Goddesses Never Age

Mar 13, 2015

LisaAlaiana

Goddesses Never Age is about agelessness, or ageless living, which is what you experience when you engage life without fear that you’re going to fall—or fall apart. We are long overdue for a paradigm shift in what we believe about growing older.

Goddesses Never Age is set up to help you move out of the old paradigm and into the new. It’s about pointing out everything that can go right with your body and how to embody balance and health regardless of your state of health and well-being now—even if you already have a chronic condition.
I have been burned out about reading, it seemed like the same message over and over again. Different authors and titles but the same message, nothing new being presented. One day Dr. Christiane Northrup’s videos came to my attention and they had resonated so loudly within me as I felt like this is it, the missing link to get people to take notice. Then the book, Goddesses Never Age came into play the truth; “The real fountain of youth is the fountain of happiness, well-being, and connection with “the Divine Beloved” (or God—and you get to call it whatever you want, whether it’s God, Goddess, Source, your Higher Power, the Universe, All That Is, or any other name that speaks to your heart and spirit). The anti-aging prescription is to love life, try new things, and savor your experiences. ”
It is time we wake up and start to move in to the new and stop buying into the old. We do create our reality with our thoughts and actions and if we want to be healthier and happier it is up to us to make a difference and not anyone else. There is no magic pill or cure, we are the answer we are looking for.
The reality is that our bodies are not separate from our thoughts or emotions. They’re not separate from the planet Earth, our great mother, or from the sky and the stars. Understanding this will help you see why it’s so important to let go of the toxic beliefs and feelings that keep you from experiencing optimum health and well-being.
If you are unhappy with your life, having health problems or just feeling like there is something missing in your life then this book is for you. I can not put enough emphasis into how pertinent this book is to read if you want to physically, mentally or spiritually be healthier and happier. To say the least I loved this book!

Your Quantum Breakthrough Code

Jan 29, 2015

LisaAlaiana

You may be familiar with the name Sandra Anne Taylor as she is also the author of the energy oracle cards and guidebook which I had done a review on last year. Energy Oracle Card Review. Sandra was given the specific information and techniques she writes about in Your Quantum Breakthrough Code through a dream from spirit. Some may laugh at this or find it hard to believe but I do know first hand the reality of receiving information from spirit and dreams as this is exactly how I came to self publish Through The Eyes Of The Heart.
The Quantum Breakthrough Code is broken down into five sections to make it easier to prepare and use the coding techniques so that you can begin to change your reality to that in which you desire. The breakthrough process is to help one identify old believes and habits that keep them stuck. The techniques help stop the old way of thinking and to begin coding a new way of being so that one may lead a more prosperous and happy life.
It helps if you understand the concept of energy and how we are made up of this energy. The energy of our body, mind and spirit is our life force energy and flows through us and our chakras. Our chakras are our own personal power grids. There are seven breakthrough forces Sandra writes about in the book and each one corresponds with each of our seven chakras. Each chakra is related to organs of the body and certain human experiences. If one or more of your chakras becomes blocked it will affect your entire state of body, mind and spirit.
The techniques will learn about in the Quantum Breakthrough Code will help with:
1. Breaking bad habits
2. Emotions
3. Belief patterns about yourself
4. Toxic attachments to people, relationships or substances
5. Better understanding of external factors in your life
As you learn to rewire your actions to any specific issue, habit, thought or emotion with an alternative positive way you will finally be the true you!
I found this book to be very easy to read and would highly recommend it to anyone with the above issues or if you are trying to manifest a new reality this book is for you. You can purchase The Quantum Breakthrough Code at your favorite bookstore or any of the on-line book retailers such as Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Hay House Publishing.

The PlantPlus Diet Solution

Oct 03, 2014

LisaAlaiana

What’s true for us in terms of our personal health and the health of our economy is also true for our planet. It’s in crisis. I’m not an alarmist, but it’s ostrich-like to dispute the facts. Earth truly is at a tipping point. Global warming, increasing pollution, and agricultural practices that deplete the soil, poison the water, and kill our beneficial bacterial allies (and eventually us) are hard to ignore. What we do to the Earth, we do to ourselves. Our elders, who are succumbing to an epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease, are like canaries in the mine. So are the increased number of autistic children. Are you overweight? Diabetic? Depressed? Anxious? You’re a canary in the mine as well.
Something has gone terribly wrong with our national health and well-being, and it’s high time for the tide to turn. The Plant-Plus Diet—a scientific, metabolically personalized, whole-foods approach to health—is also a solution to some of these pressing problems. If we as consumers refuse to eat junk foods, genetically modified foods, pesticide-riddled produce, and products made from factory-farmed animals, we’ll be healthier and so will our precious children. Furthermore, eating the Plant-Plus way— personalized for your own unique metabolism—is empowering. It’s a step you can take to ensure that you, your children, your children’s children, and the Earth herself endure and prosper for the good of us all.
In this groundbreaking book, Joan will help you:
•Get up-to-date information on the nutrition revolution
•Make friends with the plants that feed your gut bacteria
•Lose the weight and keep it off
•Understand how diet changes your genes and how your genes determine your best diet
•Fill out a health symptom checklist and track the changes as your personalized PlantPlus Dietoptimizes your metabolism
•Know which tests to ask your doctor for and why
•Create a sleek and streamlined PlantPlus kitchen
•Make fabulous meals in minutes with simple recipes and meal plans
The PlantPlus Diet Solution book is so packed full of valuable information that you will keep you reading without the knowledge of how much time has passed by. We are constantly being bombarded with nutritional information from all angles as to what is good for us versus what is not so good for us and the opinion of such matters seems to change daily. The PlantPlus Diet Solution helps put all the pertinent information together to make sense out of it all so that we may understand and immediately put all the information to use to get on track to feeling healthier Don’t let the title fool you, this book is not meant solely for vegetarians. Definitely nutrition for the 21st century.
If you would like to purchase your own copy of The PlantPlus Diet Solution you may do so at your favorite bookstore or from any of the following on-line retailers.

Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., a Harvard-trained cell biologist, health psychologist, and New York Times best-selling author, believes that when you’ve got the right information, you can make powerful choices to change your life. She cuts through the thicket of confusing-and often downright wrong-advice on nutrition and gives you easy-to-digest, bite-sized servings of real scientific information so you can discover which foods your body needs to heal and thrive.
Since Joan wears two hats-as a psychologist and a cell biologist-you can trust her to psych out your inner saboteur, enabling you to make the changes you’ve been dreaming of. And as a busy woman who loves good food, she’ll teach you how to make simple, scrumptious, satisfying meals that you and your family will love whether you’re omnivores, vegans, or vegetarians.

The Big Book of Angel Tarot

Jul 04, 2014

LisaAlaiana

The Big Book of Angel Tarot is dedicated to the beloved Certified Angel Card Reader family and I appreciate that as I am one of them. I found this book to be a recap of the course that I did take to become a certified angel card reader so if there are others out there you will want to have a copy of this book on hand. The Big Book of Angel Tarot goes hand in hand with the Angel Tarot cards.

In The Big Book of Angel Tarot, best-selling authors Doreen Virtue andRadleigh Valentine follow-up their groundbreaking Angel Tarot Cards with the definitive guide to the mystical art of tarot. Here is a short introduction as to how the Angel Tarot cards came to be.
For decades, we have been fascinated with tarot. Long before we even knew one another, we’d been using this ancient divi- natory tool to get accurate and reliable answers for our clients. Independently of one another, we were both blending our com- munication with angels and the wisdom of tarot to provide heal- ing and insight to others. And while we both loved this amazing oracle, we were also uncomfortable with the traditional imagery. We were frustrated when our dear clients became worried by what they saw on the cards. So we made the decision to place phrases and guidewords on each card so that they could be used immediately out of the box without the need for study or research. We believe that God and the angels are always trying to guide us toward joy. Since tarot is merely a language for speaking to Heaven, every card in tarot is a message of love and is leading us to happiness. No matter what card we draw, it will always be love. It can’t be anything other than love, because the Divine only wants us to be happy, and tarot is the Divine speaking to us.
Our desire in creating the Angel Tarot Cards was to help you feel the love, compassion, and hope that tarot can bring into your life. We wanted to bring this centuries-old magical art out of the shadows and into the full view of Divine light!
Finally, it is our greatest desire that these cards will bring you immense blessings as you move along your spiritual path. We hope that you can now see tarot as it has always appeared to us: an angelic map leading the way to a joyous life. Love, Doreen and Radleigh

The Big Book of Angel Tarot is packed full of good information regarding Tarot, the old and the new. Doreen and Radleigh help one to understand the background of Tarot and how it came to be as well offering additional insight into each and every suit, number and element involving the cards. If you have been thinking of delving into the world of card reading this book makes it easy to understand. As I mentioned before, the book goes hand in hand with the Angel Tarot cards and is best used with them versus another type of deck, however the information about the suites, numbers, astrology, spreads and how to do readings can help one understand and do card readings with any deck of angel tarot cards.

Angel Dreams

Jun 05, 2014

LisaAlaiana

ANGEL DREAMS ~ Healing and Guidance from Your Dreams was co-written by Doreen and Melissa Virtue. In this book, Doreen Virtue and Melissa Virtue discuss where dreams come from, how to interpret them, what role angels play, and whom to call upon for guidance. You'll gain tools to enhance your dream time journeys, including techniques for creating your own dreams and improving your recall upon awakening. In addition, you'll learn to identify the different types of dreams by reading personal stories and interpretations that will help you decode your dream messages.

I personally found this book to very elementary, it seemed to me that Angel Dreams was put together in response to contractual agreements and deadlines. After having just read Letting Go The Pathway of Surrender I felt as if I was reading a book written for an adolescent. Angel Dreams may be a good choice for someone who has no knowledge of the subject and a good way to introduce them to the dream world. I was disappointed in the lack of subject matter.

Doreen and Melissa Virtue also collaborated on the ANGEL DREAMS ORACLE CARDS http://lisaleon.wordpress.com/2013/05/21/angel-dreams-oracle-cards/ . I highly recommend the Angel Dreams Oracle Cards for anyone who is looking to understand the meaning of their dreams.

Angel Dreams Oracle Cards

If you are a novice in dream intrepretation I would recommend this book as a starting point to understanding and interpreting. If you are a bit more advanced and would like to dig deeper I would recommend trying out the Angel Dreams Oracle Cards. The book and cards are available at your favorite bookstore or through any of the following on-line retailers.

Letting Go

May 28, 2014

LisaAlaiana

Dr. Hawkins was active to the very end. Just before his passing at home in Sedona, Arizona, on September 19, 2012, at the age of 85. he completed a video-recorded dialogue series and finished his twelfth book, Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender. Letting Go ~ The Pathway Of Surrender describes a simple and effective means by which to let go of the obstacles to enlightenment and how to become free of negativity.

One will definitely pick up on the fact that David R Hawkins was a doctor as this book is a bit technical at times however the technicalities are needed and a very important part of understanding the pathway of surrender. In this book,Dr.Hawkins offers a pathway to freedom that we long for but find difficult to attain. I have read many self-help titles and they are more vague compared to Dr.Hawkins book. Letting Go; The Pathway of Surrender provides the roadmap to a freer life for anyone who is willing to make the trip. All that is required is the willingness to let go of the attachments of your current life experiences.

This is not the type of book that you will want to rush through, slowly and methodically taking in each and every word is the way to go about absorbing all this wonderful information to help better yourself and that of the others around you. Each and every chapter is filled with a multitude of information to help one have a greater understanding of their emotional, physical and spiritual selves. As you read through this masterpiece you will discover things about yourself that you thought were not even aware of.

The mechanism of surrender that Dr. Hawkins describes can be done in the midst of everyday life. The book is equally useful for all dimensions of human life: physical health, creativity, financial success, emotional healing, vocational fulfillment, relationships, sexuality, and spiritual growth. It is an invaluable resource for all professionals who work in the areas of mental health, psychology, medicine, self-help, addiction recovery, and spiritual development.
To purchase your copy of LETTING GO ~ THE PATHWAY OF SURRENDER visit your favorite bookstore or any of the following on-line retailers

Angels of Abundance

May 18, 2014

LisaAlaiana

Abundance means a feeling of security and safety. Abundance has nothing to do with how much you have in the bank, or even how your finances are managed. Abundance is about feeling financially secure in your life and the ability to pay your bills. Abundance is not only about money and finances but having plenty of time, ideas, confidence, love, and every other positive condition you can imagine. Our Creator made everything abundant, and is constantly creating new forms of abundance. Abundance is so natural that you have to take extraordinary measures to prevent its flow! Abundance is our natural spiritual state of being, and we’re constantly surrounded by Divine beings who want to protect and nurture us, and help us achieve our potential.

I found the book Angels of Abundance to be full of light. Abundance is available for everyone and after reading this title you will agree too. There are many things we subconsciously do to sabbatage ourselves and all of this will be brought to light as you read Angels of Abundance. Much of this book is very inspirational even if you feel you are not trying to create more abundance in your life. Doreen and Grant Virtue offer some great insight, inspiration and motivation in Angels of Abundance throughout the entire book. Heaven has a few more messages for you to help make your life what you always thought it should be and those messages are awaiting you in this book.

Angel Astrology 101

Mar 26, 2014

LisaAlaiana

I am very familiar with astrology but this the first time I became aware of Angel Astrology better known as angelogy. Doreen Virtue has teamed up and co-authored with astrologist and Angel Therapist Yasmin Boland to combine both astrology and angelogy. I found this book very easy to understand, very informative and the illustrations are beautiful.

When reading about the archangels that are associated with us and our natal birth signs validated many experiences that I have had in the past. Each astrological sign has a guardian archangel to help us along the path of life. My guardian is Sandalphon, who is often called the “Angel of Music.” In fact, Archangel Sandalphon often delivers messages through songs heard in the mind or on the radio. He’s around at those times when you hear just the song you need to. I have had personal experiences in the past while visiting Sedona where music has mysteriously began to play on my iPod when it had been tucked away in my pocket and turned off. Here is one example of the songs that began to play while I was sitting in a quiet state on the top of a very beautiful mountain and vortex.

The presumed Father of Astrology was a man named Hermes Trismegistus, whom Doreen wrote about in her book Angel Medicine. Doreen’s research showed that Hermes was a great teacher and leader in Atlantis, and then in Egypt, following the great Flood. He is said to be the grandson of the first man, Adam, and is also credited with the expression “As above, so below,” which he inscribed on the famous Emerald Tablet as part of his Hermetic teachings. The phrase means: What happens up in the Heavens is reflected down here on Earth. If you bear in mind Trismegistus’s assertion that “we are all connected to all life everywhere,” it’s not such a big leap to think that we’re also connected to the planets. * Ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Indians, Arabians, and Greeks, as well as Kabbalists in the Judaic tradition, all had input into the development of astrology as we know it now. Along the way, our ancestors noticed patterns among the dispositions of people according to their time, date, and place of birth. These observations also became the basis for modern natal astrology.

Just as everyone has an astrological birth chart, so do we all have assigned guardian angels. These are personal angels who are with you prior to birth, all throughout your life, and in Heaven after your physical passing. Guardian angels aren’t departed relatives; they are egoless celestial beings who are enacting God’s will of peace through everyone. Your guardian angels provide you with continuous love, support, and guidance. They also do their best to protect you, provided that you notice and follow their guidance in the form of warning thoughts, gut feelings, and signs. In addition to personal guardian angels, the archangels also provide guidance and protection. Archangels are large, powerful angels who oversee guardian angels. Each archangel has a specialty. For example, Archangel Michael offers protection and courage, Raphael administers healing, Gabriel provides nurturing and messages, Uriel shines light, and so forth. All of Heaven respects the free will of humans, so angels and archangels will never push their guidance upon you. Rather, they will wait until you pray to God for help, or ask for assistance. Only then are angels and archangels allowed to intervene. Fortunately, it doesn’t matter how you ask for Heavenly help—whether through formal prayer, affirmations, a fervent plea, a letter, or visualization.
astrologyphoto2

All of the astrological signs have issues to deal with. We incarnate as a particular sign so we can face them. Here is a quick overview (you will have to purchase the book to get the full details!)of the Archangels associated with the astrological signs.

ARIES AND ARCHANGEL ARIEL
Archangel Ariel is also known as the “Angelic Ambassador of Divine Magic and Miraculous Manifestation.” She reminds you that anything is possible if you approach life with the innocence of a child.
TAURUS AND ARCHANGEL CHAMUEL
Archangel Chamuel reminds us that everything we seek is already inside us. No matter what your sign, if you’re having trouble in a relationship or a friendship, Chamuel is a great archangel to turn to for help.
GEMINI AND ARCHANGEL ZADKIEL
Zadkiel is about forgiveness that comes from the heart; while Gemini is associated with the intellect, the mind, and a talkative conversation style. Archangel Zadkiel can help you shift your focus from the negative to the positive.
CANCER AND ARCHANGEL GABRIEL
The Archangel Gabriel/Cancer pairing is a very warm and comforting combination. If you have any Cancerian friends, you’ll recognize how nurturing they are. Archangel Gabriel will help you find the answers to all your questions about how to best look out for others.
LEO AND ARCHANGEL RAZIEL
Archangel Raziel has a rainbow-colored aura that beautifully complements the sign of Leo, guided by the Sun. As the wizard and metaphysician of the archangels, Raziel has the power to heal.
VIRGO AND ARCHANGEL METATRON
Archangel Metatron uses an energy tool that is shaped from all the Platonic solids, called a Merkabah (or “Metatron’s Cube”), for healing and clearing away lower energies. For this reason, he works perfectly in tandem with Virgo—the sign associated so strongly with healing (conventional or alternative) and service to others.
LIBRA AND ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL
Archangel Jophiel is the “Angel of Beauty,” so she’s the perfect match for Libra—the sign guided by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Wherever you have Libra in your chart is where you can appreciate beauty, where you can hold beautiful thoughts, and where you can beautify your life. Jophiel helps us restore balance in our thoughts and in our living and working environments.
SCORPIO AND ARCHANGEL JEREMIEL
Archangel Jeremiel, whose specialties complement those on the Scorpio path. Jeremiel is one of the seven core archangels. His main role is to help newly crossed-over souls review their lives. Scorpios and Jeremiel plunge fearlessly into areas that the average person doesn’t want to acknowledge. They are truly fearless!
SAGITTARIUS AND ARCHANGEL RAGUEL
For Sagittarius, life is a game. And for Archangel Raguel, life is a party, because he’s the most sociable of all the archangels. His name means “Friend of God,” and his focus is on peace and harmony with everyone in the world.
CAPRICORN AND ARCHANGEL AZRAEL
Archangel Azrael gently heals grief-stricken hearts. Capricorns tend to have lives where a lot of karma is being balanced. So they may find interactions with others tough because they’re dealing with people who hurt them or whom they hurt in previous lives. The karmic test is whether Capricorns can forgive and release old pain and anguish. Archangel Azrael is very adept at healing the heart in those who have lost someone or something.
AQUARIUS AND ARCHANGEL URIEL
Aquarians are famous for being brilliant thinkers and the inventors of astrology. All that time they spend in their heads often leads to inspired ideas and inventions. That’s why the two energies of Uriel and Aquarius go so well together.
PISCES AND ARCHANGEL SANDALPHON
Pisces is the sign of the spiritual seeker, and Sandalphon is a master at helping people find inner peace. The two go hand in hand.

Eating in the Light

Jan 12, 2014

LisaAlaiana

I must admit that the very first paragraph made me feel angry,I thought it was totally out of line as I felt it was a bad judgment upon others. This is the quote that I am referring to:
” If one is trying to practice meditation and is still eating meat, he would be like a man closing his ears and shouting loudly, and then asserting that he heard nothing.”

Becoming a vegan or vegetarian is a choice and there are many choices one can make to enhance their spirituality, there is no right or only way to enhance spirituality. I have changed my eating habits at various time to include not eating meat, and it was to enhance my spirituality. I have made a conscious choice to stop eating pork and red meat and this choice made me feel much better and I seemed to have more mental clarity. There are many types of vegetarians which I was not aware of however Eating in the Light gives a full diagram and explanation of the many different types so that if you are considering making some changes in your eating habits this diagram may help.

Some parts of this book made me angry, sad and even sick to my stomach but the cold hard facts stated throughout this book are very important for all to know and understand so that we may start to be the change we wish to see. Did you know that environmentally, the livestock population consumes enough grain and soy to feed over 5 times the human population? This fact alone should want to make all of us to stop eating meat! To make a choice to stop eating meat is not so much about spirituality as it is about helping to feed all the starving people in the world. Health is another reason one may want to consider becoming a vegetarian.

I think Eating in the Light is a very interesting book and it brings to light the importance of eating healthy and foods full of life force energy. If you are considering changing your eating habits, looking to become healthier for the coming years, or to enhance your spirituality then I would recommend you read this book.

The Numerology Guidebook

Dec 18, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Michelle Buchanan is a speaker, teacher, and writer who has studied numerology for more than 20 years. She was formerly the spiritual counselor for Woman’s Day magazine (New Zealand), as well as the resident numerologist for Television New Zealand’s Good Morning. Michelle provides personal readings, workshops, and seminars to clients all over the world. Michelle has released both the Numerology Guidebook and the Numerology Guidance Cards so that one may utilize both the book and the cards to make the most of the guidance available through ancient teachings of numerology. With a clear understanding of numerology one can change their life for the better as the blueprint for destiny is unvailed.

Numerology is the ancient science of numbers, with each number contributing to a unique vibration to the story of your life. The valuable information revealed through numerology can uncover your destiny and life purpose and the life lessons you’ll face along the way of life. The science of numerology dates back thousands of years to the ancient civilizations of Atlantis, Babylon, China, Egypt, India and Greece. There are two types of numerology systems.; Western (modern) numerology is the most popular and was created by Pythagoras, the Greek mystic and mathematician more than 2,500 years ago and the Chaldean system of numerology, developed by the Chaldeans of ancient Babylon. Both systems of numerology are based on the premise that we are timeless souls who have lived, and will continue to live many lives for the purpose of wisdom and growth.

The numerology system used in the book that the cards are based upon uses the Western numerology system to help you uncover the pre chosen blueprint of your life using the numbers corresponding to your date of birth, birth-certificate name, and the name you currently use today. One of the great things of using the numerology system is that it focuses on two main areas; personality profiling and forecasting. This system will help you to determine your personality strengths and weaknesses, life lessons, destiny and purpose, but you will also uncover your future potential, the environment around you, and the direction in which your life is leading you.

NUMEROLOGY GUIDANCE USING THE NUMEROLOGY GUIDANCE CARDS
Numerology We were all born with the ability to access divine inner guidance to get answers and direction at any given time; however, there are times when we may question its accuracy. The Numerology Guidance Cards are the tool of divination, providing confirmation and clarity to any areas of our lives that may be blocked or confusing. When you are in need of answers and directions, these cards bridge the gap between your inner wisdom and the universal wisdom of all that is.

As with any deck of angel, tarot or guidance cards it is vital to take the time to connect with your cards, blend your energy and bless them as you set the intention of that in which you choose to utilize them. The numerology guidance cards can also be used with other card decks, such as angel or tarot cards. The photo to the right is of a reading using both the Numerology Guidance cards and the Angel Tarot cards. You can set your own type of reading to do with the numerology cards, as there is no right or wrong way to do it. The most popular readings are a one card reading, three card reading or multi-deck/multi-card reading. With this particular deck of Numerology Guidance cards if one of the cards should appear upside down,it is emphasizing a point, trying to get your attention so that you pay an extra mind to this particular area. While shuffling or dealing your cards, should one or two cards happen to fall from the deck, these cards have a special meaning to your reading or inquiry, simply place these cards to the side and include them in your reading.

As you harmonize with the energy flow of your numbers, you can navigate your way through life with greater understanding and ease. With the newfound insight and wisdom received from the numerology guidance cards or understanding of your numbers you are one step ahead of the game of life. If you would like more information on The Numerology Guidebook, The Numerology Cards or to purchase you own copy so that you may get started with understanding the vibration you carry through life visit any of the websites below .

Assertiveness For Earth Angels

Oct 31, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Do people take advantage of your niceness? In this groundbreaking book, Doreen Virtue teaches Earth Angels—extremely sweet people who care more about others’ happiness than their own—how to maintain their inner peace and loving nature while at the same time holding boundaries. You’ll discover how to overcome fears about saying no, and how to ask for what you want from those around you and from the universe.

Assertiveness for Earth Angels is for anyone who wants to learn the art of speaking up in relationships and in their activism about issues related to the world. Whether you need more assertiveness with your family, on the job, or in your healing work, you’ll appreciate Doreen’s gentle-but-firm approach to negotiating your earthly needs in heavenly ways!

It is my opinion that the majority of us here on earth are earth angels and can use a little advice on how to say “No”, as there is a difference between being too nice and being loving. There are a few definite signs as pointed out by Doreen how one can tell they are in deed an earth angel. If you can relate to any of the following then you too are an Earth Angel and can benefit by the words of wisdom offered in ASSERTIVENESS FOR EARTH ANGELS.
Not very competitive, want everyone to win and be happy
Feel like an outsider and sometimes struggle with fitting in
Tend to take on other people’s troubles. You may even encounter situations where strangers will approach you and tell you their troubles.
Struggle with your weight. Earth angels carry extra weight to shield themselves.
Very sensitive
Truth be told, you like plants and/or animals better than people!

The book goes into great detail as to our purpose as earth angels and how we can assert ourselves so that we are not taken advantage of but offers great tips on to protect ourselves energetically using such techniques as, Shielding, Grounding, Clearing, and Angel Lights.
Life is all about lessons learned, part of our life purpose is learning how to love but in learning how to love we must also learn to have healthy boundaries with others. Loving someone is much different from enabling them!

How To Heal A Grieving Heart

Oct 24, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Many of us have had the experience of losing someone and the pain associated with a broken heart. HOW OT HEAL A GRIEVING HEART was written by Doreen Virtue and James Van Praagh as a way of reaching their hands out to walk beside you. They offer guidance and prayer that will comfort you in times of grief. One does not need to have experienced death to feel comfort in what this book has to offer, HOW TO HEAL A GRIEVING HEART touches on many of life’s lessons and spiritual teachings. The beautifully illustrated book is very appealing to the eye with many inspirational stories to help you understand that you are never truly alone, spirit is with us always. HOW TO HEAL A GRIEVING HEART is a book which can be read numerous times, intuitively select a page and you may find it is exactly that in which you need to hear at that given moment. It is a joy looking at the beautiful photographs of butterflies throughout the book. There is a significance to the book being filled with the blessed image of the butterfly.
Butterflies are spiritual messengers and in many traditions the butterfly is known as a symbol of the soul or soul world. Angels often communicate with us through butterflies. When a butterfly appears in your midst, it could be your guardian angel or spirit guide sending you a signal. It is difficult to ignore a butterfly’s presence, so consider it an important communication. Departed loved ones can also speak to us through butterflies. Many people report seeing butterflies shortly after a loved one’s death. Some see the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection, while others consider it to be the essence of the deceased’s soul. Another meaning of the butterfly is the symbol of moving through life, great transformations such as renewal, rebirth and death which can be seen as a transformation of new beginnings.

HOW TO HEAL A GRIEVING HEART full-color gift-style book is a great companion to the Talking to Heaven Mediumship Cards

Love Has Forgotten No One

Sep 29, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Gary teaches many lessons in this book and with a sense of humor on the side. There are a lot of references to the book, A Course in Miracles and if one is not familiar with this book and its teachings you may be a bit baffled. As I stand at the crossroads of my spirituality, realizing that the more I become aware of the more confused I am, Gary hit home with many of life’s lessons as he offers a different perspective of viewing the way we see life and how we think it should be. There is one particular paragraph spoken by PURSAH, one of the Ascended Masters Gary communicates with that resonated with me very loudly and I am still pondering the words in my head as possibly the missing link on my journey. Here is the empowering paragraph from LOVE Has Forgotten No One that has given me a new perspective on life.

People often focus on the fact that life is an illusion, which is not the thing you want to be focusing on. That’s because if it’s true that as you see them you will see yourself, and it is true, then if you go through life seeing people and the world as an illusion, then you will eventually think of yourself in your own unconscious mind as an illusion. You will feel empty and meaningless, which will leave you depressed. Remember your unconscious mind will translate whatever you think about others to be the message about you. That’s because even though you’re not aware of it, your unconscious mind knows everything, including the fact that there’s just one of you that thinks about others is really a message from you, to you about you. And that is how your unconscious mind will think of it. So you definitely don’t want to think of people as illusions or that’s what you’ll think you are too.

The reality is that LOVE is the only answer, and it has not forgotten anyone. We all have free will and choices to make and if we choose love there can be no mistake in this choice. There are many books out there with the same message but it is our choice to pick and read which one resonates with us and whose words will make a difference in our lives. We may think we are all on different paths but the truth is we are all heading in the same direction, it is just that we have made different choices on how we are going to get there. Gary has shared many lessons in his newest title that gave me a whole new perspective at looking at life. If you have been reading and reading looking for answers and feeling like you have been reading the same old story over and over; I would highly suggest reading Gary’s new book, LOVE Has Forgotten No One as it really hasn’t left anyone behind. Love is the answer to life and Gary offers a few more perspectives so that you may actually see and believe this fact.

Choices and Illusions

Sep 24, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Whether you are interested in the science of how your mind operates or learning how others are and have been controlling your thoughts you may want to check out this newest title, Choices and Illusions by Eldon Taylor. Reading Choices and Illusions – How Did I Get Where I Am, and How Do I Get Where I Want to Be? is a real eye opener as Eldon exposes the illusions most of us live by. You may find it a bit disturbing once you realize the manipulation you have undergone through our government and marketers. I would call Choices and Illusions a self-awareness book that will help you regain the power of your mind to create the reality you have always wanted. Also included with this book is an original Unlimited Personal Power CD, subliminal messages that when listened to help us to empower and become our best selves. Eldon is the inventor of the patented InnerTalk technology used in the CD included with the book.

Many of us think we are in control of our thoughts but in reality we are not. Eldon shows how we have been manipulated in so many ways that most of our thoughts are not even our own original thoughts. Can you answer the question of when was your last original thought? Whose thoughts are you thinking? I personally had to think about it for a few moments and then I did remember my last original thoughts. I did a little babble about my last original thoughts if you care to peek and weigh in on them; My Personal Experience The fact that we have had and are having our sub conscious programmed by subliminal forces through various avenues of media and government is a bit disturbing however Eldon Taylor does give us some guidance as to how we can change our subconscious information so that we may be more consistent with our genuine selves. I have always believed that our thoughts have energy and that we can create our own reality. Choices and Illusions helps us to regain the full power of our beliefs so that we most definitely can create our reality. Most of us have been taught to accept certain things in life that may and likely do limit our real potential. It takes a lot of courage to create real changes in our life. If we are under the influence of another’s thoughts then this change can be even more challenging.

The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel

Jul 30, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Archangel Gabriel is the famous messenger angel from the Christmas story of Luke. In this compelling book, Doreen Virtue offers more information on the history and characteristics of Gabriel, to increase your knowledge of and connection with this remarkable angel. Gabriel is still with us, helping people be messenger angels—including teachers, writers, musicians, and artists—and helping parents conceive, adopt, and raise their children. Gabriel along with Michael are the only two archangels mentioned in the canonical Bible, only Gabriel has conversation and encounters with people. In all sacred books featuring Gabriel, this angel is busily interacting with others and delivering guidance. You’ll read true stories of people who were miraculously aided by Gabriel, and learn how you too can receive assistance from your angels.

It can be challenging to distinguish between the voice of the true divine and our egos,but as with anything it takes time, patience and faith in oneself. Many have angelic visits during their dreams as our souls are open to spiritual contact. You will know when this is a real visit versus a normal dream as you will remember every detail as where a dream will fade away. The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel is a book to offer hope, let one know they are not alone and all you must do is ask if you are seeking answers or help. Our angels are always with us, it is just that sometime we need to quiet our minds and pay attention to the signs.

This book is not a book that you will read once and place upon your book shelve to forget about; you may find yourself reading various sections over again to receive the message of hope and inspiration. I found the front cover to be very engaging, I loved the colors chosen for this cover. As of late I have been drawn to the colors used on the cover of this book as they are very similar to the colors used on Doreen’s deck of Life Purpose Oracle cards; a very angelic quality indeed. The Miracles of Archangel Gabriel is a hard back book,richly illustrated with equally impressive photos throughout. I think this book would make a nice gift, a great addition to one’s decor; a small coffee table book to place out for decoration and to share with others, very pleasing to the eye.

Jun 19, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Feng Shui Simply is not all about rearranging furniture and it will change your life from the inside out.

In Feng Shui Simply, Cheryl Grace digs deep into the principles of feng shui to present an exciting new view of this age-old concept and shows that feng shui isn’t just about rearranging your furniture or painting your walls; it goes much deeper. She opens your eyes to how feng shui can be used to balance the energy of every part of your life-both in your external and internal environments. Grace shows that bringing your focus to both of these worlds is a powerful way to design the life you’re meant to live.

If your life is flowing in the direction you want and all is perfect then chances are you may be bored reading this book but if there is any aspect of your life that you would like to change then Feng Shui Simply will provide you a way to understand the problem or the obstacle standing between you and your dreams. Feng Shui Simply will not only provide you an understanding of the obstacles in your life; it will point you to a solution. I thought that I had always understood the energetic principle of Feng Shui but after reading this book it really did open my eyes to see many things differently. I personally realized that I had way too much mental cluster in my life! I will be incorporating the 5 Element Principle into my Aura Imaging work as this gave me a whole new understanding and I now feel that I will better be able to help my clients become more balanced.

I highly recommend Feng Shui Simply to change your life from the inside out.

Solomon Speaks on Reconnecting Your Life

Jun 03, 2013

LisaAlaiana

An interesting combination of authors; a chiropractor and screen writer. Solomon Speaks on Reconnecting Your Life is a book is full of messages from two different entities by the names of Aaron and Solomon who spoke through Frederick Ponzlov, these messages are collectively written as the voice of Solomon. Normally it is not a good idea to follow channelled messages as there are many that are not from a good source and can be misleading however I did resonate with the messages throughout this book and feel that the messages conveyed are from a good source. My advice to readers is that if a message resonates with you it is your truth, when you listen to your heart and not your mind all is exactly as it needs to be. We all have the answers we are looking for and all the answers lie within our hearts. Reading Solomon Speaks may be a good tool to help guide one to open their hearts so that they may find the answer they are looking for.

Life here on this physical plane is a continual evolution and we are all here to learn. One of Solomon's messages is that the path you are on is taking you somewhere special, and it will open your heart in a grand way; trust the process and the journey. I wholeheartedly agree as this message as I had received a very similar message from our beloved Maria which inspired my book, Through The Eyes Of The Heart. We are all part of a grander plan and the sooner we learn and get to the finish line the better and reading Solomon Speaks may be what one needs to fast track them to the truth that lies within their hearts.

The Radical Practice of Loving Everyone

May 21, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Being the animal lover that I am I knew I would enjoy reading, Loving Everyone but I had no idea I would have tears in my eyes at the Prologue. This title is a unique way of looking into the soul of one very special standard poodle by the name of Mollie. As Josh Billings, an American humorist once said, “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself” and of course I have always said that “I love animals more than humans”. It has been scientifically proven that if one owns a pet that their life expectancy increases and their blood pressure decreases. The stories of Mollie told by Michael in Loving Everyone are from the heart and one can not help but feel the love.

As an owner of three dogs I can relate to the tales of Mollie; good and bad but even if you are not a dog owner I think you will find that these stories will make your heart smile. This would be a great book to give someone who is a bit cynical to help them to learn to see through the eyes of the heart. Enlightenment is for all and Loving Everyone is just one approach to reach that enlightenment through the eyes of a four-legged friend.

Affectionately known as “The Kindness Guy,” Michael J. Chase is one of today’s most powerful voices for creating a kinder world. In 2007, following a life-changing epiphany, Michael ended an award-winning photography career to found The Kindness Center. After gaining extensive media attention for his 24 hours of kindness event, he quickly became a sought-after speaker and workshop leader throughout the world. Whether presenting in a classroom, boardroom, or on stage in front of thousands, his message of hope impacts countless lives each year.

The following review is solely based on my opinion, I have received this book free from Hay House Publishing for the sole purpose of review.

Reveal

May 06, 2013

LisaAlaiana

Harvard-trained theologian Meggan Watterson marched out of her church at age ten. With little-girl clarity, she knew something tremendously crucial was missing...the voices of women. Watterson became a theologian and a pilgrim to the divine feminine to find the missing stories and images of women's spiritual voices. She knew women's voices had never been silenced, just buried. But what she truly sought was her own spiritual voice inside her—the one veiled beneath years of self-doubt. At a sacred site of the Black Madonna in Europe, Watterson had a revelation that changed her. Rather than transcending the body, denying or ignoring it, being spiritual for her meant accepting her body as sacred. Only then, Watterson realized could she hear the voice of unfaltering love inside her—the voice of her soul. With passion, humor, and brutal honesty, Watterson draws on ancient stories and lesser-known texts of the divine feminine, like The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, making them modern and accessible to reveal the spiritual process she went through. She suggests that being spiritual is simply about stripping down to the truth of who we really are.

A sacred manual for getting spiritually naked is a manual to empower women everywhere, filled with first hand stories of the authors experiences in life that I feel all women can relate to. The most important truth that has been withheld from us in this lifetime is that we all deserve to be loved, we are love and there is no seeking love outside of ourselves as we are exactly what we are looking for. Reveal will open ones eyes as to how through out history religion has kept us all suppressed especially women. This book is another way of helping us to wake up to the truth or maybe wake up to the lies that we have been fed for centuries. As Meggan takes us on a journey with her travels and tales it could of been anyone of us as I think you will find a part in it all where you can relate.

Ladies it is time we stand up and be proud of ourselves. Life will always ask you to choose, so choose love and not fear. We no longer need to hide, we need to be who we know we are deep within our souls. We are wonderful,strong, beautiful women and we need to REVEAL our true selves, speak from the heart with no regrets.

Meggan Watterson is the founder of REVEAL, an organization that spiritually empowers women to connect to the love within them, reclaim their bodies as sacred, and become soul-led agents of change in the world. She facilitates The REDLADIES- a women's spirituality group in NYC where women come together to encourage each other to find, hear, and to follow the courageous and audacious voice of their soul. (Some break bread together, REDLADIES break dark chocolate. Smile.) She has her Maters of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School and a Masters of Divinity from Columbia University. Her work has been featured in media outlets such as The New York Times, Women’s Radio, Feminist.com, Feministing.com and StyleSubstanceSoul.com.
