Many of us have read or at least heard of the book the seemed to have swept the nation so quickly, “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne (originally a movie). The Secret is truly one of the best books I have ever read and I can say with 100% confidence that it has changed the lives of millions of people.
The book is centered around one concept and one concept only: The Law of Attraction
Sure, it dives deeper into samples and goes into detailed strategies, but the Law of Attraction is what The Secret is all about. In this article, we’ll go over 4 key principles from the book that you must understand if you want the law of attraction to work for you.
1. Like Attracts Like
This concept is simple as can be, but sometimes can be confusing to the naked eye. Basically, it comes down to this quote..,
“If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand”
This phrase has done wonders for so many people. If you can clearly visualize your goal and vision in your mind, and see it so clearly that you can literally feel it, then soon enough you will have it. You have to feel it. That’s the most important part. Feel the feelings of already having it and it will manifest in your life.
2. Ask, Believe, Receive
This one took me the longest to fully understand, but it is crystal clear to me now. Sometimes, when we dream, we don’t have any idea how we will accomplish those dreams. We see the big intimidating mountain in front of us, and sense our lack of skills to build a plane to fly over it, and give up. This is not the way.
Coming off of key #1, get a vision of what your clearly want and although there will still be a mountain in front of you, when you “ask” for what you want, and clearly work towards it diligently, acting and feeling as if you already made it to the other side of the mountain, soon enough the universe will correspond with your feelings by providing tangible results.
You have to ask (envision), believe (have total faith) and then receive.
3. Gratitude is a Powerful Process
This is quick and easy. Gratitude is the most powerful feeling in the world. It has been proven that you cannot feel upset and angry while also feeling truly gracious and thankful. So if you can feel gracious and thankful as often as possible (and not just blindly say it to please people), you will have more good feelings and energy to harness and use towards your goals.
4. Laughter attracts joy and it relieves negativity
Laughter has been proven to relieve all negativity. When you are laughing, you are doing one simple thing: Having fun.
Endorphins are sparking like crazy and feelings of joy are sweeping across your body. These feelings are the most powerful that you will ever feel. You can then harness those feelings into your powerful mind and feel the feelings of success and power.
As Jack Canfield says, “It is your job to feel happy and joyful…now!”
