Finally, a book outlining the benefits of energy work from practical, common "psychological" perspective.
The book discuses charkas, acupuncture pathways, emotional freedom technique (EFT) and many other forms of energy used to heal.
Holistic medicine is mind; body, spirit, and while older generations may not have much exposure to these systems, this author makes learning about them easy, interesting and fun. It exposes energy work to the layperson!
More importantly, these techniques work. Why not feel better and get to the root of issues naturally, without medication? Why not explore your dreams and desires and open the opportunity to manifest those dreams? Energy work helps concretize your goals.
How the human mind, functions and what it is capable of, is still in the embryonic stage.we can't measure it all and even if we had the technology, we
still would not know all of its vast capabilities. This book allows the reader to help himself. To learn and understand many systems, and to grasp how they work.
This book gives the reader many stories and techniques that will bring hope, encouragement, joy, and change. Energy follows thought. By recreating positive thoughts, energy changes, and that changes outcomes.
A great self-help book for the disbelievers. Try the techniques. You will be happier.
As a practitioner of acupuncture and herbal medicine, I utilize many techniques, and educate patients on how to help themselves. When asked where these techniques came from, I offer a simple answer, "God made them." We do not need a team of scientists to prove that they work. They do. This author easily explains how to create abundance, joy and balance.
She is warm-hearted, with great stories and exercises to help you easily change your outlook. Help, hope, and renewal at any age are possible. Enjoy this one! I can't wait for more. This book brings knowledge and power to that that is within.

The old saying "Life begins at 40" is, for many people, more fantasy than reality...
As we age, we typically undergo a plethora of different changes, including everything from decreased memory to slowing reflexes to diminished physical features. The reason? Quite naturally, our minds and bodies "tire" with age, and with them the concomitant pep and drive that keep us going every day.
Until now, the phenomenon of diminished capacity/abilities with age has been an accepted - and expected - practice; however, in Second Chance At Your Dream, Dr. Dorothea Hover-Kramer writes a brand new chapter regarding the scope and quality of later life. A helpful guide for those who want to be active participants - and not mere observers - in the second halves of their lives, Second Chance is an expertly crafted volume that teaches readers how to use their body's natural energy in order to manifest optimal creativity and health. Furthermore, Dr. Hover-Kramer cites her vast array of personal and professional experiences as a means of providing readers with first-hand examples of how to equip themselves with the tools necessary to overcome unforeseen challenges, as well as thrive in the face of continued adversity.
Bolstered by illustrative photos and practical, easy to follow tools and exercises, Second Chance encourages readers to embrace - rather than flee from - the omnipresent yearning for a meaningful life that lingers within us all. Reminding us that dispelling negative energy is the key to achieving true self acceptance - and ultimately realizing our dreams - Dr. Hover-Kramer reassures readers that miracles are not distant, unattainable phenomena, but rather ever-present, readily accessible gifts just waiting to be discovered every day.
A must read for anyone seeking to live an enriched, fulfilling life, Second Chance At Your Dream is a highly recommended literary treat.
