I'm not really sure why this never occurred to me before, or why I never truly comprehended the magnitude of this power, but better late than never, right?
Four Ways Having the Power to Heal Could Change my Life:
- I would be healthy again (I'm not even sure how amazing that could feel)!
- I would regain my sense of adventure. Since I would no longer fear getting hurt permanently doing cool things like skydiving, mountain climbing, adventure running or even trapeze-ing (I should have done so much better at that!!), I would go for the gusto in all of my life endeavours!
- I would be able to really help others. Imagine visiting the ICU in any hospital and being able to help very single person there - That would be INCREDIBLE! Or imagine heading out to St. Jude's Children's Hospital to do the same! The good that could be done, the help that could be shared is absolutely immeasurable.
- I would have a green thumb. I would be able to heal the plants in my yard - oh! It would be so beautiful!
As with any super power, the power to heal carries with it a great responsibility. I worry that I would require a sidekick, wise adviser or some other grounded individual to remind me of this fact. It would be very easy to take my power and just live out all of my wildest dreams, or, on the other hand, become overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the number of people who need to be healed. I hope that I could find someone to give me guidance and to help me strike the right balance between helping the world and having a fulfilled life.
