Re: What do you all think of The Secret?
It sounds like the normal "having a positive attitude" with a metaphysical philosophy.

The "law" of attraction might be real, but it is seems to be over-amplified in "The Secret".

For example, if you're struggling financially, being relentlessly positive it can certinally help in many ways.

In the metaphysical aspect, you MAY attract positive people who will open up opportunities for you. If that is actually how things work.

In the realistic sense, being relentlessly positive will help make you a more happy person. Your attitude will attract people of the same attitude. You may also open up new opportunities with a bright and positive attitude.

The thing that won't happen, is winning the lottery because you practiced the "techniques" in The Secret.

In conclusion, there is no need to believe in "The Secret". Framing everything in a positive light and focusing on what you want to do in life is, in general, is a life-changing attitude.

Yes, it is all about being positive and not letting doubt crowd it out. We bring to us who we really are. And if we don't like who we are then we need to change it.

this is not anything I have ever used, but a friend mentioned it years ago.

Curious what others think.

Re: What do you all think of The Secret?
the secret is close but not right on target

it's not the intention you put out for yourself, it's the intention others have towards you that is the most powerful force, your intention for yourself is like a trickle of water compared to a firehose of someone else's intention towards you.

so the trick is make other people have those intentions towards you that you want for yourself

Could you say more about this? I think I just had an "aha" moment...

I think you are absolutely right that it is other people's intention towards you that makes it happen. That really makes more sense to me coming from my own experience. Wow!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 48960090


I know when I am in a bad mood I tend to run into problems with people. Get myself in a good mood and the troublesome people disappear. I'll just find people smiling at me more and doing nice things for me. I don't understand it all but being in an upbeat mood really does matter.

Re: What do you all think of The Secret?
Have any of you had experiences where you manifested the stuff you wanted to happen? Like what and how?
 Quoting: Sweet Angel


The Secret is a New Age manifesto obscured with seeming positives..it asks and thanks the UNIVERSE. Who leads this MATERIAL world, God or Satan? That's the answer to your question. By the way, Oprah credits this 'programming' with her success in acquiring certain roles in the 'industry'.
