Not only have I had the opportunity to read the new book by Dyan Garris called Money and Manifesting, I had the honor of interviewing her. Ms. Garris incorporates her years as an energy worker with her clear understanding of what it takes to manifest the abundance many people desire. Her book is perfect for anyone who equates money to power and self-worth would be attracted to manifesting money.
Over the next few minutes you have the opportunity to get to know more about Dyan Garris. I’m sure once you finish reading the interview you will want to get your own copy of Money and Manifesting.

Kathleen: Give whatever background on the book or yourself you would like my readers to know.
Dyan: I am a clairvoyant counselor. To paraphrase, I’m an energy worker and a psychic. “Money and Manifesting” was the next natural step in the work that I’m currently doing.
Kathleen: What inspired you to write this book?
Dyan: I wrote “Money and Manifesting” because I was counseling a lot of people for whom the principles of “The Secret” were not working. I was seeing a lot of frustration out there. The laws of attraction and the power of positive thinking are only part of the real “secret.” Plus, they aren’t a secret. I felt very strongly that if you’re going to resurrect the basic principles of how energy works then you should tell the whole story of how energy works. I wanted to teach people how to really apply these principles to transform their lives.  I wanted to give people specific instructions on how to really do this, not just think about doing it. The energy that we use to manifest does not just emanate from the mind, although that is one step. Manifesting is an integrative process.
Kathleen: When did the idea for the subject matter first come to you?
Dyan: I had the idea in my head for about a year before I actually wrote it. I wanted to see what happened with “The Secret” first.  The laws of attraction work because they are universal laws that apply to energy. Form absolutely follows thought. But for people who are blocked at their very core, this is just not going to happen. They won’t be able to manifest much of anything or they will be able manifest in a limited manner. Then they will get frustrated and return to their old patterns and keep on attracting the very things they don’t want. They first have to learn how to clear the pathway for energy to flow.
Kathleen: Who do you feel would be most attracted to manifesting money?
Dyan: Anyone who equates money to power and self-worth would be attracted to manifesting money. Maybe almost every adult would be potentially attracted to manifesting money, because as a whole we’ve convinced ourselves that we need these pieces of paper to survive. Of course we don’t, but that is what we’ve convinced ourselves of and that is the illusion that we’re currently operating in. One of the reasons that I didn’t title the book “Manifesting Money” is because my book is about money and it is also about manifesting and exactly how to do it. It isn’t just about manifesting “money.” Money is energy. When you get done reading the book you hopefully have learned how to manifest not just money, but everything you desire to manifest.
Kathleen: What makes your book different from others in this genre?
Dyan: There are a lot of differences. One big difference is that parts of the book are fictionalized. The characters are people that everyone can relate to in one way or another. They each in their own way have blocks to getting what they really want.  If we can identify with someone or something, this gives us a platform for change and transformation without a lot of effort.  The fiction is wrapped around the information for a very good reason. Energetically, this automatically engages left brain with right brain for purposes of an effortless exercise in integration. It’s a multi-dimensional book that is designed for automatic shift, just as my CDs are designed to do the same thing using sound. Also, there isn’t any point in rehashing the laws of attraction, so I didn’t do that. These are now resonating in mass consciousness as the truths that they are. So, now that we know about the importance of attraction and the importance of positive thinking, where do we go from there? How do we apply this? That is what makes my book different.
Kathleen: What is your favorite part of the book?
Dyan: My favorite part of the book is the very end, because it’s really a beginning. It’s just like the channeled message from the “Sunset” card in my angel card deck. It says, “The sun that’s’ setting slowly is but a glimmer of what’s to be, so know that as you go along an ending is a beginning for thee.” I also like the end because something happened when I was writing it that was completely astounding to me. I won’t spoil the story, but I will say that I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen there between the characters at the end. When it unfolded the way it did, I was astonished.
Kathleen: This is not your first book and likely not your last? When did you begin writing?
Dyan: I wrote my first book when I was a teenager. My youngest brother was fascinated with an Old English sheepdog that I had. So I wrote and illustrated a little book about the dog’s adventures. It was fun.  “Money and Manifesting” probably is my last book because I’m almost done building what I set out to build. That is a toolbox filled with tools that people could use to move forward on the path. At the base of that is “Voice of the Angels – A Healing Journey Spiritual Cards” and at the top is “Money and Manifesting.”
I have two more things to put in the box. One is a DVD for chakra balance and the other is one more music CD which will vibrate to the eighth chakra and beyond. We only really talk about seven chakras but there are so many more.
The journey has been its own “healing journey” for me too. And in the process of this I’ve learned how to easily transform energy.  Everything I’ve built, both books and music, has gotten progressively higher in vibration. That’s what my CD series is about – raising and transforming the energy field through sound frequency and vibration. It’s pure happiness to be able to share that knowledge with and have the opportunity to translate that to others, whether that is through the written word, through cards and drawings, or through music and meditation. These things are joyful expressions of spirit.
Kathleen: What do you enjoy most about being an author?
Dyan: The gift of being able to connect and help other people through communication is something I’m really passionate about. Creating something tangible out of thoughts is a big part of manifesting. When you’re able to bring those communications “up and out,” that is very healing.
Kathleen: How can people contact you?
Dyan: I spend most of my time at my main website There is a free angel card reading there and I write a Daily Channeled Message as well. There is a lot of activity there and I’m always adding new information. The site feels very alive and exciting to me. It “speaks” and there is a “voice.”  Also, I’m at That’s a good place to hear some of the music and I do love connecting with people. So be sure to send me a friend request.
Thank you, Kathleen for the opportunity to connect with you and your friends and readership. I really enjoyed the interview.
