More About the Author

I'm a retired psychotherapist who holds a doctoral degree in Psychology and had a private practice in San Jose, California for 25 years. I'm the author of "Memories of Times Past," "Inspirational Quotations From the Concept-Therapy Philosophy," and "Mind Magic, Techniques for Transforming Your Life" a self-help book which has been translated into 5 languages.
I'm also an experienced public speaker who taught classes on self-development in the San Francisco Bay Area for 15 years. I'm currently working on my 4th book, "Sorry To Be Leaving You," the story of a mother reuniting with her adoptive son after 30 years. I love dogs and have a Bichon and a Shih Tzu who love each other.

Format: Paperback
What I liked about this book is that it doesn't focus on just one method of change, such as affirmations, visualizations or self-hypnosis, which may not work for everyone. Rather, it offers a potpourri of techniques for improving one's life without the "psychobabble" found in many self-help books. Dr. Hiatt clearly shows how people can change negative tapes that were programmed into their subconcious when they were young and substitute images that are positive and affirming.

Format: Paperback
Marta Hiatt writes in the tradition of the great 20th century metaphysicians like Dr Joseph Murphy, Florence Scovel-Shinn and Catherine Ponder, but her style is thoroughly updated for the 21st century and her work is firmly grounded and integrated in psychology - she also draws on the experience she has acquired as a marriage and family therapist.
In the first part, The Evolution Of Consciousness, she explains how the mind works, while the second part provides Techniques For Transformation such as affirmation, self-hypnosis, imagination, visualization and the goal of it all: cosmic consciousness. A rich array of helpful affirmations are provided, plus the best ways of using them, and there's a chapter on proper nutrition, stress and exercise.
The appendices include detailed information for relaxation plus suggestions for self-hypnosis. There are apposite quotes and bibliographic references throughout the text, as well as an extensive bibliography and index, and the book is well-illustrated with figures explaining various aspects of consciousness.
The secret to success is learning how to transform one's inner landscape so your life fulfills your highest promise. This book, a classic of the genre, informs you how to do this in an intelligent but easy-to-understand manner and is the best I have encountered in quite some time. I highly recommend it.

Marta Hiatt gives you all you need to know to create for yourself a life you'll love getting up in the morning to live.

No psychobabble, technobabble, or egobabble. Straight and to the point techniques you can use right now to create the life you want.

Even if you are already where you want to be, you will learn so much about how you work mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually, you will be empowered to start on a dime to make changes happen for you should your find your circumstances altered by life, like the death of a loved one, loss of a job, home or physical ability/ies.

Magic ways really do exist and Ms. Hiatt tells you how to do a number of things that will empower you in ways you can't even imagine. Sure, there are other magic books out there. I don't know about you, but when I finished them, I still felt I was in the same place I was when I started. Sure, I picked up a tip or two, but nothing like Hiatt's instructions. Do this and get that result. Sound simple? It is. All you have to do is do it. I am doing it. I wish for you the motivation to do it as well. Are these ways magic bullets? They are the closest thing I have ever found.

By A Customer on February 1, 2004
Format: Paperback
This book is a combination - New Thought meets Freud. The author describes how our conscious and subconscious minds interact to determine our lives and health. Unfortunately, the psychology overshadows the spiritual.
The description of quantum mechanics is clumsy. Chapters on hypnosis, consciousness, and the body/mind connection are long-winded and dull (I felt like I was sitting through Psych 101 again). Much of it was unnecessary - is there anybody out there who still doesn't know that we need to reduce stress, eat nutritious foods, and get exercise in order to be healthy? Of course our mental attitude plays a role.
The book was disappointing - it's a rehash of old news. If you are familiar with Ernest Holmes, Napoleon Hill, Wallace Wattles, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, Allan Cohen, Stuart Wilde, Victor Boc, Louise Hay, etc., you will find very little new meat in this book. I was particularly troubled by the chapter on prosperity; much of it seems to be taken nearly word for word from other authors.
Instead of this book, I recommend "The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" by Joseph Murphy. "Self-Hypnosis" by Alman and Lambrou, and "Your Heart's Desire" by Sonia Choquette are also good choices.

Having read many "self help" books, I must say that this one definatley stands out from the crowd. Specifically, the author clearly and persuasivley makes the case for living with self-esteem. She states that one should treat one's self (and this includes what one says to one's self in one's head) as one would treat a loving friend. I have yet to see this idea expressed so throughly and convincingly. I highly reccomend this book; it can do wonders for your life!

five stars plus...I purchased this book and once I started reading it it was like being on the road to enlightenment... it is an excellent book full of wonderful useful information for those wanting to really take a look at negative aspects in their lives so they can learn how to turn those aspects into positives. I wish every book was this delightful. I highly recommend it to students of or anyone who uses Hypnotherapy...
