When I visit patients’ homes, I get the privilege of seeing what matters most to them. A view into what is most precious in their lives. Photos, mementos, books, artwork, these are the objects that draw my attention as I concentrate on the person that lies on my table. What is important to them? What is getting them through their day? How do they celebrate their life? How can I connect with them?
Today I focused on a mirror that was surrounded by carved folk art designs. I had seen it many times, but today was the first time I really concentrated on the words, probably because I needed to find the right words to say before I left. After reading the words, it became crystal clear to me to tell my client, “This is your sacred corner, read these words everyday.” There was nothing more powerful that I could have said then what was already there on the wall.
