An experiential documentation of how to transcend the ordinary into extraordinary outcomes in alignment with our desires, Life Is Abracadabra is about the magical synchronicities that took its author from Asia to Europe to Africa to South America to North & Central America to live out her destiny. When we require or desire something at any given moment then voilà it is delivered by the Universe with exact precision, just what we needed, without conceivable possibility of it so happening through logical reasoning or planning. That is real magic! There are 21 magical stories in this book written chronologically and geographically, as they occurred in her life.
Have you ever experienced real magic? Have you ever been cornered into a life-threatening situation with no conceivable possibility of getting out, only to magically escape the next instant just so you can experience yourself as invincible, indomitable, unsinkable, unstoppable? Have you ever received direct guidance from the Universe, so precise and in such layman’s terms that it takes your own breath away?
It is not always about thinking positive but how to navigate any circumstance life hurls at us magically emerging victorious. And even if life is not always the rosy picture many visionaries paint these days, it is possible to find ourselves in grave danger then come out of it unscratched, just by not thinking straight. The book also talks about developing authentic confidence and awareness, cultivating a deep trust in life despite the dice thrown at us.

BAISAKHI SAHA is an award-winning international speaker, writer, and globetrotter. From being a computing graduate to a marketing executive to a German interpreter, English teacher, Spanish translator to now an author and performer, mysterious coincidences have led her from one place to another, contriving her to live her destiny, to leave a legacy.
She was born in Kolkata but grew up in different states of India, so it felt as if she was always in a new country. Her childhood was, thus, a preparation for what was to come in adulthood. She is multilingual and can speak six languages.
“I think people are afraid to dream because they don’t want to be disappointed,” she told the Belgian guy…
But what if there was a way to co-create our dreams with the universe? And what if the universe responded to us in a tangible way? At the tender age of seventeen, Baisakhi left her home to pursue higher studies abroad. Since then, she has dwelled in different continents—from Asia to Europe to Africa to South America to North & Central America—studying life through myriad mirrors of reality. She has lived with local families—eating their food, adopting their lifestyles, contributing to their economy, negotiating extreme realities and belief systems, and navigating diverse traditions and religions for several years to answer life’s most pertinent questions. Coming from a conservative family in India, she had to overcome all limitations to fly!
This book narrates the magical adventures and marvelous encounters of an ordinary girl who believes in extraordinary possibilities, as she traverses the globe to fulfil her destiny. Life Is Abracadabra is peppered with true anecdotes of hope and faith, of meaningful coincidences and miracles that will make you perceive life from an altogether new dimension. It is about noticing the signs and synchronicities strewn on our paths and acting on them. Because when we do, life will be on our side too.
