When I am looking for credentials, I make sure the person has proper licensing to insure legal training and ethics are followed according to the parameters of the profession. More importantly, I ask friends who they like in the area. If that's not enough, I make sure the person has been practicing at least 5 years. That's enough time to determine if they have the talent and stamina to remain in the field. After which, I look at any online reviews with a grain of salt and see if they sound true.
I have three standards that I hold dear when choosing a healer:
- Their work inspires me. I want to work with someone who not only loves what they do, but I feel our moments together have impacted me.
- Their curiosity leads their work rather than judgment or a plan. I want to work with someone who is able to go with the flow and the moment because at all times anything can change.
- They love what they do. The love for something will motivate a person to go further and inquire more than someone who is just doing a job.
Next time you're looking for a healer, keep in mind the things that make a healer great!
