Does cancer run in your family?
Do you or your loved-one have it already?

What is equally important to is to watch what eats you!
What is eating you and how can you deal with those issues?
This Other-Wise article is also relevant if you have cancer already.
"Holding grudges is like trying to kill someone, by drinking the poison yourself", Caroline Myss.
Emotions like resentment, bitterness, disgust, feeling betrayed are poison to our body and cancer cells thrive on these feelings. I believe that forgiveness is the most important step in reducing our risk of getting cancer.
In my consultations I have noticed that many people forget to forgive themselves for the part they played in creating the undesirable situation.
It is true that we have a fair share of "idiots in our lives. They irritate us and they trigger the emotions we want to avoid. In a previous blog I wrote about How to Deal With Idiots (In Power)
The media makes us believe that our body is only acceptable if it looks a certain way. Well the chances are very small that our bodies, look like that. When we loath our body or parts of it, we seriously increase our risk of cancer. When we release the belief that our body should look differently, we can start loving it. I have created a "Love my body routine". When I put lotion on my body, I tell each part how much I love it. If feel the gratitude for each part of my body, including the fat, cellulite and wrinkels.
Our society is so focused on cancer with many cancer awareness activities. We even dedicate months to it. We are told to go for relular memograms. Just the thought of getting my boobs squashed in that machine to take the memogram, makes my boobs hurt. What we focus on grows. So instead of focusing on cancer, let's focus on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. By all means it is good to check our body for lumps, but let's do it as part of our "Loving our body routine", while we are filled with love and appreciation for our body, instead of fear. Because fear also increases the risk.
I do want to make it clear, that if we don't feel well and we think we might have cancer, by all means go to the doctor. I am not suggesting to pretend cancer doesn't exist. I am suggesting that we focus more on overall health and have months dedicated to health and well-being!
There are a number of things we can do to create inner peace.
1. Accepting what it.
2. Have quiet time.
3. Your own method of creating inner peace
1. Accepting what is.
We cannot change what happened in our past, or what is happening right now. By accepting what is, we we actually make it possible to take charge of the present situation, so that we can create the future we do want.
I learnt from Donna McCullum, also known as the Fairy Godmother, to accept the present moment with the following statement. "Even though this moment is not ideal, it is ok for this moment and I am ok in this moment. " By saying that statement a few times, we stop resisting what is and we become calm. That resistance creates the poisonous emotions.
2. Quiet Time and Rest
Many of us are constantly rushing around and being busy. We don't know how to stop. The only time we stop and nurture ourselves is when we are ill. Why not nurture ourselves while we are healthy? By becoming quiet a few times a day and giving ourselves a chance to rest, we reduce our chances of getting cancer and other diseases.
Many people love to meditate and there are many health benefits from meditating. Maybe you can explore how you can find a meditation that works for you.
3. Your way of creating inner peace
You might have your own way of creating inner peace. It doesn't really matter how you get there, as long as you really feel at peace.
