When “The Secret” was revealed back in 2006, it became big news and even Oprah shared it with her audiences in two different episodes of her talk show. The book became a national bestseller for 146 consecutive weeks and has over 21 million copies in print. That is a bunch of people that are looking for answers in how to live a happier and more fulfilled life.
I appreciate everyone who has brought more light to the idea that we can create our lives, that it is okay to ask for what you need and what you want and look for it to show up in a big way for you. I applaud each author and contributor to developing and deepening our understanding of this principle, that is even found in the Bible.
Over the years since the release of this book, I have seen people struggle to understand this Law of Attraction. Particularly how for some of us, it isn’t working as easily or as simply as described in the pages of this book. We begin to believe that since we didn’t get what we wanted, then this must be a hoax or else we just don’t have the will power and stamina for good things to come into our lives. I, myself, went though a period where I took deep issue with my ‘then’ interpretation of the Law of Attraction in regards to painful personal life experiences. After my first miscarriage at 20 weeks, I interpreted the Law to say that I invited and asked for this pain and misery to come upon me, I wanted my child to “die” and for my family to grieve, that I made this happen. It was all my fault. The thought that I had potentially attracted this experience into my life was honestly too much for my fragile heart to bear.
As I have approached the Law of Attraction again, years later, in a more healthy state of mind, I recognized a couple of misunderstood and vital aspects of this Law. When you first hear of the Law of Attraction, it seems so easy and that all you need to do is state what you want and it comes to you. Sometimes, it can be as simple as this, and I believe God and His Angels have a great part in that. But, there are other deeper and more important things that we want to attract, that seem to be much more of a struggle to bring into reality. We keep setting the intention and declaring what we want, but nothing happens and not nearly fast enough.
Here is The NEW Secret about The Secret a.k.a The Law of Attraction.
Look at this magnet. This is a powerful object and can attract small and seemingly insignificant things, as well as large and heavy things.
What gives it such power?
It is made up of certain properties that give it the power to attract big and small objects that are made up of similar properties.
What can we learn from this Magnet?
Bascially, what we are made of, our essence and core, WHO WE ARE, will attract more quickly and more powerfully what we are seeking in the first place. Everything from our needs, to our wants, and all that is in our highest good.
To BECOME is truly the power of the living experience. We each have the power of choice, to choose for ourselves what we desire to become and thus what we desire to experience. I believe our spirits are so incredibly intelligent, that we might honestly attract difficult experiences to teach us more clearly who we are to become, but we can likewise attract positive and joyful experiences to teach us these things as well. We understand at a very deep level, which at times can become clouded by the conscious mind, that every moment we still have the choice to become something from each unique, joyful or painful experience.
This is where there is a great advantage to one who sees themself as BE-ing what they desire, not just merely WANT-ing. It can get a little tricky to attract the things that ARE us, because of the many thousands of thoughts and experiences that have become part of our subconcious mind process and naturally deter us from what is actually true about us. The more centered we become on who we are, the more the Law of Attraction will work in our favor for all that is in our highest good.
This is where the power of Affirmations step in. An affirmation isn’t simply a positive statement. A potent and powerful affirmation declares to the world WHO you are. Affirmations innately are designed to let the Law of Attraction – or ‘like attracts like’ – play out.
In the Spanish language, the verb SER means TO BE. It is used to describe attributes and characteristics of a permanent quality, or a state of BE-ing. To say this in the first person it would be “soy” or “I am”.
When we state affirmations we should apply this and state each one in the first person, present tense and always in the positive.
If you were to say for instance: “I am wealthy.” Do you believe it? Do you feel it? Are you grateful for ALL your wealth?
You might begin to feel false beliefs start to bubble up like some of the following examples.
“I don’t deserve wealth”
“I am not worthy”
“Wealthy people are proud – I’d rather be humble and poor”
“It’s not okay with God to have money”
That is only the tip of the iceberg. In my line of work, I identify those thoughts, experiences, emotions, and beliefs, whether our own or those that have been imposed upon us by our culture or past generations. When you shine light and truth on anything that is not true, the darkness is quickly dispelled and only the light and truth remains.
I use affirmations everyday in my work as a tool to help you BE and BECOME what it is that your Spirit already knows is true, and thus will attract to you everything necessary for your happiness and in your highest potential.
So, if you are in a hurry to attract health, wealth, happiness, good relationships, and so much more…the fastest way to find what you are looking for is to first start by BE-ing what you want to experience and receive. Use an Affirmation as that first step to BE what you desire to become and trust where that leads your actions.
