Beyond Psychology - The Potential of Conscious Thinking

by Sue

I would like to add "Beyond Psychology - The Potential of Conscious Thinking" by Nona Coxhead to this list of books. It was published in 1991 and I think, unfortunately, is now out of print (but copies can be obtained thru Amazon). For me, it was the first book I had read on LoA (or Law of Manifestation) that led me ultimately to a feeling of conviction that I could align myself with the Power.

The first part of the book gives a brief rundown on the history and advances of psychology in understanding the mind and then goes forward to the importance of conscious directed thinking to enable you to have some say in your destiny and the importance of realizing that we are connected to Creative Intelligence. But, as far as I'm concerned, this book was a relief to me as it didn't make me feel as though everything depended on me being successful at maintaining visualization, meditation, etc.

There was a way to set the law in motion simply by KNOWING that you could decree a thing be so and, if you did it with ABSOLUTE conviction (and thereby consciously aligned with the Power/Law), and for the good of all, so it would be. Of course, you must also believe you deserve what you are decreeing.

There seem to be seemingly different approaches to activate the LoA, but I include this intelligent well-written book for anyone who might find this approach more helpful than others.

This sounds like an excellent LoA perspective!

Wow, Sue, thank you for providing such a thoughtful and personal review of "Beyond Psychology - The Potential of Conscious Thinking," it sounds like an excellent book.

I am giving the book 3 stars only because I have not yet read it myself, and though I have been trying to find it (so I can read it myself) I have not been very successful on that front. It seems it is fairly rare?

In lieu of getting my hands on the book, I did some research on Ms. Coxhead, and found that she is a disciple of the teachings of Ernest Holmes (Science of Mind) and a minister of Religious Science (not to be confused with Scientology or Christian Science.) I have also been a long-time student of the Science of Mind teachings, and have studied with Dr. Rev. Michael Beckwith (as seen in "The Secret".)

The Religious Science/Science of Mind teachings of Ernest Holmes are exceedingly complimentary to the Law of Attraction. It uses different words, but any person seeking to understand the Law of Attraction would be well-served by reading any of Ernest Holmes books. As such, I am sure that the book you are recommending is also a great read!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and help others to make an informed choice!

Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise
From outward things, whate'er you may believe.
There is an inmost centre in us all,
Where truth abides in fullness; and to KNOW
Rather consists in opening out a way
Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape,
Than in effecting entry for a light
Supposed to be without

Beyond Psychology is my prided possession and is summed up in the above
