Unlocking Your Intuitive Power: How to Read the Energy of Anything

By Laura Alden Kamm (2007)


We all have intuition — that gift of “quick and ready insight” we receive from our non-linear mind. But how do you use that gift? How do you develop the ability to access it at anytime? And how do you apply your inner wisdom to bring joy and health to your business and your life?

In this audio course, Laura Alden Kamm (featured in this issue, p. 34) shares techniques and insights from her twenty-five years of experience as a “medical intuitive” to help you cultivate the garden of your intuitive mind.

“Your intuition is your connection with your soul,” says Laura. “When you’re aligned with your intuition, you access the ability to make sense out of anything and everything you encounter.”

In this six-CD set, she gives practical, down-to-earth instructions, including guided exercises and meditations, to help you discover, harness and refine your own inner vision. She shows you how to apply the three core aspects of intuitive reading to any subject or object; how to discern the physical, emotional and spiritual state of the internal structures of your body; how to intuitively view subjects and objects from a 360-degree perspective; and much more.

With gentle, impassioned clarity, Laura helps you tap the transformative power of your inner wisdom that will allow you to express your true nature — and live your most joyful, healthy life in harmony with the voice of your soul.

BOOK
Harmonic Wealth: The Secret of Attracting the Life You Want

By James Arthur Ray and Linda Sivertsen (2008)


In his latest book, James Ray shows how easy it is to integrate universal truths into our lives.

“Just like the harmony created by each unique and important instrument in an orchestra causes your emotions to soar (like an eagle rising on an invisible thermal),” says Ray, “complete harmony in your life causes your level of happiness, wealth and success to soar.”

He reveals his formula for success in what he calls the Five Pillars—financial, relational, mental, physical and spiritual—and explains why having anything less than balance within all five will never bring true wealth. Illustrating his points with personal experiences, he encourages us to embrace everything we truly desire and to enhance the perceptions we have of ourselves and the world around us.

Fun to read and easy to understand, Harmonic Wealth is an empowering refresher that can help you keep your attention focused on what matters most.

“What is ‘entrepreneurship’ if not the conversion of your knowledge, talent, guts, etc.—through investment of your time—into money?” asks Dan Kennedy, author of the No-B.S. Series and owner of multiple businesses. As a speaker and business consultant, Dan has shared the platform with former U.S. Presidents Reagan, Ford and Bush, General Colin Powell and business leaders such as Debbi Fields and Jim McCann.

He shows you how to maximize your time with a fresh take on the mantra that “time is money.” It’s all about using the disciplined productivity strategies he has devised over thirty years of managing highly-profitable businesses with only minimal help.

Dan is a been-there-done-that entrepreneur with a whirlwind business life, yet he manages to fit everything in using a handful of home-brewed time management tools he swears by. “Don't count time, make time count!” he says, and this unusual time management guide shows you how.
