CANCER - Support Care - Hypnotherapy ft. Lilly Body Mind Care
When we are diagnosed with cancer, our entire life is turned upside down. The announcement has the effect of an avalanche that sweeps with it all our beliefs and certainties in life. We are facing emptiness and death that seems to want to happen sooner than expected. We are submerged in fear. We're panicking. We ask ourselves a thousand questions... Why me? What have I done?
Our brain is boiling with emotions that are difficult to analyse in the first place.
Then comes the time of treatment, with all the complications it brings in our daily life.
I did not escape this ‘emotional soup’ when the news was announced. But that day I made a promise to myself: to live for the best the rest of my life.
I decided to use the disease as a support to find what was unbalanced within me, and to use the treatment as a bridge between my two lives: the one I was suffering from until the diagnosis and the one I will now create and become sovereign with.
But it can be difficult to know where to start. We're busy by exams, treatments and information about the disease. Our lives seem to escape us completely. Our bodies don't belong to us anymore, it belongs to the cancer and its whims. It belongs to the medicine and its side effects.
“Cool, Raoul”. Everything will be alright.
And it's through this storm of information and physical pain that I found, thanks to Hypnotherapy, week after week, a much-wanted relief. I found a tool that brings me back within myself a bit more every day. And this despite my daily routine. Despite my personal storm.
Aurélie Lilly from Body Mind Care has been following me since the beginning of my treatment. Together we went to meet my subconscious and my old demons. We went back to my oldest memories. To my deepest trauma and emotions related to these.
We have done a deep clean. An absolute reset of my life.
I understood through these sessions that I had created a wrong belief system about myself and life in general. I went through my personal hell and came back with a whole array of life lessons my subconscious showed me. We've released, memory after memory, every negative emotion associated with them, while leaving a feeling of gratitude for having lived these experiences. Wow. It feels so good to let go of all this. It feels good to understand that we have the keys inside us to overcome every challenge in life.
I would also like to talk about the benefits of hypnosis on my physical sensations.
Every session is a breath of oxygen to me.
No more pain session time. No more sickness.
I find myself in a corner of sweetness, visualizing what I like, which reassures me, makes me feel good. Time doesn’t exist anymore. I am, that is all.
Today I am still under treatment. My fight is not over. But I'm fine. I no longer fear. Because I have faith within me, and in medicine with its incredible progress in life. Sometimes I have moments of panic, sometimes I'm tired, sometimes I surrender, and that's okay. Deep down, I welcome all these emotions with kindness and end up calming myself down.
I wanted to testify to tell everyone who needs it, whether they are sick, or helpers going through a difficult time that no matter what there are solutions to get the ‘head out of the water’. To regain our sovereignty. Life is just a continuation of cycles, some more pleasant than others, and that they all deserve to exist and always for a good reason.
I invite you to discover the work of Aurelie, which, among other things, specializes in accompanying people with cancer. The work we do together is simply amazing. No other words to express my gratitude.
We do the remote sessions, via zoom.
Feel free to send her a private message if you would like more information.
And thank you to those who took the time to read this text.
I always loved writing. I remember writing some stories in my early childhood and I had a lot of imagination. I guess it is helping me now in my work as a hypnotherapist by using imagination to reach out the subconscious mind.
