Have you ever looked into au pairs? Maybe an au pair goes beyond your morning needs, plus you're usually expected to provide room and board unless you live very close to a college campus. But maybe your search will be more fruitful if you look beyond the traditional nanny route.
My heart goes out to you Laura. I wish I could give you a very big hug in person, but I am enveloping you with love and light ❤️ 😇
My heart is with you Jaidy. I'm sending lots of love and light to you and will continue to do so. I got chills just now...I'm so sorry you are dealing with this situation. I think the visualization technique Jeanne mentioned sounds good. Oprah has used visualization techniques for years and it has been proven so successful for her. I also like the idea that Coyote gave of the au pair.
I do not have children so my situation was much different, but many years ago when I was in my early 20s I left my first husband after only 9 mos of marriage. I caught him in our home with a younger woman and then he actually tried to turn the tables and hurt me so I ran. It was evening, we had no cell phones back then, but I grabbed my purse and ran like hec. I hid under a car in the street that was parallel parked as he ran up and down the town street looking for me. I hid there until he was gone, went to a payphone, called a dear friend named Steve and he brought me to his parents house and I stayed on the couch. The next day Steve and other male friends brought me home and escorted my then husband out the door. That was not the end of the story, but I just wanted you to know I do understand some of the difficulty in dealing with an abusive type of man. I was fortunate, because I didn't have to deal with him much after that because we didn't have children. I also worked on myself for about 4.5 years before I met my husband and remarried at 31yrs old. I promised myself that I would never make the mistake of having an abusive person in my life again. I realized I was much stronger than I gave myself credit for and learned a lot about myself.
I will send you light and protection and keep you in my nightly prayers. ❤️ 😇 ❤️
@triciact through being with my ex I am grateful for the opportunity I had in recognizing my value and learning to have boundaries. Nonetheless my safety and mental happiness as well as that of my daughters come first. This position is ideal for an older person or college student in our neighborhood - and I will visualize finding that person. Thanks for everyone’s continued light and well wishes.
Could all of you send a healing light to my ex-landlady. Her name is Eliza Keys and she'll be 79 on May 26. She had a stroke, and it must have been a bad one. They said her face was all swollen. Thanks everybody.
Hi @jaidy, perhaps my post, linked to below, will help with finding a novel solution to your problem...
@frank thanks frank- I have a spirit guide I work with and have been meditating daily. But maybe I have to be more focused. Or sometimes it’s better to work with dreams- thanks for the suggestion- I will dig deeper. Peace
Eliza and I share a birthday. Sending healing thoughts of comfort to her.
Asking for prayers, light love and understanding to be sent to my 15 year old son. He is struggling with friendship, feeling isolated and sad. He broke down sobbing yesterday.
Thank you. I always remembered her birthday because it was my Mother's as well.
Happy to send good vibes, but I want you to consider getting your son to a therapist before it's too late. There is an epidemic of depression in young people, my daughter is one of them. Had I picked up on the signs earlier we might have avoided a lot of heartache. Find a therapist who also has teen group therapy, it might help him develop new relationships. Act now before he decides to start "self-medicating".
@kksali, I don't know your situation, but I agree with @laura-f about getting some help for your son. I don't have children, but I was a very depressed kid. I think it would have helped me had therapy been more available and accepted back then.
I can feel your son's kind, loving spirit. I'm sending waves of that kindness and love back to him, and will keep you both in my prayers.
I am praying and sending light your way. I understand so well what you are going through. I'm hoping an angel will come your way very soon!
I am not sure if this is the place to post this. My 23 year old daughter has a 1B melanoma on her leg. They were not able to remove it all when they did a biopsy and she is having surgery tomorrow. They are also removing the lymph nodes in the groin area that the cancer would spread to, if it has spread. That is the question.
Would anyone be able to do a tarot reading regarding her situation? Her name is Cari Elana. She is a very spiritual young lady. She recently moved to Texas and we are many miles apart and I cannot be with her during this time
Thank you in advance!
Oh my. Kids can be so cruel.
It is so hard to stay afloat, especially in this culture of bullying.
I am sending your son love.
My child is finally getting some help at almost 21 years old. I too wish I could have gotten her help earlier...she was not open to it.
Let him know he's loved every single day. It can make a difference.
Hello @lisabella123 . I am so sorry to hear about your daughter's health issue. I am not skilled enough to read on something so serious. But as I was prayer for her, I felt compelled to give you this message.
I want you to know, that even though the road ahead is a difficult one, keep faith The Holy Spirit is with her. The Virgin Mary is looking after your daughter on your behalf. Through Her, you are there with Cari Elana.
I hope I didn't offend you with the religious characteristic of the message. But that is what I felt in my heart. I will keep both of you in my thoughts and prayers. I send light and love to the two of you.
PS: I just felt the words Choir of Angels in my mind in case it means something to you...
@kksali Often when I meditate about healing for someone, I see a warm red glow and that’s what I just experienced when sending healing to your son. I pray for his healing and that he be protected during this troubling time. I saw him healed. I saw him smiling and realizing that life is much brighter than he had realized, that he is connected to people who care about him and that he can make friends. Relief washes over him. Namaste.
My heart goes out to you and your family in this difficult time. If I can give you any comfort, it is this.
We know nothing.
Yes, this may seem like hollow and insensitive words. But they are so true, and a belief I take to heart every day. Please allow me to explain.
They told my mother to get her funeral arrangements ready, as the type of cancer she developed had (at that time) only had two women in East Tennessee survive it. Three decades later, she is still here.
They told my grandfather that he would not survive past one year because his heart was so bad. He survived an additional twenty one years and died at the age of 93.
They told my father that his stage 4 cancer had a survival rate of 5% (survival after 5 years of diagnosis). That was back in 2007. He's still here.
In short, don't focus on statistics. Don't listen to odds or long-term predictions. Because we truly know nothing. We can't afford to listen to those who try to weigh us down with bad news and stress (Trump is talented in the department of spreading ill will, but that is a post for another time). Tune it all out and focus on the light. Or God Almighty. Or positivity. Whatever is important and uplifting to you, focus on it, and you won't go wrong.
I'm not sure if my story helps. Each time, we listened to our doctors, but we refused to let bad predictions get us down (I suspect that we may be too stubborn for our own good. Probably explains why we are one of the few families of democrats in an area that is 95% Republican!). But regardless of that, as one person who watched a loved one struggle with cancer, I implore you to focus on the positive and let it radiate from you. Your daughter will be drawn to your light and will need its strength as she recovers. Don't focus on the cancer itself, as it will depress you. Take courage in the fact that your daughter is not a statistic and that we never know what the future will bring.
I hope that my story did not diminish your faith in doctors, as I am sure that they are fantastic doctors. But I merely point out that doctors cannot see the future. Even if you hear bad news, it may not be entirely accurate, as my own history can attest to. Take courage in this, and keep us posted on your daughter's recovery.
