The event I am about to share is not current.
This story is about an experience that happened several years ago that still gives me the shivers.
In July 2010, I found myself traveling to Southern California to assist a then client with a live event she was facilitating.
The hotel was beautiful and only a short ride from the beach, which made it nearly perfect.
Yet, there was a dark energy that surrounded it.
An energy many of the patrons did not feel or see.
Even I was oblivious to it… until it was too late.
The trip had me quite busy.
My mind was restless with all the tasks that needed to be completed before we went “live”.
There was so much to do for an event of this size… and it was our first time doing one.
So much to do… with no help.
Needless to say, I wasn’t paying much attention to how I was feeling, nor did I give much thought to the eerie hue hovering in my peripheral vision.
I just kept plowing forward.
Then came the itch.
A persistent itch on my scalp.
And it was incredibly annoying!
Little did I know that there was a message there.
What seemed to be out of the blue (meaning, I was told while having a smoke outside) that 27 people had taken headers off the roof of the hotel.
Not all at once, of course.
More interesting is that this intuitive person felt compelled to tell me.
Like really does attract like!
So, 27 people had plunged to their deaths from the roof of a hotel that had only been open for a year or so? Well, damn!
I continued to ignore it!
So, the spirits took matters into their own ‘hands’ upon my return home.
The itch turned into a disgustingly oozing mess that would eventually take over my entire scalp and face.
For a brief moment, I was reminded of Joseph Merrick… and I wept for him.
I was miserable!
I couldn’t sleep.
I could barely eat.
Yet, I kept working ’cause gotta keep that money flowing!
My then client, who is also highly intuitive, was beyond worried. It was through her persistence that prompted me to seek medical attention.
In hindsight, taking a spiritual approach would have also been beneficial. Y’know… I should have busted out a shitload of sage and consecrated water and got busy.
So, I headed to the doc.
Oh, the compassionate stares.
But doc wasn’t phased in the least. He just checked me out, wrote a ‘scrip and sent me on my way.
A couple of days of antibiotics, and I was right as rain.
So, what would prompt so many people to check in… and never check out?
I may never know.
However, this experience has taught me to never again discount the energies around me; to always be mindful of the hints and nudges I am receiving; to listen with my non-physical ears and hear the voices that seek to be heard then get off my ass and do something about it!
