Writing Your Life
"If you want your life to be a magnificent story,
begin by realizing that you are the author and everyday
you have the opportunity to write a new page".
-- Mark Houlahan
Occasionally, I find myself wishing I could right every
every battle, and prove every point. The feeling usually passes as I
accept whatever uncertainties life has to offer, yet, I am gladdened
to find that I can still "write my life" by choosing what attitude I
face the world with. I am very fortunate to have recently learned
valuable lessons about attitude from my parents and grandmother, as I
watched how they dealt with "the slings and arrows of outrageous
fortune" in their lives.
Something shocking happened in my family just a couple of years ago.
Doctors discovered that my grandmother had liver cancer. They
performed a biopsy and found cancerous cells in her liver. They took
CAT scan images which confirmed what the blood tests indicated -- she
had liver cancer. The doctors estimated she had less than a year to
live. Since my grandmother was in her 90's, she requested only pain
medication, choosing to forego radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
She had seen many of her friends suffer from those cancer treatments.
As she told us how grateful she felt for having lived such a wonderful
life, she prayed for the courage to face whatever came next. When my
grandmother was certain of her diagnosis and had a few weeks to
prepare herself emotionally for peoples' reactions, she told friends
and family that she had terminal liver cancer. Immediately, most of
the people who dearly love this precious woman began to pray on her
behalf. While her own prayers were simply for courage, other people
(myself included) were praying for her return to good health. Within
a few months, my grandmother's doctors were astonished to find that
her cancer was stabilizing. Several months after that, they were
completely at a loss to explain why they could no longer find any
trace of cancer in her body! When doctors told my grandmother that
they had no explanation for what had just happened, she assured them
that she knew why her cancer was gone -- it was because prayer works.
I am grateful to live in a time when scientific evidence is confirming
the effectiveness of distant healing. Spontaneous remissions of
cancers, tumors, and other apparently lethal medical conditions have
long been known to occur when people are prayed for -- and we are
finally reaching a point where these effects of prayer can be
scientifically confirmed. There was a time, not so long ago, when
such stories were routinely dismissed as mere "anecdotal evidence" of
something inexplicable and therefore unmentionable. If you want to
read about these recent scientific studies, please go the
realityshifters.com home page and click on the "Scientific Research
Confirms Distant Healing" article.
My (cancer-free!) grandmother was not feeling frisky enough to journey
to the Pacific Northwest this summer for a family reunion this year,
but she sent along her childhood memories that she'd written for my
mother over a period of several years. My sister painstakingly typed
and bound the manuscript, including photographs from the early 1900's.
These simple, personal stories of how each of my grandmother's family
members faced trials and tribulations made for fascinating reading,
and inspired me to do a better job of connecting with my relatives
while we're all still alive. After the reunion was over, I drove with
my parents to drop in on some relatives -- with no advance warning.
What impressed me most about this experience was the way we were
greeted with open arms and hearts everywhere we went -- even when we
met a complete stranger! I hope you'll read my article "Welcome Love"
about this experience in the most current issue of Planet Lightworker.

(1) Your Reality Shift Stories
Thanks so much to Claire and Ursula for sharing reality
experiences with us this month. These stories refresh my sense of awe
and wonder at the ways our universe is constantly responding to our
thoughts and feelings. We may only notice reality shifts once in a
while... but these stories remind us that they are happening all
around us, all the time.
I drive about 10 miles through farmland until I get into the city each
day to get to work. There have been many occasions where I am being
tail-gated by someone who just does not want to maintain the country
speed limit which is about 45 to 50 mph. When someone is tail-gating
me I send them an
intense, mental message to "back off" and then just ignore them. I do
not know how many times after I send this mental messages that I will
glance into my rear view mirror and find the tail-gater is gone and I
am alone on the road. Since there are few, if any, side roads, it
seems as though either they disappeared or I did, into a different
MISSING WATCH RETURNS
The 'Guess?' watch came to me in an impressive case and has metal
strap which could, if one did not know better, be mistaken for solid
On Tuesday, the 18th July, 2000, I opened my desk drawer and saw the
watch lying squashed between a paper clip box and a stamp pad.
The watch-strap bites into my skin. I hardly wear this watch. But
it was a present, so it needs to be cherished. I must put it away
nicely, I thought, as Janak walked into the room.
Janak is the young man who looks after my computer hardware. He had
come to take my printer for repairs. I was out of the room for a
while and Charlotte (the young maid who lives in) was in briefly
while Janak was alone. Then I came back and Janak went out to make
a phone call and I opened the drawer to take out the watch.
It was not there!
After I looked and looked again, I called Charlotte to empty the
drawer. There are lots of things inside - from ink to pens, to
envelopes to tapes and rubber bands and diaries and batteries and
calculators to pins and matches and well you name it, itas a real
The watch was not there!
It was only because I very recently remembered and shared an
experience I had as a teenager (a pound of butter) I did not raise
"You must have put it into your bag." Said Charlotte. I knew I had
not, but nevertheless checked the bag. This had very recently
undergone a "clean out" and only contained my keys (in the pocket with
zip), my wallet and a coin purse. Not much to check. The watch of
course was not there.
My husband and friends suspected theft. I held firm, believing it was
a reality shift and the watch would come back. But why did it go?
Was this a test?
Yesterday I opened the zip pocket to take out a key. I looked into
the zip pocket to take out a key, and saw there was nothing except the
keys. The pocket is quite small.
On the 25th of July, 2000, I opened the zip pocket and there was the

(3) Welcome Love
I recently traveled to the Pacific Northwest for a family
For a couple of days after the reunion, my parents and I dropped in on
the homes of several relatives (and one complete stranger) without
warning. We didn't phone or schedule these visits ahead of time, but
simply drove up to their houses, parked our car, and got out to talk
to whomever we saw in the yard.
