To successfully upgrade from scarcity and struggle to Abundance and ease, we must interrupt and dislodge old patterns that have been living quite comfortably within us, acting like they own the place. These old patterns are like a cat that likes to sleep on your head but isn't the least bit interested in the fact that you are allergic. It's time to move the cat. A little d ...more

The main point of the book is that the experience of abundance in life depends on your psychological outlook. Castle explores the way in which personal narrative, generosity, and openness, among other concepts, influences either a sense of abundance or its opposite, scarcity and constriction.

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.
It shares what we already know at our Divine core. Presented with a conversation that we can integrate into our lives. I really enjoyed. Recommended by a friend who did Om Time's YTT, where it was part of the curriculum.

Very inspirational. Less hype than The Secret, which made it more real to me. I loved the use of quotes throughout the book.
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.
