About the Author

Noah Elkrief helps people to quickly and easily lose their emotional suffering through 1-on-1 counseling, books, Youtube videos, and blog posts. His book, "A Guide to The Present Moment", has been downloaded by over 100,000 people. Noah runs a video blog at that gets over 25,000 monthly visitors, and he has a Youtube channel that has over 100,000 subscribers and gets over 350,000 monthly views.

From the time Noah was just six years old, he started meditating every day. While devoting himself to meditation, Noah also managed to achieve worldly success as he worked on the trading floor at Goldman Sachs in New York, traveled around Europe as a corporate strategy consultant based out of London, and was accepted into the prestigious Mensa society.

In the summer of 2009, Noah's life drastically changed when, in one moment, the vast majority of his thoughts just vanished from his mind. Without almost all of his thoughts, Noah was left with the indescribable experience of peace, freedom, and wholeness that he had always been longing for. As it turned out, this wasn't just a passing experience, and almost all of his thoughts barely attempted to return. 

Once Noah's mind had become predominantly silent, any time a new thought entered his mind and tried to create suffering, he could see very clearly how the thought wasn't true. What he discovered was that when he didn't believe his thoughts, his thoughts stopped creating emotions, and they stopped taking his attention. That left Noah with the virtually uninterrupted experience of peace. Noah then left the corporate world to dedicate his life to helping others to live in peace,

As a Social Worker I'm often recommending books to clients. Clients enjoy reading during their journey in therapy as it helps clients feel more engaged in the therapeutic process and we tend to talk about the book in session. I always recommended one book to my clients, when they asked for a book that had changed my life about ten years ago. I only mention this book because until I read Noah's book I had never read another book that has ever come close to making me feel so empowered and filled me with such hope as Noah's book did.

I read Noah's book three times. I did this because I was surprised by the reaction I had when I first read it that I needed to read it again. I had the exact same reaction as I did to the other book I mention above years back. This reaction consisted of feelings of extreme calmness, slow breathing, I was at peace, I felt empowered; positive. But why? How could a book do this? It's just words! What was happening? And then I realized.... Noah's book was literally making me aware of my breathing, of my actual circumstances, of the actual moment and in that particular moment I was enjoying a nice, sunny Saturday at home with my amazing fiancé, with my dog, my life in order, things were great. I was happy. I could enjoy this because I was in the moment and I could see this! Why couldn't I see this always? I began to wonder why it felt short lived as if it was about to go away and I needed to take it all in. I thought about how I speak to clients every day about this exact concept and how I say to them they have to work on being in the moment and feeling the moment more but then I forget to do this myself? Yes, it turns out I did. I'm human it turns out. I have to retrain my brain to "check in" with the moment and myself.

I have been dealing with mental health issues for years, most of which were so severe that I couldn't function right. I happened upon this book one night when I was looking for free reading material. This was one of those special promotions; but, it ended up being far more special than just a free download. This book literally saved my life! I discovered, both through this book and recent real-life experiences, that the main point established in this book is the cold, hard truth - "Thoughts, not circumstances, create actions." Since then, I have started thinking more clearly, not to mention the fact that my temper is under control. Best of all, this book helped me get over my ex, three years after we broke up and I had moved on with someone else. My feelings towards my ex were causing problems in my current relationship for a long time. Not anymore.

A Guide To The Present Moment has showed me how to live in peace, as opposed to just how to experience peace. The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle helped me to experience the wonderful peace of just being here in the Now. And I loved that. But, no matter how hard I tried, I wasn't able to make this peace my normal experience. I would have to make an effort to focus on the present moment. But I definitely wasn't living in the moment.

Now that I have read Noah's book, I can now say that I know how to live in peace, and not just have these momentary experiences of happiness or peace. Through the 5 steps that Noah describes, I have managed to disbelieve a lot of the thoughts that were making me unhappy. So I don't need to focus on the present moment to be happy, I'm already happy because I don't have many of the thoughts that were making me stressed and worried about what others think. If you want more peace in your life, I highly recommend this book.

I came across Noah Elkrief on You Tube. No product or subscription, just a guy so happy that he wants to help others. This book is so powerful in explaining what causes suffering and what leads to happiness. It’s similar to Byron Katie’s The Work but I find it even more helpful in that it walks me through more steps and really guides me to see how our thoughts create our suffering and not circumstances.

So many spiritual authors spread the message that our natural state is pure joy and that our suffering comes only when we are attached to thoughts. Noah’s book really digs deep into understanding this and realizing that there is no exception to this rule. I highly recommend getting this book as well as going on Noah’s website. It is full of so much helpful information. From videos to passages as well as the online 5 step process to walk you through any emotion you don’t want. And what’s great is that he provides this all for free.

After reading the book description, I was a little skeptical and confused about the ability to "disbelieve" thoughts as the author describes. But I decided to read the book almost purely out of curiosity. And I'm really glad I did. In this book, Noah Elkrief walks you through how thoughts create emotions, and takes you through a 5-step process for how to stop believing the thoughts that make us suffer and prevent us from living in the moment. Noah shows you how to relieve stress through a process of "direct discovery", and I was actually able to identify and stop believing a number of thoughts that were making me feel stressed at work and cause me to have anxiety about the future. Surprisingly, each time, this gave me an instant feeling of relief or lightness. This type of thing is completely new to me, but the book made everything so clear that every concern I had was addressed at some point or another (mostly at the end). I now feel much more equipped for how to deal with anxiety in my life.
