I have watched The Secret
on DVD many times. You simply can't absorb everything that is taught in one or two
First off, it is necessary to at least briefly explain The Law of Attraction-Vibration
. It essentially means this:
Energy attracts like energy.
If you project a feeling of having something and that feeling is joyous and grateful, and you believe you can have it and you believe you deserve it,
you will attract that thing to you like a magnet.
That is the entire Law in a nutshell.
I agree that it takes a while after one begins applying the principles before one's personal reality starts to unfold in a more positive direction.
In The Secret Universal Mind Meditation by Kelly Howell
, she mentions
that it takes a minimum of six weeks
before one can start to see beneficial changes in one's life. I find that point intriguing.
If one's circumstances are dire, then just using The Law of Attraction-Vibration
is usually insufficient to change one's situation. On the
other hand, doing it correctly entails much more than just applying positive thinking and New Age ideas. What this really means is that the positive
changes occur gradually and are therefore usually not highly efficient in the short term.
One of the key points made in The Secret
is that wishful thinking and visualization is not enough for it to work. One has to actually project
the positive feelings of already having what one wants. That feeling is what provides the power for positive change to occur in one's life. I loved
how Dr. Michael Beckwith
put it. He is one of the more inspirational speakers in The
on DVD. Of course,
(co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
- which I have yet to read) and Bob Proctor
also did a great job. Actually, they all did.
The one thing that I have found to possibly be even more important than applying The Law of Attraction-Vibration - especially for those of us who have
a clear vision of what we want and have been projecting that in meditation for years - is what they refer to in The Secret
as an Attitude of
. A number of the speakers say that this is essential if one wants more abundance in one's life, in any and every direction. I have
found this to be the most important aspect of the entire Secret teaching
For those of us experienced or advanced mystics who use Heart Chakra Radiance
in order to directly target our growth towards eventually becoming Co-Creators after our return to The Light (and be able to manifest with The Light
an improvement to the basic human condition), I have discovered an innovation to practicing an Attitude of Gratitude. Instead of just listing and
feeling grateful for that which we already have, which we can remind ourselves by carrying around a Gratitude Rock: when one Radiates Gratitude
via the Heart Chakra - as in HCR - one can significantly increase the intensity of the feeling generated. To in essence become a Gratitude Machine.
When this happens, abundance comes into one's life - as well as higher awareness about all sorts of things - FASTER than through the conventional
application of an Attitude of Gratitude
In a related and recent magazine article about The Secret
by Jack Canfield, he identifies what he terms rabbit goals
or small goals, and
or large goals. The latter, like winning a lottery or becoming independently wealthy in some other way, takes more time and
energy in daily focus than the former, like attracting a cup of coffee or arranging a car space in advance.
