A Second Look - Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting

Note: This is another "law of attraction" book - one that I read a few years ago. Since The Secret has brought so much awareness to this concept, I thought I'd republish this post from August, 2005. lgp

This book by Lynn Grabhorn explores "the astonishing power of feelings." And while I agree that how you feel impacts your behavior, the author's premise is that "we create by feeling, not by thought." Let her explain:
" . . . the energy that flows out from us comes from our highly charged emotions to create highly charged electromagnetic wave patterns of energy, making us powerful - but volatile - walking magnets. . . . The electromagnetic vibrations you send out every split second of every day are what have brought - and are continuing to bring - everything into your life, big or small, good or bad. Everything! No exceptions." (p. 8, emphases hers)
While discovering some great nuggets in Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting, I also found that, like most self-help books with a gnostic bent, the author leaves an independent acting and thinking and feeling (emphasis mine) God out of the equation. End result, a self-as-central view of reality. Myopic and unsatisfying.
