I’ve never watched the movie but i have read the book. I enjoyed it, it’s a very simplified version of manifestation/affirmation/loa. Many of my lovely followers know i’m a fan of her other book The Magic because i shared the 28 day Gratitude Challenge on my blog. It created a lot of magical success and manifestations into reality including getting our new beautiful apartment! I also have The 100 Truths from the secret on one of my pages :)The Law of attraction is very real, although personally The Secret is merely thetip of the iceberg when it comes to LOA, there aresooo many methods out there ranging from gratitude, placing affirmations, tarot cards,enochian magic,hermetics,alchemy to sexmagick ;). The morei’ve researched into Abraham and Esther Hicks i really enjoy their approach to the LOA. Their book Ask and It is Given is very popular, i’ve still been wanting to read that one. In general there are numerous laws of attraction because it is what creates reality. What we think we literally become. You are an energy being composed of your thoughts and feelings, what you speak is what you are naturally going to attract. If you keep saying words such as “ I am never good enough at drawing” subconsciously you are telling yourself you aren’t so that is what you attract and if you say “i never make enough money, then that is also what you will attract and so forth.I do think the secret holds a lot of missing components such as there are karmic means when you particular wish for things in a desirable manner. Also there is the concept of free will, you do NOT want to use Law of attraction on a person without their consent, otherwise it is very karmic and manipulative. Manipulation while using the law of attraction is a big mistake that you don’t want to create because it can attract the threefold law. When we use kundalini for dark purposes it will always have consequences. I’ve seen it happen, believe me on this one.
It is the energy we place around the manifestation is what we will attract. So if you only want money to become richer and get material things, you are still not appreciating the value of money and how you view money itself won’t change. If you say you hate money, you are obviously not going to attract it because the universe only hears you don’t like money therefore why should you attract it? If you say you hate love and relationships, naturally you won’t attract them. If you begin to love yourself, you will naturally begin to attract love into your life.
