"We have so many thoughts, ideas and myths about relationships that often have nothing to do with reality," said Tim Ray, author of "101 Relationship Myths: How to Stop Them from Sabotaging Your Happiness." "These ideas are ingrained into us - from magazines to television shows or pop songs.
Review by Allyson Gracie, Wellness Specialist Retailing Insight
Edgy journalist, blogger, and couples counselor Tim Ray keeps it real with his direct approach to love and happiness in his confrontational new book 101 Relationship Myths. Ray's book opens up gently blasting women's magazines, many of which are responsible for providing dubious relationship advice to its (female) readers. He picks apart a passage of an article with "Is this true?" or "Why...?" And, speaking of readers, while Ray's book is outwardly marketed to appeal equally to both men and women, it likely will be read primarily by females obsessed with love and happiness (as expressed in the chapter "Why is it mainly women who are interested in self-help?").
Adela's premise is that the capacity to birth gently is within you.
A chapter titled Clearing the Past looks at the importance of processing your own birth experience if it was a negative one, grieving for any miscarriages and ensuring that you are well in mind as well as body. Issues are touched on that other writers do not go near such as a few paragraphs encouraging couples to think about what action they might take if they are given bad test or scan results.
I have always been very interested in astrology. The trouble is, even after taking two courses in astrology, I still didn't have the slightest idea of how to approach it, so I generally have to rely on a friend of mine, who is an astrologer, to answer my questions.
Then I received a copy of the Astrology Reading Cards...
I'm a keen gardener and had caught a little of an interview, I'm sure it was on Gardener's World, with a down to earth experienced gardener that swore by gardening by the moon and had done for years. It caught my attention and ever since I had been looking for advice on how to do this. This little book is a treasure and provides all the information I need in an easy straightforward manner.
Despite what certain religious leaders say about homosexuality, should gay folks be more open to living a spiritual life? To a loving Higher Power, or God, in their lives? Gay Conversations with God author James Langteaux says it may be a good idea.
I'm Natalie Fee. I'm pretty sure I'm the one in the photo on the back cover of my book, The Everyday Alchemist's Happiness Handbook. But I can't be certain, as I don't feel like her anymore. You see, the thing with being on a journey of self-discovery, or so I've found, is that who I was last year is different from who I am today. And, given that I began writing the book four years ago, it seems strange, bemusing even, to claim that I am the author! Happily, who I am today loves the book. I've read it numerous times and each time it offers me fresh perspective, resolve and inspiration. I do not claim to have embodied all the wisdom, techniques and insight that are held in its pages either. Rather, I see myself as a writer who brought these ideas and inspiration into physical form, as they are precisely the words I need to read myself. No doubt at least once a year for the rest of my life!
