It’s not enough just to say your affirmations or create a vision board and hope for the best. The universe speaks the language of emotions. So even if you are affirming “I am rich and successful,” you have to feel it for it to make a difference. To call in an experience you actually want to have, start to cultivate the emotion of the experience as if it were already real, already happening.
I loved the movie initially as it allowed me to talk about all sorts of important stuff like meditation and visualization with clients for the first time. Then the backlash, with people giving up because they say The Seceret and just knew that bad luck was heading their way. As JA said, there is NO LAW, it’s a hypothesis or a theory, and should be tretaed as such.
Is there any truth to “The Secret”? Is there any validity to the law of attraction? As with most other popular ideas, “The Secret” has a nugget of truth that is expanded to unbiblical and illogical extremes. For example, a thesis of the law of attraction is that our physical health is determined by our thoughts and feelings. It has been medically proven that stress and worry are harmful to the body, while joy and peace actually aid in the healing process. The Bible agrees, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones” (Proverbs 17:22). “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart, and good news gives health to the bones” (Proverbs 15:30). As David was struggling with the guilt of his unconfessed, evil actions, he declared, “When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long” (Psalm 32:3). Our thoughts and feelings do have an impact on our physical well-being. However, this is due to how God designed our bodies…not because of our connection with a universal energy force and our negativity or positivity attracting negative or positive physical symptoms.
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 🙂
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!
When you understand the answers to these types of questions about manifesting your soulmate, your mind and heart begin to focus on trying to find love that is based on true mutual understanding and excitement. You can do all kinds of creative techniques to bolster the designing of your life partner. For example, Law of Attraction experts recommend daily visualization exercises in which you conjure up a vivid sense of what your life partner would be like. Meanwhile, you can also create a dream board that represents all the traits you’re looking for and your image of how this relationship will improve your life.
Consider this: The part of you that really WANTS to create something, is NOT the creator in you. Wanting or needing is not the creative energy that supports effortless manifestation. On the other hand, the part of you that watches life change with a twinkle in your eye, that dreams for the fun of dreaming, regardless of circumstances, IS the CREATOR in you. This part is free, fearless, and knowing. BE this part, and you will SEE change arise spontaneously.
Venus is the ruler of Taurus and has been retrograde since October 5th/6th (until November 16th) in the opposite sign of Scorpio where the Sun is at this lunation. This retrograde period is a time of re-orientation of things connected to Venus which could include relationships, friendships, love, values, money, beauty, pleasures, fun, art, or creativity. You can read more about this Venus Retrograde here.
During Thanksgiving of 1992, Carrey wrote himself a check for $10 million for ‘Acting Services Rendered’ and he dated it for Thanksgiving of 1995. He carried that check around with him no matter what he did, and it deteriorated away in his wallet. But just before Thanksgiving of 1995 he received word that he would be paid $10 million for ‘Dumb and Dumber.’
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.
3) Follow your heart. If there’s something you feel inspired to do, do it. If there’s something you don’t want to do, don’t do it. You don’t have to kiss 100 frogs; you don’t have to go out to meet people, go on online dating sites, or do anything that does not feel right. If you are the kind of person who likes to stay at home, your soulmate could literally have a crash on your yard! It’s happened before. Only do what you want to do and feels right!
Initially this surprised her. She could dismiss it as luck… or as some kind of trick… or as a momentary lapse of her part. Then when it kept happening, it began to frustrate her. I helped her shift that frustration to amusement by pointing out that she was really good at finding bottle caps and smudges, and we had some laughs about that. She just needed to adjust her mind a little bit more to notice the coins.
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. Thom Rutledge
At first when she would walk past a coin, and I’d pick it up and say, “Look at this, Emily. There was a nickel there, and you walked right past it! Your eyes definitely saw it because you were looking in that direction, but the coin didn’t register in your mind. You still need to adjust yourself to the right vibe. Remember — the coins are everywhere! You just have to command your eyes to notice them.”
The Spiritual Explanation: Many people believe that the Law of Attraction works by aligning God or the Universe with our wishes. We are all made of energy, and our energy operates at different frequencies. We can change our frequency of energy with positive thoughts, especially gratitude for what we already have. By using grateful, positive thoughts and feelings and by focusing on our dreams — rather than our frustrations, we can change the frequency of our energy, and the law of attraction brings positive things into our lives. What we attract depends on where and how we focus our attention, but we must believe that it’s already ours, or soon will be.
And this wants to be understood fully. Since the majority of us approach spirituality with a world-view of pure positivity. This is not wrong, but it is not (yet) the complete picture. It requires both positive and negative to create. And negative wants to be understood as nothing bad nor wrong. It is of equal value. If you fully and truly understand this, you can create from the mind.
So take care of yourself, and try to always look presentable, even if it’s just going to the local supermarket! It’s the feelings you’ll get from this kind of attitude that counts, not your outfit. You will feel good in your skin and your vibration will radiate around you. When you don’t feel good, even if you’re the most attractive human being (physically) you will repel others from you.
The fabulous part about manifesting your soulmate is that you can actually have all those things you crave! Want someone who will treat you with dignity and respect? Done. Is it important to you to find a partner who finds joy in scouring antique shops on Saturdays followed by cider sipping? No problem. Does your ideal partner sign up to run mud-filled obstacle races and would rather sleep on the ground under a tarp than in a 5-Star hotel? It’s a cinch.
Great article! I feel exactly the same way. I wrote a similar article about The Secret and the so-called Law of Attraction back in September called What to Do When The Secret Doesn’t Work”, partly because I was frustrated by how many people were spending hours sitting around doing nothing but thinking about the things they wished they had, and partly due to an ongoing annoyance at the self-help industry’s misuse of words like “quantum” and “vibration” to make their pseudoscience seem legitimate. What’s even more frustrating is how many people buy those claims without ever questioning them.
We have so many children growing up in single-parent families, which, must be said, is of course very tough on the parent and worse on the child, and this does not tend to help create a well-adjusted person. On the other hand, you can also grow up in a family with two, married parents, who parent in a way that is too strict, or with lots of verbal abuse (or worse) and this also causes deep traumas. It’s all about the quality of parenting, and the effort and knowledge that has been put into it.
I am with you on the “Law” term and its validity, but also agree that the end result is what it is. Harkening back to days of Jesus and far before great sages have pointed out that which we can sort of innately feel to be true, that what we think about expands. I think few people would argue with that. Now, the explanation of “why” this is true, I agree is still an open debate with elements of both spiritual and neurological discussion. But for me, it doesn’t matter. Its almost like common sense that I what I think about expands, and so, I spend effort conditioning myself to think about what I want, what I’m grateful for, and changing my thoughts when I catch them harboring on something I don’t want. And that really works for me, for whatever reason…
The strongest and most powerful way to apply all of the previous steps is in this one: Act as if it is already true. Act like the person you want to be. Act as if you already have everything you want. Act as if everything you need has already been provided. This is how you finally accept your manifestation and allow yourself to receive it from the universe.
