Jamie's Other Books:
My quest to understand wellness began after my journey with cancer and other life-threatening ailments. Although I read all the right books by all the best authors, their wise advice had not helped me. With two young sons and an unpromising family history, I knew I had to change something, and fast.
One night, I locked myself in the bedroom, vowing not to come out until I had the answers I sought. I prayed that God would not only help me to find a way to wellness, but that it would be easy enough to understand for a then novice like me. I also promised to teach others the methods I sought.
Using little stickie notes on posterboard, I allowed information to flow through me. When I finished, I found clues to the answers I sought and realized that my suffering had not been in vain. My ailments had a profound purpose and a message of hope. I had not understood earlier in my journey how to interpret those messages, but now I did.

My first memory of prayer goes back as far as toddler-hood, where a small pottery plaque hung above my bed with the Golden Rule. I would often ask my mother what it said. Around that same time, a relative gave me two small prayer books from which I memorized a bedtime rhyme that I have said throughout my life.
Prayer has always been such an integral part of everything that I do, it is second nature to me. I had put the prayer keys that I used daily into a series of emails that were sent out mid-2006. An old friend of mine (Duane), heard me talk about them and wanted to read them. However, he didn't have email. So I printed a hard copy for him, and he loved them.
After Duane passed away, I wanted to honor his fond memory somehow, and decided to create and dedicate this book to him.
About the Book:
Prayer Superchargers: The “How to Pray” Book for People Who Need Answers in Today’s Troubled Times is a fast-read book with short stories about the key concepts I use to activate powerful prayers. Many of them will surprise you and make you rethink how you pray.
In this book I share how I found a favorite lost watch; how a car I wanted, but couldn't afford, miraculously ended up in my possesion. I explain how prayer can work in everyday situations, like waiting at a restaurant; and how prayer works whether or needs are great or small.

Having spent months reading and studying the indepth writings of Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, and the more than thirty volumes written by Andrew Jackson Davis for my extended education, I wanted a way to share some of the core Wisdom that I had learned. This book of profound quotes became that means.
Quimby and Davis both believed in a higher knowledge and power that allowed them to heal, even disolving cancerous tumors and helping those bedridden or on crutches to rise again. My goal had been to share the secret of this Wisdom and powerful healing in the book, which I have done to the extent that Davis and Quimby would allow.
Both men were speaking from the beginning of the Spiritualist and New Thought movements, a time before a base of understood language existed to explain this phenomena, therefore, often leaving it to the reader to discover the answer to the Wisdom riddle.
About the Book:
The Wisdom of Emotional Healing: Renowned Psychics Andrew Jackson Davis and Phineas P. Quimby Reveal Mind Body Healing Secrets for Clairvoyants, Spiritualists, and Energy Healers contains 108 pages of quotes from these wise healers and their biographers from the nineteenth century. Some of the quotes will surprise you, some will make you laugh, others will keep you guessing at their true meaning. It is a book to read and meditate upon for deeper insight.
"If medicine is adequate
to the curing of disease,
why are chronic diseases so prevalent?"
Andrew Jackson Davis
"I found that by the power of my own mind
I could change the mind of my patient
and produce a chemical change in the body,
like dissolving a tumor."
Phineas Parkhurst Quimby
A wonderful glimpse into the history, culture, and beliefs of these two men. If you are fans of either, this book will be a must-have as it's easy-to-read format allows the meanings of their writings to become clear. If this is the first you've heard of these reknown psychic healers, then this book is bound to be only the first of pleasurable exploration into healing and Wisdom with Davis and Quimby as your guide.
What Others Are Saying:
History seems to have all but forgotten Andrew Jackson Davis and Phineas Quimby, two giants of nineteenth-century spiritual philosophy and wholistic healing. Their work was foundational to late twentieth-century “New Age” teachings, and yet few have ever read or heard of them. In this beautiful volume Rev. Saloff has selected inspirational and thought-provoking treasures from their works and organized them in a way that both challenges and inspires the reader to personally examine what health and healing mean, physically and spiritually. I have studied Davis for over thirty years, and I find this book to be a wonderful source for some of his most seminal and inspirational thoughts.
~ Tom Cratsley, Associate Director, Fellowships of the Spirit
School of Spiritual Healing and Prophecy, Lily Dale, NY
“Rev. Saloff has created an inspiring compendium of wisdom by some of the nineteenth century’s most profound spiritual thinkers and teachers. The thought-provoking guidance offered in this book is food for the soul and practical knowledge for our daily lives.”
~ Rev. Elaine D. Thomas, Director, Fellowships of the Spirit

THE GRATITUDE BOOK PROJECT®: International Book Project Has More Than 300 People Sharing Their Stories of Gratitude, with National Book Sale Proceeds Benefitting Three Charitable Organizations
EDINBORO, PA – Rev. Jamie L. Saloff, “The Author’s Prophet,” is a co-author in The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude, a collaborative book featuring over 300 authors answering the question “What are you grateful for?” in 200 words or less.
The book shares compelling stories of appreciation and evidence that harnessing the power of gratitude can be a life-changing force. The difference between saying thank you (good manners) and living in gratitude (a great life skill), are illustrated in this inspiring, quick-to-read daily guide.
The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude is not only full of thanks but is also brimming over with testimonials to the people, things, events, and circumstances we so often take for granted.
Saloff’s contribution compares the hardships of life’s tragedies, loss, illness, abuse, and physical pain with the creation of beautiful gemstone jewelry. “We are all diamonds in the rough with the potential of becoming sparkling gems,” she writes. “We can choose to see the abrasions of life as a means to expose our many shimmering facets.”
A cancer survivor and no stranger to loss, illness, and pain, Saloff enjoys encouraging others through her writing and coaching practice to reach for loftier goals by pressing through difficult life situations. A six-time author, healer, and spiritual counselor, she guides authors, coaches, and other professionals desiring to calm the pain, grief, and conflict in their lives so they can “write more, sell more, and be more.” Saloff’s books, including Transformational Healing: Five Surprisingly Different Keys Designed to Redirect Your Life Toward Wellness, Purpose, and Prosperity, also carry forward this theme.
In keeping with the spirit of the project, net proceeds from national book sales will be split among three charitable organizations: Feeding America, Women for Women International and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
