A snapshot of a day can never do a lifetime justice, but hey ho, here's a snapshot of my day today.
So much happens most days, it's easy to overlook events, and be too "matter-of-fact". Today, an email written to a friend explaining my day today seemed appropriate for this blog. Lives are about helping others...
So here's three "helping others" things for today...
1. Help for poor people
Today I'm clearing cupboards, drawers and wardrobes etc to give stuff to poor people who can't afford things. So far, there are five full sacks of very nice things that I don't really need. I usually advertise on a site called "Freegle". Poor people post free ads for what they need, and richer people post ads for nice stuff to give away free. No traders, just free giveaways to help those in need. I've given away £1,000's over the past few years. It's not all mine. Sometimes a tenant leaves one of my properties, but doesn't take their belongings. So I give it to poor people. Last year, one tenant left roller blades, Rayban sunglasses, and other quality goods that filled 35 sacks!!! It was worth lots of money, but hey, I like giving to help poor people. You should see people's happy smiles when they get something nice for free that they could not have afforded to buy.
2. Help for sick friends
The rest of today I'm helping two friends who are unwell. One has depression, the other has pain from an injury. Sometimes, I'd rather help others than be helped myself. For example, if I have a flu, I just get over it myself. It's comforting and warming to accept help, but I'd rather no-one worries themselves over me for minor things. But if someone else is ill, I'm there as fast as possible, and as long as needed. My deep desire is to help others, or relieve their suffering. So if someone's ill, they can rely on me to support or do whatever they need to make them comfortable and help them return to good health.
3. Help for hopeful authors
Readers will have their gifts that can help others. As one of my gifts is writing, this evening I'm attending a writers' group. It's a professional group, for existing or potential published authors. I've invited a man I met recently, who said many people suggest he write a book on his scientific and mystical ideas on life, the universe and everything.
I've offered to help him write his book. Normal such charges elsewhere are £1,000 for guidance from start to finish, to £5,000 - 20,000 if the book was written for him. But he's a poor guy, doing house clearances with a van, so I'll help him for free. I hope his book will make him lots of money to help his life, and give him prestige and other benefits.
I've invited a second man to the writers' group too. We met at a local church. After the service he said he wished to write a book on his 'strange' experiences of healing through the power of god. Such as when he placed his hands on a sick person to pray, and the person suddenly shot about 10 feet away from him, as if pushed hard. But he hadn't pushed at all, let alone hard enough to push the person 10 feet backwards. The person was cured. I've offered to help him write his book too. No charge - we met after he'd prayed in church!
Both men's books combine science and mystic experiences. Right up my street! When we have a gift, and opportunities to help others knocks at our door, we should answer the calls for help. If they work 2 hours a week for three months, their books will be ready for a publisher's decision.
I don't usually moralize on these blogs. But just for today, could you help others in three ways?
1. Could you give something to poorer people?
2. Could you help someone, a little more, who you know is sick?
3. Could you use one of your gifts to help someone in need?
All this might seem a lot of work. But it doesn't take much time if you work fast, and don't waffle when helping or teaching someone. Then everything always seems quick and easy.
Well, there you are. A little about my day :-))
How about yours?
A miracle cure is a cure a doctor can't achieve. If doctors can't cure a patient or condition, and something else does, it's a miracle!! Actually, maybe it's not a miracle - maybe it's normal!!! :-)
It's documented that Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) achieves 'miracle' cures. Search the internet for 1) any common condition, add 2) a specific CAM therapy, add 3) the word "cure", and/or add 4) the words "scholarly article". It's surprising. Most common conditions have adequately researched curative options that doctors wouldn't dream of.
Doctors are limited in their scope. In the 1920s Dr Kondo, a medical doctor said in the Japanese Parliament that doctors know everything about the nature of a disease but don't know how to cure it. Dr Usui, the founder of Reiki, responded that Reiki practitioners know nothing about the nature of a disease but know how to cure it. This still holds true almost 100 years later.
Reiki or other CAM 'miracle' cures are weird, because no matter how great a 'miracle' it is, even some friends and family won't believe Reiki or CAM created the miracle. Even if they do believe, even less would try that CAM therapy themselves.
It's almost as if some people's minds are brainwashed against believing in cures, unless a doctor does it.Why believe only a doctor can achieve their cure, and it can't be found elsewhere? It's unrealistic.
Sceptics are strange, sad creatures. Their main delight in life is to knock CAM down without seeking evidence of the "miracle's" truth. I love sceptics if they seek balanced evidence. Most people I know can't stand sceptics who refuse to even look at evidence, but vociferously promote self-opinionated negative views.
I researched Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) with a PhD student at the University of London. Under strict research protocols, and nine measures that cross-validated each other, we showed that the CAM therapy I developed - ADHD-TriPlan
- achieves 90.9% success within 3 weeks. Success increases to 96.9% after one year. That's academically researched. So people should soon be bashing my door down to be cured of ADHD?
It seems as a race of beings we are too complacent about health, and rely on doctors as the only option available. If a doctor can't cure, that must be that, huh? The evidence though is that sports stars and the rich and famous regularly turn to CAM. For example, Prince Charles is a fervent backer of CAM. England's soccer team had a healer under the manager Glen Hoddle. (We played well under him!) Pat Cash, the tennis star, became a Reiki healer after he was helped by Reiki. I reckon Manchester United employs the best healers, because Man U's doing great! :-)
If someone has a chronic
condition such as asthma, back pain or arthritis, and doctors can't help further, many don't seek help from CAM. They accept their disability and suffer, along with their family and society suffer for the rest of their lives. Some though try CAM therapies. Research studies in doctors surgeries show that 71% of chronic patients doctors can't help, can be helped by healers! :-) If only all patients with chronic conditions saw a healer. There would be sooo much less suffering!
It's worse if people have a condition such as cancer, and wait until doctors can't help any more before seeking CAM. By then it's too late and many die. But some are cured by CAM. A miracle? No just normal. Like the anti-cancer program on www.cancertherapyprogram.com (website almost finished.)
If only all cancer patients received CAM soon after diagnosis. There might be sooo much less suffering!
In my Harley Street clinic, international clinics, and Margate residential therapy centre, my patients were mainly ones doctors could not help further. My success rate, bases on a triangulation assessment of quantitative, qualitative, and limitation data, showed almost everyone improved, and many were cured.
This week I'll publish some of my cases, to show miracles are normal.
My objective is not to have a queue of patients. Been there, done that, with queues from 8.30 in the morning to 1.30 the next morning. No, my objective here is to say, just because doctors can't help you any more, don't give up.
Don't suffer - Google and try something.
Your miracle may be only a few clicks away. :-)
Have you prayed to see miracle cures at Lourdes? I have.
Would you know what to expect from the Knights of Malta? I didn't
Would you cry at the thousands of sick and dying people? I did
It's difficult to envisage how helping others in a small way could help millions in years to come.
The 11th century monk who started a small Jerusalem clinic for sick pilgrims couldn't have envisaged the support it gave to armour-clad knights as they battled to protect Catholic hospitals in wars against against the Turks.
Nor could the monk know it would lead to a unique 21st century global organisation. Members have their own coins,stamps, and passports. They enjoy diplomatic rights with 104 countries, and other rights of a country, without having their own country. (Napoleon expelled them from Malta, the last country they lived in as a group.)
And that monk would not have thought that 900 years later, the Knights of Malta
would consist mainly of rich Catholics who dedicate part of their lives to service. Their annual budget is about $300 million. They are currently opening soup kitchens around destitute Europe, and are responsible for hospitals, leprosariums, laboratories, ambulances services and other projects to help poor, sick, and dying people around the globe.
I met the Knights of Malta when invited by a Harley Street doctor to become one of their Broncardiers. Wearing black battle-dress, black beret, and 'Great Britain' and 'Maltese Cross' badges, my role was to help about 40 sick and dying persons from England travel to Lourdes, then push their wheelchairs, and help with "porter" type duties..
At first sight, Lourdes is not the spiritually happy place one might expect. Spiritual, yes. Happy, certainly not. There are too many sick and dying. No matter how much we may be used to helping sick and dying people, we cannot be prepared for the shock. I met doctors and nurses who travel to help at Lourdes every year - and cry every year.
I met experienced healers there. They said, 'We are not allowed to practise healing in Lourdes. Any miracles must come from Lourdes. Just give out healing thoughts.' I did to the first group of about ten. And the second group of about two hundred. And the third group of about thirty.
By the evening, it felt like shell-shock. I remember standing on a bridge overlooking the bubbling river that runs through Lourdes town centre. Snow-capped Pyrenean mountains glistened in the distance. Another group of about twenty wheelchair-bound invalids passed by, singing hymns. It felt an impossible task to help so many sick and dying. I remember thinking, 'Jesus was one of the best healers who ever lived. What would he have done?'
And I wept...
My tears flowed down the river, helplessly. During the first few days, despite helpers having high levels of Love and Acceptance, many helpers cried.
Few places on Earth could be more emotionally negative. Yet, at the same time, Lourdes was inspirationally positive.
Inspiration came from Les Malades themselves. They were so incredibly cheerful, brave, and kind! Their characters and personalities were treasures to find! Despite pains and ills, they never complained!
Within days, helpers' tear-filled eyes changed to looks of admiration. It was a humbling, learning experience. We were there to help them; they ended up helping us!
Within all this is the holy nature of Lourdes. Especially the Grotto where, in 1858, St Bernadette saw the Virgin Mary on eighteen detailed occasions.
Place a petition for help here when you visit. Who knows, the next miracle at Lourdes could be you!
And if you start a small project to help others like that monk did 900 years ago, God knows how many people could therefore be helped 900 years later.
Perhaps it's time to start a small project?
An IMPORTANT post today, that could help everyone's health on Earth...
We keep hearing anti-biotics won't work in 20 to 30 years time, because of overuse. In worst case scenarios, millions will die, and this planet will be "once again ruled by bacteria". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antibiotic_resistancehttp://www.abc.net.au/science/slab/antibiotics/resistance.htm http://www.acponline.org/patients_families/diseases_conditions/antibiotic_resistance/
Third world countries are often blamed for overuse, for being able to buy antibiotics over the counter. But around the world, doctors routinely prescribe broad spectrum anti-biotics - often without having the faintest idea what bacteria or virus they're prescribing for!!!!!
No wonder so many bacterial infections return, and bacteria are learning how to resist. They're not being killed off fast enough to stop them learning!
Every week I hear Facebook and other friends say their infection hasn't cleared even after doctors try different antibiotics. Hell...!
And multiply these friends by the millions of similar cases there must be around the world every day. Even more hell...!!
Mis-prescribing by doctors is creating hell for the patient who suffers while doctors guess what antibiotic they need, and a hell on earth where bacteria may one day rule.
Here's an idea...Next time you get an infection, ask to have it tested in a lab BEFORE the doctor prescribes antibiotics, to discover which of the many antibiotics will kill ALL your bacteria quickest and easiest.
That way we'll all take less anti-biotics, and bacteria won't so quickly become immune to them.
Lab tests for everyone might cost more in the short term, but less in the long term if it prevents countless diseases and deaths in 20-30 years.
Don't let the doctor make bad guesses for your health - and the health of the world.
Sometimes it seems I'm followed at every step by an army of needy people. The Gods guide them, and me, unwittingly and unconsciously to be beside each other at exactly the right moment. It's rare I leave my home and nothing happens. Today was no exception.
You'd think being in line for boarding a plane would be safe from the Gods' guiding hand? No.
'She used to be so vibrant,' said the tall woman in line behind me, as she took her boarding pass from her Gucci bag. 'She's awful now. How can anyone like her any more? She spends so much time in bed.'
'I agree 100%,' her partner replied. He stood out from the crowd in his white silk suit and Stetson. 'She used to be the life and soul of the party.'
'It's no wonder she's lost all her friends.'
'She's pathetic now. Never goes out.'
'And stays in bed.'
'She said she's in pain, gets dizzy, and loads of stuff, but doctors can't diagnose anything wrong.'
'She's just lazy.'
'One doctor said she should see a psychiatrist and she won't - she's crazy.'
I listened as the rich couple loudly passed judgement on their friend's life. Until I realised...
Perhaps here again was a guidance from the Gods? From the couple's pronouncements it seemed their friend could have ME, or chronic fatigue syndrome? Doctors rarely diagnose the condition, even though the 2003 Canadian Protocols for ME and CFS were accepted by the World Health Organisation for all countries to follow. Oh well, nothing to lose, here we go again...
'Excuse me, this isn't certain, but I might have information to help your friend. May I please ask a few questions..?'
