A woman was talking and I over heard her saying that her daughter was dying of cancer. I couldn’t help myself, I looked at her and said. “Stop iT! You are hurting yourself with the words that you are saying. You do not know that this is true.
Your daughter is “Living with cancer.” These are the words you need to put out to the universe. Can you feel the difference in your own boy when you say “My daughter is dying with cancer compared to when you say “My daughter is living with cancer?” She whole heartedly agreed that she could and she thanked me profusely
We have to watch the way we describe the things that are going on in our life and use words that work gently toward the goal we wish to see, rather than the same old way of doing things that we have been doing for years.
A close family friend continues to describe herself using terms like. “my cancer.” I’ve heard myself in the past say “My hurt knee.” Etc.
These are all huge no no’s. If you catch yourself saying something like this… STOP IT!!!
Keep In mind that the “Create Your Life” Classes start on Tuesday! I’d love to have you join us.
