A comprehensive guide for creating a daily spiritual practice, Growing Your Inner Light gives specific advice on developing a unique spiritual path that fits exactly who you are, and what you hope to grow into as a spiritual being. Author Lara Owen clearly shows how a personalized practice can open the doors to living fully with integrity and to feeling connected with the surrounding world. For readers yearning for a sense of inner peace, and a direct experience of spiritual meaning and connection, Growing Your Inner Light is a groundbreaking, transformative journey through thirteen phases of your growth, including: developing intuition; creating sacred spaces and altars; understanding your dreams; exploring the importance of retreats, meditation, and rituals. Growing Your Inner Light gives readers the freedom to integrate from different traditions -- and develop new ones -- in order to create their own spiritual tradition. One former student of Lara's program shared that she feels "less like a spiritual tourist and more like a pilgrim." Spiritual development is a natural part of being human, and a vital way to expand the intensity of your inner light throughout your life.

A compassionate guide for transforming aging into spiritual growth • Engage with 25 key questions guiding you to mine previously untapped veins of inspiration and courage • Find a constructive role for regret and fear and embrace the freedom to become more fully yourself • Draw from both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions and the latest research in psychological and religious theory to cultivate your spiritual potential As we enter the years beyond midlife, our quest for an approach to aging takes on added urgency and becomes even more relevant in our daily lives. Empowering a new generation of seekers to view aging as a spiritual path, authors Robert Weber and Carol Orsborn reveal that it is by engaging with the difficult questions about loss, meaning, and mortality--questions we can no longer put off or ignore--that we continue to grow. In fact, the realization of our full spiritual potential comes about not by avoiding the challenges aging brings our way but by working through them. Addressing head-on how to make the transition from fears about aging into a fuller, richer appreciation of the next phase of our lives, the authors guide you through 25 key questions that can help you embrace the shadow side of aging as well as the spiritual opportunities inherent in growing older. Sharing their stories and wisdom to both teach and demonstrate what it means to feel energized about the possibilities of your later years, they explore how to find a constructive role for regret, shame, and guilt, realize your value to society, and embrace the freedom of your later years to become more fully yourself. Coming from Catholic Jesuit and Jewish backgrounds respectively, as well as drawing from the latest research in psychological and religious theory, Weber and Orsborn provide their own conversational and candid answers to the 25 key questions, supporting their insightful and compassionate guidance with anecdotes, inspirational readings, and spiritual exercises. By engaging deeply with both the shadow and light sides of aging, our spirits not only learn to cope--but also to soar.

Experience profound ways to achieve spiritual mastery in just five to ten minutes a day—whether you are a beginner or have been meditating for awhile. This Practical Guide has fourteen meditations, designed to meet numerous types of spirit guides, including angels and power animals. It teaches practical methods for interacting with guides and how to experience spiritual inner journeys with them. There are suggestions for good questions to ask of the guides that provide quality answers and insightful information. By practicing each meditation several times, it will become effortless to call on any guide “on demand.” A guide will appear instantly when spiritual help is wanted or needed. Besides learning brand new ways to communicate with spirit guides, angels and power animals that are already in one's awareness, meditations include ways to call upon guides for any project or goal, such as writing, healing, learning a new skill, and so on. Discover new spirit guides: Some of the meditations encourage guides to appear that one may never have thought about before, such as meeting with Higher Self, a money guide, a healing guide, and more! A bonus meditation: "Merge With a Power Animal" is a profound way to obtain an animal's power through the body's kinesthetic (feeling) system. One can then travel with the power animal as if seeing through its eyes. Some of the meditations include shamanic methods of healing, such as soul rescue (soul retrieval), which helps one travel into the subconscious, find a past traumatic memory and then rescue the younger self trapped within it. For those working on self-growth, abundance, creativity and/or healing, a unique meditation asks a spirit guide to lead them directly to a future self who has already become what they desire to be, or who has already achieved a goal. The future self will communicate and provide the steps necessary to achieve this goal. The future self teaches the present self how to become this new self. This meditation includes merging with the future self to achieve the feeling of mastery. Children benefit from How to Meet your Spirit Guides. Children especially respond to angels and animal guides. Numerous stories are included of how children used the meditations to communicate with their spirit guides and the profoundly amazing results. This Practical Guide Book enables parents and grandparents to teach their children and grandchildren simple, effective ways to tune into Spirit and be able to get answers to troubling questions. Children have even been able to heal past traumas and transform negative emotions. The short meditations work well for children as young as four or five. Many of the longer meditations work great for pre-teens and teens. Intuition Development: Several chapters include in-depth intuition training. Intuition is the primary tool for deciphering symbols and metaphors, whether experienced within a meditation, or a dream. The INTUITION LOCATION-FINDER exercise is included, which helps readers discover their intuitive voice, intuitive vision and intuitive feelings in a way they never knew was possible. From then on, a simple, directed eye-movement is all it takes to access one's Voice of Intuition, which allows spiritual guidance on demand, within minutes. One can achieve spiritual mastery by practicing the simple methods given in this Practical Guide.

Keys To Unlocking Your Inner Power is a refreshing and candid look at human spirituality and spiritual development. The author, Kelly Larsen RN, CMT, Reiki Master and Spiritual Teacher, explains spiritual development as the ultimate form of human development and takes the reader on a journey that spans from the formation of the human soul all the way through the various levels of enlightenment and ascension. In between Larsen explains many aspects of the spiritual development process—such as the development of the soul, mind and consciousness, karma, dreaming, the development of the energy body, and healing. She also explores the amazing manifesting ability contained within every living person and the elements we use to create our reality. The information is clear and forthright. Although learning theory is helpful, Larsen believes information about spiritual development also needs to be tangible and applicable to your every day life. With this in mind the author has interjected multiple real life examples resulting from the use of this information, as well as exercises the reader can use to begin to apply the information immediately to their own life and spiritual practice. Keys To Unlocking Your Inner Power has been described by many readers as “a must for your own spiritual reference library”. This book includes a forward written by world-renowned psychiatrist and spiritual leader, Mitchell Gibson, MD.

"'When I begin to write, I open myself and wait. And when I turn toward an inner spiritual awareness, I open myself and wait.' With that insight, Pat Schneider invites readers to contemplate their lives through spiritual observation and exploratory writing. In seventeen concise thematic chapters that include meditations on topics such as fear, prayer, forgiveness, social justice, and death, How the Light Gets In gracefully guides readers through the philosophical and spiritual questions that face everyone in the course of meeting life's challenges. Praised as a 'fuse lighter' by author Julia Cameron and 'the wisest teacher of writing I know' by the celebrated writing guru Peter Elbow, Pat Schneider has lived a life of writing and teaching, passion and compassion. With How the Light Gets In, she delves beyond the typical 'how-to's' of writing to offer an extended rumination on two inner paths, and how they can run as one. Schneider's book is distinct from the many others in the popular spirituality and creative writing genre by virtue of its approach, using one's lived experience--including the experience of writing--as a springboard for expressing the often ineffable events that define everyday life. Her belief that writing about one's own life leads to greater consciousness, satisfaction, and wisdom energizes the book and carries the reader elegantly through difficult topics. As Schneider writes, 'All of us live in relation to mystery, and becoming conscious of that relationship can be a beginning point for a spiritual practice--whether we experience mystery in nature, in ecstatic love, in the eyes of our children, our friends, the animals we love, or in more strange experiences of intuition, synchronicity, or prescience.'"--Provided by publisher.

This is a book about identity, calling, and living a life infused with meaning and purpose. Janet Conner confronts the three big questions that every thoughtful person asks: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Janet’s premises are as follows: each of us has a divine purpose, and each of us contains a divine GPS to the soul—an inner guide. And she believes it is critical that each of us connect with that inner guide in order to embrace our individual spiritual gifts and discover our true purpose. Finding your soul’s divine purpose, says Conner, is not just one thing, it is a whole package of things including gifts, talents, teachers, symbols, stories, and even shadows, wounds, and woes. Unwrapping that package is why we are here and is what enables us to live a life infused with meaning and joy. In 7 chapters, Conner leads the reader on a journey of self-discovery. She instructs readers to: Feed your divine spark. Listen to your soul’s stories. Honor your soul’s birth choice. Remember your soul’s divine purpose. Revisit, reset, and remember your past. Serve your soul’s divine purpose. Live a life you love. Conner’s writing is inclusive, wise, generous, and practical. Filled with meditations, anecdotes, and exercises, this book will appeal to a wide range of spiritual seekers looking for purpose, happiness, and love.
