Now here is an interesting little intuitive story for you.
It still has me thinking about it on a number of levels, as I’m sure you’ll understand.
A friend of mine is getting married in the summer of next year. For that reason, she recently emailed me photos of her entire bridal party.
One of the photos she sent was of herself and her two best friends from childhood, just standing together in a kitchen with their arms linked, smiling.
Perfectly ordinary picture.
But as I looked at it, I noticed that the girl on the far left stood out to me for some reason, almost as if she had a line drawn around her, or was somehow a bit more…solid or something. I kept coming back to that photo and looking at her, and fleeting bits of impressions began to occur to me.
This girl felt very orange and green to me, which in my personal terminology would make her an energetic, ambitious, healer-type personality. I felt that she had an unusually strong character, a well-developed sense of compassion, and that she wanted to be involved in health care in some way – most likely as a doctor.
I kept hearing the phrase “She’s going away” repeated in my head when I looked at her, and I got the sense she would be traveling to a foreign country to do some sort of philanthropical medical service, such as the Peace Corps or something similar.
I also had the idea that she herself had some medical issue that might have inspired this line of work for her.
These impressions were fairly strong, so when my friend came over for dinner, I just couldn’t help but ask about it.
And to both our surprise, when I shared some of the ideas I had picked up by looking at the picture, they were right on target!
It turned out that the young lady in the photo was currently finishing her training as a nurse, and had just left the country for a two-month mission trip assisting underprivileged children who can’t afford medical care.
And furthermore, this work was inspired by a severe allergy that she had suffered from all her life, and which gave her compassion for people with medical issues.
I pointed out, though, that it wasn’t the word “nurse” I had heard, but “doctor,” and that I doubted this kind and ambitious individual would be satisfied with that level of training.
So when the girl in the picture phoned my friend a couple of days later (knowing nothing of my prediction yet) to announce that she had just applied for medical school, this time NOBODY was surprised.
Except her, when we already knew about it!
What interests me most about this whole incident is not that I picked up on this information, but that it was so current and important to her life at the moment, which seems to explain the sense of urgency I felt when I looked at her photo.
It may be that as she made the decision to take the next step with her training, she needed to hear that someone out there saw and supported it, and that it was the right thing to do. This person feels like a caring and selfless soul to me, and it goes without saying that the world needs more of that sort of thing.
But I’m saying it anyway.
She might be just what the doctor ordered!
