[This is a replication of the session Michael Speaks: Cancer]
Hello to each of you. We are here, now.
Today we are asked to speak on the subject of cancer.
We will begin by clarifying that our perception is not one of a practical and local doctor, and our information shared here is to be considered along with any acute perceptions within the Physical Plane that may prove helpful in navigating and understanding cancer.
What we will address today is the broader phenomenon of cancer, and not the variations of named cancers. The types of cancers known are usually indicative of starting points, but all cancer is fairly similar in dynamic.
Cancer is considered a disease because of its impact on the body and its seeming effect of turning against the host in a way that is lethal.
However, cancer is grossly misunderstood as being only a disease, when it is, in fact, a defense.
Cancer is understood as shortening the life or causing the death, and this is true to some extent, but it is the body's overcompensatory method of extending life.
It may seem contradictory because of the prognosis for many cancers, but the cancer, ironically, does more to extend the life than it does to end it.
Cancer is a response to extreme trauma in the body.
This trauma comes in 3 primary forms: practical carcinogens, stress, and diet.
Practical carcinogens are those known (and unknown) environmental elements that cause trauma in the body in a way that prompts cancerous growth.
This would include such things as certain chemicals, pollutions, radiation, etc.
These are causes in many cases, but more often than not they are triggers for activation of cancer that was long in the works before that trigger.
This is why one smoker can develop cancer while another does not.
In cases where the carcinogen is a "true cause," then the ratio of activation of cancer is fairly predictable. In other cases these carcinogens are merely triggers for activation of cancer more directly caused by the other two forms of trauma.
Though it could be said that stress and diet fall under the umbrella of "carcinogen" in many ways, we differentiate these from the practical carcinogens because they are often far more insidious and accepted, though there is an argument that could say the same for pollutions and toxins in the environment.
However one might navigate the world of toxic waste and pollution, it is much more difficult to note the degree of trauma one is causing from stress and diet. In other words, you can live as healthy as you can, live in the best of environments and close to nature, but if your diet and stress is not addressed, you are at risk for cancer.
Along with higher exposure to practical carcinogens, the higher and more chronic the stress, and the more empty of nutrition the diet, the ratio for cancers increase in that population.
Chronic stress and chronic intake of unhealthy foods traumatize the body in ways that are only very minimally understood.
We know there is information that speaks to these concepts in terms of choice for health, but they are far more serious than that.
They are at the core of what, eventually, kicks the body into an instinctive survival mode that resorts to cancer as its last effort to survive.
By "chronic stress" we include self-condemnation , worry, anxiety, self-loathing, hatred, distrust, resentment, denial, delusion, depression, etc.
By "chronic stress" we mean that these and similar states are upheld for more than half of your waking state, consciously or subconsciously.
This kind of stress destroys the defenses of the bodies.
We include the emotional, intellectual, and physical bodies here.
We wish to make it very clear that one is not to blame for one's cancer if one has developed it. There is no relevance to blame. If a person were so upset that as he walked he tripped into traffic and was hit by a car, it would be useless to blame him or the car. It is the intersection of two completely separate trajectories that simply must now be dealt with.
It is the same with cancer. The trajectory of stress meets with the trajectory of survival.
The body wants to live. It is designed to survive. All auto-immune deficiencies, in fact, are efforts to survive, not to turn on the body.
There is nothing that body does in any biological sense that is not for the intention to survive. Even aging is included in this, and worth considering discussing at some point as a topic.
Stress as a cumulative trauma to the body destroys the defenses over time and cancer can develop as a final effort to survive without those defenses.
Diet is the brother to stress, so to speak, and both go hand-in-hand in many ways.
The more nutritionally-void the diet, the more likely the consequences can be cancer. The more toxic the diet, the more likely the consequences can be cancer. There is validity to the phrase "eat to live, rather than live to eat."
Most modern cultures are lacking in two vital forms of education: how to eat, and how to manage resources. In fact, most are inculcated with diametrically opposed education that diminishes the life force.
When the diet is doing more harm than health over time, and there is chronic stress in some form, both of which can be upheld with a great smile and a happy life, can result in cancer.
All of this ties back to the Need of Expansion.
The relationship of a culture to the Need of Expansion can reveal how at risk a society is for cancer.
For many, Expansion is superficially fulfilled.
Stimulation, distraction, hoarding, territorialism, etc.
These are not the problem. They are part of the spectrum of Expansion.
The problem comes in when this Need is not fulfilled to any degree beyond the 3rd Degree.
For review, the degrees of expansion are: 1) Physical Tumors/Cancer, 2) Accumulation, 3) Sprawl/Territorial, 4) Conceptual Challenge, 5) Emotional Growth/Maturity, 6) Transformation/Transmutation, and 7) True Prosperity/Gratitude.
Every known "cause" of cancer comes from this effort to fulfill the Need of Expansion.
From the practical carcinogens of waste and toxins to self-loathing to unconscious eating habits that have no concern for consequences.
Expansion is a Need that is often neglected, ignored, shamed, or overcompensated for.
Models for those who fulfill Expansion have rarely been of help for education and understanding of this Need.
What tends to happen then is the cumulative effects of false Expansion until there is collapse under the weight.
And cancer forms.
We wish to point out that we speak in broad terms today. We cannot speak to the variations on cancer and the individual or culture and their specific patterns, but we think this overview can be useful.
What we speak of today is not to encourage a rise of Expansion to the top of your list for consideration as priority, but that it be included in your spectrum of Needs that you will seek to fulfill, whether you realize it or not.
To help simplify the aim away from cancer and toward a true fulfillment of Expansion is to aim toward True Prosperity and Gratitude.
True Prosperity is a management of resources in a way that does not dismiss them simply because you could have more or that you need more.
Gratitude is the means by which one sustains fuel for enthusiasm and effort.
For the older soul, Expansion is the Need to BE HERE. It is that simple.
Yes, it is also the Need to grow, expand, evolve, etc, but this is most easily understood in the most intimate of terms when described as your need to BE HERE.
You want to be here.
You are here.
This Need need not be only fulfilled by reaching false standards set by marketing, or reached through the consuming of foods simply because you can, or through the constant berating of yourself for not being more.
If you choose to do so, take the next step upward in the rung of Expansion and challenge your thinking, challenge your notions, challenge your patterns of perception, challenge your habits, challenge your ideas and concepts. Reach beyond those handed down to you and build your infrastructure from active and conscious choice.
There will always be risks in the Physical Plane around scathing, harm, and health, no matter what you do, but what you do does matter.
This is especially true if already diagnosed with cancer.
It is not just a biological reaction to help extend the life. It is an effort to overhaul the entire spectrum of bodies.
There are very few who are diagnosed with cancer who are not thrown into a completely new effort to climb the rungs of Expansion toward Gratitude.
For most who are diagnosed and move into remission or complete elimination of cancer, it is rarely due to treatments and remedies and far more to do with that successful overhaul. Treatments and remedies support that process, but cannot replace it.
Many forms can be "cut out" or "cut down," but the risk of return is much higher if that overhaul is not completed.
Sometimes there is a point of no return, but that overhaul is still vital for how the life will transition into Review.
This was a particularly uncomfortable topic for our channel and we will close the discussion today without questions and answers. If there is interest, we can continue our conversation with you on this topic in further exchanges. We must conclude here for today, however.
Good evening to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
