Successful Treatment for Colon Cancer
A woman, 45, came to me for support after being diagnosed with colon cancer. She had been receiving chemotherapy to shrink the tumor, but it did not appear to be accomplishing much. Her doctor wanted her to have surgery to remove the tumor and most of her colon. She did not want to comply, because the procedure would involve a colostomy, requiring her to wear an external bag to remove feces for the rest of her life. To her, this prospect was horrifying in itself, but to make matters worse, her father had died shortly after having had this procedure himself. In her mind, surgery meant a colostomy and certain death. The clients goal was to avoid the drastic surgery altogether. One of my goals for this client was to help her break the connection in her mind between surgery, colostomy, and death, so that she could have surgery if she chose, without seeing it as a death sentence.

We began meeting once a week. During this time, her doctor and family pressed her to schedule surgery. In the end, she had the surgery just a little over a month after contacting me, so we had four sessions before she was hospitalized. Three of these sessions entailed meditation and counseling aimed at reframing her attitudes, encouraging her body to heal, and coming to a peaceful decision about the surgery. The fourth session was a Reiki treatment in my office, followed by Absent Treatments I sent to her while she was in the hospital.

From the beginning, this woman felt a good deal of comfort from our work together and looked forward to our sessions. When I teach Dr. Irving Oyles inner guide meditation, I tell people that the guides are parts of themselves, and regarding them this way is the most therapeutic approach to take. However, it is quite possible that at times the guides function more like what we call spiritual guides or higher beings. Plus, deep meditation leads to communion with the Divine. I guided this client into visualizations in which she conversed with her inner guides. But more than this, when I meditated with this client, I felt a powerful, warm, and loving Presence fill the room. It was palpable and awe-inspiring. Afterward she told me she saw, felt, and conversed with Jesus during our meditation.

As time passed, her doctor and her family pressed her to schedule surgery, but she still did not want to. I suggested she request further tests to help her make an informed decision, but she did not care to do that, either. Ultimately she scheduled the surgery, sure she would awaken to find she had had a colostomy. She felt defeated.

The night before her surgery, I sat to send her a Reiki distance healing and realized that I was feeling a little defeated, too, as if I had absorbed her attitude. To help her, I knew I had to have more faith and a more positive attitude. As I sent Reiki energy to her, I realized that no one knew what the outcome of the surgery would be; there were only predictions and expectations based on the past. No one really knew what the current condition of the tumor was, since no further tests had been done. As it happened, the surgeons discovered that the tumor had shrunk enough for them to perform a temporary ileostomy rather than a permanent colostomy! They said the tumor had shrunk from about the size of a melon to that of an orange. So although my client had to endure the dreaded pouch for a while, she had a second surgery a few months later to reverse the ileostomy.
