More About the Author
Part of what made me what I am today is living and working through an inordinate amount of challenges. Suffice to say that my life had been difficult, however I was eventually guided to the materials and ways of thinking and being that would change everything.
Starting at age twenty nine while I was living in Los Angeles I spent the next decade educating myself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I devoured every book I could get my hands on that would either shed light on why I was behaving like such a moron or help me to become more successful or both. Eventually, this intense line of self-study led towards spirituality. This, in turn, would become my defining characteristic as I studied Eastern Philosophy, meditation, Western Psychology, and everything in between.
This then led to the successful launch of my second attempt at running my own personal training business after I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. Armed with my new level of self awareness and mind/body sciences I achieved a six figure income for the first time in my life. I considered this to be more of a success than many millionaires due to the sheer level of ignorance and poverty consciousness from which I had evolved.
In turn this led to the desire to share my life story and life lessons on spirituality in hopes that I could help others like myself to gain awareness and avoid many of the painful pitfalls along the road. I wrote Reality Creation 101 and launched a whole new career for myself in writing and coaching and never looked back.
I now run my international skype-coaching business and publishing company out of my home in Northern California full time.
Q: What motivates you to write?
A: I enjoy writing for several reasons. First, I enjoy the creative expression. From this I extract a combination of the feelings of empowerment, accomplishment, and also relief-to let the creative energy manifest, to let it out. Additionally, I super duper enjoy the idea of being my own boss and living life on my own terms. It's not always easy, but I thank god every day that I am a writer/creator/entrepreneur.
Q: What is your earliest memory of writing?
A: I began writing at around 16. I wrote about what inspired me at the time which was Sci-Fi and Fantasy fiction. I was a scared, timid little kid who hid out in the library so as to avoid having to confront bullies and/or girls (I was petrified of both!). Fantasy books like 'The Sword of Shannara' and 'Lord Foul's Bane' helped to transport me to some distant land where I could imagine I had the strength and depth of the characters I read about. I still read both of those genres, but I mostly write nonfiction self help type books. I may venture into fiction at some point. I believe, however, that it's much more difficult to write a good fiction book than it is to write a good nonfiction book. Writing good fiction really requires both grammar and prose, of which we may find that I come up sadly lacking.
Q: What is the primary message of your books and writing?
A: Empowerment. Or rather, self empowerment. The single biggest life lesson that I have learned (and mostly the hard way) is that of 'self empowerment'. The message of my books is that you can do it, be it, live it-whatever you want. If you believe you can then you will. However, most people do not really believe that they are capable of living their dreams. Thus, my mission is to remind people of their inner power and gifts and inspire them to reach for their highest ideals of themselves. I believe that, on any given day, an average person can suddenly wake up and realize that they are worthy of amazing things and change the world with their vision. I've seen it done before so I know it can happen.
Q: What do you do for fun?
A: I play xbox, enjoy a really well made Margarita, and go on hikes in the mountains. Sometimes I find the energy to go dancing. Mostly I am focused upon my goals so don't find tons of time to goof off. But, sometimes I think I don't goof off enough. I mean, look at me now, you ask me about fun and I refer to it as 'goofing off'. Maybe that's not good. But, I do play Xbox. I enjoy playing Left 4 Dead, Battlefield 3, anything by Bethesda Software (Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Skyrim, Fallout Vegas, etc), and other games. I also read anything by David Gemmell or Joe Abercrombie (fantasy fiction writers). So even though I work out and train martial arts and conduct workshops and speaking engagements, I am still an introvert at heart.
Q: What message would you give to aspiring writers?
A: Go for it! But one word of warning...be authentic. If you write to sell the reader will see right through it in a heartbeat. However, if you write what you are passionate about, eventually you will have a following. Don't be in it for the quick fix, be in it for the long haul. It will pay off for you in the end.

Now, after reading this book I feel completely differently about the word 'manifestation' as well as 'The Law of Attraction'. Not only do I better understand now, but Pinckley has given me the physical tools to transform my life!
I have read a number of books on personal development and more often than not, they left me feeling even more critical toward myself as I could not, through the same techniques that Christopher A. Pinckley describes, achieve long-term, positive results. Sooner or later I felt rather disempowered as I felt I was failing, was not disciplined enough to through visualisation, meditation and affirmation achieve my goals.
I found this book truly enlightening, empowering and the very style of writing made it quite personal for me as I felt guided thorugh the process. Christopher A. Pinckley is very honest about his own journey of personal development and overcoming his negative pattern of thought and behaviour which adds a very special, personal touch to his book. I felt supported on my own journey and questioning what reality I want to create, what thought and behaviours I have that have prevented me to achieve that so far and how to overcome that.
It may prove difficult indeed to appreciate that we live a reality which we have created ourselves and blame it all on external sources including difficult boss at work making our working life unpleasant, unloving partner making us feel neglected etc. Instead of continuing this train of thought which lefts us feeling disempowered and even more disappointed in others thus taking us even further awyay from achieving our goals, this book helped me to reprogramme my way of thinking.Read more ›
I especially love the chapter on "Controlling Your Thoughts," as Pinckley shares experiences in which he practiced thinking positively about someone he hated... and discovered much to his surprise that changing his thoughts could have such an immediate, positive effect. "The moment I began truly working towards having more positive thoughts rather than negative ones was the moment I started to turn my life around."
REALITY CREATION 101 is packed with truly useful and easy to understand exercises for getting clear about who you are, how you feel and what you want... making the process of reality creation so straightforward that any change-motivated person can do it.
I recommend this book for anyone looking for some way to elevate their quality of life above the surrounding levels of mass consciousness. This book makes an excellent gift, too!
Christpher Pinckley really points out that while the 'feel good' is one of the keys to attract,there is baggage,that can be that trip-wire from getting what we have,in step by steps ways,Christopher shows just how to address those issues and how to create the life you wish to have.
This is a awesome and illuminating book that I found,or did I attract this? And I am extremely delighted in reading this and learning.
