To a skeptic, form a former skeptic!,
This review is from: You Can Heal Your Life (Paperback)
I can understand how people could be easily upset by this book at first read. I received this book as a gift from a coworker (which offended me), I wasn't suffering from any serious physical ailments or illnesses, and I was not a fan of "self-help" books!! I did not need help. The book itself just seemed too simple, new age mumbo jumbo... Several months later, I read the book again, and again. I skipped around & highlighted the parts that I felt were use full to me at the time. My boyfriend saw me reading the book & remarked that he hoped it helped with my depression. Me depressed? It wasn't my fault, it was him, my boss, my parents, my friend, my kids, everyone else, I was a victim!!!!
This is how it starts. In fact, things got worse before they got better, some things in my life were resistant to change. Those things soon faded & made room for the good things I have now. Two years later I am happily married (not to my old boyfriend), we started our own business, I am financially secure, close to my parents, have a new car, have a lovely home, full of happy people who love me, and I love myself.
This book helped me to stop worrying about how "other people" viewed me, and start changing how I viewed myself. I just ordered a copy for my mom. (at her request) She knows that this book was responsible for the changes I made, most of which she was adamantly opposed to. I know she (like myself) may call it nonsense at first. The truth is sometimes hard to accept, but I couldn't think of anyone who I'd rather share my "secret" with more than her, after all, I developed most of my negative thought patterns from her. We all have the lives we feel we deserve. Including me. I have also purchased The Power Is Within You which is the same concept, a little more in depth, & less about physical dis-ease, but also a good read. I recommend you start with You Can Heal Your Life (Gift Edition) This review is from a skeptic, to a skeptic. You won't be sorry!!
