A Healing Story



       A physician friend of mine, one of the most heroic people I've ever known, wrote in response to last week's wisdom.  I was touched and thought you might be too.  



     "Yes, isn't that it?! The Lakota traditional healer, Fools Crow, talked about being a 'hollow bone' for the spirits to work through - that healing comes from them, and we are just the conduit. 

     "Once, at a cancer retreat in a remote area, I developed one of the worst migraines of my life and laid there flattened in the lower level, when a lady kept sitting by me doing her knitting.  I remember being annoyed by her presence.  After a while, she quietly asked if I would like to be rid of my headache (!) and when I assented (another requirement), she touched my head and said, 'You think this is where your headache is coming from - your head - but it's really down here (base of my neck).'  She fluffed her hands around lightly in my hair and I thought 'no way is this going to do anything!'

     "Suddenly, boom, the headache was completely gone. She told me she had been in CD treatment and everybody had their meds taken away and they were all sick with headaches and one lady asked her to rub her neck and suddenly the lady's headache was gone and that's when she realized she had this gift. She said it is only for headaches and doesn't know why she has it, but attributes it to powers outside her. She went on to heal them all as they lined up in front of her... I walked upstairs and tried to tell everyone what just happened and they didn't 'get' it. I was just stunned. Ever since then I really believe in those things.  A few weeks after this, she died of metastatic breast cancer."



       Healing abounds.  Its miracle occurs daily in our lives – usually in small ways we hardly notice.  Sometimes, we heal dramatically – as in this story and many others.  Healing often includes a physical cure, but not always. 


       Notice its happening.  Notice, it's happening!

One Heart Healing


       Not long ago, Joanie awoke with a sore throat and asked for a healing.  My usual approach is to open to the loving energy of the universe, inviting it to gather in my heart and flow outward through my hands.


       This morning, however, I'd been fretting about work and was having some trouble focusing.  As I began the healing, a doubt arose.  "What if my heart isn't pure enough and I'm sending 'contaminated' energy?"


       Almost immediately, an answer arrived.  "Let your heart remember its union with the One Heart.  Let the One Heart be the healer."


       Once again, I get the message.  It's not about me, and it's not all up to me.  Relieved in spirit - and relieved of duty - I step aside and let the universe work its magic.

Joy Job


       For many people I see – including, sometimes, the guy in the mirror – an inner judge, a kind of killjoy, drives our doing.  Do more.  Do better.  Do faster.


       As I sat with someone recently, this message arrived:



The joy is

just as

important as

the job.
