This is very uncomfortable for me to write. But, I have come to a place where I must feel my fears, look them straight in the eye and shine a bright light on them.
It seems that there is an imbalance in my body since the birth of my two beautiful girls. After having Zella an ovarian cyst was discovered. Nothing much came of it. We seemingly coexisted peacefully for some time. After the birth of my second, Kevra, two more cysts have been found. There is obviously something wrong/out of balance, otherwise they wouldn’t be there. Cysts can be rather benign, coming and going without much understanding of why or how. The three cysts are large enough to cause concern. They are not cancerous as far as we can tell.
Here is why I need your help. I have 8 weeks until my next checkup. If they continue to grow in that time, my doctor wants to surgically cut them out. If you know me at all, I prefer to heal things as naturally as possible. I don’t want to have surgery. I am working with every natural remedy that I can find as well as with meditation to heal this imbalance in my body.
I feel that I need more. It is difficult to share any of this with you and it is even more difficult for me to ask for your help. I am going to do it anyways. It was extremely clear to me in my meditation this morning (which guided me to write this) how I could ask for help. But, now as I’m writing it, I’m having difficulty finding the right words.
Simply Put: I need your healing prayers and love.
Prayer is the most natural method of healing. It needs no essential oils, acupuncture needles or any other tools beyond the willingness and intentions of the participants. For the next 8 weeks, I need your help in building a prayer circle around me and my healing process. I do not want your pity or sadness – they will not help. All I want is your loving healing prayers.
These cysts, as with every other obstacle I have encountered in my life, are an opportunity healing old wounds that are showing up in the present and growth on my path of self-mastery. God has given me this opportunity to find courage and strength to show my vulnerabilities, ask for help, and to do whatever else I need to do to come closer to Him. Whether you know me or not, I need you prayers. You are a part of my journey of finding union with God. And I thank you. I thank you.
Please pray for me for the next 8 weeks. With your love and support and the prayer circle we will build, I know I can heal the cysts and in ways that I can’t even imagine.
With love and deep gratitude,
