What do you really want to achieve? And aren’t you ready to stop thinking about it and start enjoying its end result?  Consider this book as a primer, an introduction to uncovering and working with the Science of your Mind to achieve all those wishes and wants in your life that you never thought possible. In this primer, Diane shares with you what she personally knows works.  When Bob Proctor became her 2nd client on her 1st day of opening her own writing business, she embarked on a 27-year extraordinary journey of being mentored by the top Prosperity Teacher of the century.

As A Man Thinketh

Even more important in modern times with a myriad of forces distracting us from achieving a fulfilled life, As a Man Thinketh reveals the hidden powers and possibilities within yourself by expounding on the importance of thought. Your own thoughts shape your character, circumstance, and destiny, and the control of your own thoughts liberates us from undesirable experiences. In our never-ending pilgrimage to a deeper understanding of life, there is no better prescription than the mastery over the mind.  An inspiration to millions, Allen’s work has been celebrated for its ease of understanding yet profound in its wisdom.

Feeling is the Secret

Knowledge of the law of consciousness and the method of operating this law will enable you to accomplish all you desire in life. – The mechanism of creation is hidden in the very depth of the subconscious, the female aspect or womb of creation. The subconscious transcends reason and is independent of induction. It contemplates a feeling as a fact existing within itself and on this assumption proceeds to give expression to it. The creative process begins with an idea and its cycle runs its course as a feeling and ends in a volition to act. Ideas are impressed on the subconscious through the medium of feeling. No idea can be impressed on the subconscious until it is felt, once felt be it good, bad or indifferent it must be expressed.

The Astonishing Power of Emotions

This leading-edge book by Esther and Jerry Hicks, who present the teachings of Abraham, the loving group consciousness from the non-physical dimension will help you understand and master the emotions that you’ve been experiencing all of your life.  Instead of the out-of-control, knee-jerk reactions that most people have to their ever-changing life experience, this motivational work will put those responses into a broader context. You’ll come to understand what emotions are and how to effectively utilize your new awareness of them.

The Power of Awareness

A mainstay in my library and something from which I read on a weekly basis, I think this is Neville’s most powerful and intriguing work on how to use the manifesting powers of your mind. Here, Neville presents a concise, unforgettable statement of the science of mind philosophy (even before it was a named entity) in that the world around you is a picture in your mind’s eye, created by your thinking, and amenable to change by altering your thoughts and feelings. (For me, “The Effortless Way” chapter is one I read weekly. I know you’ll enjoy it, too.)

Money is God in Action

This book is the tiniest book ever, but does it pack a punch! In this wonderful little book, Dr. Barker not only discusses MONEY but discusses the taboo many of us might have about how money and God get along. Even if you’re progressing beautifully along in your prosperity path, this short read (which I read repeatedly) helps you dig out and cast off core root beliefs you may have about money, lack and limitation. Remove these forever and open your mind to the unlimited abundance of the Universe!

Money and the Law of Attraction

Here, Abraham/Esther Hicks are at their best as they explain that the two subjects most chronically affected by the powerful Law of Attraction are financial and physical well-being. When you cannot rise above one or both of these issues in your world, you will likely struggle with many more aspects of your life, too. Here, with many real life Q-and-A sessions and a plethora of abundance minded exercises, you will find yourself deliberately aligning yourself with one of the most powerful laws of the Universe – The Law of Attraction – so that it works IN your behalf instead of against you.

How To Solve All Your Money Problems Forever

Victor Boc’s hugely successful self-published book gives you the means to secure a continual flow of money into your life. People worry entirely too much about money. And the worry is always there, ever present. Now, you can eliminate all that wasted energy from your life. You will discover “the two-prong method,” the most powerful money-management system ever devised. This book exposes the underlying laws that govern the flow of money. Unlike books that contain general guidelines and motivational pep-talks, this book gives you instructions. It shows you, step-by-step, exactly what to do and how to go about it. If you ever read just one money-oriented book in your entire life, this should be the one. You will never need another.

Your Invisible Power

Genevieve Behrand was Thomas Troward’s ONLY apprentice. Probably similar to my decades-long apprenticeship with Bob, Genevieve was able to offer a slightly different angle to prosperity thinking, manifestation and dream achievement through the eyes of an apprentice actually doing the work prescribed by Troward. The other gift of this book is this: You’ve probably heard me say that Genevieve was a true godsend to all of us as she is able to create a more accessible entry to the depths of Troward’s mind (and writing). This is a great way to wade into the works of Troward without being rolled by the wave, so to speak.

Working With The Law

In this rare book, Raymond Holliwell focuses on the SECONDARY laws of the universe, each of which dovetails from the seven primary laws of the universe. Holliwell wrote this book in this way to better connect us and our thinking with the flow of these universal laws. Remember, the law is always at work- it’s like electricity. It’s always in flow in and around our lives. How we choose to work with that electricity is our decision – we can shut ourselves off from it, we can fight against it and find ourselves in for a “shock,” or we can choose to live in the warmth and light it can bring to our lives. Here is where the rubber hits the road. Here is where we learn to truly learn to work with the laws.

The Science of Getting Rich

When Bob Proctor began working with Earl Nightingale and Lloyd Conant, Lloyd suggested that Bob read this foundational work by Wattles, referring to it as “the little green book.” Though it might be “little” in size, this simply written book delivers a powerful message in our ability to literally engage with “the thinking stuff” to create whatever it is we wish for our lives. Bob created and taught this course for years, and Rhonda Byrne purchased that very same course, fashioning a “magical” life as a result. She ultimately created “The Secret” movie about the power of Law of Attraction as explained so eloquently in this seminal Wattles work.

The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power

Years ago, Bob Proctor told me to buy this book as it was one of his all-time favorites. I bought it and I put it on my bookshelf. My buddy, Tommy Collier, did the same a few years later when Bob told him to buy it. A couple months ago, we finally picked this book up for our mornings reading together, and discovered that this book is nothing short of extraordinary. As Howard notes, “You cannot escape prison if you don’t know you’re in one.” Well, here’s how you get OUT. Here’s how we drop that limited view in favor of our unlimited capacity. This deserves multiple, repeated readings, for sure. And, yes, now I know why this was one of Bob’s all-time favorites.

Putting the Prosperity Idea to Work

Prosperity is a state of Consciousness, and anyone who has the Consciousness will demonstrate prosperity no matter where he is. It is not the job or business that makes a man prosperous but what he brings to it. The whole matter turns on Consciousness; without the Consciousness of success and prosperity, the finest business produces very little.The Law of Giving and Receiving (which is the Law of Prosperity) is infallible.
