I have become a huge fan of Marianne's after seeing her at the Mile Hi Church in Denver. I then listened to this audible. FABULOUS. I couldn't wait to listen every chance I got. I highly recommend!
The material is entirely focused on the text "A Course in Miracles". Personally, I've gotten really tired of the whole "Law of Attraction" stuff and I kept getting the sense that what I was gaining from some material was really missing something. Marianne really dives deep in goes into the deeper principles that can be blocking us from really truly manifesting true authentic abundance in our lives by sharing how our ego (our fear) can want to try to control the outcomes when truly we find abundance through our connection with God (the Divine, the Universe, etc.) rather than worldly things.
Yes, there's Christian language in it, but she is using the language as it is used in the text. However, this doesn't mean at all that any of this is "religious". As Marianne explains, the Course is a psychological training to help us create lives of peace rather than a theological doctrine. If you're able to go beyond the language use and really listen to the underlying message, you're definitely in for a treat!
I'll likely be listening to this again in the future for reference!
Not relevant to this, as it is in the more personal growth genre.
We are to be in the world, but not of the world. We are spiritual beings living a human, worldly experience -- not beings of the world wanting to have a spiritual experience.
Avid reader, freelance writer, world traveler, animal lover. I love sharing my opinions about the books I read.
I bought this thinking it was about the law of attraction and manifesting abundance but it's only a church service basically. I don't believe in organized religion anymore than this wasn't of any use to me at all. I could listen to a Sunday service on the radio or TV for free and this is all this was.
all of it
Marianne speaks from her heart and her hearts passion is God!
I have listened time and time again!
I have nothing against religion, but not only does this promote religious intolerant (what "others" are doing wrong), but it is so heavily into christian prayers that it was a complete turn off.
Audio is terrible This is the second time I have purchased this audiobook and the sound of her voice is so bad I can't even listen to it. Disappointing and a waste of my hard earned money !!
Extremely religious people!
You have to be accepting of God to get any benefit.
Not for me! I'm turned off completely when there is no room provided for those of us who don't believe in the existence of such an entity!
