TP365/Year 10:: Connections – Shelley

6 Oct

Today’s connection is dedicated to one of my favorite healers and acupuncturists. Or maybe I should say acupuncturist and healer because she is both.

Her name is Shelley and she is AH-mazing!

Today I had a regularly scheduled acupuncturist treatment, but it always feels more like visiting a sister or maybe an aunt. Definitely someone who is in tune with both my heart and soul.

In fact, it was Shelley who I first saw when that pesky lump popped up in my throat eight years ago. As I sobbed on her treatment table she reassured me everything was going to be okay. And it was.

It’s easy to say that now, as I look back in time, but back then, when I was a frightened and frazzled, it wasn’t so easy to believe.

I think that’s why I love this painting that sits opposite the treatment table in her office. I stare at it during my treatments and it feels like I can step right into that boardwalk. It is as if there is always a reminder to keep walking the path, to keep moving forward, no matter what feels hard or heavy.

I’m pretty sure it’s not just her needles that help people heal but her angelic heart too.

Thank you, Shelley, for all the healing and the hope. This one’s for you!

More tomorrow,
Jamie
