I live in Boston, and am a 52-year-old woman. I’ve had a severe chronic (mysterious) upset for many years.
I heard your talk to Unity Hawaii on a podcast about a month ago, and was so awed. I could tell that your experience was authentic– so VERY, VERY different from most of the gurus nowadays who have LOTS of good advice but their words don’t ring true all the way through. i.e., they’re just a lot of “good suggestions,” and you can tell they haven’t lived it, and they don’t really know “how” to do it. They are, for the most part, good people, but of no help to me; they haven’t lived it, with all the concomitant failures, equivocations, doubts, and “not doing enoughs.”
I then got your book from Amazon, and was spellbound for the 2 days it took me to read it. Your medical circumstances were amazingly horrific, and your suffering was at least equal to mine, so that was the first thing about you that I respected. But then, the second half of the book!!! Every SINGLE doubt, questioning, reasoning, analyzing, I could TOTALLY understand, because I have been through every single one of your thought pathways (except about two). I have now re-read the whole thing, and the first underlining was in blue; the second is in red, as I’m paring down to just the most essential passages for my quick reviews through the book.
I can’t tell you in a reasonable-length email how much I’ve advanced in my self-healing through you, your experience, and your generosity of spirit — the book is an awesome work! The remembering, the meticulous rendering of your self-questioning, are, in themselves, awesome! These are the things I’ve been seeking in a “healer,” and could never find–the self-examination, the learning in one’s soul that are the real factors that enable healing. (The integration into one’s self.) You told me, over, and over, what you were “feeling”! This is what I needed to know– not just somebody saying “visualize yourself whole!”
Thank you SO MUCH, Terry! With utmost respect and gratitude.
