This book is based on Awareness, Meditation, and Relaxation (AMR) to bring about healing, empowerment, and integration from the human person for a new awakening. Body awareness is the key to alleviation of suffering and illness. Our positive or negative thoughts, beliefs, mental images, color, and light have a positive or negative effect on our feelings. These feelings affect our body as positive or negative body sensations. Beyond a certain optimum level of positive or negative body sensations, toxins get accumulated in specific areas of the body and the result is illness in the body. In healing procedures positive and negative body sensations are made conscious and the effect of this awareness is utilized to optimize physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
