This article was written at the request of a reader. Having finished chemotherapy for breast cancer with the dreaded five-year waiting period to determine if the cancer was completely eradicated, she asked me how to have 'peace with cancer.' This article explains the truth of the matter.

Creating peace with cancer is counter-intuitive, because the focus is on cancer that is believed to reside in your temple [body]. We experience what we believe. Therefore, if you believe cancer resides in your body with which you want to make peace, you will experience what you believe. "We experience what we believe. If we don't believe that we experience what we believe, then we don't, which still means the first statement is true." - Harry Palmer

Furthermore, peace with cancer is an oxymoron, in that one can not make peace with something that is a foreign entity within the system [mind, body, spirit]. Cancer or any dis-ease of the body is sorely misunderstood in Western Medicine ideology.

Cancer is a message that the system, [mind,body, spirit] is in distress, therefore, dis-ease is in full force. The mental cause of cancer is deep hurt. and longstanding resentment.; a deep secret or grief eating away at the self. Deep hatreds. Often with a belief, 'What's the use?'

The key to eliminating the dis-ease called 'cancer' or any other diagnosed or undiagnosed illness is emotional and spiritual healing, nutrition and supplements.

What is emotional and spiritual healing?

The body is fully equipped to heal itself provided it has the proper support to do its job. The support the body needs is best described as Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). TCM based on a concept of balanced qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital energy. Qi believed to flow throughout the body to regulate a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy). Disease is proposed to result from the flow of qi being disrupted and yin and yang becoming imbalanced. Among the components of TCM are herbal and nutritional therapy, restorative physical exercises, meditation, acupuncture, and remedial massage.

Holistic, Metaphysical, Energy or Mind, Body, Spirit healing has existed since humans inhabited this planet; amid religious beliefs and practices, along with the mystery, superstition, fear, and misunderstanding. Holistic Healing is now becoming recognized regardless of what anyone chooses to believe or think. Ask almost anyone about their spiritual well-being and they will probably tell you, "I go to church regularly." Therein, confusion arises out of the association of healing with religion. The majority of people, including medical doctors and religious leaders, do not understand the difference.


"HEAL" 1. To restore health or soundness, 2. To set right, to repair, 3. To restore a person to spiritual wholeness, 4. To create wholeness and sound, to return to health.

"SPIRIT" 1. The vital principle or animating force within living beings, Incorporeal consciousness. There are about twelve more elaborations mostly to do with various religious implications.

"RELIGION" 1. Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe, 2. A set of beliefs, values and practices based on the teachings of a religious doctrine.

Carl Jung and many others have carefully worded their writing: Every Thing in the universe is Energy and Consciousness. What anyone thinks or feels about that Fact cannot change it. The purpose of All religions is the recognition that humans have a part of themselves that is not physical and there is a need to explore and experience this aspect of themselves. Part of the intent is to discover one's purpose and to live in the best way possible. Another part of that goal also includes the attainment of Truth and Spiritual Wellness. However, the result of religious teachings with regard to our Spiritual health has been an abysmal failure. If the most important aspect of our being is our Spiritual self, and it has been neglected, it is a miracle we have existed this long.

Many churches are in a state of extreme confusion in an attempt to avoid accepting the "Truth." The greatest struggle is how to incorporate all the now known knowledge and assimilate it into the religious dogma and theology. The problem is the impossibility of reconciling the obvious flaws in most theology and doctrine. The obvious shortcomings and how political and nationalistic and other special interests and agendas have resulted in a history filled with disappointment, tragedy, confusion and religious wars.
In many cultures it has always been thought and/or known that we are spiritual beings, the biggest exception is in western industrialized cultures that we believe we are people who happen to have a soul.

Eastern philosophy believes we are a soul first, housed in this thing called a 'body.' The most beautiful and simple interpretation of how everything 'IS' can be found in the Native American tradition. "Everything in the universe is Spirit, each thing in it is of the same Spirit and it is all Connected." This is exactly what we are beginning to understand in science and quantum physics, that everything in the universe is made of the same thing and has a consciousness about it. The two things that frustrate scientists the most is the fact that all these things operate across time, space and dimensions they do not yet understand, and the ability of things to operate on inter-dimensional and multi-dimensional levels. A high degree of new understanding about the science and physics of what spiritual really means is now mostly coming from independent researchers. High-tech and aerospace research physicists and scientists, all seem to have a more concise and accurate understanding of Spirit and the Spiritual than those from a theological background.

The Reality and The Truth of Spirit-In plain language, there is only One God or Universal Energy that Is Everything. There is only One Consciousness. We are only one individuated expression of The One. All the dogma, theology and religious beliefs anyone chooses to pile on this truth is commonly referred to as Bunk. It is the lack of true knowledge and the application of these distortions, which have been the source of all emotional, physical and spiritual problems. Spirit is alive, it is something that is lived and experienced, the surest way to destroy or suppress it is to organize it and institutionalize it.

Spiritual Experiences teach us: Everything we think or feel affects oneself and others. We need to realize every feeling-anger, fear, hate, sadness, judgment-are mind generated emotions and need to be modified or eliminated. Left to fester-anger, fear, hate, sadness, judgment, creates physical reactions. For every physical reaction, a.k.a. symptoms-i.e. colds, cancer, MS, and everything from A to Z, there is a direct link to mind generated emotions. When these mind generated emotions are eliminated and the wounds created from long term and dysfunctional expressions are healed, the physical manifestation labeled as illness by Western Medicine is eliminated.

The bottom line is Health and Well-Being is affected by two factions-Doctors and Ministers. Doctors are trained as mechanics who work on the physical mechanism. They are in the Business of "Treatment." They are Not Trained in the "Art of Healing". Most doctors do not even understand the most rudimentary concepts of Healing. Most do not realize how they can produce damage and even induce death sentences on their patients.

There is little difference in the effects produced by an intentional damaging curse or a prayer prayed improperly, bad advice or simply some random negative thought. Ministers are trained in traditional theosophical dogmatic perceptions specific to the cultural religious views they ascribe to. Most people have little concept about True Spirituality or how the universe really operates. As a consequence they convey misinformation, half-truths, superstitions and fears along with a multitude of associated damaging information into a person's consciousness. The result of which is Confusion and Paradox-which leads to distress, disease and un-wellness.

Our experiences, both the good in our lives and the dis-eases are the result of conditioning and beliefs. It is the experiences, conditioning and beliefs that are counter to our true nature that causes the damage. No matter how dire a client's predicament seems to be, I Know if they are 'Willing' to do the emotional and spiritual work of releasing old habits, beliefs and forgiving, and changing their eating habits everything can be healed. The word 'incurable' used by Western Medicine really only means that the person can not be 'cured' by 'outer' methods. They need to Go Within to effect their healing. The condition was created as a way to cope-it came from within and can be healed from within. Reference: Heal Your Body, Louise L. Hay
