Review

Authentic and moving. Deborah Lloyd shares a down to earth and intimate story that will inspire courage, trust, and help us remember that 'miracles' are our human birthright. An unforgettable journey into the deeper, and often-overlooked, aspects of healing. (Llyn Roberts, M.A., Author of Shamanic Reiki and Shapeshifting into Higher Consciousness) By sharing her own courageous experiences with spiritual and physical healing, Deborah Lloyd inspires us to take the next step on our journey. The message of this book is one that radiates hope and encouragement for anyone seeking a more profound relationship with inner peace. (Carole J. Obley, Author of I'm Still with You)

More About the Author

Half a century - from illness to healing. What were the steps, how did it happen? How do thoughts and beliefs create healing? Author Deborah Lloyd shares her transformative journey from being stricken with polio at age 3, to becoming a physically graceful and serene woman. Through her work as a Reiki Master and certified holistic therapy practitioner, she teaches others the importance of believing all things are possible and methods to create healing in their lives.
In Believe and it is True, Deborah takes us on an exciting journey. While appreciating her early traditional belief system, she shares her path of embracing a broader understanding of spirituality and alternative healing methods. Learning the energy healing method of Reiki, finding solace in connecting with deceased relatives, and working through deep emotional wounds with a shamanic intuitive healer are just a few of her experiences along this amazing path. These experiences are encased in thirty-three life lessons that Deborah discovered during this journey, lessons that will resonate with those seeking mind, body and spiritual healing. Her story reveals how every person has the ability to heal.

Format: Paperback
I wish i had read this when i was in my thirties. Deborah Lloyd honestly tracks her healing journey after juvenile polio in a way that shows both her vulnerabilty and strength. I was particularly interested in the way she managed to merge her organised religion with her growing shamanic healing, Reiki and proof of spirit connection. this was an issue for me in my thirties that led to much angst along the way. i did not succeed and had to choose my new spiritual path. it is a dilemma I see often and will recommend this book not just for its story of her healing but also for her honesty in dealing with conflicting viewpoints. a wonderful read for anyone on a healing journey!

Format: Paperback
We all have 'baggage' that we carry with us in life, and this author's baggage and main challenge was polio, which she contracted as a child. In this heartwarming biography/inspirational story she shares with readers how she found the courage to explore spiritual practices, from Reiki to shamanic healing, and more. In an attempt to follow her heart and discover - despite her catholic upbringing - that Spirit (or God, for those who prefer this more traditional term) can manifest in many untraditional ways and help heal those who seek to see beyond what they've been taught as young children.

Deborah Lloyd shares not only her life experience but also her life lessons, that can be applied in many situations - and she inspired me to further explore different spiritual practices that I was only vaguely aware of before reading this book. I am a political writer, turned spiritual writer, and am also a skeptic who needs grounded evidence in order to be convinced that things really are what they appear to be. The author provided plenty of 'grounded spirituality' which resonated with me and allowed me not only to enjoy and benefit from reading her book, but to also recommend it to anyone who faces challenges in life and is not afraid to explore spirituality in order to grow and overcome - not only their difficulties, but also their fears.

Format: Paperback
The first sentence of this book is "This book is unique" and it is; as any first person account of personal healing would be. Deborah Lloyd tells how she was struck with polio at age 3, underwent ligament and muscle transplants at age 7, and was diagnosed with post-polio syndrome as an adult. The 33 chapters document Lloyd's exploration of various alternative healing methods which improved her mental, physical, and spiritual states, and each chapter concludes with what she learned and wishes to communicate to readers.

Believe and it is True is interesting not only for the life lessons within it but in documenting Lloyd's path from the spiritual and medical mainstream to the alternative side roads which improved her life. Working as a psychotherapist led her to hiring a Reiki master, which in turn led to yoga, meditation, journaling, spirit work, and other healing methods which challenged her traditional Catholic upbringing. Eventually Llyod became a Reiki master herself and incorporated its methods into her work. As she says in her own words, "My story is simply one of a life journey. And, like all life journeys, it has been filled with ups and downs, sorrows and joys. It is an ongoing journey, one that is not yet finished."

Believe and it is True is a great read for anyone else in a similar healing process, or anyone who needs an introduction to alternative healing and spiritual methods written in an easy, conversational tone.

I loved this book. Having chronic illness in my past, Deborah's story hit especially close to home. I couldn't believe the trauma that happened to her family, just in the first part of the book. I was bracing myself for the next thing as I turned each page. But, the way this author moved through that and transformed her journey made up for it. I love how she followed the path that felt right to her and ultimately came out shining. I highly recommend this book!

I have spent days trying to figure out how to write a review that does this book justice. I decided I am not going to go into a description of the book because the other reviewers have done a fine job of that.

Instead, I am going to focus on how the book affected me. One word that comes to mind is transformative. I may never be able to really articulate why this book affected me so strongly and deeply. But, I can share that while reading it, I found myself crying at times and feeling surges of energy coursing through my veins. Usually, if I feel such a surge of energy it is when I have an idea that I can't wait to act on. This was different. It was more like the excitement of discovering something that truly resonates with you in the most unexpected place.

Just to put this in some context, I do get excited when I read something that really touches me, or opens up a new way of thinking to me. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert had that effect on me a few years back. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee had that effect on me when I read it as a young girl back in 1960. Several ee cummings poems excited me the first time I read them and have continued to do so on each re-reading. There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem by Wayne Dyer opened up a new belief system for me. Train Your Mind,Change Your Brain by Sharon Begley gave me the same tears and surge of energy as Believe It and It Is True. Actually, I can truthfully say that Begley's book changed my life in a variety of ways.

I have a strong feeling that Deborah Lloyd's book will do the same! It is an engaging and humble narrative of her quest for physical healing and the spiritual growth that resulted from it. But for me, it is so much more. I just wish I could figure out how to do it justice!
