Session 7

Overcoming challenges

Things come up. You may be experiencing an unexpected surgery or another concern with your cancer. When we are faced with another challenge during our cancer journey, it can trigger our old thinking, our fears and negative thoughts. When this happens it’s a good idea to go back to clearing, and use some tools to navigate the challenges.

  • Tool #8: Forgiveness Visualization.
In this visualization you are invited to the Forgiveness Room. The person with whom you have conflict enters and this is your opportunity to communicate with that person, and say all that you need to say, as if this was the last chance you had to speak with them. If you feel to, you can say “I forgive you” or you can ask for their forgiveness. Then see if there is anything they want to share with you. We, then, will call in a vision of ourselves. Say everything you can think of that you may need to forgive yourself for. If forgiveness feels difficult for you with that person, or yourself, we will call upon God or Spirit to help you get to a place where you can forgive. Forgiving ourselves creates self-love and creates an environment for optimal well-being. If additional feelings and thoughts come up, write about it in your journal and know that this is part of the process.
  • Assignment:
  1. Continue to write about and look at whatever is there for you on the three questions.
  2. Continue to look at your life and see where you can alleviate stress or conflict.
  3. Continue to look and see if there is anyone you still need to forgive and if it feels right take some action there.
  4. Try the forgiveness exercise one more time.
  5. Do one of the guided visualizations for peace.
