The secret to life

Has anyone of you watched The Secret? It's a ninety minute movie about the Law of Attraction. Now, do you know the Law of Attraction? It simply states that whatever you think, good or bad, will come to your life. There are no exceptions on whether you like it or not. Just think it and it will come. I just watched the movie and i was astounded at the people who knew this. It goes way back to retro time and til now there are people who benefits from it. I just wanna know if there are people here who lives by this law and manifests from it. I for once have been a witness to this. I've been thinking negatively for quite a while now and i just realized that most the things that had been coming to my life are full of negativity cuz of my way of thinking. Do you believe in the Law of Attraction? Please explain your answer.

I really can't question those people who believes in this Law of Attraction. But, in my case, I don't think this is applicable in my own life. It is completely opposite with the Law of Attraction. Whatever I think, good or bad, sometimes happen but mostly doesn't happen, which really puts me in a state of depression. Whatever I expect, doesn't materialize. Maybe it's just a matter of coincidence. And the one that really knows what things will come to your life is God, the Almighty Father.

Well, that's right. Only He knows what's in store for us. But i can't really help but wonder what this law is really all about. It is a law after all, right? It has been happening to me and to others i know. I introduced them to it and they said they just realized that it's true. I wonder why yours are so different.

i do agree with charmeleon68.sometimes the result could be the opposite way.it just not like what we thought it would be.i think it is not about what we thought but more to what we have done to make it happen.

I'm gonna have to disagree with you on the 'opposite' part. It's just not what's happening to me right now. I just began to shift my thinking and it feels great. As for doing it yourself, it's included in the steps on how to manifest using the Law of Attraction so you're right about that part but you're wrong in your concept. Of course that's only my opinion. Read the book for you to be enlightened. :)

Hi Frontvision101!. I have not watch that movie, the only law of attraction thats I see is the one staring by Pierce Brosnan. Do you have the link of that movie in the internet?. you make me curious. I ever reads this line somewhere 'you are what you think about yourself' maybe if we judge our self negatively its will appear on our body gesture too. So others will react negatively to us too.

You're right. If we revert those thoughts to positivity though, others will react positively towards us. Not just people but events that's happening in our lives.

If you want to do something, your desire has to be very strong. What are your reasons? I have 613 reasons for living in Israel. So here I am. I have 50 reasons to eat healthily. So I do. If you have a goal then list the reasons that you have to reach your goal. I think that the Law of Attraction is good, but that now you have the desire, you have to take action. It also helps to pray to God to help you reach your goal.

I don't wanna attract desperation by feeling too much desire upon things. It's better if i just let it flow and allow things to happen naturally. :)

I did not see the movie but I did read most of the book. I think to a degree that it probably works as I believe negativity breeds negativity, and when you are positive things will be positive around you. I do not however believe that things will come ones way just because one thinks about them and wants them and is positive about it. I think if you are positive and go for things you are more likely to get them then if you sit around and pout and only put in minimal effort. So I believe it to an extent.

It's really important to stay positive about your life even if it's already on a train wreck. It's when you find your strength and courage. I was wrong at one point in my life thinking that anger summons strength. Now i understand how it really works. :)

Well I do believe that those who think positive do have positive things in life. And there is something else i believe which is if you really want something and if you think that you will have that thing that you want, you will have it. It can take a while but you will. The Law of Attraction is a theory and it could be possible. Its almost like when you believe that you can do something like learning to fly or drive or even getting the person you want, if you stick your mind to it then it can happen.

You may have missed one thing my friend. The law of attraction is a law, not a theory anymore. Laws come from theory and when it has been proven that the theory cannot be broken everytime, that's when the theory becomes a law. :) thanks for sharing. :)

I don't know if this law of attraction is true or not. I do know that our state of mind whether positive or negative does have an affect on the decisions we make and as a result these decisions become manifestations of our negativity or positiveness. Also our state of consiousness affects how we perceive things and can result in us viewing things either optimistically or pessimistically. When we are in a funk, everyting seems to appear funky to us. When we are feeling positive we see everything that comes our way positively.

You're right. That is a part of the law. But the law mainly states that what ever you think, you will attract. There's even a saying there: "Whether you think you can or you can't, either way you are right." That's a nice saying. I'm kinda clinging on it and see what'll change in my life. :)

I have not watched the movie yet, but really want to buy it. I have read the book several times, and I do feel that it is true, the only bad part is I still seem to be good at the negative images and then bring more negative into my life. I am trying very hard to change the way I think, but for instance with money problems, it is pretty had when you get so stressed out about it everyday. There is a new book coming out this month that is the follow up to the secret, called The Power, I have already ordered the book. I think it will be very powerful as well.

What happens to you in life is all about how you look at it. It's the glass half full, glass empty thing. For instance, I just found out I am going in the direction of diabetes. I am in the midst of learning all the things I need to know to regulate my blood sugar so I don't need insulin. Is this bad? If I were to start a blog I would probably entitle it, Diabetes - a celebration of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains! It was found because I took action on my health and can adjust my diet early, before it starts making feel ill. Which do I want? A life of "oh no another bad thing happened to me without my help getting it" or, "Take action, enjoy"? Hmm.

That's a nice view on this but i'm talking about materializing things that you want here. Of course you'd think 'that's impossible.' i know it's impossible and silly but i joined a law of attraction forum and i've read all they've been manifesting all this time. These people knew how to use it. They're even giving tips to manifest faster than what the movie have told me. I just thought i'd try it for experiment and see what happens. I'm giving myself a time span and see what the possibilities are. Well, they say in the movie that it's endless but i'm still having doubts. Lol.

Nice. Thanks for the recommendation. I'll check it out sometime. I've just grew fond of reading these kinds of stuff. Gives me wisdom and shows me how to live an optimistic life.

I've read the book, and I believe in the idea of Law of Attraction. I've tried it a number of times, and it pretty much worked. Have you ever heard of believing to make it true? Well, I suppose anything you don't believe in won't ever be true to you, will it? :)
• Philippines

Yes that's right. Anything that's not present in your mind will not manifest. Pretty cool book huh. :)

I know too little about the Law of Attaction or about The Secret to have a really good opinion about it, but it does sound like it can make a lot of sense. So I am going to do some research about it! Thanks for the tip!

I bet it will make sense to you. I think they have a twenty minute video posted on youtube. You can in watch it if you like. It could answer most of your questions.
