“We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up or fight like hell.” ~Lance Armstrong
“Cancer is a word, not a sentence!” ~I don't know who wrote this, but it's my personal favorite!
That damn C Word. It truly doesn't have to be a sentence! Have you had a family member, close friend or anyone near and dear to your heart who's been affected by it? Have you had to watch someone endure the pain during treatments? Have you witnessed this person become a shell of the person they once were? If you have, you know how very difficult it is to hear the word, let alone even think about it. As a cancer survivor, and someone who's watched numerous loved ones lose their battle, I know personally how hard it is. But what we could all fight against it?
As a cancer survivor myself, I can attest that Reiki has saved my life in more ways than one. Sadly, it was through Reiki and my healer that I learned what love truly felt like within my being for the first time in my life. I also learned that mind, body and spirit are all connected. Truly, it wasn't until I got my emotional state of being on board in the healing department, that my body began to heal completely.
Let me explain by saying that all aches, pains, illness and disease begin in the mind. It was the continuous negative self talk that began in my mind, created blockages and density in my physical body, manifesting my cancer. I personally, had ingrained in my mind that I was not worthy of many things, such as being important enough to have an opinion, to be able speak my personal truth, or even being important enough to put myself first. I certainly didn't feel worthy of being loved, let alone, know how to be kind to and love myself. This self talk continued deeply for years and manifested that damn C word within me twice before I realized why.
I'm living proof that Cancer can be just a word! There are so many things we can do in an effort not to assist the body in manifesting disease in the first place. But one of THE most important things that I did for myself was to be my own medical advocate, finally. More on that here. The second most important thing I did was to break the negative pattern and change my internal recording. I did this with regular Reiki Sessions and meditation so that I could feel the love within that I was missing. For me was huge. I also carried a rose quartz crystal in my pocket every day for quite a while as a reminder that I was worthy of love. And I vowed to myself that I would do kind and loving things for myself, which was and sometimes still is very difficult for someone who always puts others first. For me, this is a constant daily effort, but today, I am healthy and whole. You can be too and I'd love to help!
