My Spirit Journey

My Long Over Due Spiritual Quest

Wylie Dean


As most of you know my daughter was pregnant with my first grand child. In June it was discovered he had CPAM that had us all pretty scared. Wylie however continued to grow while the tumors did not. On October 30 at 7:51 Wylie was born.

Because he was considered a high risk baby and needed a team of specialists to be present at his birth AND because my daughter had to travel 6 hours to get to the University of Utah‘s hospital they elected to induce her labor on the 30th. After about 12 hours it was clear Wylie was having problems. Every time my daughter would have a contraction Wylie’s heart rate would drop. My daughter was exhausted but she couldn’t deliver this baby without contractions and Wylie wouldn’t survive too many more so they took her in for an emergency C section. When Wylie was born he was struggling to get oxygen initially but then soon rallied. They kept him in observation for the first night but he was able to stay with mom the next day. Upon taking x-rays to see how these tumors were doing they couldn’t find them. That doesn’t mean they are gone but hopes are high otherwise Wylie will have to have surgery after the holidays to remove them.

I got to go in and see Wylie right after he was born and I was amazed to see a full head of red hair.

Unfortunately it was midnight before my daughter got to see her son and hold him.

And I was amazed how quickly and naturally my daughter took to being a mother. She was born to do this

These blogs are about Lisa the woman and the dog owner and the photographer. I am a 46 year old woman who has experienced a tremendous amount of pain and joy in her life. In the past year alone I have made some big changes such as moving three times, finding peace and growing as a spiritual being. I also am a student as of April 2013 at The Center of Sacred Studies. I discovered the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers from a book a friend lent me and through them I discovered a path I wanted to travel down which led me to CSS. I am at a pivotal time in my life that has me reexamining how I think, feel, pray and interact with others. I invite you to join me as I discover new things about myself and the world at large. I will share with you all I learn and come to know but remember my truth may not be yours. I only encourage to be open and to consider all the possibilities this life has to offer. Namaste
