Some people call “when it all falls apart” a reversal of fortune. Well, I have had too many of these to count and “fortune” had little or nothing to do with my condition.
Those who are honest with themselves know that on some level they created every one of those “reversal of fortunes”. Often they are “sins of omission”, things we knew we should do but failed to do. Failure to act as your intuition pleads with you to do is the #1 cause of things falling apart in our lives. Our inner voice warns us, tells us what to do but we refuse to listen.
Do you not know that the what we call intuition is the voice of God within us? Yes, God does not live way up in the sky but is everywhere present, especially in us. Call it the Holy Spirit, Gnosis, The God within; it all adds up to the same power that created the Universe and all that exists; giving us constant help and advice.
Rule number 1 of surviving a “reversal of fortune” is to be still and listen to the voice within. You will find the strength you need to survive this crisis and the advice and directions to repair the damage.
A technique that I used when I was diagnosed in 2004 with advanced prostate cancer is the technique I call “pulling the thread”. Have you ever pulled on the thread of a sweater and saw it start to unwind into a ball of yarn?
To find the cause of your trouble you will unwind the thread of your consciousness. Everything begins in your mind and the cause of your “reversal of fortune” lies within you. “Pulling the Thread” will help you to discover the root cause and how to repair the damage.
First be aware of the location of your trouble. The location of your problem will tell you what issues you need to address as you begin the repair work. Remember it all begins and ends with YOU. Nothing outside created my cancer or your reversal of fortune.
Cancer is a sickness of the spirit, mind and heart. It is your own body turning against you. The cure lies in finding out why you have turned against yourself.
Where did the cancer appear in my case? In the reproductive and sexual area! That was my first clue as to what threads to begin to pull. The female equivalent is breast or cervical cancer. The illness is located in the area of your biggest life challenge,
Mine has been women. I loved them dearly but often I could not sustain the relationship. Happily my dear wife Susan and I just celebrated our 18th Anniversary and I am confident that her lovely blue eyes will be the last thing I see when my journey is done.
In short, a lot of women wanted to marry me (guess I looked like good husband material) and I said yes too often. After the glow wore off, my insecurity and angst began to wear on them and yet another failed relationship ensued; leaving the anger, guilt and bitterness that eventually poisoned my body and almost killed me.
This is when I learned to “pull the thread”.
As I began to “pull the thread” to unearth the real cause of the cancer I found a common thread in each my previous relationships. I did not feel that I was good enough to be with that woman. Oh, I was outwardly charming, confident and, of course good looking.
To my surprise Dore’ did not like Dore’. I was judgmental, sometimes prickly and hard to live with and just overflowed with a feeling of being “damaged goods”.
Feelings of inferiority are prime causes of illness; as are constant sorrow, bitterness or anger. These are mind and body poisons and are the real cause of cancer. Medicine is beginning to understand this as well, at long last.
“Pulling the Thread” is not fun. It is brutal self examination that lays bare many of the things that we have been keeping buried for a lifetime. The more you trace the cause, the more you look at the issues you have in the area of the cancer, the more you are removing the cause of that cancer.
Read Louise Hay’s book, Heal Your Body, and get a good understanding of how each area of our physical body relates to our Mind and Spirit. This understanding will be your road map to recovery.
Pulling the thread takes courage and an iron will to be healed. You may hang your head and cry as the truth of each thread you expose becomes so obvious. You may be even loathe what comes up.
That’s OK, its all part of the purging and healing that will cure your illness of Spirit that is out picturing as cancer or other illness and ensure that it never returns.
Until we are together again, be well, be happy and listen to the God within.
