Choosing: Deciding on the Dream

A dream cannot come true unless you dream that dream.

--Oscar Hammerstein

>Set Your Intention

>Test Your Dream with Five Essential Questions

>Commit to Your Dream

My son John was just under a year old when I collapsed with a life-threatening kidney disease. The shame and guilt resulting from my unplanned pregnancy had continued to fester to the point that my toxic feelings literally poisoned my body. Tests revealed that my right kidney, ravaged by infection, was sending waste throughout my body, while the left kidney was failing quickly. The doctors gave me six months to live.

The night before I was scheduled to have surgery to remove my right kidney, a minister named Dr. Mila Warn visited me in the hospital. My mother-in-law had heard her preach, and she had asked Dr. Warn to stop by and talk with me.

Maybe she can help, my mother-in-law told me.

I was doubtful. Even though I'd grown up going to church, I hadn't attended services for the past few years, and I didn't for a minute believe a minister could do anything about malfunctioning internal organs. But if she wanted to pray for me, I wouldn't object. At least, I told myself, a new face would help pass what I anticipated would be a very long evening.

The first thing Dr. Warn did was hand me a pamphlet containing the teachings of Emmet Fox. It was called The Mental Equivalent. She pointed to a passage that read:

Whatever enters into your life is but the material expression of some belief in your own mind. The kind of body you have, the kind of home you have, the kind of work you do, the kind of people you meet are all conditioned by and correspond to the deepest mental concepts you hold.

Great, I thought. So my bitter thoughts had killed my kidney, and now they were killing me. It was my fault I was dying. Somehow I didn't feel terribly comforted.

Dr. Warn told me to stop focusing on the past. What I needed to do, she said, was make a decision about my future. Whatever I deeply believed would ultimately greatly influence the outcome of my illness. Can you believe that you don't need surgery and that both your kidneys are perfect? she asked.

No, I can't believe that, I answered truthfully. The tremendous pain in my back could not be denied.

Then try this, she encouraged. Think about the right kidney as the repository of all that is presently toxic in your life. Can you do that?

This I could handle. My insides felt painfully noxious. I told Dr. Warn the story of my disgrace, the feelings of humiliation that still haunted me.

So imagine, she said, that when the kidney leaves your body, the toxicity that has been poisoning your life will disappear as well. All your guilt and shame about the pregnancy or anything else can then also be removed. Then, with all the poison gone, your other kidney will no longer be diseased.

While tests
