Gill's latest book is CONSCIOUS MEDICINE: Creating Health in a Conscious Universe (Piatkus, 2010).
Gill has been teaching and studying new paradigm medicine for nearly 30 years - and recent scientific research now shows what mystics have always known: that it is consciousness which controls and even creates the physical body. A diagnosis of breast cancer, after a prolonged period of emotional stress and unresolved conflict, gave Gill an ideal opportunity to 'walk her talk' - and to use a psycho-energetic approach to healing.
You can order the book below from our office, £12.99 (postage free within UK/Europe). All copies are signed by Gill, and can also be personalised for you or a friend:
Some reviews of Gill's book:
Medicine shows us how medicine could be if we
applied all that is known now about the body, its energies, and the
intelligent force fields that surround us and surge through us. The
book is expansive like the consciousness it describes, taking us on a
survey of some of the most exciting ideas and healing methods of the
past decade and putting them into a lively perspective. I
recommend it highly’
‘This is the New
Medicine. This is where we are going. This is it – expressed with
gentleness and wisdom’
highlights and expands a much-needed paradigm shift in healthcare. It
blends the latest understanding from quantum physics and the new
biology with Gill’s vast knowledge of today’s complementary
therapies, maintaining fluidity and accessibility throughout, which is
typical of her wonderful writing style. There are simple,
life-changing exercises in every chapter which are easily implemented
into everyday life. This book will teach you how to take your health
and well-being back into your own hands instead of relying on the
pharmaceutical industry. Buy this book to enhance your health, wealth
and happiness on so many levels’
needs to be read, understood and especially felt by anybody
working in any healthcare position, be it conventional or
complementary. My suggestion: read the text and feel the dawning shift
in medical approach of which this book is such a clear
Extracts from Gill's new book:
"Since health lies at the interface between mind and matter, conscious medicine offers a crucial stepping stone out of materialism and duality, and into the new paradigm based upon energy-consciousness – in which mind moulds or translates itself into matter. As we look at the implications of the new physics, the latest research in biology, and case studies emerging from new-paradigm medicine and energy healing, we begin to see that creating health and vitality depends upon our state of consciousness. Then we begin to step into the world of conscious medicine – and into a conscious universe."
"Thirty years ago, I read about a holistic doctor who saw a little boy with measles, and told his mother that her child was ‘measling’. This turn of phrase always stuck in my mind, and I have heard any diagnosis as a verb ever since. When I was given a cancer diagnosis, I translated this into ‘cancering’, and began to ask myself how I was cancering, and what I needed to do in order to stop cancering and start ‘well-ing’. As soon as you convert a diagnosis into a verb, it ceases to be a thing with an independent existence, and instead becomes part of what you are being and doing: how you are thinking and feeling and behaving. You switch from a materialist paradigm – a world full of objects – into consciousness thinking, with a world inhabited by actively participating subjects. If you are being and doing it, you can explore it and understand it, find meaning and purpose in it, and perhaps choose to ‘be’ or ‘do’ something different."
"I have learnt from experience that if you mention the word ‘energy’ to most medical doctors, their eyes tend to glaze over. The word simply doesn’t compute. It is like talking about mountaineering to a goldfish. So I have slowly learnt how to build bridges between their world and mine, so that we can begin to understand each other. Talking about the body as an energy system makes no sense to someone whose left brain has been thoroughly trained to name, probe and even dissect innumerable ‘separate parts’ of the human body. Energy is a right-brain concept. It does not have fixed boundaries; it is mutable and flexible, and can make quantum leaps. The more left-brained someone is, the less they understand energy – or appreciate poetry. (Which isn’t to say that all the doctors I know are left-brained or indifferent to poetry – but they have had to struggle to retain their right brain!) To step fully into the new paradigm, we have to expand beyond the stressed, limited, either-or and separatist thinking of the ego, and align with our higher self."
"Conventional medicine goes into battle with illness and disease. It shoots the messenger – silencing warning signals from body that something is awry, that energy-consciousness is not flowing freely. It sees the body as stupid and faulty and inadequate, and needing to be propped up. Could it be that the model of the world that conventional medicine is built upon is the very model that makes us sick – a fear-based, materialist model based on separation from love and oneness? As Einstein said, you cannot solve a problem from the same level of thinking which caused it. So we cannot resolve disease, which is caused by the stress response (or thinking like a particle) using an approach which is based upon that same level of thinking: particle thinking and a battle mentality. It is like trying to melt an ice-cube using an icecream. You have to shift into a different level of awareness. Hot air, for example, would melt that ice-cube. Yes, hot air is invisible stuff – but then, that is just what is needed. A different category of ‘stuff. Invisible stuff, such as mind-stuff. A higher level of intervention. And perhaps we are seeing so much chronic and degenerative disease now, which conventional medicine can do so little about, because we are being forced to shift to a higher level of consciousness? From a conscious medicine perspective, the body is intelligent and conscious and infinitely helpful, and nothing is incurable or terminal - unless you believe that it is."
"Why does one person become diabetic or arthritic in response to chronic stress, while someone else develops an ulcer or kidney stones? We have seen that when the stress response is activated, we feel negative emotion – and if this becomes chronic, emotional or physical dis-ease is eventually set up. But what determines what form a dis-ease will take? Conventional medicine would point towards genes, exposure to viruses and toxins, and other physical factors. Conscious medicine is more poetic and dream-like. Just as quantum physics restored consciousness to science, conscious medicine restores meaning to illness and dis-ease. We live in a universe in which everything is energy-consciousness, and everything communicates in meaningful ways. Illness and the body are no exceptions."
"The body is a mirror of our consciousness – like everything else in our lives. As we shift from the particle response to the wave response, our consciousness expands and we see a bigger picture. We shift away from being helpless victims, or desperately trying to control life through manipulation or threats or criticism, or fending off danger and disapproval by scrabbling to be good and perfect – and we move towards being powerful and loving co-creators with the unseen forces of the universe. There are no enemies any more, for everything is a friend. There is no ‘me’ and ‘not-me’; there is only love and oneness. We are aware of our individuality, and value our own uniqueness; but we are waves within the ocean, forever connected. Our soul slips laughing through the old prison bars of guilt and blame. Fear is impossible. Loneliness is a distant memory. The world comes alive to us. The rocks, clouds and butterflies speak to us. Time expands into the endless opportunities of a hazy summer day. We are free at last. We are bathed in an ocean of unconditional love. And our body shimmers with health, vitality and radiance."

The pioneering work of scientists such as Bruce Lipton, Candace Pert, the Institute of HeartMath and many others now shows that - as the ancients knew - a healthy mind creates a healthy body. Energy psychology is also transforming our understanding of the links between energy, trauma, emotions and the physical body. When we live with fear, guilt, shame, anger, blame and other negative emotions, or harbor unresolved conflicts and traumas, unlived dreams and feelings of disempowerment, our physical body produces stress hormones, goes into emergency mode, blocks our personal growth and even activates unhealthy genes, which eventually produces physical symptoms and dis-ease – as well as threatening our mental health and relationships. Unhealthy neural pathways (or negative beliefs) are often set up in childhood, but they can be changed.
When we focus upon love, joy, freedom, creativity, authenticity and empowerment – or move beyond guilt, despair or disempowerment to healthy anger and beyond – our body mirrors our connection to our higher self. If we focus healthcare upon the physical body, we are missing the point – since the bodymind functions as an undivided whole. Health depends upon our emotional state, habits of thought, patterns of relating and consciousness. As molecular biologist Bruce Lipton says, "The mind controls our body". And when Source energy is flowing freely through us, we are vibrantly healthy and happy.
Since health lies at the interface between mind and matter, the emergent new paradigm in medicine is a powerful force in shifting from our old mechanistic, materialistic and dualistic way-of-seeing into a holistic awareness based on energy-consciousness – in which miracles occur often, and health is our natural state of being.
Within the new paradigm, dis-ease (whether physical or emotional) is always a sign of contradictory energy—of resistance. The body is simply a mirror of your consciousness. Conscious Medicine explores the vibrational roots of illness and disease, and how to release the happiness and well-being which is your natural birthright—whatever your starting point.
