Book Description

He's read the palms of celebrities and VIPs including President Barak Obama. Now for the first time celebrated palmist, psychic and life coach Gary Markwick is taking readers by the hand as he leads them on a mind-expanding journey to a deeper, more harmonious reality.

Now It Begins is a comprehensive self-help book that draws upon personal testimony, professional guidance and the best of New Age thinking to empower people to fully take control of their lives.

Split into 10 distinct “phases” it systematically tackles some of life's biggest and most personal questions about identity and interconnectivity, love and fear, and choice and destiny.

Arguing that most of us are trapped in a harmful illusionary world of our own subconscious creation, Markwick urges readers to break the mental chains holding them back and by exercising the gift of choice take responsibility for their own future happiness.

The author is there every step of the way to provide a clear and accessible path through the clutter of negative thoughts and day-to-day distractions on to the end goal of self-realisation.

At the heart the title is the simple assertion that once you can let go of illusion and draw upon a more fundamental, universal source of motivation, then you will reconnect with your true purpose on earth.

Illustrated throughout with ancient learning and pithy stories that gently bring home the important points being made, Now It Begins will consistently inspire and encourage people on their exciting journey to freedom and fulfilment.

The world is now on the verge of a great spiritual awakening and everybody owes it to themselves, and their neighbours, to tap into the limitless energy of the moment and bring about a lasting change for the better.

This is an independent review for which no payment or other consideration has been received. The author is unknown to the reviewer.

Coming from a background in fusty experimental psychology, reviewing this book posed me a challenge, it being in the tradition of folk psychology and folk healing. This is the realm of cognitive therapy, yet it's not a textbook, it's a distillation of traditional wisdom.
There's no question that everyone can change their cognitions - beliefs, thoughts and emotional reactions - for the better, and re-examining obstructive beliefs from time to time is a healthy habit. Does this book facilitate this?
In addition to the usual considerations, such as production standard, literacy, readability and entertainment value, I examined whether it can deliver what it promises on the cover - the opportunity of a new beginning? The answer would depend on the skill of the author is persuading the reader, me, into a place where I can, and want, to change my maladaptive beliefs, and thereby change my future.
The first four paragraphs set out the basis of cognitive therapy in an intuitively accessible way using an understandable metaphor; then a further 230 pages follow. Changing cognitions is a long journey taken small step at a time.
Communal altruism and unconditional self-love feature, as does unconditional love of others, which begets unconditional love in return - a virtuous cycle.
We are advised to cultivate the ability to live in the day. Unpleasant echoes from the past, or fear of the future can blight our present life. Be happy one day at a time and let come what may. It's a common observation that the poorest people in the world smile, the richest frown; the poor live in the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now it Begins by Gary Markwick August 27, 2012
Format:Paperback
This is a spiritual self-help book that covers some very interesting topics that will help the reader gain spiritual knowledge and awareness, that will change the way you think about life and really make you think about all aspects of life and how we can bring out the best in ourselves to help us live more fulfilling lives and to understand life much better.

This is a really amazing book to read. It gives you a really good insight into life. I personally can take a lot from what Gary says in this book and learn from it to help me grow and develop more as a person and use this in my everyday life. I am certain this will be the same for all who read this book. The book is easy to read, no long jargon; everything is explained and easy to understand. This is one of the best spiritual self-help and awareness books I have ever read. It you are looking to be inspired, enlightened and uplifted then this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shift Into Unconditional Love December 20, 2012
Format:Paperback
The author begins this book by explaining that a shift is occurring that is raising our level of vibration to a higher state of consciousness, in which we can become more in touch and aligned with our purpose.

"It is now time to work from the heart, to connect with each other, to change our ways, thoughts and actions and give unconditional love," he writes. Now It Begins then guides the reader to understand how all these things are possible.

The book shows how to gain strength and help the world emerge from the chaos of greed, selfishness, anger and blame that we've been experiencing. Author Gary Markwick shares how to gain practical and spiritual knowledge and awareness through Ten Phases, starting with "Changing Your Life" to serve one another, which starts with unconditional love.

Phase Two is "Changing the Way You Think," important because our thoughts can transform the world. The author advocates positive thoughts as the key to happiness, accepting and being grateful for all we've been given. His recommendations throughout the book guide one to change, e.g., beginning every morning with gratitude for what you have.

Putting his spiritual guidance to work, we reach Phase Ten, "The Higher Self," in which Gary explains how we can tune into our inner awareness, our spirit guides, our unconscious minds, to find all the answers we need. We can attune to a higher frequency and develop our higher self, he instructs, by remaining in present time, thinking positive thoughts for yourself and others, enjoying your life and allowing yourself to feel good.

He advocates the practice of yoga, eating natural foods, drinking plenty of water, exercising, being in nature, and laughter, to become aligned within yourself and raise your energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now it Begins August 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Now It Begins Gary writes a very special book in a language that is understandable by all.
It tells of the new age way of thinking and the fact that we create what we think about ourselves. The reality we see is not neccessarily the truth out there, because it is coloured by our experiences and fears and if we come to our inner core, we can change all that and start living the life we were meant to live. There are lots of ways to help yourself get there, which he desrcibes in the book. I have read a few books about this kind of thing already, but Gary's is one of the most clear, understandable, powerful and helpful ones that are out there.
