I just finished watching Oprah and I was so taken with this show. I had previously seen this movie and I recommend it as one of the most potentially life-changing movies one could possibly see. The content of it speaks the truth and I have always been one to seek the truth.

It says a lot about self-responsibility, that we are responsible for creating our lives, and we can start over in the re-creation of our lives any time. It speaks of forgiveness and gratitude, two values that have helped me through some deep changes in my life, and how it is possible to see any situation through this perception. There was a woman on the show who had just been fired from her job two hours before she watched the show and she talked about how she wrote a letter to her former employer thanking him, acknowledging that she did have a bad attitude, and how she was grateful for being fired, because now she is going to go back to school and do what she wants. Another women talked about having a 360 degree change in her attitudes about life.

The show also talked about what I am experiencing -- people in my life who just cannot accept me anymore because I am on the way to living my dreams as realities. They talked about how it is difficult for these people to be around people like me, because they do not want to be reminded of how they have not taken the steps they have truly wanted to take in their lives.
Better to attack me, or whoever, than look at themselves. Sigh, so true.

And Oprah talked about doing things for what I think is truly the right reason: asking how can I be of service? Its not about competition, its about finding our own unique voice and being of service in expressing that voice. Its not about doing it for money, or fame, its about doing what makes our heart sing. Hopefully, everyone knows what that thing is for them.

There were people on the show today who watched the first segment last week and they came to the show to talk about how much their life has changed in just one week.

The Secret. Highly recommended. I've seen it and I am going to be visiting some friends tonight who I saw it with and I am so looking forward to talking about this movie again.

Last week we had The Awakening posted on this site. This movie talks about similar concepts and I am learning that these ideas are really workable, really true for me, and could be true for anyone else.

Hi dogsmom,

The secret can only be purchased through an Australian company online. It is all about attracting positive things into your life and being aware that if you focus on the negative, that is what you will get..we get what we put energy into. I have started on my journey to better myself and my first step was through this movie and I am also doing self-hypnosis so that I can change the messages that I've been giving myself.

Thanks Gracenotes for posting.

I had mentioned this movie awhile ago, but glad Oprah got you guys to watch it also. I loved it. A friend of moe shared it w/me, you can either see it on line or purchase it, thesecret.tv
You can google "the secret" as well.

It's almost scary that we have that much control over our lives and it's scary to think bad thoughts, b/c you realize after watching that how our thinking and focus, attracts what we have and will have. Great stuff!

Lastly, I have to add that if you are a spiritual person you'll see how there are such similarities in how no matter what ones higher being is we all

I saw it as well, as I was really intrigued....they talked about the law of attraction being universal etc. I went online and typed that in and alot of website came up where people have already joined in years ago.

There was a forum called powerful intentions law of attraction. I am going to buy the DVD as well. I am waiting for money to come in, I haven't checked on the price yet.

I really thought it made sense. That everything you think and feels maginifys back to you in the universe. When you think negative and expect the worse all the time, that is what will happen.

I am pre-op for a fusion surgery of my spine, and I am already putting this principle into affect with myself. My surgery was in a few days and got bumped two more weeks. I was really upset.

But now I am thinking everything happens for a reason. Being grateful for my body, being grateful I have a surgeon. And thinking of how the future is going to be awesome with my fixed spine.

Love to talk more.

Hello Everyone,

I am so glad that others here have had the opportunity to watch this movie, want to watch this move, and/or maybe see a little of the Oprah show on this, and are attracted to the law of attraction.

I have been studying these principles for many years and they really are the foundation of my belief system. These are principles that have been in existence for centuries all over the world and my work in this area, along with the emotional healing I have worked on, has really allowed me to be a different person in this world. Different means I feel different, act different, have goals that are really me. I'm me, but my perceptions are so much different. I think all the recent emotional healing has really helped me to be more in touch with these truths.

When I went last week to do what I needed to do to get accepted at this university college program in the creative arts field, I did a lot of mental preparation beforehand, prepared exactly what they wanted me to prepare and saw myself doing the things I needed to do to get accepted, and seeing myself there, paticipating in the program, making progress, learning new things, basking in the sunshine, so to speak, calling up people to tell them I was accepted, and driving home in a state of joy. I'm not really a big visualizer, so I guess it was more on the feeling level. Waves of good feelings filled me and it was just utterly amazing the people I met that day, how "right" it felt to be on this campus, the perfect things people said to me. Its like all the good I envisioned for the this just manifested just bounced right back to me, and everything went so easily and effortlessly. I know on a deep level, this is for me. In a way, I created this. That's an example of working in this realm.

Rasputin, good to hear from you. No, kittie never came home, I guess she "went home." I never found her, but I went to a psychic friend I trust who is able to access energies and she told me that kittie had a run in with a skunk, she got sprayed, lost her sense of direction, injured herself, and passed on the next day. I honor kittie, I have pictures of her up and I talk to her picture and tell her what an awesome cat she is and I know that she is at peace and we will always love each other. I don't know if one ever really "gets over" lost pets, they just always are a part of us. Because I am relocating soon, I won't be having a new kittie for awhile.

Hopeful for change, I wish you the very best on your surgery. Since you have seen the movie, rememebr to picture yourself all healed and doing thing that were hard to do before. I am sure it will be a success, and yes being thankful for what you already have is definitely the rick, and seeing things done as if they already were.
God bless!

grace,

The mental preparation you did is such a great thing. I don't know if it actually helps things "manifest" as much as the change in your attitude causes these results. It doesn't matter how it happens, just that it does. Your personal frame of mind greaty affects the outcome. I'm so happy for you! You seem like such a sweet and sincere person. Keep thinking those good thoughts!

Ok..I've started another thread so that we can post all of our new positive thoughts. You can either post here or in the other thread..but lets start seeing changes in our lives and share it with others. It all starts with our attitudes and thinking.

Great thread Gracenotes!!!

I am all excited about my new life.

So glad to see this thread as I can home from work just in time see "The Reaction" show which aired this past Friday, 2-16.

I did not see the original show - but about 5 minutes into "The Reaction" quickly knew that it was something "right on" and timely for myself and recorded it.

My financee and I watched it this afternoon while holding hands.

Makes so much sense to me now!!!

I had heard about these concepts before - but kind of poohed-poohed the idea because it didn't seem to me to incorporate anger - which I find powerful. But I like how Oprah said that these concepts GO BEYOND "Positive Thinking." which I feel is KEY!!!!!!

I am finding now that I can have both......the law of attraction for good things to enter into my life in CONJUNCTION with being OK to feel anger....because anger is just another emotion.......another messenger of information.

The one thing that REALLY DID IT FOR ME.....was the idea of a flow or current. Being a lover of the ocean, I immediately identified with this as walking into the ocean....against the current - which I feel that I have been doing all of my life....instead of just "going with the flow" sort of speak. Makes PERFECT sense to me now!!!!! (I secretly wonder if folks that surf haven't already got this?????)

Another picture that just popped into my head was when I would (and still do) play with magnets!!!!

I LOVE to take two small magnets - and ACTUALLY FEEL & SEE the ACTUAL ENERGY of attraction and repulsion - you know what I mean......the polarity stuff that they talked about.

I have to be able to see and feel concepts such as these in a material format.....and the idea of the ocean "currents" and the magnets reaction to attraction/repulsion.....FINALLY made sense to my logical mind!!!!!

I've been "going against the currents" and attracting "repulsion" my entire life - and you know what.....it just ain't working.

I am so grateful for this show and for this post in that I can share my observations and feelings.

I think that the timing is just simply right for me to adopt this mindset. Just have to keep remembering that it is still OK to feel anger for a bit - feel it, acknowledge it for its information - then let it go. Just a part of this whole scene and not an either/or like I had previously thought. (Does this make sense to anyone?)

Anyway - great thread Gracenotes!!!!!

Am "grateful" that you started this!!!!

Ain't NO TELLIN what's in store for me now!!!!!!!!! 🙂

Truth,

I love your analogies of the ocean waves and magnets. I remember playing with magnets when I was a kid.

Anger is information for sure. For me, it is a sign that I am feeling victimized and maybe its time to turn some things around in my mind. Good to pay attention to these feelings. Not healthy to stuff these feelings either. Sometimes I need to verbalize the anger I feel. Sometimes I just talk to myself if no one is around. The feeling does not last for long. Has to do something with empowerment.

Nothing like right timing. You go girl!!!

Gracenotes.

Yep Per!!!!! No More distinguishing between "negative" and "postive" emotions........goes way beyond that.

I am glad that you liked my analogies.

Once I could transfer these concepts into ACTUAL, MATERIAL, TANGIBLE examples.......was the key to opening my mind and heart to, what I suspect are going to be INCREDIBLE circumstances in my life which will simply just.......present themselves - - - - you know?????? (NOW that I have learned to just get the hell out of my own way!!!!!!!!)

NOW that my intellect no longer has to struggle with these concepts.....it's all just a gellin' together!!!!!!!

🙂

If you are looking for a copy you can obtain it at BORDERS bookstore, Barnes & Noble, BEST BUY....
It's DEFINENTLY worth every penny...About a week ago Larry King Live interviewed all of the people that were in "The Secret" and there is going to be "The Secret 2" or a sequel to this. I can't wait but don't wait any longer to view, it is a life-changing opportunity!

Have you ever attended a Religious Science meeting? I mention it because it is founded on the idea that "Thought is Creative". Basically, you put the thought out there and the Universe answers, really a lot like good Karma.

May be worth checking out. (Not a religion, but a community of positive thought.)

Yay!!
