    Book Review: 'Stillness on Shaking Ground,' one woman's journey of self-discovery through Nepal
    By Steve Larson
    For the Deseret News
    Published: April 4, 2017 6:00 p.m.

    "Stillness on Shaking Ground" is a new book by Utah author Carol A. Wilson, told from the perspective of a careful observer. Wilson explains in an opening note that this book is based on a true story, but the names have been changed out of respect for those who have become characters in her book.

    The story starts with Olivia telling her boyfriend, Chris, about her planned trip to Tibet. Rather than celebrating this announcement, Chris is concerned about her safety and forbids her to go. Not wanting to miss an opportunity of a lifetime, Olivia plans her journey anyway, one she hopes will help her find a new version of herself while leaving her failing relationship behind.

    While in Tibet, Olivia visits base camp on Mount Everest to place a prayer flag there with the names of family and friends written on them. She also takes time to honor the memory of those killed in an avalanche in October 2014.

    During a return visit to Nepal, Olivia experiences two major earthquakes and numerous aftershocks. This changes her mission from one of self-exploration to one of service to those impacted by the earthquakes. Olivia now sees a new version of Nepal as the people struggle to survive after facing major destruction.

    While visiting some of the Nepal's sacred sites, Wilson shows through Olivia's experiences some of the tenets of the Buddhist religion. She does a wonderful job of describing the beauty of the people and the landscape of this hidden part of the world. While the book can be hard to follow at times because of the author's style of writing, it does tell a fascinating story.

    Comment on this story
    "Stillness on Shaking Ground" contains some descriptions of adult relationships, but does not contain any graphic sexual details or sexual innuendos. It also does not contain any profanity or violence.

  • Colour Psychology Today
    June McLeod
    Colour Psychology Today reveals new colour psychology information that comes from the author’s pioneering research and studies on colour. The book discloses unique knowledge on how colour psychology impacts on the business world and the individual, borne out of the author’s extensive work as a colour consultant and trainer that spans more than thirty years. Colour Psychology Today is unlike any other colour psychology book available. It is a ‘must have’ for colour enthusiasts, branding experts, marketeers, advertising execs, graphic designers, and anyone who would like to expand and develop the application of colour in their field of work.

    There is so much information packed within these pages. From the building blocks about colour through to practical exercises and for use as an individual through to using as a brand, there is something for everyone no matter what your interest is.

    There is a simple exercise which makes very clear the wavelengths and frequencies. You’ll find out the meanings of each colour and the effect it has. You’ll learn the facts and find out the experiments/case studies June Mcleod has undertaken. As an intuitive, the author has collaborated with a professional musician to create the very first coloured music CD. I have a favourite chakra guided meditation and would love to compare this with The Colours of Soul CD. The music takes you through the colour spectrum, key by key and is healing for a myriad of needs.

    The author shares things such as which colours to use in different settings and for different emotions, the best colours to get noticed at meetings, linguistic colour associations, corporate branding, colour personalities and your soul number colour correlation. If you’re leading a group session June Mcleod gives tips and exercises.

    I liked June Mcleod’s down to earth and no nonsense approach to language which makes her knowledge accessible to all. I’ve learnt new things (ie how to use colour for divination) and am fascinated by the water exercise! With the sun out a couple of times I’ve even managed to do one of the exercises. I felt a marked difference between before and after.

    Colour Psychology Today is a recommended read from me. ~ Shaz Goodwin, jerasjamboree.co.uk

    Based on experiences from the author's personal journey through self-transformation, this is an easy to follow guide for anyone who feels ready to make profound shifts in mental habits and spiritual processes.

Seven powers are identified: Nature, Creativity, Endurance, Love, Communication, Focus and Connection. Each has its own chapter, broken down into specific topics for study and meditation. A great book to dip into when you need to just focus on a single thought such as optimism or sharing. ~ Cyngus Review, Spring 2017, Issue 1

    Entertaining Possibilities

    Eoin Scolard’s new book, The Possibility Exists, is about one man’s search for freedom. This quest is something to which we can all relate. After several life changing experiences, Eoin began asking himself some serious questions about the way he was living his life. The book is his answer to those questions. His answers are illuminating for us all.

    http://www.irishnews.com/lifestyle/2017/02/13/news/lettuce-talk-about-the-price-of-greens-and-banishing-negative-thoughts-925624/

    EOIN Scolard reckons we are all like onions. Not a bad thing: onions are good for you and tobacco onions delicious and, as Eoin says, they have many layers.

    We have to peel away to get to the heart of living and Eoin gives us great advice and guidance on how to do this. Negative thoughts are always out there and they want to dominate. If you allow them room they'll surely take up residence and become hardwired into your everyday thinking. Eoin has a way of coping and he charts his tried and tested theories in his book The Possibility Exists… One Man's Search For Freedom.

    He confronts these thoughts by visualisation: “I sit down for a minute take a few deep breaths and sense into the lower half of my body. Then I say to myself – I am like an oak tree.”

    Now he paints a picture in his mind based on the tree; in a field, maybe a forest, sun shining and it's warm. Then he takes his particular problem and gives it a name of a cartoon character. “Let's try Mickey Mouse.” So he writes the offending words on Mickey's T-shirt – ‘I'm not good enough', for instance. Basically your problem is transferred to an external source, you acknowledge the problem, you tell it – “I see you, I know you want my attention but sorry, not today.” Then you go back to concentrate on the oak tree, sense the depth of the earth, the warmth of the sun, the openness of the sky and the vastness of the universe.

    As he concentrates on this he notices that Mickey Mouse is getting uncomfortable. He's getting less and less attention, he's getting more and more annoyed.

    “Putting your focus elsewhere starves the thought of its life energy.” Poor Mickey, you see him and the problem loosing their energy. The unwanted thought gets lighter and lighter and eventually floats up and away.

    There's much more to this way of approaching life but basically it's a case of taking your negative attitudes and experiences by the scruff of the neck and forbidding them to take root.

    Eoin also talks about ‘non-specific unhappiness' – not depression but life getting you down. When he was suffering stress he wasn't prepared to take the doctor's antidepressants; instead he went on a quest to get an answer and ended up in Dublin with a fully qualified doctor who is also a homeopath. They talked, and talked. She was honestly interested in him and he responded.

    “An hour and twenty minutes later I left this wonderful woman feeling much lighter in myself.” He shares what he learned and it's valuable information.

    The author, who lives in Co Down with his partner Jenny Grainger, also discusses life as it is today putting forward the thesis that the world we live in doesn't want us to be free to make our own decisions.

    “It doesn't want empowered people who refuse to be victims. It actually needs you to be a slave to the consumer culture... this fear has spawned greed, anxiety, defensiveness and control. This paradigm needs to crack and crumble and be rebuilt. How? One person at a time.”

    Just think back to the fear we felt over the Millennium Bug, mad cow disease, salt, now sugar, and the rest – these negatives just keep coming, like Big Brother in Orwell's 1984, trying to manipulate and suppress the masses.

    Eoin has had plenty of negatives to deal with: a bad crash resulting in a near-death experience, relationship problems, single parenthood and success and failure in the world of work. No wonder he had a stress-related breakdown. But all these only made him determined to rebuild and share his experiences, often in a comical way, always in a compulsive way.

    His take on ‘fear' being your friend is also fascinating. Turning fear into energy by making a commitment to do something psychologically or emotionally frightening once a week until your courage muscle gets strong and your self-esteem grows. Start with something small you've been avoiding like making a phone call you've been putting off and building up from there.

    Be prepared to be challenged by this book; be prepared to fill in the little exams he sets and keep The Possibility Exists... as a manual to a better life.

    :: The Possibility Exists... One Man's Search For Freedom is published by O Books, available on Amazon, Kindle and in bookshops. ~ Anne Hailes, Irish News

    This is a fascinating tale of one couple's journey to a deeper spiritual experience through intimacy. This is a great book for "believers" and skeptics alike. For those familiar with the subject matter, the heartfelt, personal nature of the narrative gives it a fresh, autobiographical immediacy. Skeptics will be interested to learn how widespread the concept is. Far from being a modern invention of "the New Age," the idea of connecting to the Sacred through the "profane" experience of human sexuality is extremely common. The author guides readers through many of these traditions in detail, all in a relatable, first-person tale that is beautifully, unapologetically personal. I highly recommend it!

  • Diving for Pearls
    Maggie Kay
    Anyone searching for love will find this book delicious and comforting. Plump up your cushions.
    This is one to curl up with and hits the spot like a hot chocolate with swirly cream.

    "Diving for Pearls" really is the ultimate guide to finding love. Maggie should know because she's
    had to work it out for herself and it's been an incredible journey, a very wise woman indeed. Make
    no mistake, this book is not just for those looking for love. It also serves as an inspirational and
    helpful guide for absolutely everyone. Filled with every kind of spiritual seeking and leaps of faith,
    Maggie takes us on a winding road of self discovery and inner wisdom.

    Most of us have experienced emotional damage at some time in our lives. It can be depressing
    and depleting, especially if what we're seeking is recognition in love. Love not only from others but
    more importantly, love for ourselves. It's refreshing to learn through Maggie's inspirational teaching
    that with the expert guidance she offers us, finding love is more possible than we can imagine. We
    just need to know how to manage and realise it. She encourages us to dive deep and find our
    pearls. The first step is the only one we need, our willingness to take that chance, and the rest will
    follow.

    In this gem of a book, we dunk our biscuit into a blissful pool of rediscovery, one of warmth,
    understanding, hearts and healing. It leaves us feeling calm and rejuvenated, happy in anticipation
    of our future. Suddenly we believe it really is possible to find that deeper love opening up another
    door, one of acknowledgement, strength and relief. It also helps us to understand others and how
    we can enrich our relationships generally.

    Being a great believer in saying "yes" to life and all the love it has to give, I found this book honest
    and refreshing. I am constantly amazed at the strength of people all around me who perform their
    lives on a stage where a lot of us only choose to see what is immediately visible in front of ones
    eyes instead of what actually lives behind them. In this book, Maggie has chosen to share what
    lives behind her own eyes so that we may all find the courage to move forward and progress in
    troubled times.

    I was given this book as a gift and I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to improve
    their lives and what wise woman wouldn't want to do that?

    In short, it's a great read.
    Totally satisfying and delicious.
    Time to dive in everyone. ~ Patti Savage, Psychic Link Magazine

    What a beautifully written and told adventure of coming into ones power and a deeper understanding of life's unfolding.
    The spiritual path Mariah takes us on is filled with transparency, passion, courage and authenticity. It is bold and daring facing the many challenges that are filled with opportunities of enormous potential...this is how growth happens....the only way to get this intimacy we all seek, want and need is via this honest forthright looking within and without.
    So it seems the sacred becomes profane and the profane becomes sacred.....it is all one thing?....
    This is a deep revealing read worthy of our attention and time. ~ Linda Wylie, Amazon
