11. The Healer

Healing is a complex process. It usually involves many small doses of care and reparation administered over time. The video above offers 100 ways to Show Children you Care. In essence, every one of these can be a part of emotional healing.

The Healer is the part of us that learns to listen with an ear to positive change. Have you ever helped someone solve a problem by listening to their struggle and providing feedback? This was likely an expression of your Healer.

Children have a natural internal healer that gets expressed in play when they act out being a medical caregiver and healing another child. Children can learn how to express their Healer in many ways. Read “Know Thyself: a Kid’s Guide to the Archetypes” for more on The Healer.
