I Heart Me: The Science of Self-Love
How much love do you have for yourself? Not the narcissistic ‘Aren’t I wonderful’ kind of love, but the essential regard for self that empowers you and helps you navigate through life. The type of love that enables you to feel safe and secure in who you are and inspires you to make choices that are good for your authentic self.
When scientist David Hamilton realized that his own lack of self-love was sabotaging him in hundreds of subtle ways and more than a handful of major ways, he devised an experiment using himself as the guinea pig. For more than a year David studied the latest research into brain chemistry, neuroscience, and psychotherapeutic and personal development techniques. He realized that self-love was as much about biology as psychology – that self-worth is in our genes, but trained out of us. The biological drive to seek connection with others often leads us to try to be ‘someone else’ to win love and approval. But the brain can be reprogrammed, and David devised 27 powerful exercises that he tested on himself and presents in the book to help you:
Increase your own level of self-worth
Connect powerfully with your authentic self
Attain a greater sense of happiness and general wellbeing
Create stronger and more real connections with others

The Contagious Power of Thinking
Wouldn’t it be great if instead of catching a nasty cold, we could catch our friend’s good mood, or our colleague’s healthy habits? You don’t need to be on the Internet to be connected. We are all part of interconnected networks, whether we’re aware of it or not. Everything you think, say and do can be felt by people on the other side of the world. The Contagious Power of Thinking provides astonishing scientific evidence to show how habits, attitudes, emotions and even kindness spread rapidly outwards from person to person through personal contact. Learn the fascinating facts behind:
. how infants feel their mothers’ emotions
. how more than 25% of your happiness is due to the happiness of your friends
. how your brain reads the emotions of others and reproduces the feeling in you
. and how your best friend’s sister’s hairdresser can make you fat!
In this book, Dr David Hamilton explores the amazing implications of this phenomenon and suggests that a small group of committed people really can change the world.
It’s the Thought that Counts: Why Mind Over Matter Really Works
When pharmaceutical scientist Dr David Hamilton observed the results of tests on new drugs, he noticed that patients receiving the control placebo pills reported the same level of improvement as people receiving the actual drug. Seeing this result repeat itself time and time again, he became fascinated by the mind-body connection and started to research the work of scientists, mystics and healers working in this field. The result is this ground-breaking book, in which Dr Hamilton explains how the mind and emotions can influence the wellbeing of our body and even the structure of our DNA. In this edition of David’s influential book he has added information from recent scientific studies and the latest extraordinary evidence about:
. the physical impact of meditation on the body
. why sending thoughts of healing to a person helps them to heal
. how the power of love impacts the growth of cells in the body
. how our thoughts and feelings affect how quickly we heal.
Is Your Life Mapped Out? Unravelling The Mystery of Destiny vs Free Will
These are questions we all ask ourselves, but it’s hard to get past conjecture or gut feeling to find any definitive answers. Now, in this ground-breaking book, David Hamilton looks at hard scientific evidence to bring us closer to understanding the balance between the forces of destiny and the power of free will.
Exploring new, cutting-edge scientific research into the nature of time, and drawing on fields such as quantum physics, epigenetics, solar cycles and even reports of near-death experiences, David explores how, rather than being a question of one versus the other, destiny and free will can in fact work simultaneously in his fascinating new theory, ‘The Tree of Probable Life’. He shows how, ultimately, we create many of the conditions of our own lives and offers some powerful, practical principles that can bring amazing results.

Quantum Field Healing
This CD contains a lecture approximately 40 minutes long followed by a 17-minute Quantum Field Healing guided visualisation. Quantum Field Healing is a visualisation process that guides you through the layers of biology (cells, DNA, atoms, subatomic particles) to imagine an illness, injury, or disease from a quantum perspective instead of a physical perspective.
