Wishes Fulfilled by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Wishes Fulfilled is designed to take you on a voyage of discovery, wherein you can begin to tap into the amazing manifesting powers that you possess within you and create a life in which all that you imagine for yourself becomes a present fact.”  Hay House                    by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

First, I must disclose that I am relatively new to this-way-of-thinking or this train-of-thought, this spiritual path. Because I know how silly it may sound to some well-educated or well seasoned individuals when I say:

I read this book in a day. This was the first of Dr. Dyer’s that I could so easily absorb and I felt hungry and wanted more, so pushed through to the end. Again, please pardon the oh so common phrases but at the end, I felt that my experience was mind-bending and life-altering.

I have heard of similar events, that Dr. Dyer has personally experienced and writes about, but had not given them much credence. I feel that because this is reported by Dr. Dyer – this opens up a whole new world of thought and possibilities – as was intended.

I am deliberately being vague because I don’t want to spoil, for the next readers, what I thought were some amazing stories and events. They’ll have to choose for themselves if they are to be life altering.

Jesus, A Story of Enlightenment by Deepak Chopra

This is one of three fictional tales by Dr. Chopra, about three of the worlds greatest spiritual leaders: Jesus, Mohammad and the Buddha.

I appreciate how Dr. Chopra depicts Jesus as the not so common young man who is struggling with the strife of his people while on a journey to understand their god.  In this tale, the reader gets a sense of what life challenges could have confronted the young Jesus and the actualizing life events and mentors that helped to shape “The Light of the World”. The best part of this book, for me, was the final chapter, “The Journey Home”  Dr. Chopra’s spiritual lesson.

I found this book entertaining, but I was a little thrown by the contemporary language and slang terms that were used to depict events that happened 2,000 years ago.


Wholeliness – Embracing the Sacred Unity That Heals Our World by Carmen Harra, Ph. D.

Whole-li-ness \ HOL-lee-ness \ n. The condition, state, or quality of being healed, whole, and in harmony with the Divine and all that exists.
From the Old English word hal, meaning “healthy, unhurt, entire.” Hal is also the root word for holy, which means “saintly, godly, or spiritually pure.”
From: Wholeliness by Carmen Harra, Ph.D.

 This is a guide-book written to help the reader “integrate wholeliness” into their life. Part I teaches the reader to recognize the behaviors which block wholeliness. Part II teaches the reader to awaken overlooked connections. Part III teaches the reader to challenge themselves to make critical shifts in perspective. Part IV provides the reader with practical ideas for living a life with wholeliness. Each chapter has 3 exercises (Observe, Pray and Act) to help the reader develop their techniques.

I am fortunate that I have been able to read books written by various authors on the subject of The Source and Wholeliness, etc.  Each author brings a different perspective, and different  spiritual practices to help guide one on their spiritual path. Such a variety allows one to choose what practice best fits into their own lifestyle.  Dr. Harra, I believe, writes from a mystical perspective adding an additional dimension to one’s knowledge base, or learning experience helping to give a new comer a broader perspective than some of the other spiritual guide-books that I’ve read.

The Power of Your Spirit – A Guide to Joyful Living by Sonia Choquette

This paragraph, from the afterward of the book, best summarizes what the author wishes the reader to take away:

“Moving through the four stages of transformation as we come to embrace the authentic power of our Spirit is a dynamic and challenging process. Each phase demands our full attention, evokes our worst fears, challenges our limited beliefs, and demands relentless courage, as we’re asked to grow in ways that aren’t always comfortable or easy.”

This instructional guide is separated into four stages:

  • Awakening your Spirit
  • Discovering your Spirit
  • Surrendering to your Spirit
  • Flowing with your Spirit

I’ve found this to be some of the easiest to understand and implement instruction on Intention that I’ve read. Each chapter has short stories representing experiences of others who have taken this journey to help make it easier to relate to the content. Other categories in each chapter include “Making the Shift” which explains the process one would need to go through; “Asking the Questions” which is a list of questions for the traveler to contemplate and a section “Daily Practice” to begin learning the discipline of Intention. This is a good guide for the novice, but I also think that those who have been studying Intention for sometime will find this an interesting read that will churn up new inspiration.

Archangels 101 by Doreen Virtue

How to Connect Closely with Archangels Michael, Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel and Others for Healing, Protection, and Guidance

I found this to be a very interesting piece of work.  I would categorize this as an encyclopedia of Archangels. Everything that one would need to know about the fifteen most well-known or active Archangels are referenced with an explanation of who they are and how to interact with them. The information about each Archangel is based on teachings from various religious organizations who embrace the idea of Angels.

Besides the beauty of the content of this book, it is beautifully put together with a lot of exquisite angel representations.

Angel Words by Doreen Virtue & Grant Virtue

Visual Evidence of How Words Can Be Angels in Your Life

The first chapter is a fascinating report on the study of the literal power or energy in words and the impact that the negative or positive energy has on life.

The following chapters contain positive affirmations to be used, with an explanation on why one would want to change their thought and speaking patterns and how the positive words work.

This is a very useful tool for those learning to live with intention.

The Dog Who Couldn’t Stop Loving : How Dogs Have Captured Our Hearts for Thousands of Years By Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson

I have this book in queue to read, but in the meantime I wanted to report that my Tucker was one of the “lucky dogs” chosen to participate in the video advertisement for this book. He’s the one in the yellow rain slicker.

Buddha: A Story of Enlightenment by Deepak Chopra

I believe that this is the first in a series of 3 fictional novels that Deepak Chopra wrote, about 3 great Profits; Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad.  This was somewhat of collaboration between Deepak Chopra and his friend Shekhar Kapur, who together imagined the stories of Buddha’s life while on his path to enlightenment.

For me, the author provides a sense of life and culture which helped to make the story more real. And, he wrote about some of the events, from over 80 years of Buddha’s lifetime that would introduce one to Buddha and illustrate his journey from birth through his enlightenment. The author was able to present the ideas behind Buddhism in a simple language so that a novice can understand.
