Probably the most frustrating book I've listened to on Audible. While there were a few reasonably good points, it became a bore listening to long winded stories.

The constant rushing sound of waves in the background, whilst original, was a big mistake. Sometimes it was difficult to actually hear the words over the noise. I couldn't finish the book.

Compared to the Enlightened Gardener (Sydney Banks) this was well below par.

Didn't Get Passed The First Chapter.

I didn't get past the first chapter.
I really don't like writing negative reviews but have to be truthful at the same time.

1. Boring monotone narration was the first turn off.

2. It started to sound like a rehashed version of The Secret and most people know the damage that did to the personal development world.

3. Vision boards and journaling was a dead giveaway as to where this book was going.

4. As a neuroscientist she should know the not everyone can visualise clearly because not everyone is strongly visual. It's always the same with books like this and the author to assume everyone fits into one box.

In conclusion. Whatever success the author has had will be limited to those who fit into the box.



SERIOUSLY!!!

This guy obviously has an over active imagination and delusions of grandure.

Neville would turn in his grave.

A woman crippled with arthritis gets up and runs down the street after watching this charlatan once on TV.

Prosperity by praying on the weak minded is not a good idea. The only thing missing was him or someone walking on water.

Never returned a book on the same day. Must be a miracle. 😁

A miricake I listened to this.

Whilst there was some good pointers, there was nothing particularly new or ground breaking. Certainly not the only self help book you'll ever need as claimed.

I almost shut down, several times as all I could hear was me, me, me, I, I, I, me, me, me. Maybe a bit egotistical bordering on Narssaccistic.

I certainly couldn't rank this book or author in the same realms as Dr David Hawkins, Neville Goddard, Stuart Wilde, Eric Pepin or Emmett Fox.

Maybe OK for some but not a book I will be recommending any time soon.

Not quite sure what the author was thinking?

The book actually started out quite well and sounded very much like there was going to be some good info.

However, when the talk turned to control and manipulating, I started to lose interest. The point when I switched off completely, was when that control and manipulation was to be used on your partner, wife, husband.....

There was quite a bit of emphasis at the start, about not using the dark side or be ethical. So I also found this to be somewhat contradictory.

The perfect story. I loved it!!!

This is a life lesson wrapped in a beautiful story. The Three principles of mind, consciousness and thought are, for want of a better term, thought provoking. Universal may be added to the front of those three words.

A brilliantly told tale that you'll find hard to put down, as I did., listening to the whole book in one session.

The book perfectly illustrates how the most simple concepts can be the most profound with a little contemplation.

Thank you Sydney Banks for sharing this wonderful story.

I can only hope Audible grants my request to have the other books by Sydney Banks in Audible format. I have these booksI on Kindle which are equally amazing, especially The Missing Link.

Let me say, first of all, this book may not be for everyone. Only if you are ready to fully open your mind and heart, will you be able to comprehend the content.

Eric has taken the subject of spirituality to a whole new level. I've never found a more comprehensive explanation of spiritual concepts in any other book I've read. He has taken the almost unexplainable and laid it out for you to digest and understand.

I've seen a few negative reviews for this book and can only guess that the those particular people are just not ready for the awakening the book provides.

I urge you to set aside your prejudices and anything else you've ever thought about being spiritual and listen to or read this book with an open mind.

Thank you Eric for sharing this knowledge and may the source always be with you.

A really good book with a great honest story. Lots of good information, which if given due diligence and honest application can make a difference.
Whilst there is not much particularly new, its great to hear the principles from someone who actually walks their talk.
My only criticism would be, the narration. At times it was painfully slow and it sounded as if he had run a marathon before beginning.
That being said, don't let it put you off the content, which is excellent.

A must for the modern world.

This should be a must read for the 21st century. If this was taught in schools, the younger generation would have a much better chance to make it through the stress of exams.
As a master practioner of NLP, this is a perfect addition of tools to incorporate. I must thank Gregg Braden, as it was him mentioning Heartmath that alerted me to this book.
Seriously thinking about taking a full course in Heartmath on the basis of this book.
It was just that GOOD!
Big Thank you to the Heartmath Institute for sharing this on Audible. 😊

First of I would say that I do generally like Mitch and have enjoyed many of his narrations of other books. However, this book just didn't live up
to expectations. In my opinion it rambled and meandered like a a river through the Amazon rain forest. I actually fell asleep whilst listening. It was not until chapter 12, where it became more like the book description suggested. Even then it was basically a repeat of what is already in Neville books available on Audible. To be honest, it was actually a miracle that I listened that far.
