I have long been interested in what was called the ‘New Thought Movement’ – a philosophical movement initially based on the teachings of Phineas Quimby which started in the USA in the 19th Century.
New Thought focusses on manifesting our desires through faith in God or the ‘Infinite Spirit’ – who pervades everyone, every situation and everything.
At LifeBoss Coaching I encourage those of my clients who are interested in the art of ‘manifesting’ and the ‘Law of Attraction’ to use affirmations, positive thinking, faith and positive doing (an absolute must but often forgotten!) to help them create/attract what they want in their lives.
New thought and Positive Living teachings that I have studied and use in my coaching include the writings of Florence Scovel Shinn, Neville Goddard, Emmet Fox, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Norman Vincent Peale, Dale Carnegie, Anthony Robbins, Eckhart Tolle, William Glasser, Joseph Murphy, Henry Drummond, Tony De Mello and Ernest Holmes – to name but a few.
Another New Thought writer I have studied is Wallace Wattles. His book ‘The Science of Getting Rich’ was the influence for Rhonda Byrnes’ famous book ‘The Secret’.
