The book is exactly what it says, a workbox, it is a step by step activity of the book Love yourself heal your life.

It did take two exercises for me to get the hang of it. But after attending the Love yourself,Heal your life workshop conducted by Asma D’souza, the book became absolutely workable.

Of course how exactly one uses this book is up to the user.

Jonathan Langley’s life takes a devastating turn when he turns blind. Once a successful painter and printmaker Jonathan becomes a recluse, angry with world.

Her cheerful presence shatters his hardened exterior revealing the man he was before tragedy stuck. He finds a fresh lease and perspective of life with Lupe leading him. He discovers the power of Kindness, compassion and love.
The book brings back a fragrance of Silas Manor. The narrative is flat and does not inspire the affirmations and the power of affirmations are lost within the meandering and predictable storyline, the haughty rich girl losing her wealth , the negative filled mother, the repentant father. Even the so called twist is a predictable one.

Tools for empowerment

You Can Create An Exceptional LifeYou Can Create An Exceptional Life by Louise L. Hay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Authors Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson.
Publishers HayHouse
Genre Self help,New age spiritualism.

Good read, though not as inspiring or active as the previous book of Louise Hay.
The book is basically a conversation between Cheryl and Louise charting the journey of Louise to a certain extent, and Louise extending a helping hand to Cheryl.
It is a candid conversation that would empower and open our mind and heart to tools that will help us create an exceptional life.
The philosophy and view points do help us to tide over situations in our lives. The book has an interesting line up of parallel reading.
Louise Hay,the author of the international bestseller YOU CAN HEAL YOUR LIFE, is a metaphysical lecturer and teacher with more 50 million books sold.

Guardian angels

Healing With The AngelsHealing With The Angels by Doreen Virtue
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

publisher Hayhouse.

The book is guideline to accepting and understanding that Angels guard and guide you.
Dr.Virtue has covered a range of areas where one can ask the Angels for help. Ask and you shall receive is her conviction, observation and experience.
She authenticates her stand with transcripts with patients.
Somewhere along the line the book does not seem as motivating or convincing as it could have been.
One area that is really worth looking into is the hype around ADD, which is controlled with medication while the child may have different intelligence and aptitude at work.
Dr.Doreen Virtue is a clairvoyant, psychotherapists and one of the worlds leading angel experts. She is the author of books like Messages from the Angels and Angel medicine. More can be found about her on
