Ask And Ye Shall Receive...
Here is an opportunity for you to be compassionate, generous, and supportive of someone that will truly reap positive benefits from your assistance. I am asking you to help me raise money for a personal healing journey and make a transition from a difficult situation to one of peace, harmony, perfect health and abundance.
I wish to heal my body over the next three months with fresh organic juicing and food, supplements, natural hormone therapy, detoxification, spas, floatation baths, rejuvenating exercise, acupuncture, yoga, energy work and positive thinking. I recently quit my job and ended the high amount of stress that was contributing to my dis-ease. I intend to raise 5,000$ towards this end by my grandmother’s birthday - January 02, 2007.
I believe that this crisis is the one that turns my life around forever for the better. For a long time I lived in a state that Steve described most aptly in his podcast "Solving A Frustrating Problem". It was a state of ‘learned helplessness’, trying to do what I love while struggling to pay bills and put a roof over my head. I'm an artist, a singer with a beautiful powerful voice and I always felt that I had an important purpose in my life. Though I was smart, I couldn't see a way out of my problems, I looked at the music industry and was repelled by the negativity I saw there, unaware that I was attracting my fears through my own negative thinking.
I'd like the chance to turn my life around, to act out my purpose which I have finally found - it is to be a source of love, light, joy and inspiration for others and myself. First step is loving myself. I'm posting this because I believe I deserve the opportunity to be assisted, I am worthy of support and I am reaching out for it the best I know how. "Ask and ye shall receive". I am placing my order with the universe :)
If you'd like to help, I'd be so happy and grateful. You can send money via PayPal to my email account: DELETED. ANY amount you feel comfortable giving would help my cause. If you are not in a position to help but sincerely want to, I THANK YOU for your caring and compassion. And I welcome any positive thoughts you may have for me, I welcome any prayers and I welcome your faith.
It is my intent to heal not just my cervical dysplasia, but heal my body completely, my emotions, heal my past wounds, heal my life. And set my spirit free to live a life of joy. I intend to have that first baby! And by becoming a healthy person, I intend to contribute to a healthier planet.
I intend that anyone who helps me to this end be totally blessed with excellent karma, health, wealth and happiness.
I will keep you all posted on these small miracles that I am creating ;)
Thank you! Angela :-)
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 (NKJV) (Also Luke 11:9-13)
Addendum - Since I first posted this, I have learnt so much and changed so much, both due to my personal life experiences and your valued feedback! Respectively, my request has changed as my quest has changed;-) so I deleted my email address, I'm not asking for your help. I no longer see myself as a victim and I found the power and faith within me! All the best to you all and lots of love.
I will add a new post at the end, read it if you are curious about how my perspective has evolved.
From one Angela to another....
Angela, I wish you overflowing healing energy and vitality, and the power to overcome your challenges.
These forums have never been a place for money to change hands, and I'm concerned that this being your first post, you're likely to encounter more suspicion and resistance than flowing cash.
I would like to suggest to you that this is a great place to seek personal growth, and if you'd like to benefit here, you might like to ask the universe for what you desire UNDERNEATH your request for funds. But asking for money here is likely to rankle.
Again, lots of healing vitality to you.
I send you lots of positive energy so that you achieve everything you may need.
Then start contributing instead of scamming.
In defense of love, trust, uplifting words and MY character
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.
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 -
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.
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 -
trekr5 - thanks for the pure positive energy, much appreciated. God bless you. ;)
I think we can ALL learn a lot from this thread.
Evaluate your emotions in response to this thread and it they aren't as charitable and kind as you would like them to be.....what a great place to start your "personal development"!
I certain had the whole gammit of emotions.
(I'm not saying there isn't a place for skepticism....but sometimes it best to just move on rather than reacting.....ya know? ;)
Lol why need $5000 when you so obviously think that the LOA and thinking positive thoughts will have an effect on your life? Why not raise your vibration without money? You should have come on to the forums and told people to put their money to a use that would help multiple people as opposed to one person.
The truth is that I have no idea why I have an intrinsic need to tell the world that I'm a 'smart person' (feeling of superiority?). I know that condescending people create dissonance. I know it, but I do it anyways. Granted, I do it much less than now than I have in the past (yay progress!), but my thoughts often remain. If you were to tell me your story in person, I'd semi-feign empathy on the outside but simultaneously judge you on the inside. Yes, I may have gotten better at covering up the problem, but it remains a problem none-the-less. I believe the root cause of this problem is being judgemental, but I have not yet found a logical reason to be non-judgemental towards others. I'm getting pretty good at faking it on the outside, but this is obviously not a long-term solution. Do you have any thoughts/suggestions?
Now, let's try to put the ♥♥♥♥♥ back in the horse ;) If you would, please allow me to attempt to rephrase my original answer in the form of a constructive, supportive comment:
Love Angel, you have a good heart. Anyone who quotes the bible, intends to contribute to a healthier planet, and drinks organic juices must be an enlightened individual. (positive sarcasm? ;) ) However, I'm not certain that asking for resources will correct the underlying problem. Obviously I do not know the particulars of your situation, but I do know that the same habits which exhausted your resources will not be corrected simply by acquiring more resources. Regardless of the outcome of your 'raise $5K in two weeks' campaign, it may be wise to consider what fundamental economic issues exist in your life and work to correct those. After correcting this issue, you'll be in a much greater position to spread your positivity to others than you are currently.
There...was that any better? And Merry Christmas (sincerely this time!) :D
Building character starts within :-D
Yes, that was much better, thank you! ;)
You can wait until you find a 'logical' reason not to be sarcastic/judgemental, or you can simply make a choice to drop it because it doesnít serve you and it doesnít serve others.
Sarcasm & judging others are both ways of protecting ourselves. Judgement is a way of lowering our expectations of others before they have a chance to disappoint us. Or it could be an easy way out of having to work things out with others, or see their perspective. Sarcasm is a competitive and defensive way of keeping the upper hand, but also keeping others at arm's length from us.
Hey, we all have inner and outer challenges to overcome in this life - Iím still learning too. Donít be too hard - on others or yourself ;-) Cultivate inner patience and giving the benefit of the doubt. Start without expectations of how it will manifest in your outer life. And practice connecting with your heart and your gut - itís not all about your Ďheadí. I know you can do it and that you have a good heart in there - give it a chance to express its good nature more often.
Perhaps sarcasm is something you learned from an important person or experience in your life, maybe itís the way you were treated when you opened up or were vulnerable. If you go to your root you will find the reason pertinent for you. Then let it go - by understanding its lesson for you, you will be free of it.
Tom, look at what you wrote in your last post:
And so sincerity, empathy, trust, etc. these are not skills you need to develop - you already have them innately. What you need to develop is your ability to ALLOW yourself to use them! Focus on them. You're really not that far from your goal!
Finally, it may help you to use visualization. There are many books out there with different ones, the main thing is visualizing white light entering your body or surrounding it. Or imagining a bright white globe in your heart, blazing like the sun. Here, I pulled out a book for you, A Practical Guide To Vibrational Medicine by Richard Gerber, MD. On pgs. 92-94 is a good one.
Another great book is Jesse Reeder's Black Holes & Energy Pirates. But don't delay the changes you can make starting today. You know enough already to make great transformations in your life. :)
Okay, that's all for now. But I will address your new constructive and supportive comments in another post, because I liked what you said. I will also address Shaden's post because he raised good points. But for the next couple of days, I will take some time to rest.
Happy Holidays Everyone! :D
....and if THAT doesn't work, try asking people for money!
I sincerely wish you well with your recovery. I believe that you have the ability to heal your cervical dysplasia with love and the belief that you are well. And from what I've read I see you have the maturity and the right attitude to succeed with it. On the practical level, I'm not in a position to contribute financially right now, but there are many other types of prosperity apart from money. I teach EFT to people and would be more than happy to contribute my EFT knowledge to your situation. In fact since I've been doing EFT I've been fascinated by the mapping that can be observed between particular illnesses and injuries and where they occur against particular emotional issues. If you're at all interested in using EFT as part of your recovery, contact me and I'll do everything I can to contribute to your healing.
On the emotional/spiritual level, I send you love and peace, and intend for your healing to be fast and complete.
Much love and joy to you
Angela, the “Ask, and it will be given to you” that you make reference to is not the asking of the world. Asking comes from within and is received from within. One may think of communication in terms of words, but it is beyond words. It is the asking of the heart. Weather it is a begging, which is asking for “not having”, or simply feeling good about the fulfillment of good health, you are asking and receiving in that moment out of your beingness. Over time, the body follows what you are in being. Think differently and feel differently, and the body heals itself.
If you genuinely require healing and money is still an issue with you, I am quite confident there are people who can help you, but not if you have expectations of how that healing will look. I state this out of looking back at my own journey. Hazel has already offered to help you on the issue side of things. I can recommend something that I have had personal experience with; Quantum-Touch . Go to the Message Boards and enter the section where you can request healing for yourself or anyone else for that matter. If you do that, there is no money involved. Its all done out of love. This is a simple and miraculous healing technique. When I say miraculous, I mean that literally. Let us know how you go.
All the best in your journey
I received exactly what I most needed - FAITH
Where to start. Here we go:
All the events that have transpired in my life have led me to this perfect place where I am right now! Including my original post. Although it was the wrong way to create the healing I desire, it was a catalyst that brought me not money, but the great treasures of WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE and FAITH.
This whole process dug up a lot of fear for me. See, at the root of wanting to do a water fast was a powerful fear of illness and also a fear that I was too broke for proper care. A water fast was cheap, but then I thought - if I want quality health, I need to invest in it! There is a saying that "you get what you pay for" so at that time I thought in order to have a high quality of health I would need to make a worthy investment.
(Angela must find this pretty ironic - that I wouldn't go under the knife but I would 'starve' myself. I wasn't afraid of fasting. But I'm glad I didn't do it! I know that deep in my heart what I wanted is what I finally found, and I trust that the process I went through, and all the crazy ideas I had, had a purpose - each time I moved through them, I understood a little something more about myself. I resolved some issue, and have now arrived at the point where for me healing is not about doctors, knives, chemicals. It is not about supplements, juicing, fasting. It is about positive thinking, feeling, believing. Being calm, clear, relaxed. Breathing. Laughing. Creating a clear mental picture of perfect health. Healing the body is about creating miracles with the mind. Although I wasn't consciously aware, this is what I was seeking the whole time, and I judge no one, Angela, for what they have chosen on their path, on their personal journey;-)
At this point in my story, after discarding the crazy water fast idea and adopting the believe that my level of health could only reflect how much I could monetarily invest in it, sure enough, as the law of attraction always follows our predominant thoughts, the research I was doing began pointing in the direction of expensive supplements, like AHCC for example - in a clinical trial this mushroom extract completely reversed the advance cerivcal dysplasia for all the women involved. However, to get those effects would've taken at least 14 bottles which is around 850$ CND. Before I wrote my original post I had already incurred more than 680$ of debt to pay for supplements. But there was always this fear that it wasn't enough, or wasn't the right one for my biochemostry, and on and on went my fearful thoughts... until I had created an alternative healing strategy so diverse it left no room for error, to the tune of 5,000$. At the root of this was a false belief that I needed to spend a lot to heal, which was itself a reactionary thought to the idea that I needed to starve to heal - I was a pendulum that swung both ways before I centered in the middle. Does this help you understand? 5,000$ was about swinging the opposite way - a misguided attempt to make amends with myself after contemplating restricting and depriving myself and also feeling that I lost this person that I loved so much because of it.
I was coming from a position of fear and feeling like a victim. So subconsciously those were the principles operating when I wrote the post. I had written my original post and then received The Secret a day or two later. It took a little time to sink in. But when it did, I realized that I had sent out the vibe of desperation, which would not attract to me what I desired. More so, after repeatedly watching Cathy and Morris Goodman's story, I began to trust and have faith, knowing that I created the dis-ease and that I could also heal it! And this is even more exciting than my original idea! It feels way more empowering than any solution I've encountered thus far - more empowering than surgery, than expensive and time consuming alternative methods.
Through this confidence and through this faith I have been returned a precious gift - myself! Only now do I realize that I had let my fears and obsessive focus on dis-ease eclipsed everything else in my life, until I didn't exist in it. Now I remember myself, I remember I need to make myself feel good and joyful most of all.
I just want to end by saying that I feel really happy right now! I feel a joy and a reverence for life that is incredible. I will keep you posted on my healing. But in my mind, it is already done.
Much blessings, prosperity, healing, faith, love, wisdom and joy to all of you - for 2007 and always!!!
;) Angela xoxo
Do you believe in Angels?
Angels seen AND unseen
I felt I had a direct experience with God, and ever since I've always believed that angels walk beside me, always.
Why do you ask? Do you think it's ironic that someone who believes they are being guided and protected could have been in such a panicked, frantic and fearful state? Because that's what I wondered as I wrote this. It's kind of a paradox for me.
But to answer your question, I not only believe in Angels, I believe I have personal ones assigned to me. It's just a feeling I have, a knowing that I trust. I love them so much! :)
I love my name because it always reminds me of this connection, and I feel it honours them. xox Angela ;-)
PS - I have also been lucky to meet a few earth angels, or people that have come into my life to serve a higher purpose - these people have my utmost respect and absolute love.
Hey Angela, I'm really glad that you've moved past the panic. You're on the road to healing now, just imagine how much disease thinking you've corrected already!!
The part of the secret with Cathy Goodman's ex-cancer is good isn't it?
As I said before, I am interested in the emotional causes of disease, and have read a few interesting books and references about them. EFT helps to clear the old emotional rubbish that has often contributed to the illness. For example, this uterine cancer cure.
You have to make mistakes to learn, so please be kind to yourself about the "panicked, frantic and fearful state" you found yourself in. You're an earth angel in training, and I reckon you just passed the first test!
joy and health to you
PS - my offer's still open
Keep the faith
Angela, I hope that you are doing well. Please stay positive and good luck with your quest. ;)
