Health is one of the major desires that so many people have. I myself have been challenged with multiple health issues, some of which I’ve overcome, and others still linger (for now). I’ve found some helpful books for manifesting health, which have assisted me on my journey to wholeness. May you find inspiration in their pages!
The suggestions in this post are not in any way medical advise, or meant to be a discouragement from obtaining care from a trained physician. You can use any suggestions written here or in the mentioned books in combination with medical care, if you so choose.
Where does illness come from?
Although there are many causes for illness, dis-ease basically suggests that there is a lack of ease and flow in the body. Something is causing blockages, resulting in a build up of energy in certain areas, and this is being expressed as sickness.
In Chinese medicine, the flow of a person’s life force, Qi, is the foundation of health. When the Qi energy is flowing smoothly and freely through the body, this promotes a highly functioning system, which can heal quickly, defend against bacterial and viral attacks, and perform at an overall high level.
When the flow of Qi gets blocked or restricted in any area, certain parts of the body don’t get enough life force, while others get a build up which results in an accumulation of toxins. This results in illness and disease.
What blocks the energy?
There can be many causes for a blockage of the energy flow. Usually multiple conditions will build upon one another and compound, and not any one thing is the culprit. Could be a combination of the unhealthy foods you eat, toxins you are exposed to, not caring for your body, your genetics (which you are capable of influencing), the unhealthy people in your life, negative thinking such as chronic stress and worry, trauma, and so on.
These situations can result in a restriction of the flow of energy. Each moment of fear and resistance to feeling pain that we haven’t let flow through us, gets lodged in our system. I’ve recently read The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer, and he equates these blockages to a thorn, which we avoid, trying not to bump or bother it so we don’t have to feel pain. But our avoidance is only allowing the blockage to continue to stifle our energy flow. We need to deal with the thorn, pull it out, and let it go.
Your belief will make you whole
On my journey to discovering my blockages and manifesting perfect health, I have turned to the stories of Jesus in the Bible. “Thy faith hath made thee whole.” He stated these words over and over to the people that he healed.
Ultimately, you can have all the best medical care, eat the healthiest diet, take all the herbs and do all the treatments, but if you don’t believe you can be well, none of these will matter.
Healing is a spiritual journey. The body heals itself, and healing ultimately comes from within.
I hope you will find your blocks and pull out the thorns that hinder your life force, allowing health to flow freely in your life. Declare it, and receive it!!
“I think that we’re all faced with great opportunities, brilliantly disguised as impossible situations, whether it’s an accident or a trauma where your body is injured or betrayal or a shock or a diagnosis.”

1- You Are the Placebo by Joe Dispenza
I love following the work that Joe Dispenza is doing! He is determined to show the scientific community that meditation, visualization, and a brain-heart coherence can manifest miraculous health changes. He uses advanced measuring devices to assess energy changes and magnetic increases that occur during his meditations. He’s shown amazing results, such as changes in gene expression, immune response, lowering of cortisol, and even remissions of disease.
This book will inspire you and prompt you to question everything you think you know about where health actually comes from. The placebo effect proves that the actual medicine designed to facilitate health, is not as important as the belief of the person taking it.
We are so much more than just the chemicals and physical makeup of our bodies. We are energy! And energy is manipulated by our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions. Dispenza believes that many illnesses are the result of past negative emotions that we have not released, and which continue to effect our lives.
Meditation and visualization is a an important aspect to changing the energy of your body. Dispenza famously used visualization to heal his spinal cord after a terrible accident, where a car hit him on his bicycle at 55 mph, crushing multiple vertebrae. He didn’t get the surgery that the doctors suggested, and instead visualized for hours every day. He imagined each one of his vertebrae mending themselves and becoming whole in great detail. And it happened!
Believe in miracles, and believe in your body’s ability to heal. Check out this book and be inspired 💜.
2- The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton
I love that more and more scientists are realizing the spiritual aspect of health, and the important part this aspect plays in our human reality. Bruce Lipton is a cell biologist, who pioneered the scientific discoveries of stem cells and epigenetics. In his research, he was struck with the realization that genes do not control what is expressed in the body. That actually, the environment of the cell influences what the cell does, including what body part a stem cell becomes, and which genes are turned on and off.
Lipton, who had been an atheist for many years, had a profound experience of a voice speaking in his head, guiding him to his discovery of epigenetics. His breakthrough discovery led him to believe that our thoughts and beliefs are the instruction that we give to our cells, which opened him up to other spiritual possibilities. If our body is just the antennae that receives a signal, where does the signal come from. Who are we really?
I love diving into these ideas! The release of being a victim to our genes or “circumstances”, allows for empowerment and possibilities. If our beliefs control the signal we give our bodies, then we can change the signal. Reprogramming our subconscious mind to new beliefs is not only possible, its inevitable after you read this book.
Change your thoughts and emotions, and you will change the energy of your body. The mind-body connection is the secret to healing and transformation. Take your power back!
“You’ll never create good health by talking or thinking about your illness. Good health comes from love and appreciation. You want to put as much love into your body as you possibly can. Talk to it and stroke it in loving ways. If there’s a part of your body that’s ailing or dis-eased, then you want to treat it as you would a sick little child. Tell it how much you love it, and that you’re doing everything you can to help it get well quickly.”
3- You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay
Louise Hay is a perfect example of how past trauma can influence health, and also that it can be overcome by releasing negative emotions, and promoting positives thoughts and new beliefs.
Louise Hay had a tumultuous childhood, including sexual trauma up to the age of 15, a teenage pregnancy which she had to give up for adoption, and a long marriage that ended when her husband decided to leave her for another woman. When her husband left, she searched for answers to happiness, and found them in the New Thought movement and the Church of Religious Science community.
Hay immersed herself in the church, studying New Thought books from authors such as Florence Scovel Shinn (The Game of Life and How to Play It), and practicing Transcendental Meditation. She became a counselor at the church, which became her full-time profession (I don’t think she was ever certified, I could be wrong).
Louise created a reference guide for physical ailments and their psychological causes, which she put to the test when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Instead of getting surgery or chemo therapy as was suggested by doctors, she put herself on an intense program of healing for her mind/body/spirit; this program included affirmations, psychotherapy, visualization, health cleanses and diet. She healed her cancer in 6 months! Check this book out and heal your life!
4- Heal by Kelly Noonan Gores
I actually didn’t read this book, but I watched the movie on Tubi which the book was based on. I was so excited while I watched it! The ideas expressed by scientists, doctors, and self-help leaders, as well as the miraculous testimonies of healing, are undeniable.
What stood out the most to me, was the divergent idea that we don’t have to accept a diagnosis from a doctor as the final word. In many cases, a person gives all authority to manifest health over to the medical field, become victims to a prognosis, and resign themselves to their fate. However, there is a healing power within each person, and no one needs to resign themselves to being a statistic.
Our bodies are designed to heal themselves. If there is illness, then there is a cause. Just performing surgery, or taking some drugs to deal with symptoms, could prolong life temporarily, but is not necessarily going to deal with the root cause.
This documentary shares views from leaders such as Dr. Deepak Chopra, Anita Moorjani, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Dr. Joe Dispenza, and more. You will also follow the miraculous healing journey of Elizabeth Craig from stage 4 colorectal cancer, of which the doctors later determined must have been a “misdiagnoses”.
Check this documentary out, and stimulate the idea that there could be other aspects to healing than what we are traditionally taught. ✨
“Your subconscious mind is principle and works according to the law of belief… All your experiences, events, conditions, and acts are the reactions of your subconscious mind to your thoughts.”
5- The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy
I had to include this book! Throughout the book, health and healing is mentioned multiple times. I don’t think real (or lasting) healing can occur without reprogramming the subconscious mind.
The subconscious mind controls our bodily functions, directs our habits, and basically determines 90% of what we experience in our daily life. We are programmed as children by parents, teachers, and peers. We also allow other “authorities” to continue to program us throughout our lives and determine what we think and believe.
Our programming will affect our health. If we think negatively, feel like victims, and accept dis-empowering suggestions, this will manifest in dis-ease. The body can only take so much!
This book will reveal ways to reprogram your subconscious and change your beliefs to serve you in anything you want to manifest, including healing. There are stories of people healing skin malignancies, reforming atrophied optic nerves, and spontaneous healings at spiritual shrines across the world. Belief in healing cultivated by self-suggestion, visualization, prayer, and other mental techniques will aid you in your journey to perfect health.
Learn how to build a relationship with and direct your powerful subconscious mind to work many wonderful transformations in your life! Everything is possible to your subconscious mind. 💖
Believe health is possible for you
My wish is that you never resign yourself to illness. There is hope. Many have tapped into a healing energy that cannot be explained by science (yet). And that same energy is available to everyone.
I plan on learning what the universe is trying to teach me. I intend to go deeper every day. This journey continues to reveal even deeper layers of past emotions for me to release. I’m determined to free myself, no matter what!
There is a reason for disease, and a lesson to be learned, as well as growth to be experienced.
Above all, follow the guidance from your inner self. You will never be led wrong.
Love and healing to you!! 💕
