The "Secret" That I Didn't Know About

Updated on March 26, 2018


It all started when I was reading a very sad article on Facebook about a young girl who died from a heroin overdose. The article was very detailed and one of the things they mentioned about her was what she loved to read. There was just something about her picture, and especially her eyes, that caught my attention and I kept on going back to that post. One of the books she read was called “The Secret”. So I started to look into that book and it was about the Law of Attraction which I never even heard of. Where have I been? There was also a movie made about it. I haven’t gotten a chance to read the book or watch the movie but it’s on my list. I started to look on the internet and there was so much information on it that I didn’t even know where to start. I’ve been slowly watching video after video trying to learn more and more. I even came across Oprah talking about it. I just found it very fascinating and I wanted to learn more.


What is the Law of Attraction:

The Law of Attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, people can bring positive or negative experiences in their life. The belief is based on the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy” and that through the process of “like energy attracting energy” a person can improve their own health, wealth and personal relationships.

History of The Law of Attraction:

The Law of Attraction is not new. It dates back to the early 19th century. The New Thought Movement (Law of Attraction Origins) came from the teachings of Phineas Quimby. At a very young age, he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Medicinal treatment wasn't working so he began carriage riding through his hometown in Lebanon, New Hampshire. He regained his health and recovered prompting a study of "mind over body".

How it Works:

The Law of Attraction is always working even if you believe it or not. It is working as much as you are thinking. Thoughts of the past, present or the future, the Law of Attraction is working. It's an ongoing process. You don't press stop. Good or bad thoughts, you are creating it. The Law of Attraction is everywhere. Just open your eyes. What you feel now is what you're going to attract. Only your thoughts and actions can determine your life. You create everything that happens to you.

To Believe or not to Believe?

Just because you don't understand it you shouldn't reject it. There's a lot of things in life that we don't understand. When people do start to understand it, they become frightened of the negative thoughts that they may have. It has been proven scientifically that an affirmative thought is a hundred times more powerful than a negative thought . Also, if for some reason we are thinking negatively or even positively, there's a time delay that all of your thoughts don't come true right away which may come as a relief since it gives you time to reassess and if need be, make new choices.


Feeling good is the most important thing when it comes to using the Law of Attraction because how you feel about something is a sign of what you are creating. When you are feeling good, you are in vibrational alignment with the essence of who you really are and with what you want. The more you feel good, the more you attract the things that are good. When you feel down, find something to bring you up. Put some music on, think of something beautiful, go play with your pet or your baby and dwell on happy things. It will make you feel better.



I do believe there's something to this.Do you know people that seem to have a dark cloud over them and they live in constant chaos? Is it bad luck? Does it have to do with the Law of Attraction? Are they harboring bad and unhealthy thoughts? I've been in contact with negative people and it does impact my day and me. In the alternative, I've been with happy people and I do find myself happier.

I am generally a pretty happy person so I'm usually positive but I am going to give this a try. My one dream is to one day live on a beach so I am going to envision my beach house. What do I have to lose?

What do you think?
