what i'm going to do is when i get my bills ... i'm going to write zeros in the balance over top of the number and focus on how it will feel seeing that. then the other thing you can do is automate payments to come out of your account or anything that involves the least amount of time focusing on repaying your debt.

We watched it last night. Dh and I kept looking at each other in amazement. There is so much in there that is complementary to ideas that we've studied before, but the "secret" was new to us. It was like a lightbulb! Intuitively, we were both like, Yes! It also fits well with our discipline ideas "ask for what you DO want, not what you don't..." Anyway, I was up all night and morning nursing two little ones and had a lot of time to think about how to put this into action.

Dh calls me a few minutes ago SO excited. He's usually not all that excitable He has taken the children out this am to run some errands. He and ds1 are having a conversation about animals. Ds said, "I'd love to see a baby dear with spots." Dh is thinking and feeling about deer. They are driving, and yes, what come walking out into the freakin' road? TWO spotted fawns. Dh said they were smaller than a labrador retriever. Brand new. Can you believe that? We talked about expressing gratitude for this, too.....I'm so excited.

Thank you, Tracy, for starting this thread. I'm very grateful and so excited. I really feel like this is life altering for us. I'm feeling positive for the first time in a long time.

I love to see people getting so much from the movie. Most of it was not new to me but I was soo inspired by it and I love these threads, they really help me keep things in a positive direction. You can know it all but if you don't apply it ... well you know what happens.

As soon as I find myself thinking negative thoughts, I am catching myself and turnig my thoughts on what I do want or am appreciative of.

It is amazing what can get me spiraled into a negative direction. for example the other day I caught a few minutes of the Gotti's on TV. I am not a fan, but for whatever reason I stopped the remote there for a few minutes. I saw the youngest son in a limo getting mobbed by girls and he says to one of them, "hey go beat uip that other girl, she took my jacket"

I swtched the channel. All in all I watched maybe 3 or 4 minutes.

Well the next day I was cooking dinner and I remebered the show. I started to go off in my mind about this is why the world is the way it is and is that what this woman is proud of??? that she is spreading this mentality out into the world.........................Whoa!

I caught myself and immediatley got into what I appreciate about life. It was hard though, I wanted to indulge in all the things wrong with this world. It was like not scratching an itch.

I know I changed my futre by changing what I was focusing on.

Hi everyone!!!!

I've enjoyed reading this thread because it's very much a part of my beliefs to manifest our lives.

Do you guys know that these beliefs are core teachings in the church of religious science? You can find centers all over the world...usually called The Center for positive living!!!

I however, have yet to see The Secret!!! I can't wait!!!

Ok, so I totally "got it" today. It's quite a time lately with ds and the terrific 2's. He's testing boundries. I gave him the boundries today while I got myself back together. WHile I did I just started picturing life how I WANT it to be. I saw it, all of us, the whole family, where we WANT to be. I could even feel the energy change in my body. I started saying it over and over again in my mind. I was like a different person!

I've been using a Loise Hay book and that's what really helps. It's all in THIS MOMENT! THIS MOMENT IS THE ONLY MOMENT THERE IS. IT IS ALL HAPPENING IN THIS MOMENT!

Right on!
post #27 of 2914
Which Louise Hays book are you reading??? I enjoy her books as well.
Lately i have been feeling that I am exactly where I want to be. What a good feeling this is however I better find some new goals as I wouldn't want to get stale!

Did you know Louise Hays is a Religious Science Minister/Practitioner?

Yes, I'm aware of the tenents of religious science or Science of Mind are completely in alignment with The Secret. I think that is why I liked it so much. It is something I understand and respect so much.


and by the way.... just so people know. Religious Science and Science of Mind are not Scientology. gosh, no.

When I have told people that I went to a great Religious Science lecture they repeat back to me, "oh, I didn't know you were into scientology?!!!" Ah, no... they are not anything the same. sigh.

Right now I'm reading You Can Heal Your Life. I'm actually using all her affirmations more than reading the book. It's like I need to take all the knowldege inside my head right now and put it into action to make change. Now is the time for that. I'm sure of it. I was checking out HayHouseRadio.com. They have huge archives of radio shows done by the authors they publish that deal with positive thoughts and creating the life you want. It's kinda hard to get the computer when ds is awake though so I've yet to find time to listen to much but it's good to know its there.

The main thing I'm working on right now is weight loss. It's such an enourmous issue as I'm 38 years old and have never been thin or even considered a normal weight. There is so much pre-programming going on inside my head and I'm just trying to let is just wash away. I can think of every diet book I've read or tried and how nothing has worked so I'm convinced it's my programming and I'm changing it. There is another thread that's come up here lately about multiple dimentions and refining of energy switching from indigo to crystal aura's etc... There was a link to a great website that talked about the changes your body goes through when it de-toxes to let the new energy come through and I have so many of those symptoms. I've been a light worker for so many years that I know the things I choose to eat have to do with helping my body process energy. I think that is a huge key for me to use to unlock the weight issue. When I'm working hard at something in a light worker capacity I eat simple carbs. My guides have always explained this to me but I think the whole anti-simple carb media outhere had talked more loudly and has been easier to believe. I'm a light worker before a slave to the media though. If I realize what I am putting in my body by true messages from my body is exactly right for it regardless of what I read and have been led to believe I will be set free.

My son is amazing. MANY detox symptoms started when I was pregnant with him. I developed a HUGE spare tire which is still here and I though he was just jammed upagainst my ribs. He was actually down in position most of the time! I am now realizing it's de-tox of the solar plexus and all the emotions. As an empath that tends to be a lot! I'm working for him now, not me or anything else. I decided that I'm no longer on my road less traveled but on his to support him in his work here. Going from warrior to peace maker is a huge change. It's like letting go of all those huge muscles and developing more gentle ones.

I think it's amazing how the law of attraction works and what we ask for. Some of the things that I want are very materialistic. I don't want me or my husband to ever have to work again. I really don't. I believe it's possible to get that kind of money from somewhere. We can get a house and move back to the states and all that. Good schools for Lukas are easy to find and get him into. I've always gotten the message from my guides that the big money would eventually come when we need it and not to worry about 401K's and the like. We have moved a lot because we simply needed to be certain places to do God's work. We've spent a lot of money but we've always had it and more than enough. I read about saving for the future but I know that is not our path. I used to think it was because we simply wouldn't live that long but with DS showing up unexpectedly that has certainly changed.

When it comes to the true desires of my heart I realize there is more too it. I'm a healer by spiritual gift. I want to actually start using it and honing the skill. That's really involoved. I want to heal sick people. I know I can. I know my time has not yet come but I'm going though what I need to get there. I read the Louise Hay is a Religious Science practitioner and I've read about it in Doreen Virtue books as well. It's intrigues me very much. I believe that healing happens like that. Miracles happen. It's just an interesting journey to see what it takes to make a miracle materialize sometimes. I'm reading about Reiki as well right now. I think it's something I need to learn but since I've yet to find an english speaking Reiki healing circle in Dusseldorf or a class for that matter that time has also not come. I believe I'm destined to take it farther than that though. I have no idea what that means.

The Secret and the law of attraction has been here for a while. As the movie said only 4% of the population has been able to acutally use it so far but think of all of us who are now finding it. Think about the Harry Potter phenomenon - they do magic based on the power of thought! That is being programmed into everyone who reads the books. We can do magic even if we don't have a wand! It is like a "secret" society. I think we who are getting it now are going to be able to start manifesting very quickly building on the evergy of that 4% and soon more and more people will be able to manifest even more good in the world. We are still trailblazers now doing this but it is getting easier and we are actually talking about it right here! There is so much power involved with everyone who reads or posts in this thread. It's a seed and it's planted into the energy of universal consciousness as such. Let's look back in 10 years and see what's become of it.

I wanted to add that I think it seemed like it was important to avoid being in a state of *want*. Feel as if you already have what it is you are desiring, otherwise, you will remain stuck in the state of wanting. Feel the emotions of being thin/peaceful/calm/wealthy, etc...

Yes?
post #32 of 2914
Wow. I watched this after coming across this link and feel like I've been bumping around the edges of this for a couple of years now.

It's true, thoughts are things.

Vicitoria,

If you can pick up some books by Wayne Dyer I think you will find that his message is in total synch with The Secret and everything you are processing.

I was listening to one of his books on tape a couple weeks ago (after I watched The Secret) and found it a perfect complement. But in that tape he said something like weighloss is not about too much food or too little exercise or the other things we associate with weight..he said it was simple and I'm paraphrasing here.... "if you want to lose weight don't go on a diet..simply change your mind. Start living your life as a Thin person. Every choice you make from that point will indeed support your thinness. If you are heavy it is not because you overeat.. it is because you don't see yourself as a thin person. Make the switch in your mind and the body will follow."

Basically something like that. I found that quite interesting and in total agreement with The Secret... it is all the same umbrella.. "I think therefore I am." Descartes lives.

anyway, pick up a couple of his books..go for the ones that were published after 2002. I find those have a different message than his earlier ones. we are evolving and these seem more apropros.

Cool Tracy!!...good advice. That's how I've been living my life for the last few years. I manifested a van 4 years ago...i explored every avenue of income without any luck. I looked and looked at vans...my dh thought I was crazy. I started taking vans for test drive. I didn't have a dime. When I found the van I wanted I drove around in it all day. I tryed to get financing through the dealership and that fell through. I took all my friends to see my new van while it sat in the dealership parking lot that night. dh was just shaking his head at me. The very next day a huge check came in the mail that I was totally not expecting(it was a child support back-payment from years ago) and with that money I was able to purchase the van!
... and a house with the most beautiful yard last year.
i have an abundance of friends because I believe in the goodness of people so that is what I attract!!
and hourly i express to the Universe how grateful I am.

Thanks! How funny! I was just going to reccoment the Louise Hay book You Can Heal Your Life to anyone having a problem putting The Secret into action. She says the same thing about weight. It's the same thing my guides have been telling me but now I FINALLY understand it! That's one for the Gratitude Thread! WHOO HOO!

well, the hole butt thing is a person thing between me and dh calling each other poop heads kinda goofy :-)

The other part - which I'm sure is what you wanted to know - I get kinda sick of reading on the boards about who said this or that and how we should make our decisions based on it. For example, my son watches video's all day. It's best for him to have it in the background while he plays. It's like saying my under two year old is going to grow into an idot because of an article or one child is going to be better because they followed it. We have to make our own decisions based on instinct and what we think is right in the situation. It does go along with the secret though. We create our own realities based on what we thing and believe. If I read something and believe it to be true it will be my reality. I vax. I know it's right. I didn't circ. I know it's right. There is a lot of information out there. We read until we find what we need to hear and it's usually in line with our personal truth. I need to remind myself of that. I used to have "all is of God, all is good" in my sig. it was the same concept. NOTHING is BAD! It's negative thought and it effects everything. If we believe chocolate is "bad" except in moderation, how much is ok? Essentially we already said it was bad. It can't be both. It shows how far negativity can go and we don't realize it.
post #38 of 2914
YES!!!!!

I totally agree!!!

I kind of thought you were going there with that sig. and I was hoping for the answer you gave!!!

Thankyou...thankyou.

This is SO cool!! I love reading about this stuff. Right now I'm reading Eckhart Tolle's latest book (I can't remember the title.....) and I'm realizing A LOT about the roles that I'm assigning to myself that just make my ego that much bigger.

This stuff is hard in the sense that it isn't enough to just say the words....you have to really feel it in your soul and make the changes in your thoughts and behavior. It's slow-going for me, but I can definitely see some changes for the better. The hardest part for me is staying away from gossip. : And stories of hardship for other people. : Unfortunately, the emotional response I have from those stories is "I'm doing better than they are....I'm okay." I know I'll get there eventually.....

I've heard that there's going to be some stuff going down later this year to prepare for the next stage, so I've been mentally preparing for that (getting our ducks in a row).

One thing that's helped me A LOT at work is a mantra that came to me one day while driving to work - Approach everything you do with joy and love. : I work as a bank teller and was finding myself getting really jaded and pi$$ed off with rude people and I was going down that road myself. NOT where I wanted to be. This saying has really made a difference in my attitude. Not only am I more pleasant and helpful....so is everyone else. BIG improvement.

Oh, I wanted to share another fear of mine that I'm finding is holding me back. I was talking with a friend about the stuff coming around later this year. I was joking that my DH tells me that I've always got enough food stockpiled to feed the entire block for 4 months. : Okay...it's not that much, but I do tend to stock up when I see a good deal (I think I was a farm wife in a past life : ). She says to me "That's good because you might need to do that.". That's when the fear kicked in. Oh no.....if I feed the neighborhood, will there be enough for MY family? This isn't good for anyone - my ability to help others and the people who need the help. I'm working on letting go of this fear right now.....

This is why I love threads like this - they're inspiring and motivating to get back on track and quit taking tangents that aren't making me conscious.

Girlo....

having just read your post you are right in tune (imo) with The Secret... have you watched it yet?

you'll see how it is perfect complement for where you are right now...

as I indicated earlier, my inner astrologer knows things will show up next year but it is not impossible for hints of stuff to possibly manifest at the end of 2006.....but again I don't say it out of fear.. just to inform more...
