Dr. Robin L. Smith, noted psychologist, ordained minister, motivational speaker, and best-selling author of Lies at the Altar, seemed to have the perfect life, but underneath it all, she felt empty. In this powerful new work, Dr. Robin painstakingly chronicles a time when she felt at the end of her rope, unable to truly see herself or escape the unrelenting craving in her heart. Throughout her life, she had always focused on living up to everyone else's expectations, doing everything they asked--everything they recommended--in the hopes that by pleasing others she would find fulfillment and success. Instead she found herself spiritually and emotionally starved with a hungry soul begging for change. Through vivid descriptions of the symptoms of her hunger, the gnawing emptiness in her soul, and her courageous journey to discovering herself, Dr. Robin opens a window into her own experiences in order to provide insight into yours. With clarity and empathy she starts you on a path to uncovering the real you--the you that lays beneath all the doubt, superficiality, and life crises. Dr. Robin honestly bares her soul and shares her story--plus stories of other hungry souls including her friends, clients from her psychology practice, family, and celebrities--and in the process, teaches you to recognize, survive, embrace, and conquer your own hunger. She teaches you to step into your own story so you can listen to and learn from the wisdom within.

"This groundbreaking book offers a compelling understanding of inherited trauma and fresh, powerful tools for relieving its suffering. Mark Wolynn is a wise and trustworthy guide on the journey toward healing." --Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

A groundbreaking approach to transforming traumatic legacies passed down in families over generations, by an acclaimed expert in the field

Depression. Anxiety. Chronic Pain. Phobias. Obsessive thoughts. The evidence is compelling: the roots of these difficulties may not reside in our immediate life experience or in chemical imbalances in our brains--but in the lives of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited--that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations. It Didn't Start with You builds on the work of leading experts in post-traumatic stress, including Mount Sinai School of Medicine neuroscientist Rachel Yehuda and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score. Even if the person who suffered the original trauma has died, or the story has been forgotten or silenced, memory and feelings can live on. These emotional legacies are often hidden, encoded in everything from gene expression to everyday language, and they play a far greater role in our emotional and physical health than has ever before been understood.

As a pioneer in the field of inherited family trauma, Mark Wolynn has worked with individuals and groups on a therapeutic level for over twenty years. It Didn't Start with You offers a pragmatic and prescriptive guide to his method, the Core Language Approach. Diagnostic self-inventories provide a way to uncover the fears and anxieties conveyed through everyday words, behaviors, and physical symptoms. Techniques for developing a genogram or extended family tree create a map of experiences going back through the generations. And visualization, active imagination, and direct dialogue create pathways to reconnection, integration, and reclaiming life and health. It Didn't Start With You is a transformative approach to resolving longstanding difficulties that in many cases, traditional therapy, drugs, or other interventions have not had the capacity to touch.

"The Jealousy Cure unlocks the positive power of jealousy for happy relationships."
--Foreword Reviews

"Solid counsel for those whose relationships are plagued by jealousy and the individuals it targets."
--Library Journal starred review​

Could jealousy be a positive thing? In this groundbreaking book, Robert L. Leahy--author of the hugely popular self-help guide, The Worry Cure--invites you to gain a greater understanding of your jealous feelings, keep jealousy from hijacking your life, and create healthier relationships.

We've all heard tales of the overly jealous spouse or significant other. Maybe we've even been that jealous person, though we may not want to admit it. It's hard to imagine anyone sailing through life without either having feelings of jealousy or being the target of someone's jealousy. But what if jealousy isn't just a neurotic weakness? What if it signals that your relationship matters to you? In short--what if jealousy serves a purpose?

In The Jealousy Cure, renowned psychologist Robert L. Leahy takes a more nuanced approach to tackling feelings of jealousy. In this compelling book, you'll uncover the evolutionary origins of jealousy, and how and why it's served to help us as a species. You'll also learn practices based in emotional schema theory, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and mindfulness to help you overcome the shame jealousy can bring, improve communication with your partner, and ultimately make room for jealousy while also making your relationship more meaningful. You will learn that confronting jealousy in your relationship does not have to be a catastrophe, but can redirect you and your partner to build more trust, acceptance, and connection.

We often feel jealous because we fear losing the things or people that matter to us the most. With this insightful guide, you'll discover how jealousy can both help and hurt your relationship, and learn proven-effective skills to keep jealousy in its place.

This book has been selected as an Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Book Recommendation-- an honor bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

LAW OF ATTRACTION: HOW IT WORKS

LAW OF ATTRACTION: HOW IT WORKS

$19.99
More Info

The earliest written expression of the idea now known as the law of attraction (LOA) is attributed to Hermes Trismegistus and is found in a text called the Emerald Tablet, which includes the widely quoted phrase, "as above, so below." The LOA can also be traced to Plato's law of affinity, which states, "likes tend toward like."

Until the birth of the New Thought movement in the late 1800s, prototypical ideas about the LOA circulated within occult subcultures including alchemy, Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Rosicrucianism, Kabbalism, witchcraft, and many other secret societies and mystery school traditions. Scholars have grouped all of these various ideas under the single label of Western esotericism, and there are three fundamental ways to view these esoteric, mysterious ideas:

  • They are nonsense or foolishness.
  • They are heretical or dangerous.
  • They stem from, or are based on, a single strand of truth referred to as perennial philosophy, which runs through all of the traditional religions as well as all of the various occult subcultures.
  • Today, all of the world's religions and occult subcultures remain split into various groups because the people within those groups have yet to realize the single strand of truth that unites them all is the law of attraction. The New Thought movement is essentially a process of enculturation that is removing the barriers between all of these groups by introducing a common set of language, values and rituals that everyone can share.

    Is the LOA foolishness or dangerous? Why was it kept secret for so long, and why are millions of people now spreading the LOA's gospel of health, wealth and love? There is one simple answer: It works.

    This is a book about a woman that met this man at work. He preyed on her like an animal to get what he wanted from her. He earned her trust on top of everything. She had a hard time getting away from him. Now she is away from him; it puts her into a deep clinical depression from all the trauma he put her through, along with mental abuse. Now years later, she is having a hard time getting on with her life when she always feels that he might be around the corner, waiting. She has to watch her back alone to keep herself safe in the city she lives in. He still walks the streets, finding ways to get even with her, even if it means killing her. He has come close a time or two. There are those possibilities he is up to something to get even. Like in this case, he has tried killing her in her car but failed, but he will come up with some new ways of getting back for what he thinks is her fault or reasoning for him getting into trouble, but you got to remember, he is a sociopath. In a sociopath's mind, it's everybody else's fault that they are in trouble. She has to keep an eye open all the time because he may be closer than she thinks to harming her-or even kill her to get her out of the way.

    New York Times best-selling author presents a radical alternative to psychotropic meds: discerning the meaning in your symptoms and your struggle as a way to reclaim your health and your self.

    For years, we've been telling ourselves that our difficult feelings-sadness, rage, shame, intensity, worry-are somehow not okay. And, all too often, we've relied on the promise of pharmaceuticals to tamp them down. The fact is, though, that these feelings are a vital part of our experience. They are real. And those of us who feel them most strongly are the canaries in the coalmine-sensitive to things that are seriously wrong in the world today.

    In a book that's both provocative and promising, holistic psychiatrist Kelly Brogan, M.D., author of A Mind of Your Own, shows us that we don't have to medicate our mental, emotional, and physical pain away-that the best way out is through. She explodes the mistaken belief that our symptoms-from mood changes to irritability to fogginess and fatigue-are evidence that we are sick or broken. Then she charts a new path to get real, get well, and get free. The journey includes:

    - Coming to a new appreciation of the meaning behind symptoms, and whether you are a canary in the coal mine
    - Learning the 2 major risks of medication that most doctors are not trained to disclose
    - Exploring the 5 reversible physical drivers of so-called mental illness
    - Starting the process of radical physical healing with inclusive details of Dr. Brogan's history-making 30-day protocol
    - Taking an emotional inventory of energy drains and toxic relationships
    - Taking a deeper dive into the spiritual awakening and expansion that comes when you reclaim your real self from conventional medicine
    - Identifying the most likely places you have given your power away
    - Understanding what the science has to say about psychedelics as a tool for awakening
    - Navigating health challenges with curiosity and the proper tools
    - Guidance, support, and many Travel Tips shared from the trenches!

    Our experiences, Dr. Brogan argues, aren't problems or pathologies; they reflect what we need to accept, acknowledge, and transform in order to truly become who we are. Own Your Self is a journey of healing, and also something more: a journey of coming home to ourselves.

Having built the life she thought she desired, her beloved father passed away and this triggered an awakening to reassess everything with fresh eyes.

    Jessica reflects on society's collective awakening brought about by the pandemic and her own call to freedom and move to the island of Jamaica - her father's native country - with her eight-year-old son. She encourages us all to challenge the ideologies that we hold around success and choose a new way of living that truly resonates with our soul.

    Part cultural criticism, part rueful confessional, a reformed brand strategist brings to light the impact of influence on us and our society and offers an escape in this ironically persuasive case for not being so easily influenced anymore.

    "A weirdly practical approach to some ancient questions that have become trickier lately."--Jaron Lanier, bestselling author of Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now

    We live in a world that is under the influence.

    Our lives are being choreographed by forces that want something from us. Everything from ingrained family values to mind-altering algorithms create our foundations, warp how we see the world, manipulate our decisions, and dictate our beliefs. Yet rarely do we question these everyday influences of our modern times even as we go further down the path of unwell, unhappy, and unhinged.

    A high-spirited exploration through the troublesome influences of our world, Raising Hell, Living Well, Jessica Elefante's eye-opening debut, follows one bullshit artist's journey, from small-time salesperson to award-winning corporate strategist to founder of the digital wellbeing movement Folk Rebellion, in coming to terms with how she was wielding influence--and the forces she was under herself.

    With whip-smart writing and wry humor, Elefante's collection of essays is a head-trip through her misadventures. From explaining productivity as a symptom of the influence of capitalism to how the wellness industry makes us feel more unwell or our unquestioning participation in oversharing, optimization, and instant gratification, she invites us to reexamine our world, our pasts, and ourselves through the lens of influence. Now a reformed brand strategist, Elefante lays bare her own culpability, sharing what she learned--and what she got wrong. She offers a new take on intentional living and provides a simple practice to deconstruct how the powers-that-be are attempting to modify our behaviors. Before you know it, you'll be questioning everything from how you take your coffee to how our social institutions are structured. And you'll learn how to live free from the influences around us--including Elefante herself.

    The much-needed subversive voice to demystify these times, Elefante will make you angry, make you laugh, and make you think about how you're really living. Unpretentious, sharply observed, and devil-hearted, Raising Hell, Living Well holds out a hand to help you climb out from under the influence.
