Keeping a healthy mind and soul
Healthy mind, healthy soul
Since my biopsy in June 2020, I have worked very heard not to be too stressed or emotional! Mainly because I found out that stress significantly raises the risk of endometrial cancer. I have been attending Brahma Kumaris Raja Yoga sessions since 2018 which has helped me peel back the layers of self-doubt and negative self-talk. I also learned Reiki during lockdown and have become a Reiki Master, which has helped tremendously too.
On this page, I share some of my favourite resources which help me connect with positive thoughts, which I know gave me the drive to give myself the strength to set myself the three-month challenge to reverse the damage to my womb.
Brahma Kumaris, the Lighthouse Centre
Brahma Kumaris (BK) Worthing Centre is called The Lighthouse. I first visited BK in Worthing to listen to a Sunday talk. Inspirational talks take place most Sundays between 2.30pm-4pm and after a few talks, I tried a few informal meditation evenings. They run many courses including Raja Yoga which helps me maintain a peaceful soul, even when the going gets tough. Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University is global, so if you are not near Worthing, use this link to find your nearest Brahma Kumaris Centre. I can’t recommend them high enough, and I know that regular mediation has helped me achieve my three month challenge.
Anthony Strano meditations
I was introduced to Anthony Strano by Brahma Kumaris, Lighthouse in Worthing. On my first visit, after hearing a BK meditation for the first time, I asked for a meditation CD. “A Time for Healing” by Anthony Strano was recommended. Here is a link to “Letting Go of Fear” which is one many excellent meditations.

This Why positive thinking doesn’t work is the best analogy I’ve seen for positive thinking! If you only meditate once a year, it won’t work. We have years of negative thoughts to shift, so we need to keep diluting negative thoughts with positive thoughts. So when my mind is clouded with a negative thought, I switch it with a positive thought. Thanks to Brahma Kumaris Worthing, I am more observant of my thoughts and catch negativity in its tracks before it spirals out of control and brings me down.
