Don P., a likable, soft-spoken, outwardly tough fireman of few words, was referred to me by his oncologist who thought it would be good for him to learn some imagery skills to help him cope with the lung cancer that had spread to his brain. He had six inoperable tumors in his brain and wanted to fight the cancer with every technique he could find. In our first session, I asked Don the 25 spiritual questions psychiatrists are afraid to ask, and Don volunteered, "I don't know if you'll believe this, but as I was coming out of surgery after the first cancer operation, I had a real vision. I saw this giant eagle that swooped down and picked me up in its claws. It carried me over hills and valleys finally landing at the top of a great cliff. It dropped me into its nest. I wasn't scared at all, even when the eagle began 'tearing out my guts.' I knew it meant he was eating the cancer. Suddenly a beautiful angel appeared over me, hovering in the air."
At this point Don broke down and began sobbing. "Why me?" he asked.
