I often recommend books to clients so I thought I’d make a list of the ones I most regulary recommend. These are awesome, life changing books. I guess number one would be “Loving What Is” by Byron Katie. Teaches you how to accept your life and be happy with it. I use her teaching all the time in my life and its made a huge impact on me. Another one near the top of the list would be The Secret, which of course teaches about the Law of Attraction, or how we create our lives with our thoughts. I tell people that its not the best book on the Law of Attraction, but its a great starting point. Don’t read it quickly – read a bit each day and ponder on what you’ve read. When you are ready to move on to higher teachings on the Law of Attraction anything by Abraham-Hicks is great (Esther and Jerry hicks and the teachings of Abraham). When I have clients who are having relationship issues I often recommend The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. He teaches how we give and receive love in different ways and the way your partner is showing their love may not be a way you recognize, and vice versa. One of the best books I ever read is When the Body Says No by Dr Gabor Mate. An amazing book that everyone in the world should read, especially if they have an interest in health, or are stressed or unwell. This next one is not for everyone, depending on their beliefs, but the trilogy (books 1, 2 & 3) Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch are mind blowing and also life changing. Start with Book 1. I’ll talk about some other books I love in another blog. Happy reading and let me know what you think.
We had an unseasonably warm winter day last weekend and as I remarked on how wonderful it was at least two people said “it won’t last, there’ll be snow to follow”. I was stunned by their negativity – well the negative expectation at least. I can’t imagine what its like to go through life not even able to enjoy the moment or the day. Someone who practices the Law of Attraction well and is a positive person would respond “yes, its so wonderful” or something to that effect. Remember that its not just our thoughts that create our reality, but our beliefs and our EXPECTATIONS. Now I’m not saying that our expectatons can control the weather, but if we are to expect good things in our lives we must start with the little things. Practice gratitude by being happy with what you have. Live in the moment. If you are looking ahead do it with the expectation that even more good things will come your way. I refuse to buy into the doom and gloom mood, including weather predictions. I receive ‘Notes From The Universe’ (put out by Mike Dooley) into my inbox every day and thoroughly enjoy them. Today there was this message at the bottom of the email which I loved. NEWS FLASH 1 WEATHER ADVISORY: This week’s forecast will be marked with buoyant optimism scattered throughout the land with intermittent bursts of hope, faith, and euphoria that are expected to create numerous high pressure cells ideal for dreams coming true.
