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)

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!

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.

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!

Format: Paperback
This is a poignant memoir of a woman who contracted polio at a tender age. We follow Deborah as she is drawn to the helping professions: as a psychotherapist, hospital social worker, and, subsequently, a holistic therapy practitioner. Along the way, in her quest for physical healing for her own condition, Deborah has treatment from an intuitive shamanic healer who also introduces her to Reiki. But this brings into question how she can square her traditional Catholic upbringing with her increasingly non-traditional spiritual journey. Her explanation of how she resolves this conflict is one of the many jewels in this book, and will be a source of comfort to others who are also torn between the doctrine of their family faith and an expanding belief system.
Each of the 33 chapters exemplifies a life lesson which Deborah has been instructed by Spirit to pass on to others. One which particularly resonates with me is lesson 13: `We must be responsible, active participants to create purposeful lives'. As Deborah states: `God does His part, and we have to do ours. The opposite of living responsibly is living a passive, victim-like life, waiting for things to get better, but not taking any steps to improve our lives.'
Deborah has a beautiful spirit - vibrant and courageous - and it shines through every page of this inspirational book.
