Badass Habits: Cultivate the Awareness, Boundaries, and Daily Upgrades You Need to Make Them Stick,” by Jen Sincero
New York Times bestselling author Jen Sincero gets to the core of transformation: habits–breaking, making, understanding, and sticking with them.
Badass Habits is a look at how our habits make us who we are, from the measly moments that happen in private to the resolutions we loudly broadcast (and, , often don’t keep) on social media. Habit busting and building goes way beyond becoming a dedicated flosser or never showing up late again–our habits reveal our unmet desires, the gaps in our boundaries, our level of self-awareness, and our unconscious beliefs and fears.
This new book includes interviews with people who’ve successfully strengthened their discipline backbones, new perspective on how to train our brains to become our best selves, and offers a simple, 21-day, step-by-step guide for ditching habits that don’t serve us and developing the habits we deem most important.

From the author of “Outrageous Openness” and “It’s Not Your Money,” comes a new oracle card deck that helps readers put her teachings into practice.

So many people push toward their goals, chase the means to meet their needs, and yearn for an ever-elusive feeling of security. Fear and worry are constant.

The result can bring freedom, spaciousness, and yes, even a sense of security unavailable any other way. Aligning with Divine Source as the foundation of All is the key.
Drawing inspiration from her book “It’s Not Your Money,” this deck contains 52 quotes that will help readers reflect on their relationship to money, career, and abundance.

“Release: Create a Clutter Free and Soul Driven Life,” by Peggy Fitzsimmons
Most of us are overwhelmed by stuff that is not essential to our lives and is out of alignment with our true spiritual nature. Although our souls are inherently free, we also have an ego mind that orients us toward fear, scarcity, self-preservation, and holding on. With the ego mind in the driver’s seat of our lives, we accumulate clutter. Physical clutter is the most obvious, but we are also burdened with mental, emotional, energetic, and relationship clutter.
All forms of clutter reflect the same thing; a soul not being true to itself. This book provides practical strategies to release clutter in your inner and outer environments and create a more soul-directed life. It introduces the skills of presence, mindfulness, resonance, and inspired action to put you on the road to freedom; free to live with only the things that help you share your love with the world in your unique ways.
