My review in Dialect Magazine:

Most wishes come true in a simple fashion but this multi-layered book on how to master conscious creation is a simple but deep read. Laura Day is not too spiritual and not at all religious. She writes a 9-point plan to a wish turned into reality.

Her newer edition of “The Circle” includes a workbook which many find helpful in implementing Day’s techniques. Many things come true one way or another. Even when wishes don’t manife
This is really beautiful book about intention setting and manifestation. It's a smaller book, but is really chock filled. THIS should have received all the attention, NOT THE SECRET. It's not hype and it's not just focused on manifesting like a huge coporation for yourself (like The Secret seemed to be tinged with-- big material successes. This turned me off to the Secret's vibe. Yes, it's nice to do well financially, but it seemed quite flaunted with the authors of The Secret.) The Circle is de ...more
This book might be difficult to review -as it could be interpreted as a religion instead of a movement. The Circle is a place where all is well and you accept good/bad as life experiences. This teaches that everything can be reinterpreted to make even bad things seem better by finding a hidden learning possibility out of it.

I can try understand the "enlightment" or inner Chi experience of life, but it is not as easy to live this lifestyle. This book talked in the possibilities of achieving it, b
Loved it so much that I'm going to reread it and I rarely reread books.

This book has a good concept, live in your dream world and it will become a reality. My problems are; it's too spiritual, some parts of the book come across as weird and ineffective to me, and the writing doesn't appeal to me. If you read it and filter out the spiritual stuff, you can get so good ideas. I liked the mental priorities it mentions, that can be useful along with much of the things in this book. I do not recommend this book but it all depends on the reader. I hope anyone who reads my ...more
Here is my review. I gave this book no stars. That should tell you how my review for this book will go.

I did, however, find a couple of nice quotes but they are more interesting out of context than they are when read within the pages of this thankfully slender book.
The is a very clear, very simple, solution base of thought efforts for self-realization to send our Spirit soaring, and swirling and centered in our own circle. A teaching of practical tools to see ourselves in our best space, our best light, where we offer up our best self. It is short and sweet.

I used to have the book -- the original simple format without the journaling part added at the end.
It's my favorite by Laura Day. Yes, it's basically the Law of Attraction, but put in a magically attractive way. I love the book design and organization, too -- makes great gift. <3
Very similar to the secret and the alchemist. a very quick read. Actually just found it laying around the house picked it up and finished it in one sitting. If you ever think of giving someone the secret but you know they would read it, recommend this book instead.

This is a wonderful guide book for practicing the Circle Meditation. Some of the ideas are no doubt radical and could be fully understood and assimilated only in due course by sincere practice.

The power and clarity behind the writing is amazing.
This book contains information and exercises for self-discovery. The author, Laura Day, used the "logical" approach in her teachings on the use of intuition. I will most likely work my way through it more than once.
I enjoy a good book on intention, and Laura Day is very succinct with her advice. I recommend this book for anyone looking to shift their thinking, especially in today's discombobulated world.
I like the idea, and I like some of the quotes if they are taken out of context, but this whole book brings something to be desired.

A beautifully simple and elegant book with a powerful message. Reading it and working it really did change my life -- profoundly.
So far it seems very "The Secret" to me! I really enjoy this kind of information
The secret was way more compelling for me...
