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.

Dearest Brit,

All our love,

Im glad to see that she has morphine to use in case of pain. So important for all sakes, since pain takes far too much physical and emotional energy of people in her condition. Its most often only in the last hours of the endstage, when people have becomed totally unconcius and the breathing is very weak , we can wonder if constant morphine injection may have helped the process along. But usually the doses are calculated for not doing so.

Hugs and good luck to you both Brit ♥

I'll keep on sending good vibes, energy and prayers your way

May strength be with you

when you reach the end of your rope , tie a knot in it and hang on

Default Morphine

There are so many misconceptions about morphine. It is an old med that is so valuable for comfort measures. In Florida I had Haitian caregivers who put black voodoo beads under the pillows of those given morphine because they believed those patients to be marked for death.....morphine is very, very often given to relieve air hunger....not pain...because it relieves the increased heart rate from lack of oxygen because as one dies the lungs fill with fluid and it relieves the feeling of drowning. It is a wonderful drug for easing the transition....not because it causes it. Just FYI

So - just letting you know that I'm continuing my prayers for all of you during this transition.

Much love,

Default Prayers for Sister Lura

Rather than posting over this important, love and light filled thread for BJ, I thought I would just add to it a prayer/healing request for Sister Lura.

As some of you know she has been having a hard time since taking a fall a few months ago and fracturing some vertebrae.
Since that last prayer request there have been some different developments and they are putting her through a battery of tests this week as they suspect that cancer may be present and the source of her intense pain. They should have some results/answers by the beginning of next week.

She is a little shy about asking for herself and so she has given me permission to place this request.
She has great faith in the healing power of this group.
