This book packs in an amazing amount of information in under 300 pages (some of these are lists of feelings and physical symptoms.) It is written very simply - no rocket science here. It addresses the origin of emotions and approaches emotions on the scientific, medical, and spiritual levels. This book appealed to both my wanting to know how my feelings came about and how to properly label them and my need for a simple tool or meditation to release the negative unresolved feelings which have keep me in my destructive patterns.
I wish I had read this book when I was a teenager after an abusive upbringing, or while I was in college unmotivated to reach my full potential, or before I made the decision to marry the wrong person. I am glad that I found it in time to work through some of the issues of my divorce and to continue on my quest for personal growth.
As the book explains the root to finding all of those answers is here - and shows you how to look inside yourself in a loving and compassionate way. It reiterates something we all know and easily forget - you are the truth you seek!
Feelings Buried Alive Never Die is a book that explains in 21 chapters how emotional health impacts physical health. This is something often overlooked and downplayed in mainstream medicine, even though there are countless scientific experiments (which she shares) that prove how the electrical current of your emotions affect the function of your organs and nervous system. In the first few chapters Karol explains what emotions, feelings, thoughts, and beliefs are - as well as how your childhood experiences develop these aspects of life. Too many of us suppress and bottle up our emotions without realizing that they will stick with us.
One unique section of her book is the "Probable Feelings Causing Illness" chart that covers over 200 ailments (like candidiasis, anxiety, and liver problems) with exercises to help you work through and release their related feeling.
These exercises are amazing. My favorite chapter, chapter 17, addresses feelings and beliefs that are related to success. In it, she matches negative feelings with positive scripts to read aloud to uplift your mood and put you in a space of confidence and self-love. As she says in the book, "It can literally take the slums out of you, and then you change your environment."
I truly believe that by earnestly practicing the principles in Feelings Buried Alive Never Die, a person can overcome their emotional baggage and achieve major healing. In the months around my wedding engagement I had a terrible mix of illness and depression all because I was scared that lust for a friend would ruin my marriage with my true love. Things were ugly :/ But, by learning how to identify and release my emotions, I experienced a miraculous recovery and lived through my engagement and wedding, happily, with both men in their rightful places in my life.
The bottom line is that the information on this book should be shared with everyone! It's a top ten book for me, absolutely. If you found my review helpful, I would also recommend that you check out: Louise Hayes, Impossible Love: Or Why the Heart Must Go Wrong, and We: Understanding the Psychology of Romantic Love.
I too, found the Birthing /Inutero stuff a little overdone, but the rest of the book and it's REAL WORLD RESULTS make those minor gripes an afterthought. The "Script" is just flat-out powerful.I don't really understand how or why it works, and I don't care because I feel so happy and grateful for my life, and all the beauty that is all around me, every second.. and maybe, for the first time in my life,I'm happy just being ME; just as I am right now. Yes, I still have many things I want to improve in my life,and I will have those things because I finally feel I DESERVE to be happy. I really love how I feel when I use the script, because any bad feeling I carry,I address then and there,if possible...then, in a real suble way, say an hour or so later, I kinda "notice" that I'm not feeling that "bad" feeling...It just evaporated;gone. I like the fact that you don't have to "try" anything; it just works for you. This book will always be with me. This book should be required reading for Pre-teens and especially High Schools. It would save people so much Pain. There's a lot lot of lip service paid to self love;Karol Truman FINALLY give us a tool that is easy(Deceptively so)and works.
Bless You, Karol Truman.
