10 Helpful Inner Practices for the Transitioning Healer

Have you been waking up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat wondering if you’re going to be able to make the transition from working on family and friends to starting up your very own energy healing practice?

Is your stomach all tied up in knots? Are you unsure about what to do and where to go from here?

If so, then you are a transitioning soul in the middle of a crisis.

Transitions are rough. They’re hard on your body, spirit, and emotions. The good news is that there are things you can do to stabilize your transition.

Here are the 10 main inner practices I used to ease my transition from working as a teacher to becoming an energy healing coach:

1. Allow the process.

Big change often feels like death, as if an old part of you must die in order for the new part of you to be born. The birthing of something new requires a deep integration. So allow that to happen. Some things will cease to be. Others will take on a new form.

2. Stay in charge of your happiness.

Understand that you determine your happiness—not someone or something outside you.

3. Reach beyond what you fear.

Don’t go through it. Reach beyond to something greater, something more important than what you fear.

4. Trust that everything in your life is unfolding exactly as it is meant to be.

Spend as little time as possible asking why or looking for answers. Trust and know.

5. Make your inner voice the predominant voice you listen to.

Turn to others for support. Turn inward for guidance. Not the other way around.


6. Remain unattached to outcome.

Fretting about the future or worrying about the past keeps you attached. Stop doing both, and you’ll be surprised at the number of doors that open, pathways that light up, and possibilities that present themselves to you.

7. Stay connected.

Don’t allow your fears to multiply by isolating yourself. Remain in contact with family and friends who support your vision, and stay involved with leisure activities that you enjoy.

8. Take good care of yourself with a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Eat nutritious food, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. Weekly massages are terrific at releasing and balancing the body.

9. Meditate and practice T’ai Chi or Chi Gong to center and ground yourself, increase your energy, and sooth your psyche.

10. Avoid jumping into anything new too soon.

Go slowly. When your life is disrupted by a transition—even one you initiate—it takes time to adjust to the new reality. Use that time to reflect and think about what is really best for you.

Doing these 10 inner practices will help you feel better while making the transition from working on family and friends to starting up your energy healing practice. Doing these inner practices will help relax the tension in your body, clear away the fog of confusion in your mind, and allow your inner voice to speak to you.
