Fortunately for me, I do not look at just these things as indicators of how well I am doing as compared to previous experiences. In keeping with the 3-D view of stats, I have experienced several unpleasant dramas in the past 4 years. My daughter and I were on high doses of psychiatric medications for a diagnosis of Bipolar. My husband worked 7 days a week 8-12 hrs a day doing electrical maintenance in the automobile industry. He and I were virtually just roommates due to his work schedule and extreme fatigue. Due to medical bills and my failed attempts at several work at home businesses we had to declare chapter 11 bankruptcy. My daughter barely survived her senior year to graduate due to mental stress and anxiety. Because of the amount of money we make and the bankruptcy we are having a hard time finding the money to get her into a college.
Looking at this through the 3-D lens, things are pretty bad. Not as bad as some to be sure. However, in the last 4 years some amazing experiences have occurred that most likely would not have happened if these 3-D troubles were not there. These are the lasting experiences that have made me appreciate the temporary ones.
In this awakening process that many are going through I was led to different modes of healing that enabled me to get off all the psych drugs I was on. I am “healed” of the debilitation that stripped me of my life and livelihood as my “sanity” is at an all time high. I had been on them for 14 yrs and this has taken its toll on my body but I am slowly getting that back also. My daughter has embraced yoga and the joys of reading a good book to help with her mood swings and anxiety so she is also off all her psych meds.
My husband’s health had started to deteriorate so his doctor put him on a work restriction of only 8hrs per day. His place of employment would not allow him to only work 40hrs per week so he still works 52 but this small concession enabled him to get much needed rest while also spending time with his family. With the extra time, he and I have been communicating more and have become closer emotionally despite his still working quite a bit. His knees and shoulder have gotten better along with his mood improving.
Filing for bankruptcy was so hard emotionally for us. We have always paid our bills and before I had gotten so sick, we had lived within our means. Our ego took quite a blow. Now we have no credit cards so I am not tempted to spend. Our mortgage gets paid through the court so we do not have to get the annoying calls each month even before the payment was due. Our cars were paid for so that was a blessing. We have found there is money enough for what we really need and the utility bills are all that’s left to take care of. This has been a major stress relief for me as I was the one to pay the bills.
My daughter has been doing volunteer work at various places and now seeks a job at our local library. The stress is low so she is flourishing. She gets upset when she sees her friends going to college while she has to sit on the sidelines for a bit but she is getting stronger emotionally and when the funding does come she will be so much more ready to enjoy school. This small set-back will be as nothing when she finally pursues her education. She will also have the advantage of knowing more of what she wants to take and/or be when she finishes.
When I was first diagnosed as Bipolar and had to go on Social Security Disability, I vowed to myself to use this time to help myself and treat it like a job. I scoured books and then the internet for ways to regain my abilities and in the process was able to go beyond my previous ways and understanding. I was a trained Medical Assistant before and now I have finished a Bachelor and Masters degree and am now pursuing a Doctorate in Divinity. I am a lightworker and wayshower, healer and counselor. I have done the work in clearing my emotional baggage. I have held the mirror up to my life and seen the lessons I have learned and will continue to process. I am not a finished product but I am clearing the way for others to follow.
In 3-D my life has been hard. In beyond this present understanding, my life is infinite and amazing. I would do it again to be where I am now for I know in this present time the next 4 years will hold even more experiences that I do not want to miss.
