Season 3: Episode 7: Patience, Jedi Master

 

Another series of medical twists and turns sends Archer into surgery. This time, due to a serious sinus infection. As Louise prays the rosary, she contemplates miracles, the potential for transformational healing and the spiritual holy water from Lourdes, France. In this episode of Blink of an Eye, join Louise in exploring the paradoxes of crisis, the brain’s reactions to trauma and numbness, Louise’s thoughts on love and neuroplasticity, and with her youngest sister, Lillian, in sharing memories of the creation of a healing sanctuary in a hospital room and why it matters for medical staff. Louise also shares some unexpected encounters that may have you considering your various friendships as well.  

 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

 

Lillian Phipps Johnston, Louise’s younger sister from Chicago. Lillian had a large part in creating another healing sanctuary, this time in Atlanta, complete with posters, his art and other contributions from loved ones.

Kathy Armstrong, a Financial Advisor with Heritage Financial and dear friend. She returned to Louise for Archer’s healing what Louise had given to her years ago for her own, the holy healing water from Lourdes.

Deidre Provosty Jasmin, Louise’s close college friend and one of the Atlanta Angels, who came to visit Louise as Archer was undergoing another complicated surgery. She and Louise speak about the story behind the rosary Dede pulled out of her purse, and the powerful moment of prayer in the hospital waiting room.

Copy_of_blink-1024x512-_57_94oj3.jpg

As Louise and her friend Dede sat in the waiting room while Archer was in surgery, the two prayed the rosary. Looking into each other’s eyes, they focused and imagined Archer’s healing.  All of these setbacks were just bumps along the way, Louise reminded herself. In this episode of Blink of an Eye, spend some time with Louise as she ponders with a young medical staff woman that in order to move forward, often we have to be pulled back. You’ll also hear about continued struggles with pain management and alternative medical approaches including a powerful interaction between Louise and her friend Jessica Dibb on medical meditation. 

In this episode, you’ll hear interview excerpts from:

Jessica Dibb, Director of the Global Breathwork Alliance and Louise’s close friend, who offered Louise spiritual support and wisdom on internal healing. She and Louise speak about their correspondence on these days in the story and the trust that was built between them for Louise to push the boundaries on medical advocacy.

Deidre Provosty Jasmin, Louise’s close college friend and one of the Atlanta Angels, who came to visit Louise as Archer was undergoing another complicated surgery. She and Louise speak about the story behind the rosary Dede pulled out of her purse, and the powerful moment of prayer in the hospital waiting room.
