You get what you want out of life, exactly what you want. Why aren't you rich and famous with that special someone hanging on your every word? The answer is so simple that it's maddening. Thought manifests form. In other words, whatever you think about that's what you create in your life.

There's good news and bad news to this life changing discovery. First the bad news. Most of us spend the majority of our day drawing to us exactly what we don't want. I hope that my boss doesn't call me on gett

This was the topic of an excellent book I read recently: "Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting," by Lynn Grabhorn. With a practical and easy-to-read (not to mention downright humorous) style, Ms. Grabhorn provides a simple process for "flowing energy" in the right direction.

In fact, the book actually got my emotions flowing even as I was reading it! I found myself laughing out loud and having little "aha!" moments every few pages. Even knowing as much as I like to think I know about the Law of Attrac

I started reading this book because I got it from the library. I read a story to my husband about a tiny baseball player (spoilers) that Lynn writes about, then I didn't have time to finish it. I wanted my husband to get on board with me because I could already tell that this wasn't like any other self-help book out there within the first chapter!
My husband didn't seem too interested... A little while later (and I'm not sure how long, or who he listened to- cuz it wasn't me!), we were sitting in

I do believe that when you think positively, you generate good energy that allow you to attract and find practical ways to get the good things in life but to say that I can “feel” my way to health, wealth and happiness is just crap! In real life, bad things happen to good positive people and good things also happen to mean, negative jerks! This book didn’t add anything new, it was very repetitive, boring and unrealistic. What a waste of my money!

What an awesome book.
Unbelievable for many i bet.
This is one of my favourite genres, you feel a completely different person AFTER reading a book. I love the sensation of inner progress. I love the feeling of closing the book for the very last time and actually see that NOW you see LIFE in a VERY different way. THIS BOOK TAKES YOU THERE.
I so loved it, i wont give it away because I'm sure I'll need read it again in no too long but I'm gonna buy a couple more copies for a few someone's I have in mi

I would recommend this self help book to anyone and everyone! My father taught me this principle when I was a child and, when I've been awake enough to remembered its truth, I've use it. If we could only remember all the time that it is God's will for us to be happy. Thanks Lynn Grabhorn and thanks Dad.

Don't let the goofy title put you off. This book about the now infamous Law of Attraction is well worth reading. Grabhorn (gotta love that last name!) explains it all in down to earth language with irreverant humor and personal stories we can all relate to. Love it!

I did read every word. I have found that emotionally I feel better when I use some of the techniques described by the Law of Attraction but this book takes it so far as to blame rape victims for having negative energy that attracts said rape into their lives and I can't stand that. There were techniques that are helpful for when you get caught up in all the negative don't have's or beat yourself up for mistakes but I wouldn't bother reading this book as the writing is repetitive and down right o ...more

I've read this book on and off for awhile, picking it up when I needed a little positivity in my life. I was all for this book until I got about 3/4 through and it started getting a little shaky. From there it just got worse.

For instance:
"It's not the tainted smoke from the cigarettes that kills you; it's the disallowance of Life through the Life line. It's not the heart attack that kills you; it's the disallowance of Life that caused the attack in the first place . Let that Life force pour stea

Sigh... the premise of the book is fine. I was buying into it because I agree with Grabhorn's philosophy in general. Once I finished the book, I discovered she had passed away several years ago. An Internet search divulged few details, but it seems the author either died of cancer, or perhaps even by her own hand because she was terminally ill. My heart goes out to this poor woman and her family, but these circumstances seem to undermine her central message. I can't help but feel the credibility ...more

This is one of my favorite books and one that I have given to numerous friends over the years. Lynn Grabhorn writes as if you are a friend and this is a conversation. I like the way she encourages the reader to go deep and feeeel the emotions of what they want to attract into their lives. I've read it several times.

It is in the recommended reading section of my book, The Upside of Down Times: Discovering the Power of Gratitude which can be found here:

This book is truly excellent! I encourage you open minded readers to really challenge yourselves with this great read. It will definitely change your mind set on the everyday life around you, though only if you choose to. ;) I think you would really enjoy this book, it really put me on edge and made me think about the world around me with a fresh, new, crisp perspective. I know I let it change my me indeed. So don't be afraid, and try to think differently for once about your life and the great, ...more

Recommends it for: everyone!
This book really did change my life. It makes you look at things differently and you can see how it can change your life for the better. It's not as easy as it sounds to follow all the ideas listed, but gives me something to aim for. Some minor things bothered me about the book, but overall fantastic. I plan on reading it again and taking notes this time!

When I read The Secret, I found the concept of positive energy drawing other positive energy (and vice versa) compelling. However, it all seemed to simplistic...this book, expands on that idea and also includes ways to change from a negative "vibration" to a positive. In all, I think that is the most powerful element of this book...real techniques to enact that change.

This was one of the most inspirational books I've ever read. It makes me happy just looking at it, so I always keep it close by. If I am down or "stuck," I just flip through it and read a couple pages and I feel better. It reminds me that my attitude is crucial in bringing me what I want in life.

I really enjoyed the different outlook and stories in this book... since it's all about energy. It was a great reminder! It took a few chapters for me to get past the fact the author COMPLETELY and unabashdly ripped off all the content of her book from Esther Hicks and didn't give credit or payment where it was due. Oh well, the author and her karma will have to deal with that.

I have read this inspiring book once, and found that there is a lot of power in how you feel. Negative feelings draw negative happenings to your life, and Positive, joyful feelings bring success to your life. When I slip into negative, it's time to read this book again!

On my second read starting now!

After re-reading The secret for the 26th time, I was recommended this book by a friend as a hands-on continuation.
What a godsend! This book gives you very practical tips in an everyday tone that as been so helpful to me. Straight away things in my life started to change for the better. Highly recommended to anyone practicing the law of attraction.

Dave K: (seeing me reading this book) Hey, you know that author eventually went insane and killed herself?
Me: What? Great, I didn't want to know that!

My favorite piece from this book involves telling yourself a new story, in the form of a fairy tale, about your life... or rather the life you want to create. A fun tool in the toolbox of Law of Attraction practices. The title does not do the quality of this book justice.

Just love this book! Read it for the second time this week, after being handed it by a friend several years ago. It's a great introduction to the law of attraction principles, written in an easy-to-read, fun and uplifting narrative.

It's just Abraham material. Except she doesn't credit her source, so I'd rather read the real thing.

The book in 3 sentences.

It’s about feelings and how by feeling good we can attract or realize our deepest wishes.
Notice what you don’t want, choose what you want, find a feeling for this wish, think about it when you are feeling jazzed or “buzzing” in the book.
NEVER focus on what you don’t want and instead the a habit of thinking and focusing on what you want in any area of you life.
Make feeling good your priority #1 in life.


Damn it, I got 4)

Is that all there is in the book? Of course no

When I started this book I got all excited and bought into everything the author professed, vowing to myself I was going to make it work for me. For several weeks I really worked hard at doing everything the author prescribed, And when I began to perceive a few minor successes (like a few $100 that came to me quite unexpectedly), I got really encouraged. Soon, however, I was forced to face the fact that what I was experiencing was merely wishful thinking, pure and simple. Still, I continued to h ...more
