Although I didn't agree with all the philosophies in this book, it has great principles to help facilitate personal journeys of healing. For me it was an answer to prayers in understanding the importance of emotional health and the whole ness it brings when balanced. I love that it encourages healing by yourself and not dependent on anyone. Highly recommend for anyone who has struggled with depression and traditional methods of healing were unsuccessful.

This was a remarkable read for me.... I read it over about six months at a time I was processing a lot of emotional trauma. I learnt to experience painful emotions fully........ my life changed significantly for the better as I read it... I do not think any other book has helped me free myself so effectively (except Pema Chodron)

Ug, very dry. The idea of this book was very good. I believe we often do need to process our emotions instead of stamping them down. I also believe that emotions can effect us spiritually and physically if we don't process them as needed. However I couldn't get through this book. It was very descriptive and not entertaining. It was written like a text book. I don't recommend this book to anyone unless maybe they are going into counseling.

Used this book as a text in a class I taught on Inner Listening(TM). It's very in depth and may be more than many are ready for but Ruskan knows his subject and is one of the best in his field. It's a great reference book.
I highly recommend his emotional clearing audio practice sessions that can be downloaded into your iTunes/ipod for $99. They can be found on his website www.emclear.com. Try his free relaxation download to see how his voice and technique feel to you.
I've found his audio emotio

This is the best self help book I have ever read. The author clearly spells out how to use available tools such as breathing, yoga, meditation to work through disturbing or self defeating psychological states. This book, like it says, comprehensively explores and utilizes both eastern and western philosophy to help the reader grow and move through emotional problems and limitations.

I just read parts of this book to see what someone dear to me is interested in these days. He has some interesting ideas. Then it was due back at the library so I returned it.

“If you accept that uncertainty is an inherent part of existence, you will not feel as if you must compulsively guard against lack. Placing your trust in the flow of life, you find yourself provided for. Acceptance of insecurity and uncertainty paradoxically brings about feelings of security and stability.” –John Ruskan, Emotional Clearing

This book is a light for the dark, difficult-to-deal-with parts of myself and my experience through life.

Couldn't finish it. Made it 54% in. Author was redundant, and the spiritual assumptions were controversial.

Getting home late at night, my anxiety would take off and I would imagine getting killed or kidnapped walking into my house in the dark. (Yes, irrational, but anxiety can be quite dramatic).

According to this book, I found myself thinking "Well, I keep manifesting this in my mind and it will actually happen".

At first, I understood the spiritual relation to manifesting your thoughts. However,
