My Journey through Cancer and Beyond
In 2005 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a lumpectomy, radiation therapy and a total hysterectomy as part of my treatment. I also did my own research into cancer nutrition and went on a course of vitamins and nutritional supplements, as well as changed my diet and began meditation. At that time my husband and I owned and operated a gym,and so I continued to teach Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi Classes. I had a very speedy recovery, going back to classes 3 weeks after my operation, and even taught Tai Chi and did hypnosis for some of the patients who were attending Radiation at the hospital where I had my treatment. in 2006 I was invited to be the Guest Speaker for the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life in Dubbo to an audience of over 1,000 people.
In 2008 a bone scan revealed a "Hot Spot" on one of my ribs below the wound site. 12 months later it was diagnosed as bone cancer by the Oncology Department. They recommended that I have a bone biopsy plus some chemotherapy. I thanked them for their diagnosis, and said that although that was their opinion, I didn't have to agree with them, and in fact that I felt that I was on top of it, as the symptoms had lessened. I also said that I didn't think that having radioactive injections into my bloodstream every 3 or 6 months for the bone scan was a good idea, as that was a carcinogenic substance. Firstly the Oncologist asked if i was prepared to live with the consequences if I came back in 6 month and it was all through my skeleton. They then agreed to let me monitor it myself but should I have any further pains to go and get a bones scan immediately. 6 months later the discomfort was hardly noticeable, and 12 months later on April 7th, 2010 I had another bone scan. The radiologist said he couldn't fine the "hot spot". It was gone! I went to see Oncology on April 14th 2010 and he was amazed. He asked me how I did it. I told him it was with Reiki, Self-Hypnosis & daily Meditation, as well as vitamins and "Floressence", (also known as Cassie Tea). He agreed that it certainly was gone, and pronounced me as "cured"!
The Universe has a funny sense of humour! I had moved my Hypnosis and Reiki business to my current location in the main street of Dubbo and was helping so many people to change their lives that I was in high demand, and became so busy things started to get a little out of control. As well as the weekend Reiki workshops, I was working many days from 9am to 8pm without a break, and was booked out for weeks in advance. I was also helping to raise grandchildren and helping my husband in his business, so it was no real surprise that the Universe decided I needed some time out, even if I didn't want to take it, because I didn't want to let people down.
So, you guessed it, my breast cancer was back! I ended up having a double mastectomy and reconstruction on October 17th 2014, at Hunters Hill Private Hospital. I was up the next day and the doctors and nurses said they have never had another patient recover from such a huge 10 hour operation as well. I went home and got ack into my life, but the Universe wanted to make sure I really got the lesson this time, so the breast that have previously had radiation ended up with some skin necrosis and infection, which resulted in a skin graft on November 25th at St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney. Again I have recovered amazingly fast, but know that there are personal changes I need to make if I want to continue to help others through my work, and my life. The breasts are to do with nurturing the self, rather than just everybody else. So this year it's more about BALANCE and putting myself first, especially in my personal life. If I can o this, I will thrive and learn one of my main life lessons! This is always the callenge of the spiritual warrior. The battle with the self!
I know that the mind has a huge part to play in causing disease, and so I believe that if my mind can create it, then my mind can get rid of it! Miracles happen every day. Self-help expert Dr Deepak Chopra says that the miracles of yesterday have been proven by the science of today, and the miracles of today will be proven by the science of tomorrow- quantum physics!
Whatever the future holds, you can be sure I will continue to keep working to overcome obstacles, and learn the lessons of this lifetime. And as I learn, I will use the knowledge I gain to help others, so I'll be kicking up my heals for years to come!
Basically, in life we get what we believe! If you think life is difficult, and that you have to work hard for everything you get in life, then that will be your experience of the world, and so things will continue to go along those set pathways to prove you are right, unless something happens to change your mind! If you think that life is wonderful, then again, that will be your experience of the world, and as before, you will continue to draw experiences into your consciousness to support your belief, unless something happens to change your mind!
Our core beliefs are formed during our early years, and we then filter our anything that doesn’t agree with those beliefs, because this is what we have learnt to be our reality. This is why the same thing can happen to two different people and one will say “this is the worst thing that has ever happened to me”, while another person may say “this is the best thing that has ever happened to me!” So we each experience our own lives differently.
Those experiences that go to make up our world start off in the conscious mind as just experiences, then are stored in the subconscious and eventually become our beliefs. This doesn’t mean that they are true, but just that they are true for US.
Often it will take a crisis to make us challenge our beliefs, and once we examine those beliefs in the light of day, we can begin to see that there may be another reality. One which serves us better and one which can help us to have a greater experience of life.
The work we do together is about finding that other reality, and making it work for us. It’s about finding out who you really are, and learning to not only like that person, but to love them. When you truly love and accept yourself just the way you are, everything in your world changes! Miracles happen! You can’t change other people, you can only change yourself, and when you change, people respond differently to you. This process can bring more joy, happiness and peace to you, and empower you to live your best life!
This life is a continuing journey and we never stop learning, so I hope you are able to find something that rings true on these pages, that may in some small way strike a chord with you, and facilitate that change. Feel free to share this information with others as you choose.
