We all want to manifest the things we long for in life, a good house, a good car, an attractive spouse who really loves you, beautiful kids and a life full of peace and joy. Nothing could make life better than this.
And as the law of attraction states, we all attract what we constantly think about, so if we are able to direct our thoughts at these things the right way, we should be able to make manifest all of them. But how many know how to apply the law the proper way in the physical world?
I would say very few.
And this is where a book like “Ask and it is Given” comes in handy for those who haven’t quite mastered the law yet.
The Ask and it is given book review here will be looking deeply at the law of attraction, how the author has addressed it and how it helps you apply the law to see the kind of results you are looking for, the best place to buy the book and my personal thoughts on the book.
So without any delays, let’s get rolling. 🙂

The book is going to connect the pieces of puzzle of life together for you to see how things like health, your financial life, career and even relationships are all connected and governed by the same rule.
It was also show you how to use your thoughts to make the law of attraction work for you.
This is a real subject of interest which I have seen hundreds, if not thousands, wanting to know more about. And this book should in a way provide all the answers you might asking yourself about this law.

I believe by the titles of the chapters, you can see how deep the book goes into the law of attraction and how well it has been designed to help those who are really determined to make the law work for them.
One of the quotes I felt very inspired by, from the book that I still remember is that, the level of success you want is not quantified by the amount of material things you amass, but by the intensity of joy the thing brings you. (I didn’t quote this word for word)
I find this really beautiful and profound.
Also, I loved the way the author has described the kind of power of that has been given to us to drive our lives and future to the place we would love to be, if we only understood properly.
There are just so many good gems of wisdom and knowledge that the book shares that you are going to find quite insightful and inspiring.
Best Place to Buy the Book
Personally, I find www.amazon.com to be the best place to get the book because of their reputation and for the fact that they offer a good combination of books recommendations that will complement the book you get. Also, if you had any plans of buying stuff online today, You can still get to order them altogether there. Saves the time.
My Personal Thoughts on the Book
Firstly, I have to say that I know a good bit about the law of attraction and I have seen it work for me quite a number of times thus far. So I can say that the law really does work when you implement it the right way. And this book has handled the most essential aspects of the law of attraction that you need to know to start making it work for you.
I also like the idea of the processes they offer to get you to become very practical with the law and start reaping benefits from it. So, I would advise you to get the book and pay close attention to the words of the author.
Internalise them, meditate upon them and visualise the ideas the author is expressing within the book and you should find it very useful.
Everything you need to get started with the law of attraction and make manifest your dreams are in the book, if you read it with an open mind.
Other books on the same topic I would encourage you to read as well are:
- The universe has your back
- You can heal your life
- The secret
- The road back to you
- A course in miracles
And this is where my review comes to a halt friends.
I hope I have been helpful as far as getting you to know the gist of this book goes.
