Heroes of Healing
What makes someone a Hero of Healing?
I feel a Hero is someone that is brave enough to put saving/helping others ahead of whatever might come in the way. The people on this list have gone against the “norm” and had to put “what the masses might think” aside to get their message across. They have all faced criticism and nay-sayers but it did not stop them from pursuing their important work because they KNEW they were helping many in the process. I am grateful for their perseverance, continued strength and determination because they have empowered, saved and helped millions of people to discover how to live their best lives.
Why put this list together?
This list is really at the backbone of my beliefs. EVERYONE has the capacity to heal themselves. Whether it be from physical and/or emotional trauma/dis-ease. I feel a KEY to self-healing is finding teachers that resonate with you. People face resistance as they pursue paths of healing because it means breaking what perhaps are YEARS of “bad habits”, “being on Automatic pilot” and lots of time NOT listening to your self-talk or being conscious. Having teachers you can continually learn and grow from helps keep you on the right path even when you feel “stuck” or are facing resistance. The people on this list ARE Heroes of Healing because NOT ONLY are they helping others but they are encouraging others to become the Hero in their own lives.

Thank you everyone who has contributed, commented and given me support through the vision I had of this project! A special thanks to my husband Ray, who worked with my vision and designed the site so it was a reality. The result is wonderful and I hope many people benefit from this joint collaboration! I have decided not to put ads on this page but ask that if you connect with a hero and/or blogger through here you consider donating to the charity “Train for Humanity” or to the blogger whose writing inspired you. I consider the writers on this list heroes as well since their writing inspires others to realize what a gift life truly is. Blogging is not always an easy means to make money and a small donation to buy them a cup of coffee or say “thank you” goes a long way.
I saw a recent article on the Positivity Blog that I feel is very worth mentioning on this project, “The 4 Sneaky Traps of Having Heroes“. As long as you realize that picking a Hero does not mean they are the only person out there to learn from — and that everyone has DIFFERENT people who they resonate with… you will gain many insights from several different heroes. Also keep in mind that just ONE quote from a Hero could give you an “A-Ha” moment — but it doesn’t mean you have to believe or resonate with EVERYTHING they say. These Heroes are all human and just because they have chosen to spread their message to the masses does not mean they are flawless or are not also constantly working to improve their own lives.
I welcome comments and while this project is officially “closed” I will consider taking submissions to add to this list. If you have learned or been inspired by someone already on this list I invite you to share your experiences and lessons learned in comments and I will add that as well. People take away different lessons from the same teachers and hearing what many have learned from the same teachers can give others “A-Ha” moments as well.
Please use the search if you want to learn more about a specific modality of healing ex. EFT, hypnosis… it is an easy way to locate a Hero who is an expert in what you are looking for.
Thank you. Please enjoy this wonderful list of Heroes of Healing!
