"When I first picked up this book I was expecting something along the lines of prayer or meditation. I was pleasantly surprised with what I learned here. Soul Speak by Julia Cannon credits much of the information in this book to her mother, Dolores Cannon, a hypnotherapist with 40-plus years of experience. It is an intriguing look at tapping into the Higher Self and listening to the messages it sends to your body and translating what is being said. As the author states, "We are more than just physical beings."
As someone who has been practicing a variety of healing techniques over the years ranging from the most basic meditation to ARCH healing and ancient Hawaiian healing art, I knew I was still lacking something in my foundation of the physical/mental body healing. Soul Speak: The Language of the Body helped me in understanding more of looking and listening to not only the higher self, but my body and what it is trying to tell me through pain, illness, emotions, etc. I truly wish I would have read this book prior to my herniated back some ten months ago.
This work gives an overview of the physical/mental/and spiritual, then putting it together. Using a form of hypnosis called QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy), individuals enter a deep state of relaxation and are more in connection with the Higher Self.
Emotions are also key as Cannon explains. All emotions are necessary and not to be feared (as fear itself is a powerful emotion). Each emotion teaches us so much about ourselves and should be embraced to understand who we are and what may be hindering or helping our growth as an individual.
Cannon gives a good explanation of the entire physical body (systems, organs and other body parts) and how the Higher Self sends messages through form of pain and illness and what these areas maybe telling us. I found this information quite valuable as every ailment I have had seems to very accurate as it corresponds to the body area that was affected. I myself have added this work to my collection of healing manuals and look forward to applying the technique (Chapter 21) in future healing sessions. The last chapter is a nice reference guide to most of the body messages that will help the reader learn what may be happening within themselves. This is a must read for anyone involved in alternative healing of self or clients." -FATE magazine, March/April 2013
"According to Julia Cannon's research, our bodies are speaking to us all the time. What's more, each of us is equipped with our own private guidance system to navigate through life's challenges. As the daughter of Dolores Cannon, researcher of "lost knowledge" through past-life regressions, Julia began receiving messages of her own about how we can heal ourselves by understanding our bodies' messages and acting upon them. She shares examples from past-life regressions, information from higher realms, as well as easy to understand guidance on healing the emotions, the circulatory system, digestive system, nervous system and nine other body systems, as well as cancer, accidents, the chakras, and how to ask your body questions. A quick reference guide to your body's messages and an index of conditions completes this excellent healing manual for awakening higher consciousness every moment of our lives." -Light of Consciousness magazine, Winter 2013
