The Secret Behind ‘The Secret’
Many people read ‘The Secret’ in awe, bringing forth this new revelation into their lives. A secret to a bigger house, a faster car, an amazing new job and the perfect relationship. The steps were simple, repeat affirmations, create a vision board and think positive.
It worked for some; the big house, the car, the relationship and the promotion. For others it wasn’t so easy. Some people no matter how hard they tried, affirmed and glued their vision boards together, they still didn’t get what they asked for. The universe just wasn’t listening……..or so it seemed.
Let me enlighten you on something, whether you get what you ask for or you don’t, the real question should be are you happy? Why would gaining all those things you asked for not make you happy? Well, because the ‘law of attraction’ means that you always get more of what you put out. If you are asking for ‘stuff’ you will create ‘more asking’, if you keep on asking, you create ‘more want’ and if you create ‘more want’ you get more ‘lack’. In other words, if you ‘want more’, you ‘lack more’. What you are very effectively creating is discontentment.
The ‘law of attraction’ and ‘the secret’ are correct in what they teach but the way in which it is taught is inevitably going to have you running around in circles of creation. These circles of creation will create a feeling of dissatisfaction, of never having enough or in the case of those who have failed to manifest very little, complete despondency. Despondency is a dangerous place to be because it is a fear-based emotion which can grow into dis-ease of the physical world.
It’s important to understand the dynamics of creation and the existence in which we are having this physical experience. The whole of the physical world is made of vibrating molecules which are made up of indivisible atoms. The atoms are vibrating at a frequency which our receptors in the brain evaluate with a sophisticated ‘memory code programme’, this in turn creates how we see the vibrating atoms. This all happens rather quickly so we see a bunch of vibrating atoms and our memory bank tells us ‘it’s a coffee table’. However, if our memory bank told us it was a sofa, since we would have no reason to doubt our memory bank, that is the experience we would have. Therefore, the whole world is based on what our perception of it is. Our perception gives meaning to the world around us based on our past experience or memory bank. If we have no previous memory of something, then we either learn about it or attach it to the nearest memory we can. In fact, all of the physical world is simply that which we give meaning to and is therefore much more illusionary than reality.
This should help you to understand that its our perception of the physical world that creates our reality and makes the things around us believable. These ‘believable’ images around us create feelings towards the perception, which in turn works with the creative life force energy (which is our ‘true self’) to continue to create ‘the experience of life’. The experience we have which we call life, although appears to be shared is actually our own based on the that which we create through our illusionary perception. Remember those vibrating atoms? In a nut shell ‘we’ create the life we have based, on our thoughts, feelings, passed experiences and creative life force energy. Therefore, as described in ‘The Secret’ we ARE capable of creating anything which we wish to bring in this ‘experience’ we are having, although from a deeper perspective than which the secret would have us believe.
Unfortunately, the information in ‘The Secret’ was well intentioned but was huge mis-education to many people who started to ‘manifest’ the material things they desired. These people are now in one of two places:
a. They got more discontent, manifested more ‘lack’, more ‘need’ and more ‘desire’; subsequently giving up on ‘The Secret’ entirely.
b. They had measured success, continued to investigate manifestation on a deeper level and are either on the journey towards or have discovered the truths of manifestation and abundance.
The secret behind ‘The Secret’ lies not in the understanding of the laws of the universe but the knowing that you ARE the universe. When you understand fully that you are not just inherently a creative being but are in fact an extension of all creation, you can fully appreciate your power. When you understand your power you also understand the responsibility which goes hand in hand with that power.
It actually puts theories like ‘fate’ and ‘if its meant to be, it will be’ and ‘whatever is God’s will’ completely out the window and down the garden path.
You can begin to understand that you create it all; from the bed your sleeping in, to the brand of toothpaste you use, the bus driver who takes you to work and your conversation with the receptionist as you arrive. Are you creating from a place of love, peace, gratitude and stillness? Or are you creating from greed, fear, lack, guilt and shame? Most people flip between the two places which is why they have a ying and yang experience of reality.
Understand that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world and you can start to appreciate that the self-destructive relationship, the boring job, the bills that need paying and that little baby which makes you smile, all come from your ying and yang belief systems.
People talk about default and conscious creation. It’s my belief that we create by default 100% of the time. Always creating from the heart means that what ever your heart is filled with is what will come out, thus creating your physical experience.
What does this mean for you? It means what you fear it means… it means that you are creating by default based on your inner world and deep-seated beliefs that you hold about yourself and the world around you. So, if you suffered abandonment, neglect, trauma – your world is most likely in trouble.
Doing the work to heal your inner world is the only way to create joy and happiness in your physical reality. It takes work and a willingness to let love in and is a far cry from affirmations and a vision board.
What I am suggesting is that if you look at the deepest, darkest place within yourself and then send love and light to those places you will indeed start to allow love and light into your physical reality. I’m talking about facing your fears, practicing forgiveness and giving unconditional love to all places in your mind. Its only by understanding that you are the unconditional love you seek will it start to show up in your life.
I was walking up hill with a heavy shopping bag, I was tired and hot. I felt for a moment detached from my physical body. I felt transported into the clouds and then I heard God’s voice (or what I perceived to be God’s voice) and its said to me “You are enough”. Of course, in that moment of complete clarity I realised that, I am enough! I can’t truly ever need or want more than what I have got in this present moment, because if I truly needed something I would have it. The feeling of wanting more is actually an illusion created by my own false self.
The real secret behind ‘The Secret’ is that you will always create from internal, from true self, from the heart and never will you create from your false perception. Which is why when people want to manifest winning the lottery, if they do not feel truly deserving or truly at peace with winning the lottery it will not happen. If you wish to manifest money you have to go deep within your self and heal any feelings of unworthiness you have ingrained within you. If you wish to create a mutually loving and beneficial relationship, you need to heal the way you are loving yourself and if you wish to create a family then you have to forgive anyone who broke your trust. We manifest our lives from the inside out. This is the true secret, that which is not really a secret at all, but indeed a divine truth. If you wish to create perfect health, wealth, love and happiness then you have to be all those things inside. You have to love your body, let go of all fears of money and material possessions and know that you truly deserve happiness. As God is manifested within you, so shall you be.
