Over the years I have worked with many patients who have faced the diagnosis of cancer. It is challenging to find anything funny about cancer, however the lighter the attitude, generally the better the outcome …
I was speaking at The Spring Festival of Awareness, in Naramata B.C., Canada, an annual event that celebrates alternative thinking and healing modalities. A woman in the audience came to the front and asked if I would work on her elderly father who had lung cancer, using her as a surrogate. He was in hospital in palliative care and was not expected to recover.
The following year, she was attending the festival once again as was I, and I asked her what had happened with her father. She replied that he had made an unexpected turn for the better and after several months, they removed him from palliative care, even though all his tests showed that he still had cancer. The difference was it no longer bothered him. I had energetically shifted him to let go of any concerns about cancer and dying from his mind and send them out to black wholes, then spun in reasons to live well through white holes.
She told me that typical conversations with him went something like this …“Dad, you have to cooperate with the doctors, they need to do tests.”, “Why do they need to do tests?”, “Because you have cancer.”, “I do? Are you sure? I feel so good!”, or … “Dad, would you like to go for an ice-cream?”, “I don’t like ice-cream! Well, maybe I do, OK!”, or “Dad, would you like to go to an art exhibition?” “Nah, I don’t like art! Wait a minute, maybe I do!”
She told me that it wasn’t just the cancer he forgot, it was also many other things he didn’t like. When she asked him if it bothered him that he could not remember some things, he said he felt that if it was important to remember he would, because he always remembered the people he loves. As it turned out, he did really enjoy art and was very animated in his conversations when discussing it. The following year, we met once again and her father was now at home and still doing better than expected.
