Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this slim, friendly book, renowned psychic Browne offers an eight-step program that she says will set readers working toward the perfection of their souls and will bring them joy, fulfillment and renewed spirituality. Each of her steps takes a week to complete and incorporates a written exercise and a daily meditation. Browne believes that the "one innate purpose" of the soul is "to perfect itself and learn for God," and her program is imbued with a gentle, nondenominational sort of spirituality. There are frequent references to God and occasional references to Biblical passages, but Browne is more concerned with helping readers find their own spirituality, unlock memories from past their lives, become more psychic, maintain good relationships and keep themselves "in a state of wellness" than she is in preaching scripture. Throughout the book, she shares details of her own experiences dealing with guilt, financial stress and the loss of loved ones. And she offers some traditional, common sense advice on working toward one’s goals. For example, in a chapter on breaking bad habits, she suggests that readers spend some time figuring out how their habits started and come up with positive subsititutions—i.e., "If I get to the point where I’m about to scream at my children, I’ll go into the bathroom and be silent for one minute." In another, she argues that the best thing to do after a divorce is to get over it, not creep into a hole, because God will make life well again. Vegetarians may make take issue with Browne’s declaration that "when you cut a plant, it screams," but overall hers is a useful, Christian introduction to living life better.

This is the second book that I have read that stressed the release of guilt and fear. The first Book was An Encounter With A Prophet. While Brown comes from a Christian viewpoint, Lewis comes from an anti-dogma, spiritual viewpoint. Lewis maintains it is difficult to release guilt and fear while continuing to believe Christian dogma. Brown ignores the dogma and presents some of the same concepts.

Regardless of their different approaches it seems that they agree on the need to release both guilt and fear.

Try both books one should work for you.

I agree...NO ONE steals from self-help books. Afterall, they are written with the intention of helping anyone who wishes.

I have read a number of Sylvia's books and though I can't say I've enjoyed EVERY one of them, this one resonnates with me. It's a little book written in Sylvia's, matter-of-fact style. She writes as if she were speaking to you and I like this. It is so straight forward...impossible to misunderstand or misinterpret where she is going.

Each chapter has written exercises to go along with it. It is my belief that if you DO follow what she tells you to do with these exercises...you WILL find out a lot about who you are and reinforce to yourself who you are NOT. so many of us have had labels lumped upon us through the years...we've accepted things because they may have come from our parents or other loved ones but in reality...we all know in our hearts what our true essences are. This book will help uncover them.

I tend to read a whole book before I go back and take it chapter by chapter but I would suggest to others, to follow her instructions to the letter. She hasn't gotten to where she is today by "stealing" from other people's ideas. Yes, a lot of what she does say is common sense...but I don't see a LOT of authors offering it.

I rate this book high on my list and will recommend it to the members of my site. It's inexpensive and if you are like me and need something to do at night OTHER than watch TV...try it. You'll make astonishing discoveries. I promise!

Building on the backdrop of her own life and that of a spiritualist psychic medium Browne teaches readers the importance of connecting with their higher self /god through various techniques and meditative practices. Although she references our connection with god, she does so in a non dogmatic fashion. Brownes understanding of this world and the challenges that she has personally faced and conquered, serve as reminder to the reader that we can all overcome life's difficulties by developing our spirituality and strengthening our connection with god. Her techniques and recommendations are designed to lead the reader to a higher understanding of their spiritual self in relation to this world and beyond. A well written and easy to understand book.

I think this book is a fine example of Sylvia's work. She clearly is trying to help people and not hurt them. This gives someone a good place to start. Sometimes the best teachers are those who can relate and have gone through things themselves. Otherwise, it's like someone saying I know how you feel when they really don't because they never experienced it. But if they went through the same thing, they can give advice from an experienced eye. I'd rather that than someone just telling me what to do because they learned it in some book or classroom. The title is "Lessons for Life" and Sylvia draws from her own lessons from life. Sylvia has said she is not psychic about herself. After all, she's here to learn too and I'm sure she's included in partaking in those lessons. Who is 100% accurate except God? She is human and only one person. She only receives information she is supposed to receive. If she doesn't receive it, she's not suppose to know about it. And sometimes like electronics, I'm sure there is static. We could go on and on about the predictions from all over the world she didn't make since she's been living. But why not focus on the ones she did and the people she has helped? Also, just because something is not seen or proven doesn't necessarily mean it's not there. Radio waves and things of that nature are not seen, but are there. And there are many, many accounts of people who have unexplained experiences. In my opinion this book is helpful and no matter where the information came from, if it helps at least some people it was worth it.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SAYING THIS BUT I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. WHOEVER SYLVIA BROWN SHE IS AMAZING. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING BOOKS I'VE READ IN YEARS. SHE DOESN'T MAKE ANY APOLOGIES FOR HER STRAIGHT FORWARDNESS NOR HER BELIEFS. I QUESTIONED A FEW BUT AFTER FINISHING THE BOOK I'M ANXIOUS TO PICK UP ANOTHER BOOK WRITTEN BY HER.

SHE'S SUPPOSEDLY KNOWN AS A PSYCHIC...AND THAT WHOLE PSYCHIC HOOPLA HAS ALWAYS TURNED ME AWAY.. BUT THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT HER WRITING THAT RESONATES WITH YOUR SOUL ALMOST AS IF YOUR SOUL RECOGNIZES PURE TRUTH WHEN IT REACHES IT.

I SAY PICK IT UP AND GIVE IT A READ, TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY.

I found this book to be just what I needed it to be. Feeling trapped and depressed it bought me back to life and made me realize I am the one in control of my happiness and in how others treat me and in who I allow in my life. Once again I have to hand it to Sylvia, just the fact that positive things are happening to me now, proves to me whatever powers she possesses, she has the power to make me feel good about myself.!!! Isn't that the most important thing in life? Highly recommended reading
