The Wealthy Spirit

Daily Affirmations for Financial Stress Reduction

by Chellie Campbell

The Wealthy spirit Many people spend their lives searching for the means to acquire tremendous financial wealth. They look to external resources to give them what they want, and are ultimately disappointed when their dreams don’t turn out the way they had planned. They either become incredibly wealthy at the expense of their spiritual well being, family, and friends, or they never acquire the riches they’ve aspired to, and in their disappointment, they discover they’ve lost all sense of self-worth.

The Wealthy Spirit is the only book that offers an approach to achieving both spiritual and financial wealth. Through a series of daily affirmations that focus on the reader’s internal strength and capacity for change, this book will set them on a path toward personal enlightenment and wealth in body, mind, and spirit.
We love this book because the affirmations have far reaching applications and apply to business and life, with real tips and inspiration for achieving financial success.

Books on Happiness

The Happiness Project

Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun

by Gretchen Rubin

The Happiness Project

Rubin is not an unhappy woman: she has a loving husband, two great kids and a writing career in New York City. Still, she could-and, arguably, should-be happier. Thus, her methodical (and bizarre) happiness project: spend one year achieving careful, measurable goals in different areas of life (marriage, work, parenting, self-fulfillment) and build on them cumulatively, using concrete steps (such as, in January, going to bed earlier, exercising better, getting organized, and “acting more energetic”). By December, she’s striving bemusedly to keep increasing happiness in every aspect of her life.

This is my favorite book on Happiness, mainly because of the way Gretchen weaves her personal story into her analysis, providing us with humorous clips and a window into her world.

Just like us, she’s human!

You Can Heal Your Life

An excellent book for restructuring one’s life and finding self- esteem and self-love.

by Louise Hay

You can heal your life by Louise Hay

If you have never heard of Louise Hay and her bestselling book You Can Heal Your Life, you may want to check it out. Whether your physical ailment is as common as lower back pain or as chronic as migraine headaches, Louise explains how limiting beliefs and ideas can cause illness and how you can change your thinking to prevent disease and heal yourself. In fact, Louise cured her own life-threatening cancer using the techniques she offers in this book, her key message being: “If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.”

What I love most about this book is the alphabetical chart listing hundreds of bodily problems and their links to the mindset that is their probable cause (For example: Sore throat equals “holding in angry words, feeling unable to express the self”; allergies equal “who are you allergic to? Denying your own power”). For each one, she suggests a new thought pattern for healing—simple affirmations that when practiced with discipline can lead to life altering results.

Broken Open:

How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

Elizabeth Lesser

Broken OpenThis review from Publisher’s Weekly says it all about this book which combines personal stories with deep thinker insights to grant us wisdom and peace around making changes, embracing challenges and turning loss into opportunity on every level:

Cofounder of the upstate New York Omega Institute and author of The Seeker’s Guide, Lesser uses her own life story, and those of others, to explore what she calls the “Phoenix Process,” or positive life change that can emerge from very difficult life events. In short, episodic chapters, Lesser cites stories of those who have gone through a divorce (as she has), lost a child or suffered a terminal illness. She brings in thinkers such as Tibetan Buddhist Pema Chodron, the late philosopher Joseph Campbell and her longtime friend and colleague Ram Dass to illustrate how meditation and belief in a spirit that works through people can help break through fear and hopelessness.

Lesser’s own Phoenix Process began when, having previously been “betrayed” by her husband, she embarked on an adulterous affair (with a “shaman lover”) that lasted a year and, in her terms, broke her open and allowed her to change.

Lesser doesn’t describe her life events in enough detail for them to stand on their own as memoir; rather, she puts them in the service of an explicitly Nietzschean argument: that one needs to embrace one’s own “evil” in order to grow. Lesser’s resolve comes through in her clear, even, declarative prose, and her use of jargon is sparing and directed. But with conventional morality off the table and frequently overgeneralized musings sprinkled in (“Women still nurture and sustain me, but it is men who call me to grow, to examine my presumptions, to widen the boundaries of my heart”), the book can feel less the delineation of a process than a careful set of self-justifications. That sense is mitigated, however, by the anecdotes of other Phoenix veterans, via Omega and other parts of Lesser’s life.

A senior advisor at Omega, New York Times best-selling author, and host on Oprah Radio, Elizabeth is a speaker at the Ladies Who Launch Global Conference New York location on November 8 – 9, 2010.

Young World Rising:

How Technology and Entrepreneurship are Changing the World from the Bottom Up

by Rob Salkowitz

Rob_170You may be asking yourself the same questions I am: How is the world changing with the technology and social media revolution that we are currently in the midst of? What will be the impact on our children, but perhaps more importantly, how will our children impact the world, innovate business, and shift society and traditional perspectives as we know them? In a book that challenges the way we currently think about business and global change, Rob Salkowitz takes a stab at answering these questions and more– Young World Rising: How Technology and Entrepreneurship are Changing the World from the Bottom Up is a fascinating and thought-provoking glimpse into the possibilities and impact that internet trends will have on the industrialized world and the potential to reshape entire societies from the “young entrepreneur” point of view. I consider this a must-read for anyone who wants to stay current, or at the very least, look through a window into the world of the emerging youth generation.

Rob Salkowitz will be speaking in Seattle on November 8-9
at Dream It! Launch It! Live It!

What’s Up Down There?

by Lissa Rankin

Questions You’d Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend


What’s Up Down There?Featured Lady Lissa Rankin tells it like it is in this “bare all” book about the female body-literally, everything you want to ask the doc but are either too embarrassed or too uninformed to put yourself on the line. The naked truth? Yes. But finally a book that makes you laugh while giving you real knowledge and advice that “every woman wants but won’t admit to.” Worth the read, even if better done in private.
