Review

Authentic and moving. Deborah Lloyd shares a down to earth and intimate story that will inspire courage, trust, and help us remember that 'miracles' are our human birthright. An unforgettable journey into the deeper, and often-overlooked, aspects of healing. (Llyn Roberts, M.A., Author of Shamanic Reiki and Shapeshifting into Higher Consciousness) By sharing her own courageous experiences with spiritual and physical healing, Deborah Lloyd inspires us to take the next step on our journey. The message of this book is one that radiates hope and encouragement for anyone seeking a more profound relationship with inner peace. (Carole J. Obley, Author of I'm Still with You)

Oh how I love this book, which I will reread. I've also ordered a paperback copy for my daughter-in-law.

This is a fabulous and inspired detailing of the experience of living your whole life with a health condition, which traditional western medicine did not cure or heal, and then opening up to the world of alternative medicine (shamans, energy healing, Reiki, chiropractors, and so on) and finding healing on so many levels.

I am approximately the same age as the author. I did not have polio or post-polio conditions. I've had PTSD since I was sixteen, which went misdiagnosed for years. When I was finally correctly diagnosed, I was given medications, which numbed me for twenty-five years. Three years ago (age 55), I got off all the meds because they no longer worked so there was no point. I didn't notice much difference in the quality of my life for a few weeks and then...

...oh the pain!!! I couldn't understand how I could have such severe physical pain and, yet, have no organic condition revealed by x-rays, blood tests, etc. I stumbled on the concept of buried emotional energy and a whole new world opened up from shamans to energy healers to...you name it, I tried it and it all helped. (Talk therapy for thirty years healed nothing.) I've actually been writing my own book about my journey, too (under a different author name) and hope to publish soon. I hope my book will be half as good as Ms. Lloyd's.

This is a marvelous book. It's well-written and quite thrilling!! Highly recommended.

Deborah's story is insightful and compelling. I enjoyed and learned from her thirty-three life lessons, and I appreciated how her story unfolded to reveal each lesson at the appropriate time. I personally plan to investigate Reiki and yoga for myself because of reading this book. I really appreciated the variety of healing modalities that the author explored and shared here. If you are feeling "stuck" and hindered by old physical or emotional wounds, I can't suggest this book strongly enough. Some lessons you may already know, but they will be good reminders. Other lessons will be eye-opening and transformative if you let them. Whatever your faith background is, this book is an inspiring approach to increasing your growth and spirituality. I especially liked her thoughts on working through old emotions, the ability to make choices, and her gentle urging to say "yes" to more of the God-given opportunities out there. "Believe and it is True" has universal appeal and insight for readers. Get this book today and post her thirty-three life lessons on your cupboard door or refrigerator. I believe her book will transform the lives of many people.

My father died in 1978, yet I have a feeling that it may have been him who sent me this book to read. Like the author, I was the eldest of a large Catholic family and, while Deborah Lloyd was stricken with polio at the age of three, my father almost died from it when he was nineteen and in his first year at Cambridge. After a year’s sick leave, he returned to finish his degree and then had a highly successful career as a hospital administrator. Deborah was left with damage to both her legs, my father with a totally paralysed right leg, and both were told that the only sport open to them would be swimming. Deborah has also been very successful both education and career-wise.
As the first born I “should have carried on the family tradition of being a boy”, was consequently rejected and brain washed into believing myself to be “no good at or for anything”, and grew up absolutely petrified of my father. Deborah’s father died when she was very young and therefore, despite her physical disability, a large part of the burden of helping her mother with the eight younger siblings fell upon her. She further had a rather difficult relationship with her grieving mother.
Writing this book, Deborah was told, was an important part of her healing. I was told exactly the same thing when I started writing my first book, being assured by my holistic practitioner that publication (which at the time I imagined to be impossible!) was immaterial. Both of us have been blessed with supportive husbands, wonderful families of our own and numerous helpers on either side of the veil. Many years, and a great deal of therapy, later, I came to understand that I would never have become either a writer or a therapist had I not chosen the difficult circumstances into which to be born.

This book reconnected me with the whole world of guides and healing energy. I've never really lost it, but Lloyd's book brought me back to it with conviction. I agree with so much of what has already been written. There is little that I can add other than this is an easy read—and a compelling one. I had no interest in the author's struggles to reconcile her Catholicism and her healing journey. I just kept thinking, "Hang it up!" But, she was not obtrusive about her faith and it was easy to gloss over those religious-struggle paragraphs.

We all have 'baggage' that we carry with us in life, and this author's baggage and main challenge was polio, which she contracted as a child. In this heartwarming biography/inspirational story she shares with readers how she found the courage to explore spiritual practices, from Reiki to shamanic healing, and more. In an attempt to follow her heart and discover - despite her catholic upbringing - that Spirit (or God, for those who prefer this more traditional term) can manifest in many untraditional ways and help heal those who seek to see beyond what they've been taught as young children.

Deborah Lloyd shares not only her life experience but also her life lessons, that can be applied in many situations - and she inspired me to further explore different spiritual practices that I was only vaguely aware of before reading this book. I am a political writer, turned spiritual writer, and am also a skeptic who needs grounded evidence in order to be convinced that things really are what they appear to be. The author provided plenty of 'grounded spirituality' which resonated with me and allowed me not only to enjoy and benefit from reading her book, but to also recommend it to anyone who faces challenges in life and is not afraid to explore spirituality in order to grow and overcome - not only their difficulties, but also their fears.

Daniela I. Norris, author of 'On Dragonfly Wings: a skeptic's journey to mediumship' and 'Collecting Feathers: tales from The Other Side'
