From the Law of Attraction to knowing who you really are, The Secret takes you on a journey that demonstrates that if you’re letting outside circumstances stop you from moving toward the life you want, you are making a big mistake.
I say that because I KNOW you can create the life you want. And you can do it regardless of your current or past circumstances or what other people want or expect you to be, do, or have.
I know because, in the 1960s, I changed my life dramatically.
At the time, I owed more money than I earned, and I was an unhealthy and unhappy guy.
However, a year later, I had multiplied my income by more than 40 times. And a couple of years after that, I was a healthy and happy millionaire.
Now, if I can do it, and millions of people around the world can do it, you can do it too.
However, there’s something I want you to know before we continue…
Before my life started to shift, my mentor asked me to suspend my disbelief. Today, I’m asking you to do the same.
This secret changes every aspect of life
The Universe wants you and me to have an abundant life, and it is always supporting us in making this a reality.
However, we must do our part. To create the life we desire, we must live in harmony with Universal Laws, such as thinking from the inside out.
You see, all creation starts on the inside. That includes the things and experiences that show in our lives. We create our life circumstances in our mind, in our imagination, before they become our reality.
However, most people either don’t understand this, or they simply don’t use it to their advantage. Instead of thinking about what they want until it reshapes their future, they focus on their current circumstances, such as the amount of money in their bank account. As a result, the amount of money in their account doesn’t change much.
Even though that’s a common mistake, here’s how you can correct it quickly.
Stop fighting your existing reality
If you’re serious about creating the life you want, the fastest way to do it is to wipe the slate clean.
Start by sitting down and letting your imagination flow about how you really want to live. Then, write out exactly what you want.
List all the good things that will allow you to enjoy life to a far greater degree. Write about the relationships, amount of money, health, career or business, house, car, philanthropic activities, etc., that you want.
Then, read your list or simply think about what you desire every morning, every night, and as many times during the day as you can. Then, instead of continuing along your current course, you actually begin moving toward the life you want and bringing it toward you.
This happens because thoughts are a potent creative force. All the great leaders all down through history have been in unanimous agreement that we become what we think about.
Concentrating your thinking is like taking a river that’s twisting and turning and meandering all over the countryside, and putting it into a straight, smooth channel.
But here’s the problem…
Our current educational system does not teach us how to think correctly.
So, if you don’t learn how to think on your own, there’s a good chance you’re going to bounce around life like a cork in the ocean. You’ll be controlled by what’s around you instead of taking the reins and determining where you are and where you’re going next.
Even though it won’t happen by accident, thinking can be taught just the same as typing or playing the piano.
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of
You see, thought waves are cosmic waves that penetrate all time and space. They take formless energy and create a form—the image of what we are thinking about.
But holding the image of what you want in your conscious mind does not affect your life. However, if you turn that image over to your subconscious mind, magical things start to happen.
That’s because the image that’s in your subconscious mind is what alters your vibration and that vibration expresses itself through your body in action. Every vibration sets up an attraction, and every action sets up an equal and opposite re-action.
Here’s another way to look at how we become what we think about…
The secret explained
I learned the power of real thinking from the magnificent book Think and Grow Rich. But you see, you can’t just think and grow rich. You’ve got to do the right things with those thoughts.
You see, even if you manage to think about what you want several times a day, there are other steps you have to take to get in harmony with your desires.
Basically, there’s a four-step process to attracting the things you want. You initiate the process by taking the first two steps. The last two steps are automatic and universal responses to steps 1 and 2:
1. Build the idea and the image of what you want.
Many people believe conscious thinking has no power over subconscious processes. However, it is by conscious, repetitious thought that the automatic, habitual patterns of the subconscious mind can be changed.
Your subconscious mind has no “will” of its own. It works only on the data which you feed it in the form of ideas, beliefs, and interpretations. And it always seeks to give you appropriate feelings and to accomplish the goals that you consciously feed it.
2. Internalize or get emotionally involved with the idea/image you create.
Thoughts that are mixed with feeling or emotion constitute a magnetic force. So to attract what you want, deep feeling and desire must accompany your thoughts.
I suggest that you do what Dr. Maxwell Maltz suggests in Psycho-Cybernetics:
“Picture to yourself what you would like to be and have and assume for the moment that such things are possible. Arouse a deep desire for these things. Become enthusiastic about them. Dwell on them—and keep going over them in your mind. Your present negative beliefs were formed by thought plus feelings. Generate enough emotion or deep feeling, and your new thoughts will cancel them out.”
3. Change your vibration.
When you internalize a thought, it feeds into your subconscious mind, which is your emotional mind, and it dictates the vibration that your body moves into.
When we talk about the vibration, we’re talking about our emotional state or how we feel. That feeling or vibration is automatically expressed in action, including attracting the thoughts that build the ideas that will take you to where you want to go, the life you want to live.
4. Attract what you are in harmony with.
Your action sets up a reaction, and you can only attract the energy that is in harmonious vibration with you.
Since your mind and body function on frequencies, just like a radio, they can only receive from the frequency they are operating on. And, in this case, it’s the frequency of your desire.
So, you see, you don’t attract what you want. Wants are in your conscious mind. You attract what you are in harmony with, what you ARE. And you ARE the thoughts that become fixed in your subconscious mind.
That’s how the Law of Attraction works. Anyone can do it. If you focus on the first two steps, the rest will happen in accordance with universal laws.
I encourage you to reread this and play with these ideas for a while. I guarantee it will make a tremendous difference in your life.
The Universe is ready to bless you
I love this concept of the power of real thinking. And I love teaching it.
When my life changed so dramatically, it took me nine years to figure out what had happened. At the end of those nine years, I was crystal clear on what I had done…
I had built new ideas in my mind, and then I got emotionally involved with those ideas, I internalized them, and the rest took care of itself.
This is what the Proctor Gallagher Institute is all about. We teach people how to use the power of their mind in the right way, so they can live the life they truly want to live. There’s really no secret to it.
So, as I close, remember these key points:
1. Thought waves are cosmic waves that penetrate all time and space.
2. The thoughts you internalize dictate your body’s vibration.
3. And your vibration controls what you attract into your life. You can only attract the things you’re in harmony with.
Look at it this way…
You’ll never get FM music on an AM radio. If you want FM music, you’ve got to rev it up so you can move to a higher frequency. This process works exactly the same in your day-to-day life.
