GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:

The #1 bestselling phenomenon with millions of copies sold around the world — now with a guide to creating your own Celestine Prophecy experience. 

You have never read a book like this before–a book that comes along once in a lifetime to change lives forever.

In the rain forests of Peru, an ancient manuscript has been discovered. Within its pages are 9 key insights into life itself — insights each human being is predicted to grasp sequentially; one insight, then another, as we move toward a completely spiritual culture on Earth. 

Drawing on ancient wisdom, it tells you how to make connections among the events happening in your life right now and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come. The story it tells is a gripping one of adventure and discovery, but it is also a guidebook that has the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where you are in life and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimism as you head into tomorrow.

Praise for The Celestine Prophecy 

“A gripping adventure story filled with intrigue, suspense, and spiritual revelations.” – Commonwealth Journal

“A spiritual classic…a book to read and reread, to cherish, and to give to friends.” – Joan Borysenko, PhD, author of Fire in the Soul

“In his inimitable style of great storytelling, Redfield opens us up to a world of insight, inspiration, synchronicity, and power.” – Deepak Chopra

 

MY THOUGHTS:

I have to say at first I was so confused as to where this book was going to take me. I was thinking it was going to more of a spiritual, self-help type of book. I was surprised to see it was told as an actual story of self discovery. I found the 9 insights extremely profound yet simple.

I’m not gonna say I had a huge epiphany while reading this one, but I definitely found it insightful. I loved the way it made me think about how I could incorporate these insights into my daily life. I also need to say the writing isn’t the best, but it really spoke to me and I loved being on this “journey”.

Overall I would recommend this one to people who enjoy reading about others’ spiritual journeys. If you aren’t into spiritual reading this is probably one I would skip. If you can take it for what it’s worth, just enjoy the story.
