/, Personal Development, Psychology & Mental Health, Spirituality/21 Signs You Are an Intuitive Healer (and Don’t Even Realize It)

You may be an intuitive healer, whether you know it or not. Read these 21 signs to find out for sure.

We all have the ability to heal others. From the doctor that takes the extra time to find out what is really going on with his or her patient to the mother or father who kisses a child’s grazed knee. What if I told you that you could be an intuitive healer without even being aware of it?

We heal in many different ways from providing a shoulder to cry on and a bucket of ice cream for a friend who is sad, to more structured forms of healing such as Shamanism or Reiki.

If you look back at your life, you can probably see signs of how you have healed others by instinctively providing the emotional, physical and spiritual support they needed at the time.

There are many signs that show you are an intuitive healer and the list below is simply a starting point.

If you feel you are an intuitive healer, you will feel more fulfilled if you use your gifts. Do some exploration and research and follow your intuition. The world is waiting.

If you are still unsure if you are an intuitive healer, check out the signs below.

What to do if you are an intuitive healer

If you recognized several of these signs, then you are definitely an intuitive healer. It’s time to tap into your natural healing abilities.

You may like to focus on expanding your intuitive healing to help others more. In order to develop your skills, you might like to study a practice such as Reiki, Shamanism, Herbalism, Aromatherapy or any of the many types of healing practice.

Alternatively, you may choose to take a more low-key approach and simply pay attention to your intuition to help improve your own life and the lives of those you care about.

The world needs more healers, so stop hiding your talents and step into your purpose!

    A word of caution to anyone who fits this list but has not yet done energy work:


    The gift of energetic healing runs in my family. My grandmother died before I was born and my mother, as a conservative Christian, rejected her gifts. Energy manipulation can be very fun and rewarding; don’t get me wrong. But I never had a teacher. So, I had to learn the hard way that you can make things worse, for yourself or others, if you are not completely in balance/harmony within yourself.

    Always remember to meditate or pray before attempting to heal, and make sure that your entire body, and not just some of it, is in full alignment with healing energies.

    Best of luck to anyone else walking this path. Blessed be.

    I just listened to this article on youtube & I can relate to just about all of these signs. At the end of the article when it said “stop hiding & step into your purpose” I felt a “hug” of energy all over my body. I have come to realize that I am clairsentient, so it felt like the feeling was a sign towards my life purpose. Now to just figure out what the next step is.
