The 21st Century Revolution - A Call to Greatness

By Bruce Nixon

Introduction

"It's OK for you. We and our children will have to face your generation's irresponsibility way beyond 2050."

A sixth-former.

As a parent, grandparent and fellow world citizen, that is my starting point.

We face the greatest challenges in human history. This book is for people all over the world who want to create a happier, fairer, more peaceful world and prevent environmental catastrophe. It is for people who want to be well-informed. The book will help readers make sense of the situation, find solutions, and decide how they want to participate in bringing about the radical changes that are needed. There is a widespread collapse of confidence in current politics and economics. The challenges are enormous, but so are the opportunities. Change is in the wind all over the world. Change springs out of vision and hope. This book will provide both. When great shifts come, they tend to come fast; the old order collapses quickly. Remember the fall of the Berlin Wall.

There is widespread anti-establishment sentiment. The economic policies of the past 35 years are being challenged, especially by younger people; so is the way we have done politics for the past 70 years. Yet radical new policies, large-scale events, and campaigns involving thousands often go unreported in the mainstream media. There is so much positive news the conventional media doesn't give us. That will be remedied in this book.

It is now 23 years since the Kyoto Protocol was adopted in Kyoto, Japan on 11th December 1997. Yet decisive action has not been agreed or taken. The 21st annual session of the International Climate Change Conference is to be held in Paris from the 30th November to 11th December 2015. There must be a breakthrough. Sir David King, UK's Special Representative for Climate Change, whilst hopeful of this session, says climate change is the "biggest threat facing mankind at this moment" and reaching agreement is "more critical to the future of our civilization than 1945", when the UN was created following two World Wars.

This year also marks the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. There are growing calls for radical reform of outdated democratic institutions, and a different way of doing politics. Reform has been obstructed for decades and, in some cases, for over a century. The determination of the suffragist women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries provides a lesson for us. They won the vote. We need to win a lot more.

As George Monbiot says:
"Society moves from the margins, not the centre."

I compare our situation today with the dark days before World War Two. Then, Britain faced a Nazi invasion, a complete takeover of Europe, and world domination. Today, the challenge is even greater: the catastrophic effects of climate change and destruction of the ecological system. In 1940, George Orwell wrote:

"The initiative will have to come from below. … I only know that the right men will be there when the people say they really want them, for it is movements that make leaders and not leaders' movements. And … A real shove from below will accomplish it."
Why I Write - The English Revolution

And so it was and the War was won.

Today, we are again confronted with leadership failure. Leadership will be a major theme throughout this book. The challenges are great. Yet ecologically and economically illiterate political leaders are failing to tackle them. The obsession with unsustainable growth, measured by GDP (Gross Domestic Product), on a finite planet we are warming up is madness. It will lead to growing violence, resource wars and migration. Instead of GDP, we need wellbeing as our measure of progress.

A great, big scam robs us and threatens our survival. In 2008, the Western world suffered the worst financial crisis since the Wall Street Crash of 1929. Its primary causes were irresponsible banking and too much lending and borrowing. The recession that followed soon led to austerity policies implemented to varying degrees throughout Europe.

Neoliberal ideology (explained in Chapter 5) has dominated economic policy for 35 years. It has profoundly affected our values and how we treat our fellow human beings. Blatant greed at the top is shocking. Corporate responsibility has become an oxymoron. In this environment, it's hard for companies and their leaders to be responsible and survive.
In the UK, the financial crisis gave the Tory-led Coalition a golden opportunity to decimate the public sector. Austerity, based on ideology, not on sound economics, was forced through by an illiterate government without a mandate to do so. Deep cuts will continue under the new administration. These hindered and continue to hinder recovery and deficit reduction. Every day there has been news of the dire consequences of counterproductive cuts. Whilst the rich got richer, and doubled their wealth, average, real incomes fell by 8%, compared with 2007. For those in work, they still have not recovered. Ordinary people who create wealth are robbed in ways I shall explain.

Similar policies have been implemented in Europe with similar results, adversely affecting young people, particularly in Greece and Spain. Fundamentally, they are the same policies imposed on poor and developing countries by Western institutions for decades.

Greece, with its highly dysfunctional economy in urgent need of reform, is the current most disastrous example: a combination of irresponsible lending followed by insistence on debt repayment and austerity led to deep depression and 25% unemployment. Youth unemployment is 60% (50% in Spain). Finally, in the Greek referendum, 61% of voters decisively rejected a further international bailout from the Troika (IMF, EU and European Central Bank) with continuing austerity attached.

Austerity is like draining a patient's blood to purge the evil humours once thought to cause disease. Of course, all the bloodletting did was to make the patient weaker and more likely to succumb. Luckily, most of us are made of stronger stuff. But millions of people are needlessly suffering; it's a shameful waste of human potential.

These policies will continue unless active citizens demand change.

In the UK, we've allowed ourselves to be conned (helped by campaign advisers, some with dubious connections) and ruled by an out of touch political class, in the pockets of the Big Banks, Big Business, and the super- rich, who, because of dwindling party membership, that used to be millions, fund their campaigns.

"Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."
George Orwell in Why I Write - The English Revolution.

We need a very different agenda. A system based on short-term self-interest rather than generosity of spirit has no future in the 21st century world. The same applies to foreign policy. The recent election campaigning in the UK was based on fear. Instead, we need a vision that uplifts and engages people in a great, new endeavour that creates a prosperous society in which everyone benefits.

As Yvonne Roberts says: "A good state would give each of us the chance to thrive. A dynamic, modern country should not treat its citizens as passive clients, but as agents for a greater change… An opportunity for a genuinely participatory, challenging, creative and active citizenship requires something different from the state than the retail politics of selling 'the offer' to the electorate."

Neal Lawson, Chair of Compass, says: "The mission of government should be to unleash the energy and potential of everyone to transform their workplaces, communities and lives."

There is a growing awakening throughout the world. The story of Syriza in Greece has much in common with Spain's Podemos and Scotland's Independence Campaign. Jeremy Corbyn's surprise bid to lead and transform the UK Labour party is attracting rapidly growing support, especially from younger people. It is part of the widespread rejection of the economic policies of the past 35 years and distaste for the behaviour of political leaders. More is to come.

People are realising that capitalism and democracy in their current forms are failing us. There is a growing rebellion against the current order. Younger people, angry about the injustice of their situation, are opting out of conventional politics and exploring new ways of bringing about change, often bottom up, and creating new businesses. Politics as we know it is a sideshow. The mainstream is happening outside party politics and the daily news. There is a huge discourse on the internet that many people are unaware of. All over the world, people are seeking alternatives. You will read about it in this book.

The need for visionary leadership at every level is greater than ever before. Patriarchal, top-down leadership is obsolete. People want enabling leadership that releases human creativity and bottom-up change. But major transformation will not take place unless many more people get involved and demand change. Far more pressure is needed.
Depending on the choices we make, collectively and individually, we could be at the beginning of a benign revolution or a breakdown of society leading to extremism. This particularly applies to people who feel excluded. Young women and men travel to Syria; others drop out.

I listen to a lot of people in all walks of life in many countries (Chapter 1). What they told me inspired me to write this book. Many are disheartened, angry about the current situation, and feel powerless. Following the results of the recent UK General Election, they are even angrier and more disheartened. It is outrageous that a first past the post voting system results in an unrepresentative parliament, and a Tory government with less than 37% of the vote, representing 24% of the population, continues to inflict extreme policies upon the nation without a mandate. If they do not take this into account, there will be a lot of strife.

Already numerous demonstrations are taking place; many more are planned.
Until nations have a properly representative government, things are unlikely to change significantly for the better.

A lot more of us need to get angry. Anger should never be acted out, but it provides the passion and energy needed for constructive change. The fact is: we need a non-violent revolution - not just in the UK but all over the West. We should be grateful that we can protest, usually without being imprisoned, tortured or shot. Also, we have the rule of law.

"The future has already arrived. It's just not evenly distributed yet." William Gibson
This future could bring a massive transfer of power away from the grip of government and big business to ordinary people and their local communities, if we choose to make it happen. Being cynical or pessimistic won't help.

The 21st Century Revolution is already happening. Every century has its revolutions, political and industrial. The first two industrial revolutions were based on coal, then oil and gas. The third may be based on solar power, hi-tech, bioscience, the World Wide Web, personal and collective empowerment, and the need to respond to ecological disaster.

In his book, An Optimist's Tour of the Future, Mark Stevenson gives an exciting account of emerging scientific and technological innovations likely to transform our lives and the world as we know it. Many are benign. Undoubtedly, many of these developments will bring enormous benefits, particularly in the area of human health. They could reduce costs and devolve power. However, I am cautious; they could result in the even greater concentration of power and wealth in the hands of the few, and further alienation of human beings from nature of which we are part. And these developments will not help unless we are determined to resolve economic inequality, entrenched power structures and act on the urgent need to conserve and sustain a living planet. The danger is we'll be deluded by techno-fixes.

Systems thinking. Central to this book is the idea that the immense challenges we face require whole system change, not partial fixes. Everything is interconnected; we are part of one whole; we are part of nature; we are all one. Systems thinking is the process of understanding how systems influence one another within a whole. It is an approach to problem solving in which problems are seen as parts of an overall system. Thus, rather than reacting to specific parts, as political leaders tend to, with the danger creating unintended consequences, we need to look at the whole system and identify the fundamental issues before creating solutions.

So Part One is a whole system analysis of the current situation. Part Two offers a new, better future, and explores how all of us can make it happen. It includes comprehensive proposals for addressing:
· Climate Chaos and destruction of the eco-system
· Economic injustice
· Resolving conflict without violence
· Radical reform of broken and corrupt, top-down politics
· And, that key part, what you, the reader, will do
 

All of which form an inter-related system.

Whilst many of these proposals call for international collaboration, some are specific to the UK, yet equally relevant to other nations. Countries learn from each other.

The next few years are likely to be full of surprises. In the UK, the voting system has deprived many people of their wishes. Of almost 31 million people who voted in the recent General Election on the 7th May, 19 million voted for losing candidates. That's 63% of voters who backed a candidate that didn't win, making the majority of voters feel unrepresented. Out of 650 winning candidates, 322 (49%) got less than 50% of the vote.

The Westminster Village is discredited. That was the clear message of the Scottish referendum. People will vote if they believe it will make a difference. An unprecedented 97% registered to vote in the referendum and 84.6% voted, including 16 to 17-year-olds, for the first time. It was the highest vote in the UK since the introduction of universal suffrage. This has increased the pressure for reform. 44.7% voted for independence. As I write, elections are to be held in Spain, Poland, Denmark, Finland, Portugal and Estonia. Debt and austerity have played a major part in creating a desperate situation in Greece. The Greek election was a strong vote of no confidence in the current economic doctrine. At the time of writing, the results of negotiations between the Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, and the EU are unknown but are likely to be far-reaching.

We need a great power shift - a peaceful revolution. A revolution is swelling at the moment, as evidenced by widespread and growing protests. They will grow. I hope this book will give many people the desire to participate at an epic moment in human history. Currently, power is held by elites who will obstruct anything they think adversely affects their interests. We need a shift of power to people and communities, enabled by a new kind of slimmer state. We, seven billion people, need to use our power; otherwise little will change.

This book is a call to ordinary people to be great. Through your relationships with others, you can help create the critical mass required to bring about this great transformation. We can be sure revolution will come from the power and creativity of millions of people. If you are not already involved, I invite you to become part of it. If you are part of it, I hope reading this book will give you even greater power. Being well-informed gives people power; it's essential for an effective democracy. People won't be well-informed if they rely on old media. I endeavour to make sense of the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced. I describe the radical changes that are needed and suggest what you can do to help.
In the Resources section at the end of the book, I offer you many different ways in which you can play your part. There are suggestions at the end of some chapters. References and links are provided conveniently in the text, rather than at the end of the book.

Hyperlinks are provided in the e-book version. I have quoted from writings that I believe are particularly useful or articulate, thus introducing you to people you may wish to follow, and sources of further information.

More reviews for The 21st Century Revolution - A Call to Greatness

"This is a book jam-packed with solutions - hurrah! And, it all starts with the self; great change calls on each of us to step up and respond to the call of greatness. Whether it be changing our politics, our monetary system, our laws, our business ethics - at the heart of each resides something truly great. Bruce Nixon brings to life not only what is possible, what is already emerging, and also what could yet come into being."
Polly Higgins, Barrister, International Ecocide law advocate.

"This is an amazing book not just because it tells us what's wrong with our society and how to put it right - but because it is full of hope and love for people and our planet. The world is a better place for The 21st Century Revolution - A Call to Greatness, and its author, Bruce Nixon the book inspires me to help make the 21st century revolution happen."
Neal Lawson, Chair of Compass

"The greatest problem of our age is disempowerment - part of a political project to shift ordinary people out of power and out of politics, to leave them content to judge their identity by the brand of smart phone they rent. Bruce Nixon lays out the fullest dimension of this disempowerment and its fatal consequences. But he also outlines a way out, a way for all of us to become real citizens in a real democracy. The call to greatness not only refers to our own personal liberation from the shackles of disempowerment, but to the scale of the collective endeavour it will allow us to embark on saving our species. It doesn't get much bigger." Nick Dearden, Director, Global Justice Now

"Read this excellent analysis of what's gone wrong, take heart, and fight for positive change!" Yvonne Roberts, Journalist and Fellow of the Young Foundation

"Don't despair - read this book! We can have a new economic system that works for people and planet, if enough of us meet the current (huge) challenges head-on and summon the greatness that each of us are capable of. Bruce Nixon brilliantly sets out a course of action and hope." Stewart Wallis, Executive Director, New Economics Foundation

"We need to be both planning for a better world and actively setting out a route towards it. That needs the input of the many and the democratic focus of this book is very much welcome, as is its understanding that our economic, social and environmental crises and the solutions to them are interlinked." Natalie Bennett, Leader, Green Party of England and Wales

"Bruce highlights the harmful consequences of our debt-based money system and the need to change the way money is created." Ben Dyson, Founder of Positive Money

There are many books and courses available on the subject of leadership - a role which takes place in every aspect of our lives. Like spirituality, it is a subject that can only be developed through experience - not learned from an article or book.

However, written information can provide guidance as to what to look for, and what to avoid!

In our society, we have two approaches to our leaders, either we idolize them - or we reject them! Everyone wants to be a leader, but no-one wants to be led! Though many would like to live without leaders, in reality, we can make no progress without them! The aim of a leader is task orientated and to further the group's development - not their own. Leadership needs to be conducted most especially when the members are not making progress alone. The position of team 'leader' in a small group is also that of manager, teacher, caretaker, facilitator, steward, mentor, guide and coach! A good leader's job is broad and requires considerable sacrifice, expertise and dedication. If anyone thinks this work is easy, they will be convinced otherwise when they read the following list of skills and award marks for each!

Tasks of the leader: anticipating problems in advance; arbitrating between people; articulating what has not been spoken; assigning tasks; assisting others to get the best from their own talents; building strengths and confidence; chastising when appropriate; coaching; consoling; defining the indefinable; demonstrating skills; developing abilities and opportunities; eliminating hindrances; emphasizing and maximizing strengths; empowering and encouraging; ensuring safety; evaluating; focusing on tasks; identifying needs; imparting knowledge; implementing changes; increasing expertise, awareness and competency; listening; maintaining order, ethos, standards, values and boundaries; managing and mentoring; moderating during conflict; monitoring; motivating; negotiating; observing; organizing; preparing; preserving what is good; problem solving; protecting; recognizing opportunities and dangers; refereeing in arguments; reinforcing skills; reviewing; setting an example; supporting those in need; stabilizing the group; taking necessary decisions; and helping all members get the best from their communal activities.

Effective leaders lead by example and should be applauded for their capacity to fulfil many responsibilities with calmness and goodwill. Theirs is the most prominent position within the group, and therefore the leader is usually scrutinized and criticized more than any other member. A leader often suffers from the petty jealousies of others who do not wish for responsibility or commitment. A leader is usually held accountable when things go wrong, so it is not a role to envy!
A leader maintains the smooth running of meetings and implements changes in order to maintain good practice. A leader should also facilitate, and stimulate an increase in the depth of work without pressurizing anyone. A leader often looks after organisational and planning matters, and is aware of spiritual influences and time factors. A leader also has responsibility for the cohesion and collaboration of the membership. Most leaders will fail at some stage to accomplish all these requirements and should be given the group's support for their attempts to do the job to the best of their ability.

Autocratic and self-serving styles of leadership are common in our society, and occur where one person manipulates or bullies everyone else, misusing power until resentful members rebel. Gentler members who are eager for progress end up carrying those who are overly ambitious for personal power - and are good at getting it. Resentment against self-centred leaders is therefore justifiable. An alternative to autocratic leadership is that of rotational leadership as this gives everyone the chance to take this high profile position within the group. If members voluntarily choose certain job responsibilities within the group, this is beneficial. When one person has held a key position for a given length of time, another should be appointed to keep the workload circulating, so that there is an opportunity to be involved with different activities. There are ways of sharing responsibilities fairly, such as by volunteering, by random selection (either spinning a coin or drawing straws), by rote, or alphabetical order.

When a leader is ineffective, the members will suffer, and conflicts will arise and will result in members resigning. Sometimes leadership is not required and the group can be self-facilitating. If a leader does not perform the tasks of leadership, any member can take the initiative and organise what needs to be done, not by being competitive, but co-operative. In groups where no leader has been appointed, one usually emerges.

It is often difficult, without prior experience, to be a fair and aware, yet firm leader. The answer is in mutual negotiation, cooperation and initiative with the whole group building a strong multi-tasking team. Compromise and co-operation are vital parts of the learning process and sharing experiences are part of the learning process. This is a service of self-sacrifice that we offer to others on the same path as ourselves. Everyone can be pro-active and take initiatives on an equal basis with consideration to everyone, even those not present. Questions should be phrased; "Can I suggest…?", "I would like…", "I need…", or "Shall I…?"

Small problems may seem nit-picking, but if one waits, it may be too late to restore stability. A good slogan is 'small errors grow large'. Lack of quality leadership requires a change of leadership! Those who respond well to authority figures show a mark of emotional maturity. Lightworkers recognise the importance of inter-dependency and task sharing. We also appreciate that every member has something of value to offer. It is important to be able to feel comfortable in both roles; that of being led, and that of leader.

All parts make up the whole, and all parts are necessary and have their place. If there is personal incompatibility within the group, interpersonal issues can be resolved by examining what each person expects, needs and wants from the group, and from their leader. Each specific problem could be brought to Spirit for resolution through meditation and prayer for guidance. Adjustments to the method, style and content of the sessions may also be required and expectations and assumptions also need addressing.

Leadership is a position of service but because leaders usually do more work than anyone else does, they sometimes feel the post deserves some form of remuneration. The need for good leadership is present in all aspects of our life. In large groups, it is almost impossible to make consistent progress without a regular leader.

Most groups work through differences and difficult times, and successful leaders take the pressure off themselves by sharing their power intelligently with others. Small, leaderless groups particularly thrive on the basis of communal responsibility. Democratic leadership can only ensure power for the majority over the minority, even if the minority is one person and the majority, two. Where there is dissent, we aim at a win/win scenario, wherever possible.

It is useful to bear in mind that hierarchies frequently abuse power. When this happens, people form alliances, and begin to compete, some might scapegoat vulnerable people in their midst. If an organisation is corrupt at the top, it will, without doubt, be corrupt at the bottom! However, organisations that are wholesome at the top might still be corrupt at the bottom - unless they have an adherence to rules and consistent monitoring of ethical standards. I mention this because every small group still has many of the problems associated with larger institutions. The ultimate aim of life itself is to increase our capacity to care for others and to develop our sense of responsibility to those in need and we can do this in whatever environment we may take part in, such as family, community and work groups.

In emergencies, a majority vote can be taken. The circle is a combined venture and a valuable learning experience for everyone. There are many ways in which all members can be active and can add to their knowledge and skills. We are all responsible for creating the best groups possible, and to be the best we can be within them. Whenever a group functions badly, change is necessary. When all else fails, the old order should be disbanded and a new order formed of fresh, new members.

Events Psychology -
How to Understand Yourself and Other People


by Dr Silvia Hartmann

Paperback with 298 pages: £24.97 ISBN 978-1873483657 Published by DragonRising Publishing. Visit: http://silviahartmann.com/
 

Dr Silvia Hartmann is a researcher and innovative therapist who has extensive interest in modern psychology. She is at the forefront of the development of brand new therapeutic methods.

Every major event, both good and bad, results in inner self talk when patterned beliefs are formed. Events Psychology is a simple, person centred technique which uncovers past trauma that can be used by therapists, counsellors and healers.

In this training manual and I found it extremely useful and highly progressive, Dr Hartmann details her Events Psychology method in this book and provides a series of questions, to focus on past events and to gently approach painful memories so that relaxation can be achieved. These key events are then used as stepping stones, to turn negative into positive, and bring forth a healthy resolution. The introduction of new healing events to counter-balance the negative can then be introduced.

Events Psychology, in its initial stages, is easy to conduct and can be used by anyone to understand their own motivations and those of others. The later stages of the method, which focus on the creation of a matrix, require greater understanding and depth. Other aspects of Dr Hartmann's work are The Genius Symbols, Project Sanctuary, EmoTrance and the Harmony Program. Dr Hartmann is originally from Germany and is an author and professional speaker and the Chair of The Association for Meridian & Energy Therapies. Her work specialises in energy psychology but she has written a novel under the name Nick Starfields. She is also involved with the 'Naked Writer Project' where online readers could see her novel, titled 'The Dragon Lords' in the process of being written and make suggestions.

The Gentle Way: A Self-Help Guide for Those Who Believe in Angels

Mental Illness By Numbers - The Mystery of Mental Illness Uncovered

By Kirsi Sahlberg
Have you ever wondered why people have low self-esteem or self-confidence?

Why we have trouble managing our weight or why we have commitment issues?

What makes us addicted to food or prone to substance abuse?

Have you ever wondered why people are aggressive, inhumane, violent, dishonest, humourless, rude, short-tempered, irresponsible, irrational, overprotective, interfering, unapproachable, narrow-minded or controlling?

What makes us emotionally cold, emotionally unstable, hypersensitive, anxious, chronically depressed, unfocused, hyperactive, impulsive, compulsive, obsessive, anorectic, bulimic, autistic, hyper, manic, schizophrenic or paranoid?

The answer is: Our unbalanced birth and name numbers.

Mental illness has been a mystery for a long time, because the energy, which creates our feelings and behaviour patterns, is invisible. It becomes visible when we use numerology and find out our personal numbers, the energies they represent and the feelings and the behaviour patterns they create. Our personal numbers and the different energies they represent act as triggers for our feelings and the behaviour patterns those feelings create. A quality of a number determines the quality of the energy it represents. The quality of a personal number is aquality in our personality:
 

If the number is unstable and irrational, we are mentally unstable and irrational.

If the number is stable and rational, we are mentally stable and rational.
 

The book contains chapters about ADHD, ADD, Alcohol And Drug Addiction, Aggression, Autism, Anorexia, Bulimia, Bipolar Disorder, OCD and Schizophrenia. In each chapter Kirsi demonstrates how and why these mental "illnesses" and behavioural problems occur in people.

"Mental Illness By Numbers" clarifies and uncovers the real reasons behind mental health problems and guides you, the reader of this book, how to calculate your own personal numbers and at the same time, learn about your personality and discover the numbers behind the possible mental health or personality problems.

Write Therapy

Using the power of writing to heal the past
and create the life you want

by Christina Christou

Available from Amazon Click here

 

What if you could write yourself a better life - who would you be? Where would you live? Who would be there with you?

It is possible to create the life you want by writing the life you want. To do this you need to tap into your imagination, even using metaphor to help the creative juices flow. For example, if you want to be ridiculously rich living in an amazing house with the most handsome man, instead of just writing that, you could write it as a fairy story:

'I am a beautiful, rich princess with long, golden, flowing locks living in a magnificent castle in the magical land of Dreamland. I live with my handsome prince who adores me bringing me special gifts every day to show me his love.'

You might be thinking to yourself, why would I write what I want as a far-fetched fairy story?

Well, you must know the old saying seeing is believing, in the world of manifestation, this is reversed and it becomes believing is seeing. This is based on the premise that what we think of the most must manifest under the law of attraction.

Ok, I feel I am misleading you somewhat as writing a fairy story does not guarantee that you become a beautiful princess or even live in a magnificent castle or that a handsome prince comes to your rescue.

What writing a fairy story does is get you into the zone of wishful thinking. It allows you to be free with your dreams. When you dream then you can create whatever your heart desires - or start making steps to doing so.

It is not enough to dream though. In order to attract what you want you need to let go of limiting beliefs. We attract what we think of the most, so if you want to be like a beautiful princess but think that you are an ugly duckling, you will attract more 'evidence' to prove to yourself that you are that ugly duckling (not that others think that).

So the 'believing is seeing' thought pattern needs to be applied. Difficult when all you feel is plain and ordinary. Writing a fairy story is one way you can get into the creating zone but to create something concrete you need to tap into good feelings.
Good feelings are anything that makes you feel good without much effort. For example: spending time with a pet; looking at clouds; being in nature; spending time with people that make you feel good. When you feel good you are in a much better place to attract good things - like Attracts like.

Write Therapy is a little book full of tools and techniques that help release the old limiting beliefs in order to allow what we want to manifest. Releasing self-defeating thoughts allows you the space to focus on the positives in your life.

One technique to focus on the positives is to write your gratitudes - write what you are grateful for. For example: the ability to breathe, being grateful for the people in your life, being grateful for your health. Writing down your gratitudes not only helps you with your mood but keeps your focus on the present.

When you are focused on the present you are more able to create. Ruminating on the past keeps you stuck. If you are stuck you cannot create anything new. You will in effect be going round in circles, creating more of the same.

If you want your life to change you need to change. It is like dancing an old dance using the same old steps. The way to dance a new dance is to learn new steps - one step at a time.

Most times we are not aware that our thoughts are negative. We assume that voicing our opinion about how dreadful something or someone is, is just exercising our freedom of speech. It is exercising your freedom of speech, but in the world of manifestation, you are also attracting more evidence to voice your opinions and miss out the golden nuggets.

For example, if you talk about how glum the weather is, you will miss the parting of the clouds and the shining sun. If you notice the bad behaviour of the child you will miss how polite he is to your elderly neighbour.

Write down how you talk about yourself to others. Choose a few roles you play, i.e. Parent, employee, friend.

What are you focused on? It is quite revealing. Ask a close friend to tell you what they think and see if what you think of yourself matches with their opinion.

Another way of seeing what you are focused on is by seeing the symbolism in your life. What does that mean? Well, in the world of thought that believes that all is one and nothing is random, symbolism is like a mirror showing us what is going on inside.

For example, your teenage son's room is a mess: crisps and coke cans strewn across the bedroom floor, dirty clothes jumbled with clean ones ... you get the picture! Isn't that just teenage behaviour? Yes it can be but for the use to explain symbolism, being a teenager is a mixed up time, everything is jumbled up!

Another example, using inanimate objects this time. You have leaking taps. They are dripping, dripping, dripping all day and night. Water is being lost, this is probably costing you money as well. You call out the plumber who fixes it giving you some advice on how to look after your taps. Symbolically water is energy and emotions. Where are you losing energy? You call a plumber - could that be the doctor? Do you need to visit a doctor for their diagnosis or just check on your energy levels.

Everything and everyone reflects something in ourselves. Nothing is random! Using techniques to release limiting beliefs and focusing on your blessings puts you in a better place to create a better life.

Positive Affirmations - words or phrases said in the present - can help the process of manifestation. You want good health, affirm you have good health. You want a wonderful partner, affirm you have a wonderful partner. You want lots of money, affirm you have lots of money.

It does feel strange at first to say something or write something you want as if you already have it. The point of this is that the Universe brings to you what you focus on the most. So wanting a partner, the focus is on the wanting, therefore you will just carry on wanting.

Within Write Therapy, you will find all the above tools and techniques which can help you heal your past, by releasing self-limiting thoughts, and create the life you want. It is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to take control of their healing and their life.

HIGHER REALITY THERAPY - Nine Pathways to Inner Peace

By Anthony Falikowski

ISBN 978 1 84694 257 0
Published by O Books in Paperback 354 pages £14.99
Visit: http://falikowski.com/falikowski.com/Professor_Bio.html

The psychiatrist, William Glasser developed Reality Therapy in the US in the mid 1960s and it was successful especially for those who did not respond to more conventional methods of therapy. The approach, mainly based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) focuses on negotiated methods to create improvements in current behaviour. 'Higher' Reality Therapy is an eclectic approach to a similar goal of problem solving. Reality Therapy, as devised by William Glasser is criticised rather severely but taken as the basic premise and improved upon to create 'Higher' Reality Therapy.

The author, Anthony 'Tony' Falikowski, is a full time professor of Philosophy and Human Relations and a Graduate of the University of Toronto. He holds degrees is psychology and philosophy and is a behaviour education specialist. His previous books 'Moral Philosophy for Modern Life', 'Mastering Human Relations' and 'Exploring Philosophy' have been widely acclaimed.

This book includes wisdom teachings of Eastern and Western spiritual traditions (such as A Course in Miracles, with a model for understanding personality called the Enneagram). The Enneagram is a method of assessing and categorising nine personality types and the author describes each of the nine, along with how each type can become unhealthy and how they can express their basic character in a healthy way. The excerpts from A Course in Miracles produces a book that highlights possible personal problems and offers advice on how to avoid difficulties by developing other strategies, such as overcoming egocentric propensities.

At first I didn't recognise any characters within Falikowski's Enneagram model. However, as I was reading, I suddenly realised that Anthony Falikowski was describing several characters who I knew well but had not seen these elements in their personality. Out came my marker pen and I was underlining almost every sentence. While I was in the groove, I went on to enjoy every page. I think I will return to this book and will keep it on my bookshelf for reference. Though I might not recognise many work colleagues, friends and people in the public eye, I will enjoy the interesting general wisdom that the book provides. Recommended.

Bringing YOU back to YOU!
 


Released on the 5th July 2014 which was the 20th anniversay of The Awakening detailed in Awarded By Angels by Angel Alison Ward.

To order the book click here

Here are testimonials for the book:
Bringing YOU back to YOU!
and the author Angel Alison Ward's work

I'd like to offer the following heartfelt testimonial:
I have known Alison for some years now and can say that her mentoring, friendship and support have been instrumental in my growth and life journey.

I now realise that for many years I was not allowing myself to see who I really was and what I could achieve by loving myself as deeply as I love others.

Alison has never waivered from her teachings and her latest book, Bringing You Back To You brings everything together in what I now use as a reference book; I keep the book close-by and will often re-read.

The gift of 'Letting Go' really helps me focus and the F*** IT technique, well this instantly stops me 'sweating the little stuff' and always makes me feel liberated!

Life, and people can often unexpectedly throw you for a loop and if you sit and take time for yourself (and I mean absorb yourself in you) them the answers are all there.

I will not look back and wonder why I was blinkered before I will only appreciate how magical life is if we LET IT BE.

Bless You -
Gillian Hubbleday


Beautifully written book from the heart. Read this book and let Alison be your guiding light! Louise Presley-Turner Personal Growth Expert and Author


I used to think I was fairly together....then I read BYBTY!!! Wow, a light bulb moment. So many things made so much sense, and yes, it is so obvious that if you put your mind to it PROPERLY, you can change your life positively for the better. I have taken on board so many of the things Alison has written about. It is punchy, funny, and so enlightening. I will be using the techniques in my daily life. Alison has been a great help to me since meeting her over three years ago. We met under a very difficult time for me with regards to my health but since my full recovery Alison has taught me not to look back, to understand why it happened and most importantly to move on. This book has sealed the deal further, thanks Alison Ward, love you xxx'


Bringing you back to you' is an amazingly written and helpful guide to discovering your true self. I loved how simplistic and enjoyable the book was to read (it often made me chuckle) and how the techniques were so easy to practice and follow on a day-to-day basis. It really is incredible what these simple methods can do, such as writing in a journal and what effective solutions it undercovers. It has particularly taught me how important it is to take a step back, think, breathe and connect before making rash decisions that can often be detrimental.

Knowing Alison in person, when reading the book I could almost hear her saying it aloud, which reflects how much genuine thought and care and above all LOVE has been put into writing this book. Being 17 comes a lot of stress with exams and not only this, general self-insecurities, self-doubts and often bad decision making. I can honestly say that teenagers would benefit hugely from reading this book not only to bring out the best in themselves and their decisions but also to feel confident, nurtured and loved (and a little more chilled out!)I feel immense gratitude in being fortunate enough to know Alison and all the help she has given me, I am so pleased that it is now available to a far greater audience through this life changing book.

Lots of love Grace xxxxxx
 
 
This book is beautifully written. It makes you ask questions of yourself, and encourages you to look deep within your soul. This may sound so scary - but throughout, you feel that you are being totally supported, nurtured and understood by the Author, Alison Ward, (even if you have never met Alison, her kind nature and encouragement and passion shines through).

This is a practical, often humorous and always down-to-earth handbook, which gives you practical techniques to start your journey to discovering who you REALLY are! I can recommend it.

Loads of love Sarah Derrington xxxx
 

Quite simply, this is an effective, life changing book which by way of a clear step by step guide, gives you the necessary tools to return to your true self, therefore enabling you to live the life you truly desire and deserve.  It comes from 20 years of Alison 'living it' - IT WORKS!!

Mandy Feeney
 

We all have a story. A story filled with pain, happiness, laughter love and fear (and everything in-between). I needed, I craved for a change. My negative behaviours , my lack of self, created destructive patterns throughout my life and low and behold the ego was my "best friend" I enjoyed her aggressive company, her negative, sly and condescending behaviours. When the most recent chapter in my life demolished me to the core I did what I always did, I ran. I fled. I wanted "me" back but was doing nothing to get her back! I met Alison's son and we became good friends, my paths toward Alison and her healing and soothing became intertwined. Every time I read her words, or was in her presence I started to feel like me. You must absorb the words but truly act upon them. Do not act and pretend. Listen, absorb and reflect.There are lots of interesting chapters in the book and if you struggle with a few just go back to them at a later date. The reinforcement of good habits is the trick to letting this book help you! I'm at the start of my journey with the Angel but it feels like the right one!

Nisha
 
 
I love the simplicity of the tools and techniques that Alison has offered in this book. The elements about the ego really resonated with me. I always associated the ego with self love and now I realise that it is quite the opposite and that the self doubt that has plagued me over the years is my naughty ego playing games with me! Well guess what? Thanks to Alison I have learned how to play right back and almost instantly I have felt my doubts and fears melting right away. I have to make a big presentation at work in front of lots of strangers and I had been scrabbling around trying to find everything I could that had been written by others on the subject to use in my presentation. However, at the same time, I was reading "Bringing You Back to You" and I suddenly realised through Angel Alison's wise words that I didn't need to worry about the the opinions of others on the subject. I was able to write the presentation using my own words and opinions and that they were worthwhile and worth hearing. People are actually interested to hear what I think on the subject!!
 
Thank you so much Angel Alison. I cant promise to never doubt myself again but thanks to you I can promise that when it happens, I will know exactly what to do!

Transcognitive Spirituality

by Robert Goodwin

A new paradigm is emerging; giving rise to the convergence of scientific and esoteric thinking that is transforming human understanding about the nature of life itself.

For centuries, philosophers and spiritual thinkers alike have speculated upon the purpose of our being, the afterlife and the existence of God. Science on the other hand, has followed the route of discovery through the empirical method of experimentation that has lead to many wonderful discoveries and inventions. Now, for the first time, these two approaches, so often seen as being in opposition are converging into a unified whole, resulting in a new way of thinking and the development of scientific spirituality.

The author, himself a medium and spiritual teacher of some standing, outlines the path now being trodden by all who are embracing this exciting shift in thinking and more enlightened view of the true nature of reality. Drawing upon his vast experience and insight into the afterlife, coupled with the desire to provide factual evidence and research to support his theories, Robert treads a path that leads the reader to ever-greater heights of self-discovery and illumination.

Topics covered include the nature of reality, the holographic universe, time, the afterlife, the power of DNA, resonant fields, the afterlife and the emergence of the new paradigm, amongst others.

Transcognitive Spirituality is written from the layman's perspective and will undoubtedly open up many new doors of perception for those seeking to comprehend the universe in which we live. With over fifty helpful and instructive illustrations to compliment the narrative it is sure to both inform and delight the true seeker of enlightenment.

Inferno

by Dan Brown

In this book, the reader is introduced to some fascinating concepts. We are told at the outset that 'the darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis' and 'ignorance is no longer a forgivable offense'!. The question is posed: 'What if God was wrong'? In that case, 'Abandon hope all you who enter here' is an appropriate quote from Dante's Divine Comedy (which is not a comedy at all) and we are all on the brink of certain doom whether or not Robert Langdon catches the Transhumanists or not. However, he is hot on the heels of a man with concerns about escalation of consumerism, and who has some good Population Apocalypse Equations! There are some good lines about water requirements, global surface temperature, ozone depletion, consumption of ocean resources, species extinction, carbon dioxide saturation and deforestation. Some of the characters are as extraordinary as their ideals: the enigmatic Sienna Brooks, the odd Elizabeth Sinskey, the dedicated scientist, Bertrand Zobrist whose green eyes 'held all the mysteries of the world in their depths', but in this novel no-one is as you would expect, not even Robert Langdon!

There are lots of twists in the plot, as one would expect from Dan Brown. 'Symbols are very adept at hiding the truth' evidently and we are pushed into examining our expectations and assumptions, and also into considering some upside down morality codes and, of course, nothing is ever as it appears to be! Chapters race like jet fighters as we are presented with a death by shooting on the first page, Robert Langdon's life is hanging by a thread by page two, only to be rescued by a heroine, a Lara Croft character on page three, and so, by the end of the book, we have been up for several nights facing the most horrendous death imaginable every minute. The book is a joy for researchers (Loreena McKennett is Robert Langdon's favourite living recording artist, and Bombay Sapphire and Gogol should never be mixed!) For those who have visited Venice, Florence and Istanbul, the descriptions of these places are a joy. Fiat! 'Sing in me muse and through me tell the story'....  Exhausting - but wonderful - and I'm signing up for my tattoo because it's all so true, and so real that I was almost in tears due to the successful outcome!

The True Story of a victim of domestic violence and her journey of empowerment

"Today is the day you're going to die.
I've planned it all ..."


"This book is much more than a story of a woman suffering the torture of domestic violence. It is honest, gritty, disturbing at times, but it is also uplifting and inspirational. A story of trust, happiness and fulfillment.

By learning to accept herself for who she is and by trusting guidance and deep intuition, Alison used her inner gifts to overcome a tragic situation which culminated in the incident she now calls 'The Awakening'.

She now shares these wonderful tools with you, so that you can stop giving your power away; so that you can learn to accept help when it is offered; and ultimately it inspires you empower yourself.
 

You deserve happiness and Alison shows you how to achieve this even when the most challenging situations have to be overcome.

The Jacket Technique
by Hans De Waard


Although this is quite a short book it encompasses a wealth of spiritual information and is very easy to read. The first part of the book is devoted to how we came into this reality. It explains how & why we hold onto our resistance to the natural flow of life, holding ourselves back from everything good that life can and wants to offer us. His explanation of the concept of time is particularly intriguing and helps to explain why it can be so difficult to "live in the now." The author makes it clear that this book is written from his own beliefs & point of view, asking us to suspend our own convictions - an approach I would definitely recommend.

He explains what he terms "The Game of Life" in clear, simple, eloquent terms - making a seemingly complex subject surprisingly easy to grasp, injecting a lot of humour too.

The Jacket Technique part of the book clearly identifies the many layers of energy that we acquire in our lives - which is what the author refers to as "jackets"- and how to quickly and easily start to remove the unhelpful ones.

There is also a useful link to a free online Jacket Technique session.

The timing seems right for a book like this and I'm sure many will find it useful in helping them progress on their spiritual journey, whether they're new to the subject or well versed in the many theories of life, the universe and everything. Ultimately I found this
to be an inspiring book full of hope about an approach to leaving our baggage behind and coming together again as one. Definitely a keeper.

Your Bodies Many Cries for Water
Dr. Batmanghelidg


This book gives a fascinating insight into a subject that most people have heard a lot about but very few truly understand. Born in
Iran in 1931, Dr Fereydoon Batmanghelidg studied medicine at St. Mary's Hospital Medical School of London University. He then returned to Iran to set up medical centres and clinics for those in need. Caught up in the political turmoil of the overthrow of The Shah in 1979, when almost all professional and creative people were rounded up, Dr Batmanghelidg was incarcerated in Evin Prison in Tehran with thousands of others, in a prison designed for only 600 people. Conditions were so harsh that prison cells designed for 6-8 prisoners would sometimes house up to 90 people, causing much stress and ill health. Not long after his arrival he noticed a man with severe stomach pain due to a peptic ulcer. Without any medical aids or medicines to hand he felt totally unable to help him so could only advise drinking 2 glasses of water. Within minutes the man was pain free and Dr. Batmanghelidg realised he had to investigate this effect further. He realised that the most common ailment resulting from the stressful prison conditions was painful stomach ulcers. One prison inmate had taken all of his stomach medicine and was almost semiconscious with excruciating pain until Dr. Batmanghelidg again recommended water consumption, which completely alleviated the pain within 20 minutes. Dr. Batmanghelidg spent the next 3 years of his prison sentence "treating" all sorts of ailments with water, with amazing results. On his release in 1982 he escaped to America where he set up the Foundation for the Simple in Medicine to explore his discovery that dehydration is the true cause of many illnesses, something that his medical training had totally overlooked. This book catalogues
and explains the bodily processes that use water and the effects that even mild dehydration has on bodily systems. This updated edition includes many testimonials from readers and medical specialists who have used water to aid recovery from a wide range of illnesses. Dr. Batmanghelidg shows us in this book how far medicine has journeyed from its true naturopathic roots and how the most basic of human needs has been largely ignored to the detriment of many people's well being. A truly enlightening read.

Chronic Pain and Debilitating Conditions Resolution:
Make Unwanted Symptoms Disappear

The book, ''Chronic Pain and Debilitating Conditions Resolution: Make Unwanted Symptoms Disappear'' reveals all about the theory and the practice of Resolution Magic.

The book tells Olivia Robert's story - how she used to suffer from migraine, M.E. and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) until she discovered an unusual combination of mental exercises to make them disappear. Olivia made an amazing recovery. She had boundless energy, and began a 12-year career in pharmaceutical sales where she learnt what is known about illness from medical research, and current treatments. In the year 2002-3, Olivia studied psychotherapy; how the mind controls the way we feel and how it can be re-trained.

She realised that she would be able to formulate a programme based on her own techniques to make unwanted feelings and physical symptoms disappear. Unexpectedly, Resolution Magic worked for almost any physical symptom or condition. And it also worked for psychological symptoms (like depression) too. The book tells the case histories of many people who have used Resolution Magic for a wide variety of symptoms and conditions. It also describes over 100 symptoms, some of which are usually unexplained and unrecognised, until now. The book explains what causes unwanted feelings and physical symptoms, and why it is possible, with Resolution Magic, to make them disappear.

If you are looking for the ultimate self-help book, this is it. You can practice these techniques yourself, and reduce almost any unwanted feelings or physical symptoms until they disappear. Full step-by-step instructions are given.

The book contains a free CD so that you can begin your own Resolution Magic Programme.

Guru-U; maintaining balance & maximising potential


By Paul Wilson Bonner

A book in three parts
1. Physical Balance
2. Emotional Balance
3. Spiritual Balance

What makes this book different from the many other self-help books on the bookshelf? First and foremost, it doesn't preach about how you should be living your life from another's viewpoint. It looks deeper into the fundamental aspects of YOUR life, and from that, offers a programme as individual as you are.

Now that may seem clichéd to some, but this book really does give practical, and more importantly, reachable goals for those who wish to bring their lives into balance on all levels. It is superbly researched and written, and offers excellent, straight-forward advice. It is not a quick-fix solution, and the key to success when using this book is practice, practice, practice.

It encourages you to find out where and how your life is out of balance and offers gentle guidance in practical, step by step techniques, which surely is the key to succeeding in bringing perfect balance in all aspects of your life.

Quotes from the book:
"Many teachings state that our balance is based on a perfect blend of 'mind, body and soul'. If each of these points is of equal importance and we are lacking in one area or putting too much emphasis on another then we are literally unbalanced" …….

……"The basics of Guru-U are for you to look at these three areas and work out which you are giving greater credence to, and to examine those areas that you are currently neglecting. In order to maintain a perfect balance between your three fundamental aspects you must work on those areas of your life and realise where you need to apply more or even less effort."

"I will be applying the techniques to my life - I don't think there could be a better endorsement than that!"
Sarah Smith - Editor, Health & Happiness Magazine

Reveals the Secret Messages from Your Soul
Written by Anna-Louise Haigh

The Soul Whisperer acts as a bridge between the life you currently live and the one you were born to. All too often we look outside ourselves to relationships, careers and accumulation of material goods to try to make our life what we think it should be. We all want to live a life which is filled with unlimited joy, abundance, genuine love and fulfilment. The greatest source of the wisdom which can make such a life possible resides within your soul. It is the role of The Soul Whisperer to help you find the answers to these questions:

- Do you want to learn how your soul can enrich
  everyday of your life?
- Are you searching for reasons behind some of the
  challenges you have encountered?
- Have you come to a point in your own development
  where you seek guidance that you can relate to?




Within this book you will find loyally transcribed soul whisperings of many others who were searching for answers which will help you learn how to:

  • Tap into your wealth of inner wisdom
  • Understand the universal motive behind events that can change the course of your life
  • Understand how others have faced similar challenges to yourself and reaped the rewards from their infinite guide.

We all have a secret wealth of wisdom sleeping within our heart. The Soul Whisperer gently awakens you to the treasures that have been waiting to speak to you. Anna-Louise says, 'when you awaken to the potential of your soul, your life becomes a limitless, empowering journey that nurtures every waking moment.'

The book is intended to provide information, guidance, healing and inspiration from the soul in relation to many of the common challenges we all face. It is regularly interspersed with brief 'Soul Whisperings' and other more lengthy messages channelled from the soul which are intended to bring comfort and insight, so you know you are not alone with what you are experiencing.

The tone is upbeat although it deals with some very challenging life events and the aim is to bring understanding, comfort and enlightenment to the reader so that they can relate to the characters in the chapters and therefore this book can be a resource and an inspiration.

SOUL TO SOUL PARENTING:
A Guide to Raising a Spiritually Conscious Family
by Annie Burnside

A guidebook for parents who want to infuse greater spiritual awareness into everyday life, inspiring deeper meaning and connections within their family- Book Trailer click here

The 2011 Nautilus Silver Book Award in the Family/Parenting Category, the 2011 Next Generation Indie Gold Book Award in the Spirituality Category, and a 2011 Next Generation Indie Book Finalist in the Parenting Category

Parents yearning for ways to inspire deeper meaning in their family's busy lives will find a wealth of insight and user-friendly suggestions in the new book, Soul to Soul Parenting: A Guide to Raising a Spiritually Conscious Family (Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing, June 2010).

It's both a guidebook filled with a wide-ranging "toolbox" of ideas and activities and a remarkable chronicle of one family's spiritual journey. The author, Annie Burnside, M.Ed.-teacher, wife, mother of three, and professional soul nurturer-is a modern mom who utilizes everyday life experiences including mealtimes, books, movies, art, friendships, time in the car, and family outings to open perspectives and nourish souls, infusing a heightened spiritual awareness into their lives.

Today's parents are searching for more inclusive, less polarizing ways to evolve with their children. Soul to Soul Parenting can be a key part of that journey, exploring how to forge deeper, more intimate communication within the family in the face of a fast-paced world. The book encourages parents from every demographic and religious base to become active participants in their children's awakening as conscious global citizens.

Adapting principles learned from her journey of self-discovery, her family, and her professional experience providing spiritual insight and support, Annie empowers parents to live soul to soul with their children, not just side by side, offering inspiring prescriptive tools, applications, and ready-to-use ideas along the way.

Annie shares a spectrum of 22 methods for integrating spirituality into daily family life, encompassing a range of techniques-such as visual cues, the intuitive-gratitude journal, family discussions, the spirit mobile, exploring music, utilizing nature, cranking up the joy, and showing your spirit-as well as fifteen universal themes such as connectedness and boundaries, presence and openness, truth and perception, authenticity and joy.

A key message for parents, Annie says, is that once a divine perspective is ignited within, we can feel more intimately connected to the eternal source, cultivating personal truth, authentic relationships, and enhanced life experiences. Effectively conveying this nondenominational, conscious spirituality to children will enable them to experience what the author calls direct divine connection, a sense of infinite possibility, and greater inner awareness.

In her nurturing and affirming voice, Annie notes that the spiritually conscious family is definitely not a perfect family, but rather one that is fully aware of each individual's capacity to shape their reality. Conscious parenting, she says, requires paying more attention to bringing your children to a deeper understanding of such powerful concepts as self-love, unique potential, free will, compassion, and gratitude, through a variety of simple, daily means.

Recognizing that these subjects are distinctly personal within each family, Soul to Soul Parenting encourages all parents as the experts of their own families to tailor their efforts and trust themselves to teach their children universal spiritual principles.

THE JOLLY PILGRIM
By Peter Baker
There's never been a better time to live on this planet

London - the Jolly Pilgrim sets off on a bicycle ride to Istanbul, planning a rendezvous with the girl he wants to marry. Eighteen months later and halfway around the world, following hospitalisations, financial meltdown, torment and heartbreak, he goes to live as a hermit in South America, to explore a bunch of ideas about humanity's place in the universe.
   He swims the Bosporus and works in a drag club, hitchhikes across Australia and dances salsa in an Ecuadorian prison, experiences rapture and revelation amidst talismanic historical and religious sites, endures love, voyeurism, bees, ants, sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and in response, conceives a message of hope for civilisation.
  

Part adventure story, part reflection on the state of our species, this profoundly uplifting, real-life odyssey ends with a call-to-arms for the human race to be more honest about itself.

The Little Book of Big Promises

A Three-Step Process for Uncovering Your Soul's Plan

By Peggy Rometo

Advisor to Demi Moore and Donna Karan reveals life changing tools to the public for the first time in her new book

Intuitive healer and psychic medium Peggy Rometo reveals to the public what was once only available to only those willing to wait for a private consultation. The Little Book of Big Promises is already receiving praise from her celeb clients like Demi Moore, and designer Donna Karan, who threw the author a launch party at her ultra-posh Urban Zen location in New York.

"Peggy has been an extraordinary guide to me. With her intuitive ability, she is able to help one connect to a higher source, that which is innately in all of us but so few have the ability to access." Donna Karan

"Promises hold powerful energy that unfulfilled or not explored can limit our potential. With The Little Book of Big Promises, Peggy Rometo, one of the most genuine, authentic, and caring people I know, gives us the key to unlock a treasure chest of tools to transform our pain into healing, make peace with adversity, and open the door to our true potential." Demi Moore

In The Little Book of Big Promises, intuitive healer Peggy Rometo guides you on an inspiring journey to uncover your life's path. Using guided meditations, energy work, and other practices that allow you to tap into your intuition, she helps you identify the big promises you made to yourself and the world before your life began.


Rometo's Pursuit of Promises process focuses on a sequence of significant events in your life - from as far back as childhood or from your life today - that have helped shape you. Looking at these events and your reactions to them will begin to reveal your promises - promises that outline the actions, intentions and qualities you're meant to live. Throughout the process Rometo explores how to break free of the old patterns, beliefs and fears that hold you back from embodying your true self.

In the end, you will find your current promise, which is your starting point for a plan of action to live an authentic, purposeful life. Ultimately, you will be able to honor your life's overarching promise: to share who you are.

There are many books and courses available on the subject of leadership - a role which takes place in every aspect of our lives. Like spirituality, it is a subject that can only be developed through experience - not learned from an article or book.

However, written information can provide guidance as to what to look for, and what to avoid!

In our society, we have two approaches to our leaders, either we idolize them - or we reject them! Everyone wants to be a leader, but no-one wants to be led! Though many would like to live without leaders, in reality, we can make no progress without them! The aim of a leader is task orientated and to further the group's development - not their own. Leadership needs to be conducted most especially when the members are not making progress alone. The position of team 'leader' in a small group is also that of manager, teacher, caretaker, facilitator, steward, mentor, guide and coach! A good leader's job is broad and requires considerable sacrifice, expertise and dedication. If anyone thinks this work is easy, they will be convinced otherwise when they read the following list of skills and award marks for each!

Tasks of the leader: anticipating problems in advance; arbitrating between people; articulating what has not been spoken; assigning tasks; assisting others to get the best from their own talents; building strengths and confidence; chastising when appropriate; coaching; consoling; defining the indefinable; demonstrating skills; developing abilities and opportunities; eliminating hindrances; emphasizing and maximizing strengths; empowering and encouraging; ensuring safety; evaluating; focusing on tasks; identifying needs; imparting knowledge; implementing changes; increasing expertise, awareness and competency; listening; maintaining order, ethos, standards, values and boundaries; managing and mentoring; moderating during conflict; monitoring; motivating; negotiating; observing; organizing; preparing; preserving what is good; problem solving; protecting; recognizing opportunities and dangers; refereeing in arguments; reinforcing skills; reviewing; setting an example; supporting those in need; stabilizing the group; taking necessary decisions; and helping all members get the best from their communal activities.

Effective leaders lead by example and should be applauded for their capacity to fulfil many responsibilities with calmness and goodwill. Theirs is the most prominent position within the group, and therefore the leader is usually scrutinized and criticized more than any other member. A leader often suffers from the petty jealousies of others who do not wish for responsibility or commitment. A leader is usually held accountable when things go wrong, so it is not a role to envy!
A leader maintains the smooth running of meetings and implements changes in order to maintain good practice. A leader should also facilitate, and stimulate an increase in the depth of work without pressurizing anyone. A leader often looks after organisational and planning matters, and is aware of spiritual influences and time factors. A leader also has responsibility for the cohesion and collaboration of the membership. Most leaders will fail at some stage to accomplish all these requirements and should be given the group's support for their attempts to do the job to the best of their ability.

Autocratic and self-serving styles of leadership are common in our society, and occur where one person manipulates or bullies everyone else, misusing power until resentful members rebel. Gentler members who are eager for progress end up carrying those who are overly ambitious for personal power - and are good at getting it. Resentment against self-centred leaders is therefore justifiable. An alternative to autocratic leadership is that of rotational leadership as this gives everyone the chance to take this high profile position within the group. If members voluntarily choose certain job responsibilities within the group, this is beneficial. When one person has held a key position for a given length of time, another should be appointed to keep the workload circulating, so that there is an opportunity to be involved with different activities. There are ways of sharing responsibilities fairly, such as by volunteering, by random selection (either spinning a coin or drawing straws), by rote, or alphabetical order.

When a leader is ineffective, the members will suffer, and conflicts will arise and will result in members resigning. Sometimes leadership is not required and the group can be self-facilitating. If a leader does not perform the tasks of leadership, any member can take the initiative and organise what needs to be done, not by being competitive, but co-operative. In groups where no leader has been appointed, one usually emerges.

It is often difficult, without prior experience, to be a fair and aware, yet firm leader. The answer is in mutual negotiation, cooperation and initiative with the whole group building a strong multi-tasking team. Compromise and co-operation are vital parts of the learning process and sharing experiences are part of the learning process. This is a service of self-sacrifice that we offer to others on the same path as ourselves. Everyone can be pro-active and take initiatives on an equal basis with consideration to everyone, even those not present. Questions should be phrased; "Can I suggest…?", "I would like…", "I need…", or "Shall I…?"

Small problems may seem nit-picking, but if one waits, it may be too late to restore stability. A good slogan is 'small errors grow large'. Lack of quality leadership requires a change of leadership! Those who respond well to authority figures show a mark of emotional maturity. Lightworkers recognise the importance of inter-dependency and task sharing. We also appreciate that every member has something of value to offer. It is important to be able to feel comfortable in both roles; that of being led, and that of leader.

All parts make up the whole, and all parts are necessary and have their place. If there is personal incompatibility within the group, interpersonal issues can be resolved by examining what each person expects, needs and wants from the group, and from their leader. Each specific problem could be brought to Spirit for resolution through meditation and prayer for guidance. Adjustments to the method, style and content of the sessions may also be required and expectations and assumptions also need addressing.

Leadership is a position of service but because leaders usually do more work than anyone else does, they sometimes feel the post deserves some form of remuneration. The need for good leadership is present in all aspects of our life. In large groups, it is almost impossible to make consistent progress without a regular leader.

Most groups work through differences and difficult times, and successful leaders take the pressure off themselves by sharing their power intelligently with others. Small, leaderless groups particularly thrive on the basis of communal responsibility. Democratic leadership can only ensure power for the majority over the minority, even if the minority is one person and the majority, two. Where there is dissent, we aim at a win/win scenario, wherever possible.

It is useful to bear in mind that hierarchies frequently abuse power. When this happens, people form alliances, and begin to compete, some might scapegoat vulnerable people in their midst. If an organisation is corrupt at the top, it will, without doubt, be corrupt at the bottom! However, organisations that are wholesome at the top might still be corrupt at the bottom - unless they have an adherence to rules and consistent monitoring of ethical standards. I mention this because every small group still has many of the problems associated with larger institutions. The ultimate aim of life itself is to increase our capacity to care for others and to develop our sense of responsibility to those in need and we can do this in whatever environment we may take part in, such as family, community and work groups.

In emergencies, a majority vote can be taken. The circle is a combined venture and a valuable learning experience for everyone. There are many ways in which all members can be active and can add to their knowledge and skills. We are all responsible for creating the best groups possible, and to be the best we can be within them. Whenever a group functions badly, change is necessary. When all else fails, the old order should be disbanded and a new order formed of fresh, new members.

A SURVIVORS GUIDE TO CANCER

I am very excited about my new book, A SURVIVORS GUIDE TO CANCER: THE NEW 7-POINT PLAN TO RECLAIM YOUR HEALTH. This is the book I would have loved to find when I was first diagnosed. It will save you hours of research and surfing the web looking for 'help'.

It is a compilation of all my research into - and first hand experience of, cancer. It is simple, easy to follow, and contains all the information you need to know about cancer and how to make your body strong again.

When someone is told they have cancer. it is one of the most frightening experiences a person can have. You just need someone to say, 'This is what you have to do' and to empower you to take control of what is happening in your body.

In 2003, like thousands of other women, I had surgery for breast cancer and in September 2007 I found out I had bowel cancer. That was when I realised that once you have had cancer surgery, you cannot just go back to your life as it was and expect cancer to stay away. I have learned the hard way that you need to make fundamental changes in lifestyle and diet in order to keep cancer at bay. I spent the next nine months finding out everything I could about what makes cancer thrive and how to make my body inhospitable to this disease.

I explored many different ways to help the body to fight back because I needed to know how to help myself as naturally as possible to cope with this very frightening disease. Not only that, how to deal with the harsh cancer treatments -  the effects of chemo/radiotherapy and major surgery. With the latest statistic showing that 1 in 2 people in the US have or will have cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 3 in the UK, I know that what I have learned must be shared.

My book will guide you through the extraordinary process of having cancer and how to cope with so many things such as:

1. How to overcome the fear that cancer brings up
2. Understand the prime cause of cancer
3. Make your body inhospitable to cancer
4. Possible causal factors
5. Essential nutrition and importance of cellular strength
6. Understanding the importance of hydration
7. The healing power of relaxation
8. Coping with the effects of chemo/radiotherapy

If you have just been told you have cancer please take heart. There is so much you can do to help yourself deal with all the different aspects of what lies ahead.

Breaking Through the Untouchable Diseases

by Gerald Green - Medical Herbalist and Immunologist

In 1976 I was struck down by life threatening asthma so severe it caused major lung destruction called emphysema and I was basically dying in Brompton Hospital.  

I knew the score with emphysema so I read medicine fifteen hours a day, every day  (from knowing nothing).  I eventually devised a formula that I called the Lung Triple Alliance made from liquorice, slippery elm and lobelia, which believe it or not quickly eliminated the asthma.

Whilst ensuring the emphysema could not advance and kill me, I also suffered from a duodenal ulcer that had me in agony for over 7½ years and my doctor prescribed me strong painkillers but nothing to cure it.  I therefore adapted my original lung formula replacing lobelia with the anti-inflammatory golden seal herb.  It eliminated my ulcer in 4½ weeks.  I called this formula the Gut Triple Alliance.
   While on a train I spotted a news booklet on Colitis and Crohn's Disease.  What I read horrified me - the first few pages were on the various different ways of having one's bowel removed which I thought would "cheer up" readers no end!  Finally the last two pages were a memoriam for those who had died from these terrible gut diseases.  As I had swiftly rid myself of that painful ulcer, I felt convinced I could help these poor people with inflammatory bowel disease.  I wrote to a Pen Friends section and eventually a Mrs S said she was suffering terribly from Ulcerative Colitis and if I was to fail she was due for a colostomy.   I sent off the medicine and Mrs S reported back after a few days saying all her symptoms were gone and her colostomy cancelled.  I was elated!  However, she then mentioned a friend with similar Crohn's Disease and asked if I could do anything.  "Oh yes I replied, it should be easy".  'Pride as they say comes before a fall' because I sent off the same formula to her and it had no affect at all.  I was devastated, how could this be?  For the next 3 years I either had a miraculous result like Mrs S, no result at all (as with her friend) or somewhere inbetween.
   The treatment was still worthwhile but irritating both for me and the patients, with a poor success rate.  Then help came in the form of a health newsletter from America that said drug induced Candida in its parasitic fungal format could mask out most or even all medicinal effect.  This was wonderful news and from this point on I used the anti-candida dietary regime on my IBD patients as they are collectively called and providing they kept to the strict diet, up to 100% remission could be achieved.  With this experience I progressed onto another auto-immune disease called systemic lupus and I was able to relieve these mainly female patients.
   In 1985 I went on to write my first booklet on 'Inflammatory Bowel Disease - collectively known as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis'.
   I always felt intensely sorry to see people in wheelchairs with the horrible neurological disease MS and wanted to crack this as well.  I took on a poor lady called Sue from Brighton who had the very worst type of MS called primary progressive.  She was wheelchair bound, incontinent, in great pain and was dying so, yet again, I was 'thrown in at the deep end'. In a paper I had read, there was a base element that could turn the attacking immune system off in rheumatoid arthritis.  Could this I thought also work on MS and a fellow auto-immune disease?  Almost certainly, and for the first time ever I used the base metallic element immune ingredient against very severe MS.  Sue was very co-operative in carrying out the strict but essential anti-candida diet and within 3 days she felt sensation in her legs, her eyesight improved and she was less fatigued.  In only two weeks she took her first steps and became fully continent.  Within only a month from dying she was enjoying 75% relief remission.  
   Full of enthusiasm I wanted more MS patients but most I came across said "doctors can't touch MS - what chance have you"? and similar negative remarks  both from sufferers and the medical profession.  Then an Australian friend Myra Finlay wrote an article on my wonderful result with Sue in a Brisbane newsletter.  All I can say is thank god for the freer press and more 'open minded' people of Australia.  From this, 6 Australian MS ladies asked to be treated, 4 of which were in wheelchairs. 5 experienced up to 90% relief remission, but just one of these 6 ladies would not follow the anti-candida diet and she sadly died, but I cannot help anyone who will not go half way to helping themselves with the essential diet as this will mask out the medicinal effect.
   An article was soon after published in a New Zealand natural environmental alternative health magazine and I had dozens of eager MS patients from abroad eager for treatment, Again I was delighted that so many of these patients were relieved of their terrible suffering.
   It was then in 1995 I realised I had the formula to relieve and put in remission MS and I wrote my second booklet 'Multiple Sclerosis - Beaten against all the odds'.
   Although not an auto-immune disease, I have since gone on to treating some cancer patients with my herbal remedies and essential anti-candida diet with some encouraging results.  From this I went on to write my third booklet in 2004 called 'How to Change your Bodily Environment to Beat Cancer'.
   There are too many accounts to put in such a short space but I would just like to mention Sjogren's Syndrome.  A young lady called Clare came to see me as she heard I was a "magician" with auto-immune diseases.  She said for many years she suffered with dry gritty eyes, sore throat and painful joints. I put the immune ingredient in a candida killing carrier called wormwood and in just 3 weeks all her lubricating functions returned to normal i.e. tears, saliva and synovial fluid to lubricate her joints.

The title of my latest book 'Breaking Through the Untouchable Diseases' This is a compilation of all three of my booklets as well as cardiovascular disease, kidney stones, gall stones, helping patients to conceive - 'legally'! and more general remedies.

THE LOGICAL MAGIC OF CHANGE

How to Cope With Just About Anything and
Bring About Positive Change

By Valerie Thompson

ISBN 978-0-9565859-0-5

Published by Calmrise Publishing

www.valerieelizabeththompson.com
Paperback £6.99
Kindle version £5.16 / Other electronic formats available    


This self help guide offers a down to earth perspective on many aspects of life and includes useful information about positive thinking combined with a caring and considerate approach to others. It is written in a gentle, warm and easily accessible style that all readers will enjoy and benefit from. The author, Valerie Thompson, worked in banking for many years, rising to Director level before leaving to qualify and practise as a life coach. Her previous book "Mastering The Euromarkets" (Irwin 1996) is a guide to understanding the securities markets.

I found the subject matter of 'The Logical Magic of Change' intelligently explained. I was impressed to discover rational, thoughtful and well researched material that is psychologically mature and sensitively presented. Valerie discloses personal and often painful incidents in the past and, due to her belief in positive thinking and the use of affirmations, she overcame difficult childhood circumstances and deep shyness to become successful in both her first and second careers.

Valerie's methods, which underpinned her rise to become a 'high flyer' within a major organisation, can work for you too! If you are struggling with low self esteem and need a boost to your confidence, this book will help you gain clarity and achieve inner healing. It will aid you in both defining attainable goals, and summoning the strength to achieve your desired aims.

Self-help book for teenagers inspired by environmental role

  INSPIRATIONAL BOOK MOTIVATES TEENAGERS TO ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS

Her work with the environment has proved the unlikely motivation for a Birmingham woman to write a self-help book for teenagers, designed to help them boost their confidence and self-esteem, deal with pre-exam stress and motivation issues and go on to achieve whatever they wish to in life.

A former city councillor (1982-1990), Jude Ashworth was given special responsibility for environmental matters and later became regional director for the Tidy Britain Group. It was her experiences during that period that made her realise how vital it is for each of us to take responsibility for ourselves and our environment in order to determine the course of our own lives.

"I too was a teenager once, with very little confidence in my ability to succeed. However, had I known then what I do now, I'm sure I would have enjoyed the experience much more. That's why I want to pass on the message to teenagers in my book that they have the power to influence their own future." explained Jude.

"I decided to write the book after delivering a number of inspirational life-skills courses to teenagers in various secondary schools in the West Midlands.  These evoked excellent testimonials from students, teachers and parents alike. Teens, You Have the Power  was developed from the informative handouts I've given out at these sessions."

Jude has run her own well-being practice since 1997, specialising in Reiki(*) teaching and treatments,  personal empowerment, stress management and life coaching for all age groups.

User-friendly
An interactive, self-help book, the publication is in a user-friendly format, easy to write in with sections for participating and responding to the journal activities.  A life skills buddy-in-a-book for teenagers, Teens you have the Power, is both a guide and workbook for the individual teenager and a potential tool for facilitators working with them.
Jude anticipates that some young people may not realise that they could benefit from the book, but parents and teachers may see it first and so whet their appetite.
"Some
of my students took time to come round to the idea of working on themselves in the beginning, but when the course came to an end, they confirmed they had far more confidence, could deal with stress much better - especially at exam time - and they liked, loved and understood themselves a lot more. The positive feedback and enthusiasm I received from them and their teachers led me to write the book." said Jude
Now bitten by the writing bug, Jude already plans to produce a further book - an 'adult speak' version of Teens, You Have the Power.  "My first book has a confidential, journal-element for teenagers, becoming a 'buddy in a book' for them, which parents and teachers will respect. A comparable version for adults is the obvious solution."
