I recently went to have a palm reading by a well-known local psychic. She told me that I carried the ‘stigmata of healer’ and needed to focus my energy on learning more more about that. She said in 25 years she had only had the opportunity to read for 3 other people that carried that mark, so it was important to follow up on this, since my guides obviously thought I was ready to learn about it (by leading me to a reading). I know what many think about psychics, so I just want to say that she didn’t say I needed any follow-up readings (or even offer another future reading) and she didn’t offer to help me with the learning process.
She showed me the lines and I looked it up online and in some books… sure enough that is supposedly what it is.
I’m 40 years old already, so I don’t see how I could end up being a healer but maybe I’m supposed to learn about healing… and I’m sure this is probably spiritual healing, not physical.
Are there any healers that could suggest books, meetings, or what direction I should go with this?
How horrible that someone came in and gave you two thumbs-down. 🙁 I hate when people do that.
They did not come from me and I really appreciate the information that you’ve given!

I have lived the greater part of a century and I still learn of the craft of healing. Had I begun my studies as young as you I do not know just where I might be in my abilities–yes 40 is a young’un to me. I was never marked to be a healer or have strong thoughts on the subject.
If you know nothing of the craft you should begin with its sister craft of working with Herbs and the use of the voice as a healing tool. [The next sentence will truly put me in my age] One of the books I have read again and again, as well as use to heal or help is Stalking the Healthful Herbs by Euell Gibbons. My copy was printed in 1966, but I believe you can find it somewhere on the net as I’ve seen copies fo sale up into the 80s.
The voice is for your own study. Start by watching carefully and Journaling how your tones, elocution, and volume affect others. This talent can be a cardinal part of healing.
Now, I did find that animals responded to me better than humans, which I was happy with. I found this out when a dog was hit by a car near my home and I was able to calm and handle him, when others couldn’t. I also helped at the vets as she seemed to recognize the dog needed me as she xrayed and set his broken leg.
