|From revelation to fulfillment
Bruce Anderson is a medical scientist, former president of the Eden Foundation, wounded healer, masters swimmer, composer and singer-songwriter who performs for human rights causes. Bruce graduated phi beta kappa, cum laude from UC Irvine with a B.S. degree in biology and pursued the Ph.D. in medical science at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. Bruce was knocked out of his traditional career due to an occupational illness, with the following story describing his journey on the path of the wounded healer.
While at UC Irvine in 1983, I had the prophetic dream that would shape the events of my life and career. At the time, I was taking a course on the psychology of dreaming and reading the autobiography of the Swiss psychiatrist and mystic, Carl Jung, M.D. After a series of precognitive dreams, the following dream predicted the events that took place between 2003 and 2006.
In the opening scene of the dream, I was lying on a gurney in a hospital emergency room with a team of doctors and nurses frantically working on me, who then stopped abruptly and turned away. A friend of mine then held defibrillator paddles up to the medical team and asked the question, "Who's going to do this?"
The doctors and nurses bowed their heads in shame, indicating they knew they couldn't help me. Then my friend turned to me and asked, "Are you going to do this?"
In the next scene, I was sitting in the passenger seat of an ambulance, meditating upon a mysterious black box with my spiritual physiology lit up like a Christmas tree. Then in the last scene, I was flying in a state of joy, as if propelled by a wave of energetic water over a forested mountain with a lake while surrounded by my studio music equipment.
I interpreted the dream to mean that for my career, I would participate in traditional, emergency-based, western medicine, yet would bring my knowledge of physics and spirituality to bear upon the most difficult challenges in medicine.
In 1984, I moved to the San Jose area for a year and recognized the Lexington Reservoir off of I-17 in the forested Santa Cruz mountains as the location portrayed in my "life dream." I then returned to UC Irvine to finish my undergraduate degree.
While applying to medical school and working in a lab at the Indiana University/Purdue University medical center at Indianapolis in 1989, I experienced a spiritually oriented revelation that included the final unified field theory in physics with medical ramifications.
The following year in 1990, I constructed the technology envisioned as the black box in my 1983 life dream in response to further visions I had around the time of the passing of the young AIDS victim, Ryan White, in Indianapolis. I composed the song, "The Power of Light," placed the lyric on Ryan's grave and promised him that I would one day make an impact on the AIDS epidemic with the new medical technology that emerged from my vision and his inspiration. I then opted for the Ph.D. to prepare to spearhead the biophysics revolution.
Moving to the culmination of my life dream, my photo page reveals the literal fulfillment that occurred. In 2003, I experienced two Vioxx-induced heart attacks inflicting congestive heart failure, which the doctors could not cure, as the dream predicted. After three years of living on disability, I reconstructed my biophysics device and treated myself for the physician-inflicted heart disease.
To objectively demonstrate my recovery, my first swimming meet back after my near death experience was on the UC Santa Cruz Campus. In my life dream, this rebirth was symbolized by flying in a state of joy propelled by water over the Santa Cruz Mountains.
My medical technology is based on the biophysics properties of water. As symbolized by the studio equipment, I'm using my music to promote my story of revelation, fulfillment, near death, healing and empowerment. Watch for my documentary, "The Voice of Water - A Wounded Healer's Journey."
