The author thinks mystics have always been real great sages of ages past from all cultures who understand the wisdom acquired from the instinctual use of the mind , and the author thinks psychics of all kinds are real and can tap into the subjective consciousness, the part of the mind that contains the soul and contains our memories and can be accessed by using deduction, the necessary Laws that flow from the universe's God's existence. Spirit is that which becomes self aware and is not soul, the soil that allows the Spirit to be actualized.
There's definitely a large self-help component to this book. People who have been through bad experiences and need a helping hand will definitely be able to embrace this book with its positive mental attitude approach but they first would have to wade through some of the compact language and pseudoscience contained in the book. I suspect that's why people give this book such high ratings. I liked his attitude on good habits and why they matter so keenly in making us who we become, "first the man takes a drink, then the drink takes the drink, and then the drink takes the man".
The prayers or meditations in the end of the book probably would work for people who are at their wits end and feel they can't take it anymore. To get to the meat of the book, one does have to wade through a lot of psychobabble 'constipation is about recognizing ones freedom", I would say that it's about fiber, but immediately following that he says something intelligent about people with low self worth and how to realize that it is not real. So one has got to take the good with the bad with this book.
This book provides a different spin on Christianity.
In my opinion, a more refreshing look, and he is not bad with his philosophy, but there is a lot of babble from the time period he writes which he accepts. I would be fairly certain there are people this book could help, but it is not a science book whatsoever and does have a whole lot of psychobabble with it. View 2 comments.

The book started off well enough, taking me on a journey through Christian beliefs in the spirit, soul, and body as they are related to the Holy Trinity Father, Holy spirit, Son. Then it made some great assertions that we choose our outlook on life and that we are in total control of any outcome that may befall us. For these great concepts, I'd give the book 5 stars. The reason it earns two stars is because of the constant repetition of the same thing and the pointless religious babble.
Babble The book started off well enough, taking me on a journey through Christian beliefs in the spirit, soul, and body as they are related to the Holy Trinity Father, Holy spirit, Son. Babble might be a harsh word but it does it justice when the other repeatedly says things like "God is all and all is God". These type of sayings could have filled up 25 pages of this book.

The real issue started when he began delving into levitation, psychics, fortune tellers, apparitions, etc.. At that point this book turned into an Encyclopedia of Witchcraft. Author claims he has personal had conversations with mysterious voices that "did not know where they came from" and that he has personally seen a pencil writing while floating in midair "with no one holding it". Then with his other mystical claims, he admits that there is no research on it but he assumes that one day we will find proof for how these things happen.
There is no science in this book whatsoever. Science includes experiments, trials, data, anything! The whole book is conceived of his own personal beliefs and him validating that it is "Fact".

I don't remember how it got on my list, but once started, I felt I had to train wreck through it. I've read a number of real mind science books in the last couple of years and this this is a simply a largely Christian religious text with a few scientific mentions in it.

It's unfair to ding Holmes for a s perspective, and it's unfair to pick on the non-science as this is clearly religious. His examples of something as simple as inductive and deductive reasoning are wrong, but sound convincing. I made a lot of notes, but after a while it became comical, so I decided to give up.
Some of the gems is this one: Take electricity as an example; we know that there is such a thing as electricity; we have never seen it, but we know that it exists because we can use it; That logic evades me - we can make predictions about electricity, and test those predictions It is known that certain people can read our thoughts, even when we are not aware of the fact Um, wow.
The conscious mind controls the subconscious; and in its turn, the subconscious controls the body. Really no. Dude, there is no "must" Non sequitur. Psycho-analysis is a system of analyzing the soul, or the subjective mentality. It is a mental process of diagnosis which seems to be technically perfect when used by those who understand it.
Because psycho-analysis is an absolute science. Strange as it may seem, we do not have the same physical bodies that we had a few months ago; they have completely changed; new particles have taken the place of the old; and the only reason why they have taken the same form is, that Instinctive Man has provided the same mold. No comment necessary. So, I was a bit surprised to learn that the mythical Biblical?
I was also unaware that "very few diseases are inherited". I'll chalk that up to a understanding of genetics. I think I should qualify this review I looked up comments on other editions and learned that this may have been an abridged version.
I can't imagine plowing through anything longer. This is a tortuous read. Holmes is all over the map here and doubles back on himself throughout. He obviously believed he was coherent. He wasn't. I didn't like this, but not enough to rate it one-star. Jun 12, Alia rated it it was amazing. Bless the heart of this author! This book to me was and still is a guide that is helping me in my life. When I got hold of this book, I was going through a tough time in my life trying to find happiness with myself while at the same time trying to to prove myself to those i loved most.
This book taught me how to deal with the most difficult situation with Spiritual help. One cannot read this book if you do not believe in God or are not Spiritual in any kind of way.

It goes well beyond the ideal of mere wealth attainment, generously spilling over into concepts such as God and divine purpose. If you've been left empty-handed by more recent "Law of Attraction" books, this book will explain why!
