Paying for Advice Can Cost You
Never put anyone else's mind above your own: The Buddha. Paid for advice can cost you more than cash

A love "guru" named Kathryn Alice tweeted recently that: A woman wrote me her MANICURIST rec'd my book b/c it helped her attract her hubby. I'll never know all who my work has helped but love it!

Statements like these, from any "dating expert" not just Alice, can be very alluring. Nothing wrong with being drawn in by something but one must be careful about falling into the addicted to hope syndrome as Professor Craig Jackson, head of psychology at Birmingham City University, told Fabulous Magazine.

“What seeking out gurus on the internet does is take us back to being children again. It’s a widespread ‘infantilisation’ of society where we look for a ‘parent figure’ in the child-like hope they will make everything right again. When people are desperate they will try anything.”

Like any other method or program that charges a fee, it would be interesting to have a quantitative peer-reviewed report on Kathryn Alice's running success rate for those who have done her work. At the risk of being seen as "lacking faith and trust" (everyone has their Achilles heel I guess), there is something to be said for statistical results reflected in the outcomes achieved for all the people who have read her books and done her workshops, etc... and stayed with her method for at least six months. If anything, verified and audited hard numbers, can be quite revealing about actual effectiveness of any product.

An example of what I am talking about it is: 80% of her fans met their soulmate within one to five years, and of that group, an average of 75% were still together after more than five years and 90% of those couples both claimed to still be happy with the relationship. While past performance is not indicative of future performance (especially when investing in the capital market funds these days), some kind of benchmark is helpful. A quick scan of other reviews on Amazon.com have revealed that not all of her customers had the outcome they wanted for whatever reason. Sometimes it's the person. Sometimes its the method. Sometimes it's just not a good fit between the two, and other times, it's a mystery only Sherlock Holmes can solve.

The biggest take-away I got from Kathryn Alice's book "Love Will Find You" and the method in it was, in the author's own words, "People who don't manifest are lazy. They are substituting external work for the deep inner work needed to resolve their resistance to love." That was said in writing and in response to a question on how come people who have done her work faithfully, beyond just buying the book, but those persons who indicated (assuming they are telling the truth) that they consistently did the following actions as prescribed in her book every day for at least six to nine months:
