Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Nearly 10 years ago, Bays was diagnosed with a basketball-sized tumor in her uterus, which was causing internal bleeding. While her surgeon advised immediate removal, Bays, an alternative health-care worker, persuaded the doctor to allow her to try natural methods to reduce the size of the tumor. Bays, already reasonably well versed in relaxation techniques and homeopathic medicine, immediately sought out various noninvasive treatments including vitamins, a radical change in diet, massage and various other emotional and physical therapies. Miraculously, within a few months, the tumor disappeared. This dramatic recovery motivated Bays to change her life and teach others her healing practices. It was a difficult time for her; her husband of many years announced he was having an affair and eventually married his girlfriend. However, Bays rarely dwells on the negative; when she's angry, she admits it but manages to put her anger toward something productive. Like Deepak Chopra, on whose teaching her method is based, Bays wants people to focus on what she calls "the Journey" a path, she claims, to freedom and accomplishment that consists primarily of emotional reckoning and relaxation techniques. Bays's optimism will appeal to readers who are weary of traditional treatments that don't relieve emotional or physical hardships. However, other readers will tire of Bays's unmitigated certainty in the rightness of her approach. (Oct. 9)Forecast: Given the bestseller status of this book in England and Australia, planned publicity and Bays's audience from Journeywork (her international healing workshops), this title should receive lots of attention and word-of-mouth promo.

Review

"In this new edition of The Journey, we are again reminded that any healing journey is a journey of love. Brandon, after nearly twenty years of working with many thousands of people, serves as a master guide on that journey and condenses the essence of it in this seminal book. Each page is a reminder of where real healing—be it of the mind, body, or spirit—occurs." —Catherine Ingram, author of In the Footsteps of Gandhi, Passionate Presence, and A Crack in Everything.

“Brandon Bays is a remarkable soul, and her story of healing and reconciliation is a testament to the capabilities of human beings. Read this book and be inspired to take your own journey of healing.” —Anthony Robbins

“Brandon’s inspiring story is proof of the healing power that exists within every individual.” —New York Times bestselling author John Gray

“The Journey will inspire millions, not only those with physical challenges in their lives but those seeking spiritual understanding.” —Candace B. Pert, Ph.D., coauthor of Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d

I bought this book two days before I took the Journey seminar in Los Angeles on May 17 & 18, 2003. I loved the book; it was an easy read about a deep subject - getting in touch with who you really are - could sound like new age woo-woo to some but let me tell you this is the most cutting edge healing and freeing process available that I have found. I've taken tons of seminars and have been a healer myself for many years but this is a gift of astronomic proportions. If you are ready for it, the freedom you have been seeking is here. In my opinion - and it's only my opinion based on my actual experience - it is the most important work being done for individuals in pain on the planet at this time.

So many wonderful and courageous people share their experiences through books but the lingering question for me has always been: "how can I get to where YOU ARE from here?". I was truly surprised to find in this book a practical guide to moving myself from where I am now to where I want to be. If one picks up this kind of book and reads it to the end then one has to be reasonably intent on change and I wasn't disappointed (it was loaned to me by a friend who told me to read it to the end no matter what my 'mind' told me about it). I haven't tried all of the scripts for change that came with the book because I don't have a partner (or trusted enough 'other') to do all of the exercises with but I have ordered the audio tape and I have every confidence that I will have the courage to pursue what I truly want to be ... and being on the threshold of the second 50 years of my life I'm not playing games here! Just doing the 'sitting meditation' prescribed in the book (p.131) has been just lovely. :)

Format: Paperback
Mind/body therapists and energy therapists have been doing emotional release work by following the emotion to it's core for many years. Zukov mentioned this in the 80s when he released his book SEAT OF THE SOUL, Chopra, E. Tolle, and Dwyer are among many popular authors who describe the experience repeatedly in their writings. Yogis and therapists have written about this and many motivational workshops teach the technique. It's not new, but apparently was new to Bays who claims to have been a mind/body therapist for years before experiencing this. The fact that she worked for Anthony Robbins, personally knew Depak Chopra, and worked as a therapist but never experienced such a breakthrough before developing the tumor is incredible.

Each time Bays had a breakthrough to Source, she dramatically claims that the experience stayed with her forever, but as she continues to write, she continues to experience more conflict and more breakthroughs. From my own experience working with clients and myself, what happens is there is an amazing breakthrough into a deep sense of peace and oneness which then becomes integrated into the adult personality, but the individual continues to evolve mentally, emotionally and spiritually through conscious effort to attune to their feelings and transforming the negative ones by bringing them to light, or by feeling them to the depths of their Being. In other words, the high doesn't continue, it's an ongoing process in the evolution of consciousness.

If Brandon Bays has helped individuals with life threatening illness to recover their physical and emotional health, good for her and them. I don't think the structure she gives for applying her technique at the end of the book is particularly helpful, there are more simple techniques, such as EFT, or just sitting in the feeling and allowing Source to transform it.

This was a book I was given to read when my mother was diagnosed with cancer. Many of us think it is the end, but this book gave inspiration that cancer can be cured, and the mind controls the body. Brandon teels her own story of how she was able to overcome a tumour "the size of a basketball" by using self healing methods. The book does not become a martyrdom, as the author then goes on to explain how she then went about educating as many people as possible, to how cancer can be cured by the self.
The book also helps us to understand why cancer happens to some of us, by helping us to identify the emotional blocks we are having, which ultimately lead to cancer.
It clearly explains the lessons we must all learn, and how such cancers can not only be cured, but avoided in the first place.
My wife was diagnosed with stomach cancer when she was 30 and given 2 years to live. However,she was also able to overcome the cancer using self healing, reiki, and other "alternative" methods, and is now totally healthy, 10 yeas later. She then also set about helping others, and became a reiki practitioner and counsellor. Having also read the book, she to recommends it to anyone not only experiencing cancer, but to fmailies and loved ones of cancer sufferers to help them also understand what is going on.

There should be no question that you can't be healed. Wheter it is physical or emotional. THis book will give you the confirmation and if you still doubt, try a journey and you will experience it yourself. It is very clearly written and it is a book that gives you the way on HOW to do it yourself (with a partner). Try it and Experience it. Once you feel it you will not only do it more often, for you will feel so liberated, but you would want to share it with everybody you know! Thank you brandon!
