by Janet Smith Warfield


Shift is a creative tool for expanding consciousness. Through thought-provoking questions, stories, illustrations, and poetry, Shift draws out new ways of thinking about old challenges. Its purpose is to bring powerful peace to the reader and, as a result, powerful peace to the planet, one reader at a time. The book is unique in using words to look at words, meanings, human perception, emotions, and actions. Its words are not Truth; they are catalysts helping readers find their own truths. Shift includes: *Optical illusions *Ambigrams *Ink blots *Cloud patterns *A human consciousness diagram *A discussion of the Human Truth Puzzle that has been solved over and over by person after person, but cannot be adequately communicated using words and symbols. *A startling new meaning to the writings of Friedrich Nietzsche similar to the startling new meaning Dan Brown gave to The Last Supper in The Da Vinci Code. It is time. We must. We can. [More]

<< The Future That Brought Her Here:
Memoir of a Call to Awaken

by Deborah DeNicola

5.0 out of 5 stars
Rich in Every Sense of the Word

I get easily bored with books. I read a few chapters, discover nothing new and move on. Deborah Denicola’s “The Future that Brought Her Here” was an exciting change. I devoured it from cover to cover.

Poignantly beautiful, spiked by jolting word juxtapositions, sprinkled with spectacular poetry, “The Future that Brought Her Here” seamlessly blends an internal world of dreams, third-eye visions, fears, personal struggles, irreconcilable relationships, feelings of rootlessness, with external location shifts from Washington State to Boston to Israel to Colorado to France with historical, spiritual, psychological explorations into the Black Madonnas, the Book of Revelation’s woman of light, channeling, labyrinths, father/daughter relationships, male/female relationships, and so many other fascinating web-of-life strands.

“The Future that Brought Her Here” is rich in every sense of the word. If you’re on your own spiritual journey, get it.” – Janet Smith Warfield [More]

The Lens of Perception:
A User’s Guide to Higher Consciousness >>

Playing in the “invisible sandbox”
Beginning with the premise that “we are all part of a reality that is not at all as we perceive it through our five senses,” Hal Zina Bennett weaves words that mesmerize, providing fleeting glimpses into his own “invisible sandbox.” Sometimes, he does this through chilling nightmares and hallucinations that feel real despite their grotesque landscapes. – Janet Smith Warfield [More]

The Only Thing That Matters<< The Only Thing That Matters: Book 2 in the Conversations with Humanity Series
by Neale Donald Walsch

Something very unusual is occurring on this planet right now. You have no doubt noticed it. It may be producing a more than normal amount of challenge and disjointedness in your life, and perhaps even some major upheavals. You are probably noticing it in the lives of others as well.

For a while you may have thought that this was all just your mind playing tricks on you; that things were not really happening any differently, and that you’re just a little tired, a little overcommitted, a little oversensitive.

But now, as each day presents itself with obstacles mounting and challenges increasing and more and more personal issues coming up to be faced and healed, it is apparent that all of this is not an illusion, not an exaggeration. So you may be asking, “Why is all this happening? What am I doing wrong?”

And here’s the answer . . . You’re doing nothing wrong. AND . . . there is something very unusual going on right now in your life, and all over the planet. [More]

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment >>
by Eckhart Tolle

It’s no wonder that The Power of Now has sold over 2 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 30 foreign languages. Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.

In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, “the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.”

Featuring a new preface by the author, this paperback shows that only after regaining awareness of Being, liberated from Mind and intensely in the Now, is there Enlightenment. [More]

<< The Silent Female Scream
by Rosjke Hasseldine (Oct 31, 2007)

5.0 out of 5 stars
Courageous and Powerful – A Must Read for Every Woman on This Planet!

Rosjke Hasseldine is a psychotherapist specializing in women, mothers and daughters. She doesn’t mince words.

“The Silent Female Scream Revolution is a wake-up call for girls and women everywhere to dare to speak – to start speaking with a voice that expects to be heard, whether it is convenient or not, whether others want to hear you or not. Whether or not there is a pervasive fear that your voice will change the dynamics and roles within the family and rearrange the responsibility for nurturing. The world needs women’s voices – whole, truthful, emotionally honest and vocal.”

“Women’s voices have been silenced for generations. We have been taught to fit around what others think, others need, and to feel wrong when we speak our truth with passion. This kind of wounding has left its scars on every mother and daughter.”

“… I have had too many experiences and witnessed too many (women’s) needs being ignored, shamed, and stone-walled. We have had our needs turned around in order to make us look defective for needing. And we have been shouted down with anger or silence. … the words are designed to silence and shame us into our good-girl box.”

Every woman who has ever felt shamed or manipulated into submission and conformity needs to read this book. Men, don’t bother unless you’re open to building a stronger society based on mutual respect and dialog. [More]

<< You Are a Gift to the World: Blessings from My Mom
<< by Michael Paul Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars
What a Beautiful Book!

As a ten year old, Michael Brown was stubborn, balky, and irritable. His mother kept telling him, “Michael, you are a Gift to the World!”

“Yeh, right!”

It just wasn’t true. Other people told him all the time that he was unlovable, not good enough, and couldn’t do anything right. His mother was just saying he was a gift to the world because she was his mother. His own eyes and ears told him differently.

With love, intention and vision, Mike’s mother kept saying, “Michael, you are a gift to the world.” After hundreds of repetitions, he finally got it. Finally, he had the ears to hear and the eyes to see. When he believed that he was a gift to the world, he wrote this book and became the gift that he is to all of us.

Thanks, Michael, for finally listening to and hearing your mom. You and your mom have enriched us all. – Janet Smith Warfield [More]

You Have the Power: Choosing Courage in a Culture of Fear >>
by Frances Moore Lappe

Frances Moore Lapp – author of the million-selling Diet for a Small Planet – and Jeffrey Perkins offer the radical notion that our fears can be a source of energy to create the lives and the world we want.

Now more than ever, it seems, our lives and the lives of our loved ones are at risk. Our normal response is to retreat. But what if fear were not a negative force but a positive one-a source of energy and strength? Sharing their own intimate journeys with fear, as well as the experiences of others, the authors offer seven liberating notions that can help unleash your power to walk into the unknown and create a more fulfilling, authentic life.

Zen Buddhism: Selected Writings of D. T. Suzuki
by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki

No other figure in history has played a bigger part in opening the West to Buddhism than the eminent Zen author, D.T. Suzuki, and in this reissue of his best work readers are given the very heart of Zen teaching. Zen Buddhism, which sold more than 125,000 as an Anchor paperback after its publication in 1956, includes a basic historical background as well as a thorough overview of the techniques for Zen practice. Concepts and terminology such as satori, zazen, and koans, as well as the various elements of this philosophy are all given clear explanations. But while Suzuki takes nothing for granted in the reader’s understanding of the fundamentals, he does not give a merely rudimentary overview. Each of the essays included here, particularly those on the unconscious mind and the relation of Zen to Western philosophy, go far beyond other sources for their penetrating insights and timeless wisdom.
