Publisher: Hay House

Welcome to my review of Law of Attraction Secrets: How To Be Your Own Genie by popular HayHouse Author, Radleigh Valentine.

Do you want a magical life? One that does not include daily worry, or constant self-doubt? So do I, which is one of the reasons why I picked up this positive self-help book and why I fell in love with it. I am always looking to find some more Law of Attraction techniques and secrets, that can help me on my journey to reaching my potential, and I want the same for you, which is why I wanted to share How To Be Your Own Genie with you today.

Now, let me tell you from the start – even though, I have mentioned this before, on this blog – this book (and any other in the self-help or Law of Attraction category) will only be as good as the actions you are willing to put in it. If you are willing to follow along – and there are plenty of lessons and exercise for you to actively participate in your transformation process – then you will indeed be able to read all of the benefits that the Author intended to share with you.

Radleigh Valentine wants all of us to have a good life, that is apparent in the tone of the writing throughout, but more importantly, is the question if he can deliver on this premise?

I believe that he did!

With actionable lessons, in each chapter, that is meant to be worked through in due time – not in a rush to get to the other end – this book turns the reader into a believer, and more importantly into a believer that is willing to do something about changing his or her life.

  • It shows you techniques to become aware of your negative thinking patterns, and give you an opportunity to change them
  • helps you discover what holds you back – and assist you in breaking through those patterns, and behaviors
  • Introduces you to your magical helpers – yes, you do have those, you may just not be aware of them!
  • and gives you tips, that even when you have already applied some of the techniques, the magic does not seem to flow right.

This is not a book about Witchcraft (so no worries for those of you who are opposed to such a topic) , however, it is a book that helps you apply some tools to make you aware that you are already living a quite magical life, and how to make it even more magical than it already is.

What I enjoyed the most about this book:

I am someone who is not looking for stories and anecdotes when reading any self-help or transformational book. I personally prefer actionable non-fiction books, and the Author has managed to keep the tone friendly and happy, while providing plenty of workable exercises, that anyone can follow along, no matter where you are on your self-help or spiritual journey. I appreciated that most of this book. I am really not a fan of fluff, and fillers, when I am looking for information!

Here is a little interview with Radleigh Valentine for you to enjoy (keep reading below the video for the rest of the review!)

While How To Be Your Own Genie talks about abundance, it does not focus on just material abundance, but the overall feeling and well being of living magically. Of course, I am always looking to increase my income (I cannot feed 2 kids and 4 animals on love alone), but this book covers the importance of paying attention to every aspect of our daily lives.

What I did not like about this book

As much as I am trying to find something that I could improve on this non-fiction book, I could not find anything. After reading it, and working through some of the exercises (I am planning on working my way through all of them, one at a time), I already felt more at peace, and more in control of my self-talk. So, in the end, I have nothing negative to say here.

I highly recommend this book!

  1. I really found your post to be interesting.  Although, I am not into anything New Age, I like that you point out that the book does not have anything to do with witchcraft.  Thank goodness.

    I think there is something to the law of attraction.  I have heard of that book as well and would be interested in reading it.  Is that by the same author?  I am going to bookmark your website so I can look at your book reviews before buying a book.  Thank you for such useful information!

    1. Author

      my pleasure!

      There are a lot of books about Law of Attraction out there, including by similar titles, so I am not sure which one you are referring to. However, I highly suggest that you read anything by Ester Hicks, if you are interested in the subject.

      I am sorry to disappoint you, however, as a practitioner of Witchcraft (I consider myself a Hedge Witch), I just wanted to point out that the techniques in that book are not related to the practice of magick as it is practiced by those in the Craft.

      There is nothing disturbing about a person who practices Witchcraft. You would be surprised how much we would have in common.



  2. Hello, I like the way you put alle important aspects of Radleigh Valentines book: “How to be your own Genie” together.
    It seems an interesting book as it is speaking about attraction techniques in the way of a self help book. I totally agree with you that you have to put  energy in it to make it happen. As you describe it very well, explaining what holds you back and make you become aware of it, are the basics of evolution to positiveness. I’m glad to hear that you felt more in control of yourself by reading Radleigh Valentines book. 
    You convinced me to read that book, to change certain aspects of my live.
    Thank you

      you are very welcome – I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have!



  3. Sounds like a really top book. The review is certainly engaging.

    I am a big believer in the law of attraction and can relate with some of what is written in the review.

    It is my personal belief  that if you want something and truly believe that it will happen, it will.

    That said though if what you desire would negatively impact the universe and its inhabitants by a ripple effect then it wont.

    Its all about the greater good, or ?

    1. Author

      for the most part, I agree. However, when we hold a native collective consciousness, it is more likely that we will find ourselves in the hands of leaders that want us, or at least parts of the humanity harm, and create war. It is for that reason, that I try to stay away from news as much as possible. I know enough to make positive decisions, and I can distance myself from adding to that said collective energy. At least it makes sense to me in that way.

      Of course, I have a unique approach to Law of Attraction, because I also am a practicing Witch, which means I would not deter from using negative energy in my approach if absolutely necessary. 

      But only in aspects of defense.

      Thank you for stopping by!



  4. Hello, Is the book ‘How to be your own Guide’ available in Bookstores offline?

     I agree that there are many helpful books available for the public to read at a ‘cost’, however, not everyone who reads will apply accordingly. 

    Without which one would not see the benefit. I like the way you caution by saying the book is not witchcraft. My term, Depending on how the mind works one might become carried away and misunderstand your magical term about the book.


    1. Author

      as far as I know, it is available in book stores, most HayHouse publications are universally available, but you can also get it directly from if you prefer that over Amazon. 

      Thank you for stopping by


  5. Great post, Claudia!

    I’ve always been into the “Magical Forces” that drives our lives, and more importantly – the self-awareness we all have within ourselves.

    I believe we can all improve our lives greatly by following the self-help suggestions by Radleigh Valentine. He has helped me lead a more positive life with his previous writings and can’t wait to see what advice he offers in his latest book.

    1. Author

      oh hi Jeff, I am glad to see someone who is familiar with Radleigh’s work here! If you enjoyed his previous work, then I can guarantee you will love this one as well. 



  6. Ok, Claudia, a nice book review.  I will offer my opinion on the topic of using new-age methods for self-improvement.  I do have experience there.  Most new age methods center around opening oneself up to experiences with the spiritual plane.  So various relaxation methods designed to empty the mind are promoted by those teachers.  The problem with that is that there are entities out which may take advantage of such a state if it is too deeply done to cause harm.  So don’t go there without the supervision of a teacher who knows what they are doing, ever.  I’ve seen what can happen if one does.  That is my opinion of using a book to go there.

    That, though, isn’t really meant to demean a great job of reviewing a book.  I’m really suggesting that you be careful practicing the exercises in the book.  Some of them may be beneficial, heck, all of them may be for all I know without reading it myself.  I’m looking forward to checking out more of your book reviews.  My best to you!

  7. I have always been a student of the Laws of the Universe and the Law of Attraction, being one of those laws, is foremost in my mind on a daily basis. Over the years, I have learned to connect with my higher self and I have been able to listen. Not always though as my ego seems to want to run the show often enough. 

    I am delighted to find this book “How To Be Your Own Genie”. From your review, I think I may have found a book that will give an explanation that I can share with others when I talk about manifestation. 

    Some people think all they have to do is ask, but they don’t realize how important it is to feel the desire and also that the feeling needs to be positive, as negative can come just as quickly as positive if not faster.

    I’m really truly excited to find this book and I appreciate you bringing it to my attention. Thank you.

    1. Author

      you are very welcome.

      Oh, you are not only one who has to keep the ego at bay at times, lol. I hear you. It is important that we emphasize the power of our feelings, and how directing them toward the positive is essential in life. I have found it funny, that even people who claim to not be associated with Law of Attraction or never would teach anything like that because they are business people, tend to in a nutshell say the same thing. Anyone with marginal success seems to get those principles, at least to a point.

      Thanks for stopping by



  8. Hi! I appreciate your honest opinion about this book. You share a bit of your background searching and what you find helpful and what you don’t. Reading about the things you liked about the book, I found interesting that you’re always after actionable non-fiction books. And that statement has helped me change my prejudice about How to be your own Genie. Thank you!
