Healing the Healer
No one can be a full-time healer.
It is too much to ask from any human being.
Every healer needs to take time off
to re-center and re-charge.
A healer’s first commitment must be
to do no harm to others.
If she is not vigilant about taking care of herself,
she will get sick or depleted.
Then she will have no energy to give
to anyone else.
Healers that don’t take time to nurture themselves
inevitably burn out.
