When I first took up this book the title intrigued me. It made me ponder as to what it was that had influenced many people like Einstein to practice gratitude. And so, I decided to embark on this journey of Magic.

In Byrne’s book, “The Magic” she drills down into the power of gratitude; practice gratitude every day, Byrne teaches and your life will transform. Rhonda Byrne is the bestselling author of The Secret Book Series, wherein ‘The Secret’ taught the world the law of attraction,’ The Power’ unleashed the law of love and its third installment ‘The Magic’ converse about the law of gratitude. Byrne walks you through how gratitude affects each area of life- health, wealth and relationships. The book is separated into 28 sections and you are to read one section each day and do the appropriate assignments with each of them.
When I first took up this book the title intrigued me. It made me ponder as to what it was that had influenced many people like Einstein to practice gratitude. And so, I decided to embark on this journey of Magic. This book has 28 magical practices that have been specifically designed so that you learn how to practice gratitude to dissolve problems and revolutionize your health, money, job, relationships and to make your smallest desires and biggest dreams come true. Each practice involves being grateful and filling your life with magic in various different aspects. This process makes us thankful of the things in life we take for granted.
The book is very practical and factual. The author herself has been a specimen to these experiments and found drastic changes in her life. There will always be sceptics about this type of book, but the proof is in the pudding. The 28 days exercises leaves you feeling differently about life – more optimistic, more joyous and more appreciative. Though some points in the book are repetitive and the author’s implication that bad stuff will happen to you if you don’t follow the law of gratitude gives the reader a shocked revelation. Also, the repetitions in a 272 page long read, makes the reader slog through the book.
Overall, I really enjoyed the journey of reading this book and feel more at peace. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in manifesting love, abundance and blessings into their life. The author tells us that being grateful is not about saying an occasional thank you but rather feeling it from the depths of your heart.
