Mystical Journey: A Handbook for Modern Mystics

Modern tools for modern mystics.

Modern mystics don’t get to hide away in monasteries and ashrams or a cave in the mountains like the holy men and women of the past. In these secular times, modern mystics are ordinary people called to the mystical journey in the everyday world. Perhaps you’ve heard the call to the mystical journey but you’re not quite sure what to do next. Maybe you’re wondering what this mystical journey stuff is all about. You’re in the right place. In Mystical Journey, you’ll find a clear description of the mystical journey, inspiring insights, and a helpful set of tools for navigating your way. This is a handbook for those ready to start the mystical journey – and for those who have set out on their own.


My Life is My Responsibility: Insights for Conscious Living

Words of wisdom from a modern-day mystic in a language you can understand.

Conscious living involves being aware of what’s going on in your life and, more importantly, what’s going on in your mind. How you experience life depends on what you choose to believe. If you never take the time to examine your beliefs, or to question your assumptions, you end up living unconsciously. When you live unconsciously, you live your life according to somebody else’s beliefs. You end up trying to meet somebody else’s expectations and not your own. The insights in this book flow from a sense of being aware that you can change the world, but not in the way most of us think about doing that. Real change happens when you accept that there is only one thing that can be changed: how you choose to see things.


Beyond the Words: Reflections on I Am Affirmations

You use affirmations every day – whether you’re aware of doing it or not.

Every time you use I am statements you make an affirmation reinforcing what you believe about yourself. The meaning of the words you use in your affirmations is determined by the context of your life.

In this book, I explore what the affirmations I shared in I Am Affirmations: the Power of Words mean to me. This collection of easy-to-read reflections will expand your awareness of what your affirmations mean and encourage you to contemplate the meaning of the words you use in your I am statements.


I Am Affirmations: The Power of Words

Words are powerful.

Every time you say or think ‘I am…..’  you define or reinforce a belief about yourself. Most of the time, you do this unconsciously and mindlessly repeat a lot of negative or limiting beliefs about yourself. Often, they’re beliefs others expressed about you as you were growing up and most of them are not true. They’re opinions, and dated opinions at that. In this collection of 81 I am affirmations, I introduce you to a practice for using the power of words to reprogram or reinforce your beliefs about yourself. Stop repeating things mindlessly and start using the power of words with purpose to create affirmations about who you want to be.


A Question of Perspective: Insights from a Crime Writing Mystic

The way you look at life is a question of perspective.

So, if the way you’re looking at life could use a bit of a shake-up, these thought-provoking articles and illustrations might be just the thing to get you started.

Remember, if you keep thinking about life the same way – it stays the same.


Sharing the Journey: Reflections of a Reluctant Mystic

You are on a journey. The nature or purpose of that journey comes down to what you choose or refuse to believe.

If you’re at that point in life where you’re noticing things are not working out the way you thought they would, and you’re questioning the beliefs underpinning it all, you’ll find some refreshing insights in this book of reflections. In Sharing the Journey, I invite you to reconsider the journey you think you’re on and let you know you are not alone. If you’re not ready to examine your beliefs and push the boundaries of your mental comfort zone, this is not the book for you. If you are ready to take a look at your beliefs and start living consciously, you’ve found a friend for the journey.
