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!
