This week, Life Training Online is reviewing Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, the fourth of fifty-two books in the 52 Personal Development Books in 52 Weeks series.
I believed that I understood all there was to know about the Law of Attraction. This book showed me just how little I did know.
I realized after reading this, that there are still major improvements that I can make with regards to my thoughts. And after working through the various exercises throughout the book, I painfully become aware that many were working against me.
An interesting thing also happened immediately after applying the knowledge from this book this week. By the middle of this week my Adsense revenues alone for this blog jumped to $40+ dollars/day (this is not including affiliate income). Coincidence? Possibly, but I really believe it had to do with my focus. I’m excited to see what happens in the near future as I regularly work on this.
If you do decide to read this book, I want to warn you that it can’t be devoured in one sitting like a #3 Special at McDonald’s. Instead, make sure it’s read piece-meal, allowing plenty of time in between for proper digestion and incubation — you’ll get a lot more out of it this way.
It’s also important not to get caught up in the terminology used in the book. Just apply it to your own set of beliefs and circumstances. I happen to be a Christian and find that the teachings and terminology that are presented in this book easily translate to my own beliefs. What they call Source, I call God; what they refer to as Source Energy I call the Light of Christ. Since the principles are universal, they’ll work for all people — no matter what race, creed or religion you might belong to.
So that’s it for this week’s review. Next week I’ll be dusting off the covers of a book that I haven’t read since I was in college: Stephen Covey’s classic, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It’s a great read and I’m excited to revisit it again…stay tuned!
