Hey guys! The post is unplanned today, but when I realized what that date is, it inspired an entire post! Many of you guys have heard me share my story about my car accident. Well, While working on my book, I realized that today is the 2 year anniversary of my car accident. Exactly two years ago today, I totaled my brand new Lincoln- and today I'm forever grateful. Let me explain. You see, if you don't already know, I hold a license in physical therapy and a BA in Healthcare Management. Two years ago, I was managing a therapy clinic, and having already been doing readings as a medium on the side for about 3-4 years. I developed a great love for the mediumship I grew into and the more I felt purpose with it, the less connected I felt to my current job. This put me in an impossible situation because I wasn't about to quit my day job- and the Universe knew it. I began saying things like, " someday I'll just do readings all the time for my day job." Essentially, that's where I felt the most purpose and fulfilled. Well, on this day, two years ago, I was driving to work like any other day. During my 30 minute drive, I became painfully aware of my thoughts and how unhappy I was with my current job. I was still confused though. I loved therapy and loved working with the geriatrics in the nursing home, but I knew I love my spiritual work more, and felt more like myself in those moments. So, as I'm approaching wok, about 10 minutes out, and painfully aware that this job is not my purpose, I began begging the Universe to " put me on my path. Give me a sign, something, anything, and make it so obvious I can't possibly miss it. Simultaneously, a song came on the radio ( Something in the water by Carrie Underwood) that I used to use to connect with spirit, and also at that same time I began to sneeze repeatedly. They say when you sneeze like this, it's spirit moving through you. Anyways, before I knew it, I was waking up, with my airbag in my lap, the passenger airbag was also deployed. There was smoke everywhere and the pain in my foot and my hand were numbing. I heard a voice yelling at me, asking for my location. As I came to, I realized this was onstar (didn't even know my car had the function) trying to help me. I was just waking up, trying to figure out what had happened. My car hood crunched up, smoke everywhere and the feeling of extreme nausea were all I could think about. I was extremely confused. I do remember looking at my cell phone, and wanting to call my husband, but I couldn't remember is number, or even how to get the dial pad up so I used the voice activation feature. He answered like this, " I'll call ya back babe, I'm in a meeting." Of course I freaked out and told him I'd been in a wreck, so he changed his tone. HA! Anyways, as the paramedics arrived, their only concern seemed to be if I had been exposed to Ebola in the past 6 months, once they realized I was Ebola free, they let the compassion flood in. They were kind, helpful and informative. They managed to get me out of my car, and while in the back of the ambulance, the questions came flooding in. " How old are you? When is your birthday? What's your address?" and so on. I became emotional and started to cry. Not because I was scared, but because I couldn't answer their questions. I didn't know how old I was, or when my birthday was. I couldn't give them my husband's number to call him, because I couldn't remember that either. I couldn't remember what happen, that caused the accident. It was all such a blur. I didn't feel, see or hear the accident. In all of this memory loss I felt robbed. My hand and foot were just minor injuries compared to my head. I had a severe concussion and went through 3 months of speech/cognitive therapy. Through this time, I was in such bad shape cognitively that I couldn't return to work. My poor balance was terrible, and that was a hazard to my safety-let alone trying to regain balance with my patience at work. I would forget what I was saying, loose my train of thought, and it was so bad it was embarrassing. My husband would have to tell me things over and over. It was awful. Anyways, the whole reason I wanted to share this experience with you is to show you how powerful the silver lining can be. Although my brain was not functioning well at all, I knew that I essentially didn't need productive thought process at all to channel spirit. In fact, it's quiet the opposite. I have to suppress thought process to channel. So, while home, resting, I continued to channel spirit for clients, and I continued to have successful sessions. I soon realized that the Universe took me very literally in my pleading to be put on the right path with a sign so obvious I wouldn't miss it. In the time it took me to recover, the company I worked for lost their contract with the building to provide therapy services, and my position was dissolved. I couldn't have returned to work If I wanted to. This was the Universe at work for me. As I look back, I am forever grateful for that day because it was everything I needed to get to where I am now. Since then, I have learned so much about myself and continue to evolve through my own curiosity. Thank God for the silver lining! Always remember to look for the opportunity to grow!
