Empath: Master Your Emotions - From Overthinking to Positive Thinking: How to Overcome Panic Attacks, Anger, Anxiety and Depression with Cognitive ... by Melody Annesley 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Do you want to understand the balance between honoring your real feeling and experience for socializing with the world? Do you want to learn how to recognize negative thoughts, rationalize them and improve your mood? Being an empath is a wonderful gift. When you are able to handle this gift correctly, it will give you a very satisfying and pleasant life. It is estimated that about 2% of the population anywhere have empath abilities. This makes us quite special, indeed. Empaths are able to not only feel the emotions of people around them but to also understand what is going on. However, it is often difficult to control the overwhelming feelings of other people's emotions, which can cause an emotional rollercoaster of stress and anxiety. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, will try to focus on changing your patterns of thoughts. You will be able to develop an awareness of your thoughts, and you will learn to identify which thoughts are negative and inaccurate so that you may change them. It is common for the normal person to have such thoughts. You may think of yourself lowly, see the world in a more negative way, or fail to see the positive aspects of certain situations. You will learn how to think more realistically. You may understand how others think and act. You will learn more effective ways to behave, to solve problems, as well as how to properly cope with certain situations. This can really help your mental health and help you to live a better life. For those that tend to avoid anything that they are uncomfortable with, unfamiliar with, or fearful of, CBT can also help you to become more confident in yourself. DBT is essential to the reinforcement of positive behavioral changes and skill-building, in order to effectively change your life for the better. DBT helps to regulate your emotions, find healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with stress, how to live in the "now" of the moment, and how to improve your relationships with the people around ...

Farewell, Cavaliers by Cheryl Sawyer (Lume Books) 4.5 Stars (11 Reviews)    Price verified 5 hours ago

London, the winter of 1652. It is almost four years since King Charles I was executed. While Parliament dithers and Oliver Cromwell's impatience mounts, an armed avenger stalks the streets and a series of murders threatens the highest echelons of government. At the core of the mystery is Thomas Darke. He may be a colonel in Parliament's victorious army, but his one obsession is with a crime: the assassination of Colonel Rainsborough, the army's foremost radical. He may work as a waterman on the Thames, but his secret activities touch the realms of power, where royalist still contends against parliamentarian and where John Thurloe, Cromwell's spymaster, strives to lay hands on the fatal avenger. Darke may even tempt the heart of the beautiful Alice Hull -- but can she give herself to a man whom death seems to pursue like a familiar? This taut tale of revenge explores new aspects of two shocking events during the struggle for democracy in England: the assassination of Colonel Rainsborough in 1648, and the invasion of the House of Commons on 20 April 1653, when Parliament was dissolved in a military coup. Above all it is an ingenious ghost story, following a driven, vengeful spirit through the intimate and vivid lives of the people of London as he discovers, paradoxically, what it is to be human. Have the cavaliers underestimated Darke's determination to avenge the crime he witnessed all those years ago? Farewell, Cavaliers is the sequel to The Winter Prince and is the second thrilling installment of the Terror and Awe: England's Revolution series. Praise for Cheryl Sawyer 'Cheryl Sawyer weaves an excellent story and creates fabulous characters that stay with you long after you finish the book.' Historical Novel Society Praise for The Winter Prince 'Hardcore history buffs will appreciate the fly-on-the-turret view of the dramas besieging the British royal court in 1642, when the country is rocked by civil war.' Publishers Weekly 'The depiction of ...

It's been a while since I've read a short science fiction novel that had me hooked from start to finish. The setting is beautifully explored with just the right amount of haunting and cruel undertones. I also really liked the protagonist and felt her responses in the different situations she faces were very realistic. I really hope there would be a second book in this series. -- TheDigressiveApproach This was absolutely wow, holy crap, fantastic, OMFG heck of read. It starts all creepy and with a bang and the pace doesn't let up even at the end. It is listed as Sci-Fi/Fantasy but I think it's safe to say it was a heck of a thriller too.
