It’s a book about our sixth sense and the natural awaking process I went through. It provides the names of a few teachers that took a subject I’d feared and plainly laid it out, removing all superstitions, which will help ease your awakening as it has mine.
What is enlightenment? Rodney Smith’s answer to that elusive question offers an explanation not only of the radical shift in perception that the word enlightenment connotes, but of the entire topography of the journey from beginning to end, of the multiple ways we undermine the very growth we seek, and of the awakened life that ultimately arises out of the new consciousness.

It is almost impossible to capture the richness and the beauty of the idea contained in this book within the confines of one book or thousand books. This is the essence of my own thinking and reflection, based on my spiritual studies from various sources of knowledge and the wisdom of the ancient seers in the last forty years or so of my life. It will be more appropriate to say that it is a product of my new awareness or call it the gift of grace that I have been able to put together multi-faceted ideas about the “Heart” in a new frame of light. We hear about the heart everywhere, whether it is in a romantic tune or about love from the heart or emotions emanating from the heart or somebody singing about his or her broken heart. Contrary to the popular belief that it is the brain that does everything and that it is mind or the brain that is the seat of consciousness; we now know that it is the heart, not the physical but the spiritual heart that is linked to the source of infinite intelligence. Since ages, in every culture and every religion, much has been written about the heart metaphorically. As per the wisdom of the ancient Hindu seers, Greek and Buddhist scholars; heart is the seat of human consciousness. Here are the lines from Rig Veda (X129), written more than 3,000 years ago”: “In the One arose Love, Love the first seed of the Soul The truth of this the sages knew Found hidden in their hearts, Seeking therein the essence of wisdom, The sages found that bond of union Between the known & the Unknown.” Mankind has reached the highest expression of life or perhaps coming close to the ultimate states of human evolution when it comes to emotions, feelings, perceptions and subtler or higher realms of consciousness. The natural laws of the universe are coaxing the humanity to seek the oneness, the unity and the harmony in the hearts of everybody and everywhere by rising above any barriers of divisiveness and separateness. It is true that we can observe the mind through that faculty of the mind, which observes the mind, call it the faculty of reflection or self-introspection. It is the mind that observes the lower mind or the monkey mind and through developing this new awareness, becomes the higher mind. Let us call this the super-mind. This super-mind has the faculty to absorb the heart-based consciousness beyond the limited and conditioned consciousness of the baser mind. In other words it is only through the light of this new awareness that mind becomes the super-mind. It is only through unity of the mind with the heart that the aspirant can experience a quantum leap in awareness and bestows the aspirant with keen intelligence. This keen intelligence is not a product of the lower mind but the mind that soaked in the heart-consciousness and the ennobling qualities connected with the heart. The heart is far more than a mere organ that pumps blood all day long, it is a generator of information energy and its cells are storehouses of info-energetic memories. Heart is a feeling, thinking, receiving and communicating organ having spiritual powers. Heart is the most sophisticated internal cosmic antenna, capable of receiving and remitting healing rays, through thoughts, feelings and prayers in the form of positive vibrations. This not based on some heresy or some old man’s tale or hunches, it is based on self-knowledge, wisdom and discernment and qualities of head and heart. It is your thoughts and passions deep down your heart that determine who you are and your core passions and what you will be based on knowing first and then implementing those passions through a plan of action. When we know what we are deep down in our heart, it is easy to go about following what we love and loving what we do. All our desires, ambitions, fears, loves and passions reside in embryonic form in our heart-center. We are naturally attracted to whatever we secretly harbor in our heart’s DNA, and whatever we harbor with passion has the p

Michael Bernard Beckwith and Andrew Harvey, are masterfully woven together in a book that will take you higher, drop you down and then lift you gently and lovingly and land you right in your heart - the center of the continuing evolution of the beloved community that is the foundation for a sustainable future for generations to come.
I invite you to come on a journey with me into one of the most important, yet often most neglected dimension of yourself, namely your heart. I want to help you discover, as I have slowly been discovering, that our hearts not only hold the key to our being able to live a fuller and more meaningful life, but also to our being able to play a part in helping heal our planet.' The change needed is a shift out of our primarily head-focus into becoming increasingly heart-centred, where we are connected to our hearts and are potentially capable of moving mountains. We are only going to be good activists if we have plenty of heart in our lives - if we are big hearted with a well-activated Heart. A culture of Heart is vital if we are to heal the many wounds and splits that exist between different classes, religions, tribes and nations. The book has been written from a place of great hope and joy, based on knowledge that our world is changing and that the planetary heart is at last awakening.

Despite being a mystical beauty with supernatural powers beyond any human abilities, there is this one guy who manages to completely get under her skin. 17-year-old Serena can't escape her true destiny any longer. She is transformed into a Siren and has to get used to a new name, new powers and constantly attracting every man's glance. Guided by her new family members, she faces the challenge of attending High School among humans without appearing different. When Alex, the most attractive guy, reciprocates her love, she seems to finally accept her fate. However, two secrets are yet to be revealed, and Serena has to make a tough choice. This is the compelling first novel in the Heart of Power trilogy. S. L. Giger manages to add a refreshing breeze to fantasy by successfully introducing us to the world of Sirens in our modern age. - A great and innocent but nevertheless thrilling paranormal teen romance. Must read!! (reviewsbyjules) Interview with the author Q: How did you get the ideas for this book? A: I love books like Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games but so far, I've only always concentrated on writing contemporary romances. When I was travelling through South East Asia the weird, twisted roots in the jungle inspired me that there could be a whole different world inside ours and so I tried to add a paranormal element to my romance writing and turn it into an urban fantasy romance. When I started writing it in 2013, I wasn't sure where it was going to lead but now I have a pretty clear picture of a whole urban fantasy series in three books. Q: So, are there more books by you, which your readers can enjoy? A: I wrote two more romance novels. "A sketch of what you mean to me" will be published around February 2017. If you buy "Heart of Power: Awakening of the Siren," you will find a link inside which will let you download it for free. The sequel of Awakening of the Siren should hopefully come out by the end of 2017. I'm not sure how much time I will find for writing next to my full time job. Q: You work a full time job? So, when do you find the time for writing? A: Anytime I can get. On the train, before work, after work, in airports, on a plane. Sometimes I feel a bit anti-social because I much rather would want to be home writing instead of going out on a Friday evening. I have to find a balance but I feel like writing gives me more energy because it's something I really want to do. Q: You mentioned planes and airports. Do you like to travel? A: I love exploring beautiful places and I use every chance I can get to travel. I also try to keep up to date with my travel blog, which you find on my website www.swissmissontour.com Q: Who will like the Heart of Power Series? A: People who enjoy reading an urban fantasy mystery or a paranormal teen romance. However, I wouldn't say it's a young adult novel only. If you like Vampire books, I'd say the chance is big that you also like Siren books. I hope I can give something new to the readers, since Siren's aren't yet as explored as vampires. I address topics like having to leave your family and friends and finding your way in a new environment, how while growing up and even as an adult you are faced with choices every day and it's important that you make a decision but that you also accept the consequences and of course, in Heart of Power, you will find the million butterflies, which you feel when you find the right guy for you and the insecurities love can sometimes bring as well.
