Sequoyah Trueblood, of the Cherokee and Chocktaw traditions, express similar perspectives to what previous healers in this series have shared — the process of healing is one of letting the divine flow through you and that the distance between healer and healee is irrelevant. He also shares that pain and suffering are an important teacher for an individual and that the healer’s role is to help the individual understand and address the root cause of that pain and suffering. His message ultimately echoes the perspective that when we are in alignment with the Divine we can both be healers and be healed.
