Reviews for 5-Second Genius
I have to admit that at first I thought the title was a bit of a hoax. How can anyone be a 5-second genius? But I was intrigued and bought the book anyway. I was relieved to discover that the title is anything but a shrewd marketing ploy! The author reveals how we are all capable of true genius & she actually shares how each of us has a tremendous amount of inner wisdom, most of which we don’t know or believe we have. Use the tools described by Young & settle in to experience some major “aha” moments of deep personal insight then prepare to welcome the sudden shift in your outlook on life as you feel an increased awareness & positive vibrations as you embark on a journey to heal the many wounds of the past!
I was amazed at the author’s insights into life, how to better understand what “truth” is, how to identify and correct the false conditioning we have all been subject to.
My eyes were opened to fascinating new concepts. I highly recommend this book. Your life will be forever changed, as mine was.
Life Changing Author and Book
This is the second book I have read of Ashira Young. The first, “An Angel for Olivia” is a delightful story for children and adults alike which incorporate spiritual concepts in a language a child can understand. “5-Second Genius” explores the depths of spiritual concepts in a comprehensive and practical way. Young offers unequivocal evidence that we all have unlimited wisdom laying in wait to be uncovered in our subconscious.
Her book is straightforward and insightful without being conventionally religious. She shares the truth about our divine connection to the Creator and how we can practically access that wisdom in a variety of ways to help guide us in living a more joyful and deeply satisfying life.
I am quite impressed with her insights. After reading the book, I came away reflecting on my life, and life in general in an entirely new way. It has had a profound effect on me. I highly recommend Young’s book.
I highly recommend her book.
We all think of geniuses as those few who have remarkable intelligence. Few of us could label ourselves as such. However, after reading Ashira Young’s book, she helps us to see that we are all geniuses because we have all been endowed with hidden wisdom that few of us are even aware of. She explains how we can tap into that unlimited wisdom which will spur us to see the world, our lives, and our challenges from a completely new and uplifting perspective.
The book is spiritual in nature but is not overtly religious in the conventional sense. We are all spiritual beings regardless of our religious proclivities. She is artful in showing the reader practical ways we can enhance our lives and receive inner guidance in making wise choices, beckoning “aha’ moments that can completely transform our lives. I highly recommend her book.

This book is beautifully written and illustratedThis book is beautifully written and illustrated! Though it is noted to be a children’s book, it certainly is relevant and meaningful for any age group. A walk of wisdom into the spiritual world is revealed as the story unfolds for this insightful, yet “typical” little girl who has an innocent yet inquisitive mind. Haven’t many of us had similar thoughts? Is what Olivia experiences and feels true, a fairy tale, or a vivid imagination? The author, Ashira Young, opens the door to a marvelous world of understanding and possibilities for the reader, listener, an ageless questioning mind, doubter and true believer. She gently offers the reader affirmation of the Divine love that is always present in us and around us without being “heavy handed” or attempting to convert the reader to a particular point of view. I loved the book; I highly recommend it!

A Tale Told with LoveA bucolic story about a child’s spiritual world, with charming illustrations to match.
But Ashira Young takes it a step further in her beautifully illustrated book “A Song For OliviaWalk with the animals – talk with the animals. Most everyone remembers that catchy song from the Dr. Doolittle movie. But Ashira Young takes it a step further in her beautifully illustrated book “A Song For Olivia.” On her farm, Olivia not only talks to all the dogs, cats and goats but to her guardian angel as well. Ms. Young graphically describes how God, in his infinite wisdom, reaches out through his angel and animals to make a profound impression on a little girl. And it’s certain to do the same for young readers too. But there’s more. Kids, for the most part, tend to be hateful toward others their age, but Olivia learns from her guardian angel to return that hate with love. That’s an important lesson, not lonely for youngsters but adults as well. “An Angel for Olivia” is written in easy-to-understand language and coupled with the illustrations, it certainly earns a five-star rating with me
Inspirational and sweet.Wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated, this story is both endearing and enlightening. No matter your spiritual background, if you believe in guardian angels, you will find yourself gaining insight through the eyes and adventures of this 5 year old girl, her furry friends and her guardian angel.
A stunningly beautiful little children’s story that’s written straight from the heartAshira Young’s Angel for Olivia will teach your children that none of us is ever really alone, even when we are facing such daunting challenges as the derision of other children. We all have a guardian angel to guide us. All we have to do is believe. Olivia is a darling 6-year old only child who lives on a farm. At an age when most children create imaginary characters, Olivia goes one step further – she believes with all her heart that she can talk to the animals on her family farm, including geese, ducks, rabbits and especially her five beloved dogs who follow her everywhere. At school, the kids make fun of Olivia, because in her innocence she shares with them her wondrous powers of communications with animals.
Saddened by what’s happening at school, Olivia discovers a guardian angel named Sofia who suddenly appears in order to help her overcome her sadness. Sofia teaches Olivia that love, courage and understanding are gifts that are within the grasp of this special child; all she has to do is believe in them “So when someone makes fun of you, just send them love in your thoughts and smile,” Sofia tells her. “They just don’t understand yet. But there are others who will be curious and would never make fun of you”
Along with gorgeous illustrations, Ashira O. Young’s simple yet powerful words bring to life a delightful tale of hope and love your children will enjoy.
A Beautiful Message for All Ages
As a mother of three, I am always looking for opportunities to open up theological discussions. This gem of a book is full of them. Some of the themes discussed in this book are caring for God’s creation, being a child of God, our interconnectedness, grace, identifying our gifts and using them to help others, appreciating difference, and learning to listen to one another (even our four-legged friends). A delight for children of all ages.
Must have book for any ageI have just read “An Angel for Olivia” and read it to my 4-year old granddaughter. I was riveted by the story of a 6 year-old girl who lives on a farm and has the ability to talk with animals. While on walk down to the river, she meets an angel who shares wisdom with her with language a young person can easily understand. This book is not a run-of-the-mill children’s book. It is captivating, intriguing, and enlightening. Its underlying message is that there is more to understand than just what our five senses tell us and that we all have the capacity to tap into the mysteries of life.
As an adult, I came away uplifted. My granddaughter sat spellbound as I read the book to her. The story and concepts are easily understood. The illustrations are also excellent. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be transported to a world of wonderment and possibility.
