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.
Like all of you, I was skeptical about the idea of The Secret. All I can share is my own experience, I started visualising and practicing positive thinking as soon as I read the book, I also watched the movie. The first week, I was feeling great and felt good about life itself and is more aware about my surroundings. During this time I was also looking for a job. I put a lot of time in being positive everytime I go for interviews, the moment a bad thought pops up I try and brush it away and start focusing on happy thoughts. In the second week, nothin is happening, I was still jobless and havent had much opportunities presented to me. My faith was starting to shake thinking I was doing something wrong.
However, LoA as an idea that needs to be explored and refined through scientific inquiry — I am more in favor of than the dogma of materialism. Because I’ve had enough exposure to academia to know that there are big questions many brain scientists just simply avoid — it’s much easier to uphold a scientific theory of materialism than try to answer the hard questions about consciousness and causality, and the quantum level.
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.

The results of using the Law of Attraction techniques are only limited by your imagination (and by the laws of physics, you’re not going to manifest bird-like flying anytime soon). There are endless things you can attract in your life. From practical things — like “good parking karma” to always guarantee you a great parking spot, to “calls to adventure” that open you up to random invitations to explore the world — you can use the principles behind the Law of Attraction in any way you please.

9) Mindless: To invoke a LOA, you need to live continuously in an unreal future as you anticipate that it will be once you’ve achieved your goal and only visualize a successful outcome. This shows faith in the universe. Thinking about plans, actions, and challenges are discordant and negative so skip the process and focus on the result; live without regard to the present. This is the definition of mindlessness. Being fully aware of and attentive to the here and now is mindfulness and has been shown to produce powerful health and wellness benefits such as greater life satisfaction and happiness.
So think back to the dream relationship you wrote down in the first exercise. Why not start talking to that person like they’re actually here? You totally can. What would you be saying to them right now? First thing in the morning? Last thing before bed? Have a conversation out loud with them in your car or in the shower. Or if you can’t bring yourself to actually do it out loud, write a letter, email or even a nice long text.

I would stay up all night anxiously thinking in the dull light of the Hello Kitty Café game on my Kindle. Some nights I would read tarot cards instead, refreshing the pages of my iPhone until they told me what I wanted to hear. Hello Kitty and electronic tarot did little to calm my nerves and they certainly failed at taking my mind to a more hopeful place, so I thought that maybe going back to my Catholic roots and focusing on prayer might help. It was truly a last resort since I rarely pray in a traditional sense.
You can be happy now, and by doing this work, you are re-creating your world and embracing your capacity to Love. You are growing yourself into a new you. You are becoming the kind of person you’ll eventually attract into your life.  You’re becoming more and more your True Self! Once you align with your True Self and take inspired action from that place, the possibilities are infinite!
2.     Create a Manifesting Mind.   Your mind must be working for you, not against your intentions.  You can help your brain develop a manifesting mindset by establishing affirmations that begin with the word, “ I AM.”  This puts your mind in present tense and your mind will tend to match the reality that you live with the reality that you affirm.  BTW, do your affirmations often throughout the day.
When a week went by without a callback, my husband suggested I phone her, and that I also explore other alternatives just in case. Normally I tend toward the anxiously obsessive, and I would have already been doing that. Instead I told him it wasn't necessary because we already had a perfect kitchen floor. Secret-speak requires this odd future-present construction, which my husband came to call, "sounding like a moron."
This is not to say that there is no need to take an action or this is a replacement of the action or the physical efforts required. On the contrary, this is a great supplement to your action on the physical level. You will get the desired motivation or there shall be marked increase in the level of motivation and with this strategy your physical activity will get improved or facilitated.
Secondly, it’s critical to realize that your beliefs literally create the world you live in. So do you want to live in a world where no one can commit or great partners are scarce? If not, then it’s time to stop thinking and saying those very things! Remember that a handful of lacklustre dating experiences are not a good barometer for the entire population. Take a deep breath and try to have a little perspective about yourself and the dating experience as a whole.

4) Making Room for Love. I want you to be honest and answer this question:  As your life is today, do you have the time and energy for a deep, loving, healthy relationship?  Do you have room in your life for your Soulmate? Perhaps, since you’ve been single you’ve been working late hours, and have very little free time to go out on dates.  Or perhaps you’ve been accumulating a few “friends with benefits” who are keeping you sexually satisfied.  Or perhaps you’re so focused on helping others that you leave no room for yourself.
This was the most powerful and loving piece of advice that my mother gave me when I was on the brink of going bankrupt in 2009. She told me to just be gentle on myself and take one day at a time. This helped tremendously to keep me focussed on my power in the present moment and not sabotage my vibration with overwhelm by thinking about the uncertainty of my financial future. This is an imperative factor to energy management throughout the manifesting process.
You can be happy now, and by doing this work, you are re-creating your world and embracing your capacity to Love. You are growing yourself into a new you. You are becoming the kind of person you’ll eventually attract into your life.  You’re becoming more and more your True Self! Once you align with your True Self and take inspired action from that place, the possibilities are infinite!

Your second point is an interesting discussion. You are correct that in its infancy, psychology was criticized for claiming to be a scientific field and not living up to that assertion by performing quality research. I believe that this question has been put to rest as the rigors of publishing in psychology require randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trials.
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.

The original creators of the law of attraction going back to the 1880s including Prentice Mulford,James Allen, Thomas Troward, William Walker Atkinson, Bruce MacLelland, Wallace Wattles, Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, and W. Clement Stone promoted the belief that this is a universal law in which you attract only what you are thinking about. Modern LOA proponents such as Rhonda Byrne, Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Joe Vitale, The Hicks family, and many others have stated similar beliefs.
When you attempt to manifest from a place of selfishness or potential harm to anyone else, you invoke the ego. The ego is always about winning, overpowering, being better than others, accumulating for the sake of feeling superior, achieving adulation or recognition, improving your status, and so on. So the secret is to feel yourself as already being and having what your desire, and to keep the entirety of it all wrapped up in a spirit of love. Always weigh your choices on the scales of love.
Well i believe that the law of attraction does not state that you will just get what you want from just thinking about it. I believe that it is to strive for what you really want it life and to pull yourself to it instead of just saying i cannot do that or i am not worthy. Therefore i do believe that just thinking of something will not get you something but telling yourself to work for it instead of just sitting around saying i cant do that. I believe that that is the deeper meaning of the law of attraction

The Law of Attraction is a deep subject and you seem to only have a very superficial understanding of it paired with a closed mind. The reason most people aren't excellent at it is that most people have very deep seated beliefs about limits and have a lot of fearful thoughts that they pick up from society. Even babies pick up and mimic the negative moods of those around them.


I got a distressed call from a client some days back. Her friend had had a session with a kinesiologist, and the kinesiologist had removed an “entity” from her energy field. “My friend’s a mess,” my client told me. “The session was five days ago, but she’s still sick, shaky, and out of it. The experience was really scary. My friend felt like she was being pushed out of her body, and the kinesiologist was thrown across the room.”


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.
When you attempt to manifest from a place of selfishness or potential harm to anyone else, you invoke the ego. The ego is always about winning, overpowering, being better than others, accumulating for the sake of feeling superior, achieving adulation or recognition, improving your status, and so on. So the secret is to feel yourself as already being and having what your desire, and to keep the entirety of it all wrapped up in a spirit of love. Always weigh your choices on the scales of love.
Focus as often as you can on what you do want rather than on what you don't want. For example, if you are angry or upset about a war/conflict that has been going on, do your best to be 'pro-peace' rather than 'anti-war' - focus on the peace, and the kinds of solutions that you would like to see, instead of whatever it is that you do not like about the situation.
There was an inherent truth on this knowledge, unfortunately not everyone who claims to know or understand this truth really does. An based on your original post you investigated in the wrong places. These sources you mentioned were just means to get this current going but they are not definitely the absolute source of truth. Investigate a bit further and try to understand when you find it with an open mind.

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.


Scorpio season began the day before this Full Moon, yet we’ve already been getting a taste of it prior with other planets being located there. Scorpio is about power, transformation, intensity, sexuality, passion, regeneration, fears, and depth. It can be complex, mysterious, vengeful, manipulative, calculated, compulsive, and obsessive. As a water sign, it is emotional and intuitive.
Within the first week of not really trying “to hard” I received a check in the mail for over $270.00 dollars for a “loan refund” from a loan company that had since left my city. I was shocked because after I had paid the loan off, I didn’t believe I was entitled to any refund. I had closed the loan years ago. That was an eye opener!! However, I still had my doubts that it was related to my “movie” as instructed in the book.
Waking up in the mornings and doing this is the best way to start. Write down things that you love about yourself and start to journal about them every morning. Read it every morning and add to it as your days go on. This will help you own it and in the morning this energy helps you become more in tune with who you are. It will help you to enjoy who you are in the moment right now. Start to have that inner self-talk dialogue about the things you love about yourself. If you have a tendency to look at yourself in the mirror and say things like, “My thighs are too big” then pay attention to your words and switch them to a more loving aspect about you. This is the first step to becoming aware. Observe your thoughts and challenge yourself to create new ones.
We are having a Full Moon in Taurus on October 24th/25th depending on where you are located in the world. This marks the peak of the Lunar Cycle that began on October 8th/9th with a New Moon in Libra. The energies of a Full Moon gradually build up earlier in the Moon cycle and become more noticeable on the day of and days surrounding it. It is also a part of the backdrop of the other astrological energies over the following 2 weeks.

I’m not plugged into mainstream media and music. I don’t know about pop stars, pop music, and all of that. Occasionally I’II hear something, because I have a nine-year-old daughter, but mostly I’m uninterested. Also because I don’t care for hyper-sexualised music videos of young, half-naked women writhing about with pink lipgloss giving me deer eyes.
I have often felt that the derisive dismissal of the “placebo effect” was surreal; good grief, if you can get people to improve their health, even heal cancer, with a placebo effect, then rather than dismissing that (why? because it doesn’t make anybody money??), why aren’t we studying how to deliberately “bring about more of the placebo effect”? That effect proves that the mind has stunning potentials we haven’t got even a small handle on yet.

Well i believe that the law of attraction does not state that you will just get what you want from just thinking about it. I believe that it is to strive for what you really want it life and to pull yourself to it instead of just saying i cannot do that or i am not worthy. Therefore i do believe that just thinking of something will not get you something but telling yourself to work for it instead of just sitting around saying i cant do that.

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.
Lorna Sophia Levy is a Minister in the Centers for Spiritual Living, a worldwide New Thought organization. She teaches metaphysics and spirituality online. Although she’s been a minister for just 5 years, she has studied the law of attraction for over 30 years. She also has an MBA from Wharton and has worked professionally with Fortune 100 organizations as a Management Consultant in the area of technology development.
Every thought, we learned, creates a measurable electromagnetic wave that is “perceivable” on a subtle level, by others. At least the first part of this is verifiably true, by modern methodology. And, the latter claim, that others perceive and have the ability to respond to these vibrations, I cannot prove…but, for the sake of optimism, I am open to.
If you are constantly worried about bad things happening, or negative outcomes, then you are using the law of attraction against yourself. To worry is really to apply most of the above steps, towards a negative outcome. You are visualizing the negative outcome and asking the universe for it with pictures of the negative outcome; you are feeling the feelings of the negative outcome. Stop worrying and follow step seven above.
Approaching money from a point of neediness or scarcity will prevent you from manifesting money. You're much better off approaching it from a point of curiosity and excitement. Think of how a child views the world – everything is new and fun. The world is filled with possibilities. Embrace that state of childlike wonder. The results are pretty spectacular!
Suppose for some reason you cannot bring your level of faith to a high level, you need to re-write your goal. If you were to answer the question that what is your belief that you can make 90,000 dollars (instead of 120,000 dollars), your answer comes 6 or may be 7. Now the next question could be what about 80,000 dollars and you jump out saying “Yes, my belief is 9 on 10 that within 45 days from now I can start an activity which will take me to that level”. Well then that’s it! Please re-adjust your goal to make 90,000 dollars in a year, starting 45 days from now. Also see How to become a Millionaire – Core Principles.

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.
Holy Smokes! I freaking love this article you’ve shared Gabriel (and everything else on your site might I add!). That last sentence you shared about blessing my beloved and I and knowing that we are already deeply connected on a soul level… Feel it. I believe that stumbling onto this blog of yours is an indication of my commitment to grow and call my beloved man in. Something inside me felt called to have a google around tonight and I got you. Amongst other books and resources I have been working through to grow in the last year and a half, I am deeply resonating with everything I’ve seen on your site and I’ve had a good little look around! I would love to connect. Possibly for some one-on-one coaching and would even love to potentially have you on my podcast and interview you there so you can share all of your wisdom on matters of the heart.
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.

I found it fascinating that a being of such power would have to concede that the Cabal’s “desire” was so strong that he was forced to honor it. But this may be a clue for us about how things play out in our density of existence based on ‘free will,’ and beings of great power cannot simply come onto our planet and exert their own will over that of the inhabitants. True, most people on Earth might ultimately want what the “Black Jesus” was offering, but it would be necessary for more people to rise to a higher level of awareness for humanity to be able to say that it was “at choice” in this savior’s role on the planet.

I chose this rating because the information is presented in a direct manner. This book is concise and well presented. I chuckled when I read one star ratings for this book that I just loved. One declared it a pamphlet. Another called it the cliff notes version. Ironically this brevity was one of the reasons I called it a 5 star book. This is not a book that takes 220 pages to say what could be said in 45. The author doesn't put in filler and eventually get to the point. I very much appreciated the direct approach to the substance of this book. I have read many books on this subject. He also adds a few new aspects, including exercises for emotional healing, that I have not seen elsewhere. In keeping with his direct style they are brief. Yes there are a few editorial errors. Not many. But overall this book is a gem. I recommend that you choose this book if you're more interested in the application of manifesting than just reading about it.


A favorite Abraham-Hicks’ quote of mine is “a belief is just a thought you keep thinking.” What does that tell us? That beliefs can and do change. But knowledge, understood as an evidence-based understanding of something, is unwavering. Well, maybe there’s more of an 80/20 rule about it. I mean, once upon a time we just knew the Earth was flat. Now, we know it’s not.
