"We need to encourage an understanding that inner peace comes from relying on human values like love, compassion, tolerance, and honesty, and that peace in the world relies on individuals finding inner peace." - His Holiness, the Dalai Lama
These 6 words - please heal my fear-based thoughts - change lives. In this brief and inspiring audiobook, based on Engle's study of A Course in Miracles, she explains how to use the prayer and experience immediate benefits:
A typical prayer goes something like this: "Please help us find the money to pay our mortgage this month." Saying the prayer may help you feel like the burden of that month's mortgage has been lifted, but the part of you that feeds on fear will simply seek out new financial worries to keep you awake at night. Old patterns remain intact.
In contrast, asking, "Please heal my fear-based thoughts about our mortgage" lifts the burden and relieves the need to re-create that fear and hold onto it. This prayer heals your very desire for burdens, your addiction to fear-based thoughts, freeing you to live without that fear and with greater peace of mind. As a result, your financial situation is also free to improve. That's what makes it so different.
One Facebook fan told Engle, "The most blessed aspect of this prayer is all the open space it creates for peace - I never knew how many fear-based thoughts were clogging up in me until… this prayer."

I don't review every book--only books I feel strongly about--hence the many 4-5 star vs 1-2 star reviews. Just my opinions--hope they help.
You know life just is not the simple recipe this book presents it to be. Bad things happen to people all the time whether they work hard and pray or not. This whole thing reminds me of working in hospice and having dying patients told by well meaning friends/family that if only they prayed harder they would get better. Painful & heart breaking. In my opinion, a waste of time with concepts that just sicken me.
this is a good book worthy of anybody's attention. I am going to give it to my friends and family
The overall message here is fairly simple but I want to relisten to this book straight away which is unheard of for me....and I've listened to a lot of self help. I feel I will get a lot from this gem of a book. enjoy
