    One of six children, Shirley Yanez was born and raised in poverty on a council estate in Leicester in the 1950s. She received no formal education, and would later discover that she was dyslexic.

    Living the Dream

    Living the Dream

    Living the Dream is not another book about accumulating great material wealth and living a luxurious life by using knowledge of the fundamental law of attraction (simply put, you attract what you focus on). This book is written to awaken you to the fact that you’re dreaming now. Yes, you. Your life is a dream, an illusion in your mind, streaming across consciousness on autopilot without the power of individual direction from your point of observation. The pilot is asleep. Living the Dream is about finding your true being within the dream and deliberately, with knowledge and understanding, taking charge of and directing this mental process we call life. In formal education we were told early on that life is a dream. At that time we didn't have the faculties of consciousness to fully understand how true those words are. But, it's a new day! We're entering an age of great light and mass adoption of truth that has escaped us in times past.

    Inspirational Books to Add to Your Collection

    Inspirational Books to Add to Your Collection

    I am an incredible fan of the written word. Since a child, I would indulge in different worlds through the covers of some of my favorite books. I would lock myself in my room until finished; sometimes going an entire day without food or sleep. While I cannot devote as much time to reading as when I was a kid, I still love adding to my reading list each month. While I don't discriminate, I do go through phases of what type of books I like reading.

    The 10 Best Motivational Books for Students

    The 10 Best Motivational Books for Students

    "The difference between try and triumph is a little umph." But sometimes, that last bit of motivation can be hard to come by. Furthermore, once you find that drive, it can be difficult to figure out how to stay motivated. Navigating the academic waters of college can be tricky. You’re in this weird kind of limbo where you are still a student, but also an adult, and now have to carry the responsibilities of both. You’re going to learn a lot about yourself, life, and others in the next few years, but sometimes you may feel just a tiny bit stressed. You may want some advice about different things along the way. That is how this list has come to be. I have gathered some of the best motivational books for students out there, each with a specific area in mind, to help guide you through whatever new problem school or life may be throwing your way.

    Does the Law of Attraction Actually Exist?

    Does the Law of Attraction Actually Exist?

    My uninformed impression of the law of attraction was that what you put out into the world is what you get back. On the surface this seems like it could be appealing, and support the notion that the world is a fair place.

    'Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything'

    'Women Food and God: An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything'

    I first came across Geneen Roth's eating guidelines in my late teens. It was an excerpt from an interview with Oprah Winfrey which included a list of her seven principles. The notion of eating intuitively instantly resonated with me, although it was the opposite of what I knew dieting to be. Initially I felt conflicted and struggled to let go of my restrictive dieting beliefs, but eventually I was convinced it was the only sane path.

    'Ami: Child of the Stars'

    'Ami: Child of the Stars'

    I was told about Ami: Child of the Stars by Enrique Barrios, during a chance conversation with someone. It woke me up to a world of wonder and infinite possibilities. I recall lighting up when first reading it as its message resonated so deeply with me. The emblem on Ami’s chest encapsulates this message, a heart with wings which “represents unconditional love; a winged love that goes beyond all attachments and borders.” The author communicates the language of love with such simplicity and speaks to people of all ages particularly those interested in a shift towards a new planetary consciousness.

    Best Self-Help Books for Alcoholics

    Best Self-Help Books for Alcoholics

    According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), 8.4% of adult men and 4.2% of adult women in the United States suffer from an alcohol abuse disorder—over 9 million men and over 5 million women. Many people with alcohol dependencies and addictions don't even realize it, while others are aware of the signs that they're drinking too much alcohol, but do not change it, whether out of a belief that they can't, or a lack of commitment to the kinds of steps one needs to take to recover.
