“Open Your Mind To Receive” is a fabulous book- Catherine Ponder really created something wonderful here. What makes this book different from the other ‘prosperity’ books I’ve read is that Catherine explains that you aren’t getting because you’re not ‘giving’. The emphasis on giving is spread out through this entire book.

I first read this book 7 years ago when I was 23 years old; it really opened my eyes to the rules of prosperity. After reading this book and applying it’s principles I doubled

My mother introduced me to Catherine Ponder - one of the most wonderful authors about God Law in Action. Catherine Ponder taught me how to focus on Love - and open my heart to the fact that God is the governing and prospering power over all things on a physical level. After I read this book - I had to read as many of her books as possible - they changed my life forever and helped me through a time when my father lost his job and we had to make it through with God's help each and every day - just ...more

Open Your Mind to Receive is a keeper! It’s short and concise, presenting seven ideas in seven short chapters full of real-life stories, each followed by a list of the 10 major points from each chapter. So, it’s accessible. It feels refreshing to read it. Rather than emphasizing what people do wrong, Ponder focuses on how to let go of old habits and how to self-talk more productively. While I don’t agree with all her ideas (tithing to a church doesn’t work for non-churchy types), most of the cha ...more

This little book is the second Ponder book I've read. The author informs us of the basic principles of prosperity work - the necessity of tithing, the practice of releasing worries and negative thoughts in general, talking positively in daily life, declaring affirmations and having the attitude "nothing but the best", among other things.

The chapter I appreciated most was on the power of agreement, i.e. how it was advantageous to agree and cooperate with others if possible while remaining true to
Good for keeping positive attitude

Old fashioned diction. Lots of affirmations for staying hopeful, being kind and overlooking things other people do that might bother you in favor of remembering all their good points.
