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. 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. 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".
"The Science of Getting Rich Workbook" by Wallace D. Wattles and Donald Gordon Carty - The book that inspired "the Secret. The original 1910 version as described on the Oprah Winfrey Show and Larry King Live. Wattles says his book is "Intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. In addition to the complete original "Science of Getting Rich" you will have sections like; “Reflection” (which will serve as time markers), “Hourly Helps”(which will instruct you on how to handle the things which wear soul, spirit, and body almost to the snapping point), a section entitled “Interpreting the Word” (Glossary of certain terms) and an explanation of “The 12 Universal Laws” (as described today), excerpts and summaries of The Science of Being Well and The Science of Being Great and much much more.
Your argument does not negate the law of attraction in fact it supports it from a different perspective…here is my initiation experience way back in the 97s…here i was in deep financial s..t no money..married to a man who held the strings to my life…and was forcebly trying to get me deported from his country…i escaped that reality daily within my inner world where all was good and possible..along the way i read people like schati dwayne..one day i saw an add in a magazine a contest to win a brand new toshiba computer..but alas it was only available to us residents…which i was not..my desire kicked in..i really wanted it a brand new computer..i put down the magazine and closed my eyes and visualized myself flowing upward to a place where this computer floated around the ethers and immagined myself grasping it and bringing it back to me…that was it this whole excersise i am describing as i remember it because it was not a conciouse event just a day dream and then it was gone..forgotten..exept for the reality that three months later my son came to visit and brought some newly found friends…whom as a gift for mom brought a brand new toshiba computer…flash back to my day dream…so dont know if that was working according to the law of attraction or the power of visualization…what ever it was it made a believer an practioner out of me…that toshiba gave birth to a multimillion dollar domain name business…thank you for allowing me to share my story.
5. Challenge Your Limitations. We tend to place limitations on ourselves that we do not need to have. Here are a few limitations that make no sense: being too old, young, smart, stupid, wrong color, wrong sex, too tall, short, not enough money etc. If your mind falls into one of these or other limitations, wipe it out and move forward with your dreams.
COMMITMENT: You'll want to commit yourself to the process because one necessary piece of information to manifest money is that there is a time lag between emitting the energy and the response, so bear this in mind when starting your process to manifest money. Also, the Universe responds energetically to commitment. All things are possible when you commit to something because your commitment attracts your desires.
Excellent question. I do not believe so at all as I see many parallels between traditional religious views and the Law of Attraction. My personal view is that God creates through us…and it is our connection to God (or the universe/spirit guides/angels/etc) that allows creation to flow easily and pleasantly. In my opinion, our connection is evidence through our feelings, and the better we feel, the more connected we are.
It is important to realize that by connecting with the feeling of space between thoughts, we contact and merge into what we most want to feel: Love. Connecting with love empowers us to change thoughts and feelings and create pure intentions. And this love is found INSIDE us. In our hearts…..between thoughts. On one level, we do choose our thoughts. When we are conscious, we can entertain thoughts, ideas, and feelings that empower and uplift us.
Please be advised in the first place, that it is widely known that we do not manifest from the brain, from the mind alone. Since the brain naturally has a positive and a negative side and that also is nature of thoughts, if our manifestation is successful (and I wish for everyone that it will be) that we are automatically attracting the equal negative side with it.
Take your attention off the thing that is upsetting you and replace it with a more pleasant thought. Even though it’s easier to focus on negative thoughts, they don’t bring you what you want. If a thought is upsetting you, replace it with a thought that feels better. This new thought will create momentum in the direction of what you desire. The new thought doesn’t have to be on the same topic; it just has to be a better thought. The goal is to raise your vibration with your thinking. A higher vibration will always yield a higher outcome in every area of your life.
Napoleon Hill published two books on the theme. The first, The Law of Success in 16 Lessons (1928), directly and repeatedly references the Law of Attraction and proposes that it operates by use of radio waves transmitted by the brain. The second, Think and Grow Rich (1937), went on to sell 100 million copies by 2015. Hill insisted on the importance of controlling one's own thoughts in order to achieve success, as well as the energy that thoughts have and their ability to attract other thoughts. He mentions a "secret" to success and promises to indirectly describe it at least once in every chapter. It is never named and he says that discovering it on one's own is far more beneficial. Many people have argued over what it actually is, some claim it's the Law of Attraction. Hill states the "secret" is mentioned no fewer than a hundred times, yet reference to "attract" is used less than 30 times in the text. He further claims that people can obtain what they desire through thought of definite purpose.
The woman who makes the most sense, Abraham Hicks, was deleted from the Secret. The Secret made no sense until I found her deleted scene. If you go to youtube you can find the clip. The Law of Attraction is spiritual and only the Secret tried to use this flimsy physics thing to convince people. It is not about physics it is about the non physical and the spiritual. It does work. I have had it work and it happened in a way that has no earthly explaination. Its not always consistant and its much deeper than jsut getting something material. It can be life changing and I wouldn’t advise entering into it lightly. Its a spiritual power and it can be dangerous in the wrong hands. I had to back off. It was getting too trippy for me. If I told you the freaky things that started happening to me you would think I was a nut. I’m just going to say its a lot bigger than it seems on the outside.
You may desire to succeed in a certain line of work; we will say, in the literary field. If your desire for success in that field is full and persistent, the power of that desire will constantly increase the life, the activity and the capacity of your literary faculties, and you will naturally do better work in that field. The same is true with regard to any other line of work, because your desire for greater success in your work will arouse to fuller action those faculties that you employ in that work. But, in every case, the desire must be deep, whole-souled, persistent and strong. It is therefore evident that results in all lines of endeavour depend very largely upon the power of desire, and that no one can afford to let their desires lag for a moment.
This type of thing happens because we showed up, desperate, and without clarity about what we really wanted. The same applies to manifesting your Soulmate. You already know what you DON’T want. So let’s put the main focus on putting together a list of what you DO WANT that is in alignment with your core values and expresses what you want to experience and share in your new relationship.
I like to think some people would just know what I’m going through before I even meet them and I think you may be one of them… I have angels that communicate with me from time to time. I have this burning sensation to tell you everything but my angels are warning me not to… but what you have here is a really great foundation of knowledge towards angels and what they are trying to communicate with you… just know that this website has helped me and in the kingdom of god I am the duke so it means a lot… this makes me feel warm to share in my beliefs and it’s crazy that society makes you feel crazy to believe in such things like talking to angels I mean we’ve done it for thousands of years but now that we have tv and the internet we are too smart to believe in fairytales but that’s just it, it’s not a fairytale it’s reality and we don’t have to go across the universe to know if other beings exist… they have been here assisting in the shadows because their presence wouldn’t be fully understood and we would mistake them as gods as we have for thousands of years but they are not gods they are angels and the ones that are here for the most part walk in love and they want nothing more but to see you walk towards god, heaven, and happiness…. for we all are capable of love and eventually that will be what we all strive for… eventually in time we will find peace and with assistance we could all find our way to heaven… to touch the stars we must not dream… we must reach.
You’re just playing, and in ‘imagination land’ everything is possible and you know it. You don’t question, you just know. Let that knowing transcend any “but” thoughts your logical mind comes up with! Have fun with this and leave the logical mind at home. This is about using the power of thoughts, emotions and your intentions. You don’t need to worry if or how it will manifest.
