Proposition 8 in a Medical Intuition Session

Some time ago we had a client come to us with a painful shoulder. He knew exactly how he hurt it. He didn’t expect us to play doctor or give him a medical diagnosis. But, having had several effective sessions with us before, he wondered if there was a psychological or spiritual component to his getting hurt since the incident seemed to be part of a repeating pattern.

Paul and I both took a look psychically and I answered his concerns first. “It seems like it’s hard for you to receive the help you need in your life.” Then Paul jumped in “No, it’s worse! It’s like something from outside yourself is impeding you from getting the help you need!” We were all quiet for a minute, none of us knowing what that intuition could mean and Paul dropped into a deeply meditative state. When he came back out he said “I don’t know why I’m supposed to ask you this but I’m wondering how this proposition that’s coming up for a vote (Proposition 8) is affecting you.” For those of you outside of California, if this proposition passed it would take away our client’s right to legitimize his 25 year old gay partnership through marriage.

The pain in our client’s face was immediate and a deep grief was palpable in the room. “This is it” he said. He talked about the “chip on his shoulder” he felt he always carried for being different and how the struggle for equal rights was a terrible cross to bear especially with the vicious advertising campaign being waged across the state designed to take away those hard-won rights once again. He didn’t want to ask for help again. He didn’t want to have to beg his friends to go to the polls and vote. He didn’t want to feel the pain and humiliation of coming out in public—again—and to look to the outside world to provide him with a feeling of legitimacy through fighting this proposition. He didn’t dare even think about it...but it was there and it was getting in his way and causing physical pain.

We counseled and talked for some time. While we, of course, couldn’t solve the entire problem of gay rights and personal legitimacy in a single counseling session, our client left feeling satisfied that he knew how he wanted to handle this situation and ended the session by asking us to vote, which we are happy to do.

Intuitive health consultations are not a substitute for medical diagnosis and we can’t use our intuitive abilities to help people avoid appropriate medical care. But, as shown above, it is an extremely effective tool for accessing mind/body/spirit connections that the medical system doesn’t address. It is our experience that the physical body acts as a reflection of a person's emotional state of being, mental beliefs and spiritual orientation. By understanding the interconnection of mind, body and spirit it is easier to unravel long-standing health issues. We can then use a variety of energy healing and spiritual counseling techniques to gently yet powerfully help you shift these detrimental patterns. That work supports healing on every level.

But, this said, individual work only takes people so far when there's a need to challenge the status quo in our society as a whole. Please get out and vote! There's a lot at stake in this election and it means far more to your friends and neighbors than you could ever know.
