This is a fabulous and inspired detailing of the experience of living your whole life with a health condition, which traditional western medicine did not cure or heal, and then opening up to the world of alternative medicine (shamans, energy healing, Reiki, chiropractors, and so on) and finding healing on so many levels.
I am approximately the same age as the author. I did not have polio or post-polio conditions. I've had PTSD since I was sixteen, which went misdiagnosed for years. When I was finally correctly diagnosed, I was given medications, which numbed me for twenty-five years. Three years ago (age 55), I got off all the meds because they no longer worked so there was no point. I didn't notice much difference in the quality of my life for a few weeks and then...
...oh the pain!!! I couldn't understand how I could have such severe physical pain and, yet, have no organic condition revealed by x-rays, blood tests, etc. I stumbled on the concept of buried emotional energy and a whole new world opened up from shamans to energy healers to...you name it, I tried it and it all helped. (Talk therapy for thirty years healed nothing.) I've actually been writing my own book about my journey, too (under a different author name) and hope to publish soon. I hope my book will be half as good as Ms. Lloyd's.
This is a marvelous book. It's well-written and quite thrilling!! Highly recommended.
As the first born I “should have carried on the family tradition of being a boy”, was consequently rejected and brain washed into believing myself to be “no good at or for anything”, and grew up absolutely petrified of my father. Deborah’s father died when she was very young and therefore, despite her physical disability, a large part of the burden of helping her mother with the eight younger siblings fell upon her. She further had a rather difficult relationship with her grieving mother.
Writing this book, Deborah was told, was an important part of her healing. I was told exactly the same thing when I started writing my first book, being assured by my holistic practitioner that publication (which at the time I imagined to be impossible!) was immaterial. Both of us have been blessed with supportive husbands, wonderful families of our own and numerous helpers on either side of the veil. Many years, and a great deal of therapy, later, I came to understand that I would never have become either a writer or a therapist had I not chosen the difficult circumstances into which to be born.Read more ›
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.
