Directing Your Destiny

Jun 08, 2013

BookLover

Directing Your Destiny: How to Become the Writer, Producer, and Director of Your Dreams by Jennifer Grace is a wonderful book on manifestation. She uses her history as an actress to show us how to manifest our dreams. We learn to write the movie, produce it, and direct it.

The book takes us through four weeks to learn how to create our dreams. The book contains practices for us to do to implement into our lives to help us manifest what we want. During the first week we learn to focus and figure out what our dreams are. During the second week we learn to get rid of negative thought patterns and believe in our dreams. During the third week we learn to feel our dreams and finally to surrender them to a higher power.

This book is simply amazing. I could not put it down. I read it through completely once to get an overview and am now going back and taking it week by week.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to manifest their dreams in a new, enjoyable, and fun way. I loved this book and cannot wait to read more from Jennifer Grace. I will be going back to this book again and again.

I acknowledge that I received this book free of charge from Hay House in exchange for my unbiased opinion of the book.

Mind Over Medicine

Jun 03, 2013

BookLover

Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, M.D. is a book that can revolutionize the medical community. It is for healers and patients alike. This book teaches us to listen to our Inner Pilot Light and write our own prescription for optimal health.

I loved the fact that Lissa Rankin recommended using not just one's doctor but also life coaches and non-traditional healers, and to bring them all to a 'round table' where the patient is the final decision maker following their own Inner Pilot Light in the decisions they make.

As one interested in healing and helping others I found this book to be very inspiring and uplifting in it's message. I also liked the fact that she backed up what she was saying with real examples from medical journals (the end notes are found in the back with where the studies are found). I thin that everyone should read this boo not only to help possibly cure themselves of diseases they already have but also to prevent diseases from happening in the first place. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants better overall mind, body, and spirit health. This book is amazing.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to change their life for the better and live stress free.

I personally used tapping to relieve neck pain and also to begin to help overcome my fear of public speaking. Tapping is so simple and yet gives profound and lasting results.

The Honeymoon Effect

Apr 29, 2013

BookLover

The Honeymoon Effect: the Science of Creating Heaven on Earth by Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. is about creating loving relationships and having that harmonious feeling we get when we first fall in love all the time, not just in the beginning.

According to Bruce Lipton in order to do this we have to be willing to change ourselves by realizing there is a problem, figuring out the pattern that is emerging from our childhood and changing our subconscious mind. We also have to realize that things take time to change so we must be patient and be willing to change our subconscious again and again. We also must be willing to talk to the other person about how we feel.

This book also shows us how to recognize both positive and negative vibes. It shows the impact that can happen when we do not listen to our intuition in an example given by Bruce about a time he did not listen to his own vibes.

This book was an inspiration to me to show me how to create better relationships with my family and others. I am now starting to create the "honeymoon effect" in my own life. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to create more loving relationships in their own life.

Being of Power

Apr 23, 2013

BookLover

Being of Power: The 9 Practices to Ignite an Empowered Life by Baron Baptiste is an amazing book. I was completely engulfed inn this book from beginning to end. I could not put it down.

The nine practices in this book have not only inspired me but by putting them into practice have truly empowered me. I feel lighter, more vibrant, and truly free since putting these practices into my life.

One of my favorite practices is called "Give It Up To Get Empty" in which we learn a new way to let go of our limiting perceptions and "create space for grace" as Baron Baptiste puts it.

Another of the practices I loved in this book was about speaking straight from the heart instead of from what we know. This practice shows us how to truly connect to other people, which many of us no longer do. When using all of the practices in this book I believe that we can all truly learn to live of power.

This book is truly a must read for anyone and everyone who wants to live more authentically and from their own power. This book is a must for any spiritual seeker's library. I know it will be one I read again and again.

I received this book free of charge from Hay House in exchange for my unbiased and honest review of the book.

Your Hidden Symmetry

Apr 13, 2013

BookLover

Your Hidden Symmetry: How Your Birth Date Reveals the Plan for Your Life by Jean Haner is a book which uses an ancient system called "Nine Star Ki" to help you find the plan for your life. The Nine Star Key system is based upon thousands of years of observation of the natural world and its cycles. Your Hidden Symmetry: How Your Birth Date Reveals the Plan for Your Life shows you how these cycles effect your life both in the past and future.

I found the descriptions of my "true nature" to be specifically true for myself. I also found the descriptions of the particular year that I am in to be true. This book continued to amaze me as I looked up my numbers and those of others. The Nine Star Ki system rang true every time.

The affirmations in the back of the book by Louise Hay for my "True Nature" were especially helpful to me and helped me to grow and discover more of myself.

I would recommend the book Your Hidden Symmetry: How Your Birth Date Reveals the Plan for Your Life to anyone who is interested in discovering their inner nature and true calling in life. This book is a must.

All Is Well

Apr 05, 2013

BookLover

All Is Well: Heal Your Body with Medicine, Affirmations, and Intuition By Louise L. Hay and Mona Lisa Schulz, M.D. PhD. is a book that blends the concepts of intuition and western medicine. This book combines the best of using affirmations, intuition, and scientific medicine to help us create a life of health and wellness.

The different chapters in this book are broken up by the "seven emotional centers" similar to the seven chakras in the body that many people are familiar with, and explains the correlation between them and the body's overall health.

At the beginning of the book there is a self-assessment quiz and once you take it you learn which areas or "emotional centers" of the body are in need of healing. By learning which areas are in need of healing you can then go to that section of the book specifically or read the entire book from front to back.

This is the first book I have read by Louise Hay and I found it to be informative and helpful in learning to use modern science, affirmations, and intuition together to heal ourselves. I will defiantly be reading more of her books. I especially enjoyed the real life examples in each chapter which showed me how healing in this way is possible.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in combining the use of traditional and nontraditional medicine to heal themselves both physically and emotionally.

IS: Your Authentic Spirituality Unleashed

Mar 31, 2013

BookLover

IS: Your Authentic Spirituality Unleashed by Faith Freed is a book that explains common spiritual principles, such as being present, synchronicity, and that we are all connected, in a fun, entertaining, and easy to understand way.

Through the analogy of a Holy Disco Ball we learn about God referred to as IS or Infinite Source by Faith Freed, our Higher Self referred to as Inspired Self, our physical body or Incarnate Self, and finally nature referred to as Incarnate Source. We learn to connect to all these things with authenticity and what feels true for us and not through any one religion. In the book we are encouraged to take what we feel is true for us and leave the rest.

We learn that by being present right now it will help us to appreciate what is right in front of us.

The book also has 'Shout-Outs' to Infinite Source which are prayers to say so that we are helped to learn the lesson in that chapter. There are invitations at the end of each chapter which give us suggestions on how to integrate the lesson into our lives. As Faith Freed explains it at the end of each chapter are anchors which, "reinforce the big ideas by offering key phrases to refer back to at a glance."

I would recommend this book to those who want a new fun way to look at classical spiritual concepts.

ThetaHealing Rhythm for Finding Your Perfect Weight

Mar 25, 2013

BookLover

ThetaHealing Rhythm for Finding Your Perfect Weight by Vianna Stibal teaches you to change long held negative beliefs that are stopping you from losing weight through what she calls, "belief work." While belief work is touched upon in this book I believe that reading her others books, ThetaHealing and Advanced ThetaHealing, would better help the reader to understand belief work than this book alone.

It also teaches one to lose weight through blessing one's food from the time it is a seed to the time that you eat it. This book also teaches you to bless your supplements and how to use energy work to find out which supplements are right for you. We also learn about different supplements to take and how they help us to lose weight.

One of my favorite parts of the book, ThetaHealing Rhythm for Finding Your Perfect Weight was when the author, Vianna Stibal, shows us how we can lose weight by making our brain think we are exercising while listening to music, even if we aren't.

Overall, the book was a good read and I would recommend it to others. However, if you have not read Vianna's other books on ThetaHealing I would recommend reading those first that you have a better overall understanding of the system.

I received this book free of charge from Hay House in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion of the book.

Loveability

Mar 17, 2013

BookLover

Loveability by Robert Holden is a book which invites us back to our essence, our true self, which is love. It teaches that through true self-love we can achieve unconditional love of self, others, and the world around us.

Loveability teaches that there are only two realities and emotions: one is love and the other is fear. To live in love is to be truly happy and realize the essential truth that we are love. Our true essence is love and "the fall from grace," as Robert Holden puts it, is when we forget that we are loveable. Forgetting that we are loveable is the cause of all our suffering and all the problems of the world according to the book Loveability.

This book shows us that all our judgments of ourselves and others are the ego's blocks to love. It shows us that all love, whether it be for friends, family, or pets is the same love. Loveability shows that the more we truly love ourselves the more we can love others and the world around us.

The book also shows us that forgiveness for "not believing you are loveable," will lead you back to love and show us we are loveable again.

I would recommend this book to everyone in order to find true self love and to remind them that, "you are loveable."

E Squared

Mar 11, 2013

BookLover

Many books have been written about how thoughts shape our reality and that the world around us is influenced by them. E-squared by Pam Grout is one of the most insightful books on the subject I have read. It shows through experiments done by the reader how to attract abundance into one's life and that we do control how we see the world. E-squared challenges us to nine experiments in order to realize that our internal thoughts create our external reality. In the experiments we learn everything from there being a force of infinite possibilities to the fact that, as Pam Grout states, "The universe is limitless, abundant, and strangely accommodating."

E-Squared is funny, light, and hard to put down. In fact I liked this book so much I did the first three experiments at once. I got immediate results. Let's say I saw a lot of cars and butterflies.

If you have doubts I encourage you to put your doubts aside, just for the 48 hours it takes to do the experiments (at least most of them) and see if they really do work. You will be amazed. From the beginning to the end of this book you will be astounded at the results and how in a scientific manner we are shown our thoughts affect our everyday reality.
