In this fresh, inspiring book, Victoria Moran gives you the tools and techniques you need to start living your own charmed life now."


I'm generally not a fan of self help books but when Caitlin of FSB Associates asked if I would like to review Victoria's book, I said yes. "Living a Charmed Life", written by inspirational speaker and certified life coach, Victoria Moran, gives you practical advice and suggestions for living a better life. Surprisingly enough, I discovered I already use most of the tips suggested, such as - be yourself, positive affirmations, savor your alone time, think positively, not feeling guilty, just be in the moment whether you are washing dishes or exercising. Also tidbits about detoxing your body and your life, The 50 chapters are short essays of about 3 to 5 pages and include personal tidbits about Victoria's life and how she incorporates living a charmed life.


Other suggestions that I hadn't thought about- Adding a splash of red to your life, whether it be clothes, home or office.

"Red is the charmed-life color because it lets the world know that you're here and that you deserve some attention."


or write yourself a life list of things you want to do and refer to it often. She quotes a favorite author of mine, Napoleon Hill who wrote "Think and Grow Rich" who said "If you can conceive it, you can achieve it."

Similar to a bucket list of things you want to do before you die.

"Adair (her daughter) had stumbled onto the phenomenon of the life list, a document stating all the things you want to do, see, and learn during the rest of your time on earth. On one level, it's a plan of action, but there is a metaphysical dimension to it as well. 'There's power in putting what you want on paper: it sets your intention, makes it concrete,' says life coach Barbara Biziou, author of The Joy of Ritual. 'A life list is also a direct communication with Spirit because it's a way to put out clear energy. You can only get help when you're clear about what you want." (pg 122-123)
