“Soul-Pointing Not Bone-Pointing”

A very dedicated nurse practitioner told me of a patient whom I had once also seen. She is afflicted with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and has of course mobility difficulties. When I saw her, her Inner Flame was very low – she had read and been told so much about her diagnosis and her prognosis that she had, basically, surrendered any desire to live.

In my brief time with her I helped her to actuate her Life Energy in ways which need not concern us here – in essence, Soul-pointing.

Perhaps with that help, but certainly with the dedication over time of her nurse practitioner she had steadily improved. Until she developed a severe cold which also impaired her swallowing and breathing.

And her doctor, after the antibiotic shot, told her that she would die just that way: struggling for breath, drowning in her saliva!!!

That’s medical bone-pointing.
