Reiki Reflections by Rev. Cheryl Ann M. Case

Reiki and hindsight are 20/20. I would have said, “No, I am not doing that,” had I known all the experiences I had to go through to be the Reiki Master I am now. Of course, looking back, it all makes sense. This is my journey. There are plenty of books on how to do Reiki, but this was written for all Reiki Practitioners and Masters. I wish I had something like this when I first started learning Reiki in the late 1990’s. There were times I thought I was imagining things and yelled out for help. There were other times I knew things from my heart and was brought to tears. With each lesson learned, I grew more compassionate as a healer. There were days where I thought I should just quit, and others where my client had the AH-HA moment making me continue for just one more day. My experiences may not be what you experience. I want you to understand the many possibilities that can happen. Sometimes reading another’s experiences makes it so much easier to keep going. That is my wish for you, keep going! Yes, the journey is hard. You question why you signed up to do this work. The answer is because even if during just one Reiki session, you share your hope with healing, change their faith in themselves, or help them realize the connection to their God, that light may be what your client needs on to their soul path! THAT is the Divine working through you. And THAT is enough. Blessings to you on your reiki journey! Receive $20 off a Reiki session with Cheryl when you purchase the book.

palzereThe Power to Heal: Spiritual Lessons from the Master by Jane Palzere

The Power to Heal is written in the form of letters from Jesus explaining that healing can come from within, how to have an attitude of well-being, and how the responsibility for good health is within us; that illness is not a punishment from God but a lesson in how to live and survive and be whole in spirit.

Feeling an unrest and dissatisfaction with the way her life was going, Jane Palzere increased her efforts to find a new direction. The search for meaning led her from church to church and from lecture to lecture. She was involved with meditation, prayer and classes in spiritual exercises. At one point. she decided to try fasting as a means of strengthening her discipline and followed some of the patterns presented in the Bible. This is when the letters began to arrive. Jane was surprised by their appearance and even more so when she was told that these letters were to be published in book form. The letters themselves caused a great deal of soul searching and self analysis. At first, they were met with skepticism, fear, questions, disbelief. As mentors appeared who encouraged the sharing of the letters, it was possible to accept what was happening. By a series of events and circumstances which propelled the book forward, the book went into several printings and was used in classes and seminars.

The book was published by Changing Lives Press and is available through amazon.com and changinglivespress.com.

 

CappabiancaMemoirs of a Hospital Chaplain: I Stand Near the Door by Chaplain Geralyn Cappabianca, MA, LPC, BCC

Hospitals can be fearful places where people come for transitions, from sickness to health, from dying to eternal life. We walk through many of life’s transitional doors in a hospital. The hospital chaplain can help people with these challenges, providing a calming, peaceful presence, someone who will walk with them through their doors. Through the use of the metaphor of the door and many true inspirational patient stories, as well as the chaplain’s own journey through her many doors, this book will invite the reader to laugh, to cry, and to consider the many doors of transition in their own life. Topics discussed include end-of-life planning, coping with grief and loss, compassion fatigue and burn-out, near-death experiences, and finding peace and joy amidst life’s transitions. The book itself models the role of the chaplain in the hospital setting, inviting all chaplains to reflect on their own role in their ministry setting. It is an inspirational spiritual journey, sometimes mystical, sometimes heart-wrenching, but always engaging and inviting further thought and reflection by the reader. These are stories that almost everyone can relate to, as they are stories about life’s greatest events, such as weddings, birth, death, and coming to new life after a loss. The final chapter offers spiritual tools for coping with the many transitions, the many doors that life invites us to walk through. The final word: life is eternal, we are eternal, we are one, all is well.

Ogi Bogi, The Elephant Yogi: Stories about yoga for children
By Elizabeth Gibbs, M.A., Certified Yoga Therapist
Ogi Bogi, The Elephant Yogi is a series of stories about yoga for children targeted primarily to ages 8 through 10. The stories feature Ogi Bogi, and a cast of multicultural children. Tara (African-American) wants to be able to wake up and get to school on time, Juan (Puerto Rican) wants to do better in math and Bob (Caucasian) needs to learn how to get along better with others. Sunee, (from Thailand) who uses a wheelchair, is sad because she cannot walk or run anymore; Shauna’s family (Native American -Tlingit) has moved from Alaska to the US mainland and she is having trouble fitting into her new school. Kai (Multi-racial) is an over achiever and stressed. Raheem (Muslim-American) wants help with his asthma so that he can play soccer. The illustrations in the book feature each of the children demonstrating yoga poses and techniques to address their concerns.

The storybook provides clear examples, in child friendly language that help children make direct connections between real life situations, a specific exercise and its effect. Through this process, children can learn to manage their emotions, behavior and reduce stress. The book is constructed to encourage children to work individually or in small groups. Many of the story ideas and characters have come from the children themselves.

Whyte

My Gift by Elana Whyte
My Gift is about a young boy named Michael who sees and hears spirit. He communicates with his grandfather who passed away a long time ago as well as with others. Through Michael’s experiences, children can learn they are not alone, that they have a choice of how to use their gift, and how not to be afraid. Each page is a springboard for adults to talk about this sometimes sensitive subject. Although My Gift was written for ages 3-7, slightly older children can benefit from the discussions that will result from the words and pictures, which help explain challenging topics, such as death and the soul, in simple, but realistic ways. The author, Elana Whyte, is the proud mother of two intuitive children. She has also been a school psychologist for more than twenty years. Guidance from spirit and life experiences have led her to help sensitive children. My Gift was a gift from spirit, which she passionately wants to share with as many children and adults as possible. It is her hope that they understand their gifts early on to help promote happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives.

Howard Koverman, the illustrator and Elana’s father, brought the words to life. Some illustrations can be seen on Elana’s author fan page on Facebook, www.facebook.com/ElanaWhyteAuthor  The book is available through BalboaAmazonBarnes and Noble and Curious Goods New Age Shop in West Haven, CT.

 

6x9At the Garden’s Gate by Judith Dreyer
At the Garden’s Gate is the story of one woman’s personal journey in creating a meadow, when going “green” wasn’t an everyday word. As the author follows her passion to learn about medicinal and edible plants, a meadow evolves that supports growth—both natural and personal.  During this process, she reconnects with her Native American heritage, learning the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel and its teachings. This is a story of partnership with the land, a story of personal discovery and love of nature.

Stories – our personal narratives – have meanings on many levels. Using story in the ancient ways of her Native American elders, the author offers insight, wisdom and means – an impetus – to create connections with nature in our daily lives.

Judith uses the garden as a metaphor, a centering place. Gardens beckon us through gates of new understanding, growth and offers us a doorway into our deeper self. The garden’s path offers a way to remember and to be with self, in stillness, meandering onto unknown pathways that can twist and turn but are filled with such beauty. As a Master Gardener, writer, speaker, Holistic Health Consultant, Judith offers insight and inspiration to transform our old story of misuse of land resources into one of a supportive, nurturing collaboration with nature.

BennettA Voice as Old as Time by David Bennett
In his second book, Energy Healer and Transformational Coach David Bennett uses contemplations to develop a center of focus in meditation and during daily life. The contemplations in this book provide subject for serious thought and consideration into the reader’s divine nature. Unlike other meditation techniques that look to empty the mind, contemplations intently focus on an idea about something while in a state of stillness or when being mindful. Deep and lasting wisdom comes from experience so A Voice as Old as Time offers contemplations allow the reader to calmly plant the seeds of transformation, working to expand his or her consciousness.

The contemplations are arranged into forty-four brief chapters in a natural progression toward spiritual maturity and awakening—from finding and knowing yourself, to living in love and eventually finding purpose. Throughout there are woven-in common themes like connecting to your divine essence, using loving intentions, and gratitude while on the journey we call life. David writes from a common premise of everything is alive with spiritual energy of love, the eternal flame that is found everywhere and in everything. Anyone can access the wisdom of their true nature so they can face life’s many decisions with empowerment, clear vision, right action, and a sense of purpose. A Voice as Old as Time is a tool of focused meditations and mindfulness that can be used during anyone’s journey toward spiritual transformation, a tool that can assist in living more purposefully, more authentically, and more joyfully.

Working with reflections helps the reader make empowered choices that imbue their lives and relationships with real substance and depth. A Voice as Old as Time can be used in daily practice or as a divination tool to see what reflective energy is needed in the users life.

The Thriver Workbook: Journey From Victim To Survivor To Thriver! by Susan M. Omilian
There is a journey beyond abuse, beyond being a victim and even a survivor. It is the journey to becoming a “thriver” — a healthy, happy person with a brilliant and productive future ahead of her! The Thriver Workbook: Journey from Victim to Survivor to Thriver! by Susan M. Omilian provides the critical “next step” for women who have been abused to permanently break the cycle of violence in their lives. With easy-to-read work sheets, invigorating writing exercises and inspirational success stories, The Thriver Workbook contains the motivational guidance Susan has used since 2001 in her My Avenging Angel Workshops™ to help women reclaim their lives after abuse. The award-winning originator and facilitator of the workshops based on the idea that “living well is the best revenge,” Susan came to this work when her nineteen-year-old niece Maggie was killed by her ex-boyfriend in 1999. Susan realized the power of a moment when a woman decides to leave an abuser and start a new life but since Maggie didn’t have that moment, Susan vowed to help other women transform their lives after abuse as Maggie could not.

The Thriver Workbook provides a road map to this healing journey and is invaluable not only to victims of abuse and trauma but also to their families, friends, attorneys, counselors, therapists and crisis center staff. The workbook helps the women quiet their inner critic, discover the happy person inside them and identify positive patterns in their lives so that they can set new, achievable short and long term goals for themselves and their children.

A Companion CD to The Thriver Workbook which includes songs, music and guided meditations is available with the workbook on Susan’s website, www.thriverzone.com and on Amazon.com. Susan can also present on her work to community groups, schools and service providers. Susan can be reached at susanom@comcast.net or (860) 236-2401.

 

PayneLook Up! To Find Connection And Mindfulness by Jen Payne
When Branford, Connecticut writer Jen Payne would go for walks in the woods, she did so with no purpose beyond finding a moment of peace and respite. The results, however, were two-fold: magical moments of connection, and the makings of her book, LOOK UP! Musings on the Nature of Mindfulness. Having long enjoyed avocations of the creative life, including short story and poetry writing, as well as photography, Jen began posting her thoughts and observations on her blog, Random Acts of Writing. Over the years, as her journey of regular walks and postings continued, she realized that she had not only “learned to look up,” but that in so doing, she had found much more: the “peace, solace, joy and connection” that can be found by being in nature.

Published by Three Chairs Publishing, LOOK UP! is a masterful narration of one woman’s journey from running her own business 24/7, to the rediscovery of the joys she knew as a child playing outdoors and a new connection with the world around her. Presented season by season through journaled reflections about nature, life, breath, balance, and mindfulness, this insightful book engages the reader through 75 essays and poems, and 100 original, color photos of the woods and shoreline of Connecticut. Woven in between are quotations by philosophers, poets, naturalists, and treasured writers, including such kindred spirits as Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, the Dalai Lama and Jon Kabat-Zinn.

This is done through reflecting on the wisdom of many spiritual teachers from multiple spiritual traditions.

Through deep contemplative sessions, the reader is provided with guidance to release the false beliefs and fears that hold them back from knowing the Truth of who they are.

HawleyWhen Love Wins: Our Journey to Peace by Tami Hawley
When Love Wins is about choosing love. Choose love and love will find you. Would you rather have peace of mind or be right? Would you rather love or hate? Would you rather be whole again or continue to play the victim? If you said the latter in each of these then this book isn’t for you. It’s for the rest of us who have decided that happiness is more important than anything egotistical or materialistic. It’s for the rest of us who want peace.

It began with God on a Harley. I read the book twice. I’d gone through a divorce, lost my identity, never became what and who I wanted to be. That book came into my life at the right time and changed my life. At that moment I realized that I, like everyone else, deserved to be happy and loved. After deciding it was time to pick myself back up, I was recommended a book called Let Your Life Speak. I read it then, but when I read it again years later, it became clear. I’d been an avid reader and writer my entire life. Spirituality was something I’d always felt so deeply. It was time to combine all my passions.

When Love Wins:  Our Journey to Peace shows how I took the lessons I learned and applied them to my life, without preaching or scaring readers off by using words like “religion” and “God.” It helps people feel a part of each other, not apart from each other. Hopefully it will make even one person think more, love more. When Love Wins:  Our Journey to Peace is available exclusively through TheDivineDove.com, $15.

 

Amendola 2The Tower and the Land: Awakening to the Light by Gloria Amendola
Gloria Amendola has released her second novel, published by Grave Distractions Publications. It is the second book in the series that began with The Tower and the Dream: Awakening to the Call. For years this Connecticut native has traveled the globe to explore myth and legend, sacred sites and their effect on consciousness. What she has uncovered is a truth that shatters history as we know it!

Amendola facilitates teaching circles, offering participants an opportunity to experience the process of self-transformation, coupled with the knowledge drawn from esoteric wisdom. She also continues as a practicing intuitive, reading for clients worldwide. Gloria’s novels offer her audience a blend of mystical experiences combined with the alchemical labyrinth true seekers encounter on their adventures to find the ever-elusive grail. But this is a grail of a very different understanding, one that may surprise you!

These two esoteric thrillers follow Marta Antonelli as she is guided by the voices that have awakened in her since that one fateful day in her life when everything changed.

In The Tower and the Land: Awakening to the Light, Marta sets out for France – to find the legendary manuscript she was told is buried in the countryside of Rennes le Chateau.

No sooner than Marta’s feet touch French soil, Joan of Arc’s spirit appears. The vision she receives is puzzling but she’s determined to decode it. She is certain it leads to the writings of Jesus. Walk with her as she unravels the enduring mysteries of France and the hidden truths that have been guarded there by secret societies throughout time.

Amendola 1Mary Magdalene: Revelations From A First Century Avatar by Gloria Amendola
Gloria Amendola has just released her third book, published by Grave Distractions Publications. This latest release is titled Mary Magdalene: Revelations From A First Century Avatar. In it, Mary comes to life right before your very eyes. Through this channeled book, Mary shares fascinating details of her early life, her esoteric training, and her walk with the master teacher and healer known to us as Jesus.

For years this Connective native has traveled the globe to explore myth and legend, sacred sites and their effect on consciousness. But what drove that quest was to follow the voice of Mary Magdalene, one that she has connected with since the year 2000. This guiding spirit has accompanied her for thirteen years, and this book is the result of that relationship.

In this book, a strong case is made for the true identity of Mary. She is not the redeemed prostitute, but rather a woman of extraordinary power who, in her time, was considered the equal to Jesus. In this new release, Mary answers specific questions and explains the differences between the fabled civilizations of Egypt and Atlantis, the Mystery Schools, the process of initiation into expanded awareness, and how we can begin to learn the ancient wisdom of the Mysteries. Find out why Mary believes the time is now for people to rediscover these incredible teachings! In this riveting account, we are given a glimpse into the life of the Magdalene, of what she and Jesus believed about their mission, and what they foresaw for the future of humanity – a future that Mary says is unfolding right now…

Amendola facilitates teaching circles throughout the United States, offering participants an opportunity to experience the process of self-transformation, coupled with the knowledge drawn from esoteric wisdom. She also continues as a practicing intuitive, reading for clients worldwide. Books are available on Amazon, Kindle and Grave Distractions Publications.

Hardie ReleasementSoul Releasement: Assisting Souls into the Light by Barbara Hardie
This new book by Barbara Hardie explains “how to” information on the following topics:
* Assisting Earthbound Souls into the Light
* Assisting Soul Attachments into the Light
* Assisting Souls from the Resting Area into the Light
* Retrieval and Integration of Your Soul Fragments* Whitney Houston’s Journey to the Other Side

Are you experiencing “ghost” activity? If so, it could be an earthbound (soul) entity trying to get your attention. Are you feeling fatigued and doing or saying things out of character for you? If so, you could be hosting an earthbound (soul) entity referred to as an attachment or possession. It is not an automatic process for the soul, upon physical death, to rise upward into the higher dimensions known as Heaven. There are many reasons why souls decide to stay on earth, but it is NOT a good place to be without a physical body.

Soul Releasement work is part of my soul contract and my Heavenly Helpers have guided me in this process and asked that I share the information in Soul Releasement: Assisting Souls into the Light so that individuals are able to keep their energy fields clear of energy that does not belong to them. Also, during this time of Ascension, it is important for us to retrieve and integrate fragments of our own soul which may have exited during turbulent / traumatic times in our life. It is our responsibility to collect these fragments and integrate them back into our physical body or have them escorted to our Parent Soul in the higher dimensions.

Written as a series of dialogues between a seeker of truth and his God Self, Alvaro Bizziccari’s beautifully written book is a landmark achievement in the field. Drawing on the timeless wisdom of East and West, Dialogues With My God Self gives clear and insightful answers to questions such as:

  • What is God’s relation to the individual?
  • Who am I? What is the purpose of my being here?
  • What is the origin of evil and the cause of suffering?
  • What is love?
  • Is it related to sex?
  • Why is the polarity of male and female the supreme principle of life acting everywhere in the universe?
  • What is the Law of cause and effect, and how can you use it for yourself, instead of against you?

Dr. Alvaro Bizziccari received his Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Rome, Italy, before moving to the United States. He is now a retired professor Emeritus of humanistic studies at the University of Connecticut.

GriffithSoul Soothers: Mini Meditations for Busy Lives by Cindy Griffith
In Soul Soothers, Ms. Griffith has designed a program for a regular meditation practice that can be applied in our busy world today, one that is simple and can be modified for any and all schedules, from a young mother with small children to a professional with appointments and daily hassles. A daily meditation routine has clear benefits for everyone, but not everyone can set aside a 30-minute block of time each day to meditate. Soul Soothers shows us how to apply the wisdom and applications of such a daily meditation routine into our busy lives. Ms. Griffith takes that 30 minute block of time and breaks it down into manageable pieces, just a few minutes at a time, using normal daily events like waiting in line or sitting in a restaurant waiting for a friend who is routinely late, to breath and relax, to go within and connect.  Gradually, over a whole day, using these sorts of normal events as a motivation to meditate, you accumulate the 30 minutes, and experience all the benefits. By using these few minutes at a time meditations, over a full and busy day, a young mother or busy professional can bring the full benefits of meditation to their lives, their health and the mind/body/soul well-being and connection. Soul Soothers is well written and organized to be easy and fun to read! Both spiritual and practical; not only does it say what to do, but why and how to apply it. One cannot read it without trying the various meditations. They are lovely! This book reads smoothly and quickly, and the information builds upon itself so that one learns as one goes along. It is one of the best books on meditation I have ever found. I would like to say it is required reading. Thank you, Cindy, for working so hard to put it together. Virginia Waldron, CH, CI – Meditation Teacher, Certified Consulting Hypnotist, and Certified Instructor in Hypnosis. Soul Soothers ($14.95) is published by Findhorn Press and is available in your local bookstores as well as on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com. You can get your signed copy of Soul Soothers through Cindy’s sites: PsychicSupport.com and SpiritualSimpicityBooks.com!

Distorted Vision Once Removed by Dale Ellenbogen
When a maiden
I envisioned cronehood
in fake fabric suits
unrecognizable to myself
maiden eyes believing
the brighter the light
the clearer the vision
Well
Here I am again
all baggy jeans again
on the sadder side of sixty
still holding hands
in public yet!
with the gift
that existed only
in my dreams
knowing each absurdity
carries the truth
that only twilight
brings.

This is an excerpt from Cronespeak by Dale Ellenbogen. Cronespeak is a book of poems about a journey that starts at the end and zigzags. In a broader sense, these poems constitute an autobiography that could be about almost anyone. These observations are through the mind of one but experienced by many. Poems of love, anger, frustration, sadness, and joy illustrate the struggles of a human vehicle searching for a thread of truth that could somehow make sense of it all. These are not poems of abstract philosophies.  These are the poems of someone who works for a living, cares for a home and family, and has never (except in dreams) seen an ivory tower. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to laugh, cry, think, and yell in the span of a few pages. Cronespeak is available on amazon.com.

Gevera Bert Piedmont has published two wonderful books on 2012. The first is Jaguar Nights 2012 Mayan-Aztec Calendar: Synchronize Yourself with Galactic Time. Use this calendar as a guide to the various energies of the Meso-American calendar system. Choose to follow one or all of the cycles — the sacred 260-day counts of the Tzolkin and Tonalpohualli, the secular 365-day calendars, the Mayan Long Count,and the Moon cycles. Discover the energy of portal, burner and assimilation days! Also includes affirmations, a countdown to the 2012 event, and holidays—all in a portable format that can be used as a daily affirmations guide and astrological diary. This astrological guide to the Mayan and Aztec calendar system was written by a Shaman of Mayanism. It includes in-depth information on the various calendar systems, and uses the GMT correlation, which places the first day of Baktun 13 on December 21, 2012 — the same correlation still used by Quiche daykeepers in Guatemala. Available for $16.00 on Amazon.com or directly from the author through www.ObsidianButterfly.com or www.Facebook.com/JaguarNights.

Her second book is Jaguar Nights, A Journey Through the Tzolkin, Exploring the Mayan-Aztec Sacred Calendar. The Mayan Tzolkin is a beautiful and simple calendar as well as a system of astrology and divination. It holds the keys to many doors and to life cycles previously unnoticed. Jaguar Nights is a uniquely organized reference book devoted to this sacred 260-day cycle. Each of the 260 dates has two pages of comprehensive information. No more searching to figure out what everything means! It includes advanced and brand-new material on how to use the calendar for divination augury, relationship compatibility, rituals, and electional astrology, all fully explained, plus 94 years of correlation charts so you can match your significant dates to their Tzolkin equivalents. Use Jaguar Nights as a daykeeping journal and energy guide, and as a reference manual. When you immerse yourself in an alternate view of time, the world starts to look different. You relate in a new way as you see patterns that you never noticed before. Learn to define your place in the great spiral of time, and find your connection to the cosmos, with the Tzolkin. Step out of your world for a little while, and find a new set of rhythms to live by.  It’s about time! Available for $30.00 on Amazon.com or directly from the author through www.ObsidianButterfly.com or www.Facebook.com/JaguarNights.

Bennett VoyageVoyage of Purpose: Spiritual Wisdom from Near-Death Back to Life by David Bennett and Cindy Griffith-Bennett
In Voyage of Purpose, David and his wife Cindy have delivered an extra-ordinarily absorbing read. This is the story of a regular guy, a macho engineer and diver whose life is dramatically transformed by not one, but multiple brushes with death. It reveals, for the first time, why many who have experienced near death believe that “dying is hard, but returning to life can be even harder.” Bennett drowns after being caught up in a violent storm off the coast of California. He describes in fascinating detail his death, the beings of light he experienced, his life review, and the vision he is given into his future. The intensity of this incident, however, leaves Bennett floundering in a mixture of doubt and skepticism so extreme that he tells virtually no one about it and he candidly describes how he spends years learning how to integrate his experience into his life without any form of help. Years later, he is diagnosed with stage IV cancer in his lungs and in his bones. His cancer is so severe that his spine has collapsed. Once more, though riddled with tumors, Bennett miraculously survives. Bennett’s incredible Voyage of Purpose teaches him about living, loving, and how to find purpose in life.

Microsoft Word - Hardie book cover.docCreating Heaven on Earth – A Guide to Personal Ascension by Barbara Hardie
Creating Heaven will appeal to individuals curious about who they are spiritually. It explains that what we are going through at this time in Earth’s history is why we came into physical form in the first place and provides the necessary tools to be able to reside in the “eye of the storm” during chaotic times. It is all part of the Divine Plan and the beginning of a new, peaceful type of life on Earth – not the end of life or the planet. The old negative ways are being dissolved by the amount of Light energy being downloaded to Planet Earth. The energy shifts are causing the cells in our physical bodies to transform from carbon-based to crystalline (Light), raising our vibration and preparing us to become Ascended Masters. This book outlines very simple things an individual can do to consciously relieve the pain caused by the cellular transformation, and raise their level of vibration so that they will feel peaceful and calm no matter what is going on around them. Creating Heaven on Earth – A Guide to Personal Ascension will take the reader from the creation of God and the human Soul, through the path of the Soul from Spirit to Earth and back to the Light, a discussion of why suicide is not an option, symptoms of ascension, and how to ease the pain and suffering of these symptoms, how to become an Ascended Master in this lifetime, and finally to a look at life on Earth in the near and distant futures. Barbara M. Hardie is a channel for the Ascended Masters and Archangels and has included information received from these wonderful Light Beings over the past 20 years. She is an Ordained Spiritualist Minister, Certified Spiritual Healer, Medium & Counselor and a Certified Master Hypnotherapist. Contact her at (413) 258-0228 or bhardiema@aol.com. The Book is available through www.angelconnections.com amazon.com.

 

SiegelA Book of Miracles: Inspiring True Stories of Healing, Gratitude, and Love by Bernie Siegel, M.D.
Dr. Siegel first wrote about miracles when he was a practicing surgeon and founded Exceptional Cancer Patients, a groundbreaking synthesis of group, individual, dream, and art therapy that provided patients with a “carefrontation.” Compiled during his more than thirty years of practice, speaking, and teaching, the stories in these pages are riveting, warm, and belief expanding. Their subjects include a girl whose baby brother helped her overcome anorexia, a woman whose cancer helped her heal by teaching her to stand up for herself, and a family that was saved from a burning house by bats. Without diminishing the reality of pain and hardship, the stories show real people turning crisis into blessing by responding to adversity in ways that empower and heal. They demonstrate what we are capable of and show us that we can achieve miracles as we confront life’s difficulties. The book is available at bookstores everywhere and also at this website: New World Library

FarnsworthWhere the Lost Things Go by Barbara Farnsworth
The premise for my first book had been growing in my mind since I met my husband in December 2001. The words to my children’s book flowed out of my conscience and onto paper in June 2001. Having heard that getting a book published was extremely difficult, I put the book idea aside. Then on February 19, 2011, I was led by a friend to a book, written by a most talented and famous illustrator, Sheila McGraw, well known for her illustrations in the book Love You Forever. Just holding the book in my hands and looking at the cover, I knew I wanted her to illustrate my book. Her illustrations just resonated in my soul. I emailed my manuscript to her as she suggested and her answer was yes, she would illustrate my book. So began our cyber relationship and the daunting process of self publishing through CreateSpace. My book can be purchased through my website, farnsworthbarbara.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble (on-line) or heavenlybooks@yahoo.com. Reviews are welcome on any of the above sites. I have so enjoyed the journey of seeing my book “born” and the positive response to it.

Choose a card from the deck when you need a reminder to love yourself. Message titles include: Empower yourself, Encourage yourself, Respect yourself, Be fair with yourself and Trust yourself.

Rita’s brightly painted artwork on each card reflects her journey in search of self-love. And each message on the back reflects the wisdom that she gained along the way.

That is why these cards are so important. They remind us to treat ourselves, speak to ourselves and see ourselves with unconditional self-love no matter the circumstance. Unconditional self-love is a healing force that empowers us to change our lives and the world around us for the better. Use these cards to start your day in alignment with self-love or choose a card when you are in need of a loving message. Because of their small size they are convenient to place inside a greeting card as a token gift and to hand out to groups and friends.

9781477266502_COVER.inddEssential Empowerment: The Fine Art of Creating and Living an Empowered Life by Paulette Meijer
Author Meijer takes readers on a creative journey toward Essential Empowerment℠.  The book follows Meijer’s Paint Your New Life Canvas Workshops where participants closely examine their immediate life state, then define, refine and articulate their vision for their future. Workshop exercises begin and end with life canvases – personal artful expressions of current being and future vision. Personal artful expressions are scattered throughout the book. Those personal canvases and the aggregate exercises, in the book and in the classroom, are integral parts of the process of personal development. Are you living day by day or loving life? Are you a victim of events or a perpetrator of change? Are you ready to be an active participant in your future? Yes? Perfect, because this book is all about you – your life as it is today, where you want it to be and how you can make it happen using a simple formula and a little imagination. This is an action book filled with in-your-face reality, so take off your rose-colored glasses, find the magnifying glass, and dig out the crayons. It’s time to get to work on you! “The process of putting my life’s vision on canvas was anything but what I expected it would be. It takes a certain amount of vulnerability to engage in a medium you are unfamiliar with physically as well as to open your emotions to create. From the first brush stroke, empowerment emerged. To bring all that home in my finished painting to look at and reflect upon, is a continual reinforcement of what essential empowerment means.” Sheryl Jones Dougherty.

Books are also available at Barnes and Noble stores and online at barnesandnoble.com and amazon.com.

Are You A Victim Or A Creator Of Your Health And Happiness? by Dr. Henry GraysonGraysonThere are many people who feel stressed and therefore get sick, as it is now recognized that over 80% of our physical symptoms are stress related. We tend to think that our stress is caused by external influences: mainstream media with 95% negative newscasts, the medical tyranny of the government-pharmaceutical collaboration, war mongering politicians, the news about the latest virus going around, the “suggestion” in the daily allergy reports, as well as the unstable economy. And then there are difficult work situations and challenges in our marriages or with our children. And we all experience losses at one time or another. But the big question is, “Do we have to be at the effect of all these negative influences? Are we essentially powerless victims of the world around us?” Does stress come from external events, or is it more from how we react to them – essentially how we think and interpret these happenings?

“In my newly released book, Use Your Body to Heal Your Mind: Revolutionary Methods to Release Your Barriers to Health and Happiness, I identify effective ways we can identify the origin of our physical and emotional symptoms, so we can get away from just treating the symptom which is what most medical interventions do. We can get to the origin of the symptoms instead and deal with those directly, thereby freeing up substantial energy for healing and sustained health and happiness. Demonstrations of these highly effective methods can be downloaded from my website at www.henrygrayson.com so you can use them more easily.”

Dr. Henry Grayson is a scientific, spiritual, mind body psychologist who founded and directed the National Institute for the Psychotherapies in New York City. He is the author of Mindful Loving (in its twentieth printing), the best-selling Sounds True Audio Series, The New Physics of Love, as well as co-author of three professional books. Dr. Grayson integrates diverse psychotherapies with neuroscience, quantum physics, subtle energies with Eastern and Western spiritual mindfulness. He practices in New York City and Connecticut.
