by Tsultrim AllioneFeeding Your Demons

Are you struggling with any of the following: depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, a difficult relationship, fear, self-hatred, addiction or anger? Renowned Buddhist leader Tsultrim Allione explains that the harder we fight our demons, the stronger they become. So, if we want to liberate ourselves from the fight for once and for all, we must reverse our approach and nurture our demons. This powerful five-step practice forms a strategy for transforming negative emotions, relationships, fears, illnesses and self-defeating patterns to help you cope with the inner enemies that undermine your best intentions. By recognising your demons, giving them form and feeding them, you can free yourself from the battle. Enriched with detailed examples to show how others have transformed their demons, Feeding your Demons will give you remarkable new insight into the forces that threaten to defeat you, along with the tools to achieve inner peace.

When I first heard about Feeding your Demons, I did not feel inclined to read or buy it. After all, as a Lightworker, I would rather read about Angels, Masters and Beings of Light. But when my mother went to a workshop by Tsultrim about working with inner demons, I was amazed by the transformation in her, so I started reading the book. I realised it really is a wonderful book to read and truly inspirational. As a therapist I so very often see people fighting against their problems, fighting against their fears, all the while increasing the problem by doing so. What you resist persists. Instead of fighting your inner demons, this book teaches you an ancient Buddhist practice to embrace your inner demons and by doing so transform them into protectors and allies.

This book is a must-read, but more importantly a must-try, because the real power in this book is not in the reading, but in practising feeding your own inner demons.

by Anthony PeakeThe Daemon, A guide to your extraordinary secret self

Anthony Peake has written a fascinating, mind expanding book to follow his first title ‘Is there Life After Death?: The Extraordinary Science of What Happens When We Die’.  Peake argues that all conscious beings consist of not one, but two completely separate consciousnesses; the day-to-day persona and a higher self he terms as ‘The Daemon’, a being who seemly has knowledge beyond normal human constraints.  In layman’s terms, he takes us through the science of neurology, investigating human consciousness, deja-vu, migraine, epilepsy and schizophrenia, on to historical sources such as Socrates, Gnosis and Joan of Arc. Dreams and precognitions are discussed and explored. We are given many examples of The Daemon as a protector, muse and guide.  Whether you agree with Peake’s theory or not, this is an engrossing book, well written and expertly researched. The Author presents his theory with enthusiasm and verve.
