It was an ordinary Saturday. A busy day spend getting household chores done and spending time with my active 2 year old. The week ahead, a traffic-filled Toronto commute to my professional career, a position of importance. But unfortunately I was feeling sick, thought I was coming down with the flu, and didn’t know how, if that happened, I’d be able to hold it together as a sole parent.
I decided on the proverbial “F*ck it.” While my 2 old year old went down for a nap at two, I decided to do the same. Then something unusual happened. Within minutes of my exhausted body lying limply on the bed, a warm energy field suddenly came over me, like a small cloud. What followed after that in semi-consciousness was an intense download of light, energy and information. A long time meditator with an evolved awareness, I was able to simultaneously nap, observe what happened, and take sloppy notes. The information I received seemed to be a set of intuitive processes.
I awoke two hours later feeling like I just came back from vacation. I marvelled. No trace of the illness or fatigue remained. I was totally well and energized. My daughter also awoke then and it was back to fun, love and dinner prep.
Later when I sat down to look at my scrawled notes and try to make sense of what happened, I realized that it didn’t matter what my mind state, physical health or life situation was. It seemed that when something needed to happen, it was going to happen. That, I accepted. I studied the processes a little more. They seemed very interesting. And then I put the notes away and continued my week of work, commute, home and parenting.
The following Saturday I was feeling good, as usual. My daughter went to sleep again at 2 and I was getting in gear with laundry and all the things I would get done while she slept. She was a gifted and energetic child and believe me, this was the best way for me to get things done.
But, as I was walking towards the hallway to the basement stairs, I suddenly felt like I was going to faint. This never happens. I literally had to hold the walls and door frames to make it to my bed, where I collapsed. Within a few minutes the energy field returned and continued a prolonged download, the same way as before. Again I slept, observed and took notes. After two hours, it stopped. And an inner voice told me. “You’ve got everything you need. Now go teach.”
When I had time to review my notes in more detail some time later I looked at the intuitive processes and wondered if they would work. I began to test and use them. They did work. They provided a way to extract intuitive insight and information from other levels of intelligence. They showed me an alternative way to use my mind, which had become an educated scientific mind, though still highly open and creative. This was another way entirely. The intuitive processes were intriguing. And I realized then that they could potentially help a lot of people.
After that I put my instructional designer hat on and began the work of transforming these into a concise self-directed learning program and a corporate workshop. Little did I suspect that the exact 1/2 day and time the following year when I took a 1/2 day of vacation to launch and deliver the first workshop to a corporate group, my colleagues would be in a gathering room, many of them having been terminated due to downsizing, at precisely the same time. I came back elated from a positive experience, while they were completely distraught and numbed by the terminations. Fortunately, I was not one of those, but I later elected to take a package and leave to pursue my other work. And that was when my training company Intuita was born.
