I knew this book would be great, but I have to admit I was a little scared that it might be too much of the same and not enough to really help me go further. I am happy to report that The Power did not disappoint! I always wonder how writers pull off books in a series in which you can read one and not the other but again, Byrne hit the bulls eye by giving us a book that serves as either companion or primer. Having said that, I am glad I read The Secret first. It has given me quite a while to ruminate and practice. And then now, just when I’m ready for more, more arrives. There’s the Law of Attraction for ya. Haha.
But really, I have noticed a lot about the concept of The Power cropping up in my life, and then the book affirmed what I’ve been experiencing and made it so abundantly clear that my feelings are true instincts that should not be ignored. I don’t want to rewrite the book here or give away the crux of it; I’ll let you discover that on your own if you so desire. But suffice it to say that it is absolutely simple and yet completely profound. I would go so far as to say it is simpler even than The Secret and still more profound.
Basically, for anyone who read The Secret and thought, “That’s nice but I don’t get it; I haven’t been able to manifest anything because I’m not sure where to start…” this really adds the extra that’s needed to understand and see the whole picture. If you’re anything like me, you ask “Why?” a lot and the second book delivers a clear answer- the first volume laid it out there that this Law of Attraction business works without fail, but the second delves much deeper into the why and the how and why it is positively worth it to understand it.
It applies to everything and so all topics are covered- personal growth & happiness, success, money, relationships… I especially appreciated the money section- short and sweet and powerful! I feel like I know exactly what I need to do now- it’s not always easy, but with practice it will become second nature. And another awesome thing is that the more it works, the more it works! You’ll see what I mean- your love, happiness, growth and success become exponentially bigger and better. What’s the opposite of a vicious circle? I’m going to coin it… a delicious cycle! I’m so motivated to start putting this principle fully into action and see where my ambition can take me.
If you have a chance to pick up The Power, or are a big fan of The Secret, be sure to leave a comment and share your experience with it! They are both chock full of fantastic quotes and beautiful graphics. I think I like The Power better! There, I said it. I hope you love it too!
