  • The Book of Knowledge hands readers key to truth

    GOLD COAST CITY, Australia (PRWEB) November 25, 2014

    Author, motivational mentor and life coach Roman Harambura believes that human beings are capable of great things and that everything is possible. He attributes all of mankinds potential to one gift in particular imagination.

    Harambura unlocked his imagination through communications with a being named Kuntarkis, who gave him the answers to many of lifes greatest questions. Harambura now brings readers these answers in his new book, The Book of Knowledge: I Am Alien (published by Partridge Singapore), which also features the knowledge to help readers unlock their own imaginations.

    Harambura says the universe is, without a doubt, full of intelligent life forms. He knows this due to his discussions with Jecuss Kuntarkis, an intelligent being who shares with Harambura the secrets of the universe.

    Throughout The Book of Knowledge, Harambura shares what he learned during his talks with Kuntarkis, as well as 433 questions asked by various people and the answers Kuntarkis gave in reply.

    An excerpt from The Book of Knowledge:

    It is your level of thinking that allows you to manifest your reality. Change your thinking and you change your reality. Take your human Ego for example. It is a creation of negative beliefs and conditioning, a combination of thoughts from your created past, based on negative experiences. Because the human Ego is full of fear and is not willing to change, it can only continuously create negative experiences from the past that which it knows to the present and into the future. It is all in your thinking.

  • Author Tom North Gathers Courage to Tell True Story About the Seemingly Perfect Movie Family – A Story about Domestic Violence and Child Abuse in New Book, TRUE NORTH

    Carmel, California (PRWEB) April 24, 2013

    After years of struggling with the decision about whether or not to tell his true story of growing up in the Carmel family made famous by a hit movie, author Tom North gathered the courage needed to write his book, TRUE NORTH – THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT “YOURS, MINE AND OURS. It wasnt easy to write about a subject that many people consider too private and that would make them feel uncomfortable. After all, the idyllic seaside community might be shocked to learn the truth about the famous local family they had grown to love and admire.

    Tom North explains, In the 47 years since the movie, Yours, Mine and Ours starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda became the 4th highest grossing film of 1968, it has not been unusual for one of my siblings or me to be asked what it was like to be part of that big wonderful family. Having seen the film many times, I must agree that what became known among my brothers and sisters as the big lie was actually a very charming film and a well-told story. Would that it had been true!

    The book begins in the 1950s on Whidbey Island, Washington, where Toms mother, Helen North, became a widow when she was just 30 years old and pregnant with her eighth child. Not long after, Helen North met and married Frank Beardsley, a man with 10 children, and she moved her family to his house in Carmel, California. The North children were adopted and their names were changed to Beardsley, and they went from a life filled with love and happiness to a living nightmare. The stepfathers violence, abuse, and even sexual abuse created a life of intimidation, confusion, turmoil, fear and depression for the North children. All hope seemed lost as Tom realized that he was caught in a prison and there was no way out.

    TRUE NORTH is the story of my journey through a life of domestic violence and child abuse, North remarks. Along with suffering from the abuse and the shame, my siblings and I also had to carry the additional burden of secrecy because we were famous. There was no one to turn to. Who would believe this perfect family was so far from perfect?

    April is National Child Abuse Prevention month. Currently there are over 10,000 victim service organizations working to help victims of child abuse, domestic violence, sexual assault, and other violent crimes in the United States. Yet, the silence that surrounds domestic violence and child abuse is deafening. The traumas experienced by children as a result of domestic violence and sexual abuse all too often are carried into adulthood in the form of poor academic achievement, lower IQ scores, poor language skills, low self-esteem and trauma-related symptoms. Victims frequently travel down destructive paths which include drug abuse, crime, and even continuation of the child abuse cycle as they abuse their own children.

    Siobhan Greene, Director of Voices for Children-CASA of Monterey County, California, (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) states: Tom North takes his readers on the painful journey of child abuse with honesty, candor and even humor. He reveals the shame, sense of betrayal and outrage, as well as the inevitable poor life choices that are a young persons response to persistent and often cruel maltreatment. While the reader might wish child abuse were not part of our world, North bravely tells the truth; the very thing that gives way to healing and forgiveness.

    North notes, My mission now is to reach out to people who feel isolated or misunderstood in the world and help them understand that they are not alone, and that their feelings may well be related to experiences they had in their early lives when they felt victimized by those who had greater power than they did. The healing never stops. Every day is another day of coping. But there is help, and hope.

    TRUE NORTH – THE SHOCKING TRUTH ABOUT “YOURS, MINE AND OURS is published by True North Productions, LLC, and scheduled to be released in July 2013. For more information, visit:

    About Tom North: Thomas R. North is a writer, poet, and adventurer. As the 11th of the 20 Beardsley children made famous in the film Yours, Mine and Ours, Tom had first hand experience of what it was really like to grow up in that family in Carmel, California. Having spent his formative years growing up in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, Tom was guided to seek solace and sanity in nature and later, Eastern Meditation.

    He has become a successful financial advisor, writer, poet, and motivational speaker. Tom has written extensively about scuba diving, jade hunting in the wilds of Big Sur, and spiritual topics as well. He is working on his second book, The Economics of Spiritual Transformation.

  • New book by Brendan D. Murphy covers a wide array of topics regarding spirituality and the universe

    MOUNT PLEASANT, Australia (PRWEB) February 16, 2013

    With the burning need to share insights on the nature of consciousness and reality gleaned from a combination of extensive reading, his first spontaneous mystical experience, real-world experience and meditative states, author Brendan D. Murphy pens his new book The Grand Illusion: A Synthesis of Science and SpiritualityBook One (published by Balboa Press).

    I saw that lying at the root of the worlds troubles was a fundamental ignorance as to the true nature of self, consciousness and reality, Murphy says. My task, therefore, was to do what I could to remedy the situation to whatever extent possible by showing people how incredible a human being is and can be in this integrated holographic (and sometimes bizarre) universe of ours.

    The Grand Illusion is a mind-blowing and perception-altering tour de force through the world of paranormal phenomena, consciousness research, related physics, spirituality, and suppressed and fringe science all woven together to present a revolutionary worldview based on consciousness and the unity of all life.

    When asked what he wants readers to take away from his book, Murphy answered simply, The knowledge that we are immortal consciousness with tremendous power and creative potential, and that paranormal abilities and phenomena are real and a natural part of life and who we are; that we are still evolving and can consciously participate in and accelerate the process, both individually and collectively.

  • Linda Sauget Offers New Book of Inspirational Quotes

    Davie, Fla. (PRWEB) October 26, 2011

    The law of attraction, a new metaphysical idea, gained substantial media attention with the film and subsequent book The Secret, a cultural phenomenon fueled by Oprah Winfreys endorsement. The general idea of this philosophy is that positive thoughts bring about positive results and that people get the things they want if they imagine having them. Offering her own take on the law of attraction, Linda Sauget delivers If You Think It (published by Balboa Press), her new book of quotes which define the philosophy she has used to achieve happiness and prosperity in her life.

    Sauget says, The single most important determinant in creating a quality life, achieving success in any endeavor, and living the life of your dreams, is simply this: each thought has the power to impact your life positively or negatively and at every moment you decide. Adding validity to her statements, she presents a number of quotes from such notable people as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Charles Darwin, Blaise Pascal, Henry Ford and Abraham Lincoln.

    The famous quotes are gathered into three sections: thought, belief and manifestation. Sauget introduces each section, briefly describing her philosophy and perspective, and offers inspirational thoughts and commentary. She writes that, We can choose our thoughts, reactions, and attitudes. We can choose what goals we have and what actions we take to achieve them.

    An ideal, thought-provoking coffee-table book, If You Think It will inspire discussion while prompting readers to consider their outlook on life.

    About the Author

    Linda Sauget grew up in Chicago, Illinois, and received her masters degree from the University of Illinois. She lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she is the vice president of a healthcare consulting firm, active member of Toastmasters International and a naturally optimistic, positive thinker.
