I have found my calling in life. My calling is to be a mental health therapist and… a folk healer. My fiancé, when she comes to the States; will be opening a massage therapy business and I’ll be offering my services as a folk healer. Kind of like an albularyo ( A Philippine folk healer ) or a curandero.
As a folk healer, I’d be offering help in spiritual healing and bodily healing through herbs, massage, vitamins and praying over the sick. I won’t charge fees, though I’ll accept donations. I’d also offer help as a deliverance ministry and paranormal investigations, House blessings and House cleansings.
I draw the line at magic and fortune telling. In fact: part of my services would be to combat magic and demonic activity. Anything I can’t handle as a layman, I’ll refer the client to a priest or a doctor.
As a practicing Catholic, I’m hoping this would be an acceptable path. I was wondering what you all thought about this.
