What others might call God, Universal Spirit, or their Higher Power, McCarthy calls her Chief Spiritual Officer or CSO. She meets with her CSO on a regular basis, as part of her daily 30 minute practice to financial abundance.
She outlines a seven step process: read something uplifting; write gratitude statements to your CSO; speak your truth as you read your letter out loud; imagine having the experience; listen for direction from your CSO; celebrate the good that shows up; and finally, end your day with gratitude and forgiveness.
The book is divided into two sections to help the reader set up a daily practice and then deepen it. Several anecdotal stories from her students are included as examples. Each chapter closes with an easy exercise to support the process.
McCarthy states, “We want to know the truth. But it’s when we surrender the design of the path over to the CSO that we experience the maximum good in the least amount of time.” She suggests doing the practice for 30 days using the words, thoughts, and emotions that support what you do want, not what you don’t. Samples of affirmative gratitude statements for business and life are provided. So is a list of suggested metaphysical books by Joseph Murphy, Napoleon Hill, and Catherine Ponder for inspiration.
