Product Description

Product Description

He's read the palms of celebrities and VIPs including President Barak Obama. Now for the first time celebrated palmist, psychic and life coach Gary Markwick is taking readers by the hand as he leads them on a mind-expanding journey to a deeper, more harmonious reality.

Now It Begins is a comprehensive self-help book that draws upon personal testimony, professional guidance and the best of New Age thinking to empower people to fully take control of their lives.

Split into 10 distinct “phases” it systematically tackles some of life's biggest and most personal questions about identity and interconnectivity, love and fear, and choice and destiny.

Arguing that most of us are trapped in a harmful illusionary world of our own subconscious creation, Markwick urges readers to break the mental chains holding them back and by exercising the gift of choice take responsibility for their own future happiness.

The author is there every step of the way to provide a clear and accessible path through the clutter of negative thoughts and day-to-day distractions on to the end goal of self-realisation.

At the heart the title is the simple assertion that once you can let go of illusion and draw upon a more fundamental, universal source of motivation, then you will reconnect with your true purpose on earth.

Illustrated throughout with ancient learning and pithy stories that gently bring home the important points being made, Now It Begins will consistently inspire and encourage people on their exciting journey to freedom and fulfilment.

The world is now on the verge of a great spiritual awakening and everybody owes it to themselves, and their neighbours, to tap into the limitless energy of the moment and bring about a lasting change for the better.

------------------------

After the success of his first book 'Now It Begins', Gary Markwick has ventured into the world of docu/fantasy, chronicling the life and times of his grandfather's adventures in America, Canada and Europe.

With his new offering, the 'Adventures of The Great Marlo and The Blue Pearl' Gary has opened up a 'Pandora's Box' of delights. Journey with 'The Great Marlo', Marko the Magician and the many friends and foes they meet along the way, experience the thrills and spills of life on the edge as well as the spiritual enlightenment that comes their way.

The story unfolds, as seen through the eyes of David - "The Great Marlo", who left his home in Edinburgh, Scotland at the age of 12 to join a travelling circus where he met Marko a magician who tells him the story of 'The Blue Pearl'.

Deep below the surface of Buddha's birthplace in Lumbini lies the sacred Buddha Stone, which holds the secret of the Blue Pearl!

What is the secret that the Blue pearl possesses?

Through his adventures all is uncovered and brought to light

Filled with mysticism and intrigue the great adventure unfolds, covering the period from the late 1800's to the 1960's and crossing the continents of India, USA, Canada and Europe. We see truth and enlightenment on a spiritual journey revealed before our eyes.

David Galloway Lindsay later became well known as an escapologist (The British Houdini) a magician, a palmist, and a performer with mind reading skills. Working with his son Roy, and later on his daughter Georgina, he performed with the BBC and theatres around Great Britain, and some parts of the USA, going on to become famous as "The Great Marlo and Georgina".

This is a book like no other you have read before, part documentary, part fantasy it manages to mix the two in a sympathetic and bold manner that leaves the reader hanging out for more.

Gary has previous writing experience including penning a well-respected workshop on the 'Law of Attraction', a Stress Management workshop and Meditation with Sound Healing. He is based in Camden, London.


In his capacity as a talented singer/songwriter, Gary has performed at venues including, the Glastonbury festival, live on radio and had singles released in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book is amazing! 12 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I've already recommended "Now It Begins" to a couple of friends and highly recommend it to everyone who is concerned to develop spiritually.

The book covers miscellaneous issues thus everyone will find their topics of higher interest. As for me all the topics are equally interesting and I enjoyed reading Garry's interpretation of the facts.

The style is enjoyable - simple and comprehensive and yet sophisticated.

When I was reading the book I had the feeling that it had been written especially for me, or that the book has been written by me. Sorry, Gary, I've meant it to be a compliment for you...:) I just wanted to say that your book reaches the hearts of the readers.

Thank you to the author and to everyone involved in the process of creating this product!

Good luck to you!

P.S. I'm flattered to be the first one to write the review of the future bestseller!!!:)

I don't usually read these sorts of "self help" books but I had met Gary and found him to be really interesting and I was curious about the book so I downloaded it, and was glad I did! I enjoyed reading it and it made me think about different aspects of my life and things that I could do to improve my life which I don't think I would have had I not read it.Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring 9 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book inspirational. Gary writes about everything I have believed in all my life and inspires us to look deeper within ourselves to find contentment from within. Having met Gary, I feel his style of writing mirrors him, warm and friendly helpful and enlightening. I read this book in one day and felt Gary had fused some of his energy into the words on the pages.
I have tried to read similar books in the past but found I could not relate to what the writer was saying at all.
This book however, is easy to read and for me opens up thinking on many subjects, giving us examples and ideas as to how we may grow and aspire to help ourselves and others.
Gary shows us that the answers lie within ourselves and we only have to dig a bit deeper to unlock them.
I went to work and bubbled over with enthusiasm for what I had read. I have recommended this book to my workmates and friends. Thanks Gary for such inspiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now it Begins 26 Oct 2012
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
I like reading self help books because you never know when you're going to come across something which will really improve your life. This book is interesting because it covers so many different aspects of self help and alternative thinking and healing. The most important thing about it is that it emphasises the fact, which is often overlooked, that you can only change yourself, not others.
It is arranged in ten sections:
Phase One - changing your life
Phase Two - changing the way you think
Phase Three - allowing, accepting and achieving
Phase Four - being in the present moment
Phase Five - feeling good about yourself
Phase Six - being content
Phase Seven - sixth sense
Phase Eight - cycles of life
Phase Nine - now is the only time
Phase Ten - the higher self
There are also some stories to illustrate the points made and a short autobiography of the author.

I really liked the way the author concentrated on improvement in the here and now, because `now' is all we have. There are sections on forgiving people from our past and moving on so that the lack of forgiveness does not poison the present. The section on how thinking affects your life was also interesting and definitely worth trying even if you don't completely believe it will work.

There is a section on stress and how it affects us physically and mentally. I found the section on being content of particular interest to me. It is so easy to concentrate on plans you've made for the future and end up feeling discontented about the present or to focus on the bad things in your life and lose sight of the good things. Contentment is worth having even if to many people in the modern world it seems a boring idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be kind and open to the world... 28 Aug 2012
By OksanaK
Format:Paperback
I went to see Gary with my husband to have a palm reading but we also had bought his book "Now It Begins". Before this book I have already read numorous amount of spiritual books. I haven't finished the book yet but can say that language is very easy and it's easy to grasp its ideas nevertheless for someone who hasn't read something similar it could be hard to understand. There are a lot of interesting concepts and this book will be good to read out of curiosity. If you want to know why things in your life are the way they are and want to develop spiritualy then this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now it Begins by Gary Markwick 27 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
This is a spiritual self-help book that covers some very interesting topics that will help the reader gain spiritual knowledge and awareness, that will change the way you think about life and really make you think about all aspects of life and how we can bring out the best in ourselves to help us live more fulfilling lives and to understand life much better.

This is a really amazing book to read. It gives you a really good insight into life. I personally can take a lot from what Gary says in this book and learn from it to help me grow and develop more as a person and use this in my everyday life. I am certain this will be the same for all who read this book. The book is easy to read, no long jargon; everything is explained and easy to understand. This is one of the best spiritual self-help and awareness books I have ever read. It you are looking to be inspired, enlightened and uplifted then this is the book for you.
