How can you prolong your life as much as you desire? These are essential questions, and you should always know the answers. You should be able to lose weight and maintain good health easily since your body and mind can remain proper and fit, as long as they are not harmed or unbalanced. …And even when they are harmed or unbalanced, your body and mind can still recover on their own, to offer you good health, vitality, and a beautiful appearance.

Yes, but what can you do? …Because you have tried it all and you still gain weight, you feel weak many times, depressed, and you even get sick. Is it your fault? …Then why does it happen to everybody? Why is everybody sick, weak, tired, overweight, wrinkled, on stimulants, on medication, and on all drugs? Why can you not remain healthy indefinitely, the way you should, and the way your body and mind are supposed to offer? …Because many times, your body and mind remain affected indefinitely, and they cannot recover. …And now, in order for you to have your good health, vitality, happiness, and good appearance, you have to find out what harms your body and mind, you find out what keeps them unbalanced, and you cure or solve that.

…What exactly do you find and cure? These main causes. …Because throughout life, and throughout the world, you have causes generating effects generating causes generating effects and so on in very large lines of causality, and this is why you have to find these first causes, the main problems generating the entire line of causality interfering with your health, vitality, looks, feelings, and bodily shape. Otherwise, you end up solving effects and symptoms but not main causes, these keep manifesting, and your mind and body are doomed to remain unhealthy, weak, and unattractive indefinitely. …And people live life in this manner, and many times, people die for these main causes, for these hidden, ignored, or unidentified main causes. …And these main dreadful causes are many, found in all domains of life and society.

There are many factors affecting your health, feelings, and appearance, factors that are many times extrinsic in nature, originating in Society for example, or in Finance, Science, Agriculture, Business, Education, Politics, Entertainment and so on, to cause you to get sick today, and to make you feel weak, tired, old, and overweight. …Yet it is not enough to avoid these extrinsic harmful factors while attempting to maintain your health and vitality, since as you notice, you have to know everything about the human mind, body, health, nutrition, fitness, life, Science, and Society in order to lose weight, stay in shape, and lead a healthy life. …And you have to summate this knowledge in a comprehensive model for the human health, feelings, reasoning, behavior, meaning, appearance, and wellbeing, which is exactly what you find in this book and throughout this entire book series.

This book teaches you everything about health, nutrition, and fitness to help you remain slim, healthy, vigorous, happy, vibrant, and attractive throughout life. You may learn about all problems and illnesses in health and nutrition, and how to avoid them. If you are searching for the perfect program and lifestyle offering you health, good looks, fitness, youth, and vitality, this book is for you.

Your confidence can crumble upon losing things in the key practical areas of your life.  You might feel a shattering of self-worth when you lose your job, a relationship, a friend, or your home. It’s interesting to note how losing a material or physical possession affects your confidence and sense of self-worth.  It can cause you to lose interest in activities in life you once enjoyed. You may become bed ridden and depressed. You cancel plans, ignore phone calls, and are unreachable for a period of time.  In those instances that your confidence is shattered by a material or physical loss, then that’s when your soul’s built-in confidence is needed more than ever.


It has been insisted upon you to base your confidence and self-worth on the things you’ve achieved and attained when it is the reverse that is the case.  You bring out your soul’s confidence first, and then use that as the driving force to achieve. When you lose anything of value that negatively affects your confidence, self-esteem and self-worth, then make that the driving force that propels you to rise up into confident warrior mode.  Stand strong under the powerful Divine Light allowing it to be the nourishment your soul feeds off of that helps you move into manifesting a fearless assertive confidence.


Manifesting Fearless Assertive Confidence is a motivational and inspirational practical spiritual guide to propel you bravely forward on your soul’s Earthly journey.  Some of the topics discussed include: Combatting Fear, Standing in your Divine Soul Power, Stomping Out the Darkness of Fear, Gossip, and Anger, Identifying Blocks to Abundance and Blessings, Becoming the Chief Executive of Your Life, Optimistic Visualization, Getting Enthusiastic, Taking Action, Partaking in Pleasing Work, Knowing You Are Worthy and Deserving of Blessings, Awakening Your Creative Spirit, Rising into Creative Confidence, Balancing Selfishness, Selflessness, Assertiveness, Stepping into your Soul’s Authority, and much more!

Your vibration is made up of undetectable cells to the human eye, but visible to the spiritual eye.  It is an invisible energy field that exists within your soul's aura and physical body.  These cells fluctuate and change colors depending on your mood, your thought processes, your actions, who you surround yourself with, as well as what you ingest into your body.   You are in control of this vibration energy field able to oversee and dictate how well you would like it to function through your life choices.  A raised soul consciousness gives you wider psychic perception that allows room for stronger cognitive input.  This is the area where divinely guided information from above falls into and is planted.
