See it. Say it. Do It! by Dr Lynn Hellerstein
It is an honor to say that I know Lynn Hellerstein, OD, author of See it. Say it. Do It! She not only further boosted my performance with brain / vision therapy and special eyeglasses, she has helped many of my clients and patients in the past 15 years as well. She had written portions of books I had used in OT school in the 1990s, it turned out -- so it was a very good thing to have found my way to her when I was in Denver as a new OT in 1997. And now she has something available for EVERYONE's benefit, no matter where you live!
This is a wonderful book which I believe should be part of every school and public library, made available to every teacher in the country, and wish every parent would obtain and read as well. It is an Award-Winning Finalist in the following categories of the “Best Books 2010” Awards, sponsored by USA Book News
- Education PreK-12
- Parenting/Family: General
But I don't think it should just be for children -- this is actually an amazing book for adults who are wanting to have better performance mentally and physically. I was thrilled to see on her website (which is an awesome website to explore), they had read my mind when I was thinking 'this would be such a great book for parents to give teachers as gifts, or people to give family members' -- they have a workbook now as well, and bundle things together in different ways which are really very good bargains when you think of what the recipient will accomplish from the information in the books on increasing their life's performance!
See it. Say it. Do It! integrates three key concepts to create better learning. Visualizing, declaring, performing ... hence See it. Say it. Do It! Dr. Hellerstein is five years older than I am, we're both in that age of becoming 'crones' (a favorable term!), and while I have fifteen years' experience as an occupational therapist, she has made optometry and developmental optometry her primary vocation and profession her entire adult life I believe, so she has risen to such an amazing level of experience that it is just a GIFT that she has written this book!
In the forward, she candidly refers to a health crisis she had in 2002 which resulted in difficulty in thinking, working and being productive. She has attained an incredible status in her professional realm, both being known as an authority and having a large and very successful partnership/practice, and says that the health issues she faced were allowing her to re-evaluate who she was, what she was doing, and what she wanted to do differently. Healing took place through utilizing a mixture of 'traditional and non-traditional' medicine (i.e., 'integrative medicine, as Lumigrate embraces). Utilizing visualization and the concepts she writes about in See it. Say it. Do It! were instrumental in her recovered health. And then she wanted to write a book to bring the information to others.
She writes: 'I now am making choices on my life's journey from a totally different perspective, from a more balanced approach, balancing my passion with peace, through visualization and intuition. I have been given another chance in life and want to make the most of it.'
In the more recent years of my working with patients, I was not so appreciated by providers and managers who were not progressive thinkers or using progressive concepts which have been available to us for decades. If we learn something along the way in a workshop, since our 'team' doesn't understand it or 'buy in', there ends up to be a conflict sometimes. So progress is very slow to move forward. However, if you get enough people from one team educated on something, it kind of seeps around enough that those who didn't initially learn the concepts do. My hope is that will occur with See it. Say it. Do It! .
When you market anything, you need to find your 'core market', and Lynn decided to make it teachers and parents with this book, but it truly is a wonderful book for adults of any age who are wanting to get more action from their brain/body/spirit. As an example, Lumigrate's core market is about fibromyalgia, but most all the information on here applies to everyone else who is interested in progressive concepts because many, MANY more people have some of the symptoms starting and don't realize where it might be heading. "I'm so tired", ""I'm forgetful", "I'm getting sore shoulders and my neck is tight all the time" -- it's helpful for them to be reading about the things that people who are really motivated to get better will be reading.
And one of those things for EVERYONE following Lumigrate, is See it. Say it. Do It! . "Visualize this book being in your hands today. Act on that visualization. You'll be glad you did!"
The information from the handout cards goes on to give the following information for purchasing: Available at bookstores, Amazon.com (which Lynn's said is the best price) or www.lynnhellerstein.com. They offer gift wrapping through her office and I highly suggest this book as a holiday, end of year or special occasion book for teachers and parents -- really anyone, it's so applicable to anyone with a brain wanting to have better performance and it's FUN!
