As a person who's read many books on LOA, I was surprised to learn a common misconception about the law of attraction. Ms. Ricotti clarifies that spending a few hours releasing the negative emotions, be it sadness, disappointment, or anger, the sooner you can put it all behind you and allign yourself with postive energy. Spending a few hours is a lot healthier than carrying the deep-seated negative emotions with you for several months or even years. I used to fret that if I acknowledged my negative feelings, that I would attract undesirable outcomes so I used to ignore it. Thank you Ms Ricotti for that clarification.
What really resonated with me was the part about letting go of the past while retaining the "lesson." Einstein once said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." I was an example of that: somehow I always found myself attracting theiving people. The people at one point in my life always stole from me, be it monetary or something of value. I couldn't understand how I always winded up recreating the same situation. My problem was that I didn't let go of the past and it was shadowing every decision I had made. Ms Ricotti points out that we should let the lesson be an empowering one instead of one filled with negativity. Instead of saying something empowering like, "I will make better choices" I used to say: "I am a jerk magnet" and "I'm the Queen of bad luck" further reinforcing my subconscious mind with negativity. A part of me enjoyed playing the victim. That was the "lesson" I kept on repeating to myself. I knew I had to make a significant change and the change had to come from within. I began to apply the concept of the law of attraction and reprogramming my subconscious mind with positive affirmations, and stunningly, the vicious cycle stopped.
This isn't a law of attraction book, but it does incorporate LOA concepts because it is fundamental. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is going through a turbulent time. I would read this book a second time simply to re-absorb the lessons.
She didn't invent the principle, which is linked to the Law of Attraction, but it is explained in her own way. I have no doubt that this woman, author, is very professional in what she is doing and convinced by what she says.
It is just that it is treated a little lightly according to me in this book, while it is not a light subject at all.
When I saw and listened to her interview, she seemed to have crossed terrible moments, and I was relating to that, since I almost got out of terrible moments myself now.
She was saying that she lost her house, she needed surgery because she had a life-threatening condition, she discovered her soul mate was an alcoholic and so, she got separated from him and couldn't see her step-children anymore.
And when we read her book, we discover that actually, her house was not her house, but her boy-friend's house, that she actually didn't need surgery, because the problem she was supposed to have, mysteriously disappeared (?), she speaks of her step-children just like I do here, saying "step-children". Nowhere their first name, no details about them, no anecdotes, nothing, obviously this woman has no idea what it is to raise kids. We don't even know if they are girls or boys!!!
And she "discovered" her boy-friend was an alcoholic???? I don't know how she did not notice that before! And if this boy-friend didn't tell her before he was an alcoholic, it doesn't show a big trust and respect towards her... So, maybe it is better she is not with him anymore. And I am surprised that the kids are left with a man who drinks, even if it is their father.
All this is a total nonsense, it looks like nothing.
I think that Sonia wanted to prove that she knows what is the suffering, but she obviously has no idea of what it is at all, because when someone crosses difficult moments, there are details and sensations we never forget.
Actually, I think I would have preferred that she mentions nothing, it would have looked more sincere. Here, a lot seems fake, and if she exaggerates about these serious things, we may think she maybe made up all the rest...
Because she talks about people who really had extreme painful situations in their lives, like cancer, loosing a child, etc. The worst thing we can imagine. But the author seems unable to know and feel what it can be to find ourselves in such situations. It is like if she had no idea about what is a feeling.
The whole thing seems a little superficial. It doesn't seem to have been actually lived.
She also says she has wonderful parents and a brother who is her best friend. Good for her! I think once you have that, the most important, a supportive family, all the rest doesn't matter.
Unfortunately, not a lot of people are so lucky.
What I mean is that it is easy to be very optimistic when we have the fundamental in our life.
Beside all this, this book is easy to read, it is not great literature, but it is pleasant to read, it is quick, and I agreed with most of the ideas she is developing here, it is a rather boosting book, so if you need some help, it will actually help you in the positive way.
I am just very confused and disturbed because I don't really trust the author here. Wanting to be successful is understandable. Now inventing situations in the aim of having success and giving hope by a fake way to people who are really in a very hard and sad situation is not acceptable. I may be wrong. But I'm afraid I am not.
This book doesn't scream "truth"...
I am a little bit disappointed and it kind of removed the sympathy I could have for the author initially.
