What is lymphoma? The World Health Organization lists over 40 types of lymphoma. There are two main categories Hodgkin’s and nonhodgkins lymphoma. All the lymphomas are related to the same types of conflicts.
Signs of lymphoma usually start in the lymph nodes and are felt as lumps or swellings; it can be also be seen on the skin as red swellings that can grow larger than an apple. Some of these swelling can progress very rapidly, sometimes in just a few hours.
The causes of lymphomas usually involve healing feelings of devaluation over an attack or a head-on fear. Perhaps you felt you could not defend yourself? Powerlessness, feelings of lack of approval, trying fulfill oneself by constantly solving problems for others.
Lymphomas are a healing phase illness involving ectodermic tissue. They are often considered a secondary or metastatic cancer. For example a woman with breast cancer can develop lymphoma in the armpit by partially resolving a fear conflict related to an attack on the breast (by the cancer or by a surgeon).
During the conflict active phase, necrosis or painless tissue breakdown occurs. The location of the lymphoma indicates the tonality of the conflict.
Alfred, 45 years old noticed red bumps appear in the pelvic area. His doctor took a biopsy and it was diagnosed as lymphoma. Alfred freaked out and believed he was living in his last mortal days.
I first worked with Alfred to overcome the shock and terror of his lymphoma prognosis. Alfred had been molested as a boy and felt attacked and powerless to defend himself. This conflict stayed with him since he was eight years old. When he overcame the conflict, his body began healing in the form of multiple lymphomas.
Alfred quickly recovered in a few weeks without any medical intervention.
Geraart, 50 professional violinist. He had a large lymphoma on the right shoulder area, near where he would rest his violin. He had been challenged for his position of first chair in the symphony. He felt personally attacked, he felt his career and livelihood were attacked. He began to heal, but he had doubts about the emotional conflicts behind his illness. (his sister made him see me, he was reluctant and was not to cooperative).
He then refused further help and his sister sadly told me that he had passed 6 months later.
