ABOUT THE BOOK

COMI is an instruction manual that explains the spiritual way to heal mental illness. Everything in life relates to the Self and your perfect care – or lack of care – of it. To get well, the patient must improve his/her attitudes about Self. The Self is the energy that allows you to breathe, think, and live as God incarnate. The reason thousands of people do not recover from chronic mental illness is because almost no one knows how, even though there are thousands of mental health professionals.
We all know by now that taking pills is not the answer. What really happens within the mind in mental illness has remained a mystery throughout the centuries. People who are mentally ill have unintentionally thought their way into this illness through misuse of their own thoughts. Because this is true, these people also have the ability to think their way out of it by reversing their thoughts, particularly their thoughts about Self. We always do have complete mental control over any of our illnesses – even mental illness. We just have no training in how to think correctly for our own well-being. If parents across the world would begin to teach their little children to love themselves while they are little, these children would grow up to be loving, functional adults, rather than empty dysfunctional sick people, and in time mental illness in all its forms would disappear from the earth. This book is designed for use by professionals in group therapy or by individuals seeking greater peace of mind.​

BOOK REVIEW

Book review by David Hennessee

“Mental illness is not something that happens to just a few people. It is a chronic worldwide problem that is caused because people do not know how to think correctly.”

Studies show that one in five Americans are afflicted with some form of mental illness during their lives, but two-thirds do not seek treatment due to feelings of shame. It is clear that effective treatments are needed, and author Harris, shaman and spiritual teacher, offers her thoughts on the problem of mental health. Her book outlines theories about the origins and causes of mental illness as well as coping and healing strategies for sufferers. Blending spiritual and positive thinking approaches, Harris affirms that all people contain the divine; however, in moments of pain, they can be invaded by evil spirits who create emotional suffering. Not metaphors, these spirits literally possess people and create symptoms. These malign invaders cause the negative thoughts that power mental illnesses. Therefore, drugs and diet changes will only temporarily soothe symptoms, not address the root causes of mental illness—invasive, enduring, and out-of-control destructive thought patterns.

This book makes a helpful distinction between transient negative thoughts and older, more entrenched thought patterns, which Harris labels “deep rolling thoughts.” Another concrete, promising strategy offered to combat negativity and foster mental health is the use of positive affirmations. Harris suggests taking control of damaging thoughts with mantras such as “I dissolve the need for self-destruction. I dissolve the need for self-persecution.” Readers not invested in a spiritual mindset may find the book’s attribution of mental illness to demonic beings hard to swallow. Additionally, those who believe the findings of science (that mental illnesses are often caused by chemical imbalances in the brain over which the patient has little if any control) may find the book’s treatment of this topic dismissive. However, in its insistence on the power of thought, the author’s book does present a strong case for the possibility of proactive, powerful self-healing.
