Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life and publisher at Hay House, endorsed Ending the Battle Within :

“We all know how hard it is to change our negative patterns, mainly because we do not know what it is inside of us that really needs changing. Verlaine Crawford has come up with a simple, but most effective way of learning who rely dwells within us. There are far more sub-personalities than we are aware of. Her Infusion Integration Technique helps us make peace with them once and for all. Verlaine is living proof that her process can turn lives around as she continues to expand the boundaries of her own life.

“Students in America and around the world are benefiting from her workshops. This book is a must read for all who are serious about changing their lives for the better. This will also be the most fun growth experience you have ever had.

I wish Verlaine had written this book years ago when I was beginning my own journey.”

Louise Hay, author of You can Heal Your Life
