The Secret Law of Attraction is not a new concept, as it has been around for thousands of years, yet it has only become popular and studied over the past few decades. The Secret movie, a 2006 movie that was produced by Prime Time Productions, certainly played a vital role in raising awareness about the Law of Attraction, as it thoroughly explained viewers what the entire concept is about, and how they can use this unwritten law of the Universe in their best interest in order to improve their life quality.
An Overview of The Secret Law Of Attraction
In a nutshell, The Secret movie is presented as a self-help film under the form of a documentary, designed to emphasize on the principle that thoughts and feelings can attract other feelings, experiences as well as events. In other words, what you think, you become – this is the message that The Secret is trying to send to all those who are willing to make a difference in their lives.
The Secret consists of a series of interviews with different people, designed to showcase people’s beliefs and how thinking or saying a certain thing can attract the desired outcome. There is also a censored version of the film as well as a book released on the subject of the Law of Attraction, and some of the most important people in the American media have shown interest in the topic, from Larry King and Ellen DeGeneres to Oprah Winfrey.
This self-help documentary includes a series of lengthy and in-depth interviews with different professionals in fields like psychology, metaphysics, Quantum physics, medicine, personal development, philosophy or theology. These people have offered to share their personal views and experiences on how the Law of Attraction has radically improved their lives, and how it can help others improve theirs.
The Law of Attraction goes back to the 18th century when it was firstly exposed in the New Thought Movement – as a matter of fact, this precise movement serves as the historical basis and the foundation for the ideas that are presented in the movie The Secret. There are tens of books and movies that surround the New Thought Movement, including the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles or Thoughts are Things by Prentice Mulford, the latter being the oldest book of its kind as it was written towards the end of the 19th century.
What Is The Law Of Attraction All About?
If you did not watch The Secret just yet and you want to know a bit about this controversial Law of Attraction that caught everybody’s attention lately, then it is important to say that according to this unwritten law, all your dominant feelings and thoughts will find a way to manifest themselves in your life, and that you will attract into your life whatever it is that you think about.
In other words, if your primary goal is to become famous and wealthy, then if you think about it long enough and if you find a way to project those thoughts and emotions, then the chances are that you will reach your goal before you even realize it. In order for the Law of Attraction to be effective, you must firstly get rid of any and all conflicting intentions. For instance, if you have opposite thoughts or feelings, they will only “cancel” each other.
The Secret Movie
This entire concept according to which “like attracts like” is built around the idea that thoughts can be either positive or negative, and they can have either positive or negative outcomes depending on which ones are predominant in your mind. Moreover, the founders of the New Thought Movement (which, as mentioned above, serves as the historical basis for both the modern Law of Attraction and for The Secret movie) strongly believed that thoughts and feelings are made from pure energy, which has the natural tendency to attract energy of the same kind.
The Secret Law of Attraction is still highly controversial and intensely debated these days, as some people claim that negative or positive attitudes can result in corresponding outcomes (the well-known placebo and nocebo effects), and even though there is still no strong scientific basis to support the Law of Attraction or the claims made in the movie The Secret, it has helped millions of people from all around the world, on many different levels.
