A Few Minor Adjustments front cover

A Few Minor Adjustments is the tongue-in-cheek title of Cherie Kephart’s memoir of surviving undiagnosed illness. It is an astonishing story of how many of our modern diseases (such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Epstein-Barr virus and Lyme disease) can easily go undiagnosed or disregarded.

Kephart’s account of her own incredible journey to find life-saving answers should inspire anyone to continue to fight on all levels – physical, mental and spiritual – to heal.

 

 

Implicit-10-16-17 CoverIMPLICIT: Soul Invictus contains both wildly imaginative stories of a woman’s many incarnations, worlds, and adventures, and a profound discussion on the meaning of life, love and forgiveness.

Maya Lee is a law professor holding a grudge, but as we follow her soul through many other incarnations in both ancient and modern times and places, a theme emerges – about forgiveness, about love, about what is real and what isn’t.

Finding God in the Body by Benjamin Riggs offers “A Spiritual Path for the Modern West.” For those of us with Western sensibilities but an affinity toward the practices of Buddhism or other Eastern religions, Riggs offers a path that looks with fresh eyes at the Judeo-Christian texts and combines their spiritual teachings with practices, such as meditation, of the East.

In Thaddeus Squirrel: A Spiritual Fable, a YA novel, the main character realizes that working day and night foraging for acorns, more than he would ever need, is meaningless to him. He ends up running away from his tribe of squirrels as he’s not accepted for his difference of opinion. On his journey, he is gravely injured by a dog, then cared for by a group of chipmunks who have wisdom to share… offering Thaddeus new questions to peruse and new ideas to consider… ultimately, that his life has meaning, and it’s up to him to find that meaning within himself.

One of the most useful guides I’ve ever read for self-healing and for energy healers is Be Yourself and Be Well: Connecting with your Soul’s Power to Heal. Dr. Steven Hiebert provides inspirational words and exercises to help the reader access the power of their own spirit… the power that makes healing possible.

PrincipleofOnenessMany have said “We are all one,” but what does that really mean? In The Principle of Oneness, Author Russell Anthony Gibbs explains the science behind the connections of everything — both physical matter and nonphysical energy. He supports his points with quotes from scientists, enlightened beings, spiritual leaders, philosophers and others. Great minds like Albert Einstein, Buddha, Aristotle, Rumi and Jesus all understood the profound Oneness of the Universe. Gibbs further clarifies some of the misconception about the Universe/God as well as explains how to live and experience the Principle of Oneness.

 

The Chakra Energy Diet coverIn The Chakra Energy Diet, now available in paperback, I share my passion to be mindful of how we choose to nourish ourselves. I have found that the best place for EVERYONE to start is by eating fresh, whole foods, focusing on the colorful array of vegetables and fruit that are available, and using my helpful tips to eliminate the stress that is affecting your health and your waistline.

No one diet is right for everyone – take the quiz and find out which of your chakras need more nurturing to balance your energies.

The Principle of Oneness: #BookReview and #AuthorInterview


PrincipleofOnenessMany have said “We are all one,” but what does that really mean? The Principle of Oneness is a practical guide that helps you understand and experience the profound unity of everyone and everything. Author Russell Anthony Gibbs explains the science behind the connections of everything — both physical matter and nonphysical energy. He supports his points with quotes from scientists, enlightened beings, spiritual leaders, philosophers and others.

Great minds like Albert Einstein, Buddha, Aristotle, Rumi and Jesus all understood the profound Oneness of the Universe. Gibbs further clarifies some of the misconception about the Universe/God as well as explains how to live and experience the Principle of Oneness.

Thanks to guest reviewer Constance Messmer, an author and psychic and spiritual development teacher.

Author Russell Anthony Gibbs does it again. The Principle of Oneness expounds on the first principle from his award winning and bestselling book, The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life.

His new book offers compelling enlightenment information in a clear and concise read. It illuminates the interconnectedness (Oneness) of the physical and spiritual realities, using quantum physics, philosophy, and religion to support his explanation.

Readers will appreciate Gibbs’ easy-to-follow explanations as he brings them to a deeper understanding of others and helps them to find joy and Oneness with activities and, yes, even abstract concepts. Self-love, acceptance, inner strength, wisdom, and knowledge of our eternal existence, all can be gained as one reads through Gibbs’ book. He skillfully guides the reader in an effort to teach the power of connecting to the collective consciousness and the great sense of empowerment, awe, responsibility, and ultimately peace in knowing we control everything in our reality.

It left me with a much deeper understanding of who I am and my profound connection to absolutely everything. With this highlighted awareness, my approach to life has been realigned in a powerful way.

After reading this, his second book in his series of enlightenment material, I look forward to his third installment.

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR RUSSELL ANTHONY GIBBS:

What are your objectives with this book and this series of books on enlightenment?

Gibbs: The Principle of Oneness is the second book in this series of enlightenment material. It serves as a reference guide to spiritual and scientific enlightenment clearly explaining the Oneness connections of the Universe/God and the collective consciousness. If you can understand and experience the Principle of Oneness you can then utilize the infinite power of the Universe to better enjoy your experience of life. The objective of this series of books on enlightenment is to create a comprehensive body of work that clarifies the nature of our existence.

What is enlightenment and why is it important?

Gibbs: Enlightenment is a profound, intellectual and spiritual awakening to your higher consciousness. Enlightenment is the ultimate goal in several religions and philosophies and is the means to achieve nirvana, which is the state of perfect happiness and peace. Confusion, suffering, pain and faltering through life are the opposite approach to enlightened living. While enlightenment is not necessary to exist, it makes your journey in life much less difficult and far more enjoyable. Attaining enlightenment is ultimately a means to improving the quality of one’s existence.

Why use so many quotes in your books?

Gibbs: The use of multiple quotes utilizes the power of the collective consciousness. Other people are actually the multiple facets of your broader self. Enlightened beings, scientists, sages and some intellectuals understood and articulated the principles of enlightenment in profoundly beautiful ways. The quotes help support and add depth and richness to the explanation of the principles. Also, the variety of quoted authors can offer readers a familiar voice that resonates more with their particular personal consciousness.

How was the first book in this series received?

Gibbs: The first book, The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life, received numerous professional 5-star reviews and won multiple national book awards. The book is clear, concise and straightforward and many readers were surprised with the depth of the material in so few pages. The book is distributed worldwide and made Amazon’s Bestsellers List in two different categories and in all three formats.

What is the best aspect of these books?

Gibbs: The simplicity and clarity of the enlightenment material is one of best aspects of the books. A reader can walk away with a basic working knowledge of significant spiritual and scientific concepts such as string theory, multiverse theory, atomic emptiness, dark energy and matter, panpsychism, Oneness, Manifestation and Timelessness. All of the books in this series offer vast spiritual/scientific concepts in concise formats and are branded Espresso Wisdom, because they are concise, intense and deep. Like espresso coffee, the insight is an intense jolt of enlightenment.  Enlightenment is an awakening, and Espresso Wisdom is meant to help jumpstart you on your journey.

The Principle of Oneness and The Six Principles of Enlightenment and Meaning of Life are both available on Amazon.com in Kindle, paperback and hard cover. For more information on this philosopher and enlightenment seeking author, see RussellAnthonyGibbs.com.

Namaste!
