Interesting read and thoughts about healing.

Most of the book is about self hypnosis. I'm not sure I'm ready yet to add that to my toolbar, but it does give great insights.

One takeaway for me is the concept that the subconscious, or for me the body, does not understand words such as no, not. In attempting to be positive, I.e I will not have pain or I will not fail, we may be sabotaging our effort, instead our positive thoughts and Ki should be I am comfortable or I will succeed.

This book is for those who need healing. It is though, not to be dealt with lightly as the methods inside require intense thought and dedication. It has helped me over come a torn meniscus in both knees. But it takes time and a willingness to be diligent in the author's instructions. This book uses self-hypnosis and guides you through the process. Here is my disclaimer: I am not a medical professional and this is not intended to substitute as a medical diagnosis.
