This is the best explanation so far of the subconscious mind - and the induction techniques are quick and work well. Very useful.
As the author says, he has done a lot of research, reading, and practicing of other people's methods and has distilled the best of what he's learned into one book.
The techniques here are useful for many interests, not just to program our subconscious, but this would be very handy for people interested in remote viewing or out of body experiences. Or, for people interested in improving their athletic performance, studying, work, confidence, memory . . . there are all kinds of applications for this.
I have bought other Audible books related to meditation, the brain, and consciousness, and while I do appreciate them and the other author's works, this one book would have saved me a lot of time since it just gets to the point and gets the job done.
The explanations make it so understandable and possible and real too.
Author Amy Alkon has done her homework by reading and referencing a number of books or studies on human behavior, the brain, social studies and psychology and that makes this book an intelligent observation on human beings today.
We live in a very different society than a generation ago, and thus there is need for a re-frame of what is considered to be considerate or inconsiderate behavior. With humor, directness, and great examples this book covers behaviors we experience today and some optional responses.
Amy Alkon covers many relevant topics, from what is to be done about cell phones, tipping, parking, or how to respond to invitations by email. That was expected and I learned more than I thought I would. What I didn't expect, and found helpful were when Amy wrote about how to best help people. How to respond when a someone says they have cancer. How friends can network to help a friend. How even though we can not give a homeless person "three hots and a cot" we can still do something small to make their day better.
Funny throughout, this is a guidebook for life where big cities and technology have both brought people together and isolated them. Compassion, respect, intelligence, and at times courage to do what it takes to correct selfish and inconsiderate behavior are illustrated throughout.
This would be an excellent book to be assigned reading in school to help young people have better life skills. And for people who remember phones that had a spinning disk on front to dial numbers, this book is a great way to keep up.
Not certain about this book. Yes, it clearly gives the basic formula to correctly Affirm. But, is the part where so much time is spent on dealing with negative counter thoughts really helpful? Or is it just schtick to give a twist to an idea with so many other books on the market that something different needed to be added to sell a book? Not sure.
Most of the Law of Attraction authors seem to use affirmations to replace beliefs. The main difference with this book is that it also adds in how to diminish and eliminate negative self-defeating beliefs that run counter to or weaken the new Affirmation.
Of course, it's simpler to just replace beliefs (although not easy) and it takes more work to use the method here where there's a technique that is like you are arguing with yourself until the negative belief gets weakened and fades.
There are good examples of the method used to eliminate, or weaken the counters against the new affirmation.
This book may prove useful to people who want to actively deal with resistance.
