In reply to comment: Did you read the book? (see in situ)

Not yet. I've read a similar book,

The Secret Language Of Your Body, by Inna Segal. It seems the two authors share some basic beliefs about signs we get from our bodies, but w/a somewhat different approach towards resolution. Bernie Siegel (author of Love, Medicine, & Miracles) wrote the foreword, which surely applies to both:

The Secret Language of Your Body is what the subtitle says it is: The Essential Guide. You are then likely to ask: But why do I need a guide, and what am I being guided to? My response would be that this book can guide you to the life you were truly meant to live, which the majority of us are not living. Each Monday morning, we have more suicides, strokes, illnesses, and heart attacks. I think our bodies are trying very hard to tell us something about how our lives, jobs, relationships, and attitudes affect our bodies and our health...

I hope you'll read the complete foreward at Amazon.

I do plan to read Feelings Buried Alive as well. I'm sorry I didn't happen to read it first. From what I can see on Amazon, comparing the two, it seems to have far more in the way of explanation and anecdotes to help you understand the different principles. The book I have is filled w/lists & phrases. It's more... if this, then do that.

My friend who is always referring to and recommending Feelings Buried Alive is a well-respected counselor with clients of all ages and re various types of issues, incl. veterans, and an accomplished practitioner in the area of natural healing.

I'll mention one last thing. In The Secret Language of Your Body there are recommended prayers associated w/particular ailments and issues. (I only realized it applied to Feelings, too, reading reviews just now. Some people feel strongly against prayer, viewing anything more than what we have material evidence for, laughable.) Anyway, these are directed towards oneself, whether we might believe that God resides within us, or have a different name for that same divine force, or simply take it on faith that *something* is keeping all the body systems working and in sync! - a certain master intelligence within us... with the power to heal. The author refers to this as our "Divine Healing Intelligence."

FYI, for any Christians reading this far, this in no way contradicts what Jesus said (not to be confused with "Christian beliefs!"). For example, sometimes when someone would ask Jesus to be healed, He would first ask if the person believed He *could* heal him, afterwards saying, "...they faith hath made thee whole." Jesus more or less sums it up in Matthew 9:27-30:

"And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you. And their eyes were opened..."

It's that same faith in a Divine Intelligence that is "summoned up" in the book. :)

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
