Understand the truth behind your negativity! Learn how to decipher your code...and stop sabotaging your success! Every day we all experience negativity whether it be feelings, emotions, actions, behaviour or self-talk within ourselves or from others. For many people it causes them to sabotage success, relationships, health, wellbeing and finances ultimately preventing them from fully experiencing their life and living their dreams. During a meditation at Stonehenge, Clayton Ainger received clear and detailed guidance about why we experience negativity and how to be free of it. In The Ego's Code, Clayton explores the spiritual reasons for negativity, its purpose and where it comes from. He explains the effect on the physical body, the mind, how it interacts with spirit and impacts on your life. The Ego's Code offers new insights and understanding to change old beliefs and perceptions about negativity. Clayton then invites you to undertake simple and yet powerful exercises to release your negativity, to change your reality, so you can live your dream life.
Chocolates are fine and flowers rarely disappoint, but for relationships on the rocks, nothing says, 'I love you' like the promise of renewal. In I'm Not a Mind Reader, Babits reveals that too often, even the smartest people have difficulty communicating, and we've learned over the years that love isn't enough to repair the normal wear and tear that occurs in relationships.
So, what can couples do when even love itself fails? Babits lays out a totally unique blueprint for renewal in The I'm Not a Mind Reader, explaining that every message from one partner to another can be considered in terms of three separate dimensions:
The surface level?this is the literal meaning of what partners say to one another
The emotional subtext of the message?its emotional undertone
The third dimension?evaluating the first two and comparing them with the goal of creating emotional safety within the dialogue
Armed with this formula, whatever needs to be better understood, resolved, expanded or modified in the relationship can be addressed and communication brings coherence and connection. The person who practices three-dimensional communication lives in full and vibrant color compared with seeing everything in black and white. This new method is vivid and textured; it promotes the capacity to negotiate differences, to clarify misunderstandings, to heal confusions, and to reinvigorate passion and trust.

If you have not encountered Chuang Tzu before, prepare yourself for a treat. He was the sage who stood apart from all others in Chinese history. He was a unique presence, a great mind like no one before or since. Chuang Tzu quickly distinguished himself and became well known for his deep understanding and sense of humor. His mastery was such that he could explain the Tao with simple stories, and his humor was such that he could see the joy in ordinary things. He taught his students about “carefree wandering”—the path of moving through life with a free and happy heart, regardless of how turbulent the journey might be.
It is time for modern readers to join in on the fun. Chuang Tzu’s wisdom is not just for Eastern culture, but for all of humanity. We may not have the instability or the clash of massive armies indicative of Chuang Tzu’s time, but we have a lot of stress and tension in our modern world. Many of us find ourselves fighting little battles on the personal front just to get through the day. We can benefit greatly from Chuang Tzu’s teachings. These parables are presented throughout this book and juxtaposed with the charming and intelligent prose of modern-day Taoist teacher and author Derek Lin. Together, Chuang Tzu and Lin will present you with simple lessons that will have a lasting impact on your life.
