Intuition (10)

Two Day Workshop In Big Sky, MT

By Amanda Eggert, EBS Senior Editor
 
BIG SKY – Elizabeth Thorson, an emergency room nurse, learned early on in her career that she had a talent for predicting who wouldn’t live to her next shift.
 
“I never understood why I was always working on that precipice of life and death in my professional career,” said Thorson, who is offering a workshop in Big Sky titled “Opening to your Intuition” on March 18 and 19. “I just sort of knew as a nurse who wouldn’t be on the ICU the next day, or who wouldn’t be out of surgery the following day.” 
 
Initially, Thorson felt the hospital was not a safe place to elaborate on her well-developed—if unasked for—skill, so she learned to shut down her intuition, just as she had when she was a young girl and sensed there would be hardship or difficulty if she shared certain things she knew without being able to explain them.
 
Then in her mid-30s, she began to open the door a crack—“and that was the beginning of the end for me,” said Thorson, who lives in Camden, Maine, but regularly visits family in Big Sky.
 
Now Thorson offers counseling to people who are seeking guidance on medical issues, as well as people going through a major transition. Although she doesn’t offer diagnoses—that’s practicing medicine without a license and illegal—she can help clients view illness through a different lens and understand possible causes.
 
When Thorson meets with clients who have questions about a medical issue, she works blind, meaning she doesn’t want to know their medical history or symptoms. Thorson said she works harder that way and finds that it forces her to rely more on her intuition.
 
Thorson said learning to operate with an intuitive understanding is more of a right-brain operation, a thinking style she associates with creativity and imagination, than a left-brain one, which is more commonly referred to as the realm of judgment and logic.
 

Meditating for health

Anna Husted

“I radiate health and vitality.”

About 30 days ago I started a journey of self-confidence, health, and seeking abundance through meditating my way to healthier eating. 

I live in Big Sky, Montana, a town where being outdoors is more than just a lifestyle, it’s what we do--some of us all day, every day. We also partake in a higher than average amount of drinking. I love a glass of wine as much as the next person, but in the past six months I’ve noticed that with drinking (nearly every day), I also was eating fattier foods, snacking more, and feeling less focused due to that lack of good food in my life. 

With the onset of summer came Farmer’s Markets. I was eating fresh local foods, making salads, but still found myself snacking too much. That’s when I came across Jon Gabriel's 21-day meditation for weight loss. I didn’t feel as though I needed to lose weight, but I needed focused intention to treat my body better. And it worked. 

Healing a Broken Heart

Two months after the death of his wife of 35 years Sam contacted me to communicate with her. Sam had taken care of his wife Laura through a lengthy illness and was her only caretaker 24/7. Thus he not only lost his wife he lost his job too.

Sam was grieving so deeply he even felt he could not go on without her as she had been his true soulmate. He was now adrift in his grief, was not working, leaving the house or having any interest in any aspect of the life in front of him … he was profoundly emotionally & spiritually lost.

Postcards from the Edge

I work in symbolism every day with clients of all sorts. I am working with doing daily pages based on Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way and I realized I have been drawing symbols. Not only drawing, but then I have been given the meaning of the symbol. I want to share some of them.
