Tomorrow marks 4 years since my double mastectomy surgery.


Tomorrow marks 4 years since my double mastectomy surgery.
A few months before I got diagnosed I started seeing the number 11 so frequently that one day I thought, “let me just google this and see if there’s anyone else who has experienced this to make sure I’m going crazy!.” I knew nothing about Numerology at the time so I was shocked when I saw that seeing the number 11 everywhere is actually a “thing” that many other people have experienced! In fact it’s called the Number 11 Phenomenon.
The number 11 has a lot of meaning but what stood out to me was that it is said to be a message from the universe that you are on the right path and that you’re being assisted by your Soul, spirit guides, and the Universe to consciously grow, expand and experience spiritual growth. At the time I was planning to move to San Diego which was a 10 year long dream, so I thought this message was relating to my move but little did I know this was about to guide me through the one of the most transformation events of my life.
When diagnosed I was 2 months away from the move I was mad at the universe! I felt like for once in my life I had trusted a higher power and it betrayed me. At the same time when I would see the number 11 I would feel a glimmer of hope shine through. That hope began to grow as this journey unfolded
Originally my surgery was scheduled for May 3rd but something happened and it was rescheduled for the May 11th at 11:00 a.m. I mean what are the chances?!
That was a scary day because although all prior tests had shown that the cancer didn’t spread to my lymph nodes none of that is 100% until they surgically remove a lymph node and test it for cancer. This means you will wake up from surgery and be greeted with the best news of your life or the absolute worst.
I woke up that morning did a meditation and prayed that I would get good news. I felt like the universe had my back but I went in crippled with anxiety under the uncertainty of it all.
Slowly coming to in the recovery room, barely able to talk yet and I asked the nurse, “did it spread?” She said she didn’t know and would call someone. I was still pretty out of it so I can’t even remember who told me the good news but I do remember that I didn’t believe them right away. I kept asking so I could hear the words, “it didn’t spread” a few times before it really sunk in.
I stayed in the hospital for a few days and I remember this being a time where I felt cocooned with love from my family. On the drive home from the hospital we saw a rainbow and that was truly a “god moment” for me. I felt like the rainbow shining down from heaven as a sign that everything was going to be ok

I think it’s important to honor trauma with intentional reflection but not be pulled down by the gravity of it. I believe view it as a life changing experiences in lives but

e or the absolute worst.

An energetic doorway is being opened in which you will experience spiritual growth. this time I was planning my move so San Diego so to me this was just confirmation that I was making the right move. I had no idea that I would be dealing with breast cancer before I could make that move.
