I made a decision that I would not allow fear to rob me of my peace. Whenever I thought about my new health issues, I said “I choose LOVE.” I said it constantly! It really worked because I didn’t lose my peace and even felt detached from it all, which was truly a miracle.
What could have caused Larry and I to be in a state of worry and panic choosing LOVE kept us centered and peaceful. It all started when I asked my doctor to do some blood tests because I was feeling more tired than usual. I have a history of anemia and thought for sure that I was anemic again.
In my prayer about the upcoming visit with the doctor, Spirit said, “Trust in me always, knowing everything has been planned so there is no need to worry or obsess. Just accept and let go. DO NOT LET THE DOCTOR PUT FEAR INTO YOU. She will make it worse than it is so it is important for you to stay calm and not buy into it. Stay centered knowing I am with you and all is well.”
I wasn’t alarmed when the nurse called a few days later and” asked me to come in to see the doctor because I thought she would be treating me for anemia.
I kept remembering what Spirit had said to me before my appointment, “Stay calm and centered and don’t let the doctor put fear into you.” As she looked over my blood/ labs tests, I could tell that it was more than anemia.
She said, “Your white blood cell count is higher than it should be and your platelets are very high. I recommend you see a hematologist /oncologist.” I was stunned and said, “Why would I see an oncologist and what are they looking for?” She said, “We want to rule out cancer. We will call the oncologist and make a referral today.”
To say that I was in shock would be an understatement. Just hearing the word cancer and that they wanted to rule it out left me speechless. I left the office in a daze, wanting to break down and cry. I didn’t want to call Larry and tell him the news over the phone.
When I got to my car, I breathed deeply to calm myself down. I had to talk to someone so I called my daughter, Mary, to tell her the news. Thankfully, she calmed me down and didn’t allow me to escalate it. I don’t remember what she said, but I felt better and was able to center myself. Of course, when I shared the news with Larry, he was concerned, but very supportive and loving. In prayer and meditation, here is what I affirmed for myself:
Iwill trust and delete worry and fear.
I will stay centered, calm, and peaceful.
I will accept what is.
I will have faith that all is well.
I will stay positive and see only perfect health for myself.
I will choose LOVE instead of fear.
Larry and I both felt strongly that Spirit was giving us the opportunity to choose LOVE instead of fear and we promised each other to choose LOVE when we felt afraid. When I prayed about it Spirit said, “You are choosing LOVE and when you choose LOVE, there is no fear. Fear is an illusion and fear and worry are a waste of energy. Your faith will carry you through. Ego will try to rob you of your peace so be aware of your thoughts and what comes up.”
Thankfully, I was able to get an appointment with the oncologist within a few days. I knew in my heart that I didn’t have cancer. Larry came with me for my appointment and we were both very peaceful and and even laughed in the car when I didn’t know the doctor’s name. I knew the address and I had his telephone number. Of course, when we arrived at the office, his name was on the board and there wasn’t a problem.
You can imagine the relief and joy we felt when the doctor looked at us and said, “You don’t have cancer.” God is good! I may have an infection in my body that is causing inflammation around heart and platelets to be high, which doctor reassured me is treatable. I appreciate your prayers as I move through this health challenge. I see myself as healed, whole and healthy.
I share this with you to encourage you to choose LOVE instead of fear. It doesn’t have to be a health issue, but can be anything in your life that you are fearful about and robbing you of your peace.
Love is all there is.
