SANFORD,Fla. – “Care and Feeding of Dragons: Confession of a Diabetic - Beyond Law of Attraction to Align Within”(ISBN 1466323361) by Ahnalira Koan receives the types of reviews that prove a book read-worthy and useful.  Combining the concepts of the "law of attraction" with Jungian psychology and the ancient practice of forgiveness, Ho'oponopono, Koan uses her personal experiences to engage the reader to integrate deeper levels of understanding and success in their personal life journeys.

“When I died,” Ahnalira Koan begins…a head-on automobile accident and a near-death experience that resulted in the onset of type 1 diabetes, her life took a turn she didn’t expect. Amid the struggles to assimilate her health changes, she found herself on a journey of awakening. Transforming her personal tragedy into opportunity, Ahnalira learned how to embrace her fear of the “dragon within” and make it into, not only a friend, but a teacher as well. "All of us are evolving, and the more consciousness we can bring to the process, the more we can expand," explains Koan.  

Author and journalist, Dave Stone, writes in his review:
"The least dramatic and most intellectually appealing topic is about Koan's learning about the more intricate details of the law of attraction. She worked with Jerry and Esther Hicks (Abraham-Hicks Publications) for years and heard their version many times. Although she respected what they were teaching and their efforts to reach out to the public as teachers, she realized that their version left something important out.  The Hicks' teaching that hopping from happy thought to happy thought would deliver your dreams was too simplistic, a sort of spiritual cotton candy. And, of course, she could see, just as she had with her work as a Jungian therapist, that it wasn't really helping people get all the way to what they wanted.

And just as she did with her professional work, she took what she knew was of value in it and kept looking. Her conclusions about the importance of intention and faith are eye-opening.." (for the complete review, go to:

Jeanine Broderick, president of Happiness First, writes:
"The words in this book are so beautiful. The turn of phrase, the new combinations of words she uses to communicate are pure pleasure to read. I believe this is her first book, but I hope it is far from her last.

Reading it is a joy.  Beyond the beauty of her words is great wisdom. I consider myself an expert on Law of Attraction and I am gaining new insights and additional growth in my own understanding. I often read books in this genre, usually I find new approaches to use with my students to help as many people as I can to a fuller understanding. It is far less frequent that I gain a deeper understanding myself. Her wisdom and perspective are helping me deepen my own understanding."

Dan Speziale writes:  
"The lessons that the author shares can be beneficial to anyone struggling with one or many issues in their own lives. As a diabetic, myself, I found it struck a chord with me. In addition, anyone familiar with The Law of Attraction or The Secret might find worthwhile techniques here. I enjoyed the author's personal stories the most, especially when she wrote about her most recent experiences."
