Dr. Michael Hoffman wrote The Thirsty Addict Papers for the thousands of counselors searching for practical wisdom and how-to instruction on enlivening spirituality in the delicate process of recovery. This is the first book to apply the diverse fields of Jungian depth psychology, Buddhist mindfulness practice, mythology and folklore, cognitive behavioral therapy and contemplative prayer to addiction. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous opened the door; now The Thirsty Addict Papers offers new knowledge for readers with open minds. Stories of courage combine with stark clinical facts about struggles with sobriety and death from self-destructive addiction. As Dr. Hoffman traces the roots of obsessive-compulsive behavior back to their ancient origins, The Thirsty Addict Papers provides a roadmap for expanding consciousness and enlivening the human soul. It is a provocative psychological work and a must-have reference for anyone struggling to find a way out of the nightmare of addiction.
The needs of the self-aware are different. Many of us are overly empathic, and many are extra sensitive to certain foods, medicines, situations, and people.
If you have physical or emotional ailments, are overweight, have allergies, or are inexplicably lethargic, unfocused, or feeling lost, there is a reason. Your energetic sensitivities likely have caused you to take on the pain, unhappiness, and other disease of the people around you. Self-Care for the Self-Aware provides a solution specifically tailored for you and your uncommon healing needs.
If you've done way too many traditional, alternative, or complementary healing modalities and at best have only achieved temporary relief, Self-Care for the Self-Aware is for you. You'll learn a process specific to the self-aware to heal ourselves, so we can better serve others.

Most of us have been taught a lie. A lie that says everything which is good and worthwhile is outside of you and you must find it there externally. The lie says that all acceptance, validation, love, approval and joy must be given to you, by someone else and found somewhere else. You are not alone in accepting this lie, the majority of the world population also shares this belief in this lie with you. The lie is, it is not outside of you, or with anyone else, or somewhere else. The truth is all the love, acceptance, validation, approval, and joy is waiting for you within.
You can fulfill you, validating yourself through acceptance, love, approval, and joy, and do not have to look outside yourself for it. An overflowing source is ready for you to tap into. This can empower you, create confidence, the ability to be in any situation, with any type of person, and you will no longer need them to empower you because you were already doing it for yourself. When you do receive love, acceptance, validation, approval, or joy from another, it becomes a sharing experience that is not required to meet a need.
This book was created to awaken you to be open to the messages of the Animal Kingdom that may help lead you through life. Totem animals are the energetic representation of an animal, the animal’s spirit. Their basic foundations of inner peace and innocence already teach us so much about who we are as humans, our journey, and how to progress forward. Use this book to receive insight—look up your favourite animals, look up your pets, look up the creatures that you fear. All of these animals have messages that bear meaning for you.
This book was written with the intention to awaken, inspire, and heal you by bringing forth wisdom that the totem animal kingdom contains. Totem animals really do bridge the gap between the physical and spiritual world for a lot of people. Animals are something real in their physical world, so they can relate far easier to the spiritual wisdom of an animal than an angel or ascended master. People need something in their physical reality as evidence before they believe in something or relate to it. Most totem animal spirits have a physical representation alive here on the planet for us to connect with, which makes it far easier for people to be open to and accept their spiritual aspect.

Apply your best to every task set before you. Treat every encounter as it were the most important. Leave everything else up to GOD!
The hope of tomorrow …
When I first started writing my feelings down, I was doing it just for me. I felt like if I didn’t get this brutal pain out of me, I was going to just die. Time after time, I tried to express to myself this terrible pain that was consuming my life. Before my son Ryan’s death, I was always the kind of person who chose to always see the hope in tomorrow.
In the very beginning of my grief journey, when I was living and breathing the pain to the point I couldn’t even catch my breath, the tomorrows came and I did not even know it. And to tell you the truth I did not want or care to know it. But tomorrow has a funny way of doing that. I hated tomorrows and wanted no part of them. And all I wanted to do was to stay in the pain of losing my child.
Well, I am happy to admit I no longer see it that way at all. I love tomorrows now, and I can actually feel the joy tomorrow brings. This feeling did not happen overnight, and it was a long road to get to this place called tomorrow. I do not know if it will happen for you. I do know this—it can happen. And when it does happen, it will be in the way you choose to view it and that, my friend, is for every person to make the choice.
After a few years of writing down my feelings, I realized I was actually writing a book of my pain and sorrow over Ryan’s death. Whenever I went to go buy a book to try to see myself in it, I had a hard time finding the one that said it just right for me. So I wrote the book that I wanted to read—the kind of book that said it without prettying it up with fancy words to make it more palatable for the world to see. I just wanted to write a book I would read. I wanted my book to be real and to express the many different sides of grief. And in doing that I expressed the many different sides, allowing everyone who is grieving a child to find their self-validation no matter where they choose to look.
Messages from the Enochian Tablets will challenge conventional wisdom and traditional thinking and may have you questioning everything you thought you knew about our existence. “When God first spoke to the angels, He created the ‘Enochian Tablets’ to explain the duties of the angels. Over time, the tablet became a manuscript on how to better serve God and his plan for ‘all that is, was, and will be.’”
A Lightworker’s Guide to Energetic Clearing, the second portion of this two-part book, explains ways to accelerate your spiritual path. Along with channeled writings and healing symbols from the Enochian Tablets, this book includes original information about raising the vibrations of crystals, a pendulum energy reading and clearing system, deactivation codes to clear and restructure complex energy, and intuitive-energy healing methods.
Diana Kushenbach brings the uniqueness of her experiences as a retired police officer and an earth angel, working her spiritual path, to bring a new perspective to how we view our connection to God/Creator/Source and to bring the planet to a higher vibration.

“Michael Thompson has brought to life the Mississippi of my youth, complete with small town scandals, murders, prison, and the powerful southern female. Sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy a glass of sweet tea and a romping good tale.”
Carolyn Haines, author of the on-going Sarah Booth Delaney mystery series.
“If you love southern gossips and party lines and communal mail, you’ll feel right at home in Solo, Mississippi…biblical in its proportions, with a revolving Episcopal pulpit, a moonshine-swilling postmaster and a murdering villain. Jesus, Martha, Mary, John the Baptist, Satan—what a place!”
Rheta Grimsley Johnson, author of Enchanted Evening Barbie & the Second Coming, and other books.
“In The Parchman Preacher, Michael Thompson has written a true southern story of tragedy, darkness, and destiny with unpredictable twists and turns and genuine characters that provide comic relief in the midst of malevolent schemes…a page turner…we loved it.”
Janet and Reverend John Sartelle, author of What Christian Parents Should Know About Infant Baptism.
“The Parchman Preacher penetrates the facades of southern cultural Christianity to take us to the true gospel…There is no Savior but Jesus and no salvation from the judgment of God but faith in Christ alone.”
