Books You Can Heal Yourself: How to Use the Power of Bio-Energy in Your Life By Seka Nikolic

‘ One ordinary day at work, she had a routine exchange with a colleague who suffered from a spinal deformity that left him unable to walk. Suddenly, without any conscious thought, Nikolic was compelled to place her hands on the colleague’s shoulders. “I seemed to be controlled by a force other than that of my rational brain,” and unable to take her hands away, she relates. After several minutes, she removed her hands and the man, amazingly, rose from his wheelchair. Dazed and in shock, he muttered repeatedly, “I can walk. I can walk.” ‘

The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggart ” The author has once again reviewed the “frontier” science of our time, including research by Dr. Dean Radin, Dr. WilliamTiller, Dr. Fritz Popp, Dr. Gary Schwatrz and more. According to the author, what all of these scientists all have in common is that they are the vanguard for the new “science of intention.” This growing body of evidence suggests that thought is a thing — with real, measurable power and energy. Most importantly, it seems our thoughts have power over plants, animals, other humans and inanimate objects. “

Edgar Cayce: An American Prophet by Sidney D. Kirkpatrick

“This biography has been an incredible story that was quite worth reading into. I was truly taken aback by most of Edgar’s accomplishments and still dropped my jaw on a number of the “less” incredible ones.

Wellbeing & Healing David L. Cunningham: Faith Healer “David L. Cunningham hasn’t always filled his days by applying his healing touch to the physical and emotional pain of his fellow man. The pivotal juncture in David’s life came in 1990 while he was a captive of Saddam Hussein for 100 days during the Gulf War. He was one of many “human shields” strategically placed in prisons adjacent to the Iraqi military’s armament facilities. It was during this critical time that David Cunningham, a highly successful manager of international hotels and five star restaurants, made his personal peace with God and pledged to use his spiritual healing “gifts” to heal others if and when he was allowed to live and be released from captivity. “

Other US States Larry Dossey & Others at The International Conference on Science and Consciousness In his workshop, “Dirt and Optimism: The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things,” Larry Dossey will discuss how every week modern medicine announces the arrival of yet another “wonder drug” or “miracle procedure” to a world that is increasingly wary of such high-tech cures. Drugs, transplants, and surgery don’t work for most of our aches and pains; and while we are grateful for these life-saving developments, there are associated risks that we can only ignore at our peril. Consequently, many of us are searching for simpler methods of healing. April 20 – 25, 2007
