Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations, and Intuition
All is Well, the new book by celebrated authors Louise Hay and Mona Lisa Schulz, not only explores the medical science behind the affirmations in Louise Hay's international bestseller You Can Heal Your Life, but also offers stories and practical advice for personal healing.
Structured around seven emotional centers, which mirror our chakra system, Louise and Mona Lisa examine the connections between these centers and the body. Drawing on years of research, they explore probable mental causes for the physical manifestation of illness associated with each center, and then lay out how to address these health concerns. Combining two complementary systems, Louise discusses new thought patterns and offers new affirmations to counteract specific emotional weaknesses, and Mona Lisa, who has worked for many years as a medical intuitive and physician, helps readers listen to their own bodies' intuition and prescribes medical solutions that are based in Western science. They provide real-world examples of people who faced illness and outline the specific emotional and physical prescriptions that helped them heal.
Affirmations, intuition, and medical science form a powerful triad that enable readers to achieve maximum health and well-being, and to experience on a deep level that, as Louise always says, "All is well."
I found All Is Well by Louise Hay and Dr. Mona Lisa Shulz to provide that missing puzzle piece in how best to heal oneself. One item of note that I particularly appreciated was that the authors stressed the importance of healing occurring not from affirmations or Western medicine or even alternative medicine alone, but from a combination of all these things together. That is once misconception I have often found when someone unfamiliar with Louise Hay's work picks up her first book - You Can Heal Your Life. The assumption they make is that the affirmations will miraculously heal you but they are missing the other pieces of the puzzle.
Another aspect I liked was how dis-ease and illness in the body was correctly tied into the chakras, or as they're referred to in All Is Well, the emotional centers of the body. As a person who has feet in both Western and alternative medicine, I found this to be a great way to introduce chakras to individuals who may not know or understand them. It also helped me to gain a deeper comprehension of how illness can occur in regards to these areas of the body.
Generally, All Is Well by Louise Hay and Dr. Mona Lisa Shulz is a great introduction to another way of looking at health and illness while not entirely dismissing Western medicine entirely.
This is my review of All Is Well by Louise Hay and Dr. Mona Lisa Shulz. I acknowledge that I received this book free from Hay House Publishing to review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment.
After a brief and informative background and purpose, we jump right in a self-assessment quiz. It is safe and not scary, and it is a helpful tool to use throughout the rest of the book. You do not need to currently have a condition or issue to read the book, and taking this quiz will not create one for you! I found it helped attune me to the approach and purpose of the chapters, and will also be useful in the future (and as a parent).
The chapters are organized by chakra, or energy centers. They address related symptoms, share clinical case-study examples, and provide specific actions and attitudes that will increase and maintain health in these areas. The writing flows personably and is easy to understand.
At the end of the chapters is a resource table, a quick-guide for affirmations to address specific issues. This is easy to navigate, with three areas: Problem, Probable Cause, and New Thought Pattern. It is arranged alphabetically by Problem, and again is incredibly reader-friendly.
Through this book we are able to see a greater depth of patterns in how our thoughts, emotions, and physical health are connected, which I believe gives the individual greater power over their own wellness. It gives equality to medical science and personal intuition, never suggesting one over the other.
If you have ever read Louise Hay’s “little blue book”, you are already familiar with this type of content. However, the addition of Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz presents the science behind what already makes sense. The depth she brings is a beautiful complement, resulting in an active guide to return to repeatedly, that should be on everyone’s resource list.
Hay House graciously gave me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion of it. I got a huge chuckle out of the chakra chapter titles and how they connected recognizable song titles to related energy centers. If nothing else piques your interest after reading this review, please go look at a purchase site that lists the chapters, and share my giggle!
