The Miracle Ball Method

As a young dancer Elaine Petrone suffered a crippling back injury. Orthopedists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and others told her she might never walk again without a cane. Unwilling to accept pain and inactivity, she set out to find a way to heal herself. Her quest for health in the world of alternative medicine and body work resulted in the creation of her own method of pain relief- The Miracle Ball Method. She discovered that by letting her body’s weight be absorbed by two small balls, breathing fully, and performing some simple un-exercises, her own body was able to cure itself. She has dedicated her life to showing others the power of the balls and of their own bodies.

deepak chopra - magical mind magical body

I have listened to this wonderful book written by Deepak Chopra about how the human body can heal itself and how your positive thoughts can bring healing. I have had  SOOOOO many days where the pain is so great that it is difficult to feel "sunny and warm". On these days I try to find things I am grateful for.  

There is also a workbook that accompanies this book. It can be downloaded HERE

Eckhart Tolle - a New Earth Ch 01 - Oprah 2008

I have listened to all 10 of these webcasts during my therapy over the last few months. I've tried reading the book but my head is too shaky for reading! Excellent way to raise your level of awareness about how you think and how your thoughts affect your spirituality, behavior and health.
