Since I was a teenager I have felt led to be a healer. I’ve always sensed a connection between healing, caring, and spirituality. However, I have also always wrestled with three spiritual questions regarding healing: Why do many innocent and good people suffer, how do I deal with the difficulties I face in healing, and what do I need to convey to clients and students? I don’t have the answer to these questions, but want to offer three poems that guide me in wrestling with these three sequential questions. The first question came early when I was struggling to find meaning in the life and death of an infant who died in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where I was working.
The next question is the meaning of healing in an uncertain and often painful life, answered in this Poem revised and posted my Mother Theresa
Finally, I want to share this Marianne Williamson speech that was given by Nelson Mandella, discribing the reality I hope that I, my clients, and all my students realize in themselves
