Book Description

Nov. 2 2010
Easy to use, enjoyable to read, and proven effective, this is a revolutionary new method for taking advantage of the “law of attraction” drawn from the legendary Master Key System.
Thanks to such books as Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich and the recent best-selling The Secret, millions of people now realize that success comes from more than just chance, fate, good connections, or even hard work. At the same time, these volumes don't offer a practical daily process for attaining your goals-and that's exactly what Tapping the Source provides. It teaches a daily method that stimulates the process for manifesting your dreams outlined in The Secret. These techniques can be applied to any aspect of life, from sex to career to creativity. Just “tap into the source”-daily Manifestation Sessions, each totaling no more than three to five minutes-and live the life you want!

The genesis of the ideas in Tapping the Source-which are a natural extension of the concepts expounded upon in The Secret-is Charles Haanel's classic 1912 work, The Master Key System. Although Napoleon Hill is popularly considered the father of the “law of attraction,” a letter from Hill to Charles Haanel, reproduced in Tapping the Source, thanks Haanel for his illuminating ideas. The letter is dated 1919, 18 years before Think and Grow Rich was published.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life instruction manual. Dec 20 2010
By Ruby Bayan - Published on Amazon.com
Wouldn't it be great if life had an instruction manual? Fortunately, every now and then, someone writes a book that gives us, in no uncertain terms, step-by-step instructions on how to achieve success and happiness in life. "Tapping the Source" is that type of book.

"Tapping the Source" starts with how authors Gladstone, Greninger, and Selby serendipitously collaborate to expound on the wisdom of the Master Key System introduced by Charles Haanel in the early 1900s. Haanel had shared how meditation, manifestation, and being one with the Universal Mind (also known as Creative Spirit, Infinite Creator, or Divine) can influence the people and events around us into making our aspirations come true.

What makes "Tapping the Source" stand out from other self-help books is it draws from an expert who has been the role model of many successful businessmen and personalities over the past century. The book's authors, themselves, use Haanel's secrets in their own lives. Here, they present these secrets in practical, present-day, layman's terms, for regular people like us to use.

The book quotes Haanel extensively. The authors elaborate on Haanel's teachings and translate them into a manifestation process anchored on seven focus phrases that we can utter several times a day. This manifestation process works around the Law of Attraction, the secret of giving, the power of positive thinking, and direct communication with the Source. It may all sound nebulous, but the authors succeeded in presenting Haanel's concepts and teachings in clear and concise terms.

"Tapping the Source" is a life instruction manual. The manifestation logic and the actionable focus phrases serve as a blueprint for fulfilling our desires, achieving our goals, and tapping into the power of the Divine. This book empowers its reader with insights, awareness, and various mental tools to build material, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual perfection. In fact, this book takes away whatever possible excuse we may have to not succeed in life. - Ruby Bayan, OurSimpleJoys.com

3.0 out of 5 stars A particular take on Haanel May 29 2012
By lsur - Published on Amazon.com
I was a bit disappointed with this book. I subscribe to Haanel's original ideas and the whole Attraction/Abundance/Manifestation philosophy. While it was interesting to revisit Haanel, I did find this particular take a bit irritating.

The bulk of the book is by John Selby and I welcomed the frequent quotes from Haanel's original. However, neither Selby nor his co-authors give very much idea of how they have used Haanel in their own lives, other than coming to it after being succesful and then agreeing with some of his principles in hindsight. I don't think the book is anything other than genuine in it's intent. The Attraction 'business' is worth trillions after all and one sometimes wonders whether writing about it is more lucrative than actually doing it. Nevertheless, in this case, 'rags-to riches' would have been more convincing.

The method given is also somewhat hard to accept. If you introduce modern cognitive psychology into anything it's more than likely that you will end up with a rationalisation of how it could work at the loss of the original 'irrational' basis, a series of tricks to wrongfoot the conscious mind. The proposed idea of being aware of one's breathing as a ready route to a receptive state of mind is not well grounded in my view (and likely to lead to mildly compulsive obsession with breathing, hardly relaxing). It is certainly not neccessary nor special as any book on self-hypnosis will give you the same results (Try Jose Silva's Mind Control books for example and many others.) I also found the tone mildly hectoring rather than offering a view for the reader to consider before adopting.

Once into this receptive state, one is told that ideas and inspiration will come and that these can be taken back to the normal waking state and acted on. This is the apparent basis for the manifestation of one's goals. I am sure that ideas and inspiration are effective in changing one's life. It just seems too rational though.

I would like to suggest that the true basis of manifestation is indeed 'irrational' and that there is a name for it. It is called 'Magic' and even Haanel's semi-scientific language doesn't go too far from that. I especially like the way he recognises a divine Source above it all. The subconscious is our means to this Source and any method not accessing It is likely to go wrong sooner or later. The characteristic of manifestation using the Source is that it happens effortlessly and in surprising ways. There is very little conscious effort such as willpower, hard-nosed focus, gritting of teeth and hanging on through thick and thin, regardless of your life collapsing around you. Instead, just imagine the goal in detail and then forget it, allowing the unconscious and the Source behind it to work.

This is not 'rational' nor should it be. Indeed, any goal beyond the end of one's nose will be irrational insofar as you cannot see how it will be obtained. All the better, as the rational mind will then have no handle with which to hinder the progress.

Whilst Belief and Imagination are two elements, I would suggest a third. This is the control and sublimation of sex. This is a central issue in Daoist alchemy and I cannot see how the European alchemists would not have know it too. The goal is visualised in detail and gestates as a foetus in amniotic fluid. It manifestes in it's own time. The process is one of Resonance, as with sympathetic strings on a guitar. Another metaphor used by historical alchemists was that of agriculture. Plant in the right way (the moon plays a part in this), tend the crops carefully and allow to grow. You are not looking every five minutes to see if it is growing. The fruits will drop into your lap when ready.

In brief then, I would take the Art and Science of Manifestation away from the rationalists and cognitive psychologists and put it back where it started, as a form of alchemy with both material and spiritual benefits.

Three stars for making me think but personally I believe I was on the right track already, without cognitive 'tricks'. If you do want a follow-up to Haanel, apart from his other books, try Wallace D Wattles 'The Science of Getting Rich' or Napoleon Hill's 'Think and Grow Rich'.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book opened my heart and mind Nov. 14 2010
By Michele - Published on Amazon.com
Being the widowed mother of three young children wasn't easy. I have always struggled with finding inner peace while trying to juggle working two jobs and living a day to day existence. My dream has been to build a healthy and stable world for my children, so of course I've read a lot of self help books and parenting books like "Raising Children who Think for Themselves" and "Raising Everyday Heroes". I even started an Amazon account as a side business to attract knowledge for self growth and hope. Through selling books on Amazon as a side hobby I always hope I will stumble upon something that gives me the true keys and tools to finding confidence and personal happiness, and fortunately when "Tapping the Source" was suggested by a dear friend I jumped at the opportunity to read it. What I learned from this book is that the only way I will be a solid and wonderful mother, a successful business woman, an aspiring artist and attentive lover is to find my own personal source of happiness. To nourish my soul and use the tools given in this book to become a whole person. I cannot thank the authors enough.. This book changed my world and I can't wait to watch the "Tapping the Source" DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars No way Jose June 16 2011
By Scooby Dude - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you want to read a story about 3 guys talking about themselves, buy this book. I wish to be supportive, but cannot allow anyone who is interested in Haanel's work to buy this book without warning. It is boring and the points are scattered. The title excited me, the book at best is mediocre. I don't normally write reviews, but half way through this book I couldn't take it any longer. I had wished there was a review warning me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just read The Master Key System Feb. 14 2014
By 11B - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I didn't take anything useful away from this book that wasn't already covered in Charles Haanel's original work. It's telling that the authors used the first 20 or so pages of the book talking about themselves and how successful they were. Yes, building confidence for the author is important, but this was to the point where I felt like they cared more about talking themselves up than truly helping the reader understand The Master Key system.

Your time will be better spent learning mindfulness meditation and reading Haanel's original work.
