Louise Hay and Hay House Publishing
Louise L. Hay ~ 1926-2017
“Meeting Louise changed the direction of my life,” said Reid Tracy, President and CEO of Hay House, Inc. “Her passion for serving others translated into everything she did. Simply by working alongside her, an analytical accountant like me transformed into someone who became aware of the power of affirmations and self-love. Being able to learn from her has been one of my life’s greatest blessings. The beauty of Louise was that you didn’t have to work alongside her to learn from her, you felt like you were there with her, with every word you read or heard.”
Louise Hay was known as one of the founders of the self-help movement and was the author of Heal Your Body and the international bestseller You Can Heal Your Life. Louise was a metaphysical lecturer and teacher with more than 50 million books sold worldwide. For more than 30 years, she has helped people throughout the world discover and implement the full potential of their own creative powers for personal growth and self-healing.
Through Louise's healing techniques and positive philosophy, millions have learned how to create more of what they want in their lives, including more wellness in their bodies, minds, and spirits.
“In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete.” – Louise L. Hay
“Eckhart is a spiritual teacher and author who was born in Germany and educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge. At the age of 29, a profound inner transformation radically changed the course of his life. The next few years were devoted to understanding, integrating and deepening that transformation, which marked the beginning of an intense inward journey. Later, he began to work in London with individuals and small groups as a counselor and spiritual teacher. Eckhart Tolle is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Power of Now and the highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, which are widely regarded as two of the most influential spiritual books of our time.”
THE POWER OF NOW - A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
“To make the journey into the Now we will need to leave our analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. From the very first page of this extraordinary book, we move rapidly into a significantly higher altitude where we breathe a lighter air. We become connected to the indestructible essence of our Being.”
A NEW EARTH - Awakening to your Life’s purpose
“Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.”
Quotes from Eckhart Tolle
“When you look upon another human being and feel great love toward them, or when you contemplate beauty in nature and something within you responds deeply to it, close your eyes for a moment and feel the essence of that love or that beauty within you, inseparable from who you are, your true nature.”
“The realm of consciousness is much vaster than thought can grasp. When you no longer believe everything you think, you step out of thought and see clearly that the thinker is not who you are.”
“You cannot find yourself in the past or future. The only place where you can find yourself is in the Now.”
“You are not separate from the whole. You are one with the sun, the earth, the air. You don't have a life. You are life.”
“All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”
“Seek out a tree and let it teach you stillness.”
“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”
Abraham-Hicks & The Law of Attraction
Abraham-Hicks Publications is the original source material for the thousands of books, films, essays and lectures about the Law of Attraction. On the Abraham-Hicks website you will find clarification of the basics, practical applications and up-to-the-moment information regarding the Law of Attraction (also known as “The Teachings of Abraham”). The Abraham-Hicks YouTube channel provides a range of video clips from some of their workshops over the years. Their books include The Law of Attraction, Ask and It Is Given, Money and the Law of Attraction and The Vortex.
So who or what is Abraham? Abraham have described themselves as “a group consciousness from the non-physical dimension”. Esther Hicks calls Abraham “infinite intelligence,” and to Jerry Hicks they are “the purest form of love I've ever experienced.”
The process by which Esther receives information from Abraham has been described as channeling, but Abraham has explained as follows: “Jerry and Esther never used the word channeling”, “It is used when applied to them, but they have never used it, because it means many things of which they are not, you see”. “You could leave the channeling out of it. Call it inspiration; that's all it is. You don't call the basketball player a channeler, but he is; he's an extension of Source Energy. You don't call the surgeon a channeler, but he is. You don't call the musician, the magnificent master musician, you don't call him a channeler, but he is. He's channeling the broader essence of who he is into the specifics of what he is about.”
The Seth Material + Jane Roberts
Seth is non-physical consciousness who, during the 1960s to mid 1980s, spoke through the author Jane Roberts while she was in trance, and coined the phrase “You Create Your Own Reality”.
Seth has become an internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher and books written by Seth have sold over seven million copies and have been translated into over eleven languages. Books written by Seth include “Seth Speaks - the Eternal Validity of the Soul” and “The Nature of Personal Reality”.
SETH SPEAKS - The Eternal Validity of the Soul
“Perhaps the most popular of the Seth books. In it he discusses the eternal validity of the soul and presents his very unique and original view of physical and non-physical reality. Topics include: what to expect immediately after death, how to glimpse into past lives, ways to contact those who have died and more...”
THE NATURE OF PERSONAL REALITY
“Considered by many to be one of the finest metaphysical books ever written! Seth provides a clear articulation of how people create their reality from their thoughts, emotions and beliefs and provides the tools for individuals to truly take charge of their minds and their lives.”
Quotes from Seth
“Events are not things that happen to you. They are materialized experiences formed by you, according to your expectations and beliefs.”
“If you do not like your experience, then you must change the nature of your conscious thoughts and expectations.”
“Now, you ARE your entity (your soul). You are its materialization in space and time as you understand it. There is no division between your entity and what you are...”
“As I have said before, time as you think of it does not exist.”
