The latest book sent to me by Hay House for review was Deborah King's Be Your Own Shaman. Intrigued yet skeptical (due to a less than great experience with an energy healer), I began reading immediately to find out what I could learn from the book that promised to 'heal yourself and others with 21st century energy medicine.' Could I really do that just from reading less than 200 pages?
King takes you on a journey within yourself while sharing pertinent information about her background and experience. Sharing her personal story of early abuse, striving to be and look perfect (what she terms her 'size 2 period') and her remission from cancer was powerful. Although my own experiences have been quite different, I felt an instant connection to the author.
Emanating from the pages of the book was my own personal coach/guru providing me with valuable information in healing and practical exercises to aid me in the adventure ahead. Far from being a quick fix or an instant healer, King's sincerity in what is involved in becoming a healer (of self and others) is evident throughout, as she documents both her failures and what she learned from them to create her greatest triumphs. She even gives valuable warnings of what to avoid when choosing to work with an energy healer (information that I wish I had possessed years ago!).
If you are intrigued by the idea of energy medicine and fancy delving deeper into your own psyche, I highly recommend picking up a copy Be Your Own Shaman. I'll certainly be utilizing the information in this book for years to come.
