In this inspirational guide, Wayne Dyer, the author of the phenomenal bestsellers Wisdom of the Ages, Pulling Your Own Strings, and Your Erroneous Zones, reveals seven beliefs central to working miracles in our everyday lives.

When most of us think of magic, we picture a man in a black cape sawing a woman in half, or a sleight-of-hand card trick. But there'

I found this book in a laundromat. It immediately struck me as something I wouldn't read, and then I started reading it anyway. Then I brought it home and kept reading it. Hmmm.

I've finished this book, and I think that I can take a lot from it. And I'll probably read it again. For most of the book, I'm with Dyer and I'm into what he's saying, and then every once in a while I start thinking he's a wack job. And then I'm with him again. It's quite confusing, actually.

This is a wonderful guide to believing in yourself! Thank you again, Dr. Dyer!

I think it's very nice that you dedicated it to MJ & Deepak. I respect that you still recognize Michael as "A transcendent being, who had not only tremendous talent, but a heart as big as the sky" ~Wayne Dyer

This book gives one so many tools to overcome any obstacle and work the miracles she/he is here to accomplish.

I will read again to keep the concepts fresh in my mind.

Cuando empecé a trabajar el eneagrama con mi médico terapeuta, él me decía que al ser todos distintos, no se nos puede dar el mismo consejo, y así mismo, a cada uno nos llega o nos sirve un autor diferente. En mi caso, que predomina lo emocional y espiritual, él me recomendó a Louise Hay, a quien le he escuchado un audio. Para las personas más mentales está Eckart Tolle, a quien leí El Poder del Ahora, y me gustó. También hay autores para las personas más espirituales, para las más prácticas, en ...more

This was one of my favourite books and I recommended it to others for at least 15 years after I first read it. Overall I read it 6 times. Even today it's still worth the read.

“This book was written with the express purpose of showing you the way to create what you may have previously thought to be impossible in your life.”

“When I gave up the pursuit of money, more of it flowed into my life than I had ever known before. Why? Because I was living my purpose and surrendering to the universe to provide for my needs.”

“If you want to experience prosperity at a miraculous level, you must leave behind your old ways of thinking and develop a new way of imagining what is poss

El genero de este libro es sin duda la espiritualidad, así que, si no eres una persona religiosa, o con cierto interés por lo trascendente, no disfrutarás de él.

Tras pasar la última página y cerrar el libro, me quedo con la sensación de que me queda mucho que aprehender de esta obra, con la primera lectura solo alcanzo a ver la superficie, pero me gusta lo que veo: somos seres espirituales antes que seres físicos, y a través de nuestro interior, podemos conectar con una inteligencia superior que

Recommends it for: Those who liked The Secret
This book is excellent! It's subtitle tells it all: Creating Miracles in Everyday Life. As anyone who has watched Oprah can tell you. It's all about what's going on inside of us. But it's not always easy to change our thoughts, or even to catch ourself thinking them.

Wayner Dyer provides great tips in an easy to read book that helps us to change our thinking.

In one line: Think of this book as the 'how-to' for the book The Secret. (Note: this book was originally copyrighted in 1992)
This is the first book Wayne Dyer wrote as he really started to go off the deep end into New Age mysticism and "manifesting miracles". As always with Wayne, the writing and anecdotes are good, and the message is positive. Worth reading, but take some things with a grain of salt.

(This book was given to my sister as a so call gift) BUT ALERT!! I urge you to throw this book away!! It has Hidden messages and it's trying make people join the new age. You want to know about spirituality and miracles read The Holy Bible. It tells us everything we need to know, including deceiving things such as this. I'm telling you and I'm warning you, I'm practically begging everyone please don't read this book, it's a trick from the devil himself. And if no one don't want to listen to me, ...more

Es un libro difícil de asimilar, puede que sea mi escepticismo el que no puede lidiar con algunas cosas que cuenta el Doctor Wayne, que asegura con plena certeza de que esa realidad mágica de la que habla es cierta y parte de todos los seres humanos. Verdaderamente su solución parece mágica, se basa en el pensamiento como constructor de la realidad el cual enfocado a la ayuda del prójimo se orientará sin lugar a dudas a proporcionar abundancia ilimitada a quien se lo proponga.

It's interesting to find how we can achieve the same goal from different approaches which derived from different experience. Thank you Dr.Wayne for sharing yours.

If you are interested in self development and spirituality, this is the book for you.

Un increíble libro sobre espiritualidad, el cual nos muestra diferencias claras entre una persona que se enfoca en su vida espiritual y quienes no, y nos enseña la manera de transformar nuestra vida y crear "una realidad mágica"; un cambio de enfoque que te permitirá vivir de manera que todo es posible, porque como seres espirituales no poseemos ninguna de las limitaciones que nos hemos impuesto en el mundo físico.

Beyond amazing beyond captivating

This book is a masterpiece. It has kept me hooked from beginning to end. I loved and resonated with every bit of it. Except for one major disagreement that I have either with Dr. Wayne or with my understanding of what Dr. Wayne was trying to say.

I completely disagree that we as humans have any divinity within us. I ascribe all power and all ability to God. Everything good that I am able to create even if with the power of mind is done because of God not because o

Not at all my favorite. I think I might of liked it better if he didn't dedicate the book to Michael Jackson. I judged him instantly (although not fair) as someone I didn't want to take spiritual advice from. I really didn't love the book... It was a bit to out there for me, however I also can't say I disagreed with anything he said either. I think it's a great book for anyone who doesn't have any specific beliefs to start understanding there is a higher power. If you do have stronger spiritual ...more

don't like it so much as some other kind of "metaphisics" books.

with a lot of cool phrases of some cool authors, but with a lot of stupidities about the perspective of the psiche, that can harm the mind, thought.

"La gente siempre le echa la culpa a sus circunstancias por lo que ellos son. Yo no creo en las circunstancias. La gente a la que le va bien en la vida es la gente que va en busca de las circunstancias que quieren y si no las encuentran, se las hacen, se las fabrican."

One of the first books I read on my journey. A gentle, wise, & easy to relate to book. Don't judge a book by its cover (dislike the new cover). The contents inside are warming & reassuring. A wonderful read!
Another great Wayne Dyer book. It's not about "magic" like tricks and spells. It's more of a metaphor for creating beautiful things in your own life. Creating a magical life for yourself and those around you!

Took me a while before what I read "stuck" so I read much of the beginning of book multiple times before it began to click. Enjoyed the book once I got on a roll.

Slow read...great subject of being spiritual and how to control your life. Also how what one thinks affects the entire around. The thought is what it is.
