The Breakthrough Experience helped me finally understand the concept of the Law of Polarity, aka Divine Compensation. I began to look for everything I'd "lost" in the world all around me and realized nothing is ever lost. It's all there in different forms and coming from different places. After reading this book, I switched to "observer mode" and started finally seeing all the compensating blessings. Within a few short months, my life completely turned around and all my big dreams started falling into place. What's more, I'm able to proceed through life seeing both the challenge and support in every situation. This realistic view of life has helped me avoid putting anyone or anything in a pit or on a pedestal. It's helped me see the amazing blessings laced within any challenge.
Outside of scripture, I can honestly say this book is the most transformational book I've ever read. I love it and have recommended it to so many people.
If you get it, be sure to do the "Breakthrough Experience" exercise. It took me about 3 hours to do it, but it was well worth the time investment. I was able to completely release any ill-will toward my ex in record time. I was able to see that he was a gift in my life when he was there and that he gave me the most wonderful, incredible gift in letting me go. Had he not, I would not be living my dream today.
The best book on spirituality I have found, it covers everything that interests me.
His techniques and insightful writing can shift your perceptions in a matter of minutes and if you're open to improving your life, it truly works.
I'm honestly shocked this book doesn't have hundreds of positive reviews. Now, if you're closed minded and enjoy the miseries in life, you may not be receptive to his teachings and some may say it is unrealistic. But I simply disagree, our lives really are based on perceptions.... So why not learn to shift yours to see the light?
One part of his book that stuck with me was his statement that grief can be processed within a matter of hours if you use his trademark method! Poo-poo on us for taking years to process our own grief if we've experienced significant loss! Well, Dr. Demartini, I would argue that either a.) you are extremely out of tune with your own emotions (oh yes, I remember now that you mentioned that emotions are useless) b.) you haven't experienced a significant or traumatic loss in your life, or c.) if you have experienced significant loss in your life, you are so far removed from your emotions to the level that you have psychopathic tendencies and therefore do not have the capability of experiencing grief. The way that he writes about people experiencing their own emotions and grief has an air of shaming about it. As if we are ridiculous humans for experiencing our own emotions and not just seeing how everything balances and then being okay with everything! Don't you know, it's as simple as using his step by step method to solving all the worlds mental health problems! And therapists are completely useless, too! Again, Dr. Demartini, I work in the Emergency Room, and clearly you have not exposed yourself to people who have psychological diagnoses and true emotional traumas and disturbances in their life. Please, tell the woman who was just violently raped that all she has to do is find the balance and she'll see the light. Please tell the man who just attempted suicide because he has suffered severe depression due to physical and sexual abuse as a child that he just has to look back at what those situations taught him and see the balance, and his suicidal depression will be cured! Now, I don't disagree that people in those types of situations are going to have to learn coping and how to balance and manage what they have experienced; but these things take years of practice, learning, patience, and rewiring the brain along with an extensive support system- something that most people in those situations do not have. Somehow, I don't think your magic method is going to help them in their state of crises as you so proclaim in your book.
Now, I will say, that some of what he says does have good meaning and intent. However, in practice it is only going to help people who are mentally and emotionally capable of dealing with their life issues and traumas already. For example, he discusses a great deal the principle of looking at your life and balancing out the good and bad. Yes, that is a good method of recognizing that there is always balance and you have to choose to see it. But you are only going to be able to do that if you are mentally already somewhat healthy and have the cognitive ability to view the whole picture and recognize what you learned from the good and the bad. I would argue that the above idea is what many therapists utilize when working with their clients. However, DeMartini writes in his book that therapists are essentially useless and only serve to classify people's problems to make them feel better about it instead of working to solve their problems (because obviously the DeMartini method is superior to anything an academically trained Ph. D psychologist who has studied scientific evidence and clinically worked with thousands of patients would be able to provide for a patient!)
DeMartini has no formal education or training in mental health, psychology, or behavioral/emotional health. He is a chiropractor. However, he brings this up in his book and refutes his lack of subject matter background by saying that if anyone studies on a topic for an hour a day, after just a few years they will be an expert on that topic! Well, that's great. But I won't be letting the guy who studied Cardio-thoracic surgery independently for an hour a day be performing any heart surgeries on me. Just like I will be taking anything said by a man who has independently studied psychology and claims he is an expert with a grain of salt, in relation to applying it to my own mental health and emotional well being. There is a major difference between a self-proclaimed expert, and a tried and true, well-practiced expert. I'll take the latter.
I will end by saying that if you read this book and it helped you, then that is wonderful. As I said above, there were some good concepts written in the book that when you strip away the extra hogwash and get down to the base ideas, the information is useful. But the conceited portrayal and mystical ideologies that fill up the rest of this book are non-sense.
