“The Secret” and the Science of Getting Rich

•May 17, 2008 • 2 Comments

Have you heard of the DVD called “the Secret”? Well it isn’t such a secret anymore. The DVD was released in March 2006 and according to Time Magazine, the DVD has sold 500,000 units within the first 6 months. Today it sells well over 5,000 copies a day! It ranked in Amazon’s Top-5 sellers during Christmas week; and a tie-in hardcover book just entered the Top 10 on the New York Times bestseller list.

The amazing thing about “the Secret” is that it’s popularity has
been almost solely through “word-of-mouth”. It has spread briskly
through new-age bookstores, New Thought churches like Unity and AGape and the
like. It’s even become the topic of group discussion in metaphysical churches,
bookstores and local book clubs set in the homes of millions who just love the
message that the movie has to offer.

So what is the secret to “the Secret’s” success? It’s is a
“transformational movie”, where a person’s view on life and the laws
of life will no longer be the same after watching this movie. In a sense, it has
created the same kind of effect as “the Da Vinci Code” and the 2004
hit cult movie “What the Bleep Do We Know”. The movie has created such
waves that it has already been featured on the many talk shows including the
Ellen DeGeneres show.

At the core of the movie is a central philosophy called “The Law of
Attraction”. In fact, the movie itself was inspired by this very same law
when the producer read a book called “the Science of Getting Rich” by
Wallace D. Wattles. This books was written in 1910!

This philosophy states that we create our reality, both good and bad! The
message is delivered through 24 “teachers” which include prosperity
preachers, chiropractic healers, relationship gurus, life coaches and
motivational speakers — into one clear, cohesive voice. The movie is a
“must watch” for anyone interested in taking charge of their life and
in creating the life of their dreams.

Following on the success of the Secret, 2 of the core teachers – namely Bob
and Jack Canfield have
collaborated to produce a wealth building program called the
Secret Science of Getting Rich Seminar”
. This program is
based on the book that inspired the movie and is set to make history as the
fastest growing personal development program in history. As we speak, the
seminars are filling up via word of mouth because people simply want to learn
how to remain in a positive mindset of prosperity consciousness.

What is the Science of Getting Rich about? Well in the words of Wallace D.
Wattles, “The ownership of money and property comes as a result of doing
things in a certain way. Those who do things in this certain way, whether on
purpose or accidentally, get rich. Those who do not do things in this certain
way, no matter how hard they work or how able they are, remain poor. It is a
natural law that like causes always produce like
. Therefore, any man or woman who learns to do things in
this certain way will infallibly get rich.” The Science of Getting Rich is
all about teaching how to do things in this “certain” way to create

The success of this program is built on several rock solid foundations. These
factors include: the phenomenal success of “the Secret”, the timeless
concepts from the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, the credibility
of successful personal improvement teachers and New Thought leaders of our time,
and the Internet as the distribution medium.

Intend It!

And now we move on to the definition of insanity…for well over a year I’ve been wracking my brain and weary trying to find a solution for a very complex problem, that, at first blush seems incredibly easy to an outsider. I find myself overwhelmed and surrounded by people that “just don’t get it”!

Ironically, this is how we all feel sometimes with our troubles…people just don’t seem to hear us because most of the time they’re just not listening…

You see, my partner suffers from MS….and it is beginning to reach a critical stage…the one that is taking away more than half of my partner’s leg strength. It has rendered our home somewhat useless at this point because there are som very many stairs…so we thought we would move to our rental cottage….and fix that up. The trouble is, it puts us too far away from my parents, who have moved 8 hours to be near us as their caretakers in their retirement years….

The issue is water….

We are lucky…or blessed by the universe enough to live on a lake…that same lake divides our parents from us if we go to the cottage…and puts us too far away from medical attention in the event of an emergency…

Selling the big house has been a proposed solution for a long time…despite the real estate crisis, raw lakefront land here is over a half million $ for just a lot now….and ironically, homes are not going for as much as they are being taxed at, and raw land is at an all time high.

The setting at the cottage is healing for my partner but too remote for modern conveniences….

I was hoping that If I can let go of both properties, you would consider helping me find a place on the “right side” of the lake near our parents and emergency services that would help my partner to heal!

Will You Please Help Me Intend It??

I’ve about driven myself nuts trying to work the numbers and the logistics and I would love to have the universe’s blessing to “let go” and find a third property that would work on all levels for all of the people that touch our lives…

Incidentally, my partner finds sunsets and water very healing from a meditative state…and I would love to come home one day, and say “Honey, Your Wish is My Command”!

I would love to hear your stories about how you were able to Intend Wonderful Things in Your Own Lives!

An Attitude of Gratitude….

Just reflecting on my life and the lives of others who are so strong and remain so positive that they are truly an inspiration to myself and others. There are so many people that manifest good in their lives and always have a smile on their faces despite difficult times.

I’m reminded of a woman named Patti who just recently lost her husband [Lee]….but she is so strong in her faith and in the universe that she has has been nothing but phenomenal since his passing. She has an unwavering “Attitude of Gratitude”.

Several years back, Patti decided to show her gratitude for every person that she meets, and I mean EVERY PERSON!    So, one of the first questions she manages to squeak into a conversation is “when’s your birthday?”. I know that sounds funny, but then, Patti systematically finds out where you live and sends you a birthday card…not just that year, but for the rest of your life. She wants EVERYONE to feel special….especially on their “special day”.

Well….today is my birthday, and so before walking to my mailbox I concentrated on  “expecting checks in the mail”, and I was not disappointed….I opened my mailbox….and there was my tax return check…and like clockwork, a birthday card from Patti…with a message of hope and abundance!

Many people wondered whether or not Patti would lose her faith, or her drive to send birthday cards after the sudden passing of her husband…be she did not. Incidentally, Patti sends out over a thousand birthday cards, each year, out of her own pocket and hand writes each and every one…

I just wanted to say, that I am grateful to all of the “Pattis” out there that have found a unique way to truly make a difference in this world!

It’s the thought that counts…..and thoughts are things….really wonderful things!
