Here is a sample chapter titled Watching the News:
The author has always loved keeping up with the times, with current events and developments, which includes watching the news on television—or, more often these days, reading it online and occasionally looking at a video clip.
A lot of conscious people resist watching the news because they find it such a negative experience, with reports of one disaster, murder, war, or tragedy after another.
However, the news is not all so gloomy, and such people miss out on that too—the good things happening, the social, cultural, medical, creative, sporting, and technological breakthroughs and discoveries.
The great thing about being awake and free is that you can watch the news without being personally affected by it. True, if something especially tragic happens somewhere you may shake your head at it, even weep a little with the compassion you feel for the survivors and their loss.
And if the reporting is covering an especially violent, bloody event, you may well say “Enough!” and decide to shut it off, or switch to a different channel or website.
Staying current with what is happening just further determines your resolve to contribute, in your own small way, to making our world a better place.
Love and blessings,

Private SessionsA private session with me is one of the most powerful and effective ways to uncover the stories that still keep you bound, preventing you from experiencing the love and richness possible in your relationships, work, and life. Sessions last about an hour and are done in person or, just as potent, over the phone, or via Skype with/without a webcam.

“I got hit by a meatball thrown through the telephone by Jim. It blew my mind. It was the best money I ever spent!” -Jim O’Neil, St. Louis, MO, www.surveyroom.com
