Wendy Stofan Halley is a talented practitioner as well as a talented writer, she is a practitioner in the indigenous healing methods and has the unique ability to be in touch with another persons subconscious by spiritual means.  Slaying the Mouse is a true story that will astound as well as amaze you.  You will learn how Wendy was able to help a nineteen year old man whom she calls Jason in order to protect his identity his name has been changed.  Wendy’s brother Tim is dating Jason’s sister and they need Wendy’s help, so Wendy’s father calls to ask for the much needed help.  Her father does not quite understand exactly what she does but he has enormous faith in her abilities.

Jason has slipped into a deep coma and Wendy develops a spiritual connection with him to help him heal over the distance that separates them.  Wendy’s ability allows her to spiritually connect with Jason, talk with him, and to help him begin to face and understand his fears and to overcome those fears.  The story is an account of roughly a nine month spiritual healing process.  Wendy’s is in constant contact with the family via email and is a very compassionate and caring lady.  Have you ever wondered what patients know or hear while being in a coma state?  What happens at the subconscious level?  What experiences they may have while in the coma?  Do they know you are there?  Can they hear you when you speak to them?

Wendy Stofan Halley has penned a remarkable and miraculous story.  She has developed a writing style that flows smoothly and includes vivid details which creates a powerful sensory image with the reader.  The story is emotional, uplifting and a intriguing and engaging read.  I found no faults and think both the concept and writing as a whole was excellent.  The author writes the story in a first person narrative style which is superbly written.

I highly recommend Slaying the Mouse to everyone who has a desire to be amazed by a true story that will truly leave you in a state of awe.

Reading this title was a great pleasure!

Dr. Keith Ablow tells as well as shows us how ignoring or even burying painful memories and experience can affect every aspect of our lives negatively.  In “Living The Truth” he presents strategies and exercises to help you transform the pain of the past into the power of your future.

In the beginning he describes this as “your journey” as being one of a working partnership with him.  He presents you with exercises where you write down your thoughts and feelings as well as answering questions throughout the entire book.  You are able to write your answers within the pages of the book itself as he has provided adequate space with lined pages.  If you prefer to preserve your copy to pass onto a friend or family member I would suggest you record your answers within a journal or a notebook, plus this will provide privacy so no one else sees what you have answered.

Dr. Ablow’s core message is that no one has a perfect life and states that everyone has pain in which they must overcome.  He has many strategies to help you overcome the negatives and to face your conflicts head on which will give you more control over your life experiences.  He describes his book as his “most ambitious attempt to help people do what I finally did – face the truth about the past, however uncomfortable, sad, or frightening – and experience the remarkable power that comes from that journey.”

Living The Truth is a book that tells you as well as shows you how to change your life. This book is idea for the people who feel their lives are way off track, maybe feeling a little depressed, down on their luck, or even just the general down feeling, or the feeling of everything in your life is going wrong. Or for those of us that wish to make a positive change in our lives. He has a very easy reading style, while incorporating explanations, examples and simple steps to follow.  He beams with positive energy.  I highly recommend reading it and giving it a try, you have nothing to lose except maybe some pain.

Dr. Ablow is a powerful writer and he empowers you to embrace reality about the painful times of your life experiences.  He describes to us how to face our own individual life stories and to feel the pain and then push forward and grow beyond the pain.  This is a journey of self-discovery which he presents in such a concise way making one want to live the truth.  I found the exercises to be very helpful and I have started Living The Truth.  He is one of the leading voices in America on healing and delivering the message that no one has a perfect life.  Why not start your self-discovery by choosing to Live The Truth today.
