My closed eyes popped open in shock. I’d just seen a woman’s lungs like an x-ray machine! I saw the individual fibers and the alveoli (the tiny air sacks within the lungs) that actually appear as grape-like clusters. Inflamed orange-red filled her lungs, with the right side much more irritated than left. I could see darkened areas within the red. It was a few minutes before I realized that I was literally seeing inside this woman’s body, deep within her lungs.
I said, “Are you a smoker?”
“Oh yeah, I plan to quit soon,” she declared with a laugh.
We were surrounded by thirty or so other women, all taking a break during a weekend workshop. I was one of the presenters for the program but as I look back, I am no longer sure what the program was even about. I was simply shocked to know that I was seeing actual lung tissue. At that moment I became a medical intuitive. The retreat center and all the lively, talkative women around me just faded away.
That was the beginning. I realized that I was looking into another human’s lungs like a photographer taking a digital image or an x-ray machine showing a troubled area.
