It has been many months since I attempted to send any kind of blog or message to you and the whole group. If you have been a member of the Colin’s Wellness Journal Facebook group, you will have been receiving periodic updates on my cancering journey and will understand why I have focused all my communication efforts in this direction for the last couple of years.
For those of you who haven’t been following it, here is the short version. I was originally diagnosed with rectal cancer in May 2015. Using a combination of allopathic and alternative methods of healing, it was gone by November of the same year. However, it re-occurred in May of 2017 but with more serious complications.
I went in for surgery on May 15th to remove the tumor, but given the proximity to bones, it was not possible to remove it without leaving cancer cells behind, so the attempt was abandoned. Chemo was said to be the only option.
The Universe disagreed. Immediately after leaving the hospital information came my way about a technology that uses very high pulse pressure ultra-sound to destroy cancer cells with zero side effects or damage to ordinary cells. I read up on all the research and am seeing it as the best option for me. The machine is available in England, so I aim to get there within a week or so for the treatment. It looks very promising and an infinitely better option than chemo.
There is nothing like a life-threatening experience like a cancer diagnosis to make you think about your life and your future and what changes you might need to take – no matter if you are moving in the direction of imminent death or not. And who knows?
I have always said that cancer comes to us as a loving message from our Higher Self that invites us to change something in our life. It is always a healing message in that sense. What I have re-discovered during this year and what I have always taught is that the message is a mixture of forgiveness, surrender, and acceptance of what is – as is.
However, it has become very clear to me that as well as making personal changes in my life as a result of my cancer experience, I am, at the ripe old age of 76, at a major turning point in my professional life, as well. I’m not at all sure what that really means and how it will all shake out, but I am looking at a couple of options.
I could either retire completely and do something else with my life. Or I could continue doing Radical Forgiveness but in a different way.
I am an artist and have neglected this side of me for many years. I could definitely see myself taking up painting in a serious way as an alternative to being the prime mover behind Radical Forgiveness.
I have enough trained people around the world who could easily take on that mantle in a number of different countries, so the work would continue even if I was not personally involved. This will, anyway, be the case once I have left the planet, so I am already thinking about who those people might be and how that transition might be made.
I am also considering selling Global 13 Publications, Inc. This company covers all the digital products that we sell, including all the training programs, online programs and all things downloadable that do not require anything other than a website.
All those programs are now on automatic, thanks to the skill of Shari Claire, requiring very little in the way of administrative effort to service the distribution. Whoever buys it will take on the marketing aspect, something we have not had much in the way of expertise in.
These programs, including the professional training courses, will still be available to you in exactly the same way so there would be no downside to you. But it would give JoAnn and I some financial security to make up for me stopping doing workshops and traveling around the world trying to make a living for us both. (Bear in mind she is 10 years younger than me.)
If you know of anyone who might be interested in acquiring this company and putting some serious money into marketing the digital products because they believe in Radical Forgiveness, (most important), do let me know. But just to be clear, based on some valuations we have received, we would not be considering offers much below $500,000.
The alternative to actually retiring is to work differently and in a way that supports JoAnn and me physically, emotionally and spiritually. That is likely to mean doing fewer workshops while offering virtual events such as Group Coaching; Couples Coaching; Group VIP Days; Mastermind Groups; Online Courses and so on – all online. That way we can do more or less everything from our home.
But that’s for the future. First, I have to focus all my attention on restoring myself to full health and would ask you to keep sending my healing thoughts to that end. You have no idea how much I appreciate your love and support.
