Overcoming Anxiety and Fear
...in which you relax the mind and its looping thoughts, replacing fear with peace.
From the book Intuition, Cancer & Miracles by Sara Wiseman
Cancer isn’t just a disease of the body; it also affects the emotions. Even saying the word cancer brings us to a place of terror, resistance, and stress. When these feelings of low vibration take over, our the body loses its ability to hold immunity.
Thus, while the cancer cells are busy dividing and conquering, the mind begins to spin out into panic, right at the time when we most need to concentrate on holding a high vibrational state.
The first part of your healing begins when you stop existing in a fear state. This is not simple, but it is also not hard. The secret is to provide enough repetition so the brain’s endless circling is interrupted when it goes into fear; we trick it into choosing another state.
You may find yourself doing this meditation more than any other meditation in this book. This one is perhaps the most important of the practices. You will be able to effectively raise your vibration out of the fear state, and then move into a place of peace and bliss, which is where healing happens...

One sunny Saturday you’re driving along, radio blasting, feeling fine. You’re in the groove, hurtling happily through time and space to wherever it is you’re headed, when suddenly, in a screech of tires and brakes, everything changes.
You find yourself crashed into the ditch, lured by some tricky flash of sunlight, with your car totaled and your body hurt and sirens wailing in the distance. And as you wait for help to arrive, fear floods your heart like a stain. Your entire Universe has flipped on its side, and suddenly you’re looking at things from a completely different perspective.
That’s what happened to me. Except I wasn’t in a car.
I was in a hotel room. A posh one at that, paid for by my publisher. I’ve never seen so many fluffy white pillows piled up on one bed, or been privy to such crisp creasing of the sheets.
I was in Denver, promoting my latest book at an industry tradeshow, when my life first flipped over. I’d had a busy day of meeting and greeting, and now was dressing for a dinner with my publisher and a few other authors.
I was feeling good indeed, in this lovely hotel room where fluffy white towels seemed to reproduce at will. I’d just showered, and now my body was clad in one towel, my wet hair wrapped in another, and I twirled in front of the grand mirror in my room, happily thinking of the evening to come, when suddenly I spotted something on my shoulder.
It was like that car crash. One moment I was fine.
The next moment, I was most definitely not.
I stared at this funny mole on my shoulder, and I knew right then, things were about to go horribly wrong. “I have cancer,” I heard my mind say to me, in a deep, gut twisting kind of way. And fear flooded in like a tsunami.
I stood there in my towels, gaping at this mole I’d never noticed before. It was brown black. Scabby. Weird. Like something that didn’t belong on my body, like something that was not of me: a strange, dark, evil thing.
I have cancer, I repeated in my head, even as I dressed for dinner. And then more hopefully ... I will get rid of this cancer. I will get it removed immediately, when I get back from Denver. There’s still time. I’ll go to my doctor and get it removed, and all will be well.
There’s still time.
As I dressed for dinner, I worked to let my worries go. After all, I’d only just noticed this mole. Surely there was still time to change its course. Surely I could just head back home, have it removed, and the problem would be solved.
I headed out of my hotel room, confident this problem would go away.
But the Universe had a different plan...

I've received so many comments about the need for some new ways to think about family karma and healing family dysfunction, I decided to offer this course a few months ahead of schedule.
If you have family dysfunction, in your current family, in your family of origin or deep in the lineage of your ancestors, this course will allow you to understand, clear and heal both yourselves and others from a karmic perspective.

Last fall, I was diagnosed with melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Two surgeries later, I’ll be the first to admit: cancer was one of the scariest, most painful experiences in my life.
It was also one of the most profound.
Most folks, especially my physicians, will contend that traditional medicine was what cured me. I’ll agree with them—with one caveat. Because even though my surgeries worked—and for this I am utterly grateful--something else was at work, as well.
This was the miraculous healing energy of the Divine.
I say this, because at no time during my during my cancer journey was I ever alone or separate from the extraordinary presence of the Divine/One/All. During this time, via intensive and ongoing sessions of meditation and prayer, I experienced:
• Visions and messaging from Divine beings, assuring me that all was well.
• Visits from my departed father, who told me the same.
• A slew of what I can only peg as “miracles”, including healings and psychic surgeries from Divine beings.
Even though what happened to me still lies outside of mainstream beliefs about healing, I believe that my experience is not uncommon—or need not be uncommon—for those who face cancer or life threatening illness.
When we are faced with our own mortality—which is exactly what happens when we face cancer or any other serious illness—we have the same experience as those who have Near Death Experiences (NDEs).
In other words, we become spiritually awake at a new level.
I had my first NDE in 2000, and this experience brought about the kind of opening in my consciousness that you often hear about from other folks who’ve had NDEs: I became awake very suddenly, and I also became psychic.
But my second NDE—my cancer experience—brought me to awakening and consciousness at a whole other level. The ideas of Oneness, and living in the Now suddenly weren’t abstract concepts any more—they were just the way things are.
My melanoma was a great shock to me. Yet in having this absurd monkey wrench thrown into the workings of my life, I was able to learn great spiritual truths that I would have not gotten to on my own.
Like many of you, I already had the tools of meditation, prayer and spiritual trance in my toolkit. But in learning how to use these tools specifically for cancer—and by including the marvelous tools of mantra and sound healing— I was able to come to a profound understanding of the nature of dis-ease in the body, the fear and anxiety it creates, and how we can create healing—even miracles—with help from the Divine.
The journey through cancer is unique for each person. Yet regardless of treatment or outcome, it arrives to us as a presence; a gift that teaches us how to live outside the constraints of fear, and to embrace the realities of love in this lifetime.

Last night, I was sitting on the deck allowing my self and thoughts to waft along in the mid-summer's night breeze. Suddenly, everything shifted. I felt myself—not my ego self, but my soul self—expand and condense and dissolve into everything.
I don't know how long I was in that place; it was beyond heaven, it was beyond sexuality, it was beyond bliss, nirvana, kundalini, and so forth.
I suddenly became part of everything, and I stayed in this state for how long I do not know.
I was doing nothing special; just relaxing, with the trees and the air. This awakening moment was instantaneous; time did not stop, because time is not real.
The veil of time was lifted, and everything happened at once.
