The Secret of Enduring Love: Yoga Romance of Damanyanti and Nala by Peter Sklivas is a modern retelling of and ancient love story from India. I loved how the story interweaves the plot with wisdom.
The main character Damanyanti is told she must pass through seven gateways (you probably know them as chakras) in order to find enduring love. This book is a wonderful way to show us the power of the divine feminine and ways to embrace it in ourselves. This book is not just about finding enduring love with others it is about finding enduring love within us. This book shows us that yoga is more than just movements on a yoga mat it is a deeply spiritual practice.
I could not put this book down and recommend it to those who wish to find enduring love and the yogi and non-yogi alike. This book will help you on your path to enduring love. Om Shakti Om … Om Shiva Om.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain shows the wonderful qualities of introverts and how they make an impact in our world. I think that this is a wonderful book for introverts and extroverts alike. This book made me think, “Finally someone gets it.”
Quiet is broken up into four parts. Part one entitled, “The Extrovert Ideal” shows us how the extrovert ideal came about in America and how it impacts us now. Part two, “Your Biology, Your Self?” tells us about the temperament of introverts and how introverts and extroverts think differently. Part three, “Do All Cultures Have an Extrovert Ideal?” shows us how Asian-America views introversion and extraversion. Part four, “How to Love, How to Work” shows us how to act more extroverted when needed, how to cultivate and empower quiet children for parents and teachers and how to talk to members of the opposite quality.
I enjoyed the chapter on how introverts and extroverts think differently. I also enjoyed the section on how to be more extroverted when needed. The stories of successful introverts were inspiring to me. I enjoyed learning how many successful introverts there are.

Fun, entertaining, and inspiring are just some of the words I can think of to describe Percolate: Let Your Best Self Filter Through by Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino which also includes “Coffee Breaks” with Dr. Katie Eastman.
This new book takes us through nine steps to help us become our best self. The nine points have names such as, “Create Your Own Best Blend” and “Percolate Peace”. One of my favorite chapters is entitled, “What Would Betty White Do?”. Just like the author I too love Betty White and enjoyed that the author asked herself this question and found that the answer was laugh and not take life so seriously.
This book is filled with questions to ask ourselves in order to become our best self and in addition there are coffee breaks at the end of each section to help us integrate the ideas into our lives. Through the metaphor of a cup of coffee we are shown ways to create our best self and find peace. I also enjoyed the parte entitled, “Percolate Peace” to help us find inner peace.
This book will inspire you, make you laugh, and most important show you how to let your light shine through. I would recommend this book if you want an inspiring way to be the best you that you can be.

Soul Choices: Six Paths to Find Your Life Purpose by Kathryn Andries (Published 2013) is a beautiful book that introduces us to six methods to help us discover our life purpose. The six methods we are introduced to are: Past Lives, Astrology, Numerology, Rayid Iris, Palmistry, and finally Family and Birth order.
We are then shown how these six methods can be combined together to help us find our life purpose. I had never heard of the Rayid Iris method and found it to be very interesting and look forward to learning more about it. Rayid Iris is basically looking at our eyes to find out more about ourselves. I like the exercises at the end of each chapter which showed us how each method represents us. I also enjoyed the exercises that integrated all the aspects together in order to help us find our life purpose.
I really enjoyed this book and think it is a good introduction to the six methods mentioned above. I also thought the cover of the book was very beautiful and fitting for this book. I would recommend this book to those who want a very brief introduction to the methods and also those who want to learn how to bring all of the methods together to find their purpose.

Soul Contracts: Find Harmony and Unlock Your Brilliance by Danielle MacKinnon is a wonderful new book on how to find and release our soul contracts and realign with our Divine Self by realizing we are always light.
We are shown the steps to take to find our root belief system and seed thoughts which have attached themselves to us at a soul level. We are shown the five steps to returning to a healthy soul system. In step one, “Build Your Foundation” we are shown how to make our energy clear in order to make decisions by using ’100 percent Divine Light’. In step two, ‘Awareness’ we learn to identify what needs to be released from our soul system. Step three shows us how to make different choices which will truly lead to mastery at the soul level. Step four, ‘Mastery’ shows us small things that lead to success. The final step, ‘Release’ shows us how to completely release our soul contracts and seed thoughts. It also shows us how to stop from forming new soul contracts.
I found this book to be a wonderful help to finding the Divine Light within. I enjoyed learning what soul contracts are and how to clear them. This process is not a quick fix and will bring up many emotions you may not want to deal with. However, if you do this process you will be all the better for it. I would recommend this book to those wishing to return to a healthy soul system and Divine Light.

The Remembering Process: A Surprising (and Fun) Breakthrough New Way to Amazing Creativity by Daniel Barrett and Joe Vitale is an absolutely mind-blowing book. I enjoyed this book so much that I read it in one sitting. I could not put this book down.
This book introduces us to a process in which we remember what has happened to us in the future. By using this process we can become more confident, find healthy relationships, and attract wealth. According to the authors instead of the ‘Law of Attraction’ we are using the ‘Law of allowing’. We are allowing ourselves to remember what happened in the future thus bypassing our ego trying to tell us we can’t do something because we are telling our ego that it already happened. I really enjoyed learning this very simple process and am excited to start using it in my life. The entire process is composed of six components that are easy and fun to use.
I enjoyed this book immensely and like how the authors showed examples of how they used it to write this book. Overall this book is mind-bending and will expand our view of time and space. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun way to get success in any area of their lives.

Walking on the Wind: Cherokee Teachings for Harmony and Balance by Michael T. Garrett is a wonderful book that is full of wisdom. I really enjoyed this book and it resonated very deeply with me. In this book we are shown how to be a helper in the traditional way by never taking more than we need, giving thanks for what we have and what we receive, using all of what we have, and giving away what we do not need. We are introduced to the sacredness of the four directions and what they represent.
This book gives us a lot of traditional wisdom to help us live in harmony with all things. We are shown the Rule of opposites and how it emphasizes the role of choice in our lives. We are shown how to stay in harmony with the circle and the four directions among other things. I especially enjoyed the exercises found within which help us create peace for ourselves and harmony in our lives.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants more harmony and balance in their lives. There is a lot of wisdom in this book. I especially enjoyed the prayer at the end in Tsalagi and also the prayer to the Four Directions in Tsalagi.
