The Cosmic Ordering Service by Barbel Mohr.

Author: Barbel Mohr
ISBN: 0-340-93332-1
Genre: Self help - Non Fiction
Format: Paperback

The Cosmic Ordering Service is the new self-help phenomenon. It is recognised as the book that turned TV presenter Noel Edmonds' life around. Bestselling author Barbel Mohr teaches you how to fulfil all your wishes -- just by placing an order with the universe. She has used the Cosmic Ordering Service to gain her dream job, the ideal man, money, health -- even a castle to live in! Mohr has taught hundreds and thousands of others how to listen to your inner voice, place your order, sit back, and let marvellous things happen."

I first heard about this book in the paper when Noel Edmond's show ' Deal or No Deal' first came onto our screens. He kept having these tattoo's on his hands, and in the paper he mentioned the book and said he followed the authors system. So, my sister went and bought the book, she loved it and then my mum got me a copy. I had picked it up a little while ago, but forgot about it until this weekend, when I picked it up and finished it. I seem to have forgotten about my spiritual books, after reading so much fiction. So have dug them all out.

This really is a little book all about positivity. It's about asking the universe for things you desire and the universe delivering them. It starts with explaining about the author and how she found herself arguing with her friend about ordering from the cosmos, and how she made a list of orders not expecting to get them at all, and then she's amazed when she did. She then goes on to show you, how you can make orders and gives some exercises for you to follow.
Barbel, also talks about the spirit world, and gives you an exercise to follow to get in contact with the 'other side'. I found this to be really peaceful and I enjoyed it.

I also loved all the positive quotes that are in the back of this book, they really make you feel good about yourself and help to put you into a positive mood, raising your self esteem.

Overall though, even though I enjoyed this book, I didn't think any of it was 'new' information. As asking the universe for things is something I've done all my life, we all do it in one way or another. It also reminded me of Prayer, Spells and Reiki. All these things are getting in touch with your higher self and spirit. It's the sort of book you keep by your bed at night and read for a little inspiration and confidence boost.

My Rating; Filled with Positive Energy.

Cheers for the review. I don't really read self-help books so it's interesting to see whats out there.
