Yesterday was my day off and the farthest thing from my mind was “doing the work of Healing Touch.” I enjoyed a lovely hand reflexology treatment, went to the chiropractor with my daughter, had lunch and went to yoga with a girlfriend.Then around 3:00 pm, as I followed my guidance to stop by a restaurant and pick up my daughter’s pay check, I was not aware that spirit was leading me to “do the work.” When I entered the Huron House Restaurant the owner was on the phone with 911 because a patron was in cardiac distress. I asked if I could help and he said, “Yes, go to the back of the restaurant”. The woman in distress was sitting up but appeared disoriented. I asked for permission from her daughterto do energy healing and proceeded to hold her shoulders, comfort her with words, work up and down her spine and then hold the front of her forehead and back of her neck. I continued to do Healing Touch as we waited for the emergency squad to arrive but I became acutely aware of the distress the daughter and sister were in. I was also aware that their stress increased once the paramedics arrived. I encouraged them to breathe deeply and stay calm and just allowed them to talk.
