Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Prosperity, says Gaines, is our birthright, a divine inheritance that incorporates not just material abundance but also a comprehensive knowledge of the consciousness of God. Gaines, a Unity minister, was once down-at-heel and wondering where the next meal was coming from, but now lives a life of luxury. She claims that to follow her example, readers need only put into practice four simple spiritual laws: tithe ten percent of all they earn or receive; set specific financial and spiritual goals; forgive others and themselves daily; and find and commit to a divine purpose. Gaines is well-schooled in Unity principles and the basic New Thought understanding of the power of positive thinking. Thus, for example, she includes an exercise for readers to utter no negative words for 21 days and watch, amazed, as their lives are transformed. Some of the book's stories of divine assistance with finances will spark skepticism in even the most credulous of readers, like Gaines's anecdote about winning a $100 grocery spree immediately after praying for food for her refrigerator, or a story about dreaming that she was supposed to go to Knoxville, Tenn., the night before a study group in that town sent word that they were looking for a Unity minister. Gaines's program is clear and her tone endlessly enthusiastic, but many readers will undoubtedly question her claims of limitless abundance.

Review

“In The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity, Edwene Gaines blends sacred truths with delightful stories of spiritual principles at work"a masterpiece filled with love, humor, and practical steps for a life more abundant.” ―John Randolph Price, Best-selling author and chairman of the Quartus Foundation

“Once in a blue moon a book comes along that changes your life forever. Edwene Gaines has written such a book. By the end of the second chapter I made a decision to follow her suggestions. Thanks to her I have taken an essential step in my own spiritual journey by putting God first in my financial life.” ―John Lee, author of The Flying Boy and Growing Yourself Back-Up

“Edwene Gaines is 'a prosperity pioneer,' the likes of which the world has never seen. After years of lecture work on the subject, she is now sharing with us the results of what her teachings are and the numerous results those who have tried them have gotten. She writes as she lectures--in a straight forward manner with humor. An unbeatable combination! Read, practice, enjoy, and prosper...” ―Catherine Ponder

“Edwene Gaines follows in the tradition of Charles Fillmore, Eric Butterworth, and Catherine Ponder with her transforming message of prosperity: 'God wants you to be prosperous.' Beloved throughout Unity--and with good reason--she has touched hundreds of thousands of people with her breakthrough words of encouragement. Here, her straightforward guide lays it all out in a way that can change anyone's consciousness: four laws of prosperity delivered in the affable, endearing style of the one and only Edwene.” ―Thomas J. Zender, President & CEO, Unity

And, that is how Edwene Gaines begins her introduction to teaching her readers to let their light shine so brightly before everyone who they contact.

Law One: Tithe

When I read in this book, "... tithing is the prosperity principle that tends to bring up the most resistance in people," I could almost hear so many others say, "Every church wants you to keep paying and paying to make the the preachers rich."

Yet, if those same people were to read the explanation that Edwene Gaines has for tithing, they would understand, accept and appreciate that to tithe ten percent of your earnings is giving back to whomever or whatever has given you spiritual food.

This isn't a donation, or a way to control anyone else - it's just a recognition that there is always more, and that your source comes from God.

Law Two: Set Goals

As I read this chapter, I was amazed of the dreams that I had, starting with my falling into a beautiful, clear, crisp ocean, and rising back up in due time.

When I awoke the next morning, I was more relaxed , than I had been in a very long time.

And I was truly moved by a quote in this section of the book, "Successs is built through a willingness to play in an increasingly larger and larger arena."

Law Three: Forgive

Ms. Gaines say's "...unwillingness to forgive is like stabbing ourselves with a knife and expecting the person who did us wrong to feel the pain."

What a great analogy about forgiving.

In my life time commitment to endlessly grow, particularly at the beginning of my having made this commitment,in 1989, I have been writing emotional map letters, where I typed the worst to the best about what I experienced with anyone in my life.

I just have one thing to say that God sends Edwene Gaines on this earth just to write this book to help desperate people who work hard all their lives and still can't make their ends meet. I am one of those people. It was a miracle when i saw this book at Borders on 9/11/05. I was so dumbfounded when i realized this is the answer i've been searching for so long. It's been almost 2 months since I start using the technique in this book. And the result is unbelievable. I got a raise from my work, I got a unexpected refund check from insurance company,and some other things. I know it's a bit early to say, but i believe it's gonna work. Anyway,i love this book so much i recommend it to anyone and suggest you give it a try

First, I am not a religious person... so I had some struggles getting through the first chapter or so. However, once I was able to "change" some of the wording to adapt to my personal spiritual beliefs, I found the concepts and steps very meaningful. I began the book in Dec 2011 and by Dec 2012 I had amassed much more prosperity in my life. Not only did my financial prosperity improve greatly, I started to practice financial integrity in everything I did.

There were many challenging steps, and this was a very difficult path. Because I couldn't grasp the concept of tithing, I changed that word to offering - so that if fit with my understanding. That may seem a small adjustment for many, but for me it was a hurdle I had to cross.

THE MOST difficult part of this guidebook was giving 10% of my gross income to where I received my spiritual food. When I wrote that first check in Feb 2012, my hand was literally shaking as I wrote the amount and signed the checks. I had NEVER done anything like this in my life -- so this became an enormous / giant leap of belief and understanding of the book's concepts. After the first month, it gradually got mentally "easier" to write the checks, and by the six month mark, I looked forward to reflecting back on the month of all the places I had received good energy and "spiritual food."

What changed...? At this stage -- now at 12 months -- I am much more at peace in my life. I have experienced abundance in ways that I could not have imagined. My relationships with family, friends, and in business have dramatically improved. Financially, my income increased 10% in Jan 2013, but before I could even get to the end of Jan, it increased another 26.6% that starts in Feb 2013 (as I write this).

This book is inspirational, motivational and dead on with it's very clear, concise action plan. Having read Catherine Ponder, Eric Butterworth, etc., I'd recommend this one above the others.

In today's language and very down-to-earth style, Edwene walks you through what it takes to get out of poverty consciousness and into true abundance. And like attracts like-- as we become more positive, we attract more positive things, people, situations and rewards in our lives. It is the science of the self-fulfilling prophesy. You get what you expect... so how do you learn to expect something different? Edwene provides a clear plan on the "how" as well as the "why".

Her approach is wonderful, and what's more, this is a fun read. You'll look forward to sitting down and sharing a cup of coffee with Edwene, and you'll get loads out of the conversation!

Enjoy & May you go forth & Prosper!
