I am grateful to the doctor who dared and took the initiative and helped me get this out of my body; very skillfully engaging me in conversation and very carefully without any complications. I just needed to check the sugar levels and my BP for this surgery. (I remember for the same surgery I attempted last year and I was given a surgical profile with so many tests that I got tired and fed up of taking all the test s and finally never had the surgery) .I was praying for a long time to be lead to the right doctor to get this issue resolved. Took homeopathy for 6 to 8 months with very little improvement. Finally I am glad that this is over and my wound is already healed to a large extent another week and it will be totally healed.
I have been visiting the doctor practically every evening to get the wound dressed; and with pain killer and antibiotics I have been resting at home, doing minimum work at home and taking a few emergency calls from my counseling centre.

Just last night I had a dream where in I am lifted above the ground level, and been flown by the wind; what I see below is shocking, I see thorny paths, uneven ground, rocky places and no paths to walk, and then I just look up to see myself being just carried away by the breeze smoothly to a place which is peaceful and a few women are sitting and waiting for me.
I land up there effortlessly and take a seat amidst them. Then I start taking sessions on how to learn to rise above all problems in life and how to move along with the wind, the women are so touched, they cry and very impressed with my sharing; and they tell me how they have seen me being flown above rocky grounds and how they have admired me pass through thorny, rocky and uneven paths of life.
I woke up with a smile and was wondering and thinking about this dream for a whole day and felt that I must remember to write it down; perhaps this is connected to my current happenings in life.
“Dreams are guiding words of the soul” Carl Jung
I got up in the morning to make Tiffin for my daughter as her school bus will come by 7.30am but the dream was so vivid that I could not forget and kept it on mulling over it and tried to interpret it in my life; and I found that from September onwards my life has been on rocky path with so many challenges; of diagnosis of dengue, typhoid followed by swelling in the legs, pain in the joints and I have been truly lifted up despite a minor surgery and its discomforts, through it all I found myself sailing smoothly accepting everything, trusting in the lord and believing in myself that there is no short route to victory; and passing through these phases of discomfort and sickness are paths leading to wholeness.
I am thinking of susan scott, who is a inspirational writer and interprets dreams with deep insights, and hopefully will throw some light on my dreamJ One thing is certain I feel quite strong at this moment of my life and motivated and convinced of my own purpose.
Amidst all this there was long distance friend who has travelled all the way from US to celebrate an informal thanksgiving with a few close families and friends from the same parish community.
Then the 13th birthday remembrance of my son Emmanuel which was on the 8th December; reminding us of his presence – we visited the grave and decorated with flowers and candles and shared what we had with the less fortunate children.
What more could I want, my journey in gratitude continues …. Hopefully giving me new direction in the year to come… and leading me to interpret, evolve and find the meaning and purpose for my existence…
