I Am Grateful For My Spiritual Journey To Health And Wellness

I am nearing four and one-half years of health after multiple cancers and surgeries in 2017. I am grateful that I am still healthy, but never do I take my present health for granted. The source stimulating these postings is my joy with life, and my sincere appreciation and happiness to have time to “pay it forward” to others while here.

As many people do, I read and ask questions, and share with others to learn about healing and health and wellness. I can tell you from experience that there is a lot to learn and practice to maintain health. Sometimes I stray from my devotion to a healthier lifestyle, better eating, mindful practices with toxins and GMOs in our world, and Western and Eastern medical beliefs. But, when my CT scans and labs remind me that my body chemistry is changing, I jump back into better practices and pray.

People ask me what am I doing to stay so healthy? I tell them what I am learning, but many people do the same things I do, and much more, and, sadly, many people continue to die around me which makes me so sad, and gives me a feeling of survivor’s guilt. I want to do more to help others so I keep posting happy ideas, and peaceful thoughts. Also, I post joyful events like playing with your pets, and enjoyable moments with family and friends or beautiful trips deep into nature.

This month I am pulling all of my postings, videos, blogs, tweets, and Instagrams into more of a common “digital media” composite so that I may share what I believe and what I have learned thus far. If this is helpful to you, please let me know. If you would like more from me, please let me know.

I do believe that there is a definite and clear pathway to health and healing through a “spiritual journey” as well as with the help of traditional medicines from Western as well as Eastern knowledge bases. To remind us of our “spiritual journeys” during our illness I repost a YouTube video I made in January of 2019. Since that posting, I had the opportunity to travel to Lourdes France to the site of the “holy water”. I also have many people who are continuing to pray for me. I remain deeply grateful for all the prayers, and positive energies people send to me daily.

The information within this video is just a small fraction of spiritual healings and healing practices, but I share it with you mainly to remind you that you are in charge of your outcomes, in part. Continue to “fight like hell” to learn and participate in your own life, till the end.

Recognize the phrase you will hear frequently – “mind, body, spirit”- on your quest. Remember the doctors may take care of your “body”, but you must seek other assistance when healing your “mind” and “spirit”. It is a hard journey, but well worth the effort, and, most importantly, it is such a joyful journey!

Be grateful each and every day. Seize the day! Give to others. Count your blessings! Live in a “State of Gratitude” as possible. I am here with you and many, many others walking the same walk to health and wellness. You can do it! Blessings to you…

The poem I read is from my Mother’s poetry in a book called, “A House Inside of Me Poetry by Marian Elsie Blake” (2013) by Mary Blake Huer.

    I agree that it is a spiritual journey. I follow St. Therese of Lisieux. Every day I ask her to intercede for me and ask the Higher Power to help those who need help. My list is always people I know who are struggling with serious health problems or mental health problems. I can tell you that her intercession has brought positive results many many times.

      Thank you for sharing this idea. I also pray daily for persons I know who are in need. I hope we may encourage others to do the same and posted this particular post for a select group of individuals with serious illnesses, particularly cancer. I encourage persons reading your comment to do the same through prayer. I want to encourage individuals to believe that they actually have the power to effect a change, and to take actions in their lives. There is amazing power in collective positivity.

    “There is amazing power in collective positivity.” Words to live by. The past couple of years have shown the damage caused by “collective negativity.” Live your own life with positivity and trust that others will do the same, to create the collective positivity we need. thanks for this, Mary.
