Post Surgery

It's been 2 weeks since my cervical spine surgery. It was and continues to be a lot more than I bargained for. The surgery itself was more complicated, took longer, and when I woke I was in severe pain. I stayed in recovery for 3 hours trying to get the pain under control. I had 3 disk replaced, 4 fusions and a plate. All of this for an injury of which I'm not sure when it occurred. I have a couple of things in mind, one was a fall from a tree house rope when I was 10, the other was a fall from a tree tire swing a couple of years ago. I was standing in the tire being pushed when the rope began to burn my hands and I let go in mid air. I took quite a fall, but I thought I got away with just scrapes and bruises. Who knows?

So many clients, friends, associates that I had spoken to either knew someone who had had my surgery or had it themselves and assured me I would be good as new when I woke up. Wrong, my pain in my shoulders and upper arms has continued, and now I have a scar on my neck to boot. I go to the doctor on Monday. I am praying this is temporary, that my nerves are just inflamed. The recovery period is 2-6 weeks. I think he was being very optimistic with me with the 2 week because I didn't want to take the time off.

My sister, Robin, flew in from Mississippi and spent the first week with me. My friend Frankie, took vacation and took care of me the second week. Now, I'm on my own and the blues have set in. I cry a lot, and think about people I love, and miss in my life. I am also very spirital, and I believe if it's God's will, he will reunite us again when the time is right.

‎"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23 It is my prayer that God will lead me in his path.

Until later...

Tools for Healing a Relationship

How do we love others? Accept them as they are. Allow them to be themselves. Stop trying to change them. Let them take care of their own growth processes. We can’t learn for another. If their behavior is detrimental to us, then we may choose not to be in their presence—and that is fine. We must love ourselves enough not to be brought down by self-destructive people. If we have many negative people in our lives, then we can look to see what pattern there is in us that attracts these people to us.

When we change, we drop our pattern and we become different, the others will also change in the way they relate to our new personalities, or they will leave our lives so that new people who will appreciate us are then able to enter. Whichever way it happens, it is always a positive move for us when we love and accept ourselves.

Another powerful tool for healing all relationships—family, work, casual, or intimate—is “blessing with love.” When someone is doing something to disrupt the harmony of your life, bless them with love. You can do it several ways. You can say, “I bless you with love, and I bring harmony to this situation,” or “I bless you with love, and ‘I’ release you and let you go,” or “I release you to your highest good.”

When we do this consistently, something happens on the unseen side of life, and the situation changes for the better. I have seen this process heal relationships of every type. Bosses have become pleasant, families express love, difficult people leave, intimate relationships become honest. Those of us who have practiced this blessing with love are delighted with the results.

I think we all know to whom this reference is made...

Steel Magnolia - Just By Being You (Halo and Wings)

When a man loves a woman / Michael Bolton

For You...

Unconditional love is the answer to all great questions.

Unconditional love dissolves the emotional charges that create sickness and disease.

Unconditional love heals.

Unconditional love takes you beyond the illusions of space and time and helps you bring whomever you love into your presence .That doesn't mean the physical aspect of the person appears ; rather , unconditional love flows between you and that person and connects your heart and soul with theirs.

Unconditional love isn't limited by the boundaries of time and space that our physical bodies inhabit .It's a state of awakening and enlightenment that gives rise to the answers to all questions. It's our reason for being here in physical form. We're here to learn unconditional love and can find it in bliss or the long and hard way. Either way , we'll learn it because our evolution back to the very source of life is inevitable.

Unconditional love is the fundamental law and the most powerful force in the universe .It's our link to all true healing and our bond with the infinite. It's our mission , purpose , and stairway to the stars.
