Postcards to the Universe

By

Have you ever wanted a way to bend the ear of the Universe – that is, the loving energy behind all creation? Yes, that Universe, the one that renders absolute and perfect manifestation. Know that the Universe hears what is in your heart. It hears exactly what you want for your greatest life. In Postcards to the Universe: A Global Movement for Manifestation, artist-photographer Melisa Caprio offers a way to combine art, love and manifestation that will lead you to everything your heart desires. It is a self-help personal development/spirituality book with a strong visual component. Postcards to the Universe is a visual jewel. Lush with imaginative images and poignant with heartfelt words, this beautiful book is already igniting a creative fire in manifesters everywhere. This is creative visualization with the power of intention times three. In Postcards to the Universe readers envision an inspired and fulfilled life. Through photography, art collages and written messages, Postcards to the Universe beckons the Universe to listen to our deepest desires. It is collaboration between Caprio and the beautiful souls who contributed to this project through her popular blog, postcardstotheuniverse.com, weekly internet radio show at 12radio.com and interactive webinars. We all wish. We are already good at wishing before we blow out the candles on our first birthday cake. We are wishing when we pull on a wishbone. We are wishing when we throw coins in a fountain. But then the wish is gone, rarely thought of again, if ever. And we go back to our daily lives – stress, strain and struggle. We nestle back into our comfort zones, which may not really all that comfortable. Too often we don’t stop to even ask the question that leads to our heart’s desire: But if you had the Universe’s ear, where you could harness your own power, reach your full potential and tap into your deepest creativity, what then? Wouldn’t you ask? People have found it works “because you are literally telling the Universe that you are serious this time,” Caprio says. “You’re ready, really ready, to begin the process of receiving your deepest desires” Postcards to the Universe is your conduit to success. Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation is not just a beautiful fine art book but an ongoing project and movement. Postcards to the Universe empowers people to get clear and creative about living an inspired life. Though art and photography, we get to see peoples' desires manifest. Caprio photographs each postcard as she receives it. She intuits by each person’s specific manifestation how she is going to photograph their postcard. Caprio is inspired by helping people get creative and collaborate with her to push this movement forward. She asks the Universe to send her postcards. Each postcard is transformed into its own powerful intention. Already this project has taken law of attraction to a whole new level. Now, the book promises to take it even higher. It is visual. It is tactile. It brims with heartfelt desire. It’s in deep conversation with the Universe. The wishes inside are infused with the energy and spirit of the contributors of this book. The book itself vibrates at a higher level.

A Bright Clean Mind

By

Tenderheart will be a breezy yet substantial read that lends itself to “dipping back in,” a paperback original with a 5.5” x 8.5” trim size for portability (and gift-ability!) The readership is much the same as well: creative people who want to evolve out of the anxiety and frustration that have characterized so much of their artistic process up to now. Tenderheart will be primarily for “veg-curious” creatives—artists and entrepreneurs who have heard a plant-based diet is better for their health, but haven’t yet made the connections between diet, empathy for non-human animals, and creative output—though it will also appeal to readers who are already moving toward a more compassionate lifestyle, as well as vegans seeking creative inspiration. Now that the older members of Generation Z (no doubt the most politically-engaged generation since the 1960s) are purchasing their own food, plant protein and non-dairy products will eventually dominate the market—and these young vegans (and “vegan-ish”) will reach for books on creativity and culture that reflect their values. As veganism goes truly mainstream, artists and entrepreneurs of older generations who routinely experience anxiety, frustration, and other corrosive emotions will be ever more receptive to Tenderheart’s message, too.

Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety

By

A Guidebook for Parents Navigating the New Teen Years

Learn about the “New Teen” and what it means for parenting tactics: Kids are growing up with nearly unlimited access to social media and the world wide web. Starting as early as eight years old, children are exposed to information, thought, and emotion that they are developmentally unprepared to process. As a result, saving the typical “teen parenting” tactics for thirteen-year-olds is now years too late.

Urgent advice for parents of teens: Dr. John Duffy’s parenting book is a new and necessary guide because it addresses this hidden phenomenon of the changing teenage brain. Dr. Duffy, a nationally recognized expert in parenting for nearly twenty-five years, seeks to be a guide for parents raising children who are growing up quickly and, as a result, dealing with unresolved adolescent issues that can lead to anxiety and depression.

Understand the unprecedented psychological suffering in our young people and why it is occurring: A shift has taken place in how and when children develop. Because of the exposure they face, kids are emotionally overwhelmed at a young age, and therefore, are often continuing to search for a sense of self well into their twenties. However, Dr. Duffy also expresses the good that comes with these challenges, such as the sense of justice instilled in teenagers starting at a young age.

Readers of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety will:

  • Sort through the overwhelming circumstances of today’s teens and better understand the changing landscape of adolescence
  • Come away with a revised, conscious parenting plan more suited to addressing the current needs of the New Teen
  • Discover the joy in parenting again by reclaiming the role of your teen’s ally, guide, and consultant

If you enjoyed parenting books such as The Yes BrainHow to Raise an AdultThe Deepest Well, and The Conscious Parent, then Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety should be next on your list!

The Beauty of Conflict for Couples

By

Transform the Way Conflict Affects Your Love Life

Want to bring more peace into your relationship―and also get back that “spark” that’s been missing?

From bad breath to infidelity, find resolution for issues that cause division. If left unresolved, sources of disconnect can lead to major rifts in a relationship. Authors CrisMarie Campbell and Susan Clarke bring over twenty years of experience in family and marriage counseling and relationship coaching to this book. They cater their advice to romantic relationships and provide resolution strategies for women and men.

Bring back the “spark” that’s been missing. Passion is essential to relationships, and equally important across the spectrums of love, sex, and dating. Whether it’s our first love or last love, in order for our bond with our partner to thrive, there needs to be a sense of excitement present. By transforming the way conflict affects us, we create a space for the intimate relationship or passionate marriage we long for to take root and grow.

Conflict doesn’t have to be a deal breaker. While arguments with our partner can get tiring, looking at those disagreements as opportunities to strengthen our bond rather than weaken it can have a significant impact on their effect. With conflict comes the chance to communicate and solve problems together. This can restore a sense of intimacy and connection with our partner, both emotionally and physically.

In The Beauty of Conflict for Couples, you will find:

  • Relatable stories that shed light on the common struggles of romantic relationships
  • Practical tools that offer guidance for addressing conflict
  • A source of hope for relationships that appear to be fated for failure

If you and your significant other have looked for guidance in books such as Mating in Captivity, The 5 Love Languages, Hold Me Tight, or Campbell and Clarke’s first book, The Beauty of Conflict, then you’ll find a further source of resolution in The Beauty of Conflict for Couples.
