Needing to pack a mindful boost into your frenetic life? Try the little book, Pearls of Wisdom: 30 Inspirational Ideas to Live Your Best Life Now! It’s a compilation of short, inspirational essays offering simple, ageless wisdom and advice from well-known self-help authors to up-and-coming self-help authors.
The key to this charming book? Each of these authors has lived what they’re writing about: their personal experience transformed their lives, offering us all the opportunity to learn and grow from their generous sharing.
Here’s the thing. Our lives are so packed we’re frenetically trying to handle practical details for our loved ones—and ourselves. We look for answers, or at least clues, on how to get things done while also finding inspiration to be our best selves. We want to delve under the surface to find an inner meaning that connects us to all life, and to the divine.
But can we do that in 15 minutes?
You can with this book. In it you’ll find “ah-ha” tips on how to connect to your inner knowing, to both clear out blockages and find greater happiness and fulfillment and healing wholeness. You’ll find simple ways to become a more active participant in your life. Along the way, you’ll get ideas on how to build community by seeing the human and divine in others.
That includes applying the Golden Rule to your life, a universal axiom that Rev. Stacy Goforth tracks through multiple spiritual and religious disciplines. Or how to relax, honor whatever it is we’re feeling, and let it go so we can welcome our connection to ‘now’ in the moment, as Leslie Gunterson writes. Craig Meriweather suggests that challenges and problems offer us opportunities to grow, and we should seize them with that mindset.
How do we walk the talk? Connecting our values to our outward daily lives is a struggle. Each of these authors shows how they learned that, from shifting their own image of themselves to quantum soul coaching, a process Michelle Manning-Kogler describes as learning to be the “master of your experience” by clearing out blockages to make room for positive feelings.
Be inspired, too, by stories like Asia Voight’s, who was determined to walk again after a devastating injury—and did, by tapping her intuition. And take heart from the simple comfort that you can run around all day, seek guidance, flitter from here to there, but the first step is to “just sit down,” as Liz Byrne says. Just go ahead and do it.
So here’s a “just sit down” for anyone looking for support and enlightenment, an opportunity to meet visionaries with understandable and uplifting stories of finding wisdom: their “pearls of wisdom” will resonate with you. What will you do with them?
The book leads off with essays by top self-help specialists Jack Canfield, Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood, and Marci Shimoff. The line-up continues with transformation specialists from many disciplines, including life and creativity coaching, shamanic and energetic work, intuitives, and writing and educating.
