By Ryan J. Dejonghe TOP 1000 REVIEWER on October 23, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
YOUR HIDDEN RICHES is not a re-packaging of THE SECRET or E-SQUARED, but it does take me away from my more recent thought-dumping exercises and moves me into something more structured. In other words, instead of a meditation, focusing on just breathing, the authors focus more on visualization that borders on the name-it-claim-it philosophy. You just won’t be talking to cacti or moving coat hangers with your mind (see those other books referenced).

The authors present a delicate balance of psychology and philosophy to achieve a little something for everyone. Each chapter shares personal stories of people seeking relationships, or money, or health, or whatever other common need/want there may be. Following these stories are the rituals. These aren’t séances, but rather habitual strategies set to focus your mind. For example, someone seeking a life partner could leave an open drawer in their dresser, anticipating someone soon moving in.

The key here: rituals don’t bind, they liberate. These aren’t “watch the clock and schedule” strategies, but rather life changes meant to produce desired and worthy results. Sure, some may decry that some of these are strange particulars, but I promise you that there is something worthwhile here for you. For me, I specifically enjoy the visualization of pink-colored energy flowing out of my heart, enveloping those people I may have difficulty understanding. Whether that pink energy is real or not, attitudes change when colored as such.

I also appreciate the authors’ liberty in citing other comparative works. For instance, I enjoyed learning about Byron Kate’s The Work. There, we learn to ask if something is true, what happens when we believe that thought it true, and who we become without that thought.

Fantastic book! If you've ever wondered what the rituals of high performance athletes and top leaders are (and how to apply them in your life), 'Your Hidden Riches' gives you the answers. Through this book, Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood make the valuable distinction between a habits (which are easily broken) and rituals, which are far more meaningful, ingrained and last a lifetime. I really like the way they give not just the stories but the process to follow to create your own rituals to live by. Five stars!

As a clinical psychologist I am well aware of the amazing effect that Janet and Chris Attwood have had enriching peoples’ lives with their first book The Passion Test, a New York Times best seller, and through their powerful workshops based on that book. Now the Attwood’s have stepped up their game another notch with Your Hidden Riches: Unleashing the Power of Ritual to Create a Life of Meaning and Purpose. In a recent article in the Scientific American (May 14, 2013) psychologists Francesca Gino and Michael Norton have reported, “Rituals have real benefits.” They go onto describe a series of psychological investigations “that have revealed intriguing new results demonstrating that rituals can have a causal impact on people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.” Hidden Riches: Unleashing the Power of Ritual covers all the right bases -- from how to discover rituals that have deeply personal meaning for you, how to find the right time and rhythm to fit them into your life, and how to use them to enrich your health, your wellbeing, your relationships, and your daily experience. The tools described are well researched, easy to apply, and provide an immediate and powerful benefit. I have used many of them with clients in my clinical psychology practice and in my own life for years. If you are interested in adding more meaning, depth, and purpose to your life, Hidden Riches might be just the right path to take you in that direction. Bruce Hutchison, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist

LOVE this book. Read it on one long flight. I wanted to create more ritual in my life and this book provided a treasure chest of ideas. Just the book I was looking for to design more meaningful connection on a daily basis with my mind, body and spirit.

This book must be good--somebody stole it! It had really good ideas for the use of everyday rituals. The only thing I'd noticed, as far as I'd gotten into it, was that rather than encouraging any connection with the Divine (however you describe that), the rituals were very contemporary-life based, e.g. for more money, better health, a happy family etc That was disappointing for someone who was looking for both perspectives. Worth it if what they offer is what you want.

I received a complementary copy of this book for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

My intention is to be led by my spirit, and not my ego, in life. Easier said than done. Until I read Your Hidden Riches: Unleashing the Power of Ritual to Create a Life of Meaning and Purpose I didn't realize the value of ritual to connect to my spiritual side. Authors Janet Bray Atwood and Chris Atwood have created a wonderful guide for recognizing and practicing ritual in our day to day lives.

"Your hidden potential is woven into the secret patterning of your life," say the authors. "The answers to your deepest questions and most cherished hopes aren't somewhere outside you. Life is the answer to life. You must connect with that part of you where these answers, your riches, lie." How to do that? Through ritual, they believe.

In reading Hidden Riches I became aware of behaviors I do often - I just didn't call them "rituals". My meditation practice, for example, is a personal ritual. More than just a new label for a common behavior, though, the book reaffirmed the value of my meditation practice to me, and encouraged me to be more consistent with it. A ritual, after all, is not done haphazardly, but is repeated in a regular pattern.

Rituals do not have to be lofty spiritual practices, either. I liked how the authors gave examples of other types of rituals. One parent, for instance, asks three questions to her five year old as a bed time ritual:

"What is the best thing that happened to you today? What was the worst thing that happened to you today? What was the silliest thing that happened to you today?
