LISA’S BOOK “YOUR BODY REVEALS: AWAKEN TO YOUR TRUTH”
Thirty years of being a holistic healer has taught me that physical symptoms, illness, and disease can be our greatest teacher if we know how to listen and understand the deep Soul messages coming through our body. My core message in the book is that they are a call to realign us with our true nature and wholeness. By examining our thoughts, beliefs, and perceptions, and using the guidance of the our body to learn the inherent message from our Soul, we can Awaken and be our true Self. Combined with exercises, meditations, the 7 Steps to Wholeness, a compendium of what each organ/body-system represents, foundational knowledge in nutrition, as well as living with the natural cycles of the seasons, this book is a hands-on tool for taking positive, self-empowered action.
Seeing my clients heal and grow by accessing their body’s wisdom has inspired me to share my understanding and healing approach. The book is a simple yet profound guide for regaining and maintaining health and inner peace. Anyone, no matter what their situation, can use what I’ve written to gain more self-confidence and mastery over their life challenges.
This book is designed to assist the reader in shifting from a focus on fear of disease to self-empowered actions. It shows how physical symptoms, illness, and disease are a “wake-up” call from your Soul. The Soul is seen as the “body whisperer” and the symptoms as the messenger. Using my Soul-based integrative approach, the reader is invited to engage in an enriching process of self-discovery that aids healing.
It is extremely relevant and timely in today’s fast paced fix-me health culture as:
• it shows an expanded view on the deeper causes of disease than the “fix my symptoms” mentality.
• it helps to shift from fear of disease to a self-empowered healing action.
• supports preventative care.
• reduces the sky rocketing explosion of health care costs.
Review by Susan M:
“Lisa Berman’s book, Your Body Reveals, will be of interest to both the experienced healer, and to the reader making her first acquaintance with the deeper principles of holistic healing. In fewer than 200 pages, the book is able to convey the wisdom that underlies the art of healing.
The book describes the findings of “soul-based integrative medicine.” Transcending the all too common reaction of fear of illness and the accompanying question, “Why me?” Lisa’s approach instead embraces a curiosity about symptoms, viewing them as the soul’s language via the body. She encourages us to accept “What Is” – in the sense of being fully present to what is right now in our experience — rather than futilely resisting our circumstances. She writes of becoming the observer so we can step out of our biased perception of ourselves, and admonishes us “…be aware of what you feel, watch your thoughts as well as your perceptions because suffering starts when you create a story around what you feel.” The book invites us to see symptoms as a reminder that we are out of balance, a message to return to the present moment, an encouragement to release our stories from the past and take a joyful step back into our wholeness and oneness. To fully address the “cause” of our symptoms, we need to look at what is going on with us as a whole person: body, mind, and soul.
There are practical applications, reminders of gentle but profound tools and practices such as meditation, breathwork, and Bach Flower Remedies. There is a helpful guide of physical symptoms and possible interpretations of their metaphoric meanings, along with other examples scattered throughout the book in lively examples from Lisa’s case histories.
This book reminds us that we are spiritual beings in these bodies that ultimately share Oneness in this universe. It is a lovely testament to the help and wholeness that is always available to us.
I find myself returning to this book time and again for its inspiration”.
