This is a very positive book.

The basic idea in the book is that everyone has something to be grateful for. If even on our worst days we start looking at what we already have, rather than what we do not have we can improve out outlook and spirit.

The book encourages the readers to believe in the best in each person they meet and provide each person some positive feedback. Small specific acts to make a positive difference, for example offer a ride, say a few nice words, say thank you.

Her positive thoughts and ideas are accompanied by paragraphs from scriptures. If you are religious you will find comfort in these frequent references. If you are not religious you might find these references to God too frequent, but I would still encourage you to plow through it, as the book has a lot of positive thoughts especially for someone who is struggling with difficulties in life.

The Heart of Abundance is about appreciating life right now. No matter what hand you were dealt, finding even the small things that are good can help pass through a dark passage. This book is about being positive about life every day, not just on the occasions when everything seems to be going your way.

I was pleased to recognize some of the things I do when things are not going well. I do find it helps to concentrate thinking about something you look forward to every day, even if it can be as small as, say, a TV episode you plan to see when the bad day at work is over. I found it helps me to get through a bad day.

This book will help you create your own reality - mindset and your attitude control how you feel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great but it was free November 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't think this type of book is a good format for Kindle. It would be better appreciated in actual book form to use more as a reference. I'm only 15% into it and already it's annoying me with "Abundance is.....", then fill in the blank. Not finding it inspiring like I thought I would--just boring and tiring.

First of all, I admire writings that strive to better people's lives. However, this book was simply not useful.

The book is very unfocused: a couple short paragraphs on the subject, then a list of random quotes (many of which aren't exactly on-topic), then a short (or long) list of "Abundance is... [x,y,z]" of which many are airy, without much meaning, and could fit under any other word's definition.

And then a few more quotes. And then a paragraph, another short list, another paragraph, another list of quotes, and so on. You get the idea.

The last 20% of the book was simply lists of sources, books the author read/liked in the past, and plugs for other books.

Final note: I'm not bashing the author here - again, it's a positive attempt to reach people's hearts. But, if you are looking for a more useful/inspirational/moving book, save your time and look elsewhere. There's a lot of fluff here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, spiritual read August 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the great words of wisdom, affirmations, and quotes in this gem of a book. I prefer to read inspirational books that are more spiritual and less religious and this book was just that. This book's ideologies of life are similar to that of Louise Hay and The Secret and I've enjoyed this book and Louise Hay's books the best. As the other reviewer said, if you are in a rut or going through a tough time, this book and its message will inspire you to not give up and reach for your dreams!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Full of So Many Wonderful Things October 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an amazing amount of Truth in one place. I started reading and just couldn't stop. I absolutely loved the quotes interspersed throughout the text. The most powerful spiritual tool at our disposal is gratitude. If one has an attitude of gratitude everything falls into place. One of my favorite affirmations is "There is no reality in lack, abundance is here and now manifest." The section on abundance rocked my socks. Thank you for sharing this wonderful book.

Blessings,
