About Martha Love’s Book What’s Behind Your Belly Button
“What’s Behind Your Belly Button? A Psychological Perspective of the Intelligence of Human Nature and Gut Instinct”
By Martha Char Love and Robert W. Sterling
Paperback: 328 pages
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (November 8, 2011)
“What’s Behind Your Belly Button?” explains exactly what your gut feelings are capable of telling you about your inner instinctive needs, how to listen to the voice of your gut, and how to use both of your brains—head and gut—to work together for your optimal health and well-being. This book is recommended for anyone looking for a hopeful view of humankind and a method for getting in touch with gut instincts to reduce stress, cope with fear and anxiety, deal with health issues and make efforts to stay healthy, and to increase optimal problem-solving and life decision-making abilities.
Although numerous books and articles have recently talked about the gut instincts as valuable in giving us useful hunches in the decision-making process, “What’s Behind Your Belly Button?” goes much further and explains how gut feelings not only have a psychological intelligence of their own, but are also understandably rational in their functioning and reflect in their own voice how well the two instinctive human needs of acceptance and of control of one’s own responses in our lives are being met. They share a complete protocol and results of clinical research findings for the Somatic Reflection Process that they have created and used successfully with over 40 years experience to assist the process of getting in touch with the voice of the gut and learning to follow its wisdom toward a healthy life—unifying the body-mind split in the individuation process and increasing access to one’s intuition. While the authors make this material easy to understand, the psychological explanations of gut intelligence and instincts in this book are comprehensive, well-researched, and based upon clinical studies with hundreds of people in counseling sessions by the authors.
