The Dynamic Laws of Prayer
by Catherine Ponder

“Pray and Grow Rich” was the first book by Catherine Ponder that I ever read. When I decided to review it, I thought that it was out of print when I couldn’t find it under that name. I was upset, because I knew how valuable the information was. But then I was relieved to find it under the title, “The Dynamic Laws of Prayer.” The second title more closely describes what the book is about.

Prayer helps bring us closer to the God within, contact Its power and releases that energy into our lives. Rev. Ponder dispels the notion that prayer is passive and pleading with a far off deity. In this book, she describes the many different ways we can pray and that prayer is individual. By tackling the difficult issues of what to do when prayer isn’t immediately answered, she assures us that it’s to help us grow into the result.

The information goes deeply into how to approach the power within you and express it, even if there are blocks in the way. This book addresses the use of affirmations, meditation in the silence, what to do to eliminate unwanted conditions, and much, much more. As with all of her books, it is filled with affirmations. If you want to change your life, this book will give you the tools to do so.

Affirmation:
“The Universe fills my being at all times. It provides me with everything necessary for the complete expression of a life of joy, harmony, health and abundance. I welcome all the good of the Universe.”
Sparks of Insight

Commentary:
The Universe, Infinite or whatever name you use for God is all good. It’s the substance that makes up your life. But it’s like a banquet. You have to reach out, accept, put the food on your plate and eat it. You can’t be force-fed the good of life. When you begin to recognize that you are being provided everything you need, then you’re beginning to accept Life’s bounty.

Stake Your Claim: Exploring the Gold Mine Within
By Emmet Fox

This book was the first one by this author that I ever read. The practical, spiritual advice from it made him one of my favorite metaphysical authors. Dr. Fox was a well-known spiritual teacher and his insight is timeless.

The title of the book refers to staking your claim to the good that you want in your life. Short, to the point essays about peace, prosperity, empowerment and much more form the chapters of this book. Each essay addresses a different subject, and stands alone in its wisdom.

The counsel in this book will uplift your thoughts, help you gain a more positive, spiritual outlook on what ever difficulty you might be experiencing, and help you live a richer, fuller life. Because of the short essays, this is the perfect book to read in the morning to get the day started right, just before going to sleep, or at any other time when you only have a few minutes to spare.

Sparks of Insight“There is a power for good in the Universe, and I am a part of it. Good is present and active in all of my affairs. I open my mind and heart to allow this good to flow through me, to prosper and harmonize every circumstance in my life.”

The only thing that holds back the good of the Universe is your thought. You either don’t believe it can happen, focus on the negative, or you hold onto negative thoughts about yourself and others. Once the way is open, good flows naturally through you and your life. As you affirm that you are willing to open to it, you begin to dissolve the impediments because you’ve changed your focus. And you experience more joy, harmony and abundance in your life.

Sparks of InsightWhenever you have a problem, you probably resist it, which is a natural response. But by doing so, you feed it attention and energy. “Energy flows where attention goes,” so you’re instructing the Law of Attraction to increase what you don’t want. But every problem has a solution hidden within it. You simply need to let go of your resistance and look at it differently. What would the solution result in? Greater health, prosperity, or harmony? Switch your attention to the solution. Not how it would come about, but the outcome. This stimulates your creative mind to find not only a solution but the gift hidden within your challenge.

Sparks of InsightAre you limiting your acceptance of good? If so, you’re restricting the flow of God/Universe in your life. You are a part of the Universe, as an individualized expression of It. And the Universe wants more good for Itself, since that’s the way it expresses Itself. Whatever good you desire is also a part of the Universe. So desiring more good, whether it’s prosperity, health, or peace in your life, means that you’re wanting to experience more of God/the Universe. Open your mind and heart to allowing more of the Universe, or good, coming into your life.

Sparks of Insight“I allow Universal knowledge to flow into my mind and heart. I release outmoded attitudes and negative beliefs. I commit myself to allow the Light of Spirit to flood into my being and lead me into a greater life.”

You are always being guided by the Universe. When you open your mind to it, you’ll hear that still, small voice. All it takes is your willingness. Don’t try to force it, however. That will close off the channel. But as you align yourself with Its qualities of love and harmony, you’ll reap the benefits in peace and abundance.

Creating Money: Attracting Abundance
by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer

If you are wanting more abundance, success or to find your life’s work, this book will help you. Abundance, peace and joy is your natural state. By discovering any resistance within yourself, focusing on changing your beliefs, and using the exercises and affirmations in this book, you’ll begin to expand into the abundance that is inherently yours.

Almost every page has an affirmation that reinforces the subject of that section. Just about every chapter has a meditation or exercise that helps in self-discovery, drawing to you what you want, or expanding your concepts.

Beginning with the most basic concept that you are your abundance, it takes you through releasing any blocks to it, addresses the issue of trust and belief in yourself.

It’s one of the most comprehensive books on abundance that I’ve read. You learn that you can create anything that you want to. If you want more abundance in your life, then I highly recommend that you get this book for your personal library.

The Aladdin Factor
by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen

Learning to ask for what we want is a lesson that most of us need to address. This book helps to identify most of the difficulties we have in asking. Using an allegory concerning Aladdin and his lamp, the authors’ guide you past the obstacles to asking.

They cover areas such as low self-esteem, discovering what to ask for, getting beyond the fear, and even how to ask. There are chapters on where or who to ask for what you want, such as at home, work, or the Universe.

Inspirational stories and testimonials of people climbing out on a limb and asking for what they want fill this book. There are examples of people successfully asking for things I never would have even tried.

This is a book well worth re-reading every year to remind me of the lessons it contains. It stretches the mind to ask for and realize you can accept more of the good of the Universe.

The Miracle of Mind Dynamics: Use Your Subconscious Mind to Obtain Complete Control Over Your Destiny
Joseph Murphy

I am a fan of Joseph Murphy and his writings, and have reviewed a couple of his other books before. This one is full of Universal principals and wisdom for every aspect of life. Examining the subjects of health, life and death, luck and good fortune, prayer, and much more, he illustrates each one with an example in someone’s life.

He explains spiritual principles in very basic ways, so that every person who reads this can put them to use in their lives immediately. He touches on the metaphysical perspective of many familiar Biblical and spiritual ideas, such as karma and God’s will.

Although this book doesn’t have quite as many affirmations as some of his other books have, it gives specific instructions on how to use the power of the mind to improve one’s life. A mine of information on how the Universe works and our place in it, it’s a must-have for anyone who yearns to understand more about their relationship to Spirit and Its good.
