Publisher's Summary

Dr. Hensley shares with us a sampling of her favorite examples of these principles in action in Understanding Is the New Healing. Deeply personal firsthand accounts of healing and transformation that have taken place in the lives of her patients, clients, and in her own personal life, she will have you on the edge of your seat, laughing out loud and reaching for the tissues.

From other lifetimes to interactions with other worldly beings, Mary Helen shows us that the source of our pain and suffering is not always rooted in present time. She has lifted the veil between worlds for all to see and remember, inviting us to understand our way back to our own healing. Healing does not always mean that everything uncomfortable suddenly goes away. It means finding a way to deal with life’s inevitable obstacles in a way that honors your growth, celebrates your challenges, and accepts your human nature, unconditionally and with love.

One of the most unattainable notions for one who is suffering, either physically or emotionally, is the idea of envisioning what life could look like beyond the present time affliction of the soul. Having a vision based on hope for a more comfortable life is entirely different to envisioning and encoding a new thought process that would actually allow for a higher vibrational state of being to come to fruition. One begs for a new reality...the other creates it.

Critic Reviews

"You are holding in your hands the book: Understanding is the New Healing. You did not pick up this book by chance. Perhaps it is an answer to an unspoken question you have been asking about your Soul’s unfoldment, past lives, sacred wisdom and receptivity to Divine guidance. If those questions have been reverberating somewhere in your awareness this book may be a part of that answer. Through personal stories of healing and release of cellular memories that have blocked the flow of happiness and great reflections on insights regarding universal principles, you’ll be ushered into greater clarity and well-being. Dr. Mary Helen Hensley has woven together an extraordinary volume of spiritual inspiration that will bring great understanding and great healing. Read it and watch your life change for the better." (Richest Blessings, Michael Bernard Beckwith Founder & Spiritual Director, Agape International Spiritual Center author, Life Visioning and Spiritual Liberation)

"How do you explain Mary Helen Hensley? Yes, she came into this life a gifted child. Yes, she had a near- death experience that opened her up to worlds beyond this one. Yes, she is a doctor, healer, a metaphysical counselor, a medium, a seer between worlds. Mary Helen has discovered a secret. It’s not the what or why or how or when of life that heals. It’s understanding. What difference does it make if your problem can be traced to a past life, or if your breast cancer means the end of this one? Nestled at our very core, all of us, is the measure to our healing...that grace point between soul and personality where we confront the why between choice and result. Mary Helen takes us there via humorous tales of her own life, her mistakes, her patients and what they discovered. The honesty, the heart-stopping proof of success in this one book, is unlike anything else I have ever read. A real treasure!" (P.M.H. Atwater L.H.D., near-death researcher and author such books as A Manual for Developing Humans, Future Memory Children of the Fifth World, Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near Death Experience and Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story)

Creepy Background music

Great story and storyteller, but creepy, disturbing background music is so distracting and unnecessary. Disappointing that I can't tolerate listening to this.

Very Relaxing

I actually rather enjoyed this book, I really like the audio version being it is both read by the author and includes frequently based background music. It was extremely relaxing, I recommend listening before going to sleep. Mostly full of anecdotal stories it was more so entertaining than anything but did offer up some interesting perspectives.

one of the best books I've ever listened to

I was a little concerned to purchase this after reading the review about it being depressing. It is not! It is uplifting and hope-giving! Granted, you have to have already made the decision that "reality" might not be what we were led to believe it is. Mary Helen presents her information and stories with humor, compassion, and respect for every point of view.
i wish this book had never ended!!!

Wonderful Wonderful!!!

I have loved listening to every minute of Mary Helen's book! I have resonated with everything she has spoken about, and have a tremendous sense of hearing and being heard. Mary Helen speaks to a very deeply held understanding of the oneness of all life in the midst of duality that I have carried with me for many years. This conviction has run counter to the commonly held beliefs in our societies where victims and perpetrators of events are the norm, instead of players on the stage of life where every role plays a pivotal part in the drama of our every day. Her many stories went to the heart of so many of my own issues and experiences and I have wept copious tears as I've listened to the stories unfold. Blessing after blessing. I am tremendously grateful for the way Mary Helen embraces wholeheartedly the recognition of the inherent value in the duality of this one life. That part of me that has been fearful of speaking my own truth in regard to this knowing wants to roar in response, 'YES!! - IT IS SO!!' And what is extra wonderful is that I now I have a sense of contentment within me that I don't need to say a word, because the gift of the knowing makes everything all right - just as it is! However, grateful thanks are always worthy of saying. So may I Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou, Mary Helen. I especially appreciated that you read your book yourself.
