Dreams Shamanic Lucid Dreaming by Robert Moss Robert Moss feels that “Through dreaming, we have access to a source that is infinitely wiser and deeper than the everyday ego, and we want to be available to that source. I am in favor of learning to choose where we go and what we do in dreams, as in waking life, but that requires discernment, not the fantasy of control… the easiest way to become a lucid or conscious dreamer is to start out lucid and stay that way: in other words, to enter conscious dreaming from a waking or semi-wakeful state.”

Books The Heart’s Note: A Practical Guide For Sounding Love In Your Life By Stewart Pearce

Pearce’s book, “THE HEART’S NOTE is a passionate declaration. It is a fifty-year search for love throughout the corners of the world. However, it is not an escapade in the throes of romantic love, rather it is a genuine search, looking into the eyes and hearts of millions of people around the Globe, to find the open-ness of heart that we all deeply desire and respect as utterly authentic. This ‘love’ declares the knowledge of an exquisite power, for if we can soul-surf this time of the dawning of Aquarius, if we can soul-stride this era of shifting paradigms by fully honouring the heart, an heroic act will occur.” Published by FINDHORN PRESS 2010

Conscious Eating The Power of Ginger by Dr. Stephen Sinatra Dr. Sinatra feels, “…ginger is a great aide for treating the nausea that accompanies certain types of heart attacks–usually those involving the inferior wall of the left ventricle (the part of the heart that is fed by the right coronary artery). During a heart attack, the weakened heart struggles to maintain blood pressure. Stress hormones spike, and patients experience dread, anxiety, and fear–all of which stirs up severe nausea in about half the cases.”

Wellbeing & Healing Ultherapy: The Use of Ultrasound Technology As An Anti-Aging Cosmetic Procedure by Sara Goldstein As seen on the Dr. Oz Show, “Ultherapy does not use a laser; it uses ultrasound. Ultrasound is a sound vibration that we humans cannot hear because it is higher than our sound range. Think of ultraviolet light, which we cannot see because its wavelength is shorter than the violet end of our visible spectrum. But UV rays can affect the skin dramatically and so can ultrasound… According to where on your face you had the treatment done, you will enjoya tightening and lift of the brow line, more youthful, smooth skin on the cheeks or throat, more awake and alert-looking eyes, more even skin coloring, and more snugly-fitting facial skin…”
