3.0 out of 5 stars Money isn't everything, prosperity is!, 31 Jan 1999
By A Customer
The "CREATING TRUE PROSPERITY" audio cassette by Shakti Gawain excerpts the essential ideas presented in her prosperity workshop and her book of the same title. The key word here is "true." On Side One, Gawain discusses what true prosperity is. Is prosperity having plenty of money? If so, then how much is plenty? For most of us, it is a case of not experiencing prosperity no matter how much money we have. Why? Generally, the more money we have, the more responsibility we acquire in the process. Also, our expenses usually increase proportionately as our income increases. Actually, Gawain points out, true prosperity has little to do with money. Prosperity is having plenty of what we truly need and want in life. Therefore, her first recommendation is to discover just exactly what it is that we need and want. With that done, the next thing that we require according to Gawain is the ability to bring these things into our lives. Her final recommendation is to enjoy and appreciate what we already have.
Gawain's key point seems to be that prosperity is related to but not caused by money, which is only the means not the end. So then, just what is the relationship between money and prosperity? Gawain suggests, there are three approaches to this relationship. The material approach is a purely external one while the spiritual approach is an internal one. The third approach, which Gawain calls the "New Age" approach, is based on consciousness. We manifest externally what we feel and think internally. While Gawain considers this last approach more realistic than the material or the spiritual, she feels that all three are too simplistic and limiting and offers a fourth approach This one draws on the other three but goes beyond them. It focuses on money as a mirror of prosperity. One could label this the "energy" approach, in which money, like health, career or relationships, represents an aspect of one's life that mirrors how well one's energy is circulating in that particular area. For example, if you are having chronic financial difficulties, you may want to examine your feelings toward power or unworthiness. Gawain then shares a seven-step process to enhance our prosperity: gratitutde, awareness, healing, following your truth, creating a vision, setting goals and sharing our gifts
On Side Two, Gawain presents two meditations. The first one is a meditation on gratitude whereby we come to realize and express our appreciation for what we already have. The second one is a meditation on discovering what it is that we need and want in our lives. For anyone familiar with Gawain's other audio cassettes or books, these two meditations are standard fare. If you have not been exposed to any of Gawain's material before, you may find them interesting.

This book has to be the best kept secret. I wish I had read it ages ago. (I know, it wasn't published then.) This book is a treasure of quick, precise information. Now I know "why" and "how". Wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Abundance and prosperity when you follow your heart, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creating True Prosperity (Gawain, Shakti) (Paperback)
I am very much into manifesting abundance and this book is along the theme of that. Essentially if you follow your heart, do what you love, then your life is going to be fulfilling and satisfying. Shakti is an inspirational writer and although this book had some familiar themes in it for me,I enjoyed the book thoroughly.
