Marianne Williamson made me cry

Marianne Williamson gave me the best advice I have every got with my writing. I went on stage and told my story. I wept and sobbed. The audience cheered and all stood up with a standing ovation.

I love Marianne and her work. It was a real joy to meet up with her in London. She was delivering a talk about resilience in challenging times, miracles and what steps we can take now to make this world a better place on the individual and collective political levels. She is a bright light in our times and talks about subjects so powerfully.

I was up on stage with her in London talking to the assembled audience about my journey through brain cancer and out the other side. I told the story of my healing from cancer and how the doctors described the results as a miracle. I cried when I told the story. The rest of the room, thousands of people, also cried. When I finished, there was a standing ovation and lots of whoops and clapping from the crowd.

It was the first time that I had told my story to a big audience. It made me realise how inspiring this story is and how I must keep talking about it and out to the world in a book, film and with talks. Inspiring people that healing, even from a disease where i was given a 2 per cent chance of staying alive, is possible. I did it.

After my talk there was a long line of people wanting to talk with me about how this happened and find out more.

Marianne gave me some powerful advice that I will never forget. I told her that I was wondering how to write this story for a mainstream audience and make it so that it was palatable and understandable. People get triggered over healing stories and claims of curing cancer. She told me write it exactly as you it is and how you experienced it. Do not water it down for mainstream taste. Just tell your story and those who want to read it will come. Thank you Marianne. Wise words that have changed everything for me in the writing process. I am finishing the book now with a new and upgraded perspective on the story.
