Introduction

I discovered how strong I was when my body was at its weakest. My physical and mental body could no longer think, move, or function properly.  My life and health were abruptly rerouted on a path that was scary and unknown.

Eventually, I knew I had to make a choice. Who was going to be in control of my future health and life, Lyme disease, or me?

I chose me.

I chose to trust and listen to my body so I could continue to thrive, learn, teach, and live a life of purpose.

I chose to view my life from a new perspective to create my place in this new world of chronic pain and Lyme disease.

Within this new view of living with multiple diagnoses, symptoms, and pain, I practiced the alternative healing tools and methods in this

book so that I could reclaim my health and start creating a life I was in love with again.

I want the same for you.

I was able to embrace and change my experience and relationship with Lyme disease and other co-infections to help me release my fears, heal, and transform them into a story of purpose. That is what I am sharing on these pages. I wrote this book to connect people and remind all of us that we are not alone. We are on this healing journey together.

I am not an authority on treating, diagnosing, and/or treating Lyme disease or any other chronic disease and illness. I am however an authority on living with chronic pain and the symptoms of this disease and my other related diagnoses. I also have a master’s degree in public health.

Please note that Lyme disease and other diseases/illnesses/symptoms are profoundly serious and could be life-threatening. They require proper medical attention and care from a qualified healthcare provider or team.

This book is not to be used as a substitute for your medical care and attention. Your life and health are important and seeking proper medical care is a priority. This book is a guide to provide you with alternative healing tools and activities to learn, practice, and empower yourself to become your own advocate to help you think better, feel better and live better in mind, body, and spirit as a whole.

We were born to live our highest potential even with our chronic illnesses, diagnoses, and symptoms. Sure, it was easier to plan our future dreams and goals when we had the energy, focus, and felt well. Even though our path has been temporarily derailed, it does not mean we stop believing, stop having hope, and stop having a purpose.

It only means we need to look at and approach our health and live our best lives differently. Sometimes all we need is a simple reminder, some guidance to gently nudge us and give us permission to start envisioning, creating, and living new dreams and achieving new goals.

My story focuses on my experience with Lyme disease and my personal healing process, but this could easily be your story too.

This book was written for everyone who lives with any type of chronic pain, symptoms, and illness. This book is for those who are still seeking answers and support. The message in these pages will provide you with hope when you experience the ups and downs in your personal healing journey.

There will be moments and days where you feel like you are succeeding and moving forward. There will be days where you feel like your health took a huge step backward. You may question your life, your purpose, and more. This is where hope comes in, the key ingredient that saved me and keeps me going.

Memoir, Business, Self-Help

How I Recovered from Injurious Employment Practices-So Can You!

Published: June 2020

 

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 

Casino Chronicle is the story of how one man contributed a number of
visionary ideas that the casino he worked for used to grow its business and
add comforts to its customers. This should be a story about great success
for the writer and his employer, but unfortunately it is not. This memoir is
also the chronicle of how the author’s ideas were stolen, under the
guise of an “employee suggestion program,” then he was
marginalized, his sanity questioned, and then ultimately pushed aside. It
revolves around a series of dark chapters from 1996 to 2004 that would
change the author’s life, but also teach valuable lessons about the
nature of casinos and the truth about what can go wrong between the powerful
and the powerless. This is one man’s story, but it could happen to
anybody.

75 million people in this country, or half of the working population, would change jobs or careers in a heartbeat if given the choice. Are you one of them?

 

Why are we so unhappy in our work lives? Do you feel like you are just
trying to survive the daily grind during the week, just so you can get to
the weekend? Is it hard for you just getting out of bed so you can get to a
job that seems like sheer drudgery? How do we find the spark that seems to
be missing in our lives?

We all want more energy and want to be excited about our jobs and the
things we are spending time and energy on, but yet it seems clear that there
is a pervasive lack of enthusiasm, drive or energy in the people around us
at home and in our jobs. People seem to be going about their lives unplugged
and unengaged in the spiritual power and unique energy given to each and
every one of us. Power and energy lie within our unique, God given
passion.

In the second book of the Authentic Self series, Discover Your Passion,
Release Your Power, Dr Cavazos guides us onto the next leg of this exciting
journey forward to our Authentic Self. One critical aspect of this path
towards discovery and fulfillment is the absolute requirement of finding and
releasing the power of passion. In this book, you will:

1. Identify the essentials of your unique passion

2. Unlock the power of self-motivation

3. Uncover your own personal drive to thrive

4. Begin to use focus and determination to reach critical goals

5 Harness the skills of goal management for well-being, joy and
fulfillment

6. Find the value, protection and guidance that passion and purpose
bring

7. Learn why millions of people abandon New Years resolutions within 6
weeks

8. Discover the 18 sources of physical and spiritual power available to
each and every one of us

Drawing examples from inspiring leaders and people who have been successful
in business, music, science, sports and the arts, Dr. Cavazos will help you
examine your own life and experiences to enlighten you on this captivating
and invigorating trek to releasing the spiritual and physical power that is
bubbling within you, waiting to be released and unleashed.

If you truly believe that you have a unique God given purpose, but you are
having a tough time finding that purpose or the energy or drive to fulfill
that purpose, then this is the book for you. There is an exciting,
empowering and spell binding adventure waiting for you that will bring
peace, joy and a sense of fulfillment and well-being that you had no idea
even existed. Discover Your Passion. Release Your Power. You won’t regret
it.

Brave The Wave

The Authentic Self, Book 1

Release Date: April 2019

Publisher: Deaf Dog Publishing

Anxious? Stressed? Confused? Looking for Solutions?

As a practicing physician for twenty years, that is exactly the situation
that Johnny Cavazos was in. What stunned and shocked him the most was one
inescapable fact. He didn’t know what he didn’t know.

As he describes it, “The best analogy I can offer is that it’s like taking
your car to the mechanic to replace a faulty fuel pump and he hands you the
keys to a brand new Mercedes Benz and says, “take it, it’s yours.” (That’s
how Elvis used to give away cars.) There is more value here than a new
Mercedes.”

In this poignant and riveting account of his decade long journey of
discovery, you will be entertained while gaining valuable insight to help
you understand and actually appreciate the waves, trials and storms that we
all encounter in our lives.

This inspiring narrative of personal experiences will reveal useful and
practical approaches to help increase joy, clarity, love and personal peace
in your life. This book makes for a fascinating, powerful and uplifting read
that can inspire each of us to reach for heights we never thought
attainable.

With brutal honesty and humor, Johnny uses short vignettes from the medical
world and from the captivating world of near-death experiences to take us on
a journey that is spell binding, powerful and life changing.

Writing in a comfortable and warm style, Johnny takes us on this trip into
spirituality, faith and the near death experience as he unpacks ideas that
will open up an experience of clarity and vision you didn’t even realize
existed.

Brave the Wave will share valuable insights that will have a personal and
powerful impact on every relationship you have, bringing benefits to you and
everyone around you.

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

 Author Devpal Gupta believes in living life according to those core values
to which we we all have access: respect, positivity, and passion. In his debut inspirational book, Power of One, Devpal extracts lessons from his
life’s journey which began in Tanzania and London and transplanted him to a
successful life as an Arizona-based commercial real estate executive and
applies them to real-life principles. With no holds barred, Devpal tells it
like it is — he offers no excuse and takes no excuses when it comes to
living a purposeful life. With eight hard-hitting, short-and-sweet chapters
like “Get Over It” and “Why is the Brown Guy Better Than Us”, Devpal
straight shoots advice on how to remain genuine, honest and real.
Devpal also introduces his own theory, the Power of One. He imparts upon
readers that in order to be truly prosperous, the only one you can rely on,
is yourself.

The Power of One is a fantastically quick read and a dynamic demonstration
of what it takes to be resourceful and resilient in a world that rewards

hard work.

#Excerpt “Perception vs Truth” by Eyal Cohen

tour banner

Self-help, Spiritually, Non-fiction
Date Published: April 7, 2020
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
Do you want your life to change?
The good news is that it all begins right in your mind.
By opening your mind, you can change your life in 180 degrees, making the phrase “Everything is in your head” more important than ever before.
The perception of reality steers our thoughts, feelings, the choices we make and the way we live our life.
It is the underlying reason why our lives are the way they are.
People who never examine their point of view of the world miss the chance to significantly change their lives.
What shapes our perception is the country we live in, society, culture, religion, parents, teachers, and publications like the internet, television, movies, radio, newspapers, and literature.
Many people are misguided by their perceptions, which constantly get them into problems.
This book, Perception vs. Truth, was born as a result of that insight. As the name suggests, much of the reality we take for granted in our lives simply isn’t true. Perception vs. Truth is a wake-up call for all of us. It is a fascinating read, full of interesting insights. It is a spring to quench one’s thirst for knowledge and understanding. It can open your mind to different ways of thinking, new feelings, and novel behavior.
Perception vs. Truth is a reminder that our lives can change just by changing the way we’re perceiving it.

Perception vs. Truth

Spirituality in simple words

Eyal Cohen

Preface

My Story

For as long as I can remember, I have had an indescribable desire to understand life. Throughout my life, I always felt that something was missing, but I didn’t know what it was.

In simple words, I kept asking myself, “What the hell is this life all about? What is going on? And why?”

Okay, we go through kindergarten, school, high school, and then college; some get married, have children, find a career, buy a house… But the inevitability of death was like a black cloud that forced me to wonder, “What is it all about?”

As I grew up, this desire became a sense of unease at the back of my mind, which made me feel incomplete and restless.

No one, myself included, could stop me from pondering life. I was desperately searching for the meaning of it all. Of course, at the time, I could not tell where such a search would take me or what innumerable hardships I would have to endure. Later, I learned that if I could work out what was going on with me or what was happening to me, things would be much easier. But there was no one available to help me with this, or at least I didn’t think there was.

In retrospect, this longing brought me into “spectator mode”­—observation of the theater of life—a situation in which I was looking at life as a though it was a play, but one in which I was participating, meaning that I identified with the characters on stage.

At around the age of thirty, I experienced a critical and overpowering turning point. After going through a confusing period, I woke up one morning with a dreadful emptiness. It felt like a big black gaping hole had opened in my chest. The words that jump to mind when I remember this feeling are, “all dead!” I had a very acute sense of loss, as though everything I had been until that moment was now gone. All I knew and thought and felt about myself and life in general, had died that morning and I found myself living in a bubble.

There was no connection between me, and reality and life as I knew them.

The feeling could be compared to eating food without the senses of taste and smell; without these basic senses, you lose the desire to eat. And in the same way, I lost the desire to live. What followed was a total collapse of mind and body. I experienced panic attacks, and simply standing up was a struggle. What I remember most is that I knew I had to hold on despite the strong desire to completely collapse, let go, and never get up again, because I did not want to worry my family.

Not able to understand what was happening to me, I did not want to get into a situation where I had to explain myself. Deep down, I felt insulated and lonely, and all I wanted was to be left alone.

Exact words failed me, and all I could describe was a state of tremendous fear, loss of control, and restless hell, and an inability to understand any of it. And so, I lived trapped in a kind of furnace that burned me alive. I was completely detached from reality, and my sense of identity was utterly gone as though it had never even existed.

After a few months, I began to see the simple beauty in my surroundings: a blooming flower, the shining sun, or a simple good morning. I welcomed every one of those little gifts that came my way, and I began to see the simple yet wondrous beauty in everything. And so, I learned to enjoy every little thing in all its greatness.

Despite those newly found comforts, I was still troubled because my fundamental questions about the meaning of life remained unanswered; my inability to find the answers meant that true peace still eluded me.

Over the course of a period that was relatively calm, words started to visit me just as I was on the verge of sleep. I felt a compelling need to write them down, and so I did. At first, words would come only at night, but soon, they began to surprise me at any hour. I would hear a word from someone and all of a sudden, an entire scenario would unfold before me, and I would have to write it down. At that time, I went everywhere with a small notebook, ready to write whatever came to me whenever it came. The material was absorbed into me like into a dry sponge, and I finally realized the answers to my deepest questions.

I realized that the missing part I was looking for in my life was myself.

In this manner, short and concise chapters took shape. After a few months, I had enough written words that the idea of a book came to life. Some of the things that I had written took me a while to understand. It took a while for them to crystallize into a book.

The book, Perception vs. Truth, is designed to introduce you to yourself. It is designed to introduce you to a different perspective of you and the world, one that you may not be accustomed to. Furthermore, it is designed to enable you to see how you are influenced and how you can influence yourself and your surroundings.

Perception vs. Truth holds the answers to all the questions that took me on a life-changing journey. I hope that reading it will inspire you to find your own answers to life.

Eyal.

**

Wisdom of Water

Wisdom of Water means that whatever I write, I’m not necessarily trying to say something concrete. You may say that I am painting with words. My writing is a set of different perspectives on each situation. I am not trying to make a specific point; I just wish to maintain awareness of many different and diverse points of view. Everything is valid; everything is circumstantial according to one’s own point of view.

Wisdom of Water means not getting stuck on words, definitions, etc. Like water, life seeks balance. And so do we. When we understand that there are endless ways to view each situation, and we use our ability to learn from any outcome, we become like water—we maintain our balance, and gradually, over time, we become wiser than before.

**

Spiritual Search

If you have an unexplainable yearning to know the nature of the world in which you live, then Perception vs. Truth is the book for you. To know the world is to know the “I” that you are. It is called self-knowledge, and it can only be known by one’s own wisdom.

Never be satisfied with the answers that come from others. Somehow, we learn to place more faith in the wisdom of others than we do our own. Listen to people, but use their answers as a guideline only.

Perception vs. Truth is about being aware and acknowledging yourself, and by doing so, life will become simple. Enjoy the adventure of your own self and discover the depths within, which can give you the answers you seek. Each of us is the expert of his or her life. Remember, whatever comes from deep within comes in the form of intuition, and you have to become more aware of that intuition, and learn to trust it.

Finally, Perception vs. Truth talks about the Promised Land, which we all reside in.

**

Introduction

Illusion

Some say that the vast majority of humans are sleepwalkers—people who live while sleeping. It would be truer to say that they live within an illusion—an illusion of their own individual creation.

Illusion, as one does not know what reality is facing him.

What is the source of it? And how is it created?

If we presume that life is like a dream, we could say that in order to dream, there is a need for a dreamer. There is a correlation between what one thinks and believes, and what one is actually experiencing. The term “illusion” is used because one does not fully comprehend the nature of his/her reality; therefore, we may refer to him/her as being “asleep.” One needs to be “awake” in order to understand. One has to realize that the common denominator in everything that is happening to him/her is simply oneself.

Once you are awakened to the fact that the cause of everything is within you, all your decisions you will make will be directly related to your perspective. Your own perceptions will be determined by this viewpoint. One who succeeds in having no viewpoint at all ought to have a very broad and profound perception. “Ought to” because it is impossible to adopt “no viewpoint” without actually having one. Any effort on someone’s part will constitute adopting a viewpoint; therefore, one is always condemned to remain as he/she is.

Although this paradox seems like a maze with no way out, this is where true liberation resides. True understanding leads to surrender, which in turn leads to freedom. However, when a person wears a mask (a personality, ego), that person cannot be free. Unknowingly, this person values their mask more than their freedom.

The difficulty is how to be free from the mask; free of conditioning.

When someone surrenders to the truth, they stop being dominated by their persona and their viewpoint. A person can give many reasons for liking something but the truth is, we discover what we like; we don’t choose what we like.

Who you truly are and what you love in life is not a matter of choice.

~~~

About the Author

Eyal Cohen was born in 1968. At the age of thirty, after a powerful and life-changing experience, his perception of reality was transformed completely, and over the next twelve years, he immersed himself in study as he sought to understand what had happened to him. He delved into the philosophies and wisdom behind the teachings of Buddhism, Zen, Taoism, Sufism, Mystic Judaism, Mystic Christianity, and more; and he tried to understand the state of the world by researching numerous leading thinkers of past and present times, such as Noam Chomsky, Friedrich Nietzsche, Socrates, Confucius, to name but a few.
His years of research, combined with his own experiences and knowledge, gave him a unique way of looking at life and the world that we live in. It was this unique perspective that gave birth to the book Perception vs. Truth.
In his first book, Eyal talks about how transformation can be achieved by working on the mind, our thoughts, and beliefs.
Among his associates who are living a “normal life,” Eyal is considered as a “strange, calm character.” He evades frameworks, commitments, and circles of society where there is no room for the free or the different. He surrounded with friends and people who wish to know, taste, and understand the secret of his relaxed charm.
Eyal is like a haven of rest to come to talk, and spend time with. He carries within him intriguing knowledge, which he knows very well to explain. He communicate the truth that he has come to know and understand.
It takes great courage and perseverance to free ourselves from the illusory reality—this confusing world that causes so many problems and so much suffering. We need to open our minds and examine our perceptions and beliefs in depth. The feelings of peace, joy, and freedom are indicators that we on the right track. The book Perception vs. Truth is a means to examine our beliefs about reality and the stories that we tell ourselves, which create our perception of reality and hence create our experiences in life.

#BookBlitz “Building Self-Esteem” by Joseph Burgo, Ph.D.

How Learning from Shame Helps Us to Grow
Self-Help
Date Published: May 2020
Publisher: New Rise Press
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
Despite what most people believe, shame and self-esteem are not opposites.
“With the skill of a master storyteller, Burgo vividly brings to life, through his clients’ struggles and his own, our shared journey to accept a startling truth: shame can either hobble us or help us thrive; it all depends on what we do with it. Savor this book’s lessons and exercises. You’ll come away with the kind of self-compassion that makes us all better people. “– Dr. Craig Malkin, Lecturer, Harvard Medical School and author of the internationally acclaimed book, Rethinking Narcissism.
Challenging widely-accepted views within the self-esteem movement, author Joseph Burgo argues that self-esteem does NOT thrive in the soil of non-stop praise and encouragement, but rather depends upon setting and meeting goals, living up to the expectations we hold for ourselves, and finally sharing our joy in achievement with the people who matter most to us. Along the way, listening to and learning from our encounters with shame will go further than affirmations and positive self-talk in helping us to build authentic self-esteem.
Richly illustrated with clinical stories from Burgo’s 35 years in private practice, Building Self-Esteem also describes the myriad ways that unacknowledged shame often hides behind a broad spectrum of mental disorders including social anxiety, narcissism, addiction, and masochism
For fans of Brené Brown and John Bradshaw.

ONE was born in my head just like my younger daughter’s name came to me; a gentle, yet certain whisper in my head, telling me to listen to it. I must do it.

That gentle voice arrived while I was showering, and I remember literally jumping out of the shower, rushing over to my computer and starting the process of creating something which simply had to be created.

As I am writing this, I have goose bumps all over my body. I still don’t fully grasp what has happened; I was led to this journey; I was an instrument in the hands of the universe. And, as always, I obeyed.

“You must do it now” the voice repeated. And so, I rearranged my priorities and my schedule, and let ONE lead the way. As the days passed, ONE was created, marvelous people came into my life, people I know will stay in my life forever, as our souls are united with the mission ONE has created.

We worked hard. Stealing time from our loved ones, sacrificing our sleep and ourselves. We created ONE, just as life is created; with unconditional love, with patience, with dedication.

It is hard to describe the feeling, the euphoria of bringing ONE to the world. It was something I couldn’t wait to do; I don’t really want it to end.

You will feel the love in the lines of this book. You will embrace the energy and accept it as yours, it is inevitable. That is, on top of the transformation this book will bring to your life and the lives of your loved ones.

To me, ONE represents a new family, a global family, people uniting together, as ONE.

Thank you  for  choosing me,  as  your  author, your  publisher, your “pachamamma”.

I am truly honoured.
