I recognize that many of you don’t want to hear about The Secret
The self help book written by Rhonda Byrne. I came across this book while I was in Paris, I overheard a friend of mine talking about it and how it had changed her life, this only inspired me to read it, and yes, it also changed my life. I know the theory has been mocked and has caused a lot of criticism, but the truth is, I understand why and it didn’t hurt to try.
For those of you unfamiliar with The Secret, The Secret is a book based on The Law of Attraction, which claims, positive thinking will lead to a positive life. –
The Law of Attraction – This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy” and the belief that like energy attracts like energy. Like attracts Like
so…… basically.. If you’re sad all the time, you will probably only attract more events and people that will bring you sadness…
Now, I know that sounds crazy, but I figured it was worth a try, while I understand that life happens and big problems can’t be fixed so easily.
but this practice was a lot harder than it sounds. It took me years of practice to start thinking positively more than negatively, and it’s still a challenge for me, but it’s something worth working on. It’s definitely a new lifestyle and it has changed my life in many positive ways. I’m more dedicated to taking care of my mind, body, and soul than before.
The power of thoughts is likened to the power in a transmission tower, which sends out a frequency to the universe and then returns the same frequency in a physical or elemental form.
The second key to this belief is Gratitude, the idea “ask and you shall receive” or “believe, ask, receive”
I like to call this Gratitude to the 3rd Power.
(3 is such a Powerful Number)
by three times; to three times the number or amount.
so, I took this into my own hands to practice and receive all the things I’ve wanted in life, so far, I’m not disappointed,
and again, I understand that sometimes.. life happens and no one asked for horrible situations… but It’s also how we deal with it mentally and spiritually that gets us through it.
I don’t know what you believe in or what you’ve heard, but if you ever feel like you need something new to try, to turn your life around and have a new beginning, it doesn’t hurt, to start changing your thoughts.
