From the moment of my trip through the tunnel during an unsuccessful operation which had been intended to remove the tumour (I wrote an article about it at http://www.healer.ch/Tunnelarticle.html) I was opened to a new realm of experiences in areas that had never attracted me before. I had never before seen myself as a spiritual being in a physical body, and I had never before really realised the importance of being happy, nor the terrible physical effects of being unhappy. This opened my eyes. What/who was the source of your knowledge? Could you share a little about your journey?The tumour was in my spinal cord, I was told, between C4 and C7. After the operation, I was told that they could not reach the tumour, nor could they use radiation therapy or chemotherapy. I was given a month or two to live unless I coughed or sneezed, in which case I could die immediately. My right arm had been paralyzed, my legs were spastic. There were sensations like electric shocks running up and down my spine and out to my fingertips and toes. Eight months later, I was celebrating still being alive. I was in Club Med in Martinique, and I met a man teaching Zen meditation there. He told me, ‘Cancer begins in your mind, and that’s where you can go to get rid of it.’ I understood at that time that the cancer was the result of the stress of the lifestyle I had lived. I also realised I would have to change my life. The message talked deeply to me because I always had faith in my strong mind. Some weeks later, I went to hear an introductory talk of the Silva Method, which teaches how to use your mind as a tool, going to alpha states and using deep relaxation, affirmations, visualisation, and re-programming of beliefs. I decided to use the tools. I worked on myself for two months, using autosuggestion, going to alpha three times each day and talking to myself in a positive way, and visualising what would happen in the doctor’s office when I would be examined again. The doctor would scratch his head and say, ‘Perhaps we made a mistake, because there’s nothing there now.’ I imagined the tumour getting a bit smaller each day. Two months after I began to work with myself, it was the one-year anniversary of the operation, and I went back to the doctors to be re-examined. The doctor scratched his head and said, ‘Maybe we made a mistake, because there is nothing there now.’ I knew I was living a scene I had created. During the two months of inner work I had also done a lot of research into various esoteric philosophies and Eastern traditions. The first exposure I had to the concept of chakras was through Ken Keyes’ book, The Handbook to Higher Consciousness. Other sources included various kinds of yoga-associated chakras with various parts of the body, endocrine glands, nerve groups, etc. It seemed a logical conclusion to associate specific symptoms to specific chakras, and therefore to tensions in specific parts of the consciousness, with the idea that everything begins in the consciousness. My initial research was intended to find information on my particular case – and after my healing, people were asking me to heal them – so I had many more examples to look at regarding the body-mind relationship and the inner causes to physical symptoms – and I got involved in functioning as a healer, and exploring healing as a co-creation – the effects of an interaction between two creators. How open are people to accepting this approach of self-healing? Are the acceptance levels increasing? It seems to me that acceptance levels have always been high, since I began teaching these me
