One thing about thinking of yourself as a healer and being aware of your profound ability to make a difference in every moment is that interesting healing situations crop up everywhere!
Yesterday we drove home in a torrential downpour from touring the town's brand new high school. Right away, on the south edge of town, we noticed a long, thin, dark funnel cloud pulling out of the clouds ahead of us and running mostly parallel to the ground, with the wispy end angling downward slightly. We watched it in fascination as we drove right under it. By the time we reached the library, the town's tornado siren was wailing.
I grew up in the midwest and remember my parents alertly monitoring such potential twisters. Most of the time, they never came near us. But in the 8-10 mins of our trip from the high school, the end had significantly widened and was now pointing down maybe 30 degrees off of vertical. Eek! Would it get bigger? Would it reach for the earth? We debated, watched, checked weather.com for news, and marveled that a long funnel cloud like that could hold its shape so steadily for so long.
Then, I realized the clouds were actually slowly drifting towards us. Well, this was fascinating and educational and all, but what a pain if it touched down in town and messed up property!
"Do you think Reconnective Healing would do anything for it?" I asked my son, who is also a Reconnective Healing practitioner.
"I don't know," was his excellent answer.
"Well, if Reconnective Healing brings out the highest potential for all in a situation, then whatever the outcome, it will be best," I said and started healing work aimed at the clouds.
Within a minute the funnel had broken in half. Within four minutes it was gone. The sirens stopped. We looked at each other.
Coincidence? "Re-coincidence"? What do you think?
I find it delightfully amusing that we will never know if the healing was what ended the funnel. And does it really matter?
Either way, a tornado did not rip through our town today, and I hope you had a pleasant afternoon as well.
