Love Heals All
I am writing today to share a story about my 17 year old daughter.
In January, my daughter went to live with her father. Her father and I divorced officially in 2012 and had been separated since 2007 after spending 20 years together.
Anyway, on March 19, her father contacted me to give me a litany of complaints and concerns regarding our daughter.
I read The Secret on February 20 of this year and have been putting into practice all of the teachings and can tell you it has transformed by life. For someone looking in from the outside they might not see any changes, but nothing and everything has changed! For those of you who know The Secret you will know exactly what I am talking about! 🙂
Anyway, one of my practices is to imagine magnificent outcomes to everything I undertake in the day, and magnificent outcomes to every contact I have with anyone I encounter in my day. I had done this when I awoke that morning. SO when I received this message from my ex husband I focused only on love. He asked me to talk with her and I said I would.
I proceeded to call her and she said she was busy so I asked her when would be a good time to call. She said 10:30 that evening. I told her I would call at that time. I told her I loved her and wished her a wonderful day and told her I was looking forward to talking with her later that evening.
After I hung up the phone I was feeling a bit anxious but I asked myself “How can I change my anxiety and get onto a feel good frequency?”.
I then remembered my teachings. To visualize the results I wanted, to ask for them, to believe them and be grateful.
I called my current husband and asked him to send thoughts of love to my daughter and then called my sister and asked her to send love thoughts to my daughter. I didn’t give any attention to the details of the call from my ex-husband about the list of concerns, etc. I simply envisioned my daughter, healthy, happy, full of life and love. I didn’t tell my sister the details of the conversation with my ex. I simply asked her to send extra love to my daughter that day.
After hanging up the phone with my sister, I sat in my chair and began sending love to my daughter and visualizing her smiling and happy, strong and healthy, full of life and love.
Within two minutes of me doing this my daughter called me! We spoke briefly and agreed to talk again at 10:30 as she initially had asked.
I called her at 10:30 and she sounded sad, lonely, upset and bereft. I didn’t talk with her about anything her dad had shared with me. I simply spoke to her of loving things and talked about how transformed my own life is by accepting people as they are, trusting that they are on the perfect path that will lead them where they need to go just as it is for myself. I just sent her love. I didn’t focus on the “issues”, never even mentioned them. I just focused on the end result, which is love. And that is what I conveyed to her.
I opened my e-mail and she sent me a message saying how thankful she was that I was so happy, that it made her happy. That she liked the new me and that the happiness was contagious. She said when I called her she was feeling hopeless, that her life was on a downward spiral and she felt like she really messed up, but after we spoke she talked to her father and they are working things out. She said she doesn’t fully understand it, but she has a little bit of faith now.
It’s not for me to change anyone, not even my children. I choose to see her healthy, happy, strong and filled with joy.
And guess what?
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Rhonda and her team for all of the teachers I have had past and present and future for being an instrument of love and wisdom!
