Healers, also known as light workers, are individuals dedicated to serving humanity and helping others navigate emotional pain. Sensitivity, emotional maturity, and a high level of empathy are common traits of healers. Healers can be professionals in fields such as therapy, teaching, or mental health coaching, but they can also be regular people with a natural inclination towards supporting and empathizing with others. Healers often have a deep intuition and can sense the energy of a room or person, even without physical proximity. The healers themselves require support and healing, as they carry their own baggage and traumas. Holding space for a healer can be challenging for friends and loved ones, as it requires a specific level of emotional capacity. Healers need healers too, as they require support to process their own emotions and continue growing in their ability to hold space for others. #FriendshipGoals #HealthyFriendships #TrustAndRespect #Accountability #GoodFriends #MentalHealthAwareness #PersonalGrowth #OpenConversations #CoreValues #understanding Podcasters- MHAE Website | MHAE Instagram |
