Excerpt mula sa PANIMULA:
Sa artikulong “Chronic Stress” ng American Psychological Association (APA), ang matagal at hindi nawawalang mental na stress ay nagdudulot ng mga pagkasira sa iyong katawan na dahilan upang mahirapan itong gumaling mula sa iba’t ibang mga karamdamang dala ng negatibong pag-iisip. Ayon sa National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) sa kanilang artikulong “Consequences of Lack of Treatment,” ang mental na stress ay sanhi ng tinatayang $193.2 bilyong pagkalugi ng US kada taon. Kapag ang mental na stress ay hindi nalunasan, hindi lamang ang posibilidad ng malalang medikal na kodisyon ang tumataas, ngunit pati na rin ang pagpapakamatay, lalo na sa mga kabataan. Isinaad ng NAMI na ang pagpapakamatay ang ika-sampung dahilan ng kamatayan sa Estados Unidos, ang ikatlong nangungunang dahilan ng kamatayan sa mga edad sampu hanggang labing-apat, at ang ikalawang nangungunang dahilan ng kamatayan sa mga edad labinlima hanggang dalawampu’t apat. Tinataya nilang labing-walo hanggang dalawampu’t dalawang beterano ang nagpapakamatay kada araw. Bilang karagdagan, iniuugnay ng journal na Lancet Psychiatry ang 41,148 na pagpapakamatay noong 2007 at 46,131 na pagkamatay noong 2009 sa stress ng kawalang-trabaho sa buong mundo. Kaya, maaga nating idinadala sa hukay ang ating mga sarili. Higit pa rito, 50 porsyento ng lahat ng mga kasal sa Estados Unidos ay nauuwi sa diborsyo, na dumaragdag sa stress ng parehong mga magulang at mga anak.
Ang problemang ito ng mental na stress ay hindi na bago. Ito ay bahagi ng tinatawag ng Bibliya bilang “henerasyonal na sumpa ng tao.” Ayon sa Bibliya, mayroon na nito noon pang panahon nina Adan at Eva, bunga ng kanilang orihinal na pagkakasala nang magdesisyon silang humiwalay sa Diyos sa pag-iisip at inakalang hindi na nila kailangan ang Diyos sa kanilang buhay. Kaya nagsimulang ituon ng tao ang pag-iisip sa kanilang sarili, at ang mga bagay lamang sa mundo na kanilang nakikita at nahahawakan ang natatangi nilang reyalidad. Sa Genesis 2, binalaan sila ng Diyos na huwag kumain (huwag magpokus) mula sa puno ng Kaalaman (Isip) ng kabutihan at kasamaan (materyal na mundo ng mga bagay na palagi nating hinuhusgahan bilang mabuti o masama) sa Hardin ng Eden (mundo ng mga bagay), o ikaw ay tiyak na mamamatay (sa mga sakit o pagpapakamatay).

Mental health is definitely an integral part of everyone’s life, whether they suffer from an actual mental illness or not. Your mental health should always be just as important as your physical health, which unfortunately not everyone realizes. But once you come to this realization and focus on what it is that will help you through the good, the bad, and the ugly times of life, well that is when you will truly flourish. In this book, Happiness In Quantum Leaps: De-stressing Without Drugs! by Aura D. McClain, we discover and learn about the way of mentally healing one’s self through reflection, practicing control over your emotions, and how to heal through religion and God.
The author of this book manages to hone in on what makes people react to stressful situations and mentally draining circumstances in the way that they do, and how they can in turn find a new way of dealing with it through spiritual healing. Aura D. McClain even reflects on her own time in her life where she felt at the end of her rope and needed to mentally reinvigorate herself and heal from the inside out. As someone who believes mental health is one of the most important aspects of any person’s life, this book really hit home with me. It was intriguing to read from this author’s perspective and hear what it is they believe can help others who are struggling. I found this read to be thought-provoking and intriguing, making me see how this approach to mental health struggles, whether they be minor or not, can potentially begin a healing process with this way of thinking, especially if you are religious.
One of the best parts of this book is how the author touches on many different struggles in life; such as relationship issues and failure vs. success and ultimately, how to achieve proper happiness. Whether you identify as someone with religious values or not, this book will definitely be something that will resonate with you and make you look inward so you can be your best self and most importantly — happy. It is wonderfully executed in its message and is a book I would recommend for all audiences. After all, mental health is important for every individual.
The US Review of Books
book review by Barbara Bamberger Scott
“Taking responsibility for your own mental and spiritual growth is the first step to creating a successful life of unconditional love, peace, joy and happiness.”
Author McClain creates a methodology for positive life improvement centered on an understanding of God as the energy source. McClain recalls her own story of discouragement and pessimism at a certain point in her life. Through the diligent study of positive thinking, her outlook expanded, and constructive change was the result. She urges readers to examine the totality of their lives, and address all concerns, basing their exploration on the understanding that our perceived reality is, in fact, composed of pure energy. We are connected with everything, including God. Our task is to align the mind, body, and spirit. We can discipline our minds and bodies by keeping our subconscious and conscious desires synchronized through exercises such as writing down our goals and adhering to a timeframe to achieve them. Overarching all is our spiritual interconnectedness, facilitating our ability to love ourselves and others unconditionally.
McClain worked as an aerospace engineer for twenty-five years and is now an ordained Christian minister and youth counselor. Along with biblical quotations, she includes much factual material drawn from current and traditional psychology and carefully makes a distinction between religious teaching and spiritual understanding. She shares her broad knowledge of science—its history, importance, and limitations—asserting that scientists haven’t yet recognized that thoughts are a form of energy like other components of our perceived reality, but suggesting this understanding will arise through further study of quantum physics. A few well-chosen illustrations underpin the narrative, along with articles exploring the danger of antidepressants, which McClain believes would not be necessary for those who follow her recommended practices and philosophy. She offers an initial three-question exercise to help readers fully utilize the wisdom she imparts. She hopes that her work will be read and shared among readers seeking in-depth, long-lasting solutions to life’s many challenges.

3 out of 4 stars Share This Review
Happiness in Quantum Leaps: De-Stressing Without Drugs! by Aura McClain is a self-help guide that focuses on attaining joy and peace. A lot of people are suffering from different illnesses, including cancer and high blood pressure. Divorce rates are going up. Studies have even shown that antidepressant use in the US has increased by 65% in 15 years. Over three parts focusing on the role the mind, body, and spirit play in helping us overcome these challenges, Aura maintains that we can enjoy living a healthy and happy life without drugs.
There are a lot of concepts in this book that piqued my interest. Employing a simple and clear language, the author explores the similarities between religion and science. The book mostly explores Christianity, but the lessons can be applied by anyone regardless of their faith. The law of conservation of energy is discussed in relation to the spiritual to prove the existence of God and how we are one with Him. The concept of our thoughts as a type of energy is also a recurrent theme throughout the book, and this was what I found most interesting. The author explicitly shows us how we can harness the power of our thoughts through positive thinking, forgiveness, and love.
Furthermore, the author employs personal stories while passing her message across. She has been through quite a lot as a victim of physical abuse from her father. She also had a brain tumor and went through tough times in marriage. These challenges, and other everyday life struggles she discussed, made it easier for me to relate to her lessons and see how they can be applied in practical terms. In this book, Aura bares it all.
There are a couple of things discussed that I have heard about and even put into practice, like meditation, affirmations, and keeping a journal of your goals. It was reassuring to see that I have been on the right track with those practices. The book is also repetitive in a lot of its messages. I consider this as a positive feature, as it serves to remind readers of things they may have forgotten while reading through the text.
While this was an excellent read for me, there were a few concerns. The first issue I had with the book was its editing. I found a lot of grammatical errors while reading, but the author’s message kept me going. The author also occasionally comes across as overly suggestive, especially when discussing the government’s role in encouraging people to purchase and depend on harmful drugs, and I would have preferred a more objective view from the author in those instances.
Overall, Happiness in Quantum Leaps is a great book. It is well referenced and includes self-assessment information. There is a lot to learn from it, and if readers put the right amount of effort into applying the author’s lessons, I do not doubt that they will experience improvements in life. The grammatical errors found in the book mean that I will have to settle for rating the book 3 out of 4. I would recommend this book to people that are willing to put in the work to live healthy and happy lives. Fans of books about self-discovery will also enjoy this book.

This was an impactful read. I found the discussion on thought as a type of energy very interesting and am surprised that it is not recognized in science as well. The connections between different religions and even science make one wonder why people can’t just see the similarities in their beliefs and understand each other. Bible verses, like Philippians 4:8, are included to reinforce positive thinking and the power of our words and thoughts. Recognizing God’s unconditional love for us, believing Him at 100%, and how it helps in forgiving and loving others was another part of the book I could relate to. The company you keep and your role models and how they can affect you, affirmations and change at the subconscious level, and the importance of keeping journals are also informative areas. The author uses her personal experiences to help drive home the points and make the lessons more relatable.
