My mother hasn't been on a vacation since my eldest sister was 3 months old so that was about 37 years ago and her sisters invited her to go to Las Vegas for a week around Thanksgiving. Mom has been so excited for the trip but in the past week, her ex-husband (and father of my brother and sister) was diagnosed with stage four liver cancer and seems like he'll go any day because he has accepted that. I helped her raise her vibration during all of that and she seemed to be in bright spirits yesterday when this morning she woke up with a kidney stone and can barely move around. Her plane takes off Monday morning so it looks as if she won't make it to Las Vegas. She asked me if this was a sign that she shouldn't go and I didn't know what to tell her. Any thoughts or questions? I'm trying my best to help her with this.
I just spoke with her and her fear that has kept her home for all these years is that something will happen while she's gone. She has to maintain an illusion of control to feel comfortable in her life. I read about ailments and their underlying emotional causes and found that kidney stones are supposed to be undissolved lumps of anger and she's clearly enraged by not being able to save his life and she did admit that she is terrified that he'll die while she's gone and no one will know what to do because she took on the responsibility for his care. I keep telling her that everything will be fine and run its course whether she's here or not but she doesn't want to let go so it seems like she'll be missing that flight. She has read many LoA books during her life but I don't think she applies it when things look bleak.
Wow. So is the medical field hiding this to make money or what?
Hi Johnny, sorry about your mom's situation. You are so wonderful to be such a wonderful source of support and positivity in her life. Here are my thoughts. If your mom wants to believe that it is a sign, then that will be her reality. If she believes that it is not, then it is not. It will all come down to what she wants to do. The future is open and limitless. If she really wants to go on the trip and have a good time, she will be able to do just that. It all depends on what she truly wants to do. She can create a week of Las Vegas of herself, or she can create a week of being at home for herself. Although she is experiencing kidney stones, she can decide if she is up to going or not. It depends on the individual. If it does not work out for her this time around, then she will find a way to go another time, as long as she doesn't give up on the idea of going to Las Vegas or a vacation of any sort. Thought and persistence will have your mom achieve her goal of a vacation. Hope this helps and good luck!
I passed on the advice to my mother you all and I'm pleased to say she'll be soaring over the country before noon tomorrow : ) Thanks for the posts everyone. I let her read them and she seems to be taking control of herself again.
