Your Body Speaks Your Mind
Decoding the Emotional, Psychological and
Spiritual Messages that Underlie Health
We all know how we cry tears when we are sad or get “butterflies” in our stomach when we are nervous. These are simple connections between the mind and the body that are easy for us to understand. But what about the bigger issues, when the body gets ill, diseased, or damaged?
Deb Shapiro has been working and teaching bodymind awareness for the past 25 years and is recognized by her peers as an intuitive expert. Her programs explore the language and meaning of the bodymind relationship, how feelings and thoughts are linked to specific body parts and how to find unresolved psycho/emotional issues in the body.
“From headaches and rashes to cancer and other life-threatening diseases, the symptoms and illnesses that manifest in your body are intricately linked to your mind and emotions. The truth is that you are little more than a chemistry set. All your thoughts and feelings get translated into chemicals that fire off throughout your body, altering the
chemical composition and behavior of your cells.”
Through Deb’s understanding, you learn the body’s language of symptoms, and soon discover that there is an extraordinarily intimate two-way communication going on that affects both your physical state and your mental and emotional health.
In her newly revised and updated UK bestseller, Deb shows you how to initiate this communication, and to decode the priceless information your body is giving you. You will learn:
• How unresolved psycho/emotional issues affect your health
• How feeling and thoughts are linked to specific body parts
• Specific steps you can take to heal your body with your mind and to healyour mind with your body
