The Wellness Universe Quote of the Day by Amy Camie
Enjoy The Wellness Universe Quote of the Day by Amy and find more inspiration on her page. Here is her expanded thought…
For over 15 years I have lovingly shared healing harp music and empowering programs in the cancer community through presentations, workshops, gifting of CDs, bedside visits, live music in chemotherapy infusion units, and as a guest speaker for many support groups.
In December 2010, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The opportunity for me to walk my talk was beyond profound as my message for years had brought awareness to the vibrational and energetic impact of the language often used in the cancer world, which focuses more on the fear and fight versus the loving and learning. I knew from day one that my journey with cancer was about learning to love myself more fully, and I made a commitment to be open and honest about my feelings, fears, insights and lessons in all my journal entries.
In December 2012, I was diagnosed a second time as my journey to love continued.
In 2013, “Loving Life…all of it –A Walk with Cancer, Compassion and Consciousness” was published. It is a summary of journal entries, insights and lessons that continue to impact my life. Today, I am healthy, happy and Loving Life…all of it!
Below is the Life Lesson that inspired today’s Quote of the Day.
Life Lesson 6
A Shift in Belief Expands Perceptions
and Alters the Experience
Journal Entry: January 19, 2011
We met with Dr. Borson yesterday for over an hour…again, so grateful for such wonderful doctors. She was very willing and open to hear my ‘perspective’ about why I felt my body manifested these cells so I shared with her some of my deep inner processing of the masculine/feminine energy, fears, adoption issues, etc. I also told her how much I respected her medical expertise and that I was willing and open to her suggestions for treatment. My only desire was to find a balanced way to walk this next phase of my journey.
She spent a lot of time describing the different ways breast cancer is categorized and that each is treated with a different protocol. My particular type is, of course, right in the middle – Luminal B-fast growing/hormonal, so chemotherapy is strongly encouraged. Even though my CAT scan was clear, there’s a high probability that there are still cancer cells somewhere in my body and the reason for chemotherapy is to treat the whole body and destroy those ‘rouge’ cells. So, I have chosen to do chemotherapy and my first treatment will be Friday, Feb. 11th. I am very comfortable with this decision and am surprised that I actually made it. Again, my past paradigms and perceptions are being turned upside down I’m listening to “The Magic Mirror” twice a day so I know my immune system is already getting a boost, and I’m not worried about ‘chemobrain’ either. If you ask my family, my brain has been rewiring for the past few years anyway so we’re not anticipating much change there. I hope you all can feel that I’m very comfortable and at peace with this decision. Today when I was listening to “The Magic Mirror” I felt and saw how I will actively participate with the chemotherapy drugs as they enter my body. Realizing that nothing in this world is all good or all bad, there’s a beauty and peace when the balance is recognized. I recognized that in life, death and decay must happen for new life to emerge – so, I am actively thanking all my cells and when the chemo enters, I will consciously embrace each cell that is destroyed with love and release it with gratitude knowing that the healthy ones will return, renewed. This is a deep, cellular clearing that I have been preparing for all my life.
Wow, this decision came as a surprise even to me! Talk about shifting an old belief. I’ve played harp in chemotherapy infusion units for years and would actually think to myself, “How can they just sit there, totally detached from their bodies and let that poison be injected into their system?” What I didn’t understand then were all the benefits of chemotherapy. I’m so grateful my doctor took the time to educate me and give me the facts, as the scientific community currently understands them, so I could make an informed decision.
Patty, a dear friend of mine, also reminded me that our word sacrifice comes from the Latin word “sacer,” which means “to make sacred, to consecrate, to make holy.” I became even more grateful as I visualized my healthy cells sacrificing themselves while actually helping me to become more sacred within. As each new cell was reborn into my body, it would be more aligned with my transforming beliefs and awakening self-love. In a very sacred way, chemotherapy actually accelerated my spiritual growth!
I feel this is what happened as I stayed open and receptive to the chemotherapy drugs, allowing them to enter my body without resistance or fear. Staying open allowed these drugs to “do their thing” and then leave my body quickly. I feel there was definitely a correlation between my beliefs about the drugs, my acceptance of their gift and my perception of how my body was realigning with self-love. Each chemotherapy treatment was a unique experience that offered me the opportunity to step more fully into the lesson I was learning about myself at the time… My body was transforming; my beliefs were expanding; my perceptions were shifting from the outside to the inside; and my experiences became moment to moment choices of balance and self-love.
