I find it funny how we come across our teachers in life...when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I brought this book home from the library (forget where I learned about it) and found it snatched by my husband as it was reviewed by a teacher he reveres. Great resource book on the limitless power of healing within. Definitely one I will purchase for our own resource shelf.

This book really helped me when I was in a bad place. It was my bible and it's so well-read and worn now that my copy looks tatty - but I love that because it reminds me of how useful it was to me back then. A great healing book, with really good meditations. HIGHTLY recommended.
