Ting made a living summoning the darkness.
As the local Shaman, villagers in her surrounding area of northwest China would seek her out for the wisdom of the spirits. And their requests were many—
- Who should I marry?
- What must I do to be successful?
- What does my future hold?
- Why am I sick?
- Have I offended the spirits?
Ting delighted in her success. Word of her abilities drove thousands of the curious and desperate to seek her divine counsel, which she was eager to give. But only for a price.
And then the spirits demanded a price of their own…
The dream that changed…EVERYTHING
Without warning, Ting’s health started to deteriorate. In just over the course of a few days, she was bed-ridden and completely paralyzed. Her illness perplexed doctors. No one had any answers, and they were running out of time. Every passing moment could be Ting’s last.
She couldn’t even speak of her agony. Or her fear of death, which seemed inches away and creeping closer.
