I've been following some of her advice and I do think it works. Writing thoughts, goals, and dreams down makes it concrete and brings clarity. It opens your brain to seeing opportunities it normally would not notice.
Here is another self-help book that didn't need to be written. The useful information could be summerized in a phamplet, if so much - the cover would be sufficient. Why this writing style is so popular is beyond my comprehension (maybe because people like me keep picking them up...AHHH!!!). The use of filler "stories" are quite uneccessary if the author has something unique or interesting to say, but in most of these books it is just a rehash of the same basic information. If this is the first of this type of book you are reading you may find some of it interesting and useful, but that is being generous, but, if you have read any other self-help book remotely similar, don't even waste your time.
This book is a great companion to "The Secret", "Ask and It is Given" or any additional from the series by Jerry and Esther Hicks. Each chapter takes you through a wide range of scenarios from the most simple goal to life-long aspirations and how you arrive on your path to get there. This book balances between the emotional, psychological and spiritual connection to gain a clear picture with how each element works complimentary to one another.
Tastefully written by a clinical mind, Dr. Henriette Klauser it is a must-read!
This was an okay book. I did like it but I think it could have had a few less stories in it about others perspectives. However, I believe that if the stories were not contained within, you wouldn't have been able to realize some of the information she advised to turn it around to your situation either. It's a good book but not great and I think I could find something better to suggest related to this subject matter that would provide better and more detailed information.
From Library Journal
Here, Klauser (Writing on Both Sides of the Brain; Put Your Heart on Paper) instructs her readers to write down their most extravagant wishes and, merely by the act of recording them, make them come true. She claims that the writings themselves are so powerful that they will influence external circumstances. Eventually, however, she reveals that this wish-writing is neither magical nor miraculous. It requires practitioners not only to write their wishes but also to participate actively in achieving them. Her technique is intended to clarify goals, increase self-confidence, and dispel self-doubt, and she describes how it has dramatically improved her life and the lives of her friends and acquaintances. Her faith in the power of writing is evident in her work; readers who share her faith may benefit from her prescribed course of wish fulfillment. Recommended for all public libraries.
