Overview

Take the first steps toward your destiny and begin living the life you were meant to live today.

From brother and sister team Demian Lichtenstein and Shajen Joy Aziz comes an inspiring book that explores the basic but vital reality that we are each given a unique Gift, a purpose in our life that is always seeking to express itself. Find that Gift and you can experience joy, power, fulfillment, freedom and unconditional love in ways beyond your imagination.
 
Discover the Gift presents a simple roadmap to a journey of self-discovery that will, undoubtedly, change your life forever. Sharing their own heartfelt, personal stories of tragedy and redemption, Demian and Shajen introduce us to eight fundamental steps that will help you discover the gift within you—and prepare you to share that gift with others. Along the way you will receive both direction and support from a wide range of the world’s most influential transformational leaders, people from all walks of life who not only live their Gift every day, but who have made it their purpose to help you do the same. Among them: His Holiness the Dalai Lama; His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar; Mark Victor Hansen; Dr. Sonia Powers; Mary Manin Morrissey; Dr. Barbara De Angelis, Jack Canfield, and Michael Bernard Beckwith, to name just a few.

Inspiring as well as practical, Discover the Gift illuminates that place inside each of us where an extraordinary Gift awaits to come alive.

Your Destiny Awaits. Discover the Gift. It’s Why You’re Here.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The Gift is our unique way of expressing love, our unique way of revealing creativity, our unique way of alleviating suffering, our unique way of downloading wisdom and beauty and all of the transcendent qualities that are everywhere present. As individuals release their Gifts, they’re releasing the next stage of their own evolution and they’re activating that same vibration and frequency in others. It’s why we’re here.”
—Michael Bernard Beckwith

“The Gift is the essence of who we are; both the qualities of being, like love and joy, peace, harmony, authenticity, spontaneity and we each have unique talents. We’ve been given a set of talents that we might call our ‘core genius’ or unique abilities and each of us has I think the responsibility to develop those Gifts and to express them fully into the world.”                                                                         
—Jack Canfield

Discover the Gift is more than just an exquisite and uplifting film—it is a unique, transformational experience that will expand the mind, heart and consciousness of anyone who sees it...Discover the Gift is a gift for our time. It is to film what Oprah has been to television. It is in perfect alignment with my own work and life mission, and it is a true honor to be a part of it.”--Dr. Barbara De Angelis, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and Transformational Teacher
 
Discover the Gift is nothing less than a masterpiece. Demian Lichtenstein took his soul and offered it up to the world on every reel of his new film. I am honored to participate in the genius of this work of heART"--Janet Bray Attwood - New York Times Co-author of The Passion Test
 
“The most important spiritual transformational film on the planet.”—Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul series
 
“To the awesome twosome, Shajen and Demian, I want to thank you for the Gift you have given to the world and to me…. I hope you have on your spiritual seatbelts as your gift spreads around the world and into the entire universe. Thanks for sharing your story, revealing your pain and giving us permission to do the same.”--Rev. Sheila McKeithen

“Sure to be a word-of-mouth winner…. Discover the Gift follows the siblings’ [Lichtenstein’s and Aziz’s] journeys towards fulfillment, joy and unconditional love, as they reveal that we all have special gifts within us waiting to be awakened and shared. Theirs include storytelling and being visually creative. As well as their own uplifting and heartwarming stories, you’ll be inspired by the wisdom of more than 40 of today’s transformational leaders who share their experiences on finding and working with your gift.”

JACK CANFIELD

In the following pages we will help illuminate a fundamental truth that so often goes unexplored—that we are, each of us, given a unique Gift, a purpose in our life that is always seeking to express itself. Uncovering, nurturing, and allowing the miracle of your Gift to flourish enables you to experience joy, power, fulfillment, freedom, and unconditional love. This may sound like an extravagant promise but we have seen the power of this discovery in our own lives and in the lives of others.  What we hope to show you, though, is not that there are superpowers available to you through some exotic practice.  Instead, there is a simple path within each of us that will lead you back to your true self—this is where your Gift dwells.  Even though the concept of each person having distinct purpose in the universe is familiar, being able to find and develop one’s Gift has never been fully explored and explained as it is here.  

In each step of the journey you are about to embark upon we will share examples from our own experience as well as the insights of the many transformational teachers and spiritual leaders who have joined us in this project, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Mark Victor Hansen, Michael Bernard Beckwith, Barbara De Angelis, Lucia De Garcia, Jack Canfield, Marianne Williamson, Sonia Powers, and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

We have a special bond as brother and sister but (as is no doubt also true of your life) we have had to endure some pretty bad times along the way. As children we both suffered from intense psychological abuse inflicted by certain family members as well as from being sexually abused by people outside our family. At the ages of twelve and fourteen we lost our mother in a horrific car accident, our home to a raging fire, and our step-father to drugs, alcohol, and another woman. Ultimately we even lost each other to the pain, anger, and confusion that we were left to deal with on our own.
We survived.  In time we would rediscover each other and re-create our family because of an extraordinarily powerful transformation.  Today we are members of a family fully wrapped in unconditional love and support, more than ever before connected to each other, our family, and even the universe. Discover the Gift is the result of these profound experiences. 

The book goes into depth providing suggestions for your personal practice that will help you see new possibilities in your life.  Since everything is energy, a good understanding of how energy works

in and throughout the universe is essential to your practice.  You’ll come to understand how it operates according to certain universal spiritual laws and principles.

Though a great deal of attention has been focused on the Law of Attraction in recent years, it is vitally important to recognize that other equally important laws that govern our existence have been ignored.  It is our humble intention to show that all universal laws and principles (including Vibration, Attraction, Reciprocity, Abundance, Energy, and Unconditional Love) need to work together for a life of harmony and balance.  When we recognize the combination of forces at work in our lives we can better connect with a unified field of consciousness, something we call the Infinity Feedback Loop of Creation.  What you put into this unified field is what you will in turn receive from it.

Each chapter ahead will take you step by step through this journey of discovery, fully explaining what we mean by your “Gift,” showing how your mind, emotions, and conditioning can slow down your spiritual growth, how to discover your own unique Gift, the necessity of  sharing your Gift with others, why Energy and Adversity are so important in this process, how you are working toward one Ultimate Gift, and finally how the whole world can be affected by each of our inner worlds.  

When you discover and share who you truly are, it inspires others to do the same and a cycle is continued.  Everyone becomes an active player in the planetary shift in consciousness and the creation of a compassionate world.
