My wife and I first discovered the "law of attraction" several years ago when we ran across the teachings of Bob Proctor and began to read books like "Think and Grow Rich" and "The Law of Attraction" by Michael Losier.
As we began to use the principles daily, we were amazed at our ability to "create our own reality" in a very conscious and deliberate way.
In fact, here's what has changed for us. We used to live in small cinderblock house and literally earned less than $1,200 per month.
By using the principles found in these books and a home study course called "Beyond Freedom", our lives are dramatically different.
Today, we earn more in a month than many Americans earn in a year. I work less than 20 hours a week. My children have more stamps in their passports than most grown adults.
None of that is to sound boastful at all. If anything, it's humbling. But, it's also very powerful to realize that I created this entirely new lifestyle simply by making a DECISION and using the principles talked about in the movie "The Secret" and in these powerful personal development books.
I'd love to talk to others who are interested in learning more about the law of attraction. If I can be of assistance, I'm happy to!
You can find me on the official Secret message boards. Just do a search for my name if you'd like to have a dialogue.
Hi ON2 LF,
She won't come up with the money any time soon, so she's safe. Except she was seduced by The Secret on Oprah (ugh). We had a brief discussion about the unreality of The Secret's ideology and she knows it's true. She said, though, that she wants to keep her high (high on positivity) as long as she can; she didn't want to hear my critique right now.
Oh yes! The rock bizo. That's right. There was this cheesy reconstruction in the movie to justify the selling of ordinary rocks for $40 a piece. You've just got to believe, remember.
I didn't get that from the movie AT ALL. As I remember, they were actually joking about the fact that the guy wanted to buy an ordinary rock that had come from a creek. The point of the rock story was that the belief and intention was what made the rock special, not where it came from or whether or not it cost money.

There's a lot to be said for 'staying positive'. I don't think anyone in their 'right mind' can deny it. But, and this is a big BUT, anyone in their 'right mind' can see that single-minded postive thinking/feeling will either lead to single-minded depression or a need to refill that Prozac prescription.Quote
And I expect when anyone gripes that this Law of Attraction business doesn't seem to work, "I willed and I willed and still I didn't get a million dollars...", people find themselves then attacked with the logic that if you can't make the Law of Attraction work for you, there must be something deep-seated and wrong with you. Lots of searching for trauma and encouragement towards endless introspection urged to find what is holding you back.
Wow, look at the 'teachers' (cons) The Secret people are referring us to!
