This is a fascinating book written about Jack in the third person which I think was a wise choice. You'll see negative reviews here from those who are used to his lessons in how to create personal success and are disappointed this is not written in the same practical vein.
You'll also see negative reviews from those who complain of ego. I see no ego problems here. Canfield knows what he has achieved and yet is humble enough to continue his learning and reach out to others to share ideas. So I can only conclude those who complain about ego simply have more work to do on their own self confidence.
This is a book for open minded people only. Anyone who's watched the news for the past 15-20 years will have seen the vast change in what is going on in the world. Increased warfare, extreme weather patterns, looming economic downfalls, global warming, more pollution, the rise of the occupy movement showing people's concern for the changes but inability to find a solution.
We sense the pendulum is about to take a turn and here you have a choice.
1) You can ignore it and hope for the best,
2) give up and expect doom
3) or you can take charge, do some study in a broader sense and learn how you can better prepare for that tipping point.
I highly recommend this book to people who choose option 3, who look forward to a better world and love to organise events! Your time has come and you are much needed. Enjoy!
Jack shares his awakening in the hope that others w/ a similar history will come forward, join his `gang' and take action to catalyse and shape the changes that are unfolding. He joins forces with Barbara Marx Hubbard and many others working to create a new energetic pattern on earth and to work towards a global day of celebration and renewal.
While such a cooperation and celebration are adequate goals, I am left with many questions unanswered. What are the changes most of us will experience and what are some clues as to help us navigate this unknown new world? It is also important to note that every being on the planet is evolving, each in our own time; one does not have to be part of a `knowing' clique or `gang' to experience and surf these changes successfully.
Canfield suggests we focus on 5 questions to give us a sense of direction as we undertake this `conscious evolution'. While great questions for a life purpose seminar, I wonder about their value as one experiences one's life turning upside down and inside out --- feeling confused and overwhelmed, needing to race just to keep up with life's basic demands, undergoing physical changes that are not easily explained (needing less sleep, feeling sick but not being ill, getting rashes than have no explanation), experiencing emotional shifts that leave one bewildered, undirected and off-balance, having new psychic abilities that surprise and even shock (sensing the unseen and heretofore unheard of) and despite all that feeling that life is somehow better, richer, deeper and more meaningful...
It is my experience that our current transformation is leading us toward a kind of bridge state in which we have one foot in the physical third dimension and one foot in the world of the subtle realms beyond the veil. Haven't you been experiencing more coincidences, more synchronicities, more intutitive knowing, more media shows on psychic phenomenon? I know I have.
By all means, let us join together and celebrate the positive changes that are coming; I wholeheartedly support global events to achieve coherence, to raise consciousness and to shape the future, but is that enough or is there a larger responsibility on the shoulders of those, like Canfield, who have gone before? What is this conscious evolution that is taking place? Is it a physical evolution? If so, how will our bodies or our environment change? Is it an energetic evolution? If so, what does that mean? How will this conscious evolution differ from the evolutionary steps in the past? What will we experience? Will it hurt? Will it be scary? Will it make our lives better? Who can guide us on this new path? Teaching about synchronicity and calling for action and celebrating the changes are the barest beginning... Multi-Dimensional You: Exploring Energetic EvolutionYour Multi-Dimensional Workbook: Exercises for Energetic Awakening
The power of the concept coupled with Jack Canfield and Bill Gladstone's masterful writing gives readers a very satisfying way to embrace the coming new age. A must read for any transformation you hope for yourself and your family in 2012.

The spirit of this book is based on an invitation for us all to become members of this 'club' which has as its main aim for as many people across the globe to focus on world peace for one `magical' day next year. Whilst the aim is honourable, this is spoilt by the continual ego trip of the authors and constant endorsements of their friends in the club. Here's the thing....most members of my `Motorcycle Gang' strive to focus on the positive every day and do not feel the need to shout about this from the rooftops.
