Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine
Medical researchers have found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet, combined with environmental pollutants and stress, can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body collectively known as chronic degenerative disease. Here holistic physician Gabriel Cousens provides a dietary regimen that may help reverse this process by introducing whole, natural, organic, and raw foods into the diet. These restorative "live" foods can reverse chronic disease and bring back health and vitality. This eclectic cookbook shares 250 delicious vegan recipes from chefs at the Tree of Life Cafe. Dishes include Avocado Salad with Rosemary, Green Dragon Broccoli, Raw-violis, Lavender Milk, and Carob Coconut Cream Eclairs.

Douglas J. Lisle, ...
A wake-up call to even the most health conscious people, The Pleasure Trap boldy challenges conventional wisdom about sickness and unhappiness in today's contemporary culture, and offers groundbreaking solutions for achieving change. Authors Douglas Lisel, Ph.D., and Alan Goldhamer, D.C., provide a fascinating new perspective on how modern life can turn so many smart, savvy people into the unwitting saboteurs of their own well-being.
What Cecilia says: Will change your views on diet and happiness, and give you insight to understanding the evolution of our species. Highly recommended.
Unlike other books on healing from so-called "Medical Mysteries," If I Only Had a Brain Injury encourages readers to chart their own inspirational journeys. The book's structure follows The Wizard of Oz storyline (Dorothy's journey begins with a concussion), guiding readers to a "yellow brick road through recovery." A collection of personal examples, alternative treatments and spiritual growth exercises, this book also offers wisdom from thirteen contributors, including Robin Cohn (Vice President of New York State Brain Injury Association), Dr. William Padula (Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association), Dana Reeve, and Kay Strom.
What Cecilia says: This book is for anyone who has a so called incurable disease such as a brain injury, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lyme Disease, and other so called medical mysteries.
There Is a Cure for Diabetes lays out a three-week plan for reversing the negative genetic expression of diabetes to a physiology of health and well-being. Dr. Cousens’s method, widely tested at his famous Tree of Life centers, is to reset the DNA through green juice fasting and a 100% organic, nutrient-dense, vegan, low-glycemic, low-insulin-scoring, and high-mineral diet of living foods in the first twenty-one days.The program renders insulin and related medicines unnecessary within four days as the blood sugar drops to normal levels; and the diabetic shifts into a non-diabetic physiology within two weeks. The third week focuses on live-food preparation, featuring 100 delicious raw recipes.
What Cecilia says: A must if you have diabetes or blood sugar issues.
What Cecilia Says: I use the mega garden to grow my own basil, cilantro, chard, spinach, and peppers on my apartment balcony. They can be used indoors or out.
What Cecilia Says: This is what we use to grow wheatgrass and sunflower sprouts at home.
What Cecilia says: I was shocked to find many so called "natural" mascaras contain Parabens (Nasty chemicals you don't want by your eyes!) DR. Hauschka's mascara is the most natural mascara there is. I wear it everyday with confidence and love it!
They have the best and purest mineral makeup on the market. Other mineral make-ups have caused me to get breakouts, but not Larenim.
Music for Healing
What Cecilia says: This CD isn't music in so much as it's soothing tones. I don't know what it does to my brain but I feel relaxed the minute I put it on. Good for massage and mediation too.
What Cecilia says: This CD is amazing it sounds like angles singing. It's a Brazilian artist with incredible orchestral arrangements combined with angelic voices, prayers, and catholic chants all in beautiful Portuguese. The best C.D. I've ever bought. Can be used for mediation and massage as well.
Journey Into Meditation
What Cecilia Says: In this C.D. Lisa offers three meditations. The first is a chakra balancing waterfall meditation which is very relaxing. The second meditation/visualization is about accessing information from your guides and higher self, and the third meditation is about visualizing the things that you want to manifest in life such as vibrant health and financial abundance. Her voice is soothing, the music is not overwhelming, and the visualizations are pleasant. My absolute favorite meditation C.D.

The Secrets of the Power of Intention
(6 set Audio C.D.)
Part I deals with the principles of intention, offering true stories and
examples on ways to make the connection. Dr. Dyer identifies the
attributes of the all-creating universal mind of intention as creative,
kind, loving, beautiful, expanding, endlessly abundant, and receptive,
explaining the importance of emulating this source of creativity. In
Part II, Dr. Dyer offers an intention guide with specific ways to apply
the co-creating principles in daily life. Part III is an exhilarating
description of Dr. Dyer’s vision of a world in harmony with the
universal mind of intention.
What Cecilia says: This CD set is deeply inspirational as Wayne Dyer teaches you how to connect with source and manifest your dreams.
What the Bleep Do We Know!? (DVD)
"WHAT THE #$*! DO WE KNOW?!" is a radical departure from convention. It demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus. It's a documentary. It's a story. It's mind-blowing special effects. This film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.
What Cecilia says: This movie reminded me that we have the power to create our own destiny through the power of our thoughts. It's a good thing to be reminded of everyday!
With his bestselling spiritual guide The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle inspired millions of readers to discover the freedom and joy of a life lived "in the now." In A New Earth, Tolle expands on these powerful ideas to show how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world. Tolle describes how our attachment to the ego creates the dysfunction that leads to anger, jealousy, and unhappiness, and shows readers how to awaken to a new state of consciousness and follow the path to a truly fulfilling existence.

What Cecilia Says: I read this book in about 3 days an have been using it's principles everyday with great results. Basically it teaches you that what you think and feel you attract into your life. After reading it I felt like I understood how the universe works and that I was in control of my experiences. It is a very empowering read. I highly recommend it. If you liked the movie "The Secret" you will love this book.
Ask and It Is Given, by Esther and Jerry Hicks,
which presents the teachings of the nonphysical entity Abraham, will
help you learn how to manifest your desires so that you’re living the
joyous and fulfilling life you deserve.
What Cecilia says: I really like the exercises in the back of the book. They lead you through visualizations, affirmations, and fun games you can play to feel more abundant and hence attract more abundance into your life. I'm having so much fun with it!
What Cecilia says: Another great book to add to your Esther and Jerry Hicks collection.
What Cecilia says: Another helpful and inspiring book by Abraham Hicks.
What Cecilia says: In the book Louise explains how we are responsible for our own reality and that limiting beliefs are often the cause of illness, especially feelings of unworthiness and self hatred. She outlines how to change your thinking and improve your life with positive affirmations and mental exercises to foster self love and acceptance. The book has been redesigned with beautiful illustrations and it has been a pleasure to read.
