One of the big issues I had with this book was that it came across very self promoting. The hashtags after every chapter got old very quick.
It felt like about half of the lessons instructed you to go to the authors website. Instead of having to go to her website I would have prefered the author to just include the information i ...more
When I attended Hay House’s recent I Can Do It conference in Denver I was browsing Gabrielle Bernstein’s “Miracles Now: Tools for Less Stress, More Flow, and Finding Your True Purpose” at the bookstore. “I was so hoping to hear Gabby speak today,” said a woman in her 20′s next to me, disappointed that Bernstein’s appearance at the conference had been cancelle ...more

I shouldn't be so harsh or negative - it's a little ironic considering the nature of this book. But 140 character messages? With HASHTAGS?!
There were a few good tips and insights here. And if you're just dipping your toes into Kundalini or a spiritual awakening, this is a nicely marketed beginning, in easy to digest snippets.
But really. It's full of self-promotion. Actually rife. Riddled. And that negated many ...more
If you have been following Gabby for awhile or have been on the spiritual path for awhile, there isn't anything new here. This book and her previous effort, "May Cause Miracles," seemed to me to be a repetitive repackaging of her earlier work and lectures. With MCM, I still enjoyed it, but hoped that she wo ...more
- Feeling apathetic? Just show up. At the gym, with pen and paper, etc. It's 90% of it.
- "Face gossip with silence." - Dream Hampton
- In the presence of someone talking negatively? And they do this a lot? Don't be the light. ...more
Favorite quote: Happiness is a choice you make.
As I read more books on the subject of spirituality many authors are crossing over each others. Many I would never have heard of before without reading the previous book. I just love aspect as a part of seeking knowledge. Gabrielle Bernstein has written several books and I i ...more
I enjoyed reading her take on all these tools and how she implemented them into her own life.
If you enjoy self help or law of attraction or Course in Miracles stuff, you should definitely check this one out. You won’t be di ...more

Over the period of time I was reading it, I have varied in opinion on its content. Now, I have reread the inner flap blurb and find that I wholeheartedly agree with the author’s aim of providing us with some quick and usually simple techniques to clear our minds of the stress and anxiety most of us feel at some time each day.
My particular favourite technique is number 102 entitled, When In Doubt, Pla ...more
For example, biting back in anger during conflict, you are no different to the person who’s showing anger towards you, I really do agree with this, it’s important to be transparent with yourself with your own behaviours, the only tip offered, however is to be aware of this. This scen ...more
I was not familiar with Bernstein's work before reading Miracles Now, and I found some helpful information regarding emotional balance.
The tips were not life changing or particularly memorable, but they were helpful.
I read this over a long period of time, in parts. I wonder if it would be more helpful if I would read each lesson as the issue arose in my life (like a reference). Maybe I will refer back some day.
The tips are varied. I will never do the meditations/poses/mantras/chants that the author suggested, but that's okay. I still got a lot out of the other chapters and I'm happy I picked this book up.
