We are all truly gifted individuals.
At times, we define ourselves in ways that are accepted by family, society and culture. One of my first teacher’s in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp asked the class one night, ‘Who are you?’ I responded with the typical, mother, sister, aunt, friend, teacher, writer and he said, ‘No, who are you? Think about it.’ Finally, it dawned on all of us: We are spiritual beings. It’s true we are all powerful spiritual beings.
Again, we are truly gifted individuals. It says so in 1 Corinthians 12 – The Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Each of us has received gifts from Spirit to include wisdom, knowledge, faith, to heal, to do miracles, prophecy, discernment of spirit, speak in tongues (other languages unknown to persons) and interpretation of tongues. All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. Gifts are given to each and every person.
In addition to being a powerful spiritual being, one of the gifts I received was to heal – faith and to do miracles fall under that scope. I relearned this again in healing class the other night.
I am a Reiki Level II Practitioner and Arcing Light Teacher. I received attunements through a Reiki Master and Arcing Light Teacher (founder), and of course the powers that be – Spirit.
As a healer, I am a conduit of the healing energies that flow through me to the recipient to heal body, mind and/or spirit. To be a conduit of the healing energy, the healer must step aside (mentally) – move to a place of just being. I’ve always been a healer.
Backstory: When I was around 7 years old, I’d go upstairs to rub my aunt’s feet. They were sore all the time. I’d use lotion to rub her feet, her ankles and lower calves. I didn’t always like to do it, but would be swayed by my father. I remember my aunt would say, ‘You have healing hands.’ I just thought it felt good to her, not knowing the full depth of what she was saying.
So here I am, a healer and a prophet, also known as a seer. What are your Gifts of the Holy Spirit? You’re not much different than I am. We all receive Holy Gifts from the same God. It’s time we all start to awaken to our true selves, and come to the understanding that we are one and we are all powerful spiritual beings.
Blessings of Peace and Love!
