This journey with cancer offered the potential of deep transformation, even initiation. To open to these gifts it would be essential to walk this journey with clarity, intention, and grounding – yet that would all be thwarted if I wasn’t able to first deal with the fear of it. In all the reading and research we did there was the underlying counsel to step around the energy of fear which releases toxins in the body and plays havoc with mind and emotion. As my oncologist and many others noted, the right mind set and emotional peace would be 50% of my healing. It’s not that fear would not be present, for there was and always will be the specter of anxiety. So my first step in finding a right relationship with cancer was coming to terms with my relationship with fear.
When I saw this facebook post I knew it would become one of my mantras for this journey. So simple…and so powerful. Good for a cancer diagnosis…and life in general.
