To be honest I can’t think of a time that I was saved from a sticky situation. I’m sure there were times that I was.
When I was born I hear I was very sick. I had jaundice and had to have a full blood transfusion. I was baptized the day after I was born because they thought I was going to die. Christians believe that un-baptized people won’t get into heaven. They thought I was going to die but I believe I was meant to live, so I survived.
About fifteen years ago I had a sinus infection and was prescribed antibiotics that I didn’t know I was allergic too. I laid in bed with a high fever, pain and diarrhea. All I wanted to do was sleep. My ex washed me, dressed me and drove me to the emergency room. Had he not gotten me to the hospital when he did I would have died. I had custody of a sixteen year old girl. While I was recovering my daughter and her friends took my car. My ex let them. On their way back they got into a terrible accident. The young girl who was in my charge died. I believed for a long time that she took my place that I was supposed to die.
Eight years ago I was having difficulty breathing. I couldn’t walk a few steps without stopping to catch my breath. I didn’t have health insurance so I didn’t want to go to a doctor and create a bill. One day after work I went to the emergency room. They put me right on a stretcher and stuck oxygen on my nose. I was told I had COPD and possibly lupus. When I went for my follow up visits I was told I was very sick. I was told I wasn’t going to live. When I got insurance I had a test that diagnosed me with pulmonary hypertension. It’s a condition where the blood doesn’t flow easily from my lungs to my heart. I was put on a cocktail of medication and got better. One of my doctor’s, every time I go for an appointment says, “I don’t believe how well you’re doing.” I was supposed to die. But I live. Would I call that “Saved By the Bell” maybe. Or maybe I have a purpose that hasn’t been filled. Either way I may have cheated death a few times.
We hear about accidents that happen and a witness will say. I just left that spot or I was just about to go there. That could have been me. I believe that we make our own fate to a degree. If something is for us it’s ours. If not then what will be, will be. I believe in karma, that we get out of life what we put into it. If one is gentle and caring the universe will gift them with goodness in kind. If one behaves evil and thoughtless then the universe will give them their just due. Again if it’s for you, you’ll get it. If it’s not then it’s not.
It is my belief that we are all connected and the vibrations of nature keep us going. It’s our living battery. Nothing that happens to us is a coincidence maybe a happy surprise. Or at best a blessing that certain things didn’t happen when we thought it could have been me.
