The Pathwork of Self-Transformation – Eva Pierrakos
Fear No Evil – Eva Pierrakos
These two books are comprised
of selected lectures from “The Guide”. The Pathwork lectures are
teachings focused on our self-awareness, healing and spiritual growth.
They offer insightful guidance about why we are here, how we find
ourselves in the pain of repetitive, unfulfilling experiences, and how
we can approach healing. Fear No Evil lectures focus on the recognition
and transformation of those aspects of our consciousness that are
defended, meaning relating from pride, self-will or fear, and therefore
unable to open to the infinite pleasure of life.
I find that when engaging
with these materials, I resonate with a higher frequency of energy, my
vibration is lifted, and I can see and understand a larger perspective.
Awakening in Time – Jacquelyn Small
This books continues to span
decades with its wisdom of human consciousness and its evolution.
Written in a friendly and comprehensive manner, Jackie Small takes you
through awakening with awareness: how we create, how we relate with
others, our chakra systems and disease processes. She outlines how
relationships can evolve from dependency to co-creation, from defense to
relationships of “high calling” and purposeful living.
Hands of Light – Barbara Brennan
Light Emerging – Barbara Brennan
Hands of Light, Barbara
Brennan’s first book on Human Energy Consciousness, is focused on
Self-Healing and Knowing the Self. Her second book, Light Emerging, is
focused on relational energetics and healing, as well as understanding
ourselves as multi-dimensional beings. Dr. Brennan is a pioneer in the
field of Energy Consciousness and Healing. This book is available in a
few languages, as Barbara is well known internationally in the field of
Healing Science. She has been able to objectify energy and how to work
with it, as well as been able to teach others to do the same. Just
Molecules of Emotion – Candace B. Pert
The Science Behind Mind-Body Medicine
Here’s a book for the
scientific mind, although written for the layman. Candace Pert’s work
was the focus of the recent documentary, “What the Bleep” (see Movies).
Her work was also a major part of my Senior Thesis at BBSH, “A
Multi-Dimensional Approach to Healing Attention Deficit Disorder.” Read
this book to learn more about how our thoughts and emotions affect our
physiology. I particularly like learning about the ‘opiate receptor’,
which is her discovery.
Loving What Is – Byron Katie
Inquiry…what a beautiful way
to relate to life! Byron Katie offers a simple and effective method of
discovering how we can be the source of our own suffering, as well to
discovering the beliefs and thinking patterns that can destroy
happiness. This book is gentle and humorous, but can feel as though it
speaks to our greatest pain.
Trust After Trauma – Aphrodite Matsakis
Here is a book that addresses the long term affects of trauma, or
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This book can benefit those who
suffer the pain of reoccurring trauma and those who love them. It offers
understanding and practical approaches that invite compassion and foster
healing for everyone.
Heal Your Body – Louise L. Hay
I like this book because Louise clearly outlines the potential
psychological and emotional causes for physical imbalances, diseases and
injuries. She directs us to a place of the possibilities for our
suffering from a mind-body-spirit perspective, which can stimulate our
curiosity and desire to explore our own nature.
Healing ADD – Dr. Daniel G. Amen
Attention Deficit Disorder is a complex and pervasive condition that
touches all peoples on our planet. Dr. Amen identifies and explains six
variations of ADD and how those with ADD, their families, teachers and
associates, can learn to live optimally and heal. This book was also a
significant part of my Senior Thesis at BBSH, “A Multi-Dimensional
Approach to Healing Attention Deficit Disorder.”
The Energy of Money - Maria Nemeth
Love, An Inner Connection – Carol K. Anthony
Carol Anthony has written a
concise and rich text, based on the principles of the I-Ching. Her focus
is on the purpose and gift of the Love relationship. This is a book to
be savored. The language is clear, yet not easily comprehended. The
concepts require us to consider other possibilities about what
relationship with a primary partner is all about. She teaches
fundamental principles of relating as well as guides us through the
journey of truly loving another from that first spark of attraction! I
challenge you to commit to following her counsel for 3 months, without
resistance, and see how your life changes!
Creating Union – Eva Pierrakos
Another “not to be missed”
group of Pathwork lectures, this book is focused on the dynamics of a
whole, authentic and balanced relationship. The Guide addresses union on
all levels, and brings a new perspective to emotional, mental, sexual
and spiritual intimacy.
How to be An Adult – David Richo
Do not miss this book. David
Richo has succinctly and uniquely united concepts about living and
relating that can provide the wisdom and (actions you can take) to live
in harmony with yourself, others and the world. I believe it will evoke
your logic, reason and understanding, as well as you heart.
The Love Pack – Chuck Spezzano
This man can write! Chuck Spezzano, who has a background in the
Course in Miracles, has created a tool to help us find our way to
fulfillment in Love. This tool is a deck of cards and a reference book.
Through engaging with the cards as he outlines, his writings will help
you to identify the problems and the healing solutions in relationship.
Check to see if these teachings bring you to the core of your own truth
and innate knowing about how we create love and absolute pleasure!
The Unimaginable Life – Kenny & Julia Loggins
Singer/Songwriter Kenny Loggins, and his now wife Julia, share the
challenges and ecstasy of conscious relationship through a diary of
their own personal process. This book is really helpful if you’re
feeling alone in strange, new territory, or you don't understand why you
keep coming to the same juncture over and over again.
The Energy of Money - Maria Nemeth
This book is actually a
written workshop, which you complete at your own pace. It might take one
to two years! Dr. Nemeth will guide you through all aspects of your
life; and bring awareness to how you can realize your dreams, visions
and goals. She uses our relationship with money as the context for
awakening to our true nature and life’s fulfillment. These concepts open
the doorway to synchronicity, and the support of the universe. This is a
great book to read with your best friend, spouse, partner or a group!
First, Break All The Rules - Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman
How do you evoke the creative
and true nature of others? This is a book that supports those who are in
the workplace…as a manager, peer, or employee. It offers a significant
model for facilitating the realization of the greatest potential of
those whose lives we touch. It will invite you to “break all the rules”
you’ve learned about managing human resources.
The Evolution of The Soul Through Service - Susan S. Trout
At times, we may question if
we are doing the work we are intended to do, if we are living to our
greatest potential. Dr. Trout brings new meaning and insight to our work
in the world. As we become aware of our motivations for serving others,
we come to know and realize our soul’s true nature.
Crucial Conversations - Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, Al Switzler
This is not only a book, it’s
a training program! If we’re stuck in our relationships in the
workplace, or at home, we may be having the wrong conversations or
avoiding necessary conversations. These authors/trainers help us to
identify what is really being received in our communications, and how we
can more effectively and consistently communicate in ways that express
what we really want. Visit their website for more on this curriculum:
What Color is Your Parachute – Richard Nelson Bolles
In addition to being an excellent
spiritual guide to finding one’s place of work in the world, the final
chapter on “How to Find Your Mission in Life: God and One’s Vocation” is
