Can we use words to make ourselves feel and actually be
better? Michael Morrison certainly thinks so, and in this
insightful guide he tells us about the transformational
power of language. In doing so, he delves into such
concepts as neuro-linguistic programming (NLP),
Lamarckian evolution theory, the Biology of Belief, Cell-
Level Healing, the power of prayer (in health as well as
sickness), the Gaia Hypothesis, and Earth Hour.
As current concerns move from the individual to the
global, our well-being is seen as holistic rather than
localised. Can we use positive thoughts and frame positive
words to change ourselves—and ultimately help our
world flourish? Read Prisoner of Words and discover a
new approach to old problems.
About the Author
For over a quarter century, Michael E Morrison was a robotic
disciple of Western medicine, relying on the latest wonder
drug to treat his cystic fibrosis. He reached his nadir with
conventional medicine when the head consultant referred to
him as “Twiggy,” and he realized that the treatments were
often making him worse, not better. He began looking at
alternative therapies, which understand the totality of illness.
He embarked on a spiritual journey, learning techniques to
unlock the physician within.
