Have you ever felt that you were more sensitive than you wanted to be? Has anyone ever hurt your feelings, lied or broke a promise to you? Does the concept of "heart wounds" resonate with you on any level? Have you ever felt that things just don't work out for you the way they seem to for most other people? Do you feel that life has burdened you with obstacles you can't overcome? Does this statement make sense to you? " You can't get better with the same mind that got you sick " We need new knowledge and new thoughts in order to be healed
Imagine if you could learn how to eliminate things and thoughts that seemed to be blocking you from achieving a state of Happiness. Dr. Jeffrey Gurian shares in his book " Healing Your Heart, By Changing Your Mind- A Spiritual and Humorous Approach To Achieving Happiness" how he has learned through his own personal experience and through many years of study, to overcome all of the above and more. Burdened with a severe stutter well into his 20's and beyond, seemingly unable to be helped by therapy, combined with the often overwhelming confusion of A.D.D. he was faced with having to deal with that burden for the rest of his life. He engaged in negative thinking. Being "Graced" with the knowledge that there was really nothing wrong with him, he worked on basically "taking his mind apart", and examining all of his thoughts to see which of his thoughts were not valid, so he could replace them with positive thoughts". He used this technique to heal himself and go on to achieve all the things he feared he would never have, along the way becoming a husband, father, entrepreneur, and homeowner.
He also became a Cosmetic Dentist, a Clinical Prof. at a major New York university in the Oral Medicine/Oro-Facial Pain Department, a lecturer, a comedy writer for famous stars, a comedian, an author, a radio and television personality, and a Healer. It's this journey and how he did it that he wants to share with you The Spiritual approach, which is explained fully in the book, is that if something can work for one person it can work for every person because inherently we are all the same. We all have the same 46 chromosomes, the same brain and body parts and therefore are all capable of achieving great things in our lives.
And being one of the only doctors with a longtime successful career in comedy has given him a very unique perspective, allowing him to teach you how to incorporate humor into your life.Understanding things like "you can't change your past, the only thing you can change is your perspective of your past, ... thereby changing your future" is key to getting the most out of this book.
