Much of the healing that has had to take place in building bone density has been inner healing–that is, the healing of my attitudes and emotions about myself and about life in general. For most of my life, I have believed that happiness was to be found outside myself, in my activities I engaged in and in the people I chose to associate with. I worked hard to maintain control my environment, trying to make sure I was safe from unexpected hardships and always seeking to do my job perfectly and fulfill my responsibilities which life had thrust on me. Underneath it all lay a pervasive fear that God would not take care of me and that I could not trust my own inner guidance from the Holy Spirit.

All that has changed over the past two years through reading the books that Dr. Steve and Dr. Rogers recommended, as well as other wonderful books that have crossed my path through the grace of God. The latest is a wonderful book by Lee Jampolsky, Ph.D., entitled Walking Through Walls. This book is an 8-week spiritual journey that “transforms our individual struggles into lasting serenity through an exploration of the eight self-actualizing qualities of: Honesty, Tolerance, Gentleness, Joy, Defenselessness, Generosity, Patience, and Open-Mindedness.” Each week I felt my level of peace increase and my level of worry diminish. I also learned something completely new to me: Joy does not come FROM the activity and people around us. Instead, joy comes from resting in the heart of God, and then we bring joy TO the activities and people in our lives.

After reading this book, I feel a new sense of peace and a definite reduction of inner stress. The perennial knot in my stomach has disappeared, and I feel a sense of excitement and trust that God is indeed with me, loving me and guiding me to new growth and greater joy. I can now believe with all my heart what Jesus said, “I came that they might have life–life to the fullest.”

    Hello, Dr. Jampolsky. How wonderful to hear from you! I enjoyed your book so much that I have bought three more: Smile for No Reason at All, Healing the Addictive Mind, and The Art of Trust. I have a question for you. You have written that children are not often taught to learn about their inner selves, but are instead left to “pick it up” somehow. I agree completely. As an 8th grade public school math teacher, I wondered if you might have suggestions as to how to work such teaching into my curriculum. Because I am a public school teacher, my hands are tied concerning the teaching of faith or religion…so I must find another way. Do you have any resources or guidelines that I might use in this regard? Thank you again for your kindness in writing me. With highest regard,

  2. Hi Kathy. I am the author of the book you are reading, and just wanted to let you know how happy I am that the book has helped you in these ways. Many blessings,

    Dr. Lee Jampolsky
