Publisher's Write-Up

What if each day, for the rest of your life was the best day possible for you? Imagine living up to your full potential, discovering amazing things about yourself and tapping into your hidden resources. With the practical techniques in The Spiritual Guide for the Really Busy Person, no matter how busy you are, you can begin to awaken to a new vision of yourself and the world around you.

The first thing most people said when I told them that I was writing this book was " I hope that it won't have too much stuff in it. " No it won't" I would reply. "It's for busy people". Most of the steps in this book can be easily incorporated into a regular, busy day without taking up any extra time. Do bear in mind however, that incorporating anything new into your life takes time, discipline and practice. And yes, patience.

In this fast-paced, 24/7 type world, many things can get left behind; spirituality is usually among them. This book aims to change that.

The first step for any person is to decide just what they want out of life. What is their heart's desire? Is it better to be happy, or to have a closer relationship with the Creator? Then come a series of things that anyone can do during the day to incorporate spirituality into their lives.

When you get up in the morning, take several deep breaths and some stretching exercises to get yourself ready for the day. Try singing, or yoga or colour visualization. During the day, think before you speak. Pay attention to where you put your energy. At noontime, take a moment of silence or say noontime prayers. It sounds like a cliché, but, on the way home from work, stop and smell the roses. Bless and appreciate your evening meal. Express your gratitude for the day just finished. At bedtime, send healing prayers to anyone who may need them. Write down things from the day for which you are grateful.

Included is a list of things that can be done at any time during the day. Take time to visualize your future. Replace meat products with natural alternatives. Stay Clean. Try not to take on too much.

Take the time to unclutter and reorganize. Remember where people are coming from emotionally. Stop worrying. In short, make the most of everyday.
Perhaps one of the reasons for all the strife and discord today is the decreasing importance of spirituality in people's lives.

This book doesn't push any particular religion or conception of 'God'. The suggestions included can be done by people of any religion. For anyone who wants to keep a spiritual connection in today's world, or anyone wanting to fix a 'broken' connection, this book is an excellent place to start. It's a very quick read, and it says a lot.
