    Light Atonement by Ariyana, a star child - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jul 1, 2015

    Perhaps we are being prepared our entire lives to do an be whatever it is we are being called upon to be doing and being while here in this earth in this particular incarnation. This is exactly what was running through my head as I finished reading Light Atonement by Ariyana, a star child ©2015, Prospecta Press. Perhaps there are people we will meet, places we are drawn to make our homes as well as jobs we choose simply because the journey we came here to experience requires this. Yet at the time this is not completely apparent. Ariyana’s experiences in what will be her first book (of this I am certain) weave this thought into reality and does it so well that you will find yourself pondering your own life at the end of each chapter.  What is so cool about the thought provoking chapters is that at the end of each, Ariyana provides us with space to post our “reflections” encouraging us with questions as guides. The book chronicles ...

    Autobiography of a Prophet - Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Apr 1, 2017

    Autobiography of a Prophet provides a unique perspective on past lives, spiritual evolution, humanity's origins and destiny, the other occupants of our multi-layered solar system, and much, much more. Nada-Yolanda, born Pauline Sharpe (1925-2005), was involved in many creative endeavors during World War II and in the early days of television. From writing, to acting, then onward to directing and producing, she was an active force in all aspects of the entertainment industry. She also studied psychoanalysis under Dr. Karen Horney in the 1940s and founded Florida's first Temporary Office Service in the 1950s. The dawn of the twentieth century's second half also triggered her spiritual awakening. She connected with Master Sananda, known to us as Jesus Christ, shortly thereafter. Initially they communicated chiefly through dreams and automatic writing. In 1959 she met El Morya/Mark, born Charles Boyd Gentzel, and together they launched Mark-Age, an organization whose ongoing mission is preparing humanity for the Latter-Days, a time of trials and tribulations preceding the reinstatement of a sovereign Christ Consciousness on our troubled world.

    David Wood‘s Crown and Conjure, Oil and Pump Spray - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Dec 1, 2015

    When I purchased some crown and conjure oils, I found them to be very pleasant and heavily scented, without that under laying scent you get with some oil blends. The oil you can tell has quality, it is thick and smooth to the touch. For those who used blended oils back in the early 80’s, these oils will remind you of them, before the oils when into mass production, as your oil is not blended until you order them. You can tell that they are freshly made and have not been setting on a shelf for God knows how long. Now I am very impressed when it comes to packaging. When I got the oil I ordered, it came packaged, in not one padded envelope but two, and each bottle was individually wrapped. The oil comes in glass bottles, not cheap plastic. Plus even through all the packaging, you could smell the scent of the oil. While I understand that for many,  the idea of the word conjuring could throw you off but ...

    Jaspar's War by Cym Lowell - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    There is a famous quote that says that women are much like tea bags because you don’t know how strong they are until they are in hot water.  I imagine this is what the heroine of the debut novel by Cym Lowell discovered as she endured Jaspar’s War. While there are as many sub plots in this thriller it begins with one strong scenario: a pampered socialite, married to the United States Secretary of the Treasury, has her life turned upside down when she finds out her husband’s government jet has crashed, her children have vanished and that she has been tagged as the key player in the whole drama. As the sub plots unfold, Jaspar’s journey to rescue her children takes so many seemingly strange twists and turns that putting this whole thing together appears as intricately connected as a three tier, 3D jigsaw puzzle. Not that this is a bad thing, it’s actually part of the charm of a story that is anything other than charming. Jaspar Moran finds herself ...

    L´Archéomètre - a review by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Aug 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. . . The subtitle says it all: Key to All the Religions and All Sciences of Antiquity; Synthetic Reformation of All Contemporary Arts. This is ambitious like nothing else but also almost impossible to achieve. It is regarded a classic in certain esoteric circles and spiritual groups, so let us take a closer look. Based on basic esoteric principles and a series of revelations, Saint-Yves d’Alveydre wrote his unique book Le Archeometre, or rather intended to write it. The book was actually written and completed by his close circle of friends or followers as well as his close family. What he refers to as his angel is the soul of his wife after she died. He was a spiritualist in the sense of communicating with the dead and continued to “talk” with her. Papus or Gérard Encausse's involvement in the book makes me critical, he seems not able to question or take a critical approach to things and Papus' own book on the Kabbalah, is a ...

    Living Hope Steps to leaving Suffering Behind by Lynne Cockrum- Murphy ED.D - Review - by Aeson Knight

    The Way of Hermes: A Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Sep 1, 2017

    I just finished re-reading The Way of Hermes, a new translation of The Corpus Hermeticum and The Definitions of Hermes Trismegistus to Asclepius published by Inner Traditions. Perhaps that's not an accurate way of describing my journey between the covers. For one does not just read tah Hermetika, one puzzles over and meditates on these writings, slowly extracting meanings, or one is occasionally rewarded with flashes of insight by the Thrice Great Hermes himself.Hermes is an Olympian Archangel and a Psychopomp. In the Abrahamic traditions he is known as Enoch, Idris and Metatron. One seeks and finds the Hermetic literature (or it seeks and finds them), incarnation after incarnation, until illumination is reached. And one recognizes it when it crosses one's path. Then one starts remembering... Hermetecism, which flowered during the Hellenistic and Roman eras, is the foundation upon which the Western magical tradition rests. These works were accepted by and integrated into the religions of the Book. And they kept the light of the Ancients alive during the Dark Ages. ...

    Healing with Whole Foods - By Annette

    Greetings!  I am here to share with you my enthusiasm for a book that was gifted me as a birthday present only recently and I am wondering why it took so long for the two of us to come together. Healing with Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford is in its third edition with over half a million copies sold worldwide. It was first published in 1993 and most recently the copyright renewed in 2002. Here is the publishing information so take note as it is my hope that you will be chomping at the bit to order your copy by the time I have finished what I have to say about this book.  You will find it in the Health /Nutrition section of your book seller and the ISBN number is 978-1-55643-430-3 and it retails for $35 US and $43.95 Canadian.  Oh yes, the publisher is North Atlantic Books, Berkley, California www.northatlanticbooks.com This book (753 pages) blends authentic Asian medicine traditions with current Western research of health and nutrition, and as ...

    An Eye on the Mythic Gaming Business: An Interview of Magnus Nygaard - by Hercules Invictus

    Hercules: Greetings Magnus! I am greatly honored to be interviewing the creator and author of the Dogs of Hades RPG. Thank you for granting us this interview. Magnus: My pleasure. Hercules: What were the games you grew up playing? And which ones were your favorites? Magnus: Well my first game was D&D the Red Box, followed by AD&D 2ndEdition and Drager og Dæmoner - a Swedish Sword & Sorcery game based on the RuneQuest rules. But then I moved to France and found out that there were worlds beyond the standard high fantasy genre. I brought In Nomine Satanis/Magna Veritas and Bloodlust home to Denmark – two of the greatest French games ever made. I’ve regularly played both games, and Bloodlust is my personal favorite Sword & Sorcery world. As for systems – I’ve been mostly a fan of GURPS until I found Savage Worlds. Hercules: How did you discover Role Playing Games? Magnus: One of my friends called me – he had just gotten the Red Box and needed a Dungeon Master. ...

    Olympian Space Opera, Sci-Fi and Superheroics - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Feb 1, 2017

    No effort was wasted, no time proved ill-spent. Would that this were so for all my endeavors! My Quest to re-make my Mythic Adventure multiverse into a greater vehicle for interactive storytelling is proceeding smoothly. Every Role Playing Game (RPG) product I've explored thus far has provided me with something of potential value. I found that even the games I had decided to use exclusively in the ancient Heroic Age actually offered me convenient links to the starry void and parallel dimensions. Precis Intermedia's Lords of Olympus facilitates integrating all types of settings, even alien ones, into a coherent whole, thus it remains a valuable resource. Deep7 and Heyoka Studios provide means to transplant Greco-Roman heroes into outer space through 1PG Star Legion and grant them godlike powers in 1PG Hero Force. Chimera Press' Mythic offers a great planet or plane to visit and the Eccentric Encounters series by Necromancers of the West Coast has enough mutated mythic monsters to keep things very lively for my adventuring heroes.

    The Practice, Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace and Uncovering Happiness by Barb Schmidt - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

    There are more than a lot of books on the market these days that try to teach us how to make our lives better.  What I believe sets The Practice, Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace and Uncovering Happiness by Barb Schmidt apart from other books in the spirituality category, is the sincerity of Schmidt. One gets an immediate sense of genuine authority from the start yet it is not about authority over the reader or even life, it’s about authority over herself.  See, this book gives us the steps Schmidt took to bring herself into balance which in turn has allowed her to live a more peace-filled life. The tools Schmidt refers to include meditation and mantra which when coupled with the step-by-step instructions, create an outline that pretty much anyone willing to do the work can use to achieve positive results. Naturally the impetus for Schmidt’s transformation will not resonate with some but because she illustrates her success with her true-life examples, we find ourselves considering that ...

    Flying Colors by Sarah Moore - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Aug 1, 2015

     WWII may look like the alphabet to some but to those of us who had parents or grandparents who served their country in the armed forces during the 1940’s, we recognize those 4 characters as standing for World War Two. As this was such a very long time ago, there are not many around who can provide a first-hand account of the experience and as luck would have it, we have the honor and privilege to meet one such individual in the book Flying Colors by Sarah Moore.  Victor “Vic” Tatelman is now 94 years old but at one time he was a soldier in the United States Army Air Corps. By way of his personal narrative, we step back into of one of the most historic times of the 20th century.  Sarah Moore’s labor of love has given birth to Flying Colors which immortalizes this mortal man in fine style. The tale is not always pretty, we read of the horrors of war and can only imagine what it must ...

    Let's Compare Cosmologies: A Review of 1000 Keys to the Truth - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Nov 1, 2017

    Nada-Yolanda and El Morya (aka Mark Age) began their public mission in 1960 by establishing the Mark-Age organization and systematically actualizing plans laid milleniums ago by the Hierarchal Board of our Solar System to help this planet's denizens awaken to their divine heritage and ascend to fourth dimensional consciousness. The Mark-Age material, a vast collection of channeled messages lovingly recorded and patiently transcribed over the past sixty plus years, is a resource of incalculable worth to any and all whose life-work is dedicated to the spiritual growth and evolution of humanity. Daunting as the task of approaching and immersing oneself in all this data may seem, the Mark-Age School of Education, through its publications, does an excellent job of explaining their impressively comprehensive metaphysical system. 1000 Keys to the Truth is a slim volume comprised of one thousand numbered paragraphs divided into forty chapters. Each chapter focuses on a different topic, ranging from the nature of deity to the defining of obscure esoteric terms. All of the information was selected from Nada-Yolanda's voluminous ...

    Choose – The Book - by Kat McCarthy

    Posted by Kathleen McCarthy on Feb 1, 2015

    True to her form, my friend, award winning, bestselling author Annette Rochelle Aben has created another clever little powerhouse of a book. Choose, The Two Step Plan is an excellent book of positive reinforcement that is in large print so it is easy to read. It is also very clear in its objective of offering a more powerful and successful way of looking and experiencing live. Its ease of understanding is so complete, even children understand the book and what it is offering. Choose would be an outstanding choice for someone who is relearning how to think for general success in life. Each part begins with powerful choices followed by strong but simple and effective action steps. I would absolutely recommend this as a gift to someone who is in the midst of crucial life changes or who are new to this life philosophy.

    Review of the Missing Element - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Jan 1, 2017

    The Missing Element, by Debra Silverman M.A., bridges psychology and astrology, bringing the energy of the stars to the mental plane.  What I found so interesting with this book, is you do not need to know one degree of astrology. So, put down the calculator and pencil and open yourself to the wisdom of the ancients in your life. Have you ever noticed that some Aries people are just full steam ahead and matching off to take on the next mountain or how Cancer folks find it hard to get comfortable with you? “Psychology and spirituality are best friends,” says Debra. “Psychology without the cosmic or spiritual angle really doesn’t have the potency that allows people to understand from the biggest picture why they do what they do. Psychology is all about the ego and astrology is all about the soul. I marry the two.” In her new book, “The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition,” Debra takes this assertion a step further to bring our attention to the backbone of astrology—the four ...

    I love self exploration. Edgar Cayce’s direction to “Know thyself” carries the call to explore your very own inner frontier. I love the idea of channeled spiritual artwork that can move you in a very personal way, and bring you awareness and confirmation.   I'd like to introduce you to one such artist, Sharon Bosmoore. She is an international Spirit Artist and Art Shaman, offering her gifts as a spiritual guide and mentor for sensitive souls, creatives and healers.  I met Sharon through an online event and I was really drawn to her work.   Sharon's art taps into higher frequencies of universal energy and the spirit world to activate healing and awakening.  Her art helps you align with your deeper wisdom, your creative genius, your sacred path, and helps you find the 'soul esteem' to live with purpose, meaning and self trust.   She lives in Australia and we had our session over Skype. Sharon is very down to earth, and I enjoyed spending our time together, not to mention how fascinating it was to watch my spirit drawing unfold in ...

    SOUL original poetry by GiGi Jones The Writer - by Annette

    When a person puts their soul into food we can taste it.  When a person puts their soul into a song, it moves us.  When a person puts their soul into a work of art, we see it.  So is it any wonder that the first book published by GiGi Jones “The Writer” is as tasty a visual treat (breath taking photographs) as it is a moving experience, after all she titled it SOUL. The original poetry on the pages of this beautifully crafted book is meant to be savored, not rushed through by any means. Each offering presents the story of an experience the author has lived through, come through and grown through to become the woman of strength she is today. While you may not find yourself on every page, you will find the ones that touch you deeply and perhaps once touched you will realize that emotions are something that unites people from all walks of life, all socio-economic backgrounds, races, genders and faiths.  Emotions hold tremendous power over ...

    This month I want to introduce you to Kim Muzzi in Guelph Ontario.  Kim has an online store selling a variety of Orgones and offering numerous services which can be provided online as well as in person. I asked Kim to explain what Family Constellations is and here is her awesome response: "Family Constellations allow us to break patterns of suffering so that we can live healthier, happier, and more fulfilled lives. Bert Hellinger is the founder of this work. He studied and treated families for more than 50 years and he observed that many of us unconsciously “take on” destructive familial patterns of anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, aloneness, alcoholism and even illness as a way of “belonging” in our families. He witnessed how the bond of love can cause a child to sacrifice her own best interest in an attempt to ease the suffering of a parent or other family member. Family Constellations is a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations and, as ...

    Sharing The Local Community - by Sheri Sennhauser

    Lately I have noticed there isn't a lot of sharing or promoting of smaller businesses.  The cute little shops we love to go in or visit webpages exist only as long as they are utilized.  It's important we support the folks who work so hard to bring us their one of a kind products and services.  We should support one another in our endeavours as a global community and keep the uniqueness of a handmade gift or service geared to our well being. Each month I am going to review a small business that offers shipping and/or services that can be done over the web.  This year lets make the little guy/gal our priority and lift one another up instead of competing.  No two products or services are exactly alike, each person add their own magic and spark even if they may look similar.  It is hard enough to compete with big names without the pettiness spilling over to our greatest gifts of talented people who provide and/or make beautiful things with ...

    Champions of Olympus: Engage the Hero Within - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Jul 1, 2017

    I am greatly honored to have met, and spent some quality time with, both the author, Ivan Szendro, and his Inspiration, Gabri'El Alice Stollman, of Alice in the Upperland, a colorful, creative and truly mythic book. Ivan is a Shaman and Gabri'El is an Artist. They share a deep connection with Hungary and the timeless heroic tradition that is the heritage of all of humanity. You can read the book in two ways, from the bottom up (which gives you a sense of uplifting ascent) or, later on, from the top down (which is the way we've been conditioned to read things). I recommend both approaches, if only to discover that there is indeed a difference. For me there was a noticeable shift in consciousness while reading it upside-down similar to a mild meditative state.   On one level, Alice in the Upperland is the personal tale of a girl growing up in Queens during the post-war era. She is an American of Hungarian and Jewish descent. Her father, whom she idolizes, is ...

Yet if that doesn’t make you crack a smile, the book by the same name may just do the trick!  Fran Shaw Ph.D. gives the irreverently blunt outlook of Murphy, voice in this tour-de-force.  Truth be known, much of what Murphy shares is merely what is inside the heads of many who are Waking Up in the Spiritual Marketplace. As we find out, when we hop on this freight train of entertainment; “attention is the teacher.” Murphy serves up food for spiritual thought not because we don’t know it, moreover so we can find others out there who are experiencing the same type of “mass instruction” over load.  Everywhere we tturn, there is someone espousing this formula or that edict. We may find ourselves trying too hard to make it all fit into our lives.  This can be more stress-filled than that which we strive to eliminate from our day-to-day. Stress + stress doesn’t not = enlightenment.  Murphy brings this to our ...

    Perspective - The Book - by Kat McCarthy

    Posted by Kathleen McCarthy on Feb 1, 2015

    My Review of the Book: Perspective - It’s all about replacing one thought with another. Recently I had the opportunity to read this little gem by award winning bestselling author Annette Rochelle Aben. Annette is a friend of mine and an editor here at The Magic Happens so I know her fairly well and I believe I can safely say that her intention for her book was to spread joy and show how easy it is to replace one thought with another. I love many things about this book. It has beautiful coloured photographs, and it is very easy to read. In fact it is so easy to read, it is a book I would feel very comfortable recommending to someone who doesn’t like to read. Even the slowest reader can get through Annette’s book in a day. This is a clever little book full of angels and poetry and it definitely encourages the reader to choose their thoughts more carefully. For example: "I told the angels, I’d let go It was all right… I didn’t need ...

    Posted by Andreas Bjørndal on Apr 1, 2017

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. Some books make deep impressions. This one is a surrealistic impression of wisdom combined with everything goes that has stayed with me and many others for decades. . The back cover gives an example of the wisdom which is spread like pearls throughout the pages of this little gem; Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished; If you're alive, it isn´t. "Illusions - Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah" is about a master Donald Shimoda a former mechanic that is able to do whatever you can imagine, like making wrenches levitate from distance into his hand.

    A Review of 'The Oracles of Apollo' - by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Aug 1, 2017

    I greatly enjoy experimenting with divination systems, especially those with an Olympian theme. Oracles played a vital role in Ancient Greek society and their influence and power reverberate throughout Greco-Roman mythology. Several Oracles, especially those of Apollo at Delphi and that of Zeus Ammon in Libya, played important roles in the adventures of the Theban Hercules. Though I love Tarot and Divination Decks, and often use them, I tend to prefer adaptations of techniques my ancestors actually used, such as gleaning guidance through dreams, omens, synchronicities and strong inner promptings. The Oracles of Apollo by John Opsopaus, Ph.D. has increased my available options by two and promises to provide me with months of Ancient Greek Oracular adventures. The author is a university professor and a scholar well versed in the esoteric practices of Hellenic Antiquity. The book is informative and very easy to read. It is also well constructed, well written and quite practical. Part I is an excellent introduction to, and overview of, 'Ancient Greek Divination'. It also provides you with rituals and ...

    The Story Reading Ape, An Author Promotion Enterprise

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

    It’s a jungle out there if you are an Indie Author!  At least this is how it seems for many who attempt to make their mark in world of writing, publishing and promoting books. There is so much to learn not only about what to publish, but where, how and with whom. Are there others out there going through the forests same as you? Is there anyone around who can help you feel a bit more secure and less alone? Might someone be able to help you avoid the pitfalls and traps? There are snakes in much of that tall grass so the more you know, the more likely you are to learn how to swing from tree to tree without leaving yourself to die on the vine.  It would be divine to have a guide, someone who knows the ropes or at least where to find one that can hold you…  Heck, even Tarzan and Clint Eastwood partnered with primates and look what it did for their lives!  Writers, ...

    The Staircase on Pine Street - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Jun 1, 2015

    . How does Alzheimer's disease affect a little girl?  How does that little girl's grandfather handle being the one afflicted? What role does the man's daughter play in this scenario? All of these questions are beautifully addressed in the book The Staircase on Pine Street written by Mariana Llanos (and illustrated by Kate Gattey). In this short but touching tale we are immersed into the worlds of all 3 characters enough to empathize with each of their lives whether or not we have been personally touched by this disease. Kudos to Llanos for using knowledge gathered from several sources to develop a story line that appears to have been lifted directly from first-hand experience. By her own admission this is not auto biographical yet the reader would never walk away feeling this was anything other than true-to-life. Because the child, Lilly, is the one around whom this story revolves it makes this book perfect for young people.  It is written with an innocence that will transport any one or any age back ...

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. . . If you want to know anything about Kabbalah or Qabalah to use Dion Fortune's spelling, this book is a must. It is the number one introduction book to the central concepts of the Tree of Life. After a short introduction the main structure in the book is based on the Tree of Life and its ten spheres or Sephirot. The book is divided in three parts. The first part gives some overviews and introduces the reader to Qabalah as the ”yoga of the west."

The second part is a detailed overview of the 6 firsts spheres in the Tree of Life and the third part covers the last 4 spheres. These chapters follow the same format. They are put forward with a list of attributes to each sphere as; title, magical image, god name, archangel, virtue ++++ Then numbered paragraphs ...

    Every Card is a Work of Art, A Review of The Enchanted Tarot 25th Anniversary Edition - by Annette Rochelle Aben

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Nov 1, 2017

     I received a copy of this beautiful tarot card deck from the creators, in exchange for an honest review.  However, this did NOT influence my review. Whether or not you are familiar with the tarot, you will find yourself enchanted with this deck. A deck appropriately titled: The Enchanted Tarot – 25th Anniversary Edition. Yes, a reissue of a classic tool of divination created by the world-renowned team of artist, Amy Zerner and her astrologer husband, Monte Farber. These two souls found each other, over 40 years ago and have been putting their unique energy into spiritual goods and services ever since. http://www.TheEnchantedWorld.com Each card in The Enchanted Tarot is a work of art, literally. Zerner spent years creating fabric collages of each card as 12" x 24" tapestry. So, the images you see are not what you have experienced with other tarot decks. Farber's wisdom and knowledge, fills the companion book to ensure that anyone using the deck will be able to connect with their own Divinity. When you combine the two, ...

    It's spooky by David Wood Review - by Aeson Knight

    Posted by Aeson Knight on Feb 1, 2016

    David Wood is a mainstream recording artist based in Columbus, Ohio. His music has been described by local media as the POP/Dance Alternative with a dash of Soul. . The music of David Wood often hits home with his blend of upbeat POP music and ballads. His latest song, 'It’s Spooky', touches on a deeper subject than the normal 'love and fun' connection that many other mainstream music stations seem to dump into our car radios. I feel it goes deeper into understanding how some relationships tend to leave battle scars which future relationships have to work past. In an interview in late October Mr. Wood shared that the song was about an abusive relationship that he had with a music manger early in his career and how it left scars that other relationships would have to work past. Abuse in itself and in any form leaves that terror in your heart. Even basic smells or just sounds will bring one back to the same position or fear and terror. This song ...

    Review of smartphones and artificial intelligence - by Andreas N. Bjørndal

    You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down. . . I phone X is here! Run and get it, is the message. Few gadgets receive so much attention as new smartphones. Let me take you through a review of smartphones and what they do to our soul. Before smartphones, I used to remember many phone numbers; my parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, my best friends many colleges and even many of the patients that most frequently contacted me. Not to mention the phone to the taxi, a few takeaways, the railway info and more. It was no effort. Today I know less than ten numbers by heart. Many people do not even know their own number because the smartphone knows. I do not remember the mobile phone of anybody in the family but my wife. That is due to the smartphone. My phone also has a calculator and if I did not like to challenge my brain and people using a calculator, I would soon also forget that multiplying by 25 is the ...

    i-Comfortable Victim a novel based on true events - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

    Through the art of story-telling, Attorney, Author, Founder, Motivational Speaker, Advocate Against Abuse, Victoria E. Broussard, Esq. presents i-Comfortable Victim, a novel based on true events. What you need to know right from the start is that this is based on the author’s personal experiences and as such provides the ability for the reader to relate to the fictional character of Saxxine De La Croix on a heart level. Yes the true events that inspired the book are repeated childhood sexually abuse however this book does more than simply take us through that journey by allowing us to see beneath the façade of the “victim” once they have become an adult.  Saxxine De La Croix does become a very successful adult and to the outside world everything appears to be business as usual but when Saxxine had to face the world behind the façade herself, the journey within the journey begins.  This book will not only take you on a journey of a woman’s life but it will take YOU on ...

    How To Do All Things - A Book Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Jan 1, 2018

    The third section of this four-part text by Mark-Age consists of fifty How-To's, the first of which is How To...' Do All Things'. This bold heading also happens to be the title for the book as a whole and the short paragraph that follows provides a great summary for everything expounded upon in the entire volume. How To Do All Things is indeed a tightly knit tome and all the information it contains simultaneously rests firmly upon and greatly expands every other piece of information contained therein. This hologram of a book is well worth reading, from cover to cover, for it gives the reader practical and time-tested tools for recognizing their own divine nature, establishing a working relationship with Spirit itself and becoming an active agent in the unfoldment of the Spiritual Hierarchy's Divine Plan. The Mark Age was the period between 1960 to 2000, a forty year span of time that helped wrap up the old Age of Pisces and prepare humanity for living in the New Aquarian Age. This period ...

    The Gift of Cancer - A Life Changing Book - by Annette

    Posted by Annette Rochelle Aben on Apr 1, 2015

      More than likely every life on this planet has been touched by cancer at some point.  Perhaps a family member, a neighbor, your former teacher or even your beloved family pet received the diagnosis. Imagine now that YOU yourself were to hear those words spoken to you about YOU.  How would you react?  What would you do in such a case? Well I know how one young lady handled it, she used her diagnosis to turn her life around and in the process was completely healed AND used the process she went through to write a book to help others. Wendy Treynor. Ph. D. wrote The Gift of Cancer – A Life Changing Book – because that is how she saw it and that is what happened. This book is not only remarkable because it is a true story it IS the story. Filled with journal entries, hand drawn illustrations and the revelations of the true meanings of life and love, you will find a reason to celebrate the gift of ...

    The Tablets of Light - A Review by Hercules Invictus

    Posted by Hercules Invictus on Oct 1, 2017

    The Tablets of Light, channeled and co-authored by Danielle Rama Hoffman, is not a book in the usual sense of the word. It looks like a book, is structured and can be read like one, but it is not a standard terrestrial document with a clear beginning, middle or end. It is instead a timeless invitation to connect with Source itself, plus an opportunity to experience yourself as a multidimensional being interacting with other multidimensional beings (most notably Thoth) on a multidimensional level.Thoth was called Hermes and Mercury by my Greco-Roman ancestors and as Trismegistus (the Thrice Great) he is the ultimate Revelator of the Western Mystery Tradition. There is a wealth of information contained between the covers, including thought-provoking insights on Unity Consciousness,Wholeness, Oracular Vision, Genius, Creativity, Evolution, Light, our innate Divinity and our unique reasons for incarnating in the here and now. Simple exercises are scattered throughout The Tablets of Light and serve to further immerse you into Thoth's level of reality. Thoth's style is personal, welcoming and conversational. It subtly ...

    The Desire Map - By Danielle Laporte

    Posted by Mary K Weinhagen on Feb 1, 2015

    What if knowing how you want to FEEL is indeed the most potent clarity you can have? *spoiler alert* It is! I have to confess that when I picked up The Desire Map (a guide to creating goals with soul) by Danielle Laporte I already had a bias. I LOVE Danielle's work. This remarkable, magical, book is like taking a sacred journey to discover a new you while showing you what real success entails. And it has, in so many ways, changed my life. The Desire Map is actually two books in one - Book One provides The Theory, while Book Two is The Workbook.  I highly recommend you thoroughly explore all of it... yet the beauty is that when you need a bit of inspiration you can dig into theory... when you're ready for a bit of action you can dig into the workbook. And it really won't matter which order you choose to do it in. I dearly wish I could sum up Danielle's theory in a sentence or two, but that would be ...
