Why this book?

‘Feel and Be Inspired not Tired…’

See, I once heard that we are most afraid of what we can achieve and that fear alone can prohibit our success. But everybody has the ability to become the best version of themselves.

Why? You and I have a light inside of us… a light that can not only change your life but has the power to impact others… significantly. We have the right to operate on our highest potential and whatever it is we want to do in this world, we can use our light to truly ignite the flames.

Inside this book, I am hoping that you will discover that you have always had the power within you to become the person you are meant to be. While creating this book, I had the compelling thought to create my own quotations to relate to each chapter, to enhance the meanings conveyed throughout. Sometimes you may feel stuck in the darkness but remember that you are not alone. I have been that person stuck in the darkness for a very long time… I have put off something that truly mattered to me purely because I felt afraid of being judged.

I knew from a very young age that I wanted to write and always dreamed of writing my own book. Why did I feel that way? I knew that I enjoyed expressing myself through words and it made me feel happy. When something makes you feel happy, that’s a sign you’re on the right track. You are in alignment with yourself… you are on the right road of discovering who you really are, and you can then take steps to fulfilling your truest potential. That is what I’m hoping you can gain from reading this book.

In reviewing Gemma's book, I am reminded of the importance of keeping my heart clean, filled with love and an awareness of truth - that which is eternal. With truth and love inside, my vibrations reach my heart, head and vision which are all connected. Whatever I hold in my heart enters my head and affects my thinking. And, in turn, whatever I am thinking becomes visible in my eyes.

Gemma’s words are empowering and enlightening in a World rapidly forgetting the power of positive attitudes and simple kindness to others. In essence, Gemma’s argument is that positivity gives us agency, and that kindness benefits both all of us and the wider World. A compelling evidence base drawn from personal experience completes the picture, and we are left with the inescapable conclusion that Love and Light can save the World. Simply profound, and profoundly simple!

‘The Light Within You’ is a powerful construct and a force for good. As a child, I grew up knowing in my core LIGHT = Love Internally Generated Highlights Truth. This acronym wasn’t something I had read, but something I discovered in trying to find my own light, so that I could enable the children I taught to find theirs. As an adult, this was further confirmed by my faith, as a Christian. Taking this acronym, three key points emerge, and Gemma picks up on each of these in her book: #1 Love is the greatest power. This love needs to be expressed in thought and action to ourselves and others. Gemma’s book provides the reader with practical strategies and top tips to tap into love and make a positive difference in the world. #2 This love comes from within. So, it is with us wherever we go, whatever we are doing … just like our breath – a silent witness in the background. It is a process of using our life experiences and opportunities for discovery. I really appreciate the way, Gemma enables readers to reflect and discover. Her book provides direction, but ultimately the decision rests with the reader. It is empowering. #3 Love is an enabler. Gemma’s book is laden with hidden gems known as truths. These are more than just principles, universal values or laws. It’s about knowing who we are and our purpose. This is what helps us to thrive, dare to be exceptional and use our gifts/talents for a better tomorrow. I met Gemma through GGA. She most certainly walks the talk. It is a privilege to know her and the incredible way she inspires others to walk in their light too.
