Healing: What Does It Mean?

Updated: May 29, 2023

I practice healing as a profession, but the word has become so overused and diluted that its meaning has been obscured.


Healing may not be what you think it is. What does it look like?


There are many formal definitions of healing


A Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of healing suggests that it can mean many things. Each definition has its own nuances. Here are a few:


  • Making sound or whole: free from injury or disease

  • Overcoming an undesirable condition

  • Restoring purity or integrity to its original state


There are no definitions that really explain healing in a way that encompasses everything it means to me personally and professionally.


Healing according to me


Here's my definition of healing. It's not just my own interpretation. It's influenced by everything I've read, learned, and experienced so far as an energy healing practitioner:


Animals heal by returning to their natural state of wellbeing - one that aligns their mind, body, and soul.


Healing is never linear, and it never truly ends.


Energy healing is one of the ways we can restore balance to our animal's bodies, minds, and souls.


We must continuously practice healing.


I think it's also important to cover what healing isn't.


While healing can result in a resolution of the problem at hand, it's not a one-and-done solution, and it's not about "fixing" our animal.

Another point I would like to make is:


Your animal is not really being healed by healers


There's nothing scandalous about it.


During a healing session, your animal is actually healing himself. Pretty cool, huh?


Healing is an inside job, as you may have read or heard.


Due to the fact that I am not the one actually doing the healing during a session, I do not use the word "healer" to describe myself. Basically, I'm holding space for your animal so that he can heal himself. My job is to facilitate the healing or to make the right conditions for his natural healing response to kick in.


How Does Healing Look?


My clients demonstrate healing in a variety of ways. Here are some examples:


  • Feeling relaxed, grounded, and centered instead of anxious and tense

  • Feeling energized and refreshed after feeling drained and tired


Healing can manifest in many different ways. What it looks like for each animal and situation will vary. These examples are just a few of the many ways we see evidence of healing.


I would be honored to help your pet experience healing through a healing session if you want to see what it looks like for your animal.
