Are You a Psychic or Healer? How to Deal With Difficult Clients
Psychics and healers face a difficult task. We are not only to be accurate and helpful, but also compassionate, forgiving, honest and philanthropic. We are asked to be spiritual guides, mentors, prophets and discerners of the past. We are asked to take away both physical and emotional pain. We are asked to resolve perceived disputes between the physical and divine worlds. We are asked to align energy chakras, find objects, identify the thoughts and feelings of others and help with meditation and past life regressions. It is our calling and our gift and we are not only compelled but required to serve our fellow souls to the best of our ability. We are blessed and happy to do it, feeling peace and purpose on our path of guidance. To top it off, we are expected to take criticism and sometimes abuse and slander from clients.
How do we traverse the deep ocean of criticism and berating that we sometimes endure? I believe it starts with trust. The first step in handling these difficulties is that we must trust in ourselves and our gifts, the knowledge that we are not capable of eliminating pain in its entirety, humility in our abilities and a relinquishing to the Higher Power all that is left unsettled.
We have all experienced situations with clients that have left us either questioning our abilities or our callings or at best had left us shaken and energetically drained and hurt. We emerge from the encounter wishing we could have done more for the clients, insulted by their responses or having taken it personally, angry at the individuals.
What we need to remember is that people come to us because they are seeking a higher truth. The spiritual energy most people experience daily, wrought with routine and mundane obligations is not easily overlooked for spiritual purposes without some sort of guidance from spiritual professionals. Religious leaders, psychics, healers and gurus are often sought to assist in making the transition from living in the past and future, to aligning with the present, whether through psychic readings, energy work or healing practices.
So how do we leave our work home at the end of the day like others professionals? An important key is to remember that even if we receive a scathing review, it is in no way indicative or our abilities. We do not have control over what energy and information comes through. All we can do is “ask” for the information. If the client is not meant to hear it, we will not be told. If the energy that the healer is trying to align is not receptive to movement at the moment, the client will not feel change. We all know this, but why is it so hard to live the life of a spiritual person without taking these setbacks personally? The reason is because despite our gift, we are still human beings. We have the same hang ups and issues as the clients we serve. We struggle with spiritual issues occasionally as well.
Dealing with spiritual and professional issues is often a group effort. We do this by acting as a community, seeking guidance from each other, honoring our human connection with our clients, having compassion for their perspectives and being humble. Remember that humility is the cornerstone of our work. Although we may have cultivated and improved our gifts, we did not earn them. They were given to us for a purpose. Just as there is a reason for a wonderful encounter full of information and clarity, so is there a divine reason for a difficult one. So rise above it, remember your calling and continue on!
