Ive taken exeprts from the Oprah pages if thats OK with you Avro and linked it
I was watching T.V ,flipping through and saw something untitled "the secret" ,it was on Oprah ,I'm not a Oprah fan but this caught me ,The laws of attraction and the basic Idea just seemed plausible actually possibly making sense --Does anyone know of this ?

The Secret as the law of attraction, which is the principle that "like attracts like." Rhonda calls it "the most powerful law in the universe," and says it is working all the time. "What we do is we attract into our lives the things we want, and that is based on what we're thinking and feeling," Rhonda says. The principle explains that we create our own circumstances by the choices we make in life. And the choices we make are fueled by our thoughts—which means our thoughts are the most powerful things we have here on earth.

The law of attraction means that everything that happens to you—good or bad—you attract to yourself. Lisa describes it as if you're placing an order. "If you were at a restaurant and you ordered something, you fully expect it to come served that way. That's how the universe is. You're putting out orders—consciously and unconsciously," Lisa says. "So if you say, 'I'll never have a great relationship,' you just placed an order."


"Most people focus on how it is. We talk about our current reality—'I'm in debt. I'm overweight. I'm not happy. I'm sad. The world's not working. We're at war,' whatever. And the more you think about that and focus on that and talk about it, the more you attract that [negativity]," he says

Although thoughts are powerful, Jack says the feelings that the thoughts generate are what actually attract things into our lives. "Too many times people are thinking a thought like, 'I want to be my perfect body weight of 185 pounds.' But they look at the scale and they see 205 and they think, 'But I'll never make it,' … so they feel bad," Jack says. Instead of wallowing in those negative thoughts, you need to find the positive in the situation

Jack and James say that this means there is no such thing as a coincidence. "Everything happens by principles and laws in our universe. And so consequently, we have an absolutely unlimited power within us," James says.

Anyways, there lots more to explore and this just was looking for some thoughts on this subject thanks

Best of the day to you !!

YES!!!!!!!!! My VERY first Metaphysical concept that I GOT!!! The book I read was Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting. by Lynn Grabhorn A MUST read! But her next 2 books were nutty (I think she had a brain tumor) she died soon after. That was my first Message Board and I met my Soulmate through it........memories LOL Seriously a fantastic book!

Another great concept is the 17 seconds of Bliss. If you can hold a positive thought 17 seconds then youur mood is changed the longer you hold it the more it rises. Thats by the Hicks I dont know if they have any books.

Hi Temperance, Like attracts like. You know if you are in a grumpy mood it will put the people around you in a bad mood too. If you are always thinking negative you will naturley attract people that agree and have similar veiws of life.
I find I need to stay away from certain people to allow myself to break out of the negative thought cycle.
When I became a father I saw a fresh mind that was influenced by me greatly. My negative thinking was directly reflected in my childs behavior. This taught me a valuable lesson on positive thinking.
I really don't think it's a secrect

Ah but the secret is in applying the practice to your life. Lets say your broke and you just keep thinking how broke you are. You remain broke. But apply the law of attraction and see what happens. Think how rich you are not just money wise but life wise. You become blissful in thinking of all the great things are in your life. Im doing so you become a cosmic magnet and the true happiness your feeling attracts more and more into your life.

This is one of those things that people can easily prove to themselves. If you're a skeptic, next time you're in a nasty mood or something is going wrong in your life, think positively and see what happens!

I don't think it's much of a secret... my mom has been telling me to think good thoughts for as long as I can remember, and even though I can't always do it, when I do have the strength it's amazing what can come of it.

I could go into some details about my thoughts on this, but the critics on this board can be a bit overbearing sometimes, and I'm not in the mood right now.

I think there a bit more to it than just thinking "I need sex, I want sex Now " I think by applying positive thoughts to say your wife (she seeing you in a positive manner or a positive mind frame ) or a girl you met that may led to sex --lololo

The opposite being Telling your wife as she walks in the door from a long day at work" I n eed sex " --we all now where (depending on your wifes appetite for sex ) that will get you --lol

clear than the opinions on the outside, then you have mastered your
life.

90. You are not here to try to get the world to be just as you desire
it. You are here to create the world around you that you choose.

91. And allow the world as others choose to see it, to exist as well.

92. People think that if everyone knows the power of the LOA there
won't be enough to go around. This is a lie that's been ingrained in
us and makes so many greedy.

93. The truth is there is more than enough love, creative ideas,
power, joy, happiness to go around.

94. All of this abundance begins to shine through a mind that is
aware of its own infinite nature. There's enough for everyone. See
it. Believe it. It will show up for you.

95. So let the variety of your reality thrill you as you choose all
the things you desire and get behind the good feelings of all your
desires.

96. Write your script. When you see things you don't desire, don't
think about them, write about them, talk about them, push against
them, or join groups that focus on them remove your attention from
don't desires and instead place them on do desires.

97. We are mass energy. Everything is energy. EVERYTHING!!!

98. Don't define yourself by your body......you are the infinite being
that's connected to everything in the universe.

99. One energy field. Our bodies have distracted us from our energy.
We are the infinite field of unfolding possibilities, the creative
force.

100. Are your thoughts worthy of you? If not - NOW is the time to
change them. You can begin right where you are right now. Nothing
matters but this moment and what you are focusing your attention on.
