Ask and it is Given

Why we like this book… As you read, you’ll come to understand how your relationships, health issues, finances, career concerns and more are influenced by the Universal laws that govern your time-space-reality – and you’ll discover powerful processes that will help you go with the positive flow of life. It’s your birthright to live a life filled with everything that is good – and this book will show you how to make it so in every way! It is not a ‘wave a magic wand and all your dreams will immediately come true’ type of book. But it is a thought provoking book that makes perfect sense to me – and also makes those dreams a lot closer to fruition! The foreword is written by Dr Wayne Dyer – and there are also words of praise for the Teachings of Abraham from such people as Neale Donald Walsch, John Gray, Louise Hay, Jack Canfield and more. I have since bought two more copies for my step-daughters -they are also enjoying reading this book.

The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles

Why we like this book… With more than 100,000 copies sold of his self-published book, “The Biology of Belief,” Bruce Lipton teams up with Hay House to bring his message to an even wider audience. This book is a ground-breaking work in the field of new biology, and it will forever change how you think about thinking. Through the research of Dr. Lipton and other leading-edge scientists, stunning new discoveries have been made about the interaction between your mind and body and the processes by which cells receive information. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology, that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our thoughts. Using simple language, illustrations, humor, and everyday examples, he demonstrates how the new science of “Epigenetics” is revolutionizing our understanding of the link between mind and matter and the profound effects it has on our personal lives and the collective life of our species.

The EFT Manual

Why we like this book… This is the print version of the official manual for Emotional Freedom Techniques – EFT. It is one of the most successful psychology self-help manuals ever published EFT is a remarkable new technique which uses the body’s natural stress-reduction points. EFT originator Gary Craig takes the reader through the basic steps of identifying the emotional roots of their problems, and crafting a combination of words that will trigger a healing response. He discusses the ways in which EFT can be applied to a variety of common conditions, including pain, fears, addictions and cravings, weight issues, insomnia and guilt. If you want a ‘real’ book instead of downloading the manual from the EFT site then this is the one for you! It is a handy size for carrying around.

The Genie In Your Genes

Why we like this book… Health writer Dawson Church, Ph.D., decided to investigate the scientific basis of so-called “medical miracles” and the role of consciousness in healing. The result is The Genie in Your Genes, the first book to summarize remarkable scientific studies that are revolutionizing the ways we think about the link between consciousness and health.The book focuses on a class of genes called Immediate Early Genes or IEGs, which can be triggered by thoughts or emotions, as well as outside events to turn on other genes that affect specific aspects of our immune system. He explores the science behind the breakthroughs being achieved through Energy Psychology techniques, showing that there is a sound theoretical framework, based on credible experiments, for understanding these astonishing results–and predicts that these techniques will dramatically advance the fields of medicine and psychology in the coming decade.Showcasing some 300 scientific studies, The Genie in Your Genes points to where the leading edge of science might take medicine and psychology in the next century.

The Healing Power of EFT & Energy Psychology

Why we like this book… This ground-breaking book explains how to tap into your body’s energy not only to change your health, but to change your behaviours and thought patterns as well. Your body is comprised of energy pathways and energy centres that are in constant motion, interconnecting with your cells, organs, immune system, mood and thoughts. “The Healing Power of Energy Psychology” shows you how to shift these energies, so you can influence your physical health, your emotional patterns, and your state of mind. With this strategy, stubborn phobias often fade in minutes, the lifelong effects of an early trauma can frequently be reduced or completely eliminated, uncontrollable anger can rapidly become manageable and even elusive physical problems may respond where other treatments have failed. Here are simple step-by-step instructions to help you: change unwanted habits and behaviours; enhance your ability to love, succeed, and enjoy life; overcome fear, guilt, shame, jealousy. The energy approach presented in this book can help bring about significant change in your life.
