Healers’ Code of Ethics
Much like any business and personal practice, there is an ethical code. This is a Code of Ethics that has been passed down from our teachers for the way we have been taught, the way we practice, the way we teach and what we wish for you, your clients and your business to succeed in the love of the practice.
With respect for our healing practice, we have an obligation to articulate our basic values, ethical principles and ethical standards. I share these values, principles and standards to guide your conduct within your provision of care as a healing professional and provider. This code is relevant to all students, regardless of their professional functions, the settings in which they work or the populations they serve.
- Maintenance: Keep healing yourself to remain healthy, retain a clear channel and raise your frequency. It is advised to be very gentle on drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, unhealthy habits and general tiring or draining lifestyles, behaviours and people as they lower your energies and frequency, causing you to be “out of tune”.
- Awareness: Pay attention to your surroundings as we easily pick up energies in the atmosphere.
- Growth: Keep practising (healing, meditation, learning, physical activities etc.) to cleanse, receive, achieve personal spiritual growth and to raise your frequency. Don’t forget to cleanse and ground yourself before and after every session to remain centred.
- Journal: Keep a journal. It doesn’t have to be every day; as and when you need to write, write.
- Privacy: Always keep your client information highly confidential – do not discuss with any friends/family/partners etc.
- Integrity: Try to tune your life, your behaviour, your thinking process and attitude on what the healer in you feels is right, or what the healer would recommend their clients to do. The ideal is not to have a disconnect between how you are in a session and how you are out of a session.
- Boundaries: Remember that you are a channel and you communicate messages and guide people who come to you. Therefore, keep your personal experience, judgement and opinions to yourself. The client is not there to pay for that. Healthy caretakers detach from their emotions so they can give and serve. It doesn’t mean you do not care, and you are not loving, it means keeping your own needs at a level and understanding that we can only truly heal ourselves, not others. Practice humility — you are a channel, an instrument of healing. Detach and observe.
- Flow: Let go of your expectations for yourself when giving a session and others when receiving a session. Detach from results – each person must follow their own unique path (even yourself!) and we are each responsible for our own realities and actions in life. You are a conduit for the healing energy to flow through you, not the cure, fix or answer. You cannot save the world, but you can assist others in whatever they are going through. Your job is to help each person to follow their path of freedom and happiness with compassion, love and understanding. Again, you have no control over a person, we all have free will.
- Honour: It is advised to everyone to remain truthful and to keep the purest intentions always, as a healer and as a person. We are all here to grow and learn. You don’t need to prove anything to others and the world. When giving of healing abilities becomes a spectacle, people will see and believe only what they want. Avoid this kind of situation. If you don’t you will attract people into your life with the same vibration.
- Ego: Avoid clients becoming dependant on you; you are a guide, not a reincarnation of God.
- Respect: Set your rules and lines of acceptance between friends and acquaintances.
- Trust: Let your light shine; you are worthy of developing yourself to your highest potential. Discover the power within you and let it shine out. The more we have faith, the more we stop letting our fears, doubts and worries control our lives.
- Patience: You are unique and exactly where you need to be now. Be patient — everything comes at the right time and the right moment for you. Where connection and channelling is low, there is always a reason! Trust yourself, have faith in your growth and the Universal sources.
- Support: As a healer, even though you can do many things on your own, there will be times when you will still need help. You may want to do swap sessions with other healers, or treat yourself to other types of sessions. Giving and receiving is important – caring for yourself is important!
