TICKET TO FREEDOM: A Self Empowerment Guide For Women
by Nancy Wylde

Read my interview with Nancy Wylde.

From the Publisher:
“Woman’s self-empowerment is not about manipulating, controlling or dominating the lives of those around you. Rather, it is about how to direct and master your own life. This power already lies deep within you. Once you learn to attune to this inner power, you can draw on it to get what you really want out of life without a great deal of struggle. Whoever you are, whatever your circumstances at this moment, regardless of your color, culture or religion, you can start building your courage now-so that you can move toward what you really want out of life. The power to create what you want to realize in your life is in the palm of YOUR hands. And this is your TICKET TO FREEDOM”

About the Author:
Born in Australia, Nancy Wylde is a present day writer and motivational speaker on challenges that still confront many women today on their journey to self-empowerment.

Her unique earthy practical and humorous style appeals to women of all backgrounds.  Nancy has appeared on television and radio.  She lectures to promote her work to help women realise their full potential, and to harness the power that lies deep within them in order to move toward their goals.

Children who see beyond the veil

Intuitive Children: Children Who See Beyond the Veil 
by Kylie Holmes

• Paperback: 240 pages

• Language: English
• ISBN-10: 1846941652

• Retail Price: $24.95

From the Publisher:
Who on earth is that imaginary friend your child talks about? And talks to? Their own creation? A figment of a creative and fertile imagination? But what if? What if this friend is something we don’t yet have a word for. A ghost? A Spirit Guide? An ancestor wanting to reach out to this sensitive and receptive child? And what about those dreams? Those images your child conjures from nowhere? Ones that no one could possibly ‘dream up’? And what about the invisible friends who come to dinner? Recent research indicates that there is a strong possibility that imaginary friends could be a relative who passed away before the child was born. When Jade, my daughter was 3 years old, she always defiantly asserted that ‘Sammy’ was her brother. Could this be the child I lost in a miscarriage years ago?Some people dismiss the spirit world as jiggery-pokery. Others wait in the firm belief that loved ones who have passed over will be in contact. It seems that children up to the age of eight, are receptive to spirit contact. After this time the tangible, concrete world of logical strategies and mathematical equations sets in. As the child is challenging what they know, start to perceive and test boundaries, question their parents and, importantly, absorbs their peers’ perspectives and opinions, some faculties may get lost. Or hidden away. Mediums, sensitives and their clients have evidence that the door to spirit contact can sometimes remain open into adulthood.

It seems that everything he ran away from the violence, the hatred, the betrayal have all but vanished. But the island s ghosts are not so easily dispelled. King of Nod layers time and secrets in an intricate pattern of half-truths and glimpses of redemption that slowly dissect the riddle of the island s past and its inexorable connection to Boos own fate.

Pan, the King of Lust, has offered to make Daun his right-hand incubus

The Road To Hell (Hell on Earth, Book 3)
by Jackie Kessler
From the Publisher:

Daunuan was never the ambitious type. There’s so much to love about his job just the way it is—mind-blowing sexual prowess, the power to seduce any human, excellent dental plan. But now Pan, the King of Lust, has offered to make Daun his right-hand incubus—a position other demons would give their left horn for. All he has to do is entice a soul destined for heaven into a damnable act of lust. Should take, oh, seven minutes, tops.

Then he meets his target, Virginia Reed. She’s cute. Funny. Smart. Unfathomably resistant to his charms. He can’t understand it. But Daun has centuries of seduction to his credit. He’s the best there is. Sooner or later he’ll transform this polar icecap of a female into a pool of molten desire, and every instinct tells him she’ll be worth the effort.

Meanwhile, he has to deal with a plague of rogue demons Hell-bent on taking him down, sent by an unknown enemy with a serious grudge. And one other problem: the dawning realization that he’s falling in love—that unholiest of four-letter words—with the woman he’s about to doom for all eternity…

About the Author:

From Jackie’s website: “Some kids want to grow up to be doctors, or movie stars, or political assassins. Me, I wanted to draw comic books. Not Archie comics, either—superhero comic books. Maybe it was all the heavily muscled guys in spandex…

Around the time I was 15, I realized that as much as I enjoyed drawing (note that I’m saying nothing about the quality of those pics), it was a lot of fun putting words in the characters’ mouths. I didn’t know the term “fanfic” back then, but I started writing stories about the X-Men, Alpha Flight, and the Teen Titans. Didn’t do anything with those stories, other than horrify my mother. She asked why I couldn’t write nice stories, you know, about bunnies. Nope—me, I wanted to write about power. About magic. About hot guys in spandex. And about beating those guys bloody and senseless. (In retrospect, maybe I really did want to horrify my mother. Hey, not my fault. When I was a kid, I busted her doodling on the cover of New Teen Titans #6. Argh!)

So maybe it’s ironic that the book I wound up writing had nothing to do with overly muscled men and everything to do with scantily clad women. (Well, temporarily scantily clad.) Oh, right, and demons.

Previously, I was the fantasy editor for Wild Child Publishing. Along with working with terrific authors and editors, I’d been fortunate enough to interview a number of fabulous people for WCP, including Margaret Weis (I think Raistlin was my first crush).

In case you’re wondering, I live in Upstate New York, along with my Loving Husband and two Precious Little Tax Deductions, two cats, and about 9,000 comics. (But actually, that number is now closer to 8,000, thanks to a flooded basement. Alas!)”

I used to have sex with men before taking their souls to the lake of fire—ask me how

The Road To Hell (Hell on Earth, Book 2)
by Jackie Kessler

From the Publisher:

Jesse may no longer be a soul-stealing succubus, but she’s got a Hell of a past. She’d love to come clean to her sweet, super-hot boyfriend Paul, but how exactly does a girl start that conversation? There’s no name tag that reads: “I Used to Have Sex with Men before Taking Their Souls to the Lake of Fire—Ask Me How!” Just like some people are worth being monogamous for (shudder), some secrets are worth keeping. Like the fact that bad boy incubus Daunuan keeps popping up from the Underworld to put some toe-curling moves on her; that her former associates are trying to strong-arm her back into the fold; and that every supernatural entity on the planet seems to want to have a conversation with her in the bathroom. But someone in the Underworld isn’t ready to play nice (go figure), and this time, the stakes are nothing less than Paul’s immortal soul.

If Hell wants Jesse back so badly, they’ve got her. But payback’s a bitch, and this bitch is about to rock Hell like a hurricane—or lose her soul trying…

Jezebel was a powerful succubus

Hell’s Belles
by Jackie Kessler

From the Publisher:

Once upon a time, Jezebel was a powerful succubus, capable of seducing men and sucking out their souls. But that was before Hell put a bounty on her head. Now her only chance to escape a fate far worse than death is to live as a mortal, losing herself in a sea of unfamiliar humanity, in a place where sinners walk hand-in-hand with saints – a place like Belle’s strip club in New York City.Working as an exotic dancer is a piece of cake for a former demon who once specialized in sex. Taking money from men? Please. It’s like leading lawyers to the Lake of Fire. Plus the lingerie is great. But she hadn’t counted on meeting sexy Paul Hamilton, a man haunted by his past. Good-bye, succubus; hello, love struck. Learning all about how complicated – and pleasurable – love can be, Jezebel thinks she’s turned her back on Hell.But Hell hasn’t stopped looking for her. The secrets Jezebel holds are the most dangerous of all, the kind every demon in the Underworld would do their worst to protect. Demons are closing in, which is enough to make Jezebel shiver in her G-string. But it’s her love for Paul that’s going to have deadly consequences…

How progression therapy into future lives can help transform us in the present

Same Soul, Many Bodies: Discover the Healing Power of Future Lives through Progression Therapy
by Brian L. Weiss

From the Publisher:

Noted psychiatrist Brian Weiss made headlines with his pioneering research on the healing power of past-life therapy in his million-copy bestseller, Many Lives, Many Masters. Now, in his astounding and groundbreaking new book, Dr. Weiss reveals how our future lives can actually transform us in the present.

We all have lived past lives. We all will live future ones. What we do in this life will influence our lives to come as we evolve toward immortality. Dr. Weiss encourages this important recognition because recently he has not only regressed his patients into the past, but has progressed them into the future. And what they have discovered is that our futures are variable, so the choices we make now will determine the quality of life when we return. Using dozens of case histories, Dr. Weiss demonstrates the therapeutic benefits of progression, just as he has proved that journeys into our past lives can alleviate or cure our physical and emotional wounds in the present.

Among the many patients who have benefited from the therapies are:

Samantha, who overcame failures at school when she revisited her life as a Greek architect and later saw her future life as a great physician.

Hugh, a psychic, tortured in the Middle Ages as a heretic, whose journey to the future brought him peace.

Gary, whose glimpses into the future evaporated his depression and thoughts of suicide.

Christina, whose past life and future memories enabled her to heal her relationship with her father and to finally find professional success and personal happiness.

Evelyn, who, after reliving a past life as a Nazi officer and a future life as a teenage Arab girl, was able to release her fears and prejudices.

Paul, whose love of Alison transcended past and future, transforming his current life and helping Alison to overcome a dangerous disease.

Same Soul, Many Bodies is a revolutionary book, building on Dr. Weiss’s discoveries about the past, a book that will take his millions of readers into an individual and collective future that they themselves will create. In the process, their present lives will be profoundly transformed, and they will find more peace, more joy, and more healing.
About the Author:

Brian L. Weiss, M.D., a graduate of Columbia University and Yale Medical School, is Chairman Emeritus of Psychiatry at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami. Dr. Weiss is the author of many books, including the bestselling Many Lives, Many Masters and Through Time into Healing. In addition, he conducts national and international seminars and experiential workshops as well as training programs for professionals. He maintains a private practice in Miami.

Change your thoughts, change your life

Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life
Living the Wisdom of the Tao
by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

From the Publisher:

Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

In this set, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has created 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today’s modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne’s researching of 10 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are “Living with Flexibility,” “Living Without Enemies,” and “Living by Letting Go.” Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called “Doing the Tao Now.”

Wayne spent one entire year reading, researching, and meditating on Lao-tzu’s messages, practicing them each day and ultimately writing down these essays as he felt Lao-tzu wanted you to know them.

This is a work to be followed slowly, one essay a day. As Wayne says, “This will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you’ll live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace I’ve ever experienced. I’m so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me.”
About the Author

Wayne W. Dyer, Ph.D., is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He’s the author of 30 books, has created many audio programs and videos, and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. His books Manifest Your Destiny, Wisdom of the Ages, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, and The New York Times bestsellers 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, The Power of Intention, Inspiration, and Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life have all been featured as National Public Television specials.

Your soul’s compass, what is spiritual guidance

Your Soul’s Compass: What Is Spiritual Guidance? (Hardcover)
by Joan Z. Borysenko

From the Publisher:

Why am I here? What does a life worth living look like?
What is the higher intelligence trying to express through me?
 
 
In this time of global change and uncertainty, of spiritual indirection, Americans are asking these age-old questions with renewed curiosity. There’s a thirst for meaning and purpose—a dawning realization that happiness isn’t a commodity that can be bought with a gold card. Fulfillment and joy arise naturally from creative and compassionate action– from the understanding that all life is interconnected and guided by a higher intelligence. Our personal choices make a difference, and when they are spiritually inspired even the smallest action serves a larger whole.

Sacred texts ranging from the Torah to the New Testament, the Tao Te Ching to the Buddhist scriptures, the Vedantas to the Koran, speak of making life-enhancing choices where a force greater than the individual flows through us and informs our thoughts and actions. In this book we’ll focus on the three classic aspects of living such a spiritually guided life: (1) alignment: maintaining a direct and personal connection to the Source of our Being; (2) discernment: distinguishing the movement of Spirit in our lives from our own wants, fears and social conditioning; and (3) action: making our best, most inspired contribution to the evolution of life.

About the Author

How did a Harvard trained medical scientist become a mystic? In reality, it was the other way around. At the age of 10, Joan experienced 6 months of an alternate reality, what modern psychiatry would label psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorder. One day, while praying fervently for help, all fear and confusion parted to reveal a luminous reality of exquisite love, surpassing peace, and practical wisdom that guided her to an almost instantaneous recovery. Her journey to hell and back birthed a lifelong fascination with healing, the roots of consciousness, and the realm of Spirit. Weaving together biology, psychology, and spirituality in a credible, accessible way is her soul’s purpose.

Joan’s doctorate is from the Harvard Medical School where she subsequently completed postdoctoral fellowships in cancer cell biology, psychoneuroimmunology, and behavioral medicine. In 1987, her New Times bestseller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind (revised in 2007 for it’s 20 year anniversary edition) described the program of mental and physical healing that she and her colleagues pioneered at a leading Boston hospital. She has authored or co-authored a dozen other books about healing, inner peace, and the spiritual journey, along with numerous audio programs and guided meditation CD’s. Joan is also a licensed psychologist, a journalist, a renowned inspirational speaker, and a television personality.

Her lifelong interest in mysticism and the world’s religions culminated in co-founding The Claritas (Latin for clarity and illumination) Institute for Interspiritual Inquiry with her husband, organizational psychologist Gordon Dveirin, Ed.D. The Institute has programs to train spiritual mentors, offers spiritual guidance to individuals and corporations, and hosts seminars and retreats. Joan and Gordon’s new book, Your Soul’s Compass: What is Spiritual Guidance? reveals how we can co-operate with the living field of possibilities to align with the emerging good in any situation.

Doctor Brian L. Weiss discovers past lives

Many Lives, Many Masters
by Brian L. Weiss

From the Publisher:

As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from the “space between lives,” which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss’ family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career.

About the Author:

After graduating magna cum laude from Columbia University and receiving his medical degree at the Yale University School of Medicine, Brian L. Weiss, M.D., served his internship at New York University’s Bellevue Medical Center and went on to become chief resident, Department of Psychiatry, at the Yale University School of Medicine. Currently, Dr. Weiss is chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida, and clinical associate professor, Department of Psychiatry, at the University of Miami School of Medicine. He specializes in the study and treatment of depression and anxiety states, sleep disorders, substance abuse disorders, Alzheimer’s Disease, and brain chemistry.
