Review - All Is Well
Disclaimer: I received this book free from Hay House, Inc. in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any form of compensation.
I have always been an avid reader of Louise L. Hay. I firmly believe that the energy you put forth through thought and action has a direct result on your health and life overall. So when I heard that she was writing All Is Well with a licensed physician, I was ecstatic. Essentially, this is the Heal Your Body book for this day and age. It plays a very similar role and function as that original book that was written back in the early 1980s. However, there is a ton of more detail and research that has been added.
First off, make sure you take the quiz in the beginning. This will help show you the areas you need to focus on the most. I advise reading the whole book, but placing an emphasis on the chapters that you scored the highest in. I need to place my most emphasis on chapters 6, 8 and 10. The reason that I say to read the whole book is because our bodies and spirits are an interdependent web. You can't just work on the weakest links. You need to work on all of it while ensuring that you pay specific attention to the weakest areas.
I love the fact that they show how important it is to integrate the alternative healing practices in with our modern medical technology. You should never walk away from a treatment that a licensed physician prescribes for you in hopes that an alternative healing practice will solve it all. There is no one stop shop for healing. Everything needs to come together in perfect balance in order for healing to take place.
The authors divide the body up into various emotional centers. They demonstrate how your beliefs can create an imbalance in each emotional center. They also then tell you what you can do to help yourself straighten out these imbalances.
The ideas that are presented in this book are so spot on. For example, they say that thyroid issues are because people are humiliated and don't always relate what they want to others. This is so true for me. I am always afraid to speak things for various reasons. For example, I could be with a few people and there is a conversation about topic A. I may have something that I want to chime in about, but before I get the chance, someone has changed the subject of the conversation. I am too embarrassed to go back to the original conversation and add my 2 cents worth since the topic has changed and "the moment has passed". So instead, I will hold it in. And I will feel embarrassed because then it seems like I have nothing worthwhile to say since I don't add anything to the conversation and just remain quiet. I have been attempting to change this. However, since I am pretty socially awkward, I don't feel that I can "pull it off" as smoothly as everyone else. Which of course leads to more embarrassment. So yea, that is definitely an area that I need to work on.
