Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

We've had a set back today! Sean had to go back to the hospital. It appears that the weaning off the catheter has aggravated the UTI and now the infection seems to have gone into the kidneys and he is in a great deal of pain. Bless his heart, he was doing so well. He even got to go to a semi-pro football game here in Ft. Worth on Sunday where one of his friends plays. He had such a great time, so glad to get out of the nursing/rehab facility for a few hours and he said he felt like he was back in high school.

Ahhh, please surround him with your loving healing energies, lifting him up to his highest good.

I have another request concerning my employer and friend, Carroll. She just learned from an MRI that she has a spot on her lung. She will be going to see a specialist on Friday. I told her that we would get our prayer circles going for her. She agreed and is receptive to healing energies.

So, I am asking for a double dose of your wonderful energies coming our way. I know that we have all witnessed many miracles here and know that there are a lot more to come.

Thanking you all for your continued loving healing energies.

Love, Deb

Default Oh goodness, Deb.

I am so sorry to hear this, both for Sean and for Carroll. And you too! You could use a break....

I am sending warm, healing energy and light to Sean and Carroll, and a big hug to you, dear one. Praying for the highest good of all, as you would say.

I will continue to wait for progress updates, hearing that all is well.

Love, C.

As always, we may have bad moments but not bad days.

As it turns out, Sean did not have to go to the hospital. His caregiver's were able to get the in-house doctor to order mega anti-biotics for him and to put him on a PRN pain meds.

Today, I walked in and he was sleeping. I spoke to his roommate, Don, and Sean's eyes came open at my voice and I asked, "Are you hungry?" He then proceeded to sit up in bed and said, "Yes, ma'am!" It was good to see him smile. So, again, we are going through the healing of the bladder and kidneys so that we can get back to the weaning. And throughout the all of this, the most important thing is the joy in bringing Sean and his roommate, Don, "real food" to eat as they call it.

After 18 months, it doesn't seem to get any easier but it does seem to go in some kind of pattern that we can hold on to in some way. We just know that we may have a bad moment but that it doesn't necessarily indicate a bad day. So, we attempt to make the best of every moment.

There are so many different people's perceptions that affect Sean's experience. Keeping up with and dealing with that has been an amazing feat in itself. Attempting to get everyone on the same page seems to be my greatest agenda. But, hey, I have gotten really good at it. I now push through a lot of bullshot and just get right to the point. And if someone cannot hear me, I just hang up and go on to the next one. I have learned, there are those who can actually listen and respond. Those that can't, I don't waste my time on, because they have no clue and never will. Blessing them on their way.

So, here we are just appreciating all that we have and all that we have come through and are going through. Knowing that we will always come out on top of it all.

Thanking you all for your continued support in our journey of healing.

Love you all,
Deb

Deb,

I want you to know that you and Sean have my full support and faith. My experience reading this entire thread last week for the first time filled me with many emotions. I confronted some of my own fears around not being in control of everything (or anything) and whether or not anyone would be there for me just as you have been there for your son and the people of this community have been here for you both. I see this thread as a gift.

As you know, my journey over the past five years or so has been to dive into the unconscious - personal and collective - to make myself more whole. The word heal comes from the same place as whole.

This thread, in my opinion, seems to represent an enormous amount of unconscious power directed towards you, Sean, Peg, your medical team, roommates etc... And I believe you don't take that point lightly. Your gratitude shows tremendous awareness of the benefits of such power and such gifts.

But there is one thing that concerns me about these divine forces that are invoked. I merely wish to state my concern. So, with all humility, I submit this concern with love and care for you to take what resonates and leave the rest. Even as I write this I ask myself: Is it helpful? Is it necessary? Is my heart in it?

These forces can be seductive and attractive enough to hook us in. And when we are hooked, we're unaware of the impact of our actions on others as these forces are driving the bus. They have no morality in terms of good or evil. Their power can be directed either way and sometimes both at the same time. I state this knowing I am capable of being hooked and causing harm unconsciously. And that is where my concern lies in posting this thread. When I work with my unconscious my best tool (not weapon) to work with it is to "put it in front of me."

I will say no more about this on the thread. I believe you know how to ask for what you want and what you need - and have every right to do that here without judgment.

Just know that I am your friend, I love you, I love Sean and I love everyone who has put energy towards helping you and your team. And you can depend on me for anything I am able to give to you.

Love and light,

Rick

Thank you, my dear friend, for your forthright thoughts here. I am totally honored that you would share this with me, with us. Your words have triggered a couple of things in me that I wish to share with you.

The very first thing, when you spoke about the divine forces being invoked, was an experience I had back in 2003 on the ranch in Northern New Mexico. It was an experience that certainly changed my "view" on a lot of things. Let me share it with you.

One night, I was awakened in the wee hours of the morning, not by sound but by a sense of a presence. I got out of bed and ventured to the living area where this "unseen energy" seemed most prominent to my feel. I immediately stated "out loud" without hesitancy or question but with a calm reserve, "You do not have my invitation to come into my home unannounced. If you wish to commune with me, then you will knock on my door and ask my permission. You do not come into my home without my permission. Now, go!"

It was like the air being let out of a balloon. Whoosh! And the unseen, uninvited energy was gone. I felt no fear, only a sense of ownership of my being and I nodded my head and went back to bed and slept peacefully.

As I have come to know, No one or No thing can take my power away unless "I" allow it. And that has not changed for me and I don't believe it ever will.

This beautiful Universe that we occupy has many facets to discover. Fear is the basis of all complaints. In my knowing that I am an eternal being, I have no fear nor complaints. Albeit that comes from my Near Death Experience in 1994 wherein I was treated to the All Knowing, All Loving "All That Is" Experience of Being One with Everything - the Totality of Communion in the essence of pure Bliss. So, I know first hand what exists one instant from me now. I am simply walking through this Life for the Pure Experience of All Things. And in that knowing, that I can only take with me, what I have given of me. Simple is that, it is.

I cherish this life experience with respect for all in whom I have come in contact with to help teach me what is available to learn on this plane of experience. And, as always, Love is the prominent factor.

Consciousness breeds Intention. Intention breeds Wanted Outcome. Wanted Outcome would be Peace in every circumstance. And yes, that varies for everyone what that might be.

So, the bottomline seems to be the creation of one's own experience to define what one most wants to exact in this occurance of energies.

Loving you as always,
Deb

Default Sean to Walk Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sean's Orthopedic Surgeon gave him permission today to "bear weight on his right foot"! So, they are ordering him a boot cast for protection and as soon as that comes in, Sean will be taking his first steps in 18 months....

Now that he will be able to stand, the Prosthetic Doctor can measure him for a prosthesis for his left leg. So, they will be constructing that for him. And hopefully in the next month or so, Sean will be able to walk through our front door.

Of course, we are both so excited today. One phase completed and another beginning. Hopefully, if all works out, he will be able to come home on "Good Friday" and be home for Easter!!!! I think that would be a very appropriate event for Sean to "Rise Up" as well...isn't that interesting????

So, on this day, our gratitude is great! Can there be degrees of gratitude? I don't know how to say it because we are grateful everyday but today is distinguished because there seems to be a completion of one phase and now we are entering another phase of our journey.

Thanking you all for keeping us in your prayers and intentions and intending for our highest good. For certainly, if you have followed this thread, you know of all the miracles that have occurred to get us to here.

I will be posting a separate thread for my friend and employer, Carroll. Thank you all for including her in your prayers and energy work.

So loving all of you,
Deb and Sean

Default Deb and Sean

My dearest friend,
I can hardly believe what I am reading!

I remember a year and a half ago....

Receiving a phone call one evening out of the blue; a phone call
that has to be one of the most devastating and heartbreaking
calls a mother can receive.

I remember a year and a half ago...

Hurridily packing a few bags and leaving in the wee hours of the
morning; driving 13 hours straight through; arriving at the hospital
at 9 pm where Sean was taken into the first of many surgeries
which lasted over 7 hrs; and the suspended sense of time as we
sat in that waiting room; each with our own thoughts; each deep
in our own meditation and prayers.

I remember a year and a half ago...

You and I standing on each side of Sean's bed in the Intensive Care
Unit, him barely conscious, all four limbs and his head swathed in
bandages, machines blinking and beeping, IV units dripping much needed
meds and fluids...

I remember a year and a half ago...

The meetings with the doctors and nurses and patient support staff
who spoke truthfully with no sugar coating; witnessing the tender
vigilant care of the doctors and nurses at Harris focused on his
recovery.

And in the ensuing year and a half...

I have witnessed the deep inner strength within you that even you
didn't know was there; and despite those moments of feeling down,
tired, stressed, you focused on allowing your inner Light & Love to
shine forth in support and encouragement to Sean every step of the
way. When you needed help, you were brave enough to ask for it,
and many in this community answered that call with the Love and
Light within their own hearts, and continue to do so.

And now, with the latest news you just posted, Sean and you and
all of us have been blessed and gifted with a steady and progressive
recovery that was so difficult to imagine a year and a half ago!

My heart weeps with joy and gently smiles as I recall one of your
favorite mantras ... Life Is Good, and Belief Does Become!

Namaste...Peg

Sweetpea,

Your lovely words have filled a place in me that needed to be filled. I am ever so grateful for your loving care and your always knowing. Indeed, your Spirit knows my Spirit oh so well. I am so grateful for my best of friends.

Love you dearly,
