She was very weak as my sister and I helped her from her hospital bed to a chair. Earlier a friend had visited briefly. The full moon was shining through her living room window where her hospital bed was set up. She had made a remark how bright it was that night.
We had called the family to come… two brothers, one from Texas had started his journey two days ago, and a sister had come for what may have been a final visit. She had struggled severely the two months because the cancer was growing, throughout her body. Her mind stayed focused and always was in control. She had finally accepted Hospice when there was no other choice.
She was grateful for her motorcycle girlfriends who stopped to visit three weeks earlier. She was grateful for her sister who was a nurse and stayed 24-7. She could help with medicine and procedures, including the oxygen tank, to assure comfort and rest. I came to help as often as I was able.
Her spirit came to me in a dream three nights earlier and said “Thank you for coming to help me. I asked her “How will I know what to write in the book?” (We had talked about her writing a book. When she got so very sick I offered to help her write it). She simply answered, “It’s in the bucket” I know now that was to say it was all taken care of, not to worry.
Now as we were helping her from her bed to a chair, she stood and looked at me and asked “Can I come to your house? My training with Alzheimer’s reminded me to agree and respond to her feelings more than what she was asking. So I answered “Yes you can come to my house”. She smiled a big smile and seemed very happy that she had a place to go. No more was said.
Just recently I realized what had really taken place that evening, before she took her last breath.
He spirit was finished in her physical body, but there was so much more to do… I had given her spirit permission to come to my house! I believe that was the beginning of my mission with Healthy Girls Breast Oil and Lady Lymph with self breast massage education.

Oh Joyce, how poignant a story this is. And so powerful in the very gentle way it just slipped into your life and shifted your focus into a whole new line of work and sharing with the world. I adore how the Universe works in perfect order and how people like you listen and hear it.
Thank you for your comment Lynn. Yes it really did shift my focus into a new line of work with passion to share it with the world!
Thank you, Joyce, for documenting one of the most important experiences of our lives, transition to the next realm. Thank goodness you and your family was there to hold the space of love and support so that that transition was a (relatively) gentle one.
Joyce, you are a truly exceptional spirit. Every post of yours that I read just calms and feeds my soul. I am so grateful you are on this planet with me.
Thank you for your kind words Dorine. I’m happy to be able to share what I have experienced because I believe we all learn from each other and their stories as well as our own.
Joyce thank you for sharing this beautiful experience with us. As I read it there was a true sense of calm, peace and love. What a gift you have and are now sharing, I love and respect what you are doing with your breast cancer support and we need to get this out so that everyone knows it is available.
Do you have a blog that goes through these blends explaining the properties of the oils and the benefits they give?
Blessings to you xxx
