Elizabeth, Modoc Cypress, and an Old iPhone


A couple of days ago my iPhone would not charge. I tried all the fixes online and with apple chat and finally went to the apple store. As I was racing out the door to make the appointment I heard "take your old phone". Finally, on the third prompt from my intuition, I put the old phone in my bag. I was a bit grumpy as this whole not charging thing had taken the entire day. At the apple store, I was connected with a very sweet young guy who quickly fixed the charging problem. I then asked what I should do with my old phone and how to clear the info from it. This lovely man offered to clear the phone and as the phone cleared, our conversation made its way to my tree card project. He said, "I know you! You are the person who does tree bathing. My partner wants to contact you to do a session as her mom recently died and she heard that you helped another woman with her grief." There was a bit of unraveling of some confusion of who and when and such, but then he mentioned that a woman had been to the apple store for a repair and met him, and she had told him that she had done a tree session with me and had processed lots of grief. I told him he must have me mixed up with someone else, but then he described Elizabeth (in the photo above happily reclining on a madrone during our session) and how she helps women over 40 stay fit and claim their health. Yes! Elizabeth from Rhode Island! Yes, he said. Elizabeth and I had spent New Year's Eve afternoon in the trees. Her session had been on other issues, seemingly, but the grief piece just intuitively presented itself when I was urged to take her to meet a Modoc Cypress. More chatting at the store and both of us happy to have the great conversation that followed about trees and their mighty powers and the connections with each other, through Elizabeth and to his partner as well. Thank you, Elizabeth! Thank you intuition! If I had not listened and brought my old phone, the lovely young man and I would never have made the heart-felt connection that we made.
