This is an absolutely brilliant little book for anyone who wants to delve into their future and find their purpose using Chaldean numerology.
You Were Born to Succeed starts with an introduction to numerology and where it fits in relation to science, spirit and the occult. It then explores the mystery of numbers and the spiritual principles that drive us. The second part of the book, entitled “The Technology,” tells you all you need to know to compile your own Chaldean Soul Chart.
Fairbrother guides you step-by-step through your own numerology chart and how to determine the numbers that reveal your purpose, direction, inner desire, outer life. From there, the author guides you through another layer of numerology by figuring your pinnacles and challenges, as well as your personal years and months. An easy to follow chart is provided to record your findings or jot down your calculations for family and friends.
The author, a psychotherapist who uses Chaldean numerology as an assessment tool in her own practice enthuses, “It’s the easiest and most accurate tool an individual can use to gain knowledge of who they are, what they are doing here, and where they are going.”
If you are interested in finding out your purpose and interpreting the cycles that occur in your life, then read this book with a notepad and pen at hand. And maybe a calculator too! Highly recommended.
When you open Rashmi Khilnani’s latest book, Buddha Speaks, the first thing you realize is that Khilnani received these messages by channeling the Buddha. You’ll almost certainly begin to debate whether Khilnani’s intense meditation experiences emanate from the historical Buddha or from her own mind. The second thing you realize, however, is that it doesn’t really matter where the messages originated. The experienced author knows this and addresses it up front, saying “such a question comes from the mind which seeks division, separation, and definition. In unity consciousness … I become my Buddha Self which is one with the All, and thus this becomes a dialogue with my own Buddha nature.”
With the question of source largely taken off the table, Khilnani lets readers delve into the content of her meditation sessions, which are surprisingly conversational and down-to-earth. In fact, one of Khilnani’s recurring themes is how to bring sacred teachings into the sphere of everyday life. One of the most intriguing aspects of the book is the ongoing conversation about how this bridging of the sacred and the profane might look different today than it did when the Buddha attained enlightenment.
Even when taking on the largest philosophical questions, Khilnani’s Buddha remains accessible to the average reader, especially with the gentle humor mixed into the conversation throughout. Among the responses to questions about the meaning of life, for instance, the Buddha replies with a snippet of the children’s song, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” This playfulness brings a delightful balance to discussions that might otherwise feel overwhelming.
Previous study of Buddhist literature might enhance a reader’s experience, but newcomers are more than welcome here as well.
Desda Zuckerman has taken her 40+ years of experience in studying the human energy structure and created an in-depth guide to the energy systems of the human body and soul in her book Your Sacred Anatomy: An Owner’s Guide to the Human Energy Structure.
This book goes far beyond the discussion of chakras and auras, and instead outlines the many parts that make up the Human Energy Structure (HES) such as, the template, the bones of light, and the harmonizing network guiding readers in sensing and understanding their own sacred anatomy. The book is divided into two parts; “Your Owner’s Guide” which provides a brief overview of the HES, and “Your Technical Manual” which is a comprehensive discussion of each of the seven soul layer structures and how they work together. Throughout both sections there are exercises that will guide readers in sensing their own HES as well as specific case studies that illustrate the importance of the HES in the overall health of the human body. Also included are the 7 anatomical systems of the HES, discussion of the 13 chakras, guidance to sever entanglements, magnificent illustrations, and so much more.
There is no doubt this book is very detailed in the explanation of the HES and while it may be best understood and used by healers and energy workers, it is also very informative for those with an interest in the intricate workings of the subtle energy body.
Recycling a few bottles and turning out a light now and then isn’t nearly enough. If we’re going to provide any quality of life for ourselves and future generations, we must come together and transform our way of viewing and interacting with the world. A BIG STRATEGY attempts to draw a roadmap to this new way of life with guidelines to help responsible individuals establish the foundation for sustainable models based upon local matrices.
Authors Hughes and Monica build the big strategy from three concepts: “Plaza, a web of lifestyle centres that creates a social regeneration strata; Ecotithe, a financial consumer mechanism that forms a business strata [;] and Local Global Immune System, a web-based environmental solution network.”
The strategy is built around local facilities where members of the community can engage in “environment-friendly living, co-ordinating and promoting wholesale greening methods through entertainment,” and the sale of products arranged “in a way that enables companies to adapt to new higher standards that factor in the environment.” The strategy is built entirely around a foundation of community cohesion, altruism, and ethical consumerism.
Drawing on all the sciences as well as traditional methods and philosophies, A BIG STRATEGY is presented as the beginning of a new way of life, and encourages individuals and groups to contribute their own innovative ideas to the collective. It’s a big task, and the authors freely admit that it’s more than a handful. The enormity of what they propose is impossible to capsulize, so readers must be prepared to make leaps in logic and even in intuition.
Nevertheless, A BIG STRATEGY does a fine job of spelling out the history of our environmental downfall and the giant steps required to convince the world that we must rebuild from the center out. An outside editor could have given the book a tighter focus, but the ideas and the intent of this book make it an inspiring and motivating read.
I am almost finished reading this book. I love it. I would love to meet Annie Kagan one day. Her writing is filled with so much love and feeling. I could feel what she must have felt. I have laughed and cried all through the book so far. I almost don't want to finish this book because the experience will be over. Thank you Annie Kagan for sharing your experience.

As an aficionado of Oracle cards, I believe they can offer a wealth of knowledge to us if we listen. Many decks offer two or three ways to interpret the messages being offered by your personal energy emanating from within the cards. This deck, however, is unique in the variety of card “spreads” offered. These vibrant COLOUR cards can be enjoyed in a variety of ways and Inna Segal encourages each

The beloved author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull is freedom-bound as he takes to the skies in a newly-purchased seaplane christened “Puff”. Before attempting the cross-country journey from Florida to his home in Washington state, the philosophical pilot practices short flights, getting the feel for this light aircraft that is skittish from crashes with previous owners. You’ll need to ride through the mechanical details of piloting a plane (just when you’ve had enough, Bach realizes it, too), but you’ll be rewarded with a view of life from the cockpit, stunning photographs taken by a fellow aviator piloting another SeaRey alongside, and choice Bach-isms like: there’s no disaster that can’t become a blessing. As Bach and Puff flirt with danger they come to trust each other, flexing their wings and overcoming fear. In typical fashion the author personifies inanimate objects, which I find delightful, but with the repetition of water landings and checking that the wheels are UP, I wonder if he’s foreshadowing a coming disaster. Travels with Puff is a “gentle-adventure” about spirit and the power of thought and taking risks and, of course, the lessons learned while trying to stay on course, as only Richard Bach can express.
I am new to tarot, I found this book very helpful in understanding more about the card and the way it relates to relationships. I liked the question statement that is asked with each card in reference to the relationships.
As time accelerates, the energy of the physical world also accelerates, causing a process of conscious transformation to occur, Pierce begins in Leap of Perception. She calls this inner-outer transformation the Intuition Age, and says this is the future—that has already arrived. The physical world acceleration itself is ushering in a new worldview and perception, one where we perceive more of the non-physical world, and where intuitive perceptions and attention-focusing skills are not only highly valuable, but indicative of the transformation occurring.
To transform our perceptual process, essentially, is to make it more conscious. This is as easy as focusing your attention differently—updating “attention skills” so that we learn to move through the non-physical and physical realities. And while easy to implement, there are stages, symptoms, and a process for transforming perception and making it more conscious. Leap of Perception is a common sense and practical guide to understanding the mechanisms for this: how we “perceive more of the non-physical world, how everything is made of consciousness-and-energy, how everything vibrates at varying frequencies, and how the physical and non-physical are really one unified field.”
As we have come to expect, Pierce distills a complex subject into accessible reading that is accompanied by numerous life practices, so that the book’s content permeates the senses, and reading it is an experience more than an intellectual exercise. This is the final book in her “transformation trilogy,” following her first two books, The Intuitive Way and Frequency, and it is a timely guide for navigating these accelerating times. Fans of Pierce’s work won’t be disappointed.
It’s hard to think of the spiritual teacher who doesn’t recommend the practice of meditation. Its benefits are many, ranging from medically proven reduction of stress to enhancing one’s creativity and effectiveness in daily life. If you have ever tried to meditate and given up because you found yourself fidgeting and thinking of a thousand and one things, this book, Effortless Mind, lets you put the guilt behind you and learn to meditate with ease.
Boris studied meditation around the world, including time spent with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as well as with Amma, the hugging saint, with whom he worked for years, and even taught meditation at her gatherings. It’s not surprising that he picked up a trick or two about meditation for the masses. What I like about his approach is that he starts gently with easily understood visualization techniques, and then goes on to add new layers of practice as you gain experience.
You don’t need to sit on a futon for hours – Ajayan suggests twenty minutes a day, but even five minutes is useful. The visualizations in the book are easy to follow, and you can find a link on Ajayan’s website to download the audio of a guided visualization. If you’ve been thinking that you really should meditate but have been putting it off, this may be the book for you. In this busy world wouldn’t we all benefit from carving out a bit of time for nurturing our inner selves?
Using stories and anecdotes, Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr. gently draws us into a deeper understanding of the ways we lose our power to people and circumstances in our lives. The encouraging thing is that by becoming aware of the choices we make in our beliefs and our relationship to others and to ourselves, we can simply start to make different choices. When we recognize our attachment to the things that don't add true value or happiness to our lives and release those attachments, the truth can indeed set us free.
Our attachments, which usually involve how we define ourselves, limit the scope of what we believe is possible for us. Part of the problem is that it is hard to see ourselves clearly. It is like looking into a "smoky mirror." When we examine them and choose to let go, suddenly our options seem to expand before us. What we are really doing is widening our perspective, and seeing possibilities that were there all along.
This little volume is a helpful and worthy companion to the wonderful books authored by his father, The Four Agreements and The Fifth Agreement.
Best known for his self-help books, Deepak Chopra has now turned to a fiction format for his latest entry into the world of spirituality-themed works. GOD: A STORY OF REVELATION is a series of short stories, fictionalized vignettes featuring a selection of ten visionaries from different cultures and eras.
Chopra presents these stories in chronological order according to the protagonist, from Job to Rabindranath Tagore. Socrates, St. Paul, Rumi, Julian of Norwich, Giordano Bruno, Anne Hutchinson, and Baal Shem Tov round out the subjects that Chopra has chosen to explore in GOD: A STORY OF REVELATION. The point, he explains, is that “God evolves,” and Chopra uses these scenes to imagine how the times, the traditions, and the world in which they live affect the way God is perceived by legendary mystics.
Following each story, Chopra adds his own commentary on what he has just presented. After the tale of Job, he points out that this good man’s life and sorrows show us that virtue alone is no protection from a wrathful God. After the story that features Shankara, Chopra explains that the evolutionary track of the Eastern God bypassed the prophets, Christ, and vengeful Yahweh, and yet still shares a Trinity—Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.
Written with minimal scene-setting details, these stories focus on the effort to understand how the nature of God develops over time and through the eyes and minds of the devout. Readers who are not well-acquainted with the figures in these stories are likely to be lost when confronted with the subtleties of the particular incidents presented, and may find it helpful to learn more about the people and their cultures before diving into GOD: A STORY OF REVELATION.
This is not a ten-step change-your-life book for beach reading but a sophisticated volume best utilized for meditation and contemplation.
A Guide to Zen is a delightful bite-sized book that introduces you to the writings of the Zen Master, Katsuiki Sekida. Sekida began his practice in 1915 and trained at several monasteries in Japan as well as teaching in the Honolulu Zendo and Maui Zendo. His works were published as Zen Training in 1975 in a book containing over 100,000 words.
Marc Allen who has edited Sekida's teachings into this shorter, more accessible format spent six months living and studying with Sekida at the Maui Zendo in Hawaii. It was his job to type up Sekida's writings and he has been deeply influenced by this great master ever since.
The book summarises the essence of Zen practice and continues with a complete course in Zen meditation. It looks at specific Zen practices such as the 'One-Minute Zazen' and comments on a Zen classic, In Search of Missing Ox.
It has been edited to make Zen practices easily understandable and to pass on the teachings of Sekida to a new generation. As Marc Allen says "I pray that this book helps you in your understanding of Zen. I pray that it touches you and affects the quality of your life in countless miraculous ways."
Highly recommended for anyone interested in finding out more about Zen or for students, new and old, who wish to be inspired by Sekida's insight and wisdom.
To lead a happy and successful life we don’t need luck or intelligence or money; we need hope. That’s the premise of this book, written by a Gallup Senior Scientist and world’s leading expert on the psychology of hope. After studying the hope of millions of people Lopez discovered that hope is a choice; it can be learned and spread and it’s essential. You can put your own level of hope to the test by completing a questionnaire, then read on to discover the four core beliefs that the hopeful among us have in common. Taking inspiration from the stories of real people overcoming tough situations, and by following the author’s guidance on how to set effective goals, you’ll learn how to build confidence in a better future by dealing with obstacles, maintaining motivation during setbacks and enlisting support. In the final chapters he plants the seeds for growing “ripples of hope” to improve our world. This isn’t optimistic thinking; it’s using our learnable skills and efforts to bring about good things.
