Inner Peace Opens you to Guidance

Health & Healing

Health is the free flow of energy through the body and can be achieved through an ever evolving mind, body, spirit balance or equilibrium.

Your body has incredible untapped potential to heal, that potential lies in a place of peace, deep inside you. It is always there, always accessible. Silence unlocks the body's innate capacity to heal and helps you move towards greater inner peace, guidance and well-being.

Power to Change Interview

I recently wrote a chapter in a book called Power to Change.  It includes my chapter - 5 P's to Making Life Enhancing Changes as well as chapters from 18 other experts in various modalities of creating change. 

In addition to outlining how to facilitate change, I answer the question - 'why do people often wait until they have a life-threatening diagnosis, like cancer, to make life-enhancing changes?'. The 5 P's are: Pain, Power, Permission, Passion and Purpose.  Please use this link to listen to my interview: http://www.thepowertochangetelesummit.com/audioseries.htm

Questions for Anita Moorjani

Shortly, I will be interviewing Anita Moorjani - who healed from stage 4 lymphoma after her near death experience (NDE).  If you have not read my articles or watched my video interview about this amazing women I invite you to do so (see links below).  She launched her book 'Dying to Be Me' in March and it is already a best-seller, full of thought provoking content! Before I interview her again I would like your ideas in terms of potential questions to ask her.  Here are some that I came up with:

  1. What if we were to turn back time and you were just given your first cancer diagnosis.  Knowing what you know today, what would you do differently?
  2. Now let's move ahead in time, in five years from now if you were to be diagnosed with cancer what would you do?
  3. Fear was a big part of your life before your NDE.  In fact, most of the awareness around cancer is fear-based, including early screening and detecting.  If you were in charge of the International Cancer Institute for researching and finding a cure for cancer what approach to cancer would you recommend?
  4. Some people think a bit of fear is good.  For example, they were scared that their cancer would progress so they accepted to get chemo.  After the treatments were over and there were declared cancer-free they feel that their fear served a purpose, it helped them to withstand the treatments that got them better.

Thanks and until next time, be and love your true and wonderful self!
Namaste,
Jackie

Hi Anita - I don't think it is always necessarily FEAR of chemo and other conventional cancer treatments that makes us turn to alternatives. I think it is a well-founded skepticism. Searching alt cancer sites, it is often quoted that many, if not most doctors don't think chemo works most of the time for most cancers, would not recommend it to their family, and wouldn't use it themselves. And the quality of life is definitely eroded. If one has learned this, I think it is folly to blindly follow western conventional treatments such as chemo, not simply fear. However, I am not suggesting that in your case it was not simply fear, and I admire greatly the way you opted to go through the chemo at the end just to show the doctors and so you would get credibility. And you trusted God would heal no matter what.
Thank you.

can you please comment on the role of victim-consciousness in cancer. I know I felt like a victim most of my life before cancer, then it got worse, along with my fear, with my first and second and third diagnoses. I believe these energies can feed cancer and work against one's healing efforts. I've been dealing with breast cancer for 15 years now. My life has many parallels to yours; however, my parents were extremely abusive and reinforced my feelings of unworthiness and victimhood from a very young age. I believe that I have forgiven them, but someitmes wonder if I really have. It's not always easy to see the divine in others or to feel compassion for them, but I think this is what has helped me thus far. I feel like I want to purify my spirit and fill it with Divine love every minute of every day. Much love to you.

Hi Anita, my experience has come from the pediatric cancer experience with my 9yr old daughter. I question...what about the children?? I have known infants a young as 2 months that have cancer. How do we help them?? How do we know what is within that may be causing the cancer. My daughter passed from Leukemia in 2003. We rushed her to the hospital in June of 2002. Her condition was acute. She would die the next day if we didn't start chemo. I "thought" I was one of those who would not put my child through chemo. But her blood was 98% full of cancer. I think there was definitely fear involved from a parents perspective. We were in shock and willing to do what was needed to kill the cancer the chemo was our hope in the moment. Kristin had a good life...she was an amazing old soul in a little body. A joy a light in this world. How do we know how to help the little ones to heal themselves. If you walk the child cancer ward...they are the most amazing little/big spirits. Wise beyond their years. such bravery and courage. Some don't have fear because they don't even know to fear. They can impart the most profound wisdom that I think comes right from the mouth of the Divine and through them to this earthly realm. They suffer with such grace . They are such inspirations. We worked with visualization, meditation, prayer,some holistic meds with the western medicine also....as much as we could work with a child. They are usually more open to believing what they are told. Again...the children....why do they get cancer???....how do we help??? what if it's an infant??? and could it be that if it is their time to go..they are just going to pass??? Thank you for your time, <3

Dearest Anita,

I am confused why, when your tumour shrinkage was 70% within a few days after your NDE, you submitted to 6 cycles of chemotherapy between your NDE Feb 3rd and July 24th? Almost six months of it! Might your full recovery not have been faster without it? Your book does not mention any resistance to that and I wonder how you were pressured into that? Did it not make matters worse?

Your story is of course immensely encouraging...but this point sticks with me as confusion.

Much love and a long happy life!

Is it too late to add a question for Anita? - It is not exactly health-related but in tune with Anita's message, I think.

I've read a lot about her and her inspiring story and she often refers to "being true to yourself" and "do what brings you joy". According to Anita, this is the way to find our true purpose in life.

I love that advice but I wonder: What about the things that do *not* bring me joy? That do not feel good to or right for me? For example, if I feel inspired to create art and want to make a living out of it but I hate selling and marketing. How in this situation could I still be true to myself and follow my joy?

I'm looking forward to the interview - hope I haven't already missed it!
