7 Inspirations from Your Inner Angel 

Mia Tomikawa, editor and U.S. spokesperson for Invitation to Happiness...  

A new book by renowned spiritual leader and author Ryuho Okawa, Invitation to Happiness: 7 Inspirations from Your Inner Angel is a personal invitation and path to finding happiness and a more joyful and authentic life.  It is the introduction to a spiritual journey guided by the driving force that guides us through life and the secret to living true to ourselves —  our inner angel. We all have one, and each is our guide to spiritual happiness. The purpose of this book is to help the reader find joy by connecting with that inner voice, spirit, soul, or higher self.

“We have created a handbook for living a joy-filled, inspired life that marries spiritual thinking with practical involvement by the reader,” said Mia Tomikawa, who worked on the book, editing it for distribution throughout the United States and now serving as the book’s United States spokesperson. The book is written in a soft spiritual style that promises to attract a strong female reader demographic. The book will be embraced by those searching for joy, inspiration or a deeper spiritual connection. Also we expect it will be read by those who have found happiness despite it not being around them or in others.

So many of us are searching for joy, inspiration or a deeper spiritual connection.  “No matter how lonely we may feel, our angels are always trying to support us, help us, and encourage us, from heaven,” writes Okawa in Invitation to Happiness. “When we face difficulties, hardships and pain, they are there for inspiration, guidance, and protection. When we stand at an important crossroad, our inner angels lead us to the right path. And knowingly or not, we are continually embraced, nurtured, sustained by this magnificent force of love.”

Invitation to Happiness will provide a new discovery of self and perspective. It includes material to contemplate and an area to journal inspirations and discoveries about the book’s seven themes.  Offering practical tools for creating new habits for a more carefree, grounded, spiritual life. Through 7 inspirations, readers will be guided to the angel within — the force that supports them to be courageous, inspired, and true to themselves. They will find all the tools they need to live more confidently, peacefully, and authentically.

The 7 themes include:  A Calm Mind,  The True You,  Hardships and Failures, Gratitude, Forgiveness, A Joyful Life and Dreams & Goals. Some highlights in each of these areas include “Quieting Chatter in the Mind,” “Take Pride in Your Strengths,” Calm in the Face of Adversity,” “Living A Life of Kindness,” “The Courage to Forgive Yourself,” “Give the Gift of a Smile,”  and “Set Goals, Make Plans, Create Your Life’s Blueprint.”

The book, culminates with creating a life plan in which the reader will write down their objectives in life: short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals. It starts by making each goal authentic to the true self the reader discovered in chapter 1.

These seven themes within an Invitation to Happiness are:
