You’re reading this because I have moved into the transition from life to death. My amazing marketing strategist and friend, Jessica Norman, has agreed to publish this open letter.
For my followers, I sincerely thank you and appreciate your many encouraging comments throughout my cancer journey starting in 2018. You may not know it, but those comments often made my day many times over. I devour positive feedback. Yet as you know, I have had some naysayers exclaiming I was over exaggerating my condition and promoting lies that my way of eating was a healthy diet. Transparency has been my intention throughout this entire journey. I hope you can learn from my experiences and apply it to your own health and wellness.
My Cancer Journey is a Gift from God
After my diagnosis of incurable bone marrow cancer, I had the opportunity to learn and experience many lessons. I learned empathy, forgiveness, and the power of love and making memories. I also learned how to muster the power to meet a challenge head-on and overcome a dire prognosis of 3-6 months to live.
Everyone has read my story if they have followed my Blogs. I’ve lived a life of quality on my terms. Of course, there have been several severe setbacks for a variety of reasons. But I have climbed out of my abyss of depression each time and have moved onto thriving again and again.
The way I see it, I’ve negotiated “bonus time”. If I had done the conventional treatment, I wouldn’t have had these bonus years. I listened to my body and gave it what it needed to fight this cancer. Because of this, I was able to thrive. That time allowed me to connect with all of you, as well as spend precious time with my family and friends.
From day one of my journey, I decided to be completely transparent about what was working for me and what was not working. My desire was to share thoughts, experiences, and protocols that most people with serious medical diagnoses could never find. I wanted to provide the information and resources that many medical doctors don’t share with their patients or don’t even know themselves. I have maintained that our body is designed to heal itself if it is given what is vitally needs and if everything that could be toxic in any way is avoided.
Our “moment of life’s transition” is when our soul leaves our body at death.
This is a topic most societies shun.
In the medical profession, we do almost everything to stay alive and keep our patients alive. We engage our patients to take care of themselves and teach a myriad of proactive steps to wellness. All this is done to be the best we can be as we pursue our journey here on earth.
But all of us come to the end of our story. All of us must die. But how do we prepare for death? How do we make dying as beautiful as our years of living? How do our loved ones adjust? What happens after we die?
Preparation for death is the ultimate moment that gets almost no attention but is experienced by everyone at some point in time. Death must be a topic that is discussed openly and candidly before a person dies. Rarely is this done in our society today.
I shared a blog a while back with a personal story about my dad. You can read it in its entirety HERE, but the biggest takeaway is how to approach the transition from life to death. It’s something worth talking about and sharing with your loved ones. My dad’s situation was very different than mine. I feel fortunate to have shared this time with my family, friends, and all of you.
My Concluding Thoughts
I embrace death and dying as the beautiful end to one’s life journey.
We come into this world alone, and we leave this world all alone. It’s not sad. It’s just the way it is. But the time spent in between these events defines us.
For the most part, we cannot determine how and when we will die. But we can control how we live. At any point in our life, we can make changes to improve our situation physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We can make lasting memories. We can affect many people by our actions. Material things come and go. Yet, the intangible and beautiful things in life are what really matters. Don’t give up no matter where you are in life. I am a perfect example of not giving up.
Eventually, the way we live our life and eventually prepare for death add up to the culmination of the amazing paths we travel. When the time is right, it is critically important for all of us to discuss death with our loved ones. We must express our fears, desires, and love that surround this normal passage of life into the spirit world.
What comes after death is the subject of many esoteric writings and research.
I believe that we are more than our physical body. After physical death, our soul exits our body. After that moment, we are not alone. I believe we are reunited with many souls that have been our guides and companions for eons. We enter our real home in the spirit world. This is where I am going, or this is where I am as you read this. It’s as natural as anything you can imagine.
I share my thoughts about what to expect after death in Death – Preparing for the Transition. It was therapeutic for me to research and write this paper You may find this information helps you prepare for your life’s transition. It also might help others prepare for their life’s transition as well as help caregivers assist with a loved one’s transition.
My Wish For You
Take my learnings to heart. You don’t have to eat exactly like I did or follow my Unconventional Cancer Protocols to a tee. But know that many of us WILL get sick. Our loved ones will get sick. But you’re not helpless. There are so many things you can do, even when the outlook is grim. Take it from me, not only did I outlive my prognosis, but I was also able to thrive during that time!
Pay attention to your gut health. Make dental health a priority. Eliminate things that you know are bad for you, even if the FDA allows them to remain in our lives or not.
Making these changes to your daily life will help empower you to retain your good health for as long as possible. And take it from me, your health is the most priceless form of wealth.
