Gratitude and Serendipity

With only 200 pesos on hand, I spent P88 to buy detergent. I felt a miracle was coming and that God would provide my needs. Last March 19, I prayed at Mass on the Feast of St. Joseph. After the mass, prayed-over pieces of bread were distributed to the community. It was called St. Joseph's bread. It was the first time that it was done in our parish.

I brought home a piece of bread, cut it into 9 slices and shared it with the ones at home. In my heart, I felt the bread was going to bring us food or blessings daily. A few days ago, we were all like starving at home. We didn't have enough money to buy food for us. It's kind of pathetic but I was being positive. I bought 1.5 liters of Coke to made us feel that as if we had nothing to eat more.

With P200 on hand, I saved P100 for the detergent and the remaining to buy lotto tickets. I was feeling lucky today. Before I went home, I stopped by an ATM. I thought I should check my account. With a quick prayer, a wish, and a visualization of seeing P5000 in my account, I was surprised to see P5000 in my account.

I had to share my blessings so I thought of buying 5 kilos of rice for my family. Then, I went to my room and thought of thanking God by way of meditation. I Googled the Net on how to meditate and it brought me to 108 Meditation techniques. I clicked the number 1 item, which was Visualization of Cellular Healing. I didn't know how a healthy cell looked like, so I Googled the Net again. The result page showed four images of healthy cells. I clicked the first image and it brought me to 48-Hour Fasting May Help Healthy Cells Survive Chemotherapy. It's interesting to know how fasting can help our healthy cells be protected from chemotherapy, so I thought of sharing the article on my blog hoping patients who are undergoing chemotherapy may find it helpful.

Then I clicked on the second image of healthy cells which brought me to the Sound/Cellular Research . I found the site very interesting. The research shows photos of how cells reacted to sounds. The cells transform into auric light of varying colors. If at rest, the healthy cell is blue. If reacting to a sound, it's usually pink. Based on the photographs, pink appears to be the color of healing. I would suggest clinics and hospital rooms be painted pink.

I proceeded to my meditation. I couldn't afford to buy a pair of eyeglasses. For many months now, I had to endure working with a blurry vision. So, I thought of meditating on the healing of my eyes. I pictured pink light on my eyes and visualized the blue and pink images of healthy cells. After the meditation, I opened my eyes. A few minutes after, I noticed that it actually helped.

I'm a devotee of Mary, Help of Christians. This Marian icon's color happens to be blue and pink. Coincidental? May be not! Nothing happens by chance.  I am happy for what I discovered. Truly, everything happens for a reason.

Thanks be to God!
