An amazing story autowrench, about your son with healing powers.
Actually, while I consider myself a rationalist mainly, there are probably unexplained things in all our life stories.
While my father's pursuit of a cure was not so fruitful, my mother on the other hand had a different experience, perhaps bordering on the
"supernatural". She became so ill she was hospitalized, and was there for over a month, with headaches so terrible that only opiates seemed to
help. A mysterious Catholic "priest", reputed to have healing power was informed of her condition (she never asked to see anyone...maybe she
didn't believe, or didn't feel she was worthy...who knows?), but anyway, he showed up, and placed his hands on her head. That was it! She was
apparently instantly healed.
I often put quotes around that word "healed" when speaking of these kinds of things, because who knows what is really going on. But in my mother's
case, she lived another 25 years, and headaches didn't come back. In her particular case, something happened, I don't know what, but she was
definitely healed in the real and usual sense of that word. Further, I don't even think she was coherent when this guy showed up, she was probably
heavily drugged, so I can't even really imagine that it was some hypnotic effect. Unexplained.
As for your son, he sounds like he could find very-high paying work as a healer! I don't say this with any facetious intent, not at all. I
recognize the "unexplained", even though I'm not a religionist, and have no explanations of my own. I also had a neck injury back in 1980 that
never quite healed properly, and if I knew someone like your son, I can't tell you how much it would be "worth" to not have pain in my neck!
I've read some of your posts on other topics, I see that you understand the religious / Christian framework very well, but I also find it interesting
that you identify as "Wiccan", as well as your reference to "Goddess". Coming from someone else, I might easily just write them off! But
seriously, I have read enough of what you post to know that you are a rational person.
How this relates to the topic? Not sure, but if I was to guess, you must think of your "awakening" from the lies of Christianity/Bible to be a kind
of "ascension" from that abyss of nonsense, and yet, you find yourself in sort of a rare position (at least I think Wicca is still fairly rare), and
you also clearly believe in "miracles", at least in the case of your own healing. Interesting.
