I ask for healing of cancer (most specifically in the lungs), rhumatoid arthritis (all over but worse in the back and knees) and cataracts (both eyes, she's legally blind right now) for my mother Belle Eloise Collins Cleveland.

She is 76 years old, 5'6", 190 lbs. short white hair, brown eyes. She lives in Gulfport Mississippi.

Also, please pray for my father that his good health will continue and that he will have the strength to get through this time of health crisis in our family.

Thank you,

Please share some energy with my mom-in-law, Eloise, in northern Florida. She is 80 and
in good health, but she is worn out from taking care of her younger sister, Phyllis, who had
a stroke ten months ago. Phyllis has been very depressed and is currently hospitalized for
having taken an overdose of one of her 'scrips. Phyllis is a much-loved "maiden aunt" and a
retired nurse and military officer. Her extended family is worried about her, about Eloise,
and about what to do to help them both and could use some help with clarity. Everyone but
Phyllis has requested this.

Phyllis and Eloise visited us about a month ago. Phyllis has always been a leader and helper
for everyone else, and she is deeply sad at the changes she has experienced. Although she
has lost much weight, mostly from not wanting to eat, the biggest change was loss of her
peripheral vision so that she can no longer drive. Her mind is sharp; she can speak and
move well. When we talked, she did express that she wanted to get to their Winter home
in Florida because she craved sunshine.

Especially in need: Eloise, David, Janet, Judy, Patty, Larry.

I hope for Wisdom, in time of great need. I hope for Love to be present in the teeth of the storm.
I ask for the Ancestors' advice, and I hope for the Gods' and Goddess's blessings upon a difficult
road. May those I love be strengthened, and may I be strengthened to protect and provide.

Hi, all. I hope you will remember my family at the circle...I will try to be there. Things are getting very tight around here...I lost my job in July, and have still not found another one. I am trying to start a home business doing freelance writing, copywriting, and so on, but it has not taken off yet. We aren't starving or anything, but it's getting very hard to make ends meet. I'd really appreciate any energy you could send our way. Abby

This is an updated request for healing for my mother, Belle Eloise Collins Cleveland.
Mom had her cataract surgury, and her cardiac catherization. All went well with both.
She's been tested for brain, throat, liver and kidney cancer and all is clear. Her lung
cancer surgury has been scheduled. She goes into the hospital at 6AM central time
on November 10th (Monday). They will operate on her sometime later that day.

When they go in the first thing they will do is check the lymph system. If there is
cancer there, they will not proceed to do the surgury, but will just close her up and
hope for the best with radiation and chemotherapy. If the lymph system is clear they
will proceed and remove the cancer from the upper lobe of the right lung. This will
probably involve removing the entire upper right lobe.

So far all the tests have come back wonderfully clear and the cancer has not metastized.
We're working on containment and complete removal and a return to good health.

Also, please remember my dad O.B. Cleveland. He and mom have been married
for 54 years and he is worried sick about her. Please help him to stay positive and
to have strength and peace in this most difficult time for our family.

Oh, Lady Brighid, please grant peace to our home, and to our friend Frisco
who is passing from us. Please be good to him and help him find his way,
and heal his mind so that he can be reborn as a healthy kitten and have a
chance at a happy and healthy life. Help us to handle our sorrow and use it
to grow stronger and more compassionate. Please also help us to find other
cats to sponsor who only need love and care and time to meet the right person,
so that they can pass into happy adoptive homes. Please help Dagny, our little
female cat, to handle her anger and bewilderment at Frisco's behavior, and her
grief over losing her companion of ten and a half years. Help us all to be a
comfort to one another, and remind us that life and death and birth are all
necessary parts of the same Dance. We thank you with all our hearts.

In a time of great life stress, I'd like to be thankful amidst the storm...

Sad partings have made new beginnings,

Relationships are changed utterly, but sometimes strengthened, not ended.

My blessings are counted by those I love, and by those who love me, freely.

It feels as though I might be learning something, after all.

Before my Beloved Brighid and ye here attending her Flame, I place my need 
for a good, stable, well-paying job.  I work in the insurance industry which is 
in great turmoil at this time.  I have been laid off three times in the past four years, 
mostly as their way of saving money - last hired, first fired.  I support a very 
spiritual person who is disabled and who needs my help to get adequate medical 
care for "disability payments" are not adequate for the needs of the disabled.  
So, while I could be quite happy with a simple life, my needs as a caretaker are 
great.  So I place this my need before the Flame, having sent seven arrows 
(resumes) into the air.  I know that my skills are good and my effort is true.

Thank You and May Blessings Come to Ye as Well....

Most wise and compassionate Lady Brighid, I ask Your blessing and aid for our friend Kay, who has had a recurrence of cancer cells in her back. We would gladly see her well and whole again to dance this cycle of her life; it would be our joy to see her healed to give glad thanks to You. This is a long-running problem, as I’m sure You know in Your Wisdom, and has metastasized from someplace they thought the treatments had won. If it is time for this bright soul to return home and begin anew, please ease any pain and fear, and show her the joy to come... Lady of Fire, don’t let the fire of life and joy and enthusiasm flicker out and die in this vivid being. Our thanks and praise to You.

Will you Please add my adopted sister Janet to the prayer list. She is having some very serious allergy reactions to something unknown. We were to meet in Illinois in 2 weeks but that may not be possible now due to the problems she is having. Below is a part of the note she sent to me tonight.

I got hit with the worse allergy attack on Monday that blew my face and neck up. Kevin took me to the doctor because I was having trouble breathing and I could hardly open my eyes. My eyes looked like two tennis balls...they were swollen shut. I have had something simular to this...but not this bad...it has happened 5 times since last Thanksgiving. Anyway...they gave me a shot of cortizone and then a 5 day pack to take. Im a bit better now...but have to go to a specialist on Thursday to have a graph done to try and find out what I might have reacted to.

I am worried about my sister, so any prayers you can send to her will be deeply appreciated

Thank You

Hi my name is Treva and I am new to the list. My request is for my youngest son Melvin. Three weeks ago he broke his femur into three pieces about four inches below the hip. The doctors pinned and he is in a body cast. The problem is that there is still no new bone growth around the break. The doctors say that this could lead to serious problems if he doesn't start growing new bone. I would like to request healing energy for my son. Thank you.

Dear Brighid and Cernunnos,

I ask you for help with my friend's friend, Howard. He is gravely ill and she might have to help him cross the veil soon. If he can be healed I ask that he be healed and returned to strong and vigourous life.

If he cannot be healed and if this is truly his time to crossover, please take him quickly and painlessly before she has to help him over.

He depleted his lifeforce aiding her loved one. We ask that he be honored among his people and by his gods and spirit chiefs... and if he chooses, that he be returned to her in this lifetime when he is ready.

Blessed be Howard, magical cat and lifelong companion.

Your radiant smile and generous arms embrace all your children, but sometimes we forget. Help us raise our faces to your yours, to drink from your healing well. To breathe the winds of your inspiration.

I have come to a crossroads in my life, and I see great sacrifice coupled with great fulfillment. Please grant me the clarity to see my path as it is. Help me to make choices that are right for me, choices that are in harmony with your graces. Lend me the strength to create my own destiny, to blaze my path, to reach my dreams and beyond. Walk with me, O Lady. Shine your living light on the darkness of the days to come, and let me feel the sparks of your smile in my head. Your inspiration illuminates me and guides me along my way...

Good Brighid,

I ask for guidance and clarity with the life I lead, and the patience to withstand the pain I feel inside. I beg from all of Spirit nurturance and release of my splintered conscience—my violent thoughts, my impatience, my terrifying rush to disappear from conflict and life itself when the pain is intense. Please sustain me as I work through the trials of my relationship, to find peace and comforting quiet in it. I pray for the little spirit who left my spouse and me, for forgiveness and sympathy. May the healing fires burn through and through the torturous callous surrounding me heart, and fill me with Light and Love. May these difficult times be deemed trivial, inconsequential.

With deep humility,

My friend, the esteemed bard, one of Your best, is having a rough time of it, as you probably already know. I would ask that You do something, anything, to ease his illness and delay deterioration for as long as possible. He is a good person and a wise man, a fellow Druid, with many important responsibilities and good ideas, and we would like to have the benefit of his wisdom in this world for a long time to come.

I also ask that you help his family through this troubling time. May we create together and immerse him into the Well of Sla/n.
