Start your review of Your Invisible Power
The critical view of books like this and their contemporary equivalents like “The Secret” or “Ask and It Is Given” is that they focus on and pander to materialism. So then people ask, is it really good to use the power of visualization to manifest a materialistic object like say a new $80000 BMW? When we begin to ask such question, we’ve totally missed the point. What you use “Your Invisible Power” (Visualization > Manifestation) for is not what’s significant here. What is much more important is ...more

“Even intense fear requires faith.” -Your Invisible Power

I like a lot of things about this book. What I gained the most was the articulate written-expression of holding the image in your mind that you want to become.

You become in your mental domain first, whatever it is that you will, secondly, desire to be in its physical form. Thoughts are real and they are everything—in most cases. If one is having trouble achieving their dreams, then this book will possibly help you to excavate one of the r

Almost every line a truth... a jewel.

"The thing you most need is to consistently be your best self."

"The Joy of Living comes from within. Therefore, make the effort to obtain the things which will bring joy, provided that your desires are in accord with the Joy of Living."

"All study and meditation should be without strain or tension."

Very reminiscent of Florence Scovel Shinn, Prentice Mulford, and Neville Goddard. If you liked any of those authors, you'll probably like this too.

My takeaway from this: "For every five minutes given to reading and study of the theories of Mental Science, spend fifteen minutes in the use and application of the knowledge acquired." Your Invisible Power, pg 56. Good advice.

Great book! I would say it requires some knowledge of the Law of Attraction beforehand though only because her terminology may be hard to understand.. I wouldn't recommend it to someone as their first book on the subject although the subject is pretty basic. It was a quick read and I did learn some new tips on visualizing, so all in all, it was worth it. ...more

I’m enjoying listening to the book on YouTube. Chapter 6, which begins at 45:56 is very useful as she gives suggestions for giving yourself a mental picture, in other words, visualizing, a technique medically and scientifically proven to work. This resonates with books like the Secret, among others,we read and have been pleased to witness excellent results. In chapter 8 she says that in her emptiness, isolation and longing she studied Christian Science and it gave her no solace as it felt imposs ...more

This is rather a Christian book that has elements of the law of attraction, but is about visualisation of desires (what we say dream on). He has good arguments why to practise euxaristies and pray and explains Christianity from a rather unusual new age point of view.

Written in 1921 following the New Thought movement and Thomas Troward. Focuses on visualization and faith. Excellent read.

"It is the Faith which understands that every creation had its birth in the womb of thought -words that gives you dominion over all things, your lesser self included, and this feeling of faith is increased and intensified through observing what it does."

I think I need to give it a second listen, otherwise, I remain a skeptic of esoteric philosophy. I was surprised that Behrend's (and by proxy her mentor's) beliefs are still vested in Christianity and yet still part of "New Thought" philosophy. ...more

New Thought isn't all that new. It's been around for centuries. The resurgence of Mental Science is expanding exponentially. The Secret, What the Bleep Do We Know & the Law of Attraction are three recent examples of the principles of Mental Science that have made it popular. But before these came about, before they leapt onto our TV screens and into the pages of books, people like Geneveive Behrend were already writing about it, lecturing about it and teaching it throughout the world. This littl ...more

Judge Thomas Troward was an incredible man deeply rooted in science, philosophy ,nature and how we truly are a manifestation of God. Genevieve Behrend was his only student who came back from after studying with him for 2 years 1912-1914 in London she was American and she wrote this book. Every sentence is packed with so much depth - many books have been written on New Thought manifestation /law of Atrraction however they don't get to the depth of the topic to the real juice and I believe that Ms ...more

This is a little tiny book so powerful on the invisible power.The power within which enables you to form a thought picture is the starting point of all there is there is a power within you and it is going to enable you to do anything you want to do if you learn to with it now.

Order of visualization.

The practice of visualizing always keeps the mind engaged and in control as it also attracts things useful in your life to make the life more fun in the normal way.

This book consisted primarily of law of attraction information packaged in a more antiquarian and interestingly phrased format. Of course since it was written in the 19th century, it is not without the Victorian habit of mentioning and praising God, but fortunately in this book, not excessively so. A nice feature of this book is that it is short, and doesn't repeat itself quite as often as it could. ...more

Mixed feelings about this book, starts nicely with stories about Wright brothers and how they used the power of visualization. Later on it uses the power of pray (ok that has been proved scientifically as well) and hypnotism. Refers to Man as Thinkent and other books of the time. Maybe the old style bothered me and this actually better than 3 stars book, I dont know.

Great complement to other Law of Attraction books
It is amazing to find concepts like visualization, vibration and Low Of attraction in a book that was first published in 1921.
It is definitely worth re-reading.

Have you seen "The Music Man"? This is nothing but Harold Hill's "think system", only Hill explained it so much more clearly. An old friend urged me to read this book. It, and others like it have brought her some peace and happiness, and I'm pleased for her. It's not for me, though.

Knowing it would be discussed at some point, I did my best to decipher the nearly unintelligible New Age gibberish. Once I got the gist of some of what Behrend was spouting, I had to reluctantly admit that a few of he

A FANTASTIC book that is a COMPLETE and thorough manual for manifestation written in a beautiful, simple and story full way. It leaves you inspired, it helps you understand your connection to God, the divine energy and that you are a part of it.
As an avid reader who has read numerous books on spiritual matters, books on buddhism, christianity and such, this is one of the books that I would recommend to everyone looking for a complete explanation and manual for using visualization to manifest th

It was good but I found it kind of hard to read as I'm not one to really enjoy these sort of indepth, intellectual books, if that makes sense. :)
It was interesting and had some good points for me to think about further as I did take some notes but if a friend didn't lend the book to me I probably wouldn't have picked it out myself to read. It was a quick read so that helped me stick with it and get through it.
All in all, not bad but just not my usual kind of book.
