I would ask her what she really believes about relationships. What does she really believe about men? (All men are dogs? That belief won’t bring you one who isn’t.) What was her parents’ relationship like? What do her girlfriends think about relationships – what kinds of experiences are they having and what are they saying – because we are greatly influenced by the people we hang with.
Others have questioned the references to modern scientific theory, and have maintained, for example, that the Law of Attraction misrepresents the electrical activity of brainwaves.[50] Victor Stenger and Leon Lederman are critical of attempts to use quantum mysticism to bridge any unexplained or seemingly implausible effects, believing these to be traits of modern pseudoscience.[51][8][9]
The secret is utter bullshit, yes indeed. Thank you for saying so. All it is, is a “blame the victim” mentality in reverse and gussied up in pseudoscience and stolen mystic references. The SNL skit in which the oppressed and dying people of Darfur were chastised for not having happy thoughts pretty much said it all. Every person associated with it should be ashamed of themselves.

The problem here is that people are convinced that good things could happen naturally, just applying a revolutionary new knowledge which -of course- requires almost no effort. Then, when people fail to achieve their goals, the light turns on: they didn’t tried hard enough, they didn’t put as much effort as required, or they didn’t “think correctly”.
Yeah right… seriously?? That was my first thought when I read this article. I read this at 8:30ish last night. Then I read the first comment. Just try it. So I did. I pulled out some ruffled dollars and smelled them. I wouldn’t have imagined doing this before. Today at work (not even 24hrs later) , a couple came in that I had been brushing off. The last time I saw them, I didn’t think they were interested in the quotes I had for them. However, I gave them their rates, and they bought it without blinking. So on top of my regular salary, I made an extra commission of almost $600. Sorry to be so long but I almost hit the floor when they were walking out. I have been working a part time job on the side every other weekend and haven’t made an extra $600 in a month. I’ve put my family on hold and lost sleep trying to work ever little hour I can. I’m excited can you tell! Thank you for this article. Even if its only once… I’m a believer it works. I want to buy my dream house. That’s how I got here. Maybe I need to go sniff that 🙂

The Law of Attraction has been popularized in the early 21st century by books and films such as The Secret. This 2006 film and the subsequent book[49] use interviews with New Thought authors and speakers to explain the principles of the proposed metaphysical law that one can attract anything that one thinks about consistently. Writing for the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, Mary Carmichael and Ben Radford wrote that "neither the film nor the book has any basis in scientific reality", and that its premise contains "an ugly flipside: if you have an accident or disease, it's your fault".[47]


Be as clear as a laser beam. The ‘’ideal’’ effortless and conscious manifestation should look like a laser beam. Laser beam is 100% focused on one goal with all its energy and purity. We have to be certain and focused just as the laser beam is. If there is anything holding you back from believing or focusing on your goal then this something will be stopping your from manifesting your desire. I know that it’s very difficult to be crystal clear and focused but also shorter periods of time can do the magic because it brings up back to what I wrote earlier — conscious decision can create miracles. If we decide with all our will and focus then we can change an unwanted outcome into something what we want instead.
The fast-cut montage that begins the Secret video features scenes from a mysterious green tablet - the Emerald Tablet. The Secret book begins with an eight-word excerpt attributed to the Emerald Tablet, circa 3000 BCE: "As above, so below. As within, so without." But after the brief acknowledgement, Byrne and her team of best selling authors and coaches never again mention this Emerald Tablet nor the Hermetic philosophy and teachings associated with it. 

Now let’s explore the idea of putting yourself first. This takes commitment. What ways are you not putting yourself first in your life? Are you giving time to people that are draining you? Are you not being honest with the men or women you date by not saying you want a relationship? Are you giving your time to men or women who are unavailable? Are you giving time to a man or woman that does not fulfill you but loves you, simply because you feel protected by the fact that you’re in control and are not vulnerable to getting hurt by them? These are all ideas to think about. Also, this is partially what I mean about working with the universe. You have to show up and face the things that have challenged you so you can personally grow and be the best version of yourself that you can be.


Thank you for this. My friend, Tim Brownson led me to your blog. There really are a number of people out there who are being, and will be, harmed by The Secret. This is not an alarmist point of view. Rather, it is the view of a psychotherapist and author who has heard from many people about how The Secret has reinforced their self-blame for such things as disease (M.S., cancer), for childhood sexual abuse, for rape, for the death of a child, etc. It is important that we speak out about this. Please consider my perspective at http://www.thesecretantidote.com. And please help me distribute “The Antidote.” (The Secret will cost you, but The Antidote is free — on line and free.) Thanks.

If you begin losing hope or becoming frustrated, it will be hard to manifest money – emergency or not. Forget about achieving any specific results. Take some deep, calming breaths and begin looking for the good things in your life. Look at your life with appreciation, realizing that in this exact moment in time, this very second, everything is okay and you have all that you need. Let go of the outcome and rest assured that you will manifest emergency money. You will manifest wealth…good things will come to you.
If you choose an amount that feels way out of reach, make it smaller. If the amount you have chosen feels too small and that you will still be wishing you had more money after it comes,  then make it bigger. Most importantly, whatever amount of money you are choosing to have, mean what you say. This is so simple, but this is where most people fall down and the rest of their efforts don’t yield successful results.
Your soul is created for a connection to twin and God and is very powerful and brings you directly toward God because the soul receives Divine Love flowing inside and is the same way God loves you. God created you in the same image of him and twin also. You cant stop loving twin, there is no limit no matter how separated you are, they are with you energetically for they are part of the Divine in you. They know you love them. Love them for who they are and allow the divine powers to teach them what love is. He teaches the twins to live in truth and dont hide from each other and no shame or guilt and be vulnerable. Soul love opens doors at the soul level to obey and listen to the lesson you need to learn. You were made for ea other to unite in Soul Love and have same Divine love vibration. Your soul vibration and love in soul is the only one which has to be taken by twin, nobody else can take or match. God gives vibration and creates you and from that vibration created another one made in your image and likeness for each other. Eve was given to Adam as his twin flame as a helpmate. A pure Divine Love inside given from God to love unconditionally. Powerful Divine Love inside will open the door to unite to twin. You could be having dreams about them and show you everything in order for you to awaken and to open your soul to the precious gift given to you to find perfect Divine Soul Love as you live by the truth. When things are in place door opens. Powerful love inside will not die. A deep love inside of soul of who you are as Divine Beings for you are both ONE soul connected to God. So Be It. As it was in the Beginning, So Is It Now In the End. Return as One Sacred Flame to Source of Where YOU Came From in Light and Love shining radiance from Your Eyes. lol and hugs to all. Love and Light, Uriel
12) We’re Not Perfect: The LOA is a “perfect law” and should result in a “perfect” life. We are told that no goal is too big if you can think it; there is no such thing as an unrealistic goal. From The Secret “You can think your way to the perfect state of health, the perfect body, the perfect weight, and eternal youth. You can bring it into being, through your consistent thinking of perfection.” Reality check -life is not perfect. It can be great, fantastic, amazing, incredible, even optimal. But perfect? Won’t happen. What’s the problem with this way of thinking? Why not expect perfection? Fantasizing and striving for perfect makes you feel better in the short term but actually reduces your chance of attaining your goals and results in more unhappiness and blaming. If you are only going to be satisfied with perfect results – perfect health, perfect body, perfect family, perfect marriage, perfect friendships, perfect kids, perfect house, perfect job, perfect life; you are in for a perfect disappointment. Research studies support this.

Everything is energy. And when it comes to manifesting your desires, it’s important to remember that your reality is being sculpted on a moment by moment basis by your predominant energy and vibration. You can meditate, declutter your home, make sweet love, sing, pray, cook or laugh until you nearly want to pee your pants – these are all excellent ways to amp up your frequency so the Universe can deliver your goodies.
Lovely beginner’s article. I would also add to this article that all matter being energy can be attracted by our own energy- that energy we call emotions. We should idntify our emotions and where they are felt- Anger in the head or the heart, love in the head or fear in the stomach. We should then master those emotions by recreating the ‘feeling in the body’. For example, if we are not feeling loving, but angry we should push that anger down from the head to the heart and change it from a pressing and painful to a fluffy and open… Now – after you have mastered to willingly and consciously managing the body energies, now you are ready to begin manifesting. Also, I would add that it is good to write a precise ‘shopping list’ for the universe. The more precise, the longer it takes to organize, but the surprise and mix comes out really well. By long it could mean seconds or years, depending on your belief. A million is as fast as a button
Banish guilt and feelings of self-doubt from your life and your internal world forever. No negotiation. I did it, and it worked like a dream. You have no more right or need to feel any more guilty than a butterfly. And like a butterfly, you are free to fly and celebrate your uniqueness today. You are ready for a life of awesome results and celebration. But are you ready to give yourself permission to do this yet?
In the book of Joel, the Lord’s advice is in harmony with this practice: “Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.'” (Joel 3:10). It is truly as simple as these seven words form the Bible advise. You want what follows I am to be congruent with your highest self, which is God. Beginning with your inner dialogue, simply change the words that define your concept of yourself.
Rhonda Byrne published in 2006 the film The Secret wherein she emphasized thinking about what each person wants to obtain, but also to infuse the thought with the maximum possible amount of emotion. She claims the combination of thought and feeling is what attracts the desire.[27] The Secret says your subconscious mind can control everything that happens around you, including both positive experiences, like having someone call you from miles away, and negative experiences, like death. The Byrne underlines the power of the subconscious mind by asking the reader to take full control of these thoughts, in order to achieve things in life, with the mind, as much as with action. Another similar book is James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, which says reality can be manifested by man.[28] Man and the universe have a force of attraction between them similar to a magnetic attraction. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, says readers can achieve seemingly impossible goals by learning how to bring the mind itself under control. The Power by Rhonda Byrne, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle are similar. While personal testimonies claim the secret and the law to have worked for them, a number of skeptics have criticized Rhonda Byrne's film and book. The New York Times Book Review called the secret pseudoscience and an "illusion of knowledge".[29]
I think what makes success in general is a little bit of attraction and mostly attitude. I do think that life gives you opportunities in subtle ways like syncronicities, but later it’s up to you to take advantage of them. However, I also think that if something is really not meant to be, no matter how much you want it, it won’t come or it’ll come in the wrong form.
The degree of your self-acceptance will dictate the quality of your relationship. If you try to manifest a relationship when you're full of desperation and you have low self-esteem, you may indeed succeed, but the relationship will almost certainly be sub-par. You might drive your partner away, unconsciously cause drama in your relationship, or--more likely--attract a partner who is not good for you.
For simplicity’s sake, I’m going to use the abbreviation LOA throughout the article when I’m speaking about the Secret or the Law of Attraction. Simply put, the LOA is a universal law that states every person has the ability to attract things into their life with their thoughts and intentions. If someone is thinking and believing negative things all the time, they will attract negative things into their experience. If someone is thinking positive things all the time, they will attract that into their experience. In theory, someone could also use the LOA to attract situations, experiences, and material objects into their lives.
It's not enough to wish. The Law of Attraction is not magic, it's just a way to train your subconscious mind; you must still take action to reach your goal. You are the one who must change before you circumstances do. The road to what you desire is through personal transformation. If this means that you have to learn a whole new style of relating to people to have the relationship that you want, then so be it.
If you follow this strategy without omitting any single step, you will start attracting whatever you want and it will begin to manifest. Have a great combination of clear idea of what you want, a specific goal with a time frame, high level of desire, high intensity of belief, frequent visualization and repetition of your positive thoughts to attract and manifest whatever you desire in your life.

I am trained as a "hard science" PhD in Pharmacology and do understand scientific method. The LOA is not based on scientific method and the erroneous conclusions in metaphysics are based on incorrect scientific assumptions. These assumptions may have seemed reasonable in the 1800s that there was no air around us, only ether and that thoughts only transmit through ether. Perhaps this assumption is correct, however we are not surrounded by ether.
Hi Andrea :-)……just received your NL…..and the article here is absolutely supportive(love the one on the subconscious mind,too).Your website(name) is alive and radiating – you walk the talk :D. I tried the contact sheet again today,don’t know if it worked.Howsoever,be sure i’ll let people know about your work.If this website raises it’s vibration further on,it’ll be good for all us here :-).Like you already know i’m on twitter taking the 100 day’s of happiness journey….and i’ll send you some happy music……aloha ……Jil 🙂
4) No Plan: If the best way for me to achieve my goals is to live as if I’ve already achieved them, then there is no reason to make further plans to do so! Making plans shows the universe that you doubt its ability and lack faith. Doubt is negative and you will then attract more negative and not get your desired item. In the book The Secret, Jack Canfield proposed, “Our job is not to figure out the how.” “…trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it.” Studies show that this way of thinking results in greater short term satisfaction, but less motivation and lower chance of achieving goals. Curious that Jack Canfield’s website sells a program to teach you how to make an “Action Plan.”

Finally the man was told that they had given up. He was far too powerful. There was nothing they could do to stop him, and they were going to surrender. They invited him to a major world summit and told him they would reveal him to all of humanity so he could share his message. He was brought on board a military transport aircraft. Once airborne, he was shot repeatedly. His body was divided into many different sections, each of which was stored in a super-high-tech energy-shielded container. Jet aircraft rushed up to the plane in sequence and scrambled the containers all over the Earth, as far apart as possible. The contents were then thoroughly and completely destroyed. It was hoped that this would prevent him from being able to regenerate himself.


Others have questioned the references to modern scientific theory, and have maintained, for example, that the Law of Attraction misrepresents the electrical activity of brainwaves.[50] Victor Stenger and Leon Lederman are critical of attempts to use quantum mysticism to bridge any unexplained or seemingly implausible effects, believing these to be traits of modern pseudoscience.[51][8][9]
It turns out I was on a universal high because a few nights later I awoke at 3 a.m. from a dream that had supplied the answer: Paint the floor to look like acid-stained concrete! The next morning I searched the internet and contacted every faux painter within a 50-mile radius. Only one, Deanne Lenehan Cunningham, agreed to come and take a look. She had never done a floor and was concerned whether her products would adhere to the sealant now on my floor. She said she would talk to the manufacturer, see if was possible, then give us an estimate. 
Law of attraction holds every star in the universe and the planets that surround us. Our cells within our body, the ocean that separates land, the thoughts that become actions, just like the bees that are attracted to flowers. This force is what holds us together. We are all attracted to different things, places, people, tastes, and we desire the attraction of love in all ways. Attraction is the force that draws people, animals, groups, and nations together because we all share one common interest: The love that you desire. So as The Power of Now book explains, the force of attraction is the force of love! Attraction is love. When you feel an attraction to your favorite food, you’re feeling love for food. Without attraction, you wouldn’t feel anything or have a desire for anything. Everything would be the same which would block all emotions and soul driven aspects, which incidentally is what drives our lives. Attraction is connected to the soul. Everything outside of us has no bearing because the soul is the driver of your actual connection and your true manifestation. Through the force of attraction, you feel love, and love is tapping into your soul where you hold power.
Wow!!!, people should help me thank the universe for their love for me!!!. Today if one should pop up in my room, the person might say I’m now getting mad. I was just talking alone during meditation as if my request was granted!! and the whole of today was just full of joy for me! this is soo simple. if you don’t believe, please just meditate for me:):):).
This step is important because those competing signals can be quite strong. Weaken the signal or change the direction of those thoughts like this: Approach those feelings with the love and compassion that you would feel towards a lonely, small child or a hurt animal. When you love yourself, you open up the possibility to receive your greatest desires, and you begin to only desire the things that are best for you.
It’s difficult to free yourself completely from doubt, fear or feeling as though you don’t deserve something. Your instinct might try to combat those feelings using negative thoughts like, “Don’t be afraid” or even direct conflicts like, “You deserve this.” Unfortunately, such methods are ineffective and simply don’t work because they reinforce negative thoughts and feelings.
Arielle:It’s called the Law of Attraction and it says that you will attract to you those people, events and experiences that match your state of being. If you focus on having gratitude for the love, companionship and joy you have in your life right now, you will attract more of that into your life. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will send out a message of lack and you will attract more lack into your life.

OMG! This was happening to me for years and it was in my search for answers that I really got to understand law of attraction more deeply. For 20 years, each of my boyfriends was just like the last – verbally abusive, didn’t listen to me or respect me, and ignored me and cheated on me. I talked to every ‘spiritual’ teacher I could find, and many of them told me to look at where I was abusive, or where I exhibited the same behavior.
Hi Toni! Tough question! Focus on holding that feeling of love in your heart. (Because it always starts inside of you, not with the other person!) Then keep on striving to become the kind of person you think you’d be if you were still in that relationship. (It’s all about attracting them back, not chasing them down!) But of course, we can only ever control our own energy and vibration (not the other person) so just focus on doing what you can! Good luck! 💜

This can be done through affirmations and surrounding yourself in the energy of abundance. You can do this by dressing up in your best clothes, daily gratitude practice to be thankful for what you do have right now and also repeating mantras and affirmations that help to rewire your feelings about money. This can help so much to get you into the feeling space to welcome in prosperity. Feel worthy. 

If you think that once you have money, you will become stronger, you’re crazy. Absolutely deluded! More likely — if you actually did manifest money from that kind of vibe — you’d grow even weaker. This would be a bad outcome for you, even though it seems like what you want. You’d be a weak-minded, weak-hearted person with more money, and you’d still see the money as more powerful than you, even while it’s in your possession. You’d then become attached to it and afraid of losing it because you’d still mistakenly see it as a power source. It would become a source of security for you, a constantly vulnerable one. The more money you had, the more paranoid you’d become about losing it. This would really mess you up big time. So be very, very glad that you naturally attract less money when you think of money as a power source. If you invite money into your life from that crazy frame of giving away your power, then money will become your Master, and you will be forever its slave. Don’t even go there!

Law of attraction is a law of nature, like gravity is a law of nature. That means its working all the time – bringing you good and bad stuff, according to your thoughts and beliefs and other inner emotions that we are mostly unaware of. If this person was my client, and many of my clients have said this to me, I would ask a lot of questions. I would ask her about self worth.
My divine ideas happen most when I am not trying to figure everything out. Usually, I am in the shower or working out. The actions just speak to me as nudges. This article was a nudge for me too. It just feel right to be typing this in this exact moment. My dream is to further my career in being an international writer, and I want to have massive exposure online. I could have just paid for a bunch of ads or post fifty times on Medium, but that doesn’t align to my highest being. My word for today was to share with you how to manifest more easily.
