My spiritual journey to discovering my purpose.
Cancer was just a small part of my journey!
When I found out I had breast cancer, I knew then, that this was a certification I had to go through
to live my true purpose. I truly believe I was being prepared for this day, because the moment I
got the news, the only thing I was certain about was next year this time, it will all be over! I kept a positive
attitude through my whole journey, because I could clearly see my destination,
I just had to take a detour to get there!
I knew I can only do what I have control over, and trust that the rest would just have to work out.
My positivity gave my family the strength they needed to be by my side.
This was my fight and I was ready to win!
It all began when I asked myself "what is my purpose in life"? I felt I was wasting my life and not
living the life I am supposed to. A strong voice within me kept saying you are not doing enough. Through
meditation, I was able to learn about myself and quickly realized, I was standing in my own way. Anger, stress,
unhappiness were among some of the things blocking me from transforming. Through meditation I was able
to figure out what part of me needed healing.
I truly believe we bring diseases onto ourselves. Yes, the environment we live in today is probably not the safest, cleanest or purest and it definitely plays a role but there is more to it. Just like Louis Hayes said every part of our body that aches or is in distress, it is a warning that something is not right within.
Through my meditation practice I realized I was carrying baggage from my childhood and all those instances in my life that made me feel like I was not good enough. All that animosity, and the fight to change was just causing my inner soul pain. I was able to forgive myself, ask for forgiveness and let go of what did not serve me any longer.
Going through chemotherapy was the worst part of it all. But every time I felt like I couldn't do this, I
reminded myself that there is something better waiting for me after this. I knew there was a lesson to
be learned through this suffering. Cancer came into my life to teach me, I was enough! It taught me to stop fighting with myself! It taught me to accept myself and most of all it taught me to LOVE myself. Love was missing, love for myself got lost along the way. The minute I understood that and realized that, life became beautiful.
