The Secret---- anyone seen it? - Page 3

post #41 of 2914
What about Chemistry?

I mean, I've put it on my Treasure Map this year, I really deeply want to understand Chem (and Calc soon,) the way I understand language and Biology.

I'm pretty sure my unbelief and/or insecurity in this area is what's hindering me (as opposed to me not really truely not being able to understand Chem.)

And this is all nothing but pure thought through and through.

I'm trying to teach myself the basic stuff so I can CLEP 103 and go straight to 104 and O-chem.

But the mere mention of O-chem puts a fight or flight response.

That's the enemy, right, everyone, thinking you can't.

It's like in the Bible when Jesus tells Peter to get out of the boat and walk on water with Him. At first, Peter walks on the water with no trouble, but he starts doubting...and sinking.

I really must get the DVD (I don't want to pay to watch the movie and not have it for DH to see, too.)

It sounds like Louise Hay could be for you. Your mantra being:

"I am willing to release the need to have a block in Chemistry."

But before that:

"I am willing to release the need to be unworthy.

I am worthy of the very best in life, and I now lovingly allow myslelf to accept it.

As I spend a few days doing this affirmation over and over, my outer effect pattern of procrastination will automatically begin to fade.

As I internally create a pattern of self worth, then I no longer have the need to delay my good."

The whole philosophy is based on our feeling and belief that we are unworthy to have what it is we want. We put up our own roadblocks and create a "need" for things to go wrong or not the way we want them.

You may want to check it out of the library or go to borders for a coffee and read a bit.

In the health food store yesterday I saw a mag with a cover article on it "Step into an Enchanted Universe: The Serious Case for Astrology"; interest piqued I bought it. The article is about this guy Richard Tarnas, who just compelted a very extensive, quasi-scientific study on astrology and how planetary allignments pan out across history. He believes that there really is a significiant enough synchonicity of events that occur, across time, and particular alignments.

I found this of particular interest, and thought back to the above quote by Tracy, when I read it. Scary stuff, and really enough incentive to get my ducks in a row before it gets rough. Please remember I have to sum this up to avoid copy right issues:

Quote:
...Saturn-Pluto embodies radical contraction. These alignments, lasting three to four years, are related to major historical crises. Such periods are often viewed as the end of an era or the "end of innocence," a time when nations seemed compelled to go to war........

Its positive potentional includes a display of personal and collective determination, moral courage and sacrifice, and the forging of new structures in the face of collapse......

Saturn-Pluto came into almost exact alignment on September 11, 2001, and again with the eruption of WW I in August of 1914, during the 20th's century first conjunction of Saturn and Pluto . This was followd by an occupation of the same planets from 1930 -1933 a period of economic crisis that saw the rise of fascism in Europe, the militarism in Japan, and totalitarianism under STalin - culminating with Hitler's invasion of Poland in September 1939 as Pluto and Saturn came into perfect alignment. This cyclical pattern of related events continued in the 20th century with the unfolding of the Cold WAr in 1946-48.

A similar alignement is coming up in 2008-2011, with Uranus joinging the Saturn Pluto archetypal complex. This triple aligment last occurred during the social, political and economic upheavel of 1923-1933."
Scary stuff, but on a brighter note it reminds me of the Mayan studies which say there will be a great rebirth in 2012. Which is right after this period and totally in synch with this statement:

goodcents,
yep... pluto's transit into cap on its own is no day in the country.... but then you add the other out planet aspects and it is a doozey... yeah, a number astrologers have brought up the end of the mayan calendar.....
it is kind of hard for me to discuss the astro of that period because it is kind of scary stuff..and I do believe in The Secret so I want to stay positive especially with you guys here on this thread. And remember, mankind did survive the 20's and 30's.... and we'll get through this one too. But my overall feeling is that if we keep the practice of The Secret and believe me it is hard on some days (at least for me) but if we do...we should alll find ourselves making through the troubled times okay. Our little boat will be okay. Hold on to that image.

I watched the Secret a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was AWESOME! But I'm already forgetting and I think I need to buy the DVD.
Has anyone heard of Summer McStravick and her Flowdreaming? It's the same theory as what's in the secret. She has a show on lime radio where she guides you through visualizations, but I've only been able to catch her show a couple of times. I was thinking of buying some of her cd's to do before I go to bed at night. Anyone tried that?

So....I registered for The Secret movie, but I haven't watched it yet. I don't know anyone who has it and I'm reluctant to pay for it. I'm debating on buying the DVD for the same reason 3timesamama wants to. Is it REALLY worth the $4.95 to watch it online....or the $30 for the disc? Will the synopsis I've gleaned from reading this thread be enough to get the message?

Also.....what sorts of things are people doing to get ready for 2008? I don't know if this is right thread, or if a separate thread should be made.....I'm just curious.
A friend of mine, who's spiritually connected, told me to get our money out of the banks/financial system altogether and start a mattress fund. Ummmm....yikes!! I WORK for a bank and it'll be pretty much impossible to convince DH to cancel our long-term investments and hide the money in the bed, KWIM? Plus....I can't imagine that things are going to be SO dire that we'll lose everything we've invested for our retirement. We have it all spread out pretty well.
She also told us to stock up on food/water (or activated charcoal to filter), powdered milk for Alex, etc. This is where the fear-provoking comment was made. :

As for getting our own ducks in a row, we've got some savings and I've got some cash stashed at home. We're also whittling down our debt. It isn't much total - under $5000 - but it should still be gone. We've also got our expenses down so that if we HAD to, we could ditch some of the money going out every month - satellite, cell phones, DSL, Paul's golf games :, etc. Then, I do have a food/water stash just in case.

Oh, I should also add that I'm working on being more conscious and aware in general. One goal of mine is to start going some yoga and stretches to help calm the voice that's always talking/singing/etc. in my head.

I'm not sure we should break out this conversation quite yet into its own thread... but I will tell you that my other very, very, very intuitive friend and I have discussed that we might buy some gold ingots. We currently have our investments in traditinional fare.. banks, TBills, stocks..etc. But my own sense is that we'll know when to shift....

I just believe that if we are all intuned in a manner similiarly (but not limited to) described in The Secret.. I just feel we will have a pretty good idea when and how to turn right, turn left, jump up...skip over... whatever it takes.... like I said, I am confident we'll get signs in 2007 but as has been pointed out earlier it might show up at the end of 2006.

oh, and I gotta say.. I would go ahead and buy the movie. I have bought several that I am mailing to friends and then once they finish it I'm having them mail it to other friends.. it is a bit of a chain....

you could do similiarly..feels good to share the 'wealth'.

First off, If you purchase the secret for a one time view on line you receive a $5 discount on the DVD.

Just a few more things dealing with astrology....

How did the planets align in the early 90's when the earth changes were predicted? We were stocking up on stuff then too. Bought a Jeep just by instinct, getting together for the good side in case many race wars came down in the states. We raised the energy then and it didn't happen. I'm curious as well because my guides said our new soul group is getting together for ds's work here and we are getting out ducks in a row for him and what the Crystal Children are here to do (OH MY, I'm completely covered in goose bumps) My guide said the time is short to get together and we will be back in the states in what then consider a blink of an eye - something happened with dh at work yesterday and a collegue from his old job just happenned to call and on the same call he talked with his old boss and his job is still available and dh is ready to call and ask for it back. And, there is the money thing - I've always understood that long term investments are not important - for example - we had an inheritence, decided to travel instead of invest and buy a house. We ended up buying a house several years later with nothing down and then rates went way down, people lost a lot of what they gained in the stock market and then everything went back up again, we invested in our house and sold it for a profit - about the size of the inheritence plus got the money back we put into it. I think it may be time to get money stocked up again. I'm concerned as to how far Americans are in debt. Maxed out on credit. Not only credit cards but houses and home equity. The price of real estate went up but so did the debt involved in it. DH and I are the helpful type. We keep thinking about how we will help others with a large sum of money. There are reasons for everything.

Hope this makes sense. It's late here. vic:-)

It is all a bit fuzzy for me now..remembering back then.. but the changes in the 90's were not anything that had me wildly concerned. I knew when Pluto went into Sag it would be a whole completely different turn for the world and it was..but it was not as palpable as the 2008 stuff (imo). I also remember the stuff in the mid 80's but that was an opening. Those aspects were actually called, "harmonic convergence" It was more like planting of seeds. This is more of ..... "get out of the way, there's a tornado coming!' kind of energy.

interesting thoughts, vicitoria.... yeah, I would love to see everyone on this thread be debt free. It was apart of my treasure map for a couple years but it only was manifested this year. :

Again, remaining positive.. those of you who have some debt, put it up there to the universe that you are debt free, and see what spirit sends you.

ok, you all convinced me, i will be watching the secret this weekend!

i am interested in learning more about making a treasure map. how does that work?

thanks

I admit I'm a luddite at heart and always have computer problems, but could someone please explain to me how to actually buy the DVD??? I logged on to the site, subscribed, but couldn't find any place to actually buy it!!

I know it will really resonate with me -- I've been using affirmations and positive thinking for years (It's how I conceived my DD after enduring years of infertility treatments). I'm a big Louise Hay fan as well as all the Seth books.

I'm also interested in the Science of the Mind references. Links, anyone?

I have to admit that when I'm alone in my car (VERY rare occurence!) I still isten to an ancient tape of The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. And I"m not even Christian! It just reminds me of where I need to be mentally and emotionally.

So I would LOVE to see The Secret if I could just figure out the darn website! Thanks!!
post #57 of 2914
Never mind! I guess I was too impatient -- got an e-mail with a link to the shopping site. But then the darn thing wouldn't accept my credit card! Or my husband's! ARGH! Guess I'll just have to visualize my card going through okay tomorrow

what is a treasure map???

I know I have mentioned Treasure Maps and a few other people have brought them up and it has left some of you ...


well here is a thread that explains them:

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=417909

There is one period in the year...about a four day period in either march or April when we build Treasure Maps.... I started in 1996 following the advice of my astrologer Teacher... it was an amazing process and a very productive experience! If you have watched The Secret then you know a bit about it because it is similiar to what the guy who put the picture of the house on the board and then five years later realized he bought that house..... anyway, take a look at the Treasure Map thread to learn more.

I love Science of Mind....I've gone to several churches in my area. It is very much in synch with my spiritual nature. Check 'em out.



I will visualize the card going through too! Let us know if it doesn't....maybe we can figure out a way to share a dvd with you.

charmedbeing, do you have the cd's from the Hicks from a lecture in Boston? My friend said she got that one and thought it was outstanding. I want to order them but when I went to the abraham website I saw that they are on a lecture right now and they haven't emailed me back yet.
