    37 Seconds - Dying Revealed...

    Like Proof of Heaven and To Heaven and Back, a medical drama with heavenly implications in which a woman receives premonitions of her death that come true, and her discovery of the heavenly help available to all of us. 
    When she was pregnant with her second child, Stephanie Arnold had a sudden and overwhelming premonition that she would die during the delivery. Though she tried to tell the medical team and her family what was going to happen, neither the doctors nor her loved ones gave her warnings credence. Finding no physical indications that anything was wrong, they attributed her foreboding to hormones and anxiety. 
    One member of the medical team did take her concerns seriously enough, and made the fateful decision to order extra units of blood “just in case.” Then, during the delivery, Stephanie suffered a rare Amniotic Fluid Embolism. She went into cardiac arrest and flat-lined for 37 seconds. She died. Using the supplementary blood, the medical team revived her, and she remained unconscious for more than six days. 
    After months of recovery, Stephanie began to remember details of her experience, details she knew because she had witnessed the entire dramatic event, including her death, from outside her body—beside other spirits that were with her. In this remarkable true story, Stephanie recounts her harrowing journey and shares her surprising spiritual discoveries: we are not alone and have more loving help than we can imagine surrounding us.

    This is a new exploration of the Tarot, which reveals the esoteric numerological links underlying this ancient system and connects the teaching of the Tarot to the initiatic journey of the Soul. If you are aspiring to connect with the mysteries of our life on this planet or you are already a disciple in some school of spiritual attainment, this is a book which will illuminate your way. As we explore beyond those physical emotional and mental aspects that we call the personality, we find another energy that is not so easy to define and which seems to move us at a deeper level; this is the Soul. When we are receptive to the Soul's mystery we can start to connect to the universal collective energy of the Spirit. The different stages in the fusion of personality and Soul and the unknown, unseen alchemy of transmutation from matter to Spirit are illustrated by the twenty-two cards of the Major Arcana. The symbols are explained and the deeper esoteric meaning of each card is explored with the help of number. This provides practical steps that can be applied to the everyday lives of those who seek greater consciousness.   Claudine Aegerter started Transcendental Meditation in 1970, then joined the National Federation of Spiritual Healers, where she realised her abilities to channel. She then started teaching and giving workshops in esoteric subjects. As a leader in her field, a counsellor and a healer, she founded the Connaissance School of Numerology in 1993, bringing unique insights into the initiation of consciousness to many around the world.   Berenice Benjelloun has worked as a professional artist, Homeopath, workshop leader and Numerologist. The inspiration and underlying energy behind all her occupations has always been the promotion of the expanding consciousness of mankind. She teaches at The Connaissance School of Numerology and is Vice chair of the Association Internationale de Numerologues.

    Pomegranate - The Super Fruit 
    A Thousand Year Secret Healing Power Revealed! 
     Learn How to prevent Heart Disease, High Cholesterol, Stroke and So Much More 
    Each of us probably knows someone who suffers from one or more so-called “disease of civilization.” These diseases - which include obesity, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, high cholesterol and heart disease - are ailments that seem to disproportionately affect members of Western society compared to those in other parts of the world. Oddly enough, all of the diseases mentioned above are affected in some way by your diet. 
    For years, I lived with extra weight. Okay, extra weight is underselling it a bit. I was obese. Not just that, but I suffered from a battery of related illnesses that often go hand-in-hand with obesity, namely high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. At one point, my doctor warned me that my dietary habits had me on a surefire collision course and if something in me didn’t change, no amount of prescription writing could save me from the fate that lay ahead – heart disease. 
    Well, you know doctors. They offer lots of advice and plenty of stern warnings. You can get sort of immune. I did. Needless to say, I didn’t listen. That is, until a bout with chest pain landed me in the ER. I’d had a heart attack. 
    That warning I heeded. 
    I decided the doctor was right. If I was going to live and enjoy a good quality of life, I had to change my habits once and for all. It wasn’t easy at first. If you have ever attempted to swap out your old habits for new habits, you probably know what I mean. 
    Some habits, like eating, require more than just a simple menu change. In order for my changes to be effective long-term, I had to learn what it would take to stay healthy and promote my desire for a better lifestyle over my emotional desire for a temporary sugar-high, which food often provided for me. Not easy, but certainly doable. 
    The first thing I did was cut back on my intake of refined sugars (love ‘em) and simple carbs (doubly love ‘em). Talk about painful. The next thing I did was conducted some serious research on alternative medicine and all-natural healing techniques. I studied Ayurvedic medicine. I even took a trip to India to really gain some insight into ways to use Ayurvedic medicine to help my body heal from years and years of malnutrition and dietary abuse. The trip was both eye-opening and, I believe, life-saving. 
    My research helped me to uncover and successfully apply natural healing techniques to restore my body’s natural balance. After years of developing and solidifying my poor diet habits, it took just a few years for me to unlearn my poor nutrition habits and train my body to long for the foods that would help to keep it disease-free. Believe it or not, a significant part of that discovery is centered around the healing qualities of the pomegranate. 
    My goal is to share what I found in this easy-to-read guide so that maybe I can help to keep you from going down the same road I took.  And maybe – just maybe – help you to restore your own health.  -Jasmin Carerra 
    From childhood, I always enjoyed Pomegranate fruit for its taste and the beautiful color, but never knew all these benefits and healing power she mentioned, a truly eye opening book indeed. -  Carmen Rodriguez
