If you’re reading this, know that you are worthy of anything you desire. But you might have to let go of the past and release the huge accumulation of fear based beliefs and emotions you have picked up since childhood. Success isnt created by accident but by design. You have a creative mind and unlimited potential. Never forget it. Stay strong and be blessed.

I speak into a microphone on my phone so forgive me if words do not come up correctly I have a lot of respect and admire and I can only imagine well have lost people and I I don't want to go into that because I upsets me but I've had to make phone calls about people in my family and I've had to make phone calls from the hospital that I couldn't make and have to get my doctor to make them I've been ill all my life going to be 48 in September the 29th I'm officially disabled no one understands the pain that I go through no one's even care to look into it when I left England they told me I will be in a wheelchair at 45 years old but then I became anorexic years ago from 19 to 29 and I was getting better then my mom got ill for 3 years 3 Christmases in the hospital with cancer and many other things and my cancer came back and my cancer my anorexia came back which if you take anorexia for the full form is actually a killer when I left England I had higher mobility and higher care and I had to leave everything behind everything I was not allowed to claim visibility to live around or because labor was not in at that particular time conservatory it was in had it been labor they would have done and paid everything I had hospital Nights from my doctor for my hospitals from Jesus I even had one from the house secretary for me to go and live in Spain wish I done it there and then I suffer with depression but of course herself with depression so many bad things have happened they even I can't cope with. I wish people would understand me but they just they don't they know I live here in Spain I cannot afford Medical and I am around people who just think oh well if they get a sore leg or they'll get something wrong with him or quickly find them a plaster sympathetic to them there's nothing wrong with them I don't like it here. But I wish all the luck in the world to this woman I hope she does not give up I hope somehow there is a cure I don't know if I could cope with it but a transplant but it's best for me not to continue listening to this because I think I will get very depressed and I am very depressed at the moment anyway same English so I wish all those all the goodness and the health for this woman and her child and a family 🙏

As a returned soldier from WW2 from New Guinea my uncle aged 25 was diagnosed with lung problems from chemical exposure, he had one lung removed and was given maximum a year to live, the medical profession were not sure !! Most of the young men he served with died within a couple of years of returning to Australia. He died at age 94, he lived a great life, he had a great attitude and served others.

I have lived the past 20 years with a chronic health condition. Many times wishing not to live. I would say many times ,I’m not living I’m just existing. By the help and grace of God no more just existing,I will live!

She is correct, the will to live is amazingly strong, far stronger than most of us realize. None of us is promised tomorrow, but we can tweak our diets by eating as Dr. T. Colin Campbell suggests in his book 'The China Study'. We can overcome co-morbities, lose weight. and defeat cancer by eating only foods that are known to prevent its survival, we can decrease our toxic load, exercise, sleep well, meditate, bask in the love of our families and the beauty of nature. Rather than sit and cry when we receive a cancer diagnosis, we can make a plan to not only survive, but thrive, we can be there for our grandchildren when they graduate and marry. Persistance and determination are stronger than we can imagine. That is how I choose to live my life, so that at the end of the day, I can leave Planet Earth, a little better than I found it!

I had brain cancer in 1988 and removing the tumor left me paralyzed on one side and grossly overweight from all the steroids. The doctor said don’t worry about it because you’re gonna die in a year or two. Here I am moving all of my parts, however not that well on one side, and a size 6. I’m pretty happy with my life but it was a bit of work to get there. God bless you for who you are and how you are helping us around the world with this platform. Blessings, DrRed ❤️

This is a great wake up call. Other people negatively effect my life. I’m 64 and I have allowed this to happen. People taking advantage of me. Saying yes to requests every time and putting myself last, not noticing life slipping by. I lost my eldest son in 2020 with COVID. A 40 year old ultra runner. He was there and then he wasn’t. I still haven’t changed,but finding this video today is like a nudge from life telling me to sort myself out. Thank you Elin , you look radiant by the way.keep the faith

Elin, you inspire! Thank you for reminding me that when I had a massive left-brain stroke that muted me except for two words, and the healthcare team said, "She will never be able to speak fluidly, and it will take her 8-9 months before she can speak," I chose to detach from the dis-ease rather than owning it, and within three days I could speak clearly. So, Elin, I reckon, it's time to to do my TedTalk! Thank you so much!!

I lost the ability to digest fruits and veggies and grains completely 8 years ago and was forced to eat only fatty meat, it saved my life... The lesson is to listen to your body, my body started rejecting those foods when I was 15 and took 33 years of illness for me to finally listen!!!

A few months ago, i learned to live every day like its my last. Not so much in the fact of going out and doing extravagant things every single day, but l have learned to love fully, wholeheartedly, see the good in everyone and make at least one person smile every single day. I have learned to be kind to myself, and listen to the inner voice inside of myself instead of ignoring it and pushing it aside. She has a lot to say, and deserves to be heard. I live every day with gratitude, regardless of my circumstances. I'm still not where I want to be in life, as I want to live in a remote cabin, surrounded by nature. I live in a city, but even though I'm not where I want to be, does not mean I dont deserve to be happy

I'm on page 20 now, and must say this is so totally absorbing, thought provocing! It's also so incredibly easy to read and very hard to stop as it just flows so beautifully! It's the author's Joe Dispenza's recount of his recovery from an accident, which had left him with a shattered spine ( several places) and having the only option - complicated surgery, involving a metal bar being attached to his spine, covered with scrapings from his bones! This wouldn't even guarantee his total recovery. But, he decided against the surgery and he was send by an ambulance to stay in bed at friend's house, for three months. I sincerely recommend this book to anyone needing a healing. I'll try Joe's method to heal myself from severed tendons in my both shoulders. I can't wait to start today, after I've read a bit more. I cannot thank you enough Patty, I'm so excited already at the prospect of getting better. Thank you so much again! 🤗♥️

Kjos has a beautiful message. I was diagnosed with metastatic prostate cancer that had spread to my liver at age 49. It was difficult to accept, especially since I have two beautiful, young daughters. But, with the help of my amazing wife, I decided to live my life seeking the joyful moments, which there are many. I have come to realize that I love life! And nothing will take that feeling away from me while I am alive.

Oh please- get over yourself. Are you still 20? You act like it. You don't have it so bad- just bad attitude. People in Ukraine literally are more grateful than you. Get a NEW JOB or start a business. Work Out and eat right- which you clearly do not. Travel. Volunteer. Do something- just stop complaining. Not trying to be harsh but listen to this video.

If this speech was held by a "healthy person", it wouldnt have touched me i think, this "life is now", "live your life now"- attitude I am reading everyday on instagram. But this is different. Because I rarely imagine myself getting diagnosed with what she was - and in this minutes, when she talked about it, i imagined how it would be, so her words hit differently. All the best for you, strong woman.

I’ve watched this 3 times in 2 months and it stops me in my tracks each time. I’ve just seen it again now and I just clapped my hands and cried. Beautifully powerful and brave. Since I first saw this 3 friends have been diagnosed with serious cancers…. Another person I know had a head on collision on a motorbike and is fighting for her life…. If I take this over 3 years then my list would be even longer. We have no idea even 5 minutes ahead.. or if we say goodbye at the start of the day… if a loved one will return. We only have now…. I need to have this talk close.. because when all the fluff and nonsense hits my day and I feel fed up then I need to get perspective and gratitude. You are changing so many lives.. but we need your voice in our ears whenever we forget how precious life is and how we should greet each day with gratitude. God bless you….

I was diagnosed with a terminal illness in 2011. I had a very similar spiritual awakening. It was a true blessing in my life. The only thing holding me back from changing the things in my life I would like to, is money. I would love to live in a place I love. To travel to places I’ve only dreamed of. I’m still hopeful that maybe one day before my time comes, I will get to achieve those things. I am great full for every moment I have in this life and for whatever experiences I do get to have.

Elin. Thank you so very much for sharing, until now, I have not found such an inspirational presentation. Your story has reeduced me to tears, tears of inspiration “my love for life is so much stronger than my fear of dying”. I have survived three strokes since 2018; the most recent in January of this year has been the most devastating. Since January 5 of 2022, I have faced the overwhelming fear of another stroke, that could be worse. I am truly inspired to live life. I am truly grateful.

I like how my cancer was announced by my urologist in a very same way. His assistant called me for an appointment. He took the biopsy analysis and said you have a bladder cancer (full stop). He continued to expose how it will treated and fixed - a pretty hard core process. I start to learn all what's going on around my cancer. I upgrade the protocol wherever is needed. Still at work with changed responsibilities compatible with my treatments and side effects...

. There’s a great little book on natural healing written by an older man who cured himself of a number of maladies without medical intervention, called My Physician, Myself. I read it a couple of years ago but lost my copy. I’m going to Amazon right now to order one and be more careful with it. It’s more than well worth the read. You might look into the work of Luigi Cornaro, a Venetian nobleman who lived to 102

Elin such a beautiful way to live. “ I was supposed to be dead” resonates with me so much. I was healed of a Mass that was on my left lower lung. I was also healed of granular lung disease which I never even knew that I had. I believe in the Power of Prayer, Meditation and a Healthy Lifestyle. I too have been on a Healing Journey since July 1st 2016. My journey started the day that I found out that I was Type 2 Diabetic and I was on a mission to heal my body without medication, which I did. I am not against medication. God Opened the doors to start my healing from childhood trauma in my 50s. I survived the night that my first husband tried to kill me when I was 17 years old. If You beautiful people don’t think that you have a purpose in life, I’m here to tell you that you do and I love you.

There is such a beauty shining through you, not only physical beauty but also the beauty of your soul and your heart with every word you were speaking and expressing in this amazing talk!!! There is a light and a strength that is so strong and a humbleness that you are radiating, dear Elin! Thank you so much for sharing your story, the lessons of your healing journey and for showing us, the world, the transformed new you that you have become and are becoming!! You have the spirit of a spiritual warrior and the courageous heart of an athlete who has learned to understand what truly winning means…and that is so priceless and inspiring!! I’ve been through one of my worst years in my life last year and it’s a huge miracle that I’m still alive and in a much, much better place by now… I am on my own healing journey and so grateful to be allowed to learn and be inspired by such beautiful and courageous souls like you are…!! I’m looking forward to the time when I will be able to say that that year was the best year of my life… What kept me going was the strong desire to be able to help people one day so that all the suffering and major Traumata have happened for a higher purpose, for a reason not only to transform myself but to be of service to others as well. Yes, and you are right, what am I waiting for? Why not start living it NOW? …You are living it already… Thank you again!! Sending much love, light and many more blessings and miracles as you are realizing your highest potential and purpose that you came here to experience …🙏💖✨💫🌟❣️

The time is now! Indeed, it is time now to express my immense gratitude to your inspiring spirit to live fully now as fully as I can for as long as I can. Like you, I received an unexpected cancer diagnosis at 40 with disbelief from the doctors but I strong belief in this diagnosis is an unexpected gift for us to inspire others to live fully and embrace the gift of life. You do that and did that in this amazing presentation. Thank you and certainly wishing you the very best!

This kept coming up on my feed and I kept ignoring it because I’m afraid of the C word and I am old and so full of regret. I didn’t realize how scared I was of the passing years. What if I decide not to fear old age? What if I could get over the feeling it’s too late?Great share! Very helpful. Maybe lifesaving:)

My heart goes out to you. You are strong, wise and keep up the good life. I can empathize with you as I spent 8 years of my life recovering from illness, Lyme, EBV and Coxsackie. Three years sliding downhill and 5 years recovering. With the help of a wonderful doctor well-versed in Homeopathy and Allopathy, changed my diet, reassessed priorities and finally really began to take care of myself. It works.
