Have you heard about this book? I'm guessing yes, unless you live in a cave. I missed the Oprah episode on it but picked it up the other day at Target. I have to admit, I'm fascinated.
I'm only about halfway through the book but this is my take so far.
The secret is the Law of Attraction. Meaning like attracts like. It says that when you think a thought, you are attracting like thoughts to you. Humans are constantly transmitting thoughts which have a frequency. Thoughts are magnetic and they magnetically attract all like things that are on the same frequency.
In other words, if you constantly put out thoughts of positivity and focus in on what you really want in life, you probably have just about everything you could ever want.
The problem is that most of us, including myself, focus our thoughts on what we don't want to happen. Like this week when my toddlers got sick and I kept thinking over and over again that I didn't want to be sick. The universe just heard sick and transmitted this back to me in the form of me heaving over my kitchen sink. I realized that I should have been thinking, "I want to be healthy."
Maybe this all sounds like a lot of mumbo jumbo to you, but I think there is definitely some truth to it. I know for a fact that I can magically summon a cold sore to appear anytime I have an important event. I focus so hard on not wanting to get one that I always do! When I look back on my life I realize that I've caused much more good than bad to come into my life. There were several times that checks appeared out of nowhere when I was totally broke and wishing for money. Not millions of dollars but it felt like it at the time.
So do I believe? Absolutely! Besides, what can it hurt? Do you believe in the secret? If so, what positive thoughts are you going to start putting out to the universe?
