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.

Reconstruction of the short and long connections of the hand region in
the living human brain using advanced diffusion tractography developed
by the NatBrainLab ( The connections of the hand
region resemble a ‘poppy flower’ with a green stem representing the long
projection fibres and four red ‘petals’ connecting the precentral cortex to
postcentral and premotor cortices. This network is important for motor
learning and execution of reaching and grasping hand movements (see
chapter 25). (Image courtesy of Dr Marco Catani, originally published in
Catani M, Dell’Acqua F, Vergani F, et al; Short frontal lobe connections of
the human brain. 2012 Cortex 48:273–91.)
