Excellent Book for Putting Your Life in a Positive Direction!

The author does a great job showing how we each have the power within ourselves to activate our joy. Throughout the book, he weaves in his personal stories of experiencing the throes of victimhood and clawing his way forward to discover the resources and frame of mind to break through and step-by-step build a life of joy, meaning, and fulfillment. His 12 Missions at the end of the book are a real how-to kit for creating physical, emotional, and relationship health — ingredients we all need to live a joyful, fulfilling life. If you too want to experience such joy, get this book!

A Book Filled with Awareness, Healing, and Love!

In his new book Activate Your Joy, bestselling author Erik Ohlsen will awaken your super powers with an exciting and innovative approach.  With an open heart and a quiet mind, I urge you to read and absorb each and every word of his vision, connection, transformation and regeneration. If you do, I can promise you your life will change to a joyful existence full of gratitude.

He is a master of weaving the natural world as healer with our own inner abilities to heal ourselves. The author takes you to a place of inner peace and present moment awareness by absorbing the grounding energy from nature by listening to birds, observing wildlife, and smelling blossoms to calm and regenerate your soul.

Mr. Ohlsen speaks my language. As a pet loss grief specialist I encourage my clients to find the healing abilities of the natural world when they are experiencing loss of their beloved companions. Then blend the powers of nature with their inner and innate abilities to find the reality of those raw and tough moments of grief and loss.

The author speaks of this in length and offers ways to activate joy in your life and awaken your life purpose. He states “We will go directly to the source of love and the power of awareness which is always accessible to you.” Through his own personal experiences with loss and grief, transformation, and finding joy, he guides you to access what is available for you in every moment—Love.

A Roadmap to Design Your Life

Activate Your Joy, by Erik Ohlsen, is a wonderful roadmap for designing the life we would like to live based on self-discovery, acceptance, and transformation. It’s a “choose-your-own-adventure,” allowing the reader different tools and practices that lead to deep changes in the way we view the world, and ourselves.

By sharing his own stories of vulnerability, challenges, and growth, Ohlsen invites us to look closely at what our own limiting beliefs and patterns in life that we have unconsciously developed and are holding us back. We all too often fall into playing roles, such as the Victim or the Savior. Activate Your Joy offers many tools to transform our mental framework into assets for a more fulfilling life.  “When I finally broke free from the shackles of my thinking, when I chose truth over story, what I discovered was pure love,” shares Ohlsen.

Each chapter is associated with a Mission at the end of the book, making this an excellent cross between storytelling and a self-help guidebook. A mind map poster and playbook accompany Activate Your Joy to creatively discover more ways we can live the life we desire.

Ohlsen brings his geniuses as an expert permaculture designer to this book in the way he explains how to design our dream life. He uses examples from his own life’s journey to help us map our own path we wish to follow. Through conscious design, we can bring the life we dream of into reality. Resilience, responsibility, and practical steps are just some of the gifts that this book has to offer.

I recommend Activate Your Joy for anyone seeking to make their life more fulfilling and satisfying. This would be a great book to have in schools to get people at an early age directing their path in life based on self-confidence, love, and compassion.

The Best Book I’ve Read On the Subject in Years!

When a person loses the ability to experience joy in life, there is a little anyone can do for that person. Therapies and most books rarely help, because this person is too vulnerable to allow even an author too close to his suffering. Erik Ohlsen in Activate Your Joy creates a gently lit up path for that person. He doesn’t point fingers or judges the reader. He shares his own story not to be admired but simply to show his understanding. He offers to make the steps towards joy and allows the reader to willingly follow in his footsteps.

Erik narrates the book with an Earthy voice and brings nature along the side of his words. I loved reading his personal stories especially the ritual he had performed with his girlfriend before he proposed. This book is by far the best book I have read on the subject in years.
