Editorial Reviews

Review

"Life Energy should appeal to anyone who wishes to enjoy life more and to gain greater control over their emotions so that they can maximize not only their own sense of well-being, but also their relations with those around them." -- Lois Henderson, BookPleasures.com

"I highly recommend this book to my seminar participants to assist them in helping others as well as themselves ... [it] has surely helped many people resolve psychological issues. Diamond's work has also inspired a radical shift in the way we understand psychological health and treatment." -- Fred P. Gallo Ph.D., author of Energy Tapping

“A rare blend of psychiatrist, traditional healer, and spiritual guide. He has combined an eclectic array of cultural and healing arts to address the intractable issues of the human soul...This is a man who speaks plainly and clearly about serious matters.”—Tom Monte, EastWest Journal

From the Back Cover

Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive explanation of how to unlock the hidden power within every one of us. This power, our LIFE ENERGY, determines our mental and physical states -- and Dr. John Diamond shows how to unleash this energy.

You can use LIFE ENERGY to:

  • Lead a more productive, creative, and happy life
  • Achieve your full potential
  • Deal positively with mental and physical stress
  • Reduce negative emotional states (hatred, anger, jealousy etc.) and increase positive emotions (love, faith, courage etc.)
  • Prevent and overcome illness and maintain good health
  • Look younger as you learn to erase the lines of self-doubt and unhappiness from your face
Dr. Diamond's discovery of how to release LIFE ENERGY is based on the twelve acupuncture meridians, each of which relates to a specific emotional state. Using the simple muscle test described in this book, you can assess these emotional states in yourself or anyone else. Then, by practising a short daily meditational program, you will keep your emotions and meridians balanced so that you achieve maximum LIFE ENERGY and enjoy mental and physical well-being and harmony every day of your life.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatry, a Foundation Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, American Holistic Medical Association, a Diplomate of the International College of Applied Kinesiology and is a Fellow and past President of the International Academy of Preventive Medicine. He is an Honorary Advisor to the Price-Pottenger Nutrition Foundation and their Japanese sister organization, the Koushikai Foundation.

One of the foremost senior holistic healers, Dr. Diamond's remarkable body of work, which includes his discovery of the link between the acupuncture meridians and the emotions, embraces a wide range of disciplines, the result of over fifty years of research and clinical practice. He began his career in psychiatry but expanded into holistic medicine, concentrating on the totality of the sufferer. In his fifty years of practice, he has increasingly recognized that there is within us a great healing force, Life Energy, the healing power within. With his increasing involvement with this concept, his research has led him to concentrate on the enhancement of the sufferer's Life Energy so as to actuate his own innate Healing Power.

Dr. Diamond has held numerous senior clinical and university teaching appointments in clinical psychiatry, the basic sciences and the humanities, and is a widely recognized bestselling author of over twenty books, including "Your Body Doesn't Lie," "Life Energy: Unlocking the Hidden Power of Your Emotions to Achieve Well-Being," "The Diamond Color Meditation," "Facets of a Diamond: Reflections of a Healer" and numerous books on music and healing. He has a large international following, and his books have been translated into a number of languages including German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, Japanese and Greek. Most recently "Your Body Doesn't Lie," "Life Energy" and his newly released "The Diamond Color Meditation" have become available in Russian.

Dr. Diamond lectures and teaches throughout the world and has presented over 1000 seminars, lectures and presentations to numerous medical associations, dental associations and societies as well as other professional organizations in the U.S. and abroad. He has conducted seminars in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Bologna, Tokyo, and London over the past four years.

Dr. Diamond now practices as a Holistic Consultant and blends his experience in medicine, psychiatry, complementary medicine, the humanities, holism, applied kinesiology, acupuncture theory, spirituality and the arts to help sufferers overcome problems relating to body, mind and spirit. He has also used Creativity for many years, regarding it as an essential and major component of healing, and has founded The Institute for Music and Health and The Institute for Life Energy and Creativity to train those interested in learning how to use the arts as a therapeutic modality. He resides in New York.

Format: Paperback
This book has been essential for me in developing a concept of the healing force in myself and in everybody -- Life Energy, as the title succinctly puts it -- and how this force can be activated. The specific details about our emotions -- and how they relate to the acupuncture system -- are fascinating. I particularly find helpful and thought-provoking Dr. Diamond's use of etymology (the origins of words) in pinpointing and evoking emotional states. The many photographs and humorous or touching anecdotes -- all these contribute to this highly readable, very therapeutic volume. I find Dr. Diamond's affirmations and the acupuncture points, which are clearly illustrated, wonderfully helpful in creating a daily routine for health and happiness. I have gone on to read many other books by Dr. Diamond, but this one remains basic and essential. I highly reccomend this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have bought many different energy based books, and used different energy based techniques, with great results.

Quantum Touch taught me the importance of breath and how to move energy, and the principles of resonance and entrainment. EFT taught me how to release negative emotions within two minutes by tapping on specific energy points. Reiki taught me the importance of healing touch, and using Universal Life Force energy effortlessly. Matrix Energetics taught me the importance of intention, and active imagination. I could go on, Qigong, Reiki, Touch of healing, Yoga, Tibetans, Huna..

So, imagine how gratifying it is to finally read a book by a mainstream psychotherapist, who uses energy testing, and affirmation, and intention as part of the healing process. The energy practice in this book is Kinesiology discovered by Dr George Goodheart.

Here we have a book which offers a complete energy system overview, and shows the connection between energy, emotions, and intention, and how your 12 Meridian Channels are tied to specific emotions, and specific organs. Because most of what goes on inside us is unconscious, it can be difficult to even discover what the problem may be, but energy testing a specific intention, can show which organ is affected, and a simple affirmation or intention shift can cause you to test strong.

In this book your Thymus is the master switch for your energy system. If someone's heart tests weak, this is connected to the emotion of anger. Sadness, fear, guilt, anger, and depression are connected to different organs. A series of simple tests and affirmations can bring everything back into balance.

This is definitely one of the best books I have read on Energy Medicine, if not the best.

Format: Paperback
This book is a revelation! How does qi (chi) flow through the body and what impedes its flow? Dr. Diamond's research reveals that our Life Energy is basically EMOTIONAL with each acupuncture meridian representing a different aspect of our emotional make-up. Positive emotions represent a healthy flow of Life Energy while negative emotions represent an impedence of this flow. How can we transform our lives? By transmuting our emotions. This concept is so simple and its ramifications so profound that it is a wonder that noone has elucidated it with such clarity up until now. I cannot recommend this book highly enough, both for the health-conscious reader and the holistic health care practitioner!

52 of 53 people found the following review helpful By Jane Raffen on June 13, 2003
Format: Paperback
In this ground-breaking book, Dr. Diamond presents his research findings concerning the links between specific acupuncture meridians and various precisely delineated emotional states. The connection between the acupuncture meridians and the organs of the body has been known about for centuries, and underlies much Chinese, Japanese and Korean traditional healing, and with Dr. Diamond's work connecting the meridians and the emotions we now have a link between the emotions and the physical body. Although it has been accepted that our emotional state can affect our physical well-being, and vice versa, Dr. Diamond's pioneering research is the first to examine this mechanism in detail.
This book should be required reading for anyone practicing, or hoping to practice the healing arts, either through conventional or through complementary medicine.

Format: Paperback
John Diamond, M.D. has written more than a dozen books specifically written to help the reader. Life Energy was his second major book, written and published after Your Body Doesn't Lie (which was also published as Behavioral Kinesiology).
The work covered in Life Energy is unique, showing the relationships between the acupunture meridian system and the emotions. Many since have written about the same correlation, often taking bits of Dr. Diamond's work and distorting it and often just getting it wrong. Dr. Diamond's work in this book is drawn from extensive expertise in medicine, psychiatry, the arts, and just as importantly is the knowledge and understanding of etymology.
An example of this expertise can be demonstrated by comparing the difference between depression and unhappiness. Medically, the two emotional states have been confused and interchanged often leading to anti-depressant drugs being prescribed to people who aren't physically nor even mentally depressed but are unhappy. Dr. Diamond clearly shows how unhappiness relates to the Liver meridian and how depression relates to the Thyroid meridian. He also goes into great detail outlining the precise emotional states that are called 'depression' and 'unhappiness' and the precise relationships that they have with the energy systems within the body and their eventual manifest correlations with specific organs in the body.
This book really stands head and shoulders above other allegedly similar books that have sprouted up since Life Energy was first published in 1985. As a reviewer, I am certainly biased - the author is my father - but the book stands on its own. By the way, it has been published in about seven different languages.
