My colleague, Dr. Eldon Taylor, has an exciting new book out this week called What If? I've only read a part of it, so I can't give you a full review, but here is what some folks I'm sure you've heard of have had to say about it:

What If book cover.jpg"I simply love this book. Eldon writes in a brilliant,
thought-provoking style, challenging and encouraging
us to be fully present to our life's journey."
-- Colette Baron-Reid, internationally renowned
intuitive counselor and the best-selling author of
Messages from Spirit and The Enchanted Map of You

"Few are the authors who turn you inside out,

who blow up your preconceived notions and cause you to
become honest with yourself through and through. That's
precisely what happens when you read What If? I highly
recommend this book to those spiritual warriors who are
unflinching in their journey to the Authentic Self."
-- Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, the author of
Spiritual Liberation: Fulfilling Your Soul's Potential

"Wow--this book is a real eye-opener. As Eldon says,

it's not for the 'faint of heart,' but it most certainly is
for the person who's seeking the answer to that age-old
question: 'Who am I?' Eldon guides you to examine your
deepest thoughts, beliefs, and desires. While his process
can be challenging, I recommend that you stick with it,
as it can be the catalyst for profound breakthroughs.
What If? The Challenge of Self-Realization
is unique, provocative, and transformational."
-- Marci Shimoff, the New York Times best-selling
author of Happy for No Reason and co-author of
Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul

"In What If? The Challenge of Self-Realization,

Eldon Taylor goes even deeper into the pervasive influence
our thoughts have on our lives. Using fascinating new
theories, he challenges us to let go of controlling outside
influences as well as our own limiting, yet unquestioned,
habits. What If? shows us how to bring conscious awareness
to our thoughts and profound change to our lives."
-- Sandra Anne Taylor, the New York Times best-selling
author of Quantum Success and Truth, Triumph, and

"What if you could take a journey into the web deep inside

yourself where the real you awaits? Now you can with this
new book from Eldon Taylor, which is an amazing tool that
takes you deeply into that inner web. I highly recommend it!"
-- Deborah King, the author of Truth Heals
and Be Your Own Shaman

Pretty intriguing, huh?! If this is calling to you, they've got a great offer for you at

Spring Magic

| | Comments (4)
Just a couple weeks shy of one year ago, I was in my nephew's adorable then-7-year-old daughter Maggie's bedroom in their home in Raleigh, NC, looking at her rock collection. I had traveled from Colorado to North Carolina for my dad's birthday, which is, conveniently, in early April--arguably, the prettiest time of year in NC. After so long in Denver (12 years at that point), and with Rick's and my agreement that we'd move once the youngest of his children was out of the nest, I could feel a quickening of the energy and a strengthening of the powerful magnet of "home."

It was utterly gorgeous during that trip--most days that week were warm, but not too warm, and sunny, and the azaleas were just at their peak. If you've never been to the Southeast during Spring, suffice to say that there is an almost-overwhelming amount of beauty with much of the lush landscape in bloom--flowers everywhere you look--and the trees freshly leafed--or leafing--out. Aside from my family and friends, Spring in North Carolina is what I missed most and I missed it with the passion of a separated lover. So, one afternoon as I drove through Raleigh, which was my home during much of my 20s and 30s, and home to my sister's family and many of my dearest friends, it hit me: I want to live here again--not just somewhere in North Carolina, but here, in Raleigh.

The very evening that realization struck, I was invited to dinner at my nephewTyler's and his wife Carrie's lovely home in Northwest Raleigh, which is heavily wooded and hilly--just gorgeous and just my kind of place. As Maggie showed off her collection, she handed me a little stone and declared, "This is my wishing rock. Whatever you wish on it will come true." I believed her and made my wish.

Today, I was sitting on our deck in our gorgeous yard in our heavily wooded, hilly, Northwest Raleigh neighborhood, soaking in the sunshine on a warm and glorious Spring afternoon, in utter bliss to be where I had wished to be. And I was marveling at the power of Easy World to provide whatever you deeply desire, in magical ways with utter ease and without plotting and manipulating and struggling.

I'll save further telling of the magic of finding our home here for another day...
