These holistic lectures were first presented to a variety of recovery organizations and clinicians from diverse backgrounds. The emphasis is on recovery in its fullest sense - mental, physical, psychological and spiritual. To "heal" means to make whole, in contrast to "treating," which is limited and short-sighted. The author draws from a diverse clinical background of over 50 years as a leader in the field of psychiatry. This, and his own spiritual evolution, led to a series of over eight books on the subject of human consciousness itself. Our society lives with constant stress, anxiety, fear, pain, depression, worry and addiction. This book is a dedication to the relief of human suffering in its varous expressions. To truly heal is to "make whole" on all levels.
Explores the ego's expressions and inherent limitations and gives detailed explanations and instructions on how to transcend them. It expands the understanding of the levels of consciousness as presented in the widely-acclaimed Map of Consciousness. The book focuses on the individual, and studies the experiential subjective blocks to the advancement of awareness, at each level of consciousness. This leads to progressive spiritual awareness and on to higher levels of consciousess, providing specific steps for transcending each level, preparatory to advanced states such as Enlightenment itself. By analyzing the various obstacles and levels to be transcended, certain principles that support spiritual evolution are self-revealing. This book is therefore a practical manual rather than a comprehensive analysis.

This pocket edition is designed especially for today’s spiritual student on the go, to inspire contemplation and reflection during a break at work, while hiking in the woods, during a quiet coffee-shop moment, on an airplane, with a partner—in whatever environment one finds oneself. Dissolving the Ego, Realizing the Self is a reliable companion on the aspirant’s quest toward higher truth.
Let Go, Let Miracles Happen shows how surrender is more powerful and effective than constant striving or toughing it out at all costs. These are real-life stories of people who have let go of bad relationships, miserable jobs, or addictions. There are stories from people who have thrived in the face of life-threatening illnesses, devastating personal problems, or the loss of loved ones. Each and every one of them inspires and motivates us to live a different way. Let Go, Let Miracles Happen: The Art of Spiritual Surrender leads us to spiritual surrender, a practice that we can effortlessly apply to our own lives. Trying to control the people and events in our lives is an exhausting and fruitless endeavor. Kathy Cordova shares her own story of spiritual surrender, plus those of many others, who have given up the struggle, only to find immense rewards and peace of mind. "Instead of working so hard to find or create magic in our lives, we can relax, go with the flow, work together in harmony with a greater power than ourselves, and experience more joy and purpose than we ever imagined," writes Cordova. "And the formula is simple -- love and surrender." Book jacket.
What blocks spiritual progress? And how do we transcend these blocks? The spiritual teachings of David R. Hawkins on the nature of consciousness, spirit, and ego are known worldwide by students seeking to realize spiritual Truth. As a mystic, Dr. Hawkins has infused the truths found in the precepts of Western religion with the core of Eastern philosophy, bridging the familiar, physical world to the nonlinear, spiritual domain. This collection of passages, carefully selected from Dr. Hawkins’s extensive writings, offers readers a new contemplation for each day. Any one of these passages, fully understood, can elevate one’s level of consciousness.
All human endeavors have the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience. To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: Morality, Philosophy, Psychology, and so on. Regardless of what branch of inquiry one starts from-philosophy, political theory, theology-all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consc iousness. To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed. Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious. If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself.
Finalizes and further clarifies the true nature and core of the condition termed "Enlightenment." It is primarily an instruction manual for the serious spiritual devotee, and reveals information only known by those who have transcended the ego to reach Divine Realization. This is the inner route from the self to the Self. The subjective states of the mystic are of great interest, but historically never have been clarified to the degree presented in this semi-autobiographical account that also provides the means by which to identify their rare occurrence, and thus describe the core characteristics of Spiritual Truth. Devoid of ecclesiastical doctrine or religious belief systems, the pristine essence of all spiritual Truth is revelaed in its purity with unprecedented clarity.
David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., was renowned as a physician, lecturer, and researcher of consciousness. But he’s perhaps most revered for his books, particularly the seminal Power vs. Force, which has been translated into 25 languages and sold over a million copies. Success Is for You uses many of the concepts that fans of Dr. Hawkins will recognize and applies them to the world of business and the psychology of success. Expanding upon the illuminating discussion of the attractor patterns of success from Power vs. Force, this remarkable never-before-published book pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of the successful mind. For, truly, success, according to Dr. Hawkins, is an attitude we inhabit, rather than a goal we strive for. New readers will find this to be a perfect introduction to an incredible teacher and foremost expert on mental processes, providing profound insights and real-world examples to help anyone focus on—and consequently achieve—what they desire. This fascinating book reveals: • The causality formula for success (and deconstruction of so-called failure) • How goodwill can actually turn to profit • Nine acid-test steps to determine our mode of being • How to "get to the top" (and why the destination is really our starting point) Yet its scope ranges far beyond a mere how-to manual. As Dr. Hawkins says, "Having facts and know-how . . . does not guarantee success. There are other factors involved. It is these other secret factors that we are going to explore." The secret factors—the heart-centered power principles underlying success—are decoded here . . . delivering an eternal message of possibility for us all.
This publication describes and explains advanced states of consciousness and the way to spiritual Enlightenment. It includes dialogues with spiritual students worldwide.

Truth and Reality, Dr. Hawkins states, have no secrets, and everything that exists now or in the past- even a thought- is identifiable and calibratable from the omnipresent field of Consciousness itself.

"Letting go is the bottom-line key to happiness," states Hugh Prather. And in The Little Book of Letting Go, he offers a simple 3-step process for shedding prejudices, preconceptions, and pre-judgments and facing each moment with openness and enthusiasm. Prather first explains why it is essential to learn to let go and then outlines a 30-day plan for spiritual renewal. Finally, he offers specific techniques for getting a grip on habitual reactions, the need to control, and the addiction to conflict. In this little book on mental cleansing, Prather uses personal stories as well as step-by-step exercises to help readers understand the rewards and the process of letting go. For example, in the section on letting go of guilt and hurtful actions, Prather suggests that for at least one day readers "rise from sleep and make your purpose only this: 'I will go through this day harmlessly. I will hurt no one in my thoughts or in my actions, including myself.'" Prather also includes instructions on how to let go of mental pollutants, misery, prediction and control, and spiritual specialness.
