The Secret: Outline:

October 16, 2010

Things to do:

  1. The Creative Process (3-step process)
    1. Ask for what you want. (Sit down and write it on a piece of paper. Explain how you want your life to be, in every area!)
    2. Answer (Answer to what you’re asking. The UNIVERSE will do this step for you. “The universe will start to rearrange itself to make it happen for you.” “You don’t need to know how, it will be shown to you, you will attract the way.”)
    3. Receive (You must bring yourself into alignment with what you’re asking for. When you’re in alignment with what you want, you feel wonderful. that’s what Enthusiasm is, that’s what Joy is, that’s what Appreciation is, that’s what that feeling of Passion is.   — But when you are feeling despair, or fear, or anger, those are Strong indicators that you are not, right now, in alignment with what you’re asking for. And so, when you begin to realize that the way you feel is Everything, and when you begin to direct your thoughts based upon how they feel, little by little, you can find the Feeling place of it, and now you are one with it, and now it Must Manifest into your experience.” – Esther Hicks
      1. Bob Doyle “So the law of attraction, the study and practice of the law of attraction, is just figuring out what will help YOU generate the feelings of having it now. Do whatever you have to do to generate the feelings of having it now, and remember them – whatever you can do to do that! – will help you to literally attract it. It could, you wake up and it’s just there, it’s manifest. Or, you might get some inspired idea of some action to take.”
      2. “You certainly shouldn’t be going, ‘well, I could do it this way, but, man, would I hate that.’ Cause you’re not on the right track if that’s the case. Action will sometimes be required, but if you’re really doing it in line with what the universe is trying to deliver, it’s gonna feel joyous, you’re gonna feel so alive, time would just stop, you could do it all day…”
  2. Powerful Processes:
    1. Gratitude
      1. “I’m not just thinking about them and doing some rote routine, but i’m putting it out there and i’m feeling the feelings of gratitude.
      2. “Focus on what you have, that you’re grateful for.”
    2. Visualize – (“When you visualize, then you materialize.”)
      1. “When you’re visualizing, when you’ve got that picture playing out in your mind, Always, and ONLY, dwell upon the End Result.
      2. “It’s the FEELING that creates the attraction, not just the picture or the thought.”
      3. “Well I would say you wanna do this virtually daily. BUT – my disclaimer is this should never be a Chore. What’s REALLY bottomline Importance here to the whole secret is Feeling good, you wanna be exhilarated by this whole process, you wanna be High, Happy, In Tune, as much as possible.”
      4. Albert Einstein “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
      5. Jack Canfield, “Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it. And believe it’s possible for you. And then: Close your eyes, every day for several minutes, and visualize having what you already want, and feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that, and focus on what you’re grateful for already. And really enjoy it. And then go into your day and release it to the universe, and trust that the universe will figure out how to manifest it.”
      6. W. Clement Stone, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive, it can achieve.”
      7. ~ Visualize goals, as if they’re already achieved.

~~~ And when you turn that fantasy into a fact, you’re in the position to build bigger and better fantasies. And That My Friend, is The Creative Process.~~~

Problems to avoid:

  • Don’t do what “most people do” – Don’t think about what you DONT want..

Great quotes:

  • Thoughts – Become – Things.
  • Esther Hicks “This is a universe that is based upon attraction. Everything is about attraction.”
  • “When you focus on something with a lot of passion, it makes it happen even faster.”
  • Dr. Michael Beckwith “And so you end up attracting to you the predominant thoughts that you’re holding in your awareness, whether those thoughts are conscious or unconscious. That’s the rub.”
  • Esther Hicks: “You see law of attraction evidenced in your society when you see that the one who speaks most of illness has it… when you see that the one who speaks most of prosperity has it! The law of attraction is evident everywhere around you if you understanding what it is. It has to do with you being a magnet, attracting thought, attracting people, attracting events, attracting lifestyle… Indeed everything that you bring into your experience, you bring because of this powerful law of attraction.”
  • Dr. Michael Beckwith: “It has been proven now scientifically that an affirmative is hundreds of times more powerful than a negative thought. [So that eliminates a degree of worry right there.”
  • Esther Hicks “We do not encourage that you try to monitor your thoughts. That will sort of make you crazy. There are so many thoughts coming to you from so many different directions about so many different subjects. That’s where your emotional guidance system comes in. Your emotions – your emotional guidance system – is what helps you to understand what your thinking.”
  • “… There are only two emotions from our perspective. One feels good and one feels bad. You call them all sorts of different things, but essentially all of those negative emotions, whether you call it guilt, or anger, or frustration all feel much the same. They do not feel good. And all of those guidance saying, ‘That which you are thinking about right now is not in line with what you are really wanting.'” … “The one that feels good, that feeling of hope, or happiness, or love, that good feeling – that positive emotion – is guidance saying, ‘That which you are thinking right now is in alignment with what you are wanting.'”
  • “The better you feel, the more in alignment you are. The worse you feel, the more out of alignment you are.”
  • “Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what is in the process of becoming.”
  • “What you think and what you feel and what manifests is always a match. Every single time. No exception.”
  • “And when you begin to get the hang of this, when you begin to guide your thoughts based upon the way they feel, and you begin to notice the correlation between what you’re feeling and thinking and what’s coming back to you, before you know it, you will know that you are the creator of your own reality, and those who are watching from a distance will stand in amazement at the perfect life you live.” -Brilliant. Just, Brilliant~
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.”
  • “And I’m trying to point out that whatever your circumstances right now, that is only your current reality. And current reality will begin to change as a result of watching this and beginning to use the secret.”
  • On Wealth: “Wealth is a mind set. It’s all about how you think.”
  • Marci Shimoff on happiness: “Many people in Western culture are striving for success. They want to have a big home, they want their business to work, they want all of these things. But what I found in my research is that having those things certainly doesn’t guarantee what we really want, which is happiness. And that’s when all those outer things come. They don’t come from going after them first to get happiness. It’s backwards. You go for the sense of inner joy, of inner peace, of inner vision first.And then all the other things from the outside appear.

On Relationships:

  • As you love yourself, you’ll love others.
  • “You must orient yourself to the best part of those people around you.”
  • “If they are in an attitude that doesn’t match the attitude that you have about them
  • “If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good.”

On Health:

  • Esther Hicks “There is only a stream of well-being that flows you know… It is a stream of pure positive energy, and the universe, all the we know, is abundant with only that. This is a world that is based up well-being, and well-being dramatically abounds. And when you are allowing that stream to flow in its fullness, you feel very very good. And when you are pinching it off a bit, you feel not so good. There is only a stream of good and well-being which you are allowing or not. And your magnificent emotions are telling you what the mix is, how you’re doing in your allowing or resisting in this connection.”
  • “The immune system is made to heal itself.” “Disease cannot live in a body that’s in a healthy emotional state.” “In fact, literally, parts of our body are replaced everyday, others every month, others in a year, but in a few years, with live a ‘whole new body'”.
  • John Hagelin “Happier thoughts lead to, essentially, a healthier biochemistry. A Happier Healthier body. Negative thoughts, stress, has been shown to seriously degrade the body and the functioning of the brain. Because it’s our thoughts and emotions that are continuously reassembling, reorganizing, recreating the body.”
  • Miracle Man, “If I wanted to sum of my life and sum up for people what they can do in life, I would sum it up in 6 words, ‘Man becomes what he thinks about.'”

On the world:

  • “You can’t say no and make it go away. When you shout ‘no!’, the law of attraction is lining that up.”
  • “If you’re anti-hunger, be pro-people having more than enough to eat.”
  • Jack Canfield, “You want to focus on what you want, not you don’t want. It’s okay to notice what you don’t want, because that gives you contrast to say, ‘well this is what I do want’. But the fact is that the more you talk about what you don’t want, or talk about how bad it is, read about all of that all the time, and then say oh how terrible it is, well then you’re creating More of that…”
  • Michael Beckwith: “Learn to become still. And to take your attention away from what you don’t want and all the emotional charge around it, and then place you’re attention on what you wish to experience.”
  • John Demartinini: “I always say when the voice and the vision, on the Inside, become more profound and more clear and loud than the opinions on the outside, you’ve mastered your life.”
  • Esther “You are not here to try to get the world to be just as you want it to be. You are here to create the world around you that you choose, while you allow the world that others choose it be, to exist also.”
  • Esther “Remove your attention from the things that you do not want, while you give you’re undivided attention to the things you do want.”

On you:

  • I am not solid. I am energy.
  • “You’re an energy field, operating in a larger energy field.”
  • “You are source energy. You are eternal beings. You are god force. you are that which you call god.”
  • Jack Canfield “The real what is what are you going to do now? What do you choose now? Because you can either keep focusing on that, or you can focus on what you want. And when people start focusing on what they want, what they don’t want falls away. And that part expands. And the other disappears.
  • “Whether you think you can or you can’t, either way you’re right.”

On life:

  • Jack Canfield: “So I want to constantly put myself in that state [of joy]. And when I do that, then all I have to do is have the intention of what I want, and what I want manifest.”
  • John Hagelin: “So inner happiness, is the fuel of success.”
  • Joseph Campbell: “Follow your bliss. And the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”
  • “You are here by your powerful and deliberate wanting to be here. Go forth, giving thought to what you are wanting, attracting life experience to help you decide what you want, and once you have decided giving thought only unto that. Most of your time will be spent collecting data, data that will help you decide what it is you want. But your real work is to decide what you want, and then to focus upon it. For it is through focusing upon what you want that you will attract it. That is the process of creating.”
  • Beckwith: “I believe that you’re great – that there’s something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, there’s something that is within you – this power within you that’s greater than the world – it will begin to emerge. It will take over your Life. It will feed you, it will clothe you, it will guide you, protect you, direct you, Sustain your very existence if you let it. Now That is what I Know, For Sure.”
  • “Feel Good.”
  • Esther “Be easy with this. Have fun with it. There is nothing you are supposed to do. Only that which you want to do.”

On ‘Extra’:

  • “When you’re in a positive vibration, the only thing you can attract into your life, are things that are in harmony with you – Positive Things.”
  • “Mind is movement. And body is the manifestation of that movement.”

Great Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes: (and how he relates to The Secret)

-A man is what he thinks about all day long.

-Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.

-All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.

-All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

-Always do what you are afraid to do.

-Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.

-Beauty is an outward gift, which is seldom despised, except by those to whom it has been refused.

-Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.

the Secret quotes:

-The simplest way for me to look at the law of attraction is if i think of MYSELF as a magnet, and I know that a magnet will attract to it.

Hm.. at first blush, it seems like a very complicated question that deserves a very complicated answer…

But no need to fret, because the answer to that question is very apparent to us all.

The meaning of life?

That’s easy.

The meaning of life is to live.

If you like to live by questioning your existence? Then you are fulfilling you meaning of life, just by living, and doing what you want to do.

If you like to live in your role in politics, or as a biologist or whatever. Whatever it is, as long as you are alive – living – you are fulfilling your prophecy.

Living… is the meaning of life.

It is the ultimate purpose of it all, that all that has lived, has lived, and all that has died, has stopped living. That’s about the most complicated explanation I can give for such a simple answer.

So

My dad just told me I had a “nightmare” this morning. He noticed when he heard me yelling and held one arm and leg up to the railings under the top bunk, and when he came into my room with maui.

Weird thing – I didn’t know I had a nightmare, more or less had nightmares in generally. When I woke up this morning, I woke up with not a memory of a single thing. And if I did have nightmares, I wouldn’t know, cause, like this morning, it seems I apparently don’t have a conscious memory of them at all…

I’m only human…
