Have you ever wondered how childhood experiences shape our lives and contribute to the person we see everyday in the mirror? Most of us carry fears, prejudices and a way of viewing the world that were programmed into us as children. Usually unbeknownst to us, these experiences shape our perception of the world and those around us. While many of the programs that operate in our subconscious can be positive, there are also programs that are fearful, anxious, impatient and counterproductive to living a fulfilled life.
In Ira Israel's newest book, How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You're an Adult: A Path to Authenticity and Awakening, we are led to examine our beliefs, subconscious programs and assumptions that might be preventing us from experiencing the life we truly desire. Through wisdom gained from over thirty years of studying consciousness, the author has identified many tools we can use to alleviate suffering and keep us at the higher end of our happiness spectrum. If you are curious as to how to surf the paradoxes of life, shed fears and prejudices, learn discipline, effectively connect with others, identify constructive activities to vent frustration and live a fulfilling life amidst constant change, then this book will be of immense value to help you navigate the diverse challenges of life. The first half of the book explores our "level of awareness about subconscious beliefs or assumptions so we can get some insight into our 'way of being' in the world." The second half of the book provides valuable tools and steps we can take toward our path of awakening.
More often than not, we are able to examine and identify the methods our parents used in our upbringing that we feel were effective or non-effective. If raising our own children, we might choose to discard methods we feel were ineffective or counterproductive and keep only methods that are empowering and helpful. Conscious parenting is a recent field of study that has resulted in the publication of books that broaden our awareness and facilitate new perspectives that allow us to not only make better decisions as parents but allow us to experience our own personal growth in tandem with our children. By understanding the dynamics and implications of our own childhood, the author invites us to heal ourselves and take a deeper look at the long lasting effect our actions have on our children and those in which we interact.
Forgiveness is a key component of our happiness. By recognizing that all who have wronged us were doing their best with the level of consciousness they had to work with, we are able to release resentment and heal ourselves. The author states that, "The goal of this book is to help us become conscious of each of our individual paths and provide new tools for procuring the unconditional love we crave, so that we can avoid being ardent and cruel - to ourselves and others - on our journeys."
There are many valuable aspects of this book to contemplate regarding authenticity and embracing your shadow self. How do you blow off steam and keep your life manageable? We all have our own methods of dealing with stress. Are we able to choose positive methods of dealing with stress like meditation, yoga, exercise, art or music, or do we choose addictive unhealthy behaviors that simply sweep the problems under the rug to be dealt with at a later date? This book "is devoted to helping you decide who you want to be and what life you wish to live, and to giving you tools to accomplish your goals."
"Buddhism today is best regarded as a prescription to help us alleviate the suffering our minds inadvertently create when they try to prolong ephemeral pleasure and avoid inevitable pain," says the author. By utilizing eastern philosophy and Buddhist wisdom, How to Survive Your Childhood Now That You're an Adult provides us with context, understanding and methods to not only make sense of life but to thrive and add value to it.

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”
Yogis have known the importance of the breath for thousands of years. The ancient sages taught us that “prana”, the vital force circulating through us, can be cultivated and channeled through a spectrum of breathing exercises.
Learning to breathe consciously and with awareness can be a valuable tool in helping to restore balance in the mind and body. Utilize the Breath video to create a controlled meditative breath.

It's no secret that our minds become preoccupied with everyday happenings; get the kids up and ready for school on time, quickly run to the grocery store and the bank before flying home to prepare meals and finish folding the laundry. It's time to take a breathe and ask; Am I being "mind full" or mindful?
Great spiritual leaders throughout time, like yogis, shamans, mystics and others, connect to a realm of universal peace, which exists at a higher frequency. By evolving consciousness through yoga and meditation, we are able to rise above the daily grind, and find peace in just existing.
frequencyRiser offers the tools needed to elevate to a higher level of awareness.
When we exist at a higher frequency all aspects of life become powerfully sublime.
Where do we start? What do we do to find inner peace? Below are some books to help you on your journey to enlightenment.
