One of my teachings for clients is to never be against anything, instead have an open mind to everything - There is a time and place for everything.
Perhaps the following three examples will bring clarity to this:
One of my clients initially contacted me with a large tumour in her colon which had completely blocked her ability to defecate - which is a life-threatening situation. If our bodies cannot eliminate our fecal matter (referred to as constipation), a process of auto-intoxication begins where our body absorbs its own waste. If this occurs for too long we can die. She asked my advice: should she come and focus on healing from within or should she use a treatment method offered by her oncologist?
My advice was this: If your cancer has reached a point of imminent crisis, it can create a situation that prevents you from being able to focus on your own healing work. Inner-healing takes time. In this example, she did not have much time because her body would not last long in a state of auto-intoxication. Of course, I told her that I cannot make this kind of decision for her. I simply explained that inner healing work can only be done if you have time, so if there is a threat to doing inner-healing work, the focus might best be put on eliminating the threat first.
In this case, my client chose to do surgery and had the tumour removed. The surgery went successfully and after she recovered she came to Wheel of Life and began her inner-healing. She left the program 30 days later energized with a clear understanding of what had caused her cancer, and began her plan of integration-work at home. In our most recent integration session, she was more confident than ever that she was now in control of her cancer.
Another of my clients contacted me with the desire to complete our Overcome Cancer Residency. She was in a situation where her spleen was so full of cancer that she could die any day. Her oncologist could offer chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, and the protocol a 50% chance of success. She had to decide if she should risk the treatment approach to her cancer or begin her transformational healing work in our Overcome Cancer Residency.
She decided to not do the treatment protocol because she felt the risk was too great, and she knew in her heart that the treatment would not address what caused her cancer to grow in the first place.
She came to the residency very determined, open to learning, and committed to healing herself. She accomplished a lot in a short time and the cancer cells in her spleen went away naturally in just 2 weeks. By the time she left the residency her symptoms of cancer were 90% gone - her belly which looked pregnant on day 1 was now flat. Today, 1.5 years later, she is cancer-free.
Another of our clients came (who had breast cancer) and did several coaching sessions with us while she prepared to make her decision as to whether she should do a chemotherapy protocol or complete our 30-Day Overcome Cancer Residency.
When the time came, she asked us whether she should do chemotherapy or do our complete residency program. We told her that we couldn't make that decision for her and our advice was to spend time alone and try to connect to what her inner voice was telling her.
She decided to do chemotherapy. As of this writing - about 9 months later - she has finished her chemotherapy and has been declared cancer-free.
Another of my clients contacted me from palliative care, where she was told she would die any day and nothing more could be done. She had underwent several chemotherapy treatments and surgeries.
She asked me if I could help her, and what she should do. I of course cannot make these kinds of decisions for anyone, and I told her that. However, I asked her some important questions: If you have been told you are going to die there in palliative care, and nothing more can be done for you - but you want to heal - then why are you staying there?The other thing I told her was that if she wanted to work with me to see if she could still reverse her cancer, then all we could do was try. She had to decide if it made sense for her to stay in palliative care or leave and begin self-healing work.
In this case, she left (and had a hard time leaving the hospital because all of her care-givers to that point, including her doctor, thought she was crazy to try something other than what they tried with her.
When she arrived she immediately slept for 13 hours straight without waking and had not sleep for more than 30 minutes in the hospital due to her pain. Her wounds from surgery began healing, her one swollen leg that was twice the size of her other leg went back to normal.
This was a complex scenario that is very personal to our client but she is unfortunately part of our 10% of clients who were not able to heal in time. Her family is incredibly thankful because when they visited her and saw how happy she was in this program, and the peaceful state she reached as she began to accomplish some of her inner-healing, it brought them to tears. In lieu of her passing, her family asked for donations to be made to our program to help others become aware of it sooner.
Statistically, 50% of cancer patients who undergo treatments die within 5 years after their original diagnoses, which also means 50% are alive within 5 years after diagnosis. If these people develop cancer again after the initial 5-year period they are still recorded as cancer-survivors.
In summary, sometimes a treatment can be exactly what a person needs at the time it's offered. At other times, it may not make any sense at all. We do not ever make decisions for our clients, because if we did, we'd be interfering with an important part of their personal healing work, which is this:
Often, one part of self-healing involves having the courage to face extremely challenging decisions - on one's own. No one can really make a decision for us - that is our free will. Five people may tell you to do one thing, and five other people may tell you to do another thing. It's your life - listen to YOUR inner truth.
This is how trust in oneself develops.
