by Louise Hay & Cheryl RichardsonYou Can Create an Exceptional LIfe

For countless people, the words of Louise Hay have served as a beacon, leading them out of the darkness of despair and into the light of a better life. Cheryl Richardson is one of the many individuals whom Louise has greatly influenced . . . before going on to become a best-selling author herself.

So what happens when these two combine their collective wisdom into one book?

The result is this lovely book. As Louise and Cheryl engage in a series of empowering and intimate conversations, you’ll feel as if you’re simultaneously having lunch with your best friends and also attending a master-class, put on by two leaders of the self-empowerment movement.

As they travel throughout North America and Europe together; Louise and Cheryl discuss a wide range of topics, including the importance of loving ourselves and our bodies; ageing consciously; bringing true prosperity and abundance to the world; manifesting positive relationships – both with family and friends and in the workplace; and facing death in a dignified and peaceful way.

These two amazing women are living proof that the spiritual principles they discuss in these pages really work. As you read, you’ll discover that you, too, have the ability to create an exceptional life!

When I picked this book up, I thought it may be about far away goals in life and how to meet them. Yet this book is so much closer to home! It is about what you can do in the here and now to create a life that is more engaged, more in keeping with who you are. Ultimately this book is about self-love and how to make small changes to create big differences in your life.

Lovely affirmations are added for healing, for special moments in the day but also for times when you are facing difficulties.

I sometimes encounter people who use affirmations and the law of attraction to start a blame game. If things go wrong in your life, you must have been thinking negatively. Thankfully this book is not about that at all. It is about being compassionate and loving towards yourself AND opening up to positive change.

by Marina Costelloe manifesting with crystals

The Complete Guide to Manifesting with Crystals shows you how to use crystals to create the life you deserve. Work with crystal energy to focus your intentions, manifest your goals, support your soul journey and attract abundance into your life. Relationships, health, well-being, career – all can be improved with crystal awareness. Crystals help you re-think who you are and where you want to be.

By using the crystal manifesting recipes contained in this book you can visualize and manifest your new reality and move forward with confidence in your life. Let crystals light your path clear!

For me this book was a joy to read. I have always been attracted to crystals, even as a child. This book combines the powerful energy of crystals with that of the Law of Attraction and the so-called ‘High Five’: positive feeling, positive thought, positive action, positive will and positive energy. It is a very practical book with a positive focus to help the support the reader in his or her personal ascension process. I especially loved all the little recipes, such as “A Crystal Recipe to Manifest Love” and “A Crystal Recipe to Manifest Health and Well-being”. I am looking forward to start trying them out!

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 Marie BruceThe Wiccan Temptress

This is a book full of fun and good humour, with a serious message underneath.  Marie Bruce has written a wonderful guide to help women discover (or rediscover) their true womanhood and sexuality, and how to deal with beginning and maintaining relationships, whether they be long-term or just a fling.  All aspects of being a temptress are covered here – clothes, grooming, home décor and interpersonal skills.  But beneath all the advice on how to become a sexy goddess, there is a fundamental point that a woman’s most important attribute is self-respect, and respect for others.  Throughout the book there are tips and techniques, as well as spells, blessings and magical recipes.  But this is not just a book for women – any men out there who wonder what makes women tick could do worse than peruse these pages!  Great fun.
