Imagine if your body came with an owner and operator’s manual that gave you insights into the care and feeding of this marvelous work of creation and creativity. It could tell you what to do to prevent dis-ease or at least have skill in ameliorating the wear and tear. Imagine no longer, since it is here in the form of the book The Secret Language of Your Body, written by the multi-culturally adept speaker, writer and healer Inna Segal. Born in Belarus, she now lives with her husband and two children in Australia.
The book is a literal tool kit of descriptions and metaphorical/symbolic possible causal factors for physical and psychological conditions ranging from abdominal cramps to vertigo, from measles to itching, from depression to cancer. It delves into body systems as well, offering remedies in the form of a dialog with these parts. Lest you think the book in any way blames the person for having a particular condition, it offers an inquiry, not an inquistion.
As I paged through the book, I found it to be on target as I pinpointed some of my own health issues and the interventive response to them. Segal also incorporates the use of color as healing tools, indicating both the restorative properties and a cautionary note about using them in excess.
Her work/calling became clear to Segal when she developed a series of medical conditions that she incorporated these methods to treat. She taps into Divine Healing Intelligence every step of the way and has witnessed dramatic results in her own life, as well as those who have taken heed of the techniques in the book.
The writing style makes these concepts easy to grasp and use immediately. She laughingly says that her work is described as “Louise Hay on steroids.”, paying homage to the pioneer of mind-body-spirit teachings whose best selling book You Can Heal Your Life has a similar feel to it.
Segal is careful to note that the information found in the book is not a replacement for medical care and treatment.
