“You change the rules or you are going under.”
Imagine a life where no one can intimidate you, where you
have an invisible sense of knowing who you are, a life where you
are no longer fighting for the right to be alive.
Are you willing to change the rules? Are you playing games
with people in your life who do not have your best interests at
heart? Are you afraid of what you want most? Do you want to know
who you really are? Do you want to feel empowered and healed
spiritually? Do relationships make you feel needy?
One of the most beautiful spiritual gifts anyone has given me
was introducing me to the Caroline Myss Self-Esteem CDs. As
normal in my life, the angels appear when I am drifting off my
own spiritual path and need information to help me get back on
During the time when I received these CDs, I was devastated
by a question I had asked and an answer I had received. I
literally awoke into a new reality. My only thought was:
“I’m going to die if I don’t break the chains of needing
this person to need me and to approve of me.” I had no idea my
self was being born nor that I was going to “meet myself.”
Staying unconscious was sure a lot more fun! Caroline seems to
agree. While I think staying unconscious is a more relaxed
state, it is exciting to grow and turn into the person you are
supposed to become.
The fact is, at some point, I had stopped living for myself
and started to live for the approval of one person. A person who
gave me occasional approval, but would also occasionally
withhold approval when I needed it most. Until I listened to
these CDs, I did not realize what was happening or why I needed
a particular person’s approval. Caroline says you were not
born for anyone, but yourself.
When Caroline Myss says: “seriously negative feedback” I
knew exactly what she was saying. I was experiencing an almost
daily immersion in “self-imposed torment.”
What was even more interesting was how Caroline explained
that at times heaven will not allow a person to give us the
approval we crave, so we can learn to depend on ourselves or we
can be more open to listening to guidance and praying.
You will learn the details of why:
1. People with healthy self-esteem heal faster.
2. The old view of self-esteem differs from the new view.
3. Wars are started due to lack of self-esteem.
4. Meditation is not the only answer.
5. People around you won’t celebrate your empowerment.
6. Knowledge is not a spiritual practice.
7. Standing up for yourself can change your entire life.
8. We destroy others to compensate for our own fears.
9. Our greatest fears are being alone and abandoned and how we
Before I listened to these CDs, I was a butterfly, but a
butterfly with cords attached to other’s approval. I could
only fly once they approved of me. Now, I am going to fly on my
own and follow my heart. I don’t want to be tied down by my
fear, nor do I want to live a mediocre life.
Caroline’s teachings are healing, beautiful gifts for your
soul. Heal your life, heal your friendships, start giving love
instead of always asking for love.
An Empowering, healing, spiritually electrifying journey. If
you want to be primarily responsible for your spiritual growth
and understand how to create the empowered self, these CDs will
help you in your search for understanding self-esteem on the

Try to stay awake with this music, November 10, 2005
Mesmerizing ringing tones mingle with deep earth
vibrations. A voice echoes in a underground cave and appears and
disappears. The vibrations all seem to be felt in my head as the
ringing sounds capture my full attention.
This seems to be designed so you are paying full attention at
the start and then the music sinks you into a deep relaxed state
where you may even fall asleep. What this actually feels like is
your mind riding waves of energy into a state of complete soul

The Acne Prescription
The Omega Connection, July 29, 2004
Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food. ~Hippocrates
Dr. Nicholas Perricone is a pioneer in reversing skin damage and
has finally solved one of the mysteries of my life. When I lived
with my grandmother, she cooked salmon on a weekly basis and we
always ate tuna fish sandwiches on a regular basis. Then, I got
married and my husband insisted that I stop cooking fish because
he disliked it. That was when my skin changed. For years, I've
wondered about the effects of diet on our skin and The Acne
Prescription reveals the need for advanced care and a healthy
dose of antioxidants and Omega 3 supplements. He explains how
skin disorders are caused by a systemic inflammatory disease and
explains the details of sebaceous glands and how corneum cells
block pores. I learned about oxidative stress, foods to avoid,
foods to get into my diet fast and why I should look for creams
After reading this book, I went to the grocery store and found
some Wild Alaskan Salmon which was on sale for 97 cents a pound.
I baked the entire fish and tried to follow the three day diet
in which you eat mostly salmon. The diet in this book is filled
with tasty choices from the sea. If you enjoy scallops, salmon,
crab, tuna and shrimp, you will love this diet. I also purchased
the pomegranate juice as recommended and you can normally find
it in the produce section of your local grocery store.
Other moments of enlightenment occurred while reading about how
chocolate can cause your skin to break out, but it is more the
sugar than the actual cocoa butter. So, I did not notice any
changes in my skin after eating a Hershey's Low Carb bar and
then this book even made more sense. It is the sugar, not the
cocoa. Another great product he recommends is Pycnogenol which
can be rather expensive, but seems to work very well.
Overall, this book emphasizes the need for antioxidants,
essential fatty acids and a healthy lifestyle. Avoiding stress
is essential and a series of yoga postures are recommended.
At least a third of this book is filled with tasty skin-clearing
Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon, Seared Tomatoes, Asparagus and
Lemon Olive Oil Hollandaise
Spiced Diver Scallops with Ecuadorian Tabouleh and Lemon Myrtle
Pomegranate Citrus-Glazed Apricot and Garlic Roasted Chicken
with Apple-Spinach Stuffing and Garden Vegetables
So, this all sounds very gourmet, but the ingredients are
relatively easy to find and the directions are uncomplicated.
The recipes were all created by executive chef Bernard Guillas.
The glossary is excellent and if you read one book on how to
care for your skin from the inside out, this should be it.
This book is more about lifestyle change than a quick solution.
I have only read one other book that is on this level and that
is The Metabolic Plan. With those two books in hand, you will
have a wealth of information and also understand why lifestyle
changes will improve your health. Nicholas Perricone, M.D. has
included so many solutions to the problem of Acne that I can
only say I'll be reading this book over and over again. Even if
you just suffer from occasional breakouts this book will give
you the information you need to encourage a clear, glowing
complexion. Many of the ideas in this book will also help you
live a more healthy life. I definitely want to read all of Dr.
Perricone's books. He really is an expert on antiaging and

The Wrinkle Cure
, June 4, 2009
Over the years I've read most of Dr. Perricone's amazing books.
He really is ahead of his time and "The Wrinkle Cure"
was his first book so I thought I'd read it too. While some of
the information in this book appears in his more recent books it
is still helpful and provides excellent information on skin
rejuvenation at the most basic level.
If you have crow's feet, upper lip lines, dark under-eye
shadows, jowls, sagging skin, enlarged pores, acne scars or dull
skin then this tiny book can show you the way to radiant
youthful skin. This book is still relevant almost ten years
after it was first published. Dr. Perricone sees wrinkled skin
as a disease you can fight and gives you the knowledge you need
to combat aging skin.
"The Wrinkle Cure" also explains the biology behind
Dr. Perricone's beliefs. He explains how wrinkles actually form
and explains the topic of free radicals especially well. It is
helpful to also know that skin creams with collagen in them are
ineffective because the collagen molecule is too large to
penetrate the skin.
This book discusses the importance of alpha lipoic acid, DMAE,
hyaluronic acid, Coenzyme Q 10 and Pycnogenol. It also talks
about how vitamin C ester boosts collegen production. Along the
way you will also discover the secret of Cleopatra's milk baths
and why sugar accelerates the aging process. Unlike most doctors
Dr. Perricone is in favor of daily supplements.
If you really want to see improvements in your skin's health
then I can recommend this book highly. I've been following Dr.
Perricone's advice for years and have noticed my skin is
clearer, wrinkle-free and more radiant.
