The Law of Attraction Simplified: 7 Tested and Proven Steps for Manifesting Abundance

Before you dive into this guide, please note that this 7-step process I am about to share with you is a simplified version of the exact process I have personally used to overcome a lifetime of struggle and go on to live some of my wildest dreams. This is not a process based on "theory" or something I read in a book. This is a process that I have personally tested and found to be effective in my own life. I've used this process to overcome financial limitations, to travel the world, to meet the woman of my dreams, to find true inner peace, and much more. I am only speaking from experience. If you don't apply what I teach you here today, then you will not obtain the "proof" you need in order to increase your faith in the process (faith is a crucial element for manifesting). This guide explains a process but does not "prove" anything. Ultimately, the only way for you to prove the truth of what I say is for you to go out and test it for yourself!

Let's begin!

His Holiness The Dalai Lama: A Message of Spiritual Wisdom

"I always consider myself as a simple Buddhist monk. I feel that is the real me. I feel that the Dalai Lama as a temporal ruler is a man-made institution. As long as the people accept the Dalai Lama, they will accept me. But being a monk is something which belongs to me. No one can change that." --His Holiness the Dalai Lama

In October 2012, the Dalai Lama visited the Kurukulla Center for Buddhist Studies in Medford, Massachusetts and addressed approximately 1,800 residents from this diverse New England community.

To commemorate the one-year anniversary of his Holiness' visit, Comcast NBCUniversal presents His Holiness The Dalai Lama: A Message of Spiritual Wisdom to inform readers about the impact he has around the world.



The Dalai Lama is a well-known figure, with millions of followers through social media channels, and within all parts of the globe. Yet his history, background, and the scope of his accomplishments often go unnoticed.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama: A Message of Spiritual Wisdom explains how the religious leader was first chosen in 1937 and provides an overview of his political and cultural history. It also celebrates the way he brings communities together through a message of peace and nonviolence.

Included are excerpts from the Dalai Lama's address to attendees of the Kurukulla Center, discussion questions, a glossary of terms, and select resources.



In addition, the book also features an introduction by Ann Curry of NBC News, as well as her exclusive interview with the Dalai Lama on Today.

Radical Compassion: Shambhala Publications Authors on the Path of Boundless Love

What is compassion? Much more than just being nice, compassion is about looking deeply at ourselves and others and recognizing the fundamental goodness we all share. It's about opening up to the vulnerable space inside every one of us and letting our barriers down. And it's about daring to be present to ourselves and others with genuine love and kindness. Empowering personal awakening and social change, it might be the most radical and transformative thing we can do.

The cultivation of compassion has long been at the core of Naropa University's mission, since its origins in 1974--and its students and faculty have been leaders in contemplative education with heart. In celebration of Naropa's fortieth anniversary, Shambhala Publications is pleased to offer these teachings on the path of compassion from a collection of authors who have helped shape the school's unique and innovative identity, including:

o Chogyam Trungpa on opening ourselves more and more to love the whole of humanity

o Dzogchen Ponlop on how to cultivate altruism with the help of a spiritual mentor

o Judith L. Lief on the common obstacles to compassion and how to overcome them

o Gaylon Ferguson on awakening human-heartedness in oneself and society amidst everyday life

o Diane Musho Hamilton on connecting to natural empathy and taking a compassionate approach to conflict resolution

o Reginald A. Ray on spiritual practices for developing the enlightened mind and heart in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition

o Ringu Tulku on the practices of bodhisattvas, those who devote themselves to the path of enlightenment for the sake of all beings

o Pema Chodron on building up loving-kindness for oneself and others with help from traditional Buddhist slogans

o Ken Wilber on what it really means to be a support person, with reflections from his own life

o Karen Kissel Wegela on avoiding caregiver's burnout and staying centered amidst our efforts to help those in need

o and reflections on Naropa University and the meaning of radical compassion from longstanding faculty member Judith Simmer-Brown

An Introduction to Angels

Doreen pays attention to the everyday fears that surround every individual remarking that in order to have a fulfilled communication with an angel you must be willing to look your fear in the eye and say, "Bring it." Living in the ego and not trusting your gut feelings and interactions is what Doreen considers to be a fool proof way of limiting what the angels have to say. Her method of interviewing your feelings is in large part the counter to asking the angels to provide signs and symbols (from signs to knowing you are not alone, to reoccurring number symbolism) and can only ever be done by acknowledging and accepting your feelings for what they are.

What Happens After Death?

Is death the end of human existence and consciousness, or do we continue in some other place or state of being? Do we go to a place of everlasting reward or eternal torment? Are we destined to be reincarnated, coming to life again in a different body in a seemingly endless cycle of living and dying? Will we ever see deceased loved ones again?

Is there somewhere you can go to find the answers to these questions? The Bible tells us exactly what happens after death.

It tells us what happens to those who have done right (will they go to heaven?) and wrong (or be tormented in an ever-burning hell?) and reveals the fate of the billions of people who have never known God and His way of life. Most churches claim to teach what the Bible says--but what does it really reveal?

You need to discover the answers yourself inside this Bible Study aid, What Happens After Death?. You'll be shocked when you find out what the Bible really teaches!

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"...those who have died are unconscious, as if they are sleeping a dreamless sleep, awaiting their time to be called out of the grave and resurrected to a new life."

"Many people, however, believe in a perpetual, ever-burning hellfire or a condition of spiritual torment in which evil people are tortured throughout eternity. But the Bible's simple teaching conveys nothing like this."

"Understanding the meaning of life, death and what follows this physical life can give priceless comfort and hope in the face of death. It should also have a great impact on the kind of person you are, motivating you to live carefully and make wise choices."

Confucius: A Smile from Eternity

"When Tsze sat himself down upon a big rock, he said to the Earth:

'Why is it that you are always so hard to manage?'

And the Earth said to Tsze:

'Because the Great One created me so that you might learn your lessons.'"

Confucius is the Latin name of the great Chinese philosopher Chung-Fu-Tsze. As the Chinese empire was crumbling, Confucius used his erudition and great wisdom to establish order amidst the political and social chaos.

He believed in the integrity of law and tradition, and that inner knowledge had to be activated so that virtue, order, and harmony could be suffused into society. For centuries his philosophy has been the foundation of Chinese society.

His wisdom is reflected in this series of channelled quotes that capture the humour, profundity, and exquisite simplicity of existence.

"The greatest lessons are learned in the stillness of one's own self."

Wisdom Quotes Illustrated.: Awareness, Insight, and Growth

"Everything about his book comes across as a giant lift for the body, mind, and soul!"

What's on your mind?

For many of us, everything seems to fall into place. We feel strong and confident--at least most of the time. And then there are days or even weeks that demand everything we've got, and more. Friends tell us to "stay positive," but wouldn't a little encouragement go further than clever advice?

The Wisdom Quotes Illustrated series takes a fresh approach.

Take a quick look at the first picture. It shows a young woman from a tough nomadic society. Her face sends an unmistakable message: I believe in myself. The images in this series are strong, colorful, and direct. They back up the quotes with no room for misunderstanding.

Here are some of the topics . . .

Obsessing over what other people will think; believing that our differences make us better or worse than someone else; coping with defeat (it's not the end of the line!); weathering the storms of life; and ruminating about the past.

So what's in it for the reader?

Sometimes it's crucial to focus all of our attention on achieving our objectives and reaching a destination. At others, it helps to step back and take a broader view. We tend to overlook that life is a journey to be enjoyed in itself, as we travel. The Wisdom Quotes Illustrated series takes readers a step in that direction.

The Power of Prayer (Channeling Brain Waves Through Dhikr)

"Prayer is the weapon of a believer." - Muhammad (saw) Prayer is the act of actualizing one's wants through the divine powers present within. There is of course a scientific explanation to this act. Essentially prayer is 'guided brain waves.' Just as the dimension of knowledge transforms into energy and the quantum field to form the universe, the wants and desires of consciousness emanate from the dimension of knowledge to reveal themselves as the wants and desires of man and become actualized through the densification of guided brain waves. Due to this, the stronger the concentration level, the faster the response will be to the prayer. "And he who turns away from My dhikr (the absolute reality of which I have reminded him), indeed, he will have a restricted life (limited by the conditions of his body and mind), and We will resurrect him as blind in the period of Doomsday." Quran 20:124 Since only a very small percentage of the brain is employed while a large part of brain capacity remains unused, dhikr allows the activation of this larger percentage. The bio-electrical energy produced in specific regions in the brain via dhikr spreads to other regions and activates the dormant cells thereby increasing brain activity. Whatever the dhikr is about, the frequency corresponding to that meaning is emanated to the cells and thus brain capacity relevant to that particular meaning is increased.

Living From The Heart

I AM the Soul's Heartbeat Volume 1: The Seven I AM Sayings in the Gospel of St John

This is an esoteric exploration of the meaning behind the words Jesus spoke at intervals and recorded by St John in his Gospel: I am the Bread of Life, I am the Light of the World, I am the Door of the Sheep, I am the Good Shepherd, I am the Resurrection and the Life, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and I am the True Vine. This work examines the actual Greek words which reveal quite different interpretations. In the Greek, the words ego eimi mean I AM and this I AM is the Higher Self, an important part of the human psyche. Our task is to integrate the I AM into our soul to give our soul its rightful heartbeat. Much of the turmoil in the world today stems from this process of disconnecting from the old group consciousness and assuming the individuality of the I AM. This short book gives many clues and exercises to enable anyone to integrate the I AM into our consciousness.

Spiritual Shakespeares (Accents on Shakespeare)

"Spiritual Shakespeares" is the first book to explore the scope for reading Shakespeare spiritually in the light of contemporary theory and current world events. Ewan Fernie has brought together an exciting cast of critics in order to respond to the 'religious turn' in recent literary theory and to the spiritualized politics of terrorism and the 'War on Terror'. Exploring a genuinely new perspective within Shakespeare Studies, the volume suggests that experiencing the spiritual intensities of the plays could lead us back to dramatic intensity as such. It tests spirituality from a political perspective, as well as subjecting politics to an unusual spiritual critique. Amongst its controversial and provocative arguments is the idea that a consideration of spirituality might point the way forward for materialist criticism. Reaching across and beyond literary studies to offer challenging and powerful contributions from leading names, including Philippa Berry, John D. Caputo, Jonathan Dollimore, Lisa Freinkel and Richard Kearney, this book offers unique readings of some very familiar plays.
