Bestselling inspirational author Wayne Dyer’s classic parable, with a powerful message for achieving happiness here on Earth, now and forever.

How would an intelligent visitor from another planet react to life on Earth? Would we welcome that visitor's presence and views? Are we ready for such an open exchange? Weaving together science fiction, spirituality, and philosophy with wisdom, humor, and plain common sense, Dyer tells the story of two peaceful beings from different worlds who work together to enhance the well-being of all. The gifts that Eykis, an alien traveling from a distant, Earth-like planet, brings to the people of Earth help them see themselves in a new light, and compel them to rethink their negative actions. Her insightful offerings will move you to new emotions, new behaviors, and a new understanding of humankind's limitless possibilities.

Amazing doe not sum up exactly how truly inspiring, captivating, and life changing this book is. Gifts From Eykis, was the first self help book I read and I truly feel I dont have to read any other book because this books is so fulfilling. It brought me to a level of an understanding that we are the driver of your own reality and to except what is. Also, internalization is the key to a fulfilling life journey.

Gifts From Eykis is psychologist Dr. Wayne Dyer's story, set as a science fiction tale, describing the ideals for a healthy and happy life. An Earth traveler, as the story goes, finds himself on another planet in a civilization nearly identical to Earth except that the thought processes of these people are uniquely different. They have highly developed, stable mental/emotional quality to their health. One of these inhabitants, a women named Eykis, comes back to our planet with the Earth traveler to observe human behavior. In doing so she provides insights for the "struggling Earthlings." She teaches them to focus only on those things over which they have control - themselves as individuals. She explains that people should look within rather than relying on and blaming others for problems. "Every-thing in the universe is exactly as it should be," she says, and highly recommends dreaming, fantasy, and the full use of the imagination as a means to mental and emotional good health. Much of what Eykis has to say has been heard before, but Dyer does it in a very simple and fun format. ("Keep it simple," Eykis says of life.) A key to her "teaching" is to first straighten out your "self," and avoid dwelling on the past and future, looking inward for health and happiness. "There is no wav to happiness; happiness is the way," Eykis says in her no-nonsense approach. Gifts From Eykis is a great book for all ages, and also makes a great gift. Eight ways to tap into the power of intention and feel great every day: 1.Make meditation a regular practice in your life. You need to take time to get quiet, to go within, and from this silence make conscious contact with the source of intention. You're already connected to everything that you perceive as missing from your life; go with a realign. 2.Become conscious of the foods you eat. Foods high in alkalinity such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, soy, no yeast breads and virgin olive oil are high-energy foods and will strengthen you, while highly acidic foods such as flour-based cereals, meats, dairy and sugars lower energy and will weaken you. 3.Retreat from low-energy substance. Alcohol, cigarettes, caffeine, sugar and virtually all artificial drugs, legal or otherwise, lower your body's energy level and weaken you. 4.Become aware of the energy level of the music you listen to. Some rap music--filled with profanity and messages about killing, for example--is an energy drain, while music that has a more soothing impact on the soul has been proven to be beneficial. 5.Become aware of the energy levels of your home environment. Make your home a nurturing, cheerful and peaceful environment. 6.Reduce your exposure to low-energy commercial television. Children see 12,000 simulated murders on TV before their 14th birthday! Television news puts a heavy emphasis on the bad and the ugly, leaving out the good. 7.Enhance your energy field with photographs. Every photograph contains energy. Carry and display photos taken in moments of happiness, love and receptivity. 8.Become conscious of the energy levels of your acquaintances, friends and extended family. Choose to be in close proximity to those who are empowering, who see the greatness in you, who feel connected to spirit. It's not what happens around us, or to us, but within us that really counts, but when it comes to applying it. Problems arise in communication when; people do not communicate truthfully. I observed that most people: 1.Live in either past or future. 2.Take a pill to cure things 3.Dissatisfied with themselves 4.Chase success but seem never satisfied 5.Always wanting more of this or that: possessions 6.Suffer from unnatural fears called phobias 7.Do not love self 8.Cannot love others Why do so many go to therapists for help? 1.Anger 2.Procrastination 3.Anxiety 4.Self contempt a.All are neurotic behaviors Why do we use up our precious moments for living by worrying about something which we cannot do anything about? It is pointless. Guilt: if you
