The Forgiveness Solution

By

How To Forgive Yourself, Others, and Enjoy the Life You Deserve

The Forgiveness Solution is an interpersonal guide that will teach you to find joy and happiness in the journey of forgiveness. Rediscover who you are and transform into the best version of yourself through this simple yet profound process.

The root of almost all emotional problems is unforgiveness. Unforgiveness includes grievances, judgments, and attack thoughts towards others, ourselves, and our circumstances. The Forgiveness Solution is an easy to learn, practical and integrative process whereby you learn to shift and release your perceptions, attitudes, images, energy, and distressing feelings (anger, guilt, hurt, shame, anxiety, panic, trauma, etc.) and simultaneously re-empower yourself by choosing and deciding to forgive.

New solutions to problems that impact your emotional health. Dr. Friedman introduces you to the new, highly effective healing techniques of Transformational Forgiveness and Energetic Forgiveness. Packed within this book are powerful exercises, tools, and techniques that show you exactly how to forgive rather than just talking about forgiveness.

The Forgiveness Solution shows you how to:

  • Feel an authentic sense of peace and contentment
  • Change your viewpoint of any situation
  • Take control of your emotional response to the events happening around you
  • Connect with your inner wellbeing and grow into the best version of yourself

Writing Down Your Soul

By

#1 Best Seller in New Age & Spirituality, Graphology ─ Write to Explore Your Deep Soul

“I am a writer. Today I write.” Those are the opening lines in the Writing Blessing that author Janet Conner has spoken daily since 2007.

Devine dialogue. Janet Conner is a writer, poet, and spiritual field guide─but first and always a deep soul explorer. Since she discovered how to activate a divine Voice by slipping into the theta brain wave state (the intriguing border between the conscious and the subconscious) while writing, Janet has dedicated herself to exploring and sharing what it means to live at the vibrant intersection of the visible and the invisible. In Writing Down Your Soul, Janet transforms journal-writing from self-reflection in the alpha brainwave state into divine dialogue in theta.

Life-changing power of writing. Of all the ways to get in touch with God, as you understand God, why take the time to write? One reason: it works. It works amazingly well. If you want to engage in a vibrant conversation with the wisdom that dwells just below your conscious awareness, write. Write every day, at approximately the same time, with passion, honesty, and the intention of speaking with and listening to the voice within.

Your healing inner voice. After hitting rock bottom while escaping a terrible situation of domestic abuse, Janet’s inner voice told her to start writing. As she wrote, her inner voice gained clarity and strength, and she felt an incredible connection to the divine. Miracles began to happen. Today, research scientists are providing peeks into what consciousness is and how it works. Their findings give us intriguing clues as to what is actually happening in and through our bodies, minds, and spirits as we roll pen across paper. Writing Down Your Soul explores some of this research and instructs how to access the power and beauty of our own deepest selves.

Tools and steps for detaching from unhealthy relationships. Letting go and setting boundaries can be difficult. But in Codependence and the Power of Detachment, you will find insights and tools that will help you detach from a bad situation, such as:

  • Acknowledging your attachment and codependency
  • Forgiving yourself and others

I Will Not Die an Unlived Life

By

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

In the 1980s, Dr. Dawna Markova was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Here begins her path towards rediscovery.

Feeling lost? I Will Not Die an Unlived Life follows Dr. Markova’s journey to find deeper meaning in life. In her book she guides readers down a path where they can discover their value and purpose. When we feel lost, she points out, we can either continue to live habitual lives and resign our strength—or we can choose to follow our passions.

What is passion? It’s normal to feel stagnant, to be at a loss for energy. Dr. Markova reconceptualises feeling lost as a period of passion's rest. With this, she asks questions that challenge us to slow down and have more conversations with ourselves.

How to find yourself again. Poetic and inspiring, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life is a collection of stories with meaning. Following Dr. Markova's own journey at making her life matter, she offers readers insight into how to:

  • Find personal balance
  • Reclaim passion and purpose in life
  • Focus attention and awareness on the present moment
