Create the Life You Want is a collection of writings by Raymond Charles Barker, one of the most popular exponents of New Thought in the mid-20th century. Many of the essays in the book have been out of print and unavailable for many years. Other material is available here for the first time edited into gender neutral language for the 21st century, making Barker’s ideas freshly accessible to a new audience.
Barker had a unique ability to explain in a clear and simple way metaphysical ideas like the law of attraction, affirmations, meditation, mental healing of the body, and what he termed “spiritual mind treatment”. He inspired many people to take charge of their lives and change in positive ways, emphasizing over and over how the power of thought can be used to heal the body, mind and spirit, and thus eliminate fear, anxiety, worry, nervousness, pessimism and unbelief. Barker was adamant that everyone could benefit from putting these principles into practice in their lives. By following Barker’s advice, we can treat the subconscious blocks that prevent us from attaining our goals. We can create new ideas, eliminate problems, create happiness for ourselves and others, remove the belief of lack and limitation, and learn how to decongest our consciousness and create a fresh mind.
