Listen

I’m starting to think that a healer is someone who asks “how are you?” and means it
They wait for your answer because they really want to know
There is something in the way they ask and the look in their eye that makes you feel safe
So you answer honestly and they let you speak
Anything is ok, any feeling at all
Nothing is good or bad and nothing is judged
They let you speak and they stay quiet and nod like they know what you mean because they do
And as you speak a kind of alchemy occurs and you end up feeling it’s ok to be you because the essence of you is ok with them
They stay and listen to your tender parts
Those hidden hurts you release and expose
And though you’re wide open they do you no harm so¬†you trust them
And to trust is to feel safe and to never feel alone
This is how the healer works
Seek them out — speak
And they will listen
