Summary

Motherhood is an impossible balancing act between love and fear. 
Giving Birth to Motherhood will heal your birth story through writing. A mixture of essays and writing prompts break the process down into baby steps and address concerns from different perspectives. This all culminates in catharsis: finding relief from strong emotions. You will create a birth story you can be proud of, or one that you can burn in a fire and never think of again. The point is, it will be out of your head and down on paper where you can begin to move on. 
Your motherhood journey deserves a good foundation. Let’s start the healing you need to build upon. 
  
Amie McCracken edits and typesets books for self-published authors. Four months after her son was born, she sat down with a journal and wrote her birth story, discovering more through that process than she could have ever imagined. She felt compelled to bring that same healing to other mothers through a book like this.

    New & natural way to weight loss. Not another diet and vigorous exercise or some nutrient, vitamin, hormone, and drug that we are promoting. With child obesity at national emergency levels ; it is time to treat those fat, unhealthy, undisciplined, drug infested bodies with a technique that works. This book is here to help you with that. 
    The book is divided in three parts. Part one is about diet concept using the best of eastern traditions and western scientific knowledge. However, the traditional dieting approaches, in general, have not worked, and the number of over-weight young and old have gone up. We suggest you read this useful information. But may quickly go through this part if not have time or not interested in dietary aspect. Part two is actual technique that needs to be understood as thoroughly as possible. Part three describes the science behind the technique and technicalities. The reader is suggested to read part three primarily to understand the theory and to master the technique. If not interested in theory or don't have time, you may again quickly go through part three. But we highly recommend you read it. 
     
    Finally remember "At the end of the day, your HEALTH is your RESPONSIBILITY." Your body is a temple of the soul and the holy spirit, a gift from God. Consider every day what you can do to Care for the Temple. Good Luck!

    THE FEMININE PRINCIPLE - The Key...

    This book is a guide for men and women on using the feminine-like nature we all have for the final stages of awakening. Nurit has a way of bringing the reader into the depth of what she herself has realized. She offers insights into her own journey of discovery to provide guidance for seekers that are trapped in the repetitious cycle of the Mind and who wish to transcend to a new level of being. She also includes excepts from the Satsangs, lectures and interviews of Hungarian Master of Silence, Gabor Harsanyi. 
    The book offers wisdom of the sort that comes out of real life experience, demonstrating that understanding is available to us at whatever level one is willing to take it in. It gets into the nitty-gritty of accessing the feminine principle, and clearly points out how imperative it is to activate this principle if we wish to reach our full potential and awaken on a personal as well as global level. 
    Here we find a delightful balance of all the ingredients that make for a good read, including the lighter side. At the same time, the reader is halted, spellbound, wishing to savor a certain passage that conveys and contains rich texture, nuance, and depth to it. 
    “Through her writing, Nurit has a way of bringing the reader into the depth of what she herself has realized. Everything is fair game, and no topic is too taboo for her to pick apart or dive into. She is sincere almost to a fault, and her humor and honest self-assessment makes for a romping good read.  While carrying the reader along a river in a sort of merry way, the book offers wisdom of the sort that comes out of real life experience, demonstrating that understanding is available to us at whatever level one is willing to take it in. This is the gift of Nurit’s writing. From what I can tell, it is an intrinsic part of who she is: open, honest, wise, full of heart and at times just plain frankly funny. 
    “Both Nurit and her husband, Gabor, are dedicated to assisting the sincere reader in the return Home. This is where we all meet in Truth, where individuality opens up to a larger connected whole where pure possibility lives.” 
    Susanne Marie, Spiritual Mentor 
    “By stepping back from Mind, and sinking into one’s body, and going within, one can break the stranglehold Mind has on us and we can allow ourselves to experience life on a new level. Nurit offers insights into her own journey of discovery to provide guidance for seekers that are trapped in the repetitious cycle of the Mind and who wish to transcend to a new level of being.”

    Where do you come on your To Do list? Between juggling the demands of work, potentially toxic friendships, never ending life-min, parenting guilt, trying to be the best partner you can be – or looking for love – life can be totally overwhelming. And for so many of us, it's the bits we're not #winning at that appear to be flashing in neon lights as a daily reminder. 
     
    That's where kindfulness comes in – blending mindfulness with being kind to yourself. Simply, remembering to treat yourself with kindness in all instances. That means no more self-flagellation over so-called 'failings', setting boundaries to get the best out of your relationships and making your emotional wellbeing a priority. 
     
    From managing the impact of social media on your mental health to building self-confidence, Kindfulness will help equip readers with the tools they need to have a more positive mindset, put themselves first, identify the triggers in their life which can cause anxiety and generally take better care of themselves.
