The Secret by Rhonda Byrne played an integral role in my early stages of waking up and was the first time that I was introduced to the Law of Attraction. Today I would like to share with you my review of this information and just how it can be a benefit for you in your life.
How The Secret Came into My Life
Just over a decade ago I started working on a book about how to change the world and make it a better place. This was the first real step in my journey of awakening, but a close second was when I was introduced to The Secret and that would have a profound effect on me for the rest of my life.
I had recently lost my long term job in the wireless industry and had taken a sales job for a health insurance company. I didn’t think I would stay there long and continued my search for a better opportunity in the job market. However, in my brief time there is when the boss’s son gave me his copy of The Secret to watch.
As I watched the movie that night it was like my eyes were being opened for the very first time. Here was exactly what I needed to see at this point in my life as it helped me to begin on my journey of enlightenment. I was super excited with all of the things that I learned from watching this, but when I look back now I realize that I was not excited enough!
The Early Days of Using the Law of Attraction
I was so excited about learning the Law of Attraction that I thought I could turn my whole life around in an instant. What happened though was that my own self-doubts and thoughts betrayed me into really using and benefitting from it. You see I held onto the doubts too strongly and ended up only attracting more of that into my life.
This was also a time for me when my family was struggling financially and I am sad to say, but at the time I hated money and what it stood for. It would take many years for me to learn that I was stunting my own progress towards financial freedom because of this view. I was attracting the wrong kind of vibes when it came to money.
Basically I loved the principals that were taught to me through watching the movie, but I failed to apply them properly in life. Matter of fact I actually probably hurt myself more than I helped myself for quite a few years. It wasn’t I learned more through other research that I started to piece things together in a more beneficial way.
Getting Things Turned Around in a Positive Way
As the years went by I would continue my journey of research and for a little bit the things that I learned from this movie faded into the background. Deep down I wanted to believe in it but was having trouble doing so because of my self-sabotage.
The one movie that helped me to start the turnaround process was What the Bleep Do We Know. Here I learned about how we really are in control of the world ahead of us and I began to tie it back to the things that I learned from The Secret. It would still take me a few more years to really start to bring it all together, but the seeds were planted and I was taking good care of them with lots more knowledge and research.
When I started this site is when things really started to click for me in the most optimum way. I realized not only how I had been sabotaging myself, but also how to better practice the concepts in a way that were more beneficial to me.
When I wrote the post, “How to be Appreciative by Being Open Minded” is when I had my aha moment with the Law of Attraction and how to benefit from it in a positive way. I stopped holding onto my doubts and other negative thoughts and began to appreciate more things about my life.
As I worked on my appreciations it was like the proverbial snowball rolling down the hill on a Saturday morning cartoon. With each passing day I had more and more things to be appreciative about and the snowball would continue to grow for me. I was finally learning how to really use the Law of Attraction.
I continued to write articles for my site here I began to tie things together more and more, changing my life in a tremendously positive way. I took on a new mantra of aiming to be productive every day and to appreciate even the smallest of things that life was giving me.
Today, I am totally grateful for everything going on in my life and have even learned how to appreciate the negative aspects of it without letting them drag me down. I realized that when I would hold onto the negative I would only attract more of it into my life. When I appreciated it for what it was and let it go, I was able to move on in a positive way.
Pros & Cons
The biggest pro about The Secret and the Law of Attraction is that it really does work. The biggest con is also that it really does work and you need to be mindful of how you are using it, as you saw above I sabotaged myself with it!
The other Con that I had with the video is that is seemed to come off as a bit “flashy.” What I mean by that is that the process seemed to be glamourized to the extent that it was so easy and all of your dreams were right around the corner for you to go grab.
Using The Secret, just like any other new skill, takes time and effort to practice it. Not only do you have to work at it and practice it, but at the same time you need to be mindful that you are helping yourself and not holding yourself back.
I would highly recommend getting The Secret and adding it your collection of books or DVDs. The concept of the Law of Attraction is one that we can all benefit from learning how to use, as regardless of our knowledge it is a daily part of all of our lives. All the more reason to learn how to use it appropriately.
Another added benefit is that you can purchase the content in book or DVD Format. If you would like to get either one for your collection and at the same time help support this site you can click on either Link here to begin the process: Book Format: The Secret or DVD Format: The Secret. Your support can help make the world a better place for us all, one person at a time!
Lastly, I would also like to remind you that you really need to pay attention to how the Law of Attraction works and be careful not to sabotage yourself like I was. In light of that I have looked around for some good material that can help you to better understand the principals behind it. Manifestation Miracle provides a good assortment of information to help you to cope with and understand how to apply The Secret in your life. Another program at 4lifeforkids.com offers a program that is catered to helping your kids learn about the Law of Attraction.
