Perfect 4 out of 4 stars Review by Marena363

Beyond the Threshold by Dean Nelson is a guidebook on how to create positive changes in your life and unleash your full potential. Nelson provides readers with insightful advice on how to transform yourself through awakening. He approaches many life problems from a spiritual point of view, which offers compelling and long-lasting solutions. Not only do we learn about spirituality and consciousness, but we also learn how to apply these ideas to better our lives.


In this book, Nelson takes on the role of the guru guiding us through the difficulties of life, while simultaneously revealing the truths of reality. It is an incredible and engaging read, which I rate a perfect 4 out of 4 stars. Many of the concepts present in the book, such as the idea of a higher self, are complex, yet Nelson skillfully explains them in a coherent way. However, the only possible flaw I can think of is that there is a very simplistic approach to a lot of the concepts, yet I do not find that it takes away from the perfect score.


Beyond the Threshold does right what almost every other self-help book does wrong. Many self-help books preach ideas that are just not realistic, such as “always be positive”, which is not possible. Nelson’s book acknowledges the duality of life and even encourages us to fully experience negative emotions instead of blocking them out. We must first accept our emotional state before we can detach. Another great thing about the book is how at the end of each chapter, there is a series of steps to follow that helps you apply the ideas discussed in that chapter. Many people who read self-help books find themselves consuming the information without implementing it. However, Nelson emphasizes time and time again that we must actively use the information and suggests ways to do so. After every series of steps, there is also a list of additional resources that provide more helpful information. This is useful because it allows readers to explore various perspectives themselves. 


The book does a great job of making you question your predisposed beliefs about the nature of life. Nelson frequently asks the readers questions that help them reflect on what they have thought as true all along. By doing this, he opens the minds of readers to other possibilities they hadn’t considered before. He helps us realize that the only thing standing in our way is ourselves. Moreover, Nelson also includes personal accounts of horrible things that have happened in his life. He is someone who has suffered a great deal like most of us, but just like him, we can also change our lives for the better. 


I recommend this book to all people, especially those interested in self-help or spirituality. I also feel like people who are interested in the mysteries of life, such as consciousness, will find it enjoyable as well. The book is exceptionally well-edited with zero errors. The topics discussed are intriguing, and the words flow effortlessly. You’ll probably finish it in one read.

Perfect 4 out of 4 stars Review by Yasheika950


Dean Nelson's book, Beyond the Threshold: Simple Transitional Techniques To Awaken Your Potential, was a phenomenal read. The title upon first glance wasn't a title that made the book seemed irresistible like a must-have, but I somehow managed to take a peek inside. When I read through the Table of Contents, I saw some eye-catching topics like "Make your brain work better for you and Implementing Passion and Compassion", I knew I had found the right book to help me on my self-improvement journey.

The more I read, the more I was intrigued to read because Dean was explaining and bringing to light things we were all guilty of, things we wish someone would help us to understand, and not only that but the book provided solutions on how to fix habits we have grown accustomed to. This book not only talks about the things we are facing but it provides solutions into bite sizes so we can implement them in our lives, phase by phase.

I would give Dean's book 4 out of 4. It was very applicable, easily understood, and very relatable. Reading Beyond The Threshold really opened up my eyes and mind to a better way of thinking and I was happy the book was so appealing, I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone. It took me about two weeks to read this book, not because it wasn't a fun read, but because of not enough free time after work, but I couldn't wait for bedtime to dive back into improving myself through whatsoever solutions Dean was going to offer next.

I didn't meet up on any grammatical errors or any irrelevant sentences. It was perfectly written and explained. Its was just phenomenal.

Perfect 4 out of 4 stars Review by YulduzDao

Unlike other books on self-development, personal and business success, this book has another dimension of the successful life that is supposed to unfold not up to the top, but inside to its depth. It is a way to live a deeper and more conscious life. This option is available for everyone, regardless of one’s skills, education, or profession. The more you read this book, the more you realize that it is the only option to live your own life, unique and rich.


For the author of Beyond the Threshold, Dean Nelson, the path of transformation started with the terrifying accident in his life, the suicide of his father that caused the feelings of shame and guilt for many years. The way back took years. First, he had to clean space for future transformation through calming down his brain, getting rid of wrong beliefs and damaging labels. The basement for any transformational changes is integrity and character, as Dean said, “Character is the code. Integrity is living according to that code.” By embracing new believes and using positive affirmations, visualization, meditation and yoga, Dean got ready for the moments of transformation, until his spiritual experiences expanded enough to flow into the enlightenment or “luminance”. However, it is not the ultimate goal, it is only a tool for the successful life. By practicing thankfulness, forgiveness, gratitude, anyone is able to implement compassion to entrain others into positive states of being. Ultimately, every person by living his own life, positively and efficiently, not only is able, but IS changing the world. And this is the best thing he could do for the world!


I share Dean Nelson’s views in many points, but the most remarkable thing I would like to draw attention to, is his valuable insights on gadgets in our life. To the author’s mind, technology is the first obstacle on the way to real life. Initially technology was determined to make our life easier. And this is true, especially at this time, affected by social distancing, when using it remains the only way to interact. But the more we use technology, the more we rely on it. As a result, people lose their inner guidance system, their intuition, their creativity; they detach themselves from living their own life. Have you seen people sitting next to each other and being involved in their phones? They are sharing one space and time, but, in fact, they are being in different worlds at the moment. This point of view reminded me of the ideas of the Swiss writer, Max Frisch, who in the past century described the change of people’s perception by using cameras. He wrote that people stopped to admire the beauty of the moment; their attention was used only to capture the moment to save in an external memory (cloud storage nowadays), but not in their hearts, without ever recalling it. These concepts seem to evolve over time. What is the next stage? We can only guess. What to do now? The only option lies in the thoughtful and limited use of devices. They should help us in life, but not steal our life.


I liked a very clear frame of every chapter in this book. Formally, first, the author outlines a problem; then, he introduces the solutions in form of an easy to-do-list; after that, the author gives a referral to the resources that are supposed to broaden the reader’s views of this subject. These resources include miscellaneous sources, from business reviews, like Harvard or Forbes, to scientific works of modern researchers.


In spite of this plain form of expressing the author’s views, I was impressed by his wide-ranged knowledge and deep experiences. In clear and familiar language, but very detailed, the author describes different psychotherapy treatments, like Eye Movement, Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR), or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT); he gives a categorization of different kinds of beliefs; he represents a full picture of people’s consciousness in all complexity and variety. At the same time, Dean Nelson shares with us his personal experiences with yoga, meditation, brainwave entrainment, or even mystifying fire-walk ceremony, when he walked on 1,100 degree burning coals. Human capabilities are unlimited!


This book would be interesting for everyone who is interested in personal growth and is looking for new ways of self-development. I would rate this book 4 out of 4 stars, as it is highly informative in regard to its contents, and it is very fascinating in regard to its form. It connects modern science and eastern approaches, scientific knowledge and personal experience, everyone, and the whole universe. This book has been obviously edited, as I haven’t noticed any mistakes. I would recommend it.

Perfect 4 out of 4 stars Review by aileenvaldes

Best selling author Dean Nelson has shared the wisdom he has learned throughout his life-long self-improvement journey and encourages us to join him in our own journey of self-improvement and awakening our potential. Beyond the Threshold delves into various areas of life, such as overcoming negative life events, dealing with excessive stress, manifesting your dreams, and reaching your potential. Nelson shares techniques we can implement into our lives to assist us in awakening our consciousness and creating the life we desire.

Beyond the Threshold references the humanistic pursuit of happiness and reminds us that we are in control of our lives. It encourages us to reclaim our power. This book is a blueprint with resources to consciously create a more positive life, and most importantly, create a life you desire. You can use these techniques to manifest life upgrades and enhancements, as long as you put in the work and implement the action steps suggested in the chapters.

The format of this book is great because it allows you to read the book in whatever order you prefer. You can read it all the way through or skip to a particular chapter based on what area in your life you would like to work on. The chapters are broken up into topics that we, as humans, usually struggle with. In each chapter, Nelson provides solutions and resources. The solutions are simple, concrete steps to take in order to achieve change in whichever area the chapter is focusing on. The resource section points you in the right direction if you should choose to explore the topic on a deeper level on your own.

One of the most unique aspects of this book is how Nelson is able to simplify self-improvement into easy to manage steps. Some self-help books may leave you inspired, yet unsure how to put into practice what you’ve learned. Nelson gives you specific action steps to take. He encourages you to apply these solutions offered in order to actively create positive changes. This book is one you can keep coming back to as you implement the action steps for change in the solutions portion of the chapters.

Beyond the Threshold is endorsed by Dr. Joe Vitale, a spiritual teacher featured in the popular movie called The Secret, which delves into the topic of the Law of Attraction. I highly recommend this book if you have any interest in spirituality, consciousness, and creating the life you want. This book is 4 out of 4. It is easy to read and has been edited. I would not recommend it for those who are not interested in self-development or reflection. I want to note that this book tells of a sensitive event in the author’s life, regarding suicide. If this is a potentially triggering topic for you, I would recommend passing on this book.

For those who are seeking to change their lives and improve the quality of life, Beyond the Threshold is a motivating yet practical guide to transcend the threshold into higher states of consciousness. It is an invaluable guide with simplified steps to take in order to manifest change. If you are ready to take the journey inwards, this book is for you.

5 out of 5 stars Review by Lesley Jones

For over thirty years Dean Nelson has researched effective ways to unclutter your mind of negativity and reprogramme it, so it starts working in your favor. If you are feeling stuck or unhappy in any area of your life, the good news is you have the power to change in Beyond The Threshold by Dean Nelson. Learn to eliminate negative perceptions and beliefs and form ones that will help you reach your full potential. Discover how your subconscious mind and intuition can be the key to making powerful decisions that serve your best interests and how you can tap into them. Discover how to manifest, meditate, and reframe situations that empower you. If your habits are not consistent with your desired outcomes and goals, then it is time to make ones that are. If you do not like your present story then create a new one, a chapter at a time. 

In Beyond The Threshold by Dean Nelson, using personal stories and detailed research data, the author has created a go-to manual for anyone that seems stuck but has no idea on the first step to change. As I read through this amazing guide, the vast amount of information was staggering. It seems the brain is like a computer and, over time, it becomes clogged with negativity, misconceptions, and a belief system that is detrimental to success, happiness, and peace. The solutions section at the end of each chapter helps clear away the uncertainty, clutter, and perceptions that have formed in your subconscious mind and then replaces this with powerful and positive information. I loved the sections on meditation and yoga and was amazed by the health benefits. I also thought the section on visualization really helpful and the techniques in this guide helped me understand why it had not worked for me in the past. The chapter on the Dimensions of the Conscious Mind was truly life-changing. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to change but does not know where to begin.

5 out of 5 stars Review by Tammy Ruggles

Beyond The Threshold: Simple Transformational Techniques To Awaken Your Potential by Dean Nelson is THE solution-oriented self-help book to take you to your next level today. This is the perfect book for those in a slump in their life or career, for those looking for a change, or don't know where to start. With its comprehensive and upbeat delivery, you'll find yourself charged up in a good way, ready to jump in and make some positive changes in your life. The changes can be dramatic, trading old thought patterns and behavior choices for new ones, using the mind/body/spirit approach. The focus is on new solutions rather than the problems.

Magnetic is the word that comes to mind to describe the overall effect of the book. It has a personal style as if Nelson is talking to you one on one. He speaks like a life coach, and a spiritual coach as well, but this is precisely what you need when making important decisions about your life, relationships, and career. A lot of the advice is common sense, but hearing it presented in a concise, practical package with thought-provoking exercises is what we need to boost our morale and keep plugging forward. 

The one thing that stands out in the book is how you can apply Nelson's principles to almost any area of your life--from losing weight to starting a small business. Besides reaching goals, you'll find ways to be happier and more joyful in your life, too, and we can all use advice where this is concerned. Nelson also emphasizes a sense of togetherness and community; the importance of thinking of our planet, our future, and the future of our children. Beyond The Threshold: Simple Transformational Techniques To Awaken Your Potential by Dean Nelson just may be the one-stop book you need to get your life on the right track.


5 out of 5 stars Review by K.C. Finn

Beyond The Threshold: Simple Transformational Techniques To Awaken Your Potential is a work of non-fiction in the self-help and guidance sub-genre and was penned by author Dean Nelson. For those desperately seeking a change in their lives and the opportunity to pursue new dreams, this guide offers a positive and proactive way forward through carefully described techniques. Within the pages, the author guides readers into a new way of thinking and of seeing the potential for change in one’s life and developing an attitude that can be applied to many facets of life, such as relationships, business success, personal happiness, and physical and mental healing. 

Author Dean Nelson has crafted a highly engaging self-help read which focuses on practical solutions that have the potential to really work when they’re applied and followed properly. The commitment to changing one’s perspective can be a difficult journey, but Nelson’s friendly and accessible prose provides a supportive and encouraging environment with which to enact change. I also particularly liked the organization of the chapters and the flow of ideas, which is intended to engage all readers at an introductory level and build upon the philosophy and adaptation with each new chapter. The stress reduction chapter was a favorite of mine, resonating with many truths that we perhaps all already know, but need to face and directly combat with a perspective shift in order to truly overcome stress issues. Overall, I would definitely recommend Beyond The Threshold to readers who need a new, practical, and effective approach to self-help.

Reviews for The Experiential Approach 

Official Review 

Following is the official review of

The Experiential Approach.

Perfect 4 out of 4 stars Review by TanayaShare 

The Experiential Approach: A Fresh New Approach for Creating Immediate Personal Power is a self-help book by Dean Nelson. It is about 180 pages.

The book starts with a very personal and tragic story. When the author was a teenager, his father committed suicide. For decades he felt guilt surrounding this awful day, facing depression and suicidal thoughts. Fortunately, after spending a considerable amount of money on different seminars, books, and other media, he developed a means to live life in a more meaningful and positive way. Essentially, it all boils down to the power of belief. What we believe influences our experiences in life. Once we identify what our negative beliefs are, we can adjust them to be more positive and productive. This will affect the choices we make and empower us with the right attitude and intentions so that we can live a more fulfilling and rewarding life. It takes time and commitment to adjust how we view ourselves and to make changes for a better quality of life, but it’s incredibly worth it.

There are a few exercises in the book to put these ideas into practice, such as identifying what you would like to change about your life, what’s been holding you back in accomplishing specific goals, and finding the underlying beliefs that need to be altered. An example that the author uses is a person who wants to be a better public speaker. This person was the youngest of seven siblings and believed that what he had to say was not important. In order to be a better public speaker, that person would need to change his belief to be that what he says is important. I really liked how the author thoroughly explained these concepts, using specific examples and understandable terminology. There is a refreshing simplicity to his explanations that makes being happy seem achievable, even though the mind is a complex thing. 

Another commendable aspect of this book is that there is the right balance of talking about his personal life to giving practical advice. It all flows well together, is very relatable and can be applied to any difficult situation that someone may have faced. For instance, the author states: “I unknowingly created a belief that my life was hard after my father’s suicide. Every negative event became an opportunity to reinforce that philosophy. Every difficult experience had control on what I believed.” The author also discusses his marriage, career, and hobbies, showing that this method applies to all realms of life.

I really appreciate the intent behind this book. The author really wants to help readers based on his own experiences. He reinforces the idea that it’s possible to overcome the darkness and devastation that traumatic events bring. He is also very realistic and honest. He’s not perfect. He’s human. Bad things will always happen; but we do have some control through the choices we make, our attitude, and our beliefs. I also really like his distinction between intentions and powerful intentions. It’s nice to want something, but we have to actually go after it. We also don’t have to completely neglect our past, no matter how bad it may have been. We can instead learn from it and let negative experiences empower us in the present.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It was very convincing, well written and down to earth. I felt not only inspired but also incredibly motivated to put these ideas into action. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to make changes in their lives, overcome trauma, and be more focused on the present.

Congratulations to the author for being able to express his life struggles and accomplishments! I can only imagine how challenging it is to share such personal details of your life, so I also appreciate the author for doing so.


The event was traumatic but he did not get consumed by such negative experience. Instead, he took advantage of the reverse effect of that sad situation as he grew up and conscientiously learned from it. This makes the book an excellent reading material not only for the fun of reading but for personal growth.



…the author guided the readers on how to win over life challenges and that it ends with an inspirational feeling of doing his advice. 



Such a heart touching and inspirational book. I hope to use Dean's philosophy for methods to success in my daily life. I have read the book twice and continue to refer to it. A must read for everyone.


Debra Barnhart



This book is so wisely written by so young a man! Very interesting and enlightening to read. It can help with hidden beliefs that are hindering your life-it has helped me see things about myself and I am 80 years of age. You will be glad if you read it!


A. from Florida



This is an excellent read. There is helpful information in this book that can be applied to your everyday life. I would recommend this book to anyone. I have already used the tools offered and have had success in my personal and business life.


Jared Drake



…Dean, your book will motivate many people.





Great book!! I really found my time useful reading this non fiction book..what an awesome writer with an awesome story…





I for one can use the inspiration and motivation offered in this book at this stage in my life.





The event was traumatic but he did not get consumed by such negative experience. Instead, he took advantage of the reverse effect of that sad situation as he grew up and conscientiously learned from it. This makes the book an excellent reading material not only for the fun of reading but for personal growth.





I like that the author made complex psychology theory so accessible and easy to utilize!





Self-help books are not usually my choice, but suicide is a topic that really hits home with me because I had a very dear friend chose that route. It was a tragedy that still affects me profoundly, even after almost 25 years, and this book explores these feelings with empathy and compassion.





…I can't wait apply some of the practices you have shared into my own life! I would also like to share some of your stories and strategies with my students (high school) so that when they graduate and begin to live on their own, they can use these strategies as a tool to get them through tougher times they may encounter. Thank you!





…the author guided the readers on how to win over life challenges and that it ends with an inspirational feeling of doing his advice. 





I am not much for self-help books but I am glad to see that it was not only inspiring but motivational as well!





It sounds like the author really believes that perspective is key to success. I feel like there is a plethora of books out there that suggest just by thinking about something hard enough you will somehow achieve that thing. I am glad the author seems to focus on using belief and perspective to motivate action. Seems a much better idea.





Thank you for sharing your personal story and how you were able to reframe and identify your negative thoughts!

Reviews For The Mindfulness Approach
Official Review
Following is the official review of
The Mindfulness Approach.
4 out of 4 stars Review by L_ThereseShare


Most people deal with stress on a daily basis and need to explore effective strategies for managing it. For some people, stress can have the physiological effect of exacerbating a medical condition, making it a more disruptive factor that more urgently requires relief. For Dean Nelson, a chronic gastrointestinal condition was both a cause of and affected by the stress in his life. After years of medical interventions, he discovered a new approach: meditation. In his book The Mindfulness Approach, Nelson tells his story and introduces the reader to an alternative methodology for dealing with daily stresses.

As I read this book, I was astonished by how honest the author was willing to be about his situation. He makes himself vulnerable as he exposes his medical condition and the way it has affected his life. He is brutally honest about some of the physical complications he experienced and the fears that clouded the way he envisioned his future. The author’s willingness to be so open about his experiences enriches the book by helping the reader comprehend the impact of this approach in his life and, by extension, the potential impact for the reader’s life.

The author also created an immensely practical book. There are a number of specific exercises that exemplify the techniques and strategies under discussion. For example, the author names and explains seven specific breathing exercises as well as instructions for some meditation techniques. The specificity may sound like it would become dry or overwhelming, but the text avoids this pitfall, remaining brief and concise. The author identifies techniques like the Silva Method, which worked particularly well for him, as well as other techniques that have experienced a lot of rising popularity, such as Mindfulness meditation.

As I read through this book, the sixth chapter seemed out of joint with the spirit of the rest of the book. Chapter 6 is entirely devoted to introducing another writer/scholar who was a major influence on the author. While a few paragraphs about a person who pioneered the field or became very influential in the application of these strategies would be appropriate, the extent of this introduction makes the chapter sound like a commercial. I felt that it went much too long.

Near the end of the book (page 153 in my copy), Nelson makes a very poignant statement. He writes, “Computers can run 24 hours a day, but they also must be re-booted occasionally to retrieve updates and to clear out unnecessary data or else their processing will slow down or become locked.” In The Mindfulness Approach, Dean Nelson offers techniques and evidence (both anecdotal and factual) supporting breathing and meditation as a way for people to find time to re-boot and de-stress. From his own story to the lengthy reference list at the end, Nelson’s book is full of worthwhile information and practical ideas for people everywhere. Despite a flaw or two, I think the book still merits a full 4 out of 4 stars. It’s relevant, concise, and very personal all at the same time.

Post Number:#1 by L_Therese » 05 Feb 2017

This book has given me the push I have been looking for to start practicing meditation. It provided ways to start which are simple and easy.
Also I agree with the author that we need to be self aware. That is a big step in practicing meditation.
Thank you for voicing all my thoughts and helping me find a starting point.

Catherine King


Dean Nelson has done it again. Another Great Read. He is Bold with his Second book and helps others with his Life Experiences and Mindfulness Approach and Strategies to help others with facing their problems and offers real world solutions.

J. Drake

Modern medicine works wonders for many, but has its limits. This book outlines pragmatic steps that you can take to find healing. Maybe the greatest gift from the book is - You don't have to be sick to enjoy the benefits of the mindfulness approach! We can all enjoy a more healthy and fulfilled life.

Van Nelson

Thank you Dean Nelson for sharing your story to help others like myself who struggle with everyday real life issues. This was a much needed read. Very informative and refreshing. Looking forward to putting the tools into practice on a daily basis. I will stay in the present...Today.


There are many inspirational quotes which are very helpful and we can apply in our life.


I have actually read the #TheMindfulnessApproach and found it really helpful in dealing with my depression. Must read for everyone.


Beautiful cover, great information in this #NonFiction #SelfHelp book. Thank you very much.


Thanks for sharing your own experiences in this book. It definitely makes the difference.


Important book with tips on how to eliminate stress- an issue many Americans struggle with. Props to author!


Great insight. Especially at a time where it seems every one is stressed out and needs peace of mind.


Need a bit of peace of mind? Mindfulness is a tool that can help you do just that. Read this book to find out more.


Bestseller in the making.


This is a really great book for each individual. Everyone suffers from stress at some point in their lives. I love how you can relate.


A great book with great advices about stress.


Good reminder of how to deal w/ life circumstances & taking ownership instead of crying "Why me" or blaming others for our circumstances.


This is a really good book and the author is really honest and straight. It is a really trustworthy book!


With the way things are functioning in the world, it looks like this is the kind of book everybody needs in today's date and time!


Everyone has stress in their life and this book seems like the perfect way to learn about dealing with stress related illnesses.


I have known Dean for almost 20 years and for many of those years I did not know how much he has suffered due to his health conditions. After reading the Mindfulness Approach I think Dean is a true testament to how having the right thoughts can manifest something wonderful. In this book Dean demonstrates through his mindfuness that he was able to overcome many adversaries through meditation and living his life in a very positive manor.

Susan Raible

I must start by saying that I've known and been friends with the author for many years. In stating this, I never knew the struggles that he endured for all of those years. This book talks about how he went from possible surgery to a more mindful process. In his book he dives into how focused meditation is extremely powerful It’s amazing all the benefits your mind and body obtain from meditation. This is a very well written book on meditation, its benefits and the different types and is well worth the read. Anyone who needs to retake ownership of themselves whether you're fighting stress, pain or chronic illness this book is a place to start.

Chris Stricker

This book is such an easy read and helped me to consciously cope with some of the stress that I have dealt with for years in my ever stressful job.

Amazon Customer

Very wisely written and very interesting to read. You'll be glad you read it. Well done Dean, cant wait for the next one.

Debra Barnhart

Many thanks to the author for sharing his experience of how to overcome stress and its complications. It is worth reading. Thanks.


B. Paulson

An interesting approach to a genre that I'm not usually interested in - it's great to see a respectful, sensitive perspective.

C. Potterton
