While at the grocery store I received a phone call from my Step-mom telling me my Dad was in the hospital, and it was about his heart. As energy pulsed through me my first reaction was the need to rush to the hospital. Then a feeling of great calm came over me, I felt a knowing that my Dad was going to be okay. I remember thinking, “The Universe has him.” I still felt driven to be there for my family; nothing was more important and I cleared my schedule. Healing energy was already flowing.
In the calm I felt as though I were floating in this experience. As I floated I sensed the reality of possibly losing my Dad. I told myself, “I have the courage; I will do this. I will continue to step forward, releasing my burden and focusing on healing energy.”
What was most challenging was seeing Dad. His short-term memory was affected and he was in so much pain. After surgery, as the anesthetic wore off, he kept asking, “Where am I?” and “What’s going on?” I’ve always seen my Dad as the head of the family. He was always a strong and fearless leader. Now I was seeing him as a human, a fragile being. I had to ask myself, “Do I have the courage to go on without him when that time comes?”
The outpouring of love, sympathy and healing from friends was amazing and deeply appreciated. All the love and healing coming our way was something I could feel. I know it helped us through this experience. I know it helped my Dad. I was overwhelmed with the validation that I am never alone!
We are never, ever alone. Our God/Universe is always there for us. Our friends and family are not only our support, they are the bridges connecting us all.
