Hi everyone !
I hope you are all well ! Here in Switzerland it is sunny (at last !). I wanted to share something I've read with you. It seems in Quebec there is a school of psychologists and doctors who are studying the MEANING of illnesses. The concept behind this is that our brain reacts to a psychological threat, real or imagined, the same way it would react to a physical threat. Our brain also has an intelligence of its own : it controls our whole body, and will put it deliberately at risk if it evaluates that this risk is less of an immediate threat that the psychological risk it is under at the time.
"The psychological situation that precedes cancer is often the following :
If I analyse what went on for me, for the past several years, I was under a huge stress : job, family, finances... Nothing much I could do about it. After a while I got sick : didn't stop working though. Then I got a different and more serious sickness : I went back to work almost immediately, didn't listen to my body. Guess what, this is about the time my tumour started : my brain had tried to send me messages : "stop, there is too much pressure, I can't handle it anymore." Seeing I didn't listen to the messages, it finally FORCED me to stop. Cancer. No fooling around anymore, you listen or else... And I was relieved to learn I had cancer. I am serious. Because all these years, my stress had remained high.
This is why I want to change my lifestyle in such a big way that my brain won't feel threatened anymore. Two other books are my companions is that quest : "Simple abundance", by Sarah Ban Breathnach, and "Clear your clutter with Feng Shui", by Karen Kingston.
I would love to have your thoughts on this.
With a big hug,
