Dayna Nuckolls of The People’s Oracle has been talking on Twitter about how words matter, and the ease with which we forget that point and don’t always think before we write or speak. That attention really needs to paid to the words people use, especially these days in the time of a man who spouts “Fake news” and lies as easily as most people breathe (my words here, not hers).
I always have had a difficult time telling people what I do, in that sort of elevator description way. “I do energy healing” sounds…odd. What does that mean? And how do I heal you?
I’m not a healer. I do not heal you. I help you. What I am is the conduit for Divine healing energy (I call it “light” because of the colors some people see), but I’m not the one who knows what needs to be helped deep down inside, who loosens what needs to be loosened, who releases what needs to be released, who infuses you with the exact amount of light for your specific need…I’m not. I’ve never claimed to be and never, ever will claim to be.
I am the conduit.
What words do you use to describe yourself that just don’t sit right? What would fit better? How can you sit with the words and find the ones that matter the most? Who are you?
