Mastering the Addicted Brain by Walter Ling MD

Mastering the Addicted Brain by Walter Ling MD

In all probability there are very few of us who can, with hand on heart, declare that they are free of any sort of addiction. Everyone carries a crutch of one form or another – one that we lean on for help and support when the challenges of life exceed our capacity to deal with them. Neuropsychologist Walter Ling MD.

Reclaiming Your Body by Suzanne Scurlock-Durana

Reclaiming Your Body by Suzanne Scurlcok-Durana

If you gave your body a voice, what do you think it would say to you? Maybe it would be happy and pleased with the way that you treat it each day; or perhaps it would tell you that it was sad and angry that the messages it sends to you regarding its state of health are regularly being ignored. As a society we are not used to the idea that we can engage deeply with our bodies and understand something about its innate wisdom. We tend to get doctors and other…

The Resonance Effect by Carolyn McMakin

The Resonance Effect by Carolyn McMakiThe Resonance Effect by Carolyn McMakin

In 1946 Australian osteopath Harry Van Gelder bought an osteopathic practice. As part of the equipment that came with it he found an odd machine that was built in 1922. Gelder tried out the contraption and found that it had the ability to resonate at a number of different set frequencies. These could be applied in healing and so he began to travel around the United States and Canada using the machine to heal the ailments of patients. In 1981 George Douglas, a doctor of chiropractic, studied under Harry Van…

Subtle Energy Techniques by Cyndi Dale

Subtle Energy Techniques by Cyndi Dale

There is no doubt that the previously deep-seated divisions between materialism and spirituality have eroded greatly over the past couple of decades. This has mainly come about through their joint acceptance of the premise that everything in our physical world is formed from energy. Where the two belief structures do differ is in the fact that all forms of spirituality are heavily invested in the idea that reality can be moulded through the intervention of consciousness upon it. Whilst science accepts everything is composed of minutely-sized atomic particles with no…

The Stress Solution by Arthur P Ciaramicoli

The Stress Solution by Arthur P Ciaramicoli

Although stress levels within our society are rising at an exponential rate it is a subject about which most people are woefully uneducated. This is an inevitable consequence of a culture and medical profession that finds it infinitely more convenient to prescribe chemicals of one type or another rather than spend any significant amount of time getting to the heart of any health issue. Arthur P Ciaramicoli is a licensed clinical psychologist who has been on the faculty of Havard Medical School as well as chief psychologist of Metrowest Medical…

The Art of Spiritual Healing by Keith Sherwood

The Art of Spiritual Healing by Keith Sherwood

Energy healing is founded upon a number of core principles. These include a working knowledge of the human aura, the way in which chakras or vortices of energy regulate energy flow and most importantly the universal principles that determine the way that energy manifests and operates in our lives. Working knowledge of how all of these dynamics inter-operate used to be the provenance of advanced adepts with many years training but the whole subject – like so many other areas of spirituality, has been accessible to us all.

Finding Freedom in Illness by Peter Fernando

Finding Freedom in Illness by Peter Fernando

How to Heal Yourself When No One Else Can by Amy B Scher

How to Heal Yourself When No One Else Can by Amy B Scher

The single most astounding aspect to spiritual work is the gradual realization that we control more aspects and elements of our lives, and to a far greater extent, than we had previously thought to be the case. One of the core tenets of metaphysical beliefs is that we can control our reality – at least to a degree, through the way that we think about and choose to perceive our world. We not only have an immediate impact upon the external elements of our world but also on our internal as…

A Short Path to Change by Jenny Mannion

A Short Path to Change by Jenny Mannion

The quality of life that we experience is not determined by how much money we have, the possessions we accrue or the social status that we hold. Instead it is set by the level of physical health that we enjoy. The human body is, by its very nature, a complex and intricate system which does go wrong and breakdown sometimes. The natural course of action is that most sufferers of an ailment will consult a medical professional when difficulties arise and seek the administration of drugs in order to return…

EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique TM, is an innovative healing technique that is proving to be an effective practice for the healing of emotional and psychological problems that have become stored as dead energy within the human body.

Clearing Emotional Clutter by Donald Altman

Clearing Emotional Clutter by Donald Altman

It is widely accepted within the spiritual community that ‘living in the light’ effectively means ‘traveling in the light’ – ‘light’ in this context referring to both spiritual power via our Sun and to the process of carrying as little psychospiritual baggage as possible. For many people the act of traveling the path of life completely uncluttered is a an optimum condition to be in but despite our best efforts there are invariably times when we are faced with deeper issues – the residue of problems that arise from unresolved…

Neurodynamics by Theodore Dimon

Neurodynamics by Theodore Dimon

Neurodynamics is a term that has been coined by Theodore Dimon to describe the psychophysical workings of the human body. The word is, as the author explains in his book ‘Neurodynamics::The Art of Mindfulness in Action’, closely related to the rapidly expanding world of neuroscience as well as to the ability of all of us to improve the functioning of our bodies through a more conscious awareness of its operation. A New Approach The human mind, to which the study of neuroscience first addresses itself, is the mechanism through which…

The Wild Edge of Sorrow by Francis Weller

Emptiness, grief and sorrow are, as we are all too aware, significant aspects to personal loss and separation from anything in life that we nurture and cherish. But what of those times in our lives when we feel inexplicably empty of spirit, devoid of life and drained of emotional energy—times during which there appears to be no particular reason or explanation for the way that we feel. We live in a society in which it has become very easy for the medical or psychiatric profession to diagnose depression in patients…

The best time to heal yourself, or so they say, is when you are well. It is true that, by the time illness sets in, the dis-ease is already firmly established and creating disharmony within deeper levels of the psyche. Therefore, the key to attaining good health is to engage with healing energies at the point at which they are working to maintain the body’s essential processes. The question that you will be asking at this point, “how do you achieve this?”, underpins this self-healing publication by energy healer and…

Hunger Hope and Healing by Sarahjoy Marsh

Eating is one of the most enjoyable personal and social activities that we do. And yet few things make people as miserable as being overweight. We are advised of the dangers of obesity and its current worldwide epidemic shows no signs of abating.

A Book of Miracles by Bernie S. Siegel

Every minute of every day a miracle of one kind or another takes place. Without their intervention in our lives, life itself would not only be dreary and predictable, we would have no clear evidence that the Divine actually exists. Some of the most miraculous events occur within the sphere of physical well-being. These invariably take the form of unexpected and seemingly spontaneous improvements in a person’s health—even after the medical profession has diagnosed a terminal disease and effectively given up on them. Dr Bernie S Siegel was once a…
