It’s amazing how God gets our attention in ways that we least expect it! Monday night I dreamt that I was at a self service chocolate shake shop (don’t know any of those around here…) and a nun in a blue grey habit came up to my husband and I. She handed Peter a large leaf that had a recipe written on the back of it. The recipe was in Italian and it was for a “special Chili”. (I happen to love chili – but Peter doesn’t so I stopped making it when we got together!) The nun then turned and started speaking to me in Italian. I don’t speak Italian, but in my dream I understood what she was telling me. She told me I was a “Bella Donna”, beautiful woman and that Peter needed to make this special Chili for me. She asked me if I understood and I said “yes”. Then she raised her hand to my forehead and imprinted the word, “Caeli” on it.
I immediately woke up and remembered that word, actually, I saw it in front of my eyes. I then went back to sleep, but every time I woke up I saw the word again. When I awoke in the morning, I asked my husband, “What does the word, Caeli mean?” Puzzled, he asked why and I told him the dream. He smiled and said, “Caeli means – “From Heaven” in Italian and comes from a latin derivative.”
It was at that moment, I knew it was going to be a big day. I had a ticket to go see Braco that morning. (Check out bracoamerica.com for more information.) He is a croatian who has the gift of healing. He stands in front of a crowd of 1500 people for 8 minutes and miracles happen! I just had to see for myself.
Not knowing if I would be fit to drive the hour back home, I loaded Dakota and Cayden in the car with me and asked my Dad to drive. They would stay outside at a park while I went into the session. When I arrived, the Westin hotel in Westminister was humming! There was already a line to the lobby waiting to get into the large ballroom. I got into line behind a beautiful woman who had a cooler with her and a large piece of construction paper with pictures pasted all over it. I asked her if she had seen Braco before, she said only on YouTube She explained that she had a ticket to go to every session all day long and that she was told by a friend to bring pictures of loved ones because they could receive healings too.
I quickly looked in my backpack to see if I had any pictures in my pocketbook of my kids. Of course, I had changed purses to fit a water bottle and left out the pictures. I just said a mental prayer for Braco to send healing to all the pictures of people in my iPhone and moved on.
I saw some of my patients there and a few other healers I know. I walked into the largest ballroom – where I had been so many times for Transformational Gates and smiled at how this room already had really good juju from all of the Network Spinal Analysis Retreats that were held there!
I was ushered to a seat at the edge of the room and suddenly realized that my Angels were really with me. I was sitting right in front of the door that Braco would most likely come through. I giggled and said a quick – thank you! for my guides setting this up so nicely.
As Braco got near the other side of the door, I could feel his presence. I could feel the rush of energy go up my spine. I slipped my shoes off and dug my feet into the carpet to stay grounded. The door opened and Braco walked in right in front of me! I was bowled over by the intense amount of humility that came into the room. The love and healing energy was palpable as he walked to the stage, but I could not get over the humility and peace this man exuded! As he started to gaze out at the crowd – really this is all he does – the room lit up! As his gaze spanned the room toward me I found my hands coming up from my sides to receive this love and I felt the waves of energy coursing through my spine! Those of you who know the somato-psychic wave of Network – it was a complete wave of bliss over and over. Tears were running down my cheeks and I began bringing patients, friends and family members into my mind’s eye for healings. Then Braco stepped away and left the room – still in silence – in the greatest state of reverence and humility that I had never experienced from a man before.
I knew in that moment, this man, this opportunity- to feel this much radiance was “Caeli – from heaven!”
I immediately went out and bought a ticket for my husband for that night and my Dad the next day. I knew I needed to sit and soak in what had just happened before re-entering as “mommy.” I could feel the energy still coursing up my spine and down through my palms, as I so often do when I am in sacred sites or putting my hands on people to heal.
I sat down in the lobby next to this amazing couple Chev and Diane. Chev was in a wheel-chair due to a demyelination disease and his wife Diane was so beautifully looking after him. They made a great team! I just watched them communicate and spoke with them about the work that I do, suggesting they go to a practitioner near them in Boulder, but they said, “Ohh, we come to Fort Collins, we would make an appointment with you.” I knew God had set me there for a reason.
I also knew in that moment that I needed to give my gifts more, that there is a greater balance to be had between mothering and healing & that my time would come. I knew that this ALL was “from Heaven” and I need not fret but just listen to that “still, small voice inside me” that my Dad had introduced me to so long ago and it would always lead me back to God.
And luckily, that beautiful peace and knowing stayed with me, even through my 3 year old son screaming at the top of his lungs for the DVD Diego for the next 20 minutes as we searched for the nearest Smash Burger and headed home. Who is it that wrote, “After the ecstasy, the laundry?” No more mountain tops, we are called to be mystics in the real world….pass the ketchup, please!
