Spiritual Life Coach Tip: Discussing an aspect of The Secret
Molly Gordon who is the author of Authentic Marketing wrote a blog called, “Why The Secret Hasn’t Made You a Millionaire.”
Since I have launched my life coaching business, I have noticed that it is popular to bash The Secret. The Secret is a movie by Rhonda Byrne that describes the Law of Attraction. The best description of The Secret I have heard is, “an infomercial for happiness.”

In her blog she writes, The Secret won’t make you successful and states that it suggests that the means for getting from where you are to where you want to go by invocation spiritual laws is hogwash because the ego is unable to manipulate spiritual laws for its own purpose. I do not understand how that can be hogwash because ego is always a part of the spiritual process. When you go through the processes described in The Secret you are closer to being connected with your higher self. The Secret is basically feeling good and visualizing where you are supposed to go. It is very easy to take pot shots at The Secret as being an incomplete picture of the Law of Attraction. That is like taking pot shots at a first grade math book for having an incomplete picture of math.
If you lived your life without having a first grade understanding of math, learning addition and subtraction would be very beneficial. Just as learning the basics of Law of Attraction is very beneficial. Exactly like math, which you also can learn the wonders of multiplication to calculus so you can have a better understanding of the world we live in, it is the same with the Law of Attraction. There is more to the Law of Attraction than just visualizing and that is no reason to take pot shots at The Secret.
The Law of Attraction first starts with you knowing what you want. Then it has you getting into the best feeling possible and removing your resistance to what you want. You let go of the negative thoughts and emotions that you have associated with what you want. You take the actions with inspiration. The Secret is mostly about knowing what you want and then feeling the best you can about having what you want.
