Yes I to have encounter this power of healing with reading and listening to the Book entitled
"All in Awe" by William E. Gray. I have found that after listen to the audio my pain in
my back was
relieved and stress was gone. Meditation is the key to all pains, aches and
mental stress. Sri Hartuti/ inspectortuti007@msn.com
