Living The Mindful Way by Sharon L. Horstead

Many of us are walking around half unconscious to who we are and what makes us truly happy. This costs us in terms of missed opportunities to experience the thrill of life, not being able to tap into the source of our power, wandering aimlessly and searching for a better life, and feeling disconnected from our Self, our loved ones and the world. It doesn't take much for you to wake up, become mindfully aware in the moment, and respond authentically to life. When you let your whole life become a meditation in progress, you don't need to take much extra time or go out of your way to create the rich, rewarding, and enjoyable life that is meant to be yours. This book is stripped down to the basic essence of mindfulness meditation, offering 85 simple practices that will quickly help you: - find the juice and joy inside and all around you; - find the strength to take whatever you do to the next level; - find your core purpose so you always make the right choices; - find the courage to follow your heart and love deeply; and - ultimately, find your inner peace.


The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist.
The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, above all, following our dreams.


Birda - Paulo Coelho

Brida, a young Irish girl, and her quest for knowledge. She has long been interested in various aspects of magic but is searching for something more. Her search leads her to people of great wisdom, who begin to teach Brida about the spiritual world. She meets a wise man who dwells in a forest, who teaches her about overcoming her fears and trusting in the goodness of the world, and a woman who teaches her how to dance to the music of the world, and how to pray to the moon. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to become a witch.


The Secret - Rhonda Byrne

The Secret posits that the law of attraction is a natural law which determines the complete order of the universe and of our personal lives through the process of "like attracts like". The author claims that as we think and feel, a corresponding frequency is sent out into the universe that attracts back to us events and circumstances on that same frequency. For example, if you think angry thoughts and feel angry, it is claimed that you will attract back events and circumstances that cause you to feel more anger. Conversely, if you think and feel positively, you will attract back positive events and circumstances. Proponents of the law claim that desirable outcomes such as health, wealth, and happiness can be attracted simply by changing one's thoughts and feelings.
