I apologize for not being able to send out both a January & February newsletter. Many of you know that I have been struggling with Spinal Stenosis and Sciatica for about the last 7-8 months. Years ago, when I heard someone else speak about their sciatic pain, I had no idea the extent of their suffering. Now, I know, up close and personal. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, not even Donald Trump…lol! The thing is, and most of you know me, I do not take pain meds. I prefer the natural route, a holistic approach to healing. But I realized that sometimes, I need a little extra help and so I will be undergoing surgery on February 13th to clean out and repair my spine and relieve this pain.
I suppose I am more concerned about my recovery than my current, extreme levels of pain. What you don’t know is that I moved into my office space back in October 2017. My recovery (of 3 to 6 months) will most likely be spent here in this space if I can still work. If not, that is another story and I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it. I still plan to open my new counseling & wellness center as soon as I raise enough funding, hense, my GoFundMe campaign. A two family home or one family converted into a wellness center on the first floor and a forever home for me on the second floor. Once again, I am asking for your donation of $5, $10 or more to help me achieve my goal and have a place to recover in good health. A much larger donation has gift incentives attached, so maybe consider a larger donation as well. You can review those incentives on the GoFundMe page.
This Intentional Wisdom is more of an acknowledgement and acceptance of how frail humans really are, of how frail I am. I have been so blessed throughout my life, even with all my challenges and struggles. I have followed my own advice with regard to being mindful, being in the present and meditating daily. I do a lot of inner work, I pray, I watch my thoughts, and I analyze my growth on a daily basis. I ask, ‘Am I doing what I teach others to do? Am I living how I teach others to live? Am I staying on the path of Ascension in consciousness?
I am and I do practice what I preach or teach, but sometimes it’s hard. I’m sure you know how hard staying the path can be. Still, I do it. With all the pain and the struggle of my circumstances I find myself, at times, doubting the powers at work in my life, but I quickly, and I mean really quickly, recover from all that self-doubt. I remember that I am a divine being, a daughter of the All That Is. And that all the pain and all the struggle presents itself to assist me to grow and evolve. I also know that we are all divine beings on a path to Ascension in divine consciousness. We all have our struggles and challenges. I have spent most of my life helping others to relieve their pain and suffering. Now, I am asking you to help relieve mine. Please make a donation today.
I thank you with all my heart and soul. And I pray for each of you, every single day. I ask that you might keep me in your healthy thoughts & prayers as I undergo this extensive surgical procedure and recovery. Only thoughts & emotions of light and healing please. I do not need pity or sympathy, just healing and wholeness! For this I am grateful. And I am grateful for your donation today!
Peace & Many Blessings!
