Best known for her groundbreaking book and workshop about creative recovery, The Artist's Way, Julia Cameron returns with an uplifting and inspiring book about the true spiritual meaning of prosperity, The Prosperous Heart. Laid out in the same format as The Artist's Way, Cameron has designed a 12-week recovery program for those suffering from financial instability and an unhealthy relationship with money. Focusing on improving one's financial condition while incorporating faith and spirituality into the process, Cameron once again helps her readers realize that what seems impossible may in fact be within their reach.

The foundational principle of The Prosperous Heart is that prosperity is not a financial concept, but rather a spiritual one. While many seek money as their sole source of stability and abundance, Cameron explains that money alone cannot bring happiness or stability. In actuality, it is faith that provides prosperity, and Cameron freely utilizes her own definition of God as the Great Creator and her personal spirituality to demonstrate her ideas. Fans of Cameron will find familiar tools, such as Morning Pages, three hand-written stream-of-consciousness journal pages written first thing in the morning, and a 20-minute daily walk. New tools for financial recovery include Counting, keeping a small journal of every penny earned and spent over the course of the 12-week program, and Abstinence, a complete abstaining from any further incurrence of debt. These tools were both first presented in Cameron's previous book, Money Drunk, Money Sober.

I have been a follower of Julia Cameron for many years. This new book, The Prosperous Heart, and its message, takes techniques from The Artist's Way and applies them to how we look at money. The subtitle, Creating a Life of "Enough," is a message that we all need to read, hear, and implement in our lives.

This is a twelve week program of regaining your balance and connection with your money and your financial perspective. Cameron "trains" you through these lessons in using your creative spirit to connect with your prosperity in all aspects of your life. Her message--you cannot separate your finances from your spirituality or any other portion of your life--resonates with me, and will probably be a factor in how any reader relates to the message.

The key? "Prosperity is a spiritual bottom line." We are works in progress, evolving, the goal is not to be completed, but to be enriched, growing, learning and experiencing it all from a healthy, balanced perspective.

Cameron gives us the basic tools to practice and learn during the twelve weeks.

* Morning Pages have been an element of Cameron's teachings for many years. The author calls it "...the primary tool of a creative recovery...(and) also a primary tool for establishing prosperity."
* The next basic tool is Counting. It's a simple technique: you learn to habitually count money in and money out.
* Third is Abstinence. STOP going into debt. No more borrowing. Period.
* Fourth is Walking. What? What does walking have to do with growing in prosperity? It is an opportunity to "immerse yourself in the present." It is a way to embrace our own inner connections to the greater world.
* Next up is Time-Out. Yup. Just what it sounds like.

I came across this book by accident. I love Julia Camerons work, but didn't know about this books release until yesterday. Yes, yesterday. I did what she says not to do and I read it all in one day. I plan on going back and doing each chapter as she says to do. The book resonates within me. Fo so long I've needed a solution for my finances and when she addresses the issues and the how-to's for fixing them I say YES! That makes sense and it's something I can do. Also, her statements that money is a spiritual problem is another Yes! moment for me. Knowing firsthand what she writes about has confirmed for me that this book is going to help get my financial and spiritual house in order. If you are creative and need help with your financial life and your spiritual life, this book is for you. As a kindle owner, I am very particular about spending money on books, since I can get so many for free.This one is worth every penny. Thank You Julia.

First a full disclosure: I am a devoted fan of Julia Cameron. All of her books are eminently readable and helpful
I first encountered her 1997 when "The Artist's Way" (1992) was cited in a book I was reading. I bought it and then later, the Morning Pages Journal that accompanies it.

I then purchased her Vein of Gold and, later, Finding Water. I have since acquired almost all of her subsequent books and have enjoyed each of them immensely, especially Floor Sample, the Right to Write, and the Writers Life all of which are less self-help and more of a personal glimpse into Julia the woman and writer.

That being said, however, I found The Prosperous Heart less enjoyable. It follows the model of the Artist's Way, but lacks its depth. There is a formulaic quality to this model, which like her other works, is rooted in a twelve-step approach to personal growth. Although that approach underlies the Artist's Way, in The Prosperous Heart it overshadows the more writerly and personal aspects of the book. I suspect that for a first time reader of Cameron's writings, this may not be a problem. But for me, it felt like, "been there; done that."
