Injured knee ligaments
To begin with, I must say, I am a diehard cricket fan. I would do anything for the game. So you know how difficult it is for me to stop myself from playing every now and then.
When I was in college, we used to play regularly at one of our favorite grounds. The place was bountiful as it allowed me to manifest my fielding skills without hurting myself. I must say, I enjoy fielding as much as I love batting. Sometimes I would overdo myself for an impossible catch and field magnificently. Naturally I would gather kudos from all around the field for my unmatched feats.
Anyway, one day while fielding, apparently trying to catch the ball which wasn’t directed towards me, I accidentally twisted my right knee as I fell down crooning in pain. I heard a popping sound as soon as my knee twisted which was soon followed by an excruciating pain. I could barely stand. It hurt like hell. It seemed as if my knee had detached itself from my body. My friends helped me reach my quarter safely.
Someone took me to the doctor the same day and it was there where I discovered I had a broken ligament. Braces, painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs followed. However, the pain that I had to go through was unbearable. I must say those were the ugliest moments in my life.
An orthopedist back home suggested I go for an operation. It entailed a lot of money. I didn’t want my parents to go into a financial crisis because of me, so I started doing a lot of research on the internet. I was happy to find out numerous conventional methods which proved successful in many cases. I decided to follow them and to my surprise I started recuperating quickly. Soon, afterwards I totally forgot about my injury and started walking without that obvious limp. However that pain, which lasted more than 2 months, comes haunting every now and then and I shiver at the thought of reliving those moments. It was also the time when I had no clue what ‘The Secret’ was all about.
Meanwhile, I would still go play cricket whenever I got the opportunity. I fielded in safe areas so as to avoid any further aggravation. I became careful after the injury.
Two years later I saw ‘The Secret’ movie and started applying it in various areas. Miracles happened in all such areas. Sometimes my wish would be fulfilled in a day, a week or sometimes it would take months.
Anyway, recently I couldn’t say no to an excellent offer for a game and ended up on the field. I fielded and batted like mad, once again. However, this time I was not wearing my sports shoes and to my own disgust ended up aggravating my injury, as I heard the same popping sound and experienced the same pain in my knee, when I dived to get the ball. My right knee once again twisted and I wept in pain. The severity of the injury forced me to see the doctor once again, albeit I had ‘The Secret’ playing in my background this time. The doctor prescribed some anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers and asked me to wear braces. The second visit is still due next week.
I had to relive the pain once again the first day. Believe me it was the same unbearable pain, only this time with a swelling. However, I retained what I had no clue back then – ‘The Secret’. After the first day of pain and suffering, I started imagining myself all fit and fine. I would imagine my ligaments rejoining every now and then. I would picture my ACL creating cells on its own trying to bridge gaps. I would also wear braces and apply ice on the injury, thus once again following conventional methods of recovery.
To my surprise, the pain has completely vanished. This time, it hasn’t been even two days and I can walk normally without limping. I don’t feel the pain anymore. The injury isn’t completely cured however I am quite sure, with positive thinking and self healing, I would be running on the field once again (I doubt that. With the gravity of the situation, I fear my parents wouldn’t allow it!) ‘The Secret’ has certainly worked its magic on me. All thanks to Rhonda and of course the Universe.
Believe, visualize and feel grateful. That is all it takes.
