Goodbye, Hurt & Pain

By

Don’t Let Your Innermost Emotions Stop Your Potential

Goodbye, Hurt & Pain is a unique guide that applies a cutting-edge approach to using revolutionary science to teach you how to discover your hidden feelings and turn them from negative to positive.

Emotions are invisible, taken for granted, and dismissed much of the time─a paradox given they are some of the most powerful forces on Earth. They inflame wars, induce death, inspire invention, and control stock markets. More importantly, each of us has them─all the time.

Blocked feelings block potential. Deborah Sandella uses advanced neuroscience research and her revolutionary Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM) technique to show how blocked feelings prevent us from getting what we want. She introduces a process that bypasses logic and thinking to activate our own emotional "self-cleaning oven." Using imagination, color, and shape to visualize feelings and get straight to the root of longstanding problems, she teaches us to:

  • Move destructive feelings envy out of the body
  • Let go of old feelings and traumatic memories
  • Feel and look like the best version of ourselves

Discover the seven organic ways of using your feelings to attract more love, better health, and greater success. Become better in all aspects of your life with your personal guide to unlocking the ultimate version of you.

If you enjoyed books like The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ckThe Book of Joy, or Atomic Habits, then you’ll want to read Goodbye, Hurt & Pain.

Guant�namo Bay

By

In January 2002, an editor at the Miami Herald dispatched correspondent Carol Rosenberg to report on an emerging U.S. military mission at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. The Pentagon was setting up a war on terror prison at Camp X-Ray. She called it The Alcatraz of the Caribbean. She saw U.S. Marines walk the first 20 prisoners off a U.S. Air Force cargo plane from Afghanistan looking like a poor man’s Hannibal Lecter – in orange jumpsuits and shackles and surgical masks and blackout goggles. Hundreds more would follow, and hundreds got to go, nine of them dead. And her assignment is still not over. For 15 years Carol Rosenberg has reported about the U.S. Navy base called Gitmo. The newspaper called it The Most Expensive Prison on Earth first, by White House estimates $5.6 million a year per prisoner. The newspaper calls the indefinite detainees forever prisoners, captives of a global war against an enemy with no leader to surrender. This Herald Books edition offers a unique perspective on the people, policy, and place that strikes Rosenberg as the first no-exit-strategy, U.S. military enterprise since the Vietnam War. Her dispatches are inside.
