Food is very important to our health. I definitely don’t want to undermine the part that diet plays in our lives. But it’s also important not to be obsessive about what you eat. Let me take you back to the time before I had cancer. Before I got cancer I was absolutely obsessive about my health. I was the person who ate vegan food and would read all the labels. I insisted on organic and only ate non-GMO foods. I didn’t want to microwave my food or drink out of plastic bottles. I took wheatgrass shots. In terms of my diet, I was doing all the right things.

A lot of people think that by focusing on what brings us joy we’re simply avoiding all the big issues like pollution or starvation. However, my response to that is by worrying about all these huge problems in the world how are we helping? When you look at it that way you can see there’s really no point.

Over the last few months, I’ve experienced some massive shifts. The biggest one has been detachment. I’m less focused on rules and regimes and more about opting in to the best life possible by releasing attachment to anything that was restricting me from doing so. I’m not reverting back to being irresponsible and treating my body like a trashcan, but I’m learning more and more about the importance of looking after ourselves while having the best time ever. Not sacrificing one for the other.

When I was dealing with cancer I came across a lot of healers. In my mind it’s very clear as to what distinguishes a great healer from a good healer. A great healer empowers you. A not-so-great healer disempowers you. What I mean by that is that for a healer to really be great, they must empower you to realise that the power of healing is within you. A great healer should help you understand that you have you have the power and ability to heal. They are just a channel, a bridge to take you from where you are to where you want to be. But the healing is yours.

Loving Yourself Before All The Rest

How could I have said something so stupid? That was so dumb of me! I should have known better! I will never get it right! Why am I even bothering to try? Does any of this sound familiar to you? That was my inner voice, several years ago. That was the voice in my head, constantly nagging and putting me down. Wishing I was better, smarter, stronger, more spiritual. Wishing I was anyone but who I am. The most meaningful lesson I learned from being at death’s door is that unless I love myself, nothing else in my life can function at its best.

When was the last time you did absolutely nothing? I’m not talking about the “nothing” that is polluted by Facebook stalking, Instagram scrolling, TV watching or any other tech distraction. I’m talking about pure nothing. Being in the moment and being content with nothing besides your own, undivided attention. No goals, no distractions, no doing anything what-so-ever.

Have fitspo images ever made you feel like crap? I’m totally guilty of inflicting these feelings of inadequacy onto myself. At the start of last year I set an intention to move my body every single day. It would have been a wonderful intention, if the real motivation behind it hadn’t been to sculpt my body into the Victoria’s Secret model shape I was stalking on Instagram.

I said that I’m working with two integrative doctors, a naturopath who specialises in cancer, and a medical intuitive. Out of everyone, we received the most enquiries about who my medical intuitive is and what kind of work we do together. Well, today you will get to meet her and find out exactly how she helps me in my healing process.

What does it mean to do the work?

I was at dinner recently with a male friend of mine. We were talking about patterns of emotional behaviour that kept showing up in his romantic relationships, and how they were derailing him completely. “You’re doing the work”, I told him. “You just have to keep moving through the process, uncovering the layers until you get to the bottom. That’s where the gold is”.
