INSPIRE #202: How to Generate Wealth, Happiness & Success through the Miracle Power of Your Mind!

Mitch Horowitz Shares The Miracle Power of Your Mind, the Joseph Murphy Compilation Discussing The Secret, Law of Attraction, Health, Wealth & Success Plus Guided Meditation!

Listen to the podcast below!



If you’ve ever struggled with wealth, and wondered why in the world others can get it, but no matter how hard you try or focus on it, it just doesn’t come your way, then do we have the show for you!

Today I’ll be talking with Mitch Horowitz, Editor of one of my new all-time favorite books, by one of my favorite authors. It’s The Miracle Power of Your Mind: The Joseph Murphy Treasury, a compilation of 24 all-time favorites by Joseph Campbell, including The Power of Your Subsconscious Mind, Believe in Yourself, Fear Not, and Riches Are Your Right.

Today we’ll talk about the power of the mind, and your subconscious to create anything you desire. We’ll look at how it works, how to use it, what you don’t want to do, and even the best ways to pray!

That plus we’ll talk about surgery without anesthesia, the power of magnetized steel, and why in the world, you want to daydream while you’re in a sleepy state!
