Do you want a medium, psychic, channeller or healer? And what is the difference? I see many people get understandably confused not knowing what type of healer they are looking for, or what service they need.
You'll hear multiple titles used for one healer, or listed on one website because most healers have multiple strengths and offer more than one service. But not everyone is clear on what they offer versus their capabilities. For example, I'm all of the titles listed below but I don't offer all of them as services. I always recommend it is best to seek someone who is trained in the area you're looking for and who does that work full-time. For example, I can do mediumship but I'm not interested in offering mediumship readings so if someone contacts me looking for that I recommend they seek a full-time medium who has made that training their priority. It's difficult to label yourself as a healer because you're trying to take something that exists without limits and put it into a context so it can be understood and received as much as possible. So as a practitioner who may be capable of multiple healing modalities you want to choose what best describes your strengths and services in order to reach your audience and connect with the right clients to be of optimal service. So let's quickly look at some of the most common titles you'll see.
When you're looking for a practitioner you first and foremost want to trust your gut. You will be drawn to the right healers at the right time if you are willing to ask, listen and trust. If you aren't sure ask the practitioner if what you're looking for is what they offer. A healer in their integrity will be honest and if they're not the right fit they'll encourage you to keep looking. I have no problem turning away clients that aren't a resonant match as it's in the greatest good for both of us. There are plenty of qualified healers offering a wide variety of services so ask spirit to connect you with the right one for you and follow the flow of synchronicity as you are led to them.
The theme this week has been coming up strong. This week has asked you to sit, connect with spirit, and listen. There have been two major elements for people to address this week.
The first is avoidance, particularly in regards to fear and shadow side work. We don't always intend to avoid the shadow side and its associated fear but it's natural when something is scary and intimidating that our instinct is to want to bypass it. Part of the reason you are being asked to sit with spirit is the need to face your fears rather than trying to skirt them. As long as you suppress or deny fear it maintains its grip on you and it will increase over time. As soon as you sit and face it, the grip can release. The saying I teach in my workshop is: Entertain the worst to have the best. You can't break through into your best case scenario if you aren't first willing to acknowledge the worst case scenario. It's completely liberating, as once you state your biggest fear out loud, it's no longer something to avoid but to embrace. What are you afraid of? Speak aloud the worst case scenario you've been trying to avoid, thereby taking the power away from fear, and reclaiming it in faith. Then move into your best case scenario. Life is most often going to land you somewhere in the middle. If something isn't right for you then why would you want it to drag on? Be willing to release your judgment that there is a good or bad way for things to play out and trust in what the universe delivers. Remember the eternal truth: If it's not this, it's something greater.
The other aspect this week has asked you to acknowledge any lack of initiative. One of the things I've always loved about Elliott is that he has so much general knowledge. I joke that he's my walking encyclopedia. When we first met, I'd always ask: How do you know that? And he'd say: I was just curious so I looked it up and learned about it. So simple yet so profound. It's that one small step between being curious about something and then taking the initiative to look it up and learn it. After recognizing this in him I would catch myself wondering about something and realizing how often I would just remain in wonder. So I changed that, and even if I'm busy I now make note of my question or curiosity so I can remember to research it later. Let's say you're a parent and your kid asks you a question, and like so many things in life you might not know. What a great opportunity to instil a good habit of sitting down and learning together. People's unwillingness to learn is most often attributed to a laziness or stemming from a disempowerment and a lack of self-trust: the belief that someone has information you don't, that someone else has your answers, or you just aren't that invested. This is why my work is aimed at increasing self-connection, trust, awareness, and empowerment. I want to help people break the habit of constantly reaching outside of themselves, and to redirect them so that going within is always their first instinct.
Moving forward, pay attention to what you wonder about and then make a note so you can take initiative and further explore as opposed to just forgetting about it. And where you resist, persist! Embrace that fear and show it who's boss. Fear can become your friend and work for you instead of against you. You will be surprised at how quickly you can find peace. And you will be grateful for how the smallest bit of initiative will develop your confidence and self-connection.
