The Intuitive Healer: Accessing Your Inner Physician

Marcia Emery, Author, Caroline Myss, Foreword by St. Martin's Press $23.95 (256p) ISBN 978-0-312-19902-9
This author's previous work (Dr. Marcia Emery's Intuition Workbook) has focused largely on introducing the use of intuition in career and business matters. Now psychologist Emery turns her attention to personal health, again employing her eight-step ""Mindshift Method"" of defining the problem or question, releasing mental blockages, releasing physical tension, eliciting symbolic imagery, interpreting these symbols for the particular individual, resting, revisiting the imagery and its possible meanings and, finally, applying the information received for healing. Emery claims that everyone has an ""inner physician,"" communicating through dreams, ""lightning flash[es] of knowing"" and subtle perceptions of all five senses, offering messages to warn about, diagnose and suggest remedies for all kinds of ailments. Based on the premise that ""every symptom is a cry for help, signaling something amiss on the mental, emotional, and/or spiritual level,"" Emery stresses the importance of finding the hidden lesson, seeing the big picture and accepting that ""not everything and everyone can or should be healed"" in the wished-for manner. Emery provides readers with numerous exercises to practice in this instructive guide to engaging the mind in order to heal the body. (Mar.)
