I Really Want To Go To The Party, But I Have To Study For My Breast Exam

Think Pink

Think Pink

I don’t know why we women must wait all year to pay special attention to our breasts.  Men view them positively 365 days a year.  Regardless of the size or shape, breasts still rate above ass and legs as men’s favorite body part.  Why don’t we give them the same love?

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Everywhere campaigns are reminding us to check our breasts to identify a pea-sized c before it becomes THE Big C.

Energetically, breasts represent mothering, nurturing and nourishment says Louise Hay in her classic book You Can Heal Your Life.  Cancers stem from our deep hurts and longstanding resentments.  If you combine the two, then breast cancer might be the manifestation of the anger we feel towards ourselves for our lack of self care and for always putting others’ needs before our own.

I prefer to “Think Pink” rather than focus my attention on Breast Cancer,  to move away from the idea of breast EXAMS.  None of us want to fail and no one, including our breasts, likes taking a test .  Change the thought from “I’d better examine my breasts in case I have cancer” to an attitude of “let me take five minutes to care for myself.”


This is not the doctor’s office – enjoy the experience.  The privacy of your bath or shower is as a good of place as any to begin your monthly ritual.  Choose a scented soap or a lovely oil and hold it in your hands.  Palms upwards, imagine you are holding a ball of pink light.  When the light is very strong, cup your hand over your breast and see the pink light covering your breast.

Say one of Louise Hay’s affirmations (here’s where you may have to study a bit but it’s not hard)

“I am important.  I count.  I now care for and nourish myself with love and with joy.  I allow others the freedom to be who they are.  We are all safe and free.”


“I lovingly forgive and release all of the past.  I choose to fill my world with joy.  I love and approve of myself.”

In a circular motion, using your fingertips, carefully and gently spread the loving energy.  Continue saying your affirmation as you massage the pink light into every cell and every gland in your entire breast.  When finished, allow yourself to feel the pink light to spread throughout your body.  Say thank you to your self.

If you happen to find a hard spot, your body is sending you a wake up call. Listen and take care of yourself immediately.

Quit looking for Trouble.  Breast awareness means becoming aware of our needs.  Approach your breasts with love and they will respond positively.

And tell your loved one how great your breasts are.  I am certain he or she will be more than happy to help you nurture your joy 365 days AND nights a year.

    Such an important message… what we think about we create… I do not allow myself thoughts of getting cancer… as soon as I hear the word or think the word… I just say within “No, no, no” to X it out of my memory…and I am most grateful…
