A story about the amazing Grace Jones and her colon cancer healing process and reiki during surgery

While sitting across the table with my sister at what I was told was a health fair in mid-September, we met a truly amazing woman. It turned out that this was clearly not a health fair and Grace Jones was the only person who stopped and talked to my sister and me that day. One might think that it was just a silly coincidence, but I don’t believe in coincidences. In my heart, I know that we were meant to meet that day, and I am so grateful that we did.

Grace stopped by to comment that she loved my black shirt with purple butterflies…sharing with me that purple is her favorite color too. As she looked at the things she was selling at my table, she asked a few questions about Reiki and the crystal healing bags she had created. This quickly turned into what seemed like a conversation with an old friend, and she shared with me her story that she had been diagnosed with colon cancer and that surgery was scheduled for the end of the month. This is a story that Grace had decided not even to share with her family. I was honored that she felt comfortable enough to share her story with me. Talking to Grace, I quickly sensed her soul, hearing the incredible amount of positivity that washed over me as I talked about her life while talking to her.

Thinking back to the cancer diagnosis that came my way, I am reminded of the wide variety of emotions that washed over me on a daily basis, none of which were positive or even remotely healthy for me. But the woman in front of me exuded strength, positivity, love and so much light. Just from the way she spoke and the passion for her life in her voice, she might never have known what she was going through if she hadn’t told me. She could feel the brightest light in her soul. Even as she talked about her diagnosis, she knew without a doubt that she would find the rainbow at the end of it all, and she would come out an even stronger and brighter Grace than she was before. What a truly amazing woman, and I feel blessed to now call her my friend.

A few days after I met Grace, she called me to talk about Medical Reiki and asked me about all the healing benefits of Reiki before, during and after surgery. Grace asked me to apply Reiki to her during her surgery and I was honored to be a part of this beautiful woman’s healing process. I immediately sent out a post to all my Certified Reiki Medical Master sisters to be with us on the day of Grace surgery in spirit with healing and thoughts of love and light. Due to short notice, I couldn’t physically be in the OR with her, but we planned a two-hour Reiki session during her surgery, and I provided a Reiki drip for the next few hours after surgery so that hopefully she could be out of recovery quickly and find himself in his balloon-filled hospital room resting and beginning to heal. Before her surgery, Grace arranged for herself a room that would look and feel like a celebration was taking place while she was there. This is how Grace lived her life and shined at all times. Even after her surgery, she wanted to be able to see fun things of light and happiness around her as she recovered in her hospital room.

Grace had given her daughter my phone number so we could communicate after her surgery and she was so happy to hear all the updates on her miraculous milestones after each day had passed. After a few days, Grace was emailing me herself with wonderful updates on how she was feeling and how she had fully returned to her true, happy self. Three weeks later, Grace and I met up for brunch and boy, did she look absolutely stunning. Once again, with so much light in her heart, she would never have guessed all that had happened because this beautiful woman was radiant. And this to me says a lot about her person. I learned that day, that she, like most of us, has a history with some less than wonderful things that she has endured in her life. Sitting across from me was this amazing Grace, who through her own trials and tribulations in her life, did not allow any of that darkness to penetrate the light of her mind, body, and soul. In fact, to celebrate her life in the coming weeks, she had planned an incredible trip to London with her daughter. What an amazing soul she is…truly an inspiration to me!

Grace, I thank you for allowing me to be a part and share the story of your healing journey after your cancer diagnosis and surgery. It is my hope that everyone, including myself, realizes the many blessings of life around us and continues to see that we all have bumps in life’s path. It’s really how you handle those bumps that makes all the difference in our lives. From what little I’ve learned about Grace, I know that she continually sees sunlight, even through the rain. This dear ones is really living life and what life is all about. If we all learned to do this, the world would surely be a brighter place. Grace, to me, you are and always will be Amazing Grace, and I feel blessed to know you. hugs and kisses

This is the healing time period summary post I sent to all my Certified Medical Reiki Master sisters who sent their love and light to everyone involved in Grace’s surgery:

Thank you for all the thoughts you sent us while doing Distant Reiki for a truly inspiring and positive woman who had undergone colon cancer surgery. She wanted to share a wonderful summary of miraculous healing. Post Surgery I received reports from her daughter that her surgery was a success. On day 3, Grace emailed me while she was in the hospital saying that she was fine and in great spirits. On day 4, Grace reached all milestones and would be discharged the following day. She reports that she is doing very well and to the surprise of all the doctors at her healing progress. On day 6, she reports no pain from the surgery, just back pain from the horrible hospital bed. On day 10, Grace is well enough to go to the beach to heal in her happy place and reports that she is getting stronger every day. On the 12th she met with her doctor to receive the news that the surgery revealed stage 2 colon cancer. It was all removed and it had not spread, so no radiation or chemotherapy was needed. She reports that she is healing very well and feels great! Her body is working back to normal and her appetite is good! I feel truly blessed to receive such wonderful news and to have been able to support her on this healing journey. I wanted to thank you all for her healing thoughts and support, as well as bring you some absolutely amazing healing news.

Please share this story with anyone you know so they can help or you could just use an inspirational message in their lives.
