Yesterday was non stop.
We drove 320mls (515kms) from a truck stop near Bakersfild, north of LA, straight to a meeting with two Medical Intuitives in Mill Valley,
Mill Valley is a beautiful town / village across the Bay from San Francisco. It has a very famous film festival, and I was once a guest of that festival for about a week. One of my films was in Official Competition.
I didn't realise at the time that Mill Valley is a major centre for the teaching and practice of Medical Intuition. Aspiring medical Intuitives come from all over the U.S. to study at the Academy of Intuition Medicine –
There's also a University offering degree courses and PhDs.
What is intuitive medicine? That's why I drove 320mls for that meeting. The meeting was with two women – one was a graduate of the Academy, and now a practicing medical intuitive. Her name was Lisa.
The other lady was older. Tall, greying hair, with eyes that were both compassionate, wise, all knowing, and all seeing. She radiated. You meet these people occasionally, and it's hard to classify them, to put a name to them, other than to understand that they're plugged in to a power socket that's beyond the reach of most people.
In times past she would have been burned at the stake.
Her name was Christine, and she too worked as a medical intuitive.
I wanted to know from these two women how medical intuition works. It's a complex practice, but in simple terms what they told me is this:
A medical intuitive first “grounds” herself and the client. Grounding is an essential part of medical intuition. It involves literally anchoring your etheric body into the earth.
The medical intuitive then begins a process of establishing an intuitive link or connection with the client, so that they can effectively read the database of that client. This enables the intuitive to determine what's wrong with the client. Sometimes they discover medical issues that the client wasn't even aware of.
Medical intuition is used both in the diagnosis and treatment of health issues. Treatment involves the medical intuitive harnessing and focusing various energies into the subtle body of the client.
After the meeting Jennifer and I checked into our hotel, and then we went to a class at the Academy. The Academy was founded in 1984 by Dr. Francesca McCartney, and she has pulled together an impressive list of consultants that includes research scientists, surgeons, academics, and practising physicians.
She'd invited us to the last class of the semester.
The class was held in a large room up a flight of stairs in a small building opposite a supermarket. There was maybe 25 students in the class, and quite a few teachers.
Dr. McCartney had invited kennifer and myself to this class, to show us how it all works.
The first part of the class involved each student recounting how their practice had developed over the semester. The second part involved “lab work,” in which the students practiced their techniques on each other.
One of the teachers did a session with me. Poor thing. It sent something like this:
She – Close your eyes and imagine you're sending down roots to the centre of the earth. Now, describe to me how you feel…
Me – I don't want to be earthbound. I want to fly.
She – (taken aback) Oh. Why do you want to fly?
Me – So I can see everything.
She – But you can see everything and still be grounded.
Me – Yes, but when I fly I'm closer to the Galactic Cosmic Rays.
She – (blinking fast now) Oh. But imagine you're a tree. You can still take in the Galactic Cosmic Rays as a tree.
Me – They're most beneficial closer to the sun.
She – But trees get sunlight.
Me – (impressed with her unwavering doggedness to get me grounded, and thinking I better stop being a smart arse) Yes, I guess as a tree I could photosynthesise the Galactic Cosmic Rays.
She (relieved, suddenly beaming) – Yes, you could photosynthesise!
Me – But I would need to be a big tree, like an old Oak. Or a giant Redwood. I don't want to be a piddling little tree.
She – Oh yes, I see you as a giant oak tree!
Me – I still want to fly. I do my best work when I'm flying.
She – (blinking fast again) Oh…
The class was fascinating. And there's no doubt that Dr. McCartney is a leader in the U.S. in energetic teaching and healing. I'm doing an interview with her later today, and with Christine too, the tall elderly lady. Both will provide very interesting insights.
But the first interview today is with Dr. Dean Radin from the Noetic Sciences Institute. I'm very much looking forward to that.
Then after those three interviews we begin the drive back down to LA again this evening. I have meetings back to back tomorrow when we arrive.
Crazy busy, but good.
