by Wayne W. Dyer Quill, 2001 Review by Lisa Perkins on Sep 27th 2002
"I feel as if I have gone through a gate which
will not allow me to go back to the place where I used to live." So opens You'll
See It When You Believe It by Wayne W. Dyer. Intrigued? I was and couldn't
help but read on.
Dyer explains in this well-written book how we are
the purveyors of our own destinies, if only we would believe. Interspersed with
logic and honesty are Biblical quotes pertaining to individual passages in the
Chapters one and two deal with how transformation
and thought will benefit the reader. Dyer states that with your internal
transformation, "life will become a fascinating journey, filled with joy
and awe." Chapter two explains why we resist change in our lives and how
we can overcome this resistance and break out of our single-mindedness.
In chapter three, titled "Oneness," Dyer
defines oneness as recognition of humanity as a "beautifully harmonious
song..." He demonstrates how we fit into this oneness and that by seeing
this we are beginning our journey into transformation. This chapter is filled
with information. Dyer is very open about how he altered his life with the very
exercises he suggests the reader tries.
In chapter four, Dyer talks about abundance. He tells
how transcending your ideas and negative thoughts, you can have abundance in
your life. Dyer also gives suggestions about bringing abundance into the
readers life. Chapter five is about detachment, and how being able to detach
yourself from certain things in life can make your life more fulfilling. Dyer
also recommends ways you can apply detachment in your life.
Chapter six deals with synchronicity in life, and
tells the easiest and most difficult connections in life. He also explains how
our connections affect other people and their lives. As in other chapters, Dyer
explains how to apply synchronicity in the readers life.
This final chapter is on forgiveness. Dyer explains
the concept of forgiveness and how to rid yourself of blame, revenge, and
judgment so that forgiveness is a large factor in your life.Dyer explains that learning and using all of
these thought processes will transform your life. At the end of each chapter, Dyer
gives examples and suggests simple exercises using the principles learned in
Dyer has an easy style to read and You'll Believe
It When You See It has inspired me to believe and transform my own life.
