There are definitely complementary things you can do to support healthโ€ฆ

But expecting people to do the work for you is only an ILLUSIONโ€ฆ

You might think it is a โ€œrich statementโ€ coming from someone who has had 12 sessions of chemo right?

Well the 12 sessions of chemo did its own job indeed and I am grateful for thatโ€ฆ

The work I did during 7.5 months day in day out couldnโ€™t have been outsourcedโ€ฆ

Spending 7.5 months by myself in self quarantine allowed myself to do internal work I needed to do.

These days I believe in all possibilities because I saw what my body went through and what it was capable forโ€ฆ

I felt how emotionally numb and lost I was and how I was able to change my internal world…

People ask me all the time:

I stopped searching for outside answers and spent time getting to know who I was.

I started owing and showing up to who I was.

No more hidingโ€ฆ

No more liesโ€ฆ

I build my certainty each day I was prepared to take action towards creating a new body, mind and soul.

I had plenty of excuses to not do it but I dragged myself to do it when I was sick and scared for my life at the beginning.

Unhappy and unfulfilled

Physically and emotionally uncomfortable

Don’t make the same mistake I did๐Ÿคฏ

I thought I could do it all…

I thought I knew it all…

I thought I was a good person…

I thought I was an honest person…

I thought I had it all together…

Don’t get me wrong…

I still think I am a good person…

And I am honest too…

But that doesn’t mean that I was immune to cancer…

We don’t automatically get better health because we hold ourselves to the highest standards as a decent human being…

Having it all under control – meaning good packed lunches, dinner organized, clothes washed, half organized house doesn’t guarantee you good health either….

And doing it all is probably the last thing that guarantees you good health…

Because we can’t do it all…

Have you chatted with someone who you thought had it altogether and realized that they didn’t after all?

We are all humans…

We make mistakes…

Sometimes we learn from it…

And when we don’t…

Life presents us with the same challenge in a different form…

until we learn it for real…

But this is a story for another email….

When the doctor confirmed I had Stage 3 Bowel Cancer, I thought to myself:

I worked so hard to be a good person. Why me?

I have kids….

As I started getting the courage to put my hand up and say:

I don’t know it all…

I can’t do it all…

I am a good person but there are a few things I need to work on…

I am honest but I havenโ€™t been honest to myself…๐Ÿคฆ

Things started changing…

Being honesty to ourselves is one of he hardest things we can do…

It is so much easier to hide ourselves in statements that protect us from changing…

When I started to share my story, to help people like the old version of myself…

I realized that the biggest issue was not in the doing but the thinking…

All the time people think they know it all…

they have tried everything…

and nothing works…

and they say to themselves I don’t have time or money to invest on myself…

and they say to themselves nothing is going to change…

Guess what?

Nothing ever changes…

and people get the same results…

But when you are honest to yourself…

things change…

You change….

You become the change…

Don’t make the same mistake as I did…

Don’t hide away from your truth…

Don’t hide away from what you can’t accomplish by yourself…

Don’t hide away from what you need to work on…

Don’t hide away from asking for help…

Be brave…

Show up to yourself…

Be real…

and watch the transformation happens…

The only thing that can promise good health is being honest with yourself…

It is working on yourself daily…

It is being true to yourself…

No magical pills…

Just a daily practice…

What are you doing about your health?

Today I had to go to the hospital…

To have a blood test as next week I am going to see my oncologist…

When I got to hospital, it is hard for me not to remember where I have been…

As I see people showing their sickness in the way they walk, how their facial expressions are…

I see a lot of pain…

Physical and emotional….

Today I felt so deeply inside me a strong desire to continue to do whatever I can each day not to get there again…

Reality is we are all going to die of something even though we try to ignore the subject and the reality of it all….

But it is not about dying…

The choices we make each day is about how we are going to live each day….

How can we change our future but making different choices now…

How can we treat our bodies now…How can we look after our minds….

How can we look heal our souls….

The more I dig into my studies, working with clients and the fascinating world of how our bodies and minds work…

I come back to the same conclusion….

We are the only ones who can change our future…

We are the only ones who can make different choices….

We are the only ones who can start treating our bodies differently…

We are the only ones who can change our habits…We are the only ones who can change our thoughts…

Nobody else can do this work for us….

Only us….only us….
