    In the context of Law of Attraction, taking action is a controversial topic. It started with The Secret, which got criticized for not discussing the importance of taking action in manifesting your dreams. The criticisms focused on the idea that you can’t simply think your way to a dream life. You have to do something about it. To give a popular example, you can’t lie on your couch all day visualizing wealth and abundance and expect it to come to you. These criticisms furthered the discussion on Law of Attraction. The general agreement was that you have to take action. But then the topic was further complicated by trying to understand what kind of action to take. Should you hussle and work hard 20 hours a day to make money? Should you only take inspired action? And if you take inspired action, how do you know what inspired looks like? Should you push through whatever obstacles come your way? These are legitimate questions, which many experts are trying to answer. Personally, like many things in life, I don’t think there is one right answer. I think there are many answers and many different types of actions you can take that will lead you to the same manifestation. Simple observation will confirm this. There are people who hussle and make big money and there are people who make a fortune through passive income. There are people who “bump” into their future spouse and there are people who are actively engaged in 20 dating websites before finding their future spouse. There are people who work out 7 days a week and are healthy and strong and there are people who are food burning machines, metabolizing everything quickly, while living a sedentary lifestyle. In other words, there is no one right way to achieve your dreams. So, of course there’s confusion. And this confusion is amplified by our own paranoid thoughts. Are we taking the right steps? Am I really listening to my intuition or not? When am I pushing against, too much? Did I take this action step correctly? In other words we can drive ourselves crazy. And the irony of ironies is that we’re actually sabotaging our chances of manifestation by thinking and feeling the opposite of what we want, through this paranoia. So what are we to do? How do we navigate this taking action stuff? Well I kind of already gave away the answer. Taking action is paltry compared to our mindset while taking the action. For example, let’s say you want to find your future spouse. You visualize and think positively and then decide to “take action” (by the way visualizing and thinking positively are action steps as well). You join a dating website. And then immediately your mind starts racing. Did I join the right website? Is my profile okay? Should I be doing more? Should I be meeting people in person instead? Suddenly your desired manifestation has been replaced with all this other stuff. And suddenly your mind is not in the right place. You are too focused on whether you’re “doing it right” and not on actually having fun and meeting people. More so, you’ve abandoned one of the most important mindsets when manifesting. The knowing that the universe has already answered your request. Incessantly questioning your action steps sends a message to the universe that you don’t trust it. That the end result is not guaranteed.  And so you sabotage your efforts. The fallacy lies in the belief that there is one right path to get to where you want to go. There isn’t one right path. There are many. Some take longer and some take shorter. But to take it a step further, the reason some take longer has nothing to do with the steps you take. It has to do with your mindset while taking the steps. As Abraham Hicks says, you’re not “allowing” the manifestation to flow into your experience. Are you grasping the main point here? The steps you take are unimportant. They will ALL lead to the same desired result, as long as you maintain the right mindset. Which, again, is the KNOWING that what you’ve asked for has already been answered and WILL show up in your physical experience. Or as I like to say “It all works out in the end”. Taking action is not about figuring out the exact steps to take to get to your desired result. You shut down opportunities for the manifestation to reach you in other, better, ways. You’re also so tied to taking those exact steps that your mindset again slips off the end result and becomes paranoid about each step of the process. Instead, taking action is about giving the universe the opportunity to manifest your desires in physical form. You can’t possibly know the best or easiest path to get there. Nor can you know the right people and circumstances necessary for you to get there. The universe does, by lining up those people and circumstances with your intention. You just need to show up (consistently and in the direction of where you want to go) and then let the universe do its thing, all the while maintaining the right mindset that it all works out in the end. Further, you need to understand that the intention of taking action is to experience the process. That’s our whole point here on earth. To allow our greater parts to shine in all its glory. If that’s a confusing statement, refer to this article to understand what’s meant by the greater part of us and then recognize that who-we-really-are seeks to experience itself, not just conceptually know itself. In the same vain, the intention of taking action is to also experience the process of manifestation. To turn the CONCEPT of whatever you desire, to the EXPERIENCE of manifesting it. Because the experience is so much more delicious than the concept. The whole point of this blog post is to shift your mindset on taking action. Stop worrying about whether you’re doing it right and know that you are. Stop worrying about the one right path and know that all paths will get you there. Stop worrying about whether you will manifest your desires and start knowing that your desire has already been answered. Simply do the best you can with what you have, moving in the direction of what you desire and most importantly have fun along the way!

    I’m going to start this blog with a confession.   I don’t understand everything about law of attraction. I believe that in order for me to fully grasp this law of the universe, I have to delve deeper inside myself than I have gone before.    Let me explain. You’re practising this LOA stuff and you’re monitoring your thoughts and feelings and everything in your life seems to go swimmingly, and then suddenly you hit an unexpected bump in the road.   That bump in the road means different things to different people. For some it could be as big as losing your job and to others it could be as little as getting in a minor fender bender.   The kind of bump doesn’t matter. In fact, the size of the bump doesn’t matter either because that’s a relative term. To a billionaire a $10K car accident is meaningless, while it could mean the world to someone who’s barely getting by.   Lots of times the bump doesn’t even exist. It’s a fabric of our imagination that comes from the potential outcome of an experience. For example, freaking out after being screened for cancer. You can literally drive yourself crazy with just this one scenario.   Now I’m not minimizing the potential brevity of that experience or any other. Believe me I’ve freaked out plenty in my life.   My point though, is that there seem to be periods in our lives that no matter what we think and how well we feel, something unexpected comes up that we judge as “bad”.   The bigger question is how do we make sense of these bumps, what is the “right” way to deal with them and how “should” we behave when they do happen?   Making sense of it is where I get confused. I mean the law of attraction material is quite straight forward. Think good thoughts, feel good feelings and good will come.   But then why do these bumps happen?   The answers are quite diverse. Including; these bumps are part of the whole process and ultimately it will yield what you want; these bumps are put there to teach you a lesson; the only way to grow is through discomfort and calamities; you subconsciously attracted it in your life; you’re doing law of attraction wrong; these bumps are inevitable; the bump was created through the collective conscious and you got caught up in it; it’s a source of contrast, prompting you to ask for something new in your life; and more.     With so many answers, who knows what the right one is? And this comes back to my confession. I really don’t know the right answer. They all make at least a little bit of sense to me.   But maybe it’s not important to know why the bump happened. I mean, does knowing why solve anything (other than perhaps avoiding them in the future, if that’s even possible or ultimately desirable)?   Maybe it’s more important to accept that it happened (you can’t argue with that) and that you somehow attracted it in your life (assuming you believe in law of attraction, which I do).   In other words it’s most productive to own the experience. That’s the only way we can move on from it.   And, just as important, we need to determine whether it’s fair to judge the experience at all. If you think about it, we label every experience in our lives. That’s good. This is bad. And I’m indifferent to the other.   But like the billionaire with the $10K accident, it’s all relative. Or in other words, an experience in and of itself has no value, other than the one we assign to it. And we only assign a value to it based on how we feel it’s going to impact our lives moving forward.   If we feel the impact is minimal we will be indifferent. If we feel the impact will be negative we’ll judge it as “bad”. If we feel the impact will be positive, we’ll judge it as “good”. It really is as simple as that.   The key words are we feel. What’s happening is we’re looking at something outside ourselves to dictate how we feel. And we do that all the time.   Once I have the relationship, I will feel happy. Once I have the money, I will feel joyful. Once I have the job I will be at peace.   If unexpected expenses come my way, I’ll feel scared. If my partner dumps me, I’ll feel sad. If my boss yells at me, I’ll be angry.   In other words, we freak out because we believe the bump will ultimately lead to a bad outcome, making us feel bad.   The irony is we’re already feeling bad by freaking out. Or to put it another way, our minds are making us feel bad before the potential outcome even happens.   Why? Because how we feel has nothing do with the outside world. It’s the great illusion!   Our feelings are simply a product of our thoughts and beliefs. Meaning it’s an internal trigger based on how we view the world.   Now don’t get me wrong, these triggers have a real impact. If you grew up with the belief that money is scarce and hard to come by, then any experience that threatens your financial wellbeing will cause within you a strong reaction.   But again, it’s not the experience that’s making you feel bad, it’s the perceived risk to your financial well-being that is making you feel bad.   Of course this may sound like semantics, but understanding the difference is crucial to your personal development.   The understanding that your thoughts and beliefs (not the external event) causes you to freak out puts you in the driver’s seat, because you have the power to change your thoughts and beliefs.   And there are many methods out there to help you do that. But the first step is accepting this undeniable truth. Only then can you move forward.   The problem is, for a lot of people we’re not quite sure what will freak us out in the future because our triggers are buried deep in our subconscious. Meaning we can only work on changing these triggers, once we consciously experience and acknowledge them.   So this comes back to the original point of this blog. What do you do the next time you freak out?   Well five things are necessary to help you through it:   At the time you’re freaking out, remember that some deeply held belief triggered this reaction and that the power to change it comes from within. Or in other words, it’s much more powerful to change yourself than the external event or even the outcome of the external event.   Honor how you feel. If you’re freaking out, then accept and honor the fact that you’re freaking out. If you deny that you’re freaking out you’re lying to yourself. If you try to supress this feeling you won’t get very far. Take 2 minutes, find a place by yourself, and allow all of those scary feelings to be felt fully. Let it embody you and fully accept it for what it is. In fact, stare into the face of this fear. I know it’s painful and scary to do that, but oftentimes you’ll find that when you stare at it long enough you’ll find nothing there. In other words, the feeling will naturally dissipate into the ether. Do this step as often as possible.   If the feelings don’t go away on their own, then let the feeling go. Literally visualize yourself placing the feeling in a basket or in a hot air balloon or some sort of item and allow it to float away or place it in the river and let the tide carry it away. Or find another way to let the feeling go. Take a deep breath and consciously release the feelings. And if there is more underneath it then let them go too. Do it as many times as you can until you feel lighter and calmer.   When you’re feeling calmer (and only when you’re feeling calmer) examine the trigger behind it. There is some sort of belief or thought pattern that caused you to freak out and you need identify what it is and why it’s possibly there. To help you it usually falls in the following categories. Please note that this was taken from the book Code to Joy and identified as The Seven Self-Limiting Beliefs:   You don’t feel safe You don’t feel worthy You feel powerless You do not feel lovabe You don’t trust anyone You are bad You are alone   (George Pratt, 2012) The reason you have to feel calmer prior to step four is because you won’t be able to properly examine your triggers in a heightened state of freaking out. Your mindset is just not in the optimal state.   To round out the process, once you examine your triggers, than you have to do the much deeper work of changing your thoughts and beliefs. Again there are many resources out there to help you. You can find them with a little bit of effort. And once you do, commit to finding the best resource out there (for you) that you feel will make the biggest difference.   Okay, so that’s it for this post. Now it’s your turn. What are your thoughts on it? Do you have further advice and/or what resources would you recommend to help others with their limiting thoughts and beliefs.   Works Cited George Pratt, P. L. (2012).

    8 Mistakes Successful People Don't Make – or Don’t Repeat Do you keep making the same mistakes? If you do, you might find that you make little progress in your life. There is a huge opportunity to learn from your mistakes. Those that successfully learn from their mistakes wind up being highly successful. Those that repeat them struggle. Imagine how your life would be different if you never made the same mistake twice.Learn from your mistakes and vow to never repeat them:1.Successful people avoid making excuses. Excuses are preparations for failure. An excuse is a justification to fail or quit. No one will resolve your challenges for you. Take responsibility and do the best you can.2.Fail to have an objective. Life without goals is a random experience. Unfortunately, without a direction, your life will tend to get worse rather than better. Have a goal or expect to be disappointed. What are your goals right now? Do you have them written down? What do you think you’ll accomplish over the next six months if you don’t have any goals?Create 3-5 goals that you can accomplish over the next six months.3.Fail to have a plan. If you have a goal, you must have a plan for achieving it. One isn’t much good without the other. Avoid hoping and wishing your goals will come true on their own. Take the bull by the horns.4.Successful people don’t repeat their mistakes. Most of us make the same mistakes repeatedly. Whether it’s making a poor choice in a mate, overspending, or trying to gain new customers through ineffective means, people are creatures of habit. Make habits of your effective behaviors, rather than your ineffective behaviors.5.Expect others to change. Is it easy to change your own attitudes, beliefs, or behaviors? And you want to change! Consider how hard it would be to change someone else. And they don’t want to change! You can’t change others.6.Choosing comfort over progress. Perhaps the largest mistake of those who struggle in life is the tendency to place short-term comfort over long-term advantages. This is a very ineffective way to deal with life. This is the friend that asks to sleep on your couch for a few days and is still there after three months.7.Not playing to their strengths. The most successful people take full advantage of their strengths at every opportunity. While it’s admirable to work on your weaknesses, most successful people choose to avoid them. You can’t be good at everything. Use your talents and strengths as much as possible.8.Ignoring the little things. It’s the little things that will derail your efforts. It’s easy to ignore the seemingly mundane details, but those details can make all the difference in the end.Make use of your mistakes. Learn from them and decide to avoid them in the future. Life is easy if you don’t repeat your errors.What are the major mistakes you’ve made repeatedly? Why do you think you repeat them? Do you lack awareness of your mistakes?Examine the challenges in your life and ask yourself why they occurred. What could you have done differently to avoid those challenges? It’s worthwhile to spend some time each week reviewing the past week. Determine your mistakes and ensure that you don’t repeat them. Watch how quickly your life changes!

Excuses are preparations for failure. An excuse is a justification to fail or quit. No one will resolve your challenges for you. Take responsibility and do the best you can.2.Fail to have an objective. Life without goals is a random experience. Unfortunately, without a direction, your life will tend to get worse rather than better. Have a goal or expect to be disappointed. What are your goals right now? Do you have them written down? What do you think you’ll accomplish over the next six months if you don’t have any goals?Create 3-5 goals that you can accomplish over the next six months.3.Fail to have a plan. If you have a goal, you must have a plan for achieving it. One isn’t much good without the other. Avoid hoping and wishing your goals will come true on their own. Take the bull by the horns.4.Successful people don’t repeat their mistakes. Most of us make the same mistakes repeatedly. Whether it’s making a poor choice in a mate, overspending, or trying to gain new customers through ineffective means, people are creatures of habit. Make habits of your effective behaviors, rather than your ineffective behaviors.5.Expect others to change. Is it easy to change your own attitudes, beliefs, or behaviors? And you want to change! Consider how hard it would be to change someone else. And they don’t want to change! You can’t change others.6.Choosing comfort over progress. Perhaps the largest mistake of those who struggle in life is the tendency to place short-term comfort over long-term advantages. This is a very ineffective way to deal with life. This is the friend that asks to sleep on your couch for a few days and is still there after three months.7.Not playing to their strengths. The most successful people take full advantage of their strengths at every opportunity. While it’s admirable to work on your weaknesses, most successful people choose to avoid them. You can’t be good at everything. Use your talents and strengths as much as possible.8.Ignoring the little things. It’s the little things that will derail your efforts. It’s easy to ignore the seemingly mundane details, but those details can make all the difference in the end.Make use of your mistakes. Learn from them and decide to avoid them in the future. Life is easy if you don’t repeat your errors.What are the major mistakes you’ve made repeatedly? Why do you think you repeat them? Do you lack awareness of your mistakes?Examine the challenges in your life and ask yourself why they occurred. What could you have done differently to avoid those challenges? It’s worthwhile to spend some time each week reviewing the past week. Determine your mistakes and ensure that you don’t repeat them. Watch how quickly your life changes!

    Are you living a life of your design or by default? A life of design enables you to have true time and financial freedom. A life of default will result in stress, health problems, loss of quality time with family/friends and financial crisis. Today in our society, we tend to live a settled and “go with the flow” life. We must make changes to secure and position ourselves to prosper in life. Change makes us flexible. Being stubborn and resistant to new things will make a normally stressing situation even more so. Change makes us smarter. If things never change, you’d never learn anything new. Every time we learn a new life skill, it makes us much smarter than we were in the past. Change also reminds us that anything is possible. It’s easy to think that anything that’s stuck will always be that way. But, when you see things change whether it’s in your own life or someone else’s, its encouragement to know nothing stays the same forever.

    Do a search for Abraham Hicks in YouTube and you'll find over 1M hits. Now not all of them are Abraham talks, but thousands of them are.   As a result, it's hard to wade through all the videos and find the gems that will appeal to you. And that's why I put together this list of (definitely not exhaustive) videos, which shift your vibration, make you see things in a new light, inspire you and more.    So happy viewing and please leave a comment at the bottom if you have any Abraham videos you'd like to add.     Offer: Click here if you're interested in a 2 hour Abraham Hicks audio on The Art of Allowing   Video 1:   Abraham Hicks - Things you must do everyday     Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 8:37 and in it Abraham focuses on 4 things you must do every day to align with who-you-really-are. Consider this video kind of like a list of habits that someone who wants to tap into the Law of Attraction needs to do.   These “must do’s” are simple in practice, but will take some time. According to Abraham though, taking the time do align with your source is the most important pre-condition to achieving all of your life’s desires.   Video 2:   Abraham Hicks: How easy it's to get a lot of money, just apply the simple rule   Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 11:11 and the topic focuses on how to get the “big” money in your life. “Big” is in quotes because Abraham highlights the issue with classifying money as “big” or “not big”. The issue being that the very classification of “big” implicitly equates to something that is harder to attain.   When you consider something harder to attain, then you’re adding resistance to the coming of that desire. Abraham then proceeds to offer a formula to remedy these thoughts and help you get in the right vibrational state to manifest whatever it is you desire.   Video 3:   Abraham Hicks - The easiest way to start positive momentum     Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 14:28 and focuses on the easiest way to start down the path of positive momentum, even when nothing seems to be going right in your life. Abraham’s advice is to go general and what that means is explained in the video, including a detailed rampage of general positive momentum. And these examples can be applied by everyone.    Abraham also highlights that positive momentum is just that; momentum that you can get swept up in for any subject you can imagine. And that’s because law of attraction also attracts like thoughts to you. So if you’re focusing on something that makes you feel good, for example, then more feel good thoughts will come to you. And when you’re in this mode the amount of resistance you feel goes down significantly.   Further, once this positive momentum becomes a habit, then you will attract others in the same vibrational field as you.     Video 4: Abraham Hicks ~ Let go and Dream Big   Here's the YouTube Channel.   In this video, Abraham identifies a common issue that most people have when it comes to their desires, and that’s namely the issue that our desires have yet to manifest in our physical reality.   And because we place our feeling good on the condition of manifesting that desire, we choose not to pay attention to our desires because we find it painful to think about, because it’s not yet here.   In other words, we hold ourselves in resistance to the allowing of our own manifestations by ignoring our desires.   But this doesn’t have to be the case. We can decide to feel good regardless of whether we have achieved our desire or not. And that’s because we’ll never run out of our desires.   We’ll never stop wanting more, so placing your happiness on the achievement of our desires will result in us never feeling good.   An alternative is to feel good without the manifestation. In fact you can feel good about the desire by focusing your attention on how good it will feel once you have it. You just have to activate that positive vibration within you.     Offer: Click here if you're interested in a 2 hour Abraham Hicks audio on The Art of Allowing   Video 5:    Abraham-Hicks/ Change vibration instantly     Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 14:37 and focuses on techniques you can use to deactivate a limiting belief (which is really a very active vibration) and eventually replace it with more aligned beliefs.   Some suggestions include not talking about your beliefs (or at least talking about it less than before) and if you find yourself in a conversation with someone who brings that belief up, knowing how to respond to lessen the active part of it.   Abraham also identifies how to treat yourself when you do find yourself thinking or talking about that limited belief, specifically focusing on not judging yourself for thinking it in the first place.     The whole objective is to bring some awareness into how you feel, what to say and how to behave, with the intention of shifting your focus from unwanted things to wanted things.   Abraham then takes the concept to the next level, highlighting what will naturally happen to you when you deactivate your limiting beliefs. What’s said in this part of the talk is profound and helps you understand deliberate creation in a new way.   Video 6:   Abraham Hicks: Heal yourself, start regenerating your body cells, become young and strong again     Here's the YouTube Channel.    This video is 10:40 and focuses on how to heal your physical body. Abraham goes into some detail about the cells in our body and how they are regenerated and also what the cells represent in terms of our connections with source.   When left to their own devices, our cells know how to automatically fix any imbalances in our body and bring our body’s back to perfect health.   What affects our cells though is the mind and what we think and how we feel. In other words we are the gatekeepers of how our body feels by either allowing our natural well being to flow or not.   Finally, Abraham offers advice about how to allow when you’re not feeling well.   Video 7:   Abraham-Hicks~ How to be unconditionally HAPPY!     Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 15:27 and focuses on being happy no matter what's going on in your life.   This was touched upon in another video, but this one really gets at the heart of it. Essentially, we are all looking for the condition of the manifestation to occur before allowing ourselves to feel good.   The issue is the desires that precede the manifestations are loaded with our past beliefs and conditionings and therefore automatically introduce resistance into the equation.   To explain this in some more detail, a desire is born out of contrast. Meaning an unwanted experience causes us to desire something we don’t have in our lives (usually the opposite of the unwanted experience). So if you can’t pay your next bill for example, then the desire for more money comes about.   However, the wanting of money, to continue the example, is loaded with the bad feelings that comes from not paying the bill and keeps you focused on the fact that you don’t have the money, making you feel worse.   And now you’ve created the condition of having money before feeling good. “My bad feeling associated with not paying the bill will go away once I have the money.”   Unfortunately, you’re stuck in the vibration of “not having enough money” meaning you’ll continue to attract the like vibration of “not having enough money”.   Instead you need to do the opposite. You need to feel good first and then the manifestation will come. You become happy by gaining momentum and aligning with who-you-really are. And then the ideas start to flow, the inspirations start coming and the coincidences start to show up.   The key takeaway is to feel good no matter what.     Offer: Click here if you're interested in a 2 hour Abraham Hicks audio on The Art of Allowing   Video 8:   Abraham-Hicks | Signs MANIFESTATION is NEAR!     Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 14:25 and at the beginning focuses on when to use certain tools such as meditation and visualization during the manifestation process.   More specifically, meditation is to be used to kind of reset your vibrational patterns allowing for more positive vibrations to flow through your experience, whereas visualization is better when you’re in a positive state and the actual process of visualization adds to the already good feeling.   Abraham then expands on the concept by highlighting signs that manifestation is near. The first thing you need to recognize and accept is that the manifestation has already occurred at a vibrational level.   Then ideas start to flow. You’re becoming clearer about the next steps to take. You start feeling good about that desire, even though it hasn’t shown up in your physical reality. You also have positive expectation about the manifestation.   This though can only work as long as you’re not offering resistance to it. Meaning not being discouraged by the absence of it or upset or anxious. In other words, like Abraham’s message in the other videos, you have to unconditionally feel good first.   Abraham also reinforces that you don’t need to try so hard to get the manifestation. Allow it to come into your experience. Allow the ideas and thoughts to come to you instead of trying to figure it out.   Video 9:  Abraham Hicks - Are There Spiritual Forces With Us   Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 12:30 and the first 7 minutes focuses on a topic completely unrelated from the title of the video.   The topic focuses on how to feel about the contrast. For those unfamiliar with the teachings of Abraham, contrast is the first step in the formation of a desire.   When you experience something you don’t want, a desire associated with what you do want is born. That experience is called contrast.   Oftentimes we feel bad when we experience contrast and the reason is because we condemn ourselves for feeling bad.   Abraham clarifies that contrast is a necessary step of the manifestation process that will always be there, whether you want it to or not. It’s the genesis of expansion and no matter how hard you try, it will always be there.   Therefore, it makes more sense to recognize it as a necessary step in the process and more importantly the start of a delicious new manifestation. The main message, therefore is when you experience contrast in the future, make sure to go easy on yourself and recognize it for the value contained within it.   The second part of the video answers the question asked in the title. The short answer is yes, in fact we ourselves are spiritual forces, or in other words we’re much more than our physical selves. We are non-physical beings in a physical body.   Video 10: Abraham Hicks ~ Creating Self Worth     Here's the YouTube Channel.   This video is 14:43 and focuses specifically on how to create self-worth.   The video begins by Abraham defining fear, which is explained as having a desire while at the same time holding a belief that contradicts the desire. She likens it to sticking a pencil in a well-functioning fan.   She then expands this concept to all negative emotions including lack of self-worth.   Whenever your thoughts are negative, they are in contradiction to who-you-really-are, which is an extension of source energy (or God, or pure positive energy or whatever you call it). And that’s why you feel bad. Because you are in contradiction of your true essence.   The irony, based on this understanding, is that you don’t have to find self-worth, or happiness, or joy, or loving feelings or anything. You already are all of those things. You simply have to remove the negative thoughts and self-worth, love, happiness and joy will naturally arise within you.   To better understand this, Abraham uses the example of holding a cork under water. You holding the cork under water is equivalent to your negative thoughts and you letting go of the cork and letting it naturally rise to the surface is you letting go of your negative thoughts.   Now Abraham stresses that negative feelings are not a bad thing. It’s an important indication of your disconnection with who-you-really-are. In other words you have a guidance system (your emotions) that helps you understand how close or far away you are from the real you.     Offer: Click here if you're interested in a 2 hour Abraham Hicks audio on The Art of Allowing   So there you have it. 10 videos that will you see the world in a new way and understand why you do the thins you do and how to feel good no matter what.

    I know this title is loaded. I’m actually suggesting that if you read these books, your life will change, which is a pretty bold statement.   But I’m confident they will. Why? Because they changed my life. In case you have no idea who I am, my name is Dave and I’m the owner of this site, which is a free online spiritual social network.   You see I’ve been on a serious spiritual journey for years now and I’ve read an incredible amount of books on the topic, and while I believe that you can take something away from every book, some are so profound and offer such a shocking perspective on life and who we really are, that you can literally finish that book a different person than when you started.   And if you read a combination of all these books, the impact will be even greater because you’re gathering important input from each of them and combining them to come up with your own healthy model of the world.   Bonus: Click Here for a PDF Version of this blog post! Plus new members receive a free copy of our eBook: 9 Truths That Will Turn Your World Upside Down    Anyways, enough of me rambling on, let’s get to the 8 spiritual books that will change your life:   Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1     Author: Neale Donald Walsch   Published: 1996   The first book in a series of three, this incredible conversation between Neale and God will provide you with a new perspective on how life really works.   Touching on such subjects as Law of Attraction, who you really are, and your purpose, this book is like the Matrix of books.   Once you take the red pill you can never go back, which in this case is preferable because you begin to understand that the World is much friendlier and you are much more powerful than you ever imagined!    2. Ask and It Is Given   Authors: Esther and Jerry Hicks   Published: 2010   Based on the teachings of Abraham, a collection of non-physical entities explaining how life really works through Esther Hicks, this book will open your eyes to the universal laws governing our world and techniques that you can employ to start creating the life of your dreams.   Regardless, if you believe the basic premise of Abraham or not, the impact of this book really comes down to how much the concepts identified resonate with you.   And based on my experience with Abraham teachings and hundreds of thousands of others, it resonates quite strongly and with an open-mind will shift your view of the world.   Though there are several incredible books written by Esther and Jerry, I believe this one will have the greatest impact.    3. The Power of Intention   Author: Dr. Wayne Dyer   Published: 2005   I knew I was reading something magnificent when early on in the book, I read the following quote:   “A tiny acorn with no apparent power to think or make plans for its future contains intention from the invisible field. If you cut the acorn open, you won’t see a giant oak tree, but you know it’s there.”   - The Power of Intention   The late Wayne Dyer published, more than 40 books (21 of them bestsellers) and this one, in my opinion is the best one.   It also departures from Wayne’s earlier works because he focuses on co-creating the life of your dreams by working with the energies of intention and the universe, as opposed to working hard on your own to succeed.   This book has so many insights, you’ll want to read it twice and then probably want to read his other books. That’s what happened to me.   This book is also full of practical advice, helping you understand what the faces of intentions look like, obstacles to connecting with these energies and how to apply it in certain situations in your life.   Definitely worth a read!   Bonus: Click Here for a PDF Version of this blog post! Plus new members receive a free copy of our eBook: 9 Truths That Will Turn Your World Upside Down     4. The Power of Now   Author: Eckhart Tolle   Published: 1999   Without actually using the term, Eckhart identifies the power of mindfulness like no one else.   This book is both esoteric and practical at the same time and when you actually take the time to understand what he’s saying you begin to sense the importance of this very theoretically simple concept.   In the book Tolle draws on both the teachings of Jesus and Buddha, but not at all from a religious perspective. He takes their words and interprets them from a spiritual perspective.   While it can be complex at times, paying attention to the implications of living in the moment will help you take a look at yourself and understand where you may be tripping yourself up in terms of living the life of your dreams.   This is definitely an incredible book that I believe will stand the test of time.    5. Life on Earth: Understanding Who We Are, How We Got Here, and What May Lie Ahead   Author: Mike Dooley   Published: 2016   Relatively new and not as well-known as the other books on this list, this one is similar to Conversations with God but almost seems to be written as a complementary guide to Conversations.   This book is really a collection of questions and answers gathered throughout Mike’s life.   The strange part is it was him doing both the asking and answering.   Kind of in the spirit of Abraham Hicks, Mike seems to have tapped into his higher self for the answers and in the same spirit of Abraham, it’s not a question whether you believe it or not, but rather how well the answers resonate with you.   And let me tell you, they resonated with me. He also touches on subjects such as Law of Attraction, but also focuses on concepts such as suffering and “accidents” and also provides a bunch of practical techniques you can use to create your ideal life.   Definitely a new book that I believe will gain popularity as time goes on.   6. The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself   Author: Michael Singer   Published 2007   This book blew me away! Plain and simple.   Written by Michael Singer, a man who has lived an extraordinary life, his ability to help you discover who-you-really-are and how to connect with that power within is amazing. And with such simplicity.   He also takes complicated subjects and breaks them down into simple, easy to understand concepts that anyone can apply.   The funny thing is I thought I had a strong grasp of spiritual concepts before I touched this book and then realized that I didn’t and that this book elevated my spiritual experience to deeper level.   If there is one book on this list, that will have a large impact, quickly, this is it.   7. Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender     Author: David R. Hawkins   Published: 2013   Closer to the beginning of my spiritual journey, I glossed over the concept of letting go/surrendering/releasing, probably because I had to deal with a whole bunch of other issues first, but as my journey continued, I began to see the importance of letting go.   What’s more interesting is that books I previously mentioned discussed the concept but it never resonated with me.   You can’t miss the concept of letting go with this book, because that’s the whole point of this book. Moreover, through this book you begin to understand the importance and power of letting something go.   It is in fact so powerful, that this mere act alone can change your life.   And while on the surface it may seem like a simple thing to do, be warned that the mere act of letting go will bring up a whole host of uncomfortable issues, but trust me when I say you’ll be a different person on the other side.   8. The Brain That Changes Itself   Author: Norman Doidge Published: 2007   Okay, so I have to confess something. This isn’t a spiritual book. In fact it’s based on science, but I believe the concept behind it is so important and will have such reaching implications on how you view life, I couldn’t leave it out.   If you’re wondering what it’s about, the title says it all.   Science recently confirmed that our brains are malleable. Termed neuroplasticity, our brains can literally re-wire itself with some practice, no matter how old you are.   And the implications are extremely exciting, because it confirms that you’re never too old to change, your mind or your life. So step away from the spiritual books for a little and read this one. You won’t be sorry.   So there you have it. 8 books that will change your life.   Of course there are others. Hundreds of others that will impact your life and I’m quite sure that as I continue down my journey more will be added to me list, but in the meantime, these 8 books will significantly move you down your path.     Bonus: Click Here for a PDF Version of this blog post!

    I know this title is loaded. I’m actually suggesting that if you read these books, your life will change, which is a pretty bold statement.   But I’m confident they will. Why? Because they changed my life. In case you have no idea who I am, my name is Dave and I’m the owner of this site, which is a free online spiritual social network.   You see I’ve been on a serious spiritual journey for years now and I’ve read an incredible amount of books on the topic, and while I believe that you can take something away from every book, some are so profound and offer such a shocking perspective on life and who we really are, that you can literally finish that book a different person than when you started.   And if you read a combination of all these books, the impact will be even greater because you’re gathering important input from each of them and combining them to come up with your own healthy model of the world.   Bonus: Click Here for a PDF Version of this blog post! Plus new members receive a free copy of our eBook: 9 Truths That Will Turn Your World Upside Down    Anyways, enough of me rambling on, let’s get to the 8 spiritual books that will change your life:   Conversations with God: An Uncommon Dialogue, Book 1     Author: Neale Donald Walsch   Published: 1996   The first book in a series of three, this incredible conversation between Neale and God will provide you with a new perspective on how life really works.   Touching on such subjects as Law of Attraction, who you really are, and your purpose, this book is like the Matrix of books.   Once you take the red pill you can never go back, which in this case is preferable because you begin to understand that the World is much friendlier and you are much more powerful than you ever imagined!    2. Ask and It Is Given   Authors: Esther and Jerry Hicks   Published: 2010   Based on the teachings of Abraham, a collection of non-physical entities explaining how life really works through Esther Hicks, this book will open your eyes to the universal laws governing our world and techniques that you can employ to start creating the life of your dreams.   Regardless, if you believe the basic premise of Abraham or not, the impact of this book really comes down to how much the concepts identified resonate with you.   And based on my experience with Abraham teachings and hundreds of thousands of others, it resonates quite strongly and with an open-mind will shift your view of the world.   Though there are several incredible books written by Esther and Jerry, I believe this one will have the greatest impact.    3. The Power of Intention   Author: Dr. Wayne Dyer   Published: 2005   I knew I was reading something magnificent when early on in the book, I read the following quote:   “A tiny acorn with no apparent power to think or make plans for its future contains intention from the invisible field. If you cut the acorn open, you won’t see a giant oak tree, but you know it’s there.”   - The Power of Intention   The late Wayne Dyer published, more than 40 books (21 of them bestsellers) and this one, in my opinion is the best one.   It also departures from Wayne’s earlier works because he focuses on co-creating the life of your dreams by working with the energies of intention and the universe, as opposed to working hard on your own to succeed.   This book has so many insights, you’ll want to read it twice and then probably want to read his other books. That’s what happened to me.   This book is also full of practical advice, helping you understand what the faces of intentions look like, obstacles to connecting with these energies and how to apply it in certain situations in your life.   Definitely worth a read!   Bonus: Click Here for a PDF Version of this blog post!
