This book is a guide to the ultimate creative act; living our whole lives by intention and design.

It's a fascinating and practical take on the idea that we shape our own realities.

But what makes this book different is how it explores the fine art of manifestation, step-by-logical-step, in line with the 7 main chakras.

It's a compelling strategy for manifesting and makes even the loftiest life dream seem very do-able. But the process works just as well when applied to creative projects on a smaller scale.

The book is full of inspiring insights on the creative process and happily there's an emphasis on how the journey can be one of fulfillment, synergy, altruism and (my favourite) joy.

And, as Anodea and Lion put it: "If you bring the joy and enthusiasm of your inner child into your activities, life becomes a playground."

It's a really enjoyable read and I highly recommend it if you’re interested in metaphysics, creativity and taking control of your own life.

Provides the Missing Link for Manifesting 25 Sept. 2012
By L. Erickson - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read a lot of books on the chakras, and a lot of books on manifesting, and I think this one does a brilliant job of marrying the two and provides something new on both fronts. Anodea Judith is a psychotherapist who has written some of the most popular books out on the chakras, including Wheels of Life and Eastern Body, Western Mind, and Lion Goodman is a cofounder of the Luminary Leadership Institute, which I'm not familiar with but apparently does business and organization leadership training. This proves a good combination in terms of creating a book that is both grounded and spiritually driven.

The premise of the book is the standard 7-chakra system as a foundation for understanding the process of creation or manifestation itself. While spiritual traditions emphasize the upward movement of energy through the chakras as part of the journey from matter to spirit, this book emphasizes the downward movement, from inspiration or idea to physical reality. Each chakra represents a phase in this process, with Chakra 7 representing our connection to Source and our highest purpose, from whence our best ideas spring, Chakra 6 our ability to envision and imagine for ourselves, Chakra 5 our ability to share our idea and receive feedback, Chakra 4 our ability to establish the relationships and support necessary to bring it into being, Chakra 3 our ability to make a plan and carry it through, Chakra 2 our ability to imbue it with passion, and Chakra 1 our ability to make it a reality in the world.

The book is organized along these lines, with lots of exercises in each chapter to help the reader work on the associated chakra step, and to work through any resistances or obstacles. Most of the exercises are inquiry, journal or partner oriented - they aren't chakra meditations or energy work. This makes the book accessible to almost anyone - you don't need a pre-existing knowledge of the chakras. They are used here more as a psychological framework than as centers in the body.

I think many readers interested in manifestation will benefit from this book, because the exercises are so grounded, and apparently 'road-tested' (the authors have taught the material in this book in workshops nationwide for awhile.) And I personally love seeing the chakras presented in this way, because it attracts a new audience to them, which can only be good:-)

Some Excellent Exercises 22 April 2013
By Antigone Walsh - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book primarily due to the efficacy of one of the exercises contained in the sample. It involved eliminating pain. Essentially, you step into the pain and experience it fully and voila, the pain is gone. I thought if all the exercises were even half as successful as that one, this book would be dynamite.

The book promises a unique way of manifesting through the chakras. Instead of starting at the bottom, it suggests starting at the top, at the finest, most spiritual levels and then gradually working the idea down through the denser levels of energy until it manifests on the physical level.

I really enjoyed the book up through page 99. It contained some highly interesting and effective exericses. However, it gradually morphed into more of a business type workbook, ie, focusing on goals, etc. I did not think that the marriage between the esoteric and the business workshop elements was entirely successful and would have prefered the focus to remain more on the chakras. This is not to suggest that the tips and business type exercises are not useful; rather they are certainly valid and helpful. They just seemed to belong in a different book. Also not all their advice is applicable to every manifestation situation. For instance, they suggest communicating your goal with other people. This might be helpful when hunting for a job, but there are other goals that might not be served by inviting public comment and examination. Similarly, one of the exercises involves inviting friends over and having them pretend to be your stated obstacles. You then are supposed to push pass their resistance. I don't know that all people would be comfortable with that, nor should they. But overall, I did think this was a book worth reading and have successfully integrated many of their exercises in my own life.

Great Book! 22 Oct. 2012
By Anna - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book as an e-book but loved it so much that I will buy it in paper form to read again and to actively and more easily follow the guidelines and exercises. Inspirational information is integrated into the theme of the chakra energy systems in a manner that makes perfect sense, and the author(s) encourage a systematic examination of a lived life to discover the patterns that create (your/our) life's purpose. For those willing to explore, this is a wonderful guidebook!

Brilliant Blueprint to Creating the Life You Want 28 Jan. 2013
By Theresa Rose - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was blessed to attend an intensive workshop with Anodea and Lion several years ago on the technology of manifestation through the chakras. It was literally a life-changing event which got me focused on utilizing my chakra system in the focused, directed efforts towards creating the life I wanted. I am happy to say that, based on many of the teachings I received in that program (which is now in this WONDERFUL book!), I am living the life I only dreamed about a few short years ago. Anodea and Lion have an incredible grasp on the creation process, describe the obstacles we put in the way, and provide incredibly effective techniques to bust through old paradigms so our True Selves emerge.

I count both of them as major influencers and teachers in my life's work, and I highly recommend this book for anyone who is ready to create a bigger, more joyful, juicier life! If you read the book and do the work, you will have the life you desire and deserve.

Every question I ever had about the chakras answered here! 6 Dec. 2012
By Olivia Brooks-Scrivanich - Published on
Format: Paperback
Creating on Purpose is the best information I've heard on manifesting, how it works and why. Even if you have little or no knowledge of the chakra system, you'll know and understand it by the time you finish this book. Things really started to change as I applied the knowledge and techniques outlined here. Many, many thanks Anodea and Lion...truly a masterpiece.
