A Potent Choice – Ode to My Mother-in-law

Published By on June 23rd, 2004 in Circle Stories From The Heart

I received a letter yesterday, that has impacted me greatly. I have been doing healing work with other people since 1996. Shortly after an advanced shamanic training with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, I found myself immersed in working on behalf of others. One of those people, was my dear mother-in-law who was diagnosed with breast cancer shortly after my return from training. She was most open to my journeying and working on her behalf. It wasn’t until just yesterday, when I opened and read a letter that she wrote, that I realized the impact of my work. Many people have shared with me the potency of the shamanic work that I practice, but somehow it hasn’t sunk in until now. When I read the letter, I realised for the first time that had I not entered into this type of work, my mother-in-law may not be here. As I read the letter, I realised that Spirit truly worked through me to relay a very important message to my dear friend/mother-in-law. I am so very grateful to have the ability to help others, and that my mother-in-law heeded the information. She made a choice at that point in her life that allowed her to continue to walk with us, and share her wonderful gifts. My heart is full with thankfulness, and if you are reading this Linda, I love you so very much, and thank you for all of the encouragement you have given me to continue my work.
