Inspiring True Story Captures the Vivid Memories and Near-Death Experiences of Inventor and Former Beach Boys Musician
A Powerful Journey Toward the Realization of Love and His Invention of the Heart+ App Helping Humanity Move from Fear to Love
"Is it possible that love is the foundation of all life, and that science is now proving what the mystics and saints from nearly every spiritual tradition have been saying for thousands of years? Robert Williams' amazing book not only asks important questions about the evolution of humanity, but he gives answers that shouldn't surprise anyone - that Love is indeed the only power in the universe. And what happens when a small percentage of people on the planet activate that power and extend it into the world? The answer is simple, and it's in this book.”
-James Twyman, NY Times Bestselling Author and Peace Troubadour
Los Angeles, CA, October 17, 2017 — What happens when we live all emotions, thoughts and body feelings as love as opposed to just searching for love? We are free to give to others without need or fear. That love is the power and pure heart consciousness.
In Love Is the Power, Robert O. Williams leads readers into the intimate journey of his life through the vivid memories of his unique childhood, an inspiring account of his talent and perseverance as a saxophone player, his introduction to Transcendental Meditation (TM), his magical time performing and recording with The Beach Boys, and the extraordinary journey through multiple near-death experiences and visits with other dimensions which culminated in three decades of research and invention of Quantum Code Technology™ and the One08 Heart+ App.
The One08 Heart+ App significantly reduces stress by more than 30% and opens the heart chakra, helping move humanity from fear to love. Peace Troubadour James Twyman is the ambassador of the One08 Heart+ App.
Williams said, "The fact that we were able to develop a proven technology to strengthen our physical hearts as well as serve in the awakening of our spiritual hearts is, for me, an indication that we truly can raise consciousness through technology.”
Readers will be transfixed as they learn of Williams' numerous near-death and out-of-body experiences, which showed him the answer to the purpose of humanity: to realize love. Love Is the Power is not about the search for love, romantic or otherwise; rather, it is about being love.
At a young age, Williams had the ability to see auras and the capacity for clairvoyance. He tuned into the natural world the way not many others have. In Love is the Power, he shares a valuable message, simple yet necessarily vast to its core. The unfolding of his story is stirring and uplifting in its ability to relate to the reader in a way that finds beauty, depth and insight in even what seems the most trivial, or the most challenging life experiences.
The natural world was Williams' muse as a young child, connecting with nature spirits and a close spirit friend. With the onset of adolescence came the vanishing of these beings, resulting in Williams' anger, frustration and serious and mysterious physical ailments. Music became an unexpected replacement, as playing the saxophone was now an obsession. While in college he was deeply touched by a photo of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi that would forever change the course of his life. He decided to attend Maharishi International University in Iowa.
Williams' extraordinary talent playing the saxophone eventually landed him his dream job of touring with The Beach Boys. Williams' search for spirituality reached a pivotal moment when he learned that despite years of dedication to the saxophone, a physical disability would prevent him from playing the instrument he loved for extended periods of time. It was his search for the rekindling of the spirituality of his childhood and his love of music, the "carrier waves of pure heart love,” that led him to discover TM. This discovery was crucial to the events that would happen next: nearly dying multiple times, clear vision and communication with his guru, revelations of sacred geometry, and travels through the dimensions. Uncovering the ultimate Law—Love, Devotion, Surrender—is icing on the cake. Williams' tenacity and wisdom of the scientific relation between the physical and metaphysical worlds resulted in QCT™ to move humanity from fear to love—making the world a better place. www.loveisthepower.com

I'm the headline story of Bill Zwecker's entertainment column in the Chicago Sun Times today!
A Jersey girl with a dream, Kerri Walker spent a year in Europe after graduating from college and fell in love with the Rhône-Alpes region in France. Determined to earn enough to one day return to the region for good, she set her sights on landing a job with a much higher income.
After a series of traditional jobs fell short of her expectations, Walker turned to exotic dancing, and along the way she learned valuable lessons that she now shares in Fearless! An Exotic Dancer's Guide to Personal and Professional Success.
Part memoir, part how-to, Fearless! follows Walker's journey as a dancer from the shore town clubs of New Jersey to some of the busiest establishments in New York City. She offers straightforward advice about the work itself and the people who inhabit the world of exotic dancing, from managers and bouncers, to other dancers and customers. Walker's approach is raw, candid and, most importantly, helpful for anyone considering a career in this lucrative but challenging industry.
