After working for two weeks, I finally got a day off. Unfortunately, that day off ended up being cloudy and cold for half the day :(. However, it did become a bit prettier in the evening. I managed to catch some sun, but when it became too cold (below 75 F or 22 C) I went inside and spent most of the day reading "Ask and it is Given" by Esther and Jerry Hicks. I also listened to some great Celtic music to help tune out the background noise.
The book is interesting, though the first 14 chapters are extremely repetitive if you already get the basics of LOA or if you know how to comprehend what you've read after the first five times :P. I suppose they did it on purpose in order to drill the idea into the heads of their audience? However, there were a couple of segments which I'm glad they emphasized. First, you cannot control the actions of others. Second, it takes TIME to manifest things (like the example of driving from Phoenix to San Diego).
I'm more intrigued by the manifestation games. I did the first game (even though I was in a foul mood b/c I haven't seen sunlight in a while due to my schedule) and it actually cheered me up a bit. I just did the second game (which involves the creative box). Number 3 looks really interesting, so I'm going to give that a try in a little bit :).
I'm not finished with the book yet, but I have a few comments for those who are thinking about reading it. First, if you don't believe in spiritual mumbo-jumbo (especially channeling) just ignore the few mentions of Abraham in the book and you'll still get some interesting wisdom out of it (they don't constantly bring it up throughout the book). Second, if you know that your emotions are a guidance tool and such--and if you're running short on time--then you might want to skim through the first 14 chapters (they are short). If you have the time, or if you're new to the idea of emotions and vibrations working side-by-side, then read the chapters b/c it is a good reminder (and it reminds you a LOT). Third, play some of the games in the book. Even if it seems silly, it's at least worth a shot. What do you have to lose?
Ok, enough about the book for now. In case anyone is interested, I'm brainstorming a business plan for a website business, waiting for a reply from a friend about API's, thinking about a radio talk show idea for the UK, and trying to remain positive about the super busy day I'll have tomorrow. We have four sets of promotional advertisements which need to go on by Tuesday and we have no idea about sponsors yet :O. Which means, I'll be doing everything last minute tomorrow. Gotta enjoy the rush of radio :D. Also, after work, it's dinner and then I get to talk to my radio voice coach (hopefully good news?).
