Light Is The New Black

In a post earlier this month, I mentioned Light Is The New Black as being the most impactful book for me in 2018. When I came across excerpts from it on Instagram, I thought it was a new book. The more I read, the more I wanted to own it. It’s only when I got it did I realize that it isn’t a new book at all – it was published in 2015. But somehow, I was meant to come into my life and it did!

Book Description of Light is The New Black

Light Is The New Black is a guidebook for a new breed of women who are here to be bright lights in the world. These women are modern day lightworkers, who agreed at soul level to be here at this time in history, to bring us into the Age of Light (lead by spirit and the divine feminine).

At the Peace Conference in Canada in 2009, when the Dalai Lama said ‘The world will be saved by the western woman’, it was a call to action for women throughout the West. Light Is The New Black is a response to that call. It guides these women to come back home to who they are at soul level, and embrace their uniqueness so they can light up the world in a way that only they can. Gone are the days of following someone else’s well-trodden path. In order to succeed in this new age, everything must be an authentic expression of who we truly are. A down-to-earth, relatable mix of one girl’s journey, channeled messages from The Universe, practical tools, and metaphysical marketing for this new social age, this book will reconnect you to the core of your being, so that you can use it to change the world. 

What I love about the book

Light Is The New Black is the kind of book you can’t really read straight through. Instead, like me, you might carry it around and open to a random page and find the words speaking to you very loudly.

José always tells me that even if I get one thought or idea from a book then it’s totally worth buying it. Having given you an insight into what my life was in 2018, you’ll understand why these words from the book were priceless for me.

“There is a shift happening right now where anything inauthentic can no longer survive. The things in our lives that don’t serve us are crumbling. Relationships, jobs, social structures, or anything built on shaky ground is destined to tumble down. It’s happening to bring  us back home to who we truly are, so we can live a life that is in alignment with who we truly are, and who we came here to be.  But when you’re in the thick of it, it can feel like a personal attack from the Universe.”

As I keep reading and re-reading the book, I almost feel that it was written for me. When I read, Claire McAlpine’s review of the book,I sensed that she was equally influenced by it.

I’ve seen quite a few reviews by people who found that it was nothing new or repetitive. Perhaps, so. But I’m always of the opinion that when the student is ready, the master appears. Light Is The New Black came into my life when I was ready for it and I’m really grateful.

What’s the book that had the most impact on you in 2018?
