This uniquely designed book from author, Carol Hansen Grey, will become a treasured resource and guide, inspiring you to take the needed steps along your journey to rediscovering your personal power and to achieving inner peace.
Divided into three parts, the book was designed to enable you to jump around and explore whatever story or tool calls to you at a particular point along your path.
Part 1 contains 30 inspiring stories of Carol's personal journey toward achieving personal empowerment and reaching a place of inner peace. At the end of each story Carol lists the healing tools she used in the story along with the page number to enable you to jump right to the tool if you desire. You can read the stories and/or the tools in any order.
Part 2 contains 26 healing tools that Carol used to achieve her goals. Each tool includes a detailed description of how to use the tool along with examples. Everything you need to employ these healing tools is contained within this book -- nothing else to buy. All you need is a willingness to take the step along your path.
Part 3 contains a list of resources. Because resources are always changing, Carol decided to make the Simple Healing Tools book and website a joint project. Therefore, this website is actually Part 3 of the book. The resources section of this website is continually updated with new and helpful resources.
Carol's goal is to help you make your journey as pleasurable and rewarding as possible! Please contact her with any questions about the material in the book and also to offer your own simple healing tools for her to share with visitors to the site!

SIMPLE HEALING TOOLS TESTIMONIALS
Healing Tools from a Wise-Woman Crone!
In Simple Healing Tools, Carol Hansen Grey begins with stories from her own life that are short and to the point. She describes her circumstances and how she paid attention to information that came from intuition, body-messages, and teachers, and then tried something that changed her life for the better. She shares what has worked for her.
In the thirty stories and twenty-six tools she shares with us, it is very likely that there will be something for the reader who is drawn to open this book. If so, the synchronistic message from Eastern philosophy, “When the pupil is ready, the teacher will come,” will turn out to be true. Carol is down-to-earth practical and a spiritual seeker, she tells what has worked for her and shares what she has learned with us. These are words from a wise-woman, crone!

This is Practical Spirituality!
I'm grateful that Carol has compiled the inspiring stories and the essential, practical spiritual growth tools that she has been sharing for years into one inviting and easy-to-use reference guide. In this one sweet volume Carol helps connect the dots in a "how to" guide fashion for all spiritual beings living a human existence. I now steer clients towards this fabulous resource because there is a gift and a growth opportunity for anyone who opens the book.

Carol's Stories and the Simple Tools That Changed Her life, Will Change Yours, Too!
Carol Hansen Grey has succeeded in creating an amazingly simple yet extremely powerful compilation of stories and corresponding tools that will transform your life from the moment you read the first "story" and flip back to read and engage in the use of the first "tool." For me it was the "Free Yourself from Fear" stories (Story 20) and the clear and easy-to-follow steps to take (Tool 9, p. 181) that changed my life at a time when I was consumed with fear about a personal health issue. The "Finding a Gift in Each Experience" story and the corresponding tool, which is a prayer asking to see the bigger picture and understand the gift that is being given, was a gentle reminder to me to stay focused on the gift of each experience as I begin new adventures at this time in my life.
This book is a wonderful support to all those on a path of renewal of body, mind, and spirit and readers will appreciate the simplicity, honesty, and clarity with which Carol shares her personal journey. I guarantee that you will find at least one tool (and probably many more!) to use immediately and that you will want to share your experience and the book, Simple Healing Tools, with your closest friends. Hopefully you will also share your story with Carol on her website. Then, we'll all join Carol on the Oprah show one day in the near future and share our transformational stories made possible through the use of some very simple healing tools. Thank you Carol!

WOW! Carol Hansen Grey has done it again!
First she graced the world with her Lighten Up CD and workbook that not only taught us the importance of loving ourselves but gave us specific instructions on how to reach that state of unconditional self-love. Then she gave us her Free Yourself from Fear process that helped us transform all our negative thoughts and bring ourselves into a state of inner peace. Now she has given us the créme de la créme with her Simple Healing Tools! This book not only includes the above processes, it contains a wealth of wisdom from her years of teaching what she herself needed to learn! What a gift to the planet!!

These Simple Healing Tools are a gift of love...
This inspirational book is practical, thoughtful and I refer to it often as it reinforces my belief that I am on the right path... I like the fact that I can seek out the story that corresponds with what I'm feeling at the moment, feel uplifted by it and then go deeper by further reading the tool which gives me instant action to take... prior to reading this book, Carol and her husband Victor's "Free Yourself from Fear" CD transformed the way I relate to what might be perceived as obstacles in my life and restored my sense of faith... this book is a great tool in itself for me to refer to in my day to day life as I delight in this amazing time where I find myself recreating myself and enjoying the process thanks to Carol Hansen Grey! What a gift, I highly recommend it.

Simple, but Powerful!
This book just saved my marriage of 34 years. I was ready to throw it all in when Carol's book arrived in the mail. Thumbing through the book, I was drawn to story #9, Letting Go of Judgments. Then I skipped backwards to #8, Paying attention to the signals. Back and forth through the book I went, finding comfort in Carols stories and suggestions in the tools.
Before the book, my plan was to create a big scene to show my husband that I knew what was going on and how he was hurting me. Following some of the tools, I sat down and mediated on what I truly wanted. I discovered that what I wanted was a warm close relationship with husband built on trust. If I couldn't have that, I didn't want a relationship. Instead of big drama, I used the Healing Tools to create on of the best days of our marriage. We had a long and loving conversation. We are working on repairing our relationship by improving our communication and shared goals.
All this came about because Carol Hansen Grey has great wisdom and insights. She shares them with us in a very easy and accessible way. Thank you Carol!

Full of Wisdom
This book is so full of wisdom and self-help tools that I highly recommend it to all who want to have a happy and healthy life. It is filled with wonderful stories from the author's experience and easy exercises for healing and empowerment. One of my favorite stories in the book is "Working Your Joy". It gives a definition of sin being that of seeing your next step and not taking it. Simple Healing Tools helps us all to take the next step and steps in living a healthy, prosperous and full life. Go buy it for yourself and others. Namaste!!!

A Lifetime of Wisdom in This Book
Carol Hansen Grey has put together a lifetime of healing tools, that are simple to use and easy to continue using, with powerful results. So often, we commit to a new practice, only to give it up in a few days. This is not the case with Simple Healing Tools. The exercises are easy to remember and to put into action.
After reading the book, I went back to look at a couple of the passages that I underscored. One that stands out is, "We have been taught: it is selfish to love ourselves; we are bad if we love ourselves; we are not lovable unless we look a certain way or behave in a 'normal' manner. Therefore, we have been conditioned since childhood to look at ourselves with negativity and even hate. I believe that there is a direct correlation between the amount of violence in the world and the huge number of people who do not love themselves!" Carol is onto something here.

A Treasure Trove of Wisdom
Thank you, Carol, for gathering and sharing these simple, yet deeply transformative wisdom/healing tools. As I read thru the book, I had the feeling of sitting with a wise Auntie, one whose stories were food for the soul, whose wisdom was born of intentional experience and freely shared with Love.
Accompanying each story is a treasure trove of exercises -- from manifestation to meditation, presence to prayer, freeing ourselves from fear to engaging our angels in support of our dreams.
Carol is authentically audacious and holistically in-tune with what it takes to thrive in our unique journey of Life, and reflects this with speed, ease and agility. A true mark of one who embodies what they teach!
Pick up a copy AND one to share ... you will be grateful for the insight, tools and comfort found in the wisdom gracing these pages. Enjoy!
~Stacey from Vancouver, WA

~Lynn from Pleasanton, CA
In this inspiring, easy-to-read book of simple healing tools, Carol Hansen shares workshop participant's, as well as her own, experiences with these tools in brief yet powerful stories that illustrate life improvement in relationships, health, finance, career and self worth. If a person were to implement only one of these tools, their life would change for the better in some meaningful way.
