5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect book to read after the Secret, 10. Mai 2015
I bought this book because I am going through a terrible period in my life. First I read The Secret but when times get really tough you need constant inspiration not to let the mood turn into negativity so while browsing through Amazon I came across this book. My first impression was bad: too many repetitions, not much substance but as I continued reading (I am not the type of person who gives up on a book without first reading it from cover to cover… I even read cookbooks). As I read on I started to discover more and more additions to The Secret and also very important exercises. Just before I finished reading it I had ordered one for someone who has become a dear friend of mine through this ordeal and I hope that it will arrive soon.

The thing with living the Law of Attraction is that you need to be constantly reminded of it and in the beginning it is easy to fall back into your old ways so keep reading, keep watching Youtube videos, find out if that is a Law of Attraction Group where you live….. I have now vowed to start my own Facebook page on the subject where I can review books, inspire others and get inspired by them! This is a very powerful book and I am about to start reading another of Jack Canfield’s books …… which I hope won’t be a repetition of this one but when I bought them I didn’t see the they both were written by the same person. I am now making a list of 101 goals I want to fulfil during my lifetime (I am almost 58 but there is still plenty of time), I think that I have finally figured out my purpose in life (funny enough something I never thought that I was cut out to do) and much more. As Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Just take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step!”. And as Jack Canfield says at the end of the book…. “This is the key to unlocking the Law of Attraction. This is the key to your future!”, and I will add: May this be the key to a very bright future for your benefit and the benefit of all beings!!!! And if people tell you that is it all rubbish? Let them… we can’t change them but we can change ourselves and through all this very trying time I found out that there were a lot of people in my life I have no use for whatsoever and hopefully those who are left over and the new people I have come to know are very precious in making me into who I am and whom I want to be! May peace and abundance be with you!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not impressed....., 28. April 2015
I picked up this book in a bookshop and decided to give it a try as it was very cheap. So far I haven't finished it but I am struggling to get through it. This not one of the books that has really inspired me. I intend to finish reading it but again I am now wowed by it. It has a lot of repetitions and seems quite shallow, never quite getting to the point. If I change my mind I will update this review but in the meanwhile I am reading another book as I am in need of real inspiration! This is my first approach to NLP and so far the author repeats over and over again the fact that one should copy someone else an that's pretty much it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not the most inspirational book I have read so far!, 22. April 2015
I bought this book because I am going through a terrible period in my life and need sources of inspiration. My counsellor had talked to me about Mindfulness and so had my GP, therefore I decided to give it a try. I think that there are some good points in it but is it the book that has inspired me the most lately? Not really. The author is clearly very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about Mindfulness and although I think that I need to live more in the present, especially right now, there are other things I need like having goals that I aspire to outside of this storm that I seem to be living with 24/7.

The concept that others are very well as they are has its merits but in a relationship, especially in an intimate one, I think that we have to grow towards one another without coercion but because you want to become a stronger couple. In my case I was being abused and of course I could have ended the relationship right there but I chose to stay and to work at ending the abuse and bringing the relationship back to the wonderful relationship it was once upon a time. Ok, it didn’t work but at least I don’t feel that I didn’t try.

As far as humans attacking those closest to them the author is forgetting lions, for example, where the males will kill the little ones because they want to be fed first or want undivided attention from their mate. There is a lot of cruelty in the animal world too, the only difference is that we have a brain that should tell us how to live differently while animals rely solely on their instinct. I also don’t believe that all our suffering is created by us, sometimes we are caught in situations we can’t easily get out of. On chapter 7 the author tells us how we create this unhappiness and he goes on to say that our mind will start to rebel against his ideas, which mine did, and implies that it is because we are not taking his suggestions on board. I still believe that sometimes we have to put up a fight so that we can move on to a happier life. That said… we have to pick up our fights carefully, otherwise our lives become hell and we will be indeed creating our own unhappiness! As far as the concept that it is wrong to expect other people to change in order for you to be happy, as I said, in some cases that is necessary or else people should go separate ways. That said I have never got into a relationship expecting someone else to change for me, but due to the abuse either he chose to change or else the relationship had to end, after I had lived with it for far too long! That said… I really have to do some of the exercises and try to stop my mind from going over terrible events day and night! I have thought long and hard about everything and it is time now that I put my mind to rest for my own sanity!

As far as the projections and fantasies about the future… I much prefer the approach of the law of attraction. Plan what you want then let it rest and wait for the Universe to do the rest! What I don’t want to do is to stop living the now in order to wait for what may come!

4.0 von 5 Sternen I got good inspiration out of this book!, 19. April 2015
I bought this book because I am going through a very traumatic period in my life and living in the UK the amount of mental health care one gets on the NHS is so limited that I needed to find some other source of inspiration also because I came to be here all by myself and as I said copying with very severe problems. This book is one of a series of books that I have been reading and which make me see the positives in a very negative time. As I read Gill Edward's Living Magically, before this book I must say that I preferred that book but that is a personal opinion. Susan Jeffers also gives very good guidance and I will surely keep this book somewhere within easy reach so that I can refer back to it. There is one thing which I don't appreciate but which is used often nowadays to fill pages: the constant mention of what is to come in later chapters. One would assume that we will all read the book till the end so whatever comes in the later chapters will be read too, no need to keep referring to it. That said there are a number of exercises I want to build into my daily life like going to sleep with positive affirmations, having a good cry regularly, start living more in the NOW and not always waiting for something to happen in the future, learning that I am good enough as I am, etc. More difficult is to learn to accept that it is all happening perfectly, although I have gone through terrible times in my life only to find out later that actually it was all for the best! I also have to learn to picture the outcome I would like to have in a certain situation and then let go and let things happen. I have seen that work in my life several times but it isn't easy, even though I am not at all a controlling person. We have also to learn to believe that if things don't work just as we would like them to, in the end they sometimes surpass our expectations!

I like Susan's view on the Western society, she is spot on. Too bad many of us don't manage to see the reality of our lives because we have been blinded but if we did, maybe we would all be a lot happier! I need to ask my Higher Self more often: 'Where would you have me go', 'What would you have me do' and 'What would you have me say and to whom'. Susan, who had cancer in the past says that she has learned that illness often comes from negative emotions and although I partially agree with her, I think that maybe the pollution all around us, the bad food we eat, all the chemicals which seem to be everywhere, the water we drink, maybe cause more illnesses than just negative feelings. And'. Isn't it possible that the bad lifestyles also cause us to feel bad which in turn causes illness? Just dealing with illness in a positive way may change the outcome but isn't going to change the world. Maybe the answer is fighting to change our sick lifestyles.

She is right in saying that we can't just live our lives waiting for what is going to come around the corner. I have seen someone very close to me live waiting for his retirement, only to find out that retirement wasn't what he thought it was and in the process wreck his life and mine so' live in the present and make the most out of what you have! Somehow I have always tried to do that. I don't always succeed but after a brief struggle I have always managed to adapt and make the most out of the situation I am in. Susan put into words something that maybe sums up the society we live in: 'Logic is the death of that part of you that is the miracle maker'. This short sentence should make us think'. And maybe change the way we live our lives! The way Susan centres herself before she starts addressing a big audience is also remarkable and something I want to implement in my life. The use of the chi energy is very interesting and although I haven't tried it yet it is something I want to try. The idea of having a gratitude buddy or group where you only talk about all the things you are grateful for is amazing, the difficulty is to find such a person or persons! The concept of the 'dantien' is also very interesting and a way to feel more centred. At a time in my life when I feel a lot of hatred directed at me I use the 'dantien' saying: 'I love you' and so dilute that hatred. So far it hasn't really worked, at least not that I know of, but I will keep trying!

I wish this book had a better index by key words so that you would find some of the concepts more easily. All on all worth reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very tiny but powerful!, 16. April 2015
Ravpower asked me to test this battery which I did because I love their products and this battery came in very handy indeed. This is a tiny battery which only weighs 75g, so you can easily fit it in your pocket or in a small handbag. Anyway, this battery has a capacity of 3200mAh so it will really be a big help in case you have forgotten to charge your devices or have used them more than you were counting on and find out that they have run out of charge, which is always very annoying. Instead of going around asking everybody if they have a charging cable you now use your own little power bank!

The battery came very well packed as Ravpower has got us used to. It also makes a very nice present. In the package you find the battery, the instructions manual in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and I think Japanese and the cable to charge the battery and also to charge many of your devices (for Apple devices you have to use their own cable as you can see on the photo where I am charging my iPod Nano).

This battery also comes with a pocket light. Just imagine, you go camping and have no way of charging your devices but on the top of that you also have no light source whatsoever so… you use this battery for the charge and also to find your way around! Perfect……. It could even save your life or almost! One never knows…..

The first thing I did was to charge the battery because I always do that with any new product. When the LED lights went off I knew that the battery was ready to charge my iPod. It is recommended that you charge such batteries when they are at 50% of their charge. In order to see how much charge you have left you have to press the power button once, if you press it twice it will turn on the pocket light. Also make sure that you charge the battery at least twice a year in case you don’t use it a lot. The warranty is of 12 months from the date of purchase.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I am really very happy with this battery!, 16. April 2015
I was asked by the vendor to test this battery and I was very happy to oblige because I am very happy with the products Ravpower I own. The battery arrived very well packed as I am used to with all the products Ravpower (they also make very original gifts). This one is in between two others I own and at the same time light enough to take everywhere in your handbag (180g) but suitable to charge your devices without a problem. The battery came with a connection cable and also an instruction manual in English, French, Italian, Spanish and I believe also Japanese (sorry but I am not able to read those characters!).

This battery is very easy to use. To start with I charged it by connecting it with the cable that came in the box and waited for the LED lights to go off. Then I connected it to my mobile phone and did the very same thing. Due to the Smart technology I know that my devices will never get more charge then they need and they will charge a lot faster than with a normal charger like a laptop. If you want to charge an Apple device please make use of their own cable. If the charge doesn’t start automatically make use of the power button. The same button can be used to see how much charge there still is in the battery. They advise you to charge the battery when it gets to 50% of the charge or twice a year in case you don’t use it for a long time (which I am sure you will!). The battery can get slightly warm while it is charging a device but that is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. Anyway, at the end of the instructions you have the contact details for Ravpower so in case of questions or problems please contact them. The battery comes with an 18 month warranty counting from the date of purchase. All in all I couldn’t be happier so I can fully advise the purchase of this battery!

5.0 von 5 Sternen My friend couldn't be happier!, 16. April 2015
I offered this hands free Bluetooth car kit to a friend who has an AUX connection in her car and she couldn’t be happier. Now she can listen to the music she has in her phone, iPod, etc through the sound system of her car and when a call comes through she can take it too and speaks through the microphone of the car kit! The sound is CD quality!

The kit came very well packaged as it is always a rule with Taotronics and included also an instruction manual but actually it is so simple to use that you don’t even need any instructions, only in case you are not used to paring devices, etc. In any case it is always useful to read the instructions as they might include some details you might not have thought of. In case your Smartphone supports NFC paring this is then done automatically, in case it doesn’t the paring takes only a few seconds anyway. It is very handy that you can pair two devices at the same time as we often have our music in more than one device. As a safety measure you can speak without having to aim the sound at the device and the person calling you will hear the sound clearly anyway. Also all the normal car noise will be reduced. You can also charge your devices using this kit, one device at a time because the other port is used to charge the kit.

To connect it it is very simple, you connect the car charger into the cigarette lighter, then connect the pin connection to the AUX. and either glue or use the magnet to fix the microphone to your car. In the package you also find the car charger, the hands free receiver, of course, and the necessary cables.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Written for the masses but still worth reading!, 10. April 2015
I came across this book in a bookstore but decided against buying it because it seemed to be permanently quoting other people which seemed rather odd. Then talking to my hairdresser she told me that she had bought it and was going to start reading it. On my way home, a few doors down from the hairdressing salon there is a charity shop and I decided to go in although not looking for anything in particular. First I had a look in the cookbook section but there was nothing that appealed to me and anyway I don’t need any more cookbooks, then I looked up to the spirituality section and to my surprise right in front of me was The Secret. As the price was right I had to buy it. When I started reading I was slightly disappointed as it felt like the law of attraction for dummies but as I read on I started to get more and more interested and in the end I think that I took quite a few teachings from this book that although written for the masses and a bit sensationalist will inspire you on your way to a new and better lifestyle. This is not the first book I have read on the subject of changing your life and attracting what you want instead of struggling with what you don’t want and it won’t be the last. I have come through terrible periods in my life and I have seen startling things happen but I had never quite grasped how or why they happen. Now I am much more in a state to take control of my life and to use my mind in a much more positive way. Not being that young anymore I too had incredible stories to tell but now that I have embarked on a new spirituality I think that I will have many more, wait and see! Anyway, instead of waking up in a nightmare as I did for much of the past year now I wake up cheerful waiting for all the wonders that I am going to be blessed with! So far so good………. By continuing reading on the subject I hope to go on inspiring myself to go on to bigger and better things!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice, 7. April 2015
I bought this brow mascara because after plucking my brows for a number of years (stupid thing to do because otherwise my brows would be very fashionable now) they are now too thin and also because I had an accident at a child hitting my brow against a door so in the place of the wound no brows grow anymore. I was a bit disappointed not so much with the size of the brush like other people because I still have enough brows although it is true that it could have been smaller but the fact that the container feels quite empty. I know that one doesn’t use much but when I take out the brush it feels that there is hardly anything inside. That said one uses very little so it won’t maybe be a problem. I have had it for a while no and it is still going…… we will see how long it lasts!

3.0 von 5 Sternen One needs to use quite a bit in order to get a nice colour!, 5. April 2015
I don’t usually use food colouring but as I am getting more into decorating of cupcakes and making chocolates I bought a few of these gels. I find that the green doesn’t colour much although when you see the drops on the butter cream it seems like one or two drops will be enough but that is not so. You really need to use quite a bit so it becomes quite expensive. I used it also with white chocolate and it works well, the chocolate didn’t seize or anything and as the quantity was smaller than the butter cream it didn’t take too much to get a nice green hue. The amount of butter cream was enough to cover 10 cupcakes so not a huge amount either. I have no idea why it took so much to get a nice pistachio colour……
