One Mind: A book review

One Mind Book Cover from Good Reads

One Mind

How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

by Larry Dossey, MD, Hay House (October 1, 2013)

When I first read the book jacket for Dr. Larry Dossey’s One Mind, I thought this could just be another book that takes psychic phenomena and makes it the subject of science. I was pleasantly surprised after I began reading.

As an internal medicine physician, Dr. Dossey has experienced both the science and spirit of healing the body and mind first hand. The “miracle cures” of his patients drew him into studying alternative medicines. This thirst for understanding had him sharing his discoveries by authoring 12 books and serving as Executive Editors of the journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine and currently for Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing.

He cites evidence that shared knowledge and perceptions at distant ranges are possible and even common. Dr. Dossey pulls data from research and provides us with illustrative stories, near-death descriptions, and remote viewings. He fills his pages with many interesting stories. Some of his shared-knowledge and emotion examples I have also witnessed between people who are close – maybe you have, too. Other examples include people communicating to their pets, messages from someone who has died, and even finding lost objects through mental perceptions.

Dr. Dossey covers such a diverse set of subjects that I found his book mind-expanding. He addresses the mind beyond the brain, immortality, near-death experiences, reincarnations, savants, twins, and self-healing to name a few topics. He seamlessly shows us how these phenomena provide evidence for “one mind” and our shared dimensions. It is a very interesting and easy read book.

If you would like to explore more about psi phenomena, this would be a good book for you to read.

My Holiday Message of 2019

 “How did it get so late so soon?”

~~ Dr. Seuss

Dear readers,

When I found that Dr. Seuss quote, I thought, “My sentiments exactly. How can it already be December?” It seems like only yesterday when we were planning our Ireland vacation.

December brings with it many celebrations, family dinners, and unconditional excitement. When I practiced as a therapist, I remember helping many patients who struggled through the holidays. It felt good to be there for them. We all know that life can bring many joys and lows as we approach the new year, so be sure to take care of yourself. Remember, you need to be healthy in body, mind, and spirit to help others.

I offer you some good advice this holiday season.

  1. Find “awe” in the ordinary. Take pleasure in a beautiful sunrise, a dog playing in the snow, a beautiful piece of music. This will help you slow down, breathe, and “smell the roses” which is so important at this time of the year.
  2. Stay optimistic. Read The Greater Good’s article on How to Prime Your Mind for Optimism. This article is especially good if you find yourself stressing. It’s a good read for anyone, really.

Peace dove from FlaticonMy wish for you and everyone is that this be a time of peace and love in your hearts and in your homes. I do hope you’re able to enjoy this holiday season surrounded by people who love you.

Happy December! Happy Winter Solstice! Happy Holidays!
