On November 4, 2018, we sent intention to Jesse Polsky, aged 39, a husband and father of two young children who lives in Vancouver, Canada.
His mother, Carol, who nominated her son as an Intention of the Week, described how Jesse had sustained a serious back injury 13 years ago at work, which damaged his spine.
By the time of our intention, he’d already had three back surgeries on the lower vertebrae, the last of which inserted a titanium rod, causing constant pain ever since.
A former martial art teacher and outdoorsy person, Jesse pushed through the pain, but by the time of our intention, his pain had increased, with new severe pain in his hips and leg, caused by a trapped nerve in his spine, plus arthritis, which had developed in both hips.
The nerve pain had become almost unbearable and he was no longer able to work.
Doctors told him he should wait before having a double hip replacement due to his young age; otherwise, he’ll have to have the surgery once or possibly twice more in his lifetime.
With very little hope left, in constant pain and with financial situation becoming dire, Jesse was descending into despair.
We intended for Jesse’s hips and spinal vertebrae to be completely healed.
A few weeks ago, we heard from Jesse, with an update:
“I was fortunate enough that your community intended for a good outcome for my debilitating back and hip problems. The immediate result was a lifting of despair.
“The second result – over a year later, while still off work on disability benefits, and after meetings with a specialist, then a surgeon – was that, serendipitously, and following intuition and guidance, my path has crossed with a physiotherapist being trained in a new protocol of musculoskeletal adjustment.
“It is excruciatingly painful and slow work, but the improvement is such that there is great hope that I can return to work and be pain-free by mid-September, without hip-replacement surgery.
“I can’t thank the community enough for these developments.”
So, well done, everyone. Your intentions are having more impact than you can ever know!
