There is a thing about that. It's a thing.
Once I went to a counsellor because I was depressed and I wanted not to be. I thought he was very naive. I don't think he had much experience with suffering. I thought I was smarter than him. But I let him help me. Because he knew the right questions to ask. He had the tools I needed. It did help. He was not a healer. But he helped me to be.
I am a healer.
What does a healer do? A healer heals. That is something I know alot about.
The thing is that your deepest wounds are your greatest gift. In healing those wounds, you gain wisdom. In living with those wounds, you learn what it is to live with wounds. You deal with them. You live, you learn, you heal. Then you are experienced and can teach others. MUST!
There is a mythical story about Chiron, who was abandoned by his mother because she thought him a monster, and who later taught many children to be great and moral and wise, and who learned healing wisdom, and who healed many wounded and sick, and taught the healing wisdom to others, but he was shot with a poison arrow, and couldn't heal his own wound.
Chiron is an astrological figure, an asteroid out near Pluto, who represents your inner wounded healer. Your deepest wounds, and how they bring your greatest power. When I say yours I mean mine. Astrology works by patterns and symbolism, like literature, and energy. These are things I know about.
Are you a wounded healer?
