This isn't a scam. But if you don't feel comfortable giving me money, DON'T. I'm not putting a gun to anyone's head. It was an idea I had, and I thought why not try it and see what happens? Angela first gave me a very kind response and I was grateful for that ALONE.

Angela, I wish you overflowing healing energy and vitality, and the power to overcome your challenges.
Her kind words alone filled me with a sense of joy. But look how easily a few negative comments from others changed her mind and allowed fear to enter it - are we so fickle or insecure that we can turn from love to fear and hate so easily?
I'm glad I posted this in the 'character and contribution' part of the forum, because it is a good test of character - mine AND yours. I took a chance knowing that some people may not trust my intentions and now instead of people wishing me well, I'm under the fire. But what if there is truth to what I'm saying? What if I am somebody who has suffered a lot and you are adding to my suffering by posting comments that are judgemental, assuming, mistrusting, insulting, sarcastic and demeaning -

So you're flat broke, but the minute you get $5,000 you're going to spend it on this frivolous crap? I should send you a few bucks for the five minutes of laughter you have provided for me. No, no, no...thank you! And Merry Christmas!
tc33, if you come to this forum seeking insight on character development, the first thing you need to start with is dropping the sarcasm. Steve talks about overcoming his sarcastic tendencies in his very first podcast, "Intro
". What's at the root of needing to put others down for you? Mistrust? A need to feel superior? Is being a 'smart person' for you about avoiding being fooled? Or looking down at the 'dummies'? Open your heart to love, and you'll see, there is a whole world out there, safe, caring, loving, trusting, welcoming... We can put intellect to positive use without surrounding our intelligence with an aura of negative energy. Eventually tc33 you will evolve, and manifest your unique gifts in the positive - 'sarcasm' will become a clever wit that seeks to harm no one, but rather uplifts as it enlightens others. Your intellect is fine, that is not the problem. You need to change its focus and look for ways to create positive opportunities for yourself and others. Insulting me only created an opportunity for others to 'gang up on me', assail my character and use me as a scapegoat for whatever fears y'all carry about being 'duped' - you have a choice to contribute to the universe and others in higher ways.
(and I am one of those others! you made a choice that all can see to hurt me and add negativity. There was nothing in my original post that was negative or sought to hurt others. Choose your words with light. Oh, and Merry Christmas.)
This is a forum for smart people, not cruel people. Even if tc33 was 'right' about me being 'frivolous' or Angela 'right' about me being a 'scammer', you lower your vibration by sinking to the level of sarcasm and judgement. And in my own defense I say right now, from the bottom of my heart you are wrong. Everything I wrote in my original thread is true and came from my heart. Everything I asked for was valid.
Speaking of scammers, do you realize how it is we are having this conversation right now, how it is that this forum exists? It exists because many years ago, a big-time 'scammer' named Steve Pavlina sat in a jail cell for a crime he really did commit. He sat and he thought. And then he made a decision to turn his life around, and every step he's taken has led him to build his character and eventually create this site, and this forum.
Do you think Steve Pavlina 2006 spends his time hating on Steve Pavlina 1991 for being a scammer? Absolutely not. He said in "Intro" that he has everything to thank to that person in 91 who made that decision. So if you don't judge a man who rebuilt his character after commiting grand-felony theft, then don't judge a woman who wants to rebuild her life from the starting point of rebuilding her body mind and soul, and turning illness into health. My 'crime' was allowing my vibration to be low enough to cause an illness. But asking for help and generosity - that isn't a crime!
'Discern' rather than 'judge'. You say that the things I want are frivoless.
I was lucky and loved enough to have a friend send me The Secret
this week. Cathy Goodman healed herself of breast cancer using faith, gratitude, and 'the best medicine of all: laughter' - watching comedy movies - is that frivolous? Wow, all I said was that if I had 5,000$ I'd spend it to heal myself and bring myself a sense of peace. I have no shame in saying this. There are people in the world with tons of money and they spend more than that on a purse or a diamond. I happen to think that my health and well-being is MORE valuable and worthy than a rock. And so is yours.
I happen to believe that it is an ABUNDANT universe and it will not be taxed or strained by providing people with massage therapy or fresh fruit juice.
If you truly are a generous, giving and loving person in your day to day life with the people that you know, perhaps your fear concerning my post is rooted in the fact that I am a stranger. In one of his blogs Steve talks about him and Erin giving 20$ to a waitress, and what a wonderful experience it was for all of them. Well, in my lifetime, I've been that 'waitress'! And I've been kind and generous and giving too. What goes around comes around. Steve didn't make a judgement about what she would do with that 20$. He didn't try and tell her how to spend it, either. He simply saw that she was in a state of distress so he helped her. He gave with love. I don't want your 5$ tc33 - I didn't ask for money to be laughed at and I'm not a clown. I am someone who was suffering distress and has asked for support.

I didn't ask you how I should fix my problem. I asked for assistance with the path I have already chosen for myself. I was diagnosed in July. I've had 6 months of intense research and I've considered all the options. How do you know that my body will react to surgery the way yours did? How do you know my condition is the same as yours? I worded my original post very carefully because I was trying to apply the law of attraction. I was hoping I could draw a loving energy to me rather than ask people to help me out of pity. I wanted to focus on the positive to bring more positive. So I didn't go much into my condition. But I will here, so that you may understand my decision. There are 3 stages of dysplasia before cancer and I'm at the last one. My diagnosis was severe and advanced, and the LEEP
surgery (done with a hot wire that slices out the body tissue) prescribed by my doctors and consider 'minor' has major risks. Infertility, life long pain, painful sex, I've done the research read the testimonies, and I do not feel comfortable with invasive surgery.
This is my choice, as it was Cathy Goodman's, to heal naturally with non-invasive proceedures. I have recently gone through so much pain on all levels in my life and I don't want to go back there.
HEALING is not about 'getting cells frozen off'. Why do people get sick to begin with? What is sickness, really? I share my opinion with many people I respect - health is holistic, mind-body connection and balance, it is holographic, and the microcosm reflects the macro. Mutated, cancer-like cells in the cervix are just a mirror, reflecting disharmony elsewhere. I choose to HEAL myself, not just treat symptoms. I know and will not go into detail about my other 'symptoms' and health imbalances - I did not think it was necessary for y'all to know all the gory details in order to be generous. But Angela, please. If your health is good and everything's well and you're feeling fine, that's great. But if not, I encourage you to ask yourself what is at the root and then heal it. Don't just snip, cut, burn, medicate. Your dis-ease has a message for you - listen. Then you can avoid the fate of the many women who've cut and froze and burned their bodies and the dysplasia kept coming back until they got cancer or they cut out their whole uterus.
I can see now, even if I don't receive any monetary assistance, there is a positive reason why I placed the original post to begin with - to make you all think, including myself. Steve would at least approve of THAT. Another reason is to build my character - in the past verbal 'sticks n' stones' made me feel like I broke my bones, but this is good character weight lifting for me. I am proud I had the courage to respond. Oh, and one more thing -

I consider this comment judgemental. You've never met me, you know very little about me, just a few paragraphs and you feel comfortable and confident to tell me to 'start contributing'. We can contribute in many ways and that's why in my original post I welcomed ways other than money. I am someobody who contributes and adds value to people's lives and I would be happy to be in a position to do more, to do grand things. I have moved people to cry tears of joy with my voice and I have touched people's hearts with my love. I have inspired others with my words and will CONTINUE to do so, not 'start'. trekr5
- thanks for the pure positive energy, much appreciated. God bless you.
