The Power by Rhonda Byrne

As the title depicts, this is going to be yet another book review! Yay:) Come New Year 2011 and I'm still in the reading mood, Alhamdulillah.. I bought 'The Power by Rhonda Byrne' on 24 December 2010. Attracted by the cover (and the 30% discount and on it!), I did a flip through and  the first few words caught me right at the heart...

"You are meant to have an amazing life!"

says Rhonda Byrne.

"You are meant to be fulfilling your dreams.."
I absolutely love the positivity she was putting through there and immediately bought a copy. Dr. Muhaya on a couple of weeks ago talked about how one should spend at least an hour a day digesting motivational materials. So this is me following her advice, picking up a totally inspiring, love, love.. I do hope I'll get to attend Dr. Muhaya's workshop, "Kuasa Minda: Ke Arah Sikap Yang Positif"(the power of the mind: towards a positive attitude). I would love to be under her tutelage and have her as one of  my life coaches. She sounds phenomenal! Did I mention she's an ophthalmologist? To undergo LASIK is another one on my wish-list:)!

Now back to the book under scrutiny! 'The Power', in a way to me is similar to 'The Secret'. While the former focuses on the Law of Attraction, 'The Power' zooms in on the power of LOVE.. And love is actually the law of attraction..Yes, love. Love makes the world go round. Love is the essence of living. Love conquers all!

To be able to live the amazing life we all dream about, it is essential that we learn how to fully utilise the attractive force of love. Because like attract likes and what we give, we receive. So give good to receive goodness. It all totally makes sense.

If everyday in our lives, we focus on the positive, it is this positive part of our thinking that will materialize. Therefore, we have to think and talk about what we love: all the good news and the things that went well in our day. And next, we have to feel good about it. Inject positive feelings towards it. Feelings of love, gratitude, joy, passion, excitement, enthusiasm, satisfaction, hope and many more. Increase the frequency of these emotions to benefit even more from it.

According to Byrne,

"....Every decision you make in your life is based on how you feel.."

What we want in our lives, we want it because it makes us feel good. To receive the good, we need to have good feelings. Give love through good feelings.

"You have to be happy first, and give happiness, to receive happy things!"

The next few part of the book talks about The Creation Process. It takes you through a few simple steps to harness the force of love in every areas of your life - IMAGINE, FEEL, RECEIVE.

Yes, it all starts with the visualization process.  This may be nothing new to some of us. Even major athletes use this visualisation technique before taking part in an event. This envisioning of the whole process and the victorious ending. It is said that the mind cannot tell the difference between what is imagined and what is real. This is what we have to use to our advantage. But how many of us have done it?

I love how Byrne describes that there is nothing too big for the law of attraction. We have to think of the things that we want and desire in life, no matter how big, to be just the size of a dot. It's achievable! And this is as far as I'm going to reveal. Especially, since I haven't finished reading the book whole yet.

But one thing's for sure.. Getting your mind to focus on what you love, really brightens the day..when you think happy thoughts and feel it through positive emotions, your day just turns out so much better. You feel more relaxed, at ease, and you'll find that others respond to you better and you just learn to enjoy the moment. Love, love, love!!
