16931RE: [Meditation Society of America] Cancer

I called the man by 2 names, I see. He wasn’t “Bill” – he was “Claude”. I was still protecting his embarrassed family, I guess, by giving him a pseudonym. By now, they probably realize that Claude was onto something.

Many years ago, I knew of a man in my city who was diagnosed with an inoperable cancerous brain tumour. The doctors told him that he had less than 5 months to live, but recommended radiation treatment as well as chemotherapy. He was given a date for the first radiation treatment but he asked them to postpone it for a couple of days because he wanted time to prepare. They thought he was crazy. He used those 2 days to visualize. He also asked a lot of questions about how the chemotherapy worked & he applied visualization techniques before, during & after those treatments too. This was in the era of “Pacman” & Bill visualized chemo-Pacmen gobbling up the cancer cells. The tumour had been growing rapidly, but tests showed that it was beginning to shrink at a rate the medical types couldn’t believe. Eventually it was a mere pinpoint, all but gone.
Throughout Bill’s ordeal, he came in for much disrespect & ridicule in the hospitals & doctors’ offices. His relatives (whom I knew) considered him an embarrassment to the family. Apparently no one believed that a person could aid in his own healing – a sensible person was supposed to be a passive recipient of the treatments, without wasting everyone’s time with questions & delays for “preparation”. He lived with the tumour for a couple of decades. It would begin to grow every so often, & Claude would rev up his visualizations to shrink it again. Eventually, the doctors were less inclined to make fun of him. When he died (of something else), it was a peaceful, happy event, because he was prepared & accepting. I wish I’d known him personally. He’d figured all this out for himself.

Cancer is a wonderful equal opportunity
provider. There may be no more powerful
facts of life teacher. The choices of how
to respond to it physically are usually between
surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. The
beneficial effect these have can be hampered
by the stress of worry, fear, obsessive thoughts,
and energy squandered in negativity. Medical
science has produced a large body of work that
proves that it is most advantageous to cease
doing those things that continue to cause stress
and begin doing those things that promote the
optimum functioning of the immune and healing
systems. Changing to a healthy diet, exercising,
and other "alternate healing" methods are gaining
respectability in the orthodox medical community,
but none more than meditation. This ancient
practice has been shown to be a tremendous tool
for healing. There is no better way to undo the
negative reactions on the body, mind, and emotions
that are produced by the adrenaline release fear,
anger, and worry invariably precipitate. The
endorphin release that comes with meditation
properly primes the mind and emotions in a way
that will let the body do its healing most
advantageously. With that in mind, the following
technique is offered in the hope that it will set
the stage for a complete cure. It is aimed at
those warriors blessed with the chance to do
battle against this terrible dragon armed with
the weaponry of either surgery, radiation,
chemotherapy, or some combination of them.
Position yourself in whatever posture you have
found most condusive to concentration. Think
about each of the procedures that you will be
going through in as great detail as you can.
Visualize them relative to the maximum benefit
they will bring you.
In your minds eye, see the surgical procedure
removing 100% of the cancerous tissue. See healthy
cells growing and repairing the area. See yourself
whole and healthy.
Visualize radiation passing through your body,
frying any cancerous or precancerous cells. See
new healthy cells evolve and multiply. See yourself
whole and healthy.
See chemotherapy molecules traveling through
your bloodstream attacking and killing all the
aberrant cells. See healthy cells swarming to
the affected area and bring healing. See yourself
whole and healthy.
As well as visualizing the physical healing
processes, feel your self-love and deep inner
desire for good health fill and heal you emotionally
and mentally. This effort will stimulate and
allow your immune system to do its job unimpeded
by the damage that unchecked negativity brings.
Most of all, know your Self to be the unchangeable,
eternal universal divine consciousness that is
transcendent of your body, mind, or emotions,
and live happily ever after.
