POWER OF POSITIVE CHOICES Adding and Subtracting Your Way to a Great Life Gail McMeekin
The author of The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women is back, helping readers to create the power of making positive choices that enhance well-being and fulfillment.
The world is on overload, at least from our modern-day Western perspective. Gail McMeekin believes that we can effectively reduce stress in our lives and bring more meaning into them, and she has developed a program to help people to do just that by showing them the power of making positive choices. Readers are taught to see their Serenity Stealers--issues, habits, people--that need to be "subtracted" from their lives. With those negative life choices gone--choices that depleted their energy and sidetracked them from their goals--readers are shown how to make positive life choices.
Carefully selected and added one at a time, these life choices will bring them closer to the joy and meaningfulness they need and desire. The Power of Positive Choices is short and brief by design. Filled with probing questions and helpful self-tests, McMeekin shows us how, by making positive choices, to delete "serenity stealers" and multiply our happiness.

POWER OF SOUND How to Be Healthy and Productive Using Music and Sound Joshua Leeds
What we hear, and how we process it, has a far greater impact on our daily living than we realise. From the womb to the moment we die we are surrounded by sound and what we hear can either energise or deplete our nervous systems. It is no exaggeration to say that what goes into our ears can harm us or heal us.
Joshua Leeds - a pioneer in the application of music for health, learning and productivity - explains how sound can be a powerful ally. He explores chronic sensory overload and how auditory dysfunction often results in difficulties with learning and social interactions. He offers innovative techniques designed to invigorate auditory skills and provide balanced sonic environments.
In this revised and updated edition of THE POWER OF SOUND, Leeds includes current research, extensive resources, analysis of the maturing field of soundwork and a look at the effect of sound on animals. He, also, provides a new 75-minute CD of psychoacoustically designed classical music for a direct experience of the effect of simplified sound on the nervous system. With new information on how to use music and sound for enhanced health and productivity, THE POWER OF SOUND provides readers with practical solutions for vital and sustained well-being.
POWER OF THE POPPY Harnessing Nature's Most Dangerous Plant Ally Kenaz Filan
Few plant allies have a history as long and well-documented as Papaver somniferum, the celebrated and infamous opium poppy. For thousands of years people around the world have been unable to resist the poppy's siren song of intoxicating pleasure, pain relief and visionary states - so much so that this potent plant has literally adapted itself to human civilisation: in increasing its intoxicating properties, it came to rely solely on humankind for its propagation.
From 6,000-year-old poppy seeds found in archaeological digs in Europe to the black tar heroin factories of South America and the modern 'War on Drugs,' Kenaz Filan explores the history of this enduring plant and its many derivatives - including opium, morphine, oxycodone, methadone and fentanyl - as well as its symbiotic relationship with humans as medicine, food, intoxicant and visionary tool. Profiling 11 famous users including Thomas de Quincey, William S. Burroughs, Lou Reed and DJ Screw, Filan examines how opium and other poppy derivatives inspired them as well as the high price it exacted for its inspiration. Covering techniques of cultivation, extraction and safe consumption along with methods for overcoming addiction and staying 'clean,' this book offers a sensible approach to the poppy that recognises the plant not as a crop to be harvested or eradicated but as a living, sentient ally that can offer healing or harm and must be approached with respect and caution.

POWER OF TRUST Transforming Fear Into Love Bea Lovejoy
THE POWER OF TRUST explores the amazing energy of letting go and how trust can turn fear back into love the essence of all life. In learning to trust we discover that the peace happiness safety and freedom we seek are permanent inner realities we already have. Trust turns aloneness into oneness. It turns the fear of being controlled and the struggle to control ourselves and others into true power and freedom. Trust transforms disabling unworthiness into self-honouring. When we let go of the fear of scarcity and not-enoughness we discover abundance. When we surrender the fear of suffering and death we discover that our souls cannot be separate from our bodies - that life is a permanent reality we can experience now and forever. THE POWER OF TRUST offers a clear fresh understanding of the transforming energy of trust. How we develop basic trust or mistrust as children and the consequences of early childhood development provides valuable insight into where we are now. With clarity and illuminating examples the author shows how to heal unhealthy relationships and how to develop healthy trusting connections with self others and God. Self-assessments at the beginnings of chapters help the reader see specifically where fear worry and anxiety may be blocking the experiencing of love peace and happiness.
Recognised seer, Edgar Cayce, explains the origin and destiny of mind and its amazing potential as he shows us how to expand our consciousness beyond self and explains the influential mind-body connection that means so much to our health: physically, emotionally and mentally.
In this fascinating book, Cayce illustrates how 'thoughts are things' that may become 'crimes or miracles' in our lives. He explains how by changing our thinking patterns, we can change our life for the better. He gives a unique view into our mind at sleep - describing the influences motivating our dreams and visions and showing us how to better interpret them. He clarifies why the dreaming mind is so much more important to us than we realiSe.
In one special chapter he explains how our minds are our builder, capable of taking us anywhere we want to go - as the old saying goes: as we think, so we become. He, also, addresses the need to move away from a too self-centred consciousness, opening up to a larger consciousness with powerful intuition and precognition, giving us more access to ideas and wisdom.
And lastly, Cayce takes us to the wondrous metaphysical realms of God-consciousness and Cosmic-consciousness. He compares our human minds with the Infinite Mind, and explains how the two may know each other and work together to solve all of life's problems.

· A bestselling classic edited and expanded to reflect contemporary issues and language · Includes the complete text of the Prentice Hall Press trade paperback edition, including original commentary from the author · This is now the only available mass market edition authorised by the Joseph Murphy Trust · For readers of Rhonda Byrnes's The Secret and Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich
The mystery of enlightenment has eluded scholars for centuries. In this concise book, Susan Kerr breaks through the illusion and confusion to bring to light the secrets of this ancient knowledge. In a clear and concise manner she explains: · Exactly what enlightenment is · How to become enlightened yourself · What to expect in the process.
Her ideas are based on her own experiences. She makes the process seem simple and shows that enlightenment is not just a goal for gurus and monks, but for anyone interested in self-realisation - that is, experiencing the fullness of who we really are.
Ms. Kerr suggests that the quickest path to “enlightenment” is through our feelings—the direct, raw experience as felt in the very moment of occurrence—before thoughts get in the way. These feelings still hold the power of the initial experience— whether painful, traumatic or even joyful—and in liberating them, we clear our souls to see and feel in new ways. In her words, “Enlightenment is all about love and love can only be felt. Therefore, the only way to know enlightenment is to feel it!”
