The reason I say this is so that people will be mindful of what they put out to the universe. Before I realized who I am, I put some words out to the universe that I wish I could take back.
Backstory: When I was child and going through growing pains, I wished that my breasts were nonexistent. They’d hurt so badly that I’d cry from the pain.
Flashforward 25 years and still a backstory: During my freelance writing career I met some awesome people, heard their stories and wrote about them for a newspaper. I wrote several stories about those who had macular degeneration. To assist with my stories, I really wanted to get a feel for what it was like. One woman told me that macular degeneration is horrible and you don’t want to know. I agreed.
So about six years ago, I was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer; hence the removal of my breasts. Shortly after one of my reconstruction surgeries, I cried a huge cry one night when I remembered my words as a child. I said to Spirit, ‘I did not know.’ Unfortunately, as a child I had no one to tell me that I should not wish for my breasts to be gone. If I could only go back to that day, I would eat those words.
And yes, a couple of years ago I was told I have dry macular degeneration. I’ve been told it takes about 10 years to become legally blind. I never wished that I would have that horrible disease, but I did wonder about it. I should be able to keep my peripheral vision. Only time will tell on that one.
The point is – be mindful of the words and thoughts you put out to the universe. Everything you say, do or think influences your future. Don’t ever forget that.
When you are raising your children or when you are around your grandchildren, tell them the stories that I talked about above and how their words and thoughts are things, and that they should be mindful of them.
Many Blessings of Peace and Love!
