Reverse Dictionary. Popular Searches. Here's a list of the sites that I'm currently working on: reverse dictionary is a website that allows you to find words based on their definition. In other words, it turns sentences or phrases into words. Give the engine a seed word and it will find a huge list of related words. It allows you to do a broader search than a thesaurus allows. It helps you find inspiration for describing things.
It inclides lists of new songs from all major genres from hip-hop to classical and everything in between. I was intrigued by the concept of the book given my appreciation for both the scientific and spiritual worlds: the discipline of the first and the faith of the second. For some time I've thought that the realm of quantum physics intersects the best with the spiritual world and I smile when I see how those two worlds align, I struggled mightily to finish this book.
For some time I've thought that the realm of quantum physics intersects the best with the spiritual world and I smile when I see how those two worlds align, as it does some in this book now and then. However as a Christian whose faith often waivers, I read this book precisely because I have come to wonder if prayer works at all.
I found it incredibly helpful to hear the various tests conducted that draw conclusions on the efficacy of local and non-local interactions, and of praying for specific outcomes versus the best possible outcome. It gave me a certain level of comfort to know there is legitimate benefit to prayerful ways of being, for both the one praying and those being prayed for. I was left feeling convinced that our thoughts including prayers carry more weight than we realize and that there is most certainly scientific support for the parts of us that are eternal.

I spotted this book on a friend's desk a year or so ago and finally decided to read it. I appreciated the author's affinity for analytical psychology and his non-sectarian and non-dogmatic view of God. One could have interpreted some of the studies he provides as examples for the effectiveness of prayer either way and sometimes I wondered why his examples seemed to disprove his thesis.

Really interesting topic, but I felt the book was poorly written. I'd heard good things, so I was disappointed. I really wanted it to be better!

It was good to know that compassionate thoughts of one person can transmit to another ill person without consideration of time and space. Illness can seen as something we need to go through and take some lessons out of it. May 17, Min added it Shelves: quit. This book is in the recommendation reading list of the book "Creative Visualization" by Shakti Gawain. For me personally, this book is too theoretical and difficult to understand, the logic of the author is hard for me to follow.
Jan 04, Ross Newkirk rated it it was amazing. This is a good book.
It shows you the power healing prayer has on people and its profound effects. It uses documented science and cases to show the validity. May 18, Careful rated it liked it Shelves: zz-dossey-larry , health , zz-dorsey-larry.
Excellent point: the words we speak and hear affect our health, and the words from scripture are words the most effective. The very in-depth analysis in this book gets a little long-winded for me.

Jul 23, Ron Wroblewski rated it it was amazing Shelves: larry-dossey , alternative-medicine. Wonderful book. Highly recommended. Shows that prayer is an effective modality in healing. May 13, Helynne rated it really liked it. Interestingly, even people who do not know they are being prayed for tend to do better as well. The tendency is always to accord wisdom to something or someone outside ourselves. Dossey includes many studies and statistic about illness and prayer that have been conducted over several years among sick people.
I confess that I did not examine the statistics and other details of the studies very closely, but I was impressed with the interesting outcomes. It will become increasingly recognized that consciousness can do things the brain cannot Apr 27, R. This fascinating book, written by Larry Dossey, MD, examines the existing research on the effect of healing prayer on health. The conclusion -- prayer heals. Dossey is the former Chief of Staff of Humana Medical City in Dallas TX and spent years firmly believing in strict science and traditional Western medicine as the tools for healing.
While coming to grips with his own spiritual life, Dossey discovered that prayer does indeed compliment tradition medicine and sometimes heals.
GOD'S WORD TO WOMEN
H This fascinating book, written by Larry Dossey, MD, examines the existing research on the effect of healing prayer on health. Hundreds of scientific studies have been conducted on the effect of prayer, the results of which have been nearly ignored by the medical and research communities. Despite conducting experiements according to rigorous scientific method, both their methods and results are mostly proclaimed as flawed, disputed, or generally looked down upon by mainstream medicine.
However, the evidence that prayer, or the power of the human mind can effect health, is significant. When compared to the control group, the "prayed-for" patients were three times less likely to develop pulmonary edema. None of the group required endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation, while 12 in the "non prayed-for" group did.

And, compared to the control group, the prayed-for patients were five times less likely to need antibiotics. The results were positive and some members of the subject group "saw" the visualizations they were sent. Dossey is clear that healing through prayer can't always be measured, doesn't always work and can't be reproduced on command. But, Healing Words dramatically shows what people of faith have long believed -- prayer heals. This book helped in my transition from simply praying to God as object outside - like the Post Office we drop a note off to for it to deliver - to do what I was wanting that object to do, which was the teaching I had previously received, to seeing prayer entails the engaging of an energy-power-within that itself connects with the other one is praying for: really, with, alongside.

I find, also, the sense that studies showed those we are already linked to empathically, prayers for them show to be more efficacious. Prayer being a creative act we are endowed with appeared more sensible than what I had been taught, prayer now seen as communion with the other, a direct act of our loving another.
