Six Steps For Thriving

These steps are a guide through the terrain of fear to freedom. Take your time with each step. Use them as a tool for your life.


The first step on this journey is to STOP. Just stop. Stop. Stop doing. Stop waiting for results. Stop worrying. Stop researching. Stop crying. Stop the lot. Stop and BREATHE. Breathe. Breathe.

Step two is about taking stock. Once you have your breath about you, take stock of where you are now. What is going on around you and within you? The alarm of a health crisis has woken you up. It may have shaken you out of the routines of life and the patterns to which you have become accustom. Now is the time to look around at your situation and your life and be courageously honest with where you are right now. It is challenging work so keep breathing.



Step three is the most important step! There is the only question you need to ask! Decide, do you want to live or do you want to die? Be honest. Do you want to live or die?


"If you're not ready to die, then how can you live?"
- Charles de Lint, Svaha

You have decided to live, in this step, you are invited to create a life worth living. Dream yourself into being. Develop a vision for you and your life. What is worth living for? Take time to get clear on where you are going and who do you want to be in a year, 5 years, 10 years? Where are you going and who are you becoming?



Step five is where all the fun begins. Expand yourself beyond the limits of what you thought was possible. You have decided you want to live, to thrive! Now is your opportunity to proceed with an open heart and an open mind and allow your ideas and thoughts about life and illness to be challenged and changed forever! Let yourself expand to incorporate new information that will serve you on your journey to thriving. Let your mind reach to consider the impossible....let your heart embrace your power to heal.
