When one has cancer, they may have as their greatest desire – to not have cancer, fight the cancer etc. This is interpreted by the unconscious mind as they want to lose the cancer and therefore lose what cancer means. That is, they want to lose the problems caused by cancer and be as they were, before they received the diagnosis.

Can you see the problem with this?

The main problem most cancer sufferers would associate with cancer, is that it is deadly. So to lose ‘the cancer’ is to lose the threat of death, is this not so? This is the prime objective at the deep level of the unconscious mind, for this is how the unconscious mind interprets the conscious desire “I don’t want cancer/ I want to get rid of the cancer” etc. etc. This desire: This objective; is simply ineffective. It will achieve little benefit to the person.

As stated earlier, they usually want to be as they were, before they received the diagnosis. ‘I want everything to go back to normal’. There is usually no desire to remove the cause of the cancer, for they perceive (incorrectly) this is included, in the ‘losing’ of the cancer. The cancer, or more correctly, ill health, is a result of patterns, as is any disease (ill health) or for that matter, all results of any kind are a result of patterns (of information, actions etc). A side issue: The word disease misleads us, into thinking that we are talking about ‘something’, that is known and can be studied. Disease is a process, it is not a ‘something’ that you can have and not have. You are either in a state of health or a state of ill health, to varying degrees.

If you lose cancer, you will likely still have the disease (ill health) process. If you achieve ‘everything back to normal’, you will still have the disease process. The only question is – “Do you want health or ill health?” The answer to this question, is your desire and objective. Do not confuse it or alter it any other way. Be clear on this, this is your prime, numero uno choice, this is the choice and decision that guides and directs everything else. Throw away everything you have done up till now and make this choice and proceed from there. How can this not be your starting point?

To be healthy (if one has cancer) you need to have a completely different pattern of life. Most people can visualise a healthy living pattern. Diet is extremely important, especially so today. But the biggest change that is needed in the existing pattern, is on the emotional level. People heal cancer (usually accidental) when they make a decision (totally with their whole mind and body) and the decision is in 2 parts.

1. They finally know that their life is no longer viable, that is, that if they keep the pattern of their existence, then they will die. So the person is in limbo, for there is a constant choice and it is death or life, if they are equal then there is only death.

2. The only way to survive is to have a different 'Life'. Once there is a different Life, then the mind will choose life rather than death. This new life though is a completely different pattern. The main part of it is, is a different identification.

When we identify with the old pattern, we think this is who I am, The 'this' is our self worth and image, our values, our behavior, our emotions, our beliefs, our perceptions. We are not these things, these are the pattern and instructions that create our experience. This is the great resistance to healing. Transform the pattern and you heal automatically and the cancer cells revert to normal cells.
There is no guilt implied, the life pattern that one has, is a result of the environment one has grown up in and includes all the lessons and meanings one has picked up, absorbed and been taught in early childhood. The pattern then is a blueprint that we follow unconsciously. The cancer sufferer has done nothing wrong. The cancer is a result/reaction to the pattern. If we take responsibility for our pattern (once again there is no guilt or blame, these are totally unnecessary emotions) then we can take responsibility for our healing. Only we can heal ourselves. What prevents healing is the old pattern and it is imperative that this becomes invalid, for once the unconscious mind deems the old pattern invalid, then it will stop operating. Anyone can heal themself and be healthy. You wouldn't expect a heavy smoker to want to cure cancer and still be a heavy smoker. He would need to change and be a non smoker (which is different to a smoker who can't smoke). Survivors, regardless of the approach they took, report that their life has more meaning and purpose and that their values have changed. This is a changed pattern, if we change the pattern first and deliberately, then there will be many more healed.

PS. People resist change. Being healthy and cancer free is a dramatic change from being a cancer sufferer. The Deeper the change – the more powerful the result.
