Spiritual Evolution

Every time I travel to Austin, Texas, several people tell me that they have read my blog and many of these people tell me that my blog is the reason they came to see Francis the healer. It is amazing that even during this time where I have completed zero journal entries, the blog continues to impact people’s lives. For the people who go to see Francis because of my blog, this impact is not a small one, for Francis literally heals the hearts of individuals and facilitates the priceless path of spiritual growth.

To catch everyone up on my physical recovery, I continue to tell a similar story. Strong physical recovery which changes the quality of my life has yet to occur, yet at the same time I feel a powerful healing energy coursing through my body which tells me the recovery which I seek is inevitable. There has been some visible physical recovery. I have a strong increase of sensation throughout my body, my core strength and balance is much better, as well as the coordination in my arms. I’m extremely healthy, and no longer do I look like a sick individual as I did several years ago. I also feel a strong connection to all muscles in my body and telling the muscle to contract is not the problem. Many spinal cord injuries cannot even perform this task.

I recently came back from a trip to see Francis and yet again I was blown away by the healing power and mind blowing awareness that something beyond my comprehension was occurring. Every trip it seems the healing energy cannot get any more powerful, yet time and time again the healing experience surges in strength. My last day with Francis, I laid on the treatment table and felt my body tremmoring; buzzing sensations and heat spread through my body as I felt an uncontrollable urge to jump up and cast away the shackles of paralysis. All the while I was so amazed at the experience I have been given to understand that this physical life is so much more than it seems and that God is present in every aspect of our lives.

I stayed for three weeks this trip instead of my usual two, and received healing energy every day except one. I experienced the generosity of many individuals who offered their services to me. I received many massages, acupuncture, Ayurvedic treatments, and manual therapies. I felt the loving service of all of them as they were willing to offer any help they could to help me reach my goal of complete physical recovery. The trip was wonderfully intense and I am also grateful that I was blessed with the ability to finish my school work as well.

My mindset now that I’m back in Atlanta is one of hope. Francis tells me that the energy is there and it is only a matter of time before my body comes back to life. Exercise is key he believes to recharge the muscles and to get them functioning as they once did. I have been in this situation many times, coming back and believing that now was my time for recovery. Unfortunately my expectations have been dashed in the past, so I cannot help but be cautiously optimistic.

Even though I have yet to experience the quantum leaps of recovery which I envision, I am fully aware that this experience has been a grand opportunity. I’m aware that more than physical healing I am being provided the opportunity to further my spiritual evolution. All the people I’ve met, all the experiences I’ve gone through, have provided me with the opportunity to grow closer to God and to work through the spiritual hardships necessary to fulfill my grand eternal purpose. I honestly do not know the exact nature is of this purpose, except that it involves connecting with a peaceful presence within myself and throughout existence. It involves never giving in to the idea that suffering is meant to last forever, but is simply a necessary and temporary step towards discovering peace and serenity. This journey of spiritual evolution is no easy task, but to do so fulfills the greatest purpose one can strive for and in this moment, I am grateful.

    Colin –
    I periodically check your blog under my fav’s to see if there’s a post, and was beginning to wonder if maybe there would be no more. So it was a great Monday surprise!

    Glad you are doing well! It’s important that you feel change, even if it doesn’t translate to a physical total you or others might have imagined. I struggle with the same – in so many ways it isn’t adding up to the total I imagined, but nonetheless it’s different than it was, so I remain hopeful that I will get there – and hope is very important! And you’re right, I think excercise is very important – real excercise, not just the workout that is moving your body around in it’s current state, because I know THAT feels like a real workout!

    It doesn’t surprise me at all that your blog is recognized, you are a really good communicator and I feel the tale of your spiritual journey helps me further consider my own. I have visited Francis’ site from reading it on your blog. I see they work over the phone – do you have any thoughts about the merits of that?

      Hi Lisa,
      Thank you for the comment. I have not heard of Francis doing healing over the phone though I’m sure he is completely capable of doing so. Over time I have felt a stronger and stronger connection with Francis as far as distant healing goes. I now feel that a simple mental connection with Francis and asking for healing is enough for him to send it to me. Just to be safe however, I send him regular e-mails and can tell when he is sending me energy. I also have a photo of Francis, which helps me to connect with him and receive energy as well.

    Hi Colin! Not sure if you remember me…we used to talk back in the MSN Spaces days. It’s been awhile!

    It seems as though you are making progress! I am so happy to hear it! You are definitely dedicated and I admire your determination and your spirit!

    Colin!!!! I inadvertently deleted my whole blog!! I just figured out how to get back to you as my contact list seemed hidden but was there all along! I return to find that you have just returned from Francis! How wonderful! I miss reading about you and our talks back and forth. You have been so instrumental in my recovery as I felt I was travelling along with a friend and that was a great comfort in uncomfortable times, actually in all times. That is so cool that people say hello at Francis’ through knowing you from your blog and words and inspiration! SO wonderful. I have missed you but have thought of you, dream big!! Patti
