by Caroline MyssDefy Gravity

This is a groundbreaking new book from Caroline Myss that will challenge some well-established beliefs about healing. We have long been taught that to understand that which needs to be healed, we must explore the reasons why it has happened in the first place. Caroline turns all that on its head and suggests that this approach – asking “why?” – will actually impede healing and that we cannot actually reason with these events. Instead she presents five new truths:
– that we cannot reason with illness or God
– that healing comes through connecting with our purpose
– that we must have the courage to face our crises
– that we must rely on the power of our grace
– and that we must learn to think in a more mystical way.

I absolutely loved this book and it reflected many of the thoughts that I’d been having recently. Yes, it will challenge some or many of your beliefs and ideas, but it will free you up to deal with crises in a more constructive way. Highly recommended.

The Shiftby Dr Wayne W Dyer

In his new book The Shift, Wayne Dyer puts into book form the principles he set out in the film of the same name. In four chapters he describes the processes we go through in order to take our lives from ‘Ambition’ to ‘Meaning’. We go from our emergence from Spirit, through a life in which ego is central, to a point at which true life begins. As we move through these stages, we go beyond the demands of the ego and ultimately find a deeper purpose in life.

This is a relatively short book, but no less valuable for that. As always, Dr Dyer strips away unnecessary complications and leaves us with simple but powerful techniques for making key changes in our lives.

I would recommend this book  highly and since it uses scenes from the film to illustrate the main points, I would also recommend getting hold of the DVD to enrich your understanding of the book.

 by Dr Silvia HartmannMagic, Spells & Potions

This is a bright, fresh, joyful and practical guide to magic, perfect for the 21st Century. When I first picked this book up I expected it to be full of spells, a recipe book for witches if you like. I could not have been more wrong. Starfields introduces the ways of using magic in connection with the guides and angels we may already be working with in a fun and constructive way. You are given practical steps in which to gather the tools needed for any particular ritual. It is made very clear how using magic in everyday life you are able to help yourself and others with this very powerful tool.

I found this book both informative and inspirational from the first to the last page. If your idea of magic is a toothless, warty hag sitting with a cauldron conjuring up all manner of things and using questionable ingredients to do it, think again. I have learnt from reading this book that magic is a very powerful accessory to have at your disposal – it is fun, and can give very valuable help to those who ask for it.

If you are looking for a way of solving problems in your life, or the life of someone you know, get this book and follow the steps Starfields gives you. You never know it may just work.

by Dr John F. DemartiniCount Your Blessings

This book is transformational, and I don’t say this lightly as I’ve been a fan of John F Demartini for several years (seeing him in Conscious Cinema talks). John’s book is a beautifully crafted balance of ancient wisdom, real life stories and practical processes on how to align with Gratitude and Love.

I run a Gratitude Group in Sussex so thought this would be an ideal book to learn from and I was not disappointed! John’s work is well researched – he has studied hundreds of modalities over a 30 year period. This is paired with a generous dose of unconditional love and empathy, John truly wants to guide the reader to feel gratitude for everything and everyone in your life. Is this achievable? With some effort, yes! I examined so many areas of my own life and realised with some big revelations, both painful and amazing -that by shifting perceptions, taking responsibility and choosing to feel love and gratitude in my heart (not head) how rewarding this process can be.

This is a brilliant, heart opening process – highly recommended if you want to heal the past and create a happy, healthy and abundant life.
