About the author

Guy Finley was born February 22, 1949 in Los Angeles California. At a young age, he decided to pursue a music career. He became the first white soft rock artist signed to the Motown Records label. Several of his songs were recorded by popular artists including Diana Ross, the Jackson 5, and Debbie Boone in the 1970s. In spite of this growing good fortune early in his professional life, Finley has said he still felt something was missing in his personal life. Trying to fill this void, he abandoned his music career and left for India and the Far East in 1979 to study spiritual teachings and the principles of self-awareness. By the early 1980s, Finley's search for spiritual awakening had led him back to the United States where he became a devoted student of spiritual teacher Vernon Howard at the New Life Foundation in Boulder City, Nevada. In the early 1990s, with Howard's encouragement, he began a new career as an author of spiritual guidance books. His teachings draw from many different spiritual traditions and philosophies including: Christian mysticism and various Eastern philosophies. In addition to his writing, Finley teaches inner-life classes at the Life of Learning Foundation in Merlin, Oregon. He also hosts a monthly live call-in radio program, Guy Finley Live on HealthyLife.net.

Seeker's Guide to Self-Freedom

Truths for Living

by Guy Finley

There's a reason why we all love stories about ancient maps, sunken ships, and buried treasure. It's because these tales reflect a deep sensing we all have: that a hidden treasure actually dwells within us -- and if we could just find the way to discover it, our lives would shine every day with life's greatest wealth: the golden qualities of true confidence, unbounded energy, unfailing wisdom, and genuine love.

If you have the intuition -- or even just the wish -- that such a marvelous treasure really does exist at the very core of your being, then rest assured that you are correct. And it doesn't matter whether you've actually seen it in yourself, whether anyone else you know has it, or if your friends or relatives believe it exists. That strong, fearless, and successful self does indeed live within you. And even as you're reading this, it's waiting to be released.

No matter what your life has been like until now, and as remarkable as it may seem, there truly is a part of you that can:

Meet each day with complete confidence that there's nothing to fear, ever!

Love fully and without reservation

Always know the right thing to do

Overcome any problem life tosses your way

Be propelled by the endless force and power of the present moment

If you have yet to realize such splendid bounties in your life, it isn't because these treasures aren't real, or that they aren't fully available to you in all their creative energy. It just means that you haven't yet found their hidden source within yourself!

Just like the fabled treasure hunters who have ignited our imaginations since childhood, finding that hidden treasure within us requires going on an adventure of discovery -- inner discovery. And when setting off on a treasure hunt, the key to success is having a living map.

The happy truth is that there is just such a map, and it's yours for the asking! You see, the way to the buried treasure of our true self has always been known. It's been passed down through the ages by the wise ones who have sought out and found the treasure for themselves. Throughout history the precious map has surfaced in a variety of forms, providing the chance for each one of us to follow our own personal path to fulfilling the true purpose of our life.

For all of us who wish to find the effortless happiness and understanding for which we are meant, this map is available today. It is Guy Finley's powerful book, Seeker's Guide to Self-Freedom: Truths for Living. This is the book that has taken thousands of grateful readers, step by step, on the journey that helped them realize a whole new life. If you will use this map yourself -- with all its generous, well-marked roads and signposts along the way -- you will soon uncover these genuine inner riches, and more:

Go beyond the limitations of thought

Break out of self-punishing patterns

Grow in relationship with higher Love

Be relieved of all fear and worry

Nurture your unshakable, true nature

The unique format of Seeker's Guide to Self-Freedom makes it easy for you to master the special information and tools you need to attain a liberated spirit and higher success. Each chapter begins with an explanation of a critical milestone on the path to higher self-understanding. This is followed by a series of questions and answers -- real questions that have been asked by others who -- like yourself -- are actively seeking a more fulfilling and meaningful life. And then each chapter concludes with a targeted exercise that you can put into practice immediately to ensure swift progress.

It's a fact: If you follow the true map of higher knowledge and instruction outlined in Seeker's Guide to Self-Freedom, it won't be long before you realize the life whose cornerstones are peace, fearlessness, and love!

Design Your DestinyShape Your Future in 12 Easy Steps

by Guy Finley

Whether we know it or not, we create the content and the quality of our own lives moment-to-moment. In fact, you are creating and experiencing your destiny even as you read this. Which means that what you think of being your future is really the choices you are making -- and experiencing -- right now. To understand this truth is to unlock the treasure of your True Self, and gain the abundance of a mind and heart that cannot compromise yourself, or anyone else.

Think for a moment about this next question. Your answer to it will determine your destiny. Which would you rather have: a life whose unhappiness is offset by temporary pleasures won at the cost of your health and relationships with others, or a life that is permanently enriched by being able to transform whatever makes you unhappy into true spiritual abundance?

If you have chosen the latter of these two distinct paths through this life of ours then Guy Finley's book Design Your Destiny: Shape Your Future in 12 Easy Steps may well prove to be the most significant book you will ever read.

Design Your Destiny will show you how to take charge of the strong and subtle forces that, until now, have been secretly deciding your life choices without your consent. And once you take back rightful control of your own life, newfound powers of self-command will be yours to use as you wish. And as the wise ones have taught all through the ages: the one who commands him or herself, commands the world.

As you work with the down-to-earth practices described in this book, you'll marvel as:

*

Fears, doubts, and worries about tomorrow start to fade away

*

You enjoy new enthusiasm and real love for life

*

Your present moments fill with assurance, wisdom, and strength

*

The problems of the past lose their grip on your heart and mind

*

Stress and insecurity are replaced by relaxed confidence

Design Your Destiny will provide you with all of the instructions you need to make the journey to the invisible world within, and take possession and command of your own thoughts and feelings. What an adventure awaits you once you gain the powers needed to design your own destiny!

Freedom From the Ties That Bind

by Guy Finley

Think for a moment what your life would be like if you lived in a world where reality and your happiness were one and the same -- where everything that happened in your life was always just what you wanted. Imagine it!

No event, no condition could do anything but contribute to your well-being. Every day, everyone and everything would work in your favor. And since your contentment in this new world arises from the procession of its natural events, your greatest pleasure would be to just let go, and let life flow by as it pleases.

Could there be such a world where contentment isn't just the momentary absence of conflict? Is there really a peaceful place where love and happiness aren't just the flip side of a constantly spinning coin? Yes! And we're much closer to this higher world than first thoughts might allow. In fact, this realm where wholeness rules is right within each of us. But perhaps you already sense the truth of this. Most do. At one level or another all of us know that our lives are incomplete; that our real Home is yet to be found.

But sensing there's a higher world and standing within it are vastly different. What we don't understand is how to reach the door to this kingdom, open it, and walk in. Too bold? Not at all! Only to our own conditioned and captive consciousness does the idea of full freedom sound impossible. Its unspoken, but pervasive, attitude toward life is to find ways to make the best of a bad situation; to not rock the boat at any cost. And so, almost without a question, we've all paid the price. But no longer.

Settling for anything less than complete self liberation is like agreeing to spend your life on a well-appointed slave ship -- where rowing duties are only every other week! Stop thinking in terms of finding ways to improve any life that includes feelings of compulsory servitude. Begin the process of becoming fully conscious of another kind of Life altogether. That's what Freedom From The Ties That Bind is all about.

This book of breakthrough, self-liberating secrets will show you how to be free of punishing patterns, be fully independent, and put your life in perfect order!

Customer Comments About This Product...

"Not only did my stress disappear I started feeling WONDERFUL. So far on my journey, this is the most valuable lesson. I feel as though a door has opened that I've been pounding on for years, perhaps lifetimes. Just in one day the difference is already amazing. I've committed myself to remain awake at all times and people smile at me everywhere I go, speak and say hello. They can SEE, sense and FEEL what's going on inside me. What a gift this is. Thank you for that book. I thank the Free Mind within me for guiding me to it."

— Lauren R., Asheville, NC

Consider what you usually think of as being the cause of pain or dissatisfaction in your life. Maybe a betraying friend, shaky finances, a difficult workplace, or perhaps a past issue that still punishes you? And why it is that with all you've done to shake this suffering out of your life, it still survives?

Now think about those moments in your life highlighted by happiness. Why are these seldom-enough times so temporary? Why should simply enjoying life seem so hard?

There is an answer to these questions that all of us have asked; a secret answer that at once dispels the darkness of a thousand defeats and that provides a way to lasting contentment and self-renewing happiness. Watch how quickly your whole life changes for the better after you discover this secret answer! Here's a hint. Everything hinges upon your awareness of this one simple truth:

Freedom from what is unwanted by you begins with awakening to what is unseen within you.

The enemy behind your life problems is not who, or what, you think. It does not live outside of you, but dwells within your own present mind.

Without your knowledge, invisible psychological characters inhabit your inner being and make choices for you -- choices that work against your real life interests. Applying this book's higher principles to your life helps you to expose and dismiss these self-compromising characters and reveals the truth about who you really are. The freedom you've longed for follows. You'll learn to align yourself with life's secret direction, which invites the greatest power in the universe to take your side.

Welcome to the most extraordinary adventure of your life. You are about to meet and defeat the intimate enemy. Victory is guaranteed. As you learn the inside story about what's been defeating you, you'll escape the circle of self, shatter self-limitation, and discover a whole new kind of inner success!
