The Power of Faith
With faith and unwavering belief, nothing’s impossible
I have always held the belief that all my needs in life would be taken care of. I believed my parents, who have both passed, would never have let me become homeless or starve. I believed, even in my younger years when things were tight, scraping change together for a meal, I would never starve.
I’d like to share something with you to illustrate this belief. In September 2014, I returned to the “lower 48” after spending a summer in Alaska. I had spent the previous six weeks sick – unable to breathe, unable to lie flat, which led to sleep deprivation and chronic edema. Unbeknownst to me, it turned out I had congestive heart failure.
On the flight, I remained calm by keeping my breathing in check and praying, over and over, just let me get to the lower 48. I arrived in Seattle at 5:30 a.m. and my best friend took me straight to the emergency room. My only thought was, I just want to feel better.
To put this in perspective, three months prior and living in California, I was laid off from my full-time employer due to budget cuts. That sparked me to travel to Alaska where I completed seasonal employment in somewhat harsh conditions, at least to what I’d been used to. When I arrived at the emergency room in Seattle, I was unemployed and had no health insurance. It might seem unbelievable, but the thought of how I was going to pay my medical bills did not even cross my mind.
Fast forward six months and I was finished with all my procedures, surgeries and cardiac rehab, and was able to return home to Southern California.
Maybe by now you are thinking, “Wow, I wonder how much she’s in debt with medical bills?” The answer is, zero. All my medical bills ended up being covered due to human error. Some may call that divine intervention. I sure do. The hospital happened to send me the statement for my one eight-hour-long surgery. For just those eight hours, the statement totaled $180,000. And I didn’t pay a dime.
In addition to my medical bills being 100 percent paid for, my previous health insurance company insisted on sending me $4,000 to cover some of my claims (they called and called until I answered). Those $4,000 covered the gap between the end of my unemployment insurance and when I started working full-time again.
If the Universe can orchestrate covering what I estimate to be $500,000 to $750,000 in medical expenses, and an additional $4,000, imagine what the Universe can do for you.
The Universe works in miraculous ways. My point is, with faith and unwavering belief, any and all things are possible.
