Meet Cara Johnson of Cara Johnson Healing in Encinitas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cara Johnson.

Cara, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My path as a healer truly began when I was a very young girl and realized I was clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient (able to see, hear and feel what most couldn’t) and that I could heal people by laying my hands on them and focusing my energy/intention. This path was crystallized when I was in my 20’s and got certified as a massage therapist and then my path was super-sized in my 30’s when I moved to Cusco, Peru and got certified as Reiki Master.

My first year as a Reiki Master, I worked on anything and anyone who wouldn’t crawl away from me! In my second year, I focused my practice on cancer patients as I was working thru a hospital that allowed it’s patients to receive this type of healing as part of their treatment. Since those early years, my practice and my abilities have grown exponentially and I now refer to myself (more accurately) as an empathic, intuitive healer as I integrate all my natural abilities into my practice.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My path to my private practice as an empathic, intuitive healer was not easy. For many years I denied who I was and how I was as I wanted desperately to be “normal” and seeing, hearing and feeling what most couldn’t make me feel like an alien.

But denying myself for years took a toll on me and by my early 30’s I was plagued with emotional turmoil and heartache. It was then that a profound trip to Nepal followed by an even more profound trip to Peru changed the direction of my life. I finally realized the only path forward was to let go of fear and embrace who I was. Some say it takes courage to be your true self. I realized it took love in the form of acceptance. I’ve never looked back.

Another challenge I overcame without even realizing at the time it was a challenge to overcome, was finding a gifted/inspired/experienced Reiki teacher with an exceptionally high level of integrity, knowledge and expectation of his students. I didn’t have to seek this person out. A dear mutual friend introduced us. It was very synchronistic. And of course, finding the right teacher can change everything. I liken it to the difference of being taught Buddhism by the Dalai Lama vs a University Professor.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Cara Johnson Healing – what should we know?
As I have shared, I am an empathic, intuitive energy healer. Broken down that just means I feel into your physical and emotional body, I see things you cannot and I help transform discord and/or disease using channeled energy. I have private studios in both Temecula and Encinitas for in-person sessions. I also do Facetime or Skype video sessions as well as online events/classes. This Fall I will begin offering online (via Facebook Live) weekly guided meditation classes and next year I will begin offering spiritual retreats starting with a trip to Peru.

I think the greatest compliment I receive from my clients is that I am “the real deal.” I see this as a reflection of my integrity, authenticity, abilities and true commitment to helping all those who come to me with answers, insight, wisdom, healing and – of course – love. As my teacher once told me – being a healer isn’t something you “do” – it is who you are.

When you work with me:
– You’ll feel like we’ve known each other for years
– You’ll marvel at how much can happen in 60 minutes
– You’ll want to have access to a recording app on your smartphone to capture all the insight that comes thru

In addition to my work with individuals and groups, I also work to help other healers open up to their true nature and gifts so they, too, can shine their light on others.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
There have been many incredible people in my life who have contributed in very significant ways to my path as a healer. That said, there are 4 in particular who stand out – my mother, my father, my Reiki teacher and my dear friend from Peru who opened my eyes to another path forward and who introduced me to my Reiki teacher.

From the moment I came into the world, my parents have been spiritual seekers. Their devotion to deeper wisdom and their connection to a higher path greatly inspired and influenced me from a very young age. They were/continue to be my greatest teachers on the power of unconditional love to transform.

My dear friend from Peru took me by the hand and helped me open up to my most authentic self. She then held onto me often seeing more in me than I saw in myself and was the first to introduce me to Reiki and then to my Reiki teacher. There is a clear delineation in my life to how I was before I met her and how I was after.

And my Reiki teacher humbled me to my core with his unflinching/uncompromising devotion to and gifts as a Reiki healer. He was a man destined to teach this modality and he put me to task to give the same level of devotion. The greatest compliment I ever received was when – a few years into my path as a Reiki Master – he said I was one of his best students. I will forever be indebted for the doors he opened within me.
