It’s been acknowledged being a dentist is the most hated profession; in other words, most people do not like visiting the dentist. Dentists actually have a high percentage of depression because of it. Well, we now have a new profession I believe is close to this detested-most-coveted number one position. It’s the TSA. I for one, have not enjoyed being poked, prodded, asked to strip, throw everything into a plastic bucket, rushing to make it through the radiation machine, only to wait and wait for the plane. Not the most enjoyable experience. However, how would you feel if you were an employee of this government agency?? I was fortunate enough to discover some first-hand-behind-the-scenes feedback.
This past weekend I spent Saturday giving readings/healing to a group of TSA agents. In fact this day was set up just for them to relax, detox from the stress, and experience an entirely new way of looking at their profession. A learning experience for me as well, to see the TSA through a entirely new lens.
Imagine going to work every day, knowing you had to expect the worst. That would suck big time. I am the opposite. Every day is a great day, every day has possibilities of greatness. These people are expected to go to their jobs without smiling, ‘expecting the worst in everyone,’ be suspicious, without joking and/or having any measure of fun as they go through their work day. All this while being exposed for eight hours to radiation from the x-ray machines. To compound the pressure, 99% of the passengers going through the security-cattle-call, view disdainfully the men and women doing their jobs. Not a fun place to be.
These women I worked with were lovely individuals. The high level stress they deal with perpetually is wearing thin on their psyches as well as health. Each one of them had adrenal stress or fatigue, had stiff neck muscles from wearing their work on their shoulders, nervous system overload, liver toxicity and/or had stomach/digestive issues. I would too, if I worked in a profession where people disliked me just by showing up for work.
It was really rewarding to see the results in these women as they experienced the different modalities set up just for them: massage, palmistry, my intuitive counseling/medical-intuitive work and lots of good food and companionship. But most importantly, I put myself in their shoes and saw airports in a new view. The reason this is very interesting is, in my book ‘Soul Rays: Discover the Vibratory Frequency of Your Soul,’ I write about the TSA. I love how the universe magically manufactured this event enabling me to see this agency from the other side of the mirror.
From ‘Soul Rays‘:
‘Imagine having the opportunity to peruse ahead of time, your next reality-adventure-‘lifetime’-vacation. You scour travel brochures to visualize the most colorfully vibrant location, showcasing all you desire in a new lifetime voyage. As the ‘soul’ traveler, options are closely scrutinized, viable outcomes discussed to determine which transporter, ‘air’-line (transporter of cellular energy,) is the most beneficial and worthy of lifetime attendance. The soul traveler has the opportunity to pinpoint specifically the vital components for participation, enrichment, wisdom and evolution, within the vibration of color. Determining the color ray which best defines the next probability, refines and polishes the traveler’s acquired talents and skills.
Fortunately you can take this journey with no bag checks, no TSA, no extra fees, poor food.’
I shared this with the TSA agents; fortunately they all thought it ironically funny. Whew!! I won’t change it in the book, however I truly do have a new vision on a very difficult career. Bottom line, the Federal agency’s mucky-mucks really need to rethink public image, be willing to work with passengers rather than against them, with more hand’s on supportive attention to their employees. Everyone would benefit and our airlines would still be safe, airport experiences’ happy. Oh, what a concept.
Next time you travel, send each one who has signed up for this occupation, good thoughts, a smile. Be gracious. I know it will make a difference in the airwaves.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
