Excerpt from Chapter 8: Medical Intuitive/Healer
Brent Atwater

Pages 126-127 describing first meeting with Brent Atwater, Medical Intuitive/Healer and Artist

My investigative reporter persona was in full swing and I was delighted to have such a willing subject to interrogate. I wanted to know everything about Brent and her medical intuitive abilities - what it was like to be her, how did it work, how did she feel about it. 

Sometimes in my enthusiasm, I ask very penetrating questions, often oblivious to the potential impact they might have on someone. I process information rather quickly and even more effectively if I can keep a certain pace going when I am interviewing someone. I suspect it probably feels like my subjects have a big spotlight shining in their face as I continue my rapid fire probe for nuggets of insight. Brent took heart in knowing that I was genuinely interested in her and her gifts and luckily did not take offense from my intense questioning. In fact, she later said she found it somewhat liberating. In the small community she lives in, she doesn't get an opportunity to talk about it often, and certainly not to the degree sought this evening. The three of us became a totally captivated audience as we were drawn in by our fascinating dinner partner.

Brent had been part of a group of young children identified with extra sensory perception skills and had been the subject of a study all through their childhood. Yet these gifts had not become a focus in her adult life. Rather she had chosen to pursue the study of law and eventually settled on using her artistic talents as an illustrator and painter. She had met the love of her life and they had been in a close relationship for many years when they had finally decided to get married.  Hours after becoming engaged, he was killed in a tragic accident that sent Brent into a wild emotional and physical tailspin that left those around her fearful she would not recover. She was taken to the Duke Center for Integrated Medicine, where she had a long standing relationship from the earlier childhood studies. At first puzzled at what was causing her dramatic and dangerous shift in vital signs, the medical researchers eventually discovered that it was due to a rise in the accessibility of a high powered energy level which heretofore had been dormant. When they walked her into their MRI lab, all the equipment immediately powered down. When she stepped out of the room, the power came back on and all the equipment returned to full operation. Excitedly they performed other tests to validate their theory. They marched her into a room full of x-rays and had her tell them what she thought about them. Even though she had not been trained in the medical field, she was now spouting medical terminology reflecting the conditions she was viewing.
