Intuitive Healer--Accessing Your Inner Physician (a book review)
by Ellen Louise Kahne,
In a vivid
dream, you see doctor telling you that you have cancer, but you
don't believe him. In fact, you call him a quack for trying to put
such ideas into your head. Months later, you notice a red bump on
your nose and go to a doctor who takes a biopsy. He insists you
"prepare yourself" for immediate cancer treatment. Remembering your
dream, you go for a second opinion only to find out that the first
doctor's suspicions are false! This is exactly what happened to
Marcia Emery, psychologist, professor, intuitive educator, director
of education for the Intuition Network, and a physician's daughter.
long ago learned to trust the inner voice she calls your "inner
physician" and to tune out the distracting "cocktail party," the
voices of our societal programming and conditioning. Marcia Emery's
book is an intuitive "how to" manual to attune us to our authentic
inner voice so that we can recognize and traverse the route to health
and vitality, our own "road to Wellville." The Intuitive Healer
is a comprehensive resource manual which synthesizes and combines
many traditions of healing, explaining them in a clear and practical,
in intuitive training, Dr. Emery spells out her "mindshift" method
to create and maintain health. She explores the underlying causes
of dis-ease and dis-comfort. Her approach is simple and easy to
follow. For example, when your back goes out of alignment, Dr. Emery
suggests that you begin to explore this by asking yourself, "what
facet of support is out of alignment in my life and what can I do
to take responsibility for my own healing?"
step, you learn to let go of mental tension, using positive affirmations
and focusing words, images, word association, soothing music, breathing
techniques, even awakening your intuition by taking a sensory, imaged
mental vacation to a place of peace and healing. In this way, the
impediments are cleared away that interfere with clear insight and
the highway to "Wellville" is opened for travel and accurate perception.
to Marcia Emery, there are keys to interpreting the imagery which
you see and receive during meditation and in dreams. It is through
dreams and symbolic imagery, even daydreaming, that we all tap into
the intuitive knowledge of the universe and the wisdom which we
each carry within for our own healing. Just recalling your daydreams
during third grade math class and remembering your teacher's reactions
to your reveries, will convince you that all of your childhood educational
programming was designed to root out your natural ability to let
go and tune in to your true inner voice. When you learn to intentionally
meditate and shift your mind into intuitive high gear, authentic
information from your intuitive self accurately unfolds.
reports the example of Dr. Jean Slane who nodded off during a meditation
and received vital health information about one of her pregnant
patients. She dreamed that the expectant mother could no longer
write from left to right, she reversed everything. In her dream,
a dream therapist told Dr. Slane that it would be dangerous for
her patient to write forward. Keying in to this information, the
doctor realized that the dream related to a breech birth. She had
planned to turn the baby for a normal delivery, but discussed this
first with her patient and opted for a breech delivery, which turned
out to be the right medical decision. Amazingly, It so happened
that the baby's great grandfather had the same dream as Dr. Slane.
Emery is well versed in the healing power of the human mind and
many healing arts, including using intentional touch for healing.
She includes exercises and space for journaling your results, so
you can test and improve your accuracy as you learn to flex your
illness is curable, sometimes the inner physician (or higher consciousness)
chooses the lesson of a fatal illness. This doesn't mean that illness
is our fault, but it may carry an important lesson for us and for
our families and, often, an opportunity for growth. Healing can
take place on many levels, even if physical healing is not possible.
Often, relationships and issues can be healed through coming to
terms with illness.
physician invites you to de-stress, forgive, center yourself in
prayer and/or positive affirmation and become an inner "Peace Worker."
It's almost like hearing a kindly aunt say "take your shoes off,
put your feet up, make yourself at home--in your own body, mind
and spirit." Take The Intuitive Healer to the waiting room for your
next medical check up and and mindshift into conscious daydreaming,
you may get a priceless second opinion.
