Please Help--But Don't Pray Unless... From Ren'ai

Hello to all,

My mom was admitted to the ICU yesterday, quite suddenly. It appears she has a blockage in an artery to her heart and she will need angioplasty or a bypass. On top of this, night before last my daughter took a razor blade after her leg and sliced it up pretty bad, about 15 cuts. She has done this before and has been in mental health treatment twice already.

I want prayer/meditation from people here. All I ask is that you "pray" for whatever's right to "be" in these situations. What is right may not be what I want, but that doesn't matter to me. I think it's important for the lives of my mother and daughter to be closely held in the hands of the higher powers. Who am I to direct how this should be done?

I suppose I'm not being realistic or considerate to tell others what to pray either, so please pray as your heart and higher power guides you.

Thank you very much.

Love to all,

Ren'ai

Hi Ren'ai

Sorry to hear about your mother being in the hospital. I will pray for her that all will go well and she will gain her strength back quickly.

And I am sorry to hear about your daughter and she muct be in real pain as well. I am glad you have taken good steps with counseling for her. I know you are a good mother and will be there for her through all of this.

As for asking exactly what you want in prayer. The Bible says to be specific in what you seek and to be deligent about it. I am not sure what verse or chapter, but I believe that is what it says. Perhaps MamaC can help out here with references?

I know that many church and temple groups also pray as a group for one and many. There is strength in numbers. And prayer is not just a one shot deal, sometimes we have to keep at it. But I know it works. Meditation and sending out good thoughts works also, but don't ask me how that works. Life is a mystery and we have so few answers.

Letting go of the answers of prayer to your Higher Power is a big step by allowing to be what is meant to be.

Take care of yourself through all of this, okay?

(((Hugs and prayers, Ren'ai))),

Sew

Ren -

Wishing you all the best and hoping that the lessons sent to you at this time are not too much to bear! For your mother and your daughter too! I don't know if you are familar with Ekhart Tolle, but as he says "all we have is this moment and there is nothing wrong in this moment" it is very true if you give yourself the freedom to see it. Much love.

Ren'ai:

I prayed as you wanted for your mom and daughter. I am so sorry for your pain. Also, prayed for you.

In response to Sew. I will be happy to elaborate on what Sew is saying but would ask that you read it in the liberation thread area. Thanks.

It's s strange funny thing when we get our answers to our prayers. It is not always what we want, but more often what is supposted to be.

Last month when my mother in law was taken to the hospital, she was very sick and in alot of pain. Now I don't pray very often, but I did then and asked God to ease her pain, She'd had enough, gone through the cancer thing for 10 years. well the next day she passed away. Not what I was wanting to happen, but she was no longer in pain.

Thank you all for your loving words and support. I have spent the entire day with my boss, who is an extremely cool guy. He is easy to talk to, understanding, and very supportive.

At any rate, I got a call about an hour ago that my mother had been flown to a bigger hospital up north. I didn't even get a chance to see or talk to her before she left! Luckily I have a sister up that way who will be at the "heart" hospital when my mom arrives. My dad and two of my other sisters will make the trip tomorrow, but I will stay home as I feel that I need to be with my daughter right now, and she is not emotionally able to make a trip like this right now.

I feel like crying and crying. I am crying and crying. My boss just left. I'm alone in my office with you all, and it's safe to just let go. I know I'll feel better for it.

I know there must come a time when we all die. As Gandalf says, "It's not an ending, it's a beginning. Death is just another path, one that we all must take." I am just not ready to say good-bye to my mommy just yet...

Thanks again to everyone.

Love to all,

Ren'ai

Oh Ren'ai, I wish I was with you to give you this..

((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))))))

Pain like you are going through is meant for the good honey and it seems like you are receiving more than your share right now. There is a belief by that higher power that you are able. I believe it too.

Close your eyes today and think of beauty and peace. I saw bird prints n the snow the other day. Can I tell youi how this made me smile? The simplicity the magic the beauty of something we never see but in the snow!! Feel the rare creature you are and believe that strength will be there for you, bestowed from within where youu really exist.

Be calm darlin, feel your strength and take it with you when you walk in your valley of confusion. You will survive this and come out shining!!!!!!

I am sending warm thoughts of love and support for you. Let the angels walk along to lift you!!!

Ren'ai...

First, I will say a prayer for your mother and your daughter.

Second, I want to tell you how much I admire your awesome faith in your Higher Power...to trust in his will, and to know that he is the one who directs all things.

Third, I wish you strength to endure these difficult times.

Thank you all for your loving support. As I write this, my mom is having an angiogram done. It's a procedure where they inject dye into the bloodstream around the heart so they can spot the blockage. If they can, they'll go ahead a do the angioplasty (where the use a little "balloon" to open the blockage) once they find it. If they determine that the angioplasty won't be enough, then they will proceed with a by-pass at a later date.

If you have a moment, please send her your love. She is "under the knife" right now!!!

Love to all,

Ren'ai
