I’ve been a student of the power of mind for a long time, and it is a topic of endless fascination to me. If you’re on this site, you’ve undoubtedly heard of books and movies such as “The Secret” which took the world by storm just 11 short years ago. The film and subsequent book helped regular people begin to awaken to the idea that perhaps our futures DO lie within our own hands, and are not subject to some vengeful supreme being ready to punish (or reward) us on a whim.
Too Simplistic – Heavily Criticized
Of course, that film and book were very simplistic in that they basically just touched on the notion that there are laws governing our universe. People criticized the movie for many reasons: lack of scientific validation, causing people to have false hope, blaming victims of natural disasters or other tragedies by implying that these victims were somehow on the “same frequency” or “vibration” of the event, etc.
So, while it was a good film in that it encouraged people to look at life differently, it simply was not enough.
I’d be willing to bet that the majority of people who either saw the movie and/or read the book started out with great hopes, and began to attempt to visualize the outcomes they wanted in their lives. What probably happened next is predictable, and I’d be willing to bet further that the majority of those people gave up when their desires never materialized.
Does that mean that there is nothing to any of this?
I’m a person who doesn’t give up that easily. While my own experiences towards manifesting the life of my dreams have definitely not been earth-shattering successes, I have – since watching and reading The Secret – moved on to learning more about life. I want to know what the keys to success, health, and happiness are.
I’m pleased to say that while I’m not living in my dream home on the water (yet), my life has most certainly gotten better. I began to learn more about the mind itself – the conscious mind and its relation to the subconscious, as well as the medium through which desire can become a material reality (or as real as our lives here are).
I’ve read, absorbed, and have been applying the teachings of dozens of “masters” and teachers more and more each day.
So, it’s my hope that in the pages here on this blog that I can share some of these resources with you so that you, too, can learn more about your own mind, and what, realistically, you can do. One thing I do know for certain is that you need to take some type of action in order to reach your goals. The “secret” is to learn to identify and act on the actions that are inspired and get you excited to move forward!
