The Gifts of Near-Death Experiences

Sheila Fabricant Linn, Dennis Linn & Matthew Linn

“Everything in this book, no matter the subject, is available, usable. I love the “now-ness” of this, the alive-ness. You don’t have to die to experience the truth about yourself, where you’re from or where you’re going once you leave this life behind. Surprise. . .this is not a book about near-death, not really, it is a book about YOU, the real YOU.” —P. M. H. Atwater, L.H.D., researcher of near-death states, author of such books as Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story, Future Memory, Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience, and Children of the Fifth World

The Gifts of Near Death Experiences: You Don’t Have to Die to Experience Your True Home brings a fresh and exciting perspective to understanding near-death experiences. Everyone can benefit from learning the wisdom so clearly and eloquently expressed in this book. With each turn of the page you will find a treasure trove of insights, inspiration, and practical pointers that will really work in your life. This outstanding book is expertly written, remarkably easy to read, and enthusiastically recommended.” —Jeffrey Long, M.D., author of the New York Times bestselling Evidence of the Afterlife: The Science of Near-Death Experiences

The Gifts of Near-Death Experiences will help you develop your own spiritual practice of meditation that can crack open your inner-door so that you too may glimpse beyond into God’s Love and Light and live a life of love.” —Peter Baldwin Panagore, author of Heaven is Beautiful.

9781571747433Near-death experiences (NDEs) are common, well-documented, and similar across cultures throughout the world. Current estimates are that between 4 and 15 percent of the world’s population have had an NDE. Some of the fascination with NDEs comes from the fact that they often result in great leaps in personal growth. These leaps are characterized by the loss of the fear of death, the healing of deep hurts, an increase in self-esteem and compassion for others, a sense of union with all things, and a clearer sense of how to fulfill one’s purpose in life.

This is a book that teaches readers how to reap the benefits of NDEs without having to experience trauma. In the course of their many workshops around the world, the authors have discovered that when one immerses oneself in accounts of NDEs, one can experience love, hope, healing, and a sense of purpose.

This is the only book that systematically encourages the reader to create a spiritual and psychological healing practice based on NDEs. Each chapter includes an account of a fascinating NDE, followed by a series of questions, meditations, exercises, and video links. The reader is encouraged to contemplate these stories and their own lives. It is truly a profound guide to both living and dying.

Bigfoot, Yeti and the Last Neanderthal

by Bryan Sykes

“An intriguing book . . . It is this humanity, this cheerful readiness to travel out into the deepest pine forests of Washington State to interview a twitchy hunter in a Chewbacca T-shirt about something he thought he heard groaning in the woods that makes this book worth reading. If science does ever acknowledge the yeti, it will be thanks to somebody very much like Sykes.” —The Times (London)

9781938875151This is “The Big Book of Yetis.” What the reader gets here is a world-class
geneticist’s search for evidence for the existence of Big Foot, yeti, or the abominable snowman.

Along the way, he visits sites of alleged sightings of these strange creatures, attends meetings of cryptozoologists, recounts the stories of famous monster-hunting expeditions, and runs possible yeti DNA through his highly regarded lab in Oxford. Sykes introduces us to the crackpots, visionaries, and adventurers who have been involved in research into this possible scientific dead-end over the past 100 years. Sykes is a serious scientist who knows how to tell a story, and this is a credible and engaging account.

Almost, but not quite human, the yeti and its counterparts from wild regions of the world, still exert a powerful atavistic influence on us. Is the yeti just a phantasm of our imagination or a survivor from our own savage ancestry? Or is it a real creature? This is the mystery that Bryan Sykes set out to unlock.

Blame Your Planet

Stella Hyde

I also know enough about astrology to recognize that there’s a fair amount of expertise behind this tongue-in-cheek roasting. Laughing at our idiosyncrasies isn’t such a bad thing, especially when 11/12 of the book is wittily ‘dis-ing everybody else. There’s a good time to be had by all those who have even a little bit of a sense of humor.” —Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight (formerly New Age Retailer)

9781578635986Stella Hyde presents a hilarious exposé of the not-so-nice parts of astrological destiny with shocking conclusions supported by complete astrological research for all 12 signs. In Blame Your Planet, she exposes the hidden underside of the stars, and how they affect the dark side of everyone.

Blame Your Planet covers personalities, rising sign, ruling planet, Moon, qualities, and elements. It also details lifestyle choices (jobs, vacations, fashion, interior design, partners) all from a gripping, yet rarely discussed perspective. Blame Your Planet explores:

  • Your favorite deadly sin
  • Your annoying little ways
  • Your lunar nuisance that cramps your style
  • Your Opposite Sign that connects you to those born under it
  • Your favorite holiday to ruin for everybody
  • Your dream darkside job—spy, assassin, dictator, drug baron, jewel thief, evil genius

Fully illustrated, Blame Your Planet reveals the secret evil twin hidden in all of us. Welcome to the dark side.

9781573246859Structured around 22 key questions to ignite the imagination, such as “When I look out, what do I see?” “When I look in, what do I see?” and “If I could create the perfect gate to my extraordinary life, what would it look like?” The Soul Discovery Coloring Book invites readers to:

  • Noodle: use silence, reflection, staring off into space, allowing images to come
  • Doodle: not drawing to replicate, but allowing
  • Color: allowing the colors to choose you
  • Scribble or soul write: scribbling because when we soul write we write fast and messy to get ahead of our conscious mind

For each of the 22 key questions there are 4 pages: the first poses and explores the question and provides an image to color, the second provides an image to color plus space to scribble and doodle, the third offers a quote or small inspiration design for free drawing, and the fourth offers blank space to allow the reader to complete their exploration through writing or coloring.

Adult coloring books are all the rage and The Soul Discovery Coloring Book comes with the added benefit of helping readers to reach deep within themselves to connect with the divine. The result? The reader not only colors a beautiful picture, but also creates a beautiful life.

By learning the ancient Shaman wisdoms from Villoldo, you can heal disease, eliminate emotional suffering, and even grow new bodies that age and heal differently. The stories in this book are amazing and inspiring.
