Many of us read the lovely quote from Fred Rodgers that went viral this week. Ubiquitous as it was, I’d like to launch us into the weekend with a reminder of his sweet and comforting words. “When I was a boy,” he said, “and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”

A big Thank You to Rohan Healy–his review of Dianne Gray’s book The Everything Theory was my final cosmic message to go get this book! (See? People do make a difference for others, whether they know it or not.)
From the very beginning of Dianne Gray’s suspense thriller and all the way through, I was wonderfully overwhelmed with the feeling of being immersed in a hugely successful action movie! If you are looking for a moviemaking opportunity, I highly encourage you to explore this author and her story The Everything Theory.
Luke Canning is a 17-year-old amateur astronomer who, along with a select few others, has discovered a 10th planet returning toward Earth in its 4000+ year revolutionary cycle. Closely tied to this event are the connections of past advanced civilizations, their messages for the present, and how this relates to our future. Understanding the information contained within archaeology, mythology, native tribal cultures, and more becomes crucial to the returning planet’s timing, and multiple entities are chasing Luke and his group across the world to end their lives for it.
Oh my gosh, I could not put this thinking person’s thriller down until there was no more to read! Although I hugely enjoyed the digital version, when finished I promptly purchased the print version and added it to our public high school’s library collection. This is a story that needs to reach many people–for its sheer intelligence as well as its literary craftiness. It strongly elevates the reader’s head and heart, and is also a wonderful storytelling experience and example. Again, if you are considering creating a motion picture I implore you to investigate this author and her story.
I purchased The Everything Theory by Dianne Gray at Amazon. It can also be purchased elsewhere, including Smashwords. Be sure to visit Dianne Gray at www.diannegray.wordpress.com. I enjoy her blog, and am investigating her other books, too!

Nick Ortner’s The Tapping Solution was given to me by Hay House in exchange for my honest opinion of it. This book is a guide for readers to successfully use the powerful tool of tapping, also known as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).
Tapping addresses physical and emotional issues in our lives by using the enegry meridians in our bodies. Tapping on specific body points helps calm the nervous system, restore the energy balance, and rewire the brain to respond healthfully.
Not only does this book describe proven success stories in a variety of problems, it also encourages use on an individual basis for any personal issue–whether physical or emotional. Specific points on the body to tap are taught, as are language to successfully use for a variety of issues. Most importantly, identifying and individualizing your own tapping situation is encouraged and supported. This book is designed to empower the reader.
What I really like about this process is that although you may start with a physical symptom, you discover deeper, related layers to yourself. What you are ready to examine inherently surfaces, as do the tools to healthfully address it and grow. The depth of self-awareness is profound, and I found that to be unexpected.
Tapping allows you to change your symptoms right now, and I encourage you to be open to the process. Your successful symptom removal through tapping is a quick fix in the sense that the speed of change is now, but your honest embrace of what you learn about yourself is the lasting fix, if you will.
Do you need to fully “believe” in tapping for it to work? Nope–even only going through the motions provides some relief! However, my experience was that even a slight openness to its depth will bring profound results, on many levels.

Although pretty spectacular in and of itself, the author’s death experience is not the only facet to this book. Dr. Neal relates events from her childhood through life past that singular death event, how they all intertwine for her, and how that relates to each of us. She writes in a flowing, easily read manner that is about what she has to say and not about who is saying it. You will not be disappointed when you are not reading specifically about her death experience, which is why you picked it up in the first place!
Her writing and message transcend occupations and lifestyles, instead directly accessing hope, joy, and love. The book is about each of our personal spiritual journeys. Our journey encompasses this life and crosses over into the next, she shows that the two are not at all separate.
My dear friend Wendy loaned me her copy, and because I trust her book recommendations implicitly I gave it a shot. It was one of those deals where I didn’t really have the time, and I kind of forced myself to start it–and found I absolutely could not put it down! I did have to set it aside and breathe a little throughout reading, giving my spirit the chance to absorb such beauty. It is more profound than heavy, as it is incredibly supportive and uplifting in such a strong and gentle way without weighing down the reader.
The back of the book tells me that the author made the national media circuit with this book, and I am disappointed I missed that! I’m going to search Google and YouTube to see if I can find those clips on the Internet. After reading her story, I’m interested to see and hear her talk about it!
