I am taking an online course in medical intuition right now and it really emphasizes opening up to extrasensory perception. We all know our five senses and the varied information that our five senses provides us in the way of feedback but it talks about how important our intuition is in providing us information. I am more open to intuition and interesting experiences showing up in my world than, for instance, my father who is a retired doctor might be. I believe the environment around us is always talking to us and we just have to listen and tune into it on some level to experience its “richness.”
I will start by relaying that I attended a memorial of one of my former patients that died near the end of September of this year. This was a dear patient of mine that I had lost track of for a number of years; she resurfaced some fifteen years later and told me that she had pancreatic cancer. Well this is the worst cancer to get. I gave her all the information that I had and referred her to my colleague that specializes in cancer. I worked with her in some sessions to deal with the emotional heaviness of such a diagnosis. At the end of August she emailed me to tell me that she was going on her dream trip to Europe and that she would be back in three weeks. I sent her an email about the time when she was supposed to return. Sadly, her brother called me in October to tell me that she had passed away after she had come back from her trip.
I was quite shocked and shed some tears that she had died and lived such a short life and that she was now gone. Her brother told me that there was going to be a memorial and that he would let me know when it was. He emailed me shortly thereafter and I went to the memorial about three weeks ago. I went by myself and arrived a little early. I had been talking to her spirit that day and was happy to be there to honor her spirit. The memorial was held at a community center. I had to use the bathroom before the ceremony started. When I went to wash my hands, I pressed on the soap dispenser and it shot out at me. I pressed it again and it shot across the room. I felt my irritability with the soap dispesnser be quickly replaced with laughter. In that moment, I knew my former patient was paying me a little visitation. She was a joker and very light hearted. I believe she was relaying to me that she was okay on the other side. I laughed and thanked her for showing up. I left the bathroom and thanked her family for honoring her and thanked some of the people that showed up to appreciate her life.
I had another interesting experience when I went to Portland last weekend for a course. When I left Calgary on my flight, it was delayed. I had a tight connection in Seattle to make. Well I barely made my connection which was good, but my luggage didn’t make the flight. When I got to Portland and went to claim my baggage it did not come. Instead of getting angry and impatient about my lost luggage, I talked to Alaskan Airlines and they assured me that my baggage would make the next flight and would be only an hour late. The airlines gave me a food voucher for dinner; I got some nutritious takeout and waited at the baggage claims for the next hour. When my luggage came, I looked for a courtesy phone to call for a hotel shuttle. Unfortunately, the courtesy phone did not have my hotel listed and I was unsure of how to call them as I did not have a cell phone with me.
An angel of a man happened to strike up a conversation with me at the very time that I appeared a little confused as to what I should do next. He asked me if I needed to borrow his phone and I said yes, that would be amazing. Then he said give me the number and I will call the hotel and ask for a shuttle. I do not know why he was so helpful to me but it was late and I was just grateful for his help. He proceeded to reach the hotel by phone and was told that a shuttle would not arrive for at least another 40 minutes. He said I would be happy to take you to your hotel. My wife is picking me up and there is room in the car. My intuition registered that this was a good guy and an angel who was agreeing to help me out. So I accepted the ride. He said the hotel was on the way and I would be there in 20 minutes. This is an example of being open to what shows up in your world. If you believe the universe is a friendly place and you have an open mind, you might be amazed at all the blessings that show up for you. I had an amazing weekend course in Portland and the whole weekend I felt like I was in flow and was looked after.
