332. A Gift of Healing
Dr. Daniel Houtman
As a young child, he discovered he could sense people’s feelings, especially their pain and sadness. An adult might say to him, ‘I’m feeling good,’ but he somehow knew they were not. Often, he could make family members’ headaches go away through touching or rubbing the pain’s site. What does a child do with that kind of gift?
Dr. Daniel Houtman has been helping people worldwide for over 40 years deal with their health and personal problems. In his book Spiritual Evolution: Examining Blocks, Expand Your Vision and Navigating Your Way to Happiness, Dr. Houtman shares what he believes are the keys to happiness and living your best life. Daniel is leading a global project he calls Just Five Minutes, at noon on October 18, 2016. He invites everyone to pause for just five minutes to think about light and love. “By doing that, we will raise the vibrational frequency of our world.”
How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“As a child, I always wanted to help people. I would say I had the ability or the gift to actually feel pain or sadness in others. If someone said to me, ‘I’m feeling good,’ I could often know they weren’t, because I could feel sadness coming from them. If someone in my family had a headache or pain, I would simply touch or rub the area where the pain was, and the pain would go away.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“I had to go through a kind of personal, spiritual awakening to understand the gift I’d been given. Right from the beginning I knew that I could help people, and my family members knew it too. I just didn’t know what form it was going to take or how to use it as a kid. As I was able to get clearer about the information that was coming from my inner voice, I wanted to find out everything I could about the physical and spiritual world around me.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“The answer to what makes you happy doesn’t lie outside, it lies within yourself. One way to go inside is through meditation. If you consistently go inside, you find the true meaning of your life and why you are here. There is such a happiness and joy that exists—like nothing else in your life—when you find and do what you love. When you find it, it’s what you will follow for the rest of your life.”
