Earlier this summer I spent a lovely time discovering what a Kidney Stone episode is. I am so very grateful for the kind and compassionate care from my husband, BFF and clinical staff at our local ER. I am happy to say I came out of an excruciatingly painful situation wearing a smile. (sounds like my divorce) I even received a deep “AH HA”, please indulge me for a moment.
Mustard Seed vs. Kidney Stone
Ladies and Gentleman welcome to the main event.
In this corner, defending her title as the most powerful molecule, also known as “Faith Incarnate”, we have the infamous Mustard Seed…
“Mustard seeds are the small round seeds of various mustard plants. The seeds are usually about 1 to 2 millimeters (0.039 to 0.079 in) in diameter and may be colored from yellowish white to black.” -Wikipedia-
The mustard seed has been used by the Christian faith to depict how teeny tiny our faith (love) needs to be to create miracles in our life and the lives of others. “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – NIV Mathew 17:20-
… And in this corner we have bile in crystal form, known for bringing men to their knees, Kidney Stone…
“The smaller the kidney stone, the more likely it will pass on its own. If it is smaller than 5 mm (1/5 inch), there is a 90% chance it will pass without further intervention. If the stone is between 5 mm and 10 mm, the odds are 50%.” -Wikipedia-
Kidney Stones, according to Messages from the Body by Michael J. Lincoln, Ph.D., are “Angry despair.” “There is a large store of unshed tears, fears and sadness arising from old issues that should have been released but have been instead held onto. They are also storing resentments and holding grudges in such a manner as to result in crystallizations of their rage in the form of stones.”
All silliness aside, we are talking millimeters here! Molecules of Emotional Energy powerful enough to move a mountain or take down the biggest, strongest and/or most centered person you can think of. As my soul sister put it “until the day that she is able to levitate and no longer requires food to live, the only way she knows out of a Kidney Stone episode is super strong IV pain medication”.
Faith’s (love) vibration when put to use can change a person’s life in the utmost powerful way. Let me add here, that this same vibration of love can change our outer world.
Anger’s (fear) vibration when unchecked can change a person’s life in the most devastatingly powerful way. Equally so, fear can destroy our outer world.
It is our choice, a 2 mm seed of Love or 2 mm seed of Fear? Today I’m going to shed the tears that need to be loosed and let go of fears and sadness from old issues and go out and plant my seeds of love. Won’t you join me?
I wrote this tidbit at the beginning of Summer 2017. Today August 21, 2017, I realized that our country and world are experiencing a major kidney stone episode. An episode of “Angry Despair”. It’s time to lose the resentments and grudges, and step into love for our fellow man. As a wise man once said, “Turn off the news and love your neighbor”
