Empower Yourself Through Your Memories: Use the Lessons From Your Past to Create a Happy Present and Future is a nonfiction self-help book written by Frank Healy. Healy is a licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach. In the first two books of his series, Heal Your Memories, Change Your Life and The Ultimate Guide to Healing Your Past, Healy focused his attention on showing readers how to recover from hurtful memories of the past and how to gain insight and knowledge from those memories. In this third book, he shows how those memories can proactively be used to empower yourself and be used as a basis for building your optimal future. Healy’s own exceptionally fine memory was instrumental in motivating him to develop these skills. Rather than being bombarded by memories from every day of his life, he learned to sort his memories in such a way that painful, happy and mixed memories were stored separately, but later realized it was better still to use those painful memories as healing tools. In this book, he shows readers how to use them as “defining moments,” and he includes his own inspirational story as well as those of his clients.

Frank Healy’s nonfiction self-help book, Empower Yourself Through Your Memories, had a particularly intriguing premise for me. As someone who remembered events from each and every day of his life, how was the author able to keep from being overwhelmed by those memories? Healy’s book is filled with well-presented and useful tips for not only protecting yourself from those past memories, but actually utilizing your emotional and intellectual responses to them to achieve your goals, unencumbered by past expectations levied upon you by others. I especially appreciated reading his own and his clients’ stories on how they did just that based on the methods he describes in the book. Healy’s book is well-organized, and his instructions are clear and easy to work with. Empower Yourself Through Your Memories: Use the Lessons From Your Past to Create a Happy Future is highly recommended.

I LOVED this book. I'm one of those people who often feels stuck in the past. You know those nagging thoughts of "could've, should've,would've"
Well this book and the exercises at the end of each chapter were amazingly effective at calming my brain and soothing my soul.
Thank you Frank Healy!

Frank has a gift of photographic memory. He can recall every memory in his life with crystal clarity. Both the positive and the painful -- for fifty years, he has known the most precise details of each and every day, the minute details of everything – the date of the week, the weather, news and personal events -- both good and bad.
With this gift comes a need to purge those things that hurt and to release the baggage surrounding the unproductive recalling of the stinging words and actions of others.

In his book “Empower Yourself Through Your Memories “, Frank shares methods that he has used with success like, The Four Steps to Empowerment. He also provides real-life case studies’ outlining others challenges with painful life events and the associated memories, and their success too.

If you have a painful past that you would like to leave behind consider reading Frank’s latest book for tips on how to drop your distress. If Frank, one of the few people in the world who has documented Hyperthymesia, the condition of possessing an extremely detailed autobiographical memory that allows him to remember an abnormally vast number of their life experiences, can do it maybe you can too.

The title of this book is what first grabbed my attention. I am all about empowering myself and others, one of my main missions in life, so it became "a must" to get and look at. I found it to be an easy-to-read, interesting and very helpful book. I am in awe of Frank Healy's memory and insights. I appreciated the authentic sharing of the people whom he interviewed and honor the way they empowered themselves and overcame the life circumstances that could have kept them down.

Most importantly, the author gives us easy, comprehensive exercises for finding the memories and using them to find the positive and move to empowerment. I very much appreciated this book. Thank you.

There's so much in here that's useful. The stories about how various people have overcome such major obstacles to their success, happiness and personal empowerment are inspiring. A book that's well worth reading.

This is a solid book and well worth the time to read - the empowering messages it contains are the kind that we could all benefit from hearing more often.

In the introduction, the author says "You will learn how to use your memories, your thought, beliefs, opinions, your feelings, your imagination and will to take total control of your life and be the best person you can be," and this book delivers exactly that. He includes lots of examples that show how it's done.

Prior to reading his book, I'd used many of his philosophies in my own life and they really do work to help you feel happier, and accomplish things that at first glance, seem unrealistic. I also liked the part about how to deal with negative memories and how they can sometimes lead to one having negative beliefs (that aren't true) about oneself - the author's suggested way of dealing with it and correcting these untrue beliefs about ourselves are wise and bang on. These same principles can also be used to help heal from the after-effects of bad memories (we all have them... whether it's death of someone important to us, or some other trauma.) Read this book - it'll be a good investment of your time
