Awaken Your Greater Health: How Energy Medicine Opens the Way To Healing is a nonfiction spiritual self-help book written by Heidi DuPree, RN CTN, an author and energy healing therapist. In her introduction, the author sets out a metaphorical tale about a wise, kind and powerful king who was deposed by a tyrannical peasant who confined him in a dungeon. The peasant then undid all the rulings and customs which the king had imposed in favor of a harsh, restrictive and repressive rule. The people in the kingdom chafed under the peasant’s rule and grew angry and quarrelsome, and wars between neighboring villages began to break out. DuPree uses this allegorical tale to show how our lower selves can take over and keep our higher selves from manifesting. Through a series of stories about her clients and their issues and awakenings, she shows, through the metaphor of regaining access to the castle, how one can get in touch with the higher self and understand more fully the machinations of the lower self and how to deal with them in a loving, healing and accepting manner. She includes a series of life skill lessons for readers to use in their own healing journey and an appendix with summations, instructions for tapping, and a list of recommended reading references.
Heidi DuPree’s nonfiction spiritual self-help book, Awaken Your Greater Health: How Energy Medicine Opens the Way To Healing, is an illuminating and inspiring guide for anyone who wants to use the energy resources that are at their disposal to enhance their wellness and well-being. I was impressed by the author’s ability to convey her theories and methodology through metaphor and story, and found the material to be well-presented and highly accessible. Her choices of case studies present varied situations which allow the reader access to more personalized guidance. I particularly enjoyed her ingenious comparison of her Energy Medical First-Aid tools to CPR techniques and her use of tapping as part of the energy healing process. Awaken Your Greater Health: How Energy Medicine Opens the Way To Healing is highly recommended.
