Why No One Can Heal You

Antonia Hagens

Antonia Hagens

No one can heal you.

That’s a pretty bold statement to make.
But, it’s the truth. No one can heal you.
Healing happens between you and the
Universe, or God, or Allah or whichever
name you chose to give the Life Source
that is present in every one of us.

We are all the same and we all search for the same thing – to
feel whole and complete and at peace.

I have been working with energy since I was 12 years old
(as I’m sure many of you have too). I’ve assisted at exorcisms,
laying on of hands, prayer healings and many more. I’ve
connected to other beings, received messages and helped
many to heal.

As an adult I searched for other ways to heal
myself, my family, my friends and anyone that
was drawn to me. I believe in the power of food
to heal the body so I became a nutritionist.
Like a chiropractor or osteopath I believe in
the body’s ability to heal and release physical
pain so I became a Neurostructural Integration
Technique (NST) Practitioner. I know that everything
is connected and that everything is energy so I
then went back to my roots of energy healing.
I love learning and exploring so I became certified
in different energy healing modalities – Reiki,
Chi Gong, Theta Healing, Source Connection,
Universalis Healing, many more and then
finally, Reconnective Healing.

I have my favourites and when someone comes
to me for healing assistance I check in with my
Self and their Higher Self and ask to be shown
what is for their highest good.

A question that I always seem to get asked is,
“What have you healed?” and “”What experience
do you have in healing ______.”

In response I would then run down a list of my credentials,
and list off all the dis-ease – physical, mental and
emotional that I had been honoured to assist with.

That’s all changed. Today when someone is referred to
see me and they ask, “Can you heal _____?” My answer
is “No, I do not heal you nor does anyone else.”

Healing happens between you and Source, Life, God
or the name that you chose to give to All That Is.
Those of us that are called “healers” are facilitators or
a bridge to assist others to connect to that Essence
of Healing that we call Life/Love/Peace/God/The Universe.

That’s all any healer can do. Healing is not something that
the healer can produce or is responsible for. We are
an instrument – albeit a powerful one. We do not “heal”
anyone. But we sure have the honour and the pleasure
of seeing many miracles take place before us!!!!!

And, in healing others we too heal ourselves.


PS – I do love Reconnective Healing and I recommend it

    I think you’re perfectly right. Must take the awkward pressure off of yourself as well.
    Healing is usually in accordance with quite a few levels; naive to expect to do everything yourself, or that one thing or person can do it. Yet sometimes just one piece of the puzzle is missing; and voila,a hero is born!

    Keep your “magic” handy, Antonia, and we’ll all sparkle a little brighter. We are in this together, aren’t we? πŸ˜‰

  • Paula June 30, 2010, 8:05 PM

    I absolutely agree. No one can heal you. An allopathic physician can set your bones or remove cancerous tumors, and a Reconnective Healing Practitioner can facilitate the presence of the Reconnective Frequencies(and on and on for any healing modality), however, it is the patient/client that makes the decision to accept or reject the opportunity to allow themselves to heal.

  • Lisa June 30, 2010, 8:28 PM


    What is a reconnective session like? What is involved and how is it different that Reiki, Universalis etc?

    How do I find a practitioner in my area?



  • Iris June 30, 2010, 8:46 PM

    I agree with you Antonia. The ‘healing’ comes from Universal Consciousness and knows what is needed.Hands that heal are guided by a deep connection to the frequencies of healing. What we can do is be loving witnesses to each other and thus enable rather than disable the healing journey.To truly be present and hear another, free of judgment, is both a gift and a blessing. To do that we are asked to open our hearts to the divine song of Spirit.

  • Antonia Hagens June 30, 2010, 9:59 PM

    Hi beautiful Diane,

    Yes we are in this together all the way!
    It also takes the pressure off of doctors – allopathic and/or alternative. πŸ™‚

  • Antonia Hagens June 30, 2010, 10:01 PM

    Exactly Paula! πŸ™‚

  • Antonia Hagens June 30, 2010, 10:08 PM

    Hi beautiful Lisa,
    You can search for a Reconnective Healing practitioner by going to
    Look over those who are listed and see who your heart draws to you. It may not necessarily
    be the person closest to you. As far as what a Reconnective session is like – each one is different.
    My experience of it for myself and for those who I’ve worked with is that it is a broader band of
    Here’s one of my recent interviews with Dr. Eric Pearl:


  • Val June 30, 2010, 10:15 PM

    I love how you said that healers “a bridge to assist others to connect to that Essence of Healing”. That is so much more visual/meaningful than just saying a facilitator. It always feels like touching something really special when connecting with someone’s energy field during a healing session- it leaves me in awe. It’s a beautiful thing when we participate and don’t try to control it, even when so hoping for a specific outcome and letting it go for a higher purpose.

    Thanks for sharing. Val

  • Marissa June 30, 2010, 10:49 PM

    So, I have considered becoming one who assist others in their own healings. Since you have studied so many different and all interesting methodologies, which (ones) in your opinion helps you to help others the most?

  • Antonia Hagens June 30, 2010, 11:09 PM

    Hi beautiful Marissa,
    First I would say that if you look in your life you will see that you are already assisting others in their own healing.
    Then I would say go within. As you heal yourself you vibrate out to all those around you.
    I find that the most important component is to first go within. Everything else will follow from that.
    Every healing modality has it’s place. What I am most drawn to now is simplicity and ease of
    use and teaching and for that I do like Reconnective Healing – anyone can learn it in a weekend or less.

    For nutrition I follow my own body’s voice. I eat a variety of everything – raw, cooked, grains, meat, vegetable, eggs, etc.
    I’ve been through many stages of raw vs cooked, vegetarian vs meat diet, fasting, cleansing, etc.
    Once again simplicity wins. Eat whole foods, eat what comes from nature – whether that be animal or
    plant life (to me they are the same – there is as much Universal energy within a cucumber
    as in a chicken). It comes down to what does your body need today?

  • Elizabeth June 30, 2010, 11:10 PM

    Your article was lovely and true, Antonia – I have SO much admiration for you and your beautiful spirit and your work. Here’s the thing, from the perspective of a sicko(!): Since I got the cancer diagnosis (which felt like being cursed!) I have been with so many practitioners that I have actually lost count, but they’ve included a Reconnective healer, Matrix Energetics practitioners, EFT practitioners, a Qi Gong master, and a natural (born) healer, among others. I’ve been told again and again that “the energy is beautiful!” and that practitioners love working with it – which is a joy to hear, certainly. I’ve been wide open to whatever would happen, every time. I have followed the special diets, done thousands of hours of practice and meditation. Yet the lesions have still continued to spread on my face, the pain has still increased. It IS up to me and the Universe, as you said, and certainly none of the kind, good healers I’ve gone to have made any guarantees. But without real help and support, it is pretty lonely and scary. I want with all my heart to heal – I am not rejecting healing. I just don’t know how yet.

  • Dennis aka DenRA June 30, 2010, 11:21 PM

    I agree with energy healing and feel it to be the wave of the future in healing.I believe healing is a ongoing condition of good eating habits and an inner connection to spirit and love.Balance and regeneration and manifestation and flow of thought to heal the body.Thank you very much! Be blessed,Peace DenRA

  • Antonia Hagens June 30, 2010, 11:24 PM

    Gorgeous Elizabeth,
    The road to healing one-self often includes many others and that’s
    a beautiful part of the journey. Can you embrace cancer as a whole
    part of you? Can you see the gift of where it has lead you to search?
    If we believe that we are ONE then cancer can not be excluded from
    that. That also means that cancer is part of each and everyone on
    this planet – part of you and also part of me.
    Much is being done to bring up fear of cancer.

    Here is a message for you:
    Beautiful Elizabeth do you know that you are love and
    perfect just the way you are? I can feel your beautiful
    heart from across the distance. The healing you seek is already
    within you. Little Elizabeth wants to be let out to play. There is
    nothing you have to fix. You are perfect and beautiful.

  • Shirley July 1, 2010, 3:16 AM

    The reality is I can’t heal another soul; doing healing work just helps to
    uncover the illusion of my ego which thinks it can. It is quite a humbling

  • Jutta July 1, 2010, 6:19 AM

    Hi Elisabeth,
    honour your wish to accept yourself as whole and perfect and loved. At the moment you are still looking at the outside. It is and always will be YOUR body, your physical expression or your energy and soul that ‘heals’. I prefer the word “balance”. For example if you break a bone you can pay a specialist thousands of dollars – but it is your body with it’s own innate healing ability that ‘heals’, brings it back to its natural state.
    You will come back into your natural balance of wellbeing. Maybe ask for a moment ‘What does this serve me at the moment?’ and ‘Why do i want not to heal?’. It is as so often just a matter of perception. If somewhere deep down you do not want to accept a ‘whole you’ nothing will work. Do you really want it to work? I see your biggest challenge there at the moment.
    Be grateful for what you do have. Focusing on the disease gives it power and you end up once again in the victim mode. WE are all creators of our health! It takes courage to do so and to accept the ‘feeling of power’ that comes with it. That can be scary, very scary sometimes even more than facing death.
    Who are we to ‘heal ourselves’? Whoo, are we that big, strong, powerful??
    If we want to be part of the New World and Paradigm and be creators we first want to be sure about that and get those little tests to see if we’re up to it and if we really mean it, want it and know that we deserve it. We ‘just’ forgot we can.
    Health, Wellbeing, Fun and Joy are our natural rights. Look into nature – become part of it and recognise your unique part in the world. What you do for yourself you do for all of us for the whole Universe!!! You are a creator and you are part of creation! Believe in yourself, the Universe and Love – i do believe in you!
    With Peace and Love for all there is

  • Janet Breitmaier July 1, 2010, 6:28 AM

    Very Interesting. I know that people are responsible for their own healing if they choose to heal. Sometimes it is a matter of choosing wellness and happiness and choosing healing despite what is going on around you.

  • Marilyn July 1, 2010, 10:12 AM

    I believe you said it perfectly. The perfect divine universe (God/Us) does all the work, which includes the bodies intuitive knowledge of how to repair a cut, heal a bone back together, etc. I am so very grateful for the wondrous world we live in.

    I think that many people have ‘blocks’ to the healing energies … and many times don’t realize that they are there. I am trying to get to the issues (known and unknown) that have caused feelings of unworthiness, sadness, fear, etc (again some known, some unknown) to remove whatever is withing that is keeping me from total recovery from a recent stroke. I am so blessed that it was very minor and I only have some vision loss. But I KNOW that my physical brain can adapt, or even completely regenerate. The body and God are so amazing. But I must be harboring something in my subconscious that is preventing this. Or perhaps there is a lesson I must learn first. But I would like to know what that is so I could move on! πŸ™‚ Light, love, and blessings to you for your generous heart.

  • Shar July 1, 2010, 3:21 PM

    WOW Antonia, yet another DEEP WISDOM share, Namaste and THANK YOU! Love your BEAUTIFUL heart-felt responses to those who commented or had questions on your healing insight of truth. L-O-V-E YOU! Keep sharing your love & light, Hugs, xo S

  • jay July 1, 2010, 5:04 PM

    Please consider the repeated internal inconsistency in your last paragraph you self refer / name as being a “healer”,in the next breath you say you heal no one–it can’t be done, and you close by yet again, addressing yourself as a healer–If you don’t like the word facilitator- devoid of warmth? coin a different one, but try to stop giving double messages. Can you see how you answered Elizabeths’ question by giving her platitudes? She’s crying out in pain & frustration about the progress of her cancer , lesions etc & told to she’s tried EVERY spiritual avenue, and what now? whats’ leftfor me? and you tell her that things are just as they should be & that she’s beautiful, & loved etc etc etc ? And the is intended to be a “healing ” message?

  • Effie Siggins July 1, 2010, 5:52 PM

    I couldn’t agree more with what you have written! In order for healing to take place, I sincerely believe that a metaphysical transformation must accompany the manifestation of a physical healing for anyone. Thanks, Antonia!!

  • Sophia July 1, 2010, 7:36 PM

    Dear Antonia what took you so long to understand this basic step?

  • Nina July 1, 2010, 7:59 PM


    Hi Antonia,

    Although I too have wandered down many
    intriguing avenues of healing, … I have always
    intrinsically believed that healing, like learning,
    is an inward journey… (Or to quote Physicist
    Amit Goswami’s wife, a lovely Psychologist
    whose name escapes me…) …”it’s an inside job”

    … A collaboration if you will, between you and
    that which guides your belief structure… With
    “Belief”, being key… And, that the most anyone
    or anything can do for you is be a catalyst in helping
    to discern this for yourself… Actually, I don’t even
    seem to be resonating with the word healing or
    healers anymore, …but rather being drawn more
    towards the vibration of “wellness”…

    Have fun at the Reconnection… Out of all the
    modalities, Dr. Pearl still resonates most with
    me… Not just for his gifts, (…which he too is the
    first to tell you is not being done by him but
    through him…)… But for his great and irreverent
    sense of humour… especially with those who may
    tend to take some of this far too seriously….

    Cheers for now.


  • Adina Smolcic July 1, 2010, 10:00 PM

    Awesome Antonia,
    In my personal experience the only way I have ever healed anything, physical, mental or emotional is by accepting it as a part of the experience I have created for myself and then surrendering it to healing life force without expectation or judgement of “how” healing is to occur. So I totally agree with you. Each being, if they choose to believe it or not is perfect whole and complete as they are and most certainly can heal.
    Light and Love

  • Antonia Hagens July 1, 2010, 10:41 PM

    Hi beautiful Sophia,
    It didn’t take me long to understanding this basic step of healing. It is however a belief held by most who are in the healing arts be it allopathic, alternative, holistic, spiritual or which ever other name we wish to call it. It is also a belief held by most people that “something” or “someone” will cure them. It is a very old belief that humanity has carried. I an way it is part of the hope that keeps people searching on their journey that will lead them and us further into ourselves, our hearts and the power of who we really are.

  • Elizabeth July 1, 2010, 10:46 PM

    Dear Antonia, Jutta, and Jay,
    How can I thank you for your tremendously compassionate messages? You each in different ways made me feel less alone with this, and I can’t tell you how huge that is. In this transition time when we are developing a new approach to healing, it’s what Spanish poet Antonio Machado wrote: “Pathwalker, there is no path. You must make the path as you walk.” As I am sure others have experienced, I have almost no support from friends and family on this path – most refuse to read the science (which is their right, of course) – so when healers say, well, it didn’t work so you must not want to heal, it feels like a double-whammy. I had the misfortune to have had vibrant health up until the cancer arrived, so I was grossly unprepared! And as you said, Antonia, there is such tremendous fear around the label itself. But some time ago I realized that there was no reason to shut out happiness, joy, fun and gratitude. They’re still going strong, ‘though sometimes when the pain is acute I can’t get there and have to accept that, as well. I will keep going, though. Thank you all for your great care and beautiful messages.

  • Antonia Hagens July 1, 2010, 10:46 PM

    Hi beautiful Nina,
    Yes I completely agree with you about Dr. Pearl. And yes, humour is an important part of who
    we are. Many seem to equate spirituality with seriousness – if they only knew how much the
    masters laughed – and are still laughing!! πŸ™‚

  • Nina July 2, 2010, 7:26 PM

    ….NEGLECTED TO MENTION, and forgive me if already
    stated … but strongly feel it needs to be reiterated…
    Even given all the wondrous, astonishingly miraculous
    cures, disciplines, protocols, theories, etc, etc, etc, …
    Be it in allopathic medicine, alternative, integrative,
    vibrational, spiritual and so on… Presently, at some
    level, we don’t…and perhaps simply can’t fully know
    how or why ?… To think otherwise feels rather arrogant…

    Many may have significant pieces of the puzzle, but no
    one has the entire picture …let alone answers. To claim
    so, feels really irresponsible and just plain cruel to the vast
    portion of the world that is really hurting… only to be left
    feeling even more inadequate and isolated by the many
    intricacies and conflicting paradigms…

    One only has to feel the helplessness of a tiny animal in pain…
    What inner work, connection or release did they fail to reach?

  • Antonia Hagens July 2, 2010, 9:51 PM

    Beautiful Elizabeth,

    You are indeed making your path. We are all here to grow. Your soul and my soul have agreed to assist each other.
    By connecting I get to remind you that you are not alone and that you are a powerful being. For me your gift
    has been a reminder that I too have my “cancer” to deal with in my life except for me it lies in the area of finances.
    The cancer you are experiencing is not just for you but also for those who you come in contact with.
    We all have our different experiences of dis-ease. For some it is called cancer, for others is it a difficult relationship,
    for others it is financial fears and for many it is a feeling of being alone and unimportant.

    Vibrationally it is all the same. There is no difference between any of these experiences that we have labelled “unwanted’ or “bad”
    It is a call from the soul for growth and when one of us grows we all grow.

    Experiencing cancer does not mean that you are not willing to heal yourself it just means that there is still something
    that it is serving – for you or for others in your life. When the cancer is no longer needed it will be gone. Just as for
    me when financial stress no longer serves a purpose then it too will be gone. In the meantime, can we both enjoy the
    experience without resisting? Can we not make it mean something about us and our experience? Can we open
    ever more to the love and magnificence that we are? Can we lead and create a new world where the old paradigm
    of control, not enough and fear is no longer serves a purpose? Can we live love by example and let our light shine
    so that we are creating daily the world we chose to live in?

  • john sunde July 3, 2010, 9:27 PM

    This is such a wonderful forum for me , I am grateful to be in this network.Also I like the health/wellness philosophies that teach we live move and have our beings in a completely lawfull universe that seeks to promote our happiness as the prime purpose of life. Any joy not being expressed is a cry for it and has a definate cause in order to have this effect. Many of lifes challenges for me have been to discover/ deal with the causative factors that led me down those rabbit holes.The use of inductive or deductive reasoning but especially deductive recently has been invaluable lately. The 30 day effortless prosperity is a good starter and finisher for me and I wholeheartedly support the lessons in it.All my love to Antonia and friends. John
