Generally speaking, an energy healer is a person who uses holistic approaches to assist people in becoming naturally healthy individuals they are supposed to be.

While many institutes are offering energy healing certification courses of Touch Therapy, Aromatherapy, Crystal Healing, Color Therapy, etc., there are some people who possess the traits of an energy healer inherently.

Such people are helping others around them without even realizing it. If you too have been told by individuals, time and again, that it is soothing to be around you or you yourself have felt that perhaps you should try your luck in making your career as a healer, you may be an energy healer by nature.

Here are some signs to analyze whether you belong to that rare society of natural energy healers.

1. People around you rarely get sick

You are always there to keep them in a healthy state. You have long ago realized the accuracy of the axiom ‘Prevention is better than cure’ and keep reminding your friends and family about it. Even if someone around you does get sick, you prefer natural and remedial ways than the typical pharmacological medicines.

2. You possess an uncanny ability to perceive patterns

You tend to find a sort of pattern in almost everything. And with patterns, I do not mean the simple pictorial sequences. It is more about finding circumstantial patterns. These episodes which other people may call ‘coincidences’ cannot be that because what you experience goes beyond the literal meaning of the word.

3. You feel more connected to animals

And maybe this is why you like to spend more time with them. You must either be having a pet right now or must have a deep desire to have one. Even the pets of your acquaintances treat you like they belong to you. And perhaps this is the reason you are considering to adopt a vegan lifestyle.

4. Children are drawn towards you

You like spending some quality time with children every day. You must have observed that even the shy kids are less reluctant with you than they are with other people.

5. A long day with many social interactions drains the life out of you

problems only introverts will understand

Though being at occasional social gatherings does not give you nightmares, this is not something you look forward to. And it is not just social gatherings. Crowded places like shopping malls, fetes, and parties seem to leech the peace out of your mind too, which invariably is followed by dull headaches. You seldom feel lonely, and the only company that suits the best to you is the one of yourself.

6. You can sense the change in weather

Remember the last time you felt the day was not good for an outing even though it was perfectly clear outside, and later, a pouring rainfall ruined it for the ones who didn’t listen to you. Weather sensitivity is a rarely found sign, and if you possess it, then you probably are a natural energy healer.

7. You are what they call a ‘recipient of secrets’

You are the sage in your friend group. Your relatives are always filling you up with their grievances. Even strangers sitting beside you in metro suddenly start sharing their life regrets with you. Such is your energy or rather an aura. Though you inherently like to help people, you are so full of secrets now that you hardly ever feel curious to know the things other people would die for.

8. You are more of a listener than a speaker

People like to converse with you through more often than not, you don’t even pronounce a single syllable out of your mouth in such conversations. It could be because natural healers are innately empathetic and do not even have to speak. Their expressions and positive energy themselves are adequate enough to set people around them at ease.

9. You tend to help other people even if that is bad for you

This tendency is perhaps the reason behind the greatest regrets of your life. Still, you can not think of an alternate way of doing things even in a retrospect. Any person close to you knows about it, and the ones who really care have told you, time and again, not to put others’ needs ahead of your own.

10. Your interests and hobbies differ a lot from those of your friends

When your friends plan late-night beach parties, you are always among the few ones who have some pre-engagements. Your habitual dissenting attitude towards bash activities excluded you from the regular banter of your friend group long ago, and you are not in the least affected by this change, if not in a good way.

Your typical pastimes include reading, hiking, and maybe spiritual practices like yoga and meditation.

11. Your dreams and nightmares tend to be unnaturally vivid

dream sanctuary

And not only that, you have certain mysterious recurring dreams that are more vivid than others. Moreover, it is found among many natural healers to have a few dreams where they float in the air. Some experts are of the opinion that such floating dreams are supposedly a wake-up call from your spiritual being.

12. You have gone through (or are going through) a severe emotional situation

It could be anything from craggy relationships to negative work or school environment, but most often the reason is the loss of someone or something close to your being.

It is usually after such an incidental episode you might have experienced a curious change in your way of thinking, and perhaps this is also the reason why you are so empathetic to others.

13. You know how to cheer someone up

Your innate desire to help people and spread happiness makes you almost creative when it comes to buoy someone. Your sharp instinct also comes to your aid in such situations.

14. You are unintentionally health-conscious

Most of the natural healers are cognizant of others as well as their health. And maybe this is why most of them are naturally fit; naturally because they are never found fretting over fitness issues.

If you are a natural energy healer, then undoubtedly your tastes are very simple. Most of the people with such traits are inclined towards vegetarian and organic diet.

15. You have always felt that you do not quite belong anywhere

your depression to your advantage

If you have not yet joined any energy healing course or job, then you must have felt time and again that maybe you don’t belong to any place. No social gathering, vacation, or the job you are passionate about has yet made you feel attached. And you know in your heart that you would never feel complete until you are in the proper place.

16. Drugs always affect you differently or not at all

Now, this is something proven scientifically. Drugs (even the medicinal ones) do not affect you the way they affect other people. And even if they do (rarely so), their effects are either too weak or too divergent. On the other hand, the herbs that do not seem to influence people at all have a considerable effect on you.

17. Sometimes you experience peculiar sensations

The effect of these sensations leaves you with emotions ranging from fear to embarrassment. A sudden drop in blood pressure, tingling in your palms, inexplicable light-headed feeling, and disconcerting twitching, etc. are the most common sensations felt by the natural healers of all degrees.

If you can relate to more than eleven of the above-mentioned signs of being a natural energy healer, then indeed it is time to consider your career options. You may even enroll yourself in some institute offering varied energy healing courses, in order to receive proper guidance and start living the life to serve the purpose you were born for.

      This article made me cry in the best way 🙂 I didn’t know there was such a strong reason for this feeling in my life.

  2. Kristen Callahan

    Thank you for the reminder. I am a Reiki practitioner, in fact a master, but frequently forget that this is my place in the universe.


    I hit every last one to an extreme degree.

    1. denise

      I have also wanted to have a job with children or animals, or both… Studied psychology and became interested in the effect animals have on autistic children. I was heading in that direction during my courses but my path has been somewhat blocked after many hardships and losses.

      1. Gia

        Hi Denise, I can relate. I would be grateful to connect with you. I can relate and would like to talk with you and maybe help with clarity.

  8. Capt.Arvinder Singh Wasu

    I related to all the 17 points and have been in close contact and influence with a oranic healer who is a natural born.He even taught it to my wife and my Sister in law but they do not do it for money.
    I never felt I was good enough for being someone who can do spiritual stuff that’s why I never pursued it for myself .Reading this article made me realise I maybe able to do it cause I hv seen the changes that have come to me and my life leading to all the Indications listed here coming to be strong personality traits now for me.

    Can you guide me further on any literature available although yeah I know I have a guru right at home literally.

  9. Robin Hernandez

    I have known since I was I child I was more in tune with things than my peers but did not understand why. Now that my kids are gone I can focus on myself more and have to slow down and notice things. God is calling me for something and I can’t figure out what. Driving me crazy

  10. Pamela

    Maybe I do have a purpose…

    1. Jennifer Wilson

      Seems you were just talking about me….

  11. Desmond Kier

    Thanks for sharing this amazing article, it touched me personally. I almost felt like crying….thanks indeed.

  12. Lorraine Ryan-Hearl

    I do believe I maybe possibly b not so much a healer (but kinda could be i guess). But I DO effect electricity and electronics.and I don’t know what it tells me. But it does tell me that I have something more to my energy. And I can feel energy in my body that is almost in a physical sense. N obviously there would be a lot more to this but I thought I’d share this and hope that somebody reads it and can maybe point me somewhere insome direction … That would be cool. Cuz sometimes my energy makes me feel like a.🌪️🌪️ Sometimes .

    1. jay d

  13. Dc

    My friend who has stage 4 lung cancer now, every time I visit her, she looks like a normal healthy person, I make her smile and she love to talk to me, she always look forward for my day off so I can spend more time with her. I am doing the best I can to keep her spirits up. Am I a healer?

  14. Simone

    I am leaving this message for student Author Adam Jackson. if he could send me an email I have a couple of questions Id like to ask him, If thats possible ? Details below

    Blessed Be ❤⚘

  15. Ellie

    I pretty much answered yes to everything. Though I want to ask, you say I could consider a career in healing. How can I effectively do that if I’m not healed myself?

  16. Sakshi

    i have all of them and i want to know more about it and how to completely master it, please can you help me in suggesting videos, links, etc. or can you talk to me about these things, check if it is real or not.

  17. Angela

    Gosh I have 15 love being in the nature and meditate my hands and feet pulse to the touch of the earth. Yes I have a strong connection to healing through massage and remedies. My sons are always well better when I work of them with my love and gratitude to what I cook and when I massage. Stay Happy Healthy Aligned and Safe. Love Peace and Harmony 🙏🏻😊

  18. Esposito

    I have all 17 and sometimes I feel things that I can’t explain, sometimes I dream at night or day dream and see things that eventually come to be true in real life, I feel drained when I see certain people but these past few months I feel like everything has stopped and I can’t understand why

  19. heather hill

    Hello, this is the first comment I have made of all the hundreds of articles I have read, but could not help myself in this instance. I could not help but notice most if not all comments were questions, I find this so very interesting in itself, let alone everything this article. Very very interesting!!!

  20. David

    Number 7 is especially true for me. People will tell me severely personal things, and I can only think “What did I do to deserve your trust?” I don’t give advice, but only listen. But still, I’ve always found it shocking. My sister-in-law told me something out of the blue like that just a few days ago. We don’t have a strong relationship. She’s not the first, but it’s a pattern.

  21. Dreamer

    just smile and listen, it really does help
