Who am I?

Raised in a fearful and toxic environment where love was completely absent and terror was always at home, I had to learn to let go of my many programs, fears, and traumas so that I could avoid making the mistake of thinking and believing that the story of my past was going to become the story of my life. Through a long journey of letting go, getting lost in order to be found, I realized that who I Am, and who we all are, is far greater and far nobler than what we are programmed to believe. And now my mission is to teach people from all over the world how to let go so they can thrive.

Book cover of The Power of Energy Medicine: Your Natural Prescription for Resilient Health

I absolutely love this book. When I first picked it up, I’ll admit, I was skeptical. I know a lot about Energy Medicine, and I wasn’t sure what new information I’d learn. It turned out to be one of those books that you cannot put down. The author has an engaging and friendly voice, while also being an astute authority on her topic. Her stories draw you in and open your mind to the possibilities that there is so much more that we don’t know about how the body/mind/spirit works. But this book also allows you to experience her process and get a taste of the power you hold within yourself to accelerate healing.

Who am I?

I remember being a kid and wanting to know everything about everything. After I’d been teaching yoga for several years, and finding myself struggling with stress and trauma that the yoga wasn’t helping, I really started to dive into the world of Energy. That world is fascinating, endless, and powerful. And the more I study and learn, the better my life gets. I’ve created my own teaching methodology from all the studies I’ve done and helped thousands of people find their own inner strength and healing. I love learning how other people overcame their struggles and how at the root, we basically all want to help each other! That's the kind of world I aspire to.

Energy Medicine

By James L Oschman,

Book cover of Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis

Amongst the books covering the scientific basis of energy healing, Oschman’s Energy Medicine stands out for its accessibility to the general reader. Energy Medicine provides a sound foundation to the subject. Covering the historical development of the subject; the scientific basis for measuring the energy body; the frequencies of its electromagnetic fields; and how this research has allowed the development of techniques and technologies for its measurement and regulation in order to promote healing and restore health.

A whole range of energy modalities are discussed amongst which we find such, by now, standard medical interventions as Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF); others, such as acupuncture, are still considered to be ‘alternative’ in the context of mainstream medicine; and still others, such as Rolfing or Structural Integration, fall within the ambit of ‘personal development’. The great value of this information is that it provides the reader with a broad, up-to-date scientific…

The Power of the Healing Field: Energy Medicine, Psi Abilities, and Ancestral Healing

By Peter Mark Adams,

Book cover of The Power of the Healing Field: Energy Medicine, Psi Abilities, and Ancestral Healing

What is my book about?

Sharing remarkable cases of healing and personal transformation covering more than 20 years of intensive professional energy work, as well as experiences from other gifted healers, psychics, and shamans, Peter Mark Adams illustrates the role of transpersonal fields of consciousness in healing a range of issues, from inherited family and ancestral problems, to past lives and womb trauma, to near-death experiences, merged identities, and spirit attachment.

Utilising actual cases of healing drawn from over twenty years of professional energy work, the studies illustrate the use of a whole range of healing modalities including Mind Connection Healing (MCH), Rebirthing breathwork, Usui Reiki, and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).

Book cover of Life Force, the Scientific Basis: Volume 2 of the Synchronized Universe

This book contains numerous research studies on subtle energy, energy medicine, and new technologies to measure phenomena that have generally been thought of as outside of the realm of Western science. What I learned from the research in this book is that it is possible to conclusively prove that the world we live in is much more interconnected than we realize. Theoretical frameworks, methodologies, and explanations are available that challenge our usual notions of time, space, and non-locality. Reading this book will show any open-minded readers that a dualistic frame of reference will never enable us to understand the universe that each of us is an integral part of.

Who am I?

I believe that spiritual awakening is a service to the universe, and not just for our own enlightenment. Spirituality generally has been viewed as a return to some other realm of consciousness, rather than a means to awakening what we think of as divinity in life. There can never be a “finish line” to spirituality, as there is no end to the possibilities which collective co-evolution can bring about. The only way that intractable problems of humanity will ever be resolved is if a large number of people awaken to higher states of consciousness, while firmly grounded in life.

Your Faith is Your Fortune

By Neville Goddard,

Book cover of Your Faith is Your Fortune

Our confidence in ourselves, says Neville Goddard, is determined by our faith in the God-power present within each and every one of us. If we happen to fail in life, it’s only because of a lack of faith - in ourselves. But faith can be taught.

Spiritual Emergency

By Stanislav Grof,

Book cover of Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis

Comprehensive in scope, deep in the accumulated experience and knowledge brought to bear on the issue of mental, emotional, and physical well-being; this amazing work played a crucial role in awakening me to the broader horizons of the healer’s work. Ranging from crises of psychic, spiritual, and kundalini awakening to the trauma of UFO encounters; this work seeks to chart a supportive path whereby spontaneous traumatic openings to that ‘something larger’ which lays beyond us can be viewed and responded to as susceptible to integration, rather than suppressive medical interventions, thereby opening unparalleled opportunities for profound personal and spiritual growth.

Book cover of The Discernment of Spirits: A Reader's Guide: An Ignatian Guide for Everyday Living

In a world of duality, we desperately need to be taught how to discern between truth and falsehood; between lies and illusions; between darkness and light, and between that which is love and that which is fear.

The Presence of the Past

By Rupert Sheldrake,

Book cover of The Presence of the Past: Morphic Resonance and the Memory of Nature

The amazing results achieved with energy healing raise profound questions concerning the nature of consciousness and the human energy anatomy and how these suggest the existence of a much broader conception of reality than consensual thought allows for, and it is with respect to this broader conception that Rupert Sheldrake proves such an informative guide. His central concept - that of the existence of ‘morphic fields’ connecting all sentient life-forms and the influence that they exert on our emotional and physical lives through the phenomena of ‘morphic resonance’ - provides the ‘missing link’ in our understanding of consciousness and as well as the root causes of much of the mental, emotional and physical ill-health that we encounter as healers.

Reclaiming Wellness: Ancient Wisdom for Your Healthy, Happy, and Beautiful Life

By Jovanka Ciares,

Book cover of Reclaiming Wellness: Ancient Wisdom for Your Healthy, Happy, and Beautiful Life

Jovanka Ciares

Many of the most popular approaches to mind, body, and spirit wellness are rooted in age-old practices from around the world and come from communities of color. But today they are typically promoted and used only by dominant culture elites. No more. In Reclaiming Wellness, Jovanka Ciares reclaims these time- and science-proven modalities to make them affordable and easy to implement for anyone.

After years of suffering from IBS, ulcers, and fibroids, Ciares embraced alternative therapies like Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and herbalism. Her fifteen-year journey toward self-healing, peace, and happiness became her motivation to inspire and support thousands of others to do the same, especially those like herself — educated women of color who are rarely represented in the billion-dollar industry of health and wellness.

In fact, at the end of the book you will have this profound feeling that you no longer are the same person you were when you first started reading this book and that you have become better, wiser, more peaceful, and far more loving and trusting than you used to be.
