If you or someone close to you has been diagnosed with cancers of the blood cells (like leukemia or lymphoma), this article dives into Early signs of leukemia and some deeper issues and questions that you may want to reflect upon.
How do you feel about family and society?
So, how do you get Leukemia? Cancers of the blood and its components are related to “life-blood” or basic survival i.e. feeling physically and emotionally safe and secure about life. Such feelings are so basic that they cannot be explained rationally. Rather, they are very deep-seated and often inherited very early, from one’s family and social circumstances.
You can witness the early signs of leukemia in how you feel about yourself and surroundings. For example, even wealthy people can feel insecure about money, or the most loving parents may have children who feel unworthy of love.
Blood is also associated with life-force or vitality. When the “life-blood” flows strongly, we feel vital and joyous, full of enthusiasm and inspiration. However, when a person is afraid of life, feels unsafe, does not give expression to their ideas, becomes withdrawn and experiences a lack of joy, they may be prone to blood-related illnesses.
The “root” chakra
Blood receives its life-force from the root chakra. The health of this chakra is influenced by how we relate and connect with our family, religion, society – those things that we are born into.
One of the early signs of leukemia that you should look for are strained relationships with the basic environment, people and systems of birth.
Childhood beliefs can hurt
Early signs of leukemia start showing in the childhood itself. So, leukemia is one of the most common cancers affecting children. Though most leukemias are diagnosed in adulthood, the beliefs that patients may have inherited as children have a key role to play. Signs of leukemia in children start showing at an early age.
Consequently, children are especially susceptible to criticism and inheriting self-limiting beliefs from their family.
A parent angrily exclaiming, “You’re stupid”, or “I wish you were never born”, may cause a child to deeply believe it. Over time, this leads to severe self de-valuation.
Louise Hay offers specific insights into early signs of leukemia and the thought patterns that may lead to lymphomas. She correlates lymphomas with a tremendous fear of not being good enough, a frantic race to prove one’s self until the blood has no substance left to support itself. The joy of life is forgotten in the race to find acceptance.
Here are a few things that you can reflect upon. The insights can help you recognise the early signs of leukemia.
- Do you feel safe and secure about your life? If not, what are the things, situations or people that make you feel insecure?
- What is your relationship with your family? Do you wish something was different about you?
- What belief patterns did you inherit from your family? Which ones do you want to let go of?
- What superstitions do you have? Which have more authority over you than your own reasoning ability?
- What unfinished business do you have with your family members? What prevents you from healing your family relationships?
- List all the blessings that you feel came from your family?
- What is your relationship with your religion? Are you satisfied or dissatisfied with it? In what way?
- How do you feel about the society that you live in? What do you wish was different?
- How strong is your need for others approval? What do you do to win approval?
