It is the winter of 2010. My good friend recommended a book to me. She was in the middle of her own journey of finding answers for one of her children who was having significant health challenges. She told me about the book and, honestly, I was somewhat skeptical. I tucked the information away.
About a month after the experience that I wrote about in this post, a friend showed up on my door and handed me a copy of the book that my other friend had told me about months earlier. I couldn’t believe it! I decided it must be a sign–I needed to read this book!
The book is called, “Feelings Buried Alive Never Die.” I was incredulous at what Karol Truman teaches, to say the least! This was really my first in-depth exposure to how our thoughts hold energy and that energy affects us at cellular levels. It was the beginning to learning that I had more control over what was happening in my body than I thought I did.
Please do not misunderstand me. I am NOT saying that a person with any ailment can just “think” their way out of it. I am NOT saying that those with depression need to just “think a happy thought” and it will go away. When it comes to mental illness/challenge, learning to eradicate false beliefs and replace them with truth is vital; reprogramming the neural pathways is essential. This is the work of the mind. The work of the brain takes on even more in-depth healing…
It is this work of healing the brain that began to unravel itself as I read this book. Since then, I have not only read and understand more, I have utilized resources that have been opened up to me to actually free my brain to be healed. I will speak more of this in upcoming posts.
For now, perhaps this concept is completely foreign to you. Maybe not. I invite you to read the following article. Expand your understanding! It matters!
