A few years ago, the world was astounded with the revelations inside “The Secret, ” a book and movie about using the Law of Attraction to get you what you want. Today, millions of persons are beginning to question if “The Secret” was just hype. Why? Because they tried what it told them to do and they failed to see the outcomes they hoped for. In short, after dedicated application of the Law of Attraction, their lives did not turn out to be better than they were before.
The publishing of “The Secret” book and movie coincided with the advent of “The Great Recession”, so it’s not hard to picture how individuals could blame their failures on that but WAIT!!! Didn’t “The Secret” say that the only thing you were required to do was to harness the power of your thoughts to create anything you ask for? So, was “The Secret” just hype? NO!!! It was just incomplete.
You see, “The Secret” was based on “The Law of Attraction” but it left out the other 11 accompanying laws that go with it and make it work. Taken in concert, all 12 laws are what permit the magic to come about.
The power of the mind to create is vast. In the Bible, it states that God created man “in His image” and if God is the Creator then it must be that man is also possesses the power to create. In short, we were all born with the power to create but few of us have learned the process of creation. That is all about to change.
What are the other 11 laws?
Working with the Law
We have all heard about Norman Vincent Peale’s great book called “The Power of Positive Thinking. ” If we are to practice positive thinking as a means to alter our lives, then it must be that we must, at the same time, train ourselves to guard against negative thoughts.
The Law of Thinking
The mind is extremely potent: Its thoughts can create and they can destroy. We need to conquer our programmed propensity to think negatively for this is the path to a happy life.
Why does the un-trained mind naturally have a tendency to think in negative terms? It has, in the past, been trained negatively by our parents, the media and other acquaintances whom we permit to put negative thoughts inside our subconscious like “With my luck, it will probably rain and ruin the party!” This, instead of envisioning plenty of bright sunshine.
The Law of Supply
The Law of Supply, also known as the Law of Abundance, states that, in fact, there is always plenty for each person. It is our programmed disbelief of the Law of Supply that keeps us from unlocking the door to the treasure house that awaits us.
The Law of Attraction
When you are without resources, it may be hard to conceive of giving to others and yet, you realize the truth of “As ye sow, so shall ye reap. ” It is giving that opens up the path for receiving. You always have something to give, although it may not be financial. How about your time, your labor, your assistance, your kindness or your love?
The Law of Increase
Where you direct your attention or praise causes that particular good to grow. Learn to express gratitude for what you possess and resist the urge to complain about what you believe you don't have.
The Law of Compensation
Redirect your self-image to that of a “wealth-attractor” and project that and only that. Look for, expect, notice and capitalize on everything that comes your way.
The Law of Non-resistance
Discover how to eliminate the stress that stops you. Worrying about something never makes it disappear. Instead of worrying, look for what guides you. Learn how to love everyone, even those who inflict harm. Become a master of your circumstances.
The Law of Forgiveness
Become a boundless fountain of forgiveness. Learn how to overcome anger so that it can’t halt you. Realize what true forgiveness really is. Jettison demons from your past that live in your mind while controlling your thoughts.
The Law of Sacrifice
Learn to welcome pain and employ it as a tool for positive change. Grow or die: Remove stagnation from your thinking process.
The Law of Obedience
Accept what is happening. Follow the natural order of things. Don’t try to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Welcome your barriers as teachers and NEVER panic.
The Law of Success
Learn how to “own” life and refuse to let it “own” you. Banish the fear of failure by keeping your eye on the goal. Learn to exploit so-called “bad news. ”
The twelve laws, taken together as a whole, will teach you so that that life can then show you that your destiny is as boundlessly perfect as you want it to be. There is simply NO OTHER WAY to change your life for the better.
