This is in the grand tradition of The Secret. Positive thinking will make your life all better and you will have everything you want. I have a lot of problems with this sort of thinking and with some of the concepts in here.

Two of the principles I have the most problems with are The Principle of Polarity and the Principle of Gender. Among other things these are basically dualism, while she explains polarity with some examples that are more circular than linear, I also have a problem with assign

Divine Magic is a wonderful up to date, easily understandable version of The Kybalion ~ The Seven Hermetic/Thoth Principles of All & gives a greater understanding of our True Path in Life & how to balance yourself for manifestation of True Self ~ Turn on That Heart Centered Awareness & Shine back into All ~ Namaste~*

A pretty interesting look at the laws of the Universe and how to work with them, rather than against them.

I've seen some other reviews of this book which complain about this law of attraction stuff being rubbish. If you think it's rubbish, why are you reading books about it? This book is quite obviously about how to use the laws of the universe along with changing your own thoughts to make changes in your life. If that's not your thing, go read something else.

I actually really liked this book.
Wow. This is certainly another must-read for those spiritually-minded! It presents the ancient teachings of Hermes in a scientific way that easily pleases those of us who believe the unexplained is simply undiscovered by science as yet. There are going to be plenty of skeptics that this will be a tough read for but for those who are more open-minded this has a lot of helpful information about controlling your thoughts and taking control of your own happiness. I love how it's been broken down but ...more

Excellent book! I listen to the CD while I am driving, and am able to retain the information much better than if I had read the book. This book has condensed the more complicated version of "The Kybalion" into a work that is easier to understand and teach. Great book; highly recommend it. Tamara :)

Read for school. Honestly I don't have an opinion one way or another.

The topics/laws were fascinating to read/learn about, but didn't completely resonate with me. I can see how some might value this though.

Majority of this book is excerpts from the actual Kybalion and I didn't find her interpretations to add a lot of additional insight or value. The concepts of Kybalion deserves 5 stars and I recommend you to pick up a copy.

I gave it two stars because I support thinking from the end, which is basically what this is about to put it very simply. I only happened across this book, so I read it quickly between books hoping it would offer me something to help me through a difficult experience. I don't know what it was but I couldn't shake the strange bad feeling I got every time I picked up this book. I also read Ask And It Is Given immediately following this one. Both books might be wonderful for the right person at the ...more

A very inciteful book. One that has to be read atleast twice to understand how to utilize the methods of Hermetics. An open mind is needed and a willingness to utilize the visualization part of the mind. After that, it is pure magic and delightful occurences happen making the proven methods true over and over again. It is book which requires patience and practice of using the hermetic system, however, once it is learned and practice, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Doreen has used her wisdom and writing skills to make the Hermetic information understandable to any layperson. I consistently refer back to the book and gain new understanding each time I re-read specific sections. Her lever chart for polarity is especially helpful in changing attitudes quickly. Highly recommend!

For those who like New Thought and/or Law of Attraction teachings then this book will be a winner. For anyone else, read my review if you like:

Gives an easy-to-understand overview of 7 Hermetic principles that we can apply to our daily living. Will help you gain insight & perspective into ways you can better your life, by raising your thoughts to a higher, positive level. Also comes with a free cd you can listen to with the same info.

a good presentation of ancient teachings - more scientifically worded/presented true to the Hermetic teachings - easy exercises to utilize - CD comes w/book - haven't listened to it yet - sure I will enjoy

I usually like Doreen Virtue, but this one was a little too "deep" and abstract.

By the time I read this I had read quite a bit of Doreen Virtue books and I was getting overly saturated with the same message delivered in only slighly varying ways.

Overall, I think it was a good read. She did a decent job of taking a more complex and sometimes confusing text and making it concise and much easier to follow and comprehend.

Understanding the essence of All

This was a quick simple book that put into perspective who we are and how we interact with our mental functioning universe to master our lives.
