Opening minds and hearts to Hope and Inspiring Change to Lead a Creative Life!
Over 20 years ago I was magically aligned with a little girl who had cancer. I was her fitness and dance coach. At the time, I had a premonition that this cancer was preparation for something in my future. I don’t know how to explain it better than it was just a thought, nothing more. When my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in April of 2015 I thought oh, here we go , this is it. Then when I was diagnosed in September of 2015, I thought , ok this was not planned and this is surprising and in true fashion my sister went first. If you have followed my cancer journey, you know I have thought long and hard about this situation and done lots of self healing. Yes it has worked. I believe so. My breast cancer remains stationary and that is a good enough Victory for me to feel comfortable and solid in my decision and path. I also understand it is not comfortable for everyone else. I am ok with that. We are all doing the best we can. So the journey continues, my mom who has been my most angelic supporter and best friend often time punching board and “Tami believer” has now been diagnosed with ovarian cancer September of 2018…. Yes my sister and I are like WTF!! I sit here at the computer trying to get out my emotions cuz that is what my psychotherapist step mother says I need to do. So that is what I am doing. Expressing myself in a way that is comfortable this week.
Part of me feels like I am at the beginning of my journey again. Part of me feels sad. Part of me feels like I just wanna sit on my couch with my cat and cry. Part of me feels hopeful. Part of me feels a bit fearful. Part of me feels peaceful. Part of me feels this is more contrast to push me even more towards bliss. Part of me feels very deeply connected to my mom and sister. I understand health in a different way than I did 3 years ago and that is helping me grasp this new situation with a bit more peace and confidence. I feel like solitude is much more comforting at this point. It feels more at ease. I am collecting myself and seeking my answers and clarity with meditation and really digging deep again into who I really am and my beliefs and perceptions. Is this a test? To see how far I have come? To see how far WE have come?
When I was in hypnotherapy I imagined and would set my sessions up with “calling in the team”. It became the lighthearted joke, ok Tami “call in the team”. I called upon my mothers, my sisters, my dad, my grandma, my nana, my aunt, and sometimes my girlfriends into each session. The visual was basically me and my team that would march into each situation and I knew that they had my back so I felt much stronger to tackle whatever was needed. It was an extension of universe and source and how we are all connected. How we all can impact each other and magically support each other with just a thought. SO I am calling in team for my mom. The team of people and spirits that can help support my mom on HER journey. The more the merrier because my mom looooves to be social and hang around people. She is the social butterfly in the family… well my sister likes to as well… and I like it to some extent in the right moments. This TEAM I believe is why our family is on this particular leg of what is now our family journey. The belief in humanity and belief in ourselves is in the forefront of my own mind. The beliefs that we need to carry on blissfully and that everything is really ok. The belief that everything is always working out for each of us. That is how I carry on and what I tap into to get through these times. The difference NOW is that I really feel and believe this part of the story. My own personal cancer journey has taught me the infinite belief in myself and the spirt of who I am and why I am here. I know for sure that everything is ok. I travel with the TEAM every day and keep them close to my heart. I keep my angel coin close to remind me that the universe got our backs. I know everything is working out for us no matter what. We don't need to dissect and figure it out but to allow in and receive whatever gifts are arising and being passed to us at each moment in time.
Perhaps written words will help call in the team. Perhaps just my thoughts are strong enough to call in the team. Perhaps the addition of your thoughts are also enough of an addition to move this situation in a direction that permits mom to stay and enjoy life that feels good. Perhaps it is only my moms thoughts that will call in the team. My mom is lively and joyful and DEFINITELY someone you would want on your team. WE are in a good place because of what the last 3 years have showed us in this family journey. MOM is in a good place because she loves to follow and support and experience EVERYTHING her daughters experience and is always 1 step ahead of us. Of course she is super organized and has everything planned out and organized and scheduled in a lovely fashionable order. I told my mom I was gonna start calling her Judy (her name) so she would concentrate on herself instead of her daughters and grandkids. She bluntly told me she preferred glamma and mom. So that’s what we’re working with! A strong headed german descent healthy livin’ smiley and very direct mother and professional that seems to get through everything with flying colors. So I have no doubt everything is ok. It’s getting through these damn humanistic emotions!!
So cheers to my mommy and cheers to the next glass of wine we will share at one of her house parties! Please grab your drink of choice and cheers my mom, send her even more positive vibes, think shiny and purple visions (her favorite color). Life is good and we are all on Judy’s TEAM!! Love you mom!
