The Pain We Carry Being The Seeds Of Physical Illness Or The Call To Compassion & Healing

The Pain We Carry Being The Seeds Of Physical Illness Or The Call To Compassion & Healing

September 21, 2022
Robert Case and I covered so much ground. 💥 We touched on intuition, synchronicity, being a soon to be published author and so much more.
 
Loved this quote, " Leave the door ajar, answers come from wherever they come from."
 
He talked to plants as a child and started listening as an adult. When he was a child his parents used to call him the absent-minded professor, and yet he managed to get a doctorate in clinical pharmacy. He went into the psychiatric-medical world which all changed when an AHA moment, or Grace, visited him as he was nearing completion of his psychiatric pharmacotherapy residency.
 
Things started happening that neither he, or his studies could explain. He was learning that illness does not start in the physical body, and could be understood, and treated best through the subtle body. Each illness and treatment is a multidimensional experience where consciousness is the healer. Nature, including humanity, is more connected and beautiful than he ever imagined. Except, he still has difficulty including himself.
 
Then his greatest teacher unexpectedly arrived when was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 23 years ago. Summary of those chapters is this: the pain we carry could be the seeds of physical illness or the call to compassion and healing. He had to learn all over again that his intuition, and his compassionate heart, are his greatest gifts. More importantly, these need to be shared with the Earth and humanity because they need them now!
