Soul Truth - Lift the Veil of Illusion. Free Yourself from Your Mind. Awaken to Your Purpose (Paperback): Grant Tappe Soul Truth - Lift the Veil of Illusion. Free Yourself from Your Mind. Awaken to Your Purpose (Paperback)

Soul Truth is a journey of self-discovery, self-awareness and awakening. It reveals universal truths that apply to all, from the lifeless to the living. Above all it is the revelation that as a human, your greatest foe is your mind and its treachery, and how its purpose is to hold and hide you from your destiny. Unknowingly we are dominated by the deceptive fears and desires of our mind's dark influence. We become addicted to our mind's created needs. We become victims of our poorly constructed and self-destructive choices; with this we lose touch with ourselves and our truth. Furthermore, in the hope of finding meaning to escape from the pressures of our chaotic lives, we chase the elaborate and convincing external 'red herrings' the mind deceptively scatters around us to distract us from our Soul. The purpose of Soul Truth is to help the reader unlock and reveal the truth of the game of life' to expose 'the illusion' we have all been deceived into purchasing. This is achieved through a greater understanding of how the unseen consciousness 'mechanisms' of which we are both comprised and part of, operate and function. Soul Truth is not a religious, esoteric or ethereal quest. It is a practical approach to helping you reveal your purpose and destiny.

Tap into your extraordinary human capacity for healing, using the miraculous power of group intention and its 'mirror effect' In The Power of Eight, Lynne McTaggart - an expert on the science of spirituality - reveals her remarkable findings from 10 years of experiments designed to discover how group intention can heal our lives - and change the world for the better. When individuals in a group focus their intention together on a single target, a powerful collective dynamic emerges that can heal long-standing conditions, mend fractured relationships, lower violence and even rekindle life purpose. But the greatest discovery of McTaggart's experiments is that group intention has a mirror effect, not only transforming the recipient but also reflecting back on the senders. This book chronicles McTaggart's own journey to make sense of all the miracles she witnessed, delving into the larger context of the science behind this phenomenon. With inspiration from the riveting stories of hundreds of people who have experienced life-altering transformations and a complete how-to of McTaggart's techniques, you will learn to harness the collective energies of The Power of Eight and unleash the power you hold inside of you to heal your own life - and the world around you.

** SHORTLISTED FOR THE EDWARD STANFORD TRAVEL WRITING AWARD - TRAVEL MEMOIR OF THE YEAR ** A lovely, civilised and transporting read, that should have all of us stepping out to meet the world with fresh eyes.' - Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'An enticing read that makes every walk Humble describes an adventure' - Ranulph Fiennes 'A beautiful and magnificent book. A paean to a simple act. I defy you to read this book and not be inspired to walk, march or hike - and as a result live a better life more connected with nature and the world around you.' - Simon Reeve 'A lovely book, fast-flowing yet at every turn giving the reader pause for thought. Kate Humble makes a delightful companion, her words full of sunshine and the raw pleasure she radiates as she encounters life in its many unexpected forms.' - Benedict Allen 'I've discovered that going for a daily walk has become as essential to me feeling good for the rest of the day as that first cup of tea. But I would argue that all I am doing is responding to a natural need we all have. Humans have always been migrants, the physiological urge to be nomadic is deep-rooted in all of us and perhaps because of that our brains are stimulated by walking. I solve all sorts of problems, formulate ideas, work things out to that gentle rhythm of self-propelled movement.' - Kate Humble Thinking on My Feet tells the story of Kate's walking year - shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate's inspiring narrative not only records her walks (and runs) throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions throughout - capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows - and shares the outcomes: a problem solved, a mood lifted, an idea or opportunity borne. As she explores the reasons why we walk, whether for creative energy, challenge and pleasure, or therapeutic benefits, Kate's reflections and insights will encourage, motivate and spur readers into action. Also featured are Kate's walks with others who have discovered the magical, soothing effect of putting one foot in front of the other - the artist who walks to find inspiration for his next painting; the man who takes people battling with addiction to climb mountains; the woman who walked every footpath in Wales (3,700 miles) when she discovered she had cancer. This book will inspire you to change your perspective by applying walking to your daily endeavours. *PRAISE FOR THINKING ON MY FEET * 'A diary of sorts, charting a year of wonderful walks through the sun, wind and rain...each entry builds an image of her life in the great outdoors...it sounds idyllic to say the least.' - Sunday Express, S Magazine 'These are 365 days of inspiration to get out and, sometimes literally, smell the flowers.' - Wanderlust Magazine 'Humble's book about going for a walk can inspire absolutely anyone to make a change. Because all you have to do is step outside the front door.' - Waitrose Weekend 'Witty, enlightening and often startlingly profound' - Country Walking Magazine

Have you ever wondered if there might be something more to life? When Siobhan Curham decided to write a book about happiness there was only one small problem, which became a massive problem as soon as she sat down to write - she wasn't truly happy. Not wanting to be a fraud, Siobhan set out to discover the secret to true and lasting happiness. Her quest took her on an unexpected path deep into the heart of the world's spiritual traditions. Something More is a funny and moving account of Siobhan's journey, as she found religion - and promptly lost it again - then went on to develop her own spiritual 'pick and mix' of practises from Buddhist chanting, Irish yoga, Jewish philosophy and Reiki healing, to connecting with her inner goddess and finding her shamanic spirit animal (who, it turns out, was a large, black, talking horse). Full of brutally honest anecdotes and age-old wisdom, Something More is for anyone who has ever thought about exploring their spiritual side, and those who might feel disillusioned by organised religion but still crave that elusive 'something more'. After all, who wouldn't want to find inner peace and everlasting happiness?

Vir baie uitdagings en vraagstukke van die moderne lewe kon die skrywer nie al die antwoorde in die Bybel kry nie. Sy besef dat die wereld waarin ons vandag leef, radikaal anders is as die wereld van ons oumagrootjies. Tong-in-die-kies vertrek sy op 'n spirituele reis wat by die Oerknal begin. Sy beleef die vorming van die aarde, die begin van lewe, evolusie, die ontstaan van Homo sapiens, en die ontstaan van die spirituele bewussyn van die mens. Op pad kom sy Zoroaster, die Boeddha, Jesus, Mohammed en Einstein tee. Haar reis na die dieper betekenis van die lewe is uiteindelik 'n intellektuele geskiedenis van die mensdom wat eindig by globalisering, relatiwiteitsteorie en kosmologie. Sy kom tot die ontdekking dat die simboliek van die Christendom behou moet word maar dat nuwe betekenis daaraan gegee moet word; en dat dit gedoen kan word deur onsself te leer ken.

Marcus Aurelius kan as 地 ware filosoof-koning beskou word. Ten spyte van sy roem en weelderige lewe aan die hof, het hy voortdurend gestreef na 地 eenvoudige lewe, innerlike vryheid en persoonlike spirituele groei. Sy Meditasies of Bepeinsinge wat tydens sy laaste lewensjare neergeskryf is, is in 12 boeke verdeel en is nie filosofiese teoriee nie, maar praktiese oefeninge om die filosofie in die leser se gedagtes en optrede te laat deurwerk. Hy besin oor die heelal en die mens as deel daarvan, die verantwoordelikhede van die mens as 地 sosiale wese, verdraagsaamheid teenoor alle mense, hoe om in harmonie met ander en in ooreenstemming met jou ware aard te leef, hoe om te aanvaar wat met jou gebeur, en uiteindelik ook die dood te aanvaar. Tydens Marcus se heerskappy is die Christene kwaai vervolg, maar tog het sy denke oor 地 ingetoe leefwyse wat nie deur drif nie, maar deur verantwoordelikheid en plig beheer word, 地 groot invloed op die Christendom uitgeoefen. Sy werk word vandag nog gelees en het in 地 era waarin waarde aan spirituele groei geheg word, nuwe betekenis gekry.

Using this book, you'll come to understand how:

  • your metabolism goes haywire when dysfunction takes place in the mitochondria, the body's natural powerhouse
  • a cyclical ketogenic diet - low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats - is the way to optimize the biochemical processes that suppress disease and support healing
  • following a ketogenic diet can boost brain power, increase energy, assist weight loss and bring about many more health benefits

This simple but powerful diet manifesto can help not only to treat and prevent serious illness, but will also empower you to take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel it needs for healing and thriving.

How the scientific study of magic reveals intriguing-and often unsettling-insights into the mysteries of the human mind. What do we see when we watch a magician pull a rabbit out of a hat or read a person's mind? We are captivated by an illusion; we applaud the fact that we have been fooled. Why do we enjoy experiencing what seems clearly impossible, or at least beyond our powers of explanation? In Experiencing the Impossible, Gustav Kuhn examines the psychological processes that underpin our experience of magic. Kuhn, a psychologist and a magician, reveals the intriguing-and often unsettling-insights into the human mind that the scientific study of magic provides. Magic, Kuhn explains, creates a cognitive conflict between what we believe to be true (for example, a rabbit could not be in that hat) and what we experience (a rabbit has just come out of that hat!). Drawing on the latest psychological, neurological, and philosophical research, he suggests that misdirection is at the heart of all magic tricks, and he offers a scientific theory of misdirection. He explores, among other topics, our propensity for magical thinking, the malleability of our perceptual experiences, forgetting and misremembering, free will and mind control, and how magic is applied outside entertaiment-the use of illusion in human-computer interaction, politics, warfare, and elsewhere. We may be surprised to learn how little of the world we actually perceive, how little we can trust what we see and remember, and how little we are in charge of our thoughts and actions. Exploring magic, Kuhn illuminates the complex-and almost magical-mechanisms underlying our daily activities.
