Healing Myths Healing Magic by Donald M. Epstein

Healing Myths Healing Magic by Donald M. Epstein is a book to challenge you to change your beliefs about healing that are actually just myths. Be ready to change your previous way of thinking about healing and huge changes can come your way!


Book Description
Healing Myths, Healing Magic examines the deeply ingrained stories, or myths, we commonly hold about how our bodies heal – myths that can actually inhibit healing. For example: “I must forgive in order to heal,” “A person may be too far gone to heal,” or “Healing is not always available.”

The myths we accept without question have a powerful, magically suggestive effect on the way we interpret out symptoms, the way we heal, and the quality of life we experience. Our stories, or myths, can create the magic of healing in our lives, or they can stop the magic completely.

Dr. Epstein contends that unless we question the myths that control our lives, we will continue to make the same healing choices we have been conditioned to make, even if those choices are killing us.

In this breakthrough book, Dr. Epstein divides the healing myths into four categories – Social, Biomedical, Religious, and New Age. He exposes each myth individually, then suggests an alternative statement, or Healing Magic, to help us reclaim our body’s natural ability to heal.” – Healing Myths Healing Magic


My Thoughts
Healing Myths Healing Magic is a book that really spoke to me. Many myths about healing (and life in general) are set into our way of thinking from when we are young kids up to where we are now in life. Breaking these myths is not an easy thing to do. However, they can be broken with some serious thought and determination on your own part. I tried really hard to do this while reading the book, and I think that I have a few broken so far.

To really get the most out of this book, I suggest reading it through all the way. Then go back and read only one or two chapters at a time to really let it absorb into your knowing and consciousness. Actively work on transforming your prior beliefs so that they work better for you. When you feel that you have changed those beliefs, and then move on to the next few. If some you want to work on first, work on those – order isn’t really important.

This is a book that could really change your life and help you to heal. I highly recommend it.

Sounds like a very good thing to read before bed. I wonder if it would help me with my skin issues? I guess it wouldn't hurt. What do you think?
