“Don’t Think of a Blue Ball” Book Review by Simran Melwani – Dream Interpreter and dear friend.
Hey Malti. I have finally completed reading ‘Don’t think of a Blue Ball’ and wanted to share my thoughts with you. I enjoyed reading your book; it was easy and practical and I would feel you ‘talking’ the book to me; that’s how “Plugged In” I felt J. The analogies were interesting, especially the one about Remixes, Hot Air Balloon and of course the best one was ‘Don’t think of a Blue Ball’ . The personal experiences that you have shared have added to the personal flavor of the book.
Having read various books on Law of Attraction, NLP, Creative Visualization and the power of the subconscious mind, I can say that you have taken the meat of everything and presented it simply and systematically in your book, in a way that encourages it’s readers to start practicing immediately. The DIY exercises are the best part of the book. There is something in it for everyone – depending on where you currently stand on your life path.
My favourite exercise is the Jigsaw Puzzle Visualization Exercise. I have been practicing something similar called The Mirror of the Mind technique by Silva Life System. It is similar in that we visualize our goal on the mirror of our mind, but your ‘jigsaw puzzle’ adds an element of ‘magic’ for me. This indeed is a very powerful exercise and has speeded up the manifestation of my desires. I have also been using the ‘Happy Songs list’ technique that you have shared in the book and it works for me! Music plays a major role for me in altering my mood.
Some important concepts that I have become aware of are ‘Safety Nets’, Doing and Allowing, the importance of Congruency and Revolving on our own Axis. I love your exercise of Don’t wants vs. Wants (Thinking Pink Exercise for a New Beginning) to help identify our desires.
You have expressed your desire to empower young children early on in their lives. My belief is that children learn best by example. When they see their parents/family living by these empowering beliefs, they will learn and follow. Empowering ourselves and walking the talk is the best way to empower our children.
In conclusion, I thank you dear Malti for sharing your awareness and lessons with us and empowering us with powerful exercises to practice
