4.0 étoiles sur 5 Financial Recovery and Prosperity Based in Faith and Spirituality Rather Than Money Alone 16 janvier 2012
Par Richard Szponder - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Best known for her groundbreaking book and workshop about creative recovery, The Artist's Way, Julia Cameron returns with an uplifting and inspiring book about the true spiritual meaning of prosperity, The Prosperous Heart. Laid out in the same format as The Artist's Way, Cameron has designed a 12-week recovery program for those suffering from financial instability and an unhealthy relationship with money. Focusing on improving one's financial condition while incorporating faith and spirituality into the process, Cameron once again helps her readers realize that what seems impossible may in fact be within their reach.

The foundational principle of The Prosperous Heart is that prosperity is not a financial concept, but rather a spiritual one. While many seek money as their sole source of stability and abundance, Cameron explains that money alone cannot bring happiness or stability. In actuality, it is faith that provides prosperity, and Cameron freely utilizes her own definition of God as the Great Creator and her personal spirituality to demonstrate her ideas. Fans of Cameron will find familiar tools, such as Morning Pages, three hand-written stream-of-consciousness journal pages written first thing in the morning, and a 20-minute daily walk. New tools for financial recovery include Counting, keeping a small journal of every penny earned and spent over the course of the 12-week program, and Abstinence, a complete abstaining from any further incurrence of debt. These tools were both first presented in Cameron's previous book, Money Drunk, Money Sober.

Over the course of the 12 weeks, the reader discovers his or her own unhealthy money spending patterns, whether they be overspending on credit cards, obsessively seeking out bargains, not spending money if when it is absolutely necessary, or enabling others in their own unhealthy spending habits. Cameron explains that debt is simply a mask for fear and anxiety, and through writing prompts and exercises, she helps her readers uncover the underlying issues for their unhealthy relationship with money. Often making comparisons to other 12-step programs, she demonstrates her examples with real-life tales from her own life and the lives of her many eccentric and creative friends.

The Prosperous Heart is as much about creativity as it is about financial recovery, as Cameron explains that financial instability is often a result of abandoned creativity. Throughout the course, she uses several familiar exercises intended on improving her readers' focus and attention on what they truly love, as doing what you love often promotes an attitude of prosperity and will likely attract further abundance.

Grief and loss are topics explored, as Cameron deals with some of the tougher issues of financial recovery, including examining your current list of friends and acquaintances and determining if you should continue in your current social circle. Working through the course, readers may also find that they are exploring trust issues with both themselves, in the form of fear of falling off the wagon, with others, and with God. She teaches how a gratitude and affirmative prayer can mend those trust issues. Often touching on New Thought concepts of spirituality, Cameron quotes familiar spiritual leaders such as Ernest Holmes, Charles Fillmore, and Catherine Ponder. Also present is the influence of Cameron's longtime friend and spiritual counselor, Sonia Choquette.

Generosity, forgiveness, and an attitude of expecting only the best round out the last few chapters of the book. Cameron explains that a truly prosperous heart is one that makes plans but is also open to unexpected gifts and answers that may not materialize in the exact form in which they were expected. Being open-minded and seeking the best possible solution as dictated by one's Higher Self is a heart that is on the true path of financial recovery and spiritual enlightenment.

The exercises and essays in Julia Cameron's The Prosperous Heart are designed to help her readers achieve financial stability through the instillation of spiritual concepts already familiar to her readers who have endeavored her creative recovery programs. Light-hearted and gentle, this is a valuable book to anyone demonstrating an unhealthy relationship with money and in need of getting to the root, spiritual cause of financial instability.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 We all need "Enough" 29 février 2012
Par Story Circle Book Reviews - Publié sur
I have been a follower of Julia Cameron for many years. This new book, The Prosperous Heart, and its message, takes techniques from The Artist's Way and applies them to how we look at money. The subtitle, Creating a Life of "Enough," is a message that we all need to read, hear, and implement in our lives.

This is a twelve week program of regaining your balance and connection with your money and your financial perspective. Cameron "trains" you through these lessons in using your creative spirit to connect with your prosperity in all aspects of your life. Her message--you cannot separate your finances from your spirituality or any other portion of your life--resonates with me, and will probably be a factor in how any reader relates to the message.

The key? "Prosperity is a spiritual bottom line." We are works in progress, evolving, the goal is not to be completed, but to be enriched, growing, learning and experiencing it all from a healthy, balanced perspective.

Cameron gives us the basic tools to practice and learn during the twelve weeks.

* Morning Pages have been an element of Cameron's teachings for many years. The author calls it "...the primary tool of a creative recovery...(and) also a primary tool for establishing prosperity."
* The next basic tool is Counting. It's a simple technique: you learn to habitually count money in and money out.
* Third is Abstinence. STOP going into debt. No more borrowing. Period.
* Fourth is Walking. What? What does walking have to do with growing in prosperity? It is an opportunity to "immerse yourself in the present." It is a way to embrace our own inner connections to the greater world.
* Next up is Time-Out. Yup. Just what it sounds like. Taking time for "self-appraisal" and "self-approval. Twice a day.

Once you have these five techniques under your belt you're ready to read on and learn during the twelve weeks how to change and embrace growth when dealing with prosperity.

Cameron encourages us not to get hung-up on labels. She uses "God" often in this book, but reminds us that whatever approach we take to the good in our lives, and whatever our religious base, we can take a renewed, healthy approach to develop our creative, prosperous heart. Each of the twelve weeks of study (from The Money Myth to the Prosperity Plan) will give you guidance in finding your own path to that life we are all seeking--flourishing, resourceful, imaginative and enriching in all its permutations.

Twelve weeks is a guideline--if you take longer reading/participating in one chapter to establish a comfortable understanding of the techniques, then give that to yourself. One chapter a week is enough though, for as Cameron reminds the reader, "be gentle with yourself." After all, twelve weeks (three months) is not too long to devote to yourself and your well-being, is it? There are optional exercises at the end of most chapters, which you can do, or not do. Some chapters will resound with you, providing "ah-ha" moments, others will be arduous and uncomfortable. Sometimes, she says, "when my students shake the apple tree, oranges fall. And oranges may have been just what they were looking for, after all."

I came across this book by accident. I love Julia Camerons work, but didn't know about this books release until yesterday. Yes, yesterday. I did what she says not to do and I read it all in one day. I plan on going back and doing each chapter as she says to do. The book resonates within me. Fo so long I've needed a solution for my finances and when she addresses the issues and the how-to's for fixing them I say YES! That makes sense and it's something I can do. Also, her statements that money is a spiritual problem is another Yes! moment for me. Knowing firsthand what she writes about has confirmed for me that this book is going to help get my financial and spiritual house in order. If you are creative and need help with your financial life and your spiritual life, this book is for you. As a kindle owner, I am very particular about spending money on books, since I can get so many for free.This one is worth every penny. Thank You Julia.

First a full disclosure: I am a devoted fan of Julia Cameron. All of her books are eminently readable and helpful
I first encountered her 1997 when "The Artist's Way" (1992) was cited in a book I was reading. I bought it and then later, the Morning Pages Journal that accompanies it.

I then purchased her Vein of Gold and, later, Finding Water. I have since acquired almost all of her subsequent books and have enjoyed each of them immensely, especially Floor Sample, the Right to Write, and the Writers Life all of which are less self-help and more of a personal glimpse into Julia the woman and writer.

That being said, however, I found The Prosperous Heart less enjoyable. It follows the model of the Artist's Way, but lacks its depth. There is a formulaic quality to this model, which like her other works, is rooted in a twelve-step approach to personal growth. Although that approach underlies the Artist's Way, in The Prosperous Heart it overshadows the more writerly and personal aspects of the book. I suspect that for a first time reader of Cameron's writings, this may not be a problem. But for me, it felt like, "been there; done that."

This book had a lot of good, sensible advice laid out with personal stories the author shares. The weekly homework helps to change our money mindset and get us onto a more disciplined financial path.

I have read some of the author's other books and this one does seem to rehash some of those concepts. Also, I found many of the author's stories hard to relate to. They are used as examples but are so far removed from my experiences that I found their usage to be more distracting than helpful.
