What is Healer Hopping and Why it Doesn’t Work

I see what I like to call Healer Hopping quite a bit in my line of work (Reiki) and I thought it might be helpful to some folks to understand what it is and how it actually works against you when you’re trying to heal the soul.

Healer Hopping is just what it sound like. It’s hopping from one healer to another because there doesn’t seem to be a healer that can help you. You go to your doctor and nothing changes. You go to a chiropractor and nothing changes. You go to an acupuncturist and nothing changes. Hypnotherapist, Reiki practitioner, a trail of other energy healing modalities and all you feel is more and more frustrated because no one seems to be able to identify why you’re having these issues and they can’t seem to cure them.

Would you like to know why? You might not like the answer…

Because no one can do your work for you. That’s why.

Listen, if I break my leg then I need a doctor. If I am born with a cleft palette then I need a plastic surgeon. However, I’m here to tell you that most of your issues are a direct result of inner work you need to be doing on your Self and your energy.

Here’s the thing: We are energy beings in the midst of human experiences and with that comes a lot of punches. Those punches lead to emotional blockages in our energetic bodies and if they’re not released and healed they will turn into physical symptoms, and eventually disease. Don’t even get me started on the list of diseases that have “No Known Cause”. I’ll tell you the cause right now:

You’re not dealing with your shit.

That’s not to make you feel bad, my friend. First, most of us don’t even know that we can actually deal with our own shit. We’re raised in a society that makes gazillions of dollars on making sure we stay sick in one way or another. Sickness = BIG $$. Period. Without question, we believe that we have no power in our own healing process and the truth is that we are the number one cure for our own healing process. We hold ALL of the power. Second, you’re not supposed to heal alone. There will always be someone out there that is better trained than you to help you. The trick is to find the healer that works collaboratively with you, not in place of you.

True healing is a journey. It’s a learning experience and it takes a lot of commitment and courage. And guess what? You have unlimited reserves of both, I can guarantee it.

So the next time you’re searching for a cure, consider that you already know what it is, you already have the power to initiate it, and that you are the one that holds the key to living a pain-free life of health, and joy, abundance, and contentment. If you’ve got the chutzpah, all that’s left is finding someone (or someones) you trust to guide you through that journey.
