Turning a Stroke
Into One of Good Luck
by David Stewart
You may have wondered why this issue of The Raindrop Messenger
is a month late and why it will now be broadcast seasonally four times a year
instead of bimonthly, six times annually, as it has been until now. This was to
have been the May-June 2012 issue, but has now become the Summer (July, Aug,
Sept) 2012 issue. The next issue will be for Fall 2012 (Oct, Nov,
On Sunday, May 27, 2012, which was American Memorial Day, I had
a dizzy spell and almost fell over head first while visiting graves of relatives
in the cemetery with my wife, Lee. I drove home, relaxed in an easy chair, and
fell asleep for the afternoon. Several hours later I awoke and tried to get up
and walk. I did not realize that my right leg and arm were paralyzed. While
attempting to stand up, I fell over and cracked a rib. It was not until after
then that I came to realize that I had suffered a stroke. By then, it was
getting late in the evening.
The next morning my wife, Lee, and son, Anthony, took me to the
nearest hospital, which is in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, 32 miles away. I didn't
come home until two weeks later, June 12th. I used a wheelchair while in the
hospital, but left using a walker. Since Friday, July 20, I have graduated to a
cane and can get around the house and most places without any artificial
support, although I sometimes stagger and feel like Frankenstein.
I also lost the full use of my right hand, which is serious for
me since I play the piano and organ. I have gradually worked my way back to the
second grade level of piano and the last two Sundays (July 15 and 22) I was able
to once again play the organ for the service in my church while Lee played the
piano with me.
I am still a long way from complete recovery and won't be
playing a Beethoven Sonata or the Maple Leaf Rag for a while, as I used to do.
Nor will I be entering any marathons or doing any mountain climbing as yet. but
I do expect a total recovery to where I was and even better.
My recovery is much faster than the doctors and therapists
expected and I continue to improve daily. I attribute this to the hundreds of
prayers intended for my personal healing from Young Living friends around the
world. My thanks is not enough to express my appreciation for the love I have
received from so many. I am humbled and grateful for that.
I am taking capsules of Helichrysum
and Cypress and have been anointing my head with a combination of
Frankincense, Palo Santo, Juniper, and Balsam Fir. I have also been
anointed with AromaLife and TraumaLife. The hospital doctors put me on
Plavix(r) to thin my blood, Lipitor(r) to lower my cholesterol, and Prinivil(r)
to lower my blood pressure with the idea of preventing another stroke, and
wanted me to continue indefinitely after I left. But I quit all of these when I
I eat raw
ginger root daily (which I like) to keep my blood thin, so who needs
Plavix? I take capsules of Lemongrass oil orally to control cholesterol,
so who needs Lipitor? As for my blood pressure, I measure it at home and it is
perfectly normal, so why would I need Prinivil? The only high blood pressure I
had was in the hospital which, the doctors tell me, is commonly induced by being
in a hospital or by the presence of professionals in white coats. In fact, they
jokingly call such high blood pressure the "white coat
I also take Vitamin B12, which you buy in a health food
store, and also two tablets of Young Living Super B each day to keep my blood
vessels dilated and healthy. I also take 8 gel caps of Young Living Omega Blue,
which will help regenerate my brain and, since they contain lemongrass, will
also help lower cholesterol. I also take True Source, Detoxzyme,
Essenialzyme-4, and Live 5.
To top everything off, I drink Slique tea every morning with
3-4 ounces of NingXia Red. I have lost 16 pounds since May.
have also received a number of Raindrop sessions, including the regular version
as well as a Vibrational Raindrop from my son, Anthony, a Raindrop with Colored
Lights from Michelle Truman, and a "Group Raindrop" with approximately 20 CARE
Instructors participating. With so many healing hands and the abundance of
prayers received, I have no choice but to to heal, rapidly and
I continue to play scales and exercises on the piano as therapy
for my right hand in order to regain the technique I used to have. I have
reached the level of playing some Bach Inventions slowly. Bumble Boogie will
I also do the leg exercises prescribed by the physical
therapists at the hospital and am now doing 10-20 minutes on the treadmill
several times a week, trying to go at least half-a-mile each
Immersed in the ocean of healing vibrations at the Young Living
Grand Convention this year, I improved steadily a little every day. This year at
Young Living I had to use a walker, but next year I won't be just walking, I
intend to run across the stage as a New Diamond.
Meanwhile, I have not forgotten my priorities to continue to
seek God first and to maintain my sense of gratitude and thankfulness at all
times. Truly, "My cup runneth over."
