer' and carry on as if this was an ordinary job. You cannot live with one foot in this world and one foot in another.
At some point you have to make a decision about what you want to be or do with your life and then you have to do it. This is not a job for just anyone- either you are with the programme and you eat, live, walk like a healer or you do not. You are either walking the talk and following the way of the healer or you are not. There are no shortcuts, there is no time off and there are no breaks.
This is full on, lifelong and hard work.
To do less than any of these is to short change yourself, the people you work with and what is worse, to create more harm than good.
Time to make a decision people, walk it or leave it.
