Between the death of someone very dear to me and Socrates’ health issues, I was highly motivated to learn healing modalities for both people and animals. I was working on healing my own heart and seeking to move past negative patterns of scarcity and fear.
Several years later, I became sick with fevers, infections, pain and chronic exhaustion. After seeing many doctors, I learned I had an autoimmune disease for which traditional medicine offers no cure. In both physical pain and feeling exhausted, I was also in emotional pain and struggling as a burnt-out and devoted caregiver for my elderly mother.
More than a year before she passed, my mother was boomeranging from ER rooms, to hospital stays, to stints at rehab facilities, and back home, only to land in the ER again. We were traveling a very difficult road together. During that year, I also broke a bone in my foot and was unable to get around without a walker and couldn’t drive for three months. It was a challenging time indeed, but not without so many blessings.
In November of 2011, I was in an online prayer coaching class. When our teacher became ill, she asked me to inform students abroad that she was sick. One of them, Sharbel, became a dear friend.
Unable to participate live because of the time difference between Lebanon and the United States, he first recognized our connection when he heard my voice on the class audios. We soon realized that despite the differences in our ages, cultures, religions and geography, that some extraordinary divine connection had been made.
God’s hands seemed to be very deliberately guiding all. Once this connection was made, no matter how illogical it seemed to us and others, we could not be separated. Divine destiny was at work.
Several months into our relationship via Skype, texting and telephone, we realized we were Twin Flames who had been brought together to heal one another and also to share our gifts with the world.
