Postcards to the Universe at Books & Books

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. 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.

God and Love on Route 80

The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness

By Stephen G. Post

As a teen at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. At that moment, the boy understood that while we exist in different places and at different times we are all inevitably intertwined, and that coincidences are just God’s way of being anonymous. GOD AND LOVE ON RT. 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post’s journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It’s a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, but by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.

The High Achiever's Guide Book Event

Are you trapped in a gilded cage of your own making? Successful, but not necessarily fulfilled? Stuck, but not sure why or how to get unstuck? Your life looks fantastic on paper. You’re making money, have a career, family, lifestyle, etc. that you thought you always wanted. But now you’re there and it’s not all you expected it to be. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. But where do you begin? You want life to be better, but you don’t know *how* to make it better. The High Achievers Guide: Embrace the Uncomfortable, Do the Deep Work, and Create the Life You Are Here to Live provides the reader with the tools, mindset and process to do the deep emotional work, get clarity, and create the life that is truly aligned to them. A dismal 1 out of 3 people reports feeling happy with their lives. And what does happiness mean anyway? Is it fulfillment? What does fulfillment mean? Is your definition the same as the person next to you? To have something you’ve never had, you have to be willing to do something you’ve never done. You need the tools and process to determine what fulfillment means to you.

Maki Moussavi grew up in midwestern small-town America, a first-generation citizen born to immigrants. Her early life was filled with messages of hard work, chasing the dream, getting the degrees, and making the money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. An avid consumer of self-help, she found that the literature available, while helpful in the pursuit of personal betterment, didn’t quite get her to where she needed to be. She discovered the key to deep and rapid transformation is a willingness to do the uncomfortable self-examination and commit to raising the bar of expectation in pursuit of thriving rather than surviving.

Please join Maki Moussavi, author of The High Achiever's Guide, for a very special afternoon at Our Daily Nada in Kansas City, Missouri. Maki will be sharing her powerful tips to transform your life and find true fulfillment; additionally, she will be reading from her new book, answering questions and signing books.
