Review by Nicole Hemmenway, Vice President U.S. Pain Foundation (review on Amazon)
From the perspective of a patient advocate, a person with pain and vice president of U.S. Pain Foundation, I definitely will be sharing this book with others! It is more than just a book; it is about understanding the impact words have on our lives and changing our destiny. It is about living life with new purpose, meaning, happiness, abundance, light, love and grace.

Since there was no way for me to absorb all the insight, wisdom and transcendence from one read, I plan to go through each letter, the words associated with that letter and the tools provided for transformation again and again.

Highly recommend! “Golden Words” is a testament that it is possible to find peace, contentment, opportunity, hope, joy and love through positive self-talk and daily self-love.

About The Book

The Prophetic Dream

In 2007, I had a prophetic dream. In this dream, I saw blood, then I was lying in a bed with horrific pain and sound sensitivities. I felt like my nervous system had been through a shredder. On the nightstand next to me was a small box with a volume control switch. I turned it down to zero and lay in a cocoon of healing silence. In the last scene of the dream, I was running on a treadmill ecstatic and grateful that my body worked. An athlete at the time, the dream puzzled me. I took my health and well-being for granted.

Four days later, I had a bicycle accident and life-changing near-death experience. I traveled to several planes of existence where I met with ancestors, angels, and guides who carried messages of healing. The contentment, love, and peace I experienced on the other side stood in sharp contrast to my life. I had a satisfying career and made a good living, I had a daily meditation practice with amazing visionary experiences, but I lived in survival mode and had not fully digested my disappointments nor owned all of my dreams. I wanted to stay in this heaven on the other side, but I was told I had to return for love.

Concerned that I didn’t have the tools to heal my life, I was directed toward a flock of angelic orbs, which felt like a symphony of healing vibrations. These vibrations carried feelings of peace, well-being, joy, support, delight, light-heartedness, and even a bit of playful mischief. I eagerly returned to my body knowing I could call on these helping guides to navigate my life.

Back in my body, my dream came true. I developed a nervous system disorder (diagnosed as RSD) and post-concussion disorder with an array of sensory sensitivities. Conventional doctors gave up on me, and one doctor even told me I’d end up in a wheelchair on a morphine pump managing chronic pain. I understand this is the lens these doctors used to view healing. But who has the right to take away someone’s hope? Fortunately, both my dream and the messages of healing I received on the other side gave me complete faith that I was meant to heal.

Golden Words — A Vocabulary For Positive Change

The vibration of guides and angels carried an unforgettable, concentrated positive energy. To aid in my recovery, I translated the angelic vibration into a positive, comforting, healing vocabulary to support myself in ways that most of the doctors and practitioners I met could not. I meditated on and talked to myself using these words.

Knowing I was meant to heal, I fenced out the people and practitioners who didn’t believe I could heal and followed my inner guidance to people and modalities that did. I worked with three doctors around the US, and learned hypnosis so I could use body, mind, spirit principles for self-healing. Today I am pain free. When I opened my private hypnosis and health-coaching practice, I began to use golden words—the vocabulary of positive transformation—with my clients with great results.

Along the way, I met a woman at the grocery store whose brother was diagnosed with RSD. He had committed suicide because of the excruciating pain and inability to see a better future for himself. I decided that day that I would write a book sharing my story to help others find the hope and tools to heal themselves and their lives.

You, too, can develop a vocabulary of positive self-talk using golden words—even if others don’t believe in you. Don’t ever let anyone take away your hope. Especially not yourself.

There are over 2000 golden words in the book that were specifically chosen to guide us to our goals, whatever they may be: deeper states of spiritual consciousness, more relaxed, stress-free states of mind and body; more balanced, no-drama emotional states; a new job; a new home; a college education; or anything else that brings you joy, contentment, peace, and well-being. In short, golden words and the tools for using them are designed to make you feel better and heal your life on any level.

There are also methods in the book to help you identify the types of words that work best for you depending on your learning style, favored modes of perception, your spiritual guidance, and metaphorical ways of experiencing the world.

Does Golden Words teach that I have to be positive all the time?

Golden Words is not about wearing rose colored glasses to soften an uncertain future.”

It’s healthy to feel all your emotions: anger, sadness, fear, and happiness. In the right circumstances, a healthy emotional release can help us move from an uncomfortable feeling to a happier, more positive, joyful state. Golden Words teaches how to use golden words and phrases, as well as self-hypnosis and other mind, body, spirit tools, to bridge from unhappiness, pain, stress, and challenge to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.

How do you, the author, use Golden Words?

Golden Words is full of stories about my own healing process, what I learned from hypnosis to aid in healing, and my private hypnosis-health coaching practice. I’ve used golden words, hypnosis, and many of the tools in my book to relax, reduce/anesthetize discomfort (I achieved a pain free state), stay balanced in stressful situations, accept and integrate traumatic experiences, and rebuild my life after my near-death experience. Please read my book or subscribe for a free book excerpt to read stories about golden words in action.

I meditate on golden words and choose golden words daily to guide my projects, support my health and well-being, and offer positive vibrations to other people. I often open up my book to find a guiding golden word and have been told by readers that they do that, too.

Benefits from Golden Words...

Some of the positive results my clients have experienced include increased self-confidence and creativity, moving into flow and goal achievement, pain control, stress reduction, elimination of cravings, better sleep, trauma release,  increased optimism and well-being, the falling away of bad habits, a more relaxed perception of time, and connections to their spiritual guides.


One of my clients moved into flow and wrote and published her first book.

A client with RSD learned to reduce/eliminate pain and begin jogging again.

A client who suffered from a dark cloud of the big “D” felt that cloud lift and knew she would be okay.

Several clients lost their cravings for sugar and processed foods, which resulted in weight loss and increased energy, health, and well-being.
