The Secret Behind 'The Secret'
How-to guide to making it work for reals!
What "The Secret" left
out... (They got it only half right!)
|FOREWORD: (about the secret):
In 2008, there was this sign on this building in Orem, Utah, which
read: "The Secret". I drove by that building many
times wondering what the big secret was all about. Finally, one
day, I pulled into the parking lot, parked, and took my son into the
building determined to find out what the "big" secret was.
When I entered the building, there was one big room, with a
reception-like desk, not attended by anyone, and lots of small cubicles
with a person in each one. I stood in front of the reception-like desk and waited
to be waited on. After a few seconds, someone noticed our presence
and asked, "May I help you?" (as if to say, "What are you
I replied, "Yes. What's the secret?"
The person who had addressed me previously, said,
"Huh?" (as if to say, "What are you talking
I again replied, but a bit louder, so that everyone in the office
could hear me, "What is the secret?"
By this time, everyone in the office was looking right at me.
Another lady in the office came over to the reception desk. She
said something like, "What can I do for you?" By this
time I was getting irritated. I mean they all work in a building
with only two huge words on it (The Secret), and nobody inside appeared
to know what I was talking about.
I explained, "There's a sign on your building that says, 'The
Secret,' so I came in here to find out what the secret is."
Finally, she got it. She smiled and she said, "If you want
to know the secret, you have to buy this book," holding up a book
entitled, "The Secret".
Long story short: I bought the book and I read it...all of it.
I started to put it into practice. Sometimes it worked and
sometimes it didn't. When it worked, it was fantastic, but when it
didn't, it was a let-down. I kept thinking that there must be some
kind of limitations put on this. It wasn't until many years later
that I learned, that the secret was only half the secret.
It takes both the secret, and the secret behind the secret to make it
work 100% of the time. Still, there are limitations. Like
you can't bring someone back from the dead, you can't make others fall
in love with you (although you can increase your chances!), and you
can't control other people, because people have free-will. Other
than that, the sky's the limit!
Herein below, I elucidate the other half of the secret out of
the kindness of my heart... (free of charge, as it should
be. Everyone should know this information!)
I'm not selling anything, so your pocketbook is safe. :)
So, show me by a raise of hands, how many of you have read The
Secret. Great! Almost all of you. Now, show me how many of
you have read it and tried to apply the principles therein. Mmmm, hmmmm....a
little less. Now, show me how many of you have had any success with
it. Just what I thought, less than half.
The reason for the lack of success with it is because there is
a secret behind the secret, which the makers of The Secret apparently
didn't know, (or are keeping a secret). There is much to be said for
positive thinking, but it only has limited success, without the other
part: your emotions.
- THE OTHER HALF: YOUR EMOTIONS
That's right: your emotions. If your emotions are
not in sync with your positive thinking, it ain't gonna work, hun.
I learned about the other half of of the secret from various
sources, like Greg Bradon, Bashar, Abraham Hicks, and others. The way to
manifest positive and wonderful things in your life is to feel the feeling as if
whatever you wanted has already happened. It's actually that simple in
principal--the application of which is a bit harder.
When I write, "...a bit harder," what I mean is that
one must first rid one's self of all negative emotions. The best way to do
that is through Zen meditation (which is creating a state of being where there
is absence of thought and emotion). The best way to do that is by relaxing
and focusing on your breathing--slow, deep breaths--only focus on your
breathing, nothing else. Incidentally, this is the way to conquer
insomnia, so I end up falling asleep half the time I try to get myself in the
proper frame of mind and heart.
Then, after you have cleared your mind and heart, you fill
your mind with thoughts of what you want (keeping it general, rather than
specific), and fill your heart with the feelings that you would feel as if it
had already happened.
- KEEPING IT GENERAL, RATHER THAN SPECIFIC
It is important to keep it general, because the universe may
wish to manifest your desires in its own way (not yours). Let me give you
|I wish for so-and-so to love me.
(You cannot go against free will).
|I wish for someone to love me, and I to love that person
with a deep and everlasting love. (Then, feel the love, as if you
already had it).
|I wish for 1,000,000 dollars.
|I wish for more money to come to me. (Then, imagine
yourself with lots of money, and feel the feeling of being rich)!
|I wish for a Lamborghini.
|I wish for a new, fast, reliable, sports car. (Then,
imagine yourself in the seat, behind the steering wheel of such a
- KEEPING IT POSITIVE AND NOT NEGATIVE
Any negative words in the thinking will result in the opposite
of what you want.
|I don't want to fall in love.
(You WILL fall in love again, and probably get hurt again)!
|I wish to remain single and alone, without love.
|I wish for someone to love me, and I to love that person
with a deep and everlasting love. (Then, feel the feeling of that
love, as if you already had it).
|I don't have any money! Please fill my
empty bank account.
(Your bank account will remain empty).
|I wish for more money to come to me. (Then, feel the
feeling of having more money).
|I'm so fat. I want to lose weight.
(You will gain weight).
|I am slender. (Then, feel how happy you would be if
you were slender). Imagine yourself being slender and looking at
yourself admiringly in the mirror. Also, keep in mind that it's
not how much you eat, it's what you eat. Stop the junk food!
|I want bigger muscles.
(This is bad, because the focus is on the lack of muscles).
|I am strong. (Then, imagine how happy you would be
if you were stronger). Then, you've got to put some effort in...I
mean you've got to work-out at least 3 times a week, dude!
- GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT
If you are looking for love, it's not going to happen over
night, but the universe will be putting people into your path that you could
initiate a relationship with (and it could be as fast as the next day!).
It is important to be looking for those opportunities that the universe places
before you as you feel the feelings of being in love.
If you are in need of money, it's not going to happen over
night, but the universe will "pull strings" (of fate) and make it
possible for you to obtain more money (and it won't take long). At first
it will be small. For example, your bank may realize that it made a
mistake in your last statement and credit your account with 75cents. It is
important to feel grateful for even the smallest "gift" from the
universe. And that brings me to my next point...
By feeling grateful for even the smallest event that is in the
direction that you are wanting to go.
For instance, you are looking for love, and some
handsome/pretty person gives you the eye, feel happy! Feel grateful for
that little thing! And then, you will get more!
If you are wanting money, and then you find a dollar on the
ground, feel happy and grateful for the gift, and then the universe will bring
you more (and bigger) gifts!
If you want to be slender, and you start working in that
direction (say a change in diet and exercise), and you only lose one pound, be
happy and be grateful for that small event. Celebrate it! Have a
party (with carrot sticks and celery, of course)! Then, the next day, you
will lose two pounds, and the next day, three, etc.
This system really works! Try it! What have you
got to lose, besides weight?
I love you guys, and I wish for you all to be happy.
