Dear Family of Light (Friends, Clients, Students, etc.):
It has been a long time since I’ve posted a message on my blog. My car was rear ended back in February, the 14th late day. Unfortunately, I have not been working since the day of my car accident and the injuries I sustained created a re-occurrence of severe pain in my neck and back along with new additional injuries to the discs in my back and a concussion. Fortunately, I had not been to a medical doctor in ten years, nor have I had insurance for just as long; I’ve been healthy. It has been really difficult in getting help for me since the day of the accident—without insurance or having money to pay upfront most doctors would not see me or treat me. Yes, it was the other person’s fault and no their insurance company refuses to pay until I am “done treating”.
As most of you know my story, when I was 28 I was told I would have to endure chronic pain in my neck and back among other ailments for the rest of my life. At that point, I chose to defy the doctors by leaving traditional medicine, leaving my work and learning energy healing and exploring alternative healing. My whole world changed: all chronic conditions were healed, and I remained pain free for several years. The last several years I performed many activities that I would not be able to do if I was still in pain. I actually shoveled snow during our record blizzard the week before my car accident, first time in 20 years, and I had no pain. That is testament to the healing that I have done on me in the past.
I didn’t get proper care until early April; so needless to say, I had still been in acute pain and trauma since February. Thankfully my attorney has been able to get me in to see good doctors, who are willing to wait to be paid. It has been not only taxing physically on me, but emotionally, mentally and financially as well.
Being in pain is not who I am or a new way of life for me, it is simply a sign that I still need to take time to heal and do whatever it takes to make my body physically ready to live life fully once again. I wish to extend my apologies to those of you, who may have reached out to me and have not gotten a response, but I have been away from my phone and computer; it is simply that I am doing what my body needs for repair. In addition, my body is not used to taking medication; therefore, causing terrible side effects. I do believe a full recovery will happen with great care and healing that is necessary over the long term.
I am deeply grateful to those of you who have helped me with your generosity of time and money. I thank you for the many miracles that spirit is shining down upon me through all of you. While I know that there is recovery still ahead of me, I feel your love and support and it gives me hope that all will be well. While this accident on the surface looks horrific and a tragedy for me—please believe me when I say, there are many beautiful gifts that are coming out of this accident for me, and they can only get better. Many lessons have come out of this as well as new opportunities for me to help advocate for others that struggle to get proper care. Please bear with me as I begin to get back into the groove of things! (Keep watching my posts--I have some new insights/discoveries to share.) I thank you for taking the time to read my words.
Love and Blessings. EstaRa (April)
