How to use the Secret

In my current journey into the book “The Secret” I’m learning just how I can effectively use the techniques taught.  “You are a creator, and there is an easy process to create using the law of attraction.” -Rhonda Byrne  

I agree that we are the creators of the life and situations we find ourselves in.  Sometimes the effects of our thoughts are immediate, in other situations it takes years to see the effects of our thoughts.  The beauty of life is that we control our thoughts and thus we can change our circumstances.

“The Creative Process used in The Secret, which was taken from the New Testament in the Bible…” -Rhonda Byrne

Over the years of studying I’ve learned that many of life’s universal laws and lessons come from the Bible.  “Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” – Matthew 21:22

Step 1: Ask

The very first step is to ask and make a command to the Universe or God.  Let them or it know what you want.  “The Universe responds to your thoughts.” -Rhonda Byrne 

My practice is to write down the things I want on paper (goals sheet) and I read them out loud to myself daily in the morning.  I learned in my Entrepreneurship studies that most successful people carry their goals written down on paper in the wallet or purse and read them often. 

Here is what happens when you use this technique:

  1. You become clear on what you want
  2. You become accountable to what you have written down
  3. This becomes an ‘action’ plan
  4. It reminds you to stay focused

Step 2: Believe

The second step is to believe that it’s already yours.  “See the things that you want as already yours.  Know that they will come to you at need.  Then let them come.  Don’t fret and worry about them.  Don’t think about your lack of them…” -Robert Collier

“How it will happen, how the Universe will bring it to you is not your concern or job.  Allow the Universe to do it for you.” -Rhonda Byrne 

Now, that is something new!  My parents have always taught me to keep busy, work towards what I want, to go out and get it.  For me this means knowing that the Universe and God will work in mysterious ways to put me in the situations to make what I’ve asked for to come true.

Step 3: Receive

“Step three, and the final step in the process, is to receive.  Begin to feel wonderful about it.  Feel the way you will feel once it arrives.  Feel it now.” -Lisa Nichols

“…and all you have to do to receive is feel good.  When you are feeling good, you are on the frequency of receiving.” -Rhonda Byrne

That is one of the things I practice daily and help others to understand.  Life is too short to focus on negative and bad, it is much easier and in my opinion much better to focus on feeling good.

 “Action will sometimes be required, but if you’re really doing it in line with what the Universe is trying to bring to you, it’s going to feel joyous.  You’re going to feel so alive.  Time will just stop.  You could do it all day.” – Bob Doyle

As you start to explore your life and your current situation you might hear someone say “do something you love in life”.  I have Mark Twain quoted on my website. “Do something you love and you will not work a day in your life”. 

In the above steps it might seem like no action is required, this is where I would explore the notion of working towards the goals in a positive and happy way.  Everyone that I’ve learned from that accomplished something in their life has taken some action along with asking and/or praying. 

Start today to think about and asking for the things you want to pass in your life.  Do me a favor and send out this thought into the Universe. “May Luke sell 10 million copies of his success manifesto in the next 50 days and let it become a worldwide best seller.”

Live it up my friends,
