Patron Saint of Firefighters

I have a friend in California who is a firefighter. It’s not her passion, but she’s doing this very important work and she knows the risks…sees them every day. And if that’s not enough, she’s married to a policeman, so she sees a great deal, hears the tragic stories, and witnesses them herself.

Recently, a couple of fellow firefighters were injured, and one quite severely. My friend doesn’t know him personally, but she purchased a couple healing sessions from me, because that’s just how her heart is…big and generous and compassionate. Her greatest ambition is to be a philanthropist.

This morning I woke up to an email she’d written about the miracle of healing. The firefighter has been extubated (is now breathing on his own), can walk and talk again, and has been moved to a hospital closer to home…something my friend called “nothing short of amazing!”

Saint Florian may be the patron saint of firefighters and their families, but my friend in California is as well. Perhaps Saint Florian is guiding her…

  1. Dearest Maria..I just wanted to convey my deepest gratitude for the work that you are doing. I have just finished reading the healing testemonials on your website and was in tears the whole way through. I had my first reconnective healing a week ago from a practioner here in Vienna, week I am to be "Reconnected" and will soon attend a level I/II workshop with Eric Pearl. I have known since I was a young girl that healing is my path in this life..been through alot of illness myself and have learned so much from it all. My deepest wish to be of service to my fellow travelers on this earth and I just know that Reconnective Healing is the tool I have been being prepared for for a long time. Your honesty, sincerity and transperancy as a healer is a real inspiration for me..and thus I say "Thank You" from the bottom of my heart…I am honored to have been led to your website, Facebook page and this blog and will stay in touch. Blessings abound…Sallie
