For the first time, a Neuroscientist and Senior Lecturer at MIT reveals the surprising science that supports The Law of Attraction as an effective tool for self-discovery and offers a guide to discovering your authentic self to access your best life now.

Self-help books like The Secret show us that if we can tap into “The Law of Attraction,” we have the power to change our destiny simply by reshaping our mind. Millions of people have used the ancient systems of manifestation and visualization to find health, success, love, friendship, wealth, and more. But does the “Law of Attraction” actually work? And more important, is this kind of life-changing philosophy within reach for everyone, even the most skeptical among us?

As Dr. Tara Swart, psychiatrist, neuroscientist, and Senior Lecturer at MIT shows us in The Source, if we can strip away our skepticism, these ancient tools of manifestation and visualization are fundamentally powerful and incredibly effective at freeing us of self-limiting behaviors and propelling us toward our truest, most authentic selves. Swart reveals how and why these systems actually work by offering the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience and behavioral psychology, including lessons in neuroplasticity, magneticism, emotional and logical thinking, and even hydration, self-care, and relaxation. Next, she describes her own journey from skeptic to believer, and guides readers through the scientific breakthroughs and personal revelations that changed her from an unhappy, close-minded, and disconnected woman wanting more from life, to a successful entrepreneur living with confidence, purpose, and joy.

The truth is, most of the things we want—health, happiness, wealth, love—are governed by our ability to think, feel, and act—in other words, by our brain. Dr. Swart combines the insights and inspiration of The Secret with the practical lessons of The Master Key System to help a new generation fulfill their dreams. The Source is a rigorous, proven toolkit for unlocking our minds—and reaching our fullest potential.

This book will show you steps that you can use that will help you learn how you can succeed in your life goals and live a happier, healthier, more content life, Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, and Spiritually.

I thought it might be a hard read based on the subject but the author makes it easy to understand and the steps are easy to do.

I especially liked reading about how to spot false logic, improve creativity, making good decisions, and Interoception signals.

This is an interesting book and I think everyone could benefit from reading it.

The Source: The Secrets of the Universe, the Science of the Brain by Tara Smith”

  1. Self help books used to garner a snicker out of me but I like them now. Especially ones that make you feel good about yourself. With all the horrors in the news, it’s refreshing to be lifted up in some way even if it’s through a self help read.

    • I’ve always liked self help books but don’t read them very often. I’m glad I decided to join this tour because it’s a really interesting and thought provoking book.

  2. Glad you enjoyed reading this book.

  3. Thank you for being on this tour! Sara @ TLC Book Tours

  4. I’m less interested in the self-help aspect than in the neuroscience. Several years ago, I read a lot of “brain” books that were fascinating. The Brain that Changes Itself, The Secret Life of the Mind, The Three-Pound Enigma were books that were informative but not too hard to understand.

  5. This book sounds fascinating, Vicki. Terrific review!

  6. Sounds interesting. Great review!

  7. Sounds fascinating!
