I Am – Week 18

We were asked to watch one of two movies.  I chose “I Am” mostly because I had a link to watch it for free.

Tom Shadyac did a superb summary of what is wrong with this world, what is right with this world and what we can do about it.  Sharing, cooperation, collaboration… that is what we need more of in this world.

One of the delights of this movie for me was that David Suzuki was in the documentary… not because I am a huge fan, but because I didn’t know who he was until this morning… and I don’t believe in coincidences.

be a friendI was helping a fellow classmate with his blog (which came out fabulous – check out Mark’s Blog here) and he introduced me to David Suzuki as an environmentalist. He also showed me a friend’s blog… someone who has been building environmentally friendly housing for over 20 years.

Connections… Coincidences… or not?

I hope everyone has had the experience of thinking of an old friend or family member and then running into them for the first time in years… or they call out of the blue.

These are not coincidences… but connections.

The Law of Attraction in motion.

On Thursday, I had the great privilege to participate in a phone conference meant to bring people together who are all working on providing housing to those who have been environmentally injured. There were seven of us invited who are in various stages in our individual projects.

make your goals so bigWhat a gift to be able to share and collaborate. I am I overjoyed with gratitude for the opportunity to meet these people who are walking a similar path and aligned with a similar definite major purpose as my own. I felt such connection with approximately 70 people I have never met before…

As the conference was ending, I was counting my blessings and feeling so thankful…

And the phone rang.

It was a classmate from the MKMMA course, Kristina Jackson who I was looking forward to connecting with.

What a gift connecting with her was! Thank you Carolynn for suggesting we meet! Thank you Kristina for calling… our conversation was a huge help to me. You have done what I am just beginning to do… that is awesome!

I truly am blessed with connections, with people who care, and with life events that may not always seem like blessings… but they always end up being blessings.

Everything happens for a reason!

This week was particularly tough for me because my father was in the hospital since Wednesday because he was having chest pains. They did many tests and determined it is not his heart… but they don’t know what it is that is causing the sharp pains he is having.

My husband had similar sharp pains that sent him to the hospital twice in 2011. The doctors could never figure out what it was… but they determined it was not his heart.

In our case, it was mold in our house.

Since then, I have talked to a toxicologist who says 100% of heart disease is fungal related. I have read several papers that say mold and mycotoxins can cause chest pains.

My father was not open to looking into this earlier this week. I was having a hard time dealing with that… until I let go. I gave myself permission to love my father no matter what he decided to do about his health…

And then, something magical happened.

My father said he would see a doctor that I choose. A doctor that will look into the mold and mycotoxin aspect of health. A doctor that specializes in “Functional Medicine.”

Monday cannot come soon enough so I can get him an appointment. It is time a good health advocate focuses on getting Grampa well so he can spend more quality years with his grandchildren!

    What a week! Thank you for the information on heart disease and mold. Once you let go, your dad opened up. Monday WILL be a joyous day for you and your family. The Universe IS magical and the Law of Attraciton is in overdrive:-)))….As “I AM” expressed through so many interviews, we are innately good. We are community. It’s in our DNA.

    I’m glad everything is starting to work our with your father. And in truth, I can relate to your story (at least to a degree)… Also I just finished watching “I Am” this past week, and was taken back by how much I enjoyed it! Definitely profound and insightful.

    As always, THANKS for your wonderful post and bringing us along on your journey!!

    Really happy to hear that your Dad’s chest pains are not directly heart-related. Great news. Even better that he is now prepared to listen to you and accept your advice. It costs nothing to go, see, and listen to a second opinion. Best of luck there. We watched the ‘other’ I Am movie. It was like having MKMMA acted out before our eyes. All of the right feelings, lessons, teachings, readings were presented – and in the right order. It was an ‘eye-opening’ movie and well worth watching. Your week sounds to have been pretty amazing, too. And you are right. I don’t believe in coincidences, either ! Everything happens for a reason. Karma. Many, many thanks, Heather, for sharing this with us.

    Wonderful blog, Heather! I loved your synchronicities: “These are not coincidences… but connections. The Law of Attraction in motion.” … As I was reading what you wrote about chest pains, I thought of the problems I had in my house when the electric company replaced my old analog meter with a smart meter. One of the things I noticed (after hearing “sounds” … high pitched sound, chirping, etc.) was that my heart raced when I lay down on my bed, but if I lay down on my couch in the living room, I was fine. I knew there was something going on in my house, but didn’t know what … until I discovered the smart meter on the side of my house months later. There’s a lot of info out there on “smart meters, dirty electricity, and EMFs” and the problems they cause.

    Your week is pure demonstration, a fabulous example of the fruit of fidelity to the mkmma experience. You are reaping harvest, and it is a joy to see!

    Heather you have had a busy couple of weeks, have you caught your breath yet? It is amazing when we are doing what we enjoy, we derive comfort from the compass over the clock. What an amazing story about your dad. You let go, gave him freedom to decide his own path, and he turned to you in the process. Dynamic! Always enjoying you thoughts woven in each of your blog posts my friend. What a blessing to be on this journey of growth, discovery, and adventure with you! xoxo

    There within each of us is an invisible thread, I am honored and humbled that I am on this journey with you and the MKMMA community. Thank you Heather! My thoughts and prayers of love for you are still stamped upon my heart. I applaud you as you are an amazing and loving daughter. God has a unending promise and blessing to those who care and honor their parents. Your father’s health will be added to my prayer list. Thank you for being a great teacher!

    Your post reminds me of the age-old saying, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.” I know this from experience! Also, growing up, we were often advised to “let go, and let God.” Letting go, allowing the choice to be made, brought about the desired result. How often we forget this! Thanks for the poignant reminder, Heather!
