What events led up to you deciding to take back your life?
Before I was diagnosed with cancer (not that I would have known this was the case at that time) my life was feeling empty, meaningless and purposeless. I wanted something different, but I didn’t know what that was, so I couldn’t pursue it. I was just waiting. Waiting to find out, waiting for life to happen, waiting for something, anything to make it more meaningful and put it on the “right” track. I was abdicating my power to CHOOSE my own life. I wasn’t bringing all of me to life and I wasn’t expressing the truth of who I was.
Was there a significant event or moment that made you realize you needed to make a change? What was it?
Even after I had been diagnosed with cancer I was still looking outside of myself for validation, for how to do cancer “right”, etc.
Then there was this moment, when clear as a bell, I heard the goddess say to me: Be Signý Wilson or don’t be Signý Wilson. It doesn’t matter which one you choose. I love you either way. If you don’t want to be Signý Wilson we can roll the dice and start again, it’s not big deal. But you need to choose.
Boy was that a wake up call. And did it ever change EVERYTHING!
Was there a first step of action when you decided to take back your life? What was it?
My first clear action step that came out of this change of heart… was firing my surgeon.
I hated my first surgeon. But I was so scared that if I didn’t just suck it up and let her cut into my body that I might die. But I couldn’t be myself with her, and I couldn’t express myself around her, and all of that was a good sign that she was not the right surgeon for me. That and that I needed to change my life to one where I could be fully myself and be fully expressed…. and anything that didn’t support me in that needed to go.
Since you took back your life, how have things changed for you?
Now I get to bring all of me to all of my life. I notice when things are off and I take powerful steps to correct that. I honour my own self, my true heart as much as I can in any situation and I am REAL!
From that my life has meaning, feels full and on purpose. I am making the difference I was born to make, being the person I was born to be. Now that I have gotten out of my own way, that is.
And I need to keep choosing that every day. It is not like a thing on a list that I ticked off and now it is done forever and ever… oh no. I need to keep making myself a priority and keep honouring my truth (to the best of my ability in any moment).
What would you say to anyone who finds themselves in the situation you were in?
Take the time to slow down, even to stop, and get connected with yourself, with your true essence. Because in there are the answers that are for you, the answers that only you can know are right, for you.
No one else can tell you what is best for you. No one.
Find the way to honour yourself, as much as possible given the constraints of life, in every situation.
And above all… start NOW!
