Earth Angels are described as extremely sweet people who care more about others’ happiness than their own. Without proper boundaries Earth Angels find themselves in manipulating or abusive relationships because of their lack of knowledge in how to stand up for themselves because of their lack of ability of saying no due to guilt.
Through out the book Doreen Virtue gives personal experiences and lessons learned in her own attempt and success in learning and applying personal boundaries for herself in her own life.
The book is divided into four sections:
The beginning of the book explains the role of Earth Angels and why they accept an earthly role for their mission on Earth. Personalities and mindsets of an Earth Angel are explained and their importance in the world. Because of their sweet nature most find themselves being over whelmed with other people’s problems because of their inability to say no, avoidance of confrontations and deep understanding of an individual’s potential and deep desire to help ‘fix’ the other person. Often it is the failure of establishing boundaries that is the main reasons leading the ‘Earth Angel’ into abusive or manipulative relationships.
Part one deals with and sets a course on how to recognize their overly helpful nature and establish personal boundaries which will help them be able to say no without guilt and to acknowledge their right to be treated with respect.
The second part of the book explores developing assertiveness in relationships and identify whether they are toxic. Suggestions and guidance are provided to determine toxic relationship and how to separate yourself from them.
The third part of the book gives guidance in applying assertiveness in a positive way out in the world, to avoid drama and to maintain one’s own power to find the enjoyment of life. The fourth section gives key tools to use that will help to keep emotions in check and not drain one’s energy because of unwisely taking on too many problems of others. It offers techniques in remaining balanced and thinking of personal needs. Once finding their balance, the Earth Angel discovers their true mission to pursue on Earth.
This is an extremely well written book clearly stating ways to be assertive, without being over assertive, by establishing boundaries for yourself and with others. I read the book quickly because of organized and clear way in which it was written. I feel it is a useful instructional manual that can be referred to over and over again.
“How Did I Get Where I am, and How Do I Get Where I want to Be?” Have you ever asked yourself that question? Most of us have and that is exactly the subject matter that is discussed in this book. In fact the question I just asked you is part of the title.
This book is a revised edition of the original release of Choices many years ago. The reader therefore will notice the same examples and text used in the previous one.
The book points out that most of the decisions we have made in life are due to our influences, environment and people that share our life. One example given is from a story about an eagle that was raised by chickens and believed too that she was a chicken. Her habits were the same as the other chickens and she performed the same routines although treated different than by other chicken. She chose to think she was not as good as the others rather than to entertain the idea that she was different and perhaps had a different role in life. When approached by another eagle who remarked on her beauty, revealing to her that she was really an eagle, she was given the opportunity to soar the skies rather than to spend the rest of her days peaking the dirt and feeling less of a chicken then the rest. Her decision was to not believe the eagle and escape into the chicken coop to join the other chickens. She could not escape how she had to be programmed to believe about herself and did not realize that the choice she made at that very moment had been decided for her by the perception of herself in the eyes of the other chickens. The illusion in her life was that she was a chicken and she turned her back on the opportunity to be an eagle.
The point of this book is that everyone of us has been give false illusions of ourselves and our role in life. These influences are from family, friends and media bombardment. This book teaches powerful ways we can identify those illusions by being aware of our perceptions and behaviors that have been self taught or accepted from our past influences and shows the reader how to take back their choices and end the illusions in their lives.
This edition of the book also comes with a copy of an InnerTalk CD. Eldon Taylor is the inventor of the patented InnerTalk technology which has been used by millions.
Gary Renard's books focuses on The Course of Miracles and his learning experiences in life studying and teaching the course and the wise teachings of Arten and Pursah.
This book pertains and encourages forgiveness and by the time the reader gets to the end of the book they should understand that of true forgiveness is the key to all perceived problems.
The subject matter dealing with what happens to individuals after death are discussed by Arten and Pursah and examples of the practice of forgiving are given in real experiences by the author.
Gary Renard frequently uses portion of Course of Miracles to reinforce the intent of depending on the Holy Spirit to make our decisions and see this world through the eyes of our true spiritual selves and recognizing illusions we once felt were reality. Suggestions of depending on the Holy Spirit to not become attached to the physical world we have placed ourselves in while not feel guilty over enjoying the day to day pleasures while on the road to enlightenment are also explained in this book.
Gary Renard has written two other books named The Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality are the first two books of this trilogy and I would recommend reading those two first before purchasing this book so the reader may become accustomed to the history or the contents. If you are thinking about delving into reading Course of Miracles then I would recommend reading Gary’s first book of Disappearance of the Universe which would give a more stable foundation of understanding ‘The Course’.
There were portions of this book I really enjoyed, some that I had a hard time wrapping my head around and some that I felt drug a little bit in reference to my interests. If you have read the other two books then I suggest buying this book to complete the set and read the new thoughts expressed.
If you have never read a book by Sonia Choquette then I will tell you that you are not just receiving a book, you are receiving a manual to use to achieve what she tells you in the book what is possible.
Tune In by Sonia Choquestte
Tune In is exactly the same type of book. It is a revised and expanded edition of her book The Power of Your Spirit.
She uses past examples of her life experiences and those of her clients to illustrate the process of letting your intuition guide you to fulfillment and flow.
Basically this is a four-step plan for achieving lifelong inner transformation backed up with examples and exercises to practice while reading and performing the steps.
Exercises in breathing techniques, visualizations, journal thought provoking questions to ask and write answers to ensure some quality well thought out answers to ponder.
Steps in this book focus on Waking up, Digging Deep, Taking the Leap, and Entering the Flow.
The advice in this book is practical and down to earth practical techniques that can be applied to normal everyday situations. The author helps the reader relax and let go and ask the right questions in order to discover their intuition that will guide them to the correct choices in their life.
Sonia Choquette has been working with people for more than 32 years of almost daily one-on-one private consultations. Sonia was educated at the University of Denver and at the Sorbonne in Paris, and holds a Ph.D. in metaphysics. Sonia feels and stresses that using our intuition is “no longer optional. Working with and strengthening our intuition is becoming more and more fundamental to our ability to live harmoniously with ourselves and others in the new world order.”
Dr. Kinslow has written a book written to aid in meditations and teaching the reader how to be mindful of ones awareness in the experience of no thought while not associating it with feelings which in fact increases awareness.
Dr. Kinslow calls this, “Pure Awareness”. Several tips are given to bring about peace and new perspectives while pursuing one’s daily routines and can be practiced while traveling or performing general tasks such as brushing your teeth or traveling.
The book offers several good tips on achieving the states of a term of Eufeeling. Eufeeling is basically a feeling you can create inwardly using stillness to reach a state of awareness. The state of Eufeeling is described as an act of joy, peace, stillness and silence. It’s also about becoming intimately aware of your self through your body and meditation.
This book walks you through step-by-step exercises of his personal techniques like Quantum Entrainment, Pure Awareness, Stopping Thoughts and Quantum Entrainment Triangulation.
The meditations are great for a beginner and will be appreciated by the veterans of meditation.
The author takes a lot of time to discuss his methods so that someone new to this method will be well-informed and confident in the techniques. Although some would find this approach comforting and may be needed to prepare an individual to a new train of thought I felt the author took too long to express his ideas in the first few chapters.
Do you believe that miracles still happen? How about angels? Are angels just heavenly creatures that were messengers of God and are now just read about like historical events that once occurred? Is the subject of angels and your belief in their existence some thing you’d gladly share or would you be intimidated because you would be afraid that people would think you were weird? What if you had such a powerful experience with an angel that it would feel sacrilegious if you didn’t share it with others?
Doreen Virtue’s new book, The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel focuses on the archangel Gabriel and his accounts through history and present times of services performed for God.
I’ve always enjoyed reading these accounts of angels by Doreen Virtue. I enjoy the research that has gone into the accounts of these heavenly messengers. Gabriel has shown up in the bible numerous times.
Angles have fascinated the world since the day of bible times. Accounts of their service to man kind has been recorded int the bible as messengers and extensions of the hand of God. Stories of their intervention has been handed down in story from generation to generations.
Artists have depicted these heavenly hosts through paintings and sculptors have attempted to capture their beauty in their artwork. Angels have been with us and continue to be the messengers of God delivering prophesies and announcements of good tidings and miracles to occur. Holy scriptures of the Bible, Torah, the Dead Sea Scrolls and numerous other texts embraced by the populace are filled with the numerous accounts and individual angels themselves.
Gabriel guides those who are human messengers, such as, teachers, writers, artists, and parents wishing to conceive and adopt. Interestingly enough Gabriel also is the angelic guide of those who blog as well. There are several stories in this book relating events of how this angel also helped individuals in communications.
Along with these fascinating stories and well know events that occurred in history, the book is filled with beautiful pictures of artists interpretations of angels. This book would be a very inspiring and encouraging book for those in or pursuing this type of work and would allow them to get to know their guardian angel better.
No matter what life situation I find myself I can always reach back and use a tool that I have acquired from one of their books. Each book has either confirmed and re-enforced a past lesson or taught me something new.
Once again they have equipped me with another tool that has already proved so valuable by allowing me to read Your Hidden Symmetry: How Your Birth Date Reveals The Plan For Your Life by Jean Haner.
The book was very interesting and easy to understand. It gives the reader a graph of birth year and birth date range to find the numbers that correlate in their lives to find valuable tools to recognize, potential, and hindrances.
Jean Haner has studied Chinese Medicine teachings of the human spirit for over a number of years and wrote this book to equip the reader with an energizing map to gain knowledge of their life according to her knowledge received from her studies.
I must admit that I was a little skeptical because in the past these types of things seem so broad in the specifics being told that I recognize that the information can easily be transferred over at any certain point in a person’s life. In the past I’ve also felt these so-called life guiding techniques have added to my confusion than dissolved it.
Not so with this book! I had several moments of enlightenment which caused me to see and recognize things in my life that were being used as a block to prevent me from having the confidence to go forward. The author has developed a life map correlated with their birth date and year to devise a graph that the reader may use to find three principal numbers that will guide them to discover their main personality, emotional self, challenges and the reader’s true calling. Additional information is given in regards to each person’s elemental nature and personal seasons. The book also includes stories of past clients and how this method was used to enhance their lives.
I found that the experience of reading this book dissolved guilt from my past experiences to allow me to know my personality better and why I behave in the way that I do and did. More importantly it gives me the tools to recognize that frailty or strength so I will not repeat past mistakes from a thorough understanding of why I react in that way to safe guard me and make better decisions.
I personally learned that the emotion of fear is what can and has blocked me from pursuing avenues I should take in life. Amazingly enough just this week someone in my life was challenging a decision I made for my life and I recognized they were using the emotion of fear to convince me to change my mind. Because I read this book I recognized that fear was being used to block me and felt more confident to have the confidence to pursue my well thought out choice rather than being intimidated by the fear tactic they were using. Recognizing the tactic of fear caused me to further examine their reasoning and realized their choice in my life was unfounded based on illogical thoughts rather than fact. In the past I would have reacted to that fear and totally shut down and been fearful of going forward. What a relief it was to be sure of my decision than the self-doubt and paranoia that would have normally followed.
The added benefit of this book is that there is a section filled with affirmations from Louise Hay that can be used to help strengthen and encourage the reader according to their life and the path they were born to pursue.
If your interested in giving yourself some useful tools you can use in your life to understand yourself and develop into a stronger more confident individual then this book just may be for you!
Most know that Feng Shui is used for interior design to bring harmony and balance to one’s life. Cheryl Grace inspires us to think about using Fung Shui for fine tuning the internal environment within ourselves in her book called Feng Shui Simply Change Your Life From the Inside Out.
To use Feng Shui for inner growth the author suggests that first it is important to clear old belief systems, skepticism and doubt and fixed opinions and stop being inflexible in our view points.
Aligning thoughts for a better outlook on life are presented in this book. Some of the techniques suggested are:
Those approaches consist of simplifying your life
Take everything that happens in your life as a gift (Both perceived good and bad.)
Practice deep appreciation and let go of the 5 year plan and serve others.
The book is rich with information and resources so the reader can continually learn Feng Shui for inner harmonious balance and growth after the book is finished being read.
I found this book very inspiring with a new approach that makes me so excited to study these techniques further. This is a book I love and know it will be a book I will continually read as a viable resource. I’ve learned so much about using Feng Shui both in the home and using it inwardly to reach goals and balance I want in my life.
The book is written simply with a Bagua Map with the zones that correlate with the energetic qualities needed to bring harmony.
Feng Shui Simply by Cheryl Grace is a great book encouraging the reader by giving them self-confidence in using techniques that can bring great results. Another thing I love about this book are the suggestions of books that can be read to continue learning techniques of Feng Shui that can be used to gain better intuition.
Kate Mackinnon writes about her experiences with this type of therapy and gives examples of how she used it to bring relief to those suffering before embarking on this type of therapy. She explains how she began using this technique as a physical therapist and how she feels it is a more natural technique that cooperates with the body’s ability to heal.
The book gives several examples of her technique and the results they brought by using her hands and intuition while using CST. A large team of practitioners are now favoring this method in which they feel the focus is more on individual's well-being. A portion of the book is also devoted to explaining how individual may help themselves at home between sessions. It suggests simple, safe techniques that anyone can perform and receive.
Although I personally found this book a little hard to get interested in and be excited about reading, I did think of people in my life that would probably enjoy reading it and applying it to their lives. I don't doubt the effectiveness of this technique I just found the book to be a little average and dry in the way it was written. I think those already in the profession of massage or physical therapy would probably enjoy the book and add the knowledge to their skill to launch a new career and steps to deepen their knowledge of helping people through touch.
The author Robert Holden, Ph.D writes a wonderful book asking the question why aren’t courses offered in education facilities that teach about love? If the reader is not aware how important the emotion of love is then they will before the end of the book.
The book has fun insights of the author’s childhood history as he reveals his curiosity and certainty of how important this emotion is to all aspects of our life.
Throughout the book the author reinforces his belief that “Love is the real work of your life” and “As you release the blocks to love you flourish even more in your relationships, work, and life.”
This book is packed with inspiring gems and tips to becoming aware of love and how to get it in your life.
Loveability is a great book to use if some one wanting to build self-esteem and to practice the art of loving yourself. There are constructive tips and exercises to use and why it is so important to love yourself so you can love others all the more.
This book is sectioned off into five parts entitled:
• Love Is Your Destiny
• Love Is Who Your Are
• Love Has No Conditions
• Love Knows No Fear
• Love Is The Answer
Some of the things I enjoyed in this book besides the contents are the wonderful quotes used and the references to books the author read that brought him to the point of his knowledge about this subject. It sparked my interest to the point where I have jotted down a few of the titles so I can better explore the emotion of love myself.
Whether a reader would love to practice self-love or keeping a relationship with a significant partner strong then this book has lots of useful tips. Robert Holder is the best-selling author of Happiness Now, Authentic Success, and Shift Happens. He is also the creator of the ‘Loveability program’ so is an excellent resource for guiding his readers to the importance of love.
The Importance of Being Extraordinary is a 2 CD Set of a live lecture of the #1 New York Times Best Selling Authors Eckhart Tolle and Dr. Wayne Dyer.
The CD consists of opinions of these remarkable influential people on a variety of topics.
Both men discuss biblical text and how they apply to our lives and also explore problems existing in today’s time. The CD is filled with humor, wisdom and philosophical insight from both men. Among the topics discussed are the subject of Ego and if it is always bad and the meaning of life.
I was curious before hearing this CD if each speaker would compliment each other of if one speaker would dominate the other. Both speakers personalities blended perfectly and gave profound wisdom to the listener. Listening to this CD I knew it would be hard to review it as the information given was vast and could be personalized and applied to who ever listened to this CD set. At times the conversation was very deep and encompassing. It is a CD that will reach the masses in completely different ways relating to each person’s individual and spiritual needs. Also this CD will grow with the listener as each time it is listened to will no doubt give guidance not previously realized before as the individual grows higher in spirit levels.
I thought Eckhart Tolle’s interpretations of bible verses were very effective and gave me an in depth realization of the meaning of the text. The topic of positive thinking was discussed and if it was still viable in today’s time. Dr. Dyer once suggested a thought of perhaps it would be best to not focus on Christ dying on the cross but yet the resurrection where Eckhart Tolle suggested that the crucifixion was viable as without the crucifixion then the resurrection would not have been possible. Both agreed that a portion of their growth was because of practicing positive thinking. Those not familiar with either men or those that are already fans will enjoy this CD set and find it a useful resource to ponder, learn and grow in their spiritual life.
TransenDancExpanded by Michael Benard Beckwith is an encouraging and inspirational book that renews the spirit of those readers that need it and confirms and encourages those to remain on their spiritual path that are already on the journey. The book comes with a wonderful CD filled with Michael Beckwith’s music. Both the message of this book and the music creates a spiritual dance between the reader/listener and the higher power of the Universe.
Michael Beckwith makes a very interesting point in this book. Life events often hinder us and then block our spiritual stream. He states that the Latin core word of ‘interest’ means “to love.” If you pursue God from this type of interest you will then learn to love and fall in love with God.
I found that point so inspiring and true when thinking of interests I’ve pursued in the past. When I was truly interested in learning about something it became my passion and I lived and breathed it. Isn’t that how our relationship should be with God? Not just paying lip service but love living it? After reading this book you may want to dance through your life too because you’ll find you are now participating fully in the celebration of your relationship with the universe and your place in it.
This book is divided in nine chapters that will inspire the reader in their spiritual journey. So many wonderful points are made in this book that will really cause deep thought and recognition to our roles we should be playing while on Earth.
Attitude is everything and being aware of what God is doing in our lives and the value we can offer to other people’s lives make everyone’s life a living paradise. Some feel they have to die before reaching heaven but we can create heaven on Earth if we all work and flow with the Holy Spirit and perform our roles that we came to fulfill.
The music and lyrics on the CD is uplifting and the words and tune are memorable and I often find I’m encouraging myself by singing some of the songs to myself and stopping the mental chatter of what is wrong and what is not complete and opening myself to the value I contain and is needed in this world as my service to God. We all have value and this book helps the reader realize they are already on their path to find their value and service. We all have many opportunities that are open for the taking as soon as we focus and begin the journey of showing love.
Self love and appreciation is the beginning of the path to find God’s love because when we start realizing and appreciating ourselves and what we have to offer then we can then begin to understand and see the love that God has for us.
Our society has a history of making women second class citizens and even though we are slowly evolving sometimes those ‘old fashion sentiments’ are still passed down.
Christiane Northrup M.D. has a new book out for girls to let them know how special they really are and how to embrace their qualities as gifts and gives the message to celebrate being a girl and to appreciate the wonders of their body.
This book, Beautiful Girl, is beautifully illustrated by Aurelie Polanz and would be a wonderful book for any little girl to enjoy.
Through out the book the author emphasizes that each girl is perfect the way they are and how important it is to nurture their bodies and spirits. I particularly loved the illustration she uses in comparing a girl becoming a woman to the metamorphosis of a tadpole to a frog, caterpillar to a butterfly and like these creatures every little girl will change into the person they are meant to become.
Christiane Northrup reiterates to little girls the important message of taking care of their body and not letting anyone touch them in a way that would make them feel uncomfortable. She also introduces new messages of soothing reassurances of certainty of strengths each little girl has to help her with the things she will need to do in her life. Each little girl reading this book may find security in the fact that she need not feel insecure about becoming a well balanced woman and should feel free to ask other women they feel comfortable with about questions they may have about themselves.
This book is a wonderful gift for any little girl of any age and those developing into women to assure them they do have a place in this world to become the woman they would love to be yet does not diminish the role of males either as the author explains that they have their own special gifts to appreciate.
Neal Walsch writes an inspiring book that encourages, reassures and inspires anyone on a spiritual path.
The book begins by affirming that unusual events are occurring on this planet and you may find your life busier, challenging, and perplexing and may be asking if there is something you are doing wrong but he affirms
“You're doing nothing wrong”
Chapters 1 thru 10 deals more on the subject matter of universal cosmology and I think the points made in these chapters would be very comforting to anyone struggling with the what happens after death and how we as individuals are a part of the universe today and forever.
Our souls and fundamental essence of life continue even after death. We may differ in form but maintain our true essence we have evolved to in our life.
Our body, mind and soul are traveling companions on this amazing journey for those that have accepted the invitation to life.
The later chapters expand into observations and thoughts of the only things that matter and I’m sure most of us know it is not money and material possessions. The book suggests some simple yet effective prayers to keep on the path to living a life devoted to things that matter.
This book would be enjoyed and welcomed by anyone on a spiritual journey and have been called to read this book. I found the book to produce thought provoking ideas and kindled inspiration and new thoughts on my place in the collective body that makes up the universe and found the story of snowflakes a great analogy of how we as humans are just one piece in God’s life size jigsaw puzzle of the universe.
The book begins with the history of hypnosis and also debunks lots of myths that circulate about it. I in the past have deducted that anyone under hypnosis must be in a Zombie like state and will do the bidding of the hypnotist. Not so as no one under hypnosis will ever do anything he would not morally do if not hypnotized.
The fact is that you’re always in control—you can always end a hypnosis session whenever you choose simply by opening your eyes. I than began to understand hypnotism in a different light. You and I have no doubt seen those under hypnosis that has clucked like a chicken. Would they do that if not hypnotized and the answer is no. So why do they cluck like a chicken? The author answers that question in this manner:
"Let me provide an example: There are people who would really like to be funny, to be entertainers, to be the center of attention, but who are afraid of rejection. What if they fail? What if they aren’t funny? What if they have stage fright? You get the picture. This personality type provides the perfect subject for the stage hypnotist. For while these folks hide behind the safety net of the hypnotist that “makes” them do things, they’re able to perform in ways that they’ve always wanted to. Think about it this way: If the person volunteers to be a participant, isn’t he or she already predisposed to play the role?"
The book was easy to read and kept my attention. I found myself really gathering wonderful information through each chapter. An interesting fact I learned from the book was about the different stages of consciousness.
One stage is called Alpha consciousness. This level is one experienced in hypnosis. We are particularity prone to the acceptance of skillful suggestion in the alpha state.
An interesting fact is that average individual will enter alpha brain-wave levels within four minutes or less of being engaged by television.
My husband and I elected to not watch television about three years ago and I am now more convinced than ever that we made the right decision.
Another good decision I made was picking this book to read and it has broadened my perception and awareness of what I absorb through the power of suggestion.

Julie Daniluk, R.H.N. is the author of 'Meals That Heal inflammation' this inspiring and helpful book of eliminating inflammation that causes so many ailments that we have been told that the only help is through prescription drugs or that there is no cure.
In this book the author begins with her own story in the book explaining how she struggled with health problems until finding the key element was eating the right foods to eliminate inflammation which were causing the problems.
Inflammation in the body has been known to cause any thing from allergies, diabetes, skin disorders, heart disease, gingivitis, to irritable bowel syndrome. Eating healthy and eliminating certain things from your diet is the first step of taking control of any of these ailments and taking back control of your life. I found the book very interesting and eye-opening.
One of the things I found really interesting was a section that connected Alzheimer's with dental infection. The consequence of poor dental health establishes chronic inflammation in the brain and how treating chronic dental infections may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. Interesting information like this is all through out the book. Thankfully the information is not just given with out recourse to take to deal with it. There are recipes in this book which creates a MTHI plan (Meals That Heal Inflammation)
This book is very well written and connected to studies to prove the authors point. Being in the health care profession her book is based on medical knowledge that she has or she has researched through other people in the field.

What makes us healthy and what is the secret to living a healthy life? Caroline Myss takes on the question and if you think she is going to coddle any self pitying excuses you have for your reasons why your life is not going right, well then, you must not know Caroline Myss.
This is a great CD set and if you have ever wanted to attend a lecture but was never able to then this is the CD set for you.
I have read several of Caroline Myss books and I find her a really 'deep' author. I often have to high light and study sections of her books to grasp the idea she is presenting and reread her books to understand her messages to the fullest. This CD set will be no different and I will continue to listen to this set and no doubt will continually learn something new.
The underlying idea of this CD set is that for us to be truly healthy we must strive to understand ourselves and those forces surrounding us that influence our lives. Once we recognize that our power does not stem from money, sex, power and entitlement but our true power comes from our inner self (soul) then we are on a journey to a healthier life style.
The goal then is to trust the power we truly have by our inner guidance system to recognize the illusion the world has established and the attitudes it promotes for the easy way out. Power is choice in every aspect of our life.
In this 6 CD Set, Caroline Myss takes a frank look at our declining society consumed by entitlement and how each of us are responsible for its continued decline because of our nurturing of our excuses of not taking responsibility of our own characters, power of decisions, and our addictions stemming from our refusal to believe that our Inner guidance (soul) is always stronger than any force that confronts us.
Inner illumination is realizing our relationship with the world of matter and our stamina of our soul. Those on this journey then realize that it is not all about us but is a journey that we all travel together. Dismissing excuses from our lives empower us to know that we now always have options and decisions to make for our own lives. The ego, that we all posses are what blocks us from the truth by way of pride, fear, greed and the need for power. It is the ego that blocks us from truth and causes imbalances and illnesses. This CD is a spiritual journey to lean how to dismantle the walls we have constructed and put our trust back into our inner guidance that leads us back to a balanced life and health. There are so many thought-provoking aspects of this CD that it is impossible for me to capture it all in this review.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is the author of many books all dealing with aligning your thoughts to that of our higher source so we can be in sync with the holy energy and find the life of peace and prosperity of the things we desire as God meant us to be.
This book, ‘WISHES FULFILLED Mastering The Art of Manifesting‘, explores several incidents of the bible and other philosophers and teachers to create a solid path to get the reader to that spiritual journey.
Beginning with the concept we should have of ourselves, Dr. Dyer uses the incident in the bible where Moses met God in the desert as the burning bush. God reveals himself and several times throughout the bible by His/Her name of “I Am”.
In accordance to that, we too as those in His/Her image should also face life with the attitude of I Am. “I Am Fueled by God, I Am Happy, I Am Peace are just a few ways we should consider ourselves. Statements as I Am Tired, I Am A Failure, ect are in truth blaspheme to God. We after all can do all things through God so accepting anything less is cutting ourselves short of the mission we have here on Earth.
Focusing on how we are feeling, thinking and behaving are all parts of the key components to aligning ourselves to rightful thinking and finding our Higher Selves.
Dr. Dyer uses several examples of incidents in his own life and those of others to help the reader understand how to tap into the Love of God and emulate it.
Imagination and impacting the subconscious mind to stimulate the growth we want to see in our own life towards manifesting our desires that are in accordance to God’s desires are explored in this book.
Normally I devour any book I read by this author but this book was different. I read it at a slow pace and will no doubt read it several times again before loaning it to another.
The book was well written, inspiring and clearly defined with ideas and steps to take to master finding one’s higher self. For myself, I will need to study this book rather than merely re-read it to get the fullest benefit. I loved the examples given in the book and found it different from the ones previously written by this author and would recommend it to anyone seeking a stronger spiritual walk.
The book is written by Pamela Bruner, who has successfully used this technique to build a million dollar business in three years and by Jack Canfield who is best known for his co-authored book of the ‘Chicken Soup For The Soul’ series and his books and teachings on guiding others to success in life and business. The book also comes with a DVD that helps illustrates the Meridian Tapping techniques on portions of the body known as the energy meridians of acupuncture.
This technique is favored by some as it is felt that the process takes less time to eliminate negative thoughts and energies than other methods which take more time to eliminating walls built by limiting thoughts and beliefs accumulated in life.
The book is well laid out, interesting and backed up by examples of people’s experiences that have used this process. Tapping is very therapeutic and opens the mind to realizations of limiting believes normally accepted in the past. This realization then makes it possible to over come them and accept truer thoughts that would lead to a more positive and powerful approach to life.
I would recommend reading the book first before watching the DVD. My son and I watched the DVD first and were skeptical at first about the process. While reading the book I then was able to understand how this technique was created and the benefits that came because of them.
Unlike most books, Tapping Into Ultimate Success does not just act like a map that one needs to follow and then rely on time and their own energy to accomplish it. This book is a map, compass, and supplies the reader will need to get them from point A to point B in a shorter time span in order to overcome blocks in life that may be limiting a person to reach their ultimate potential.
Although some may label this book as weird I feel it offers valuable lessons to those on the path to finding their success in life and their business. I think it especially offers valuable methods to use to work through fears, negativity, and bad experiences of the past. This tapping process is being used successfully by those suffering from severe traumas and those afflicted with PTSD.

A Story of Forgiveness-Tales of Everyday Magic- My Greatest Teacher.
I am very fortunate to have an outstanding father. He passed away this month but I don’t think I will ever use the past tense of “had a father.” He will always be my father and the lessons he taught me will continue to guide me through this life even though he may not be physically visible to me to see it.
Many people did not have a father that was a positive influence to their life. Some I know have suffered greatly because of how they were treated by their fathers either physically or mentally.
Tales of Everyday Magic: My Greatest Teacher is a 45 minute movie based on the story of Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Dr. Dyer is a well-known author and inspiration to others in living life through positive intentions and in motivating people to live a life through the influence of God or Universal flow by practicing attributes of love, generosity and forgiveness.
Dr. Dyer did not have the benefit like I did of having a wonderful father to cherish and emulate. His father abandoned the family shortly after his birth and never supported the family financially. Due to the hardships that occurred to this abandonment his mother was forced to place her three sons in a foster care program until she could become financially stable and support them on her own.
Feelings of blame, hate and resentment grew as Dr. Dyer became older and he often blamed his father’s rejection for how he treated others and his outlook on life. Tales of Everyday Magic: My Greatest Teacher is an account of an occurrence of events which leads the main character to begin a journey of finding his father and ultimately finding the path of forgiveness.
I watched the movie and was moved by the struggle of the character in the movie, Dr. Ryan Kilgore, in his quest to find success in career, knowing his failures of commitment to his family and his search for a father he felt rejected him. The events which took place in the movie lead him to finding his father and accepting the realization and decision for forgiveness. The event changed his mind-set and life as it opened the door to his own abilities to give love and guidance to others. I loved the analogy, forgiveness and a snake bite, which was given in one of the scenes in which he spoke of meeting with a wise chief and learning the philosophy of a snake bite.
It is not snake bits that kill a human, it is the venom from the bite. Leaving the venom in the body to let it take its destructive course leads to death. Using the venom and turning it to medicine ultimately can save a life.
Forgiveness is not necessarily done for the person that wronged us but for ourselves so we can heal, learn from the event, and become the true spiritual individual we were born to become.
