There had been talk about getting a lending circle going, so that copies could be circulated and you could "try before you buy." Has anyone done this?

I have been using the Secret and am witnessing things happening in my life. I struggle with letting go of negative thoughts and only recently became aware of how much negative thinking I engage in. No wonder I am so stressed but with the changes I am making, I feel so much better.

Has anyone read the book? I watched the preview, but to me it looked cheesy and too much like a fictional movie... I don't want to watch it if it reminds me of a hollywood story.
If anyone has read the book, can you tell me if it is less... dramatic?
I'm thinking of gettign the audiobook for dh for Christmas (he loved motivational audiobooks), but he won't take it seriously if it seems too dramatic and/or spiritual.

It's only the first couple minutes that are like that. The rest of it is interviews with inspirational speakers (basically) with some visuals thrown in here and there. So don't worry about the initial cheese... it's just something to draw in the masses IMO.

haven't read the book, but i just wanted to say that it's only really the first few minutes of the movie that are like the preview. the rest of the film is probably 90% views of the people who are talking about the secret, with a few non-dramatic scenes of actors manifesting their thoughts. see if you can find some clips on youtube...here's one: http://youtube.com/watch?v=L5yeHR3RUKo

eta: wow, posted at the same time!

Yeah, it seemed to me like they were going for Da Vinci Codesque drama to pull you in.

But the movie isn't like that. It's really good.

That's the perfect way to describe it! And yeah, it's completely irrelevant to the movie. Maybe the ppl working on it wanted to have some fun with technology and this was their way to experiment and gain a little extra joy from the project.

I actually thought some parts were cheesy. The random voice whispering the famous quotes was cheesy! One night, dh just blurted out one of the quotes ("Take the first step...") in a whisper and I had the biggest laughing fit.
BUT, I absolutely love the movie; the cheesiness just adds to it, imo!!

What am I doing wrong?

I watched The Secret recently and decided to go ahead and manifest financial stability in my life. I have been trying very very hard to do it the way it is described in the movie. I was feeling pretty good about it, too.

Then we got a call from the bank this morning telling us that we are 300 dollars overdrawn. I am VERY careful when I balance the checkbook. But this time I overlooked 2 checks and this is what happened. We haven't bought anything at all that wasn't absolutely necessary~ paid the mortgage, bought about $100 worth of food, paid a couple bills I couldn't let go longer. A couple things bounced, and at 36 dollars a pop, it adds up pretty quickly.

We have no way to cover this, we have no food, and no money until next paycheck, which is in 10 days.

Is this like homeopathy and I'm seeing an initial aggravation of symptoms? (sorry~ probly no one gets that)

Seriously. I must be must be doing it totally wrong. Any pointers?

OK, so as soon as I was done typing that post, I got a call from my friend. There is a 95% chance she has lymphoma. A reminder that there is so much more than money to be grateful for. <sigh>

Back to feeling gratitude...........

If you watch it...they say that whatever happens to you today is a product of what you've manifested in the past. Perhaps being overdrawn was the attracting of tha tfrom times gone by. Your new manifestations will appear with time, especially if you truly believe it will.

And yes, I know what you meant about the homeopathy!!!

Look what I found! Barefoot mama, I hope this can help you. Esther Hicks has a new radio show on Hayhouse radio. It's free!

http://www.hayhouseradio.com/show_de...episode_type=0

Quote:
Through Esther Hicks, the non-physical consciousness Abraham addresses an audience in Los Angeles, California in this live lecture. Abraham teaches you how to remain joyful with your present circumstances even if your true desires haven’t manifested yet. Abraham also answers questions about finding steady work in an unsteady field, earning money, the properties of the nonphysical world, and the energetic underpinning of disease.

I couldn't get chapter 2 to work either. But I just found another link that I posted on another thread.
(I've got the Esther Hicks version on DVD but it's nice to be able to see it on the computer when my family is using the DVD player. )


On Google video, the entire movie is listed as "o segredo". It's got subtitles (Portugese?) but you hear it in English just as if you were watching the regular download. It's the Esther Hicks version, not the new extended version. Some of the background music is slightly different in some places, but it's an intact version of the movie.

carolynrosa...did you end up watching it? i honestly think those silly 1950'sMGM movie moments are so small that they didn't get in the way of the other stuff... curious if you saw it? kind of hoping you did and hoping you enjoyed it.

Yes, it is exactly like homeopathy. imo. i'm sorry about the financial bump but I want to say I'm thrilled to hear how you shifted the energy after you got the call from your friend.

curiously a family member was diagnosed with lymphoma (female) late 30's.. she got the dx the week before thanksgiving. she is doing well with the chemo and the family is feeling optimistic. I wish the same for your friend!
(PS-I sent her somethng from Honeybaked, BFM--thought you would be humored)

Thank you so much for revealing the secret. I watched it on Google Video and am now going to order the DVD if there is one for region 2. I could not find that information on the web site. Does anyone know it here?

I have been doing this for three days now and I can feel the change in my relationships with dc and dh. I have spent time visualizing the party I am going to have after I finish my studies. Now I only need to let the universe show me how I am going to get the thesis done.

Hamas,
I don't know what region 2 means. what is it?

by the way, if you need a little boost....this a good link

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Awv5voHtPMI

it is a good daily place to go.

can you visit the SPIRITUALITY forum yet? I think you might have to be at MDC at least 6 months so it might not be avaible yet.. but we have some great links to other places that are helpful.

Region 2 dvd is for european dvd players.

I need to be registered for 60+ days and write 50+ posts in order to gain access to the spirituality forum. I'm not a very good writer so that might take time but I'm working on it.

Thanks for that link, too!
