The Law Of Attraction.

About a year ago, a friend recommended that I read, "The Secret." I had never heard of this book but she seemed so enthusiastic that the next time I was in the book shop I purchased this book even though the price made me raise my eyebrows. 

That night I sat and read, and read... and read. I'm sure many of you have heard of this book or it's teachings  or watched the documentary. At the time that I started reading I was suffering badly with my Emetophobia and my anxiety. This book gave me some hope. 

For those of you that haven't heard of it, the concept is simple. It is based on the law of attraction. Our thoughts become our reality.


The Secret book reveals how you can change every aspect of your life. You can turn any weakness or suffering into strength, power, unlimited abundance, health and joy.


Everything is possible, nothing is impossible. There are no limits. Whatever you can dream of can be yours, when you use The Secret.



The easiest way I have come to think about this and explain it to people is that every thing that we think or feel or talk about is being heard by the universe and responded to. If we are constantly worrying about our mounting debt and un-paid bills then that is what the universe is working with, so all we are going to get is mounting debt and un-paid bills. 

After I had finished the book I lent it to my Sister, who at the time was struggling with fertility issues. As much as I tried to keep "The Secret" in the forefront of my mind throughout my daily life, over time I let those worries creep back in and settle down in my thoughts. "We'll never pay our debts off" "I'll never be free from my anxiety" "I'm not a good enough wife, mother or woman".. The list goes on.. 

I forgot all about the Law Of Attraction and how my thoughts today were creating my tomorrow. Fast forward to last weekend. I was feeling down so I was browsing through Netflix trying to find something funny to cheer myself up. I've never looked on their documentary list before so I decided to see what was about. One of the first programs that came up was "The Secret".. Why not I thought? Within minutes of watching it I remembered why I loved the book so much and how much the teachings made sense to me. Anthony was watching it with me and I honestly thought he was going to start laughing and telling me about what a load of rubbish it was. Instead, he watched with me and actually agreed that he could see some truth in it.  I was literally left open mouthed.. Anthony is a very black and white guy. He likes facts. He likes things that can be proved beyond a shadow of a doubt. 

The past few days I have really tried to keep the teachings in my head. As soon as I start to think a negative thought I stop myself. I try and turn it into a positive one. I tried to remember to be grateful for all that I do have. 

Yes my house is tiny and we are bursting at the seams, especially as we are about to add another little person.. But I have a house. I have shelter and a place to call home. 
So I cannot afford gourmet food and steak every night. I cannot afford to eat out in restaurants but I have food in my cupboards and every night I am able to make a meal for my family. 
Yes I am tired ALL the time, my hands and feet are swollen by the end of the day but I am carrying a beautiful baby girl who will be here in no time at all. 



"The life of your dreams has always been closer to you than you realized, because The Power - to have everything good in life - is inside you."




I would love to hear from you if you've read this book or watched the documentary. What were your thoughts?
