Format: Paperback
A great little book, small enough to keep on your desktop at work, so you can read snippits frequently and stay in-balance. Looks at life from a "road less traveled" perspective, more of a bigger-picture/real meaning-of-life perspective, such as how to really align your thinking with what you want, so that you can actually achieve what you want--getting rid of negativity and the "I can't" mentality, and related subject matter. I keep this booklet and "10 Secrets for Success & Inner Peace" on top of my desk at work at all times and read pieces of them frequently. I also invite co-workers to read them.

One example from the booklet would be that you cannot give away what you don't have to give. So, if you have no love in your heart for others, you cannot give it away, nor can you attract it. Of course, I cannot explain it like Dr Dyer can, but, basically, if you don't feel and demonstrate love toward others, they won't see it or feel it within you. This little book is also loaded with quotes, which reinforce the concepts explained in the book.

The principles of the Law of Attraction is mentioned throughout the book. Basically, this equates to you get what you put out. Again, you DO most certainly get what you give out. For example, if you go around hating people, then you also create an expectation of hate feelings in everyone, and you will attract that very hatred to you. Lots of people don't believe this but I've seen it happen too many times to not believe it. It is easy to watch anger-attracting-anger in action. Just sit back and watch the dynamics of 2 people getting into an argument. Fear attracts fear, and so on. Also sit back and watch the dynamics of joy and laughter. See how others join in the laughter.

I put into practice the focusing skills of this book 5 months ago. I wanted a larger house on an acre so that I could teach my children to work the land. I followed Dr. Dyer's advice. I let go of bad thought habits. I focused on gratitude for the blessings I had. I accepted that more blessings could come my way. Though we didn't have the money at the time I had complete faith in the process. Today I am typing this from our large home situated on an acre. Enough said. I recomend this book to anyone who wants happiness in their lives.

Format: Hardcover
"Getting in balance is not so much about adopting new strategies to change your behaviors, as it is about realigning yourself in all of your thoughts so as to create a balance between what you desire and how you conduct your life on a daily basis." - From the book

In his book Being in Balance, bestselling author Wayne Dyer attempts to bridge the gap between human desire and actual experience. Offering nine approaches to balance the scales towards optimal living, vibrant spirituality, and personal dreams, Dyer maintains that you and your environment are the direct product of your thoughts. These nine recommendations to restore equilibrium include:

1. An Infinity of Forests Lie Dormant Within the Dreams of One Acorn

2. There's More to Life Than Making It Go Faster

3. You Can't Kiss Your Own Ear

4. Your Addictions Tell You, "You'll Never Get Enough of What You Don't Want"

5. You're Not *What* You Eat; You're What You *Believe* about What You Eat

6. You Can't Discover Light by Analyzing the Darkness

7. Fighting Any Adverse Condition Only Increases Its Power Over You

8. Love Is What's Left Over When Falling in Love Fades Away

9. Earth's Crammed with Heaven

Like his previous book Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling, Being in Balance draws heavily from the Law of Attraction. As a result, much of the text reads like recycled Abraham material, but without the basic understanding of the Art of Allowing. And, like Inspiration: Your Ultimate Calling, this book overflows with muddled logic and contradiction.

For example, in the chapter on eating, Dyer asserts that an individual can eat whatever they want and still attain perfect health.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Wayne Dyer delivers again. I bought this book along with 10 Secrets For Success. Both books are perfect companions. Buy the Dyer-Double and you will be glad you did. Wayne Dyer writes as he speaks, in an authentic and experienced way. Never talking down to his reader, he offers up some basic [un]common sense ideas for bringing one's life into balance. He is one who obviously walks to walk of his belief system. It shows. The reader, or at least THIS reader, has been practicing the 9 principles as a life-defining tool. Rather than allowing life to happen, I will be creating NEW habits to replace less-effective reactions that do not work anyway. Dr. Dyer does it again. Make it a double!

I have read nearly all of Wayne Dyers' books, listened to some of his tapes and have attended one of his lectures; and I must say that this book, "Being In Balance", is possibly the best book he has ever written.

Basic truths, well written and easily understood. The 9 principles are very simple and readily applicable to daily life.

It's one of those books to be carried with you and referred to often.
