I read Opening to Healing from cover to cover today — it was a beautiful experience. It is inspiring, uplifting, and educational. The love and compassion, and opportunity within it for movement, growth, and grace are palpable. Congratulations on this wonderful book!

A book like this could not have come at a better time. The whole world should read it!

I would recommend this book to anyone although, in my view, the students of the Michael Teaching (MT), readers interested in deepening their understanding of the energy work, those who are seeking help in their healing journey and those looking to support others going through their illness/healing, may appreciate it the most. I heard a lot about the power of the mind over the body but here I got the feeling I was at the source of that type of teaching, with a better understanding on the why it works. The book has the strength of the MT, explains principles and provides many technics. It is addressing 27 different aspects of illness/healing including the roles of the spiritual body and the commitments 24/7. For some, the book may have the weakness of being a selection of teaching, not a full well-structured course on the matter. Nonetheless it has become my number one reference book on that topic.

Excellent book about both healing and healthy living. This is a book dealing with healing that while based around the Michael teachings, is applicable to nearly any type of healing situation, regardless of the background of the reader. It is broken down into many sections, each dealing with different aspects of both healing and health in general. The subject matter ranges from traditional medical and psychological approaches to health to the Metaphysical aspects of the Michael teachings. It is useful for practitioners and patients of both traditional and alternative medicine, due to it’s wide scope. The chapters flow easily from one to the next, covering nearly every type of health issue from physical and emotional health to life and death issues. The material is very easy to understand and apply to everyday life, whether one is well-versed in the Michael teachings, or has never heard of “channeling” before. It helps one to realize that they are not alone in their struggles, whatever they may be, and that there are many different angles to solving whatever health issues may exist. Even though it covers a wide range of topics, all of the info flows seamlessly together into a very coherent book, that is not only useful in treating illness and staying healthy, but is also a great, new perspective on how to view life in general. People who are familiar with the Michael teachings will find it especially interesting; as it is a page turner that uses just the right amount of “Michael” humor and real-life examples to tie all of the information together, without becoming a dry medical journal. I personally used several of the techniques in the book to help me through some hard times with so-called “incurable” disease, that was not incurable- just misunderstood by traditional medicine.

A must read! “Spiritual malnutrition is eventually more debilitating than physical hunger.” This material is proper physics; it is a wise & patient vantage on our integration of spirit & matter. Demystifying; Extremely Practical – A REAL LEG UP. The Title Is Apt, Would That All Embrace It. Kudos To Shepherd & Michael.

I find this book to be both practical and encouraging. I’ve gone back to it many times and I am energized each time by the sensible take on the process of healing and growing. It is very positive in it’s approach to healing either yourself or someone else. If we get out of our own way, healing will happen.

Full of practical wisdom. I really enjoyed this book. It was filled with practical wisdom and was a refreshing take on healing. It has helped me to understand how I can open to healing on my own life. I have found all the books in this series (so far) to speak so clearly to the core issues and to cut through the notion that the ‘new age’ stuff is fluffy; to me it seems highly practical. There is a clarity and truth that rings out through the pages. I also enjoyed the book Loving from your Soul by the same author.

Another lovely book of Michael channeled content from Shepherd. Even if you don’t follow the Michael Teachings, many of Shepherd’s books are very enriching to read. This book might just give you access to some tools to healing that you didn’t know you already carried with you and it does so in the gentlest of ways. A welcome antidote to the current age we live in.
