"Real magic," according to Dyer ( Your Erroneous Zones ), has nothing to do with sorcerers or fairy godmothers. It occurs in our daily lives when we let go of negativity and self-limiting beliefs about ourselves and our circumstances and instead pursue " perfect equilibrium of the mind." Urging readers to "realign" themselves with the "invisible world," Dyer offers concrete suggestions about how to "get to purpose" through service to others and unconditional love, how to become spiritual beings and how to create a "miracle mindset." He also explores ways readers might improve relationships and find prosperity, personal identity and even physical health. Finally, he explains how "real magic" can be plumbed on the global level to alleviate world problems. With anecdotes from his personal life, Dyer illustrates his own "magnificent transformation," testifying that "real magic" has led him to the higher awareness he cheers his readers toward. $150,000 ad/promo; author tour.

Dyer (You'll See It When You Believe It, 1989, etc.) recaps the major tenets of New Age thinking--power meditation, unified field theory, mind-body healing, and prosperity consciousness, to name a few. ``Real magic,'' according to Dyer, is the seemingly miraculous response of the environment to a unity of purpose and belief in the individual. Whatever you believe, he says, you will create both within and outside yourself. Your present circumstances have also been created by you in the past--and this is not blaming the victim, Dyer insists in the face of criticism that it is cruel to hold the poor and ill responsible for their misfortune; rather, he claims, it is an empowering of the victim by offering the promise of self-created change. Health, prosperity, a more pleasing and successful personality, fulfilling relationships--all are within our power to bring into being. How? By becoming more spiritual beings; by being open to divine guidance; by meditating daily; by being willing to believe in a reality beyond that verifiable by the five senses; by developing a loving, accepting attitude. The power of real magic also radiates beyond the individual, Dyer maintains, so that a person who has gotten ``to purpose'' can change the world just by being. All this is more or less familiar to readers of Deepak Chopra, Jose Silva, Krishnamurti, and others. Dyer's strength is in popularizing these thinkers and their ideas for the mainstream; his weakness is in a certain whiff of infatuation with his own celebrity that now and then wafts up from his pages. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Not my style. I had read similar New Age books written in the 1960s and 70s. I only read the first chapter and then passed it on. I'm over that phase of my life.Published 2 months ago by Kit Carson
