This review is from: Recover Your Energy (New Perspectives) (Paperback)
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.
