Cancer ‘a friendly wake-up call’ for some

September is officially Cancer Survivor Month. People are still of the mindset that cancer is something chaotic that attacks randomly and has to be fought with poisons.

To the editor:

I woke today with these words and the insight behind them.

September is officially Cancer Survivor Month.  People are still of the mindset that cancer is something chaotic that attacks randomly and has to be fought with poisons.

I am simply stating facts here. My life has been touched by cancer too, and I know that when it showed up in my mother’s life it wasn’t random.  I also know that together we used visualization to minimize her brain tumour so that it hardly showed on the follow-up scan.

My mother was prone to worrying—when she was widowed at 40 and given anti-depressants to get over this she became dependent on the medication. Cancer in the brain was a kindly wake-up call to her—she hadn’t even realized that not speaking to her eldest child (me) for two years was odd. She was depressed, and that label made it OK! By having to deal with cancer she had to become more social, at the very least to have follow-up checks.

There are connections between where we develop cancer and our lifestyle.  Breast cancer tends to be a friendly wake-up call to women who love too much, women who put other people’s needs first and really believe they are being good people by giving more than they receive.

If you have been touched by cancer, I urge you to befriend the part of your body which is traumatized by your neglect of its emotional intelligence.

Please give it more of your love and attention and take the time to access your inner guidance as to what it needs.

Breathing love—in the form of light, joy, happiness, tenderness—into that particular place deeply, frequently, and cutting out all sugar for a while can heal you.

Cancer feeds on sugar, acid and lack of oxygen. It does not like high does of Vitamin C or an alkaline diet. Dr. Kelly published this in the 1930s.

The cure for cancer is a world-wide awareness that we have to treat our ‘vehicle’ well, refuse to worry, over-care for others and eat crap.

This is true, it may be too simple, but some of my best friends are simple people who come from the heart and don’t charge me anything for their advice or compassion.
