My Thoughts
Discover the Gift is a remarkable DVD and book set. You don’t have to get both, but I highly suggest that you do. Reading the book and watching the documentary really gives you the best of both worlds for the Gift.

The documentary for Discover the Gift is a visually stunning, and highly spiritual and motivational journey for your soul. Demian Lichtenstein really does a superb job directing this. It is similar to The Secret, but in a more relatable and visually appealing way. If you watched The Secret, and enjoyed it, or even if you didn’t quite get it, Discover the Gift gives you more applicable steps to reaching your Gift. I’ve watched the DVD a few times, and each time I find something else in it that I missed before. I think that this documentary should be watched multiple times as you are on your own personal journey to fully get the message.

The book for Discover the Gift was written by Shajen Joy Aziz and Demian Lichtenstein. On her own journey to discover her Gift, she realized that one of her Gifts was writing. It covers most of the same information as in the DVD, but it is written and gives you another way to discover your Gift. The eight steps to uncover your gift is easier to follow in the book, and allows you to reference when needed faster than you could find it on a DVD. Some of the beautiful artwork that is shown in the documentary is also included in the book, which I really love. The mandalas are gorgeous and can also be used to meditate with.

Watching the documentary and reading the book will have you laughing, crying, and hopefully on the journey to discover your Gift. If you’re lucky, maybe you can find out what your Gift is rather quickly. If not, keep watching the DVD and re-read the book. It will come to you, and when it does, you’ll know it and embrace it into your life.

Consider reading this review as your personal invitation to discover your personal Gift and to start fully living. I highly recommend both the documentary and the book for Discover the Gift.

I loved The Secret but never was able to really use it well. I like that you brought that up so I'm not the only 1 who had that problem and I hope this one would work for me too. I also think that my gift will take a very long time to show itself to me but I hope that the dvd will help me to find it. I thank you for sharing this with all of us.
