This past week, my good friend Kay Gillard posted up a new blog which has generated a bit of controversy. Within the article she specifically talks of the types of people she does not want to heal.
As healers, we are supposed to love everyone, and therefore if we admit that we don’t want to be of service to a particular person or type of person we feel that we are somehow unspiritual.

You can just imagine the talk that has been generated from those who believe as healers we should love and provide healing for ALL who ask for it.
Kay’s words are simple. We should only heal those we love, but we don’t have to love everybody.
There are people I don’t do healing work with. Those who are constantly needy and seeing demons in every shadow for one. Experience has taught me that whatever healing work I do for them will be sucked into a great black hole where it remains unused, and the person will be back seeking more healing sooner rather than later. Everything wrong in their life is the result of outside influences.
I don’t want to heal those who are constantly negative. Everything is horrid, and they aren’t happy unless everyone around them is miserable. I don’t want those people in my life.
These people may need healing, but I am not the person to provide it.
Like Kay though, there are people I do love who I do not do healing work with or on. I love my husband with all my heart, and then some. Experience though has shown that I am not able to do deep and in depth healing work with him. I am too biased and become too involved. Better for him and me that he someone else for energy healing work. Likewise, when I have sought help in moving through PTSD and post-natal depression I have gone to other healers besides my husband.
There are people in this world I don’t love, people I don’t like, people I don’t want to be around, people I don’t want around me. Some would say this means I am not a spiritual person, not an enlightened person.
I would say, if being enlightened and spiritual means that I have to love the arseholes of the world, then count me out.
So, thank you Kay for writing, and thank you for bringing into the open an unpopular topic of discussion.
