An inspirational book about life and its lessons from the Golden Globe and Emmy nominated star of NBC’s This Is Us.
When This Is Us debuted in fall 2016, a divided America embraced a show that celebrates human connection. The critically acclaimed series became America’s most watched—and most talked about—network show, even building on its fan base in the drama’s second season. As Kate Pearson, Chrissy Metz presents a character that has never been seen on television, yet viewers see themselves in her, no matter what they look like or where they come from. Considered a role model just for being her authentic self, Chrissy found herself on magazine covers and talk shows, walking red carpets, and as the subject of endless conversations on social media “I don’t know what you’ve been through to play her,” she is often told by fans, “but it was something.”
In This is Me, Chrissy Metz shares her story with a raw honesty that will leave readers both surprised but also inspired. Infused with the same authenticity she brings to her starring role, Chrissy’s This is Me is so much more than your standard Hollywood memoir or collection of personal essays. She embraces the spirit of Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes, and shares how she has applied the lessons she learned from both setbacks and successes. A born entertainer, Chrissy finds light in even her darkest moments, and leaves the reader feeling they are spending time with a friend who gets it.
Chrissy Metz grew up in a large family, one that always seemed to be moving, and growing. Her father disappeared one day, leaving her mother to work a series of menial jobs and his children to learn to live with the threat of hunger and the electricity being cut off. When her mother remarried, Chrissy hoped for “normal” but instead experienced a form of mental pain that seemed crafted just for her. The boys who showed her attention did so with strings attached as well, and Chrissy accepted it, because for her, love always came with conditions.
When she set out for Los Angeles, it was the first time she had been away from her family and from Florida. And for years, she got barely an audition. So how does a woman with the deck stacked against her radiate such love, beauty and joy? This too is at the heart of This is Me.
With chapters that alternate from autobiographical to instructional, Chrissy offers practical applications of her hard-won insights in a series of “Bee Mindful” interstitials. There she invites you to embrace gratitude in “Say Thank You” or to be honest with your partner and yourself in “The Shrouded Supreme.” Blending love and experience, Chrissy encourages us all to claim our rightful place in a world that may be trying to knock us down, find our own unique gifts, and pursue our dreams.
The authors spent time finding out how South African women respond to this phenomenon referred to as 'over 40'. The result is a title that a woman would give to herself, to a friend or to a daughter going through this 'big' transition period that involves psychological and physiological change that brings about much contemplation. 'Fabulously 40 and beyond' is written primarily from an extensive base of questionnaires as well as from feedback from media work during the book's development. The authors then synthesised and wrote this title from an extensive base of questionnaires and from feedback from media work to bring on important themes including identity, spirituality, body, family and other animals, leisure (and pleasure). At the centre is a certain power that women come into as they move into their 40's and beyond which is a clear measure of where women in their 40s are at. Clearly, the title demonstrates that these women have humour, lightness, know how much they own, and do juggle things to get things in life to go the way they want. The book offers practical advice as well as relevant statistics. During the research phase 'Fabulously 40 and beyond' saw much media interest including a feature on SAFM Otherwise, in Femina magazine and on Radio 702. This is no doubt a much-needed book that fills a gap dealing with this often difficult or traumatic stage in women's lives.
The author has created a unique path to understanding the third dimension of life.
Acknowledging the role of religion in life, he says that one does not have to be religious in order to find spirituality or the third dimension.
Through the conditioning of our upbringing, religious beliefs may even be a stumbling block to finding ones true self, free of pre-conditioning or opinions.
Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships - or, as they would say, because of them - they are two of the most joyful people on the planet. In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create this book as a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?
They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our times and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.
This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final goodbye.
In hierdie boek deel ek my eie pad wat ek met die Doodsengel gestap het en hoe my pa se afsterwe my lewe dramaties verander het. Nianell en Riana Scheepers is maar ’n paar mense wat ook hul eie ervaringe met afgestorwe siele kom deel. Sekerlik die belangrikste deel van die boek is om ons vrese vir die dood aan te spreek en die konsep vir onsself te herdefinieer, sodat ons ook nie ons eie afsterwe sal vrees nie. Ek kyk na die potensiaal wat ontstaan om te groei en te ontluik in die unieke jy, wanneer die dood jou lewe kom omvergooi.
In this inspirational work, beloved best-selling author Dr. Wayne W. Dyer shows you how to restore balance in your life by offering nine principles for realigning your thoughts so that they correspond to your highest desires. Imagine a balance scale with one end weighted down to the ground, and the other end featuring the objects of your desires sticking up precariously in the air. This scale is a measurement of your thoughts. To restore the same balance that characterizes everything in our universe, you have to take up the weighty thoughts so that they match up to your desires. The seasons reflect the overall harmony of life. For example, winter passes and the blossoms emerge. This is balanced by a need to have the trees rest, so autumn arrives on time and helps the trees ready themselves for another period of repose. This book is dedicated to the idea that we re a vital component of this creative process and have within ourselves the wherewithal to create all that we want if we recognize and revise out-of-balance thoughts."
A first-person account of Jim Tucker's experiences with a number of extraordinary children with memories of past lives, Return To Life focuses mostly on American cases, presenting each family's story and describing his investigation. His goal is to determine what happened - what the child has said, how the parents have reacted, whether the child's statements match the life of a particular deceased person, and whether the child could have learned such information through normal means.
Tucker has found cases that provide persuasive evidence that some children do, in fact, possess memories of previous lives. Among others, readers will meet a boy who describes a previous life on a small island. When Tucker takes him to that island, he finds that some details eerily match the boy's statements and some do not. Another boy points to a photograph from the 1930s and says he used to be one of the men in it. Once the laborious efforts to identify that man are successful, many of the child's numerous memories are found to match the details of his life. Soon after his second birthday, a third boy begins expressing memories of being a World War II pilot who is eventually identified.
We experience our environment in a unique way through our senses. Some people thrive in a busy environment with lots going on and many people involved. They like everything brighter, louder, hotter, faster and find these inputs enjoyable and stimulating. Others avoid a crowded, noisy environment and will escape to ordered tranquillity whenever they can. They prefer everything softer, milder, slower and quickly feel overwhelmed and irritated by too much fuss and flutter. Sensory intelligence explains in clear layman's terms how this works to help you understand why you and others respond to sensory input the way you do. It then tells you how to modulate your senses to adapt to your environment and other people, or change your environment to fit your sensory preferences. It will help you to function more effectively and give you greater understanding and adaptability within your relationships, both at home and at work.

After a sell-out two-print run, The Energy Code has been rereleased as BREATHE: Strategising Energy in the Age of Burnout. Now more than ever, humans are facing a global personal and collective energy crisis. Being too busy and exhausted has become a shared narrative of modern living. Energy is not just an expression of our physical health, but also of our mental and emotional functioning. The nature of digitally based modern lives means that our natural energy sources are under constant demand, leading us to often feel washed out, depressed and depleted. The skill we now require is no longer balance, but rather integration. BREATHE: Strategising Energy in the Age of Burnout provides practical and accessible tools. It teaches the reader to move through the intensity of life without getting caught up in the chaos of it. BREATHE brings awareness to the basic laws and principles of energy by weaving together the science of western medicine, neuroscience, and eastern philosophy. It is the crystallisation of Dr Ela Manga’s experience and insights gained in the cutting-edge science of mindfulness-based energy management. It is relevant for anyone who faces the challenge of supporting health and meaningful relationships while pursuing their passion and vocation.
'A dazzling book ... meet the new Stephen Hawking' Sunday Times The bestselling author of Seven Brief Lessons on Physics takes us on an enchanting, consoling journey to discover the meaning of time 'We are time. We are this space, this clearing opened by the traces of memory inside the connections between our neurons. We are memory. We are nostalgia. We are longing for a future that will not come.' Time is a mystery that does not cease to puzzle us. Philosophers, artists and poets have long explored its meaning while scientists have found that its structure is different from the simple intuition we have of it. From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations. Time flows at a different speed in different places, the past and the future differ far less than we might think, and the very notion of the present evaporates in the vast universe. With his extraordinary charm and sense of wonder, bringing together science, philosophy and art, Carlo Rovelli unravels this mystery. Enlightening and consoling, The Order of Time shows that to understand ourselves we need to reflect on time -- and to understand time we need to reflect on ourselves.

If you want to understand meditation more deeply and how you can harness the benefits in the most profound ways possible, The Effortless Mind is where it's at. I will be giving this important book to everyone I know.' Jasmine Hemsley, author of The Art of Eating Well `Will makes meditation cool. Say hello to a clearer mind thanks to your new bulletproof technique to help you relax and unleash your best self.' Madeleine Shaw, author of Get The Glow Daily life can feel like a fast-paced treadmill, leaving little time to unwind, re-charge and do what brings us joy. Meditation is a powerful way to hit the pause button, increase your energy and start to enjoy life more. The Effortless Mind is renowned meditation teacher Will Williams's must-have guide for modern-day meditators. Suffering from chronic stress and insomnia, Will undertook years of research and training with leading experts from around the world, which led him to find the cure he was looking for in Vedic meditation. In The Effortless Mind, Will explains how his Vedic-inspired method of meditation has transformed the lives of his students - all of whom are busy people of all ages and all backgrounds. Their inspiring stories and the scientific research into meditation show the profound physical, mental and emotional benefits you can gain from such a simple daily practice, including more energy, better sleep, greater clarity, less anxiety and a happier outlook on life. More praise for The Effortless Mind: `Meditation can be a powerful tool in managing anxiety, stress and other common daily experiences that so many people seem to face and Vedic meditation with Will is one of the simplest forms of meditation there is, making it incredibly accessible for anyone to learn.' Annie Clarke, author of Mind Body Bowl `I learnt how to meditate with Will Williams two years ago and since then so many things have changed. I have a life-long tool that has brought me calm, clarity and increased creativity and allowed me to far more effectively weather the storms of everyday life. Will is the most generous, warm and gracious teacher.' Emine Rushton, Wellbeing Director, Psychologies `Within a few months of learning to meditate with Will, I realised I was starting to have so many ideas for songs and books, as well as helping me with a busy schedule of touring and being a dad.' Howard Donald, Take That `Vedic meditation is now part of my daily routine. It has been hugely beneficial in so many ways. Will is very supportive and nurturing and makes learning seem easy and fun. I feel extremely grateful this has come into my life.'

'Engaging and inspiring, Sharon Blackie's beautiful book will empower people to find wonder in everyday life.' Clover Stroud A book of natural wonders, practical guidance and life-changing empowerment. 'To live an enchanted life is to pick up the pieces of our bruised and battered psyches, and to offer them the nourishment they long for. It is to be challenged, to be awakened, to be gripped and shaken to the core by the extraordinary which lies at the heart of the ordinary. Above all, to live an enchanted life is to fall in love with the world all over again.' The enchanted life has nothing to do with fantasy or escapism or magical thinking: it is founded on a vivid sense of belongingness to a rich and many-layered world. It is creative, intuitive, imaginative. It thrives on work that has heart and meaning. It loves wild things, but returns to an enchanted home and garden. It respects the instinctive knowledge and playfulness of children, and relishes story, poetry and art. Taking the inspiration and wisdom that can be derived from myth, fairy tales and folk culture, this book offers a set of practical and grounded tools for enchanting our lives and the places we live in, giving us a greater sense of meaning and of belonging to the world. An inspiring, beautifully written call to re-engage with the world - giving us the tools for profound and whole-hearted participation in the adventure of life. 'I believe that enchantment is an attitude of mind which can be cultivated, a way of approaching the world which anyone can learn to adopt: the enchanted life is possible for everybody.'

In it is a striking invitation to every reader to help awaken the species on earth, as well as startling revelations that will expand humanity's view of our personal and collective future.

Is there a new role humans are being invited to play to advance their evolution by joining together to help the planet in these critical times? The answer to both questions, he was told, is yes, and, by adopting even a handful of the unique ways that Highly Evolved Beings respond to life, the human race has the opportunity to set the course of world history on an infinitely better path.
