Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is written in the style of a fairy story as "stories have direct access to the healing part of the mind" and contains within it a series of highly imaginative visualisations involving such things as magical magnets for removing negative energies, and healing waterfalls in which we are invited to individually wash each and every part of our body.

If you are looking for a balanced and sober explanation of ME or chronic fatigue, and conventional strategies for dealing with this condition, then this book will leave you feeling exasperated.

If, on the other hand, you are able and willing to suspend sceptical disbelief and enter into the spirit of the book by reading and engaging in the visualisations with an open, joyful, and playful mind; then you may find, as I did, that the results achieved far surpass your expectations. It really does seem extraordinary that these visualisations, so ridiculous and far-fetched from a certain point of view, can have the effect of dissipating an experience of fatigue that only moments previously had felt as solid as granite.

I do not know if this book would work for everyone, and I myself have experienced mixed results - sometimes the visualisation exercises have worked to dispel my fatigue and sometimes they have not. Still, the very fact that they have worked for me on some occasions, is an extraordinary thing in and of itself, and demonstrates the power of the mind and the power of imagination.

I would recommend this book to anyone with fatigue issues who feels that they have the necessary temperament and openness of mind to work with its approach.

Olive's book is a delightful and easy read using the power of story or metaphor to simplify the message. However, make no mistake, the simplicity of the story, in no way weakens the power of the book. Energetic NLP is something that anybody can use at home to restore their natural energy levels. This is real self help material; it works. Olive has loads of successful stories of people who have sued her techniques and literally changed their lives. If you suffer from Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, ME etc, then this book is for you.

This book is a godsend. An easy read, a lovely story and so valuable to anyone suffering from a lack of energy. For me the techniques in this book gave me back the control on my life which I lost when I was diagnosed with MS 6 years ago. I also have a wonderful new path and outlook on my life.

I have purchased Olive's book based on the rave reviews on this webpage. However, I was disappointed with the book despite having read it attentively from beginning to end twice.

I found it very difficult having to struggle through the fairy-tale structure and the childish language the author employs to present her Energetic NLP exercise programme for energy recovery.

Since the book's narrator is a 32-year-old woman living with ME, why the childish language? The fairy-tale structure fails to work as it proceeds in stops and starts and lacks a recognisable plot. It just left me more and more confused as I worked through the book.

The other factor that got me confused is that chakras and karmas, features of Yogic philosophy, are presented in terms of electromagnetism and electrodynamics.

Overall, the author is trying to present a series of guided visualisations whose aim is to boost energy in people living with CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome). The theory behind the practice is a combination of Energetic NLP with what appears to me as the traditional Chinese theory of the Chi (life-force), as well as dashes of humanistic psychotherapy.

To get to the visualisations I had to dig through pages of baby-talk populated with little green men and knitting tooth fairies, not a good beginning. The visualisations I have encountered before, in my practice of both yoga and Qui Gong. Personally, I prefer Kundalini Yoga for an energy boost any day. And no green goblins in sight!

I think Olive is very enthusiastic about the possibilities of her approach for the treatment of fatigue, but she chose the wrong medium to present it.

May I suggest therefore that this book be read with a degree of scepticism? A high tolerance for baby talk will help as well.

Format: Kindle Edition
Since I find myself recommending this book I figured I should review it and share the appreciation. I read this book when I was virtually housebound with ME, and a week later I was basically recovered. This book was an important part of how that happened. At the time I was learning a stop technique, and I also read this book, and something just clicked in my mind and it all came together and I understood and gained control of my condition. The crucial part was the insight I gained, but this book put me in the right frame of mind to believe it is possible, and also supplied some great thought techniques. Don't be put off by the naive style. Maybe it's trying a different, more childlike mindset that allows you the possibility of seeing things differently?

I wish Energetic NLP and this book had been around in 1992 when I started 11 years of ME/CFS, multiple chemical sensitivity, food intolerances etc.! During those years I felt a victim, out of control, unsupported and un-believed.

Recover Your Energy shows you how, using the power of your mind in a fun and imaginative way, you can start to get back in charge of your energy and your life - even if you have little energy at present or are bed-ridden. The guided imagery meditations on the forthcoming CD will by-pass even the most brain-fogged conscious mind and enable the unconscious mind to start making the necessary changes. It really is that simple -just give permission and trust in your own abilities and the resources you already have.

Recover Your Energy provides guidance on your journey back to health and an exciting future in a gentle, step-by-step way. This book may be all the extra help you need; or you may require or choose to have the assistance of qualified practitioners to assist you on your journey to recovery. It also provides a simple on-going approach to maintaining your health and vitality.

My own journey took me through self-development and training via hypnotherapy, NLP and coaching. The addition of Energetic NLP adds a new dimension to all of these approaches and is particularly relevant for fatigue / lack of energy conditions. Reading the book and using the processes is helping me to recognise and release remaining `blocks' and to gain additional energy.

Whether you are occasionally or chronically fatigued, currently or previously, wanting to work by yourself or with a practitioner, this book is a must for helping you to understand and manage your energy, restore your health and end fatigue. For health-care professionals, conventional or complementary, it provides guidance for looking after yourselves and aiding your clients.
