Spiritual and Self Help

//Spiritual and Self Help
  • A simple yet profound process for turning problems into solutions, heartbreaks into breakthroughs and internal enemies into allies. Rather than seeing ourselves as needing to be fixed, Dr. Markova believes we can learn to relate to ourselves in a way that creates wholeness instead of fragmentation and true transformation rather than superficial change.
  • What you think and what you believe has a profound effect on what you do and how you do it. You can achieve - when you believe. If you think you can't - then you never will. But your thoughts are not set in stone, nor concrete. If you can learn how to ride a bike, read, or play chess - then you can learn to control your thinking and in doing so, control your life. Here is the how-to: how to change the way you think, setting goals, expanding your thinking and twelve principles to get you on the road to the life you deserve.
  • Have you killed any strangers lately? Try it - it can be fun! All you have to do is make a friend; because every time you make a friend you kill a stranger. Each person whose story is in this book has learnt this exciting, valuable lesson.  Many people, able-bodied and disabled, find it hard to make friends.  The book issues the challenge to the claim that normal (?) people are responsible for the non-acceptance of disabled folk in the full life of the community.  The disabled can equally be at fault. "It's a bit like the generation gap - both sides must be willing to walk some of the way across the bridge of communication." Here are REAL people willing to share their hidden scars and their joyous victories.

  • Jung died in 1961 without ever having presented a systematic summary of his psychology. For the past 30-plus years, his ideas have been explored, explained and amplified by thousands of others with varying results. This book takes the reader to the source. It was designed for those seeking an understanding of relevant terms and concepts as they were used by Jung himself. There are choice extracts from his Collected Works but no reference to other writers. It is not a critique or a defence of Jung's though but a guide to its richness and an illustration of the broad scope and inter-relationship of his interests. Overall, the Lexicon contains a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of analytical psychology.
  • DID YOU KNOW.... that in the Shetland Isles it is considered good luck to encounter a deformed or retarded person when going fishing? Or that the Ancient Hebrews believed that the ashes of a black kitten would enable one to see demons? Even the famous have their own beliefs and rituals: Luciano Pavarotti always looked for a bent nail on stage before he felt secure about singing an opera. On the luck front, Ranulf Flambard was unfortunate enough to be the first prisoner of the Tower of London - but as he was the builder and the architect of the Tower, he knew a secret way out and escaped. To ensure good luck, don't bring holly into the house before Christmas Eve and that in America it's unlucky to kill a toad, as these creatures were regarded by the indigenous Americans to be benevolent water-brings.   A book that is so much more than unlucky broken mirrors and walking under ladders.
