Publisher's Summary

Over 30 years ago, a small band of people began an intentional community called Findhorn. They lived by applying principles of attracting to oneself, through love, whatever materials, energy, or help were needed to promote wholeness or further growth.
David Spangler, who was one of those early residents of Findhorn, began writing down how those laws worked. In 1975, his writings were first published as The Laws of Manifestation. This long-unavailable book is now available again with a new introduction by the author.
Spangler shows how we can all transform our lives by working with these natural laws. In clear and lucid prose, he recounts the history of manifestation and how to grow in spiritual riches (the most important of all) in a step-by-step guide to enlightenment. While other experts in this suddenly burgeoning field tend toward applying manifesting energy toward real estate, money, and material goods, Spangler looks at the basis of what he describes as a change of form, or state, or condition of being, NOT creating something out of nothing.

Talking in circles

What would have made The Laws of Manifestation better?

I think the author should have clearly stated the steps or laws of how to manifest your interests. He states something then contradicts himself in the next paragraph.
Sort of like "The ways to manifest are clear. First you must do A and B but don't do A then B or you will lose the power and cause havic in your life." See nonsense! I was confused the whole time and had to keep rewinding thinking maybe I zoned out and didn't catch a critical part. But no the author just made every phrase, sentence, and story seem vital and mysterious. It wears you out!


Has The Laws of Manifestation turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all. I love self-development but unfortunately you get a few who talk in circles and blame the reader if you get no results or don't understand him.


Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes though a bit fast in ways.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really. A few insightful sentences but not worth the time invested.


Any additional comments?

I had high hopes for this book. While the things I wish to manifest are material, this author seems to bash material wealth and "stuff" as a bad thing to request from God. He suggests that my so-called "personality mind " is selfish and wrong for desiring material wealth and manifestation, stating that these things aren't what we need to be requesting. We should request things that are more so need and wants for the good of the group. I think if you want to manifest something you should examine why you would like it and what you would do with it. I agree it's important not to be selfish wanting material things, and that what we want only manifests if it's good for everyone involved in the process. For example getting a nice watch or a better house isn't only beneficial to the individual it's good for those who work to make the home or product it's good for the people who admire the beauty of the item also. This material item may be someone's inspiration to start a business which benfits millions of people bringing them wealth and happiness as well as to those invoved. Thereby justifying his theories on the laws of manifestation.

With regard to the word use and structure of the collection of lectures and material, it was sooooo difficult to get through that it's taken me two weeks to even barely understand the begining intro of the laws (which isn't in chapter 1 by the way). Such a waist of time for the average person even slightly enlightened person.

What I gathered from the book is that "higher thinking" means that you shouldn't want to have the things you wish and dream for , just the feeling that you have them, the essence.. and that's just silly.

Classic on the evolution of consciousness

The writing, content and story for The Laws of Manifestation are thoughtfully and articulately expressed by mystic and contemplative, David Spangler. A refreshing reflection on the role of the self, the earth consciousness, the soul and the Sacred in refining the art of manifestation.

The only drawback for me was the mispronunciation of Findhorn, the spiritual community in Scotland from which this text emerged. Since it was an essential experience to the writing of the book, Findhorn is mentioned many times over, and the correct pronunciation is something the voice talent should have researched.
