"What a jewel of a book this is! And how WONDERFUL to have Mr. Irion's wisdom brought back into manifestation in this way! This little volume will be SUCH a gift to the world!"
Peggy Day, co-author, Psychic Children: A Sign of Our Expanding Awareness
"Carol's friendly style makes the information easy to digest and follow."
~ Judith Munns, Nanaimo Metaphysical Network, Nanaimo, BC, Canada
"This little book allowed me to reach a deeper appreciation of all that life offers; to see the perfection of my life's path; and from that place, a more humble heart emerged as I followed Carol's prescribed route to manifesting my hearts desires through the auspices of prayer."
~ Shannon Wills, Nanaimo, BC, Canada
"Carol Chapman delivers an up-beat hopeful message that we can change our lives in many ways. The author gives practical examples of using tools such as gratitude lists and specific prayers for manifestation, forgiveness, and release of resentment with guidelines on the wording and time frame for the greatest results. Many examples are shared with the reader to show the impact the prayers had as well as how J. Everett Irion helped guide and lead Carol at a young age to use the power of prayer."
~ Lindy van Burik, co-moderator, the Edgar Cayce Forum, Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA
I personally have really benefited from the 40-day prayers in Have Your Heart's Desire
. That's why I mention them in my speaking events. However, just because they're called, "prayers," you shouldn't think that these are formal, official, religious, institutional prayers. Yes, they are prayers, but in the sense that a prayer is talking to the Creator, Universe, the Force, or whatever you may call your Higher Power. Specifically, in the book, I make it clear that you may use whatever works best for you.
There's more in the book than only the two 40-day prayers, the Manifestation Prayer, and the Forgiveness Prayer. There's more, because people have all kinds of questions about the prayers, such as:
- What can I expect?
- What if I miss a day?
- What if I don't get what I asked for?
- Should I write them down?
All these questions, and more, are addressed in the book.
There's also the questions of how to word the prayers. I've heard amusing stories from people who have used the 40-day manifestation prayer but did not give a whole lot of thought to how they were wording their request. That's why there's a section in the book on positive prayers, with examples of phrasing requests in a positive way.
Speaking of wording requests in a positive manner, the suggestions for wording the Manifestation prayer in a positive manner can be used in all areas of our life.
For example, I heard an entertaining story from the woman who was introducing me at a recent speaking event. She told the audience how she had begun to read Have Your Heart's Desire
the night before. When she got to the part about powerful positive prayers, she realized why her hairdo had turned out exactly the way she did NOT want it to look the last time she went to the hairdressers. She had actually phrased her request in a manner that had created the type of hairdo she did NOT want. Now that she had read that part about phrasing requests in a positive manner, she knew how to ask the hairdresser for the kind of hairdo she wanted in such a way that she would get what she requested.
In another instance, at the end of a speaking event, a woman had come up to me to ask for my help. Because the event had been about Atlantis, rather than spiritual awakening, I had not mentioned the 40-day prayers. There are usually a number of people crowded around me asking questions at the end of a day-long event. This woman began to tell me about a very difficult situation in her life involving a relative. Before she could continue, I gently interrupted her and told her than since I'm not a psychologist, I couldn't give her advice. But, I could give her the 40-day Forgiveness Prayer, which I did. Three months later, she turned up at another one of my speaking events. She told me that she had driven three hours to come to this event to tell me how much that prayer had helped her. I felt really happy to know it.
That is the reason I have written this book. To be of help to you. Like I said earlier, these prayers have helped me. The Manifestation Prayer is similar to the Secret in that it addresses the Law of Attraction. But, if you ever felt uneasy asking for something, because you weren't sure if what you were asking for was in line with your soul's desires, Have Your Heart's Desire
will help you out.
The Forgiveness Prayer is of a different nature. It creates healing for you by connecting with the person who has harmed you or the person you have harmed at the soul level.
You'll also learn about freeing yourself of resentment, making wise choices, the paradox of the unconscious, and grace in the book.
In addition, I wanted to give you a bit of a "Tuesdays with Morrie" glimpse into my relationship with the wonderful man who created these prayers, J. Everett Irion. I knew him years ago when I used to go for private counseling sessions with him at Edgar Cayce's A.R.E. in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He was my, and many others', personal spiritual coach. These sessions helped me to change my life for the better.
Have Your Hearts Desire is the first book in the "Your Spiritual Awakening" series. When readers learned of the many spiritual techniques I had used that led to my spiritual awakening as described in my book, When We Were Gods: Insights on Atlantis, Past Lives, Angelic Beings of Light, and Spiritual Awakening, they asked me to give them step-by-step instructions. In answer to their request, I am creating the "Your Spiritual Awakening" series which will include dream study, meditation methods, and manifesting psychic soul powers through communicating with nature spirits.
