Relying on magic
on 26 December 2013
This is a brief book, just an essay really, about how to attract money by magic. It talks about money as if it were an entity and since, in fact, the author has spirit guides, there is a certain logic in this. I will not remove all the impact of her book by disclosing the secret of her method of attracting money, though it could be stated in two sentences.
Personally, I am not opposed to belief in the supernatural, since I believe in the supernatural God, and so in the power of faith and in spiritual laws. Thus far, the author of this booklet and I are agreed. However, the beliefs taught in this book have more to do with superstitious and magical folk religion than with the exalted religious beliefs of Judaism and Christianity. I'd like to say more, but if I do I will give away the book's main idea.
The sincerity of this author shines out of her writing. She is loving and giving in her attitudes and her central suggestion is a very attractive one, whether one accepts her religious ideas or not. Her book is written literately and there are few typos, a refreshing change from many indie books on Kindle. I love to read the life-wisdom of others and was ready to absorb and accept what she has to say, but personally I am not ready to descend to mere magic. I consider that there's a better guide than spirits and that is the Spirit of God, and a better way to gain prosperity through following more exalted spiritual laws. To follow them involves surrendering one's control of life to God, which may be too much of a price for some. His Book promises, 'Give and it shall be given to you, pressed down and running over it shall be poured into your lap.' An ancient promise which still holds true, and requiring no spirit guides or dialogues with 'the spirit of money' but rather, dialogue with Almighty God. This is no mere quarrel over semantics and the details of belief, but a highly significant matter, since it affects the whole of one's life and that of whole communities and nations.
