"A Happy Pocket Full of Money," first self-published in 2001, so impressed Rhonda Byrne, that she asked David Gikandi to become a consultant on The Secret.

In "A Happy Pocket Full of Money," Gikandi explains that true wealth is not about having buckets of cash, but rather understanding the value within. True wealth flows out of developing "wealth consciousness," that incor

Just okay...

I loved the affirmations “I am wealth. I am abundance. I am joy.”

The rest of the book is a repetition of all the emotional denial books out there. ie, “Turn your cheek away from any emotion except joyful ones”. Like those more difficult emotions magically evaporate into thin air and bring wealth.

Spiritual bypass, such as this, sell. It’s time we wake up, folks, to our true emotions and give them real life. If we create a safe space to let these emotions move, that’s where true wealt

Wow! What a great book...

If you are a fan of The Secret and now some law of attraction principles, you should definitely read this book!

Gikandi does a great job of relating how our thoughts and attitudes towards money, wealth and abundance directly contribute to the abundance in our lives.

Even though, law of attraction principles are based on quantum physics and this book relates to the reader in a way that makes law of attraction a bit easier to understand.

Repetetive, but consciously so - in the manner of affirmation. I 'went' with the entire contents and can accept and absorb all the quantum physics, until the author starts drivelling on about off-shore accounts - having spent most of the book talking about leap-of-faith quantum activity that defies such notions. It was not the best of its kind despite the great title! ...more

Recommended by one of my business mentors I initially assumed that by the title this was going to be another cheesy book about money and I couldn't be more wrong.

If you're familiar with reality transurfing concepts and quantum physics this book will be perfect reading for you since it touches on that as well without being so "woo". I've listened to the audiobook and found myself pausing to reflect, taking notes or going back a few seconds due to the number of golden nuggets in this book as well

The keys On How To Have Wealth Consciousness!

This book is about the abstraction of money from the perspective of quantum physics. It is abstract but I still loved it! The author talks about the ways in which you can manifest wealth or push it away with thoughts, actions, deeds, and deeply held beliefs. I really believe that this book has made a difference in my life.

One caveat to fellow readers: I kept waiting for some kind of concrete prescription for meditation, manifestation, etc. That never really came. The meat and potatoes of value

This book provides an extraordinary new way to look at money. I was halfway through the book before I realized that the point was written on the back cover. It says, "True wealth is not about buckets of cash . . it is about discovering value within yourself and other people". A message that eerily coincides with many religious teachings. I'm going to read this book again. ...more

Gikandi discusses focusing on our inner Being to manifest abundance into our lives. The book looks at money through a spiritual lens, which resonated with me.

Worth multiple reads to fully understand the concepts - quantum physics, law of attraction.

Insightful in few, but not much amusing as the reading goes on.

Good book on money consciousness. Really goed into the details of quantum physics while being understandable for someone without this background.
I love that the book addresses the importance of doing good for the world, prioritizing peace, the environment, well being of other people. For what is wealth, if you deprive the rest of the world of resources.

The only thing I didn’t get was the talk about off-shore accounts. Isn’t this a mindset of lack to say that you can loose your money and need t

Keep an open mind as you read this book. It contains a lot of meta-physical concepts that might be difficult to wrap your head around. However, it does offer many insights and mindset shifts around wealth and life in general. It also has practical tips for goal setting, money and spirituality. Even though I already knew some of the manifestation concepts discussed, I really liked the language used to convey them. It was also interesting that the author included the same 3 phrases as affirmations ...more

If you are working on your wealth consciousness, this is a good book in addition to other law of attraction books. It's a fresh way to envision energy and how you can create your reality including wealth and all other aspects of a happy life. If you are a LOA student, it may seem basic, but has a lot of good reminders. ...more

Liked the premise and main points - we have and develop wealth through an abundance, certainty, belief based mindset, but found the (guessing very intentional) repetition in the book distracting. Could have been a couple solid chapters and much shorter and still gotten the points across.

Best book I have ever read. The title is misleading.. It's not really about money but this book finally answers my questions on how we manifest anything in our lives and shares easy steps on changing our mindset to increase wealth consciousness and infinite abundance. ...more
