Now Rhonda Byrne is getting some people to write propaganda puff-pieces for her, to try and deflect the harsh criticism she is getting, and the backlash against The Secret from religious groups, from people saying its a scam, and from those who are calling it a type of cultish belief system.
Notice how this bogus article says its not a "Feel Good brainwashing system", which is exactly what it is. She also glosses over how Abraham-Hicks was cut out of the movie...my guess is that Hicks wanted more royalties, so they told her to go F-herself.
She is also trying to deflect the severe religious criticism by saying its not religious, which is an outright lie. They teach the Christ Consciousness and about 50 other bastardized "religious" things constantly quoting Jesus from the bible...that's not religious?
Then what is it? Mathematics? Astronomy? Fiction? (ok, it is fiction).
These creeps are trying to say its "science" and Quantum Mechanics which is a blatant, bald-faced lie, and they know it.
Its just a straight up lie meant to fool people with no education in those areas.
Isn't it utterly amazing how you have these scammer type "Leader" people, trying to push themselves off as being "spiritual" and holier than Mother Theresa, when in reality they are just making money off people with sales trickery and mind games?
One new piece of info is she does admit that[b:9608e9bdaa] Jack Canfield is the one who put together the Gurus for the Secret movie from his "TLC" Transformational Leadership Council.[/b:9608e9bdaa]http://www.transformationalleadershipcouncil.com/
ok, I just checked the list of TLC, Rhonda Byrne is on it, and so are the Sedona people, and pretty much scammers from top to bottom...Raymond Aaron to Marshall Thurber.
So I was right about that...Jack Canfield slapped together some of his rent-a-gurus, so he could get some cross-promo for his Chicken Soup books with them. Its clear now that Jack Canfield is the one behind The Secret, as I suspected.
It was clearly his idea, and he put all the people together from his Transformational Leadership Council, including Rhonda Byrne, and set this entire thing up.
Its nothing less than a new Chicken Soul franchise.
In bookstores, there is an entire separate rack of Chicken Soup books.
Now Jack Canfield wants to add another series...
The Secret series.
Books from all the Gurus on The Secret. That's about 30 books to start.
Now I also believe that Oprah company Harpo probably also has a development deal with Jack Canfield and is taking a cut of the action. Its probable that Oprah and Jack have cut a deal for The Secret series, which they plan on being as big as Chicken Soup. Rhonda Byrne is just a PR flack, with movie skills.
So we'll see what happens, but its pretty clear now what is going on.
Just like Oprah launched Dr. Phil, and take a huge cut of the money from his show, and Rachel Ray, and others, its clear she has some type of interest/deal with Jack Canfield to turn The Secret into a billion dollar franchise.
The Secret, a new Chicken Soup franchise, co-produced and marketed by Oprah Winfrey, goal is probably a billion in global sales.
Will they pull it off?
Looks like they will.
Can anyone stop them? Basically the traditional Christian's are going to rip them all news ones, for trying to "Transform" Christianity with The Secret. The only ones who can hurt them are the US Christians...who generally despise The Secret and think its the work of the antichrist.
You can create wealth, harmonious relationships, strong health, and anything else your heart desires. But here's the tricky part. This is not some "get rich quick" scheme, or some type of cult that brainwashes people into "feeling good." The Secret is not an organization or a charity -- it's simply the vehicle Byrne uses to present the universal Law of Attraction to a larger audience.
When Rhonda Byrne discovered the Law of Attraction, she found the teachers she was seeking to present this ancient principle to the world in the members of the Transformational Leadership Council founded by "Chicken Soup for the Soul" author Jack Canfield.
While many of people featured on the movie The Secret have strong spiritual beliefs, the Law of Attraction is not religion-based. In simplest terms, it's about believing in yourself and aligning your thoughts and beliefs with your greatest desires. However, the Law of Attraction is complementary to a wide range of religious beliefs. As Michael Beckwith pointed out on Oprah's show, Jesus said, 'Pray believing that ye have that ye may receive.' Says Beckwith, "That's The Secret in a nutshell."
James Ray agrees. He says The Secret is about supporting the great spiritual traditions in a more modern form. "It really is just putting Christianity, Judaism, all the great teachings into a current vernacular," says Ray.
Along with Beckwith and Ray, other teachers featured in the movie include Jack Canfield, Lisa Nichols, Bob Proctor, and John Assaraf. (Esther Hicks appeared in the first edition of the movie, it is now a collector's item.)
