Reading this book to learn how better to teach intuition (see "Practical Intuition" Laura Day, for one good way).

Turns out to be a very dense book linking chakras, body systems, and different ways of intuiting. E.g. your stomach might clench when you apprehend a certain illness in someone else; your hands tremble as you try to force yourself to do something that maybe is best left alone. INtuition as language of the body. Memory in body.

i can't judge how well Mona Lisa integrates broad knowled

Hmm. . . interesting ... This book is not as hokey as one might expect it to be. Just to keep your mind open and/or to open it more, it is worth considering if and how our bodies store emotions and memories. Could certain kinds of emotions/memories cause certain health problems? By the time you read this book, you will likely strengthen your belief that our bodies speak to us if/when we take the time to listen. The author is an MD and a PhD who is also able to read people's bodies via a phone ca ...more

Very insightful. I'm so thirsty to learn more! Perfect blend of psychology and biology, with hints of pseudoscience/metaphysics. I enjoyed it a lot.

Intuition is the ability to make a correct determination on the basis of inadequate data

We are all intuitive

Our dreams tell us things

Need both Left and right parts of our brain to tap into intuition most effectively

Right brain is intuitive and left brain needs to piece information together and articulate it.

we need a balance between them

memories are stored in the brain and the body

Memories we retain have an emotional charge to them

If you want to get a sense of intuition and how to recognize it t

This book discusses the ways that our bodies communicate to us through the illnesses we manifest. The more in touch we can be with our intuition, the sooner we can hear the messages. The more we choose to ignore them, the louder the messages will get to get our attention. There's a chapter for each chakra and what illnesses are related to weakness or disturbance at each chakra. Everyone has intuition that comes to them in different ways. The book is less about how to awaken and develop your intu ...more

Not exactly what I thought it was going to be, but an interesting read just the same.

How many stars to give? Did I "really like" this book or was it just "okay"? I really liked the information in it, outlining the chakras, or emotional centers of the body, and how they can influence physical health. I also really liked the idea that the author is a medical intuitive and can sense imbalance in the body or chakras. However, sometimes this book was just okay. I found the writing style a bit self-conscious at points and the author was overbearing and drove me a little crazy. So I "l ...more

I am a strong believer of tuning in to one's intuition thus my interest in books on the subject. The author of this book is an internationally known medical intuitive and even though she admits she can't flat out heal people through her intuitive practice, she does point out ways one can increase awareness to increase the healing process.

Recommends it for: Katie, Christa, anybody
What I loved about this book: It was a balance of physical and metaphysical science and how imbalances in your chakras or emotional centers, as the author calls them, can influence your physical health. Very well written, funny and entertaining yet intelligent and informative.

Both personal and scientific, this is a compelling treatise on how to remediate and strengthen one's right cerebral hemisphere functions --and soulful centeredness --for purposes of preventing, and helping to cure, our physical and emotional ailments.

It's hard to ignore the connection between mind and body and this highly skilled professional connects the dots in an almost psychic manner. She reminds us to listen to our inner voices and more importantly take heed.
Jun 05, 2008 Keri rated it really liked it
This is a fascinating book, but is not an easy read. She is an M.D., PhD, and medical intuitive. The content is important with regard to using insight for medical healing of your body's ailments.

Her examples didn't match with any of my experiences. Her writing style isn't very accessible. I finally gave up on it.

Christiane Northrup talks about her friend, Mona Lisa and I loved this book of hers just as much, maybe a little more.
Jan 10, 2010 Suzie rated it really liked it
Awesome read! If you've ever wondered if various thoughts lead to specific ailments, this is the book to pick up.
Anyone interested in psychosomatic diseases, medicine, intuition, self-healing, this book has it all......

Some interesting info, but a little (maybe a lot) dry. I had to skim the last half.
