Banyen's Description: 

A chance encounter at a cocktail party 30 years ago changed Gay Hendricks’s life. A stranger asked him to imagine himself on his deathbed and consider the question, “Was your life a complete success?” If not, the stranger suggested, “What would be the things you’d wish had happened that would have made it a success?” When Hendricks mentioned a “lifelong blossoming of passion and creativity with a woman,” the stranger replied, “Okay, now turn the wish into a goal, and put it in the present tense.”

The stranger turned out to be spiritual teacher and astrologer Ed Steinbrecher, and Hendricks’s one wish became five life-transforming wishes. By framing them the way Ed showed him, they turned into five powerful affirmations that changed the course of his life, and have guided his life ever since. Over the years, every one of his five wishes came true. Transparent and honest, Gay’s personal examples of his wishes—lasting love, completing, writing from the heart, feeling God, and savouring life—and how he set out to manifest them are genuinely heartwarming.

In the many years since his conversation, Gay has expanded and refined this process. In the latter part of the book, he provides examples and stories of how others have used and benefited from it. Readers will find encouragement and resources here to bring this simple and powerful practice into their own lives.

The final chapter gives you a step-by-step guide to realizing your five wishes. There you’ll find space to write down your wishes and explore why they’re important to you. You’ll discover what’s been holding you back, and you’ll learn how to create plans for making your wishes come true.

See also Among Gay Hendricks’ many other books are The Big Leap and Conscious Breathing.

Publisher’s Description:
