Divine Intervention trumps the Ego, every time!

Updated: May 30, 2020


If you’ve received our broadcast news about the exciting launch of our new private practice, you may be thinking: Say what?!!!! Are you kidding me? Launch a new private practice in the midst of our world-wide Coronavirus pandemic? What are you two thinking?!?!!

Well, I have to confess that, at first, these very thoughts crossed our minds.

After six months visioning, planning and creating our private practice… After months attracting our beautiful new office in which we would consult with our blessed clients ~ we naturally had to ask ourselves the very same question!

Just what kind of a bad joke is this, exactly, this concurrence of this entity called ‘COVID-19’ with the opening of our new practice? Just what is this beast that’s single-handedly halted our world economy, as it has, disrupting all of our lives, imposing all sorts of sanctions upon our collective freedom and liberties ~ all in the name of our safety, well-being and health, anyway?

Seductive as it is to think in such ways, thank goodness I quickly realized I needed to command an immediate moratorium on my thought. I realized that this is merely ego mind, thinking it knows best. Yet again! Because the truth of the matter is that we must trust that everything that happens is truly for our highest good, and that all is in perfect and divine order.

The words of Tyee reporter, Andrew Nikiforuk, suddenly reminded me of the higher purpose and wisdom in the way our launch is rolling out. Nikiforuk recently stated: ‘Pandemics: They disrupt, reveal and renew. They give opportunity to rethink what we’ve come to believe is normal’.


So... How absolutely perfect that, as creative disruptors ourselves, the birth of our Healing Works Counselling should align with such a pandemic.

Are physical and social distancing inconvenient during launch time? Of course.

Does the virus pose unique challenges to drawing our audience? Yup.

Is virtual counselling trickier to manage for both therapist and client alike? You bet.

Is it possible? And HOW!!!

As a number of kindred spirits correctly intuited: ‘Your services are needed now more than ever around the world!!’

You bet they are!

Grant & I have been deeply moved by all the outpouring of love, encouragement, good cheer and support we have received. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! We are ever so grateful for all the ways the Universe has supported us in the most magical and serendipitous ways in realizing our desire to be of higher service. We are so excited and honoured to meet all those of you who stand to benefit from what we have to offer!

In our wildest indulgences, much as we have been praying for this epic transformation and cultural re-birth that is in our midst, we would never have imagined that it would show up in quite the way it has. Nor could we possibly have imagined launching under such conditions. As we are all being encouraged to learn and diligently practice, however, it’s ALL about trusting in our courage, creativity, wisdom and resiliency to pave our path!

Do you think it’s a coincidence that our launch concurred near holidays like Easter and Passover?


Easter, as you know, is a holiday about resurrection, while Passover, a holiday celebrated by Jews the world over, celebrates the liberation of Jews from enslavement in Egypt. What apt metaphors! Our very reason for being, at Healing Works, after all, is to assist you in claiming the fullest expression of your joy, freedom and power, and help you to restore your inner harmony.

However imperfect or impractical our timing may appear to our human mind, I was again awed and deeply grateful to note the perfection and timely relevance of Caroline Myss’ words. Myss, an American medical intuitive, mystic and best-selling author, shared in a recent podcast [and I paraphrase]:

‘A new type of spiritualty is emerging. One that is unifying our understanding of how our health works. This understanding affirms that our bio-spiritual nature is one with the earth; that we have a bio-ecology within us; that we breathe with the earth; that the divine is an organic system that is breathing within all life. One of the great truths that has been downloaded to us in the last decades is that we create our own reality. This is going to be the core of an emerging spirituality.’

Our Healing Works’ philosophy is beautifully aligned and consisent with the emerging spirituality alluded to by Myss.

So… How’s THAT for a re-frame on just what we thought was crazy timing?

And if you think that this applies only to us, think again!


For everything I have shared here applies to you as well. When we learn to recognize the truth in divine perfection, no matter how ‘crazy’ our circumstances may ‘appear’ to us on the surface of things, when we recognize the unique gifts being offered to us in this moment ~ we will be overcome in joy, gratitude and inner peace for the magic that our mindfulness offers us!

Over to you now. Can you think of a time or a situation in your life that at first appeared crazy to you, only to leave you awed by the countless gifts and perfection it served up for you? Love to hear your sharing. Contact us.

Together, healing happens!
