Description : How much does our perception of God really matter? Many of us aren't conscious of our image of a "higher power." For some of us, that unspoken image is a Judgmental Parent or an exacting Old Man in the Sky. For others, God is an Imaginary Friend who is there to fix problems after we create them. David Aaron can help you discover a mature, new understanding of God and lead you to discover the wellspring of Divinity within you. By drawing on teachings of Kabbalah that were secret for millennia, he helps you to reclaim the power you've given away to negative images of God or passive images of yourself. These mystical secrets of Judaism can offer reassuring guidance, meaning, and purpose to the lives of people of all faiths. In the journey to discovering God's secret life you will: * Awaken to your life's deepest purpose * Delight in a deeper connection to your true inner self, God, and others * Learn to experience God's infinite love for you * Rise to new heights, cope with challenges, and make courageous choices * Achieve true peace of mind and freedom from anxiety Aaron shares these profound ancient teachings in simple, everyday language with a touch of wit and humor. Rich in personal stories and anecdotes, his examples from daily life help us tap the transformational power hidden within and illuminate the surprising paradoxes of spiritual growth. Awakened to finally experience a personal connection to God, we are at last able to receive God's love unconditionally and discover our ultimate identity, divine purpose, and true happiness.

Description : God's journey starts by laying a conceptual foundation of creation and then discusses the steps it has taken in its evolution. There is only one fundamental pattern creation finds a way of getting its parts to work together to create something that is more capable of observing and acting within creation, ideally in a sustainable way. Good examples of this are the trillions of cells that work together to create a human being and humans who work together to create schools, businesses, governments, and economies. Humans, like other parts of creation, can express this fundamental pattern to varying degrees of effectiveness. Sometimes we work together to create something that contributes to the evolution of creation really well, sometimes not so well, and sometimes it takes away from it. Learning to optimize our potential to contribute to our personal and collective evolution is the focus of this book. I will discuss a progressive approach for enhancing our personal health and performance to enjoy and use as a foundation for enhancing our collective health and performance (evolution). Enlightenment is the most important process for both our personal and collective evolution. The more aware we are, the easier it is to make good decisions on how to act. Academic pursuits are very important in this, but so is developing our psychic abilities, such as intuition. There is much more to this reality than meets the eyes, as you can learn within this book and much more.
Description : In this Christian alternative to the phenomenal bestseller The Secret, acclaimed author dr. Henry Cloud helps readers discover truths that make life work and show how faith can guide them in achieving their goals—now available in paperback! The Bible claims that God has provided special truths that can change lives and uplift the spirit, but often those truths lie dormant and untapped within the soul. Offering a positive alternative to The Secret based on biblical scripture, Dr. Henry Cloud reveals that there is indeed a power of attraction ruling the universe—the attraction between God and his creation—and demonstrates how that power can shape our lives. With step-by-step practical instructions, this book teaches readers from all walks of life how to apply spiritual truths to real life. Even Christians who think they understand biblical truths often don’t know how to use them. Chapters on happiness, relationships, purpose, and God, share secrets like, “you attract to yourself relationships that fit you,” “whatever you put to use will grow,” and “there is no such thing as disconnected and happy.” The Secret Things of God reveals profoundly simple secrets and gently guides readers toward unlocking the power of these truths in everyday life.
Description : YOU CAN GROW IN WORDS OF KNOWLEDGE! Paul encourages believers in 1 Corinthians 14:1 to follow after love and to eagerly desire the gifts especially prophecy.

Words of knowledge are one aspect of the prophetic gifts that we can develop just like any other spiritual gift. Shawn Bolz has been demonstrating a profound prophetic ability to share God's heart with people and know specific information about their birth, anniversaries, specific dates that mean a lot to them, personal information that no one else knows, family nicknames, pet names, and more. All of these details help people get a sense that God cares intimately about their real life and wants to engage them with deep relationship now. Learn to hear God in a way that impacts peoples lives around you the way Jesus did!
