The Power to Walk Again
My story starts with a little bit of my boyfriend/fiancee’s background. He is 31 now and is a quadriplegic. He was in a car accident when he was 16 and had an incomplete spinal cord injury. He has been in and out of the hospital most of his adult life and all of his friends and anyone who was associated with him, completely abandoned him after his accident.
One doctor did tell him in the beginning that some day if his spinal cord and nerves did decide to heal, he would encounter excruciating pain. Of course every day he would have pain which is kinda weird since most people would think that someone couldn’t feel anything at all being paralyzed. He had a falling out with his family who was looking after him at the time and ended up living in the hospital since there was no other facility other than an old folks home for him to stay.
My life has had its ups and downs and unbeknownst to me, it would take a turn for the better. I was living with a man at the time who had no emotion except when it pertained to him. It wasn’t a horrible existence living with him, and in my heart, I wasn’t happy. One thing still to this day, I thank him for pushing me to acquire my Health Care Aide certificate.
I began working in the local Personal Care Home and wanted something more. I applied at the local hospital and was given a chance to work there. Well low and behold, there was this fellow there. He was young, smart, and very kind. He was funny, caring and really easy to talk to. We became really good friends and started spending a lot of time together. I would wake up in the morning thinking of the next time I would get to see him and I would go to bed thinking of him. I pictured my life having him in it instead of who I was with. He told me later that at some point while he was laying in the hospital, he prayed to be sent someone who would love him for him and not be concerned about his injury.
Well to make a really long story even longer, we have been together for over two years now and are living on a farm (which I’ve always wanted). When I was in my other relationship, a friend had told me about The Secret. I watched the movie and was inspired, but I don’t think I was ready for it then. This past fall, I watched it again and since my boyfriend couldn’t really get up and walk away, he watched it too. From that night, I knew I had the power in me to help him heal. I’ve read The Secret, The Power, Thoughts are Things. I’ve started reading The Secret of the Ages and The Master Key System. I have always believed that knowledge is power and to me this is the right knowledge.
So back to my boyfriend. He is beginning to feel things where he couldn’t feel them before. I test him as to what toe I’m touching without him looking and he’s getting them right. I believe wholeheartedly in the power of a loving healing touch and I put all of my energy into helping him heal. Everyone has to believe in something so why not believe in ourselves to have all the power in the universe right at our fingertips. I know that his recovery and healing won’t happen overnight, but with the power of my unwavering and unconditional love, his healing is happening a lot faster than I think a lot of people would have expected.
I think back to when I first met him and I told myself that I would make him better. I didn’t know how and I didn’t know when, but I believed in my heart that we wished for each other for a reason and that reason is so that we can finally be happy, healthy and prosperous together. I’m a believer! If you all don’t mind, I’ll keep you updated as to the progress of his healing. I’m so excited!!!
