Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In this self-help guide with a fantasy-fiction twist, sociologist, life coach, and O: The Oprah Magazine columnist Beck continues in the spirit of her earlier work, Finding Your Own North Star. Here, her clients' stories illustrate the progress and pitfalls of finding one's purpose in life. Their journeys, sparked by challenging exercises, are adventurous, and the narrative is hilarious. Beck also incorporates themes and outcomes that she explored earlier in her memoirs Expecting Adam and Leaving the Saints. Much of her advice, laid out in a three-stage process, may initially seem contrary, counterintuitive, or repetitive (e.g., telling your life story backwards). In the first stage, readers identify goals and eliminate obstacles. In the second, they envision the future, find messages in dreams, and forge a middle path between the past and the future. And in the final stage, they live their destiny, observing coincidences, working miracles, and breaking new trails. A concluding chapter shows the process at work in Beck's own life. While the author's New Age spirituality may put off some, her writing style will appeal to fantasy and adventure fans, not to mention the sizable audience who reads her O column.
—Lucille M. Boone

    How to Empower Your Life

    Steering by Starlight: Find Your Right Life, No Matter What! by Martha Beck is an empowering,wonderful book. Beck is a Harvard educated life coach. She writes: 'My goal in writing this book is to help you find your deepest sense of purpose--to give you back to yourself, since you are the ultimate arbiter of your own fate.' Throughout the book, there are lots of stories about her clients that illuminate her theories. Many might seem fantastic and over-the-top to the uninitiated, but as someone who has experience with many of Beck's work, I can assure you they are real. Beck writes about our three selves--essential, social and stargazer. The stargazer is the higher or true self it is the self imbibed with the knowledge of true destiny and purpose in life. The book is filled with exercises to uncover our destiny and purpose. She discusses three stages: *Dissolving: when you remove the blinders that prevent us from seeing our destiny * Dreaming: When we begin to align ourselves with our fate, we will experience magic, coincidences and more * Daring: Learning the work to make our destiny happen Beck mentions The Secret and how the essential message is 'everything you think about happens.' She struggled with that and came up with this: 'thoughts that come from the core of peace are magic, versus thoughts from our shallow outer limits of our psyches have little power.' I love that! She writes: 'Living space is a powerful metaphor for your life. Whether you know it or not, you can't change your life without changing your home, and vice versa.' I loved this, as it was a bit of coincidence/magic for me--I recently read Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet and the book has allowed me to change my house/change my life! This is a clear and concise guide to learning how to access your higher self, live proactively and reach your goals.

    Stellar

    I couldn't put Steering by Starlight down last night and read right through to the end. The greatest compliment from reader to author is greeting the dawn bleary eyed. This book is like my favorite soup at my favorite Chinese restaurant--full of unexpected and tasty things and sizzling rice. Steering by Starlight crackles with energy, humor, and wisdom! Martha has done it again.

    I Also Recommend:

    The best self-help book ever! It's changing my life already.

    I can't read this book fast enough or find a place to stop reading! It's definitely a life changer. Thank you Martha Beck for being such an awesome author. The exercises are challenging; but are a must. Thanks to my niece in New Zealand who recommended it to me. I've been telling my family & friends to get this book. My fears are disappearing one by one.
    What a great feeling to be able to get a real grip on my future. I'm on my way to my own North Star. Have always known I was a leader & teacher. The book has reaffirmed what my destiny is.
