Book Review: Touching the Light: Healing Body, Mind & Spirit by Merging with God Consciousness

Meg Blackburn Losey, Ph.D. is healer and the host of an internet radio program, as well as the author of numerous works on healing and consciousness (including the bestselling "Secret History of Consciousness”). She is a frequent contributor to numerous professional and general interest publications and magazines on the subject of health, healing and spirituality.

This book, Touching the Light: Healing Body, Mind & Spirit by Merging with God Consciousness, (Samuel Weiser Books, York, ME USA, 2011) tells the story of the making of a healer and shares the author’s wide-ranging and eclectic methods encompassing an extremely detailed and specific taxonomy of the energetic and biophysical energies that can assail the mind/body/spirit and the means for their removal.

As a young woman, the author's openness to her energetic environment and her awareness of spiritual realities unseen by others and of her healing gifts are discouraged and suppressed by woefully misinformed and misguided parents, teachers and elders. As an adult, though, she gradually rediscovers her gifts and her guides from other dimensions of reality to mature into a talented and resourceful healer. In pursuing that path, however, she fails to appreciate her own limitations and boundaries and eventually allows herself to become opened to the very energies she seeks to combat, becoming vulnerable to attack herself and ultimately afflicted with Stage III breast cancer. After seeking conventional medical treatment, she resumes her healing practice albeit with changes, both in her modes of work and in her self-awareness.

In this book, Dr. Losey shares her perceptions of reality, creation, the realities of our energetic bodies, along with her healing technique and some extremely useful and practical exercises in self-development.

Whether or not one shares the author’s views on healing, on the existence and reality of demons (AKA malevolent energetic entities), evil spirits and visiting extraterrestrials, this is a superlatively useful, deeply informative, and profoundly interesting book. I unhesitatingly recommend it to all students of the healing arts as well as experienced practitioners. Dr. Losey’s fresh approach and novel views and methods are like a breath of fresh air.
