Editorial Reviews

From AudioFile

Best-known for her classic, Creative Visualization, Gawain offers here a larger outlook on prosperity, one beyond the normal limits of money. She first examines three perspectives on prosperity: materialistic philosophy, New Age thought, and a transcendent spiritual viewpoint. On the level of the individual, true prosperity means balance, personal satisfaction and fulfilling relationships. Integral to this experience of prosperity is the balancing of polarities: active and receptive, giving and receiving, doing and being. The author, a casual yet careful reader, delivers her material with gentleness, humor and com-passion. The technical quality of the recording is excellent. Creating True Prosperity is certain to be popular among Gawain fans and among listeners interested in a more metaphysical perspective on money. C.S.

Format: Paperback
Shakti Gawain is well-known as an expert in personal growth and consciousness. She's written numerous book and leads workshops internationally. Her latest book, Creating True Prosperity, teaches that the way to happiness is not necessarily the accumulation of wealth.
Gawain defines prosperity as "the experience of having plenty of what we truly need and want in life, material and otherwise." She adds that "the key point to understand is that prosperity is an internal experience, not an external state, and it is an experience that is not tied to money." This is one reason why many people find themselves unhappy, despite the fact that they have more than enough money to cover their needs.
This does not mean that money is unimportant, and a certain amount of it is obviously needed to meet basic survival needs. The difficulty for many people comes from how they think about money. Gawain says that "essentially, money is a symbol for energy." We use our energy in a certain way--work--and receive money in exchange. We can then exchange our money for something created by someone else's energy. This defines money as a flow of energy and "our financial affairs tend to reflect how our life energy is moving."
Prosperity eludes many of us for a variety of reasons. Gawain provides some exercises for understanding personal patterns and overcoming habits and thought processes that keep individuals from achieving their prosperity goals. From this, she gets into a discussion of polarities and how most of us feel that we must always choose between opposites, with neither choice providing happiness. She details six steps that help individuals to balance their own inner polarities.

Format: Audio Cassette
The "CREATING TRUE PROSPERITY" audio cassette by Shakti Gawain excerpts the essential ideas presented in her prosperity workshop and her book of the same title. The key word here is "true." On Side One, Gawain discusses what true prosperity is. Is prosperity having plenty of money? If so, then how much is plenty? For most of us, it is a case of not experiencing prosperity no matter how much money we have. Why? Generally, the more money we have, the more responsibility we acquire in the process. Also, our expenses usually increase proportionately as our income increases. Actually, Gawain points out, true prosperity has little to do with money. Prosperity is having plenty of what we truly need and want in life. Therefore, her first recommendation is to discover just exactly what it is that we need and want. With that done, the next thing that we require according to Gawain is the ability to bring these things into our lives. Her final recommendation is to enjoy and appreciate what we already have.
Gawain's key point seems to be that prosperity is related to but not caused by money, which is only the means not the end. So then, just what is the relationship between money and prosperity? Gawain suggests, there are three approaches to this relationship. The material approach is a purely external one while the spiritual approach is an internal one. The third approach, which Gawain calls the "New Age" approach, is based on consciousness. We manifest externally what we feel and think internally. While Gawain considers this last approach more realistic than the material or the spiritual, she feels that all three are too simplistic and limiting and offers a fourth approach This one draws on the other three but goes beyond them.

11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Truth is Out There on January 30, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Sometimes getting ahead in life is a little bit more than just how much money you can make. Creating True Prosperity is a careful blend of being balanced in one's life and truly experiencing happiness. In this book a philosophy is revealed that helps you gauge and understand why you may not be truly happy even if you currently are earning a decent income. Shakti strikes out and rattles a persons fundamental values and shows us how society has created its own self delusional citizens. She has a very pleasant way of writing that is easy to follow and extremely logical. This is simply another must read for anyone concerned with their personal improvement and betterment of their soul.

This book has to be the best kept secret. I wish I had read it ages ago. (I know, it wasn't published then.) This book is a treasure of quick, precise information. Now I know "why" and "how". Wow!
