Der Grund, warum wir unser Herz so oft verschließen, liegt darin, dass wir nicht wirklich offen für uns selbst sind. Große Teile von uns selbst sind uns so unwillkommen, dass wir jedes Mal davonlaufen, wenn sie auftauchen. Und so schaffen wir es nie, wirklich voll und ganz anwesend zu sein. Dich nur wenn wir bereit sind, voll und ganz zu uns selbst zu stehen und uns selbst niemals im Stich lassen, sind wir in der Lage, auch anderen Menschen beizustehen und ihnen unsere Hilfe mit einem offenen Herzen anzubieten.

Growing up is an ongoing, challenging, exciting and satisfying journey. In this book, Wendy Freebourne takes you through that journey, step by step, giving you the tools you need to navigate it successfully. She shows you how responsibility, chosen carefully and taken on willingly, brings freedom and fulfilment; and how, although your physical abilities change as you get older, this does not mean that illness and infirmity are necessary results of aging. This book is written in an insightful, practical but gentle and compassionate, spiritual style. It gives a holistic overview, while also paying attention to practicality and detail. You will find realistic advice for moving into a maturity that is not painful or burdensome, but joyful, if also less predictable than you were brought up to believe it would be. It gives models for growing up in the twenty-first century. '. . . elucidations of how and why we function within a sometimes highly dysfunctional world and how we can do that more effectively have led me to revelations, research and new training opportunities.'

Facts that you can find out for your self to what is real and what is false, what is true and what is a lie, and much more...

Die kernboodskap van die boek word weerspieël in dié Skrifgedeelte:- “Moenie vir julle skatte bymekaar maak op die aarde, waar mot en roes verniel en waar diewe inbreek en steel nie; maar maak vir julle skatte bymekaar in die hemel, waar geen mot of roes verniel nie en waar diewe nie inbreek en steel nie; want waar julle skat is, daar sal julle hart ook wees.” Mattheus 6:19-2. Sharon deel haar geestelike pêrels sodat jy ook jou skatte in hemelse plekke kan vermeerder, maar alles begin by die hemelse afspraak met Jesus, waarop net jy persoonlik ‘n RSVP kan gee:- Jesus sê vir jou: “Kyk, Ek staan by die deur en Ek klop. As iemand My stem hoor en die deur oopmaak, sal Ek ingaan na hom toe en saam met hom maaltyd hou en hy met My.” Die grootste uitnodiging van alle tye, volg wanneer Jesus jou nooi om by Hom goud, wit klere en oogsalf te koop. As Jesus dan die heelal se rykdomme besit – waarmee koop ek by Hom? Kom ontdek hierdie geestelike lewenswaarhede en stap tree vir tree die ewige weg van liefde, genade en heiligmaking, terwyl jy jou geestelike pêrels versamel.

More than a New Year's resolution, or short term goal for an upcoming vacation or wedding, fitness is a lifestyle. And dieting is a national phenomenon! At one time or another, we all have "dieted", perhaps trying one of the fad diets of the day. Billions of dollars are spent every year in an effort to lose weight, yet the only thing getting lighter is our wallet. Over time, we have become convinced that the failure of our dieting efforts is our fault. We did not try hard enough, long enough, nor good enough. That every diet craze is the ultimate, and we would be foolish not to try it. But in actual fact, it is the diet that fails US! So, why DO diets fail us? Dr. Lynn Edwards shares her unique perspective in deciphering the perils of dieting and the psychology of weight loss. In this book, another in her series of personal empowerment books, she shares with us twelve reasons why diets fail us, while presenting three fundamental ways to achieve a healthy body and lifestyle. The 3M's are the basics to any successful and sustaining effort, proven effective by the many clients she has supported over the years. Diets are based in deprivation, and Dr. Lynn presents a refreshing model that builds on strengths and personal fulfillment.

Infected in 1992, Stephen sought self transformation to successfully manage his HIV. His book It's All About Love: How To Have A Better Life became the philosophical product of that method and provides the basis for Healing HIV. He examines the sociology of the disease and uses it to prove the metaphysical causes showing that by addressing the physical causes at their non physical cause you can have a perfectly normal life without medication just as he does. Being a holistic approach he describes the emotional causes and provides remedies to clear these blockages that are impacting you physically and in the quality of your life on all its levels. "You have cleared the overgrown terrain of all the misconceptions regarding the experience of HIV. As a pioneer you have seen the new land of possibility for others to embrace" -Dr Sharron Stroud (Outstanding Woman of the 20th Century).

Your mind is most powerful tool you can imagine; it can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. You are the only person responsible for what is happening to you, and if you see it any other way it is because of your mind and the way it is trained. Imagine that you are a carriage and your thoughts are horses, and if those horses are out of control, guess what will happen? Every horse (your thoughts) will keep pulling in their own direction without any regard to what will happen to the carriage, which is you. However, if you learn how to tame your horses/thoughts you will be in control of them. This is the truth, whether you believe it or not.

A Reason to Carry On

When your world falls apart

How is it possible to carry on with life when the world you live in is falling apart? How is it possible that the very thing you prayed for, for so long is suddenly taken away from you and you are left empty? How is it possible that the people you run to for friendship and help now turn away from you leaving you sad and lonely? What does one do when there is nothing to hold on to; when friends and family turn away and there is nowhere to turn to? Where do you turn to when the world gets too cloudy and unreceptive; when the sounds of laughter mimic clanging cymbals and relationships become rocky and disintegrate? How is it possible to hold on when the future is so gloomy? God has made a way for you. He does not delight in your misery. There’s a way he has made for you through the darkest wilderness, where there has never been a way. Don’t give up yet, it’s going to be okay. Keep your hope alive; weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning. There is a morning that is coming for you. Your world will not fall apart; something will work out, beyond your expectation and wildest imagination. New friends will come your way to replace those who left. Your family will come through whatever challenges they have been facing and God will bring a spirit of understanding and forgiveness. You were designed with an endurance capability, and whatever you go through, he tested you for it in advance and you passed. There is nothing that will hold you back unless you give it permission to. Whatever you set your mind to do you will achieve because that is where your heart will be. He knows the potency he put in you, He knows the acumen he put in you, and He knows you will not break under any weight or pressure. God knew you would be tried and tested, like Jesus was, but nothing will break you. God put in you a resilience power, when you are down you will easily rise up and carry on. He put in you a wake up power that puts you back in motion even in your weakest moment. He put in your heart a new song, a song of victory because when he formed you he knew you will be an over comer. That is why you never give up, that is why something inside you tells you to move on, carry on, don’t stop here. That is what this book is about; to provide you with a map quest that will guide you from the undesirable location you are at and provide you with ideas of how you can move on with your life. Regardless of how far you have gone into the rugged interior, you can begin again. You creator designed you with the ability to recharge yourself in times of turmoil, so that in place of giving up you can restart your life and carry on. I pray that this book will lead you to that point where you can ultimately recharge yourself, put your life together and carry on.
