I saw Panache Desai speak at the Thrive conference in NYC and within 30 seconds, I was bawling my eyes out. All he said was "I love you" and "you are enough." I thought I was a relatively functional, confident person, but it was just so nice to hear those words and the moment I did, the floodgates opened. This book gave me the same peace and catharsis. It gave me the tools to observe how I react to life rather than stewing over the past or the things I cannot control. It helped me to identify, a ...more

so far this book broken up into tiny sips of WAKE THE F UP! is absolutely perfect. No he doesn't swear, but honestly, the information here is nothing new ---but neither is that coffee you're drinking---but doesn't that first sip quench your thirst and fulfill your reaffirming love of coffee?
This is the kind of book that reminds you that you are not your past, nor your mistakes, nor your anger or sadness or ego. It is a couple pages a day type reading and it's absolutely perfect and reasonable t

It doesn't take 33 days to change your life. The first three are more than enough. Once the door of truth opens you can't go back.

This book has a place on my special bookshelf in my bedroom of my favorite, most inspirational and life-changing books. I often just open it to a random page and read it like scripture. Now, though, I'm going to re-read it, going through the 33 days again, to find comfort and self-understanding in this difficult time. For anyone who has not read it, I highly recommend it. Be prepared to look inward.

There are so many books out there--but this breaks through the crowd. It's accessible, helpful, and broken down into daily thoughts and exercises that work. I'd recommend this to anyone who wanted to start pulling themself together and investigating their own spirituality.

Engaging, and written in a gentle, comforting, encouraging tone. I personally found this quite helpful in examining some of my (negative) thought patterns.

Yes. Just yes to all of this. I have now ordered the book to own my own copy so I can read it again. Such good stuff!

I was ironing my clothes when I turned to OWN and he was on help desk Panache Desai I've never heard of him but the way he spoke to each individual I wanted a part of him then a description of who he is in the show came and I went straight to Amazon and bought this book and it has been a gift to me. I feel a completely new person more aware of my thoughts and my emotions. I no longer try to suppress my emotions instead I invite them in and seat with them and experience them. I feel mor

It's most likely a book I'd need to read again. When it started out with the hype of "it will change your life", I tend to be skeptical. I do think this book make my perspective better. But like a very stiff body starting to learn yoga, by the end of this book I finally can touch my toes. I will need a lot of practice to be able to do a crow pose.
The lessons revealed in this book, some are great, some are kinda jibberish new age for my liking. Nevertheless, you take the lesson you can, and open

Like many other reviewers I had a hard time putting this book down and reading only one day at a time. Panache is clearly one of the great teachers of our time. He speaks straight from the heart in authenticity and truth, illuminating the path step by step. His simple approach makes way for every emotion that shows up, good or bad—to feel, accept and breathe through anger, fear, joy and regret, happiness and gratitude. Unwelcome emotions lose some of their charge, expanding the space for the fee ...more

Never judge a book by its author's name. :)

This book landed in my hand quite by accident.
But such accidents reinforce my faith in the divine.
I loved this book for its simplicity and humour.
It helped me. Hope it helps you if you give it a try.

Although the book is very nice, Panache Desai lost all credibility with me after I met him. The book lost all value it could have had. He has a huge ego -- much more than I could stomach. He needs to practice what he preaches.

Like most people familiar with Panache Desai, I was first introduced to his teachings when he appeared on Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul Sunday in 2013. His clear and concise yet deeply profound messages moved me, and I considered how wonderful an experience it would be to hear him speak live. Fast forward 5 years, and I recently had the great honor of attending one of his workshops at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. Now having finally read this book, I can attest to the power of his teach ...more

This book is for those who on the path of a deep and profound spiritual awakening. These words will resonate with anyone who seeks to find their higher purpose. They will help you see through the facade of pretense in the world around us and live a life guided by the power within each of us, which are our own vulnerability and authenticity. This isn’t a book about self-love. It’s much more than that. It helps us break down our emotions into the most basic elements so we can better process them, ...more

This book was a breath of fresh air! With passages for morning, noon, and night for 33 days, it stands apart from other self help books that mention mindfulness and taking in every detail by setting up the book’s structure in that way. This book takes time to read (33 days) and is meant to be relished. While I enjoyed most of what this book tried to convey, the one chapter that didn’t work for me was the chapter on “Addictions”. It claimed a lot of behaviors that I find totally normal to be addi ...more

Find yourself with this book

This 33 day journey helped me overcome doubts and a cloudy sadness that were covering my daily life. All that is good is already inside of you, this book led me to see it again. Great read if you want to work on mindfulness and finding the Divine in you

I love Panache Desai's simple, straightforward presentation of universal laws and principles. Broken into three daily reflections, it's a wonderful companion to one's daily spiritual practices. It is a book that can be read, or listen to as I prefer, again and again.

The book is great, but I had a problem with my own expectation. A lot of wisdom here, but the 33-day thing was not what I was expecting when I picked it up (in the sense that there are not practical, but rather contemplative instructions). Very nice all the same.

Beautiful words to create beautiful feelings

The daily thoughts to consider were very nicely set up in 3 sections kept me focused on higher thoughts throughout each day.

I was asked to look at this book to offer an opinion if it would be a good choice for a discussion group. I think the person who asked had skimming it in mind, but I figured I might as well just read the whole thing.

The book is made up of 33 chapters dived into three sections. Each chapter is a day's reading with one section to be read in the morning, one at mid-day, one at night. (Since I wasn't interesting in doing that -- and only had a 7-day loan period - I just read straight through.) Chap

Truly life-changing. I'm not sure how I can adequately summarize the amount and intensity of "aha-moments" I was able to experience throughout this book but I urge anyone who finds themselves even remotely in a place of dis-harmony, searching, and/or spiritual unfulfilled-ness to let Panache Desai into your life.

I'm not one for reviews, and certainly not lengthy ones, but this book has undoubtedly given me so much to think about that I have made it my mission to do whatever little it is I can d

Reading this book helped me to understand a lot about myself and about life in general. Panache Desai 's book is written with true love and is a genuine expression of one person's belief in humanity and the connectedness of the universe - a sentiment which he wants to spread.

I feel the book started off extremely strong - the chapters on fear, sadness, anger are some of the deepest and most though-provoking sentiments on these expressions I have ever read, and in my opinion, deserved a greater p

Aimed and teaching you everything is a miracle and we are in fact, the universe, the information in this book is so invaluable. Panache couldn't have paced it better. By reading a morning, afternoon, and night passage for 33-days it infuses his teachings throughout your day.
I think I got so much more out of it this way rather than reading it all at once and then going about my day, possibly forgetting the teachings along the way.

I love this book!

I love the author's writing style. It's poetic and simple and straightforward, and while I'm reading each meditation I can feel the impact it's having and at the end of each chapter I notice a shift. He somehow changed me. I don't know how he did it. I love his idea of vibrational density, and how he taught me how to dispel my own vibrational density. There's so much great stuff in this book.

So obviously it took me a little more than 33 days... Mostly because I got sidetracked in the middle & forgot about it. But it was so good, I'll read it again in the coming year. Slowly. One chunk per day, instead of the morning, noon, & night the way you're supposed to. Lots of good stuff in there. ...more

This clear, elegantly-written self-help book guides readers through a process of shedding emotional and psychological baggage. It offers a reading for Morning, Noon and Night over a period of 33 days. I followed the time table and the suggested exercises and found it helpful. I recommend this guide to those seeking solace, happiness and a more positive path through life.

I was sad to read the last page on my 33 day journey. Desai's visual imagery was enlightening as I worked to comprehend concepts in my mind. This book makes you delve deep if you are open to receiving Desai's message.

Born and raised in London, England, Panache has always known he was different. Even at a young age, he possessed an innate kindness and love rarely experienced from one so young. He was recognized by visitors and teachers as gifted. By adolescence he possessed a profound awareness that he had come to do something special.

During his final year at university, Panache began to feel an inner yearning
