River to Ocean by Katherine Jansen-Byrkit
At sixteen, suicidal and weighing almost 200 lbs., Katherine Jansen-Byrkit was far from feeling or living expansively. The journey of waking up for her began with a suicide attempt and the long, hard passage between despair and hope. After healing from the inside out, she shares her message. Moving from the inner world to the outer, Katherine provides insights, practices, and inspirational stories as she explores nine aspects of wakefulness.
This river guide reflects the human voyage of finding our way to an awakened self. As with a river traversing steep mountains and winding valleys, our inner and outer worlds can be encumbered by old beliefs, preoccupation with death, or compromised relationships to others, all of which can interfere with living wakefully. In her work, Katherine suggests another possibility: to wake up through our human life, not in spite of it.
ReWrite Your Story by Cledra McCullers Gross
ReWrite Your Story by Cledra McCullers Gross is a story of the author’s journey from tragedy to triumph, of dropping over 70 lbs of physical weight and gaining an entirely new life. Exhausted, defeated, and in a yo-yo cycle of weight gain and loss, Cledra overcame heartbreak, her husband’s infidelity, a devastating miscarriage, and other emotionally overwhelming setbacks that resulted in significant weight gain to discover that the weight she added wasn’t just physical, but emotional, mental, and spiritual. Most books and programs start with what to do with your body. This book starts with what to do with your mind, emotions, and spirit, because the bottom line is that extra physical weight is a reflection of extra weight in other areas of our lives.
I Am Transforming… Creating Meaningful Change Through Empowering and Inspiring Thoughts
by Joy Hemp
The stories Joy Hemp has written in this beautiful and simple book are a perfect illustration of how to use your thoughts and emotion to create empowering change in your life. Paying attention to what you are telling yourself and the universe has a profound effect on what you want to manifest. With a bit of positive emotional energy behind the words you use, you will see what you are affirming begin to appear with joy and ease.
Joy was inspired to develop her first set of positive affirmation cards after attending an inspirational prosperity program. She learned that we all have the power to create our own lives and possess the opportunity to change from the inside out. She designed her first set of cards for her own use, and after experiencing incredible changes in her day-to-day life, knew that others might also benefit from using them. That’s what I love about Joy… her willingness to make positive change in her own life, and her desire to help others transform theirs as well.
We become what we think about. The “I Am… ” affirmations you will find at the end of this book are a wonderful way to set in motion an affirming way to move through your day. They give you focus and clarity about what you want to create and how you want to be, igniting the law of attraction by energizing your heart energy.
Reading this book will take no time, but the impact on your life from using the affirmations will be immense and long-lasting. Affirm what you want and see the universe respond!
