One of the first books I read on my journey to self discovery many years ago was “Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins (Another great book I highly recommend).

Since then I have done many seminars with Tony; from Results 2000 to walking on fire in Unleash the Power Within 2001 where I actually won Life Mastery to helping others walk on fire through Leadership Academy.

I was at the Life Mastery seminar I had won in Hawaii with Tony when 9-11 occurred. Being from Boston and having been on a Boston to LA flight just 2 days before all I wanted to do was go home to be with my 4 kids.

There were about 2000 people from many countries and all walks of life. There were people from New York and Boston that lost loved ones that day. The stories and the lessons learned were transforming for many. It turned out to be an incredible place to process the events of that day thanks to Tony. Tony was a true master that day and he continues to amaze and inspire me.

The Law of Attraction and Ask and It Is Given by Esther & Jerry Hicks are 2 great books about the the law of attraction and the laws of the Universe. I saw Esther & Jerry many years ago and it was truly remarkable. The inspiration, wisdom and pure love came through loud and clear.

The non physical energy they call Abraham provides answers to many questions and inspiration to live a more fulfilling life. Esther calls Abraham “infinite intelligence” and Jerry referred to Abraham as “the purest form of love he has ever encountered.” They are both great books to help you discover how the law of the Attraction works and help you move into more.
