Now, I know what you are thinking *wiggling my finger* - "great, another reason to feel that mommy guilt because my children are getting chronic ear infections/coughs due to the environment at home" - NO, NO, NO!! The very premise of this book is to drop the negative thinking and guilt is prime suspect # 1. The point is to understand why your children might be getting sick and that very understanding and compassion may just prevent the illness from rearing its ugly head or help it disappear quicker than it would normally.
Still, I can appreciate, despite all my patronizing, that this is not the easiest concept to get one's head around. I am a bit of a self proclaimed geek when it comes to holistic therapies and so, as I once said in an early post , I literally want to jump up and down on the bed when I come across a new one :-) Nerd I am, yes.
I leave you with an affirmation from Ms. Hay which I would like all my readers to adopt:
"Today I release the need to blame anyone, including myself."
