Why do we think healers need to be undamaged, without flaw, fixed? Healers are nothing more than human beings with a gift and a calling. They are only perfect at being themselves and are subject to the same problems and issues as the rest of the world. A good healer is one who knows and understands how difficult life can be at times and that it’s not always simple and easy to change negative patterns or behaviours. A good and competent healer is one who can listen to their client and move their own ego out of the way. Their intention must pure at all times, and know that everyone deserves the opportunity to be healed. They must be compassionate. Above all else, they need to treat their gifts and clients with honour, respect, integrity, and gratitude. They do NOT need to fit Webster's definition of perfection.
