Great book, smooth and easy to read...Many great insights to understand how we restrict ourselves from the abundance that is our birthright. simple exercises to shift the tides of that behavior into full, rich, "voluptuous" and "juicy" lives (as the author, Victoria Castle puts it).
Brilliant book. Great visuals and metaphors helping us to understand immediately how we separate ourselves from our rightful seat in the scheme of life which only we can fill. As we stand outside "the circle" no one can take our place but the disconnection is what is most painful to us and all we need do is reclaim our space and breathe.
This excellent guide to ending fearful and self-defeating stories, and embodying the mind of abundance, is a classic of the psychology of wealth. Victoria Castle's smart, funny handbook gives readers an eminently readable (illustrated!) way to change what's holding you back from expressing a life of generosity and plenty.
