If you are one of those exact, precise and scientific persons that want everything written, then The Magic, with all its blessings, counting and motivational ideas, is not for you. For example, one of the methods that one could use for obtaining success is to make a list with ten things that you have, and to say “thank you” for having those, each time for each.
Besides the fact that applying the book to your life takes time, there are no proofs that those methods are actually valid. Only the process of making a list in ten points and about being thankful for each one of those lasts for about 30 minutes, so do we have time for that every day?
Another method proposed by Rhonda Byrne is to find a rock, or an object from nature, and to keep it in a place where you can see it all the time. Every night, you need to grab the rock and to say thank you for the best thing that happened to you during that day. Again, this looks like a trick taken from witches spells, but according to some people, the system really works.
The morning thanks and the evening rock blessing continues for one month, and it must be completed with some daily exercises. This is how you discover your gratitude for what you have, allowing you to feel a lot better for yourself.
Is it working?
According to the people that read the book and applied what is written there, the system works simply because it gives self-awareness. You don’t have to believe that a rock can change your life, but thinking about the good things that are already yours will help you to forget about the ones that you don’t have. Moreover, those things will also start coming.
The books come with many lessons of this kind. The general idea is to understand the law of attraction, and to combine it with the law of gratitude, which will eventually manifest into a better life. It all comes from the positive thinking. As long as you are grateful for what you have, you create the energy ways required for the things that you don’t have to come to you.
According to the people that don’t believe what is said in the book, there are many other things to consider. Reading such a book changes your life even if you don’t believe all those things about energies and stuff, simply because it allows you to think better about yourself. It might work at the subconscious level, being one of the subtle motivational books. It does not say directly what you need to do to achieve success, but it creates the perquisites for that, simply by teaching you how to be in peace with yourself at the current moment.
The Magic by Rhonda Byrne is one of the most appreciated books about self improvement because of this reason. If you feel lost and you don’t want another technical motivational book telling you when to wake up in the morning and how to talk with your colleagues to intimidate them, then this is the book that you need.
