Cancer Meditation (#89)
Cancer is a wonderful equal opportunity provider. There
may be no more powerful facts of life teacher. The choices of how to
respond to it physically are usually between surgery, radiation, and
chemotherapy. The beneficial effect these have can be hampered by the
stress of worry, fear, obsessive thoughts, and energy squandered in
negativity. Medical science has produced a large body of work that
proves that it is most advantageous to cease doing those things that
continue to cause stress and begin doing those things that promote the
optimum functioning of the immune and healing systems. Changing to a
healthy diet, exercising, and other "alternate healing" methods are

This ancient practice has been shown to be a tremendous
tool for healing. There is no better way to undo the negative reactions

relative to the maximum benefit they will bring you.
In your minds eye, see the surgical procedure removing 100% of
the cancerous tissue. See healthy cells growing and repairing the area.
See yourself whole and healthy.
Visualize radiation passing through your body, frying any
cancerous or precancerous cells. See new healthy cells evolve and
multiply. See yourself whole and healthy.
See chemotherapy molecules traveling through your bloodstream
attacking and killing all the aberrant cells. See healthy cells swarming
to the affected area and bring healing. See yourself whole and healthy.
As well as visualizing the physical healing processes, feel
your self-love and deep inner desire for good health fill and heal you
emotionally and mentally. This effort will stimulate and allow your
immune system to do its job unimpeded by the damage that unchecked
Most of all, know your Self to be the unchangeable, eternal
universal divine consciousness that is transcendent of your body, mind,
or emotions, and live happily ever after.
