Quality Life Here on Earth,
This review is from: Peace, Love and Healing: Bodymind Communication & the Path to Self-Healing: An Exploration (Paperback)
What's in your mind is often quite literally, or "anatomiically" what is in your body. It's called mind over matter. Anything that offers hope has the potential to heal, including thoughts, suggestions and symbols. Feelings are chemical and can kill or cure; there is not 'false hope.'
Sometimes, iit is a person who is the cause of internal healing because a significant change in their life prior to the miracle. An existential shift occurred in them (call it love for and by the other person), and for the first time in their lives they are truly living. For them, it was a new beginning using peace, love and healing together. I call them angels even though they are real humans in the right place at the right time and one's sixth sense, your healing system, accepts them. Don't internalize whatever you do, as it is self-defeating. The goal is peace of mind, which can give your healing system a true "live" message. Love, joy, and egolessness are aids to achieve peace of mind. Worry is your enemy because of its destructive power to play havoc with your emotions by creating a viscious circle of pain and doubt.
By sharing your concerns with people who really care about your welfare, emoting allow their feelings to express their fears, optimism, and desires. Hence by doing so they gave their bodies "live" messages. Writing the encounters down in a diary allowed them to rethink possibilities, a simple form of cognitive retraining. The events themselves remained the same but lost their destructive power. Dr. Blake admitted that he believes in faith healing.
Working with the healing system that constitutes a sort of superintelligence within us can eliminate stress which harms the immune system. The brain is not just for thinking; it is a survival organ -- thanks, Mark. Keeping a daily journal recording your feelings creates a more active immune system and less stress. Even after they stopped keeping the journals, the immune system remained more active for up to six months.
To be exceptional doesn't always mean having to perform extraordinary feats. It's your attitude about living and loving which makes you exceptional. Love is the miracle. Love makes us immortal in the only true sense of the word. We all need a purpose in life. Purpose, like hope, is physiologic. Some people seem to have limitless amounts of courage as they find new paths to healing and love.

Your post totally confused me. What the heck are you trying to say? It sounds like you agree 100% with Dr. Siegel, but you only gave his book 3 stars, which is quite confusing. Why didn't you ever get to the point? Your post seems to just be you rambling on about how you can change things if you believe you can, which, of course, it the point of the book, but you never got to the point about whether or not you liked the book, nor why you only gave it 3 stars!?

This supposed review confused me, too. This woman was not talking about the book [by Bernie Siegal] that she was supposed to be reviewing, but offering her own opinion about the subject of self-healing. And, yes, she gave the book three star, but she does not back it up with anything - just rambles on and on about the subject of healing. Then she thanks 'Mark'! Mark? Whose Mark. She also mentions Dr. Blake. Was she actually reading the book she was supposed to be reviewing? What she has to say does not in any way make me want to buy the book being reviewed.
