It is No Longer a Secret -- New Book Reveals the Profound Connection Between the Subconscious and Your Present, as Well as Your Future
GRASS VALLEY, Calif., July 12, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Donna T. Haddad's Looking At The World Through a Fractured Lens is a non-fiction work that combines Haddad's personal experiences and knowledge gained through professional training, in addition to wisdom and insight gained through working with clients. This book presents a different and rarely explored view on the causes of many of the conditions of "dis-ease", illnesses, addictions, and deeply felt anxieties experienced by thousands of people every day. In relation to this, readers will learn that the residue of our past is imprinted and stored in the body and the subconscious mind, and has shaped our beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. The experiences and feelings presented in the book are universal, and ones that everyone can relate to in one way or another. Ultimately, Looking At The World Through a Fractured Lens will help people to understand that the effects of our past, and the lingering effects of grief can be released and the subconscious can be a fertile ground to re-plant the seeds for all that we want in our lives. It will also help adults realize how their pain is passed on to the children.
