When I was introduced to this book in June, 1999, at was at a real crossroads in my life, in terms of business and what I wanted to pursue that would be fulfilling. A mentor of mine suggested the book to me as a way of sorting through what I wanted and "where" I was.
It was about 8:30pm, and I had small children. In their pajamas, I loaded them in the car and we raced to Barnes and Noble before it closed so I could start my new journey THAT NIGHT!
It truly changed my thoughts, my philosophy and my life. I became clear on my business direction and what I wanted to pursue in my life. I also became clear on setting my focus and attracting what I wanted.
Here are some thoughts into those 9 Principles. See if anything speaks to you and if so, I highly recommend you get the book -
Principle #1 - Becoming Aware of Your Highest Self - Are the decisions and actions in your life controlled by your ego? Do you have an ever-present need to defend yourself?
Principle #2 - Trusting Yourself is Trusting the Wisdom That Created You - Do you inherently trust yourself and your decisions? Are you weighed down with troubles or unresolved issues in your life?
Principle #3 - You Are Not an organism An Environment, You Are an Environorganism - Do you feel out of touch with your environment? Are your days more often out of sync than in?
Principle #4 - You Can Attract to Yourself What You Desire - Do you have limits in your life that
Principle #5 - Honoring Your Worthiness to Receive - Do you love what you do, and do what you love, in life? Are you constrained by feelings of unworthiness?
Principle #6 - Connecting to the Divine Source With Unconditional Love - Is your day filled with high energy and the feeling that "everything is going my way"? Or do you experience frustration and anger?
Principle #7 - Meditating to the Sound of Creation - How would your life change after learning to attract what you want - peace or love, job advancement or monetary fortune?
Principle #8 - Patiently Detach From the Outcome - Do you believe that the universe operates randomly? Are you impatient waiting for good things to happen?
Principle #9 - Reacting to Your Manifestations With Gratitude and Generosity - Do you complain, find fault or take for granted more often than you appreciate your life?
I highly encourage you to read the book and delve more deeply into each of these principles. I recommend studying just one principle for a week, or two, or even a month!
