Hope, Healing and WellBeing – The Power of Belief with Dr. Eldon Taylor

New York Times bestselling author of more than 300 books, articles and audio programs, Dr. Eldon Taylor, discusses his just-released book, I Believe: When What You Believe Matters. He shares some of the results of over 25 years of research, plus personal and other anecdotes that demonstrate how our beliefs affects our health, and personal and professional success. For example, when both an individual and his or her physician share the belief that a cure is possible, it’s much more likely that it will occur for those living with serious illnesses. Our environments and the inner messages we tell ourselves also have a profound effect upon healing and wellbeing. Eldon has developed a patented InnerTalk program and includes a free CD with his new book.

He also discusses the dichotomy between the value of visualizing good health and the need to detach from specific outcomes in order to empower healing. From a spiritual standpoint, when we turn our requests over to a greater plan and Higher Power, miracles happen. He shares an effective prayer for detaching: “This or something better according to the highest good of all concerned.” He recommends thinking of ourselves as an experience or verb, rather than a noun. When doing this, we define ourselves by the relationships we have with others rather than material possessions. To Eldon, integrity is the foundation of his most important beliefs and values.

At the end of the interview, Mary shares a ‘meant to be’ story about three signs that recently brought comfort to a grieving mother. For more information about Eldon Taylor and how you can obtain numerous gifts (including a free gift from Mary) after purchasing his new book, please visit
