In July of 1990, I was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Lacrimal Gland and given less than a 10% chance to live with radical surgery, if I survived the surgery. I chose the surgery, my only chance at life, and had my complete left eye and orbit removed. I was 33 years old and had just finished my master’s degree in Music Therapy and Behavioral Medicine. I had studied the research of Dr. O. Carl Simonton, M.D., and Helen Bonny, Ph.D., and decided to visualize the “Mr. Clean white tornado” to clean all the cancer out of the now empty eye socket. I used this image almost constantly. For example, I would spin that tornado sitting at a stop light, waiting in a grocery line, relaxing at home, etc. In 1995, I was given a clean bill of health and evoking the imagery gave way to fully engaging in life.
In 2017, I was moved to write a book about my journey through cancer, called Prevail: Celebrate the Journey, describing the actions I took, my beliefs, experiences, and an important outcome of the journey, the inception of Sailability Greater Tampa Bay, Inc., a non-profit sailing program for people with disabilities. I want to share with you my experience of validation of the “Mr. Clean white tornado,” which I described in my book:
. . . in 2009, I took a course from Donna Eden (2008) on energy medicine for women. It was given over several days and we were trained in the techniques of energy healing. Donna came up to me during one of the exercises and asked me to see her after class. I was wondering what I was doing wrong. It kind of felt like being called to the principal’s office!
We set up a time and place to meet. Her initial question was, “What is that white spinning energy in your eye socket? I’ve never seen anything like it before.” I was shocked. I hadn’t thought about the image in years! Donna Eden is one of those people who can see energy fields. She was born that way. I asked her to describe what she was seeing. We had never had a conversation before, and she certainly did not know that I’d had cancer, or anything about the image I had used to clean it out of my system.
She replied, “You know, a spinning white vortex. That’s what it looks like.” I then told her the story of the cancer and the imagery.
It was her turn to be shocked. She, like me, agreed it must have come from the imaging I had done for so long. It felt incredible to have actual physical evidence of the imagery and the result of keeping the area where the cancer was clean and free of any cells that could cause havoc again.
Thank you, Donna, for validating the work of those researchers who provided me with a powerful tool to address the cancer. And thank you for such an incredible workshop in Energy Medicine for Women.
