Format: Paperback
Dr. Demartini has an amazing gift of delivering profound insights of human nature in easy to read stories and description. This book outdistances many others of the self help genre by describing ,with examples, the reason why certain life situations occur. He sheds light on everyday difficult situations such that you are given the tools to work through them and gain the reward of understanding, gratitude and mastery of the person, place or event. Dr. Demartini presents a model of love that works,is real and reproducible. Imagine being able to feel love more often and quickly. This book should be the handbook for parents, teachers, students and anyone who would love to thrive through life. Thank you Dr. Demartini

Format: Paperback
In his book, Dr. Demartini begins by saying, "Every single one of us has greatness and immortal genius inside. Everything that happens is directed toward waking us up to that gift and potential. We may have positive and negative opinions about the various people and events in our lives, but in truth, they all play a perfect role in unfolding our destiny and making us who we are." What he is saying consistently is that in every person or event, there is always and inevitably both positive and negative.

Dr. Demartini is not even saying that we should discount the negative and embrace the positive. What he is saying is that we need to come to appreciate the balanced experience and know that each is necessary for us and is as it should be. He tells us that "all phenomena are universally full-quantum. . .there must be no such thing as happiness without sadness, or sadness without happiness."

He speaks about gratitude being the key to "growth and fulfillment" and that those who learn to be grateful for what they have are quickly rewarded with more. He defines true gratitude as "a quiet state of poise and inner calm where you're truly thankful, where you sense the divine order and wouldn't want anything to change."

He then acknowledges how it's difficult to experience this sense of gratitude until we learn how to find the hidden benefit in what may at first seem to be a negative event. Everything that happens in our lives is a gift and a blessing.

Dr. Demartini talks about how we must come to welcome the balance between positive and negative. He says, "When you know that bad things aren't so terrible and good things aren't so terrific, you can be quietly grateful for whatever occurs. Balance is neither pessimism nor optimism. . .

I had the oppurtunity of hearing Dr. Demartini speak at a chiropractic seminar. However, his inspirational speaking took me far beyond the scope of chiropractic. That was three years ago and his inspirational & convictional speaking still moves me to this day. I purchased the book at the seminar and enjoyed it. The exercises are quite detailed and even the parts I did of the exercises brought great memorable, needed emotional releases in my life. Very inspiring man!!!

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very applicable to my life in many ways, particlarly with the affirmations. Dr. Demartini is an interesting author with a viewpoint that is refreshing and different than the cookbook approach repeated over and over in most personal development books. Well worth the time and investment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have to admit, when I first started reading this, I put it down after a couple of chapters. I also have to admit, the reason that I did it was because I knew it was the truth and I was afraid to face it. For the 24 hours following I had a voice in the back of my head telling me to pick it back up again. I did. One of the best decisions I've ever made.

Everything in this book resonated with me. Going back through my life I realized the truth behind this. It also agrees with a lot of what I have been reading for the last couple of years. Within these pages are not only very wise words, but this book actually has real techniques that you can put to use right now to change your life. The key is to be completely honest with yourself. Don't lie to yourself and say that you're being honest, actually be honest. If you do, the effect will be phenomenal.

11 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Rosemarie S on March 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I know someone who is fan of Demartini and his "Breakthrough Experience" concept. I was curious as much of what I'd heard espoused sounded like half-baked misunderstandings of other disciplines. This book explains much that concerned me.

The reality is that no-one can have done in-depths studies of more than 200 disciplines. Only skimming the surface can have happened; and it shows, as some of the concepts lack actual understanding of the discipline that is not quite being discussed.

While some of the suggestions and findings are good starting points, there is little that is great and even less that is unique or new. So much is a kind of superficial and kind of shallow exploration of what is better presented elsewhere, and (in my view) there is a lot of nonsense and padding.

A kind of trite book that may offer a great starting point for the bewildered and those lacking self-awareness.
