- near-death experiences,
- communicating with loved ones on the other side,
- healing from illness,
- a-ha moments,
- signs from the universe,
- and so much more!
While the experiences themselves vary greatly, each of these moments transformed the authors and connected them to something much bigger than themselves.

The world can be a beautiful place where goodness abounds. But sometimes, when we see all the negativity and divisiveness in the news, it's easy to feel discouraged and disheartened, wondering what happened to the caring world we want to be part of.
Now more than ever, it's important to look for, find, and celebrate the many examples of good-hearted people expressing kindness...every day, in endless ways.
This book includes 365 true stories (from over 275 authors) of people all over the world expressing kindness. These stories will lift your spirits, restore your faith in humanity, and remind you that goodness truly does abound.
The real-life examples of goodness described in this book include:

- feeling cared for by family, friends, and neighbors
- being truly appreciated by a teacher or co-worker
- witnessing a community come together for a worthy cause
- seeing a charity make a positive difference in people's lives

Ready to Open Up to the Magic That Surrounds You?
Have you ever received a sign from the universe, a piece of divine guidance, or a seemingly commonplace message that helped you steer your life in a better direction?
In this fifth and final book from the bestselling 365 Book Series, over 200 beautiful souls each share a meaningful message that they received, from either here on Earth or beyond, that helped to shift their life in a positive way. It’s our hope that reading these messages will inspire you to be on the lookout for messages in your own life, too! The 365 messages shared within these pages range from the miraculous to the mundane (but still important), from the spiritual to the secular, from the subtle to the dramatic.
Some examples include:
- receiving loving guidance from the other side (e.g., God, the universe, a loved one who has passed, your angels, spirit guides),
- getting a tangible sign that came just when you needed it most,
- having a conversation with someone (a friend, family member, or even a complete stranger) that steered you in a more positive direction,
- hearing your soul’s wisdom loud and clear,
- and so much more!
While the experiences themselves vary greatly, each of these messages transformed the authors and helped them connect more deeply to their life. These true-life stories (one page each – for quick inspiration!) were written with love and infused with the intention that you’ll be on the lookout for soulful messages of your own and that you’ll be open to receiving them when they show up in your life!
In this book, over 250 beautiful souls share such life-changing moments - experiences that inspired, uplifted, shook us to our core, got us back on track (or onto a new track altogether), and led us toward our true selves.
The 365 inspiring stories include:
- discovering your purpose,
-experiencing a spiritual awakening,
-leaving a job/relationship/home/religion to follow your soul's whispers,
-bravely opening up to love,
-receiving messages from beyond,
-tapping into your inner strength,
-finding the beauty and wisdom in all of life, even in the difficult moments,
-and so much more!
While the experiences themselves vary greatly, each of these moments transformed the authors and helped them shift in a positive way. These true stories (one page each - for quick inspiration!) were written with love and infused with the intention that you'll be able to discover the beauty in your own life shifts, too.
In this book, over 200 beautiful souls -- including bestselling authors Jodi Chapman, Dan Teck, Arielle Ford, Peggy McColl, Christy Whitman, and Carol Tuttle -- share how they connect with their soul with the hopes that it will help you connect with yours as well.
There are 365 ways to connect with your soul inside this book, including meditative practices, being in nature, playing and creating, receiving messages from loved ones on the other side, changing your thoughts, raising your vibration, spending time with your pets, and so much more!
Our soul is our lifeline to the universe, and staying connected to it helps us stay connected to all that is. This book shows that connecting with our soul can be easy and doesn't have to take a lot of time. There's no right or wrong way to read it! You can flip through at random -- letting your soul lead the way -- or you can read one passage each day.
Whether you're already plugged in and are looking for fun ways to deepen your connection, or you are feeling disconnected and are looking for loving ways to plug back in, this book is the perfect tool to support you in aligning with your soul and the universe at any given moment!

If there were 20 people contributing, the editor would be happy. More than 70 did.
They worked with the suggested themes of career, finances and relationships—and were asked to keep entries to 200 words or less. (More difficult than it sounds.) They embraced the challenge to provide readers with mini-doses of inspiration—whether read in one sitting or one before bed each night.
They submitted their pieces within a tight timeline. They took part in a two-hour editing marathon and watched as their writing was reviewed and polished to shine brighter.
They cheered with every update and marveled at their own ability.
These authors are success stories in themselves.
Now we share with you the results of that weekend: the inspirational essays, narratives and insights about success in relationships, career, finances and life. Our intention is this book will empower and uplift you, too, to be your better self and let your success shine.

That was the prompt for this edition of The Community Book Project. A group of 100+ contributing authors answered this question in 200 words or less. Their entries are gathered here. This book includes stories about living out loud (and on your own). There are tales of friends and flags and even one about online dating.
Take them in and think about this question, too: What does independence mean to you?
