Miracles Now Book Review


About the Book

Miracles Now by New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein will help readers eliminate stress and find peace—even if they only have a minute to spare. Bernstein knows that most of us don’t have time for an hour of yoga or 30 minutes of meditation, so she has hand-picked 108 techniques to combat our most common problems—from addiction and anxiety to burnout and resentment. Inspired by some of the greatest spiritual teachings, Bernstein offers up spirit-based principles, meditations, and practical, do-them-in-the-moment tools to help readers bust through blocks to live with more ease. She breaks down each technique Spirit Junkie style—with meditations, assessment questions, and step-by-step guidance—while incorporating lessons from A Course in Miracles and Kundalini yoga.
As readers benefit from the techniques they’ll be able to share them. Each practice has been boiled down to a 140-character description—or Miracle Message—which can be tweeted, pinned on Pinterest, posted on Facebook, or shared on Instagram. Each Miracle Message will end with the hashtag #MiraclesNow. Ebook readers can share right from their device.
Readers familiar with Bernstein’s fun and innovative take on spirituality will scoop up her latest work. And those who are discovering her will appreciate her easy-access approach to spirituality and transformation. (Goodreads)

My Review

This is not a book I would typically pick up and read. But I really like reading about new ideas and thoughts so I thought this book would be insightful. I enjoyed how the book was set up. Each topic was in it's own chapter with a quote at the end. It's organized and simple. I do enjoy yoga myself though I never do the "spiritual" side of things because I don't agree with it. I do think yoga is a good exercise and a good way to calm your mind. The author had some great things to say, I agreed with many of the ideas and topics on coping with stress and de-cluttering your life- it does make a difference mentally. I think the main thing that I got out of this book is that your mind has a big effect on your physical body, which I completely agree with. I agree with the idea that you can really change things when you have to right mental attitude.
I did not agree with "believing in the universe" or "let the universe do her thing". I see the "universe" as God because that's what I believe.

In any case I really did enjoy this book and I think it had a lot of great advice.

"I received this book from Hay House for free in exchange for an honest review."
