Mind Power
This section contains books on "mind power" that don't fit directly into the other sections. See also Dreamwork, Meditation, and Self-Hypnosis.
Creative Visualization
by Shakti Gawain
This book is the best I've found that describes how to use the powerful tool of visualization to get what you want out of life. It includes step by step in structions that anyone can follow to create things and opportunities. Some people would call this magic, but it's really simply tapping into the abundance of the Universe. Similar practices go by many names, but this one is non-denominational and very straightforward. I have personally seen the techniques work in my life. If you want to make things happen in your life, it can't hurt to try these techniques; you have nothing to lose and the Universe to gain.

Silva Mind Control Method
by Jose Silva
Many years ago Jose Silva developed a tested method for taking control of your mind. If you've ever attempted to meditate, you know very well that the mind is an endless chatterbox, and it is very hard to control. Taking control of your mind puts you in the driver seat of your life, and opens many opportunities to learn, grow, propser, heal, etc. This non-religious method of learning how to control your mind is very effective.

Using Your Brain--For a Change
by Richard Bandler
Richard Bandler developed Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a powerful technique and method that can be called an "offshoot" of hypnosis and self-hypnosis. This book outlines specific exercises that anyone can do to gain access to the other 95% of your brain that you normally don't use. The author's writing style is extremely personable and I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to explore the power of the mind.

Developing Intuition : Practical Guidance for Daily Life
by Shakti Gawain
Everyone is born with intuition, explains author Shatki Gawain. The problem is, most people learned to suppress the natural connection to their intuition and were trained to rely solely on their logical, rational mind. "Many people who are not accustomed to being consciously in touch with their intuition imagine that it is a mysterious force that would come to them through some transcendent mystical experience," Gawain writes. "In fact, intuition is a very practical, down-to-earth tool that is always available to help us deal with the decisions, problems, and challenges of our daily lives."
