This review is from: Soul Wisdom: Practical Soul Treasures to Transform Your Life (Soul Power) (Paperback)Here I talk about the book and my experience at a Dr Sha weekend workshop:
This is old style religion with an eastern flair: your soul is burdened by karma and you need salvation. While the book starts with the statements we are all healers and are able to heal ourselves, there is a great disconnect as it moves into 'only Dr Sha can help you' with his divine transmissions and treasures. Work really hard, pay lots of money and you will possibly (and very slowly) get off the wheel of karma. All the while Dr Sha insists he is here to "serve you". Dr Sha is a skilled healer and many people do feel better after his healing work but the tendrils of enmeshment are all too strong.
How sad that people are taken in by this. He is a great salesman. The money part isn't even mentioned until you are signing up for the "gifts". He does initially offer free gifts only if you register on his website so they can bring you into the fold and solicit you constantly via email. His followers really believe this and are ardent in their testimony. They worship him like a guru.
There are some positives: the power of chanting, the healing of t'ai chi and chi gung. But too much guilt and insistence that we are running out of time and if you wait, it will be too late and you will be stuck forever. Too much bowing down to Dr Sha as our savior and direct link to God.
We are empowered to do our own spiritual growth. If we focus on the positive and nurture those aspects of each person, we will grow the positives. If we focus on our fear, we will grow our lack. If we believe we need teachers like Dr Sha to pull us through, we will. If we believe we can directly access God, Goddess, the spirits and the transmissions of love and healing, then we will. You are a creator and you are powerful. Don't believe this book.
