The Law of Attraction is one of the most popular topics in the area of self-help. At the same time, it is also one of the most misunderstood. Why is that? There are three main reasons: First, there are hundreds of Law of Attraction books available, and most either rehash the same information or completely differ on what they teach, which results in confusion. Second, the big-name "experts" on the Law of Attraction never teach the real secrets in their books, as they mainly try to convince you to enroll in their expensive courses, which supposedly teach the real secrets. And lastly, the majority of Law of Attraction books are either motivational and/or inspirational while lacking practicality.
In this economic recession, people more than ever need the Law of Attraction to find a new job, earn more money, or simply to improve their lives. What exactly is the Law of Attraction? Plain and simple, it is the process of tapping into the hidden powers of our subconscious mind to "manifest" what we desire into our physical reality. Total Law Of Attraction explains in plain language that it’s our emotions, not so much our thoughts, that play a greater role in attracting what we want. Total Law Of Attraction avoids the need to search through many different Law of Attraction books to get the most important information. In one book, Dr. David Che has made the most powerful secrets of the Law of Attraction accessible for any individual who seeks them.
This book, copublished with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), offers a frank and friendly discussion of consciousness and how we can develop it. In part one, he examines the notion of self and the inner dialogue we all live with. Part two examines the experience of energy as it flows through us and works to show readers how to open their hearts to the energy of experience that permeates their lives. Ways to overcome tendencies to close down to the rest of the world are the subject of part three. Enlightenment, the embrace of universal consciousness, is the subject of part four. And finally, in part five, Singer returns to daily life and the pursuit of unconditional happiness. Throughout, the book maintains a light and engaging tone, free from heavy dogma and prescriptive religious references. The easy exercises that figure in each chapter help readers experience the ideas that Singer presents.

A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?
When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think"). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.
In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.
As a traditional psychotherapist, Dr. Brian Weiss was astonished and skeptical when one of his patients began recalling past-life traumas that seemed to hold the key to her recurring nightmares and anxiety attacks. His skepticism was eroded, however, when she began to channel messages from the “space between lives,” which contained remarkable revelations about Dr. Weiss’ family and his dead son. Using past-life therapy, he was able to cure the patient and embark on a new, more meaningful phase of his own career. With more than one million copies in print, Many Lives, Many Masters is one of the breakthrough texts in alternative psychotherapy and remains as provocative and timeless as it was when first published.
