Did you have a tough childhood?
, 12 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Self-healing: Creating Your Health [AUDIOBOOK] (Audio CD)
Then if so, this CD could be for you. It's just over an hour long and split into two parts. The first is Louise talking (in her pleasant but overly-slowed down manner) about her theory of how thoughts and feelings affect the body. If you believe in the mind-body link then it's all sensible stuff, but seems slightly dated now things have moved on. There's a lot in there about the need to let go of fear and guilt, so if that's a particular problem for you, this may resonate.
The second half is a guided relaxaion session, with Louise giving a fairly short induction script, and then giving lots of positive messages. My difficulty with this is there is an assumption as to what the listener needs releasing from. I was fortunate to have a very stable, happy childhood, and so Louise telling me how I should let go of my unhappy memories when I had been left alone etc, really didn't work for me.
In summary, I think that if you are interested in the Louise's take on the mind-body connection, you'd probably get more detail by reading one of her books (if you are able to do that) or one of the more up to date texts on the subject. If you are looking for a guided meditation, there are much better ones around - Glenn Harrold springs to mind. However, if you've got some of the issues that I mentioned to deal with, then it might be worth a try.
