The Healing Consciousness: A Doctor's Journey to Healing

This book was written to share in an honest and open format, my life's journey that I have been blessed to experience. It is certainly not a traditional path in Western medicine, but it encourages others to become open on their journey through life to experience the wonders right in front of them. Every day of our lives is a gift, and we should all pay attention to the beauty and love that surrounds us.

Medicine has always been my calling, or so I thought. Actually medicine was my guide to healing; my souls purpose. The first thirty years of my life I was so focused on becoming a physician, I overlooked the many gifts that were already present in my life. Through powerful experiences with patients, friends and my family, I have gained insight into what healing truly is and how we find it. Every human being has moments when we are touched by the divine, but many fail to recognize them as such. By awakening to an awareness of these synchronistic events, we begin to embrace the connection that exists between all beings.

Adversity can be the greatest teacher the universe can throw at us. If we are unable or unwilling to be open to change, we will miss the opportunity to grow and to experience the wonders of truly “living.” I have never been afraid of change, but now I welcome it as yet another opportunity to grow as a spiritual being.

Breast cancer, like any disease, brings about change that is seldom anticipated and never desired. My goal as a doctor and healer is to ease my patient’s passage through this process of change. Creating a new and better existence may not seem to go along with a diagnosis of cancer, yet the level of adversity cancer brings allows for tremendous growth in positive ways. Helping to eliminate the fear that surrounds the disease is often the most daunting task. Not only do patients manifest this fear, but also the spouse, parents and children involved. Fear has the ability to paralyze even the strongest human beings. Alleviating this fear, the fear the cancer may return and ultimately the fear of death, is often more challenging than treating the physical cancer.

I have experienced the greatness that the release of this fear can manifest. I see the healing process unfold before my eyes on a daily basis. I have been able to create balance within my own life since I began to my advice—advice I have given to my patients for years. I have been on a journey for several years not knowing exactly where I was heading. I have chosen to share my experiences as a physician and healer with you just as I have chosen to welcome the healing consciousness in my life.

The healing consciousness is the awareness found deep with in oneself, where you embrace the eternal nature of your soul and release all fear of death. Embracing this awareness, you are completely free to experience the journey of life. Illness and disease can be our teachers. They empower us to embrace the moment and live the journey to the fullest; as no one is guaranteed tomorrow.

This book has created the seed money to create my foundation The Healing Consciousness Foundation, a non-profit that provides healing and wellness services to breast cancer patients on their healing journey.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those at high risk for or diagnosed with breast cancer through holistic healing modalities, education, and life style changes. We provide the funding for services to empower them, and their families, to reduce their risk factors and realize their full healing potential.

Brian Weiss MD
Sometime during the mid-1980s when I was the Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, I awakened about six in the morning from a dream where I was giving a lec-ture, in this instance to a vast audience of psychiatrists. Upon awakening I wrote down the dream and later included it in my first book, Many Lives, Many Masters.

    Provides genuine wisdom and inspiration.

    Everyone should read this book. It truly provides genuine wisdom and inspiration. It helps one to move foward through things that were in the way of being happy, finding inner peace, and finding their lifes purpose. I've learned to except some things are just meant to be and life is a journey.

    Loved it.....full of wisdom and wit.

    This books reads like a chat with a very wise friend. A surgeon who integrates conventional medicine with alternative medicine, Dr. Dupree uses interesting and intriguing examples to guide the reader through her own journey of awakening. I liken finding a doctor with her philosophies to finding a needle in a haystack. Bravo! This book is insightful, inspiring - a real breath of fresh air - an overall pleasant read for anyone.

    Changed my everyday thinking!

    This is one of the most honest and touching journeys I have ever read. I felt like the author was having a conversation with just me. I laughed and cried, and then bought 15 copies to share with friends, family, and doctors who have treated me in the past. I hope Dr. Dupree continues to write as I am anxious for another book of hers to read!
