Dear Marc, how do you feel about New Agers? I don’t think I would care at all, if my mother wasn’t so big on alternative medicine and treatments. She’s a psychiatrist, and have worked as a regular doctor and psychiatrist for more than 30 years.
The New Age wave brought her even more treatment alternatives when traditional methods failed. She’s now also into energy medicine, healing oils and various acupressure points. I find it hard to believe I even have chakras, but she tells me I do, and in all the right places too!
Now mom’s not above putting her methods to work for other needs too.
The other day, she was on the subway, caught up in a book on mindfulness. Her mind was so full that she left a bag with her favorite red linen jacket behind.
Mom did not cry. She used Reiki to bring her jacket back. Not only was the jacket returned by the subway people, but later that day, my mom found an identical red jacket in a store. These jackets are not easy to come by, she’s looked for an extra one since she bought the first one a few years ago.
What I’m trying to say here is that if you’ve lost a loved item of clothing, my mom might be able to bring it back for you. She’s not your regular doctor.
ps. Coming up: A real Marc Jacobs dilemma! Will be posted in a few hours or whenever my kids go to bed.
