A book filled with affirmations that may be just what you need to read when you are in the process of healing, grieving, making a big decision or any time you need a reminder to choose to be brave.

9 thoughts on “BOOK CLUB: The Universe Listens to the Brave

  1. The Universe Listens to Brave is a delightful book, it is beautifully printed and bound and is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It is also perfect to be given as a gift. After reading this I must admit I have purchased 6 copies to be given to some of my own Brave Collective. I thoroughly enjoyed the way in which Rebecca Ray has formatted the division of themes and the inclusion of the affirmations or quotes between each chapter and the apparent honesty and humour with which the content is written. The following quote from The Universe Listens to Brave included in the Dear Reader letter by Rebecca Ray “I believe you’ll arrive at these pages when the time is right for you”, certainly felt true for this reader. Thank you Beauty and Lace Book club and Pan Macmillan Australia Publishers and the author Rebecca Ray for providing the opportunity to read The Universe Listens to Brave.

  2. The Universe Listens to Brave is a pretty book nicely presented. I found the pink writing difficult to read at night by the bedside light. That’s the only time I have to read. I like ‘self help’ books but I found this one a little lacking in inspiration. The book tells me to be Brave but then tells me its OK if I am not and I do see the wisdom of that but I was not inspired to improve my life. Up to half way in this book I thought ‘what a load of croc’ but then warmed a little to it by the end. I think it falls little short of being inspirational. That said, Its pretty and may make a nice gift for some. Not me. Rated 3/10.

  3. “The Universe Listens to the Brave” by Dr Rebecca Ray is a delightful book to hold, read and looks so beautiful.

    It would make a heartfelt gift for friends or family wanting to be courageous and brave.

    The book can be used in so many ways: as a guide for daily inspiration through the affirmations and intentions, through reading a chapter and being guided by the brave ritual or living the Brave Manifesto.

    This book has been written for “ones who seek to live with more courage”. Chapters covered in Dr Ray’s book are:
    • Acceptance
    • Fear
    • Uncertainty
    • Healing
    • Courage
    • Hope

    • Journey

    Dr Ray can be found on Facebook and Instagram which extends what you learn in the book, she is a writer, speaker and clinical psychologist who guides you to live a brave and inspired life.
    Thank you to Pan Macmillan Australia and Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to review and read this little book of inspiration.

  4. Thank you to Beauty and Lace and Pan McMillan for the opportunity to read this book.
    It is beautifully created, both aesthetically and the content of the book. It’s perfect for those times when you need a morale boost or if you want some inspiration. It is broad enough that it covers most areas of life but also has topics that you can jump to in certain situations.
    I started reading the book from cover to cover but found that I went ahead and skipped to specific sections that interested me in the moment. I wouldn’t necessarily use this as a daily inspirational guide but would certainly use it at times when I’m at a cross-roads or need to take a step back to assess situations. I’d give the book to some female friends but would be selective as to who I would give it to as I don’t think it is for everyone. I also wouldn’t necessarily share it with my male friends or partner as it is aimed more at women.

  5. Thank you so much to Beauty and Lace and Pan McMillan for the wonderful opportunity to read this book. It was a light but inspiring read. It hit a lot of truths and gave me reminders of things I do or don’t do that need some tweaking. The chapters were presented beautifully with some great themes including Acceptance, Courage, Hope, Trust & Journey and a few more. My favourite part was the meaningful quotes, mantras and words of wisdom that triggered a lot of ‘aha’ moments for me.
    It is a book that I know I will refer back to when I need a boost and reminder to be brave.

  6. The Universe Listens to the Brave is a gorgeous book. It came at the perfect time for me and really helped me put things into perspective. It’s beautifully presented and would make a gorgeous gift. The words of wisdom and affirmations left me with so much clarity. I have left it on my coffee table as an easy reminder to pick it up when I need to and guests have looked and commented on what a lovely book it is.

  7. What a lovely, positive and uplifting book – The Universe Listens to Brave, How Courage will change your Life. I like to leave it somewhere noticeable so that if the moment takes me, I’ll just open it up. I have started my own small business and some days, it is challenging, especially to stay motivated when I’m all alone. This books gives me a lift as I take the positive message and bring it into my world. It is sweet and beautiful.

  8. “The Universe Listens to the Brave” by Dr Rebecca Ray arrived at the perfect moment. I left my job of 23 years and am going through numerous job interviews at the moment, which I must admit have been very difficult. Reading this book has given me the courage to believe in myself and the feelings I am experiencing going through this process…..
    I love how you can open any random page and the message always applies!

  9. The Universe Listens to Brave by Rebecca Ray, came into my life at exactly the right time! If you are feeling stuck and looking for a bit of direction, this book will help. The steps were informative but easy to read, with excellent quotes that were relevant to each section. It goes through the initial steps of change such as acceptance, moving into healing and then the ability to rise and trust the self. So, if you need a bit of guidance with finding courage to change your life, then give it a read. This is definitely a book I will share with a friend.
