A Relapse of Lyme Disease ~ A Pep Talk From an Angel

picsart_02-19-10-23-16

The light of healing surrounds my aching body

An Angel whispers to me on soft breezes

as the touch of love caresses my face

“There is no pain in God’s World.

Remember who you are and where you came from.

Live from the center of your soul

and listen as your body tells you secrets.

You are safe and you are loved.

You are part of the Divine Whole

and your essence here serves a great purpose.

Learn.

Learn all you can.

Keep your heart wide open

and accept all the gifts,

even when they don’t appear to be

the gifts you would like.

Do not make judgments.

Know that every single event in your life,

from what you consider the mundane

to the truly tragic,

is orchestrated with your highest good in mind.

Walk through the darkness,

and ease the pain with your mind.

Believe in the power that lives inside.

Know that you have the ability to do,

to create,

to become,

whatever you truly set your mind to.

You have created everything.

Once you understand this,

you will stand in your power,

and your creations will no longer reflect

a broken, separated, being,

but will reflect

the true light

of God’s Love.”

Blessitude

Ya gotta love Angels!!

Is it any wonder I can handle this relapse as well as I am when you read this Pep Talk from an Angel?  I honestly believe this, coupled with the help you have all given to me, is the reason that I am as grounded, and loving to myself through this very painful time.  So a big whopping THANK YOU is in order!!! 

I know prayer works.  I also know that our prayers are not always answered the way we would like, or heck, for that matter they may not be answered at all…But that reminds me of a song by Garth Brooks…”Sometimes I Thank God, For Unanswered Prayers.”

We think we know best, but that’s just not always true.  We think we can fight something and always be the victor.  I am learning that life can, and will, throw us curveballs.  The true lesson is that I have the power and the control, and perhaps it’s the ONLY control I do have, to the way I respond.  And my new mantra is, “Respond thoughtfully, never react.”

Thank you all for sharing this journey with me.  I am Blessitude ❤  And to all of you who are walking through your own dark nights, I send you beautiful while healing light tinged with the colors of the rainbow to put a smile on your face.  YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!!!

I had to include the ‘original’ photograph I used and manipulated for all the photos in the series (except this final one of the Angels over the ocean.)  It was in a flower arrangement at Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resort.  I have to say this ‘flower’ creeped me out!!  I had just started the medicine and the bacteria were going crazy in my body, and when I looked at this creepy flower it reminded me of this icky disease.  I never met a flower I didn’t like…I won’t say I don’t like this one but it’s hairy!! 🙂  I’m not positive, but I think it might be “Leucospermum.”

This is the final post in the series:  A Relapse of Lyme Disease

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. Hi Lorrie,

    Hope this note finds you centered and safe and warm and content. I really admire your courage and conviction in putting this series together and I hope the attentiveness of such wise and caring friends speeds the recovery right along. So often I think when we are aspiring to live in accordance with the idea that if we think a certain way we can stand in our power, becoming ill feels like a failure. What an incredible setup, right? I think I’ve seen often enough now that illness very often brings a new doorway, and often this is a doorway that can only be found by living the experiences given. I think when we’re able to trust in this, it lightens the fear, the sense of failure, and invites peace back into the room with us. I think you’ve done that here in these pieces, and I send my love.

    Love
    Michael

    1. Oh, Michael. I know you understand this from a personal place and I agree with you. I would never wish to suffer but I am certain that having this disease and the lessons I have learned by walking with it, have opened me in a way that I can receive the light no matter how much darkness surrounds me. It is a strange feeling to be grateful for suffering, and I would never want to think that I ‘had’ to suffer to BE in this place that has touched my soul. I see it as the impetus, the Genesis, of my journey back to love, my journey back to me.
      Thank you for your beautiful spirit that I have always felt! Sweet blessings to you and yours 💜
