Summary

In this inspirational work, best-selling author and lecturer Wayne W. Dyer shows you how to restore balance in your life by offering nine principles for realigning your thoughts so that they correspond to your highest desires. Imagine a balance scale with one end weighted down to the ground, and the other end—featuring the objects of your desires—sticking up precariously in the air. This scale is a measurement of your thoughts. To restore the same balance that characterizes everything in our universe, you have to take up the weighty thoughts so that they match up to your desires. The seasons reflect the overall harmony of life. For example, winter passes and the blossoms emerge. This is balanced by a need to have the trees rest, so autumn arrives on time and helps the trees ready themselves for another period of repose.

This book is dedicated to the idea that we’re a vital component of this creative process and have within ourselves the wherewithal to create all that we want if we recognize and revise out-of-balance thoughts.

Insightful and Inspiring

I admire Wayne Dyer. This book is full of wisdom. The narration seemed too fast so I did need to set to a slower pace. Recommend.

Another wonderful Wayne Dyer book

Beautifully narrated by the author himself which as with all his books makes it seem nexus speaking directly to you. Full of practical advice on ways to live your life to be in balance and explanations why you may not be already.

I recommend this but the narration is a bit fast

This is a good book, and I enjoyed listening to it, but I wish Wayne's speaking was slower. Many of his audio books are spoken at a more comfortable pace than this one, so this is unusual. It's good but a bit rushed. Perhaps he was timed when he read it.

Being in Balance

i love how dyer explains the situation and I love the quotes. Due to my depression, I was recommended by psychiatrist to listen to WD and get to know about the Higher Power, but this Higher Power not the one of the Bible.

OMG! I FINALLY PUT SMOKING BEHIND ME!!!

If you could sum up Being In Balance in three words, what would they be?

It Really Works!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Wayne Dyer was the only character but the real topic was "me".

Which character – as performed by Wayne W. Dyer – was your favorite?

These questions are not targeting what I wanted to share about my experience with this book. I'm so sorry. :)

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Being in Balance!

Any additional comments?

Listening to Wayne's first hand account of where he's been and where he's at caused me to see right away that his messge and his experience is real. It came at a time where I was truly needing a deeper connection to my-self to find my inner truths. To live happy, clean, free of worry or monkeys on my back.

I FINALLY ~ after 34 years of smoking cigarettes ~ put them down to rest!!! It was UNBELIEVABLE even to me - the fact that I didn't even have an urge!! Then it just so happened that I caught a real bad flu abuot two weeks into it and that just shut it tight for me and kept me on board long enough not to relapse. So ALL credit to the Universe/God for listening and responding to my prayer and putting this particular audible information in my ears at the time that I asked for it and thank you even for the flu! I am FREE of any burdens that I brought on myself thanks to Being In Balance! When I tell you, that to me, this is a REAL MIRACLE ... NOT TO EVEN HAVE AN URGE ... NO JONES! WAAAOOOWWW!!! I mean it so very sincerely!!!

The message he shares is one of total EMPOWERMENT. That you really feel that YOU CAN AND WILL DO IT ... whatever it is that's got you weighed down, you can LET IT TO REST! LET IT GO! Oh if you only knew - how hard it's been for me over the years and how much I've suffered in fear of dying an agonizing death because of my own helplessness in not being able to stop smoking since I was 15 years old!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wonderfl

So thought provoking. Simple language that explains how we're out of balance and how to find and maintain the balance between the physical self and the spirit from which we originate and are. Wayne Dyer's voice is so relaxing and clear reading this book. I sincerely recommend " Being in Balance".
