29 Signs You Are A Healer Or Have Healing Abilities


When I first began developing my gifts of shamanism, it was since I had learned in reading given by my sister, I had the talent to heal other people. I was told this was actually the familial, ancestral present of shamanism that was passed down to me.It’s hard to say what would or could have occurred if I had not received this information in the specific time which I did, however one thing is sure, the present was evident and present through many signs and clues existent in my life.

If you’re a healer, chances are you will find signs, signals, and clues all around you. The important thing is knowing where to look.You don’t have to know a medium or see an intuitive reader of any sort to know you own a recovery gift.All you need to do is look in your life.

  1. I was able to check off between 15 to 20 of these signs. It actually caused my hair to rise on the back of my neck a little when I read through the list and noticed I shared so many of these traits. This would be another case of a new revelation, although I’ve always known that I had an empathetic side to myself, I had never actually thought of myself as a healer. I DID know that I had 2-3 spiritual gifts but had not included “healer” as one of them until now. This has brought a clearer understanding of myself to me, and I may be better able to accept my tendencies to go out of my way for others……..which has frequently annoyed me with myself in the past. Perhaps I will be more tolerant of these tendencies now that I understand where they come from.

  2. I checked most of them. I’ve always been different according to my family. I run to the most unusual people with love since I was one and a half years of age, my Dad said it was so unusual, I don’t know why. Yes, I ended up an R.N. with no medical people in my family. I can enter a place an immediately tell right or wrong is there. I have never felt I was different.
