This life is not a spiritual journey. This is a human journey. My spirit chose this form to know itself as divine. But in answer to my friend’s question, it seems I began calling it a spiritual journey in 1997 when I opened my private health care practice. Full Circle Family Health. The physical manifestation of a dream.
I have dreamt every significant thing in my life. My beloved husband. My enlightened children. All my creations. Then perceiving the music, the vibration, the energy, I dance my dreams into reality. And as a holistic family nurse practitioner, I dance healing with my patients.
After nine years of gathering health care experience as an employee, I prayed to be shown a way to fulfill my soul purpose. I had a dream…to start my own holistic health care practice. I dreamt of my patients walking down a garden path into a healing home, where I had the space to practice truly integrated medicine and enough time to spend with my precious family, animals, and garden—dancing my dream.
Soon after Full Circle Family Health became a reality, the universe sent me the most challenging patients. Out of necessity and a great desire to know more, I became an expert in neuro-immune-endocrinology, a specialty which focuses on the bio-chemical communication network of the human body. It’s always about proper communication, isn’t it?
Well, I opened myself to receive whatever the universe might offer. The sickest most Hormonally Challenged patients came from all over California for my care. As my expertise grew, patients came from across the United States and then from Europe and South America. Word of mouth referrals kept me very busy.
Then I began getting referrals from energy healers. One in particular referred her clients for hormonal support. I was happy to comply. And very curious. This energy healer sent her clients to me with such precise descriptions of what was energetically going on in their bodies that I was able to scientifically assess and diagnose their dis-eases. Her clients got better—physically and energetically—and soon she became my patient.
Annette was very open to everything I could teach her about her body. She was going through menopause and needed hormonal support. I wanted to learn about her work. So we bartered.
My first session with Annette found me sitting across from her in a lotus position, eyes closed, hands resting in the “ok” position on my knees. She began to laugh. “You don’t remember who you are.”
“What do you mean? Am I not doing it right?”
“This is not your way. Go run with that black dog of yours.” How did she know about Ida? “And when she stops, follow her lead and sit down with her. See what comes.”
So I did. I was an avid runner and enjoyed racing across the trails with my dog. I rarely stopped to smell the roses let alone sit down. But I followed Annette’s advice. When Ida jumped up onto a huge boulder and sat down to look at me, I climbed up to sit by her, closed my eyes, took a deep breath and…a purple tear dropped into my mind’s eye, filled my head, spilled into every aspect of my being…and the answer to a problem came very clearly to me. Wow!
Soon I was meditating in my way. While I ran with my dog, rode my horse, danced in the garden…always the purple tear drop came and with it answers. I began to remember who I am.
