By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on April 24 2009
Format: Paperback
I've read a lot of books about manifesting and the law of attraction. With a few exceptions, most tend to focus on physical manifestation of commercial goods or other means of financial gain. Basically, wanting a great job that pays X dollars a year and nice car.

A few of the better ones do mention that in order for something to be appear in the physical plane, it has to resonate with inner truth. However, The Attraction Distraction focuses almost exclusively on this topic. Moreover, the author takes the reader step by step through the process of finding out what you really want, how that desire is connected to your life purpose, and what obstacles you are likely to face.

I very much appreciated this more thorough take on manifesting. When in the midst of a crisis, it's very difficult to clarify wants and even more challenging to have them resonate with the best possible outcome for you. The exercises in this book help emmesely with the process.

HASH(0xa5fe7ccc) out of 5 stars Be Transformed Sept. 21 2008
By r. ortiz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked up Sonia M. Miller's "The Attraction Distraction" because I wanted to finally attain that un-manifested desire, but by the time I finished reading the book, I was transformed and so were my desires. I felt free. I felt relief. A much needed relief from longing and yearning... I was finally at peace with myself. This is a different kind of book by a different kind of author. Instead of quenching your thirst with a sip, she shows you the wellspring. Where other teachers and coaches stop, she gently but oh so effectively guides you further. Open the book on any page and you will find something to shift your perspective and stir your heart. Her purpose is not only to help you manifest what you want but to show you that there is more. It's about who you become in the process of manifesting your desire, and her words and exercises aim at the heart of what you are going through on your journey. For example, she speaks of the difference between having a vision versus a goal, of "replacement therapy" when your unyielding "attachment" to something is what hinders you from getting it, and how affirmations are not about repetition but finding ones that are true for you so you truly feel their power in your heart. She uses her life as an example throughout the book and is therefore a compassionate teacher that teaches you to "integrate" your ego and emotions into your life instead of condemning them. If you are willing to take the path of self-discovery, read the book and let her take hold of your hand. You will be so glad you did. I am.

HASH(0xa5fe7d20) out of 5 stars A Genuinely Different Perspective Jan. 14 2009
By Marsha Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are reading this review and considering buying this book, you probably have been exposed to manifesting, to Law of Attraction, The Secret, Abraham, Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Neil Donald Walsch, Eckhart Tolle or any number of brilliant and life changing authors, books and concepts that have come to light in the past 20 years (some written up to 100 years ago). You hopefully have been informed, inspired, uplifted and motivated. You know in your heart that you're on the right path, but you aren't getting anywhere - it is just not working for you! Well, apparently it is because you found this book.

I can only speak for myself, but since reading this book I can honestly say I have a much better understanding of how law of attraction works and why it wasn't working the way I wanted it too. I have learned things about myself and learned how to change some things about myself. This book showed me how to feel safe exactly where I was. I have had many aha moments, but this book was full of aaahhhhhhhhhh moments! This book is about the Universe and your relationship with it. THIS BOOK ANSWERS QUESTIONS I HAVE HAD FOR YEARS! I can promise you this book IS different, This book will make a difference in your life - all it takes is for you to be willing. I will be reading it again and again and again.........

HASH(0xa5fea018) out of 5 stars Miller Has Cracked the Code! Dec 4 2008
By S. Atencio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is it! This is the book we have all been waiting for! Sonia Miller has finally CRACKED THE CODE!

And, as it turns out, the key to the Law of Attraction lies in understanding that it is both spiritual and scientific, both personal and impersonal. The Law of Attraction is as simple and reliable as we have been led to believe. Yet Miller teaches us that within the scientific simplicity lay spiritual subtleties that make the difference between immediate success and a lifetime of frustration.

Like physical law, the Law of Attraction is scientific and impersonal--it works every time! Yet, personal success with the Law of Attraction depends upon whether we allow our desires, emotions, and life choices to gently flow from the higher vibrations of the soul or the lower vibrations of ego.

Miller gently reminds her readers that we are first and foremost spiritual beings. When we practice the Law of Attraction with awareness that emotion, desire, purpose, and growth come from soul rather than ego, we can quickly and easily create the lives of our dreams.

Miller's Mystic Formula contains four simple steps. These are comparable to the steps you will find in any other book on the Law of Attraction. Yet, Miller's spiritual vision sets this book far above the rest. When you follow the Law of Attraction from the wisdom of your soul you can become the positive, enlightened, transformed being you desire to be.

For this reason, The Attraction Distraction: Why the Law of Attraction Isn't Working for You...and How to Get Results-Finally! is an absolute must read for two types of readers: 1) those who truly desire to master the Law of Attraction, and 2) those who have struggled for too long on their spiritual journey.

If you are going to purchase one book on the Law of Attraction it should definitely be this one! This is a quick and pleasant read. And it is perfect for those who prefer a guilt-free diet. Yet, for the sincere reader, this book can carry the power of a lengthy, in-depth read or an intensive therapy session.

It's a good thing this is such an easy read because it is not the kind of book you read once and toss aside to gather dust. You will want to read it several times in order do the exercises, absorb the simple jewels of wisdom, and work through the deeper levels of truth. Then you will want to consult The Attraction Distraction whenever new seeds of desire are planted in your soul, when you feel stuck in negative patterns, or when you feel ineffective in creating your dreams.

I have studied metaphysics for thirty years, and this is the first book in several years about which I can say: This is more than just a good book--it is a handbook for happy, healthy, productive, transformational living!

HASH(0xa5fea534) out of 5 stars An easy read that will improve your life! July 1 2008
By Naomi L. Pierce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In "The Attraction Distraction," life coach Sonia Miller explains very clearly how you can use the law of attraction to reach your life's goals. Miller does not get too "New Age-y" and has a great deal of respect for her readers' belief systems. She presents a simple formula for making your dreams come true and explains how to apply it step-by-step. Unlike many books in the same vein, this book actually gives you all the tools to use spiritual awareness to guide your life. You don't need to read other books by the author, attend seminars, or any of the other things that some books seem to be ads for. This book has everything you need all in one place. I have already noticed some things in my life start to change for the better as I apply Miller's concepts and so I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to kick-start a dream or two.

HASH(0xa5fea588) out of 5 stars Practical Tools and Techniques for LOA June 28 2008
By Maggie F. Keenan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I felt is was important to contribute this review about Sonia M. Miller's book because, with so much distraction out there about the law of attraction, her book absolutely offers readers and learners practical techniques (and not just 1 way of doing something) to chose from that allows you find the one that resonates with you and exponentially elevate your energy (vibration). By just implementing one technique, I am quicker at shifting my focus and thoughts, which before it was easier to just stay stuck in a fog. If you are seeking to better understand the priciples and universal laws, and find approaches and techniques that open your mind and heart to flow and leave behind resistance and stuckville, Sonia's book is an absolute must read.
