With Cindy Lindsay Rael
One in nine women in the US have had breast cancer in their life time. I would not have known that statistic, until I got the diagnosis of breast cancer too. I want to talk about it in this episode and in a series of episodes as I move through. There is a journey of the soul in every illness. Let's travel it together.

I recently found out that 1 in 9 women will experience some kind of breast cancer in their lifetime. It is an astounding statistic. Not one I would have even known until breast cancer came into my life. I am going to talk about it. I have breast cancer. I am lucky because I had a dream and the voice told me to check my breast. I woke up immediately after that dream and checked my breast. There was a big lump there. First, I thought, “that is ok, I will get it checked. Probably no big deal.”
But then a biopsy, and breast cancer diagnosis. Then, we found it's more complex than we thought, you need a mastectomy with a lymph node removal.
It is very terrifying to think you are just fine one day and find out the next day you are not. I have had many clients who are in this situation where they just find out these horrifying things about their own lives and where their lives are headed. And then there is all the difficulties of doctors, finances, pain, appointments, and life struggles that come with such a diagnosis.
I count it as a blessing that I can go through it myself. To know it at an even deeper level. To really see what it takes internally to face it, to move through it, and to face its consequences.
So that is what I am going to do. And I am going to talk about it. Because it is a crying shame that we do not know so many women go through this. It is a crime against the feminine that we are not hands together wondering why 1 in 9 women has breast cancer and so many of the other negativities women must go through.
So, in the next weeks, I will talk here and share some reflections. I hope to have it be talked about and have it be of some help for someone else.
But for today the first things is: nurture yourselves and love yourself enough to do a regular breast examination. And follow whatever are the recommendations for your age and health for medical examination of your breasts.
I was not doing this. I was not paying any attention. I am lucky that my divine connections woke me up to this breast cancer.
Second, I know that this is a process of the soul. Yes, it is a process of the breast, the body, and the illusion of doctors, confusing information and difficulties of decisions and life changes. But ultimately it is a process of the soul. We have to become clear about that fact. Because as much as everyone should go for whatever treatments they think are correct and are suggested by reasonable practitioners, it is the soul that is seeking something in any illness.
The soul is seeking to unburden itself of old karmas. The soul is seeking to advance. The soul is seeking to change your life in some way. When we become clear what that change is that our soul wants and how to release those karmas, healing is there.
I don’t just mean you recover and all is fine. Of course, I hope for that. But I mean the true reason this came to you can be seen, known, resolved, and the highest possible outcomes for your soul received.
One of my dear friends died of rectal cancer a few years ago. She sought every medical treatment and even went to see my teacher Sri Kaleshwar. But when he asked her what she wanted. Her response was not “heal my cancer”. Even though she was lying there on a bed unable to sit up to even answer the question. No. Her response was: “do what is greatest for my soul.”
I was there attending the healing. That was her strength, her beauty, her intense understanding that this had come to her for a reason. I so admire her response. She did die from that cancer. But I was also there the last moments of her life in which she believed. She was radiant in the light that had come to her from going through this at the level of her soul. I even saw in those last moments the Maha Avatar, Babajii, come to greet her as she left her body.
I think I am going to survive this and live for a long time. I think the divine saved me because I have more work to do on the planet still. But I also believe that part of that work is to speak about this soul challenge. Not just for me, but for my dear friend. And for all the women and all the people who are meeting some illness or difficulty in their lives, or loss of a loved one, and need to be able to find the meaning of the soul—the plan of the soul has in all that difficulty.
So, in the weeks and days to come, I will be talking. I hope you will be listening. I wish you all the highest possibilities for your soul.
