A Message of Hope
in Support of Breast Cancer Month
My intention in writing this article is to offer hope for those who
have serious diseases and ideas for those who want to prevent
disease and maintain their health.
On July 9th 2007, after
having had a biopsy the previous week, I left the doctors office at
4pm in a state of shock. I was told that I had cancer of the left
breast. The doctor wasn't warm or empathetic and injected me with a
fair amount of fear. When I got home I just sat in my living room
for several hours staring blankly at a wall, saying the mantra 'I am
healed and whole' over and over. I couldn't think. I couldn't move.
You probably don't know that I am a professional
transformational energy healer. I work with the spiritual, mental,
and emotional connection with the body. I have helped hundreds of
people heal themselves of serious diseases, emotional issues and
unwanted life patterns. However, all this went out the door when I
received the news. I was numb and in disbelief. "How could this
happen to me, a healer?"
I now know the answer to my
question. It was part of my life's journey to experience this and
learn from it, so I could help others. I consider the entire
experience a gift. However, in those first days, that idea was not
even on my radar screen.
If you are ever faced with a life
threatening disease, make the conscious choice not to move into
fear. I have talked with others who have experienced serious
diseases and they all share the same wisdom in their hindsight, "Do
not make important decisions quickly, especially when you are in
fear." I agree implicitly with them. If you do, you may regret those
choices. I know someone who experienced being diagnosed with breast
cancer and chose to remedy it through a mastectomy. She made this
decision quickly while she was still in a state of shock and fear.
She did not take the time to consider other options or consult other
physicians. When the breast tissue was brought to the lab, extensive
testing showed that there was no cancer within it. She was minus a
breast, and the surgery to reconstruct her breast was not performed
well leaving her in terrible pain. Two more surgeries could not
correct it. She now lives with constant pain and is filled with
anger and distrust - the deep emotional scars of an unfortunate
Always take the time for some deep breaths, to
allow yourself to think, to feel and assess a situation from your
heart. Remember that nearly all important decisions can be postponed
for a short while, and it is always your right to seek a second
From the very first day, I made the decision never
to claim my diagnosis. I never said, "I have cancer." Since our
thoughts and words create everything, saying, "I have cancer," can
help create it. Why tell your body it has cancer? Your body takes
commands from your mind and thoughts. I always said, "I was
diagnosed with cancer." I kept my attitude positive. When I had one
of my many down moments, I asked friends and colleagues to help, to
listen, to pray, and to visualize my healing with me.
my journey, doubt and fear seemed to linger at my back door.
Although I worked at mastering these emotions, in retrospect what
worked best was getting out of my own way and just allowing life to
present itself. When I started allowing, all flowed seamlessly to a
successful conclusion. I was led to the right people who helped and
I healed myself without traditional medical
intervention. The breast and the lymph, which were recommended to be
removed, and receive rounds of radiology, chemotherapy and hormone
treatments, are intact, healthy, and whole. This has been verified
by tests from both the medical and holistic health communities.
My first focus was the spiritual, mental, and emotional cause of
my diagnosed disease. All healing is spiritual first, then mental
and emotional, and lastly physical. Thought and emotion create all.
Negative thoughts and emotions can become buried in the cells of our
bodies as dense, heavy energy. Over time, it can cause a breakdown
within the body, where it is stored. To ensure healing the cause, it
is important to do the work to identify what is buried in your cells
and transform it. This is critical whether you embrace a traditional
approach, a holistic approach, or a combination. Without this work,
your health issue could return.
To combat my diagnosis I
immediately started doing deep work at the subconscious and cellular
level to identify what was stored in my breast that needed to be
released and transformed. It was amazing. As I did this work, day by
day, week by week, I felt continually lighter, brighter, and happy -
even though I was diagnosed with cancer! Within a couple of weeks,
people who did not know of my condition would say to me, "You look
great." If they knew about my condition, they said, "I cannot
believe how happy and joyful you are!" Everyone could feel the shift
of my energy, as I did.
My second focus was diet and
nutrition. Once freed of the density of your own buried negative
thoughts/emotions, your body has the space to heal naturally. I
chose an alkaline, macrobiotic, organic diet to support my body's
ability to heal naturally. This diet is free of yeasty foods like
wheat and cheese, and free of sugar, spicy hot foods, caffeine, and
alcohol. I lightly cooked most of my food and I included several
nutritional gifts, like seaweed. I drank pure spring water and
healing herbal teas. I continued this diet throughout my healing
journey and beyond it.
Why this approach? Yeast, sugar, and
acid in your intestinal environment tend to foster disease -
actually helping it grow! Putting toxins and hormones into your body
from non-organic foods interferes with your body's ability to heal
and maintain optimum health.
50-60% of my diet consisted of
organic vegetables. The remainder included healthy grains such as
millet, brown rice and quinoa. Protein is primarily derived from
fresh white flaked fish, salmon, and legumes. I ate very little
fruit, since all fruit is full of natural sugar. Studies have shown
that cancer may thrive with sugar, so I didn't want to take the
chance and ate as little sugar as possible. Fruit like oranges and
strawberries are acidic which conflicts with an alkaline diet. I did
eat blueberries, apples, pears, dried apricots, and raisins in
moderation. These fruits have healing properties, which target
health areas that I needed to support.
My third priority was
to get plenty of rest and sleep. Your body best heals while you are
I used medical diagnostics (urine, bowel, saliva,
blood and gastro tests) to tell me what was going on inside of me. I
learned what areas my body was deficient in, so I could address them
with diet, supplements, other protocols, and additional energy work.
Interestingly, I learned that I had parasites that were causing
extreme diarrhea, discomfort and exhaustion. My research uncovered
several studies that link cancer to fungus or parasite problems. A
big prevention tip is to change your intestinal environment to be
more alkaline. It is much harder for fungus, disease, bacteria, or
cancer to thrive in an alkaline environment. Also, adding a
pro-biotic supplement to your daily routine will help raise the
level of good bacteria in your tummy.
What else is important?
● Find tools that help you stay centered, focused and
balanced throughout your journey. I used breathing techniques,
Meditation, Yoga, Pilates and Qigong on a regular basis.
Look at other alternative health care practices. I chose acupuncture
to support my body's ability to heal naturally.
slowing your use of unfermented soy products. There are documented
health risks associated with soy products, especially in relation to
● Include fermented soy products. I also
added other fermented products such as umeboshi plum and sauerkraut.
Fermented foods are good for your tummy's balanced health. If you
are trying to maintain your health or heal, your intestinal
environment can help or hinder your progress. 80% of your immune
system operates in your gut!
● Clear free flowing lymph is
critical to your body's health. I worked energetically to transform
what was unhealthy and stored in my lymph. I also added two lymph
drainage supplements, self massage, and jumping on a small
trampoline 5+ minutes a day. All of these facilitate lymph flowing
through your system easily and joyfully.
Metals in our
body detract from all aspects of health. Did you know that most
commercial deodorant has aluminum in it? When we shave our
underarms, it facilitates an immediate dump of aluminum into our
underarm lymph glands! Free flowing lymph is needed for our immune
system to work properly, so why clog it with aluminum? I also
engaged in detoxification for metals and other toxins.
Lessen your use of underwire bras. They cut off the circulation of
your body's blood, lymph and energy to your breast tissue.
Use guided imagery to change what is going on in your body. I used
it to shrink my lump in my meditations.
● Watch fun movies
that make you laugh. The vibration of laughter supports healing. It
also helps maintain your health through boosting your immune system.
On Sunday, August 12, 2007, only 5+ weeks into my journey after
a session of energy work I did with myself, I felt a total energy
shift in my tumor. The lump in my breast felt dormant. I could not
prove it however, until I learned about and had a thermogram scan on
Nov 2, 2007. The scan validated what I already knew - there was no
longer any cancer in my breast.
Although this was a journey
to heal my diagnosis of cancer, it became a spiritual journey for
me. With each healing session, I gained a deeper connection with my
inner self and became closer to my Creator, my angels and my guides.
Once cleansed of the density in my body put there by buried negative
emotions and thoughts, I was able to fill myself with lighter
vibrating energy. Today I am just so happy. Nothing gets to me or
bothers me. This is a huge gift, and I have the diagnosis of cancer
to thank for it.
