Most of the information is kept under the cover of faith and religious believe, and many have used this knowledge to control people and lead them within political agendas; others have used it for personal gaining while hiding it from everyone else.
Whatsoever is the case there’s still plenty to learn about the law of attraction or the law of dream manifestation.
Most books discussing it will show strategies, techniques and methods to obtain what we wish for in our life but they still hide the main secrets.
These Authors show us what to do but not how it works, why it works or the purpose of its existence.
After decades of personal studies on spirituality, a simplification within a specific theory was possible to explain more than anyone ever said about this issue.
This book doesn’t intend to represent any religious dogma in particular and was written based on the insights from several spiritual believes, ancient and modern, as well as known and secret to the public.
Religion promotes a life philosophy and, although very misleading, also talks about universal truth.
This paradigm is being noticed by modern science, which in some fields attests the dogma and in others reveals its fallacy.
We’re now much closer to know what is true, false or merely half-true.
Quantum Physics, for example, is still at its starting point but much has explained already.
Willing to describe a more complete understanding matching all these subjects, the Author will here reveal what he knows with a reasonable and humble perspective based on personal experiences.
This book will not make any promises regarding becoming a millionaire or famous and none of the theories here exposed are immune to failure.
Instead, it will explain how personal and spiritual growth matches the law of attraction and how we can understand life and the changes in our reality better while applying the necessary responsibility we must have as the spiritual beings that we are.
The following chapters are supported by the Author’s background and studies in Religious Societies, Greek Philosophy, Chinese Philosophy, Modern Psychology and Psychopedagogy, related to the mechanism of life and the anatomy of the spirit, as well as these sources’ acknowledgement in what can be applied to the law of attraction.
The theory presented is complete, flexible, simple and practical, allowing an easy assimilation to any lifestyle.
With this knowledge the reader will have the power to change reality and manifest his own desires, while understanding all the dynamics involved in such process.
The major success of the first edition wasn’t expected but the Author took into consideration all kind opinions and uplifting reviews to improve this second edition and make it even more powerful and accessible to anyone.
You have now in your hands a book that has been recommended by famous Entrepreneurs as being in the same level as Napoleon Hill “Think and Grow Rich” and Wallace D. Wattles “The Science of Getting Rich”, both books that inspired the movie “The Secret” and all the speakers in it. But also a book that climbed rapidly into the Bestsellers list of Amazon soon after being published for the first time.
This is truly the most revealing book about the Secrets behind “The Secret”.
I was the only one in the group taking notes, so I thought that I would be stopped but it didn’t happen.
I never shared this information with anyone before, because most people aren’t ready to understand it, but I’ve helped many people by using these principles.
In this book, I present a resume of those theories. So, ”I wish above all things that you prosper and be in good health, even as your soul prospers” (3 John 1:2); “May God give you heaven’s dew and earth’s richness - abundance” (Genesis 27:27-29). ”All you need to say is "Yes' if you mean yes, "No' if you mean no; anything more than this comes from the evil one" (Jeremiah 29:11). “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:2); “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matthew 6:33) “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).
Building itself from the premise that, regarding the meaning of life and purpose of each individual on Earth, spirituality represents the beginning and end of each life-cycle, this book combines the most important words of wisdom from different sources and historical periods, not leaving any important perspective aside. Here, religion and science, among other studies and ancient traditions with thousands of years, are interrelated in an obvious, efficient and practical approach.
Beyond the philosophies of Taoism, Hinduism, Catholicism and Buddhism, as well as the theories of the Law of Attraction and Quantum Physics, it's shown here how each one of these studies is incomplete without an assimilating acknowledgment of their relation, while allowing an unveiling of the parameters of our Spiritual DNA and experiences on Earth.
This Spiritual DNA, just like our Biological DNA, is unique and personal, but included in a wider spectrum of needs and reasons, justifying its existence as an imprint of our spiritual journey throughout many lives. It is the key of life and death, the key to paradise and also to the wisdom of God.
While avoiding an esoteric or mystical description, as many other books about this topic tend to portray, this knowledge includes very specific and pragmatic methods that can easily be verified and experienced by anyone. It's all about the uniqueness of this immortal truth.
The truth about our Spiritual DNA isn't bound by any religious believe in particular, scientific recognition or social acceptance, because it is supreme to all of them. Every single event in human history and all manifestations of human intellect and creativity, have been using and demonstrating it. And, the current degenerative lifestyle, with all its violence, insanity and diseases, is a consequence of our detachment from this source of life.
The Spiritual DNA is responsible for the multiplication of our Biological DNA in more than two strings, our enlightenment and our wisdom. Studying it, is vital for the whole future of the human race and our freedom as spiritual beings.
Throughout history, many were those taking advantage of this knowledge to enslave mankind, promote themselves, create religions with millions of followers, or secret societies of very powerful individuals. But, everything changes now, with this book. This holy manual can change the world; may it start with you!
In this work, it’s intended to make known how all these dynamics function, explaining about the different elements and mechanisms inherent to the existence of a being, which interfere in structuring his soul.
It is therefore important to know how the reality is transformed and how this process affects the composition of the identity.
Written in an objective way, throughout the various chapters is presented the dynamic of spiritual energy, which interferes in the transformation of many aspects of life, how it operates according to the divine rules and how it can be developed to allow greater personal fulfillment.
The concepts used here are part of a context far beyond the common usage that often assume, to unveil a more complete and pragmatic overview of the meaning of life.
Following on the promotion of responsibility and self-knowledge, there is still a demonstration of principles that unite human action with the divine purpose, with the recognition of the spiritual flow that manifests at birth in the innate skills and determines the mission of each individual in the planet.
Throughout the various chapters, these facts allow the awareness of the meaning of existence, while deconstructing complex subjects and enabling better assimilation of the link they assume between themselves.
"Happiness is not related to the intensity, but with balance, order, rhythm and harmony" (Thomas Merton).
The science of the soul goes far beyond what modern psychology could affirm or understand, and cuts across all areas of life and personalities, in any corner of the world, because to live in wisdom "the best and safest thing to do is to maintain balance in life, recognize the great powers around us and within us" (Euripides).
Through the various chapters is possible to understand the cycles of life, how it transforms and what the influence of karma is.
It is considered as the core element of this work the fact of contributing to the learning of the divine rules and understanding of how they interact constantly in our reality.
Therefore, is enunciated a broad set of rules and how they influence the transformation of reality, in a cycle of which we are co-creators.
Among others, the topics covered are the positive and negative energy, the change of reality and consciousness, as well as the repetition of the experiences and permanence of emotions in time.
Altogether, the various chapters intend to direct to the knowledge of the path of the spirit, its challenges and the way this is all processed in a single plane, as it is our life.
It is expected that with the recognition of the values and laws set forth herein, rather than their apprehension, the reader may be able to live a life with greater control and responsibility and thus increase the proportion and magnitude of his happiness, by putting himself in the right way of life, the one which, according to this work, directs towards the creation of the universe and the supreme and universal purpose, also recognized in our material universe as God.
Although not promoting any specific form of interpretation, the philosophic principles presented here, help in the understanding of what true spirituality is and how it has been lost every time a prophet tried to recover it. In this way, anyone can prepare himself while realizing that is possible to ascend to a new reality, where life is based on honesty and compassion, not anger and resentment.
Even though the perspective described may offend many self-convinced minds, it also provides a truthful insight to the purpose of dreams, individuality and conscious manifestations through inspired actions. And that’s why it’s for those that want to be awaken, not the ones fighting-back to keep sleeping in a delusional reality. The knowledge here presented will break your concept of reality, with all its illusions, into pieces. And, as any drug would say in its prescription: There’re secondary effects to be expected. But, how far are you truly willing to go?
The Spiritual Identity;
The Acknowledgement of God;
The Perception of Happiness;
The Transversality of Pureness;
The Achievement of Immortality.
Here, the reader will find a study of these subjects in their relation to zen philosophy, allowing a better understanding of all the topics while permitting an intersection of insights from different approaches that can be related.
The content is supported by more than 20 years practicing zen meditation and its application to modern life, as well as studying the different perspectives described and applied by buddhism and its branches in India, Tibet, Japan and China.
It is in this last country that, by experiencing the life and habits of the monks inside one of their own temples, the acknowledgement of all the previous studies with different followers of buddhism starts making its connections in an approach going beyond them. More precisely, it is when observing the difficulties that even those monks have in understanding and explaining the meaning of zen and its application to daily life that the need for this book started making sense for the author.
Zen is a path, not an end, and even though many followers of buddhism may have a certain acknowledgment allowing them to achieve some light into the subject, it is difficult to find a person that can clearly describe it to others beyond his personal experience. Many would say that zen is a lonely path that cannot be described but only earned through the development of conscience and, even though this may be true, the ones that feel difficulties in their spiritual journey still need some guidance so that they may continue on their own. It is for this reason that millions of spiritual individuals seek for teachers or books that can help them and it’s for this same reason that the author has found himself many times explaining to students of zen buddhism what their books and teachers couldn’t. He has spent all his life, since a very early age, studying different religious believes from all over the world. Therefore, this book doesn’t intend to promote zen philosophy in particular or buddhism is general, but instead allow a better perception about how the practice of zen can help anyone in daily life, including in the study of different spiritual groups.
This is a book out of the box, combining the interpretation of zen with many others, so that the reader may break free from the attachments of false teachings, confusion and delusional theories; and, won’t try to represent any buddhist branch in particular, although may actually help in interpreting any of their beliefs. It is a spiritual perspective with a multitude of applications and combinations, simply because zen is not a dogma and can’t be explained by closed minds, but a life-style promoting all life. Zen is a never-ending cycle of spiritual transformation towards enlightenment.
Within this program, much truth has been suppressed, so that the world may continue in spiritual slavery, not knowing how far everyone is from the true reality being hidden below the surface. Within this reality, we can see who is creating the rules and who’s following them, noticing how fate is often just a consequence of those who change such rules.
Taking into consideration this perspective, the content of this book intends to reveal some of the biggest lies in the world, while providing the tools that allow breaking the chain of mind-slavery and realize that the real world isn’t as pretty as we would like to believe. In this awakening, we release ourselves from a zombie-like state in which the vast majority of society is being held.
In this book it’s explained how we create our reality around us, which laws define it and how can we change everything in order to obtain positive results. It also talks about faith and the importance of it, by sharing stories that allow an understanding regarding the amount of power that a person with a strong faith can achieve. Finally there are also teachings about loving our enemies and the benefits of doing it.
The whole content, with roots in many different religious philosophies, even though based in modern and real life stories, intents to promote a higher conscience in the reader, regarding how much our thoughts and paradigms influence our reality, but, most of all, how powerful we can be when learning to love ourselves and appreciate our life.
Did you know that, according to the Museum of Sex, the vibrator was originally used as a medicinal treatment for female "hysteria" during the 19th century, as it helped dissipating hysteria's anxiety-related symptoms?
This book was a major success when launched for the first time, which proves that this knowledge is as urgently needed as also rare to find. It was written for women and combines the perspective of many that were interviewed for this purpose.
As the Sex Industry grows by the millions, and the number of women and men that want to be in Adult Movies increases as well, it becomes clear that everyone has hidden ideas, believes, thoughts, habits and curiosities that, somehow, need to be satisfied. This book was created to promote an uplifting assimilation of all them, by proposing an analysis of sex that is mature, realistic, educational and insightful.
Many books in the market, promoting modern but uncomfortable sex positions in order to increase women’s pleasure, or showing them how to choose a good sex partner with the wrong rules, are far from the value that this book intends to offer. Here, you'll learn how to last longer, by knowing what to eat, drink and do, how to obtain maximum pleasure, how to have more fun and how to behave with multiple partners at the same time. Nevertheless, it doesn't forget the importance of meaningful relationships and their relation to sex, by describing the significance of its mind healing properties.
"Sex is a part of nature" (Marilyn Monroe), "energy" (Beatrice Wood) and "a conversation carried out by other means" (Peter Ustinov).
What's here referred as “he” or “she”, can always be exchanged between genders, as everything can be adapted according to the situation and the persons involved.
The purpose of the study presented is the observation of dynamics in relationships, with an understanding of how one thing leads to another, namely, seduction and sex, or communication and love.
While showing the rules of the whole game of seduction, the knowledge provided here, guides the reader towards finding an ideal partner, and live a relationship where positive feelings and experiences can be shared among two lovers.
As most perspectives taken into consideration portray a negative image of what it means to be active as a woman, most end up waiting, dreaming, forgetting and giving up fighting for their rights. And, as the world evolves and changes, the gap between reality and common believes expands, leading many to despair and suffering.
The need for women to be active and persistent in chasing their happiness has never been so important as now. But, in order to be fulfilled, a woman needs to become responsible for her own happiness.
The role of women needs to evolve with the rest of the world, and even though women have learned this lesson well in many other areas of life, not much has changed in the field of seduction, relationships and love. But, active women take their genes into the next generation, while passive women are being drawn to extinction.
The study of what it means to be an Alpha Female is not only related to behavior, appearance and relationships, or even happiness, but the whole future of mankind, because these are the women that will be ahead of their time.
Nowadays, men tend to become more passive and selective, allowing their behavior to evolve with their new status, which in most cases represents a minority. And, a decrease in the number of men available leads women to problems related to competition between themselves and selection of the best available. Therefore, it becomes important to know where and how to find one, but also keep him and know which is worth choosing and having.
Alpha Females have learned to be smart, quick and effective, in finding and choosing the man they want, not necessarily because they want to, but because they recognize the emergency of doing so, in order to avoid what other women reject. But, they have a clear advantage that won't share with other women, due to their typical competitive attitude, reason why a woman won't ever write a good book about this topic and all the best have been written by men, even though rarely covering a complete magnitude of the Alpha panorama, which as men they can't fully understand.
This book shows the path in the most complete form possible, and many women have succeeded with its application since the first edition was published. But, it's because these same women couldn't succeed with the application of many other bestsellers, that this one in particular distinguishes itself as the most efficient available today.
In order to allow a better perspective of the author’s vision, the content is presented as an honest documentary of his own life, currently reedited as a second edition.
This new edition became an obvious necessity, as the greatest reviews were coming from psychologists and social workers, claiming that this books reveals plenty of truths about the human nature that took them decades to realize by themselves. And here is one of them: "As a social worker for twenty years, I have tried to treat some full-fledged sociopaths with strong psychopathology. To my mind, the author's description above is about as good as it gets in summarizing that particular mindset” T. Bundrick (New York, USA).
The syllogism is Aristotle’s most famous contribution to logic and because any valid argument must take the form of a syllogism, his work in analyzing syllogisms provides a basis for analyzing all arguments and prove rigorously whether they are true or false, valid or invalid.
Based on the same study of syllogisms and their practical application to life, the Author proposes an analysis of relationships in modern times using deductive reasoning. Therefore, the book answers the most common questions women have regarding men, combining a total of 69 syllogisms about attraction, behavior, communication, relationships and love.
The emotional suffering and joys that such experiences bring can't be erased from memory, so it's important to confront them and analyze personal believes wisely. Such exercise requires the understanding of the purpose of love and its positive outcomes. And, even though it may be interpreted differently by each person, it can be conceptualized and redefined according to experience.
The most common approach to love is the need to share a life together with another person, which allows us to label those we meet as willing or unwilling, while being aware of who we attract and reject. This said, relationships fail when the path shared diverges into more than one single direction. However, the one being rejected knows that he or she has failed in providing something necessary for the two paths to become unified. As an example, a woman that criticizes men, makes them feel rejected and unloved, decreasing their compassion towards her. And, this happens because there's a contradiction between sharing a common purpose while holding to divergent believes.
The problem with breakups and divorces is that nobody wants to confront the problem and tell the other what went wrong, but he or she, will naturally need to make his own assumptions and conclusions, in order to find peace in his or her mind. Affairs are the most common assumptions, but even this can be justified by an unhealthy relationship, either they exist or not.
There are unknown rules in love, which lead to all kinds of difficulties related to maintaining a healthy relationship, but, if known, could allow maximizing the success of existing ones as well.
Interestingly, there’s clearly a trend of Asian women looking for foreign men, not only inside Asia but outside as well. However, when talking about Asians, there’s something we must clarify in advance, related to the fact that Asia is a combination of different countries and cultures, in some cases extremely different from each other. We tend to refer to a majority when mentioning Asian culture, which is typically represented by big countries like China, Japan and Korea. These countries clearly show a preference towards men from The United States, England, France and Spain.
This, easily observed trend, doesn’t concern foreigners in general because there’re misunderstandings about the concept. When Asians mention foreigners, they’re usually referring to North Americans and Europeans. When the topic is specified, regarding South Americans and Africans, we can notice unbalanced answers and confused reactions. Asian women cannot easily imagine a marriage with an African or a South American. These marriages do exist but we can’t call it a trend, as they’re rather a natural result of cultural interactions.
As the world opens more and we can travel to the opposite side of the globe in just a few hours on a shoestring, it’s natural that we may become more acquaint of people from different countries. This exchange between nations leads to mixed couples, for even though we may look different, deep down we’re all the same. When socializing, it’s only normal that sometimes it may end up in love, even when the initial preference and self-image doesn’t allow seeing such outcome. Life simply happens in this way; and, by understanding how it leads people from different cultures to marriage, we can find answers to any related question about this section of our reality.
We believe our world is very distinctive, when in fact can be easily comprehended with an acknowledgment of perspectives and self-awareness, as well as a choice regarding personal observations. Therefore, we may see several happily mixed couples, but they represent an evolution in the world that have existed before, was somehow forgotten in the last centuries and is currently being rediscovered. This is and has always been just a natural part of life.
It was with this principle in mind that the author has shared his insights with Voice of America, in a Radio Interview that reflected the content presented in this book.

Passionate readers had this to say regarding the content here provided:
"All women should read this book! It will give you a deep understanding of the game. I have never read a book like this one, it was insightful and extremely informative. I would recommend to others" (Grayle Tompkins);
"Excellent! We all need this information to keep our relationship strong and interesting" (Brock Kennedy);
"I wanted a relationship, but always ended up in heartbroken. To find love, I followed relationship gurus, traveled and meditated, but nothing worked. Gradually, I figured out that my problem comes from the loss of who I am. I want to be a happy and attractive woman, but I was unconsciously being rude and rough to the opposite sex. This book waked me up and I realized that I was exactly the woman no man wants to be with. After applying the principles described about Alpha Women, I started receiving help from male friends and customers and my life gets easier wherever I go. However, this book is not only about playing tricks to get what you want. It's about taking responsibility for our own happiness. Girls, read this book! Embrace who you are and be an Alpha Woman, not for men or anyone in the world, but for yourself!" (Faith Zimmer, CEO of Solar Creation).
The concept of Alpha Female has been widely applied in magazines, websites, television, advertisements and books to misinform women regarding the ideal behavior they should have. However, the same doesn't happen to the description of Alpha Male, which finds social recognition and consent among experts.
An Alpha Male is often associated with masculinity, confidence and popularity, while the Alpha Female is commonly interpreted as a bitch, feminist, hooker or lesbian.
The discrimination of independent women pursuing their dreams, distorts the understanding of what a woman should be, appear or do, leading to confusion about what men really want. And, while the Publishing, Movie and Marketing Industries profit from the problem with cosmetics and romantic novels, women suffer from the pressure received from peers, relatives and relationships.
Taking this reality into account, a research was conducted in order to understand why women aren't happy and which believes lead to such outcome. At the same time, results were compared with those of women that get more from life and are able to obtain the relationships they always wanted.
An analysis of both situations allows a clear observation of which qualities and behaviors a woman should have, leading to the organization of the most important, based on the success of those that have applied this knowledge to change their life and conquer their dreams.
Among many social myths, the following chapters will allow an understanding of why some women, independently of their looks and personality, can easily marry the best men, while others aren't able to keep their own relationships for a long time.
Special skills are in demand, due to the amount of lies that have been brainwashing the female brain for the past decades. And, although books and magazines about relationships and seduction are easily found, nearly none presents a realistic and practical definition of Alpha Female.
Reality shows that a princess doesn't live happily ever after without the right prince, she'll have competition on the way, he won't choose the best woman and, if she can't actively pursue him, will end up with a frog, which may in the end cheat with somebody else.
Women tend to surpass men in numbers in many social circles, meaning that they risk more if not being competitive. “Life’s a Bitch; you’ve got to go out and kick ass” (Maya Angelou).
Destined to the most determined and smartest women, this book shows how to study men, understand their behaviors and select the best. It's an opportunity to rebuild character, increase self-esteem, gain responsibility and expand in wisdom about relationships.
The choice in agreeing with what this books provides implies the acceptance of the right to chase men and refuse the consequences of not doing so, such as waiting forever for the best to fall from the sky.
“A woman is like a tea bag; you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her on hot water” (Eleanor Roosevelt).
Children are extremely vulnerable to this kind of brainwashing, which later ends up not only affecting their future but also conditioning their entire life in a fatalistic way. “I don’t deserve”, “It’s not for me”, “I don’t have what is needed” or “I’m a bad person”, among others, are expressions, feelings and thoughts, that dominate the mind of a person affected by the effects of such mechanism.
The name of this syndrome isn’t as important here as the context from which it’s acquired and the beliefs that ends up creating in many adults, which then govern their life unaware of this influence. Therefore, it is not the intention of this book to provide a psychiatric explanation to the phenomena, which can assume multiple interpretations, making the diagnosis often difficult, but rather provide a wider approach and practical insight about the topic, as well as help parents in analyzing the dangers before they even start to manifest. This is also a book dedicated to help those that feel hopeless in life or unable to get a proper relationship, as the recognition of the problem represents the first and most important step to solve it. It’s better to know it than not knowing and allow this mind programming to continue, with movies that tend to insist in repeating the same strategy.
Most of what we’re told to believe, our values and guiding morals, were imposed on us from an early age, and then reinforced with education and the media. Knowing how fairy-tales determine our life is just the first step in freeing our mind.
The poems were written in the order that they are presented, allowing to see a cycle of interrelated dynamics in which the author is sometimes one of the characters and, in others, an observer.
Within a posture of humility and simplicity, the poems reflect various perspectives, namely, the darkest stages of a romance. It’s another poetic work in response to the success of other writings by the same author.
This kind of discrimination can still be seen in modern times. The reasons may not be clear but, if we get to know writers in person or live with one of them, we’ll easily see that the world merely fears and judges what is not yet easy to comprehend in its magnificence and majesty.
Writers are changing the world and have always done it, because they hold special qualities difficult to be found in other humans. They’re the gates of heaven’s knowledge, the channelers of parallel realities, the daydreamers of social desires, the bridges to humanity’s subconscious and the architects of imagination.
Without creative writers, critic writers, technical writers, or any others, the world couldn’t easily transform by itself. The reason is that, even though we are all born with the ability to feel and imagine, writers are the ones pushing the rest several steps ahead in these qualities. They show us paths, different perspectives, the most hidden sources of our unlimited mind and, in doing so, they also help us build ourselves into more complete and advanced beings.
The Holy Bible states that “truth will set you free.” (John 8:32) but this truth can only be reached with knowledge, which is obtained with the understanding of how it’s built in its logic.
For thousands of years we’ve build ourselves in such a way that we ended up trapped in our own knowledge. But who can set us free, beyond creators, imitators and exposers of knowledge? Writers have been releasing the world of its misconceptions and misunderstandings. Nonetheless, many pseudo-writers, or individuals inspired into becoming writers, have been confused with such uplifting souls.
Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost.
That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices.
Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology’s causes grew increasingly intertwined. As an adult, she found the success she’d worked so hard for, and with it a prominent place in the hierarchy of celebrity Scientologists alongside people such as Tom Cruise, Scientology’s most high-profile adherent. Remini spent time directly with Cruise and was included among the guests at his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes.
But when she began to raise questions about some of the church’s actions, she found herself a target. In the end, she was declared by the church to be a threat to their organization and therefore a “Suppressive Person,” and as a result, all of her fellow parishioners—including members of her own family—were told to disconnect from her. Forever.
Bold, brash, and bravely confessional, Troublemaker chronicles Leah Remini’s remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family. This is a memoir designed to reveal the hard-won truths of a life lived honestly—from an author unafraid of the consequences.
Praise for Troublemaker

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SPIRITUALITY & HEALTH
The practice of hatha yoga, as we commonly know it, is but one of eight branches of the body of knowledge that is yoga. In fact, yoga is a sophisticated system of self-empowerment that is capable of harnessing and activating inner energies in such a way that your body and mind function at their optimal capacity. It is a means to create inner situations exactly the way you want them, turning you into the architect of your own joy.
A yogi lives life in this expansive state, and in this transformative book Sadhguru tells the story of his own awakening, from a boy with an unusual affinity for the natural world to a young daredevil who crossed the Indian continent on his motorcycle. He relates the moment of his enlightenment on a mountaintop in southern India, where time stood still and he emerged radically changed. Today, as the founder of Isha, an organization devoted to humanitarian causes, he lights the path for millions. The term guru, he notes, means “dispeller of darkness, someone who opens the door for you. . . . As a guru, I have no doctrine to teach, no philosophy to impart, no belief to propagate. And that is because the only solution for all the ills that plague humanity is self-transformation. Self-transformation means that nothing of the old remains. It is a dimensional shift in the way you perceive and experience life.” The wisdom distilled in this accessible, profound, and engaging book offers readers time-tested tools that are fresh, alive, and radiantly new. Inner Engineering presents a revolutionary way of thinking about our agency and our humanity and the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

His book is filled with moments of wonder, awe, and intellectual challenge. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in self-transformation.”—Mark Hyman, M.D., director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, and New York Times bestselling author
“Inner Engineering is a fascinating read of Sadhguru’s insights and his teachings. If you are ready, it is a tool to help awaken your own inner intelligence, the ultimate and supreme genius that mirrors the wisdom of the cosmos.”—Deepak Chopra

A clear-sighted revelation, a deep penetration into the world of Scientology by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Looming Tower, the now-classic study of al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack. Based on more than two hundred personal interviews with current and former Scientologists—both famous and less well known—and years of archival research, Lawrence Wright uses his extraordinary investigative ability to uncover for us the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.
At the book’s center, two men whom Wright brings vividly to life, showing how they have made Scientology what it is today: The darkly brilliant science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, whose restless, expansive mind invented a new religion. And his successor, David Miscavige—tough and driven, with the unenviable task of preserving the church after the death of Hubbard.
We learn about Scientology’s complicated cosmology and special language. We see the ways in which the church pursues celebrities, such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta, and how such stars are used to advance the church’s goals. And we meet the young idealists who have joined the Sea Org, the church’s clergy, signing up with a billion-year contract.
In Going Clear, Wright examines what fundamentally makes a religion a religion, and whether Scientology is, in fact, deserving of this constitutional protection. Employing all his exceptional journalistic skills of observation, understanding, and shaping a story into a compelling narrative, Lawrence Wright has given us an evenhanded yet keenly incisive book that reveals the very essence of what makes Scientology the institution it is.

Someone has said that prayer is not about overcoming God’s reluctance, but about laying hold of His willingness. This can also be said of healing ministry ~ it is not about overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness to heal. God’s willingness is seen in His Word, where He has repeatedly revealed His desire to heal His people. The format of healing Scriptures and healing prayers is designed to help you lay hold of God’s willingness to heal you by laying hold of His Word and praying it back to Him in faith.
The Bible says that “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). The Word of God reveals the will of God, and so enables us to pray effectively. “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14-15). Healing is the will of God for His people, as these Scriptures show, so you can pray confidently, knowing that He hears you, and that you will receive your healing. In this book you will discover:
• God’s healing words in the Old Testament
• How healing is revealed in the names of God
• Choosing life
• God’s healing words in the New Testament
• The healing ministry of Jesus
• The healing ministry of the disciples
• Life restoration stories in the Bible
• How healing is revealed in the name of Jesus
• The Lord’s Prayer as healing prayer
• The Lord’s Supper as healing prayer
This is also a great tool to help you minister healing to others.

follow-up to his bestseller The War of Art, Turning Pro navigates the
passage from the amateur life to a professional practice.
"You don't need to take a course or buy a product. All you have to do is change your mind."
TURNING PRO IS FREE, BUT IT'S NOT EASY.
we turn pro, we give up a life that we may have become extremely
comfortable with. We give up a self that we have come to identify with
and to call our own.
TURNING PRO IS FREE, BUT IT DEMANDS SACRIFICE.
passage from amateur to professional is often achieved via an interior
odyssey whose trials are survived only at great cost, emotionally,
psychologically and spiritually. We pass through a membrane when we turn
pro. It's messy and it's scary. We tread in blood when we turn pro.
WHAT WE GET WHEN WE TURN PRO.
we get when we turn pro is we find our power. We find our will and our
voice and we find our self-respect. We become who we always were but
had, until then, been afraid to embrace and live out.
Rock star, crowdfunding pioneer, and TED speaker Amanda Palmer knows all about asking. Performing as a living statue in a wedding dress, she wordlessly asked thousands of passersby for their dollars. When she became a singer, songwriter, and musician, she was not afraid to ask her audience to support her as she surfed the crowd (and slept on their couches while touring). And when she left her record label to strike out on her own, she asked her fans to support her in making an album, leading to the world's most successful music Kickstarter.
Even while Amanda is both celebrated and attacked for her fearlessness in asking for help, she finds that there are important things she cannot ask for-as a musician, as a friend, and as a wife. She learns that she isn't alone in this, that so many people are afraid to ask for help, and it paralyzes their lives and relationships. In this groundbreaking book, she explores these barriers in her own life and in the lives of those around her, and discovers the emotional, philosophical, and practical aspects of THE ART OF ASKING.
Part manifesto, part revelation, this is the story of an artist struggling with the new rules of exchange in the twenty-first century, both on and off the Internet. THE ART OF ASKING will inspire readers to rethink their own ideas about asking, giving, art, and love.

The evidence is clear to any who are willing to view the record: Anton LaVey brought Satan out of the closet and the Church of Satan is the fountainhead of contemporary Satanism.

The Source Field Investigations was a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller that uncovered hidden science and lost prophecies to illuminate an entirely new understanding of our world today. In his new book, The Synchronicity Key, Wilcock embarks on an astonishing investigation into what lies beyond this new understanding of our how our universe works—finding proof that everything in our lives is not only connected, it all influences everything else.
Using history, astrology, and synchronicity theory as well as concepts such as microgravitational structuring, spiritual geometry, quantum physics, and other new research, Wilcock shows that there is a hidden architecture within time, guiding individuals and nations through a system of enlightenment Joseph Campbell called the Hero’s Journey. Historical events occur in shockingly precise, repeating cycles of time as a result. Once we understand and identify the hidden laws governing the fates of individuals and nations through seemingly random “synchronicity,” we are left with a remarkable blueprint of how best to lead our lives in this seemingly uncertain and confusing world.
