Books You Should Be Reading:
The Anger Diet
- Brenda Shoshanna, Ph. D.
This book is listed first since after spring cleaning is done, it is always easier to organize. So if you’re going to get to know your inner self and how your emotional palette is, than start with clearing out the waste. Also for those that are not avid readers, (which I do not agree with, if you are not reading, you will lose out in this new future we are going into, gotta be able to read the fine print.)
This is an a thirty day challenge that will surface an amazing new you. You get as much as you put in so if you dig deep with every simple daily objective, you will reveal quite a bit about yourself as well as jumpstart your emotional journey/awakening by milestones.
The Mastery of Love
-Don Miguel Ruiz
“One cannot be mad when a cat does not bark” -ADVP
If you are not a fan of coming home to something, than why do you have it in your life. This amazing book that contends for first place is a tale about an old southwestern north american civilization named the Toltecs, and how they harnessed the power of our emotions. Understanding what the human input and output is continues to baffle as time runs through. This book explains how our feelings are similar to nutrients or infections and considered a disease in the most contagious way. At any single point in this book, the reader will hear a mental “click!”, where it does just that! It clicks as to how we are as people and how we associate with one another. You learn to read peoples true nature and understanding your own, see the capabilities as clear as day!
Men are from Mars Women are from Venus
-John Gray, Ph.D
This book is great to kick off the party. It speaks to both worlds. This book explains how we are in fact to different species, we do everything different! As to why we keep from giving the credit to the other half & that they may not speak your language! Great read over and over again, as we are doing so ourselves!
Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting
- Lynn Grabhorn
If one has any understanding of the Laws of Attraction, than this book is even more powerful. When a person had a child at a young age, being of healthy and loving sound mind, that child serves as a wonderful fire under their keister; since the child’s value to them motivates the parent to get their life together. Not saying that we are doing so particularly well as of the year 2012, however to keep from dwelling in the past, we can move forward and change. This book is perfect for getting you off that lazy bum couch of a mindset, or even mundane drone out routine, and gets you in gear! Explaining piezoelectricity in the most laymens terms, EVERYONE CAN & should read this.
21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership
-John C. Maxwell
This is a wonderful book to strengthen the backbone. For big dreamers and over achievers this book is awesome. Not the easiest read, it still has activities and little objective reviews after every chapter that allow practice on grasping the “Leadership” role and all that comes with it. Anyone in business should read this. Actually, anyone wanting to grab life by the horns and take charge by starting with this book!
- Rhonda Byrne
This of course is the classic manual on the Law of Attraction however similar to yoga, if you should consult someone who grasps this concept since it can be done very wrong. This book of course needs no review since it’s reputation precedes it.
As you continue on your awakening, or wellness journey, you’ve lost some weight and cleansed a couple issues, are now feeling a lot better than before however you may reach a point where you begin to plateau. Almost a stagnant, and a slippery slope for when our passion begins to lessen its embers and the negative can creep in. Very similar to losing weight; after losing quite a bit of inches, shedding pounds may not be as quickly seen in the latter stages, even so we may focus our mental motivation elsewhere. This is the point where we tighten and tone.
Quantum Wellness by Kathy Freston is just that. The remedy to when our meditation and inner transformation for the better putters out; This book greats wonderful honing objectives that push us in onto the next level you may be struggling to reach. It also creates a splendid understanding of the dance between our physical, mental and spiritual health. It is a good clean read and definitely needed in any wellness collection.
I found this book in a wonderful little metaphysical store in the middle America. It got me over this horrific slump I had hit one mid-summer. I received a project that was normally out of my genre and upon mid project my client was not impressed. I spent a generous amount of time mulling how I was going to snazz this project up and bring it up to par to my regular work. This book was a godsend. It walked me right through the self sabotaging habits many creative people go through and exercises on how to get out of that funk that we know as artist, will effect your pocketbook if you cannot pull yourself out of. Luckily, you are not alone. Read this and not only will you relate to its simplistic view but it will even allow you to understand your brain, creative side and not so creative side and all.
