All Is Well
All Is Well: Heal Your Body With Medicine, Affirmations, and Intuition is a collaborative by the indomitable Louise Hay and the dauntless Mona Lisa Schulz. The book is a how-to guide that integrates healing methods, addressing health in these areas: medical, holistic, nutritional, and emotional. It weaves intuition and logic, emotions and fact–and produces specific direction to address and improve health.
After a brief and informative background and purpose, we jump right in a self-assessment quiz. It is safe and not scary, and it is a helpful tool to use throughout the rest of the book. You do not need to currently have a condition or issue to read the book, and taking this quiz will not create one for you! I found it helped attune me to the approach and purpose of the chapters, and will also be useful in the future (and as a parent).
The chapters are organized by chakra, or energy centers. They address related symptoms, share clinical case-study examples, and provide specific actions and attitudes that will increase and maintain health in these areas. The writing flows personably and is easy to understand.
At the end of the chapters is a resource table, a quick-guide for affirmations to address specific issues. This is easy to navigate, with three areas: Problem, Probable Cause, and New Thought Pattern. It is arranged alphabetically by Problem, and again is incredibly reader-friendly.
Through this book we are able to see a greater depth of patterns in how our thoughts, emotions, and physical health are connected, which I believe gives the individual greater power over their own wellness. It gives equality to medical science and personal intuition, never suggesting one over the other.
If you have ever read Louise Hay’s “little blue book”, you are already familiar with this type of content. However, the addition of Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz presents the science behind what already makes sense. The depth she brings is a beautiful complement, resulting in an active guide to return to repeatedly, that should be on everyone’s resource list.
Hay House graciously gave me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion of it. I got a huge chuckle out of the chakra chapter titles and how they connected recognizable song titles to related energy centers. If nothing else piques your interest after reading this review, please go look at a purchase site that lists the chapters, and share my giggle!
