By now, you probably know what “The Secret” is. If you haven’t, the secret is this:
You become what you think about
In other words, the “Secret” is the Law of Attraction.
“The Secret” is a self-help documentary film by author Rhonda Byrne that talks about the importance of the Law of Attraction. It has become a world-wide hit, and has helped many people improve their lives.
The Law of Attraction itself isn’t a secret. In fact, it has been written many times before by authors from over a hundred years ago. The works of these authors have become the inspiration for many great books in our global community today.
The works of these authors fall under the category of “New Thought”. Examples of such works include “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace Wattles in 1910 and the best-selling “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill in 1953.
Did you know? Esther Hicks is considered to be the main modern proponent of the Law of Attraction. She was one of the “secret teachers” featured in the original version of “The Secret” film.
However, Esther Hicks was later edited out of “The Secret” film, when in fact she holds a very important role in the story. You might even say that if there were no Esther Hicks, there would be no “The Secret”.
So what did Esther Hicks talk about in the movie, before it was edited out?
In a first draft version, a scene showed Esther Hicks explaining the basic concept of vibrations:
You are vibrational beings in a vibrational universe.
Many people are not yet ready to acknowledge that they are vibrational. They prefer to see themselves as blood on bone, specimens that they see in the mirror.
And we want to remind you that everything you observe with your physical senses is vibrational interpretation.
Esther continues to explain that everything we hear, everything we see, and everything we touch, smell, and taste is merely a vibrational interpretation – that everything is energy.
So what’s the benefit of acknowledging that you are a vibrational being, and that everything you sense is also a vibration?
The benefit is that you can learn how to attract the success you want by vibrating in the same energy of frequency yourself.
This is called resonance – one thing responds to the vibration of another thing because they have the same resonant frequency.
What it means is if you want happiness, then be happy.
If you want health, then be healthy.
If you want wealth, then be wealthy.
Many success mentors emphasize the power of the be – do – have mindset. It always begins with being what you want in life, before you can have it. When you are being what you want in life, you start to attract more of that which you are being.
If all this sounds too conceptual, consider this one simple exercise. If you want more happiness in your life, then start by being happy yourself. Practice smiling more often to people whom you meet every day. You will start to be more happy yourself, and the people around you will bring more happiness for you also.
Start practicing the secret of the law of attraction today, and attract the success that you want.
