My favorite book
Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2018
This is my favorite book I've ever read. I liked it so much that I'm now going to read more Esther and Jerry Hicks (Abraham) books from the Law of Attraction Series. The first book I read of a "spiritual" sort was The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. After that I read many others. I read many from the Eastern religions. Eventually I read many of the Seth books. While I got a lot out of many of those books, Ask and It Is Given is my favorite.
What I liked about it so much is that its message is simple, clear, extremely positive, true, verifiable, and massively helpful. I would go as far as saying that the content of this book (an explanation of how to feel good in this Law of Attraction-based existence) is the most important thing anyone could learn and put into practice. Let me give you some of the main ideas from the book. The only thing that matters is how you feel, and you have control over how you feel. Even how much you can benefit others is determined by how you feel, so your attention must be on how you feel. You choose how you feel based on what you are doing with your energy - allowing well-being to flow or resisting well-being. Well-being is always predominant, so the quality of any experience is determined by the degree to which you allow well-being to flow freely. What you give attention to, what you think about, and what you focus on determines how you feel, and how you feel determines what kinds of experiences you have. Bodily health, financial circumstances, relationship situations, and all other details of physical life are faithful reflections of how you feel. The only thing that really matters is paying attention to the way you feel, and allowing your energy to flow in a way that feels good to you.
The emphasis on learning from life by listening to your own emotional guidance system and responding to that is refreshing. For the longest time, some part of me just wanted to read something that told me to pay attention to how I feel and choose to feel good. This book makes it that simple, and it is that simple.
I heartily recommend Ask and It Is Given to anyone considering giving it a read. Enjoy it.
