Last week, I started the first part of this article, on whether there is such a thing as a cancer personality. This week, I invite you to follow me in discovering if  


An important predictor of illness is the way in which individuals cope with traumatic experiences. 

What do successful people from all disciplines have in common? Are there traits and talents that they exhibit that leads to their success and good health? Research indicates that they do have such traits.

For instance, they all have high self-expectations and a strong belief in themselves. They are visionaries, whether their vision is to win an Olympic gold medal or create a corporation. The belief in what they are setting out to accomplish is clear and unwavering. I have noticed that when it comes to their health challenges, they approach them with the same commitment. Belief and trust in themselves is reflected in the discipline and effectiveness of their healing approaches.

One trait they all have in common is present-time orientation. They live in the present. This releases their mind from all concerns except the one they are facing at that moment. Approaching a specific event without the clutter of background chatter creates a positive and pragmatic mood. They face their health diagnostic with complete focus.

They have a sense of belonging and connection to other people. Social support may be the critical elements distinguishing those who remain healthy from those who become ill. Social support helps to prevent illness by maintaining a mental and physical equilibrium and thereby protecting the immune system. Positive associations, such as a supportive community and close friends and family, have been linked to better health, lower incidence of cancer, reduced risk and incidence of heart disease, and fewer and shorter hospital stays.

A study done in Kyoto, Japan, centered on a small group of survivors from cancers usually considered incurable. The patients all told a similar story. Their reaction to the diagnosis was one of sincere gratitude for whatever life they might have remaining. The patient chose to reinterpret their crises to resolve the issues that led up to them. They were challenged by, and accepted responsibility for their situations. They completely and sincerely committed themselves to the will of God.

The key factor to sustained health in people who are healed is finding a deeper meaning to one’s life, a sense of higher purpose or spiritual values. What inspires some people to make extraordinary decisions requiring great courage at a time of a personal health crisis? Somehow, a crisis puts some people in touch with a deep inner resource, which in turn empowers them to do more with their lives. 

They are people who are able to express themselves fully, they know who they are, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and how to fully display their strengths and compensate for their weaknesses.  They also know what they want, and how to communicate what they want to others, in order to gain their cooperation and support. And they know how to achieve their goals.  They know the importance of a belief system

Norman Cousins, a survivor of cancer, and author of “Anatomy of an Illness”  had a confidence that he could determine his life’s direction and successfully overcome challenges as an adult. He had a sense of certainty.

An individual’s reaction to a traumatic event is usually more significant than the event itself. They experience a sense of their ability to control or exert a profound influence over the course and direction of their lives, setting their journey toward personal and professional success in motion.

There are 4 common characteristics among resilient people:

1.      An active, evocative approach to solving life’s problems and challenges,

2.      A tendency to perceive their experiences constructively despite their pain and suffering,

3.      An ability from infancy to gain other people’s positive attention

4.       And a strong faith or set of spiritual values as the basis for a vision of a meaningful life.  

They manage to believe that life makes sense, that they have some control over their fate. This enables them to love despite hate, and to maintain the ability to behave compassionately toward other people.  They have a confidence that things will work out as well as can reasonably be expected and this confidence contributes to their individual belief that he or she can influence the outcome positively. 

They have the ability to transcend their short-term trauma by developing a positive attitude about the experience or its long-term consequences.  They undergo a profound change in their outlook on life.  Instead of a dramatic experience causing a breakdown, it brings forth a breakthrough to a new and deeper appreciation of themselves and others.   There is a new born self that comes out of crisis or disease but that experience of renewal can also be self-generated by a decision to transform your life.

They choose to believe that they can win over cancer, and immediately start taking control of their life, rather than submitting to the doctor’s orders.People who are generally happy are generally well. Illness doesn’t cause unhappiness any more than unhappiness causes illnesses.

Unhappiness and illnesses are states of minds, reactions to events, and are at once mutually supportive, mutually antagonistic and constantly changing.

Health is not an end. It is a means.

Dr Magne claims there IS a cure for cancer, and it is much simpler and cheaper than the pharmaceuticals and the doctors would have you think. In her new book, she asks the questions that others fear to ask. People who are the frontier of scientific thought are people ask good questions. They ask: “What if?” Every good question deserves an honest answer. That stands even if the answer is heretical, if it isn’t what people want to hear, whether it destroys the world view or the accepted standards, and even if it isn’t a good career move. He who wants answers will have to ask questions.

Dr Magne asks many such questions. She wants to know why the word CURE is only the property of the medical profession, and why alternative therapists and known effective treatments for cancer and other diseases with a terminal diagnostic cannot use the word ‘cure”? And she asks who really does the curing and the healing in therapy.

What would have happened if Descartes had never been forced by the Pope to separate the mind and the body in his scientific research? Have we lost 300 years, and is it too late for us to remember how to heal our bodies?

My expertise in the field, years of research after a traumatic skydiving accident where I suffered a crushed wrist, a broken back and a cracked vertebrae. I found a method to overcome the pain of post-op that hospital staff refused to ddress. I spent the next 30 years finding out how I had found bliss and silence from the pain. It is the same way that people who suffer from cancer, leukemia, arthritis and many other diseases use to put their disease ‘in remission’ and beat all the doctors’ prognostics.

Statistics showed in the US that when hospitals were on strike, patients had a lower death rate. Do we have any alternative to the drug industry that is more interested in its profit line than in healing patients?

We are constantly exchanging the atoms in our body with our environment. Our body is completely rebuilt within 12 months. Yet we remain the same. How? And why? Who monitors that process? Can we influence that process? Has this ever been done?

We’re told that we use only 5% of our brain capacity, what is the rest for? This book asks all these questions and looks at the answers that are available.

Most of us have gotten sick at one stage or another. I ask where disease comes from, and what purpose it serves in the body. I look at the implications of the body trying to communicate with us. The idea that we create our disease and the form it takes leads to the conclusion that we are then able to control our disease and stop it from re-occurring.
The body talks in metaphors. What exactly what is it saying? Is it possible that the body is literal, and that the pain one feels in the neck has to do with someone being a pain the neck in your life?

We are what we think. Our body responds to the quality of our thoughts and we can be the creator of our diseases when we lose control of our minds and our thoughts. I show examples of disease reversal by changing the thoughts we hold about ourselves and the world. We interpret the world according to our values and beliefs, depending on what we choose to retain from the 2 million bits of information that hit us every second.

We can only process or accommodate 200 of those bits. The power of our beliefs and values also create and reinforce our tendency toward particular diseases. Our reality is completely created in the mind. We’re making it all up. The world we live in is completely made up in our mind by each of us. I give numerous explanations and examples. And I would like to know if we can rebuild the world the way we want it? Are we really at the cause of our disease? And if that’s the case, how about accidents? Do we create those too?

We really don’t know or understand anything about our world, and the field of quantum physics is demonstrating in the most bizarre of experiments which have outrageous and documented results, that we live in a soup of infinite possibilities, and our thinking and decision-making process create our world as we go. If we can control our universe, the question is posed that past saints and healers must have understood the world of quantum physics to accomplish their ‘miracles’. I cite examples of Jesus healing the sick by the power of his belief, Sai Baba, a living saint in India, Amma, the hugging saint. How powerful are we really?

Where is our consciousness located? Are we a race in mutation? Studies show that babies are now born with enlarged frontal lobes, which have always been credited for being the seat of higher intelligence, being the most recent development of our brain. What are the frontal lobes for? Are these children more gifted than their parents? Who are the Indigo children, and those Chinese
Super Psychics?

The question that YOU should be asking then is: What does this all mean for me if I have cancer? Can I cure my cancer? I describe the origins of cancer as science and psychology are started to find. Are there cancer personalities? I review the cancer statistics of life events leading to cancer. I use examples from the Institute of Noetics, which quotes 1000’s of cases of spontaneous remission.
Spontaneous remission is possible through the mind-body connection, through the way we think, the way we live our lives. Who is the healer within? Who is the observer that runs your body?

Spontaneous remission is a combination of many factors. Some of them are obvious and we already know them:

  • Proper diet, nutrition and exercise
  • Visualization, healing meditation

The combination of others can make a huge difference in the course of a terminal disease and this is where we need to start focusing our attention for permanent remission of cancer and the other terminal diseases that are so widespread.

Dr Magne’s dream is to stop disease. It is time for every single person on the planet to reclaim their power. She offers every reader the opportunity to ask the questions that are on their mind about cancer, leukemia, AIDS, through a simple survey.
