Have you ever had the experience when someone saw something in you that you couldn’t see yourself? When I first started coming to CSL White Rock, I enjoyed the talks so much that I began taking courses. I was really interested in deepening my understanding of this beautiful teaching; so, I continued taking courses over the next few years.
It was around this time that there was talk about Practitioner training. I really didn’t know what Practitioners did let alone what Practitioner training involved; so, I didn’t pay much attention. It wasn’t long before Practitioner training was offered when our Minister approached me and said, “Jill, I want you to become a Practitioner.” I was astounded. I told him I wasn’t ‘Godly’ enough. I could not understand what he saw in me that would make him think I could be a Practitioner. I thought of this for a while and decided I had nothing to lose and, since I love these courses, why not take this training; I can decide later if I want to become a Practitioner. The rest is history.
When I became a Practitioner, our Minister approached me again and suggested I should become a Hospice Volunteer. “Hospice!” I shouted. “My God! People are either dying or grieving. I’ve had my share of that already!” But he persisted, so, I trusted that he saw something in me that I did not see in myself and took the Hospice Training.
After finishing my Hospice training, I began working in the Hospice Unit. It was terrifying. I felt out of place. I didn’t know if I should be there. I wondered how I could help people. I felt lost.
This is when I turned to treatment. Before each Hospice shift, I began doing spiritual mind treatments. Not claiming to be a good Hospice Volunteer but to step out of my humanness and allow the Divine to operate fully and completely through me, and as me. To guide me to be what I needed to be to bring love and compassion; in whatever way I was meant to serve - whether it was Hospice or not. I, also, added in the treatment to demonstrate whether this is the work for me. Wow! What a response I received. After these treatments, I’ve had countless demonstrations of connection while serving these beautiful people and their loving families.
I am very grateful that I trusted and listened to someone who saw something in me that I did not see in myself. It has led me to Hospice where I am meant to serve.
