Healing with the help of a healer is a natural process where beneficial energy flows between a healer and a recipient. This energy is believed to deal with “dis-ease” at the deepest possible level. It also frees up a person’s natural resources so that they are working for the person, not against the “dis-ease.” This type of healing includes physical, psychological, and spiritual ailments.

Healers are the people who facilitate this specific type of healing. It is important to understand that healers do not heal another person — nature does the healing. Healers act as a catalyst and know how to use the natural energy around them to promote healing. (Source)
Right now, I know most of you are thinking about those “evangelical healers” that stand up on a stage and heal people in dramatic shows. These people are more than likely not real healers. Real healers are not nearly as showy and, more often than not, they do not know they are healers at all. However, there are some signs one can consider.
Here are 19 signs you are a healer and don’t know it!
1. You have empathic tendencies and often feel emotions or experiences as physical sensations.
2. People consider it soothing to be around you and they rarely get sick.
3. You have had an anxiety, panic, or mood disorder in the past or have one now.
4. It is natural for you to think of solutions to make other people’s lives better even when it is counterproductive to your needs.
5. You are employed as a medical worker, massage therapist, chiropractor, counselor, therapist, veterinarian, or any other job that has to do with healing.
6. There is a history of healers in your family.
7. You experience heightened awareness in public places and can tell if there has been a fight or disagreement.
