Why am I the victim of cancer? Why did I get my cancer? What do beliefs have to do with my illness?

Question: It started with breast cancer and it went over to the bones and liver. I got chemotherapy and the blood tests have shown betterment in the past, but now it does not seem that I react. Why did I get it? I wonder whether this is the result of my life as a picture of a bad path. I went to a religious man and he said it was because of my evil ways of living, away from following the Godly path.

Answer: Let’s start with the spiritual why. During the years you have distanced yourself from your self, you decided to conform to your beliefs and repressed, suppressed your wishes as insufficient to do something about them. That is, you saw that your life was fairly good, and so, you let go of the very strong wish, the desire for a man’s love to you. On the outside you have done things correctly, yet it started a process of spiritual decay in the sense that you did not change what you wanted when physical reality presented you with a different picture, you only suppressed it. You thought of yourself as a ‘realistic’ person. Your  body did have the message of wanting, of reaching out, and that is exactly what the cells started doing. Your genetic tendency has then been activated when you buried your desire for couplehood and children under your beliefs and values.

    Let me start by saying that I hope this woman survived her cancer and is well and happy today, very sad disease to endure.
    Now my questions for you, Clara Szalai;
    What does Shet mean by saying that this woman’s cells started “wanting, reaching out” as a respond to her suppression? How can cells respond to an emotion? At what point do they respond? to what degree of an emotion do they respond to?
    P.S
    Cats Rule!

    As I understand it, we are speaking here of two languages: one, the emotional language, and the other, the cell’s “language.” Although different, one language can be translated into the other. The communication means of cells are complex chemical processes, they get messages from the whole body, life is an interactive complex process. Emotions too are translated into the chemical language, and in this session, SHET described it as “cells reaching out,” which is describing in a simple language the mutual interactions of emotions and chemical processes in the body. As an example, just think of depression – it can be said to be an emotional state, say, following the death of a beloved one, and yet, it creates, for example, a phenomenon that serotonin gets reabsorbed. On the other hand, this state of depression can be caused by the chemical problem in the body, so the emotional state can cause the the organism’s sickness and also vice versa, the physiological or chemical imbalance can create emotional states. Hope this answers your question. And yes, cats rule.
