It has to be helping a person to pass over from this world to the next with no fear.
And thankfully I have been able to do this on more than one occasion.
I’ve just spent the past three weeks (in my allotted writing time) writing the story of a very special patient of mine. From the first time he came to see me, to his life before his first visit (he was a good friend of our sons since they were both little boys). To the very last journey he ever took with me at his side, on an entirely different level of awareness.
That last joinery of his was almost as amazing for me, as it was for him.
I had no idea what I was doing at the time, and I most defiantly had no idea what was going to happen.
But I can look back now with a smile and say ‘Thank You ‘ to the powers that be for helping me to help a very deserving 25 year old young man.
His amazing story will be published in my fourth book, and it’s a long story, but here is just a taster.
He was just two years old when he had his first kidney removed due to cancer.
He was eighteen years old when he had his second kidney removed.
He was 21 years old when he first asked for my help because of an inoperable tumour in his stomach.
He was given a week to live the day my son took the phone call asking if he could come and see me for a treatment, and it was over four years later before he went home, four good years.
I would also like to tell you that I left him in Heaven with the biggest smile on his face and that’s how his family and friends were to see him as he lay in his open coffin. Just as if he was sleeping in the middle of a lovely dream.
The undertakers told his parents that never in all the years they had been in business had they ever seen such a happy corpse. They didn’t need to try and make him look good for his parents or his friends to be able to see him. He looked great all by himself. His face looked so happy with its huge smile.
What a reassuring way for his mum and dad to be able to remember there precious boy.
And what an amazing unusual site to behold for all his friends and extended family on the day of his funeral.
A happy smiling corpse!
And what a privilege and joy for me to have been a part of his very last journey.
