What is “The Secret” Law of Attraction Book? A Manifesting Manifesto?

The Secret is not just a book, but a concept that completely changed my life. I saw the movie version of it when it came out in 2006 and it turned my world upside down – in a good way!

If you’ve never seen or read The Secret, the ideas and concepts may be ones that you’ve never heard of. However, the book is all based on spiritual principles that have been around since the beginning of time.


What is The Secret Law of Attraction Book?

The Secret is a book (and a movie) written by Rhonda Byrne that popularized the idea of the Law of Attraction. The book and movie stars such people as:

  • Bob Proctor
  • Joe Vitale
  • Jack Canfield
  • Michael Beckwith
  • John Assaraf
  • John Demartini
  • Mike Dooley
  • Neale Donald Walsch
  • James Arthur Ray
  • Fred Alan Wolf

And many, many more. In the original movie of The Secret, there was also a prominent role by Abraham. Finding Abraham was an important piece of the manifesting puzzle for me.

Each of the people in the movie (and the book) talks about the power of the Law of Attraction and how to use it to create your own reality.


What is The Law of Attraction?

Let’s take a step back a bit and talk about the Law of Attraction. In simplest forms, the Law of Attraction states “Like attracts like.” Things that are similar are attracted to each other.

The idea is that everything in the Universe is made of energy. That includes our world, ourselves, our shoes, the trees outside, the stars, the moon…everything. Everything.

This also includes our thoughts.

Our thoughts are energy.

What this means is that through the Law of Attraction, you can focus your thoughts on something in particular and you can attract it into your life.

Now, if your first thought is “What!? That’s so awesome! I can’t wait to attract everything that I want into my life!”, you’re on the right track. However, it does take some work. Mental work. This blog will be talking all about this type of thing.

If your initial thoughts are “No way! That’s crap. You can’t attract whatever you want into your life. My life sucks!” Well, I hate to break it to you, but you attract everything into your life, whether you know it or not. And if you’re saying your life sucks, then just think about this…


Thoughts Become Things

Bob Proctor is a prominent person in The Secret Law of Attraction book, and one of his famous quotes is:

“Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.”

If you’re telling yourself that your life sucks, that’s what you’re seeing in your mind, and that’s what you’re getting in your life. It’s as simple as that.

We are going to be working on this more, don’t worry. This whole site is dedicated to changing our thoughts, our habits and our actions to create the world around us that we want.


It’s Not Just Wishing

I’ve seen many people bash The Secret and Law of Attraction in general because they have this idea that all you have to do is wish for something and it’ll automatically show up in front of you.

That’s not how it works at all.

T. Harv Eker, author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind says it like this:

Thoughts –> Feelings –> Actions –> Results

Thoughts lead to feelings, which lead to actions, which leads to results.

I’ll be doing some longer posts about how things have come into my own life through Law of Attraction as time goes on, but I’ll give you a shortened version of the manifestation of my house.


Thoughts –> First, my husband and I had a list of what we wanted in a house. Through talking about it and thinking about it, we visualized what we wanted.

Feelings –> We had a contract on a house that had some things we visualized, but it didn’t feel right. My intuition told me it wasn’t quite right and that we had to look again.

Action –> I told my husband we had to look one more time. We found a “For Sale By Owner” sign in the window of a house that has EVERYTHING we had on our house list.

Results –> Through pretty crazy circumstances we were able to get out of the contract of the other house and we now live in the “perfect” house.


Listening to your intuition is a major factor in getting what you want out of life. If you’re really, really clear on what you want, your internal self and the Universe will show you the way to get there through circumstances, ideas and nudges.

Now, sometimes your brain will get in the way and try to tell you something, and that something doesn’t always lead to the easiest path. When you have an intuitive thought, it just feels different. It’s almost like you can’t not do the thing you’re thinking about. It’s inspired action. It feels good and natural.

Try to think of a time in your life when you couldn’t not be, do or have something. Can you remember how thoughts led to feelings, which led to action, which led to results? This is how Law of Attraction truly works.

The real key in all of this is…


You Have to Be REALLY Clear on What You Want

This might actually be the hardest part in the whole system. Knowing exactly what you want. Since you always get what you think about, you’ve got to be sure your thoughts are pointed in the direction of what you want.

A lot of times, our thoughts are wishy-washy. So we end up with wishy-washy results.

Once you are clear and make a FIRM DECISION about that thing that you truly want, it HAS to come. It’s Law. It may not come in the way you expect, so try not to expect anything. It will likely come in the most awesome, amazing completely unexpected way. THAT’S the way you want it to be. THAT’S the fun way!

I suggest reading books and watching movies like The Secret and finding YouTube videos and websites of the people in The Secret. Why?

#1. You can learn from people who have figure out how to get exactly what they want in life.
#2. It will inspire you, make you feel positive and help you think about what you want in your life.

I also hope that this site will help point you in the direction of what you want and how to get there through inspired action. When that does happen to you, can you please let me know about it by posting in the comments below? It will inspire others and help them realize this is a real thing.

In fact, if you’ve already deliberately manifested something in your life through the Law of Attraction, post it below. I love a good LOA story!

  1. LOVE this book so much. I also love the documentary on Netflix, it’s great to watch when I need a reminder that I am in control of my life, my thoughts, and my actions. We can create our own destiny! Thanks for sharing, I highly recommend anything having to do with the Secret!

  2. I found this article really intresting, I’ve never watched the movie and never really paid much attention to the laws of attraction (always thought it was more a relationship thing than a life/ spiritual thing).

    However, I have always believed that life is what you make of it and the power of positive thinking. So, I suppose I do believe in the laws of attraction without even realising it.

    1. Yes, it sounds like you’ve got it! You don’t really need to know the law to apply it. Life is absolutely what you make of it – good or bad. You might find the movie or the book interesting, but it sounds like you’re already on the right track.

  3. Hi there. I’ve never heard of this book or seen the movie. But I do believe what you have written about here.
    I recently made some changes in my life. I had wanted to make these changes for so long, and the opportunities would come along, but I was too afraid to take that next step. That may not make any sense to you, but it is how it was with me. I am finding that my biggest enemy it getting what I want out of life has always been… me. I’ve dreamed the big dreams. But when reality would show itself that I could accomplish anything, I would always back off because I was afraid of failure. But not anymore!! I learned that true failure is not being willing to try and take those first steps. I’ve taken those first steps. I’m so glad I did. I’m seeing success. I’m loving the life I’m living now. I will be purchasing this book today. Thanks so much for this valuable information.
    All the best.

    1. What you wrote absolutely makes sense to me. I think fear holds us all back. I know it’s definitely a problem for me. But every time I do something new and ‘scary”, it always turns out to be something that I’m glad I did. This quote by Joseph Campbell is so perfect: “The Cave You Fear to Enter Holds the Treasure You Seek.” It sounds like you’ve started to enter that cave and gather your treasure. Good for you!

  4. I am a big believer in The Secret! I first was introduced to it in 2007 and though it was a load. Fast forward to now – and it is basically how I live my life day to day. Great article! thank you for sharing 🙂

    1. Excellent news! I believe that we all live it day-to-day as Law of Attraction is a Universal law. It’s just that most people don’t know that they’re using it. But once you do, the power is in your hands and it’s such a great feeling knowing that you can work with this law to create your life exactly the way you want it. Thanks for stopping by!
