Oh, the irony of writing a series about the storms of life and experiencing Hurricane Ian last week. That physical storm was really intense. I can imagine that you witnessed the impact via the news or social media; thus, you may have an inkling of that. However, living through it in 3D color reminded me, once again, of the Power of the Serenity Prayer.
Now you may be wondering how on earth can the Serenity Prayer reduce our risk of breast cancer. Hang on, read on. Last October, I released a webinar entitled Breast Health Awareness. As we enter Breast “Cancer” Awareness month in 2022, I want to continue to share healing, revitalizing information that the pink campaign and western medicinal establishment are NOT sharing!
In my 12-step recovery journey of over 3.5 years, healing and recovering from codependency, I recite this prayer at least once daily. In the past 90 days, I have recited it a few times a day.
God Grant me the Serenity
To Accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can,
And Wisdom to know the difference!
…living one day at a time, trusting that He (You) will make all things
right, if I surrender to His(Your) will.
Personally, I love the 2nd half of this prayer, which we often do not hear or see. I’ve changed the pronouns from He to You; as for me, it makes this more personal and consistent with addressing God in prayer.
As I have recited this prayer repeatedly, like many things we repeat, it is now memorized, and I can tap into its power at any time.
If you have been following me or reading my material, you know that I am very concerned about the impact of stress on our hormonal balance and, thus, every organ in our bodies. However, I’m also concerned about the impact of stress on us emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and relationally, too.
I have been studying energy medicine for years. I truly believe in the power of frequencies – the frequencies of our thoughts, our words, and our actions. They ALL impact our Vitality! Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., renowned author of The Biology of Belief, considered the Godfather of Epigenetics, spoke to a standing room audience in Atlanta in 2019. He said these profound words “Your thoughts change your biochemistry. Your biochemistry changes the action of your cells”. That is POWERFUL!! Think about it. The thoughts we have, and the words we say, will impact our biochemistry and our physiology. Our thoughts can impact every cell in our body AND how we respond mentally and emotionally. Spoken words are sounds, and all sounds have inherent power through their frequency. Word frequencies vibrate from low to high. Lower frequency sounds and words vibrate in the emotional realm of fear, regret, blame, guilt, hopelessness, grief, and despair. When a person expresses negative energy, low-frequency words, they are reflected in their emotions. Over time, as we habitualize these words into our vocabulary, they can cause body illness – this is “the law of frequency and vibration.”
This chart created by David R. Hawkins, renowned author of Power vs. Force, is an example
of the frequency of various high and low-frequency words.
To put this in perspective as it relates to dis-ease
Can you see how the power of our thoughts and words can have a direct impact on us!! Dr. Bruce Lipton also stated in the seminar I attended that “cancer is caused by the lack of forgiveness”! WOW! Remember, our thoughts and words create energy. They change our biochemistry, and our biochemistry tells our cells what to do!
Note the difference between Breast “Health” Awareness vs. Breast “Cancer” Awareness. The marketing energy around our breasts has all been focused on negativity and disempowerment!! We, you, and me- we have the power to create something different, each and every day – by what we see, say, feel, do, and become! We can change our physiology. We can impact our health on every level!
When you think of negative emotions, stop for a moment, and think about the stress levels associated when you use those words. Ah, I bet your cortisol or stress hormones are elevated when you’re using those negative words. As I’ve shared in previous articles – more cortisol means less progesterone, estrogen dominance, and an increased risk for breast cancer. The Serenity Prayer to the rescue!
Let’s delve deeper into the keywords of the Serenity Prayer to get a glimpse of its frequency and its power.
Serenity – Serenity means the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled! Antonyms for serenity are agitation, turbulence, turmoil, unrest, and upheaval.
Would you prefer to resonate at the frequency of calm and peace or turmoil and unrest?
Accept – Acceptance means to receive or take responsibility. Antonyms are to reject, deny, disallow and forfeit.
Oh, can I tell you how I have fought acceptance!! For years I have wanted to fight against reality. Do you know the old saying “Kicking against the bricks”? It hurts! Byron Katie so powerfully states, “When you argue against reality, you lose, but only 100%, of the time!” When we resist, it just persists. Acceptance is a much gentler energy for our bodies to manage. Look at the chart above – Acceptance resonates at 350Hz.
Courage – Courage is the ability to do something that frightens us, the strength in the face of pain or grief. It’s a choice and willingness to agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Harold B. Lee, one of my heroes years ago, suggested that we study the Serenity Prayer and that “courage is an affair of the Spirit.”
The antithesis of Courage is fear, cowardice, and faint-heartedness. Would you rather resonate at 200 Hz (Courage) or 100 Hz (fear)?
Wisdom – wisdom means the knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action, sagacity, discernment, or insight.
The antithesis of wisdom is ignorance, stupidity, thoughtlessness, and imprudence. Where would you rather resonate?
Notice your own body whenever you articulate these or similar phrases. See what happens to your physiology. Expressed verbally, negative emotions attract more of the same. And so, we encounter “Murphy’s Law.”
By contrast, higher-frequency emotions and words—such as Serenity, Acceptance, Courage, and Wisdom can create a noticeable and immediate shift in your energy. Try it for yourself: Speak or read the Serenity Prayer and notice the difference in how you feel. As you begin to incorporate more high-frequency words in your conversations, you will vibrate at a higher emotional frequency, and your experiences will match these levels.
As you have read, I’m passionate about the power of the Serenity Prayer – in the moment and for our long-term health. Try it today, and notice the difference in your vitality!
