Dr. Kofi Kondwani, Assistant Professor at Morehouse School of Medicine writes:
Doctors or healers may prescribe to you what will get you well, even if they are sick themselves. A good psychic can tell you what lies ahead for you, but is unable to avert their own downfall. I have been teaching self-healing through meditation for more than 40 years; yet I am in need of healing myself. I can teach individuals or groups how to reduce their thinking, which in-turn allows their bodies to heal and purify; yet my body still expresses symptoms of diabetes and hypertension.
Self-love and self-care are too often missing from our own toolbox of things we do to master our craft to help heal others. The Hon. Akhenaten S’L’M-Bey and Ms. Versandra Kennebrew have compiled this book to help us understand the importance of loving ourselves. They have provided practical tips throughout the book that we can use personally and share with others at the same time. The authors identify key mistakes of healers which include; spiritually, mentally or physically taking on the pain and stress of clients. When clients are releasing stress, fatigue and pain; where does it go next? Matter and energy cannot be destroyed. They can only be transformed or transferred. Too often it is the healer who draws out, then sucks in the very things client ejects as a result of our services.
“I Love Me,” lists very clear tips and techniques that can buffer effects that negative energy can have on our minds, bodies, behavior, and business success. This book identifies symptoms that may appear and solidify in our bodies as we struggle to help others. It provides positive affirmations, activities and lifestyles adjustments to improve our self-care routines. This book is not to be read just once. It is a resource guide to remind us to routinely nurture and cleanse ourselves.
I will incorporate advice from this book into my life. I want to live a happy healthy life while doing my best to help others do the same. “I Love Me, The Ultimate Self-Care Guide for Healing Artists” has been especially prepared for us who tend to care more for others than ourselves. Let’s do both, self-care and care for others. It is this priceless combination that will assure our longevity as well as our clients.
