James Arthur Ray – Parallel Universes: Is it Worth Buying?

“You grow the most when you’re on the border of chaos and order.” ~ James Arthur Ray

The very thought of quitting my job scared the crap out of me.  I mean if I wasn’t working and couldn’t earn an income, what would I do?  How would I pay the bills?  I played with that idea in my head for over a year before I decided to quit.  It was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made.

Fast forward a few months and I’m working part-time; earning an hourly income that is 297% more than what I was earning before.  Does growth have to be linear?  Not if you make a quantum leap into a parallel Universe.

This is a review of James Arthur Ray DVD: Parallel Universes

Quantum Leap into a Parallel Universe

I’m not going to lie to you – it wasn’t easy.  I knew that I didn’t want to be in my job, but I couldn’t see a way out.  And so I just stayed where I was – idle and miserable for over a year.

Then I decided to quit.  Initially, I was freaked out, but you see I had this inherent awareness that everything was going to work out.  I just knew that things were going to get better – and that I was getting better.  I could see a new future.

James Arthur Ray – 4 Scientific Breakthroughs

Who is James Arthur Ray?  James is one of the stars on the movie the Secret.  He has been known as a practical spiritual teacher for the past 17 years.  His DVD, Parallel Universes is cutting edge.

Do you like science?  Are you interested in quantum physics?

Then you’ll enjoy this video.  James will share 4 scientific breakthroughs with you – facts that will explain why a parallel Universe is within your reach.  These were the same ideas I used to triple my income in a short period of time.  Forget linear growth, we’re talking big jumps here.

I’ll be honest with you – I bought this DVD after I made my own jump – but all things considered I did apply the principles James teaches in his DVD, Parallel Universes.  Here are two of them:

Principle #1: Law of Reversal

The Law of Reversal states:

“To turn misery, disease and failure into joy, health and prosperity, I must think, speak and act in ways which are the exact reverse of how most people think, speak and act.” ~ James Arthur Ray

This is easier said than done.  And I’ll tell you from my own experience that this can be challenging, at least in the beginning.  Applying this law means that,

  • if most people are talking about recession, you’re not
  • if most people are bitching and complaining, you’re not
  • if most people are spending more than they earn, you’re not

This is just skimming the surface of the law of reversal.

Principle #2: Chaos & Order

The second principle James speaks of is being on the edge of chaos and order.

“You grow the most when you’re on the border of chaos and order.” ~ James Arthur Ray

James says that being on the border of chaos and order is not being a total wreck; it’s not being stressed out either.  That’s not what James is talking about.  He says it’s maintaining calm of mind while increasing your capacity to perform.  That means thinking and acting in pursuit of your target, without surrendering to challenges.

To quantum leap your growth, to enter your parallel Universe, you have to be willing to go to the edge of chaos and order – just to the edge, but not over the edge.  Being on the border of chaos and order is to sustain the most resistance while maintaining calm of mind.

Consider this analogy. When boiling water you’re on the border of chaos and order.  Add too much heat and you’re water will completely boil off – all you have left is steam – that’s over the edge, don’t go there.

Maintain the boiling point and you’re on the edge of chaos and order.  It also turns out that the greatest transfer of energy takes place during the boiling of water – the time when water is transformed into steam – and not when you’re heating the water up to the boiling point.  Just look in any engineering thermodynamics steam table and you’ll see this to be true.

Are You Ready For Your Parallel Universe?

This idea of a quantum leap into a parallel universe seems foreign.  But let’s get something straight – you are at the cause of everything in your life.  You cause your results, ALL of them.  You have more power between your ears than all of the electrical power available in an entire city.

Are you ready for a quantum leap? Let there be no mistake about it.  You are always ready – all you have to do is decide; and the Universe will conspire for you to make it happen.

Is this blind faith?

This may sound like blind faith.  Like jumping into the deep end of a pool without a life-jacket; without knowing how to swim.  Maybe, but with one difference.  With a quantum leap you have a different understanding of how the Universe works; you’re working with the laws instead of against them.

You see, in Parallel Universes, James says,

It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.” ~ James Arthur Ray

This statement sets the foundation for a quantum leap.  Let’s go a little deeper to understand what he’s really talking about here.  There are two parts to this statement.

Part 1: “It’s not what you do” – the ‘what you do’ is the physical doing.  The problem is that everyone does this.  If you’re an engineer, you may sketch, design and produce layouts.  A lot of engineers do that – in fact most of them do this because that’s what they’re hired to do.

Part 2: “It’s how you do it” – this is the internal how.  This is the magical ingredient that most people miss.  There are very few engineers who go inside and work with their thoughts and feelings to alter their mental design before creating their physical blueprints.  I can only think of a few.  Maybe you’ve heard of them: Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, Guglielmo Marconi, and Nikola Tesla.

In fact, Tesla visualized all of his inventions prior to putting them to paper.  Here is an excerpt from his biography,

“Before I put a sketch on paper, the whole idea is worked out mentally. In my mind I change the construction, make improvements, and even operate the device. Without ever having drawn a sketch I can give the measurements of all parts to workmen, and when completed all these parts will fit, just as certainly as though I had made the actual drawings. It is immaterial to me whether I run my machine in my mind or test it in my shop. The inventions I have conceived in this way have always worked. In thirty years there has not been a single exception. My first electric motor, the vacuum wireless light, my turbine engine and many other devices have all been developed in exactly this way.” ~ Nikola Tesla

Many people ignore this part completely – the internal how – or they don’t understand how to properly apply it.  And that’s why they haven’t made a quantum leap.  I’ve mentioned this before in, Why is taking so long to reach your goals?

Will you Jump to Your Parallel Universe with thought alone?

No.  You simply can’t.  You have to work in pursuit of your dream while keeping an eye on your target.  It works together.  Even though I have a huge interest in mind power, I’m not advocating that you work with thought alone.

What I didn’t like about Parallel Universes

This DVD was shorter than I would have liked it.  Although it was 85 minutes long, at the end of it I found myself wanting more.  I was intrigued by some of the ideas and scientific facts presented – and found myself curious to learn more.

The great thing is that my curiosity gave me some new ideas and some new research to explore.  Besides that, I think this DVD is great value for the price. James will enlighten you with some great advice for creating the internal how and working on the border of chaos and order.

What I really liked about Parallel Universes

James training style is engaging; he’s fun and entertaining too! That’s what I really liked about the video – aside from the expansion and learning I did while watching his video.

In order to make a quantum leap, James says you have to be willing to have all five areas of your life working together simultaneously.  He calls these the 5 pillars of Harmonic Wealth:

  1. Financial – this isn’t only about money; it’s about wealth which also means well being.
  2. Relational – your relationship with yourself first, then with others.
  3. Intellectual – includes your mental and emotional self.
  4. Physical – body, health, houses, cars, toys, etc.
  5. Spiritual – your connection with source, God, the Universe etc.

You see, you can’t climb the mountain of truth with 30 lbs excess weight.  You can but it’s going to be that much harder.  What James is proposing is Harmonic Wealth.  You have all areas of your life firing together.  Neglect one area and you stump your growth.

Consider these questions:

  • Does money affect your relationships?
  • Does health and fitness affect performance in your career?

You know they do, which is why James proposes synchronicity in all five of these areas.  You will accelerate the quickest when all areas of your life are firing in alignment.

    Thank you for an EXCELLENT review. While I am certainly intrigued by the “parallel universe” theory, after reading your review, I feel that there’s probably a better book or dvd out there. That’s exactly what a GOOD review is supposed to do, allow the reader to make an informed decision as to whether a product is right for them.

    Thanks again

    Very interesting review Steve, thanks. I particularly like your distinctions on ‘what’ and ‘how’ you do things, it clarifies Wallace Wattles points made by Bob Proctor. Thanks, Libby.
