"Through the stories, meditations and unique practices in this book, you will learn exactly how to find and maintain inspiration in your daily life."
New Thought Magazine

"Our potential for happiness lies within ourselves. The Inspired Life: Unleashing Your Mind's Capacity for Joy is an inspirational read from Susyn Reeve as she shares her secrets to finding inspiration in life, and keeping that inspiration going strong and living life to its fullest. With much to ponder and much to drive ourselves forward, The Inspired Life is a strong addition to motivational and self-help collections for those who want the extra boost out of life."
—Midwest Book Review

"Reeve wants readers to be "in spirit" and in full co-creative partnership with Sour Energy/God. Readers are encouraged to make the choice to live an active, conscious life—their life—through stories and quotes that demonstrate the results of accessing one's brain and creating new pathways to support that desired life."
—The Phoenix Spirit

"It's reality based approach which I really liked and found refreshing. So often, books that seek to inspire tend to leave out that life can be messy sometimes. They forget that often those difficult times redirect us in positive ways. Moreover, that in going through dark days and nights of the soul, we have opportunities to understand ourselves and provide unconditional love."

So much of the world tells us what we can't do and what we won't be, but that doesn't mean that has to be the case. In THE INSPIRED LIFE Susyn Reeve reminds us that our lives is just that: ours to live and to make the most of.

Throughout the book the author gives not only instances from her own life and journey but those of others as well who have learned what it means to live the life intended for them, and how all of us can do the same. There are also amazing quotes sprinkled throughout that give us motivation to get started today to make the changes we want to see in ourselves and the world. "If you want to get from point A to point B," one of the quotes says, "you cannnot avoid starting where you are." The message of that quote allows us to see that some things can't be avoided, especially if we hope to move forward. To help the reader, there are spaces in the book to identify the areas that are a "work in progress" for you, and identify what it will take in order to get where we want to go.

It all begins with this question: "What is my vision of an inspired life?" What is it we want that we don't have. Only by answering that question can be get to the heart of what it will take to make it happen. This means action. We have to move forward and then work in line with our vision to make it a reality.

The great thing that THE INSPIRED LIFE reminds us of is that we are not on this journey by ourselves. There are others out there who want us to be the best we can be and are willing to give us the encouragement it takes to get there.

THE INSPIRED LIFE gives you the catalyst to realize that the alternative of being inspired is really not what we want. There's nothing worse than being confined to a life that has no purpose. No one should be happy with that. Let's all move forward on the journey to the life intended for us, realizing that there is nothing better than bringing your best to each and every day.

I recently gave Joan and Susyn's book to friends as presents. One friend, battling cancer, read it and reported afterwards that it was so hopeful for her and so uplifting at a time when she really needed it. She found comfort and solace in the pages of "that magical book". Another friend, going through some intense mid life issues of loss and financial worry, read the book almost in one sitting and now has a richer appreciation of the things IN her life and does not concentrate as much on the things she does not have--all because of the wisdom in Joans and Susyns book taught her how she, not others, are in charge of her life. I can highly recommend this gem to anyone as the teachings and real life stories in the book will surely resonate with all readers who seek inner wisdom and the tools to get there.

Format: Paperback
The Inspired Life is a gift, an offering to that deep part of ourselves that knows we're ready to begin a new and more engaged and engaging way of being. Each page of Susan Reeve and Joan Breiner's beautiful book offers something, a personal story, a thought provoking quote, an easy to do activity, or a hopeful reminder, to encourage us to be the creators of the lives we want to live. Their words are encouraging and the tone of the book holds optimism in every word, showing us how easily reachable our dreams are when we put ourselves in the hands of these two inspired guides and capable writers.

This is a great book for people who are wondering what's wrong in their lives but just can't put their finger on what's wrong. It will help you assess your life and determine appropriate adjustments in an easy to read, very informative way. I found a little trick of perspective or tool for retaining positive energy in ever chapter, and each one ends with an exercise for empowering your mind with the capacity to keep hope and willpower fresh. A wonderful read that nourishes the soul.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Keys and Candles on March 8, 2013
Format: Paperback
Not only did I love this book, but I feel like for once a self-improvement book actually helped me in the long run. The book is divided into great little sections on joy sabotages (things that hinder joy) and joy seeds (things that grow joy), which makes for a really uplifting and easy read. Reeve taught me how my brain works as well as providing insights and exercises to help me focus my life on joy.

I love self-improvement books because they leave me feeling inspired and passionate, but this is often a temporary high. However, a section in this book struck a cord so deep that it has changed the way I look at myself and my life. It wasn't just another resolution or a moment of possibility, but an actual redirection of my thought-process. Thank you so much.

One really can live an inspired life and this book shows you how. Susyn Reeve explains how the brain works in easy to understand terms and then provides exercises, stories and practices that bring about those changes you want to see in your life. Sometimes things are simple but not easy. This is both. Follow the book, or pick it up daily and allow the Universe to give you what you need at that moment. Either way, you will unleash your joy while creating an inspired life for yourself. It's that simple and it's that easy.
