  • Infinite Possibilities: The Art of Living your Dreams

    Manifesting our dreams isn't about hard work -- it's about belief, expectation and, above all, knowing the truth about our place in the universe. Mike Dooley's manifesto, Infinite Possibilities, affirms that in our world of illusions there is no finite allotment of whatever your heart desires, especially not happiness, and that experiencing more love and new possibilities is limited only by the scope of our ability to imagine and act upon each.

    With his trademark wit, wisdom, and humor, best-selling author and lecturer Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains how we can evolve from the lowest level of consciousness (ego) to the highest (unity). Dr. Dyer starts out with a challenge from A Course in Miracles: "You don't have any problems; you only think you do." He goes on to illustrate how the mind can control both physical and emotional well-being, all one has to do is create healthy, positive molecules and move away from negative thoughts.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I recently found a copy of this book in a used bookstore and loved it! In the past I have never been a Dyer fan. I appreciate his teachings, but generally found them to be based on foundational truths, very simple and rather basic truths. I generally prefer something mind blowing, very deep and thought provoking, such as A Course In Miracles. But I was impressed with this particular book and it inspired and spoke to me. In fact, I found so much comfort and wisdom in it that I decided to purchase what I THOUGHT was the audiobook here on Audible, to take on a road trip and share with my daughter and sister.

    Imagine my surprise to learn that this format is NOT the book at all! It is a live talk he gave prior too the release of the book. I do say that the talk is very good. But I have requested a refund for the first time in my 3 year membership because I received something quite different from what it is presented to be.


    What was most disappointing about Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s story?

    It is NOT an audio book. It is a talk and not what I had thought I purchased.


    Any additional comments?

    It is enjoyable and worthwhile, but for me it was like getting carrot cake when I wanted angel food. It is still good, but not what the menu suggested and I had my taste buds set for something different.

    For so many people, whether your addiction is to a substance or merely to a certain way of thinking or acting, a profound humbling occurs when you realize that your problem is bigger than you are. The terror of realizing, even dimly, that you have no control over a self-destructive pattern of behavior - that as much as you would want to, you simply cannot stop - can mark a crucial turning point in your life. At that point, you go in one of two directions: either way, way down, or way, way up....

    Any additional comments?

    Good information based on common sense, human psychology, conditioning, behaviors and subconscious thoughts and beliefs, but it was really not strong on the ACIM principles. But then it would be hard to write a book about Weight Loss from A Course perspective as the Course will tell you that your body is an illusion. If your body isn't real, then neither is your fat, end of story....LOL...Only a serious course student could appreciate that. Obviously Marianne neeed her book to have more appeal to the masses.
    I feel like Marianne wanted to appeal to the mainstream and it was a bit of a fail. If you have never read or studied ACIM you may like this audio better, but don't be mislead to think it is based much on ACIM at all.

    Something about Garbrielle doesn't feel right for me. I just don't resonate. Do think she would have great appeal for newbie Course members or in the ages of 20-30 . Author did a good job, it just didn't strike me personally. But then, I am quite used to anything having to do with ACIM blowing my MIND and traveling incredible depths of thought, mystery and spritiual principles. I am used to ACIM being like NOTHING else. This audio fell short for me, but I had SUPER high expectations too.

    Nice introudction material for a new student or a younger listener.

    What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment.

I eneded up frustrated because I wanted to get maximum benefit from the fabulous information in this book but was limited without the visual aids. It is VERY good, even just to listen too, and interesting but wish she had of included a PDF. :(

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    What made the experience of listening to Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen the most enjoyable?

    I loved that the story draws from so many avenues and fascinating facts, from cultures, ancient communities, modern times, personalities, the physical body, the mind, and incredible human feats.

    It is about much more than running or the technical aspects of ultra's. It is about the human spirit. I would never get into a ring and box either, but I sure respect the determination and training it takes to be good at it.

    It is just GREAT listen, even if you hate running and could care not less about it!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ending, of course, what is found to be at the crux of it all.


    What about Fred Sanders’s performance did you like?

    EXCELLENT. Very nice narration. Easy to listen too.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There were so many! I found the tribe interesting as I never knew they existed, and the history of the ultra.

    Loving the girl in the mirror isn't about changing how you look, but allowing God to change how you see. Teasi Cannon’s lifelong battle with body image nearly destroyed her. Yet today she feels blessed - not because the size of her lower half has changed but because her perspective has. In her often hilarious, no-nonsense style, Teasi's gut-honest journey and transparent insights will propel every one of us who struggles with...you name it - bad hair or chubby cheeks, skinny arms or wide hips - to realize our value and beauty.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would, and have, recommended it to my friends (girls) because, even if you aren't overwieght, if you live in this society you have most likely taken on some negative body images as society fixates and perpetuates the "perfect" womanly form of super thin. As if being 5'11" and 120 pounds is the only standard of acceptable beauty there is.

    Teasi boldy shares her life, her insecurities, and her pain, but she does it with humor and grace. You will find yourself laughing at times, and other times in tears for the places along her journey that were sad, if not downright horrific. Yet, she has no tone of self pity. She has a humor and a confidence of a conqueror.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Big Bottom Blessing?

    There are so many. Two stand out. One when she asked for God's healing and she felt Him walk with her into her past, to the age of 7 years old, when her Uncle bound, gagged and raped her. Memorable because of the BEAUTIFUL way that God turns this memory around and affirms how much Teasai is loved, adored and how precious she is, and always has been, and that God/Jesus NEVER left her side, not even in that darkest of moments. A tear jerker, if not outright sobs! :) But it really is A FEEL GOOD STORY.

    The second one was when Teasai's husband were vacationing and staying in a motel, he asked her to join him down at the pool one evening. At first she declined, but the second night he practically begged her to join him, so she trudged into the bathroom to put on her "humiliation" suit....hilarity ensues and she describes the process of getting that tight, stretchy, clingy, spandex up her body and over her hips, tugging and pullying, hips gyrating....If you have ever HATED bathing suit season, you will laugh yourself silly.


    What about Pam Ward’s performance did you like?

    I LOVED Pam's performance!! She has great tone, influx, and was totally believable! One of the BEST performances EVER. Pam Ward was amazing and her performance added a lot to my listening pleasure and enjoyment.


    What did you learn from My Big Bottom Blessing that you would use in your daily life?

    We are so precious, so loved, regardless of our size. Quit believing Satan's lies.Lighten up, and know you ARE Beautiful because God made you so!!!

    Not unless they were SERIOUSLY into meditation.

    I believed this book was about Enlightenment, but 6 hours into it, I realize it is about MEDITATION, which to me, is one path to enlightenment and not one that totally interests me at this point. So, I got bored with it.

    I was hoping this was so much more. I was really dissapointed the topic was so narrow.
