  • 365 Blessings to Heal Myself and the World
    Pierre Pradervand
    his book adds an ounce of love to your day!
    This is the third book of Pierre Pradervand’s that I have read, and as with the others, they are a great recipe to add more love into your life! Each day you can read a blessing for the various issues, like blessing teachers, raising world consciousness, overcoming alcoholism, being grateful, all kinds of things. It was great because I could just open it up and read what spoke to me that day. I also love the Native American blessings. Thank you for once again giving us the recipe to increase the love in our lives! ~ customer, Amazon

  • You Are Not Your Thoughts
    Frances Trussell
    This wonderful little book is so simple but so truthful--it really resonated with me, right from the very first page!

    I want to buy copies of this book for everyone I know because I truly believe almost everyone could benefit from the messages contained here.

    At its most basic, we have the power to be happy by choosing to live in the moment we are in, and choosing to not let our thoughts control us.

    The author guides us through exercises and a logical roadmap and discussion of basic concepts, but she shoots very straight. She doesn't sugar coat it; I felt very much like she was speaking directly to me and that she KNEW me. :-) I suspect, deep down, many of us are trapped in circular worrisome thinking--replaying the past, worrying about the future, missing out on what is happening RIGHT NOW. I know I am. But the author gives us tools to help us stop the madness and learn how to just BE. It sounds simple because it IS. Doesn't mean it's easy...but she puts the information into easily digestible bites, in easy to do steps...I felt lighter and happier just a few chapters in, and by the end, I felt as if something fundamentally MAJOR had changed. I have to keep working on it, but seriously--while this is not necessarily NEW information, this book is written in a very straightforward, appealing manner that feels like you can start right this second, right on this page, right NOW. And your life will change. Just start with the first page. ~ Brooke Hudson , NetGalley

  • SoulWorks
    Jane Bailey Bain
    Steve Jobs said, "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards."

    I was reminded of this quote as I read Soulworks. Jane points out that every life has a distinct theme and pattern going through it. You can't always see it as you're living it but looking back, everything starts making sense. But what if you could figure out yours now?

    This book is full of exercises and insights that help you identify the main theme of your life and how the choices you're making are helping you fulfil this purpose. The book helps you become more aware and figure out what steps to take next to go where you need to go. It's a must read for everyone interested in personal development. ~ Soul Works, NetGalley

  • Road to Power, The
    Barbara Berger
    These books are indeed a gift! Filled with positive and easy to understand advice which gets straight to the point. I liked that you can pick out chapters to read when you need help with certain topics.

    Barbara is an uplifting voice throughout and I felt compelled to make changes for the better. ~ Louise Tang, NetGalley

  • You Are Not Your Thoughts
    Frances Trussell
    Self help books usually scare me. But this one didn’t. I think the book was strong and filled with strong ideas on how to train your brain to be stronger, to have stronger concepts, and to help you avoid negative thoughts.

    This book is a great introduction on mindfulness and meditation and approaches the subject in a way that is attainable for any reader to take on the challenge. Another great idea would to be to utilize the Oak app to meditate after having read this book.

    This book isn’t long. It’s pretty short but still packs a detailed punch on the concept of mindfulness.

    I’m glad I discovered the book. While brief, it’s strong and provides a great opportunity for any reader to learn more. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to know more about mindfulness or meditation or wants a new perspective. ~ Meagan Loyd , https://meaganloydcollective.tumblr.com

  • SoulWorks
    Jane Bailey Bain
    This is a profound and practical book by an author who has applied her studies of psychology and anthropology to myths and stories. It addresses the deeper themes, passions and narratives of our lives – what she calls our soul story. It is about discovering and being who you are, designing your life path and developing an attitude of responsibility that includes the ability to respond. There are many useful exercises and practices to work with and a particularly pertinent list of 20 questions to go through, including what we feel most grateful for, when we last cried and what it was about and how we would change our lives if we knew we had one year to live. There is an exercise for formulating one’s personal values both in terms of principles and feelings, and another as an encounter with our future self. There is a helpful chapter about contact in relationships and another on finding and expressing one’s gift. Throughout, there is a sense of creative adventure and an encouragement towards spiritual awakening in answering the soul’s call. ~ Paradigm Explorer

  • Spiritual Beings or Economic Tools
    Peter Strother
    This book, as the title suggests, addresses the question of identity and its levels and hence the way we live. The author argues strongly for our identity as spiritual beings and our capacity to reconnect with the Source and in this way liberate ourselves from the enslavement implied by the capitalistica ttention economy. It does so in a series of chapters addressing birth, separation, the collective, addiction, confronting death, faith, empowerment and the spiritual life. Each chapter contains some reflections, illustrative parables bringing the themes to life, and a more contemplative section. He is surely right that many of us are cut off from the deeper aspects of ourselves, and he shows how we can open these up and escape the distractions and manipulations of the system, also spending time in silence. It is a powerful affirmation and reminder of the primacy of the spiritual rooted in mystical activism. ~ Paradigm Explorer

  • You Are Not Your Thoughts
    Frances Trussell
    This book was a happy surprise. I've read a lot of books on meditation and mindfulness, and often they are trite and too distant from real life. You Are Not Your Thoughts, however, is simple, both in its brevity and it's language. It feels like Trussell is just chatting with you, talking about things she's learned and wisdom she's gained. Definitely recommend this book to anyone new to mindfulness but would also recommend to anyone who wants a refresher. ~ Erin Sladen, NetGalley

    A great concise introduction to mindfulness and how to separate ourselves from our thoughts.

  • You Are Not Your Thoughts
    Frances Trussell

    The Author does not get into the health benefits in this short book but focuses on thoughts and how we get used to thinking about certain things repeatedly. She encourages readers to deal with or face the events in our lives and not to spend too much time thinking about them. ~ Debra Cohen, www,openbookpost.com

    Thoughts are things and we must be careful with them. Desiring to be proficient in mindset mastery, I have been scouring the bookstores for texts on the very topic of thoughts and mindfulness. Enter Frances!

    With detailed advice, tips, and instructions, this little book gave me the information I have been searching for.

    Highly recommend for readers who enjoyed The Power of the Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy and The Game of Life by Florence Scovel Shinn. ~ Erica Watkins, NetGalley
