"Laura Day is a remarkable women with remarkable abilities."
"The Circle takes fate and puts it in the hands of anyone who has the courage to dream."
"If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be? World-renowned intuitionist Laura Day can show you how to make that wish come true."
"Laura Day writes with vision and very practical wisdom--but far more significant to me, I have seen her live this message of love in action, day in and day out. She is the real thing."
"Intuition isn't mystical. It's a sort of background sense of how things should work; it's facts hidden in the brain. Intuition is logic. Laura Day guides you step-by-step through a systematic approach to getting in touch with this important faculty." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
About the Author

Although the book refers to concepts that many associate with spiritual beliefs, Ms. Day encourages you to see the book as independent of any particular religion or set of spiritual beliefs. She also says that it is just fine to reframe her words here to fit into your own religious or spiritual beliefs.
The book's key point is that "what you perceive, what you conceive, and what you create are one . . . ."
The concept is developed in three parts: initiation ("In your initiation, you discover your one true wish and put it into the language of The Circle."), apprenticeship, and mastery. These three parts are broken in turn into a total of nine steps:
(1) Intention -- You pick a single wish that is "specific, positive, passionate, and present."
(2) Embodiment -- You create "reality" tales and songs, and meditate in ways that make the wish more real to yourself.
(3) Ritual -- You follow new rituals that you create to help you achieve your wish and eliminate old habits that would undermine you.
(4) Finding Luck (or Synchronicity) -- You learn to look for meaningful coincidences and tap into them. Often, opportunity will look like a problem, a setback, or a distraction. Pay attention!Read more ›
I have read many books on intuition, creativity, and searching for your life's purpose. I plan to donate them all to my local library because "The Circle" is all I need to find and begin my true life path. Peace to All!
The Circle asks you to start with self-assessment. It starts where Louise Hay left off by saying that you must believe yourself worthy of the things you want, but it goes deeper as this passage reveals:
"Once your are conscious of something--whether a behavior or a value or a hidden agenda-you are more able to make the choice to move beyond it."
The Circle, while written in the eternal future/present of having the wish you want to manifest already true in your life, does not gloss over how conflicting emotions, your perception of the reality of your situation, and subconscious drives can work to make sure your dreams and affirmations fail.
If you believe in the idea of manifesting, you also have to accept that you created what you have now and most importantly.....
are maintaining it through your belief system and the external structures that have formed around it to support your assumptions!
It is very easy to say you want X which is being kept from happening by supporting structure Y, which you have decided you can not live without!! Wishing for X doesn't magically change your refusal to part with Y!
The Circle says that you can not affirm your ability to manifest something and at the same time expect that affirmation to instantly remove negative beliefs and external structures that are directly related to the manifestation. It points out that focusing on an affirmation will immediately bring into awareness the road blocks that have always stopped you from having what you want.Read more ›
