Summary of Remembering the Light Within
Remembering the Light Within promises to be a handbook or guide to help you live an inspired life. Each chapter starts with some information and ends with suggested practices and exercises to help you become more self-aware and soul-centered.

What I liked about Remembering the Light Within

This book is well organized and provides the reader with clear, actionable practices or exercises to perform for each chapter. It is filled with personal experience stories to illustrate points and the writing has a clear personality.

What I didn’t like about Remembering the Light Within

Pretty much everything else. I only read as far as page 58 (out of 263). The content was just way too woo-woo and nebulous — I couldn’t bear to read another page. And this isn’t because I don’t like spiritually based books. I’ve liked ones I’ve reviewed before.

This doesn’t mean that you won’t enjoy it. Remembering the Light Within just isn’t my style of writing/reading and life is too short to read what I’m not enjoying — especially with the large library (and review book queue) I have at my disposal.

What I’d Love to See in the Second Edition

A bit more solid, down-to-earth writing with more accessible vocabulary. That said, the authors probably know their target market — and I’m not her.


If you like reading books that suggest you meditate on specific words and hold set intentions in order to find your “soul line,” then this book is for.

NOTE: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you’ve read past book reviews, you’ll know that I don’t pull my punches when I believe they are warranted. I also try to provide balanced information so you can make your own decision to read or not read the book, even if you disagree with my opinion.
