The Complete Master Key System : Using the classic work to discover prosperity, joy, and fulfillment

by Jack Canfield Mark Victor Hansen John Selby William Gladstone Richard Greninger

The Complete Master Key System builds on the classic work of Charles Haanel to teach contemporary audiences how to tap into their personal potential and manifest harmony, abundance, and fulfillment. Published in 1912, The Master Key System went on to influence Ernest Holmes, Napoleon Hill, and many others who sought to use mental power as a means of attaining success. In The Complete Master Key System, William Gladstone, Richard Greninger, and John Selby hark back to Charles Haanel's original text, and develop exercises that heighten readers' ability to implement Haanel's core principles. Their Daily Manifestation Sessions incorporate the most effective focusing methods used today and integrate ancient meditative techniques with new insights in cognitive psychology. The Complete Master Key System is packaged with Haanel's original Master Key System in the appendix and includes a foreword by Mark Victor Hansen and an afterword by Jack Canfield.

Expand This Moment

by John Selby

When John Selby was a graduate student, philosopher and meditation expert Alan Watts challenged him to study the world's meditation traditions from the inside, to identify their common underlying psychological processes, to formulate an approach to meditation based on these commonalities, and to then teach this universal process. Forty years later, in this dramatically different guidebook, Selby fulfills Watts's mandate. Selby has sought solutions to suffering in native cultures around the world and discovered proven techniques for attaining physical and emotional well-being. But the streamlined practice presented here is as much the result of personal breakdown as of academic research. As they did for him in a dark night of the soul, the twelve simple focus phrases Selby presents insert positive messages into our inner dialogue, promoting spiritual development and emotional healing. These brief core statements comprise a root psychological meditative practice that allows anyone to quickly wake up to the present moment -- naturally, pleasurably, and with life-affirming consistency.

Quiet Your Mind

by John Selby

Never before has the psychological whistle been blown so clearly on the detrimental effects of chronic worrying, anxious problem-solving, and the general non-stop mental chatter of our thinking minds. John Selby, researcher, therapist, and educator, points out that we are indeed a nation of unwitting thinkaholics. In his essential new book, Quiet Your Mind, he offers us an easy-to-follow mind-management process through which we can learn to let go of fear-based mental habits and enter a more heart-centered, intuitively-clear, and spiritually-peaceful engagement with everyday life. With solid scientific grounding, yet written in a heart-to-heart tone, Selby offers a precise expose of how anxious thoughts focused on mental judgments, beliefs, and attitudes generate emotions such as irritation, worry, guilt, anger, and despair - leaving little room in our lives for positive spontaneous engagement with the world. In this definitive guidebook, Selby teaches how we can transcend such fear-based ideas and attitudes that hold us back in life, through potent yet easily-mastered techniques to quiet over-busy thoughtflows and nurture more present-moment, love-based mindstates.

Seven Masters, One Path

by John Selby

Finally everyone who wants to learn how to meditate, or to deepen their meditation practice, can turn to one comprehensive guidebook that leads readers gently yet surely into experiencing the seven universal dimensions of daily meditation practice. Seven Masters, One Path guarantees access to deep meditative experience for people seeking relief from emotional and mental stress, and especially for anyone who longs to experience a deeper sense of connection with our spiritual core. No matter how divergent all the theologies, philosophies, rituals, and dogmas of the world's great meditative traditions might appear, John Selby reveals that the underlying intent of the original masters was remarkably similar--to help people to point their attention toward regular contact with the divine, through opening hearts and souls to direct communion with God by whatever name. Offering one meditation each from the seven teachers, Seven Masters, One Path emphasizes the commonalities in the diverse traditions, ultimately providing a unique and accessible meditation program that anyone can master.
