Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. once said, “A mind stretched by a new idea can never go back to its original dimensions.” For a control freak like myself, this is no small matter.

Making Life Better is an invitation to own our part of our making and embrace our unique opportunities to make our lives better. It’s about making our routine and daily choices of action, reaction, thought and feeling more profoundly connected to who we are, what we desire and what’s most important to us. It’s an invitation to turn off our auto-pilot setting and allow our sense of purpose, identity and direction to break into our lives with greater wisdom and clarity. It’s a recognition that a meaningful, fulfilling and happy life is really nothing more (though certainly nothing less) than a very long series of meaningful, fulfilling and happy moments. How we experience each of those moments is always and completely within us.

This Is How I Save My Life:

A True Story of Embryonic Stem Cells, Indian Adventures, and Ultimate Self-Healing Genre/subject: Spirituality, Healing, Travel

by Amy B. Scher

Available from:
Amazon and Barnes&Noble

A fiery young woman with a debilitating and misdiagnosed disease travels to a tiny clinic in India for a controversial embryonic stem cell treatment. On the journey to save her miserably failing body, she finds a world of cultural mayhem, radical medical treatment, and most importantly, a piece of her life that she never even knew she was searching for.

This is How I Save My Life takes readers on a heartwarming and often hilarious journey as Amy grasps at her last hope for health. Why do some people heal from emotional or physical issues, while others don’t? Through extensive research and her own recovery experience, Amy finds the most important piece for her own healing-the impact of unprocessed negative emotions on our physical bodies.

This powerful and uplifting story of sheer determination is for anyone who believes in-or doubts-the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing.


Meet the Author – Amy B. Scher

“While I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, my “big” dream has always been to write a book. I never imagined as a little girl, it would be about this. But, that’s the coolest thing about life. It gets you right to where you need to be, even if it’s a twisty, scary, ride that sometimes seems to be going nowhere.”

Book quote: “Amy’s story needs to be told. She’s truly an enlightened voice of inspiration.” -Joanna Kerns, Actress & Director

Plus research has now proven “genius” is not born – it is actually a created state!

Fear: “It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live” – Marcus Aurelius

Question to Ponder:
How can we see that many of our fears are baseless?

Men and Women: “Marriage is more than finding the right person. It is being the right person’ – Anonymous

Question to Ponder:
Do we prefer to find the right person rather than to be the right person? Why is it easy to idealize someone initially?

As a therapist, I find that clients remark that quotes are helpful for shifting out of feelings of hopelessness or feeling stuck. As a yoga teacher, students find that quotes uplift them and help to maintain levels of peace and wonder.

Some Eastern thinkers speak about attachment. What does that mean?
Do we like to indulge and sink into different unconscious states? If so, why?
What do great minds across history say about our habits and the power of persistence?
How can we break through our stories and assumptions more so that we have humor, joy and wonder each day?

Traffic Signs on the Road of Life


Traffic Signs on the Road of Life

by Wilbur and Cynthia Brower


Available from:

Amazon and Barnes&Noble


Get ready for the ride of your life. Traffic Signs on the Road of Life is an all-encompassing guide of how to navigate through the many obstacles you’re sure to encounter at some point or another. Wilbur and Cynthia Brower break down a variety of situations allowing for a better understanding of what has happened or what is yet to come. You can’t always control a situation, but you can control how you perceive it and react to it. The Browers provide the ultimate guide to achieving this goal.



How Life’s Circumstances and Situations Parallel Traffic Signs

Are you a person who has felt like your life was on a winding road? Did you yield when you were supposed to or even exercise caution? Authors Wilbur and Cynthia Brower are proud to announce the release of their book, “Traffic Signs on the Road of Life,” to help people navigate the highways and by ways of life.

As with many things in life, whether it is riding a bike, going to college or even driving a car, you must know the rules. The Browers teach the reader from the start about the signs; knowing what they are and the basic functions they serve. Readers are taught about the colors and assured that the traffic signs must be simple in order to be understood by all travelers. The history and background the readers are given about signs literally prepare them for what is to follow.

The Browers remind the reader of how often they ignore the traffic signs and show how the same happens on the road of life. People choose to ignore those signs and then wonder why a certain situation has happened. Readers are introduced to the “Pilot Car,” who usually operates in areas where roads are being constructed or repaired. The Pilot Care is responsible for guiding readers safely through construction.

In “Traffic Signs on the Road of Life” readers will learn:
• Our current circumstances and situations do not have to determine the trajectory toward our final destination

• Acute personal and professional awareness can give us a very good gauge of our assets and liabilities and how they will assist or impede us in our life’s journey; and

• Our march toward worthwhile goals often is not without challenges, blocks and setbacks, but our attitude about those encounters will determine how we are likely to fare against them.
“Traffic Signs on the Road of Life” is available at Amazon.com in print and Kindle formats, at Barnes & Nobles in Nook format, and at CreateSpace.com in print format. If you are interested in contacting the authors for an interview, you may reach them at (910) 548-0698, or write them at wlbrower@gmail.com
