Book Image Not Available
Overview
This is the e-book version of the classic work on affirmations that was originally published by Bantam Books in 1990, which has sold close to 100,000 books and has been translated into eight languages. The heart of Words That Heal consists of a series of 52 passages or "teachings," each of which contains three parts: 1) A Meditation—a short passage that offers thoughts and reflections about a specific subject or life experience. 2) A Series of Affirmations—positive thoughts and ideas that when repeated will help you to transform your negative beliefs and attitudes. 3) A Quotation that encapsulates the essence of the teaching. In addition, Words That Heal contains these special features: • An overview of what affirmations are and how to use them for readers not familiar with affirmations. • A concordance containing a list of common emotional or spiritual challenges (i.e. fear, anger, sadness, loss, etc) along with the specific meditations that provide guidance on how to heal and transform them. • An appendix that contains dozens of affirmations for the reader to use which are listed under seven distinct headings: Self-Esteem, Love and Relationships, Creative Self-Expression, Work/Vocation, Prosperity, Health, and Spiritual Development. For the individual who is experiencing anxiety, fear or hopelessness, having problems with health, going through a career crisis, suffering grief after the loss of a loved one, or simply looking for encouragement and inspiration, Words That Heal offers comfort, support, insight and understanding. Here is what other self-help authors have to say about Words That Heal. I wholeheartedly endorse Douglas Bloch's work on affirmations. Words damaged our souls and there are words that heal. Please read it! John Bradshaw, author of Healing the Shame That Binds You A wonderful book for those who are willing to open their hearts. Jerry Jampolsky, author of Love is Letting Go of Fear
