A couple of weeks ago, a healer shared the quote I’ve paraphrased below on Facebook:
No matter where we are when we meet, within 5 minutes I’ll know your pain, issues, hidden feelings and emotions. Because I’m a reader. It’s who I am and it’s what I do.
No. No. No. Not ok.
Healers must behave more mindfully if they want to take up their rightful place in the alternative and complementary healing field — a $14B service industry in 2016.
Know this: an ability to read people psychically does not confer permission to do so.
Healers who read people in social settings are unprofessional, and quite often untrained in psychic awareness. The leering quality of this behavior is especially toxic. When meeting someone socially, perhaps for the first time, it’s unlikely that they want to share deep, tender emotions and vulnerabilities.
