A debut mind/body guide that advises people to control their own thoughts to take charge of their health, wealth, and more.
After taking a course that taught her “our thinking causes everything that we experience,” Harris (Healing Alcoholism Invasion Revealed, 2013, etc.) says that she came to believe that her son Michael’s glaucoma “was caused by my feeling of being pressured (controlled, domineered) by my mother-in law.” By finally taking a firm stand against her, Harris says that she healed Michael “by taking an action that changed the way I felt….Now I felt in control.” In this guide, the author, who founded GodSpirits United, a company that aims to help people recover from medically incurable illnesses, provides commentary and instruction on how to live out her philosophy: “reverse your feeling to get your healing.” She encourages readers to focus positively on their bodies as “an organ-ized system,” consisting of “seven major Virtues,” divided among what she calls “male” (heart, stomach, and lungs) and “female” (liver, kidneys, blood, and brain) organs. She also discusses “energy treatments,” including tapping into chakras, and urges readers be open to “illumination,” or life’s finer energies, and reject the “invasion” of damaging thoughts and behaviors. She concludes with a chapter on manifesting money as a reflection of “what you believe you deserve.” Harris embraces a healing ideology that will likely be too far from the medical mainstream for many people. That said, she still offers an engaging blend of positive psychology tips and varied cultural references (including a reference to Jesus Christ’s mind/body method of healing) in this self-help tome. Her upfront mention of family tragedies, including Michael’s death in a car accident at 18 and her elder son’s suicide at 48, are initially shocking, yet Harris powerfully expands on these topics later in a heartfelt plea to fight addiction and depression.
This book espouses some philosophy that will seem far out to many readers, but it also offers many positive life tips.
