You Can Trust Your Life DVD Set

Apr 12, 2013

I love Louise Hay! And if you see her video, You Can Trust Your Life, you'll see why. The 4 DVD set is a live taping of Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson talking to an audience during a Hay House Seminar. They are inspiring people that clearly care about others. It's visible in the way they comfort the people who ask questions, and in the advice the give. They clearly want people to overcome their limiting beliefs and heal themselves.

Hay House sent me a DVD set of You Can Trust Your Life by Cheryl Richards and Louise Hay for my honest review. I listened to it as I folded laundry, cleaned the house and cooked in an empty house, while the kids and my husband were away at sports. I felt as if I was at a weekend retreat. I had too much to do around the house to just sit with a notebook and blanket and watch the video like I wanted but I still enjoyed it quite a bit and plan to do just that if I ever feel I need some comforting words again.

Some of the topics they covered were mirror work, affirmations, tapping and creating a loving environment both at home and work. Louise Hay gives advice on how to greet your day and how to center yourself when you arrive home so that you intentionally create the life and experiences you want. I like that the DVDs are broken up into different topics. I've gone back to view disc 4 again to listen to the work related and forgiveness topics again.

It's great to have more than one person up their on stage because then it creates a dialog that we can eavesdrop into as an audience or viewer. I'm familiar with a lot of the concepts already from reading such books as Ekhart Tolle's The Power Of Now and The Secret. But still I find this very interesting because there is always something to learn when you listen to Loiuse Hay or there is something you already knew but need to remember.

I recommend these videos for someone going through a rough time and perhaps can't afford to take a weekend retreat. This DVD set is wonder to cuddle up and watch and be inspired by. It's also good for when you want to break your busyness cycle and recharge.

Intuitive Studies

Feb 06, 2013

I enjoyed reading Gordon Smith's latest book, Intuitive Studies A Complete Course In Mediumship because it took me into a whole new world I had never considered exploring before.

I have been meditating for several months now on a daily basis. In my journey to learn more about meditation, I also have come across different websites that warn about the dangers or startling revelations that can occur as a result of opening up to the spirit world when you are under certain states such as deep meditation.

I decided to read Intuitive Studies A Course In Mediumship in order to learn what to avoid so that I don't accidentally fall into some trance and inadvertently become a medium, like if that was even possible.

From the Intuitive Studies, I learned becoming a medium takes much patience and practice. I appreciate that Smith takes the readers step by step through each exercise, and walks them through being able to distinguish the calling card to ensure you are making the right contact. I thought this advice to readers is being responsible considering things that can happen when you open to the spirit world.

While reading Smith's book, I had two new insightful ideas for communicating with my subconscious that I want to write more about in a later posts. A good book will do that, fill your head with ideas.

Gordon Smith's new book Intuitive Studies A Complete Course In Mediumship provides a wealth of honest step by step guidance on how a person can begin to develop their mediumship abilities. After reading his book, I feel confident that if I wanted to pursue mediumship, which I still don't, I would be well informed enough to know how to pursue it.

Intuitive Studies A Complete Course In Mediumship was sent to me by Hay House for my honest review.

For the Sender

Dec 03, 2012

My latest read is Alex Woodward's For the Sender. It's a tender story about a musician, Alex Woodward who one day gets a surprise letter in the mail just as he's contemplating his professional music career and existence. That first letter is from a grateful fan, Emily, who lost her husband a few years back in the autumn. Emily writes to Alex, "So, every year around this time, when memories fill me, I write him a letter. I thought I'd share it with you, not so you'd write a song for he and I, but because I think your songs are gifts." Alex is deeply moved by the letter and decides to write a song as a way to give back. What follows is a series of letters and songs, not just from Emily but from other fans who also send their personal accounts of loss and renewal. Alex learns that he receives more from giving back to others than wallowing in his own thoughts and insecurities.

I enjoyed reading each of the letters that touched Alex's life, and getting a perspective of what it's like to be a musician and song writer. The songs are written and recorded in Alex's living room, often after a morning surf. Another sweet spot of the book was that Alex was not afraid to show his emotions over losing his dog, Kona. It was a refreshing change to the stereotypical range of emotions males are portrayed as having.

This little book is accompanied by a CD with the songs from the book.
