Read this book! We are living at a time when people are searching
for answers to fundamental questions in their lives. This book can
be, if applied, a road map to personal enlightenment and
empowerment. I believe it can 'tune in' the frequency you are
currently operating on. More important, it helps you see that you
can manifest change.

-- Lynne McTaggart, author of The Field and The Intention Experiment More and more people are reaching out today in search of answers to life. Sometimes the search is to understand relationships, improve performance, or become successful--unfortunately, most people look outside of themselves for both the answers and the best actions. They excuse themselves with rationalizations. If only the universe would give me a break. If only he or she would change. If only I had been born differently, and so on. If you've found yourself somewhere in life where you don't want to be, then read Choices and Illusions.
-- Marci Shimoff, professional speaker and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Happy for No Reason, Love for No Reason, and Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul When you realize just how much of your actions are automatic and how many of your choices are actually made by your subconscious, you understand the illusion we all have lived most of our lives!

-- Steven Halpern, composer/recording artist and pioneering sound healer Taylor has reached the mind-magic fulcrum by creating a matrix for shifting perceptual reality. A bold work! The extent that consciousness pervaded the landscape of inquiry above life itself is indeed the frontier of evolutionary science.

-- Dawson Church, Ph.D., author of The Genie in Your Genes I thoroughly enjoyed Eldon Taylor's work of wisdom. It will lead the reader to a glimpse of the 'Open Mind, ' which merges science and spirituality.
-- Vijayendra Pratap, Ph.D., D.Y.P., founder/director of the Yoga Research Society and the SKY Foundation; director of the yoga program, Jefferson-Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine; and author of Beginning Yoga Transformationally insightful and thought provoking, Dr. Eldon Taylor's Choices and Illusions examines the most basic assumptions we hold and take for granted. Dr. Taylor clearly elucidates how our thought patterns and beliefs impact our realities; shape our futures; and contribute to our self-esteem, happiness, success, and fulfillment--or to the lack of these desirable qualities. His fresh perspectives regarding the many assaults we receive from the outside world daily and how the invisible paradigms we are subject to limit our joy, personal power, and ability to step into our potential open up an entirely new world of possibilities for our growth and development. Dr. Taylor is one of the foremost philosophers of our time, and his book is a great contribution to empowering our lives and sourcing our magnificence. I strongly recommend it.
-- Dr. Joe Rubino, CEO, The Center for Personal Reinvention, and author of The Self-Esteem Book I have known and admired Eldon Taylor for over 20 years. When we were struggling to build America's first National Judo Institute in Colorado, Eldon called to discuss the psychological progress of our athletes. He volunteered to visit us at his own expense to create a subliminal audio program for our Judo champions. We worked out the affirmations with Eldon's help and used the program a great deal. That audio program was, I believe, an important factor in our winning first place in America as a team for several years, securing several spots on the 1992 U.S. Olympic Judo Team, and Kate Donahoo's fifth place finish in those Olympics.
Now I am very excited about Dr. Taylor's new book, Choices and Illusions. To me, it not only gives the scientific background we need to understand how subliminal learning takes place, but it also ties our minds in with the only logical explanation of reality I know. It simply proves to me again, in a scientific and wonderful way, how our minds are part of the one reality, and how we are inhibited from realizing that reality by our conditioning, attitudes, and beliefs. Then the book goes on to let us know how we can return home to our true nature. I don't believe there is a more important book on human happiness than Choices and Illusions.
-- Philip S. Porter, founder, United States Martial Arts Association; Major, United States Air Force (Retired); United States Military Academy, West Point, class of 1948 I think few today would deny the connection between the body and mind--particularly with respect to one's mental and physical well-being. Dr. Taylor has gone into intricate detail to show some of the deeply hidden ways in which we 'create' our successes and disappointments in life. But most of all, he shares how we might all consciously design the life we truly desire and proceed to achieve it. En route, he points out that we are likely to experience 'tests'--and, in fact, a never-ending series of tests that are the source of our continuing learning and growth. And somewhere along this journey--independent of age--he suggests we quite naturally discover a deeper dimension of ourselves, the spiritual. Finally, Dr. Taylor points out discovering that wholeness--body, mind, and spirit--within ourselves is the true source of happiness. Along this journey of continually discovering happiness, he discusses the detailed workings of the mind and suggests ways we can transform our deeply ingrained fears into empowering, motivating beliefs about ourselves. The result is a book that will not only change your perspective of life, but also result in a deeper understanding, empathy, and compassion for others. I highly recommend Choices and Illusions--it's a must read!
-- William A. Guillory, Ph.D., founder of Innovations Consulting and author of several books, including The Living Organization: Spirituality in the Workplace Why do we have such a difficult time making and sticking with changes we wish to incorporate in our lives? A challenging question, indeed, and it's been addressed by many self-help gurus and spiritual groups. Although well intentioned, few actually succeed in 'helping' others to help themselves. They inspire for a brief moment, but the changes rarely kick in and stay put!
Choices and Illusions explains not only why this phenomenon happens repeatedly, but actually provides a pathway around the subconscious saboteur that impedes one's progress. Dr. Eldon Taylor, a well-respected expert in the field of subliminal communication, leads the reader into a place of simplified understanding of the discipline that brings an end to the war between the heart and the head, between spirit and science. In a time when we're desperately seeking a balance between the dualities in our lives, Choices and Illusions provides a true recipe for success, sans the confusion which often accompanies the arrogance of intellectualism. There isn't a person alive who wouldn't benefit from this read!
