When many people find out that they are suffering from cancer, they regard it as a death sentence. Whilst depression is understandable, giving up should not be an option. Because the more positive and upbeat you are then the more likely you are to survive cancer. One of the first things that you have to do is reconcile your hopes and dreams with your subconscious.

Work out what it is that you want from your treatment and whether it is realistic to achieve whatever you want, then use your medical team to assist in those goals. There is never a single way to approach anything in life and this is as true for curing cancer as anything else. There are many paths that you can take, it may meander there or climb a mountain metaphorically. What is important to remember is the fact that it is your goal and your path, now is not the time to fulfill someone else dream.

You need to create a plan and take specific steps and actions to get you from where you are now to where you ultimately want to be. It is important to focus on the how rather than the outer goal. For instance you may decide that you want to be a five year cancer survivor, but the important thing is how you are going to achieve that objective. If necessary make room in your life for new objectives, get rid of any extra baggage, now is the time to focus on yourself. That does not mean push your family away or ignore them, but it does mean saying no to things that you do not want to do. Women find saying no especially difficult, but somehow you have to find a way and reconcile your self conscious desires and your actions.

From a psychological point of view that reconciliation is important. When we deny ourselves what we really want to do, we create tension between out conscious desires and our subconscious desires. Your mind power and your subconscious mind work together and they fashion your reality. Let’s use a parallel to help you visualize how this works. Your subconscious mind is the part of your mind that you are not aware of your thoughts, but if you ignore it, it can create tensions in our lives known as Freudian slips. Which means the subconscious has a way of telling us what we really want? On a conscious level we may want to be kind and understanding, but we can be petty and mean.

Our subconscious is rather like a fertile soil any seed at all can take root. These seeds are your habitual thoughts and the things that you believe in and eventually they will grow to produce a crop. So if you plant weeds then you will get weeds in abundance and if you plant fruit tress then you will get masses of fruit. Our conscious mind that deals with all our conscious thoughts is the cultivator; it can grow anything in the subconscious.

Our conscious mind can impart a sense of failure or a mindset that we cannot fail at anything. It will not allow ourselves to be distracted in whatever our subconscious wants. Our subconscious can not hold success and failure at the same time, because our subconscious cannot be ambivalent, it wants one thing and one thing only. It is our conscious mind that is ambivalent. Make sure that your conscious and unconscious mind both want the same things, there is no room for doubt.
