It is clear that unless we ask questions or conduct our own research, options are then limited to the narrow spectrum of options presented to us. Discoveries being made by science especially in the areas of quantum physics and epigenetics; now present us with options for building new models and belief systems from which we can reshape our lives and our health. We must determine the value that we place on our own lives in order to begin to elude quick fixes and temporary healing options. We must garner the strength to say no when appropriate and to acknowledge that “all rights reserved” when it pertains to one’s being. Western medicine is especially guilty of being tunnel vision when presented with options outside of the prescribed establishment protocols. These are subliminal requirements for each of us to have an assigned doctor who ensures that we each follow a set of health protocols guaranteed to continue feeding big pharma, the medical establishment and corporate bank accounts.
The subtlety of this programming is so masked that it has us screaming for health care reform. We have been programmed to depend on the system to take care of us and to make decisions for us. People are in fear of what could happen if they do not have health insurance without giving thought to other possibilities for health maintenance and preventives. The media and advertising plays on their vulnerability and further amplifies this fear. There is much ancient science that is now considered cutting edge which are viable health options. However they do not receive the same kind of grants and funding and are not money pits, acting as Band-Aid. This financial drawback forces the system to denounce, demonize and create labels of quackery for methods outside of the pharmaceutical, medical and FDA prescribed options. Incorporating concepts of quantum physics or of the research done on belief systems and human emotions are not encouraged; and so the realization that the energy emitted from human emotions and its impact at the cellular level is largely ignored by Western medicine in resolving dis-ease.
Hippocrates quotes: (1) “It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” (2) “Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.”
The upcoming documentary The Business of Disease will examine not only what has been done but what can be done in moving along a path of self-reliance, self-responsibility and inner freedom.
COMMENTS ON THE ARTICLE
THE MARKETING OF BREAST CANCER
The Pink Ribbon Agenda
Below are just a few of the comments in response to the article The Marketing of Breast Cancer. These comments represent the voices of so many who silently feel this way. The exposure of these views are not about anger or about a rally for war. This is about owning ones power and becoming aware of the responsibility we have to ourselves in questioning those who seem to influence our choices.
We have options but without a vaster knowledge base our choices are then limited to as much as we allow ourselves to know.
“I read all of your amazing articles and am grateful for your work, I especially applaud this article, your time and courage in bringing this to others.”
“Thank goodness someone is addressing this issue with bravery, research, and factual support. I have long felt that the commoditization of disease is in direct opposition to the creation of a new planetary paradigm rooted in well-being at every level. Brava, Sonia! This is an extraordinarily powerful post that will help clear the way for continuing human evolution.”
“Wow, Sonia! Breast cancer is marketed to us everywhere, and you scratched the veneer to expose the fear underneath it all.
You have dived into an area that I intuitively know is true. This is an important, ground-breaking article. Don't listen to any backlash you may get on this -- it's just a culture of fear talking.
You can't fight against something to overcome it. I am healthy woman in her early 50s, whose mother died of breast cancer and my sister had a breast removed due to cancer when she was in her 30s. That puts me in the high risk category, and every time I get a check-up, it's like they're expecting to find it. If I didn't know better, I'd develop it just to meet the expectation.
Fortunately, I'm becoming conscious and take my health into my own hands. I've decided I have healthy breasts and a healthy femininity. I refuse to get the blood test to see if I'm prone. I now get a mammogram only once every two years, take good care of myself, exercise, eat right and don't worry about it.
Thank you for this article.”
“I had breast cancer and had a bilateral mascectomy due to fear of 2nd breast getting cancer. My point here is I had been, at the time, inundated (by those around me who did care &thought it necessary to prove that), with pink ribbon paraphernalia& suggestions of walking &volunteering for events to raise awareness. I struggled with the guilt of not wanting anything to do with this awareness stuff as I was being pulled by my spirit in another direction. But I didn't know that. All I knew was this awareness push didn't feel right. I was confused &I felt disloyal &guilty or wrong for cringing inside every time I heard or came in contact with or was presented with wars on, fights against and battles to cure &prevent Breast cancer.I actually have not been to a western dr in years&remain far away from this campaign.This message is so important for people to hear. It really made me feel validated from reading it. No I'm not a bad person for not marching in the fight. And all you mention explains everything one needs to understand. Thank you Sonia. Your efforts mean a lot.”
“Hear! Hear! Thank you Sonia for sharing this very complete and compelling article. When asked to support the pink ribbon campaign, I say "No thanks, we already have enough." - why would I support its proliferation?
One hundred years ago, Bernays, Freud's nephew discovered the power of mass hypnosis that has been developed and perfected as our unfiltered media inundation escalates. This BBC series is a must: The Century of the Self http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dA89CBBOC0
I have been increasingly suspicious of the escalation in cancers related to our sexual organs - prostate, ovarian, cervix. It seems to be in lock step with our increasing disassociation of our innate sexual natures - as you so well described in the mothering nurturing aspects of breasts over erotic sculptures.
Your point about women becoming disempowered in this most heinous manner is certainly consistent with history to repress the harmonizing of the male female energies for peace, healing and a truly global family. We as a culture have become more subtle than burning at the stake!”
Sonia, this is a brilliant article thank you so much! I feel like passing it on to everyone I know. My mother and grandmother had breast cancer and in the process of researching healing paths we discovered the ugly truth behind the cancer industry and it's fake 'we are trying to find a cure' motto. I can't handle those pink ribbons, and want to slap people who tell my sisters and I that we 'have to watch ourselves', as they are completely unaware of the emotional roots of any 'cancer' (and I so love that you clarified for people what this actually is and isn't) be they personal or ancestral roots.
If we want to promote awareness of anything it needs to be the truth of how and why we manifest dis-ease, where is the ribbon for that??! THANK YOU, it's like you wrote everything I want to say and so much more!!
