Yesterday I spoke to a good friend of mine and she made my day. So today, I want to write about touching other people's lives and how, sometimes, we dont even know we have.
We are more powerful than we think.
Few months a really good friend of mine told me how unwell she was, suffered insomnia, shakes, night sweats, chronic pain that was affecting her ability to work and her medication was also affecting her concentration, moods, etc.
Doctors kept prescribing her with strong pharmaceuticals but she was not getting better and they could not find what was wrong.
That night, I was very worried about her and she doesn't live in Australia, so I couldn't share directly with her what I do, to try to help her out.
My feeling was that a lot of her problems where coming from her mind, so I wrote her a very long email explaining my concerns and where I was coming from.
I told her from my heart where I could see these issues ending and I did not want her to suffer anymore, it was not necessary if she made a decision to make some small changes in her life.
I suggested to try meditation, yoga and reflection. Also to see a holistic counselor who could give her some guidance and support.
I did not hear back from her for a while, I thought she would have read my email and forget about it, as it can be very difficult to change how we do things.
Last night I received a call from her and she told me she was getting better, the pain was less, she was sleeping and had managed to reduce some of the medication she has been taking for such long time.
I was happy to hear that and even HAPPIER as she told me that had taken on board my email and ideas and started practicing daily guided meditation, listening to a guided sleep meditation and is going to see a counselor in the coming month. She was calmer, sounded hopeful and happier.
I had the biggest smile on my face as I heard the news. I know, if she persists, will have a chance to find a new way to see life and enjoy it more fully with better health and presence.
It is amazing how we all can touch each others lives, that is why I love sharing my experiences, what I am learning and listening to other's perspectives, stories and ideas.
SHARE, you never know when you can have a positive impact in someone's life or even change it forever.
