Some people does not have the courage to say it out loud so the people around them doesn't know how to handle it. Your expression is very relevant and helpful for the awareness and understanding of cancer.

After reading your latest entry I chose to write in my own journal. I choose to share this with you and all that care to share in this journey. Thank you for touching my life. The reasons I'm sure are yet to be experienced. With Love, Todd 9/25/2006 10:01 AM Hello God, Self, Angels and all of you that care to be here. Thank you for this opportunity to share with you a moment in time ( The illusion of time.) I first wish to thank all of you for your loving thoughts and sincere love. I am blessed to be surrounded by the greatest teachers (Angels) and be a part of a universe that is made up completely of love. I am grateful for all the wonderful things, words and thoughts that have been sent my way and I wish to never take any of those things for granted. Thank you Thank you Thank You. I am torn between the desire to go back to my last entry and re-read what was written, or to simply just write. I am not even sure at this point what I have shared and what I need to. I simply felt the need to add something to my journal. This morning I was sent a blog entry about a woman that has just had a breast removed due to cancer. I have a feeling that I should write to her, even though I do not know her and she doesn't know me. After I read her latest entry, I read some of the responses. Some were very sympathetic, encouraging and informational. One in particular led me to one person's view on causes and remedies. Doctor's reasons for ineffective and expensive treatments. The one thing I found to be very sad was that after reading for more than an hour, it was not mentioned once that our thoughts create the cancer within our bodies. The article touched on every kind of environmental cause. From the air that we breathe to the food we eat, the blame was external. The responses to this woman's wonderful truth filled blog entry saddened me as most were reinforcing the very thoughts that probably created the cancer in the first place. I know that I am certainly not an expert in the field of medicine and that I know very little about cancer. But I am completely compelled to voice my opinion. I believe it is not me, but a voice of my intuition or my Angels, or the words of God that brought me to write this today. So I will try to put my human self aside and let the words of universal divinity flow. Thank you Todd. For getting the hell out of the way? Ha ha ha. Yes in a manner of speaking. The hell that you speak about does need to get out of the way. To move aside for the truth of love to be present. Ok. That makes sense. What am supposed to do with that? Do as you are chosen to do. Remind me, I need that reminder now and then. Use the gifts that you have to spread the words of truth. God, that sounds way too cliché' I can rephrase it if you wish. That would be great. Explain it in detail please. After all, I am only human. So you think. Huh? SO YOU THINK. Well, I am only human. I am a living, breathing mass of confusion. No No No. What I mean is you are what you think. Do you think that you are only human? Do you think that you are confused? Todd, you are what you think. Yes I get that….again. So what am I missing? Sharing. Sharing? Yes…share your thoughts. Share your intuition. Share your insight. Share that which you are. Do you mean share my love? Yes, share all that you are. The gifts that you have are nothing until you manifest them by sharing them. Are you telling me to once again get off my ass and spread the words we share? Is that what you think? That is what I am thinking right now. Then you defy your thoughts. Huh? You heard me. Yes, but what does that mean, "Defy my thoughts."? Todd, have you forgotten? If you are thinking about doing something, it is preventing you from acting on it. The very literal act of continually thinking about doing it….. ……ok ok I get it. Or should I say "remember it'. So what does that lesson have to do with me today? Share the words with your new friends. The thought of being a cancer victim or cancer survivor will continuously reinforce that thought and the experience of that thought will be made manifest. What else? There has got to be more. God, please don't leave us hanging. Very well. If you "THINK" it will "HELP". Ok. I got that. What do we think about then? Think about all that exists comes from one source. That source is an infinite well of something so powerful that anything other than its contents simply cannot exist in its presence. Anything that is made from this substance has power over the illusion of its opposite. The opposite of this substance can be known, but has no power. It's power is the illusion that comes from the perception of those who choose to give it power. To defeat the illusion is to change the perception that it really exists. You are the Source, You are the Well. The substance is LOVE. The illusion is all that is not Love, such as fear, anger, hatred and the like. Thank you God once again for your Love, Words and Wisdom. But I feel there is more to share. Go on. I want to share what I know about Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT. What is stopping you? I'm not sure if this is the right place or time. Do you wish to help those in pain? Yes of course. Do you wish to show those with cancer how to rid themselves of it? YES! So what seems to be the hang up then? I must be thinking too much and not following my intuition. Maybe. Ok. I'll follow my divine guidance and remove my ego. Perfect. Thank you. This is not easy for me to do ya know. I know, but we all thank you for doing it. Ok, Ok. The technique is called EFT. It is a meridian based procedure that helps the body rid itself of negative energy that has been stored within our cells from the moment we were conceived. The negative emotions that we keep stored within our bodies, if not released can be a dominant factor in creating disease. We are what we think….literally. Good start….continue. …Unresolved emotional issues are stored in certain parts of the body depending on what is happening to us at the time. For instance, in my own experience I severely sprained my ankle on a job which I was forced to take due to my pending divorce. My negative emotions associated with the divorce (and there was many) were stored in my sprained ankle. My foot did not heal until after my divorce was final and all emotional worrying had stopped. Within two weeks my foot was completely healed. Hardly cancer I know, but the result is the same. Interesting….continue. Certain parts of the body are associated with different emotions. Negative emotions of feeling lack of love from a person you admire generally settle in the area of the heart or is associated with the blood. Negative emotions stored in the body from a mother figure generally lie in the breasts and so forth. The idea of using EFT to eliminate these emotional energy blocks has had wonderful results. Is that all? It is for now. I feel peace in what I have written. I welcome any feedback and am willing to talk to anyone about EFT and I am here for all of you. With love, Todd Michael Kjelland - Author "Words of the Angels" Hello Sylvie,

I found my way here through Michael’s blog. After reading your latest entry I chose to write in my own journal. I choose to share this with you and all that care to share in this journey.

Thank you for touching my life. The reasons I’m sure are yet to be experienced.

For getting the hell out of the way?

Ha ha ha. Yes in a manner of speaking. The hell that you speak about does need to get out of the way. To move aside for the truth of love to be present.

Ok. That makes sense. What am supposed to do with that?

Do as you are chosen to do.

Remind me, I need that reminder now and then.

Use the gifts that you have to spread the words of truth.

God, that sounds way too cliché’

I can rephrase it if you wish.

That would be great. Explain it in detail please. After all, I am only human.

So you think.

Huh?

SO YOU THINK.

Well, I am only human. I am a living, breathing mass of confusion.

No No No. What I mean is you are what you think. Do you think that you are only human? Do you think that you are confused? Todd, you are what you think.

Yes I get that….again. So what am I missing?

Sharing.

Yes…share your thoughts. Share your intuition. Share your insight. Share that which you are.

Yes, share all that you are. The gifts that you have are nothing until you manifest them by sharing them.

Are you telling me to once again get off my ass and spread the words we share?

Is that what you think?

That is what I am thinking right now.

Then you defy your thoughts.

Huh?

You heard me.

Yes, but what does that mean, “Defy my thoughts.”?

Todd, have you forgotten? If you are thinking about doing something, it is preventing you from acting on it. The very literal act of continually thinking about doing it…..

I’m not sure if this is the right place or time.

Yes of course.

YES!

Too often people only talk about the bright days and not the dark ones. You are doing a great service for so many - I know you feel the love. As the mother of three formerly teenage daughters (they all made it to their 30s unscathed and unbeaten by their mother by some miracle), let me assure you that your perspective and hers are different. What you see as a "failure" on your part, she will not even remember. Where we think we have scarred them for life, it's a passing item in their life. Plus, it gives them something to complain about with their friends. If you are perfect, she can't complain - and loses a lot of peer status. So you keep being you. And when she is a young mother, she will begin to appreciate all that you do - and that appreciation grows every day. Even now, she would love to let you "win" - but you understand, it's a matter of teenage pride! Loving thoughts to you and yours - Jeanette Sylvie

My thoughts and prayers are with you. As a cancer survivor myself I identify with all of the thoughts and emotions you are going through. I cannot express how much admiration I have for the way you have been dealing with this and getting it out in the open. I thought you might like a chuckle to help you get through this. Even in cancer there is humour. to begin with I was not the only member of my family to be afflicted with it. However, I did not have to go through chemotherapy to fight it. But my dear brother was diagnosed 15 years ago with melanoma and not only did they tell him his chances were poor of lasting another month, they suggested the option of aggressive chemotherapy. So me, being the loving sister that I was told him that I would cut off all my hair in solidarity and support when he started the chemo. It was down past my waist and to be truthful, it was gorgeous. Anyway, I had it cut and shaved off, donated it to Locks of Love and looked like a billiard ball for my brother. Now here comes the funny part. In all the rounds of chemotherapy my brother NEVER lost a hair on his head. In fact his moustache came in fuller and his straight hair became curly! So when we walked down the street together and bumped into people we knew, they asked into my health because I was the one that was hairless! We laughed about that until the day he died 15 years after the doctors said he wouldn't make it. So Sylvie, I will follow your progress and send positive energy your way. Take care, Bonnie Hi Sylvie.

The important thing is that you can only play one hole at a time; this is the only way to get through the game. Worrying about playing the whole course is a surefire way of mussing up. You know, you've got a growing band of friends who will be praying for you, one day at a time, as you fight to get better. I guess we're also praying for those who, like you, have had a life-altering diagnosis and are fighting to get well again.
