Review of the Book - The Magic, by Rhonda Byrne
☆҉‿ I read The Magic in January 2013. It is written by Rhonda Byrne – the author of the Best Selling Book The Secret, A very powerful self help book (19 Million copies sold worldwide) which I read in August 2012. However, The Magic is much deeper and even more powerful.
The Magic is all about Gratitude.
“A Thankful heart, hath a Continual feast.” – W J Cameron
I thought I had a heart of gratitude, until I read the Magic. It’s principle is based on a verse in the Bible. Book of Matthew. “Whoever has (gratitude) will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have (gratitude) even, what he has will be taken away."
The book is like a workbook. It has 28 Chapters – you can read a chapter a day if you want and it covers all aspects of life..
- Relationships - being grateful for everyone who has made a significant difference in your life. It could be your partner, friend, a good boss, a stranger – but you have to think as far back as when you were young.
- Finance – it gives an exercise where you are to be grateful for every salary you have had since you started work in life and every basic thing your parents provided, even down to toys and holidays you went on.
- Turning Negatives around - Whatever has gone wrong in the day, just be peaceful and give gratitude in advance for a Maginificent outcome. Expect it to be so.
(That's just a summary of 3 Chapters)
•✫'★ ~ "What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it. Opportunities, relationships, even money flowed my way when I learned to be grateful no matter what happened in my life." ~ Oprah Winfrey
Most important of all, the Magic encourages people to keep a daily gratitude Journal and write 10 things they are grateful for, that happened during the day.
I saw a lot of positive differences in my life and I still keep the practice of a gratitude Journal. Once in a while I will refresh myself on certain chapters. It’s a book that will:
a) Heal your heart of any hurt and let go.
b) Reveal how powerful simply giving gratitude is.
c) Help you to confront any negative situations with a positive attitude.
d) Will open the door for good opportunities and good things to find you and more, as your life circumstances are different from mine.
It’s £8.99 but the wisdom you get from it is Priceless – 5 Star. To preview the book, Click Here
