Junk theory and marketing:,
This review is from: The Power of Infinite Love & Gratitude: An Evolutionary Journey to Awakening Your Spirit (Paperback)
I'm disappointed in this book.
As far as I can tell, this book has a bunch of head-theory-stuff which a specific working healer uses which he has picked up from healing traditions across the planet and "snythensized" into a "theory". Not a simple or explanatory or even a useful theory, but a theory nonetheless.
So the guy is clearly a good healer; I believe his stories and the energy behind the words. But... so what? The work hasn't translated to the page.
In addition to the junk theory of a master practicioner, this also includes the only practical tip I can find: make sign language for "I love you" as a mudra over those you want to bless or heal. That's nice. It's like an affirmation from Louise; it feels good. Is it worth the price of the book? You decide.
So the right-brained side of this book is the power of love and gratitude. I find far more exciting and clear instructions on this stuff in dozens of other books, John Demartini and Louise L Hay among them. It seems to create a nice energy field buzz while you're reading it, but if there is no definite solution being offered, then it is agitprop for a repeat sale.
I shelved it after the first read. I don't feel ripped off because I got sucked in by the marketing and so it's my own responsibility to discern between fluff and substantial contributions.
On the subject of substance, I heartily recommend Caroline Myss and Donna Eden, both talented seers and healers with direct experience working with the models Weissman discusses, but ALSO gifted writers able to convey helpful tools.
