Collaging with Cancer: A SoulCollage® Journey
By Anne Marie Bennett | Updated September 8, 2018
Sometimes a SoulCollage® card comes together in a way that puzzles me, because I’m not sure what it could possibly mean. I made this card soon after my mastectomy in 2011 after being diagnosed with secondary angiosarcoma in my left breast. I was feeling worn out, wounded and somehow “damaged goods.”
Then these images “found me” and I put them together on this card. When I journaled with these beings, they spoke to me as a unit. And the relief I experienced was enormous, as I listened to the message that they brought me:
Who are you?
We Are the Ones Who are floating in the muted seas of healing. We Are the Ones Who have lights to guide us. We Are the Ones Who are not struggling or pushing, but who are relaxing and letting go and just following the feeling, following the light.
What do you have to give me?
Our gift to you is lightness of being. We give you the ability to trust, to float freely towards your own healing. We give you quiet joy as you explore and follow the light that is given to you in the murky darkness of your unknowing.
What do you want from me?
We want you to relax, to let go, to trust that healing is coming to you, that you are moving towards it with every breath you take. We want you to remember that this journey is not a struggle, it is a joyous adventure of trust and faith and light.
