The Ecstasy of Surrender: 12 Surprising Ways Letting Go Can Empower Your Life by Judith Orloff M.D.
The Ecstasy of Surrender: 12 Surprising Ways Letting Go Can Empower Your Life

New Connexion Journal, February 24, 2014

The Ecstasy of Surrender, Judith Orloff, Harmony Books, 2014, $26
Judith Orloff, M.D., a UCLA psychiatrist and beloved intuitive healer, masterfully explores how the power of letting go allows you to achieve personal and spiritual freedom. Combining mainstream medicine and beyond, Dr. Orloff blows apart old ideas about health, aging, sex, power, beauty and money by showing that surrender is not defeat ��" it is the missing key to true success. She defines surrender as the grace of knowing when to flow with life rather than fighting it or pushing so hard you sabotage yourself. I especially love the section on surrendering in relationships ��" how to surrender to love and let go of obsessive and “delusional” relationships that stand in the way of love. Also, you’ll learn the art of setting boundaries with toxic people and practice the mantra: No is a complete sentence. The great miracle of surrender is that you can live in the passionate zone of the heart and gain deep faith in yourself and the divinity of your life. Dr. Orloff writes, "If you're like me ��" someone who wants to become everything you were meant to be and more ��" surrender is a doorway in." Savor the wisdom and joy that jumps off of the pages.

Whole Health reveals how to reach optimum wellness by understanding the inescapable effect that the interconnected physical body, mind and spirit have on our health and well-being. Some of the exercises are based on ancient healing techniques. For example, Dr. Mark Mincolla’s whole health electromagnetic muscle testing, a customized system of neuromuscular biofeedback used as a vehicle for assessing, balancing and preserving Chi, is based on classical Chinese medicine, a 5,000-year-old system of human energy diagnostics. What you might enjoy best about the book is that it presents a myriad of diagnostic and healing resources for reaching optimal health such as sixth sense energy diagnosis, finding your constitution, acupuncture points, thought and word power, Qi Gong, food energy, mantras, and spirit healing for individual organs in your body. This powerful book is filled with valuable information on how you can work with your body’s intuitive nature to feel better.

New Connexion Journal, February 24, 2014

How Roland Rolls, Jim Carrey, Some Kind of Garden Media, 2013, $16.95
How do you introduce young children to the concept of the interconnectedness of all living things? That life is eternal? With actor Jim Carrey’s children’s book, How Roland Rolls, you and your child can spend quality time reading an entertaining story about a wave named Roland that believes that “one day, when he hits the beach, his life will be over.” But Roland finds that he has and always will be part of the larger ocean. Roland comes to the conclusion that death is not the end: “And they saw that together they played a much bigger role ��" they were in every ice cube between the North and South pole.” With realistic illustrations that children can relate to, you can share an important and vital fact of our times: We are all indeed connected to each other and all things in the universe.

Afterlife: Uncovering the Secrets of Life After Death by Barry Eaton
Afterlife: Uncovering the Secrets of Life After Death

New Connexion Journal, February 24, 2014

Afterlife, Barry Eaton, Jeremy P. Tarcher/Penguin, 2013, $16.95
Ever wonder what happens to us after we die? According to author and medium Barry Eaton, death is not the end but a passage into a new plane of existence. In Afterlife, Eaton describes his interviews and conversations with spirits that have made that passage while also sharing his own past-life regression death experience. He sheds light on the process of death and the journey to a new plane from a spirit’s standpoint, and how it’s a time of reflection and healing. He explores how a spirit adapts to no longer being in a body and how soul families assist with the transition. He describes how a spirit comes to understand the effects of beliefs and karma on human life, and how it’s cleared and healed. He then addresses the afterlife activities, learning and existence we can all look forward to in the great beyond. Afterlife helps answer questions about death and assuage our fears of the unknown and uncertainty about what comes after death. This is truly a heartfelt and often personal account of the afterlife, leaving the reader with a sense of certainty that the afterlife will be more than expected.
