Masters and the Lady
The Lady was
injured in spirit and body. For some time she had been making changes in
her life in an effort to heal her spirit. She held on to some ways of
being, for awhile, but the universe kept showing her what ways she must
let go. Recently the universe had let her make a terrible fall that
injured her face as well as her spirit. But the Lady knew that the fall
was needed so that she could release more old ways and accept the healing.
Soon after the
fall, two Masters came to stay with the Lady, The Talking Master and The
Being Master. The Talking Master moved with his energy, not his muscles,
and spoke many words to explain how he did this. The Being Master spoke
few words but the lady could feel his energy with every move he made and
every smile that beamed from his face. And The Lady accepted the healing.
showed her how to move the energy throughout her body to heal herself and
to feel power and strength both physically and spiritually. The Talking
Master told her that when she had healed herself she could then use her

smiled at the Lady. The smile was gentle, soothing, and knowing. And The
Lady accepted the healing.
The Lady spoke

smiled and The Lady accepted the healing.

with The Talking Master of her physical pains. The Talking Master showed
her ways to move energy through the pain in her body. The Talking Master
spoke of special herbs that would be needed to totally cure the pain. He
wrote beautiful words on paper to describe the herbs so that The Lady
might find them. The Being Master smiled and The Lady accepted the
On the final
night of the Masters’ visit, The Talking Master removed a special vial
from his pocket. The vial contained a soft brown powder. The Talking
Master asked for a small bowl and some oil. He mixed the oil with some of
the powder and told The Lady to gently rub it on her face before she
slept. The next morning The Lady’s face had lost almost all signs of the
injury. The Being Master smiled and The Lady accepted the healing.
morning the Masters flew away saying they would come again. The Lady
pondered the visit of the Masters. She thought about her wounded body and
spirit and knew they would be healed in time. She savored a message
received before she slept: "With the spring flowers will come
joy." And The Lady accepted the healing.
