His neurosurgery success rates were impeccable. In spite of how life-threatening his surgeries were, his patients never seemed to die. But this neurosurgeon kept getting migraines, and treatment wasn’t working, so he went to see psychologist Elizabeth Lloyd Mayer, author of Extraordinary Knowing. She helped him pinpoint exactly when the headaches began, and it turns out they started right when he stopped teaching medical students and residents at the hospital, which he loved doing. She wondered why did he stop teaching. He was reluctant to tell her.
Turns out the neurosurgeon’s success rates are so high because he waits until a white light surrounds the patient’s head. Then- and only then- he knows it’s safe to operate. But how can he teach this to medical students? Surely he can’t train residents to look for halos around people with brain tumors and aneurysms? Because he felt like he had to hide the mystical experiences that help him guide his patients to safe healing, he quit teaching, and the discord within him led to migraines. He was stuck. He didn’t feel it was safe to tell anyone at the university that he sees white lights nobody else sees. But his body was suffering because of how he was betraying his soul. It’s the kind of conundrum many face as they keep secrets about how mystery and awe dance with life.
