Another great offering by Bernstein, this is a collection of 108 brief, assorted, daily focuses - some intentions from Course in Miracles, some meditations from Kundalini yoga, and some creative activities of her own making (or further borrowings) - all designed to guide the reader to live more fully, with less stress and ego, and more love and peace.

I would not ordinarily feel drawn to a book entitled "Miracles Now"; I can both appreciate the religious importance of miracles and understand what might drive a person to believe in them but I remain skeptical that they ever truly occur. The subtitle, however, captured my interest and ultimately sums up the book's content: "108 Life-Changing Tools for Less Stress, More Flow and Finding Your True Purpose."

Gabrielle Bernstein describes quick and simple ways of tackling a variety of common mental difficulties, from stress and insomnia to job worries, stage fright and learning when to say "no." In her first section, she gives readers a powerful mantra: "Happiness is a choice I make." Subsequently, she expands on this premise and offers ways to surrender obsession, release irrationality and respond with peace. Each brief but satisfying chapter contains a clear few paragraphs describing quick and easy techniques like short meditations, breathing exercises and positive affirmations.

"Miracles Now" also keeps social media junkies in mind. Each section ends with a 140-character summary (perfect for tweeting) and Bernstein even gives advice to those harassed by unpleasant Facebook posts: “Forgive and delete”. Reading Bernstein's book may not result in world peace of a cure for cancer but it does prove that miracles can start small, with a deep breath, a smile and a touch of optimism.
