Crystal Skulls

Judy Hall

9781578635948Crystal skulls are human-skull hardstone carvings often made of clear or milky white quartz known as “rock crystal.” They are allegedly pre-Columbian Mesoamerican artifacts and can be found in the permanent collections of a number of world-class museums, including the Smithsonian and the British Museum.

In occult and metaphysical circles, the skulls have magical and healing qualities:

  • Anna Mitchell-Hedges (owner of a particularly famous skull) claimed that the skull could cause visions and cure cancer and that its magical properties could be used to kill.
  • Drunvalo Melchizedek claims in Serpent of Light that he stumbled upon descendants of the ancient Mayans who possess crystal skulls for use in religious ceremonies in Yucatan temples.
  • Jamie Sams writes of the skulls’ association with Native American mythology.

In this book, best-selling occultist and crystal expert Judy Hall provides a basic primer on crystal skulls:

  • What they are
  • Where they are found
  • Their role in legend and lore around the world
  • Their uses for physical and psychic healing

Also included here in this stunning introductory text is an examination of the prominent “skull keepers” of the past 100 years and how to use and communicate with a crystal skull.

This is a terrific book for those interested in occult and ancient mysteries and/or the power of gems and crystals.

Let Your Spirit Guides Speak

Debra Landwehr Engle

“This book is going to be a valuable tool for people who are serious about their spiritual journey. It’s one of those topics that people can’t get enough of and I want to thank Debra for taking on a huge topic in such a beautiful way.” —Echo Bodine, author of My Big Book of Healing and Echoes of the Soul

“If you want to learn ways to connect with your spirit guides, Debra Engle has provided the map to do so. It outlines ways to do so which are accompanied by stories and examples that illustrate these ways. IT is a must have for spiritual seekers!” —Dr. Steven Farmer, international author, spiritual psychotherapist and shamanic healer

9781571747402This is a clear and thoughtful introduction to building relationships with your spirit guides. It shows readers how helpful spirit guides and angels can be in everything from the simplest to the most challenging of life decisions and how easy they are to connect with, too.

Our spirit guides help us to:

  • Fulfill our purpose
  • Make decisions that will move us forward faster
  • Stop sabotaging ourselves as well as judging ourselves and everyone else
  • Remember that we are more than our job or house or relationship
  • See ourselves as beautiful and everything in life as a gift
  • Give ourselves and everybody else a break
  • Keep growing until the day we leave our bodies behind
  • Go beyond the life we hoped for and onto the life we never even imagined

And they do all of these things when we’re ready and not a nanosecond before. They also often come quietly. As the author states: ”If we expect help from Spirit to arrive with the sound of trumpets and blinding light, we’ll overlook all the nuanced help that’s delivered in small ways every day.”

Goodbye, Hurt & Pain

Deborah Sandella, PhD, RN, Foreword by Jack Canfield

“Wonderful and profound. This book will touch you intimately and probably change your life.” ̶ Jack Canfield, from the foreword

“If you want to live the most inspired life possible, you will need to deal with your amazing emotions. And Deb Sandella provides a groundbreaking, magical, and credible approach to instantaneously shifting our feelings. Mark this day–because this is a powerful process you’re going to use again and again.” –Tama Kieves, USA Today featured visionary career catalyst and best-selling author of A Year without Fear: 365 Days of Magnificence (Tarcher/Penguin) http://www.TamaKieves.com

“In her new book Goodbye Hurt and Pain: 7 Simple Steps to Health, Love, and Success Dr. Deborah Sandella offers life-changing steps to a better life. It’s a must-read!” —Sheri Fink, Inspirational Speaker

This book is uplifting and inspiring.” —Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason

9781573246781In Goodbye, Hurt and Pain, Deborah Sandella uses cutting-edge neuroscience research and her revolutionary Regenerating Images in Memory (RIM) technique to show how blocked feelings prevent us from getting what we want, and she introduces a process that bypasses logic and thinking to activate our own emotional “self-cleaning oven.” Using imagination, color, and shape to visualize feelings and get straight to the root of longstanding problems, she teaches us to move destructive feelings such as fear, anger, hurt, resentment, and envy out of the body. Letting go of old feelings and traumatic memory at a deep, cellular level makes people feel and look younger, lighter, more energized, and less burdened. And they can begin to experience results after just one or two self-directed sessions.

Goodbye, Hurt and Pain also provides seven organic ways of using your feelings to attract more love, better health, and greater success. The process is fast, fun, and as easy as 1-2-3.

Man, Interrupted

Philip Zimbardo and Nikita Coloumbe

Man, Interrupted is the most important book I’ve read in years, given that it is thoroughly researched, well-organized, beautifully written, and outlines a problem that affects at least half the population of the country, if not everyone. Even more, it identifies the causes and suggests practical solutions. This book should be read by legislators, judges, politicians, parents, spouses and, well, men…all of them.”
—Michael Shermer, Publisher Skeptic magazine, columnist Scientific American, author of The Moral Arc.

“In this entertaining, sobering, and thought-provoking book, Dr. Zimbardo bravely and wisely calls attention to the spreading crisis afflicting many of America’s young men.” —Roy Baumeister, author ofIs There Anything Good About Men? and Willpower

Man Interrupted: Why Young Men Are Struggling And What We Can Do About It is a compassionate look at the phenomenon of young men disappearing into the virtual worlds of videogaming and porn – to the detriment of everyone. Authors Zimbardo and Coulombe don’t simply supply evidence of the risks and benefits of today’s hyper-alluring technologies. They also tackle contributing factors, such as absent dads, failing schools, environmental toxins, economic realities, etc., and offer a range of suggestions for parents, media, governments, men, women and schools.” —Gary Wilson, author of Your Brain On Porn: Internet Pornography and the Emerging Science of Addiction

9781573246897In 2011, Philip Zimbardo gave a TED Talk called “The Demise of Guys,” which has been viewed by over 1.8 million people. A TED eBook short followed that chronicled how in record numbers men are flaming out academically and failing socially and sexually with women. This new book is an expansion of that brief polemic based on Zimbardo’s observations, research, and the survey that was completed by over 20,000 viewers of the original TED Talk.

The premise here is that we are facing a not-so-brave new world; a world in which young men are getting left behind. Philip Zimbardo and Nikita Coulombe say that an addiction to video games and online porn have created a generation of shy, socially awkward, emotionally removed, and risk-adverse young men who are unable (and unwilling) to navigate the complexities and risks inherent to real-life relationships, school, and employment. Taking a critical look at a problem that is tearing at families and societies everywhere, Man, Interrupted suggests that our young men are suffering from a new form of “arousal addiction,” and introduce a bold new plan for getting them back on track.

The concluding chapters offer a set of solutions that can be affected by different segments of society including schools, parents, and young men themselves.

Filled with telling anecdotes, results of fascinating research, perceptive analysis, and concrete suggestions for change, Man, Interrupted is a book for our time. It is a book that informs, challenges, and ultimately inspires.

Enough!

Laurie McCammon

“There are days when I really want to shriek “Enough is Enough” about the madness our world has become. And then–like a breath of fresh air–along comes Laurie McGammon’s marvelous book to show us just how we got into ‘too much’ and all its consequences, and just how simple it is to get off the roller coaster and into a more peaceful and loving life ride. This book is a must for a saner and more caring future. ” —Elisabet Sahtouris, PhD, evolution biologist and futurist; author of EarthDance and Gaia’s Dance

9781573246835Do you, like so many of us, believe that you will never have enough time, money, talent, or love to be truly happy? Do you think you’re not good enough, not rich enough or thin enough or smart enough, to have the life you want? Or that the problems in your community and the world around you could be solved if only there were more to go around? Everywhere, all the time, we get this message that there is something lacking, something more, something better to strive for. In fact, the idea that there isn’t enough or you aren’t enough is so deeply ingrained in us and into our culture that it holds sway over pretty much every aspect of our lives, from how we perceive our self-worth and our skills as parents, friends, and partners (I am not enough) to the ways in which we are taught and governed.

But what if it’s a lie? Author and activist Laurie McCammon wrote this book to show you that it is all a lie. Discover how your own never-enough thinking has been limiting you and how to challenge it in all the places it lurks. Let Laurie show you how to develop a sense of enoughness that can change not only how you feel about yourself but how you view time, your relationships, your work, and the possibilities for helping to shape a better world.

Gentle Energy Touch

Barbara Savin

“Science tells us that energy is real. It can’t be created, and it can’t be destroyed, but it can be harnessed. Barbara has a very blessed way of moving energy. She is a servant of goodwill and promoting light.” —Pharrell Williams

“I have sent countless friends to Barbara, and I am thrilled that she can share her gifts with you through this book.” —Pat Benatar, 4-time Grammy winner

“A fantastic book for anyone curious about energy healing. This is the book I was looking for thirty years ago when I began my journey as a psychic medium and healer. This is the secret that is ready to be unleashed, and thanks to Barbara the information is now available to anyone willing to read it.” –Sunny Dawn Johnston, author of Invoking the Archangels and The Love Never Ends: Messages from the Other Side

9781573246798Imagine being able to utilize the power of your mind for the purpose of healing with Universal Energy—just by asking. Gentle Energy Touch, a form of energy medicine pioneered by Barbara Savin, does just that by using intention to begin the healing process of an individual. In Gentle Energy Touch readers will learn some of Savin’s basic, hands-on techniques for assisting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The beauty of the Gentle Energy Touch approach is that while it can produce results on its own, it also complements all medical treatments and modalities, often shortening treatment and speeding healing. It is particularly effective for pain management and has also been used successfully to treat depression and anxiety, skin problems, heart disease, even cancer, mitigating the nastiest side effects of conventional treatment and generally helping the body marshal its own resources for getting well.

Gentle Energy Touch includes more than 50 photographs and simple explanations of the chakras and auras and how energy moves—and gets stuck—in the body, and then guides readers through an energy healing session including hands-on positions for different ailments and a closing and grounding at the end.

Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow

Karen Casey

Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow tells truth and tells it well. I recommend it.” —Marianne Williamson, bestselling author

“These simple steps can lead to a peaceful and meaningful life. Casey’s self-help book is a winner!” —Frederick Brussat, spiritualityandpractice.com

“This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the quality of his thoughts and how being aware of them can bring positive change. ” —Mary Porter, Science of Mind

9781573246828A finalist for the MS Society Books for a Better Life Award, Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow has sold nearly 70,000 copies in hardcover. The much-anticipated paperback edition comes with a new preface from Casey who continues to be an active participant in helping others heal through recovery.

Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow suggests that we have only two real choices in life. The first is to fall into despair, become numb, and let fear have its way with us. The second is to open our hearts to those around us, to heal ourselves and each other by changing how we respond in every interaction. We cannot change a person. We often cannot change a situation. We can change how we react. We can learn to act out of our own hearts rather than to react in hurt or anger. We can remember we are not in control. When we stop focusing on problems, solutions tend to appear.

Organized around 12 very simple steps, this book gives readers the tools to find within them the positive, peaceful response to every curve ball life throws at them.

A Spirit Walker’s Guide to Shamanic Tools 9781578635573

Evelyn Rysdyk

In this beautifully illustrated guide, artist and shamanic teacher Evelyn C. Rysdyk shows you how to create, decorate, consecrate, and use various sacred tools in ritual and healing.

Navaho traditional healers bring rattles, corn pollen, eagle feathers, and sage smoke together with songs and dances to affect healing. Ulchi shamans use drums, rattles, and larch tree wands called gimsacha to work healing magic. Manchu shamans will perfume the air with incense and tie on a heavy bustle of iron jingles as a part of their ceremonial costume. Modern shamanic practitioners likewise use sacred tools to facilitate our connection to helper spirits in the Upper, Middle and Lower Worlds, as well as the spirits of nature. While you can purchase many of these tools, there’s nothing quite as powerful as making your own. You’ll find instructions for making rattles, drums, masks, mirrors, spirit figures, fans, bells, pouches, wands, prayer bundles, flutes, whistles, and more. Plus suggestions for responsible ways to obtain the materials you’ll need.

The author’s original artwork and photographs of shamans and their authentic tools appear throughout the book.

Head to Heart: Mindfulness Moments for Every Day

Jenifer Madson

Head to Heart gently guides us to cultivate (and sustain) those moments of clarity—the awakenings of everyday life—and to embrace and grow from them all, no matter how joyful or painful.9781573245982

“Awakening…think of it as something we need to do every day; it is a process, a gradual awareness and growing insight,” Madson writes. Practice awakening to:

  • generate more compassion or love,
  • create an unshakable sense of well-being
  • better understand your mind and surroundings,
  • find answers to specific challenges,
  • or all of the above.

Practice can happen anywhere, any time: on the mat or on the move, sitting or walking, in silence or conversation, alone or with a group; in short, whenever you are consciously pointing your mind toward greater clarity and service while connecting with the Spirit, you are meditating and preparing to awaken.

Head to Heart times 365. Each brief meditation opens to the promise of peace, joy, and purpose.

Unconventional Flying Objects: A Former NASA Scientist Explains How UFOs Really Work

Paul R. Hill, Foreword by Robert Wood with Don Crosbie Donderi PhD9781571747136

Paul Hill was a well-respected NASA scientist when, in the early 1950s, he had a UFO sighting. Soon after, he built the first flying platform and was able to duplicate the UFO’s tilt-to-control maneuvers. Official policy, however, prevented him from proclaiming his findings. “I was destined,” says Hill, “to be as unidentified as the flying objects.”

For the next twenty-five years, Hill acted as an unofficial clearinghouse at NASA, collecting and analyzing sightings’ reports for physical properties, propulsion possibilities, dynamics, etc. To refute claims that UFOs defy the laws of physics, he had to make “technological sense… of the unconventional object.”

After his retirement from NASA, Hill finally completed his remarkable analysis. This book, published posthumously, presents his findings that UFOs “obey, not defy, the laws of physics.” Vindicating his own sighting and thousands of others, he proves that UFO technology is not only explainable, but attainable.

The State Is Out of Date: We Can Do It Better 9781938875069

Gregory Sams

Does anyone really think that politics is working–aside from those in power and behind it? What if living together in peace and harmony is a more natural condition than that we experience in today’s conflict-driven culture? We are community animals with built-in empathy, good at organizing things and helping each other out. The most essential and reliable features of our culture arose without top-down planning by a state that has one basic objective–to stay in power. We have enjoyed enduring civilizations in the past governed wholly from the bottom-up, without need of a shepherd and sheepdogs. We can do it again – and are more connected than ever before.

Built upon the experiences of women of all ages–women who have undergone all types of breast surgery and treatments from lumpectomy and mastectomy to radiation and chemotherapy; women who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, gay–the reflections touch upon topics as universal as fear and grief and as intimate as sex.

9781571747112Children of a Living Universe: Discovering Our Legacy Will Change Our Future 

Paul Von Ward

Children of a Living Universe is a call to action unlike any other you may have encountered. According to cultural historian and cosmologist Paul Von Ward, the time has come for human beings to reassess just about everything we believe about our ancestry and global past. Drawing upon forgotten prehistory, clues from the world’s esoteric traditions, and new research in consciousness, Von Ward asserts we are more powerful beings than either science or religion has led us to believe. He exhorts us to embrace a bold, new model of human existence, one that explains our celestial origins, multidimensional capacities, and destiny as conscious co-creators of a self-learning and self-correcting universe.
