Open Clinic: #3 Ordained into the Ministry

March, 2016, I graduated from my year long Clairvoyance class and received the title of Reverend of the Church of Inner Light. Trying to describe this to my friends and family, I would smile, smirk, and laugh with discomfort. I was sad, confused and completely bewildered. Shouldn’t I be happy having earned this accomplishment?

Feeling particularly unworthy and struggling with what the title of Reverend meant for me, I meditated and asked specifically for guidance and clarification regarding my soul purpose, my new title and Open Clinic.  At the same time, I was listening to one of Stacia’s lectures about accepting new Healing Masters and Psychic Surgeons as spirit guides. We were encouraged to switch out our Healing Masters and Psychic Surgeons if they were ready to transition on, or if I was ready to have a change. Both Peas and Caw said that they were ready to move on. I was very sad to see them go and hoped I had not done anything to turn them away.

As I requested a new Healing Master and Psychic Surgeon, I specifically stated that I needed “legitimate” looking guides.  I was amused as I saw an older male appear with white hair, wearing a white doctor’s lab coat. Talk about looking legitimate!  I asked him what he wanted to be called, and I heard, “Doc!”  Sounds good to me!  Then a psychic surgeon appeared: a younger male wearing blue surgical scrubs, who had a great sense of humor and wanted to be called “Skip.”  Awesome!

Then I heard Skip say, “You wanted us to look legitimate so you and others would take us seriously, so now you need to be someone that we can take seriously as well!”  I knew he was referring to my shrugging off the title of Reverend and being very hesitant to embrace the responsibility of the role. Just then, I felt a large group of souls enter the room and stand to my right.  I responded, “Hang on, we aren’t ready yet.”  I don’t know how I knew, but I just knew that they were there for healing.

In spirit, Skip came to me and put a black minister’s robe on me.  I was honored, humbled and amazed.  Then he approached me with a crown of shining stars and went to put it on my head. I was immediately uncomfortable with the thought of being exalted and said, “No!  I can’t do that!” All of my religious upbringing had focused on worshipping only God, never a person.  I would not wear a crown that would look like I was trying to be Christ-like. He responded with, “This isn’t about YOU!  This is about God, and how He will heal THROUGH you!”  Embarrassed, I understood.  My role in Open Clinic as a healer was to have God’s grace and healing come through me to the souls; I would be nothing more than a conduit.  Awesome!

I donned the robe and the star crown and then stood in the middle of my spirit guides, (the original Wise Council of Four and now including Doc and Skip.) Together we faced forward, and I saw the throng of souls that had been waiting for us.  The first wave felt like hundreds, the second thousands, and lastly a hundred thousand! I saw each of the spirit guides circulating, healing and blessing souls.  I stayed front and center, my arms out wide, channeling Gods brilliant light, grace and love to the masses.  I felt an amazing connection to an all loving, non-denominational God of Gods, Lord of Lords.  I saw that the other souls understood and accepted their healing and blessings as well.  As souls received the healing they desired, they left Open Clinic.

I was able to intuitively understand what some of the stories were:

  • I saw a man who died of AIDS and needed healing from the traumas of the illness. Divine Mother surrounded him with her love and healing and escorted him out.
  • The spirit of a child sat huddled and frightened. A woman in spirit was waiting nearby. She went to the child, embraced her providing security and comfort. Together they waited for healing. I believe the act of them finding each other and finding comfort with each other was the first step in their healing process.
  • I saw souls that had been disconnected from God while in bodies that came to Open Clinic to reestablish their relationships with their God or Divinity.

What an amazing experience!  Afterwards, I realized that I was not physically tired, but exhilarated!  Earlier I had asked for clarification regarding my soul’s purpose and the title of Reverend, and I received answers.  Now I understood! I have been given a ministry!  A ministry of facilitating Open Clinic, and then sharing that news with others, in person and in spirit.  I own this ministry and can now accept the title of Reverend with purpose and honor.

In Spirit or In Body?

Why did some souls desire healing while others were tucked away happily somewhere? I was shown that the bulk of souls are residing in the Cathedral of Souls.  (Not sure what this means to pre-conceptions of Heaven and Hell, but OK.)  I saw that some souls have transitioned out of the physical body, but have not fully passed on, for one reason or another. I believe that the souls in Open Clinic are in the group that needs assistance passing on.  A healing is being sought in order to complete something that went unfinished here on earth, enabling them to finally complete their journey.

The next day, I entered Open Clinic and saw a spirit and I immediately recognized it as my dear friend, Denice!  In spirit, I saw a grayish cloud, but intuitively I knew and saw that it was her spirit.   I got a little worried, one because I had only seen animals and deceased persons in Open Clinic, and two, she is very much alive and we would like to keep it that way!  I asked her why she was there, and she said that she was curious as to what was going on.  When she saw my spirit guides and understood that she could receive a healing, she readily accepted. After she received a blessing from the Divine Mother, Denice flew off in the shape of a dove!

Do all souls with a body fly off as white doves and all those that have already transitioned simply move on when they are done with the healing?  Yes.  I now understood that Open Clinic could serve both animals and human, living and deceased, and better yet, I could discern all of those differences!  (I asked Denice in person if she had been cognizant of spiritually attending OC, and she said no.  That did not deter me from believing in all that I had been shown.)

A day later, my sister in law Sharon appeared in spirit, received a blessing and also flew off in the shape of a dove.  She and Denice are two of my biggest supporters, so it was no surprise to me that they showed up out of curiosity and accepted healing.

The Robe

I love my black minister’s robe!  I put it on energetically every time that I enter Open Clinic. Different experiences in Open Clinic or in meditation have resulted in changes to my minister’s robe, generally in the form of the addition of decorations. It feels like there is some kind of reward system for me, similar to a student receiving a star or mark on the chalkboard for doing good work. The rewards seem to come when I have been particularly stretched as a student or healer; and expecting nothing, I am always delighted to see an acknowledgment of my growth! I have not been able to see who puts the new decoration on my robe, but I do see that something has been changed or added, and each time I have been able to tell why I have received it.

The first reward I was presented was strips of colored glass-like material in differing lengths, approximately 1” wide and  2-6 inches in length of colors associated with the chakras, (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet). The strips were arranged in straight lines going down the front of the robe.  I first received just a few, but gained them quickly with additional experiences.
