It's an Inside Out World by Author Lori Carpenos, LMFT is now available at

WEST HARTFORD, CT, USA, March 23, 2016 / — Author Lori Carpenos, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in West Hartford, CT, recently published, "It's an Inside-Out World" which is available for purchase at The book was written to help teens find peace of mind, more satisfaction and contentment by guiding them to explore a new paradigm of reality that enhances and improves the way they relate to themselves and one another. The paradigm shift is real, but the story line of the book is fictional as follows:

Two girls, who are learning about the effects of feelings and emotions and how they originate, do a test to discover whether feelings come from inside or outside themselves. As they see how to calm their minds, they begin to realize that fresh, new, positive thoughts naturally take the place of insecure thinking. They learn that they don't have to take other peoples' thinking personally because they are free to create their own reality. There is unlimited potential and the free will to choose which thoughts to act upon and which thoughts to let go.

Author Lori Carpenos points young people directly to the natural happiness and good feeling that are born into each and every person. This "inside out" path means no fixing, no focusing on problems, no trying to figure things out. Rather readers "wake up" to their own well-being and a fresh view of life! What a rare opportunity to not only discover health inside but to discuss anything immediately with Lori via her blog. A genuine connection like this has unlimited possibilities!
Kathy Marshall Emerson, Executive Director, National Resilience Resource Center

Lori has helped many, many people find happiness within. She now introduces us to two teenagers who do their own experiments to uncover the inside out nature of life. Find out their results, then try these experiments for yourself and see how this understanding benefits you!

About the 3 Principles
The book is inspired by the 3 Principles of Mind, Thought, and Consciousness, discovered by Sydney Banks in 1973. The 3 Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness, are simple words with simple definitions, yet their implications for humanity are limitless and profound. Their formlessness speaks to the source of reality, before all ideas and concepts, beliefs and belief systems.

Mind: The formless energy and intelligence of all Life.

Thought: The ability to create images and form ideas. The tremendous gift we have as human
beings to create our own emotional realities.

Consciousness: The ability to be aware of reality and of how reality is created for each of us.

These Three Principles work in unison from the inside out, creating each and every person’s
reality. They are always at work within us, whether we are aware of them or not.
When people recognize the Principles at work in themselves, they gain freedom and clarity.
They gain the ability to live life with grace and creativity, because they see that the external world holds no power over their peace of mind. Peace of mind comes from within, from a deeper, quieter source of Thought.

Everyone has access to insight, wisdom, and common sense. Stability, well-being, and personal security are our birthright, regardless of circumstances. When people realize they create their own mental suffering via the Principles, they begin to realize the resilience, wisdom, beauty, and genuine potential for a gratifying life that lies within them—beyond their limited, personal thoughts.

If you are looking for a way to help teenagers and young adults find a new way to deal with life’s challenges, you will love the metaphors introduced in this book. The book illustrates the sacred event of bringing formless energy into the world of form; and that we all have the power to choose how our own reality unfolds, as we walk the line between our spiritual essence and our physical existence in the best possible manner, using our gift of thought to enhance life rather than diminish it. This realization provides positive mental and emotional empowerment for teens, at the time in their lives when they are often feeling vulnerable or insecure. Any teen or adult who reads this book will learn that their personal thinking is a divine gift that allows them to think anything, and that they have the free will to choose which thoughts they act on and which ones they let go.
