I’m on my second listen of this book. It’s terrific.
There’s no super new concepts for me in this book. I’ve read a lot of self-help books and have studied scripture from a charismatic perspective for a good decade now, but this really brought it all together. It’s recorded in a question-and-answer format of interviews with Bob Proctor. He covers a LOT of scripture, which I love, and which helps to counterbalance references to The Secret and what otherwise might be a lot of New Age sounding ideas about the power of words, vibrations, etc. But if you can strip away some of the phrases that might have become associated with a particular set of ideas, there’s gold here.
The concept boils down to the importance of repetition, of meditation, and on engaging your imagination until it sparks hope. Hope becomes faith, and all things are possible for those who believe. These are principles that God baked into the universe, and they are impartial; anyone, regardless of their religious persuasion, can tap into them and make them work. The key is, getting to the point where the image or idea or belief you want makes it from your conscious mind down into your subconscious mind. The only way to do that is through repetition. It’s like brainwashing, only in this case you’re brainwashing yourself, intentionally, and for a positive purpose.
