“How to Permanently Erase Negative Self-Talk”
by Emily Filloramo

Are there areas in your life that you just can’t seem to get traction, get over, get happy, or get unstuck? That no amount of therapy, positive thinking, bodywork, books, or pharmaceutical “cures” can fix? How To Permanently Erase Negative Self-Talk: So You Can Be Extraordinary teaches you how to access the real cause of your struggles—the negative messages imprinted on the subconscious since childhood—and heal the wounded parts of you that are holding onto the pain, misunderstandings, and gut-wrenching memories that prevent you from feeling good. It demonstrates the little-known, cutting-edge technique to get rid of these messages, overcome fears and self-doubt, and get unstuck and unleashed. If you’re tired of burying the pain with addictions or fed up with depression, anxiety, and disease, then it’s time to stop attacking yourself emotionally and get access to the wealth, health, relationships, and happiness you truly deserve.

“Tanis and the Magical Valley” by Laurie Friedler

Having been prepared by two years of astral journeys with an extraterrestrial guide, eight-year-old Tanis asks her parents for a family vacation in Peru's Sacred Valley. As a result, Tanis and her family visit sacred Inca sites and find that ancient wisdom traditions are still being practiced in the Andes. In the context of Andean prophecies and practices, the book suggests how readers both young and adult can cope with our unsettling times. During her family's journey, Tanis comes of age spiritually as she encounters talking stones, shamans, spirit apparitions, spirit guides, Ets, and Ufos. Because of her open heart, curiosity, and generous nature, she is initiated into the wisdom traditions of the Andean people and connects with the mystical essence of Self beyond self, the healing power of Mother Nature, and the truly magical power of love.

Travels with My Son is my story about how we learned to love the world together.
