Gabby’s siteDespite our best intentions, many of us don’t have the time to meditate and we therefore think that we don’t have the spiritual practice that we desire, or worse yet, we don’t have the spiritual practice that we think we “should” have. For that reason, using a book like Gabrielle Bernstein’s April 2014 book, Miracles Now: 108 Life-Changing Tools for Less Stress, More Flow, and Finding Your True Purpose is a great resource for living a more conscious life. What makes this book truly unique is that it not only breaks down spirituality in digestible, actionable chunks for the mere mortal, but it also teaches us spiritual practices that are not usually found in mainstream daily meditation books. Miracles Now is based on Kundalini yoga and meditation, which is different than what we may be used to when it comes to both meditation and spirtuality, but it’s super interesting and effective.
What is the Value of Miracles Now?
Miracles Now is a book that presents you with 108 spiritual practices that include mantras, meditation poses and mental shifts that remind you in your busy, hectic, often stressful daily life to live from a place of love rather than from a place of fear. As you know, it’s not enough to say that you’re going to live from a place of love without doing anything to perpetuate the love, and without doing anything to eliminate the fear-laden trip-ups that we are exposed to and unwillingly, although sometimes willingly, expose ourselves to. As the subtitle of the book indicates, this book really does help you diminish your stress, live in more flow and continuously be on the path for finding your true purpose. This book, like Gabby’s prior books, is highly influenced by her study of A Course in Miracles (ACIM). In ACIM, it says that miracles are simply a shift of perception… specifically what this means is that miracles naturally occur when we shift pour perception from a horizontal point of view, to a vertical point of view, thus referencing a Higher Power.
What is One of My Favorite and Inadvertent Practices that Resulted from Reading Miracles Now?
I’ve always loved reading with a Kindle, Amazon’s e-reader. (By the way, if you haven’t tried reading with the Kindle because you feel that you won’t enjoy a book as much simply because its not in print form, I recommend that you do try reading with a Kindle because the experience is so great, you’ll hardly miss the paper. And if you don’t want to buy a Kindle, you can actually download a Kindle app for your app devices or simply download the Kindle Cloud Reader on your computer, so you can read electronic books from any computer with internet access). This book, Miracles Now was perfect for reading on a Kindle because each of the 108 practices is so to-the-point, that sharing them on Twitter is a joy. Not only was it a pleasure to share this wisdom with others, but having an opportunity to review these reminders in my own social media account was a breath of fresh air. Sharing this wisdom, makes me feel proud because we all can use reminders for how to live more mindfully.
What I Personally Thought of Miracles Now
I’ve read Gabby’s prior books, and done the May Cause Miracles: 40 Day Meditation Challenge, which by the way, I was super proud that I was able to do. However, this newer book, Miracles Now is my favorite. It’s almost like having super delicious spiritual “tapas”/appetizers which seem small… but which leave a huge, lasting and peace-infused impact on my life. With so many things competing for our attention, nowadays, making spirituality practical, is the best way for us to feel that our spirituality and our life align. Why? Because spirituality is much more than listening or reading, it’s about applying it on a day-to-day basis and growing daily because of it.
What’s In It for You?
We all can improve our spiritual practice… at the very least, we can all increase our feeling of connection and especially, our feeling of peace. When you buy Miracles Now, you’ll be able to work on these areas. Additionally, if you so choose, you can participate in the Miracles Now Book Club Power Posse by checking out Gabby’s site .
