I have tremendous compassion and empathy for anyone having to face a terminal disease or who has a loved one facing this diagnosis. First and foremost, it’s important to understand how anything but inner peace can exasperate and even accelerate disease. If you’re supporting a loved one, your added stress can be contagious too.
Instead, this is the single most important time to surrender into inner peace. Focus and align squarely on the present moment without resistance. Expand your feelings of gratitude for every aspect of your life. If you’re not already a meditator, this is a great time to begin.
Scientific research shows how “meditation” directly correlates with a myriad of physiological benefits including improved immune function; reducing activity of viruses and emotional distress; increases blood flow; improved flow of air to the lungs resulting in easier breathing; harmonizes endocrine system; relaxes nervous system; and prevents, slows or controls pain of chronic diseases.
Keep bringing yourself back to this moment, enjoying it fully, while making choices supporting your highest well-being. I know of a young gal who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, and wholly stepped into the present moment – becoming completely ONE with “what is.” Something miraculous happens when we do this. The doctors were amazed when her disease began reversing to Stage 2, then Stage 1. A few months later, she was entirely healed and went off and joined the Peace Corp.
