Embracing your vibrations!
 
Hello to all my wonderful friends here on sm.com. Again, I am requesting your attention in Sean's regard. Yesterday, he had a freak accident in his wheelchair that resulted in the breaking of his leg - the femur right above his knee. His therapist came to get him to take him to physical therapy. She asked if he wanted the leg extension on his wheelchair, he declined. He had his heavy boot cast on his right leg and she was pushing him rapidly down the hall, they were talking when Sean let his leg drop and the boot caught on the floor and instantly pulled his leg back under the wheelchair and pop, pop, pop!!!! He screamed in agony!!! Yes, broke his femur right above the knee!!!

He is in the hospital and they did a cat skan today. Dr Nana will determine the next step from the results, where that be surgery or setting it.

Anyway, Sean and I discussed looking for the "Silver Lining" in this experience. We thought that if Dr Nana does surgery, maybe he could make adjustments on the knee so that Sean could have more range in motion.

We had a wonderful discussion today about how much easier it is on me when Sean has a positive attitude. He said he tried to imagine what it would be like for me if he had a bad attitude. We discussed how "We Are Loved" and that "All is Well". We agreed that after going through all that we have, that there is nothing that we cannot overcome. We agreed that we are in this life to learn and grow in our knowing that there is nothing that we cannot overcome.

What a beautiful experience we are having together. My son has taught me so very much about overcoming pain. I told him today how very proud I am of him for his courage and his strength, but mostly for his positive attitude. He thanked me for my positve attitude. He said that he had tried to imagine me dealing with him if he had a bad attitude. I told him that I couldn't handle it, I probably wouldn't be around very much or for very long.

I am so very proud of my son for being the best that he can be in this moment. I read him some of the book today that Kata sent to him, "The Fifth Agreement". It helped him to close his eyes and rest. Then he said, "That is really good." We would recommend it to anyone.

Anyway, my lovely beings, thank you for continuing to hold us in your favor and lend us your loving energies. We so most appreciate it. We will be just fine because of that.

Love you all,
Deb

Hello Deb,

What can I say, thank you for having the courage, stamina and perception of a Saint, you are inspiring. Energies and light for you and Sean to continue your enlightening journey through the health care system, and thank you for keeping the faith in SM.com, et al. Every Blessing, the light will come.

Love,
Di

Thank You All!
 
Again, thank you all for your participation in our healing journey. Sean does not have to have surgery at this time on the broken femur. It is aligned correctly for healing, so they will take x-rays weekly and send to Dr. Nana to make sure there is no "shifting". If there is shifting, he will do surgery to realign. When this heals, then Dr. Nana is going to do a knee replacement which should enable Sean to have more mobility in his knee which will assist in his walking. So, this is what we are looking at as the "Silver Lining". Dr. Nana was able to see that Sean has developed arthritis in that knee making it impossible for him to bend the knee enough to walk on it.

Anyway, Sean is now back at the facility with a long brace cast on his leg and he does have to use the leg extension on his wheelchair. His spirits are up and he is doing well.

Again, thank you all so very much for your continued support.

Love you all,
Deb

Deb, I agree with Di,
 
and you should be nominated for sainthood! When you told me of Sean's accident, I was so sorry for you both.... It has so been one thing after another. But thru each thing you look for the best, as if each incident were a blessing in disguise. Your positive attitude, your optimistic outlook, are lessons for the rest of us. I, for one, really appreciate my life, thanks in large part to how you help me see it, the beauty of it, the value. We don't have to let even big problems knock us off our feet, but if they do, just get back up again. Examine what you learned from that and go on. Thank you, my friend, for being the ever-shining example of how to live happily. I treasure every moment I have known you. Love, C.

I so totally agree with what you have said here. We are here to learn and grow. How else could we do that unless there were obstacles along our way to overcome? And here we are, overcoming all of them with the grace and love in union. That is what this life experience is all about. We are not here on a 'Free Ride". We chose to have this experience. Well, at least that is my perception. All will have their own perceptions and all will be complete within themselves for that time. For me, I know I am here to experience all things so as to develop my best self response to all things. I am aware of that, therefore, I am proceeding along those lines.

In honor of all who wish to "know" themselves.

Love, Deb

Update with Sean T.
 
Sean is laughing and joking and having a good 'ole time in his situation. He is making the best in his circumstance. And I am so very proud of him. He is sending loving healing energy to his uncle instead of worrying about him. It is amazing the difference when we "choose" to be in a positive mode and how that effects, not only ourselves, but those that we are sending energy to. I so realized that I can't send positive loving healing energies to someone if I am "worried" about them. So, I have to choose if I want to be of benefit to another or a detrement. If I worry about someone, I am sending them negative energy and they are picking that up.

We are all vibrational energy beings and thoughts are energy. I have "so" learned this. I so "know" this now.

So, I am ever conscious of what "thoughts" I am sending to others.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and loving intentions.

Love,
Deb

Update on Sean...
 
Sean continues to find the good in everyday. When the questions come, the doubts, the wonders, we get through them together. For we all need to express, share and work our way through the muck and mire. And then, we pop through for another breath of fresh air!!!! We find something more to be grateful for and go on from there. That is what gets us through the trying times. Together we lift each other up!!! that is what it is all about - helping each other....

Laughter is such a good healer. The more laughter, the better off we all are. It is good to find the fun in everything. It makes it, whatever it is, more workable, doeable and leaves us with a sense of accommplishment of another day well done.

We continue to look for our best self and to know that WE ARE LOVED and ALL IS WELL.

Next month will be two years.

Love you all for hanging in there with us.
Deb

For Deb
 
Good to feel your upbeat energy today! And it is heartwarming to know that Sean is in such good spirits and doing so well at this time. Still quietly hanging in there with you dear ones.

I haven't been on Shirley's forum for a while now, but I've just got up-to-date on this thread, and I am inspired! ShirleyMaclaine.com was my first internet foray into spirituality, and there are many good people here. Another site I would recommend is goldenageofgaia.com and it's accompanying Yahoo Discussion Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/GoldenGaia. I suggest when you sign up to choose Daily Digest or No Mail (where you would just check messages on the site). There are so many messages that Individual mails would just clog your inbox. Messages are available at http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/GoldenGaia/conversations/messages after you become a member but you must be logged in to view messages.

Thanks to all the wonderful people everywhere, and:

We Are Together, We Are One. :)

I am a Light Spark of Infinite Love, and you are too!
-Steven.

EDITED: With new Yahoo Groups direct web-links.
