The Power of Giving: How Giving Back Enriches Us All by Harvey McKinnon & Azim Jamal

The Power of Giving is strongly endorsed by Jack Canfield, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Seth Godin, and many more prominent authors and inspirational individuals. And it has been printed in nine countries, and translated into seven languages.

When you buy The Power of Giving, you’ll discover: 1) How your simple act of giving can improve your health, your relationships, your company’s bottom line, your happiness and more.
2) How to find and cultivate your own personal giving potential. 3) How to give most effectively by choosing the right times, places, causes and people to give to.

The Power of Giving is a book about you and your potential. It’s really a book about how each of us lives our life, and how you can improve yours. The surprise is that you can improve every part of your own life by giving. Does this sound strange to you? It may, but research shows that giving is one of the best things we can do for ourselves, as well as others. The Power of Giving shows you how best to give.

Virtually all successful – and certainly all happy people – have discovered the secrets of giving. The Power of Giving will show you what you already know in your heart – that giving is a key part of every person’s life. You’ll see how to give better, where to give, and how you can achieve the greatest impact.

You Can Heal Your Life (Gift Edition) by Louise Hay (available as an audio course)

Louise Hay is known as the “self help” guru. She pioneered the self help movement and shared with us gems of wisdom for self healing through her many books and audio programs. Please check out her not to be missed, You Can Heal Your Life, the movie. Here’s a review from Amazon.com:

“If you haven’t seen Hay House’s Lifestyles series of gorgeous gift books, there is no better way to acquaint yourself than with publisher/author Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life. A bestseller for many years, You Can Heal Your Life has been republished with bright, beautiful illustrations in full, living color and exquisite typography–each and every page is a work of art by artist Joan Perrin Falquet. The timeless message of the book is that we are each responsible for our own reality and “dis-ease.” Hay believes we make ourselves ill by having thoughts of self-hatred. She includes a directory of ailments and emotional causes for each with a corresponding affirmation to help overcome the illness. For example, the probable cause of multiple sclerosis is “mental hardness, hard-heartedness, iron will, and inflexibility.” The healing “thought pattern” would be: “By choosing loving, joyous thoughts, I created a loving joyous world. I am safe and free.” –P. Randall Cohan


A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose (Oprah’s Book Club, Selection 61), Eckhart Tolle (also available in audio)“Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are—which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are—and learn to live and breathe freely.”

“This work, A New Earth, supersedes all of Tolle’s previous writings. It has better and clearer explanations and is replete with examples which are packed with a great density of meaning. That means you will inevitably “unpack” more and more meaning from these ideas each time you read them. Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, but, to me this book is an enduring treasure. I hope millions read it and take away from it whatever they can carry.

ith the set, and while the packaging is compact and lovely, the CDs tend to fall out easily. But for Tolle’s followers who can’t make it to Findhorn, this is the next best thing. Listeners eager to learn more about Tolle’s teaching will glean much. Simultaneous release with the New World Library hardcover and DVD set. (Jan.)

Loving What Is: Four Questions That Can Change Your Life, Byron Katie (also available in audio)”Remember the phrase “question authority”? Loving What Is is a workbook on questioning authority–but in this case, what is in question is the authority of our own fundamental beliefs about our relationships.

Known simply as “The Work,” Byron Katie’s methods are clean and straightforward. The basis is a series of four questions addressed to your own lists of written assumptions. Whether you’re angry with your boss, frustrated with your teen’s behavior, or appalled at the state of the world’s environment, Katie suggests you write down your most honest thoughts on the matter, and then begin the examination. Starting with, “Is it true?” and continuing with explorations of “Who would you be without that thought?” this method allows you to get through unhelpful preconceptions and find peace.

An integral part of the process is “turning the thought around,” and at first this can seem like you’re simply blaming yourself for everything. Push a little harder, and you’ll find a very responsible acceptance of reality, beyond questions of fault and blame.

The book is filled with examples of folks applying The Work to a variety of life situations, and reading other’s examples gets the idea across pretty clearly; chances are you’ll find your own frustrations echoed on the pages a few times. Many chapters are divided into specific topics, such as couples, money, addictions, and self-judgments, with one chapter devoted to exploring the method with children.

Questioning your own authority is never an easy process, but it seems well worth the potential rewards–stress-free choices, peace, and affection for those closest to you.” ~ Jill Lightner

Mending The Past And Healing The Future with Soul Retrieval by Alberto Villolodo, Ph.D. “This fascinating book by psychologist and medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., explains the practices for healing outside of ordinary time and space. It shows how to enter the timeless now to heal events that occurred in the past, and to correct the course of destiny. Dr. Villoldo discusses ways in which you can heal yourself and your loved ones by employing intention through practices used by shamans of the Americas—which, until now, have been inaccessible to most of the world. The shamans of old called this journeying.

In this book, you’ll discover that you have a four-chambered heart in the same way you have a four-chambered soul. In the first chamber, you store away the memory of a wound that derailed your destiny. In the second, you keep the limiting beliefs and soul contracts that you entered into at the time of your loss. In the third, you recover the grace and trust that will make you whole again; and in the fourth, you remember the calling and mission that you choose to unfold in this lifetime.

“While everyone has a future,” Villoldo says, “only certain people have a destiny.” This book shows you how to find and manifest yours.”

The Healing Power of Water by Dr. Masaru Emoto

Emoto theorizes that since water has the ability to receive a wide range of frequencies, it can also reflect the universe in this manner. He found that water from clear springs and water exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns, while polluted water and water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors. Emoto believes that since people are 70 percent water, and the Earth is 70 percent water, we can heal our planet and ourselves by consciously expressing love and goodwill.”

“Half of the earth is water; our body is three-quarters water. Water represents the interface between the 4th dimension in which we live and the 5th dimensional sphere of our soul. Many studies have shown subtle effects of healers upon hydrogen bonding and infrared absorption of water. None of these scientific studies can compare with the beauty and clear messages shown by Dr. Emoto’s elegant work. The impact of thought and beauty has never before been demonstrated so well.” ~ C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D. Founding President, American Holistic Medical Association President, Holos University Graduate Seminary Author of 295 publications, including Sacred Healing
