I love doing readings. I’m very passionate about it. The interesting thing about readings is the client/recipient almost always has something in common with the reader – the law of attraction. It seems to never fail. When I first became a certified medium in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, I shared an office with my best cheerleader in the Camp, an elderly woman with her own church in a neighboring city. On one of my first days, I was sitting in her office on a Sunday morning before the regular activities. Two women made their way to me. They must have saw me go into the office. They came to the screen door and I invited them. After just a few minutes, I learned that they both had gone through breast cancer, and they were doing perfectly fine. I had just completed the first leg of my journey of breast cancer. My hair already started to grow back, so they couldn’t have known, although possibly on a soul level they did. I thought it was amazing that they were in my presence. I did give one of them a Spirit greeting at the Sunday Afternoon Message Service. That was nearly two years ago. Months after that a woman came to me for a reading. Most times after a reading the client and I chat for a bit. She had mentioned she had breast cancer and I told her I had too. She named her Orlando doctors, who were the same as mine. It wasn’t too long after that when I saw her in the Camp Bookstore. She said she had to go back for a revision, and that she had to choose another plastic surgeon because the initial one was no longer there. I had to choose another too because my construction was not complete. Guess what? We chose the same doctor. And finally Jan. 1, the Bookstore was closed, so there was a whiteboard at the front entrance. I went up there to sign in. There were two ladies sitting on the bench. They were waiting for a friend who was getting a reading across the street. We chatted for a few minutes and I went on my way. I could see their friend coming toward them as I walked away. The woman caught up with me and asked if I could do a 15 minute reading and how much I charged. I told her and then decided that I would do it for no charge. After the reading, she shared that she had procedure that included taking fat from her tummy to create breasts. Guess what? I had the same procedure one month after she did. Then there’s the countless women who had breast cancer that came in Spirit for loved ones. In addition, while I was going through my experience, which took about 2 ½ years to complete, I wrote newspaper stories on people who had breast cancer. You know, I thought I’d never talk about my experience publicly because people unintentionally have lower vibrational comments to share. What people do not get is that everything, and I mean everything is in Divine Order.
