The Creation of a Healthy, Joyous life

For better or worse, I glean my sense of self worth from being of service, hence my choice to become a medical Doctor. It soon became obvious, however, that within the paradigm of current medical science there is no cure for the chronic diseases that affect us.

What we are offered is a plethora of pills that maintain us in an persistent state of illness.This unrelenting chronicity was unacceptable so I chose to specialize in General Surgery. Here, I could make a real difference rather than be a manager of disease.

Even though General Surgery was rewarding and empowering, it was obvious that lifestyle changes can prevent and often cure most illnesses.  Diet, exercise, and mental health practices are the corner stones of a Holistic approach to maintaining health rather than curing disease, so holistic health advice, and counseling became integral to my practice.

The next insight came quickly. Lifestyle changes make a huge impact on illness and disease but there is a deeper core of truth that most of us do not see or want to address.  Our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs create the reality of our lives completely and totally.

This core aspect of health was not taught to me in Medical School. I came to this understanding through a constant and persistent search for truth, meaning, and healing in my own life.

Quantum Science has proven through direct experimentation that everything in existence both animate and inanimate is a form of energy in a spectrum of frequency and vibration. We create our lives using this energy by the focus of our attention and consciousness. For an easy to understand explanation of the laws of Quantum see Dr. Manur Samanta-Laughton’s book, “Punk Science..”http://ww.amazon.com/Punk-Science-Inside-Mind-God/dp/1905047932/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458926251&sr=1-1&keywords=punk+science

The field of Epigenetics emerged from the pioneering work of Bruce Lipton Phd. with stem cells at Stanford University.  His experiments proved that genomic DNA is not the sole arbiter of our biology. Rather, the expression of DNA is modulated by our feelings, emotions and beliefs regarding ourselves and our place in the world, whether we feel safe and expansive or threatened and contracted.

This work is summarized in  “The Biology of Belief”.ww.amazon.com/Biology-Belief-Unleashing-Consciousness-Miracles/dp/1401923127/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458925559&sr=1-1&keywords=bruce+liptonhttp://ww.amazon.com/Biology-Belief-Unleashing-Consciousness-Miracles/dp/1401923127/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458925559&sr=1-1&keywords=bruce+lipton

Energy medicine taught me that unexpressed emotion, (energy in motion) becomes locked into the cellular structure of the body as the amorphous feeling of stress. We now know that stress is the leading cause of chronic illness such as heart disease, asthma, fibromyalgia and a host of other chronic conditions. https://www.cmu.edu/news/archive/2007/October/oct10_cohenjama.shtml

So here are the keys to optimal health and personal fulfillment.

  • Beliefs create thoughts.
  • Thoughts create emotions.
  • Emotions create either positive expansive feelings such as love, peace and joy or negative contracted feelings such as fear, restriction and resistance.

Beliefs are the software that directs the hard drive of our brain computers to produce thoughts. These thoughts elicit an emotional response that produces a vibration and frequency within our body and energy fields. This resonant frequency becomes magnetic to, and attracts the circumstances and reality of that belief. Belief creates reality.

These are the keys to empowerment. We may choose to consciously create what we want and desire or unconsciously create by default what we do not want.

Where do our beliefs come from? Surprisingly most are not our own.. In the hypnogogic state of childhood we download everything that we are told, see, hear, and experience into the hard drive of our brains which then forms the foundation of our beliefs. Unfortunately most are untrue and dis-empowering.

The over riding purveyor of beliefs about the nature of reality and our place in it comes from religion. We are told that we are born in sin. We are not good enough, our humanity is something to be eschewed and we need salvation so that we may escape from it.

These beliefs create within us the energy of fear, restriction, and self loathing which leads to stress, sickness and disease.  Collectively, humanity is caught in the grip of self-annihilation, and planetary destruction.

So how do we consciously create health, well-being, and the life that we desire and deserve. We examine every thought that comes into our minds which is usually a recurring theme of “not good enough” repeated thousands of times per hour.

We examine our emotions, are they expansive and joyous or contractive, and despairing. Then we examine the underlying beliefs that were fed to us and see them for the gross errors that they are.

So pause, take a good deep breath, and focus on the love, and joy, that is within you and all around you. Step into the healthy, creative life that you desire and deserve, that is available in each and every moment.

The breaking point that initiated my Soul’s Evolution

I was a practicing general surgeon, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, just returned from a College conference. I stood with beer in hand at the edge of a concrete slab that my husband was constructing to extend the deck of our home.

It was evening and as I looked at the lights shining in the windows, I ruminated. I had placed myself on surgical call the very next day after my return and I thought to myself, “Cheryl why don’t you ever give yourself a break?”

With that thought I unconsciously took a step backwards into thin air. In my mind’s eye I saw the fall in slow motion as I landed on my left side on a stone wall and felt my ribs crack and break.

I crawled back to the house and was taken to the hospital’s emergency room. After XR confirmed that the three broken ribs on my left side had not punctured my lung, I insisted on going home.

I was forced to lay on my back in bed while my ribs healed and of course immediately started to anticipate how soon I could get back to work. I figured two to three weeks tops.

During those interminable hours in bed I also started to muse. Why did this event occur? I was an only child, who never did anything risky, no accidents, never a broken bone. This accident had to be deeply meaningful.

It finally began to dawn upon me that my life was severely out of balance. I had chosen to become a general surgeon to prove to myself and everybody else that I was “good enough, smart enough and brave enough” to justify my existence.

I chose the most male dominated career that I could conceive of doing because I wanted to be aligned with the ones who held the power in this world. I would not stand with the weak and powerless, the feminine.

True to type I was back at work in three weeks, driving myself relentlessly but I also started a quest to discover the disowned and rejected parts of myself.

I read Carl Gustav Jung and was intrigued by his ideas of archetypes and the collective consciousness and the role of symbols in the unconscious mind. I followed the work of his students as they delved deep into the archetype of the Divine Feminine. I looked at cultures where the feminine was still honored, in Hinduism, and other indigenous belief systems.

As the years passed I came to realize that my need to prove myself worthy of existing started in the womb of my mother. I was born into a fundamental religious family. My mother, the last of 16 children conceived me out of wedlock to a lover who abandoned her and so I was formed in a womb of shame, guilt, and “not good enough.”

I came to see that the world in which I was born had been invaded by the Patriarchal Judeo-Christian-Muslim religion that is based on the great Lie and deception of Original Sin and the need for Redemption.

This doctrine had enslaved humanity for the past two thousand years by the most brutal means possible, torture, murder, and mind control. It became apparent to me that this ‘God” was not the supreme creator but a ruthless madman aimed at destroying humanity and the world through the suppression, dis-empowerment and exile of the Divine Feminine.

 

43

Twelve years after that fateful accident still immersed in my career, doing what was expected, my husband was diagnosed with end stage cancer. I quit my job to be at his side. He died a year and a half later. This was not supposed to happen. This was not to be my life, yet it was.

I went into retreat to heal my soul and again to find the answer to why? Two years later I was introduced to John Lamb Lash’s work, “Not in his Image”. It took almost a year to get through it but at the end I understood that I had been born for this. I would write a short mythic tale of the Fallen Goddess as told by the Gnostics and as presented by John Lash.

I would help to bring back into the collective consciousness of humanity another story to usher in the reemergence of the Divine Feminine to heal our souls and restore sanity to humanity gone mad in a frenzy of self hatred, hell bent on destroying themselves, and the planet, our mother Gaia.

It has been said that your greatest wound is your greatest gift and so it is that I offer my gift to humanity.
