Publisher's Summary

Becoming Magic is book one of a complete course in becoming creator of your own exceptional life. In this book, I outline the exact steps which enabled me to move my own life from one of poverty and drudgery, to one of previously unimaginable wealth, purpose and joy. But Magic? I do hope you are joking! That's what I would have said, five or ten years ago. I once despised all things 'New-Age'; all these spiritual types and their airy-fairy views, their bad science and their irrational beliefs. I had read The Secret and all the Law of Attraction greats, Wallace Wattles, Anthony Robbins, Rhonda Byrne, Napoleon Hill, Esther Hicks and Wayne Dyer. But no matter how closely I followed their instructions for manifesting money, love or happiness, I couldn't make it work. It was only when I recognised, accepted and finally embraced that what I was doing was actually some kind of Magic that suddenly things began to fall into place. Once I realised that the power came from within me, it was as if the light had suddenly been switched on. I learned how to manifest love and money, but I also learned how to be happy, truly happy. If you're jaded by the whole New Age idea of The Laws of Attraction, have become bored by their failure to deliver this book is for you. It is my intention to lead you by the hand through a marvellous journey of wonder and adventure, teaching you how to change your life, one step at a time.

    "Unrealistic for most people"
    What made the experience of listening to Becoming Magic the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy listening to different approaches to using law of attraction, and this author has obviously mastered her own way.
    I enjoyed some of the unique methods taught, which were fun to do.


    Has Becoming Magic put you off other books in this genre?

    No, I prefer other L of A authors


    How could the performance have been better?

    Totally.

    The narrator sounded like she was reading a story to 5 year olds, not delivering a powerful self help book to adults.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Snap back was interesting


    Any additional comments?

    I have now listened to all 3 Magic books. I didn't like the arrogance of the author in her scathing opinion of other L of A authors, however, this was obviously from her own frustrations and realisation of her own effective approach.

    About her approach. It is probably most useful for people who are largely sorted financially and emotionally and just want a more fun and interesting life.

    For anyone who is in a desperate situation in need of real guidance for powerful and realistic help today, I don't recommend this book.

    Her process is for those who aren't in a hurry, and have little to lose 'giving it a go'

    For example, she suggests you take your focus on what you don't want and to 'trust' the Universe will bring what you need and to get on with other things. Try telling that to someone with the bailiffs knocking at their door. Unrealistic.

    A good book though and glad I listened to all 3

    "Refreshing Honesty"

    I have read all the recommended books Think and Grow Rich, The Attractor Factor, The Law of Attraction etc etc etc. I did as I was told....
    Something was missing, it was sort of happening but my gut feeling was telling me that something was missing in me. Why couldn't I get it right. Why did sometimes it go so very wrong? They make it sound as is we should all just be able to just do it.
    So back I went to Amazon, no more books to read or listen to that said anything different. It had to be me. I have had experience of NLP in the past with great results so I started down that road again. Did I have limiting beliefs that were holding me back? I made an appointment in 3 days time. Meanwhile I thought why not listen to these Magic books, they are cheap and something to listen to for the next couple of days. I downloaded all three!!!! WOW I was not expecting that.....
    They make sense of all the previous books. Once I had listened to Becoming Magic I understood completely what I needed to do first, and that also included not listening to Doing Magic. I felt normal and capable of starting the process with practical doable guidance. Whether you are an old hand at this or a complete beginner it makes no difference this first book is a little treasure. The narrator has a beautiful clear voice which is easy and a pleasure to listen to. This book puts the common sense back into this thing we are all able to do. It answered all of my questions. Sometimes you get more than you pay for!!

    "Mundane"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you have never thought about mindfulness, laws of attraction or building your self-worth before this might be of some use. As it stands it was a vague echo of other ideas constantly telling you what it was going to tell you and not really getting to the point.


    What could Genevieve Davis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Genevieve Davis voice was clear, calm and well paced but could not make up for the disappointing content.


    Any additional comments?

    If all three books were put into one it might have worked. Book 1 did not have enough substance for me to order the next books.

    "Change the way you think."

    Even if you don't believe in "Magic" as it's used in this book, it can still help you change the way you think, and help to get your mind right.

    "I feel so positive after listening to this book. "

    I found the author to be honest and managed expectation clearly. The book was long enough to absorb and not so long that you would become bored.

    If anyone asked me for a recommendation on this subject, I would have no hesitation in suggesting Genevive Davis and her books.

    Now I am off to prepare myself, as book one has suggested and look forward to reading book two - 'Doing Magic', once I am sure I am ready to do so!

    Where does Becoming Magic rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    From my entire library, this series is the one I fell in love it!
    I think this says it all.

    "Excellent book"

    I love the way this book is written. Having followed the Law of Attraction for many years, this book made it all fit into place in very easy steps. It's as though the author was describing my life. Now to read the next one

    "Pleasant listening, easy to follow"

    Good foundation book, takes a little while to get to the point in parts - and although I understand the point of separating vol 1 and 2 explained it does feel like this is slightly 'padded out' with waffle - strip that back though and there is some good solid principals / foundations 👍🏻
    Narrator would be suited better to children's books but pleasant none the less
    Good on the whole

    "with patience u get to the content"

    In the end I enjoyed the last few chapters. The first 7 chapters were literally about nothing. They were all just lead up about what the author was going to tell you. It was a little frustrating and I almost gave up. SERIOUSLY I bought another book and was about to switch when I decided to give it one more chapter. AND yes, she finally got to it. It was interesting and pleasant and original. I'm on the fence about buying the next book. I think ultimately I'll learn something but is it worth the frustration?

    "My New Favorite -- Quick and Simple"
    What did you love best about Becoming Magic?

    A lot of the reviews were concerned that she took a while to get to the "what to do" part.

    However, I've been in the reality creation genre for about 3 years now, and a lot of the concerns I have had with the material from other authors, are exactly what she addresses. So I did appreciate the first half, and her explaining the setbacks that a lot of people have.

    I also appreciated that the author attempts to establish credibility with the readers. She says that she donates all of her profits from these books to charity.

    I REALLY appreciated her description of "snapbacks," as I just had one, and it's exactly what led me to this book.

    Finally, I also liked that this was a short, and her techniques are very simple.

    In summary, I am very excited to get going on the exercises, as you don't practice magic, you ARE magic.

    "Refreshingly down to earth"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am a newbie to this LoA and manifestation stuff, and have been reading a variety of self-proclaimed experts on it. This is the only one that sounds like the real deal, not least because it is a fraction of the cost of online courses and programs. The author does spend what seems to be an inordinate amount of time saying what her book isn't, and I eventually wondered if she would tell me what her book was. It gets better and clearer after the first read/listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    What does Fiona Hardingham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a clear, crisp reading style that is perfect for this book. She reads each word as if it matters.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    If you aren't working to change something in your life that you don't like, you shouldn't think about it at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't rush to get the second volume after getting this one. There is plenty of useful information in here. I have both of her audiobooks and all three of the books in the series, but this is the one that I keep coming back to. (When will volume 3 be recorded? I want it!)

    "Great advice but logically flawed"
    Any additional comments?

    If you're a critical thinker, you may find yourself slightly annoyed by this audiobook. However, her advice to stop being negative and her tactics on how to do that are valuable. I would have given this less stars but for the fact that despite how long it took her to get to the point, it's actually valuable advice. As someone who knows quite a bit about the law of attraction, it was refreshing to hear someone point out how duality of mind can get in the way (if you are visualizing wanting things, you're also subconsciously visualizing your lack of them). Anyway, I didn't hate it, but it could have been reduced to a half our.

    A short book which gives a preview of the author's point of view of the law of attraction which it's called magic, really pissed me off that a very not profound knowledge is revealed with the promise of other more advanced books. Information presented is not important and I have no intention of buying more books in other words they want you to keep buying they crappy series. No way

    "The best book on The Law of Attraction I've read"

    I've read the Kindle version several times and I purchased this audiobook for another way to quickly review the material (and to hopefully get other members of my household to read/listen to it as well). The reader's pace and tone are easy to follow and set the mood for the topic.

    The principles the author present make sense to me. I most like how she explains why other Law of Attraction methods haven't worked for me and emphasizes what I should be doing to improve my own attitude and beliefs.

    I anticipate listening to this book again and again.

    "waste of paper and audio tape"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    That she actually teach something instead of talk about what she is going to teach you in other books ..


    What was most disappointing about Genevieve Davis’s story?

    She talks consistantly about what she is going to teach you rather than get down to business.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Fiona Hardingham?

    her voice was nice ..The book was a waste


    What character would you cut from Becoming Magic?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    I would go to purchase new psycho cybernetics which is a great book if you havent already read it.
