About The Author:
Nick Olsen began his spiritual journey, seeking answers to the questions he had about his life, more than 14 years ago, shortly after his father passed away. He found that through meditation, he could find the peace, harmony, calmness, and answers he had been longing to achieve. Meditation gave him the focus and direction he was looking for in his life! Three years ago, the metaphysical or “The Universe” Nick, and “The Physical” Nick intersected into his present form of expression. “The Inspirations of the Universe” became a reality on the premise of bringing words of Hope, Encouragement, Unconditional Love, and Understanding to all. Nick hopes that the thoughts in this book help address your everyday struggles, challenges, and lead to answers to your life questions.
These messages I’ve written reflect both the best and worst experiences we all face in life. Most importantly, the poems are my way of offering inspiration, hope, and encouragement to every person in the world we share. The poems are here to help us grow individually. And to help us grow together, in a global community of Spirit.
I hope you’ll read these poems with earnest reflection and consider how they apply to your past and present life.
To foster your engagement with the poems, I’ve included a blank page adjacent to each one for you to take notes, jot down personal inspiration, and thoughts.
My wish is that you’ll find reading and learning from this collection as powerful an experience as I did in its creation.
Namaste, Nick Olsen

Spiritual journey, I’d like to thank Nick for sharing his most intimate thoughts with the reader.

I encourage readers to use the reflection page to jot your reactions and feelings from reading the poems. This book is an exceptional tool to help you reach maximum spiritual potential.
Inspirational and positive collection of poetry! This book includes a collection of poetry that provides the reader an opportunity to reflect on life’s experiences. In general, I found the poems to be inspirational, relatable, and thought-provoking. The first time I read the book, I read nearly all of the poems, but over time, I tend to look over a couple each read, and really think through how those specific poems apply to my life and affect me. The poems are thoughtful and provide a good opportunity for introspection. Reading poetry in general and the ones in this book remind me of the quote, “What is reading but silent conversation.” The book is also well organized. On the opposite page of each poem there is an area designated for the reader to reflect on their thoughts/emotions that are roused from the poetry. I really like this idea and it makes an inspirational book of poetry even more functional.
