Healers, counselors, and teachers generously give to people. It is a beautiful gift, but some recipients do not invest in their own healing. Consequently, your offering to them has a limited effect. If on the other hand, you heal people that are willing to invest in your offering, it completes the circle and makes a huge difference in their lives.
One technique for effective healing and giving is to match the investment of the person you are giving to. This involves investing with someone rather than investing for him or her. In short, you invest in them to the extent that they invest in themselves.
So offer them some healing and teaching- and watch what they do with it. If they work with it, integrate it, and make adjustments to their life- continue investing in them. If however, they use what you give them as long as they do not have to invest anything, it is a sign they want you to do it for them. They are likely looking to be fed. Better to offer your precious gift and vital resources to someone that will do something with it.
I do not quote Jesus often, but I love, "Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your disease." (Revised Standard Version). It was her faith that made her well. Jesus was a vehicle for people to heal themselves. I submit that he did not go around randomly healing leapers, but rather chose to heal people who were willing to invest in themselves.
So ultimately you have to decide what type of healer or counselor you want to be. Do you want to be a vehicle for people to heal themselves or do you want to do it for them? Do you want to heal and teach people to solve the origination of the disease or do you want to simply heal their current symptoms.
Deciding the type of healer or counselor you are determines the type of clients you heal. People either willing to invest in themselves at the level you are healing them or they are not.
Remember, givers and takers often have karmic relationships with each other. Healers often identify as the giver that heals the other person. Takers see themselves as passively receiving the healing and other people doing it for them.
So be selective of the people you heal, counsel, and teach. I personally choose to teach people as long as they are willing to invest in themselves. Who do you choose to heal?
