The idea for this book began with a single thought: "What if we were given an owner's manual when we were born?" An owner's manual allows us to learn how to use something more effectively and to troubleshoot problems. We have manuals for just about everything else; imagine what our lives would be like if we had received this guidance for our mind.

The truth is that we have been given instructions on how to live a healthy and prosperous life, and they are the foundation of many great philosophies and religions. The problem that sometimes arises is that these teachings take on a certain twist that alienates people from them.

We have a certain fascination with the incredible untapped potential of our minds. Some studies once suggested that we use only 10% of the mind's capacity. Today that estimate has been revised to about 2%--3%. Imagine what more we could do with all of that as yet unrealized potential. What is standing in our way? How do we move into a more full realization of who we are? These are the questions that this book seeks to answer.

Patrick Andries has degrees in physics and biology from DePaul University and a teaching certificate in metaphysics from the College of Metaphysics. He has more than 20 years of experience teaching and applying the principles of metaphysics to his life.
