Maha Lakshmi's Prasad - A Gift

At 2 a.m. this morning I was praying for my lovely daughter-in-law who has Multiple Sclerosis. She was diagnosed in college with this illness 10 years ago. Her father is a doctor and he, along with a specialist doctor in this illness, advised her to use a newly developed medicine. She did this and her illness went into total remission - that is, she had no symptoms.
Then 4 years ago, she discontinued taking the medicine to have a child. This process took over a year. She had mild symptoms during and after the pregnancy for a short time. After the baby boy was born, she soon began taking the medicine once more and was symptom free again. Then over 2 years ago she stopped the medicine again to have a second child. Her symptoms returned – that is numbness in various parts of the body which skipped around from place to place during and up to this time two years later. She has now been back taking the medicine since the child was born 18 months ago.  Her outside work is as a Dental Hygienist and now this numbness in her hands affects her work as well as at home and with her children, driving a car and all actions in which one uses the hands. Of course, her family and friends are concerned and are praying for her.

This daughter-in-law is a wonderful, gentle, kind and loving person. She is an excellent wife and mother. And she is a faithful, devout Christian.

As I prayed to Divine Mother In the aspect of Maha Lakshmi, I was with Her in the etheric, kneeling in front of her, seeing and hearing her. I asked Her: “Divine Mother, as you know, my Satguru Swami Vishwananda told us in one recent Guru Purnima: “If you pray to Divine Mother in My Name, and if it is beneficial, she will answer your prayer and give you what you ask.”  Now, in the name of Swami Vishwananda, I respectfully and humbly ask You to heal my daughter-in-law of this disease, who is like You, beautiful inside and out.”

Maha Lakshmi made her right hand into a fist and placed it at my crown chakra and tapped very strongly three times. I felt something growing out of my crown and stretching upward and then it stopped. Divine Mother took this object from the top of my head and clasped both of my hands around a beautiful pristine, white Easter Lilly, which was fresh with water droplets that glistened in Her Light. I thought: “How is it that Maha Lakshmi is giving me this Easter Lilly as it is associated with Christ Jesus and Her flower is the lotus flower?”

Divine Mother Maha Lakshmi smiled at me and said, in gentle chastisement: “When you pray for this daughter-in-law, you pray in the name of Jesus Christ.” (Please remember I said this daughter-in-law is a devout Christian).  I then remembered that Gurudev has taught us: “When you pray to Jesus Christ and if Nrsimhadev would show up, you know what will happen!” And then I understood Divine Mother’s strong tapping. I should have remembered this.

Then I heard the OM in my ear and I trust this to be a sign that Divine Mother Maha Lakshmi will heal this beautiful young woman, my daughter-in-law, in the name of Jesus Christ. In essence, aren't Jesus Christ and Swami Vishwananda one? However, some do not comprehend this and we tend to pray to the deity of our choice, as Gurudev teaches us.
