Most people go through life sleepwalking—they do the same routine every day, devoid of meaning or purpose and not accomplishing their life plan. The simple way to end this cycle, according to Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood, authors of the New York Times bestseller The Passion Test, is by embracing your hidden riches.

So, what are your hidden riches? Hidden riches refer to the unique life design that is inside everyone. The key to discovering these riches is to harness the power of rituals. In their new book YOUR HIDDEN RICHES: Unleashing the Power of Ritual to Create a Life of Meaning and Purpose (Harmony Books, on sale October 21, 2014) Janet, Chris, and their coauthor, Sylva Dvorak, Ph.D., explain how readers can use the power of rituals to discover their unique life design and unlock the treasury where their hidden riches lie.

The Attwoods point out that successful people in every area use rituals. Sports stars use rituals to perform at their best. Musicians and artists use them to spark their creativity. Business leaders use them to create cohesive teams and build a company culture. Celebrities use them to maintain a balance between their personal and public lives.

In their new book, Chris and Janet show us that not only can rituals be fun and meaningful, but they’re a time-tested way to manage your time, your energy, and your thinking in this fast-paced, sometimes crazy modern world we live in. By structuring conscious, intentional rituals into your life, you ensure your life has balance. You focus on what’s truly meaningful, and you create deeper connections with the most important people in your life.

YOUR HIDDEN RICHES is a call to reignite the power of personal and community rituals–to sustain us in the midst of an ever-increasing onslaught of information and complexity, and to sustain our world by reawakening the awareness of our interconnection with all life.

In this book readers will learn how to engage with:
• Rituals for Meaningful Relationships—Write out your negative feelings about past relationships and rip them up; find somewhere with wide open space and release the gunk you’re letting go of; begin making room in your life for the lover who isn’t there yet.
• Rituals for Diet, Health, and Beauty—Take time to prepare food in a way that honors its vital place in our lives; replace junk food with healthier foods; treat yourself to pampering rituals like facials.
• Creating Wealth Through Ritual—Identify your passions and design rituals to keep you aligned with what you’re passionate about; set down well-defined incentives and rewards, both for yourself and your team; create rituals that ensure you set and meet financial targets.
• Ceremonial Rituals for the Seasons of Life—Throw a birthday party and write out what you love and respect about each guest (be sincere); honor your children’s transition from one phase of growing up to another through coming-of-age rituals.
• Rituals for a Closer Family Circle—Make meals into family time; at a family gathering take the time to let each person know that they’re appreciated, and why; create rituals that are fun and allow parents and children to be fully engaged with each other, without phones or texts or emails or other distractions.

Embracing ritual shows readers how to finally live the life of health, wisdom, and love that they deserve.
