But before I begin, you might want to grab a cuppa or a long, cold green smoothie.
Because this is going to be a long story…
A few weeks ago, I got a phone call out of the blue from my mother, whom I haven’t had much of a relationship with for almost 17 years.
And she told me two things:
- That my 101-year-old grandfather (her dad) had passed away, from prostate cancer
- That she’s been dealing with cancer herself for the last few months
Talk about a world-shaking, brain-rattling, heart-breaking revelation!
At first it didn’t really sink in, but as the truth started to work its way through my brain, I found myself feeling and thinking all kinds of unexpected things, and suddenly everything I’d been focusing on somehow didn’t seem as important any more.
And then, one week later, I had a powerful experience that I can only describe as hearing my calling.
I’m not a religious person, but I am deeply spiritual, and in this moment I had a deep, clear vision of something new, something powerful, something so BIG that it scares the living daylights out of me, that I simply HAVE to create in the world.
And the crazy thing is, it makes sense of everything I’ve ever learned in this lifetime so far. EVERY. SINGLE. THING.
- the vegan food
- the science
- the energy work
- the alternative therapies
- the natural health
- the intuition
- the self-care
- the law of attraction
- the bodyweight exercises
- the astrology
- the genetics
- the meditation
- the biochemistry
- the non-violent communication
- the food allergies
- the blogging
- the mindset work
- the homeopathy
- the online business
- the kinesiology
- the gardening
- and more.
All of it.
I can’t believe how everything in my life has been leading me to this point.
I thought this was the kind of thing that only happened to other people.
So what am I being called to do?
I want to support women who are dealing with cancer, to find ways to heal their bodies naturally.
There I said it.
Putting it down in writing makes it a 100 times more real, and it brings up all of my fears, about why I shouldn’t do it, and why I can’t do it, and all the bad things that might happen if I take this thing on.
But this is also something that I can’t NOT do. I HAVE to do this.
Not just for me. Not just for my mother.
But for every single person everywhere who’s dealing with this, but only has half the story, and is wondering why they’re not getting any better.
When I look at how many people are developing cancer – both in my immediate circle of friends and family, and also across the entire planet – and how the conventional approaches just aren’t working as well as they should, and how so many people are suffering needlessly, my heart wants to break.
But, more importantly, I want to do something about it.
We’ve had so many answers for this scourge that DO work for hundreds of years, and yet so many people don’t have access to this information, or know what to do with it all.
I want to reach as many people as I can, to help them take back control of their bodies, and engage their natural ability to heal.
And because you’re someone who cares about eating vibrantly, and using the power of food to improve your own health, I figured that you might just understand where I’m coming from.
So I would love your support as I launch my new project, “Choosing Differently” into the world.
There are a few different ways that you can do that, and I would be so grateful if you could do even just one of them, or as many of them as you feel able to:
- Sign up for email updates from Choosing Differently
- Like the Choosing Differently Facebook page
- Follow Choosing Differently on Twitter
- Subscribe to the Choosing Differently YouTube channel
If you’ve been touched by cancer, either personally or with someone close to you, then please share this post, my new website and my new project to help even more people take control of their health and activate their natural ability to heal.
I’ve also put together a Natural Healing Quickstart Guide with 10 simple things you can start doing right now to help your body prevent and heal cancer, and you can grab your free copy of my guide here:
So, now you know why you haven’t seen a new recipe from me recently, like you normally would have, because I’ve been processing all of these massive changes in my world, and starting work on my new project.
I still plan to continue sharing my recipes on Eating Vibrantly as always, starting back next month, so that even more people can discover the health and happiness that comes from the power of whole, plant-based foods.
Thank you for your support and have an awesome day!
All my love,
~ Nikki, Eating Vibrantly
