So last Wednesday I had to go back to Fox Chase Hospital for a follow up from my kidney biopsy.
I had a stent that had to be removed.

The procedure was a cystoscopy, where they had to go back in through my urethra so as to remove the stent.

This would be the fourth time I would be having this procedure.

The first time the pain was so unbearable I never saw that doctor again and can still “feel” it.

The second time was recently. Because of the past pain, I was so nervous going in, but the doctor, after beginning, stopped immediately and said he can’t continue because I have a stricture and the pain would be too great. I understood and I thanked him.

The third time is when they put me under and did the biopsy on my kidney. Of course I was under so I felt no pain.

This would be the fourth time and my memory of the pain was destroying my vibration.
I was stressed, nervous and fearful.

And as you know, when you send out that type of vibration, the universe matches it and sends you back more to be anxious about.
I was a mess.

The day prior, I was trying not to think about it (good luck with that) and as I was reading to stay up with my hometown news, I came upon the following…

It’s about Jasmyn Wright, a third-grade teacher at Frederick Douglass Mastery Charter School in Philadelphia, who was surprised when a video she posted on her Facebook page showing her leading her students in a chant of “I’m going to push though” in the face of adversity went viral after the election. It has over 3.5 million views and because of that she was invited onto the Today show.

She was so awesome, I decided to use her chant as my morning practice for my “day of pain”.

I had a hard time sleeping the night before the procedure so I started practicing this mantra. “I’m going to push through, I’m going to push through”. I kept repeating it over and over throughout the night and into the next morning.

And the most amazing thing happened. There was very little pain and I was done in 30 minutes. I was ecstatic.

Now perhaps it’s because it’s not really a painful procedure and my doctor from years before just wasn’t qualified.

I believe however, that it was because I sent out a vibration that nothing can harm me, and whatever pain, obstacles or challenges arise in my path, I would push through.

Either way… Thank you Miss Wright, and your students at Frederick Douglass Mastery Charter School for helping me change my energy and start sending out a better vibration.

Have a great day, and know you too, can push through,
