At age thirty three I was speaking with one of my trusted life and wellness consultants about what to do with my life and and how to bring all that I had learned and experienced into a solid career path. He asked me if I had read “Anatomy of the Spirit” by well know Medical Intuitive Carolyn Myss. I said “Oh yeah of course”! I was toying with the idea of going to teachers college but he though my skill set and wisdom was much too metaphysical for that ( Deep down I agreed, I knew I had other things to teach). “I think you would make an excellent Medical Intuitive” he said. “Sure” I thought “maybe by the time I’m eighty five years old I’ll develop the skills for that!” I never though I would be able to “do” medical intuition so quickly. One week later I saw an add for the College of Medical Intuition and had an interview with the dean, Dr. Parkin. Half way into our conversation she said “You are naturally doing this already you know”! She thought I was a perfect fit for intuition and I was enrolled that September. Two years later I graduated from the program and began training as a teacher for the College.
But what was it that set me on this path? Did I have a sudden death experience and wake up intuitive? No it was not so sensational. And maybe that is why I make a good teacher because I represent so many people who’ve stumbled upon their intuitive inclinations subtly and gradually. The difference between me and many of you who are reading this is that I fostered and trained my abilities. and guess what we are ALL intuitive!!! Trust me if you have a right brain, you have intuition!
Looking back it was something I was always interested in, even in university I tried to marry kinesiology (the study of human movement and health) and psychology to really understand how humans worked. I studied reports on how jogging affected people with depression, which is a field called psycho-neuro-immunology. The connection of the body and mind was always something I was curious about.
After university I travelled to New Zeland, Australia and Thailand. Guess what the intention of my whole trip was? To strengthen my intuition! A young woman travelling alone must have her spidey senses about her right?! While in Thailand I spent ten days studying Buddhist Vipassana meditation. I learned that the connection to my “Higher Self”, “God”, “Spirit” was a direct one, not through a priest! Imagine that! Then while teaching English in Japan shortly after my travels, a friend took me to the park after our run to show me some sun salutations. This was my first time trying yoga! When I dug deeper I quickly learned of energy base of yoga. Knowledge of the chakras, the whirling energy vortexes at the seven points along the center of the body and the nadis or energy lines filled my awareness. I was amazed at the discoveries of these ancient yogis and how they sensed the body mind connection. Some of my thirst for understanding was quenched and I continued searching for the truth. To be honest I felt totally jipped that I didn’t learn about this in university! How could they leave out this important ancient information? Well as I have discovered, modern medicine is a fairly young medicine that has really only scratched the surface knowledge about our WHOLE health.
I had been drawn to books about “Energy Medicine” and gobbed up their wisdom. I remembered the first time I heard of Reiki. I knew somehow that Reiki was not for me though, there was something else, a different path that I was meant to find. And that path found me over and over again, like I kept tripping over it, it was the world of qigong (Chinese for energy-qi/chi, cultivation-gong). The first time I tried qigong I remember feeling the energy, it felt like I was swimming in a sea of it! It was one of the most blissful feelings, so dance-like and serene, I fell in love. Immersed in the world of energy healing through my qigong and meditation practices became a personal healing quest.
I felt empowered to take my health into my own hands as I was healing from a digestive issue that western medicine knew little about (believe me the best any regular doctor could do was tell me I was depressed- and I had already been through that so I knew something different was happening). I was even doing all the correct diet stuff, everything my Naturopath, Chinese medicine doctor and Ayurvedic doctor where telling me to do. But I KNEW this health issue was a deeper message from my soul. That’s when I met and had my first assessment with a medical intuitive.
She was a graduate of the biggest energy healing school in the US founded by Barbara Ann Brennan. I had read all her books and found them fascinating and really understood what she was talking about because I sensed those things too! She helped me see the big picture, how my health issue was connected to my mental and emotional being and for this I am greatful. It got me going in a healing direction which truly helped me to heal and realize what a Medical Intuitive really does, help people understand and listen to the messages of their soul !
Was I psychic? Yes. Empathic? Yes. Clairvoyant? Yes. Clairsentient? Yes! The first time I realized that I had spiritual guidance, a connection to the collective conciousness or a “Higher Self” was when I began connecting to it through my DREAMS. Stay tuned for more about how I uncovered my intuitive abilities….
