James Ray has a unique approach to the Laws of Attraction. It is an approach that works. This book, the latest in his series, moves beyond the laws and takes you to all areas of your life in thoughts, feelings and actions.
Go 3 for 3 for your life. Well worth reading or listening to if you like to hear the book in order to assimilate the principles -

Ray does an excellent job of explaining the five pilar a of wealth. His voice makes the book easy and interesting to read. Thought provoking exercises make this book life changing for those willing to put in the work.

I give up. I simply cannot finish this book. He has a lot to say that I think is dead-on accurate, but he focuses WAY too much on financial wealth. It's only one of his "five pillars of harmonic wealth," and yet he devotes nearly half the book to talking about it.

I felt like he paid lip service to the philosophy that money can't buy happiness & that a lack of money or a mismanagement of money buys a lot of UNhappiness, but he lost me with the focus on becoming a multimillionaire. Particular

What bizarre ontic resonances play off of this text.

It's the work of a fallen health-and-wealth guru, at the height of his game. The essence of this book is no different than the work of Crefo A. Dollar or Joel Osteen, only spun through some peculiar quantum multiversal lens. The "law of attraction" is just the Prosperity Gospel's name it and claim it," two birds of one flawed feather.

I feel the power of it, why it would have filled him with such wild confidence. It's potently seductive Me-magic

Great book! Gets you thinking about things you've never even considered. You end up becoming a different person (no joke) from reading this book and asking yourself the questions contained throughout. You will definitely believe in the law of attraction after you've read this book. One more thing: I promise if you read this book, and follow the tips contained within you will attract the life that you want. It did for me and day after day, its getting better and better! Thanks James Arthur Ray!

This book as "food for thought" is quite good, but I would have preferred to acquire it used and then send the author half of the retail value because it seems to me that half of the wisdom therein (and I feel I'm being generous by saying half) was his own wisdom. I also grew tired of his constant catch-phrase "think about that one" which comes up time and again in the book as it does in his interviews. For one, the concepts are not so far fetched or shocking that I need to pause and think about ...more

Whilst this book is great and brings together many aspects of the law of attraction teachings and self help material taught by many like James Arthur Ray - in line with his own message and advice .., don't just jump into something without following your gut feeling too ...

And I do think the author is just me me me at times ... Hence no wonder he just assumes everybody could be as dedicated or all out like.. Which recently on his watch caused the deaths of many innocent people who just followed h

Well, in a way I learned quite a bit from this book. But about halfway through I found out the author is in prison, which sort of threw me off a bit. I mean, yes, he's got some great stuff in here, but you's a little weird to discover he went off the rails with it later. As my dad says, "That's why you have to be your own hero."

Anyway, I found this a very useful book and I'm glad I read it. Like others said, tons of it is just old theories in a new, somewhat fresh, way. But all self-he

This book is a perfect survivor guide luckily left to the followers of James Arthur Ray before the unfortunate accident and eventual conviction of this highly vibrant author. You will find golden nuggets of life-altering wisdom on every page, and along with the principles from "The Secret." This will be a wonderful one, two punch to attracting the high-frequency and vibration via energy and harmony to your life and alter your DNA, resulting in a life free of all clutter and negativity.

Time to start going 3 for 3, which is aligning your thoughts, feelings, and actions. There is so many great and practical things to take away from this book and start applying them to your own life. I highly recommend this book.

Some books are filled with great ideas but because of self-limitations they're hard to put into practice.

Straight away I connected to Ray's raw conversational style and took action on his ideas. As a result, I spent three weeks in a city I'd wanted to explore, have started dating and am attracting one opportunity after another.

The ideas in this book are useless unless you do something with them. Unless you make them work, you can't say whether they're just theory.

Some books you can live by da

Just started this book after attending his workshop. Many of the ideas are concepts I have been aware of for 20 years, but not fully applied. It is great to be in touch with a positive influence and some new steps to apply. My relationships and professional life is better as a result. It's too bad, Mr. Ray took his concepts a bit too far and some of his followers died in a sweat lodge. James Arthur Ray was found guilty in these deaths.

I still think the concepts of attracting what you want into

I don't avoid chaos, actually as a warrior I seek it out so that I may bring order to it.

"Endless oceans of money flow to me, in ever-increasing quantities and avalanches of abundance, for I am one with God and God is everything"

"It takes longer to grow a mighty oak than a willow"

"Make your intention statements specific, positive, and present tense."

" You form your world with your intention and you hold it together with your attention."

Am absolutely loving this book, and it's a slow read because of how the author has pulled together so much of what I've read previously, understood from others and from my own inner promptings. I sense it'll be a "keeper" for many re-reads in the future. I've barely made a dent in it, and the author has had me hooked from the first page! I love the five pillars; it makes so much sense.

This book is a great way to understand how the many areas of your life are manageable with using the laws and principles of success. I attended this seminar in LAs vegas, and received life changing advice. The book is a great way to put me back in mind in the frame of mind to achieve the life that we all wish to have.

This book has many great nuggets. The book is written from a Law of Attraction perspective, but has valuable information for those who desire balance in all areas of life. I enjoyed some parts more than others, but I would definitely suggest this as a beginner's book for someone starting out on any spiritual path.

meaty and juicy guidance about achieving wealth in the major areas of life -- financially, spiritually, mentally, relationally, and physically. great online references are included in the text for further study with this author and his ideas. i appreciated the scientific grounding he provides for his work.

I'm not doing my due diligence with this book, like I can't seem to just sit down and devour it. Could be , because there are lists to make, etc... so I read a little, skim a little and looking for time to create my lists. This is written by James Arthur Ray, he is one of the teachers in The Secret.

Not a great book, and not a smart thing to do.

From reading the book this is not the first time he's "bottomed out".

This was required reading for a seminar I attended. Having studied the Law of Attraction for a couple of decades, I wasn't expecting much but so far, I'm enjoying James' approach. I don't agree 100 percent with what he says or how he says it, but it's better than I anticipated.
Kara Maia Spencer
While I agree with what the author is saying about creating balance in all arenas of one's life for success, I find his personal stories and opinions to be somewhat tedious and grating. I'm having a hard time finishing this one.
Creating wealth in all areas of your life - financial, emotional, relational, mental and spiritual. More practical than The Secret. Guys may be able to relate to him better than others of his genre.

It was very excited book. It contains a lot of useful techniques and theories that are close to my kind of thinking. I will apply some of them in the future.

Definitely I will read that book again.

Between this book and Science of Success, you start understanding how the universe is harmonized. Also, how a person can bring whatever he/she want to themselves. You have to read these books.

I learned a lot about creating the life I want. I also learned to take complete responsibility for my choices at every moment and how to be aware of how my thoughts create my reality. Great book!

Much of the material is recycled from other sources, however it is still powerful. Engaging speaker and author. Some new ideas in here that are noteworthy. Will review the material again.

Excellent book; of which I am wanting to add to my personal library. I listened to this on book on CD. Too bad it wasn't read by the author. A very informative, inspirational book.

I have been to his seminars and listen to his CD's, it is unbelievably amazing. I have ways to go, but so far I learned how to find success and still learning.
