The Secret Code of Success

In The Secret of Success, St. John explains what holds people back from the success they are capable of achieving and what change is needed to get the success they desire.

Americans spend billions of dollars each year on what St. John describes as “shelf-help”, or self-help programs, books, equipment, etc. that is eventually placed on a shelf with the individual making little or no progress toward their desired life changes.  St. John reports that some individuals have spent upwards of tens of thousands of dollars, and still have “their foot on the brake”.  Continue reading

My Current Read is reviewing the Spiritual Teachings of the Avatar by Jeffrey Armstrong.  Armstrong reveals how many of the teachings of the Vedic and Indigenous Cultures are illustrated by Cameron’s film, Avatar.

Aura Reading in Seattle, Washington
