    To someone on the outside it seems like some people just naturally win the lottery – by a stroke of circumstance, they are a money magnet.  
     In reality, even if money was handed to someone on a silver platter, they have to manage to keep it and allow more in. That has more to do with a strong money mindset than with being lucky.  
     After Cassie Parks realized she could change her money beliefs to become one of “those” people who easily make and keep money, she spent years figuring out exactly how to change her money mindset. Now that she has, her money mindset supports money coming into her life easily and sticking around for the party. Parks has spent the last two years teaching other people how to manifest more money into their lives –whether they were entrepreneurs, employees or unemployed. The step-by-step process Parks teaches is the basis of Manifest $10,000.  
     Directions to the intersection of abundance, mindset, ease, and grace is what you will find in Manifest $10,000. Using inspiring stories about people who have manifested more money into their lives, and providing instructions and analysis about why others haven’t been successful in the past, Parks will guide you through the process of learning to manifest $10,000 into your life in the next 90 days – in a way that feels simple and fun.

    If you are tired of being on a diet all the time, if you have had enough of dietary supplements and “magic potions”, or if you feel that you are constantly searching for the lifestyle you were meant to follow, but you cannot achieve more than temporary successes... then this book is for you!
     
    There is one thing you have not taken into consideration yet: you are a special living being who has been equipped with a host of useful and viable features thanks to millions of years of evolution.
     
    In nature, we had to rely on ourselves, and our body knew the solution for every situation. The problem is that we became estranged from ourselves, from our true nature, which causes civilisational problems on both physical and psychological levels.
     
    This book is about how we can utilise the ancient knowledge of our body to return to our harmonious state, purely through natural methods. We can do this with the help of proper nutrition, exercise and the appropriate environmental conditions.
     
    “I have tried every slimming diet, but I couldn’t escape the ‘yo-yo effect’. Ever since I started following the AKB Way as a lifestyle, I have managed to keep losing weight but without starving, while my acute enteritis has also disappeared completely. I wish you all the best and a great success! :-)” Andrea H., Budapest
     
    “I am undergoing treatment with dialysis because of a serious renal problem. I had only been following the suggested lifestyle for three weeks when the chief physician saw my lab results and asked me if I could share what I eat and how, as he would like to suggest it to other patients. Alongside the fact that I had already stopped taking two medications (antihypertensive and diuretic) over 3 weeks, this convinced me completely… Transplantation became a more distant option for me, and I am very grateful for that!” László M., Üröm
     
    “I do sports actively, and I gave myself one month to try this lifestyle. My performance improved significantly – quite understandably – and my sense of wellbeing and energies became enhanced too. I stopped taking expensive dietary supplements, which gave me a great sense of freedom.” Balázs K., Budapest
     
    “With the help of the new diet, my bodyweight has returned to normal. I sleep more soundly, I wake up in the morning energised and I don’t get tired or lethargic during the day either.” Róbert P., Piliscsaba

    Most weight "loss" programs focus on overeating and lack of exercise; very few of them address the underlying reason for weight issues. Weight issues are a result of unhealthy patterns of behavior and a negative self image. The Service to Self process, taught in this book, focuses on reprogramming and healing old patterns of behavior to create a positive, lasting change, in self image - weight “release” is a natural byproduct of this process.

    You have dreams all your life some of which you never forgot because you believe or feel that they have been somehow important in your life. You are right. The same is the case with all people, across this planet and throughout all of its history, regardless of whether they confess to it or not, and that is the reason dreams have always been the focus of scientific research. It is not surprising that as we speak top scientists are studying the function of dreams and try to decode their messages. Researcher Aggil Loupescou did just that. This book will guide you into an exploration of the non-conscious part of your being and help you to understand who you really are. You will have a double gain: psychological balance and concordant development of the conscious and unconscious parts of yourselves, as well as positive energy to improve your life on a daily basis. It is worth reading it carefully.
