It seems to be more common today than ever before that more family members and friends seem either to be diagnosed with Cancer, or know someone who has been unexpectedly shocked with diagnoses, that Cancer has taken over their bodies.
You can be young, old, a mother, father, sister, brother, daughter, son from any walk of life. It can sometimes be genetic.
So what is going on? Why has there been so much research and charity events raising massive amounts of money to help cure Cancer and there are more Cancer patients than ever before?
You get where I am going? I’m not telling you anything you don’t really know. However, what I am telling you is the truth and often times we don’t want to look at the truth. We fear truth and believe way too much in conventional medicine.
Today’s lifestyles have a lot of pressure and stress to be whom and what we think we must be. Are you really living the life you want?
It is easy to develop bad habits and hold old childhood wounds of shame, resentment, hatred or not feeling good enough, too busy pleasing everyone else and putting yourself on the backbench.
And, through it all, we never think, “If I continue holding onto these thoughts, feelings and behaviours, I’ll get Cancer”. I am talking about some of your deep subconscious beliefs that you may not even recognise, or be in denial of.
Can you create your potential illness? Of course you can! Sometimes, shit just happens. We also underestimate the power of the mind and how we can create illness and how we can also heal or cure illness.
Life gets busy, we are living our lives, having good times, bad times, growing, learning having children, getting married, working a 9-to-5 job or developing a career of some sort.
No one asks for Cancer and no one deserves it Period! If you are amongst those who do get Cancer and people tell you that you have created it by how you think or that it is your fault which stemmed from your bad behaviours, that is totally unfair.
However, now that you have had the diagnosis that you have Cancer, you want to have some information to help you deal with it, right? You want to check your mindset.
You would also want to check your daily food intake and, lastly, you would want to be touched with ‘hands on healing’. I will go over these few healing methods with you now.
What do I mean about a mindset? The dictionary defines mindset as: a fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations.
It refers to habits of mind formed by previous experience, an intention or inclination, your outlook. So, how do you approach “bad news” when you get it:
- Do you tense your body, sore jaw, wring hands;
- Do you want to hide away and not talk about it;
- Do you want people around not to talk to; and/or
- Do you pretend nothing is happening and go into denial?
What is your way of handling a life-changing situation?
Accept it fully!
It is ok to admit you are in fear, sit in the emotion that you are feeling, it is ok to be there for a little while. Make sure it does not consume you for too long, know when to move out of that state. Each day take a step forward and start doing what needs to be done.
Your loved ones are going to be your biggest supporters, they will also need to know how to figure out the best way they can be there for you. They are part of your team. Talk to them about how you feel and how you are fully taking this on.
Reassure each other at times to remind you of your braveness and how you are not allowing the fear to consume you. You are all in this together, loving and supporting.
Always have a support team of friends that make you laugh and lift you up, sometimes you may just want a shoulder to cry on or a big hug. I loved laying in bed with my girlfriend all day just chatting and eating jelly babies.
Whatever your emotions you need to release them whether you are sad, angry, frustrated or happy.
Visualise yourself getting better and better every day!
Many years ago I read a book of a young boy who used loved star wars, he said when he had Cancer he used to play star wars games inside his body. He said the spaceships were fighting inside his body, blowing away all the bad Cancer cells.
Visualising is a great technique to use, as your subconscious mind does not recognise the truth, so it will believe whatever you decide to put into it.
Your health and wellbeing is of the upmost importance. Mind, body, spirituality and sexuality are all energies you want to balance and integrate with any prevention or healing of illness. Good healthy fresh foods will help balance your pH levels.
There are so many super foods that are great for helping fight Cancer. I suggest you find an expert in this field to help assist with good healthy eating.
Healing Hands The Power Of “Touch”
We underestimated the healing powers of touch. Remember as a child or when your own children fall over and scratch say their knee, what is the first thing you do? You put your hand on the wound, it feels better with your hand on it than off it.
You are transmitting healing energy from your hand into the wound. If you have a sore tummy and you place your hands on your tummy, it does the same thing. When you cuddle someone it seems to take away all the stress and tension you just felt.
Touch more often, hug more, hold hands. Get yourself some Reiki session with a qualified practitioner.
Reiki for pain control has been in many studies, even though Reiki has not been scientific proven in healing Cancer, it has helped control pain with people with advanced Cancer, in a Canadian study in 2003.
It had a significant pain reduction after treatment with this group. More studies are needed and required for natural therapies over all. Good healthy living, overall, are only going to help Cancer patients live a quality and happy life.
Balance is the key, a great mindset, healthy eating, plenty of touch and lots of laughter with great friends and family around you.
In the last copy of Holistic Living Magazine, I wrote about the healing power of Orgasm. I suggest you grab yourself a copy of the edition and read it. Breath work and Orgasm are great for any illness and your overall health and wellbeing.
Prevention is the best. Look at your body as a temple and treat it with all the best nutrition you can. Be kind to yourself and think good thoughts, learn to love you, remember this is your life, and live it how you want to, not how others would like you to live.
Enjoy your body, love the skin you are in and make sure you take good care of it. Do some self-development work and be a better person tomorrow, than who you were yesterday. We are all here together and we are all alive and living until our last breath.
Sending all my love and healing to everyone out there with Cancer today.
In loving memory of my brother David that passed away to brain Cancer 5 years ago.
