Dr Z’s Summer Book Club – July 2019

Welcome back to the summer book club – I was overwhelmed by the response from last months’ book and I am so excited to share the July book in the series!

July Book: Mirror Work by Louise Hay

I hope you enjoyed last month’s fantastic ready by Dawson Church.  This month I have chosen a book that works well with what we just read.  Even though this is not a newly published book, I wanted to include it for July because in the last few weeks, I’ve recommended it to at least 5 different patients, so the information is still vital and needed to help in the healing process for many.

We’re going to kick off our July month with Louise Hay’s book, “Mirror Work.”  We all know that healthy and healing involves factors like nutrition, clean water and exercise, but clearing the issues that many of us have on loving ourselves is sometimes the final step that needs to be achieved in order to truly be complete.

Louise Hay does a fantastic job in helping us discover and cultivate self love over a 21 day journey. This will be a great read if you need the help or even just a reminder and pick me up 🙂

Instead of having an in person book club, we’re going to create a virtual one via my Facebook group – see below for details. This way anyone in the world can join us and you can do it all at your own leisure.

I truly hope you enjoy the book and will dive into the discussion with us to create a community conversation!

Cheers,

Brief Summary from the Author:

Since its publication in 1984, Louise Hay’s international bestseller You Can Heal Your Life has sold over 40 million copies worldwide. Now, in MIRROR WORK: 21 DAYS TO HEAL YOUR LIFE, the popular teacher and author offers the first book dedicated to her signature practice for personal transformation.

The Mirror Principle, one of Louise’s core teachings, holds that our experience of life mirrors our relationship with ourselves; unless we see ourselves as loveable, the world can be a dark and lonely place. Mirror work—looking at oneself in a mirror and repeating positive affirmations—is Louise’s powerful method for learning to love oneself and experience the world as a safe and loving place.

Like her successful video course, Loving Yourself, MIRROR WORK lays out a 21-day program of teachings and exercises to help readers deepen their relationship with themselves and live a joyous and fulfilling life. “Doing mirror work,” Louise tells readers, “is one of the most loving gifts you can give yourself.” Each of the 21 days is organized around a theme, such as monitoring self-talk, overcoming fear, releasing anger, healing relationships, forgiving self and others, receiving prosperity, and living stress-free.

The daily program involves an exercise in front of the mirror, affirmations, journaling, an inspiring Heart Thought to ponder, and a guided meditation. Packed with practical guidance and support, presented in Louise’s warmly personal words, MIRROR WORK—or Mirror Play, as she likes to call it—is designed to help readers:

• Learn a deeper level of self-care

• Gain confidence in their own inner guidance system

• Develop awareness of their soul gifts

• Overcome resistance to change

• Boost self-esteem

• Cultivate love and compassion in their relationships with self and others

In just three weeks, the reader can firmly establish the practice of Mirror Work as an ongoing vehicle for positive growth and self-care, and a path to a full, rich life.

Dr Z’s Summer Book Club – June 2019

Welcome to my summer book club – I was overwhelmed by the response from last week’s email about starting a healthy book club this summer and am so excited to bring you the first book in the series!

We’re going to kick off our June series with Dawson Church’s latest book, “Mind to Matter.” His book is a journey explaining in an easily digestible way how our minds (which create energy and waves) literally construct the life around us. My first introduction into this realm was with Candace Pert’s book “Molecules of Emotion” which I ready almost 20 years ago, but this book takes hers to a whole other level!

This book has blown me away as I’ve intuitively known a lot of the concepts in this book and seen them in my practice and in real life but I LOVE the way he provides the research and scientific facts to tie it all together.

Instead of having an in person book club, we’re going to create a virtual one via my Facebook group – see below for details. This way anyone in the world can join us and you can do it all at your own leisure.

I truly hope you enjoy the book (or listen to the Audible version) and will dive into the discussion with us to create a community conversation!

Brief Summary from the Author:

Every creation begins as a thought, from a symphony to a marriage to an ice cream cone to a rocket launch. When we have an intention, a complex chain of events begins in our brains. Thoughts travel as electrical impulses along neural pathways. When neurons fire together they wire together, creating electromagnetic fields. These fields are invisible energy, yet they influence the molecules of matter around us the way a magnet organizes iron filings. 

In “Mind to Matter“, award-winning researcher Dawson Church explains the science showing how our minds create matter. Different intentions produce different fields and different material creations. The thoughts and energy fields we cultivate in our minds condition the atoms and molecules around us. We can now trace the science behind each link in chain from thought to thing, showing the surprising ways in which our intentions create the material world.
The science in the book is illustrated by many authentic case histories of people who harnessed the extraordinary power of the mind to create.

In “Mind to Matter“, Dawson Church shows that these outcomes aren’t a lucky accident only a few people experience. Neuroscientists have measured a specific brain wave formula that is linked to manifestation. This “flow state” can be learned and applied by anyone. New discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, vibration, and quantum physics connect each step in the process by which mind creates matter. They show that the whole universe is self-organizing, and when our minds are in a state of flow, they coordinate with nature’s emergent intelligence to produce synchronous outcomes.

The book contains over 150 photos and illustrations that explain the process, while an “Extended Play” section at the end of each chapter provides additional resources. As “Mind to Matter” drops each piece of the scientific puzzle into place, it leaves us with a profound understanding of the enormous creative potential of our minds. It also gives us a road map to cultivating these remarkable brain states in our daily lives.

Welcome to the Summer of Education

Let’s use this summer to learn more about our bodies, our health and easy ways to improve them both!

Welcome to the summer of education – So many of my patients and followers ask for resources and education to learn how to empower themselves and take charge of their own health. So I thought I’d take this summer to introduce you to some of my favorite reading and resources. I’ll even be starting a monthly book club where we can read a book as a group and start some lively discussions!

My first block of resources is focused on the Standard American Diet, how we botched it up, how to get back in check with what we’re eating/growing/producing and the drug companies that are making a fortune off of our misfortune.

Check out the list and see if any resonate with you to check out – If you’ve already read a few on the list let me know in the comments or comment on which one you’re going to read (you know for accountability 😉

Cheers –
