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.

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.

Are You Tired and Wired? by Marcelle Pick, MSN, OB/GYN NP

“Your Proven 30-Day Program for Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue and Feeling Fantastic Again”

This is another one of those fabulous, must have, books that I like to refer to as owner’s manuals.  Marcelle Pick creates a workbook where she teaches the reader about adrenal fatigue; how one comes to develop the condition and how the body malfunctions.  In Part I, she defines the condition and explains that there are  3 categories that one might fall into. She has also created self assessments to enable the reader to determine their own category. One of the great benefits of this book is to help determine risk, and use the remedies in a proactive manner to help stave off Adrenal Fatigue.

In Part II of the workbook she provides her proven remedies for successful management and reversal of the condition.  These remedies include: nutritional support with suggestions for supplements and meal plans (with recipes included);  exercise and lifestyle changes.

There is additional information for those with Addison’s Disease and Cushing’s Syndrome. And information sections on Allostatic Load, Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load and a full list of resources and references for additional reading.

This is very educational and a workbook that will be referred to often.

Ravenous – a food lover’s journey from obsession to freedom by Dayna Macy

Ravenous is a journal of Dayna Macy’s journey to discover the reasons for her obsession with food, which she feels has caused her difficulties in managing her weight.

She summarizes her experience into 3 groups: Seduction, Communion and Transformation. She shares candid stories of her past and current experiences which have shaped her relationship with food, and her hands on research that she’s done to really allow her to delve deeply into the process from planting to cooking.

In the section about Seduction, she has a one on one encounter with five of her food group weaknesses – actually learning about and experiencing how they are made.

In her section on Communion she writes about her visits to the local farming co-op that feeds her family; some time spent foraging for wild vegetation; preparing her traditional family feast; baking bread; visiting a slaughter house; and revisiting her hometown, where she feels her particular love for food developed.

In the final section on Transformation she writes about her experiences fasting; melding of mind and body through yoga; learning about portion control; and learning about other’s relationships with food through volunteering at a soup kitchen.

I sat down last evening to have a look at this book. Once I began reading this amazing journey, I couldn’t stop until I finished. Danya Macy’s writing flows easily and is deliberately and deliciously colorful. I loved the stories, the honesty, and having the sense that I could relate to her struggle. I applaud her courage for her hands-on approach to becoming more intimate with food. I was not able to read the chapter she wrote on the slaughter of calves but I praise her for having the courage to endure the experience. And as an added treat, she shares some of the recipes from her experiences, at the end of each chapter, so that we can more closely share her experience.

A Course in Weight Loss by Marianne Williamson

21 spiritual lessons for surrendering your weight forever

For Oprah

“This book began and ended as a communication between friends. Oprah Winfrey inspired the book, directed its course, and guided its vision. On a soul level definitely, and in many ways a literary one, this book was a collaborative effort. Every page is a reflection of my affection for and gratitude to her; my hope is that it brings comfort to her as she has brought comfort to so many.

To any reader who might feel that this book is a gift, please know that it was a gift from her. ”   Marianne Williamson

Oprah’s Ultimate Favorite Things 2010

“What’s the connection between weight loss and spirituality? New York Times best-selling author Marianne Williamson answers that question in A Course in Weight Loss, featuring 21 spiritual lessons for surrendering your weight forever. The lessons in this book will help you shift your relationship with your body and focus not on how quickly you lose weight but on how holistically you lose weight. “We all know that it’s a spiritual issue to help you get your mind, body and spirit aligned,” Oprah says. Get ready to begin a new relationship with food…and with yourself.”  from Oprah.com

This is one of those amazing books, published by Hay House, that cannot be a quick, easy read. It is meant to be broken down into lessons, pondered and absorbed over a few weeks or months.  Choose a few family members or close friends to create a discussion/support group to enhance the benefits.

A side note about Hay House books. This is yet another beautifully printed book. The cover is what I believe to be Oprah’s favorite, apple green, color with gold toned embossing.

The Power of Intention, Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

This book makes a fabulous training manual or workbook for those interested in understanding the concept of the Source and Intention. A person could read through this in a few days, but I would suggest that they schedule some time, possibly 1 chapter per week or month, to actually study and ponder each chapter’s material and exercises. If one is studying this concept with the idea of putting these practices into place, also consider partnering with family and close friends, a sort of study group, to help ensure that those bonds stay strong through a mutual understanding of this journey.

This particular edition of this book, the Gift Edition, is breathtakingly beautiful due to the art work (illustrations by Jui Ishida), the brilliant colors and the soft glossy texture of the paper. This makes the case for “real books” vs “e-books”. There is no way that this sort of sensuous (b : producing or characterized by gratification of the senses – © 2010 Merriam-Webster, Incorporated) experience can be reproduced in digital form. I thank Dr. Dyer and Hay House for this amazing gift, which I consider one of my treasures.
