My cancer marker (CA 27.29) went down for the third month in a row. In fact, it went down more than twice as much as it did last month. It is now 173.7.

Even though there are many factors that could be influencing this that I have written about before, I think the “work” that I am doing daily is making a difference. I know it is making a difference in how I feel emotionally.

I am mentally rehearsing how I will feel when I get test results demonstrating that my cancer is diminishing. By consciously marrying my thoughts and intentions with an emotion, I am bathing my body “in the neurochemistry that would be present if that future event were actually happening.”

The quotes here are from Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book, You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter. In this book, he describes in great detail the science behind how one’s thoughts and feelings affect what happens in the body. It’s convincing and exciting. I’ll quote one more paragraph:

“When you’re truly focused on an intention for some future outcome, if you can make inner thought more real than the outer environment during the process, the brain won’t know the difference between the two. Then your body, as the unconscious mind, will begin to experience the new future event in the present moment. You’ll signal new genes, in new ways, to prepare for this imagined future event.”

I’m feeling gratitude and appreciation.
