Each and every one of us has the potential to be of service, and to help assist healing in anyone we come into contact with in our day to day lives. Yet most of us don’t realize or believe this truth. I am here today to express this universal truth and share 3 ways this can be realized within our day to day lives.
It doesn’t take a superhuman, or an empath, or a ton of energy to be there for someone. My friends often call me a therapist, and I kind of am an unofficial therapist. That’s what friends are for! I understand that I am rather gifted in this realm, too. However, this is not something that only ‘some people’ with ‘certain gifts’ can do. Even if it does feel that way sometimes. I was inspired to write this piece when I was remembering a specific scene in Tony Robbins netflix documentary, I Am Not Your Guru (I highly highly reccomend this one by the way).
Tony is speaking about how he does what he does, and recalls a philosophy of his, “There is always a way.” There is always a way to find love and healing is what he is speaking of. There is always a path to whatever he needs to channel, it is just a matter of finding it. This brings us to the first of 3 ways ANYONE can be a healer.
“There is always a way” – Tony Robbins
1- Be Open :
There is always a way, it is just a matter of finding the path. And you cannot find the path if you are coming from a place of resistance. By choosing openness you literally create space for the answers, pathways, and insight to come through and light the way.
If you’re out for coffee or lunch with a friend, and they’re telling you this story of the drama or chaos in their life and you just don’t know how to help them, but you know there has to be some way to soften to situation you’re right. Choose openness and you will be amazed at what insight and solutions will come forward.
2- Listen :
Once you have opened up, guidance and wisdom will flood through, no doubt. This guidance and wisdom is of no help to you as a healer though if you do not listen to the answers. Once you open up, tune in. Listen closely to the whispers of insight and solution.
From there you can offer up options and there will be a dialogue of solution rather than dwelling. This shift in focus will begin to manifest the right solution and create healing within whomever you’re helping.
3- Be Supportive + Honoring
Something many people often don’t understand is that healer’s do not commonly do much of the healing part. A healers job is to create a safe space, one that is protected, filled with good energy, and is supportive. To inspire healing, growth, and positive shifts in others, you yourself must first be an example of these things.
Bringing a supportive and honoring energy to the space or moment is one of many ways to be that example. Even if you are merely holding a small conversation with a stranger on a bus you can be supportive of their presence and honoring of their feelings, stories, ways of finding clarity, etc.
There are many many more ways to be a healer, or have a healing presence. These 3 are the easiest, simplest, and most impactful ways to show up for anyone who you encounter throughout life.

I hope these 3 practices help you to help heal the world around you.
