Diagnosis: Lupus, The Intimate Journal of a Lupus Patient by Marilyn Celeste Morris
When she was suddenly assaulted by myriad baffling symptoms of joint pain and extreme fatigue, the author embarked on an intensive search for diagnosis and treatment of what would be diagnosed as systemic lupus erythematosus, a little-known autoimmune disease that promised to destroy her body, her mind and her spirit. From the pages of her intimate daily journal, we travel with her through chronic joint pain, frustration, anger and grief for her former self to her current state of remission. Far from being a litany of complaints, the author’s pages reveal her unexpected spiritual growth and gratitude for life itself, and she hopes she can be of help to others who suffer from this disease or other chronic illness.

The Living Word of Kuan Yin: The Teachings and Prophecies of the Goddess of Compassion and Mercy by Hope Bradford
Bringing to Beneficial Law of Attraction: The Manifestation Teachings her extensive studies in ancient and contemporary wisdom and philosophy, Ms. Bradford has acquired more than a quarter of a century of expertise in clinical and transpersonal hypnosis. In spite of her extensive professional credentials, she could never have imagined the singular psychic event that would transform her life. Commencing in the winter of 2004, a hypnosis client, Lena Lees, spontaneously channeled twenty-eight sessions delineating Eastern goddess of Compassion Kuan Yin’s modern spiritual scriptures.
