Really good; but you have to do the exercises to get the most from it. It's the kind of book that you need to keep going back to. I had some big realisations and I'd definitely recommend it to others.

I am slogging through this book. It is one that I LOVE to read, but requires homework which I slack on and then don't finish...

Since I don't think I will read this book very quickly, I'll throw out a quick review of what it is so far: VERY good. I am not typically attracted to financial or money books. This is not anything like a Suze Orman bestseller (which usually make me feel that I am doing everything wrong anyway.) This book is more philosophical and is designed to make you see money in a different way, as an energy source for the life you want. You are not asked to review your "portfolio" but your goals, aspiratio ...more

Highly recommended (at least through the first few parts, up until the section on forgiveness which to me seems to belong to a different book.) The exercises involving your own personal Standards of Integrity (who are you really?) and Life Intentions (what do you reallly want to do before you die?) alone are worth the price of admission.

This book has been on my shelf for almost a year now and I cant seem to get past the first few chapters despite consciously trying several times. There is something very pre 9-11 innocent about it that bugs me. What does a 15-year old terrorist attack have to do with a book about one's spiritual relationship with money? Hard to say.....but the book sounds like many books and people I knew when I was younger and a little bit more naively "spiritual". This book isn't world-weary or pained enough f ...more

Really spiritual

If you are a spiritual person this book is for you. It takes the principles of spirituality and directly applies them to money. It is dense but well-written. It is a wonderful compliment to anyone's spiritual practice. I'm so grateful to have read this book. In all fairness, this book has little to do with money, but instead reminds you of your spirit so you can directly apply those principles to your cash. Lovely. Sophisticated read.

This is a really good book for exploring (personal) money history as well breaking through old patterns/beliefs regarding money. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in shifting their views about money.

Perhaps I could have given this book five stars as it is an exceptional read. I thoroughly enjoyed taking my time navigating the information and exercises. It's important to do the exercises, and you'll see why. As time passes doing the exercises reveal a great deal about who you are and where your energy (not just money related) is. I found the read enlightening. I've already incorporated some things, and I'm definitely more mindful as a result of the read. There's gratitude for sure. The book ...more

I'm not reading this so much as keeping it by the bed and randomly reading a short chapter when I have nothing else in reach. I'm just sick of feeling like I'm studying, so it works well this way, picking up tidbits and food for thought to slowly digest. It's an interesting read, and I recommend it.

One of the best books related to money I've ever read! I have been speaking with Maria Nemeth's, the author & will be offering some upcoming web innards featuring Maria as our guest speaker!

I prefer Denise Duffield-Thomas's books Lucky Bitch and Get Rich Lucky Bitch over The Energy of Money. However, Maria Nemeth has very salient points, plenty of activities to try, and a generally accessible writing style.

For me, the reason this was a three star book and not a four star was the excessive - for me, not necessarily for others - focus on spending less and not wasting income. That is not my issue, and pretty much never has been. So I wasn't necessarily her target demographic. She see

Loved the timing – got this book soon after I told a small group in November ‘I can’t ask for money’ (no connection between the two incidents!) and the exact same words stare back at me from the book.

Interesting concepts that I did not expect in a book about money – community support vs going solo, forgiveness(!), abundance mindset vs scarcity mindset and gratitude.

The author shares stories / beliefs / myths that participants in her workshops shared and I’m guessing that something or the other

I found some of the wording in this book aggravating. The term "monkey mind" struck me like nails on a damn chalkboard every single time it popped up in the text, and it popped up a lot. Don't blame monkeys for my poor decision making. I'm an asshat, sure, but the monkeys aren't to blame. Somebody, please, think of the monkeys.

Parts of this I found utterly useless, and had a tough time getting through, because they either didn't really apply to me, or for whatever reason I couldn't pay attentio

The approach in this book is very different than other finance books. It helped me consider life long goals and had been insightful.

“Life is hard when you don’t do what you truly value because you are putting all your energy into trying to get rid of your fears rather than into materializing your dreams. When you’re stuck within your comfort zone, life becomes stifling—and therefore, very uncomfortable! In a paradoxical way, the easy life includes the experience of discomfort. It is when we try to avoid naturally occurring pain or discomfort that life becomes difficult.” 0 likes
