When I first started developing my gifts, it was because I was told by Spirit through another intuitive, a medium who happened to be my sister, that I had the gift to heal others.  I was told that this was the familial, ancestral gift of shamanism that had been passed down to me.

It’s tough to say what would or could have happened if I had not received this information at the exact time that I did, but one thing is certain, the gift was already present and evident through many signals and clues existent in my life.

If you’re a healer, chances are there are signs, signals, and cues all around you. the key is knowing where to look.  

You don’t need to know a medium or see an intuitive reader of any kind to know that you have a healing gift.

All you need to do is look at your own life.

I’ve compiled a list of 29 signs that you have a healing gift. Some may surprise you.
