THIS is How I Conquered my Fear…

Erase FearI'm finally back in Australia after my trip to South-Africa. I had some awe-inspiring adventures in the Bushveld (more on that later), but the experience I'd most like to share with you, is an event of anguish and paralysing fear, and the immense power of an unyielding faith that all is well, no matter what!

About two days before my return to Australia, I received word that my one-year old grandson had been airlifted to the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane with suspected meningitis. At that time baby Chase wasn't breathing on his own, and it was clear from my communications with my daughter that the prognosis was dire. He was admitted to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), where a team of specialists attended to him. He was subjected to a lumbar puncture, CT scans and a number of ultrasounds. They struggled to administer an IV because his veins kept collapsing, and after more than 30 attempts, and when all other options were exhausted, a femoral line was inserted, which was quite a painful procedure in itself.

It's hard to describe the emotions I felt when I thought of what that little body was going through. There was a part of me that was paralysed with the fear of losing Chase… and another part of me that was rational enough to know that I had to practice everything I knew about conquering fear. I didn't want to sent out that kind of negative energy into the universe, and I recognised that my daughter and grandson needed to lean on my faith. But I have to tell you… I had to work at dealing with the terror that threatened to engulf me. The only thing that I could think of doing was practicing a psychological technique that I often teach my clients during challenging times to dramatically reduce any feelings of worry, anxiety, and fear.

At the same time I requested prayers in our Soulwoman Sanctuary Inner Circle, and was met with an outpouring of love. I couldn't get back to Australia any sooner than I'd originally planned, but as I worked at managing my feelings of fear, I was able to access this deep, unshakable KNOWING that all was well. I was absolutely calm, meditating non-stop, and sending positive thoughts to Chase across time and space. I kept reassuring him that he wasn't alone, that angels were attending to him, and all he had to do was simply rest in our love.

Just before boarding my plane to Sydney, I was informed that meningitis had been ruled out, and that Chase was breathing on his own. Two abscesses were found in this throat that had become septic, but at least they knew what to treat him for. He was pumped full of antibiotics, and slowly started to recover. By the time I reached Australia, he was already out of PICU, and a couple of days later, I received a photo of him sitting up in his hospital bed, clearly on his way back to health and wellbeing.

My gratitude is immense.

I'm utterly thankful for his recovery, and I'm so pleased that I knew how to manage my fear so I didn't fall apart, and instead remained in a space of resolute faith throughout the whole ordeal. And now I would love to teach YOU the technique that I used to manage my fearful feelings because truthfully, you simply never know when you're going to need it. This psychological technique works equally well to manage acute fear, and for chronic anxiety, worrying and feelings of doubt.

It's called 'A Simple and Effective Therapeutic Technique to Radically Transform Your Biggest Fear'. This online training runs for about 40 minutes, and it's my GIFT to you.

  1. *whew* Didn't know there was going to be a math test to post! Can you believe I almost said 5-6=1?? Yes, that's why I went to art school.

    All kidding aside, Mia…it is so good to have you back and I'm very happy to hear the nightmare ended well. Very scary stuff. Nothing worse than being miles and miles away, unable to help and do nothing but wait on news.

    I'm finding that as nasty as the internet can be at times, there are still pockets of beautiful hope. We find it in things like prayer requests, where hundreds and sometimes thousands of individuals send out the good mojo to help others. I'm a strong believer in the power that energy carries and I'm so glad it found its way to your grandson. May it continue to be so.

      Appreciate your comment so much, Deb. And it's so true… where would we be without the power of prayer? I'm so grateful for an online community who are willing to send positive energy when needed. Sending good vibes YOUR way. :)

  2. As a parent, I can imagine the fear that you felt for your grandson and daughter. Praising the Lord that Chase is okay and recovering well. When I feel fear, I pray and read scripture. It usually helps me to feel peace and comfort. Thanks for sharing. God bless you.

      Chase is doing well, thanks so much, Ivette. He is scheduled for surgery and September (still waiting for him to get a little bit stronger), and he needs dental work as well as his front teeth were cracked when he was intubated. But he's a happy little boy and we're so grateful for his recovery. Blessings to you too! xo

  3. That was terrifying! My grandmother's heart was in my throat the entire time I was reading that! SOOOO very glad everything came out well. 

    I believe in miracles. I believe in prayer. I thank God your family had one. 

  4. What a great time to have a skil that keeps you in faith versus fear.  I've always remembered the saying that the waves will always keep coming but the key is to learn to surf and it sounds like you have a surfing lesson!

  5. I know that fear Mia. My oldest was direly ill at the age of 8, bleeding internally all over from his lips and ears, even just a touch created a bruise. The liteny of tests and not being able to help him was awful. In those days I kept it together for him, not even understanding how I was remaining so calm. Faith, unwaivering faith, friends and family. He came out fine 4 days later and hasn't been ill since, thank God! I am so glad your grandson is on the mend as well :)

  6. Mia I must admit I was scared to read this post. I'd seen the photos of little Chase with all the tubes that you posted in the facebook group. I was afraid this story would take me back to a personal experience I won't go into here. However your outcome is inspiring and uplifting. I'm sure your technique will benefit many. Hugs to you.
