Can Meditation Cure Cancer?

Meditation is a powerful preventive medical tool. It can facilitate healing and inspire a deep sense of well-being. In this article, you will learn four ways to use meditation for health and well-being. You will also read in-depth stories about how awareness and meditation heal a woman's cancer.

Let's start with this story of the miraculous healing of "Meditation: An Inner Guide" (Jeremy P. Tarcher / Penguin, 2011) by Ian Gawler and Paul Bedson.

Bernice cured his cancer

(p.274-278, MAIG)

In 1980, Bernice Groeke was diagnosed with melanoma in calves that had been removed by surgery. A year later, the doctor found melanoma in the lymph nodes in the thigh and removed it. A year and a half later, the cancer had spread to her lungs, where doctors said it couldn't be used. They say there is nothing they can do for her and she only has a few months to live.

Bernice decided to join a 12-week cancer self-help group. Shortly after joining the group, the discussion shifted to the effects of thinking about the handling of physical pain and mental-emotional suffering of cancer. Bernice never thought about her mind.

However, when the group discusses the power of positive thinking and thinking, Bernice quickly recognizes the negative nature of his mindset. In fact, he took it as his duty to look after and warn his family and friends of anything that might happen. On the other hand, he is also quick to warn himself and others not to get too excited about new possibilities as they may end up frustrated.

Bernice realized that his thinking was the definition of an "empty glass" approach to life. Therefore, after learning about the benefits of more positive thinking, he decided to change his mindset. To do this, he decides to reiterate "I'm a positive" whenever he admits to being negative.

About six weeks into her new consciousness and practice, she sat down with her husband after dinner when she had one of the most severe compressive melanomas on her spine. Her husband realizes her turmoil and asks what's wrong.

Bernice replied, "Maybe the doctor is right, maybe I'm just kidding myself. Maybe I should just accept the fact that I'm going to die and give up on everything else." (ms.275, MAIG)

Her husband sympathized with her pain and she was aware of her new confirmation practice. So instead of just being sympathetic, she replied, "Oh, that's interesting, how are you?"

"What do you mean, what am I?" answer it.

"Oh, I think you're a positive person now," he said.

Bernice pondered this and replied, "You're right, I am."

Bernice recalled that, as he said, he felt a shift in his body, as if the switch had been turned on. From that moment on, he can see the positive in every situation.

Shortly after this inner shift, he meditated and prayed in the church and had a deep mystical experience of the Presence of God where he understood the bible phrase "Be patient and know that I am God." From that moment on, his faith grew stronger. She found it easier to follow her healthy diet and her healing efforts with meditation. He was also enthusiastic about serving others.

Within six months, the scan revealed that her lungs were clear from all tumors. And, within a year, much to her surprise, doctors declared her cancer-free.

Shortly thereafter, Bernice competed to speak with a group of meditators at the Gawler Foundation who told her story. She shined with trembling as she spoke and her passion for her life was contagious. Bernice became an inspiring spiritual force.

A few years later, her husband died in his eighties. His friends and family wondered how Bernice would die. After all, they've been together for over sixty years.

Although she was sadly deserved and very sad, she was shocked at his endurance. She said, "Well, you know, it's really sad that Wine is dead and I'm going to miss it a lot, but it's going to be interesting ... I've never lived alone before. I wonder why I shouldn't take wine anymore?"

Shortly thereafter, to help with the expenses, Bernice took a student from overseas. They quickly became best friends. She taught him about life in Australia and he supported her financially and financially. It was a wonderful new chapter of his life.

Then, in 2009, at the age of 93, and 26 years after his cancer had disappeared — it reappeared. This time, he dropped quickly.

At first, he thought he was guilty. He goes to Gawler to express his disappointment in himself. Gawler quickly reminded him of his remarkable recovery. For over 26 years, he lived without cancer. He reminds us that we all die for something — and we don't always know why. He also reminded her of her beliefs.

Bernice admits that she was a little touched by her beliefs and now she has doubts and fears of dying.

Gawler encouraged him that doubt and fear were human emotions, especially in the face of death. He encourages them to recognize their doubts and fears consciously and accept them for what they naturally feel toward the unknown. He also suggested to Bernice that death was like "going home."

He reminded Bernice of his faith and encouraged him to imagine how he would be in the Divine Presence. She tells him that "death is easy, he has lived a good life, and he can look back on it with a soft and unmistakable satisfaction. To die, he just needs to breathe and not breathe again."

Supported by Gawler's words, Bernice was determined to focus on the Divine Presence and imagine himself joining it when the time came.

Bernice passed away less than a week later, peacefully. And, his funeral was a joyous celebration of his life. Family, friends, and a large crowd of people who have been touched by her smile service have come to celebrate what she meant to them.

What a wonderful story.

4 Ways to Meditate on Health and Healing

So, what can we learn from Bernice's story that can help us heal and become healthier?

1. Your thinking affects your ability to heal

As we saw with Bernice, his healing began with healing his normal, normal mind. He recognizes his habit of looking at life through negative lens and fear. He was always alert, alert, and wishing the worst. Before attending a cancer self-help group, he had no idea that this was a mindset, or that it was detrimental — he simply considered himself to be meticulous, responsible, and careful.

Bernice learned to change her mind by asserting, "I'm a positive person."

Now, having a positive mind is not about doing something or doing something better than it actually is. It's about recognizing the opportunities that exist in every situation. It's about seeing what you can do instead of focusing on what you can't do. It's about coming up with "what" and seeing what you can do to move things forward in a positive direction.

When you do this, you open yourself to a wider scope of possibilities and become more inspired to take positive action.

2. The choices you make are important

As you open yourself to the wider scope of possibilities, you realize that you can choose to take action that will make positive changes for yourself and others. Things are not "just like them," they are the result of several choices that combine to produce a certain result.

Meditation supports the state of seeing clearly where you can recognize choices and make good choices. Through meditation, you become more able to choose what works and to let go of what doesn't.

As Bernice opened the possibility of healing, he began to make different choices. She chose to say her positive confession to redefine her mindset. He has a healthy diet. She meditates daily. He increased his efforts to serve others. He expanded his community.

In time, these combined with other supernatural powers to create healing.

3. Meditation itself supports healing

One of the most important things you can do to facilitate healing — whether physical or mental — is to activate your body's natural relaxation response.

When you are in stress mode, are too busy, and are moving, your body blocks energy flow for higher digestive, immune, and thought processes. Your sympathetic nervous system directs all energy out and you lose your ability to absorb nutrients, repair your cells, and make good choices.

Our bodies are made for a replacement between periods of activity and rest. Most experienced side by side too much activity. We rush from one thing to the next and do not allow ourselves time to consciously process the events of the day. Then, we spend our sleep actively processing the life of our dreams. This prevents deep rest and recovery.

When you consciously relax, using tools such as meditation, you activate your parasympathetic nervous system, your natural recovery, and your recovery mode. This brings high capacity for digestion, immunity, and thinking online. You also begin to process and integrate today's events, and your life so far, so that you can let the past go and become more present with what you have.

For this reason, it is very important to consciously activate the Relaxation Response at least once a day using tools such as meditation for at least 10-20 minutes.

4. Meaningful imagery supports healing

Bernice had a strong faith in God. Therefore, he found it very useful and healing to imagine himself immersed in the Divine Presence. It's soothing and comforting. His faith also led him to take other healing actions, serve others, and build community.

When we only think about ourselves and our own suffering, it is easy to get caught up in the feeling of "Woe is me." Broaden your vision of realizing your Unity with a more inspiring and healing life. Health and healing occur naturally as a result of Universal Life-Force flowing strongly and seamlessly through your entire being. Meditation is a powerful way to properly recognize blocks for this flow, release them, and focus on this deeper Presence.

Enjoy your practice!
