Dealing with Cancer or Major Illness in Adults and Children

If you are dealing with cancer or major illness in adults and children, I have a special article for you.  I’m writing it with you in mind, so know that I am sending waves of love to you right now to help your healing journey.

It’s going to shake you up and probably make you cry.  Because when you believe that your thoughts can get better and help you create the life you’ve dreamed of, it’s actually possible to make that happen.  (It might also leave you disbelieving because we all know that the negative is also true, that if you have a clouded mind and believe you’ll end up sick in a certain way, you probably will.  No need to blame and feel guilt, just move on to a right now that is better feeling.)

Mind you, I am a former teacher/guidance counselor and pride myself in being a calm and considerate person, and I am always striving to be better and more compassionate each day…

My daughter tried to get me to watch “The Fault in Our Stars” in the theater last year, and I wouldn’t go, because my personal belief system had changed so much about cancer (we had a scare and thought that my middle daughter was pretty ill), that I didn’t think I could handle watching it without feeling super sympathetic about disease and bringing me back to that same fear based thinking that I was doing before.

Using Thankfulness for Quick Energy Improvements

Need a quick energy improvement? Your whole demeanor will change for the better as you begin using thankfulness in your daily life…not only using it but practicing it, and really feeling it.  Saying “thank you”, and feeling “thank you” can be very different experiences.

How do you feel thankfulness when you think life is terrible or you have a big problem?  You get a clear mind before you start affirming the good things you do want…

In LOA, you literally ignore negative emotions as much as possible:

  • When you think of a “past” event that caused you pain, instead of focusing on the painful part, remind yourself of the amazing ways you overcame the situation and how you are now stronger and more ready to claim the great stuff you have put in your vortex.
  • Look at the big picture as much as you can, realizing that life is awesome if we step back a bit.
  • Realize that everything is temporary, and that you can choose to feel better right now, and that is where the power is.

Pivot to a better feeling thought:

  • Abraham-Hicks or Esther Hicks say that when you are feeling something negative or not wanted, we know intuitively that we can think a better thought, and it doesn’t need to be a big jump, but only a little step toward positivity.
  • She also says that when we are in a really negative situation, that is the perfect time to ask for what we are really wanting.  For example, when we are sick, we want wellness.  When money is tight, we want abundance.  When we feel tired, we want energy and vitality.  When we are lonely, we are wishing for a good relationship.  The asking is greater when there are more problems, so use this effectively–turn it to the positive and choose a better feeling thought.
  • I saw Esther in Philly on Oct. 19th, 2013 for a very powerful workshop, and she began with, “I know I can say that better…” to just about everything she said.

Think of easy and comfortable thoughts that don’t bring up resistance:

  • Think about trees or some part of nature that you love.
  • Think about a pet or just pet your dog or cat (the unconditional love pets show keeps us in good alignment).
  • Think about topics that just make you get happy, and try to refer to the top 10 things you love/appreciate often throughout the day.

When you get into the vortex, and are feeling pretty great, that’s when you can affirm more about what you really love in life and what you are truly thankful for and appreciating!

  • Write a page or two about the things and people, life events and circumstances that have brought you the most joy or the most change in life (daily).
  • Show thankfulness to others by helping when there is an opportunity.
  • Give journals as gifts and ask others to write out their appreciation as well.
  • Start a local group to meet weekly or monthly to get more effective and affective in emotions, especially appreciation.
  • Serve others:  Look at the Random Acts of Kindness Website to find ideas that you resonate with.  Inspire yourself and you will ignite others.


  • Think of yourself as a being of light, that is lit up and full of life and love.  You are so full that you are overflowing.  Your abundance is so strong, your love is so great, that it’s just pouring out.  Others are feeling it as well and holding more of their own light now.  They are glowing brighter because of you and you because of all the things that you are easily given.  No one has to compete or perform or jump through a hoop.  Every being is worthy of love and health and abundance.  You are thankful for all of the experiences in your life, because really they have all been good.  They were either directly good, or they showed you what you didn’t want and pushed you in a way that you decided to be better than the circumstances you were given.  All is well.  Life continues to flow, and you are thankful for it all.

There’s a few thoughts on bringing fast appreciation and thankfulness into life and milking it…therefore getting you more of it.  Watch your own energy soar as you begin to feel more good feelings because you took the time to appreciate.

Much love!
