My Healing Journey Through Breast Cancer
Two days after my 36th Birthday, I received a call that no one wants to hear... a call from your oncologist that says, "You have breast cancer."
In that moment, my world shattered. Emotions surged like an uncontrollable river, and my life screeched to a halt. A veil of darkness and denial briefly numbed the pain, but soon, the overwhelming emotions returned.
"Now what? What the F*** do I do now?"
The truth was, I had no idea what to do. The only thing I knew was that I wanted to live. No, I needed to live!!! I needed to live for my two young children, aged 5 and 8. Having lost my own mother to ovarian cancer at 22, I couldn't fathom subjecting my kids to the same unbearable loss.
At 18, I confronted the news of my mother's cancer diagnosis, standing unwaveringly by her side throughout a tumultuous journey marked by surgeries, chemotherapy, drug therapies, and the poignant experiences of suffering, pain, and loss. Witnessing her battle against cancer exposed me firsthand to the toxic side effects of conventional treatments. In the final two weeks before her body succumbed to these treatments, she shared a profound insight:
"Mary, this is not the way to cure cancer; there must be another way. A way that the body can heal itself."
Her life gracefully slipped away, leaving behind words that proved to be a lasting gift – a gift of Divine Wisdom that I wouldn't fully comprehend until I faced my own cancer diagnosis. Her words became a catalyst for my relentless research journey, fueled by the conviction that my life hinged on finding an alternative path.
Delving into both conventional and unconventional treatment options, I grappled with conflicting thoughts between my mind and heart. Conventional advice urged surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and drugs for survival, while my heart echoed my mother's words – "another way to heal."
Under intense pressure to decide, I chose the soft, subtle voice in my heart. This choice led me to "another way to heal," and miraculous transformations unfolded in perfect divine order.
Healing, I discovered, is an ongoing process, an inside job initiated by listening to the soft, subtle voice in the heart – the voice of Eternal Divine Wisdom.
Every cancer "thriver" I ever known began their journey by connecting to their divine guidance, their intuition, a trustworthy compass that never misguides. Listening to my intuition, I embraced a holistic approach addressing body, mind, emotion, and spirit. Following this guidance, I not only healed my body but also underwent mental, emotional, and spiritual healing – a journey of "Whole Healing."
To help my body restore itself, I implemented whole organic foods, pharmaceutical grade supplements, detox baths, amalgam filling removal, rebounding and coffee enemas. Everything I ate or put into or on my body supported and nourished my body to heal. I eliminated or avoided anything that created a toxin burden that my body needed to clear. This created a storehouse of nourishment and abundant energy that my body needed to restore itself.
For my mind, I had to become very clear and aware of my thoughts. I needed to calm the "monkey mind" and endless chatter running amuck within my consciousness. I used several mindfulness practices to help calm my mind. Where your mind goes, your body will follow. While your mind can heal your body, your body cannot heal your mind. Your mind is a powerful tool in your healing process.
I learned to process my emotions by holding and surrounding them with love and grace. Suppressing emotions keeps them stuck in your body and they begin to fester like an infected wound. Unattended emotions cause energetic blocks in your body that, if left unattended, will manifest into physical disease. The only way to clear them is to meet them, hold them, understand them, and love them until they clear. Emotions are like children, they need your tender loving care and compassion.
I also surrendered into a deeper spiritual connection within myself. Cancer and dis-ease show up as a message from your soul. Emotions are the suppressed parts and pieces of your soul that you have lost touch with or abandoned. Your soul is seeking reunion and complete integration within yourself. Your soul will send emotional messages to help you learn, evolve, and grow through life experience. Shadow work is a wonderful way to get in touch with lost aspects of your soul.
Reconnection to Source (God) is your ultimate healing tool. By connecting to Source, you are connecting to the energy that creates the Universe. You begin to heal the body with the same energy that created the body. Thus, as you learn to tap into this energy, the body naturally heals itself.
Now, in the present moment, I joyously mark over 15 years of vibrant, healthy living since my initial cancer diagnosis. Defying the predictions of conventional doctors who asserted my demise within five years without chemotherapy, drugs, and radiation, I chose a different path, proving them wrong. Today, I am not merely alive; I am thriving, loving, and embracing life more than ever. I discovered another way to heal, and you can too.
