My Mind Won't Shut Up!

My Mind Won't Shut Up!

Author: Linda Williamson, Marion Williamson, Sarah Ray Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/01/2021

Written by two sturdy-legged, chip eating meditating sisters from Scotland, My Mind Won't Shut Up is the book they looked for to give to friends, but couldn't find... so they wrote this for you. An easy-to-follow, sometimes funny, non-confrontational book on how you can use meditation to help you be aware of the present moment. The more conscious you become of your repetitive internal gibberish, the easier it will be to spot unhelpful thoughts, drop them, or replace them with kinder ones. What this book is... Everything you need to know about meditation without being too po-faced about it. It squishes popular myths about meditation being all pan pipes and incense. Shows you how to manage your preposterously messy brain, making you feel a bit happier and more in control. Tackles all your wriggly excuses that discourage you from making meditation a habit. What this book isn't... This book is not a spiritual journey. We can t show you how to control your thoughts and feelings having a chaotic mind is just an annoying part of being human. There's nothing religious in here. It won't make you better at Kung Fu.

Divine Abundance Oracle Cards

Divine Abundance Oracle Cards

Author: Tosha Silver Format: Cards Release Date: 29/12/2020

Tosha Silver's message about money is counterintuitive, fresh and profoundly different from the way most of us approach money in our lives. So many people push towards their financial goals, chase the means to meet their needs, yearn for the feeling of security that eludes them. Tosha takes a radical new approach: the key, she says, is let go of those desperate wishes and financial fears, and instead offer all of what you have and want and hope for to the Divine - whatever that means to you - in order to receive more freedom and abundance than you could have dreamed of. This beautiful oracle deck offers a practical, soulful way to put Tosha's teachings into practice. Drawing inspiration from her book It's Not Your Money, the deck contains 52 quotes that will spur you to reflection specific aspects of your relationship with money, career, and abundance. Your own soul will guide you to the message you need that day, making you an open conduit for receiving these liberating concepts and helping you start to live them more completely. As you work with the deck, you'll find your mind expanding so that you can be abundance rather than chasing abundance.

Little Book of Zen

Little Book of Zen

Author: Tina Chantrey Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/12/2020

The perfect antidote to the fast-paced nature of our modern world, the Little Book of Zen is an easy-to-understand guide to the practice of Zen. This bitesize book falls into two parts, starting with an introduction to Zen and a description of the way to get the best out of it. It gives a short history of the practice, which originated in Japan after adaptation from a Chinese philosophy, and shows how the benefits of Zen are just as relevant today. It also includes a variety of easy-to-use meditations for relaxation, stress relief and enlightenment. The second half of the book features categories of Zen-type quotations on life, happiness, nature and more. Zen Quotations Life and Happiness 'Your mind is a powerful thing. When you filter it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.' Gautama Buddha 'The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.' Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Globetrotter's Guide to Happiness

Author: Kate Morgan Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/12/2020

Sample ways to find happiness from around the world and discover tips on how to adopt these philosophies at home. Wherever we are in the world, as humans we're all striving for happiness--a feeling of wellbeing and calm amidst the everyday struggles and chaos. What differs is how we pursue that happiness, and there are a range of philosophies on offer around the globe. From searching for ikigai (the 'meaning of life') in Japan or taking a fika coffee break in Sweden, to heading for the hills to clear the mind in Norway or appreciating the art of gezellig ('coziness') in the Netherlands, the world is a tapestry of happiness philosophies we can sample and learn from. This book features 20 philosophies together with gorgeous illustrations. Each chapter includes an overview of that philosophy, where it originates from, its meaning to that culture, and ways to implement the philosophy in your everyday life at home. There's also information on places you can travel to experience the philosophy a little deeper, and interviews with people who very much practice what they preach, all wrapped up in a beautiful package.

Morning Light on the Spiritual Path

Morning Light on the Spiritual Path

Author: White Eagle Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 25/11/2020

In every sense of the word White Eagle's MORNING LIGHT is a classic among his books of comforting and inspiring teaching from spirit. It came out in 1957 as the first in a series of gentle statements designed to lift the reader up - out of immersion in the dark material world and into a place where vision might dawn and a new understanding of life could grow. It has, also, had a spell under the title FIRST STEPS ON A SPIRITUAL PATH, but in the 2020s the original title seems most fit for the emerging consciousness of today. FIRST STEPS was subtitled 'White Eagle's introduction to the inner wisdom' - but maybe it should have said 'inward wisdom', because White Eagle only ever seeks to remind readers of things that, deep inside, they already know.

Discover the life-changing effects of the MindFlow Method, which will teach you how to release your resistance to challenges, raise your energy level, and move into a state of flow and deep inner peace.
