Boy, did this talk stir me! When I heard Michelle Newten speak of her medical background, my ears perked up like a Boston Terrier at the sound of a Frisbee. There was a time in my life that I wanted to go into the medical field. I too wanted to be a medical professional (a medical doctor, actually) as an earth angel. I thought little about money or status, but rather was enraptured with the joy of service: helping, loving and serving others in pain. I set aside that endeavor, but I have always wondered how others might combine their spirituality with their medical practice.
Unlike Michelle, I lost my spiritual connection before I finished my second decade. I retreated inside myself and “forgot” my love of service through medicine. To hear Michelle maintain her professional life as a nurse while connected to Spirit thus holds a particular intrigue for me. She says that people get signs all the time, but they are too busy, not observant or too riddled with self-doubt to trust the signs. I fall into the third category. I am very observant, never too busy to look for signs and pay attention, but I am ever-doubtful about the validity of the messages. For instance, when I am down and suddenly someone shows up in my life to give me kindness and support, I am the doubter who asks, “What if it is mere coincidence?” Yet, Michelle beckons me: “Miracles just happen when you totally tune in and believe and trust in what they can bring you.” Thank you Michelle, Earth Angel. Nurse.
