In essence, the title says it all. This book gives practical and powerful tools that will enable anyone to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally and consciously. This book is the result of twenty years of training with four spiritual Masters in this dimension, and seventeen years of teaching and training hundreds of students around the world. Michael demystifies what is often considered beyond our understanding. His writing is clear, direct and easy to read. The information is presented in such a way that people at all levels of consciousness will learn a great deal from this work. Regardless if you are now beginning your path consciously, or have been working consciously for decades, this book will spring you into the next levels of being and understanding. In fact, the text can be read year after year, and new realizations will come each time. This book is multi-leveled, packed with inner meaning and wisdom that speaks directly to the soul. Just the fact that you've delved this far in your investigation of this book, are now reading even the first sentence of it's introduction, speaks volumes about you: Primarily, it says you're considering - maybe even hoping? - that something you need will be found within its pages. And we both know you didn't just stumble upon a book about how to spiritualize no less than every aspect of your life while looking for some light reading. No, we are here together because you're looking for answers. Good, because that's what Michael Fikaris' book provides. Secondarily it says that you're not someone who's interested in a book containing three or four spiritual truths repeated fifteen different ways over three hundred pages. Nope. It reveals you to be the type of person who says, 'Give it to me now, all of it - I can take it'. Good again, because this book will do just that: give it to you straight, without the airy-fairy rainbows and halos, not that there's anything wrong with that.
In our current era of holy terror, passionate faith has come to seem like a present danger. Writers such as Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens have been happy to throw the baby out with the bathwater and declare that the danger is in religion itself. God, Hitchens writes, is not great. But man, according to George E. Vaillant, M.D., is great. In Spiritual Evolution, Dr. Vaillant lays out a brilliant defense not of organized religion but of man’s inherent spirituality. Our spirituality, he shows, resides in our uniquely human brain design and in our innate capacity for emotions like love, hope, joy, forgiveness, and compassion, which are selected for by evolution and located in a different part of the brain than dogmatic religious belief. Evolution has made us spiritual creatures over time, he argues, and we are destined to become even more so. Spiritual Evolution makes the scientific case for spirituality as a positive force in human evolution, and he predicts for our species an even more loving future. Vaillant traces this positive force in three different kinds of “evolution”: the natural selection of genes over millennia, of course, but also the cultural evolution within recorded history of ideas about the value of human life, and the development of spirituality within the lifetime of each individual. For thirty-five years, Dr. Vaillant directed Harvard’s famous longitudinal study of adult development, which has followed hundreds of men over seven decades of life. The study has yielded important insights into human spirituality, and Dr. Vaillant has drawn on these and on a range of psychological research, behavioral studies, and neuroscience, and on history, anecdote, and quotation to produce a book that is at once a work of scientific argument and a lyrical meditation on what it means to be human. Spiritual Evolution is a life’s work, and it will restore our belief in faith as an essential human striving.

A practical guide to conscious evolution for personal, spiritual, and global transformation • Provides spiritual practices to manifest a meaningful connection between Self and God/Source/Creator and psychological exercises to heal the shadow self • Offers an in-depth overview of religion and spirituality, both the old paradigm and the evolving new one • Includes the first fully written account of the First Nations Peoples’ oral wisdom teachings on the 7 Dark, 7 Light, and 7 Rainbow Arrows for evolving consciousness We are living in an unprecedented time of change, a new epoch with a new consciousness. We have reached Zero Point in our personal and collective consciousness and are now in a phase of accelerated conscious evolution and manifestation of personal and collective vision. As the current political, economic, and social systems begin to collapse, people are instinctively and intuitively reevaluating their lives and asking what has real meaning and value and what brings them true peace and happiness. Humanity is now poised to establish a unified, co-creative new world that reflects the evolved consciousness of awakened hearts and minds, of collaboration, and of peace. Presenting a guide for these auspicious times, Nicolya Christi offers psychological and spiritual tools to accelerate conscious and global evolution and initiate a New Consciousness for the post–December 21st, 2012, epoch. She gives an in-depth overview of religion and spirituality, both the old paradigm and the evolving new one, and explains how all trauma results from “empathic disconnection,” which hinders our spiritual growth. She provides spiritual practices to manifest a meaningful connection between Self and God/Source/Creator as well as psychological exercises to heal and integrate the shadow self and dissolve psychological wounds. She offers the first fully written account of the First Nations Peoples’ oral wisdom teachings on the 7 Dark, 7 Light, and 7 Rainbow Arrows for evolving consciousness. She also writes in depth about the evolution of relationship and aspiring to a higher love and sexuality. Detailing several maps and models for conscious and global evolution, this handbook inspires each of us toward a consciously evolving spirituality and a true and authentic relationship with God/Source/Creator.
The Evolving Soul is dedicated to the notion that we are all on a path of spiritual evolution and that we are meant to become highly evolved super-beings. It is not about the idea of a far-off concept such as heaven, but involves our capacity to live in a state of complete peace and harmony while living in this increasingly busy world. It is about how the Universe is teaching us to evolve every day. This book also explores the varying levels of spiritual growth through which we all progress, moving from resistance to tolerance, and eventually into full acceptance. It also examines how these varying states of evolution relate to relationships, ego, hidden issues, inner decisions, true happiness, and unconditional love. The Evolving Soul is designed as a guide toward the highly evolved path of finding true peace amidst the chaos. Through simple hands-on principles, it offers meaningful guidance toward a greater awareness of how life is trying to teach us to find this extraordinary state of being.

"SPIRIT WIDSOM FOR Daily Living: your guide to mental, emotional and spiritual well-being" is a motivational, inspirational spiritual book on the dynamics of life's philosophic and religious dimensions. It teaches empowerment, the evolution of spirit, the psychological construct, free will and control over our actions. It is not a what to do, a how to do anything kind of book. My intent is not to tell people what to think; I just want to remind them that they have the ability to think for themselves, and maybe that will awaken the dormant powers within. This from a reader: "Thank you for putting your experience in words. It has inspired me to continue to discover who am I. you have given me answers to some burning questions that have been lingering with me for some time now. Thank you very much, with Love"

The wisdom that the 2012 code can inspire in us is to look directly at our lives, right here and now: What are our spiritual guiding principles? How can we live in greater harmony with all our personal relations? How can we embody genuine compassion? How can we become increasingly aware and self-reflective? How can we deepen our humility? How can we share our talents and gifts as a way to influence our culture and help manifest the new paradigm? How can we be of service to life, and positively contribute to the whole? How can we cultivate a balance of being and doing, receptivity and action? On this diverse planet, we all have different strengths, different abilities, different callings. Rather than looking to the world to show us our path, we need to look deep within our spiritual being and listen to our inner sense of how to navigate these times of the great unknown. It is essential we learn to hear the voice of our inner wisdom, our spiritual self. No one can give us wisdom; it is within all of us, born of our own direct experience. We each have our own direct connection to our spirit, and we must keep learning how to hear our divine, intuitive directives, whispering within. Th is ability to hear the voice of our inner guidance is the most practical skill we can cultivate in these times. It is what will inform us to how to synchronize in the right place at the right time.

“Carter Phipps brilliantly expands our understanding of evolution by showing us that a new science is emerging—one that will holistically integrate our understanding of consciousness, cosmology, and evolution.” —Deepak Chopra Blending cutting-edge ideas with incisive spiritual insights, Evolutionaries is the first popular presentation of an emerging school of thought called “evolutionary spirituality.” Carter Phipps, the former executive editor of EnlightenNext magazine, asserts that evolution is not only a scientific but also a spiritual idea in a book whose message has the power to bring new meaning and purpose to life as we know it. Readers will be fascinated and enlightened by Evolutionaries, a book which Deepak Chopra, the world-renowned author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Superheroes, Jesus, and Buddha, says “is going to help create a worldview that will influence our vision of the future direction of evolution and also our role in consciously participating in it.”
