Yesterday’s first class that I taught with Trevor Hart for Reorienting Your Inner Compass was called When Life Throws You A Curveball. (It’s not too late to get the recording and learn the deeper practices we shared to help us navigate life’s curveballs with great consciousness. You can still register here.)
As I shared with you yesterday, my beloved mother was just diagnosed with a rare and aggressive kind of leukemia. (If you missed it, you can read about our shock and our magic stories here.) When life throws you a curveball, advice is often the last thing you need. You need permission to be emotional. You need room to be with what has happened. You need . . . whatever YOU need. It’s so individual. That said, I thought I’d share with you some of the things that help me when life throws me curveballs.
Picture the scene. Trevor is a young man, hiking above the tree line at 14,000 on a Colorado mountain when suddenly, a storm blows in and lightning is striking all around him. He knows he’s a dead man. As the tallest lightning rod on the mountain, the lightning appears to be following him, so he drops to his knees and makes a solemn vow. If his life is spared, he will become a man of God.
This is just one dramatic frame in the journey that led Trevor first to a Lutheran seminary, then to a baptism at a Southern Baptist church, then to an Indian guru in the Kashmir Shaivism yogic tradition after a near death experience during his baptism.
Watch below as I interview Sacred Medicine healer Trevor Hart about the miraculous life journey that led him to spend thirty years as a healer—offering spiritual mentoring and remote sacred geometry healings using a healing technology from the future—to ease the suffering of some of the sickest people on the planet, the ones Western medicine no longer knows how to help. Trevor and I will begin our collaborative group mentoring and healing work soon, so if you feel the draw to know Trevor better, watching this video of me and Trevor, filmed in my home, will give you an intimate glimpse into the life of an extraordinary man, someone who I deeply admire and trust. You can also learn more about Trevor’s work here.
Apparently, many of you read last week’s blog about Trevor Hart: Is White Magic Real? Let Me Introduce You to a Real Live Wizard because Trevor has gotten received over 500 emails requesting appointments and inquiring about our new upcoming course, "Reorienting Your Inner Compass." We are delighted that so many people are open to such an unconventional approach to healing, and we are heartened that Trevor’s insights into the healing process may help us heal ourselves, educate doctors, and revolutionize and expand what is possible in health care on a more global scale.
We’ve all seen this famous image. Is it two white faces looking at each other? Or is it a black vase? See how you have to shift your lens to see one or the other? It’s almost impossible to see both at the same time, isn’t it? But if you pull back far enough, you can almost see that both are true at the same time. It’s two white faces, and it’s a black vase. You can’t quite see them both at the same time. You can flip the lens of your perception back and forth faster and faster until they almost collapse into both at once. But you can’t quite do it.. When you focus on one perspective, it’s hard not to lose the other. Such is the mystery and wonder of holding a paradox.
I was researching a future book Sacred Medicine when a friend who knew about my interest in spiritual healing suggested I interview Trevor Hart, who offered remote healings over the phone from his home in New Hampshire. My friend was hosting Trevor as he offered his first public workshop about aligning with your soul’s blueprint in California. I attended the workshop and listened with rapt awe as Trevor spoke. I approached him afterward, and there’s a whole magic story that I won’t get into about how we came to be fast friends. From November 2015 until June 2016, Trevor and I spoke nearly every week, diving into spiritual inquiry together, discussing our healing work, and sharing magic stories. By June, we had developed a sweet fondness that lead us to want to spend more time together in person, so I flew to New Hampshire to spend the week with Trevor. Trevor feels like my spiritual father, the way Rachel Naomi Remen, MD feels like my spiritual mother. I feel incredibly blessed to have both of them in my life. Most of you have heard many stories about Rachel’s influence on my life, but until now, Trevor wasn’t prepared to have me talk about him publicly. Now, we are preparing to teach together this year in an online program Reorienting Your Inner Compass: Spiritualizing Your Life’s Work While Sailing Through the Rough Seas of Change. So, in preparation for expanding who his message reaches, Trevor has finally given me permission to share with you some of the mysteries we delve into together and some of the revelations I have learned through my relationship with Trevor.
