The topic is books. We know our book list on the website is
way behind "the times". Updating it is on our "to do" list,
but it will take awhile. Meanwhile, a couple of books have come
to our attention for special reasons:
First: Sheri Minelli, is a member of the Lighten-Up Group who
lives in Carlsbad, California. We trained Sheri as a Clinical
Hypnotherapist and with additional training and extensive experience
she became a Birth Educator and Birth Coach. Recently, right along
with birthing twins herself, Sheri birthed an extraordinary book
titled: "Journey Into Motherhood, Inspirational Stories of Natural
Birth." Christine Northup, M.D., (well known by millions for her
"Womenís Bodies, Womenís Wisdom" book and newsletters) wrote of
Sheriís book: "What a fabulous book. All women and girls need
to hear these stories and know, really know, that natural birth
is full of magnificent, life changing wisdom."
Visit Sheriís website (where you can order the book too).
Or phone: 760.431-2228
Sheri has also made a Lighten-Up Meditation C.D. (which we
highly recommend.) Sheri's book and CD are also available
Second: Linkie Seltzer Cohn, a new Lighten-Up Group member,
in Dallas Texas recently met with Dr. Hugh and gifted him with:
"Winnerís for Life, A Teenagerís Guide To Success using the Proven
Power of Goal Setting"
Authored by Ms. Cohn, who has spent a life time working with
youth organizations and Donny Anderson, a two time All American
Winner and past chairman of the National Football League Alumni,
this book is just Great for young people, in particular, and all
people, in general, who want some real life motivation and expertise
in setting and achieving goals. Truly an easy and fun read and
full of really inspiring stories and practical, effective steps
for success. A perfect graduation gift! Website is www.winnersforlife.com
Third: Another new member of the Lighten-Up Group and a newcomer
to Palm Springs California is Ann Muller, whom we have had the
great pleasure and delight of meeting. Ann introduced us to: "Jesus
and The Essenes" written by Dolores Cannon. This book is about
a series of past life regressions of a young woman who was able,
in an unconscious trance state, to recall a life time as Sudi,
an Essene in the Essene Community, in which Jesus was raised and
taught. This book has the "ring of truth" we look for in such
books. Remember as you read any book to keep your "inner tunner"
tuned. Remember as you read this book that what the Essenes
were taught 2000 years ago of stories handed down for generations
(such as the stories of Moses, Noah etc.) may have been as inaccurate
in some details as what weíve received today. As Sudi himself
notes: "Many tongues wrap themselves around tales and in the
telling bend them."
That said, check out what Sudi says of
Sodom and Ghomorrea and the radiation (!) that affected Lotís
wife. Read, with goose bumps (or God Bumps as a Reverend friend
calls them), as Sudi describes the Star over Bethlehem. What Sudi
believes happened in the Resurrection is extremely close to what
LIGHT is writing of it. Website is: www.ozarkmt.com
Whether it is available through amazon etal, we donít know.
The book is "way worth" tracking down and reading.
Last and certainly not least, Nicole Elizabeth Biggs, is a
Working Mom - yes, with capitol letters, She is working towards
her Psychology degree, working to support her children, working
to support a dependent mother and, obviously, works on writing
as well. In the middle of all of this she also managed to get
hypnotherapy training from us.
Nicole writes with wit, humor and insight of her struggles
to find herself and shares with the reader positive, powerful,
practical steps for accomplishing oneís desires. Itís an wonderful
read full of helpful information. Her book is: "The Single Motherís
Journey to Wholeness" and it is available at www.amazon.com
Enjoy Your Reading!
