Subject: Healing Circle, please --
From: Paul G.
Date: 20 Dec 99 - 09:26 AM

My friend J.U. (that's not an attempt at anonymity, its what we all know him by), is now fighting a recurrence of throat cancer. JU is the lead singer and primary writer for the traditional southern string band Upsala. They were just nominated in the first round for next year's grammy awards (not bad for a non-label, self-produced album). JU is on his way from Florida to Chicago today to see a specialist. We understand the recurrnce is in a particularly difficult place to treat, involving the carotid artery. This is one of our own who, along with his family, need every good vibe we can send his way. Thanks, everybody, and blessings of the season to you all.

Paul G.

May I suggest you ring the Silent Unity prayer group at 1-800-669-0282 and ask them to pray for him also.

Blessings Paul, may the love that surrounded the event of Christmas be with you & your dear friend.

I'm trying to visualize the cancer, to will it to shrink, to will J.U.'s circulatory system to refuse it the blood it needs (there are therapies in various stages of development, both medical and homeopathic, aimed at this specific way of fighting cancer). Perhaps if we focus our energies--our thoughts, our prayers, our rituals--on a specific physiological response we can gain in choral resonance what we lack in individual power. My thoughts are also with J.U.'s spirit and with his family and friends, and those who love his music.

Good for you, Seed. It is important to include visualisation. Seeing his throat area surrounded and glowing with a rich orange, pink, or green healing light could help, along with envisioning the cancer disintegrating, as you suggest. Also, visualising a sucessful outcome of his visit to the doctor.

We did this with my mom and when they opened her up to remove the tumour they were astonished to find it gone! That was her second occurence of cancer. She went on to live another 20 years, cancer-FREE.

I'd like to modify my suggestion a bit: I am having a hard time visualizing the cancer, not having an exact picture of it, of J.U.'s throat, or even of J.U. himself. Would it be more effective if we were to focus our energies to his spirit and let J.U. direct them as needed? Kat, Micca, you guys know a lot more about this kind of thing than I do (I tried helping my brother fight his stomach cancer in this way, but then I could easily visualize him and I had a pretty good idea of where his cancer was and how large it was. My brother was working for a while with a therapist who used such visualization therapy, but I don't think Dave had any real belief in this kind of power--I think he spent most of his energy in the last months of his life trying to prepare himself--and his family--for his death.)

Yeah JU I am on board , I am sufficiently recovered to contribute. I say, Friends of the Mudcat Healing Circle with the Mega Full Moon on the 22nd, lets all focus what stray or purpose-aimed energy at it as an "aiming point" as a special Seasonal healing effort, so that anyone especially Sally, JU, and anyone else who needs the focused energy can get it Including many of our Mudcat friends who are "shy" of asking for things for themselves,and USE it.There is no harm in accepting help and healing Freely given, and is it not a dialogue, "to each according to their needs, from each according to their ability". "All for one, and one for all" BBs andlets make a great effort.

Seed, I think what might be bothering you is the trying to focus on the problem, thus giving it power. Instead, focus on JU healed with no trace left, i.e. a perfectly normal throat, body, etc., all of his body's cells regenerating as healthy, pink and well.

Allison said it well, by focusing on the Light, we are doing everything we can to give healing a chance. By visualising it as a done deal, we are giving thanks that healing has already taken place. Of course, it DOES help if the person believes in this kind of healing work and also that we ask "for this or something better for the highest good of all concerned."

Hope that helps.

I would like to thank Paul for starting this thread. JU is one of the special people in this world. He and his wife, Wanda, have been close personal friends of minefor 10 years and for 30 years with my partner, Andy. We are all in the band together with our friend Billy. JU came through the first trial with this cancer with flying colors and went on to record our CD with us. This time it seems a bit more grim, but he and Wanda are strong individuals with a large network of friends and loved ones supporting them. I will get this thread to them when they are back in the vicinity of a computer. All proceeds from our CD are going directly to JU and Wanda.

Please, everyone direct their best healing thoughts to him tonight and tomorrow. JU's banjo was lost by the airlines on the trip up to Chicago, but the airline found it and it was to be delivered tonight to him there. Thank you, Kristi Upsala

Fellow Mudcatters. Don't allow this thread to end if you feel you have something to add to it.
If you're new at mudcat, be aware that in the year I've been here I've watched this man be in turn, informative, helpful, extremely funny, and cruel to a degree that words cannot describe. The direction of Mudcat is determined by the people who post. There are NO editorial boundries save good taste, and on occasion we have to deal with things like the above. We deal with it by continuing to post what we feel, and we try to ignore....no matter how difficult it seems at the time.

We had good news tonight from JU. He is in the program. He is starting chemotherapy on Sunday. An additional mass that was biopsied today came out negative, to everyone's surprise. As a result, major surgery did not have to happen which would have delayed treatment for three weeks. They also got into an apartment today for reasonable rent.

Those steroids are nasty; I've had quite a few bouts with allergic reactions to meds and the docs always trot out the prednisone. We had an excellent thread which discussed steroids. If you are interested it was called "cortisone for tendonitis?". If you type that in the Quick Search box at the top of the thread title, it should come up.
