A Haiku Sandwich ~ 5/17/15 From Fear to Love




It screams from my mind

crawls out of every pore

fear paralyzes

I know this feeling

I have lived it before

This kind of recognition is not warm and fuzzy

Welcoming home a loved one after a long absence

This is an unwanted traveler amongst the roads of life

The hitchhiker with bad intentions


I will be having surgery this week with general anesthesia.  It is not my first…but it is the first time I have felt fear prior to the surgery.

And fear is not good in any situation.  Then my fear escalated to a full blown panic attack when someone told me a story about how the same operation completely ruined a person’s knee!!  I know she didn’t mean to frighten me…so I had to wonder why it happened.

I realized it was a reality check for me.  I had been waffling between love and fear and I knew this happened so that I could get myself in the perfect loving energy I needed before the surgery.



I completely trust my surgeon and I know that I will have the best possible outcome.  I know this feeling too.  It’s called love and it’s called knowing.  And it’s beautiful!!

Clarity of mind

full of trust, loving kindness

ready to go forth 



Lorrie ❤

  3. That knowing is wonderful, and we can trust it. But we’re in the human form, so fearful thoughts may cross our mind from time to time. We can just let them pass, let them run across the screen, or sit them down in the passenger seat and belt them down as Val says. They have no power when we’re filled with love, and trust the knowing. You’ll do well, Lorrie! Love, Tiny


  4. I’m happy to know that everything turned out okay for you, Lorrie. I get panic attacks triggered by health stuff, too, so I totally know what you were going through. The anxiety is often worse than the problem itself, isn’t it…Warnest wishes – Julie
