I’m excited to report that my long awaited new book will be coming out later this month. It’s called Karmic Marketing: The Greatest Money-Making Secret in History. It reveals how to become a “Wealth Magnet” by giving. (You can pre-order it on Amazon right now. It releases November 22, 2021.) I’ve been talking about Karmic Marketing since the late 1990s. Here’s my blog post on it from 2006:
I’ve been mentioning Karmic Marketing for a decade or more, since around 1995. It’s high time that I explain what it means.
Here’s a quick definition:
Here’s how it works:
You’re rewarded instantly when you give because of the good feelings you get. Those feelings act like magnetizers that will attract more good feelings.
You’re rewarded later because of the invisible law that says you will get from giving.
I touched on this topic in my books, Life’s Missing Instruction Manual and Spiritual Marketing (1997), but I didn’t look at it from an in-depth Karmic Marketing perspective.
So let me give you an example or two:
At Un-Seminar II, I gave everyone a copy of the DVD of the movie The Secret.
I bought the DVDs out of my own pocket. I didn’t ask any money for them. I didn’t expect any money for them. I gave from my sincere desire to share.
Later that same night I received an email from Rhonda Byrne, the producer of The Secret. She said she was sending me, as a gift, a box of 50 DVDs of the movie.
That’s almost twice as many DVDs as I gave out.
That’s Karmic Marketing.
At one point during the event, I magically turned a roll of life savers into a hundred dollar bill, and then gave the money to an astonished woman in the audience.
I didn’t ask for anything in return.
Two days later, that same woman asked me a question in front of everyone that let me plug my next Beyond Manifestation weekend.
That plug led to my making two thousand dollars in one minute.
That’s Karmic Marketing.
The idea is to give freely, from your heart, wanting to share and wanting to help, and not expecting anything in return at all from the people you are doing it for.
You simply trust that your good deed will come back to you tenfold, in time, in some surprising and wonderful ways.
I practice Karmic Marketing here on the Internet by giving people things that I believe they will love, such as an e-book, or a course, or an audio, or a coupon.
On one level it strengthens our relationship.
But on the unseen level, it starts a spiritual circulation.
My giving now — done from my heart, with no expectation of return from the people I am doing it for — leads to getting later.
Why don’t more people practice Karmic Marketing?
Karmic Marketing is not done much because too many people are into survival.
They are afraid to let go.
They are desperate and they stay desperate because of this lack of trust in life.
But once you let go and trust, you step into a flow that is prosperity itself.
This very blog is Karmic Marketing at work.
I write posts here about whatever I want, doing my best to entertain, educate, inspire and inform. No one pays me for this. I could make more money writing a sales letter or a book or a website.
But here I am, writing for you.
What comes to me as a result of doing this?
Sometimes an Amazon gift certificate.
But I’m not doing it for the end result.
I’m doing it because I want to.
Because I love to.
Because I love you.
Note: You can pre-order Karmic Marketing on Amazon right now.
Bonus: Here’s a video from 2008 where I briefly discuss Karmic Marketing, with a nod to marketing legend Dan Kennedy:
Recently I found a one hundred year old copy of Wallace Wattles’ famous book, Financial Success Through Creative Thought, or, The Science of Getting Rich.
This 1915 leather bound edition of the book first privately published in 1910, is the one that inspired Rhonda Byrne to create her bestselling book and movie, The Secret.
While my computer took an hour to download new operating software, I reread Wattles’ book.
I’ve read it before, of course. But several things surprised me on this fresh reading.
Here are a few facts that jumped out:
I loved reading the book again because I could see clearly that many people who criticize or misunderstand the Law of Attraction have simply not read Wattles’ original text.
Or, if they did read his book, they glossed over all the parts they didn’t want to face, much like the many who watched the move The Secret and somehow fogged out when I appeared on screen and said you had to take action.
That’s the nature of unconscious limiting beliefs.
They filter reality so you only see what is a match to your beliefs.
Of course you have to take action.
Of course what you attract will come through natural means.
Of course it all begins with thought, which leads to behaviors, which leads to results.
Wattles is down to earth, very practical, and psychological in his approach.
He explains that you have to form an image of what you want to have, do, or be in your mind.
That image, held with faith and focus, will command the invisible elements of the world — the “stuff” that makes up everything, including you and me — to begin to form into your desired image. It will begin to unconsciously nudge yourself and other people to help you attract what you hold in mind.
You then have to work, with gratitude and holding your faith, in the direction of making it materialize, even if, at first, you can see no way to make it happen.
If I had to sum it up, I’d say that Wattles delivered a very simple, logical, and practical formula for attracting wealth. He’s not “woo woo” at all. He’s psychological rather than metaphysical, somehow knowing what psychologist William James declared –
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes” and —
“Act the part and you will become the part” and —
“Each of us literally chooses, by his way of attending to things, what sort of universe he shall appear to himself to inhabit.”
And something to think about from Wallace Wattles —
“The only service you can render God is to give expression to what he is trying to give the world, through you. The only service you can render God is to make the very most of yourself in order that God may live in you to the utmost of your possibilities.”
Wattles book is still in print, and copies of the original 1910 edition are available for free online. I urge you to find one and read it.
And then turn what you learn into action.
Wattles wrote – “The very best thing you can do for the whole world is to make the most of yourself.”
