Books that have changed the way I am

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 5:53 am



“Anatomy of the Spirit” by Caroline Myss
Encoded within your body, teaches Dr. Myss, is an energy system linking you directly to the world's great spiritual traditions. Through it you have direct access to the divine energy that seamlessly connects all life. In Anatomy of the Spirit, Dr. Myss offers a stunning picture of the human body's hidden energetic structures, while revealing its precise spiritual code and relationship to the sacred energy of creation. Our most revered wisdom traditions, including Judaism, Christianity, and Hinduism, hold in common essential teachings about seven specific levels of spiritual development, the stages of power in life.
These seven great truths also grace the human body as an energetic system, a spiritual compass pointing the way to the divine. By honoring this inborn code, you can learn to see the symbolic blocks within your energy
centers and their correlations with your health, relationships, and spiritual development. Richly
interwoven with research, examples, and self-diagnostic guidelines, Anatomy of the Spirit will take you to the heart of the spiritual life and beyond.

"Ask and It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:00 am



"Ask and It Is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks
I'll be honest -- I don't know what to think of the claim that Esther Hicks is channelling non-physical entities. I initially resisted buying this book because I am cautious around such claims of supernatural inspiration. But I respect Wayne Dyer and other great thinkers who praised this book, so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad that I did.
This is one of the most powerful books on manifesting your dreams that I've ever read. Every paragraph contains deep truths that just feel intuitively right. This book is especially effective in showing how our emotions are the key to understanding whether we are on the road to success or failure in manifesting our desires. The exercises are both fun and deeply practical. I particularly like the exercises involving the "Magical Creation Box" and "The Prosperity Game."
They make you feel young again -- your imagination is activated and everything suddenly feels possible. I don't know whether the origin of this book is supernatural, nor do I care. The message is true and the exercises work. Try it for yourself. It will change your life.

"Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:07 am


"Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell
Blink is about the first two seconds of looking--the decisive glance that knows in an instant. Gladwell, the best-selling author of The Tipping Point, campaigns for snap judgments and mind reading with a gift for translating research into splendid storytelling.

Building his case with scenes from a marriage, heart attack triage, speed dating, choking on the golf course, selling cars, and military maneuvers, he persuades readers to think small and focus on the meaning of "thin slices" of behavior. The key is to rely on our "adaptive unconscious"--a 24/7 mental valet--that provides us with instant and sophisticated information to warn of danger, read a stranger, or react to a new idea.

"Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:15 am


"Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch
Neale Donald Walsch isn't claiming to be the Messiah of a new religion, just a frustrated man who sat down one day with pen in his hand and some tough questions in his heart. As he wrote his questions to God, he realized that God was answering them... directly... through Walsch's pen. The result, far from the apocalyptic predictions or cultic eccentricities you might expect, turns out to be matter-fact, in-your-face wisdom on how to get by in life while remaining true to yourself and your spirituality.

"The Celestine Prophecy" by James Redfield

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:24 am


"The Celestine Prophecy" by James Redfield
You have never read a book like this before."The Celestine
Prophecy" contains secrets that are currently changing our world.
Drawing on the ancient wisdom found in a Peruvian manuscript, it
tells you how to make connections between the events happening
in your own life right now...and lets you see what is going to
happen to you in the years to come. The story it tells is a gripping
one of adventure and discovery, but it is also a guidebook that has
the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where
you are in life...and to direct your steps with a new energy and
optimism as you head into tomorrow. It is a book that comes along
just once in a lifetime to change lives forever.

"The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:29 am




"The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle
I have read many self-help books in my life, but not one has ever had the same impact on my life as the 'The Power of Now'.
Every word 'oozes' absolute truth and it can only have been inspired by the author first having had a life that made no sense. As a result, the author Eckhart Tolle had a total breakdown, but like a phoenix rising from the ashes and with more than a little help from The Buddha's teachings he analysed his life situation and found that the basic problem was that his mind was 'all noise 'from living in the past and thinking 'it will be alright in the future'. Recognise any similarities with yourself anybody?
Solution, get this book and start practicing with a conscious mind and living in the present moment.
Living in the present moment does not mean withdrawing from modern society or even material possessions. What it does mean is living from a deeper perspective from within yourself, the 'inner being' and finding fulfilment well away from where you thought you would find it, somewhere on the outside.
Buy this book, read it, re-read, practice its teachings and you will be on the road to a full, spiritually based (not religious), life that could only be dreamed of without it. (Adrian Bray)

"The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:32 am




"The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne
Fragments of a Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. For the first time, all the pieces of The Secret come together in an incredible revelation that will be life-transforming for all who experience it.
In this book, you'll learn how to use The Secret in every aspect of your life -- money, health, relationships, happiness, and in every interaction you have in the world. You'll begin to understand the hidden, untapped power that's within you, and this revelation can bring joy to every aspect of your life.
The Secret contains wisdom from modern-day teachers -- men and women who have used it to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. By applying the knowledge of The Secret, they bring to light compelling stories of eradicating disease, acquiring massive wealth, overcoming obstacles, and achieving what many would regard as impossible.

"Emotional Intelligence" by Daniel Goleman

Post by Durga Rises With Wings on Tue Jan 17, 2017 6:41 am


"Emotional Intelligence" by Daniel Goleman
There was a time when IQ was considered the leading determinant of
success. In this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioral
research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ-idolizing view of
intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for
"emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human
success. He defines emotional intelligence in terms of self-awareness,
altruism, personal motivation, empathy, and the ability to love and be
loved by friends, partners, and family members. People who possess
high emotional intelligence are the people who truly succeed in work
as well as play, building flourishing careers and lasting, meaningful
relationships. Because emotional intelligence isn't fixed at birth,
Goleman outlines how adults as well as parents of young children can
sow the seeds.

Reading can be enjoyable and educational, young Owl. However, do not forget your goals. Consider weighing the value of each thing in your life, especially pastimes like this. 

Double Plus Good!

Great reading list Durga,! I have always heard reference to 1984, but have never happened across it myself. I already have The Secret and The Celestine Prophecy (it has two companion books, in case you didn't know). I found reasons to pick them up at thrift stores, or yard sales, but have never given my self time to explore them. I guess I will need to focus and orchestrate my opportunity. I love to read, but will admit I often hide in novels of pure fantasy over trusting that a little more reality in my life will help me to relax.I typically don't buy much band new, I scour thrift stores,  yard sales and second-hand book shops.

Gday Lumos, 1984 is not a book I would enter into reading now, as its very dark in nature, that was my dark days reading material, I have since changed in my style of books now. Yes I have read all of Rhonda Byrnes books, I started with The Secret, then read The Power, The Magic, and The Hero. Same with James Redfield Collection of the Celestine Prophecy, Tenth Insight, Secrets of Shambahla and Twelfth Insight. Amazing books!
I love going to thrift stores too, book hunting is thrilling for me, it's like little hidden treasures for super cheap lol.
Good to see you here.
