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 felt this book used some valuable psychological principles that have been around for many years, as the core of its text. What i found surprising is for a text that classes itself as spiritual there was a total absence in essence in themes such as compassion, wisdom, service, humility, integrity, community, selflessness. I understand the basic premise of “divine art of selfishness” – one needs to have their own house in order before they can fully contribute to and receive from life. But beyond this it seems to tap into inflated narcissism. I have not read or seen any of The Secret. I saw a bit on an Oprah show and the drooling from their self indulgent egoes was enough to turn me off. The USA has such an enormous population (300 million), it only needs someone to tap into 1% of the population that is fragmented, disempowered, alienated, fractured, hurting (and god knows the USA has created a culture of extremes between the inter generational disempowered and entrenched fundamentalism), and it has a 3 million best seller on its hands. What I have also found surprising is that the method of “spiritual wisdom” has not seemed to be openly challenged. I am open to chanelling being an option than can work. But I watched some of the Hick – Abraham on their websites. It reeks of insincerity and commercialism. And the shallow questions that are asked of these supposedly infinite all knowing spritual beings? They seem to be questions and answers that funnell into the Hicks’ narrow and already publicised philosophy of “Think and Grow Rich”. And as I stated earlier these ideas have been around for a very long time – one does not require the mystique of “chanelling” to make them appear from the ethers. That these “beings” didn’t challenge the direction of modernity amazed me. They infact endorsed it as if there is no concern that we have been creating immense and possibly irreversible environmental and cultural destruction to our planet. I imagine fundamentalist fanatics the world over would love the book’s endorsement of violence and war as being the “victim’s” fault. HayHouse Production and Oprah obviously endorse these writers. I thought both may have had some credability. I am open to the good that can come through any form of alternative thought. But either I am getting too skeptical in my maturity or these people really do know how to think and grow rich, at the expense of everything that really matters in life. Thankyou for your website. It’s very real!

At this level, your wishes — all of them — can indeed be fulfilled. By using your imagination and practicing the art of assuming the feeling of your wishes being fulfilled, and steadfastly refusing to allow any evidence of the outer world to distract you from your intentions, you will discover that you, by virtue of your spiritual awareness, possess the ability to become the person you were destined to be.
5) No Date: When you live as if you have already accomplished your goals, there is no reason to establish deadlines or timelines. As Secret author Rhonda Byrne stated, “It takes no time for the Universe to manifest what you want.” While goal setting research supports the importance of establishing timelines to achieve success, LOA experts assert that it would be inappropriate to set a deadline for the universe to achieve your goal.

The Traditionally Scientific Explanation: If you’re one who needs things to be a little more easy to prove, there is also a different explanation for how the law of attraction works. By focusing on attaining a new reality, and by believing it is possible, we tend to take more risks, notice more opportunities, and open ourselves up to new possibilities. Conversely, when we don’t believe that something is in the realm of possibilities for us, we tend to let opportunities pass by unnoticed. When we believe we don’t deserve good things, we behave in ways that sabotage our chances at happiness. By changing our self-talk and feelings about life, we reverse the negative patterns in our lives and create more positive, productive and healthy ones. One good thing leads to another, and the direction of a life can shift from a downward spiral to an upward ascent.

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…


We all make a conscious choice to have what we want.  If you are not sure what it is that you really want, take a moment to imagine yourself having or achieving it already.  How does it make you feel?  If you can’t picture or feel what its’ like, then maybe you are not ready for it, or don’t really want it that much after all.  Perhaps you may even think that you can’t have it or don’t deserve it for some reason.
When science tried to control the nature or everything..we screwed up...science is something based on theories..and these theories are exposed to changes..so how and why should we relate our lifes to something that was a part of world destruction..science is the best example of the " cause effect" you re most trying to talk about...he is the effect and he is the cause..imagine!!.science found cures because scientists tried to control everything...a refreshing thought dear..science created weapon .."tools of terrorist you re talkin about"

I enjoyed reading this, Jonathan. I basically agree with what you’ve said here, that it is a change of mindset which leads to a change in beahviour that leads to results. However, I don’t think your “like repels like” is any more true than “like attracts like”. Both exist in nature. Also – if two tuning forks are struck simultaneously they will each affect the vibration of the other – so that refutation isn’t very strong either.


4) Hmm... weird again. Dunno what books you've read, but that is totally false. Nothing is perfect and the "LoA" I subscribe to doesn't say what you've described. Visualizing is only one tool of LoA... one which I don't really use. The perfect relationship and perfect diet are total BS. you don't visualize those things, you either build them (a good healthy relationship, not a perfect one) or follow them (a good diet).
Another way that you can manifest money into your life by using the Law of Attraction is by actually envisioning it coming to pass. The deeper you’re able to envision it, the more likely you’ll be to see things through. Oftentimes, we can’t envision something incredible happening in our lives because we try not to set ourselves up for disappointment, thus we impose self-limitations that stifle us from achieving our dreams.
Let’s start your manifesting adventure by getting detailed about what you really want. What does being in love really look like for you? There’s no such thing as a perfect one-size-fits-all relationship. What lights you up might drive your BFF totally crazy! We all have different needs: someone to play video games with, someone to travel with, maybe even someone to build a company with.

If you’re going to manifest your soulmate, it’s vital to first understand why it is that your attempts to find love so often go awry. Everyone’s story of looking for love is slightly different. However, there are often common factors in play that can block you from creating the romance you deserve to have. For example, you may find the following are true of you:


The more you surrender, the higher you rise. When you trust that the Universe is always acting in your best interests for the greatest good of your soul then you feel protected, loved and supported. God/The Universe is everywhere and is always your safety net in times of need. Your role in the process? Go with the flow. When you do this you literally get out of your own way and allow your intentions to manifest.

The Lunar nodes will be changing signs on November 6th/7th just before the next New Moon. They have been in the Leo-Aquarius axis since May 2017 and will be going into the Cancer-Capricorn axis for the following 18 months. I will cover this more in my next article, however, this factor also signifies a shifting of energies along with Jupiter changing signs shortly after this, and Uranus also retrograding back into Aries soon.

So, I will acknowledge that I came to The Secret with a negative attitude. When I bought it, I quickly stuffed it into a plastic bag, glancing around Barnes & Noble to make sure I saw no one I knew. The last time I was this embarrassed at a bookstore was when I bought The G Spot, another best-seller that provided instructions for achieving bliss. For the Human Guinea Pig column, I usually do things that readers are too embarrassed or too intelligent to do themselves—like entering a beauty pageant or entertaining at a kid's birthday party. I wanted to see if applying the rules of The Secret to my life would bring me the perfect happiness that it promises. But millions of you have already beaten me to this one. There are now 5.3 million copies of the book in print in the United States, and publisher Simon & Schuster says it is selling about 150,000 a week. A separate DVD version has sold at least 1.5 million copies. Groups have formed to discuss how to best live by The Secret's rules. It is a No. 1 best-seller in Australia, England, and Ireland, and it is scheduled to be translated into 30 languages.
Second I also joined some secret forums and one of them is The Power of the law of attraction website and when i started a topic about that the secret isn’t working the way they tell you too, I ve got really huge fights with all the people there, they fell over me, like flies on cows, I got banned there because I was the first who talked against them all.

The Law of Attraction will attract anything that you pay attention to. Stick to the positive and you will attract the positive. Keep thinking about the negative and that is all you will attract. The Law of Attraction does not care whether you want something or not or whether it will be good for you or not. It simple takes your current mood or feeling and goes ahead with it.
Remember that there is a difference between sending out a hope that something you'd like to happen will happen and putting in the appropriate effort or planning to ensure that something actually will happen. If you don't believe that something will happen, perhaps you're not willing to plan and work for it. You need a balance of both hope (to inspire) and effort (to achieve) for an outcome to be realized.
This Venus retrograde energy is strongly highlighted at this Full Moon because Venus rules Taurus and it will be joining the Sun exactly a few days following which is always a significant part of a retrograde as it is a ‘seeding’ period. Things that occur or thoughts that we have during the last 10 days of October (especially 25th – 27th) can somehow contribute to how things play out over the following 10 months when it comes to some Venus-ruled areas mentioned above.
The most essential secret that have learnt from you,is that one should not place limitations on the capacity of the universe.Let the universe avail to you all your desires in its own timing.Your work is just to feel good,because when you feel good you are always in the process of attracting something you want.Whatever you want is a frequency so you just have to tune in and match to the frequency you want,if its a mansion, a car,your dream job, a beautiful wife it will all manifest according to the size of your imagination and your level of your commitment towards achieving your dreams.Have a marvelous and a joyous life everyone.
Thank you for the article, it has helped a lot. I had a question about the list making process – I’ve been told that the more specific, the stronger this manifestation process works. However, I don’t really care about the physical features, is it okay to only have about 4-5 things and leave the rest up to the universe? Is it also conflicting/interfering with the process to have different looking people on my vision board? e.g. one person with dark/short hair, another with the opposite etc.

What do I mean by timelines? You have to stop saying you want something right now and putting a concrete reason behind it. For example, “I am 40 years old, and I need to find someone fast if I want kids” or “I am a single mom with two kids, and no man is going to want me.” The truth about manifestation is that you have to be able to get honest with yourself, be open to change, and remain open to seeing how you can heal any old wounds from your subconscious and conscious mind. You have to be open to clearing out old habits, beliefs, patterns from past love experiences, childhood traumas, and memories. Once you are open to this, you begin taking your first step. Your next step is allowing yourself to give up complete control and putting yourself first!

Emily has a competitive side, so I played to that by challenging her to find more coins than me, which boosted her motivation and desire to get good at it. She knows that technically it’s a fair game, and she even gave herself an advantage by walking in front of me, so she could be the first to spot new coins. And since she’s only 4’9″ inches tall, she’s a lot closer to the ground than I am.


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.
Step 4: As you work to manifest your soulmate, the final stage of your journey to attract love involves cultivating patience. Embrace this sense of peace as you accept that the Universe can – and will – give you what you need. Although you’ve been focusing on how to manifest love with a specific person, looking for love through Law of Attraction techniques rests on your ability to trust that the Universe knows exactly what kind of partner can help you manifest love that lasts. Don’t fret about when you’re going to find your soulmate. But rather, rest easy in the knowledge that you will find them at the perfect time.
For example, if you’re looking to create more income or manifest a big payday, you need to plan around that expectation. Imagine when someone tells you that they’re coming to visit and they’ll be staying at your house in the guest bedroom. You plan your life in accordance with that expected outcome. You prepare the bedroom, clean the house, wash the sheets, and so on.
I was thinking the same. I've never heard a "professional" man of his age, speaking like such a catty little 15 year old girl. If you read all the comments you can see how he speaks down to/mocks every person who disagrees with him, while sarcastically throwing little digs in wherever he can. I came to this article looking for evidence to discredit the LOA. I just can't seem to take anything he wrote seriously because of his unprofessionalism. Very narrsassitic.
At this point I should add that The Secret is not only drivel—it's pernicious drivel. The obvious question that arises from its claim that it's easy to get what you want, is: Why do so many people get what they don't want? As Byrne writes, "Imperfect thoughts are the cause of all humanity's ills, including disease, poverty, and unhappiness." Yes, according to The Secret, people don't just randomly end up being massacred, for example. They are in the wrong place because of their own lousy thinking. Cancer patients have long been victims of this school of belief. But The Secret takes it to a new and more repulsive level with its advice not just to blame people for their illness, but to shun them, lest you start being infected by their bummer thoughts, too.
A lot of people get this wrong. You don’t want to attach yourself to the idea of the desired person. You have to trust that the universe is going to give you exactly what you want. So if you have a crush on or are in love with Adam, you cannot put Adam on this list. You have to go with the feeling. Think, “I want to feel secure, trusted, loved, etc.” What do you want in a relationship? Yes, you can put handsome, but try and stay away from the superficial things and trust everything will fall into place.
When you put aside your doubts, you can begin to imagine in both mind and body what it will feel like to have your Wishes Fulfilled. Think about what you plan to manifest — then use your imagination to feel what that feels like in your body. Does it feel natural to you? Does it really feel like this is the “you” that you are deciding to be? By staying only with what your senses tell you is your reality, you place a barrier to letting your imagination create all that you wish for. Your imagination is unlimited.

I would also like to thank you. I always feel angles are hear for me I just don’t know how to talk to them. I was looking up what my birth date ment and I found your wonderful site. My son is leaving for Afghanistan today and I was looking for protection. Your information is helpful and I feel great connection to this site. I think it would be great and well worth it if you add a link where all of your grateful followers can donate what they wish to help with the publication of your book. I would be the first if you are interested . Thank you for your guidance.


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.

Given my skepticism, how could I make myself believe in The Secret enough to give it a fair test? To quote one of The Secret's avatars, Ralph Waldo Emerson, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds." Clearly, The Secret is drivel, but why should that stop me from sincerely throwing myself into seeing if it worked? I am already deeply susceptible to superstition and seeing signs—if I find a penny (faceup only), I pick it up knowing something good will happen to me. As self-absorbed as I already am, I loved the permission the book gave to sink deeper into a Jacuzzi of megalomania. As The Secret points out: "You are the master of the Universe. You are the heir to the kingdom. You are the perfection of Life." Just as I'd always suspected!


2) De-Cluttering your Mind. De-Cluttering your Mind means exactly that.  It means letting go or releasing any fears or beliefs you have about love that are keeping love away from you.  For example, many people believe they have some kind of fatal flaw or secret that may repulse others.  For women, it normally is something physical, and for men, it is normally something in their financial situation or career. These insecurities will lead you to have thoughts such as:
I’ve personally seen some interesting results when I have practiced the LOA.   Some of my friends would say that the LOA failed at times for me and other times it succeeded, but the way I see it is, it was successful every time. Why do I see it this way? Because I believe there are other factors involved in the LOA that we often don’t realize because we get too caught up in creating from our minds and ego desires. Simply put, we are missing the bigger picture.
It’s really that simple when a person has true faith in something! Consider what faith has done for some great visionaries throughout the history. Let’s start with Jesus. The most fundamental characteristic of the Christianity and almost every other religion is having “Faith”. All the miracles of Jesus were nothing else but the power of “Super-strong and Unwavering Faith”!
If you want something to happen, such as you want a bike, don't just say I want that bike, believe you are going to get that bike. Instead of telling yourself you want the bike, envision yourself riding that bike. It doesn't matter whether or not you know when you're going to receive it, just believe you're going to get it and have no doubts about it. If you have any doubts, quickly change your thought pattern to the positive and focus on receiving or having what you want.
When you put aside your doubts, you can begin to imagine in both mind and body what it will feel like to have your Wishes Fulfilled. Think about what you plan to manifest — then use your imagination to feel what that feels like in your body. Does it feel natural to you? Does it really feel like this is the “you” that you are deciding to be? By staying only with what your senses tell you is your reality, you place a barrier to letting your imagination create all that you wish for. Your imagination is unlimited.
After this was done, the man materialized directly into the offices of the people who had ordered his murder. There were no visible signs of damage to his body. He said, “Your desire to prevent me from living on Earth is so strong that I am forced to honor it, for now. I will be leaving you shortly. However, in the future many more people will develop abilities just like me. Once that happens, you will no longer be able to stop us from making this world a peaceful place for everyone.”
By the way, you can apply this magic formula to anything: Health, relationships, financial abundance, your business, your career. Even if you bounce from one to the other it’s fine. The universe doesn’t care. So long as you invest in yourself. So long as you’re improving SOME aspect of your inner or outer life every day by 1%, you’ll experience the magic results faster than you’d imagine possible.
According to the Law of Attraction, you can attract whatever you consistently and coherently try to manifest. So, in a certain sense, trying to manifest money isn’t any different from trying to use the Law of Attraction in any other way. However, there are plenty of things that might hold you back from successfully manifesting more money into your life. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why it can be difficult for some people to manifest money, and explore some of the most effective techniques.
Your thoughts are electromagnetic waves of energy that penetrate time and space. Whatever is going on in your mind and heart is a reflection of what is going on physically and externally, so you have to work very hard to attract the things you want rather than the things that you may usually think about: struggles, lack, hardship, dissatisfaction, disease, etc.
Have a strong desire. Now we know where we’re going and we need something that energizes the vision. If you’re flying to Hawaii, you know that plane needs fuel to get there. The same works for your vision, you need the right fuel so you can manifest it. Have a vision that moves you and each time you think about it, you feel lighter and joyful. These are the emotions that will get you where you want to go. Dare to dream and think big, it will help you to literally energize your vision.
