  1. I’m doing put off put on and I just finished and am starting the video and I’ve watch that I went to get ditgital work book and i can’t get it to read. my computer keeps saying unable to read disc.I’m so anxious to keep going and beside myself what to do? I have tried on another computer with no luck again.Is it possible you could mail a digital work book to me? I will pay for it? I just do not know what I’m doing wrong and I’m so busy and wanting to get into this.Thank You so much for your time.

  2. I purchased a while ago but only recently listened through the audio program (#1-8)of Wisdom For Healing. It is life changing and I thank Dr. Richards so much for speaking these truths!
    He spoke of some of the supporting materials – like the “9 Virtues” meditations, the “I Believe In God” meditation, and then the
    4 or 5 Heart physics meditations, workshop program to learn how to Put Off, Put On. I have purchased the Heart Physics program, so are these meditations in there? I can’t seem to find them in all the programs that I have purchased or on your website. Can you help me find these supporting materials?
    I am battling some serious health issues and believe the answer is in the truth of putting on, putting off. I need help now in the walking out of all this info… : )
    Can you also recommend any of Dr. Richards books on health/Oriental Medicine/naturopathic medicine/Quantum physics ? I am hungry to learn more truth as it applies the Word of God to our life.
    Thanks so much.

  3. Jim, as we meditate, is it beneficial to have relaxing music playing softly in the background? I know that when I hear good music, it causes me to think more positive pleasant thoughts very easily.

  4. I am trying to find where I can order The Prayer Organizer book and CD teaching series.
    I love Dr. Richards teachings and have most of his books.

    • Hi Paul,
      The heart is like an automobile ignition. The engine may be big and welltuned,
      the tank may be filled with high octane fuel, the tires are top of the
      line, and the paint job is impeccable; but without an ignition to light its fire,
      all you’ve got is a well-built paperweight. The car looks good, but doesn’t really
      do anything. In our Christian life we’ve got truth, we’ve got doctrine, we have
      volumes of knowledge but let’s face the dismal reality … too often, it’s not
      working as it should. Even when we manage to get aspects of the Word of God
      to work, it’s kind of hit and miss. We’re not really sure why it does or doesn’t
      work! We are lacking the consistency that should be present in a God that is
      never contradictory or chaotic.
      In today’s religious quagmire, spirituality gives way to intellectualism!
      Control has replaced power! Mysticism is the new miraculous. Positive thinking
      is the fad substitute for faith in the heart! We are told to close our eyes, confess
      the truth a million times, be full of remorse for of all our sins and if God is in
      a good mood the last anointed prayer prayed over us might kick in! This 21st
      century gospel doesn’t even resemble the message of Jesus or the early church.
      What we call spiritual is so bizarre we’re embarrassed for our friends to see what
      we do in church. Unlike Jesus who performed miracles out in the open among
      the lost, we hide behind church walls because what we do only works with
      those initiated into the club, who speak the language and have bought into the
      culture! What’s worse is the absence of a personal moral lifestyle that should be
      the organic expression of our belief in Jesus Christ. We know we have the truth;
      it just doesn’t show in our lives!

  6. I’m so excited to share that God walked me into health freedom by the death and resurrection of Christ though your (Dr. Jim Richards) interviews on the Sid Roth radio show! The food sensitivities I’d battled for years disappeared within a week of throwing off my burdens, and heavy metals started leaving! Relentless fatigue was gone after I simply put off my own strength and put on the Lord’s. The list goes on, and I’m so thankful. I’d been working with an ND, and had lots of documentation of these and other problems, and got to share the total Gospel with her. It was great. God is so good!

    Now, a question (please???): Do you have any experience with people walking out of pregnancy morning sickness? I feel, perhaps, my symptoms are related to a lackadaisical attitude or temper I tend to allow. Because of early onset and previous pregnancy experience with severe, debilitating nausea, I’m really vascillating between reliance on God alone and seeking help from within the natural world. Not that getting medical help is necessarily wrong–but it sure does make more sense to go to God alone, first!

    Now I get to surrender my self-conscious embarrassment for asking such a personal question on a web form… desperate times call for desperate measures! Sorry. Thanks for any guidance you can offer.


    • Hi Whitney,
      I am Pat Jim’s sister and I usually take care of most of these kinds of questions. I actually talk to people about our Heart Physics programs. I can’t say that I have talked with any one about being healed of morning sickness but I believe that God can do anything! I have talked with people that have walked away from life long illnesses and problems so I have no problem believing that this would not be to hard of a thing to ask. But I also don’t see any problem from seeking relief from many natural methods either. God designed out bodies to function in certain ways and many times due to our own diet or stress in the body our bodies get off balance. I don’t think it takes anything away from God to be healed one way over another.

      Please contact me at email address below and we can discuss this more at your convenience.

  7. Dr. Richards, I attended your “Limitless Marriage” teaching at Gateway Church, in NRH, TX with my husband last night. Just wanted to THANK you for being yourself and sharing your testimony. I have a couple of seemingly disconnected questions. In your work on healing from whom you perceived yourself to be to who you are in Christ, did you have to do any “inner child” work? Also, have you come across or had personal experience with art therapy (effective or non-effective or neutral)? BTW – my husband and I fought all the way to your speaking engagement. Of course, it was all his fault. :) Your teaching greatly encouraged us in our marriage (12 years – though we are in our 40s and 50s). We thoroughly appreciated your style, your wit and how genuine and transparent you are. We took away encouragement and tools to reconnect. Thanks.

  8. I’m on CD #6 of 8 CDs in Dr. Jim’s Heart Health series. He references several times the “Prayer of Transformation” and to visit his website to download the prayer. I wasn’t able to locate it using the search method.

    Please advise how I might find a copy of this prayer to download. Thank you.
