Introduction : A Brief Personal History
As I say to people attending my workshops and my lectures: I am
taking you into the world that exists "behind my eyes." But if I first
tell you about the series of wake^up calls that led to my own perspective,
if I first introduce you to the many different people and
events that over the years directed me toward becoming a medical
intuitive, you may become more aware of the inner guidance at work
in your own life.
1 urnin^ Points
rLverything that has professional, personal, and spiritual value for
me, I have learned through my work as a medical intuitive. As a college
student, however, I was headed in a very different direction.
Overloaded with ambition, I studied journalism, and in my junior
year I decided that I would win the Pulitzer prize before I turned
thirty. The problem with this plan, I discovered while working at my
first newspaper job, was that I lacked the talent required for successful
newspaper reporting.
I quit the paper, but I could not accept that my only dream
career—being a writer—would not come true. Having no backup
dream, I descended into a poisonous, gluey depression, a classic
"dark night of the soul." During the worst months I would sleep late
into the morning, then sit on the Boor ol my home office staring at
half-written magazine articles.
One morning, just as I was coming out oi a deep sleep, still in that
state between wakefulness and sleep. 1 was overwhelmed with the
sensation that 1 had died anil was on!) remembering this lifetime. I
felt grateful that in) lif£_wasjQver W hen I Snail) opened my eyes and
realized I was still verj much alive, nausea overtook me and I spent
the morning vomiting m\ disappointment Exhausted, I returned to
bed to tr\ to evaluate where I had miscalculated m planning my life.
\t that point a memor) ot a homework assignment in a journalism
class exploded into m\ mind.
