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.

Default Prayer request from Sean for his friend Ernie...

Sean was more concerned today with this request for his friend, Ernie, than for himself. Ernie is a Viet Nam Vet who had a motorcycle accident and is in the facility where Sean is - both of them recovering. Sean has become close with him as well as his son Zack, who is around Sean's age. Well, yesterday, Ernie learned from his physician that he has prostate cancer caused from Agent Orange and the doctor has given him two years to live.

Sean asked him if we could ask our healing prayer friends at sm.com for prayers and loving intentions. He agreed to receive from us. So, here we are requesting prayers and healing intentions for his friend, Ernie.

Thanking you all for your participation. We all know that miracles abound and no diagnosis is written in stone.

So let's lift Ernie up and intend for his highest good.

Love, Deb

Hello Deb,

Putting Ernie and his family into the circle of prayer, hope, light and love to all of you at the beginning of this Labor Day weekend, hope that all of you get to have some 'R&R' that you certainly deserve, with every blessing.

Love,
Di

Thank you all so very much for your participation in our lives. It is truly wonderful to be able to share with you what we are experiencing.

Fridays have become very special for me and Sean. I get off work at 12:30 pm and go pick up our eats. For him - 2 fried burritoes with a corned dog. For me - a quarter b-b-q chicken and fries. Then we sit in his room and eat off of his table bed - him in his wheelchair and me perching on the side of his bed. There, while eating, we share our thoughts and just appreciate being together. Today he told me that yes, he hopes that Dr. Nana can save his foot but he also knows that he has to accept if he can't. And, he said, "We will deal with whatever we need to deal with." I smiled and said, "Yes, exactly, just like we have done this whole year. All will be okay. I told him that "acceptance" of "what is" is life's greatest gift of bliss. When we remove resistance, so do we remove our anguish. And when we do, therein opens up a whole new world to be blessed further. Just like we have seen throughout this year." He shook his head in agreement. We both breathed a heavy sigh and smiled.

So, we continue to live in gratitude each day and acceptance for "what is". The Serenity Prayer always comes up for us and never ceases to cover all that we need to address.

"God grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change.
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference."

Again, we are blessed.

As always, thanking you all for your continued efforts to send loving healing energies our way and to Ernie and his family as well. Those precious energies work miracles all along the way.

As well, I am so loving my job and my employer and now that Uncle Don has joined us, there are lots of smiles everyday. I have to say - Life is Good - Belief Becomes. We are the living proof of that.

Blessings to all of you and thank you for your continued support on our Journey.

Love, Deb

Default Dear Deb and Sean,

Hello again, you two. I hope all is well. Looks like we have another hurdle ahead, doesn't it. I don't suppose you ever get used to them. I was hoping for a breather for you two. Let's pray that Dr. Nana has good news this time. Either way, I know you and Sean have the strength to get thru whatever comes. You've made it this far, and that's a miracle. It has been such a bumpy ride with no complaining on your parts. I'm proud to call you friends.

We have another Friday night coming up already, so you two will have that special time.... I chat with my own Mom on Tuesdays and Thursdays and know how special time with your mom can be. I wish I had contact with my own son so we could have some special times too, but I get to live vicariously thru you, Deb, with Sean, so I have a sense of a mother-son relationship.

There are several of us out here who have lost a son one way or another and are living your experience of each other. You do such a wonderful job of keeping us posted, Deb. Thank you so very much. I don't think you know how much it means to everybody to see such a healthy relationship portrayed so openly. It's almost like reading a very good novel, except it's real life and that adds so much to the whole experience.

So. Sending you love and light and healing energy. Take care. Love, C.

Default Wow!!!

Wow!!! Today was a real zinger, in a sense, that I just realized as I now sit in the peaceful abode that I have created for myself. Hmmmm, let me tell you about it, shall I?

First of all, thank you all for your lovely responses and also thank you to those who just read these posts, your energies encircle us as well and I am so grateful.

Now, back to today's happenings. Beginning with my employer. She began to share with me that she is always worrying about everything. Well, that just opened the door for me to tell her of my experiences, especially in the last year with Sean and my coming back to Ft. Worth and how I simply had to trust in today and not be worried about tomorrow. More or less, it was something like that. And it has worked. She was smiling when I said, "If I can do it, you can." She agreed with a smile on her face. Then, I gave her some more information that contributed to her just trusting in today and letting it happen.

Then I went to see Sean and took him a new Friday afternoon treat. OMG, if you live in Texas, you will know what DQ Steak Finger Basket is. YUM!!!! Anyway, we had a nice meal and Sean made a comment, "I am sick of being here." Well, my response to that was, "Well, Sean, you need to get rid of that thought because what if I had that thought throughout this year with you? Where would we be?" He brightened right up and said, "Pretty sad." I agreed.

Then I discussed with him how when negative thoughts come into my head, I instantly, stop them. I verbally say to myself, "Stop it! Let's get back to today. What do I have to be grateful for in this day? Are my needs met in this day? And I always have to answer, "Yes". Then, that is all I need to be concerned with - simply TODAY!

So, I take a deep breath and smile for my abundance and blessings and I know when I do that, that is the energy that I send out into the Universe, and likewise, I know that is what I will receive back.

That is what I have learned.

Then, today when I come home, my nextdoor neighbor comes over and tells me of her plights and I again begin to interject her with the energies that are soaring through me to share. And she says, this is exactly what she needs is for me to remind her that she is blessed everyday and that she can overcome anything that comes her way.

So, I got a triple dose today of sharing and it has so replenished me that I am bursting at the seams, literally. ahahahha!!!

And all three of these people said to me, "Please keep reminding me of this so I can get through this like you have." And I said, "I will do so, that is why I am here at this moment in your life, to remind you. And in the doing so, I am reminding myself to continue in what works for me."

So, there you go, again, we are shown that we are in this together to help each other.

And, in this moment, I feel so blessed, so totally blessed to be sharing. Because, in sharing, we uplift each other and help each other to be the best we can be.

Never falter from asking for help. We are here to help each other.

My love and blessings to you all, Deb

Default Dear Deb,

What wonderful opportunities for sharing you have had. I am so happy that you are happy. Love is a gift that grows bigger by giving it away....

I can understand Sean's wish to move on, believe me, but as you counselled me many times, when the time is right, things will change. My circumstances changed for the better, just as you and Peg said they would, even tho I was doubtful once in awhile. You kept me hanging in there just as you are keeping Sean and your boss and your neighbor hanging in there. You are an outstanding example of practicing what you preach. Ok. I am out of cliches now.

Keep up the good work, Deb. The world needs you. Sending you and Sean and Peg love and healing energy. Have a great day. Love, C.
